The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: The Catholic Creed: The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.


For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

James Bond or Israeli Thug?

James Bond or Israeli Thug?

Friday – July – 30 2010 – Vienna – Today, at 12:30 noon, a tall man knocked violently on my door. He did not knock at any other doors in the same floor. He continued knocking on my door in a very provocative way. The man had his his face turned away from the magic eye, so I could not see him. He was wearing a black suit, he had blond hair and a tall very muscular body. In a way he looked like the security man, one of those special forces who accompany politicians and VIPs.

After knocking several times, the man used a key to open my door, what worked without problems. It looks like he was a special guest who had a copy of my house key, but not from me. I asked him what he wanted before he finished opening my door, which was blocked from the inside to make entering more difficult for thieves and Israeli thugs.

“James Bond” replied in a silly way: “I want to enter you apartment to see your windows from the inside”. My cell phone rang during this silly conversation with “James Bond”. I let Mr. Bond talk with the person who called, what confused him even more. We called the police immediately. The Austrian police, two men and a woman, arrived about two minutes after the call, but Mr. “James Bond” had already disappeared from the scene. The owner of the building was outside, in the garden during the visit of Mr. “James Bond”. I asked him if he had sent somebody to check my apartment. He said no.

The questions which arise:

  • Who was this unwelcome guest who knocked on my door and who had exactly the key of my apartment?
  • Is he the real “James Bond” or the envoy of the Israeli special forces? I doubt that this was just a casual break-in attempt by a “special” thief because he had a fitting key to my apartment, and there are many other apartments which can be reached more easily in the facility.
  • What bothers Israel so much about me and what do they want from me?
  • Is their bad conscience so bad that after having taken everything from me they now have to send somebody to kill me?

This is not the first negative incident which happened to me in Austria, but it is the first time that “James Bond” stood at the entrance of my apartment with a special key in his filthy hands.

I had several troubling incidents in the past, I have received several death threats by the cowardly Israelis, but I am not scared. I will go ahead stronger and powerful. The voice of truth should never scare. The sun can never be covered with a blanket. But will my words and my journalistic work put an end to my life, or will my words win and the truth remain a poisoning dagger in the heart of Israel and all its thugs?

I doubt that these people will achieve anything by killing me, because there are many, many more people writing against them, people who in the meantime write much stronger articles and post videos and pictures about the crimes of Israel which are often stronger than what I have posted. The Israelis have now entered a logic in which everything they do has negative consequences for them. These consequences have until now been symbolic, but soon the negative repercussions of their crimes will become material, and there is nothing they can do about that. Their fall is not my work, but it is theirs alone. It is they who are scared like corralled rats, not me.

American and Israeli Officers Killed in Crash in Romania

American and Israeli Officers Killed in Crash in Romania

[use Open Image in New Window to see pictures in full enlarged]

CH-53 helicopter

Americans were among the six Israeli officers who were killed in a helicopter crash in Romania. The Romanian authorities are continuing to hide the presence of the dead Americans on board a military helicopter which crashed over its territory near Brasov in central Romania.

The helicopter was carrying a number of Israeli military officers, US officers and Romanians when it crashed over the Carpathian Mountains during a training flight for the Israeli officers. According the Israeli daily news, the Israeli military training in the EU is part of their preparations for a war against Iran. The Israeli dead officers Staff Sergeant Oren Cohen and Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Shipenbauer were involved in the Gaza massacre during the so called “Operation Cast Lead”.

The Ministry of Defense of Romania stated that the Romanian military helicopter which crushed was carrying Israeli soldiers and a Romanian, but the ministry imposed a news blackout on the real number of dead people and their nationalities. They did not mention the presence of US soldiers among the dead.

Romanian press reports indicated that US military personnel were present on board of the helicopter, but the Romanian authorities did not confirm this.

