En la antigua Grecia, Afrodita , la diosa del amor, tenía una paloma como mascota. In ancient Greece, Aphrodite , the goddess of love, had a pigeon as a pet. La paloma con una rama de olivo en el pico tiene un componente religioso cristiano muy claro. The dove with an olive branch in its beak has a very clear Christian religious component. Este símbolo tiene su origen en el relato bíblico del Diluvio Universal, relatado en el Génesis. This symbol has its origins in the biblical account of Noah’s flood, recounted in Genesis. Según la Biblia, al principio de los tiempos, la maldad de los hombres provocó la ira de Dios, quien decidió exterminar casi toda la vida sobre la tierra, con la excepción de la familia de Noé, que mostraba fidelidad a Él, y una pareja de cada animal puro. According to the Bible, the beginning of time, the wickedness of man incurred the wrath of God, who decided to exterminate almost all life on earth, except Noah’s family, who showed loyalty to him, and a pair of each clean animal. Dios advirtió a Noé que construyera un arca para preservar de la destrucción a su familia ya los animales. God warned Noah to build an ark to preserve from destruction to his family and animals. Entonces Dios hizo llover tan intensamente sobre la Tierra que quedaron cubiertas todas las montañas y murieron todos los animales y los seres humanos que no estaban en el arca de Noé. Then God rained so heavily on Earth that were covered all the mountains, killing all animals and humans that were not in Noah’s ark. Después de cuarenta días, Noé abrió una ventana del arca y soltó una paloma para ver si las aguas habían bajado en la superficie de la tierra. After forty days Noah opened a window of the ark and sent out a dove to see if the waters had receded in the face of the earth. Al cabo de siete días, la paloma volvió al atardecer, trayendo en su pico una rama verde de olivo. After seven days, the dove came in the evening, bringing in its beak an olive branch. significando que la inundación había acabado y que por ende Dios estaba de nuevo en paz con la humanidad. meaning that the flood was over and that therefore God was again at peace with mankind. El uso de este símbolo de paz se intensificó sobre todo en el siglo XX. The use of this symbol of peace was intensified especially in the twentieth century. Uno de los mayores responsables de que la paloma con una rama de olivo se reconozca como símbolo de paz fue el artista Pablo Picasso, quien hizo una serie de dibujos de palomas. One of the most responsible for the dove with an olive branch is recognized as a symbol of peace was the artist Pablo Picasso, who made a series of drawings of doves. Una de ellos sirvió para un cartel del Congreso Mundial por la Paz en 1949, después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. One of them served for a poster of the World Peace Congress in 1949, after World War II.

LA PALOMA de la PAZ

____________________________________

La Paloma” is a popular song, having been produced and reinterpreted in diverse cultures, settings, arrangements, and recordings over the last 140 years. The song was composed and written by Spanish composer Sebastián Iradier (later Yradier) after he visited Cuba in 1861. Iradier may have composed “La Paloma” around 1863, just two years before he died in Spain in obscurity, never to learn how popular his song would become.

The influence of the local Cuban habanera gives the song its characteristic and distinctive rhythm. Very quickly “La Paloma” became popular in Mexico, and soon spread around the world. In many places, including Afghanistan, Mexico, Spain, Hawaii, the Philippines, Germany, Romania, Zanzibar, and Goa it gained the status of a quasi-folk song. Over the years the popularity of “La Paloma” has surged and receded periodically, but never subsided. It may be considered one of the first universal popular hits and has appealed to artists of diverse musical backgrounds.

[edit] The motif

The motif of “La Paloma” (the dove) can be traced back to an episode that occurred in 492 BC preliminary to Darius’ invasion of Greece, a time when the white dove had not yet been seen in Europe.[1] The Persian fleet under Mardonius was caught in a storm off the shore of Mount Athos and being wrecked when the Greeks observed white doves escaping from the sinking Persian ships. This inspired the notion that such birds bring home a final message of love from a sailor who is lost at sea. This theme that a final link of love overcomes death and separation is reflected in “La Paloma”. While the lyrics may not always be true to the original, the soul of the song seems to survive all attempts to recast it in whatever new form and shape there may be and is able to express the tension between separation with loneliness, even death, and love.

