Hasankeyf is the most popular area of the vicinity due to its historic wealth. The city stands as living evidence to the multifaceted cultural foundations of the Arabs, Seljuks, Mongolians and Ottomans and houses a plethora of valuable remnants from the past. The place is a major tourist attraction with its unlimited treasure of antique civilizations. Sadly, most of it will be lost under the flows of rivers after the completion of the GAP project for building dams in the region. Work is already on to salvage as much of historical evidence as possible.
The golden era of Hasankeyf was as the capital of the Artuklu Seljucks. A grand fortress was built during the time on wonderful limestone structures. The remains of the fortress are a sight to be seen. The other spots of prominence are the wide bridge over Tigris, the Ulu Mosque, the Cizre Bridge, Carsi Mosque, Veysel Karani tomb, Zeynel Bey's tomb, Rizk Mosque, Koc Mosque and Eyyubi Tomb. Most of these historical representations are symbols of the architectural and aesthetic tastes of the flourishing civilizations.
Currently, tourists will find small rest rooms and eating joints in the numerous caves of Hasankeyf. You can enjoy a truly remarkable experience when you see history so closely in the magnificent remnants of the place.
This mosque - the Ulu of Great Mosqu - in the Kale region is from 1325, it is called the oldest monument of the Eyyubians on a notice nearby. Under it are big tanks for storing huge quantities of water.
This is the minaret or what's left of it.
The jewels are the ancient citadel and several mosques, in particular, Ulu Mosque. Also visit the world's oldest universities at Midyat and Mardin Darulzafeyran where you will discover highlights of Assyrian civilization.
Sarab Al Urdun (Jordan) by Guy Manoukian
Sarab is a fusion of electro and a mixture of arab assyrian greek armenian and chaldean melodies.
Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, (Arabic: الأردنّ al-Urdunn) is a country in Southwest Asia spanning the southern part of the Syrian Desert down to the Gulf of Aqaba. It shares borders with Syria to the north, Iraq to the north-east, Israel and the West Bank to the west, and Saudi Arabia to the east and south. It shares the coastlines of the Dead Sea and Gulf of Aqaba with Israel, the West Bank, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Much of Jordan is covered by desert land, particularly the Arabian Desert, however the north-western area, with the sacred Jordan River is regarded as part of the Fertile Crescent.
The capital city, Amman, is in the north-west. Jordan has a rich history, its location in the central Middle East has long made it a prized possession. During its long history, Jordan has seen numerous civilisations, including ancient eastern civilisations the Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Mesopotamian and Persian empires. Jordan was for a time part of Pharaonic Egypt and spawned the native Nabatean civilisation who left rich archaeological remains at Petra. Cultures from the west also left their mark such as the Macedonian, Roman and Byzantine empires. Since the seventh century the area has been under Muslim and Arab cultures, with the exception of a brief period under British rule.
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a constitutional monarchy with representative government. The reigning monarch is the head of state, the chief executive and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. The king exercises his executive authority through the prime ministers and the Council of Ministers, or cabinet. The cabinet, meanwhile, is responsible before the elected House of Deputies which, along with the House of Notables (Senate), constitutes the legislative branch of the government. The judicial branch is an independent branch of the government.
Video summary of the ALDE Seminar on Persecuted Christian Minorities
Event date: 05/03/08 15:00 to 19:00
Location: Room ASP 1G2, European Parliament, Brussels
Persecuted Christian Minorities form one part of wider human rights and religious rights issues. Although it would be possible to speak about different religious and forms of discrimination, the focus of this seminar is on Christians. Disinformation leads to discrimination and through this seminar we hope to dispel myths and notions that do not accurately reflect reality.
This parliament has taken a firm stand for persecuted Christians in a resolution, which mentioned countries of Asia and Middle East which will be discussed. Situation in China, Assyrian minority in Iraq and Palestinian Christians are included in today's program, as examples of the difficulties Christian minorities face. These difficulties range from harassment to murder and this seminar seeks to inform the audience about this grim reality.
There is a plenty of time for discussion following the presentations and the audience will be challenged to think of something to improve things, not just to hear about them.
Hannu Takkula and István Szent-Iványi.

The Cedars of God (also known as the Cedars of the Lord or Arz el Rab or أرز الربّ in arabic ) are among the last survivors of the immense forests of the Cedars of Lebanon that thrived across Mount Lebanon in ancient times. Their timber was exploited by the Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians as well as the Phoenicians. The wood was especially prized by Egyptians for shipbuilding; Solomon used them in the construction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and the Ottoman Empire also used the cedars to build its railroad system.
