Subject: IMPORTANT:THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF AMERICAN INDIANS OPPOSES THE JESUITS !
A few months ago we said what are the Jesuits realy doing at Mount Graham ???? Well is a sacred site used by the native American indians for thousands of years , doesnt that tell you something? Are we still so stupid in the west to wonder about the hidden magical powers of the Apache indians , I hope not. We said in our previous articles that the Jesuits are doing black magic to evoke entities and they need special power spots for these rituals , so what's better then a Apache holy site as an ideal place to conduct such secret occult operations , away from the eyes of public in a specific holy site known as Dzil Nchaa Sií An were apparentely very powerfull Jinns (entities) reside in parallel dimensions as the indians also confirm.The Apache are not ignorant and know about the power of the dark forces behind the Vatican Observatory of Mount Graham and they definetely know better then the white man about the evil of black magic . So they start questioning the presence of the Jesuits in their holy site. And this is what happens in their own resolution made by the National Congress of American indians , a resolution that opposes the Jesuit Order presence on their Sacred Mountain and their so called Observatory also used to monitor the stars for the complex astronomical calculations used for their rituals. Leo Lyon Zagami THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF AMERICAN INDIANS RESOLUTION #SPO-01-063 Title: Resolution in Support of the Determination of Eligibility of Dzil Nchaa Sií An (Mount Graham, AZ) for Listing in the National Register of Historic Places in the United States as a Western Apache Traditional Cultural Property and Sacred Site, and Request That No University or Other Entity, Foreign or Domestic, Join the Mt.

Joseph Coyne denouncing the Apaches' spiritual relationship with dzil nchaa si'an !!! This is something we cant tollerate coming from the Church of Satanism in Rome...the Jesuits are evil black magician and dangerous sorcerers send them away from the apache Holy mountain now, support the American indians in their struggle to reclaim their sacred site. I also found a unedited text of an article published as "Native Tribes Struggle to Reclaim Sacred Sites" that describes very well the situation in Pulse of the Twin Cities newspaper, June 1, 2005 Leo Lyon Zagami STAR STRUCK: THE ASTRONOMICAL ABUSE OF INDIGENOUS SACRED SITES BY JOEL HELFRICH, DWIGHT METZGER, & MICHAEL NIXON Dozens of the largest astronomical research institutions gather this week in Minneapolis to laud and promote their endeavors at the meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). Representing major universities, scientific foundations, and U.S. military-industrial interests, the astronomers will present to each other grand plans for future discoveries, conquests, and dreams for designs of ever-larger telescopes and telescope complexes. What may sadly be lost to the AAS is the true impact of its privilege: the failure to recognize Indigenous knowledge, the desecration of sacred sites, and the inability to self-reflect on a profound disrespect that perpetuates harm to an imperiled earth and its peoples. At odds are divergent cosmologies and the power of uncompromising researchers' knowledge versus the strength of indigenous ways of knowing. A key component in these clashes is the willful disregard of Native sovereignty and ever-mutating forms of colonialism. Minnesota is no stranger to these issues. When the University of Minnesota (UM) Board of Regents pledged $10 million to support UM's astronomers buying into the controversial Mount Graham telescope project in 2002, Minnesota was dragged into an international conflict. Identified by the United Nations High Commission on Human Rights as one of the most egregious examples of religious intolerance by government in the United States, the telescope complex on the Western Apache sacred mountain is the source of a profound disturbance. Aligned with traditional Apaches in their on-going struggle for religious freedom and sacred site protection are two other Indigenous peoples fighting the astro-colonization in the form of expanding telescope complexes in their homelands. Mauna Kea, on the Big Island of Hawai'i, and Kitt Peak, in Arizona, are coveted by astronomical scientists for their excellent atmospheric conditions. Along with Mount Graham, whose humidity and atmospheric turbulence ranks it lower in astro-quality, those high mountains are also revered by their Native inhabitants as essential to their traditional ways of life. The astronomers' unilateral desecrations of sacred summits such as Mount Graham, Mauna Kea, and Kitt Peak for expanding telescope complexes exemplify the dark side of mission creep and the pandemic expansion of the astronomy industry. The conflicts that arise between scientists and Native peoples regarding such desecrations are caused by the fundamental lack of respect by astronomers, their