It is worth mentioning that previously, on July 18 2010, the Romanian Department of Defense reported that an Israeli helicopter had been involved in military training and had an emergency landing after the discovery of a defect in the helicopter. The statement added that the problem had been fixed and helicopter returned to base Bopok (sp ?).

According to Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, the Israeli army sent on last June 26 more than hundred officers on board of a Boeing 707 aircraft to Romania, Germany and Poland. The Hebrew newspaper claimed that the soldiers were sent to visit the memorial sites and the concentration camps of Jews in Poland, but this makes no sense. Yediot Aharonot contradicts this statement and cites Israeli military sources which say that Turkey prevented a plane carrying a number of Israeli officers from crossing over its territory. The sources added that officers were actually on their way to conduct military exercises abroad and that they had to change their route towards their destination.

After the Israeli helicopter crash, and for “security” reasons, the commander of the Israeli air force war criminals Brigadier-General Nimrod Shefer put on hold a number of IAF helicopters that participated in the military war exercises in Romania

Members of the Israeli military air forces include 30 combatant soldiers and commanders from Rescue Unit 669 arrived at a Romanian Air Force base.

On the other hand it should be noted that Israel continues it’s training and military preparations to strike Iran, and that the Israeli military is training under the observance and help of the US military.

Chinese Foreign Minister Brings Troublemaker to Austria

Chinese Foreign Minister Brings Troublemaker to Austria

[use Open Image in New Window to see pictures enlarged in full]

Angry Chinese lady makes bizarre contortions

Click here to see more photos.

This was the first time that Austrian journalists saw the woman in the Chinese diplomatic delegation, who can be described as a trouble maker. The woman did not only try to confuse the diplomatic staff working with the Austrian Foreign Ministry, but she wanted to change the protocol of the Austrian Foreign Ministry altogether, to change the arrangement of documents, flags and seats in the press conference room. The scene which this provocative Chinese woman played, happened before the reporters from the media who were waiting for the ministers, and it took time to find a solution to the problems which this lady conjured. None of the Austrian media reported about the silly scene.

The media staff of the Austrian foreign Ministry which deals with journalists and diplomatic visitors is an experienced team, they are quite and work professionally, and they respect all guests and journalists alike. This team was confronted with something completely new on the evening of last Sunday July 25 2010, when a woman who can only be described as severely nervous and aggressive who came in the team of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of China, Yang Jiechi, used cruel and impolite gestures and hand movements while directing criticism imparting orders to her counterparts in the diplomatic team of the Austrian Foreign Ministry.

Chinese lady makes bizarre contortions

At the beginning of the shouting party, the Chinese women entered the conference room and started yelling in Chinese at the members of her team. It was clear from her gestures that the woman wanted to change the arrangement of the Chinese, Austrian and European flags. She exited the room angrily, looking for her Austrian counterparts. She returned and proceeded to explain her views to the Austrians.

The Austrian crew remained calm and diplomatic, trying to avert the anger of the Chinese woman. Both sides left the room in order to avoid further scandal in front of the cameras of the journalists, who start photographing the scene.

Minutes later, the parties returned to the hall. It was clear that the Austrian diplomatic crew had persuaded the Chinese team to keep the flags in their place without change. However, the Chinese woman started a new round of shouting orders and instructions at people around her. She had found further issues in the room which were not of her liking, what caused her to dictate new orders to the Austrian team.

Chinese lady makes bizarre contortions

Thus, the Chinese woman went to the platform of conferences where the ministers sit during the press conference. She sat in the place designated for the Chinese Foreign Minister and demanded that the chairs and microphones should be arranged in another way. She forced the removal of items (notice block, pencils, …) placed on the table as courtesy. She pointed around and gesticulated like the actors in Chinese karate movies.

This scene, which can only be described as unusual and unacceptable, happened before the many journalists who were waiting in the press conference room, colleagues who are habitual attendants to the events of the government. The scene offered us by this woman overshadowed the appearance of the ministers. I am sure that this lady will remain in the memories of those present much longer than the statements of the ministers.