Le cèdre du Liban (ou Cedrus libani) est un arbre conifère de la famille des Pinaceae. La grande caractéristique du cèdre du liban provient de son port qui conique durant ses 30 premières années, devient tabulaire par la suite.
Cedrus libani (Lebanon Cedar or Cedar of Lebanon), is a species of cedar native to the mountains of the Mediterranean region, in Lebanon, western Syria and south central Turkey, with varieties of it (some treated as separate species by some authors) in southwest Turkey, Cyprus, and the Atlas Mountains in Algeria and Morocco in northwest Africa. The Cedars Conservancy parks in Lebanon are candidates in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition.
Tripoli (Trablous طربلس en arabe) est la seconde ville du Liban, avec près de 500 000 habitants. Elle se situe au nord du Liban, à 85 kilomètres de Beyrouth. Elle possède un grand port commercial qui se trouve sur le territoire d'une municipalité sœur, El-Mina, inséparable de Tripoli, quoique autonome.La majorité de la population est musulmane.
Tripoli a la réputation de ville paisible par excellence.
Son nom vient du grec Tripolis, elle fut nommée ainsi du fait de sa séparation en trois parties distinctes par les commerçants venant de Tyr, Sidon et Aradis.
A partir de 1070, Tripoli est sous la domination des Banû Ammâr, qui se sont rendus indépendants des califes fatimides d'Égypte. En 1102, lors de la première croisade, la ville fut assiégée par Raymond IV de Toulouse et défendue par le qâdî Fakhr al-Mulk. Le siège dura près de 10 ans, infligeant de lourds dégâts à la ville, qui tomba aux mains des croisés en 1109. Elle fut ensuite, durant le temps des croisades, la capitale du comté de Tripoli, l'un des principaux États francs du Levant. En 1289, les mamelouks, emmenés par le sultan Qala'ûn, conquirent la ville.Du temps des Mamelouks, Tripoli garde encore un cachet tout spécial constitué par les nombreux monuments religieux reconnus par les couleurs blanches et noires de leurs façades. La vieille ville renferme des mosquées hors du commun comme celle de Taynal, Moaalaq, Tahham, Bortasiyyeh, etc.
On retrouve dans le cœur de Tripoli, souk El Bazerkane, souk Al-Attarine, Bab el Ramal, des vieilles maisons ou des anciens palais marqués par le temps et les décennies de négligence, témoins du faste de la ville. Maisons méconnues, car cachées.
Pendant les conflits, entre 1975 et 1990, des affrontements se sont déroulés à Tripoli comme dans toutes les grandes villes du Liban.La ville est connue pour abriter la forteresse Saint-Gilles. Cette forteresse fut la résidence des seigneurs du comté de Tripoli. Elle est aujourd'hui un lieu touristique.
Tripoli (Lebanese Arabic: طرابلس Ṭrāblos or Ṭrēblos, Standard Arabic: Ṭarābulus; Greek: Τρίπολις Tripolis) is a city in Lebanon. Situated north of Batroun and the cape of Lithoprosopon, Tripoli is the capital of the North Governorate and the district of the same name. The city is located 85 km north of the capital Beirut, and can be described as the easternmost port of Lebanon.
In ancient times, it was the center of a Phoenician confederation which included Tyre, Sidon and Arados, hence the name Tripoli, meaning "triple city" in Greek. Later, it was controlled successively by the Assyrian Empire, Persian Empire, Roman Empire, the Caliphate, the Seljuk Empire, Crusader States, the Mamluks, and the Ottoman Empire. The Crusaders established the County of Tripoli there in the twelfth century.
Triplo is today the second-largest city and second-largest port in Lebanon, with approximately 500,000 inhabitants, mainly Sunni Muslims , along with fairly large communities of Christians and Alawite Muslims. The city borders El Mina, the port of the Tripoli district, which it is geographically conjoined with to form the greater Tripoli conurbation.

