    • 2009-10: Libyan Business Firm Attitudes towards Islamic Methods in Finance (Working paper)

      Worthington, Andrew C.; Gait, Alsadek H. (Griffith University, 2009)
      This paper investigates the attitudes of Libyan business firms towards Islamic methods of finance. A sample of 296 firms is surveyed using phone interviews during December 2007 and January 2008 to gather information on their awareness and perceptions of Islamic finance. The results indicate that most firms have knowledge about the existence of Islamic banking and finance, while more than two-thirds of respondents know the specific products of Musharakah (full-equity partnerships) and Quard Hassan (interest-free benevolent loans), often through personal informal lending. However, many respondents are uninformed regarding most other Islamic financing methods. Factor analysis is used to reduce the large number of explanatory variables used to determine business firm attitudes to just four determinants: namely, religion, profitability, business support, and unique services. Discriminant analysis shows that religion remains the primary motivation for the potential use of Islamic finance among business firms in Libya.

Anhang: 2 Seiten, 165KB, text, .pdf ' Die meisten Menschen, die es bekommen, werden noch nicht einmal merken, dass sie infiziert sind ' - Professor Dr. Johan Giesecke, Epidemiologe, Schweden. ' Für so drastische Maßnahmen fehlen schlichtweg die Zahlen. Dass man Patienten mit Vorerkrankungen und ältere Menschen in Kranken- und Pflegeeinrichtungen besonders schützt, ist völlig in Ordnung und erforderlich. Grippe und Coronaviren, das ist bekannt, gefährden Ältere besonders. Das Herunterfahren vieler Betriebe, die Schließung von Schulen und Kindergärten und sogar Ausgangsbeschränkungen – für all das gibt es aber aus medizinischer Sicht keinen Grund. (…) Das ist keine Pandemie. Eine Pandemie ist für besonders viele Todesfälle verantwortlich. Die sehe ich nicht. Die Begrifflichkeit ist also nicht angebracht. Dann müssten wir auch bei der Grippe jedes Jahr so drastische Maßnahmen ergreifen ' - Professor Dr. Siegwart Bigl, Mediziner, Mitglied der sächsischen Impfkommission. ' Es war so unerträglich für mich, zu sehen, wie in meiner zweiten Heimat etwas so Unglaubliches passiert, dass die Menschen anders geworden sind. Ich bin hier hingekommen, wissen Sie, als Fremder in ein neues Land. (…) Ich sehe, wie die Menschen hier ihre Freiheit freiwillig abgeben. Das kann nicht sein. Etwas, was wir nie hatten und was Sie die ganze Zeit hatten. Warum tut ihr das? Warum akzeptieren Sie etwas, was die Grundrechte einfach einfriert, wegnimmt (…) Sie haben die Zahlen für Deutschland und es war klar, dass COVID-19 nicht der große Killer ist. (…) In Deutschland ist die Epidemie schon länger am abnehmen. (…) Ich weiß nicht, warum die Maßnahmen weiter verlängert werden ' - Professor Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi ist Facharzt für Mikrobiologie und Infektionsepidemiolgie, ehemaliger Leiter des Instituts für Medizinische Mikrobiologie und Hygiene der Universität Mainz. 