Iranian Nuclear Weapons Addressed By Chinese Foreign Minister

The bizarre scene was ended by the entry of the foreign ministers, for Austria, Michael Spindelegger, and his counterpart Yang Jiechi, the Chinese Foreign Minister. Big smiles were displayed on their faces. The press conference began with the speech of the Austrian Minister, in which he welcomed his Chinese counterpart and the attendants. A second round of political talk started.

According to what both ministers stated during a press conference, the ministers addressed the issue of the Iranian nuclear weapons; the recent Korean events and the strengthening and expansion of the development of bilateral relations and cooperation between Austria as a member of the UN Security Council and China, and between China and the EU. The ministers also discussed the official preparations for the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between both states. Click once on the picture to make it bigger.

At the joint press conference held at the Austrian Foreign Ministry, minister Yang Jiechi called on all parties to exercise restraint. He also called with regard to a declaration by the chairman of the UN Security Council, to preserve peace and stability in the region and to return to the six-party talks. Austrian minister Spindelegger said that the North Korean rhetoric causes him great concern, and that the involvement of China is important for the stability in the region.

According to minister Spindelegger, Pyongyang had threatened to use nuclear weapons on the occasion of the ongoing South Korean-American maneuvers.

About the subject of the Iranian nuclear weapon and the Security Council resolution which was adopted earlier in June 2010 about new and stricter sanctions against Iran, the Chinese Foreign Minister confirmed the position of his country, which supports diplomatic negotiations to resolve the issue of the nuclear weapon. He said: “China firmly believes that it is necessary to prevent that more countries came into the possession of nuclear weapons”.

The Chinese foreign minister also stated that he had been invited by President Fischer to Salzburg to the opening ceremony of the festival (“Salzburger Festspiele”) at the Hotel “Goldener Hirsch”, on Monday July 26 2010.

Lettuce Lady Arrested in Jordan

Lettuce Lady Arrested in Jordan

July – 25 – 2010 – the Jordanian woman Amina Tariq, member of an animal protection association, was arrested yesterday noon by the police and transferred to the Zahran Security Center in Amman during a peace event in the First Circle Street of Jabal Amman. She was wearing Hijab and a long dress made of lettuce leaves, and raising a sign with slogans like “Let vegetables grow on you” and “Let the love for vegetables grow with your food”.

Amina Tariq, Jordanian Lettuce Lady.

This “Lettuce Lady” who was present on Rainbow Street caused a major traffic jam in the area and escaped from the police after she ran away to a nearby restaurant. The police followed the girl and arrested her on the pretext of failure to obtain prior authorization for the event, of not having a permission to demonstrate in public, and causing a severe traffic jam. Hundreds of people gathered in the area of first circle where the girl was detained.

According to Ammon News, the “Lettuce Lady” appeared on Rainbow Street wearing a full-length dress made of lettuce leaves and carrying a sign reading “Let Vegetarianism Grow on You”. Amina Tariq is a member of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) who appear in Jabal Amman to encourage Jordanians to follow a vegetarian diet.

A statement was issued by PETA Asia Pacific said: “PETA’s Lettuce Ladies appear in various countries with the aim of drawing attention to the suffering of billions of animals which are raised and killed for consumption as food. The consumption of meat, eggs and dairy products is the number one cause of climate change and a major contributor to resource depletion, pollution and even world hunger”.

The Statement added: “Waste, antibiotics and pesticides from factory farms and slaughterhouses contaminate water sources. Farmed animals produce 13 billion metric tons of excrement each year; that is 48 times as much as the excrement output of the world’s human population. Much of the world’s water supply is quietly being diverted to animal agriculture; even desert nations in Africa and the Middle East are pouring what little water they have into meat production. Each day, animal growth consumes a shocking 2.5 trillion liters of water, enough for everyone in the world to take eight showers”. “We are asking people to turn over a new leaf and go vegetarian” says Jordan’s Lettuce Lady Amina Tareq. “With so many delicious alternatives to meat available, it is easier than ever to enjoy great food without killing animals and causing them any kind of suffering”.