The Cedars of God (Arabic: أرز الربّ "Cedars of the Lord") are among the last survivors of the immense forests of the Cedars of Lebanon that thrived across Mount Lebanon in ancient times. Their timber was exploited by the Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians as well as the Phoenicians. The wood was especially prized by Egyptians for shipbuilding; Solomon used them in the construction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and the Ottoman Empire also used the cedars to build its railroad system. Once Lebanon was shaded by thick cedar forests, so it is no coincidence that the tree is the symbol of the entire country. Today, after centuries of persistent deforestation, the extent of this forest heritage has been markedly reduced. The trees however, do survive in mountainous areas and there they seem to reign supreme. This is the case of the slopes of Mount Makmel that tower over the Kadisha Valley where, at an altitude of more than 2000 meters, rest the Cedars of God. Four of them have reached a height of 35 meters and their trunks are between 12 and 14 meters around. Concern for the Biblical Cedars of God goes back to 1876 when the 102-hectare grove was surrounded by a high stone wall, which was financed by Great Britain's Queen Victoria. The wall protects against goats who enjoy feasting on young saplings.In 1998, the Cedars of God were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.The forest is rigorously protected. It is possible to tour it escorted by an authorized guide. Recently, after a preliminary phase in which the land was cleared of detritus, the sick plants treated, and the ground fertilized, a massive reforestation program, initiated by the "Committee of the Friends of the Cedar Forest" in 1985, was undertaken. The fruits of these efforts, will only be appreciable in a few decades since cedars grow so slowly. In these areas the winter offers incredible scenery, and the trees are covered with a blanket of snow.The Lebanon Cedar is mentioned over 70 times in the Bible, for example:
"The priest shall take cedarwood and hyssop and scarlet stuff, and cast them into the midst of the burning of the heifer" (Numbers 19:6).
"The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like the cedar in Lebanon" (Psalm 92:12).
"I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive" (Isaiah 41: 19).
"Behold, I will liken you to a cedar in Lebanon, with fair branches and forest shade" (Ezekiel 31:3).
"I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars" (Amos 2:9).
"The trees of the LORD are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted." (Isaiah 2:13 NIV).
The Cedars of Lebanon were also mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Cedri di Dio (noti anche come Cedri del Signore o Horsh Arz el-Rab) sono gli ultimi resti dell'immensa foresta di cedri del Libano che una volta ricopriva il Monte Libano. I suoi alberi vennero sfruttati da Assiri, babilonesi e Persiani, fino ai Fenici. Il legno era particolarmente ricercato tra gli egizi per la costruzione delle navi; Re Salomone lo usò per la costruzione del suo tempio mentre l'impero ottomano adoperò il cedro per la costruzione del sistema stradale.Una vola il Libano era coperto da fitte foreste di cedri, per cui non appare strano che sia diventato il simbolo dell'intero Paese. Ad oggi, dopo secoli di deforestazione, l'estensione della foresta si è ridotta in modo considerevole. Gli alberi sopravvivono nelle zone montuose dove l'ambiente è ancora incontaminato. È il caso delle pendici del monte Makmel che si eleva dalla Valle di Qadisha dove, oltre i 2000 metri, si trovano tuttora i cedri di Dio. Quattro di loro hanno raggiunto un'altezza di 35 metri ed i loro tronchi hanno una circonferenza di 12/14 metri.L'attenzione ai biblici Cedri di Dio risale al 1876 quando 102 ettari di foresta vennero cintati da un muro in pietra, finanziato dalla regina Vittoria del Regno Unito. Il muro proteggeva gli alberi dalle capre che amavano cibarsi dei giovani alberelli.Nel 1998 i Cedri di Dio vennero aggiunti ai patrimoni dell'umanità dell'UNESCO.La foresta è rigorosamente protetta. È possibile visitarla grazie alle guide autorizzate. Recentemente è stato fatto partire un programma di riforestazione che è stato preceduto dalla pulizia dei sedimenti, dalla cura delle piante malate e dalla fertilizzazione del terreno. I frutti di questi sforzi saranno apprezzabili solo tra alcuni decenni dal momento che i cedri crescono molto lentamente. In questa zona l'inverno offre scenari incredibili, con gli alberi coperti da una coltre bianca.
he Sports Fishing Portal is dedicated to bringing you the guide,tips and info about fishing activity.Sports Fishing Portal's aim is to help develop this potential in order to establish Malaysia as a top destination for anglers and sports fishing enthusiasts.Sports Fishing Portal will share everything about sport fishing activity around the world including salt water fishing,freshwater fishing, fly fishing, game fishing, sport fishing ,jigging and popping.
FISHING, also called ANGLING, is the sport of catching fish, freshwater or saltwater, typically with rod, line, and hook. Like hunting, fishing originated as a means of providing food for survival.
www.cha4u.myportal.my,Fishing as a sport, however, is of considerable antiquity. An Egyptian angling scene of about 2000 BC shows figures fishing with rod and line and with nets. A Chinese account of about the 4th century BC refers to fishing with a silk line, a hook made from a needle, and a bamboo rod, with cooked rice as bait. References to fishing are also found in ancient Greek, Assyrian, Roman, and Jewish writings.