'Man sollte sich vielleicht einmal die Vertriebskosten der Pharmaindustrie ansehen. Das möchte Herr Drosten einem Professor für Rechnungswesen und Controlling (und vor der Berufung CFO - Chief Financial Officer) hoffentlich nicht verbieten! (...) Die Frage muss erlaubt sein, wofür genau diese hohen Vertriebskosten (mit Ausnahme von Fresenius) entstanden sind. Sind es Werbegeschenke für die Ärzte, die die eigenen Medikamente verschreiben, oder Lobby-Kosten wie die Honorare für die Firma von Jens Spahn? Die Drittmittel für die Institute der Medizin-Professoren, mit denen geschönte Arzneimittelstudien eingekauft werden, dürften wohl unter 'Forschung und Entwicklung' verbucht worden sein' - Professor Dr. Werner Müller, Betriebswirtschaftslehre, Hochschule Mainz 'Man droht mir mit der Streichung von der Ärzteliste. Das geht direkt vom Ärztekammerpräsident aus, der das Schreiben persönlich unterzeichnet hat. Das bedeutet ein faktisches Berufsverbot, da die Mitgliedschaft bei der Ärztekammer neben Studium und Nachweis der klinischen Ausbildung eine der drei Voraussetzungen für die Ausübung des Berufs ist. (…) Rund 150 Kollegen haben inzwischen zu mir Kontakt aufgenommen und meine Position unterstützt. Mehr als 30 davon sind bereit, in die Öffentlichkeit zu gehen und etwas auf die Füße zu stellen. Auch bekannte Rechtsanwälte haben sich - aus eigener Initiative - bei mir gemeldet und wollen mich unterstützen. Psychologen und Psychotherapeuten sowie Krankenpfleger von Intensivstationen haben mich kontaktiert. Alle sind mir sehr dankbar, dass ich der Kritik an den Maßnahmen eine Stimme gegeben habe - man spürt sehr viel Erleichterung bei den Menschen.' Dr. Peer Eifler, Arzt, Österreich. 'Wenn in diesem Land gerade jemand stirbt, dann geht es nicht um den hohen Blutdruck, die Diabetes, den Schlaganfall. Sie sagen, sie starben an COVID. Wir waren bei Hunderten von Autopsien. Man spricht nicht über eine Sache, sondern über Komorbiditäten. COVID war ein Teil davon, es ist nicht der Grund, warum sie gestorben sind, Leute. Wenn ich meinen Todesbericht schreibe, werde ich unter Druck gesetzt, COVID hinzuzufügen. Warum ist das so? Warum werden wir unter Druck gesetzt, COVID hinzuzufügen? Um vielleicht die Zahlen zu erhöhen und es ein bisschen schlechter aussehen zu lassen, als es ist' - Dr. Dan Erickson und Dr. Artin Massihi, Notfallmediziner in Kern County, Kalifornien, USA. ' Die normalen weltumkreisenden Krankheitsepisoden werden bekanntlich seit der Schweinegrippe 2009 in inflationärer Weise und jeweils auf einzelne Erreger fokussierend mit dem Begriff 'Pandemie' bezeichnet. In diesem Zusammenhang ist schon lange Wachsamkeit und historisch berechtigtes Misstrauen geboten. Denn wenn schon unsere normalen, sich wandelnden und global kreisenden viralen Wintergäste, wie die H1N1-Viren im Jahr 2009, die Kriterien einer Pandemie erfüllen, dann ist der Begriff sinnentleert geworden. (…) Ohne den von deutschen Wissenschaftlern entworfenen PCR-Test auf SARS-CoV-2-Viren hätten wir von einer Corona-‚Epidemie‘ oder gar ‚Pandemie‘ nichts bemerkt. Mit dem Test zog man, nachdem die WHO ihn empfohlen hatte ('nicht für Zwecke der Krankheitserkennung'), durchs Land und versuchte, Bruchstücke von SARS-Viren zu finden. Eine Stelle in China, die einer der Entwickler des PCR-Tests, Prof. Drosten, in einem Interview beim Deutschlandfunk nicht namentlich nennen wollte, bestätigte dem Virologen, dass mit dessen Testansatz das gesuchte SARS-Bruchstück im Wuhan-SARS-Virus gefunden worden sei ' - Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, Internist, Lungenarzt, Facharzt für Hygiene und Umweltmedizin. Mitglied des Deutschen Bundestages von 1994 bis 2009. ' Der vermeintliche Krieg gegen ein Virus - ein unglaublicher Täuschungs- und Propagandaerfolg, um hinter den Kulissen Rechtsstaat, parlamentarische Demokratie und Grundgesetz im Dienste einer transatlantischen Weltregierung endgültig außer Kraft zu setzen. Bei den politischen Putschisten bestand keine 'akute Geistesverwirrung'. Sie wussten, was sie taten. Es waren die halbgebildeten Akademiker, denen mit gefälschten Zahlen und verdrehten Fachbegriffen der Verstand genommen wurde.