university administrations, and associated governing bodies, as well as their sidestepping of established laws and policies that were enacted to defend Indigenous peoples' human rights and protect their sacred lands. Today, continued and growing opposition, constant litigation, and persistent protests cloud the future for all three observatory projects and bring focus to the fundamental moral and ethical issues facing the astronomers and the funders involved. SACRED SITES, SCIENTIFIC RITES: THE STRUGGLE FOR MOUNT GRAHAM IN MINNESOTA According to its literature, "The American Astronomical Society…is the major organization of professional astronomers in North America." That the AAS would select Minnesota as its host site is clearly an indication, in part, of the spoils of UM astronomers' hard-fought efforts to buy into the telescope project on Mount Graham. The UM astronomers who lured billionaire Stanley Hubbard of Hubbard Broadcasting in 2001 to make his $5 million matching gift for the University's investment in the Mount Graham telescope project have again teamed up with Hubbard to sponsor this year's conference. Joining Hubbard to pay for the four-day gala at the Minneapolis Convention Center is the University of Minnesota, UM Institute of Technology, the University of Minnesota Foundation, UM Graduate School, and the UM Office of the Vice-President and Provost, as well as Denver-based Ball Aerospace, a corporation that designs surveillance and laser and other military systems. The interdependence of military money and university science is becoming rampant in the field of astronomy. The lure of the lucrative contracts that led UM to opt into Mount Graham despite great opposition is the same attraction that drives the controversial "strategic positioning plan" by which UM proposes to eliminate its General College. It may be that UM is counting on their sponsorship of the AAS conference as a good investment. It may be a necessary one, as the astronomy department is still far short of coming up with the millions of dollars more needed to match Hubbard's $5 million gift. Maybe UM should take the opportunity to shop for a more suitable telescope project, as Hubbard said that they could do in 2002, when Hubbard was confronted with the implications of his donation in its harm to the Apache people. Hubbard revealed that he was deceived by UM astronomers who had stated to him that the Apache tribes approved of the observatory. Mount Graham (known to the Apaches as dzil nchaa si'an) was originally within the boundary of the Fort Apache Reservation, but it was taken away from the Apaches by executive order in 1873. Its relative isolation and national forest and wilderness protection left much of Mount Graham's old-growth summit undeveloped until the University of Arizona (UA) invaded the pristine mountaintop to construct telescopes. Today, a towering 14-story metal box built to house the large binocular telescope (LBT) looms high above the forest on Emerald Peak, visible from both the San Carlos and White Mountain Apache reservations. Originally named the "Columbus Project"-a name that was changed after an international protest against the observatory was held in the U.S. and European cities on Columbus Day 1992-the LBT was to be completed in October of 1992. The LBT is already thirteen years late and is plagued by international scandal, major technological failures, and modifications to compensate for atmospheric turbulence. Chronically cash-strapped, the UA's big telescope endeavor is not complete. UA may be far from the number one astronomical research institution, but it has a notorious history for its extreme efforts in appropriating dzi? nchaa si'an for telescope development. By the mid 1990s, UA became the first university to lobby against the listing of an endangered species. It became the first university to fight in court against the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, to arrest an American Indian for praying, and to demand permits be obtained by Apaches to pray on their sacred mountain. UA is also the first university to seek exemption from all U.S. environmental laws, which it chose to do twice to circumvent regulatory processes and court orders that blocked the construction of telescopes on Mount Graham. Most bizarre of all, perhaps, is the combative stance The Vatican has taken as one of UA's partners in the Mount Graham project. The Vatican Observatory-through its Director, Jesuit priest Fr. Joseph Coyne-has gone even beyond UA's assertions, denouncing the Apaches' spiritual relationship with dzil nchaa si'an. Coyne stated in the first edition of his manifesto, Personal Reflections on the Nature of Sacred, published from the Pope's medieval Italian fortress retreat, Castel Gandolfo, that the perspective of the Apaches in defending Mount Graham "is a kind of religiosity that must be suppressed with all the force we can muster." Even more outrageous is that another Jesuit, former Arizona State Museum Curator, Charles Polzer, charged that the