FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Vs XENOPHOBIA

Once upon a time 30 years ago, when the Berlin Wall fell, the wall of xenophobia began to build up.

Brown Philo-Semitic Spirits, Freedom of Expression and Xenophobia

 Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Once upon a time 30 years ago, when the Berlin Wall fell, the wall of xenophobia began to build up. I too was euphoric when I saw the cheering people at the Brandenburg Gate rejoice and breathed the air of freedom. As beautiful as this new freedom and the end of separation and the fall of the wall were, so bitter was the awakening. The GDR was a state of injustice and oppressed and spied on the citizens. Many who today have something to say at the forefront of German politics were, unlike they always try to portray, not victims of the system, but perpetrators. Did not we Germans like that before? When, after 1945, many Nazis were given back their old posts, while emigrants were defamed as traitors, it was the Cold War, Western allies and an ideological education that further spread the brown stink. The old parties became new and did not want to have anything to do with the past. But the past has not passed, it remains as a monument and is not possible without remembering.

Without Russia, no merger to a Germany

When the GDR was actually finished, it was Gorbachev’s merit to jump over the shadow of certain half-baked East German politicians and open the wall. This process testifies to its size. Without Russia, the GDR would never have become free and merged into a Germany. Even today, the differences are still large, but most former GDR citizens have now joined with the Federal Republic. Of course, there are many bitter and abandoned people, but are not they also in the West? It probably takes another generation to make this connection normal.

I have been dealing with this topic since my youth, but in Berlin I experienced the parallels, how the Cold War and the Springer press poisoned the “Berliner Luft”, until today.

Yes, the 9th of November: a day so historic in Germany must continue to be remembered as the commemoration day of the Pogrom Night in 1938, in the East as in the West. But what prevents us from celebrating November as the day of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and to regard this fall of the Wall as a reminder and as an incentive to think of the apartheid wall in Palestine and demand its fall in this context. After all, these data and walls are so closely linked.

Pro-Israeli attitudes conceal the ethnic-anti-Semitic attitude of the AfD

Equally connected are right-wing populism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. The AfD, the party that shows its discomfiture in the politics of remembrance so openly, has nothing to do with this “bird’s throats of history”, wants to be associated with the “memorial of shame” quite differently than Democrats imagine understands masterly, by their pro-Jewish and pro-Israeli attitude, their true völkisch anti-Semitic attitude to disguise. It is all the more reprehensible, if there is a group of Jews in this party, who feel that they belong to this right-wing extremist thinking and have integrated themselves into this “alternative for Germany”. On the other hand, it does not seem outlandish.

This is exactly what fits it, when AfD defense politician Gerold Otten calls for the deployment of the Bundeswehr at the German border, in order to protect them from refugees. The AfD floats a 50,000 strong reserve corps to reinforce 230,000 soldiers. There will certainly be discussions of a constitutional nature, as Otten said. All of this has been practiced by the Zionist regime for years and so is directed against Palestinians and “infiltrants”. Perhaps these German politicians also favors that Israeli colleagues participate as expert advisers in such missions. Especially since the German Air Force has participated in the International Exercise “Blue Flag” in the Negev Desert since Sunday, November 14, with about 130 soldiers and six Eurofighters of squadron 71 “Richthofen”. The Israel Defense Forces said the exercise was of “utmost strategic importance” in training various combat scenarios and techniques. Incidentally, the USA, Italy and Greece are among them! And so-called Israeli “anti-terrorist specialists” guard image newspaper already Jewish objects in Germany. Why is there no constitutional debate on this topic?

Not only does the Bundeswehr have many admirers in the “Jewish state”, it is also the AfD, which was praised by the Israeli newspaper Israel-Hayom for its Israeli friendliness. In fact, the similarity to Likud or other governing parties of the far-right Israeli spectrum can not be overlooked. (1)

A hateful, xenophobic offensive that is well received in the East

That the AfD is experiencing such a rise, especially in the East German states, the former GDR, should make us all think. After all, the strategy of national identity and migration, as well as the radical rejection of migration, Muslims and strangers, is so fertile that it should frighten us. In fact, many of these voters and Easterners have a xenophobia without strangers. Built on social envy, rejection of multi-cultural and immigration, the AfD was able to win more and more voters. The “Autumn Offensive” campaign quickly became a one-sidedly hateful and xenophobic offensive, and unfortunately that seems to be a good thing, especially in the East. This AfD has moved more and more in the direction of Björn Höcke, the differences are only marginal – between Gauland, Weidel, Meuthen and Beatrix v. Stork or Erika Steinbach, who is not (yet) an AfD member (but she is the director of the AfD-affiliated Desiderius Foundation), as well as the right-wing “Axis of the Good” publicist Vera Lengsfeld, be it a member or only “related”. But basically, everyone fits in a brown AFD bag. (2)

Thus one can observe the dangerous European phenomenon that the parties of the right-wing radicalism show a clearly pro-Israeli-Jewish attitude, so together with the “Jewish state” as a bulwark of the Christian-Jewish Western fight against Islam = terror and Palestinians = terrorists occur. In addition, an alleged Islamic anti-Semitism and a left-wing “anti-imperialist” anti-Semitism as a common enemy will be fought. Let us not forget that the President of the Central Committee, Schuster, was one of the first to demand an “upper limit” in 2015 after the first refugee reception of Syrian refugees. (3)

So we have almost identical demands – if Jewish organizations like the Zionist Gaza massacre demanded more solidarity with Israel, much like positions on the “Patriotic Platform,” which hopefully has now dissolved. This does not change the danger of the AfD and does not excuse any voter who chooses this party! (4)

It is 5 past 12

If now in Thuringia after the election 17 CDU politicians demand “open-ended” talks and the Thuringian parliamentary leader Michael Heym with (jealous!) Looking at the AFD election result of 23.4% and then says “You do not do democracy a favor if you beat up a quarter of the electorate “, then it’s 5 to 12! What about the three-quarters of the rest of the electorate? This disproves any democratic insight that I suspected even in the CDU. If Chancellor Merkel and CDU leader Kramp-Karrenbauer do not intervene here and try to save the last bit of CDU decency, then I see black and brown for this CDU. If CDU General Secretary Ziemiak can not think of anything better than the term “crazy”, then that’s crazy! As on election night after the disastrous CDU result of 21, 8% of the top candidate Möhring of course announced talks with the election winner and left Prime Minister Ramelow, he was immediately repulsed by the Berlin CDU party headquarters. If the CDU continues to move in that direction, it seems to me time to think about whether this chancellor and party is still governing. The SPD would be well advised to finally free themselves from “left animosity” against the left as a partner – even in the Bund – and to think about new strategies and alliances, instead of becoming more and more a CDU light. Otherwise, you will end up only a “self-employment” as a single-digit “splinter party”. he was immediately repulsed by the Berlin CDU party headquarters. If the CDU continues to move in that direction, it seems to me time to think about whether this chancellor and party is still governing. The SPD would be well advised to finally free themselves from “left animosity” against the left as a partner – also in the Bund – and to think about new strategies and alliances, instead of becoming more and more a CDU light. Otherwise, you will end up only a “self-employment” as a single-digit “splinter party”. he was immediately repulsed by the Berlin CDU party headquarters. If the CDU continues to move in that direction, it seems to me time to think about whether this chancellor and party is still governing. The SPD would be well advised to finally free themselves from “left animosity” against the left as a partner – even in the Bund – and to think about new strategies and alliances, instead of becoming more and more a CDU light. Otherwise, you will end up only a “self-employment” as a single-digit “splinter party”. to finally free themselves from “left animosity” against the left as a partner – also in the federation – and to think about new strategies and alliances, instead of becoming more and more a CDU light. Otherwise, you will end up only a “self-employment” as a single-digit “splinter party”. to finally free themselves from “left animosity” against the left as a partner – also in the federation – and to think about new strategies and alliances, instead of becoming more and more a CDU light. Otherwise, you will end up only a “self-employment” as a single-digit “splinter party”.

