Is there any revival happening in the world today?

nope: there is a lot of hooplah and charismaticism but the descering spirit and the prophesy tells us we arre in the gleaning time, the final gathering. Look up the word gleaniing. Of course there is! There is a revival going on in Uganda. The aids rate has fallen by more than 50%. Though we are in the gleaning time, the Prophet Joel says that in the last days, God will pour out his spirit on all people. There are people coming to the Lord in the millions in Nigeria and people even getting raised from the dead. There is pockets of revival in India, China and even America. New Zealand is yet to experience one, but we are praying.

Mao Tse Tung
Genocide

Who was Mao Zedong?

Mao Zedong (December 26, 1893 - September 9, 1976), also transliterated as Mao Tse-Tung (in the now less commonly-used Wade-Giles transliteration), was a Chinese Marxist theorist, soldier, and statesman who led China's communist revolution following decades of civil war.

Until his death, Mao retained his unquestionable place in the Politburo of the Communist Party of China since 1943 and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China since 1945.

As a prominent leader and a veteran having fought many battles, Mao, during the Chinese Civil War, led the Communist Party of China (CPC) to a series of victories that drove the Kuomintang (KMT) and its troops to the island of Taiwan.

On October 1, 1949, at Tiananmen Square, Beijing, Mao announced the establishment of the People's Republic of China. From the 1950s onward, Mao pursued his ideals for a strong and prosperous China, endeavoring to rebuild a new functional government and relieve the poverty of the peasants that made up the majority of population in China. However, it has been argued that movements such as the Anti-Rightist Campaign, the Great Leap Forward, and the Cultural Revolution greatly hamstrung China's development, leading to economic hardship, social turmoil and starvation. Although the exact figure is disputed, it is widely believed tens of millions died as a result of such policies.

After Mao had seized power over mainland China in 1949, a personality cult was developed to deify Mao as, for example, the Grand Helmsman and Saviour of China, which increased his domination of the Communist Party of China and the government.

Holocaust
Genocide
The Difference Between

Was the Holocaust an act of genocide?

The Holocaust was a number of distinct genocides operating in parallel. The definition of a genocide is the intentional extermination of a certain racial, ethnic, religious, physically different, or sexually identified group based on their status in that group. The Holocaust has that in spades. Jews, Romani, homosexuals, handicapped, etc. individuals were targeted precisely because of their being in one group or another. Further to the point, the word genocide was coined precisely to discuss the particular crimes committed in the Holocaust.

The arguments in the "NO" camp are laughable. (1) Just because the Jews were not the only subjects of genocide does not mean that the genocide did not occur, just that there was more than just one. Contrast the democides in China, where people were randomly targeted by either hunger or for "not following the rules" with the Holocaust where people were specifically targeted on account of the religions or ethnicities. (2) The failure to be complete in genocide does not stop it from being a genocide. There was clear intent to eliminate as many Jews, as many Romani, etc. as possible. The Nazis were also relatively successful in this. 65% of the pre-war Jewish population in Europe and 70% of the pre-war Romani population were annihilated. The fact that some Jews, Romani and others survived the killing does not stop it from being a genocide.

Genocide

What was the Mamstrassna Massacre?

Answer
It was the murders of John Joyce, his wife, his daughter, his mother, his son and another young boy, who were left for dead.
The murders, although quite shocking, were not as shocking as the trial itself where innocent men were convicted and hanged.
The crown prosecution at the time also helped to supress evidence that could have led to the men on trial being found innocent.
Some years later there was a confession to the murders but it came too late for the men who, because of a family dispute, had already been hanged.
The court system at the time had to be seen to be getting justice because of the nature of the crime.

Why did the Darfur genocide start?

The Islamic controlled government, located in East Sudan, started the Genocide as an ethnic cleansing of the Darfur region in West Sudan. They "hire" militia groups known as the Janjaweed to attack villages, rape, kill and loot. I have hire in quotations because the government is not paying them, their reward is what they are able to steal. The Darfurians are now being forced out of their lands and into neighboring Chad. So far, no government has intervened in a meaningful way. There have been treaties made with the government of Sudan that they are not sticking to. They assist the Janjaweed in the attacks occasionally with air support. Though they deny it, we know that it is the government assisting them, for they are the only ones who have the knowledge and experience to fly these helicopters as the air support. There has been demands put on China, who has a strong trade system with Sudan as it does with the US, to cut its ties (along with ending its oppression of the people of Tibet) but that also does very little. If the US were to stop trades with China, the Chinese economy would collapse, forcing them to give in, but the US economy would collapse as well. The UN can and has sent in peace keepers, but they can do very little to help because they cant fire unless being fired upon. And since it is the Darfurians and not the UN peace keepers the Sudanese government wants dead, then there is little if nothing they UN can do to help

In the end, the only solution seems to be military force, which the US can not currently provide due to its entanglements in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Why did world leaders ignore Hitler's genocide against the Jews during the war?

Quite simply, people could not be brought to care in any meaningful way about the Jews. This is not unique to the Jews, however, almost every group that suffers from genocides or democides has found the world similarly unresponsive in most instances.

Armenia
Genocide

What caused the Armenian genocide of 1915?

Unkindness and discrimination were what caused Turks to murder Armenians. I had the pleasure of hosting an exchange student from Armenia, his country still hates the Turks for what they did. They got away with it and to date, they have not been held accountable for their war crimes.

-----

The Armenian nationalist movement wanted to separate but as they were always minor in the region they started terrorizing. This started a civil war.

Armenians started that.

____

There is a very influential lobby that denies the Armenian Holocaust. The Turks had been gleefully massacring the Armenians off and on since 1896. However, any mention of the Armenian genocide sends the modern Turkish government into a fit of blind rage. In Turkey you can be sent to prison for saying that the Ottoman Empire committed genocide. It's amazing that the Turkish government is allowed to refuse to face up to the past.

The arguments used by denialists are generally very similar, whether they are denying the Nazi genocide of the Jews or the Ottoman genocide of the Armenians. Claims that the victims started it by fighting the bullies are just laughable.

Why did world leaders ignore Hitler's genocide of the Jews during World War 2?

Various explanations have been suggested.

  1. Until mid 1944 they were skeptical the information they received.
  2. They didn't care or were antisemitic.
  3. There was very little they could have done.
  4. They thought it was a distraction from the war effort.
  5. They thought they could help the Jews after Hitler's defeat.
  6. The Holocaust took place mainly in Poland, which was inaccessible to the Allies for most of World War 2.
