Flaming rhetoric may lead to another unlucky Tuesday, according to Birakos novel
LOS ANGELES, June 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The fate of civilization will likely be decided another Black Tuesday, if obsessed advocates of past religious wars continue to cheer and applaud them.
In his novel “Unhappy Tuesday: Will civilization die on a Tuesday?” Jim birakos writing about Tuesday’s civilization was ruled dead, recounting the Ottomans’ violation of the impregnable walls of Constantinople and the desecration of Christendom’s historic cathedral, Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom).
Since then, Tuesdays have been considered unlucky.
Passions are always aroused by the event considered to be one of the great tragedies of history. This past May 29, the 568th year of the great fall, Turkey The President put on a kitsch light show combined with pageantry and provocative messages about Hagia Sophia, the largest and most famous Christian church for a thousand years.
The crescent moon that hung over the bloody city on the evening of its fall in 1543 is commemorated on the flags of Islamic nations.
The novel designates another Tuesday, September 11, 2001, when passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center, triggering the deadliest terrorist attack in American history.
“Unlucky Tuesday” describes an apparent link between these alarming events and a possible deadly date next Tuesday.
“All civilizations preserve their heritage by building great monuments and memorials,” Birakos said. “The generations that follow save them because they represent history and culture. But not Hagia Sophia. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was turned into a mosque, then a museum, then a mosque again, despite objections from around the world.
“Unlucky Tuesday” shows how history can repeat itself in a world tenaciously provoked by fiery rhetoric. In the book, a buried package containing a religious relic and classical books, as well as the Greek fire formula, is chased away by a Los Angeles journalist in Mani, Greece. But a Muslim terrorist leader hunts him down, eager to seize the secret formula of Greek fire and turn LA into a catastrophic fireball.
“The story has no end of the book,” Birakos said. “The past and the present are mixed up and mixed up thoroughly, and you never know when the past becomes the present.”
The official critic of Birakos’ work said: “If you know and love Dan Brown’s novels, then you’ll most likely find Unlucky Tuesday a book worth obsessing about. “
Posted by Amazon, “Unhappy Tuesday: Will Civilization Die on a Tuesday?” is available on Amazon.com. An electronic version is also available on Kindle.com.