The AfD party has set off an avalanche and set the inhibition threshold of hate especially against Islam and Muslims in motion, the spiritual political arsonists and media also kindled, but were still outdated by the AfD. It is a rendition of rhetoric and deeds – like the murders of the NSU – that has not been taken seriously for a long time. Only the attack against the synagogue in Halle caused international attention. However, such far-right “individual perpetrators” have their spiritual helpers and cronies everywhere and pose a terrible threat to ALL of us, but of course more to hate objects such as Muslims and Jews. While the NSU murders were not taken seriously at the beginning, the grave desecration of the grave of my father Heinz Galinski is still unresolved, The state is now becoming ever more attentive when it comes to its politicians. After the terrible murder of the local politician Lübcke they thought about what a danger, especially since the politicians felt particularly affected. In the ominous extreme right-wing threatening letters to the Greens Claudia Roth and Cem Özdemir the excitement is great, the state is now “woken up”. This excitement I would have liked in the threatening letters against the Frankfurt-based lawyer with Turkish roots, Seda Basay-Yildiz, which she got from a group NSU2.O, she was one of the co-plaintiff representatives in the NSU trial. In the ominous extreme right-wing threatening letters to the Greens Claudia Roth and Cem Özdemir the excitement is great, the state is now “woken up”. This excitement I would have liked in the threatening letters against the Frankfurt-based lawyer with Turkish roots, Seda Basay-Yildiz, which she got from a group NSU2.O, she was one of the co-plaintiff representatives in the NSU trial. In the ominous extreme right-wing threatening letters to the Greens Claudia Roth and Cem Özdemir the excitement is great, the state is now “woken up”. This excitement I would have liked in the threatening letters against the Frankfurt-based lawyer with Turkish roots, Seda Basay-Yildiz, which she got from a group NSU2.O, she was one of the co-plaintiff representatives in the NSU trial.

Here avenged the German well-known policy, which always understood only the left as an enemy and who always regarded the rights with benevolent gaze. While the KPD was banned and the Radikaleerlass suffered much under the Willy Brandt government in 1972, many left-leaning careers were destroyed – in line with the motto “Left out and Nazis in” – the Republicans and the NPD were not banned , (5) (6)

What we do not need are walls and politicians on the leash of secretly governing Lobbyists

Like the left, Islam has a hard time in Germany. As in the Western media against Muslims, Turkey and Islam stir up the prejudices, the Islamophobia in the population has been scarily promoted. Only in this way could right-wing populism and the AfD increase in this way. The demonization of Iran and Islam by Hamas, Hezbollah at the instigation of the US and the Israel lobby has taken on alarming proportions with slogans such as “Iranian Holocaust”, “backwardness, misogyny and honor killings in Islam, Muslim anti-Semitism, the Koran as a dangerous book: Sure for surah “, to list only a few Hetzbeispiele.

Is not there an increasing instrumentalization of religions in the “Jewish state” and in Christian evangelicals, who act as great “friends of the Jews”? Why then point to Islam and defame it? Through this dangerous development, Western society has become complicit in ever-increasing Islam hatred. (7)

What we need is a tolerant and open society that lives together free of ideologies in a multicultural Germany and Europe without prejudice. That is possible and will soon be desired. In fact, we need about 400,000 workers in Germany who can dignify and grow old with dignity and alms. But what we do not need are walls and self-serving politicians who do not think about the country and us citizens, but only to the lobbyists, the secret rulers.

The problem is the brown spirits and xenophobia

What we do not need at all is a constant armament increase and an increase in the defense budget. Equally, there must be an end to Russia’s and Turkey’s hostile foreign policy. No war missions and interference in foreign conflicts. We do not need a raison d’être for the “Jewish state” and support for its anti-settlements policy of settlement and expulsion.

Not the anti-Semitism and its definition – with more than questionable conclusions – are the problem, but it is the brown spirits and xenophobia. False philosemitic Israeli friends saw the foundations of democracy. Freedom of expression also applies to BDS supporters and critics of Israel and is a high good worth defending. It is worth arguing for that. (8) (9)

We do not need brown philo-Semitic spirits that undermine freedom of expression and fuel xenophobia!

LOVE IN JERUSALEM CAUGHT ON CAMERA

Israeli occupation forces brutally beating number of Palestinians in Al wad road in the old city of Jerusalem

AS IF WE DIDN’T KNOW ….. ZIONISM IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Why are the Palestinian rights, which also include a legal and UN-approved right of return to their stolen and occupied homeland, portrayed here as a terror that threatens Israel and its right to exist? This is a crime that, like the National Law, restricts even more the rights of all minorities and has as little to do with democracy as Zionism.

Zionism is a Crime Against Humanity 

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

When AKK, the new German Minister of War, Annegret Kramp-K (n) arrenberger, made her inaugural visit to the “Jewish State,” Israel’s security was the German raison d’etre. She was so motivated by her attachment to the “Jewish state” that she particularly pointed out that her first trip abroad, outside the EU, was going to Israel, that she was consciously choosing to speak in Israel as a privilege. According to “boss” Merkel, who in 2008 had already made the German state rationale for the security of Israel a “matter of the heart”. Even then AKK words should have made us deeply worried – their words of recognition to Israel, how to learn from Israel in terms of defense and cybersecurity.

Israel’s reign of terror

What we learn from Israel is how an apartheid state has managed to become a victim of the Holocaust, building a reign of terror over the illegal occupation of Palestine, which is unique in the world. As Netanyahu once said when it came to US support, the Jewish lobby in the US is so strong that we can expect support again and again.

In fact, this support, which is supported by all parties in Germany – supported by the lobby – has become official and uncritical policy. While Jewish settlements, war crimes and crimes against international law are being promoted as “self-defense” to actively support this small, allegedly only enemy-threatened country, the systematic destruction of Palestinian infrastructure and life here is virtually unnoticed or philosemitically ignored.

Why are the Palestinian rights, which also include a legal and UN-approved right of return to their stolen and occupied homeland, portrayed here as a terror that threatens Israel and its right to exist? This is a crime that, like the National Law, restricts even more the rights of all minorities and has as little to do with democracy as Zionism.

AKK as an Israeli combat drone

So, if AKK demands a “security zone” for Syria, why has not it made this demand to Israel, which almost daily violates sovereign rights and airspaces through drone surveillance and attacks? Why are more than questionable Kurdish fighters supported, but Palestinian resistance fighters defamed as terrorists? Because the “Jewish state” and the Israel lobby are massively pursuing this “whispering policy” and have German philosemitic functionaries firmly in their hands?

When AKK emphasized responsibility for the present and the future during her visit to the “Jewish State” out of historical guilt and presented this as a “personal” obligation in the spirit of hope and friendship, she was actually aware of how she was doing so International law and human rights trample? While AKK as CDU chairman and “Minister of Defense” sought to profile themselves on all “waves” in order to finally position themselves for the chancellorship.