Condom Revolution Called Out by the UN: Videos

Condom Revolution Called Out by the UN

Click here to see more photos of Luxury condoms.

July 23 2010 – Vienna – Austria – “Condom Campaign, condom advertisement, condom shops, condom workshops, condom exhibitions, condom signs, condom demos, condoms fixed on the walls at the Wiener Messe Conference Center, condom posters hanging everywhere, condoms in the toilets, condom on the T-Shirts, condom party, and condoms and more condoms. “Condomize your Future”, “Condomize your Life”, Condomize your Love and Condomize your days and nights. I became deaf of hearing the advertisements for condoms. Seven days of hearing about condoms. Seven days during which my eyes became tired of seeing condoms. Seven days went into advertising for big companies which produce condoms.

These African Women are the envisioned future clients for luxury condoms.

The condom campaign, advertisement, workshops, exhibitions, and meeting which started last Saturday July 17 2010 as part of the XVIII International AIDS Conference 2010 adopted by the United Nations, the City of Vienna, the European AIDS Clinical Society, the European Commission, the Austrian AIDS Society and other organizations had been ended. The conference was held under the slogan of “Rights Here, Right Now – with a renewed commitment to push for securing universal access to HIV prevention, care, treatment and support”.

Over 19,000 participants from 193 countries ended the conference with a clear demand: “CONDOMIZE THE FUTURE”. The participants also concluded the conference with clear evidence of tangible progress in HIV research and program scale up, yet facing an urgent need for increased resources, the protection of human rights, and broader use of scientifically sound prevention strategies.

Delegates and organizers departed Vienna with bags full of condoms, pins, signs and T-shirts which could altogether be described as a revolution of condoms.

As a journalist, I would like to ask the UN, the European Commission and the other organizers of the XVIII International AIDS Conference 2010 the following questions:

  • Which is the connection between fighting against AIDS and leading a campaign from 6:30am – 18:30pm for expensive condom costing 25, 30 and 100 dollars?
  • What is the connection between fighting against AIDS and advertising for the natural condoms, condoms with different flavors, colors and textures?
  • Would the UN clarify for us how we can test the different flavors of condom?
  • Are the victims of AIDS from the South Africa, where people are oppressed by poverty, ignorance and many other malaises able to buy natural condoms and the condoms with different flavors?
  • Did ex-President Bill Clinton, the former lover of Monica Lewinsky and husband of current US foreign minister Hillary Clinton, use condoms with flavor or natural ones during his immoral tryst with Lewinsky?

See the condom campaign promoted by the UN in the video below

Condomize Campaign at AIDS Conference 2010 from Kawther Salam on Vimeo.

I would like to conclude my report saying that I found it disgusting that politicians and many companies and private foundations would use the AIDS victims and the poor, oppressed peoples whom they invited from Africa, to help promote their products and their ambitions at the expense of and to suck the last drop of blood of these poorest and most vulnerable of victims, to climb on their shoulders in order to feed their private companies with millions of dollars. The 2010 AIDS Conference would have been in the right place, an efficient and objective place to look at the problems of the victims of AIDS if the organizers had not been the many bloodsucking big Pharma companies and the missionaries from extremist cults who exploited the conference and paid millions of dollars to promote companies and oppressive ideologies under the banner of fighting against AIDS.

Woman from Peru shows condom use in a socially acceptable way

I wonder which was the costs of bringing Bill Clinton and his security goons to attend the 2010 AIDS Conference so that he could make advertisement for his projects. How much were the costs of the presence of the 19,000 attendants of the conference, among them thousands of poor Africans, among them many thieves apparently came to practice their profession and looted the private property of other guests, as I was told by security guards present at the conference?