    • 28)Modernleşme Sürecinde OSMANLI İmparatorluğu'nun SİYASAL SİSTEMİ ve Gelişen Siyasi Düşünce Akımları

      ŞEYHANLIOĞLU, Hüseyin (Dumlupınar ÜniversitesiDumlupinar University, 2015-06-20)
      Upon the conclusion of the second siege of Vienna in defeat in 1699, the Otoman Empire, which was established as a margrave of the Seljuk Empire, following 400 years of rise, would enter first a period of decline and then in collapse. In this period, as a result of the Europe’s achievement of great power through colonization, emergence of Russia as a power of threat, military defeats, drift of historic trade routes, such as Silk Road, to the Ocean Coasts, and spread of nationalist political thoughts of French Revolution, the Ottoman Empire began to take Europe as a role model. In this perion (1789), which started with Sultan Selim III, the Otoman Empire began to imitate Europe in military, economic, political and social fields . This period, referred to also as Nizam-i Cedit , is regarded as the period of breakout from the Nizam-i Kadim and entry of Western thoughts into the Otoman Empire. Since the Westernism, Ottomanism and Islamism, which developped during the Tanzimat (1839), Reformation (1856) and Constitution (1877), failed to stop the collapse of the Empire, the recovery process of the State would continue as Turkism from 1908 onwards. In this study, we will analyze the modernization efforts of the Ottoman State and political currents of thought
    • "Contextualized Digital Library Evaluation: The Perseus Digital Library within Theological Research"

      Hartog, Paul (Digital Commons @ George Fox University, 2019-12-01)
      As the development of digital libraries increases, the growth has been accompanied by a refinement of evaluation criteria and methods. Evaluators are increasingly aware that the context of digital library usage (the social, cultural, academic, and institutional environments of the users) is an essential consideration of effective assessment. This article evaluates the Perseus Digital Library through the needs and objectives of a specific learning community – those engaged in theological research. After a review of relevant literature, a rationale is given for ranking ten key facets of digital library evaluation by order of importance. These criteria are then applied to the Perseus Digital Library, contextualized through the particular prism of theological research.
    • 500 de ani de la Reforma Protestantă – semnificația pentru societatea și democrația germană

      Sarcinelli, Ulrich (Editura ARC, 2019-06-01)
      Die Reformation vor 500 Jahren gilt als welthistorisches Ereignis. Sie hat die Staatsbildung vor allem in Europa und in der westlichen Welt beeinflusst und durch Bildungsmobilisierung gesellschaftliche Emanzipationsbewegungen sowie Menschenrechtsentwicklung nachhaltig befördert. Dennoch: Die religiösen Freiheitsideen der Reformatoren waren nicht der Vorläufer des modernen demokratischen Verfassungsstaates und der direkte Auftakt zur europäischen Freiheitsgeschichte. Mit Reformation und Gegenreformation wurden nicht nur religiös-weltanschauliche Pluralisierung möglich, sondern
 auch ein langer Prozess der Säkularisierung eingeleitet, zumindest in Westeuropa. Die Reformation war eine Revolution des Geistes. Sie gab Anstöße zur Selbstermächtigung des Menschen (self-empowerment of humans) und beförderte die Entstehung eines selbstbewussten Bürgertums. Dies bleibt als reformatorisches Vermächtnis und Aufgabe in der globalisierten Welt der Gegenwart: Die Auseinandersetzung mit Pluralität und kultureller
 Vielfalt sowie die Erkenntnis, dass der Kampf um die Freiheit nur mit der Übernahme von Verantwortung erfolgreich sein kann.