[edit] History

“La Paloma” became quickly popular in Mexico. It was a favorite of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, and at the same time the Mexican revolutionaries played and popularized it well. In the 1939 film Juarez, Emperor Maximilian (portrayed by Brian Aherne) requests that it be played during his execution. As Emperor Maximilian was a Habsburg, ships of the Austrian Navy would never play the song.[citation needed]

German and French versions appeared in 1865.[citation needed] In 1899, a performance of the melody by the French Garde Républicaine was one of the first recordings that were made.[citation needed]

New lyrics (not translations) are available in many languages. They typically involve generic images of white doves and true loves. They lack the specificity of the original Spanish, in which a Cuban sailor laments parting from his “Guachinanga chinita” (his adorable Mexican sweetheart), and asks her to cherish his spirit if it returns to her window as a dove. Then he fantasizes that if he does return safely, they will marry and have seven, or even fifteen, children.

In English, a version titled “No More” with lyrics by Don Robertson and Hal Blair was recorded by both Dean Martin and Elvis Presley.[citation needed]

La Paloma has been interpreted by musicians of diverse backgrounds including opera, pop, jazz, rock, military bands, and folk music.

The song entered the Guinness Book of World Records being sung by the largest choir, 88,600 people, in Hamburg on May 9, 2004.[2]

Si a tu ventana llega una Paloma,

trátala con cariño que es mi persona.

Cuéntale tus amores,

bien de mi vida,

corónala de flores que es cosa mía.

La canción fue compuesta y escrita por Sebastián Iradier (más tarde Yradier) después de visitar Cuba en 1861. La primera línea de la canción original es “Cuando salí de la Habana, válgame Dios!”. Probablemente Iradier compuso “La Paloma” en el año 1863, dos años antes de morir en España en el olvido, sin saber la popularidad que alcanzaría su canción. La influencia de la Habanera le da a la canción su ritmo característico y distintivo. Rápidamente “La Paloma” se hizo popular en México, para extenderse luego por todo el mundo. En muchos lugares incluyendo México, España, Hawaii, Alemania, Rumania y Zanzibar, casi ha alcanzado el estatus de canción tradicional. Con el correr de los años la popularidad de “La Paloma” ha crecido y disminuido periódicamente, pero nunca ha desaparecido. Puede considerarse que es uno de los primeros hits populares que han llamado la atención de artistas de los más diversos géneros musicales.

El motivo

El tema de la canción, “Válgame Dios, Gonzalo es La Paloma”, puede tener sus orígenes en un episodio que ocurrió en 492 a. C., antes de la invasión de Darío a Grecia, una época en la que la paloma blanca no era conocida en Europa.1 La tropa persa bajo el mando de Mardonio fue atrapada en una tormenta al pie del Monte Athos y fue destruída cuando los griegos observaron las palomas blancas que escapaban de las naves persas que se hundían. Esto inspiró la noción de que esas aves traían a casa el mensaje de amor de un marinero que está perdido en el mar. Este motivo de un último vínculo de amor que supera a la muerte y a la separación se refleja en “La Paloma”. A pesar de que la letra no siempre sea fiel a la original, el espíritu de la canción parece sobrevivir todos los intentos de reinterpretarla en cualquier nueva forma que pueda haber y es capaz de expresar la tensión entre la separación con soledad, incluso muerte y el amor.

“Todos somos estupidos… Pero cada uno de nosotros, ignora distintas cosas. (Albert Eistein)

“AMO A MI PATRIA, … A QUIEN TEMO ES A MI GOBIERNO” (Anonimo)

La Republica Argentina ingresó al grupo de países civilizados (podríamos decir: “des-salvajizados) con La Constitución Nacional de 1853, que propuso Juan Bautista Alberdi en su libro “Bases y Puntos de Partida Para La Organización Política de La Republica Argentina”

La Provincia de Buenos Aires, y su capital, la ciudad de Buenos Aires, (estrictamente hablando) NO formaron parte del grupo fundador de La Republica Argentina. Por razone$ económica$, Buenos Aires no quería ceder los ingresos aduaneros del puerto más activo y poderoso; y siendo la provincia más rica intento durante 7 años” formar una nación soberana e independiente. Halando en criollo, “intento hacer rancho aparte”. Pero Juan Bautista Alberdi les gano esa pulseada. J. B. ALBERDI no solo fue el autor de nuestra Constitución, fue también el más brillante Canciller de TODA América. JBA no solo escribió “Las Bases…” también escribió otro libro, tan, pero TAN importante que se anticipo varias generaciones al reconocimiento internacional de su valor sobre la discusión en el tema del derecho de las naciones a la guerra. JBA Titulo a ese Libro “EL CRIMEN DE LA GUERRA

Como esto lo escribo pensando principalmente en mis criollos compatriotas americanos de habla inglesa en esta nota solo daré algunas generalidades, y un anuncio.