Her request to intervene in Syria and to demand an international security zone in the Syrian territory to Turkey seemed to her the opportunity for the “liberation blow”. When she brashly styled and styled on ZDF on Monday night and acted like Merkel’s model in the red blazer – but still with a cross around her neck – one could almost see how the prospects for German military cooperation and leadership inspired her. AKK, which made itself such a self-important “combat drone”, wanted to see their initiative as an important contribution in view of the difficult humanitarian situation in northern Syria. AKK wanted to position itself internationally to take control, so as not to let Russia and Turkey alone to cooperate. While she probably already dreams of that “her” Bundeswehr troops will intervene there, she knows very well that the Bundestag must decide on it. We do not know whether it will come back to the UNO decision on German actions, but with this kind of politicians this is quite conceivable.

Right-wing extremist friendships

While she briefed her colleague AA-Maas about her plans and said that she was surprised, and that she sees “still need for discussion” in the proposals and considers it too early for such considerations, you can not be sure how he and the SPD will finally decide when it comes to the “Gro / Ko” sausage? After all, it is precisely this Foreign Minister in terms of the “Jewish State” so connected with the views of the CDU colleague. Had he not announced his deep attachment to Israel during his visit to Israel, since he had gone into politics because of Auschwitz, building up a friendship with a far-right former colleague? With Ayeled Shaked, who did not hesitate to make their election campaign with reference to this “friendship”?

In fact, Maas actually complained about Israel’s “exclusion” by the UN in May and that it did not behave correctly towards Israel. Indeed, the “Auschwitz Minister” actually vowed to strengthen Jerusalem’s position in foreign policy to end this “painful and unsatisfactory” state, to strengthen Israel’s present and legitimate interests, and to block any attempt to delegitimize or isolate the “Jewish state”. to prevent. So what else can we expect from these politicians, who continue to side with an apartheid and occupied state that knowingly disregards international law and commits war crimes of the worst kind?

Of course, what Israel is allowed to do when it comes to Turkey is very different. A violation of international law will only be punished and sanctions will only be demanded if it is allegedly committed by Russia or Turkey. Let us be relieved that the US is withdrawing from Syria. But they will have trouble stationing these “great Trump’s troops.” Already dismisses the Iraq and do not want to have these troops in the country, after all, one has enough experience with US war troops made.

Syrian refugees: product of criminal Zionist power politics?

But my big worry is that the “Jewish deputy” is already clenching his hooves, waiting to intervene in Syria to kill two birds with one stone: to weaken Assad so that he no longer has any claims on the illegally occupied and Golan Heights, which belongs to Syria. To eliminate Iran definitively and to blow it completely out of Syria. Was not it Israel, which from the beginning put the fray on Syria, Lebanon and Iran, to fire the fire as a fire-accelerant. Are not the many Syrian refugees today and the Palestinian people in Lebanon a victim of this criminal Zionist power politics?

If we had not had Turkey, which took away the millions of refugees, we would be even more stupid. Merkel would not do anything without the Turkey agreement. Israel in particular is a master in refugee creation and then rejects it. (Except for Jewish people) This is one of the reasons why AfD and the Zionist regime work so well together. The fight against Muslims connects them. The rise of right-wing extremists worldwide has made Zionist politics even more powerful.

Kramp Karrenbauer and Merkel should take care that they do not take over if they make big foreign policy. Neither Russia nor Turkey will take a long look at these “AKK games”. If now also the “left” Katja Kipping Erdogan and Turkey threatens and even calls to freeze his accounts, then the incompetent ladies trio is complete.

A state that disregards international and human rights must have no right to exist

When it comes to Jewish concerns, all “values” are nullified, and all that matters is the security and existence of a “Jewish state,” which as a state that disregards international and human rights, has no right to exist , As long as the existence of a Palestinian state and sovereignty of this people is not supported, the “Jewish state” can not be supported. However, we are further away than ever. Also elections will not change anything in Israel nothing.

If outgoing EU Commission President Juncker prides himself on not having one of the world’s 60 or so ongoing wars taking place in Europe, that is very “pleasant”, but covers up an important fact that we are making a lot of money on these wars and pursue their own economic interests. Oil fields and natural gas must be protected, that is the maxim of “economic values”, the basis of geopolitics. Has not Israel been trying for some time to profitably exploit the huge oilfields on its doorstep?

If the final goal of the Federal Government is the new military strength, ever higher arms spending and arms sales, perhaps with the “ultimate goal” of horror and the stationing of nuclear weapons, then it is time for us to defend ourselves against it as German citizens Contribute to politics.

When human rights statements degenerate into phrases …

If the European Union pretends to defend human rights and speaks of values ​​to be defended, but all these “values” become phrases, then it is overdue that finally a rethinking takes place and the “Jewish state” as an apartheid state and illegal Occupying power is treated. As long as millions of Palestinians are deprived of their rights to live in dignity and freedom, and Germany does not face historical and contemporary responsibility, as long as we, who criticize Israel and support the Boycott Disinvestment Sanctions Movement (BDS), become criminals Anti-Semites should be made and the freedom of expression should be silenced, as long as it pays to stand up for it, especially in Germany!

Yes, I support the statement by Turkish President Erdogan that “Zionism is a crime against humanity”.

THE END OF TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY

 Week after week, Israel is trying hard to fuel conflicts. Again and again they fly air strikes against Hezbollah in Lebanon, then against Assad in Syria, then against Iraq. They take the right to use drones to “monitor” the residents and the foreign airspace. Everything is being attempted to prepare a war against Iran and Lebanon with this policy of provocations and pinpricks, which does not stop at human victims.

With Blessings from the ‘Chosen One’

Territorial integrity for all states!

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

What about the term “territorial integrity”? If the Netanyahu regime continues to violate them and invoke threats and “self-defense”? Will territorial integrity be tacitly suspended if Zionists violate it? It seems so in the face of Israel’s constant attacks on sovereign neighboring states. Week after week, Israel is trying hard to fuel conflicts. Again and again they fly air strikes against Hezbollah in Lebanon, then against Assad in Syria, then against Iraq. They take the right to use drones to “monitor” the residents and the foreign airspace. Everything is being attempted to prepare a war against Iran and Lebanon with this policy of provocations and pinpricks, which does not stop at human victims. The psychological warfare is also used by the Netanyahu regime, and one does not shy away from being staged with fake blood to suggest to the public a Hezbollah attack with Israeli victims that did not exist! This regime and its “defensive army” are afraid of nothing to achieve their darker goals. (1)

The new state religion of the Israeli state terror regime

This Jewish “defense army”, which not only conducts raids, targeted murders, demolitions of houses and the Jewish occupation of Palestine on behalf of the Jewish “state terror regime”, has now become a magnet for young Jewish Diaspora Jews. Through worldwide Hasbara propaganda, young Jews are taught this army as the new state religion. Massive agitation campaigns promote a “Sabbath year” in the “most moral defense army,” so as to engage young Jews in the diaspora to connect with the “Jewish state.” This type of advertisement for this new “state religion”, also here in Germany, should be just as inadmissible as the recruitment for Syrian fighters. If it were a Muslim state, it would certainly be stopped immediately.

