“A feast in place of war” by Nadezhda Kolyshkina
A Feast in Place of War, a play, based on the book of the same name published in Moscow in 2013.
The play is set 12,000 years BCE on the sacred Mount Meru, where the classical Greco-Roman gods have gathered to end their protracted feud with the Titans once and for all.
However, not even the gods can make everything go as they want, and Zeus is forced to replace the Council of Gods with a feast, as the Titans haven’t shown up for the talks.
The supreme deity has announced a ball, but the gods aren’t exactly falling over themselves to attend this, either. His beloved children Athena, Aphrodite and Apollo don’t come, and there is no sign of Mother Gaia, who is trying to prepare an elixir of immortality for her earthly progeny while the others feast.
As the action unfolds, we see the gods for who they really are, with all their squabbles, scheming and psychological games. Zeus likes to think that he’s in charge, but how much does the Thunderer really know about what’s going on behind his back? He’s declared the Earth’s ancient inhabitants “withered branches of the tree of life”, but Mother Gaia is determined to save them from destruction—and Hera, the goddess of women and marriage, is equally determined to stop her. But how will Zeus react when he finds out that his own wife hasn’t informed him of her cunning plan?

“Любовь ко всем, ненависть — ни к кому! — Смысл жизни мусульман-ахмади”, Нурым Тайбек (Russian Edition)
The Ahmadian movement is the only one in Islam to declare, in accordance with the order of Muhammad, military jihad cancelled (since 1891) in connection with the advent of the Mahdi messiah (and the beginning of the human rights era). Ahmad fought against the politicization of Islam and restored the original – peaceful, safe and spiritual – interpretation of the concepts of “jihad” and “caliphate”, showing the obsolescence and failure of their military-political interpretation. All non-Ahmadic Muslim movements oppose the rationalist Ahmadic understanding of the literalistic worldview, the main element of which is a bloody “messiah”, with a sword “converting to Islam” the whole world, killing dissenters and breaking all crosses in the world, like ISIS. Their followers carry out attacks everywhere. In Kashkar-Kyshtak (Kyrgyzstan), they killed an Ahmadian for obstructing their plans for recruiting “jihadists” and planned to rob rich people to finance “jihad”. “Islamic terrorism” is skillfully used as an image of the enemy, without which the war machine of the superpowers cannot grow and implement their expansionist policies. Thanks to the community’s commitment to peace, human rights and freedoms, non-violence, humanitarian ideals, renunciation of revenge, the worldwide recognition of the Ahmadi community is only growing.
