Abdel Rebaj

When I started to work at Flag I was in charge as accommodation councilor  then I worked to wait to the executives and the officers of Flag. I never did hold any positions like OSA staff to destroy lives. I always helped people.

Abdel Rebbaj was an amassing and kind person. He was in charge of the Hour Glass Restaurant at Flag. In 1984 the Corporate Church of Scientology started to insult Abdel’s kindness by reprimanding him for giving protein drinks to the Class XII –s. The Corporate Church broadly claimed he was wasting resources. It came out that he was doing it with his own resources.

Several years  after leaving the base Chef Abdel Rebbaj was featured with his culinary art all over the TV channels in the New American Chef Show. Abdel also opened a fine dining restaurant in New York City. Chef and proprietor Abdel Rebbaj specialized in exotic dishes such as full-size pigeon pie in flaky pastry, lobster in tomato and paprika sauce, and roast lamb. As appreciation to his culinary excellence, the King of Morocco  has sent his personal doctor to  Abdel.moroccan-meal-1

Now Lotfi’s, a Moroccan restaurant at 358 West 46th Street in New York, has become Capri. Abdel ’s  son made it Italian: “There was no way we could maintain the quality of the Moroccan food without my father,” He says.

Saffron Chicken Tajine with Prunes

Abdel Rebbaj recipe in The New American Chef

Serves 6

  • 2-3 Spanish onions, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated      ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
  • chicken for 6 people
  • 30 prunes
  • 1/4 honey
  • 3/4 cup toasted almonds
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • handful of cilantro, leaves      only, chopped
  • handful of flat leaf parsley, leaves only, chopped

In a large casserole pot, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil. Add ginger, saffron, salt and pepper, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the chicken pieces and simmer over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cover with water and simmer for another 50 minutes.

The recipe says to add the prunes and honey at the end and cook until heated through, but we added them just after the water was brought to a simmer. I wanted them to soften and for flavors to all come together.

When the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened some, mix in nuts and seeds. Garnish with cilantro and parsley.

Serve with couscous.

Moving On Up a Little Higher

What follows is a detailed insider view of the Flag Land Base (Scientology Inc’s Mecca is Clearwater Florida) of late.   Former RTC and Flag Auditor, Silvia Llorens gives a credible state of  the dis-union of Scientology Inc.

TO INDEPENDENT SCIENTOLOGISTS:

Hello! My name is Silvia Lloréns. I started  in Scientology in 1978, joined the SO in 1983 and left in early 2007.
I have read the numerous accounts on the experiences and viewpoints others have had and that have been expressed in various web pages; I do understand them.
All of them share one common point or conclusion: the suppression is coming primarily from COB (Chairman of Scientology Inc. David Miscavige) and some of his followers.
Now, I will share my experiences from the viewpoint I had then as a 24 years Sea Org Member. The years as a Scientologist are still counting as I have not ceased being one…

Remembrance Day

On remembrance day soldiers, sailors and airmen are commemorated. The other common name for this day is Armistice Day which marks the date and time when armies stopped fighting World War I. on November 11th at 11am in 1918 (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month). Some 100,000 Canadian soldiers died in the First and Second World Wars.

All government buildings fly the Canadian flag this day and people remember those who fought for Canada during a two minute silence at 11am. Many people wear poppies before and on Remembrance Day to show their respect and support for Canadian troops. Poppies are generally handed out free but often a voluntary donation is given in exchange.

In the United States this day is called Veteran’s Day

In Flanders Fields By:  Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders Fields the poppies

blow Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing,

fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved, and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch, be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