While Israel’s lobby, like mushrooming countless “anti-Semitism commissioners,” the Central Council of Jews, or other “Christian Zionists” willingly be allowed to trim textbooks and teachers on “Israel course,” there should finally be double standards while Jewish agitations and schools can always be sure of “Christian-Jewish” solidarity.

One of our “values”, which is always explained by politicians, is certainly not the support of the mediation of illegal Israeli politics, which on the contrary would have to be stopped immediately! There can be no recruiting for foreign armies from German soil, and that includes the “Jewish State” and the IDF. Because this army uses weapons and soldiers to maintain the illegal occupation; that is, these crimes that violate international law must not be supported by German soil. This support for Israel does not contribute to peacekeeping but drives Germany into a new debt. Therefore, there can be no German state reason for the Nibelung loyalty to the “Jewish state” at the expense of the Palestinians.

Annexation “with God’s help”

Israel has been trying for years to involve the US in a war with Iran. While US President Trump avoids war for his campaign, colleague Netanyahu seems to need the war to make his campaign more bloody. He is currently announcing to his “chosen people” that there will be no more settlements so that the 600,000 Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem can be sure of their “eternal right of abode”. Under the slogan “this is our land” he insists on the annexation of the Jewish settlements and wants to “help with God’s help” to achieve sovereignty of all settlements in the “biblical” land of Israel.

The fact that he is getting closer and closer to this “final solution to the Palestinian question” seems more and more likely in view of the impunity and the looking away of the international community. Due to the “special treatment” when it comes to the “Jewish state”, even laws lose their validity and are annulled! Systematic Israeli crimes have been tolerated for decades, while the UN and EU abandon the Palestinian people and expose them to injustice.

The respected South African lawyer John Dugard at the DLF learned sobering facts about the power of the “Jewish state”. In secret meetings and pressure against the Chief Prosecutor of the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Fatou Bensouda, she was forced to stop investigating the Israeli crimes requested by the Palestinian Authority.

“Green light” for screaming injustice

So if Jewish governments get “green light” from the ISGH for the injustice that has been shouting for decades, then what else can one expect from politicians and governments?

Especially the German government and the German Federal President should be aware of the responsibility they have towards the Palestinian people, the last victims of Nazi rule! The warm words of Federal President Steinmeier on the occasion of the central commemoration ceremony on the occasion of the German invasion of Poland, with which began 80 years ago, the Second World War, were not very credible, you can see the sad reality.

While Steinmeier asks for forgiveness for Germany’s crimes and historical guilt and points to the suffering of the victims, then it would be time to take a look at the founding of the “Jewish state” of Israel and the expulsion of the Palestinians from their homeland, because Without the Holocaust, this would be inconceivable. Likewise the US Vice Pence, who said at the same commemoration ceremony these words “freedom is the destiny for all mankind”. Unfortunately, it is precisely the US government that actively contributed to the Palestinians living under Jewish Zionist occupation being excluded from this freedom.

Racially motivated disinterest in the Palestinians

Yes, the Holocaust has also victimized the Palestinians. But this guilt ignores Germany, one sees the one-sided German policy towards the “Jewish state” and the obviously racially motivated lack of interest in the Palestinians and their claim to self-determination and freedom, with the constant painstaking repetition of the phrase “the two-state solution “Who have neither wanted nor want the Netanyahu regime and all the other regimes before.

Steinmeier would be well advised if he finally recognized the overdue guilt and responsibility towards the Palestinians, and so did a speech in illegally occupied Palestine. The German arrogance, which makes perverse differences in the victim rating, is a shame. While Jewish victims and their descendants are unilaterally supported with all their might, this is considered superfluous by Palestinians. Jewish Zionist perpetrators are always seen in the right, while Palestinians are always suspected of terror.The Zionist Hasbara propaganda has masterfully managed to implant this reversal of guilt in German politician brains. Germany has internalized its guilt and atonement so deeply that it is easy to use this behavior specifically by “Jewish lobby groups”.

While we fully support NATO aggression and indulge in US ties, Russia is steadily becoming an enemy. In the Russian Crimea, international law is endeavored and interpreted unilaterally, it does not matter in the illegal occupation of Palestine! While sanctions against Russia or Iran are decided with ease, they are seen as anti-Semitic sacrilege against the “Jewish state”.

German guilt is indivisible

How could Germany just allow it, at the commemoration in Poland and before in the commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz, to exclude Russia? Was not it Soviet soldiers who liberated Auschwitz and was it not 27 million war victims that the Soviet Union had to complain about?German guilt is indivisible and can not be used like Hasbara propaganda at will, as in the current case of the “German-Soviet non-aggression pact,” which haunts content as undifferentiated as “Hitler-Stalin pact” by the media. (2)

Operating peace policy means that today’s Russia under President Putin should be our partner. Neither Trump nor Netanyahu fill this role. The danger increases that we are drawn by their policies more and more into wars and illegal international actions, which will never let AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN.

International law should be binding on all countries, including, of course, the Jewish state. Territorial integrity applies to all states, including those that are arbitrarily attacked by the “Jewish state”. To stop these attacks must also be German responsibility.

CHOSEN BY GOD TO CONQUER

Let us not allow the slogan “God, God, God, you have chosen us to conquer” lead to the final solution.

God, God, God, you have chosen us to conquer

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

Again and again, Zionist politicians try to justify their terrorist crimes with Old Testament and Talmud proverbs. The 71-year massacre of Deir Yassin was one of the first cruel examples of wanton and rabid Zionist killing. When Menachem Begin, the then leader of the Irgun terrorist group, described this massacre of the inhabitants of this place, women, men and children, as a “magnificent act of conquest,” he exclaimed, “Israel made history with this attack, as in Deir Yassin we will attack and strike the enemy everywhere. God, God, God, you have chosen us to conquer. ” (1) (2)

Today, 71 years later, after a large-scale attack in Syria, Prime Minister Netanyahu “tweeted” against “Iranian religious guards” and Hezbollah, as well as trying to justify the Talmud: “If someone gets up to kill you, kill him first.”

Terrorists as top politicians

It seems as if before and after the founding of the state in 1948 it helped to promote career in the “Jewish state”, if one had a terrorist background and earned his spurs in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in Zionist militias, which later merged into the Jewish “defensive army” and whose commanders later all became political leaders. These terrible massacres belonged to the Zionist strategy that led to the Nakba, the catastrophe for the Palestinian people, which continues to this day.

Terrorism, military occupation and colonial expansion are among the most important Zionist values ​​and their tactics. Just as the Zionist movement and its organizations placed terrorist acts, such as bombs on vegetable markets and explosives, in full cafés by their leaders before the founding of the state, to gain control of Palestine is unprecedented. Especially since all of the responsible terrorists later became politicians, prime ministers and ministers – like Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin, Ariel Sharon, Yitzhak Shamir, Moshe Dayan and Rafael Eitan, just to name a few of the “chosen” leaders. This list could be completed for a few pages, and it would be so bloody and violently littered, and hardly bearable in cruel perversities.

The ruthless Zionist strategy of ethnic cleansing and destructive warfare, and decades of illegal occupation of Palestine to this day, shows how ruthlessly one behaved against children, the old and the frail.

