ROME — A long-delayed restoration of the Colosseum’s only intact internal passageway has yielded ancient traces of red, black, green and blue frescoes — as well as graffiti and drawings of phallic symbols — indicating that the arena where gladiators fought was far more colorful than previously thought.

Officials unveiled the discoveries Friday and said the passageway — between the second and third levels of the 1st Century Colosseum — would open to the public starting this summer, after the €80,000 ($100,000) restoration is completed.

The frescoes were hidden under decades of calcified rock and grime, and were revealed during a cleaning and restoration project over the last two months. The traces confirmed that while the Colosseum today is a fairly monochrome gray travertine rock, red brick and moss-covered marble, in its day its interior halls were a rich and expensive Technicolor.

Fethullah Gülen Hocaefendi, haftalık sohbetlerinin yayınlandığı internet sitesi ‘herkul.org’da yer alan son videosunda ‘barış’ konusu üzerinde durdu.

Ayetin sosyal hayata yaptığı atıfı şu örnekle dile getirdi: “Milli onur ayaklar altına alınmamak kaydıyla Alevî-Sünnî, Kürt-Türk, Laz-Çerkez şeklinde bölünüp parçalanmak istenen insanlar arasında barışı sağlamak için elden gelen her şeyin yapılması gerekir.” Konuşmasında Hudeybiye Anlaşması’na da değinen Hocaefendi, meseleden günümüz için de…

New York lawmakers are branding the decision by House GOP leaders not to hold a vote on Hurricane Sandy aid in the current Congress a “betrayal.”

Rep. Peter King, a Republican from Long Island, was particularly furious and unleashed a fiery attack on his own party on U.S. cable news channels.

“Absolutely inexcusable,” he told CNBC. “Absolutely indefensible. We cannot just walk away from our responsibilities.”

He also went on CNN and said New York and New Jersey Republicans shouldn’t contribute to the party anymore.

“They’re in New York all the time filling their pockets with money from New Yorkers. I’m saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds,” he said. “Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans.