opposition to the LBT project "came out of the Jewish lawyers of the ACLU" as "an attempt to undermine and destroy the Catholic Church." By forcing itself onto the mountain, UA lost many allies. In the 1990s, numerous major astronomical institutions abandoned consideration of the Mount Graham site, including UA's original partners Harvard and the Smithsonian Institution. Many of the institutions that spurned UA cited environmental and cultural considerations. More recently, Germany's Max Planck Institute decided to look for a better site for participation in a radiotelescope after years on the mountain, opting out of its contract with UA because of Mount Graham's poor atmospheric conditions for astronomy. The loss of UA's would-be telescope subscribers could explain the desperate efforts used to secure new investment from the University of Minnesota. When UM was confronted by internal opposition to its plan to buy into the observatory, it followed the leadership of UA's well-developed public information team to fight it. All the way to the contentious 3-2 Board of Regents Finance Committee vote and the Regents' subsequent conditional approval, initiated and led by Regent Frank Berman, for joining the project in late 2002, UM chose a moral low road and decided to not value the needs of the Apache people to have their mountain respected. Indeed, the actions taken by UM astronomers mimicked the UA's own historical tactics against the Apaches' defense of Mount Graham: deny, suppress, attack, and then circumvent. UM Department of Astronomy Chair Len Kuhi first claimed he was never told about the cultural controversy surrounding Mount Graham. Stanley Hubbard claimed that he was told that the San Carlos Apache Tribe supported the project. When the facts clearly contradicted assertions and grew to include resolutions from the UM Faculty Senate Social Concerns Committee and UM President's American Indian Advisory Board, the American Indian Studies Department, the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, and others, UM's investment began to look shaky. At that point, UA and UM lawyers got together to move the collaboration forward at any cost. Ultimately, UM's Board of Regents voted to join the project, conditional on offering the Apaches money and subscribing to UA's proposal to convene an "Apache grievance committee." To date, none of the UM Regents' conditions have been met. Working with the universities, UA Indian Law Professor Robert Williams created the "Northern Tribes Initiative," which was flatly rejected by the San Carlos Apache Tribe in April of 2004. Ola Cassadore Davis, daughter of the last traditional Apache Chief and founder of the Apache Survival Coalition, referred to the initiative as "offering cash in exchange for our Apache religion and culture." Another attempt by the universities in April of this year was also rejected. It would have paid lip service to UM Regents' intentions while trying to gain tacit support for at least four additional telescopes on Mount Graham. Fortunately for UM, their contract allows them to withdraw and recover their entire capital investment as early as June 30 of this year, as the UA's telescope remains incomplete, behind schedule, and unusable, despite UA's showman's hawkings. Respected National Optical Astronomy Observatory scientist, Dr. Roger Lynds, obviously had it right years ago when he said UA's LBT project on Mount Graham "is all about 'self-aggrandizement…. It's got nothing to do with science, technology, and truth or the best use of taxpayers' money.'" There are many people who say that UA should heed the warning signs it has ignored so far. As former San Carlos Apache Tribe Chairman and Apache Survival Coalition board member, Raleigh Thompson, explained in the aftermath of the gigantic forest fire that was started by lightning last summer on Mount Graham and threatened the observatory complex: "Lightning is the very power of God in Apache belief. This fire was not accidental, but a warning that the mountain can defend itself. We have warned the Forest Service and the University of Arizona time and time again that what they are doing up there is desecration, but they don't listen to us." Another fire, this time within the coalition of Native peoples who are fighting for their way of life, is gathering fuel and threatens to end the desecration of these sacred places. Wendsler Nosie, a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribal Council and organizer of the annual Mount Graham Sacred Run, feels that Apaches and other Indigenous peoples have been tolerant for too long. "It once was necessary for survival," explains Nosie. However, Nosie feels that his people "need to start addressing the abuse that is happening to them. That abuse must stop, or we are not going to have anything for our children." Unfortunately, the abuse of Mount Graham is mirrored in struggles over sacred summits elsewhere. related articles: http://www.illuminati-news.com/111906a.htm http://www.arcticbeacon.com/articles/15-Jan-2007.html