Permanent fact twist

To this day, every Zionist state terror regime has always described itself as a “small threatened people” that must act in order not to be destroyed. With this permanent twisting of facts, this state, armed to the teeth and by no means threatened, with at least nuclear weapons, was able to continually perfect the attacking, threatening, murdering, occupation, land grabbing and ethnic cleansing by referring to the phrase “never again holocaust” , It has to be repeated, the Holocaust does not justify all means and crimes. (2)

The Holocaust is actually one of the worst crimes in history, but just one in the long history of humanity, and yes, we have to do everything for it, and that is our mission from our story that “never again” is a genocide! And above all, do not look the other way, if injustice happens, not even when it comes to Israel, which has done wrong for decades!

Even before the founding of the state in 1948, long before the Holocaust, around 1881, the leaders of the Zionist movement in Europe began the colonization of Palestine to make it the “exclusive home” for Jews, ignoring the rights of the indigenous Arab population and paving the way for the Nakba – Ruins of the destroyed Palestinian villages and expulsion of their inhabitants. The “uprooting and emptying”, the “transfer” of refugees and residents, was from the beginning of state doctrine and is still practiced today. Again and again “resettled”, expelled and massacred, everything is justified with the security of the “Jewish state” and its Jewish residents. This violent legacy that still shapes the state of Israel today.

How long will the Zionist state terrorist aggression accept?

It has not changed much, rather it has the feeling that everything has become much worse by the cowardly silence of the so-called “world community”, which now also endangers world peace. Certainly it is not Iran that threatens Israel with a holocaust, as the Israeli regime’s Zionist hasbara propaganda tells us, but in fact it is the “Jewish Chosen Exclusivity” on Palestine and the daily threat to its neighbors. (3)

The Jewish state takes the right to attack sovereign states. Targeted and merciless, the Jewish “defense army” is out to murder and, as it wants, repeatedly attacks targets in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. As always without proof, but with active media and political support.

Even Hezbollah’s domestic opponent, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, was forced by the “Star Wars drone attack” last Sunday to declare in a statement the Israeli “aggression” threatening stability in the region and exacerbating tensions. But even these aggression do not raise the alarm bells in the community of states, and I wonder how long will you still accept the regular Zionist state terrorist aggression without contradiction? Will you wait until the first “Star of David” atomic bomb, perhaps shot down by a German submarine, is used “preventively” because of a perceived threat?

Instead of the sick relationship with Israel, friendship with Iran and with Russia!

Servile make the German government – the politicians as well as the media – always the official propaganda of the Israeli Hasbara own. On the other hand, it is emphasized again and again that one does not want a new war, but in fact the continuous attacks are already being worked on.

Why do not we resist when the US and Israel try to change world politics with maximum pressure and deals in their favor? Why do not we hear from the German “Auschwitz Minister” on this explosive topic? When will Germany finally start to make a policy in OUR interests, with Iran and with Russia? A good neighborhood and friendship with these countries should be important to us. It is not the apartheid state of Israel that should be our ally, but Israel that abandons the occupation of Palestinian land and respects international law and human rights!

The German ill relationship to Israel and the morbid behavior of some Christian Zionists is exemplified by the Hessian anti-Semitism commissioner, mayor and city treasurer Becker, who hallucinates of a “noise of anti-Semitism” in “broad sections of society”. You can only shake your head over how brainwashing goes on with the help of dubious Israel lobbyists to make any form of Israel criticism impossible. It fits in that media, schools, universities and other public education institutions should be trimmed on “Israel course”. Becker also shares his opinion (!) That the BDS movement is anti-Semitic, which it definitely and demonstrably does not, and he also repeatedly discredits this non-violent, also supported by Jews protest campaign publicly as “hatred of the Jews”. (4)

Should the last “hardcore Zionists” wait for the biblical end time!

The Germans should finally take an example of Jewish US citizens who are increasingly turning away from politicians and parties that support and finance the “Jewish state” and its murderous occupation and expulsion policies. In the end, only the “hardcore Zionists” and their evangelical helpers, the allies of AIPAC and similar Jewish lobby groups and friends of the occupation will remain in the US. They can then wait together for the biblical end time. It is obvious that all these enemies of peace are not interested in a peaceful solution and they prefer to head for a disaster a la Armaggedon.

Let us not allow the slogan “God, God, God, you have chosen us to conquer” lead to the final solution.

ODE TO HIROSHIMA

“I AM BECOME DEATH THE DESTROYER OF WORLD” 

By Tom Karlson

 

August 6th nineteen and forty-five
Enola Gay flies high
8:15
bombs away, Little Boy

8:16 one hundred fifty-thousand dead, vaporized
two hundred-thousand Hibakusha,
zombies stagger down streetless streets
silhouetting their dead friends, family
a cityless city
called Hiroshima

on a standing wall an image of
a man, a woman, burned into the brick’s retina

the little haberdasher is not done
“using the bomb is no great decision”

August 9th,
he orders Bockscar to drop Fat Man,
ninety thousand exterminated, vaporized
Hiroshima and Nagasaki will sing no more

Eisenhower “…the Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn’t necessary to hit them with that awful thing.”

MacArthur “…no military justification for the dropping of the bomb. The war might have ended weeks earlier, if the United States had agreed, as it later did anyway, to the retention of the institution of the emperor.”

“Albert Einstein…President Roosevelt would have forbidden the atomic bombing of Hiroshima had he been alive and that it was probably carried out to end the Pacific war before Russia could participate.”

UNCOVERING THE ATTEMPTS TO STEAL ALL OF PALESTINIAN LAND

Thanks to the Israeli daily Haaretz, this attempt, which has been going on for years, to make the Nakba (catastrophe) disappear into secret archives, has been uncovered.

Soon it will all be gone 😦

Zionist, you stole Palestine, give it back. 

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

 

No, the story can not be covered up, every attempt is doomed to failure in the long run. Even though the “Jewish State” maintains the most efficient “cover-up center”, the secretive security section of the Zionist “War Department” for “blue-and-white washing”. (1) The documents about the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, the evidence of expulsion, deportations of about 800,000 Palestinians, massacres, rape, raids and destruction by the “Jewish Defense Army” at the founding of the state on its murderous way to the Judaisierung, one wants again to the secret thing do. Thanks to the Israeli daily Haaretz, this attempt, which has been going on for years, to make the Nakba (catastrophe) disappear into secret archives, has been uncovered. (2)

“Jewish state” finally revealed as an apartheid state

According to Haaretz, a group of civil society organizations, historians and archivists called on Prime Minister Netanyahu to order the current Malmab cover-up leader Nir Ben Menashe to end the agency’s policy and thus the cover-up and immediately re-open the documents or return the ones that had already been removed and to preserve the last appearance of democracy. This authority causes serious damage to any historical research. However, it is unlikely that this state will reflect, but rather it will try as usual to discredit unpleasant researchers and scientists. It is the direct attempt to eradicate Palestine forever. It’s just the one more attempt to guarantee the sole claim of the “chosen Jewish people” forever. This claim is as false and unlawful as the national state law, which finally exposes the “Jewish state” as an apartheid state.

