Pomaks in USA
« on: December 10, 2008, 20:32 »
Dear members let's talk about pomaks in Usa and their troubles, life styles and relations with other minorities who live in Usa. For example; Have they got their own associations? or Are they able to describe their ethnic and cultural backgrounds? etc... We wonder their ideas so i guess our web site reached at least 100 members from there.
Regards

Thanks for your comments but as you seen above here is english section and header of this topic's english.  Would u please use english? Because English is far more world wide in its distribution than all other spoken languages.  It is an official language in 52 countries as well as many small colonies and territories.  In addition, 1/4 to 1/3 of the people in the world understand and speak English. We need to be proactive in presenting our culture and our values to the society so that people would learn more about us.

PP: iskeceli: Are you sure? Is it a joke? Do not forget i have got authority to look-up to ips which are belong to our users. For example IP block which you just posted from s mannheim ;)

Hello there,
According to my sources, the first Pomaks left for USA after the 9th of September 1944. After the coup in Bulgaria many people with favorable positions, gained during the previous pro-fascist regime were forced to flee. Many left for Greece and Turkey and later made it to the USA. Probably there was some limited Pomak presence in USA even before that but we don't have any information in support of that claim. During the Communism in Bulgaria even greater number fled - a huge portion escaped through the Mesta River near the village of Slashten. After serving a sentence in Greece for illegal crossing of the border, the immigrants were allowed to the United States. But still the majority of Pomaks, present in USA today, left after 1990 with Green Cards.

You must have a mosque ın USA, I know this.

But we all are muslims. Dr. Zarrikoub in his book ''Histoy of the Islamic civilization" says:

"There is everywhere one beleive and one culture - the Islamic culture, whose language is the Arabic, the thought - Iranian, the wisdom - Indian, the strong - Turkish but the hearth and the soul are Islamic and human."

If these man Turkish and Arabians who invited you in their mosques are from some teroristic groups - this is an other question!

But I think that they want to help you! I hope!

Назми, подкрепям те и те поздравявам за направените предложения от теб да се изгради джамия от помаците и да се ползва от всички мюсюлмани, но да се знае като помашката джамия, както и да се обособи гробище от помаците, но да се ползва и знае като помашкото гробище. Подкрепям и идеята на Сема за направа на културен информационен център и клуб на помаците в Америка, за срещи , запознанства, фолклор и за обмяна на идеи и други подобни хубави инициативи. Това е да се чуе и види че и помаците са хора и то много добри хора със своите обичаи, традиции  проблеми и празници,така както ги имат и другите общности. Смятам, че това може да сплоти помаците както зад граница така и навсякъде където се намират и това да спомогне да се опознават хората много повече в този глобален свят.Свят който ще съществува дори и когато някога всички ние ще се изгубим в небитието и ще останат само надгробните ни плочи и добрите дела направени от всеки човек! Според мен за това трябва на първо време да обявите идеите си и да обявите набирателна сметка за инициативата си, където и ние може да даме своят скромен принос за вас хората в чужбина и за името на всички помаци по различните краища на света! Досега сме правили неща все за прослава на всички останали, което не е лошо. Нека и ние да направим нещо за самите помаци и това нека да се знае и помни с добро!  :)

Nazmika, and they stick salute to the proposals made by you to build a mosque on Pomaks and be used by all Muslims, but to be known as the Pomaks mosque , and to separate from the cemetery Pomaks but enjoys and knows a the Pomaks cemetery. I support the idea of Sema Rohleva, to making cultural information center and club of Pomaks in America, for meeting, dating, folklore, and to exchange ideas and other good initiatives. This is to hear and see that Pomaks are people a lot of good people with their customs, traditions, problems and holidays, as they have other communities. I think this may shape Pomaks as abroad and wherever situated and to help people get to know much more in this global world. The world which will exist even if all we ever will lose nothing in and will remain only our grave slabs and good deeds done by everyone! I think this is the first to announce their ideas and ads escrow account for you initiative where we can dame its modest contribution to your country and people in the name of all Pomaks in different parts of the world! So far we did more things for the celebration of all that is not bad. Let us do something for themselves Pomaks and let us know and remember well!  :)

Искам само да вметна- Джемал е наш помак от моето село-Туховище и е историк по професия,сега в Чикаго е,и като има време винаги пише тук!
,  ми хрумна идеята че всъщност такива хора като Джемал са истинска ценност за виртуалната ни общност тука.
Бих се радвал ако самият Джемал не скронмичи толко и да се отпусне подобаващо , за да ни разкаже това което знае.
Предполагам че ще го оценим безпристрасно.
Само с такива хора начело ние можем да се измъкнем от режима на оцеляване в режим на развитие.
Парадоксалното е че аз познавам и една помакиня от Вълкосел която е преподавателка в американски университет в Арканзас , САЩ.
Тя се казва Fatme Myuhtar-May.

Назми може би я познаваш а?
Найстина е радващо че дори и на хиляди километри , цивилизования свят знае как да оценява интилектуалния потенциал независимо от произхода.
Ето един материал на англииски за нея:

Students receive Middle East study grants

Several people from ASU will travel to the Middle East this summer upon receiving a grant from the Middle East Studies Committee. Each year the committee awards grants to ASU students, faculty and staff for study and/or research in the Middle East.

This year's recipients of the grants are from various colleges and departments and have different purposes and goals for studying abroad. Nicole Jones, a sophomore journalism major, was awarded $4,812 to travel with a group from the University of Arizona to Cairo, Egypt for eight weeks. She will study reporting from the Middle East and will take a course in conversational Arabic.

"The Study Cairo program will help me embark on a journey that will begin a future filled with high expectations. I am eager and curious about this new experience," Nicole said.

Kristin Walker, a psychology major and music minor, received a grant worth $5,000 enabling her to accompany Arizona State University students/faculty members as they journey on the Summer Study Abroad Program to Jordan. In Jordan she will be taking two courses: Arabic culture and Islam, and she will also take part in an Independent Study. Kristin, who plans to pursue a Master's degree in Psychology or Music Therapy, stated "Music therapists are currently working in the West Bank in refugee camps as volunteers seek to enhance the refugees' quality of life. I believe that identifying and understanding the culture of the individuals in the Middle East is essential in the effort to aid their population sufficiently."

Fatme Myuhtar-May, a PhD Heritage Studies student, was also awarded a grant in the amount of $4,910 to travel to Bulgaria and Turkey to study and research the cultural identity of Pomaks (Bulgarian-speaking Muslims). Myuhtar-May plans to visit different communities, interview people, record songs and stories, attend social events, and visit local museum and heritage sites. The goal is to draw a comparative parallel between the life of the Pomaks in Bulgaria and Turkey. "This comparison has not been done before, and it is worth exploring for me," Myuhtar-May said.