    • 'A Barricade across the High Road': C.S. Lewis on the theology of his time

      Sarot,Marcel (Reformed Theological College of the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Pretoria and Society for Practical Theology in South Africa, 2019-01-01)
      In this article, I analyse C.S. Lewis's attitude towards the theology and the theologians of his time. Lewis often emphasised that he was not a theologian. Sometimes he does so out of modesty, to excuse minor errors that a specialist in the field would not have made. More often than not, however, something else plays a role: Lewis's dislike of the theology and the theologians of his time. Although he intended not to become a party in theological controversies, Lewis occasionally took sides. He expressed himself in extremely negative terms about the liberal ... movement, which in his experience... dominated the theology of his time. By assuming them to be in error, and showing how they had arrived there, he participates in the practice he elsewhere rejected as 'Bulverism'. Moreover, he employed pejorative, sexually tinged metaphors. Only on one occasion did Lewis provide arguments for his rejection of liberal theology, and on that occasion he limited himself to New Testament exegesis. On another occasion, Lewis states that he allows only marginal, religiously irrelevant revisions of Christian doctrine. Ironically, his own revisions sometimes went beyond this - for example, in the case of the traditional doctrine of hell. In this article I suggested that for Lewis, the practice of faith implicitly is the ultimate criterion.

    • A Bibliographical Essay on the Social Dimensions of Globalization

      ÇAPCIOĞLU, İhsan (Motif YayıncılıkMotif Yayıncılık, 2003-06-01)
      In this paper, it has been presented an analytical framework on globalization phenomenon which consists of multi-dimensional processes. This multiple processes are not uniform, as they take place in a differentiated manner in time and space. They are also of a multifaceted and contradictory nature. The diverse and contradictory nature of globalization processes has given rise to new global forms with different levels of aggregation, such as global identities and has given renewed importance to ethnic and religious forms in the shaping and re-ordering of global, regional, national and local spaces. Paralleling these trends has been a resurgence of theoretical debate: about the challenges posed by globalization. Thus, this research includes some papers and books on the related topics of globalization, such as economics, governance, religion, politics, media, identity, culture, time and space and other resources, especially specific sources on cross bolder campaigns and historical dimensions of global concepts

    • A Critical Evaluation of the Post 9/11 Al-Qaida Literature = 11/9 سے متعلق القاعدہ کے لٹریچر (ادب) کے مندرجات کا جائزہ

      Juma Khan; Dr Qibla Ayaz (Hazara University, 2018-06-01)
      Al-Qaeda is an institutionalized organization which was championed by Osama Bin Ladin and is currently lead by Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri. It has its own guidelines regarding friendship, war, and reconciliation for Ahle-Kitab and non-Muslims. They viewed that the 9/11 attacks it orchestrated, according to the record are deemed legal. They claim that the action has compatibility with Quran, Hadiths, Seerat-e-Nabavi, followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and Imams of the four sects.
 Al-Qaeda regards the attacks as retaliations of US' cruelties on Muslim Ummah around the world. It asserts US and allies have inflicted severe injuries on the Muslims in Sudan, Palestine, Libya, Afghanistan, Sheehan, Kashmir, and Iraq. Muslims are martyred by the US and coalitions through air-strikes, ground action, and naval actions. The children are made orphan and the wives are made widows. It further asserts that Muslims economic development resources are occupied. US targets the innocent Muslims wherever it sees its interests are in danger. Despite truce and reconciliation agreements, US flouts the agreements and waged wars on the Muslims. Having kept in view this abysmal condition of the Muslim, one would resort to what a common course of action in such circumstances.
 Al-Qaeda's literature considers war on US, allies, and non-Muslims as legal in the context of their cruelties. What name may be given to the barbaric action it had taken against Japan in the World War-I by throwing nuclear bombs on Japan? The Al-Qaeda organization regards suicide attacks on non-Muslims, war on US, and Jihad as obligatory. The organization even considers the killing of the civilians and innocent also legitimate if these hit. According to A-lQaeda's conviction if Muslims are employed as shelters by the Non-Muslims in such conditions they are martyred, if they are hit in the suicide attacks

    • A game of hide and seek: Gendered ethnographies of the everyday state after communal violence in Ahmedabad, Western India