Do not distort history unilaterally Zionistically

As little as the sole claim to Jerusalem as the eternal and undivided capital of the “Jewish state” will endure, it will be impossible in the long run to falsify history unilaterally Zionistically. The plundering of the PLO archives in 1982, the transfer of parts of the documents to Israel as well as the raid and plundering of the Orient House in East Jerusalem were already attempts to free themselves from their own war crimes and their own guilt – always with the reference to the security interests of the “Jewish state”

Even Jewish citizens are denigrated as anti-Semitic

The fact that Malmab’s former director, Yehiel Horev, who led the agency until 2007, justifies the cover-up with reference to state security, which can also affect foreign policy, is exactly the same as that country’s “only” democracy in the country The Middle East, however, more and more proves how far away it is from this claim. A country that has been built on destruction and permanent violation of international law and denounces any criticism of its policies as anti-Semitic, even defamed even Jewish citizens as anti-Semites, has forfeited any claim to recognition and support.

Primer in the Nakba

Also, the expulsion of the Bedouins, which continues to this day, is a dark chapter of the founding of the state. Of course, it is completely impossible to unwrap all the documents, books and studies on the subject. So what remains is the Hasbara (propaganda), which is state-sponsored and scientifically supported, to draw these writings as implausible and untrue into Zionist mud. It seems that only after the publication of many historical books on the Nakba, did they notice which explosives were in them and how the public reacted to them.

Zionist methods of the state terror regime

It is the usual Zionist methods with which this state terror regime wants to make its documented crimes and massacres disappear into Zionist Nirwarna. As forcefully as Ilan Pappe described these events and thus historically documented for eternity, hardly any other historian did and does, no wonder that he is so hostile to the Israel lobby. After all, so many details about the secretive facts of founding a state are hard to bear.

The myth of clean Zionism has long since become a farce. Even today, people are afraid that even more details will be published than known, which could lead to unrest and turmoil. It would be so easy to finally clean and face the blame.

Holocaust impossible without connection to Nakba

Instead, one refers again and again to the guilt of the Holocaust and its uniqueness. But how can you see the Holocaust without a connection to the Nakba? Is not the founding of the state and the mass expulsion of the Palestinians as a sad consequence of the Holocaust to see? After all, it is this uniqueness of this Zionist state foundation at the expense of the Palestinian people, with the attempt to make Palestine disappear in order to make the Jewish state shine. How Israel has succeeded in wiping out the Palestinian villages, all cultural traces, the language, the identity, is beyond perfidy. Yes, the “Jewish state” is the master of Judaization at the expense of another people. People were blown up without pity for homeless families.

Like many other massacres, Deir Yassin is still unpunished today, as is the Nakba in general. The attempt to undo it by covering up has already failed forever. It is thanks to Israeli organizations such as Zochrot that the tracks of hundreds of Palestinian villages and people have not been forgotten. When the National Socialists tried to make Germany “Jew-pure” in order to make the “Aryan race” the only German representation of the “bio-German”, this was an attempt to destroy a religious community. Just as one remembers this annihilation to this day, it is time finally to commemorate the systematic evictions of the Nakba. Today, German politicians keep making a pilgrimage to the memorial site for the millions of murdered Jews after Yad Vashem.

Only the path of memory leads to a new beginning

What recklessness is gone over is unprecedented and should just shame Jewish citizens and their philosemitic helpers and finally move to thinking and rethinking. How can one remember a guilt without remembering the other? After all, only the path of memory leads to a new beginning.

When will we see the international community finally becoming aware of what it is doing with the support of this Jewish apartheid state? This state, which also has nuclear weapons and the worst new weapons systems, and is becoming increasingly threatening for its neighbors Lebanon, Syria and Iran, thanks to US and European aid, must finally be sanctioned. For let us not forget, it is not Iran that threatens Israel, but it is the Netanyahu regime and its US aides threatening peaceful Iran.

Covering up the story is impossible

Although historical past and war crimes can be covered up for a while, they can not be made to disappear. A “revision” of its history is impossible, and the State of Israel has no legal basis for doing so. But is this state still ready to submit to the law? Probably not, because law and democracy are incompatible with Zionism and the Jewish state, which is only concerned with obscuring historical truth and lying to a suitable and glorifying Jews together. But lies and defamation have short legs, and Zionists who stole Palestine have to give it back.

ISRAELI SOLDIERS CELEBRATE ‘VICTORY’ OVER PALESTINE

Today I post the reactions of those soldiers as they celebrate their ‘victory’.

SHAME ON THEM!

 

DEMOLISHING HOMES INSTEAD OF WALLS

NOT HOMES!

Israeli forces began Monday demolishing buildings in an East Jerusalem neighborhood under the control of the Palestinian Authority, following a legal challenge to the Defense Ministry-issued order to evacuate apartments deemed too close to the West Bank separation barrier, which runs through the city.

The International Court of Justice in The Hague issued an advisory opinion in 2004 that building the barrier on occupied territory was “contrary to international law.”

Israel Begins Demolition of 70 Homes in Palestinian-controlled East Jerusalem Neighborhood

Forces deploy at dawn days after top court approves order to evict Wadi Hummus residents, in a move activists are concerned sets a precedent to affect thousands

Israeli forces began Monday demolishing buildings in an East Jerusalem neighborhood under the control of the Palestinian Authority, following a legal challenge to the Defense Ministry-issued order to evacuate apartments deemed too close to the West Bank separation barrier, which runs through the city.

Israeli and international activists said Israeli forces deployed in the neighborhood at dawn, evacuating one family from one of the buildings, as well as activists who protested the move.

Two hours prior to the demolition, activists say they saw Israel Defense Forces‘ soldiers placing explosives in an eight-stories building set for demolition. Later, the forces removed furniture and vehicles that were parked next to the buildings.

Aviv Tatarsky, a researcher for the left-wing Ir Amim organization, blasted the move, saying: “In the name of the demographic war waged against East Jerusalem residents, the State of Israel is withholding approval of construction plans allowing those residents to legally build within the city.

“Residents who didn’t want to build without a permit, sought a creative solution and were granted construction permits from the Palestinian Authority to build in areas and A and B where Israel doesn’t have any authority concerning construction plans. The Israeli insistence to prevent this solution is a very cruel act,” Tatarsky added.

“I built this house stone by stone. It was my dream to live in this house. Now I am losing everything,” said Fadi al-Wahash, 37, his voice breaking as a bulldozer destroyed his unfinished three-floor house.

“I had a permit to build from the Palestinian Authority. I thought I was doing the right thing,” he said.

Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said 700 police and 200 soldiers were involved.

“Despite an order from the military commander, the residents there are making their own law, building. There are hundreds of illegal structures,” he told Israel’s Army Radio.

“To my regret there is no sufficient governance there. But it is not just that there are hundreds of structures there — several dozens of them sit almost on the route of the separation fence, endangering the security forces that operate there.”

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said the Palestinians would complain to the International Criminal Court about the demolitions in Sur Baher.

“The cabinet condemns this grave aggression. This is a continuation of the forced displacement of the people of Jerusalem from their homes and lands — a war crime and a crime against humanity,” Shtayyeh said.

In June, Israel’s High Court of Justice has ruled in favor of the demolition of 13 large buildings in the Wadi Hummus neighborhood, located on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

It is on the edge of the Palestinian village of Sur Baher, in southeast Jerusalem. Unlike the rest of the village, this neighborhood lies beyond the city’s municipal boundaries, in the West Bank. Most of the area it occupies is designated as part of Area A – i.e., under the control of the Palestinian Authority.

Sur Baher residents say Wadi Hummus is the only area that remains for future expansion of the village, which is surrounded by the fence and Jewish neighborhoods.

