See the often neglected observation at http://www.freeeurope.info/
http://www.freeeurope.info/ is a private, positive initiative. It is a contribution to a widening public agenda in Europe. It is independent from parties and organizations. It is the first possibility for all Europeans and their friends worldwide to have a common say about the future path of European affairs. Astonishing, fascinating, and promising.

مسرحية مؤذن الراديو, تلعب في دبلن باللغة العربية, مع ترجمة كتابية. وكل الحاضرون كانوا من الايرلنديين ماعدا انا. وقد حرصت على التحدث للممثليين الذين يصرون على ان المسرحية انما هي مسرحية وثائقية وليست مسرحية عادية. وقد ابدع المخرج والذين قاموا على هذه المسرحية بطريقة ممتازة ومستساغة لغير الناطقين باللغة العربية. وقد اعجبت بهذا الاخراج الجميل الذي لم يخرم من العادات الاسلامية والقرآنية وطريقة اداء الاذان اي شئ . انه شئ جميل يؤدى باللغة العربية على شعب لا يسمع كلمة الله اكبر الا عندما يراها في التلفزيون لقتل الاعداء او قتل اسير اوووووووووووو.. واني اذ اشكر الذين قاموا على هذه التمثيلية اقول باننا في حاجة الى اعطاء نموذجا مثل هذا في الغرب كي نطفي نار الحقد الدفين .
A freed slave became the first muezzin because he had a honey-sweet voice. Later muezzins used to climb the minaret to make the call to prayer, the Adhan. Now their voices resonate via loudspeakers - while they stand in the mosque with a microphone in their hand.In Cairo most muezzins are government employees who often sleep in the mosques and rarely visit their families living in remote villages. Besides being responsible for the call to prayer, they are also often caretakers of the place of worship, they clean the mosque and close the doors in the evening. Their calls mingle above Cairo, the city of a thousand mosques (there are actually about 30,000), forming a multifaceted soundscape. This is however about to change: The Minister of Religious Foundations wants to introduce a centralized muezzin next year. The government will broadcast a single muezzins voice live on a radio channel simultaneously to all government mosques. This will abolish the cacophony, but also the diversity of prayer cultures. Will thousands of Egyptian muezzins fall silent?“Radio Muezzin” focuses on four muezzins: a blind Qu'ran teacher who travels to the mosque in a minibus for two hours every day; a farmers' son and former tank driver from Upper Egypt, who vacuums the carpet in his mosque; an electrician, who began to learn the Qu'ran by heart after a serious accident, and a bodybuilder and runner-up world champion in Qu'ran recitation.“Radio Muezzin” has them meet an engineer who learned to encode radio signals at the Aswan dam. In a mosque made of carpets and fans, they become the protagonists reconstructing their own lives. Between their words and the video images of their daily lives emerge new voices that describe the transformation of the call to prayer in the age of its technical reproduction. After a preview in Cairo last december, "Radio Muezzin" premieres in Berlin.

What will happen next?
First: The German Constitutional Court added a few weeks ago some remarkable limits to how much the Lisbon Treaty should be allowed to infringe on the Constitution of the German Federal Republic.
If the Constitutional Guardians in this central land in Europe made these exceptional reservations - why should not the different national parliaments ask for the same constitutional rights in their respective states? Or is it only Germany who has the privilege to interpret the Lisbon Treaty as a Lessbind Treaty?
Second: The Czech Republic is undertaking a new reading of the potential constitutional conflicts between its own national constitution and the Lisbon Treaty. This will take some time.
Third: Seldom in history has a new constitution, who has been presented as a gift to its people, had so many democratic proponents eager not to let the people vote directly welcoming the gift.
We Europeans deserve something better.
This referendline, www.Freeurope.info will continue for some time, still. Any idea of its future long time activity will be appreciated.

في يوم التصويت لا زال بعض الناس يحاولون ان يحثوا الناس بان يصوتوا ب لآ في حين ان مايكل مارتن يبعث الايميلات يحث الناس بان يصوتوا ب نعم
I just placed my "Yes" vote in favour of the Lisbon Treaty at St Anthony's School in Ballinlough, Co. Cork - my local polling station.
Every vote is important today. Yours alone could be the difference between "Yes" for Ireland and a disastrous "No" that will set us back.
Polls close at 10:00pm tonight, so there is still time to vote - and please make sure you do. Voting is quick and easy, and nothing is more important. Let's all work together so there's a strong endorsement of the Treaty.
After you've voted, send a note to your friends and neighbours reminding them to cast their "Yes" vote today:
Thanks for all you've done so far. This is our last day to make a difference, so please make sure to vote.
Micheál Martin, TD
