This is found in the Book of Wei (魏書)
When the Xianbei Tuoba Northern Wei dynasty ruled northern China, it was a custom for the Xianbei to receive southern Han Chinese ex-royal defectors when their dynasties were overthrown in southern China and marry Xianbei princesses off to the Han Chinese exiled royals.
When the Han Chinese Liu Song dynasty (劉宋) in southern China was overthrown by the Han Chinese Southern Qi dynasty, the surviving Han Chinese Liu Song princes fled north to Xianbei ruled Northern Wei (北魏) and were granted asylum and noble titles by the Xianbei Tuoba royals. The Xianbei Tuoba Princess Lanling (蘭陵公主) was married to Han Chinese Liu Song prince Liu Hui (刘辉)
Liu Hui discovered his Xianbei wife was an extremely jealous and psychotic woman who demanded strict monogamy from him. As an ex royal, Liu Hui was accustomed to having his way so he had affairs with numerous Han Chinese women including one of his maids and impregnated her.
Xianbei Princess Lanling went berserk, murdered the maid, ripping the fetus out of her belly and stuffing the naked corpse of the Han Chinese maid with straw to show to her Han Chinese husband Liu Hui to frighten him into becoming faithful. Instead of becoming faithful Liu Hui was horrified and shunned the company of Princess Lanling.Who was the greatest evil during WWII? Britain, America, or the USSR?Which nation was the perpetrator of the most heinous acts again peace and humanity during the Second World War?
For me it’s Britain. In 1939 the UK declared war on Germany completely unprovoked (citing a duty to “protect” a manufactured Polish state created after WWI, a state which no longer existed). After being soundly defeated and driven into the Atlantic Ocean, Britain AGAIN refused to entire negotiations for peace in the war they themselves started, even going as far as to imprison Rudolf Hess, a civilian government peace emissary who traveled in good faith to try and end the war.
Britain proceeded to fund all manner of terrorists, partisans, cutthroats, and mass murderers all over Europe (in violation of the Geneva Convention), to wreak havoc on the peaceful people of Europe and German peacekeeping forces.
It gets even WORSE.. The RAF, not content to simply terrorize innocent people by proxy, began firebombing cities and towns throughout Germany, even destroying Dresden, the most beautiful city on earth, and murdering uncountable numbers of women and children for seemingly no reason other than to tickle the fancy of their obese dictator Winston Churchill. I know that the USSR is often considered the most evil nation during the second world war, but I believe that England is responsible for the most extreme and senseless acts of barbarity relative to its small size.

The tombs were eventually completely demolished by the Mamluk amir Jaharka al-Khalili to make way for the Khan al-Khalili in the late 14th century, which gave its name to the surrounding souq area still present today. Jaharkas reportedly disposed of the bones of the Fatimid royal family by throwing them into the rubbish hills east of the city.
Before the Mamluks did this, Saladin's Sunni soldiers also trashed and looted the Ismaili Fatimid House of Knowledge and converted Al-Azhar from Ismaili into a Sunni school and mosque destroying countless Ismaili books, scientific instruments and valuables. Saladin's soldiers also tried to rape Coptic Christian nuns who committed suicide when they attacked.Good books about the crusadesNeed something to request for ChristmasNo titleWhy are we still here?

We're gonna make the Bosnians pay for what they've doneThe true Middle WayA warning to the Buddhists on this board. Don't fall for the perennialist trap. It is likely that the Absolutist religions are indeed coming to the same realizations as each other: the 'I AM' realization, a non-conceptual mental transformation causing the perception of an Absolute, essence of oneness permeating all of reality and rendering multiplicity a falsehood. Such mental transformations do occur, and are the accomplishments of Absolutists.
Buddhism is different than this. The "I AM" realization is the last stand of Samsara. The realization of the Absolutist does not liberate from the rounds of rebirth.
The liberating insight is that of emptiness. Sunyata. Empty of self nature. The single doctrine which distinguishes Buddhism from the other religions of the world, is Paticca Samuppada, Dependent Origination, and by extension, Shunyata. This core of the Buddha's teaching is universal to all sects, from Theravada to Mahayana to Vajrayana to Dzogchen. It is the definitive, quintessential Buddhist teaching. The Four Noble Truths, the three marks of existence, even the Noble Eightfold Path (apart from Right View) can be claimed by the other Indian traditions, but NOT Dependent Origination. Dependent Origination is the single most important Buddhist teaching which sets it apart from all others.
Any Absolutist, Essentialist, Realist or Nihilistic interpretation of Buddhism, renders Dependent Origination meaningless. Do not fall for the trap. It is the nature of Samsara that afflicted minds incline towards Absolutism and Nihilism, towards reification, towards objectification.No titleIs this an accurate representation of the 15th century Wallachian-Ottoman relationship?No titleIs Maus the most honest holocaust literature?

The Mongols brought together a large army from all over Eurasia, the largest army they'd ever fielded. Soldiers were brought in from Georgia, Armenia, Mongolia, China, and even Frankish Crusaders joined in.
The Caliph of Iraq was a dumb mulatto who did not call for help from his Muslim allies. He did not build up his walls. His was given generous terms of surrender but refused them and insulted the Khan. When his armies amassed, he sent 20,000 cavalry right at them, who were quickly destroyed. The Mongols broke into the city in less than two weeks. 3000 nobles attempted to negotiate but were all killed. Then, the mongols killed nearly the entire city, destroying some of the greatest libraries,hospitals and palaces in the world. The water ran black from the ink, and red from blood.
As for the Caliph: Marco Polo says the Khan locked him in a room with treasure with no food or water.

Complete the listDuring the Nuremberg Trials, a writer was sentenced to death>Streicher was not a member of the military and did not take part in planning the Holocaust, or the invasion of other nations. Yet his pivotal role in inciting the extermination of Jews was significant enough, in the prosecutors' judgment, to include him in the indictment of Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal – which sat in Nuremberg, where Streicher had once been an unchallenged authority. He complained throughout the process that all his judges were Jews.
>His publishing firm also released three antisemitic books for children, including the 1938 Der Giftpilz (translated into English as The Toadstool or The Poisonous Mushroom), one of the most widespread pieces of propaganda, which warned about the supposed dangers Jews posed by using the metaphor of an attractive yet deadly mushroom. The publishing firm was financially very successful and made Streicher a multi-millionaire. At the end of the war, Streicher was convicted of crimes against humanity in the Nuremberg trials and was executed.

What are you doing to help and further the cause of public knowledge?Explain Gnosticism (Christian)Basically all that I can gather is these following ideas
1. The God (YHWH) of the OT / Torah and God (The one Jesus talks about in the NT / Bible) are retconned into being two seperate entities with YHWH being retconned into being a flawed or even evil being
2. The true god exists in the form of 30 emanations (think the trilogy) that represent godly and good archetypes concepts and ideas (Idea, Words, Wisdom, Church, Christ, Man etc) with half being male and half female allowing them metaphorically give birth to more emanations
3. OT / Torah god was created due to some mythological or theological event or fuck up that created an imperfect being that couldn’t exist in the whole of the universe (god). So he gets kicked out but if he gets kicked out of god then that must mean somewhere exists for him to be kicked out into thus the universe (our universe at least) exists
4. The OT / Torah god basically gets his memory wiped and believes that if he Dosent remember anything exisiting before him he must be god
5. OT / Torah basically happen the same except the snake is actually one of the emanations of the true god or some shit who convinced humans to eat the from the tree of knowledge to stop them acting like literal animals
6. New Testament is basically the same with Jesus trying to make people woke that his Father (True god) and the Jewish / OT god are two seperate beings
