papyrusspell1An ancient Christian magical spell or charm from the sixth century has been found in an old papyrus manuscript housed at the John Rylands Library in Manchester, England. The discoverer, Dr. Roberta Mazza, believes the Greek charm, originally unearthed in Egypt, was part of an amulet to be worn or carried as protection, as reported by Phys.org.

History like you’ve never heard it before!
There’s a resistance and sovereignty movement for self-determination and self-governance by Hawaiian natives that few people know or seem to care about. It is estimated that native Hawaiians and other Pacific islanders make up only about 10% of the current population of Hawaii.
What should the natives of Hawaii do? Lob missiles at the cities where non-natives live? Strap on suicide-bomb vests and attack cafes and museums? Use children, schools and hospitals as shields so that civilian casualties can be cited in order to garner support? Enlist the assistance of foreign countries to provide weapons, which natives then smuggle into the land? Should their leaders abscond with foreign aid and live in luxury, while using the commoners as cannon fodder? Is violence really the answer?
And why do so few people know about this issue of invasion, occupation and usurpation of Hawaii? Where are the rallies in support of the Hawaiian natives? The global street marches on their behalf? The nonstop media drumbeating and riling up of the irate masses? Why aren’t concerned American humanitarians leaving the islands in droves and restoring them to the natives? Where is the uproar against the United States government for this “illegal occupation?”
While Hawaiian natives generally peacefully attempt to draw attention to their situation, with little success, relatively violent cultures seem to have no problem creating outrage and justification for violent assaults based on similar calls for a sovereign state. Why is humanity responding to the violence and thuggery, rather than the peaceful efforts? Why reward violence while ignoring peace?

No sympathy here, as his site stole my books, and my inquiries about removing them were met with “Tough shite.” Some of us actually have to WORK for a living and have families to take care of. Such THEFT causes hardship for CHILDREN.
Hot off the presses and in time for the biblical brainwashing onslaught! Here’s more of the antidote!
LOL! In the first place, this guy’s name, Ahmad Al-Gamal, suggests that he is an Arab Muslim, not a native Egyptian. The invasion of Egypt by Arab Muslims did far more damage than any alleged plagues by the Jewish tribal god Yahweh. And this damage continues to this day, with Muslim fanatics destroying Egyptian antiquities.