Yes, there was an urgent need to convene a conference about AIDS in a quiet and safe place like the state of Austria, and there was an urgent need to invite a number of government representatives interested in the human issues and to finance AIDS research. But there was no necessity to invite 19,000 people for publicity and promotion of the expensive products of companies, like luxury condoms overpriced drugs, dildoes and other useless things which even rich people would abstain from buying.

There was no need to mix the beneficiaries of a giant merchandising program and academics, researchers, and real activists in the field of AIDS and human rights, like British singer Annie Lennox, the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador who spent each moment to introduce the issue of AIDS and defending it’s victims. Lennox gave wonderful speech at the congress, and also gave summary and revolutionary speeches in different places in Vienna. She led a demo against AIDS in different places, at the Parliament, the Messe and in the Ring Street, without the need for personal security like other self-important people in attendance to the event.

Wiener Messe Conference Center.

Vienna was chosen as the host city for AIDS 2010 in part due to its proximity to Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), a region with a growing epidemic fueled primarily by injecting drug use. Conference delegates will examine the epidemic in EECA, as well as in all other regions. Home to two thirds of all people living with HIV and AIDS, Southern Africa remains the most heavily affected region globally. Click here to see photos from AIDS 2010 conference.

Austrian President Dr. Heinz Fischer and Minister of Health Alois Stöger welcomed delegates. Other speakers included South African Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, European Union Commissioner of Health and Consumer Policy John Dalli, and community representatives Vladimir Zhovtyak and Alexandra (Sasha) Volgina, from Ukraine and Russia, respectively. Youth activist Rachel Arinii Judhistari from Indonesia, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé and singer, and songwriter, activist and UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador Annie Lennox also addressed delegates.

Today, the biennial meeting of the global AIDS community concluded today with clear evidence of tangible progress in HIV research and program scale up, yet facing an urgent need for increased resources, the protection of human rights, and broader use of scientifically sound prevention strategies.

“International governments say we face a crisis of resources, but that is simply not true: The challenge is not finding money, but changing priorities. When there is a Wall Street emergency or an energy crisis, billions upon billions of dollars are quickly mobilized. People’s health deserves a similar financial response and much higher priority,” said Dr. Julio Montaner, AIDS 2010 Chair, President of the International AIDS Society and Director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS in Vancouver, Canada. “Billions of people stand in solidarity with us in our drive for universal access. We must rally their support behind Michel Sidibé’s Prevention Revolution and Treatment 2.0 initiative and UNAIDS to ensure that world leaders do not turn their backs on their pledge to reach the goal of universal access.”

AIDS 2010 drew 19,300 participants from 193 countries. The week-long program featured 248 sessions covering science, community and leadership. The conference was supported by 770 volunteers from Vienna and elsewhere.

“The legacy of Vienna is the proof that we can scale up treatment and prevention to all those in need,” said Dr. Brigitte Schmied, AIDS 2010 Local Co-Chair and President of the Austrian AIDS Society. “Despite the formidable obstacles in our path, we leave here with renewed energy to maintain momentum.”

Dr. Schmied said before at the opening session of the conference: “In the past five years, the coverage of HIV treatment in low- and middle-income countries has increased tenfold to now reach five million people,” said Dr. Brigitte Schmied, AIDS 2010 Local Chair and President of the Austrian AIDS Society. “Just ten years after AIDS 2000 in Durban, we have shown the sceptics that universal access is achievable; that this is a goal we can and must reach,” she said. “Holding ourselves and our political leaders accountable for this goal, especially as the next Global Fund replenishment approaches, is our continued challenge in the months ahead.”

Vienna Declaration: By the close of the conference, more than 12,725 individuals had signed the Vienna Declaration, the official declaration of the XVIII International AIDS Conference. On Thursday, the First Lady of Georgia, H.E. Sandra Elisabeth Roelofs, signed the declaration, adding her voice to the call for more rational and scientifically sound drug policies to strengthen HIV prevention for people who use drugs.