The Defense Ministry instructed to demolish some 70 apartments, citing concerns over their proximity to the separation fence, which it said made them a security threat. Two out of the 13 buildings set for demolition are populated with some 17 residents.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator, and other UN officials called on the Israeli authorities last week to halt the demolition plans. The European Union issued a statement saying: “The continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for a lasting peace.”

On Sunday, the court rejected a petition to postpone the demolition, which Palestinian activsts are concerned sets a precedent that will enable the demolition of thousands of buildings across the West Bank, effectively annulling the legal protection residents of other PA-controlled areas have.

“Some families put everything they have to put a roof over their heads, and it’s all being ruined in front of their eyes in this despicable crime committed by Israel,” community organizer Hamada Hamada told Haaretz.

“large forces entered after 2:00 A.M. to the neighborhood, preventing any access to the homes and forcefully removing the residents as well as dozens of activists who were present at the scene, evacuating them while women and children were heard screaming in the background,” Hamada added.

Palestinian officials say some of the threatened structures lie within areas that they should control. The Palestine Liberation Organization issued a statement accusing the Israeli court of aiming “to set a precedent to enable the Israeli occupying forces to demolish numerous Palestinian buildings located in close proximity” to the barrier.

The office of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas released a statement saying that “Israel bears the full responsibility for the dangerous escalation in Sur Baher, which is part of the implementation of the “deal of the century” whose goal is to bury the Palestinian issue.”

According to the statement, Abbas has approached international and Arab officials in order to halt the demolitions.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat said “We will not renounce our lands, and everything that was demolished will be rebuilt.”

“The demolition is an implementation of the Bahrain conference and we have thousands of documents and petitions filed to the International Court of Justice in The Hague against Israel,” he said in reference to the economic peace conference in Bahrain sponsored by the United States that took place in June.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said “The demolition of buildings in Sur Baher by the authorities of the occupation is a despicable crime, which is a direct result of the Bahrain Conference and the warm relationship between Israel and some Arab nations.”

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on Monday, but a statement last week by Israel’s military-run civil administration in the West Bank said enforcement would be pursuant to “operational considerations” and “state policy.”

The International Court of Justice in The Hague issued an advisory opinion in 2004 that building the barrier on occupied territory was “contrary to international law.”

Israel dismissed the non-binding decision as politically motivated and says the barrier played a key role in drastically reducing the number of attacks, which peaked in 2002 and 2003 during the Second Palestinian uprising known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada.

The West Bank separation barrier, which was being built since 2003, was intended to pass through Sur Baher, but its route was changed due to residents’ campaign.Thus Wadi Hummus ended up on the Israeli side of the barrier, although legally it part of the West Bank and under the PA’s authority.

Many buildings were erected in the neighborhood over the last decade or so, most occupied by young couples and families from the village. The buildings set for demolition have some 100 apartments, 20 of which are tenanted and the rest are under construction.

Building permits for the construction were issued by the PA’s planning ministry. However, seven years ago, the Israel Defense Forces Central Command issued an injunction banning construction of buildings within 250 meters of the separation barrier.

Locals say the order was not publicized and they had no knowledge of it, and that in any case, it is the PA that has planning authorization in the area.

CONCENTRATION CAMPS …. HERE AND THERE

Since last week, a media storm has been taking place over Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez use of the term “concentration camps” to refer to the detention camps for immigrant families on the country’s southern border.

We need this language, we need these comparisons to wake us. While some may be offended by the language, the reality it addresses is often far beyond the imagination.

Concentration camps – at the US border and in Gaza

Since last week, a media storm has been taking place over Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez use of the term “concentration camps” to refer to the detention camps for immigrant families on the country’s southern border.

Liz Cheney led the assault against AOC, tweeting:

Please @AOC do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this.

MSNBC’s anchor Chris Hayes also called to moderate the tone:

Last comment on this: “concentration camp” is an extremely charged term and I get why many people are, in good faith, uncomfortable with its application for Godwin’s Law purposes among others. So let’s just call them “detention camps” and focus on what’s happening in them.  

AOC wasn’t introducing this rhetoric herself. She had in fact credited an article from Esquire, published a week earlier (June 13th), titled “An Expert on Concentration Camps Says That’s Exactly What the U.S. Is Running at the Border”. The article cites Andrea Pitzer, author of One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps, who says that “We have what I would call a concentration camp system, and the definition of that in my book is, mass detention of civilians without trial.” 

Several days before that, Jonathan M. Katz had written in the LA Times a piecetitled “Call immigrant detention centers what they really are: concentration camps”.

So this discussion has been going on for quite a while, but AOC brought it to the fore. It has fortunately brought a serious discussion concerning the virtue of language as a means of raising moral associations. Thus the suggestion that AOC is simply being callously anti-semitic is now openly challenged in her defense, both in the Forward as well as The Atlantic.

AOC is calling to attention the appalling situation in these camps. But, she isn’t the first person to make a similar claim.

A few years ago, Israeli Haaretz journalist Amira Hass, said at a talk in Duke University:

Let me be blunt: Gaza is a Huge Concentration Camp.  

At that event, Hass was asked whether that comparison was not taking it “too far”. She answered:

I was deliberately provocative. Usually I don’t use this term. I use “largest detention camp.” I did want to use it now. If you separate the term from the history then it is, it is a camp where people are concentrated. Of course it does not lead to extermination. It does not lead to Auschwitz. But I don’t often hear this remark because I usually don’t use the term “concentration camp.” But it is a huge camp, where people are concentrated and are not able to leave and are not allowed to have people coming in. And I think we also have to disassociate ourselves, to know to learn, to disassociate ourselves from the immediate associations that we have from The Holocaust — so as not to be under the dictatorship of our memory and of our history, The Holocaust, when we use terms. We have the right to shape the terms, the association to the history of Nazism and to adapt them to the content they reflect. I don’t say it’s Auschwitz. If I say it’s Auschwitz, if I said Gulags, it would have been wrong terminology. But it is a camp, a huge camp, where people are concentrated. We have to free also our metaphors from the yoke of the comparisons.

This is a very useful answer for the debate concerning AOC and the border detention camps.

Hass says she was being deliberately provocative – but that’s not a crime.  In fact, it can be a sound moral consideration, to use language which you know is loaded with historical associations – it is precisely that power which wakes people up from their complacency. At the same time, as Hass notes, it is also a question of being able to free our minds from that “yoke of the comparisons” – that is, to be able to make the comparison without it necessarily implying an equation, as for example to Nazis etc.

Gaza has become unlivable. One needs to soak in these terms and repeat them to oneself. Nearly two million people are living in an unlivable concentration camp. They have been herded there already in 1948 (over 70% of Gaza’s residents are refugees), and they are repeatedly targeted for protesting their incarceration – even when they protest it with absolutely no arms, they get shot with lethal ammunition.

We need this language, we need these comparisons to wake us. While some may be offended by the language, the reality it addresses is often far beyond the imagination.  

THE KEY TO END THE NAKBA

These Palestinians still have the keys to their former homes before they were expelled from their land.

On the 71st anniversary of the Nakba, they still yearn to return to their homes.

 

WHY WE CALL IT THE ‘NAKBA’ (CATASTROPHE)

The Nakba explained in 3 minutes

Imagine this: You’ve lived in your hometown for decades, surrounded by your family and friends. But one day, gun-toting militias show up. You flee in terror. Then another family moves into your house–and you are banned from returning. This is the 1948 Nakba, the catastrophe, the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

MUST SEE VIDEO ~~ MAKING LIFE FROM DEATH IN GAZA

“The Israelis throw death at us, and we make life out of death.”