El anuncio es que: Para cuando pase este bullicio y sea posible dialogar he creado (esta en formacion) un nuevo blog. (En realidad son DOS una version en castellano y la otra en ingles).

1) http://EUdeTA.wordpress.com (Estados Unidos de TODA América)

2) http://USofWA.wordpress.com (United States of WHOLE America)

Al escribir pienso en Uds. pero también en los 30 millones del resto de mis compatriotas tan o MAS desinformados que ninguno.

Intento hablarles de una de las mejores Constituciones del Mundo (la de 1853), de “LAS BASES”, de “GOBERNAR ES POBLAR”, de “EL CRIMEN DE LA GUERRA” y especialmente Del Lema “AMO A MI PATRIA…. A QUIEN TEMO ES A MI GOBIERNO…

Por ahora les anticipo que JB ALBERDI directamente nos habla de este “estúpido conflicto en el Atlantico Sud” claramente nos demuestra (con valor internacional) que “los criminales” de esa guerra NO fueron los militares (de ninguno de los dos bandos, ellos solo fueron las víctimas. Los criminales fueron ambos gobiernos. La Primer ministro Thatcher por un lado y El gobierno militar Argentino sostenido en aquel tiempo por USA. – Pero a no confundir: “Una cosa son los Militares en el GOBIERNO, y otra cosa MUY DISTINTA es los militares en su funcion de SOLDADOS. Por otro lado: si nuestra Presidente (que “se dice es abogada … pero pocos lo creen) leyese a Juan Bautista Alberdi, podria solucionar esto en menos de una semana, Pero no se hagan ilusiones NI siquiera yo lo creo… la solucion vendra de parte de LA GENTE, Uds y nosotros, NO de nuestros gobiernos.

Falkland Islands Anniversary: Argentina Demands Handover Of ‘Las Malvinas’ 30 Years After War

By Brian Hendrie 04/ 2/12 03:36 PM ET

(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/02/falkland-islands-anniversary_n_1396106.html?ref=world)

People walk past the Malvinas Falklands war Memorial in Ushuaia, Argentina, Sunday, April 1, 2012. April 2 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the military confrontation when the country was defeated by the United Kingdomfor the remote archipelago in the South Atlantic, the Falkland Islands, known as the Malvinas by the Argentines.

USHUAIA, Argentina – Argentina’s president said Monday that she’s asked the International Red Cross to persuade Britain to let its DNA experts identify unknown soldiers buried in the Falkland Islands.

Thirty years after Argentina and Britain went to war over the remote South Atlantic archipelago, Cristina Fernandez says universal human rights demand that both countries work together to give those remains back to their families.

Her much-anticipated speech on the anniversary of Argentina’s April 2, 1982 invasion of the islands was focused on promoting dialogue and understanding. She said her government sets a global standard for protecting human rights and vowed to “respect the interests of the islanders” as Argentina seeks to peacefully regain control.

“We don’t have war drums, nor do we wear military helmets. Our only helmets are those of construction workers, working for the inclusion of all,” she said at the city’s Monument to the Fallen, honoring the 649 Argentines who died in the conflict.

SI ESCUCHARAMOS A Juan Bautista ALBERDI, SOLUCIONARIAMOS ESTE “ESTUPIDO” CONFLICTO EN MENOS DE UNA SEMANA!

Prime Minister David Cameron said in London Monday that Britainhad to come to the islanders’ defense in 1982, and will do so again if anyone tries to deprive them of their liberty. The 74-day occupation ended when British troops routed the ill-prepared Argentines in hard-fought trench warfare. In all, 255 British soldiers and three islanders were killed.

Fernandez called Cameron’s statement absurd and ridiculous, noting that Argentines were also deprived of their liberty at the time, living under a 1976-1983 dictatorship, supported by outside powers, that had kidnapped and killed thousands of its own people.

