3. Passages from the Bible discovered behind Qur’an manuscript

(I think we can all understand why this story was worth posting. Its practically a metaphor for everything taking place in the West for the past 20 years or so.)

The only recorded palimpsest in which a Christian text has been effaced to make way for the Islamic holy text is to go on sale at Christie’s

An “extraordinary” discovery by an eagle-eyed scholar has identified the shadowy outlines of passages from the Bible behind an eighth-century manuscript of the Qur’an – the only recorded palimpsest in which a Christian text has been effaced to make way for the Islamic holy text.

 

French scholar Dr Eléonore Cellard was looking for images of a palimpsest page sold a decade earlier by Christie’s when she came across the auction house’s latest catalogue, which included fragments from a manuscript of the Qur’an which Christie’s had dated to the eighth century AD, or the second century of Islam. Scrutinising the image, she noticed that, appearing faintly behind the Arabic script, were Coptic letters. She contacted Christie’s, and they managed to identify the Coptic text as coming from the Old Testament’s Book of Deuteronomy – part of the Torah and the Christian Old Testament.

World’s biggest DDoS-for-hire souk shuttered, masterminds cuffed

Cops yesterday cuffed IT admins behind the “world’s biggest DDoS marketplace”, webstresser.org, Europol has confirmed.

 

Europol said Webstresser.org had 136,000 registered users and four million attacks measured by April 2018, targeting online services from banks, government institutions, police forces and the gaming world.

Operation Power Off, as the investigation was code-named, was led by Dutch police and Britain’s National Crime Agency with support from a dozen law enforcement agencies around the world, including Europol’s Cybercrime Centre.

 

“Stressed websites make powerful weapons in the hands of cybercriminals,” said Jaap van Oss, Dutch chairman of the Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce.

“International law enforcement will not tolerate these illegal services and will continue to pursue its admins and users,” he added.

The BBC puts it this way:

A website blamed for launching more than four million cyber-attacks around the world, including attempts to crash banks in the UK, has been taken down in a major international investigation.

 

The operation, which involved the UK’s National Crime Agency, blocked Webstresser.org – which allows criminals to buy attacks on businesses.

The site was used by a British suspect to attack high street banks last year, causing hundreds of thousands of pounds of damage.

 

Six suspected members of the gang behind the site have been arrested, with computers seized in the UK, Holland and elsewhere.

Thank you Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, and all who sent in materials and there are a lot of you. Please keep it coming.

Later this evening, a new Brad Johnson interview, this time on the attack in Toronto.

Also the photo below was taken by Snaphanen.Dk:

  1. 1 and 2 tell a very chilling story about Britain, the British government has lost control of their nation and are still forbidding the ethnic British and the immigrants who assimilated into their culture from defending themselves. With the situation deteriorating daily this is a recipe for a major upraising by the ethnic Brits.

  2. 3. Passages from the Bible discovered behind Qur’an manuscript

    As a child, I was eternally fascinated by parchment, calligraphy, Carolingian Minuscule, and fonts in general. This obsession even included fairy tales … once upon a time.

    Suffice to say that seeing the word, “palimpsest” appear at a website is enough to make magic.

    • Not when it is the “grauniard” that is the source as reading that article made me want to vomit. It seems that the left automatically see overwriting a Christian book as okay but not doing similar to an Islamic one.
