Yom HaShoah – יום השואה – Day of Remembrance

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

Welcome to all once again, to another posts from Ras Tafari Renaissance! I, Lidj Yefdi, will bring to you yet another thought provoking “word-sound”(presentation) that is sure to get your attention, if you’re not faculties are intact. If there not, hopefully this will awaken them.

zachor- remember

Zacor – Hebrew word with the meaning; “remember”

Today, is not so much a joyous event or day commemoration but yet a somber, and more day reflection for especially for the Hebrews, and the Hebrew-minded peoples, with the exception of the children of the peoples who also suffered many persecutions upon the day which this is marked.  As an Ethiopian-Hebrew, of the tribe of Yihuda, I extend my condolences, my prayers for strength, of mind, body and spirit and soul, to those who also share the grief of recalling the remembrances of this day.

יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה
Yom Ha’Shoah; Holocaust Remembrance Day, memorial day set in place by David ben Gurion and Yitzhak ben Zvi, in the State of Israel. Yom Ha’Shoah commemorates the Jewish people who perished during the Holocaust in Europe, during World War II.

In this post, I will give reflection on the commemoration which has its place on this day. To so many, who come into the Judaic faith, (in one way or another), today has its significance in there hearts and minds. Why???,…Well, today is a day when one should take the time to examine their own life and truly look upon how they value themselves, as well as, others. Today is what has become a  memorial to those slain in the perilous times of World War II, and suffered nearly endlessly at the hands of Nazi-Germany and Nazism, as a whole.

In this presentation, I will do my best to refrain from giving every single detail of the horrific events that took place during this time.

(I will leave that up to YOU ALL to educate yourselves & teach your children along with those around you, what kind of importance this matter has!)

But not only the European-Jews but, many other people were subjugated to physical torture, castration, euthanasia, toil, despair, and many other horrid acts. So, in this day in age, though many things have changed, I can clearly see, by JAH’s(God ALMIGHTY) grace that many things have stayed the same.

But, it should be no excuse to not educate yourself, and those whom we continue to say, “hold the future in their hands” about how to treat people, conduct themselves in a civil manner, stand on truth, and take heed to moral principles.

May Day – Independence Day – 05/05/1941′ (Imperial Ethiopia)

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the on the Imperial Ethiopian Independence day commemoration.  Imperial Ethiopia, should be the parallel path that any Ras Tafarian should look to walk(trod).  His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie I and Her Imperial Majesty Menen Asfaw, showed the poise of ice cubes, while their country was yet, cleverly planned on being relieved of his(Haile Sellassie I’s) guidance, by unnatural powers.  But, by the impeccable strategy, honesty, courage, & just cause-and-effect action….Ethiopia, has remained an Unconquerable Land to the colonist regime, to this date.  So, here on 5th of May, Imperial Ethiopian celebrates its Independence as a memorial, and triumph over the Fascist, & colonial ex-ruling powers.

On 5 May 1941, exactly five years after Addis Ababa fell to Mussolini‘s troops, Emperor Haile Selassie was re-installed on the Ethiopian throne. He reentered the city through streets lined with black and white soldiers, having fought his way back against a determined Italian army with Major Orde Wingate’s Gideon Force and his own Ethiopian ‘Patriots”.

Haile Sellassie I, had made an impassioned appeal to the League of Nations on 30 June 1936, which gained great support with the United States and Russia. However, many other League of Nations members, especially Britain and France, continued to recognize the Italian possession of Ethiopia.

In 1935 Italian soldiers commanded by Marshal Emilio De Bono invaded Ethiopia in what is known as the Second Italo-Abyssinian War. The war lasted seven months before an Italian victory was declared. The invasion was condemned by theLeague of Nations, though not much was done to end the hostility.

During the conflict, Italy used mustard gas, ignoring the Geneva Protocol that it had signed seven years earlier. The Italian military dropped mustard gas in bombs, sprayed it from airplanes, and spread it in powdered form on the ground. 150,000 chemical casualties were reported, mostly from mustard gas. In the aftermath of the war Italy annexed Ethiopia, uniting it with Italy’s other colonies in eastern Africa to form the new colony of Italian East Africa, and Vittorio Emmanuel III adopted the title “Emperor of Abyssinia.”

On 10 June 1940, Italy declared war on the United Kingdom and France, as France was in the process of being conquered by Germany at the time and Benito Mussolini wished to expand Italy’s colonial holdings. An Italian invasion of British Somaliland, in August 1940 was successful, but the war turned against Italy afterward. Haile Sellassie I returned to Ethiopia from England to help rally the resistance. The British began their own invasion in January 1941, and the last organized Italian resistance in Italian East Africa surrendered in November 1941. The British restored Ethiopia’s independence.
