Seeking a job in Christ’s land
No matter how hard the local authorities try to present the advantages of Georgia, or to bring the emigrants back to the country by promising to provide them with dwellings and employment; the people still refuse to listen and keep treacherously running from the country. One of these days, the Georgian pilgrims in Israel went to the immigration service to get a status of refugee instead of taking a sight-seeking tour. The reasons produced by some of the Georgian politicians about Georgia being the true motherland of Jesus were still not enough to convince them.
Georgians were asked to decide upon the genocide
Once again, the Armenians have asked the Georgian parliament to recognize the genocide of their nation in the Turkish Empire in 1915. The issue became relevant in connection with the 95th anniversary of the tragedy that happened on April 24. However, there is not a single chance that the Georgians will provide a fair assessment of those events, for Georgia is too much dependent on its strong neighbors in the person of the Turkic Turkey and Azerbaijan. They are more likely to recognize the genocide over the Azerbaijani in Khodzhaly, just as they have recognized the Muslim holiday of Navruz Bajram as a nationwide holiday.

White House drifting apart from official Tbilisi
At the invitation of his American colleague, President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili is going to take part in the nuclear safety summit that is going to be held in Washington on April 12-13. The official Tbilisi rejoiced some time ago, asserting that the White House was consistently implementing the line of the former President Georgia Bush who called Georgia “the lighthouse of democracy” and was lavish at supporting the young revolutionists. However, it became known today that the long-awaited meeting of Barack Obama and Mikhail Saakashvili in Washington is never going to take place. Does it mean that the forecasts of some of the Georgian experts talking about the White House’s growing indifference to the unpredictable Georgian leader start coming true?