      Jasani, Rubina (2011-09)
      This paper analyses the gendered experience of the state for the Muslim survivors of violence in Gujarat in 2002. Most of the scholarship on the working of the state after communal violence in post-independence India concentrates on the anxiety to re-instate the 'myth of the state', through policies that establish its respectability after violence. The emphasis is on understanding the mechanics of the state, its 'order making' function. Very little attention has been paid to understanding the lived experience of the modern state from a gendered perspective. What studies there have been tend to focus on the internal power structures within nationalist discourses, the patriarchal nature of state assertion, and point to forgotten narratives within the meta-narratives of violence and suffering. There is very little evidence examining how men and women experienced the same process differently, or how they make sense of their experiences, in a context where the lines between order and chaos, legitimacy and illegitimacy and trust and betrayal were constantly being redrawn. In examining memories of loss and suffering, this paper shows the contrasting and shifting ways in which the state is experienced, imagined and granted legitimacy by men and women from the margins. © 2011 Taylor
    • A practical theological study of the efficacy of the Roman Catholic Church – Witbank Diocese’s teaching regarding the healing ministry : towards the development of an integrated and intercultural healing ministry

      Buffel, O. A.; Magagula, Vusumuzi Jan (2020-05-11)
      Sickness is a problem that has not escaped any society and thus is on the agenda of every culture. Since time immemorial cultures have searched for answers to the questions raised by the phenomenon of sickness but none have provided solutions, as it has become clear that sickness is part of our human existence. Many people have resorted to religion in search consolation in times of affliction and the Roman Catholic Church is not immune to this expectation, as we see many leaving the church in search of healing in the African Traditional Religions and other Christian churches because they feel that the church is inadequately dealing with the problem. In this study the author undertakes a research journey within the Diocese of Witbank of the RCC to investigate as to why the church’s healing ministry is not effective. Through engagement with participants in the research field and relevant literature the author discovered that the RCC is seen to be suspicious of the African worldview and consequently does not take its members’ fears and frustrations around the phenomenon of sickness serious as it judges them to be superstitious. This suggests that there is nothing that Western Christianity can learn from African cultures maintaining its superior attitude and further alienating indigenous communities. The author suggests that in order for the RCC to responds with relevance to this problem it needs to reconcile the Christian worldview, which is western, with the African worldview. He puts high on the agenda of Christian theology the urgent call to African theologians to develop an African theology that will give birth to a genuine African Christianity. In conclusion as a solution the author proposes an integrated and intercultural healing ministry for the Diocese of Witbank. This model is aimed at appropriating African values, idioms and language in the RCC to create an atmosphere where the church is seen as a welcome guest who comes bearing gifts but at the same time expects to be taken care of by its host.
    • A Taiwan virtual reality memory project: Rituals in the circle

      亞太博; Cornelisse, R.; Blundell, David (2016-10)
      [[abstract]]The aim of the proposed 360-degree virtual reality (VR) documentary explores questions of identity in the multi-ethnic environment of Taiwan, the connection to perception, tradition, and globalization, as well as how these in turn characterize culture in Taiwan as distinct in the region. The VR framework presented here was conceived by Richard Cornelisse for providing an installation of multi-dimensional experiences of a diverse Taiwanese milieu, that captivates and transports the viewer to a subtle, yet heightened, awareness of local nuances between people, location, and religious rituals. These experiences are meant to re-contextualize how one can understand Taiwan in terms of the people, culture, diversity, and landscape of as both viewer and participant. Our interactive platform activates viewer participation and allows them to engage the subject matter in a unique individualized experience of people and place: one that not only questions how one can understand issues of identity and traditions in a rapidly changing globalized cultural landscape, but also how one can experience local culture and geography through a malleable, immersive, non-linear narrative. © 2016 IEEE.
    • A Theological Critique of “Learner Autonomy”

      Hibbs, Pierce T (Digital Commons @ Biola, 2017-06-01)
      Because words reflect the world of a person, Christian teachers of English are called to consider how the linguistic terminology they use intersects with their Christian values. In this article, I present theological issues with the phrase “learner autonomy” (LA). Drawing largely on the work of Kenneth L. Pike, I discuss an alternative to LA that I believe more clearly reflects a Christian teacher’s theological commitments.