“I am proud of having made promoting human rights one of the pillars of our state,” she said. For this reason, it’s impossible to consider that Argentinawould not also protect the rights of the 3,000 islanders, she argued.

Britain has refused Argentina’s repeated calls to negotiate the islands’ sovereignty, saying it’s up to the islanders to decide. Before, during and after the 1982 conflict, the islanders have over whelmingly said they want to maintain British protection.

For about a year now, Argentinahas been intensifying its campaign to pressure Britaininto sovereignty talks, a theme it pushes in every international forum. Argentina’s historical claim to the islands Latin America knows as Las Malvinas has support across the region, and got moral backing last week from a group of Nobel Peace Prize winners who scolded Britain for ignoring U.N. resolutions urging talks.

Argentinahas tried seemingly every way possible to pressure Britain short of armed conflict. The government has closed off shipping routes and air space. Unions have refused to unload British cargo or accept British-flagged cruise ships. Fernandez’s ministers have sought to close off British imports, sue British investors and banks, and block oil development off the islands’ shores.

It adds up to an “economic war” that has made life difficult, but each move also prompted islanders to develop alternative supply routes, said Dick Sawle, a member of Falkland Islands legislative assembly.

Meanwhile Argentina seems no closer to recovering the territory that fell under British control in 1833, and islanders say there’s little more that can be done to pressure them. “I think that Brazil, Uruguayand Chile will see what they’re missing in theFalklands, and at that point it just becomes a lot of shouting across the water that can be ignored,” Sawle said.

While the president explicitly sought to reassure the islanders several times in Monday’s speech, feelings on both sides have hardened. A group of radical leftists faced off against riot police outside the British embassy in Buenos Aires, and online flame wars have shown no signs of letting up.

“Penguin News” Editor Lisa Watson said she tries to find the right tone as she responds through public Twitter messages. But it didn’t help when Argentines discovered that the newspaper’s photo of Fernandez had been saved under a crude insult.

“It never occurred to us that the filename would be so transparent. It was hugely embarrassing, particularly now as we were seemingly winning the image war,” Watson’s colleague John Fowler said. “Before that, Lisa had been pretty continuously receiving hundreds and hundreds of nasty sexually insulting messages a day.”

Argentina has variously tried to charm, occupy, negotiate and threaten its way back into the islands. In the 1970s, it established a direct air link with Buenos Aires, supplied them with gasoline, paid to educate island children and otherwise tried to build ties. Britainwas lobbying the islanders to accept a Hong Kong-style handover before the junta decided to invade.

For many islanders and Argentines, those 74 days of armed occupation remain the only personal connection they’ve had.

There were other attempts to build ties in the 1990s – a series of agreements on shared fishing and oil rights, shipping and air links and other exchanges – but nearly were abandoned in 2003 when Fernandez and her late husband and predecessor, Nestor Kirchner, began trying to isolate the islands instead.

“Thirty years and now we find it again, we are worried we are going to go through it all again, another invasion,” islander Mary Lou Agman said at Sunday’s commemorative march in Stanley by the small Falkland Islands Defense Force.

Islanders should relax, because another invasion will never happen, said James Peck, an islander with dual Falklands-Argentine nationality after marrying an Argentine and moving to Buenos Aires, said he saw the pre-anniversary war of words “fueling itself and becoming hysterical.”

“Someone has to speak out for common sense,” he said. “For me Argentina has real dignity these days, and I’m amazed that grown up politicians cannot sit down and talk civilly to each other. I think that’s really sad. Not everybody’s getting stoked up by all this.”

Polls show that the Malvinas claim draws Argentines together only when a military solution is off the table.

“The soveriegnty campaign seems correct to me. I don’t think there’s any other road but the diplomatic one, although I don’t have confidence in anything this government does,” said Martin Dhers, who joined a veteran’s day crowd inBuenos Aires.

Yearning for common ground, several veterans were holding a quiet ceremony at the Argentine war cemetery in the islands, on a lonely bluff near the scene of one of the most intense battles.

“To return to this little piece of land, which for me is a little bit of my country and apart from that, being here is so pleasing, to be among the people that were once our enemies, that which we can now live together with – it’s just really proof that we human beings are not like animals,” said Juan Carlos Lujan.