Closing Features Examination of Conference Issues: Rapporteur reports in each of the scientific tracks and program areas examined the key issues addressed by conference delegates over the past week and will play an important role in evaluating the conference and its impact.

The Closing Session featured a video address by South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, remarks by Rachel Ong, Chair of the Global Network of People Living with HIV, and Patricia Perez, Chair of the International Steering Committee of the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS. Montaner and Incoming IAS President Elly Katabira, Professor of Medicine at Makerere University in Uganda, presented the first IAS Presidential Award to Jack Whitescarver of the U.S. National Institutes of Health and Katabira gave an inaugural address.

At the conclusion of the Closing Session, representatives of the AIDS 2010 local partners officially transferred the International AIDS Conference globe from Vienna to Washington, DC, which will host the XIX International AIDS Conference in July 2012. Accepting the globe for DC were AIDS 2012 Local Co-Chair Dr. Diane Havlir and representatives of the AIDS 2012 local partners.

Earlier today, delegates heard from three plenary speakers.

HIV and Incarceration: Prisons and Detention
The first of today’s plenary presentations featured two speakers. Dmytro Shermebey (Ukraine) of the All-Ukranian Network of PLHA offered a powerful account of his personal fight for survival during a nine-year prison sentence served in a Ukranian jail where he contracted HIV, hepatitis and tuberculosis. He survived because he wanted to prove that prisoners are humans who have a right to life, respect, understanding, help and protection.

UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Manfred Nowak, said there is an urgent need for a comprehensive reform of the criminal justice and prison system to ensure an adequate response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and detainees’ human rights. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS and TB in prisons and the measures authorities take to deal with it, impact – and often violate – detainees’ human rights. It is often forgotten that while prisoners are denied their right to liberty, they have not abrogated their other rights, such as the right to health or the right to freedom from cruel and unusual punishment.

For several reasons, prisons are characterized by particularly high HIV prevalence and are conducive to the spread of the epidemic. The transmission of HIV largely is due to risk behaviour and the failure of states to provide harm reduction measures. Evidence-based interventions, such as voluntary HIV testing and counseling and the provision of condoms, needles, syringes and opioid substitution therapy, would provide effective means to contain the spread of HIV. However, locked up behind prison walls, the fate of detainees is largely forgotten by society. The mere fact that about 30 million detainees enter and leave prisons every year highlights that prisoners’ health is a pressing public health issue.

Care and Support: Integral to Comprehensive Care
Elizabeth Gwyther (South Africa) of the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of South Africa called for the integration of HIV treatment, care and support programmes to ensure comprehensive HIV care to meet the needs of PLHIV. Gwyther described the experience of PLHIV beginning at the time they present to health care providers, often because of an opportunistic infection, highlighting the complex interventions and continuity of care they need to maintain their health and mitigate HIV’s impact on their socio-economic status. She noted that palliative and supportive care should not be reserved for end-of-life care because it plays an important role in promoting health restoration.

Gwyther also spoke about the experiences of community care workers who work on the front-line of the community response to HIV, saying that many are undervalued and do not receive the recognition they deserve. In addition to a policy for integrated HIV care, she called for governments and donors to provide accessible funding to support the community-led response to HIV/AIDS.

Hepatitis C: Cure and Control, Right Now
Dr. David Thomas (United States) of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine said HIV and HCV confection is a serious and common problem, particularly among people who acquired HIV through drug use, and causes liver disease that is not sufficiently controlled by antiretroviral therapy. HIV/HCV co-infected persons die at a much higher rate than people with only one of the two infections, and liver failure is now the second leading cause of death among PLHIV on antiretroviral therapy.

While there are major challenges in addressing hepatitis C, HCV infection is curable and major improvements in treatment are expected within the year. Thomas called for scale-up of hepatitis C testing, particularly among PLHIV, and new ways to integrate HCV treatment with comprehensive HIV health and wellness services. Major challenges to an effective scale-up exist as HCV screening is uncommon and engaging people who use drugs in traditional medical care can be difficult.