Israel throws death at us and we make life

These Palestinians in Gaza make sculptures and art pieces out of Israel’s weapons.

Majdi Abu Taqiyeh, 40, got the idea of making sculptures out of Israeli bullets when his brother was shot during the Great March of Return demonstrations along Gaza’s eastern boundary.

Israeli snipers have killed more than 200 Palestinians since the demonstrations started in March last year.

“I chose the occupation’s bullets as a medium to work with so they become messages to the world,” Abu Taqiyeh told The Electronic Intifada.

“I wanted to make human figures out of bullets to represent the lives of martyrs who died from those bullets and others who were injured.”

Ahmad Abu Ataya, 47, makes prayer beads, flower pots and canes out of tear gas canisters he collects during demonstrations.

“If this life isn’t ours, it’ll be for our children,” says Abu Ataya. “We go to the boundary fence for our rights so we can live.”

Abu Ataya says his art “is proof of life.”

“The Israelis throw death at us, and we make life out of death.”

SELF DEFENSE FOR THE AGGRESSOR? ONLY IN GAZA

Let’s never forget that the international community, led by the US, Germany and a large part of the “Western community of values” repeatedly reaffirms that Israel has a “right to self-defense”. Given all these decades of Israeli international crimes, it is a mockery to speak of “self-defense.” Never: occupiers and land robbers never have a right to self-defense against a defenseless people they occupy!

Once again, the N Y Times distorts the news, dishonestly making #Gaza the aggressor and Israel the victim.
And the mainstream media is very good at it!

No “Right to Self-Defense” for Occupying Forces

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

It is shameless how German media and politicians repeatedly equate occupiers and occupied. For years, it has been part of the public-law brainwashing to stun German “ordinary citizens” when it comes to coverage of Palestine. Time and again we speak of the “Palestine conflict”, which is to disguise only the decades of illegal international occupation and land grabbing by Israel. So who is responsible for this “conflict”?

It is also shameless to portray the Jews / Israelis as innocent and suffering victims. Using terms such as “radical Islamic” for the Hamas resistance organization or denouncing it as a terrorist organization, the Journal wants to purposefully propagate that the Hamas government is spreading terror, rather than pointing out that it is attempting to turn the people of Gaza into one under the most difficult conditions to help people to have a more bearable life, but without the legal – covered by international law! – Neglect resistance to the illegal occupying power. In fact, the situation is becoming increasingly desperate, also thanks to the Abbas authorities, the West-panned corrupt West Bank government working with the Netanyahu regime, who is doing all sorts of things, incite their Palestinian brothers and sisters in Gaza against Hamas. Therefore, the German media always read about the “moderate” Abbas PA authority – all in harmony with Israeli interests and with the aim of preventing reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, as well as free elections. This will create the climate and ensure that the Gaza Strip is forever uninhabitable by 2020, as the UN has said.

Infame embezzlement by foreign Auschwitz Minister Maas

In this context, the statement of our foreign-Auschwitz-Minister Maas of 6 May 2019, as another one-sided government behavior, which fits more and more to the US-Trump-government. It is outrageous to read that the fired “Hamas and Islamic jihad (PU) rockets” are “vile terror against the civilian population”, which is severely condemned while the bombing of the “Jewish terror state” on the imprisoned civilian population Gaza are neither mentioned, nor equally “sharply” condemned. Maas condemns rocket attacks on Israeli civilians, who do not “solve problems”, but infestiously denies who is responsible for these “problems”. The root of all evil, if you want to beat this embarrassing diplomat.

Maas demands “credible security guarantees” for Israel – and thus security for a rapacious state, which has defied every valid law since the founding of the Palestinian Nakba indigenous people in 1948 and continues to operate this illegal Judaization of Palestine until the final solution thanks to the Trump US policy is getting closer. The Federal Government’s plea to support any initiative designed to prevent the return of deadly struggles and their propaganda of the phrase “two-state solution” that has been preached for decades is not worth the paper on which this sham poop is written. This AA Maas, who obviously has no serious policies, is completely out of place and should go.

He and the German government are closing their eyes to the fact that it was not the Palestinians who were sorry for the “Jewish state” and its citizens, but the merciless Jewish occupiers, who believe that they have a “right” to the land of Palestine because of their religion although it is well known that the Old Testament / Torah is not a land register with which claims can be made. The land belongs to its inhabitants. To make matters worse, the shabby instrumentalization of the Holocaust, the critics of this Besatza state wants to ban its mouth. On the other hand, we resist with all your might!

Stop the new aggression of the “Jewish occupation state” against Gaza!

It must finally be over with the ever new aggression of the “Jewish occupation state” against Gaza and the Palestinian people under his occupation, which are possible only thanks to massive US support and the silent hypocritical community of states, the one-sided position of the predatory “Jewish state” supported. It is this international complicity community that is responsible for the murderous attacks and targeted killings against a virtually defenseless population in Gaza, which has no security bunkers to protect itself from the murderous “Star of David” bombardments of Israeli state terrorists.

Since the foundation of the state in 1948, the international community has done nothing to enable the Palestinians to lead a free life without illegal occupation, let alone to establish an independent Palestinian state. It was and always is only about the Jews, who were always the stronger and successful occupiers thanks to their brutal “Nakba methods” in the struggle for their sole claim to Palestine. Because of the bad conscience of the international community until today, because of their failure during the Holocaust, the Zionist occupiers managed to cement an eternal victim role so magnificently thanks to a powerful lobbying, so that there is hardly any opposition to this Jewish state terrorism.

No alternative to legal resistance to illegal occupation!

The escalation policy of the Netanyahu regime, which finds no counterpart in the almost equal opposition, is trying by all means to make people’s lives in Gaza hell. They do not want to lift the illegal blockade or allow it to rebuild. Netanyahu and his regime, strengthened by the elections, are trying to bomb everything in Gaza. There is no way out of hopelessness for Palestinians to peacefully claim their rights Friday night on the Gaza border fence and demonstrate it with legal resistance to the illegal occupation.

The despair is so great that, even in the certainty of losing their young lives, they end up as martyrs, murdered by hundreds of deploying snipers of the “most moral” Jewish “defensive army”, rather than having to continue this hopeless life without any future prospects. Again, two young Palestinians were murdered during the weekly protest last Friday. Once again, fishing rights were restricted for the Gaza fishermen, who, like the other constant reprisals, such as the arbitrary closure of border crossings, are not receiving any media attention. As Hamas rightly criticizes, Israel has broken its promises. Neither the delivery of money transfers through Qatar, nor the import permit for more goods, infrastructure, health care.

Occupiers and land robbers never have a right to self-defense

Let’s never forget that the international community, led by the US, Germany and a large part of the “Western community of values” repeatedly reaffirms that Israel has a “right to self-defense”. Given all these decades of Israeli international crimes, it is a mockery to speak of “self-defense.” Never: occupiers and land robbers never have a right to self-defense against a defenseless people they occupy!

Note: Where justice becomes wrong, resistance becomes a duty! Because it is perfectly legitimate to defend oneself against unlawful occupation, because one uses the legitimate right of resistance against the illegal occupation.

In addition, the international community should remind the occupying power of the duties that have existed since the Hague Convention, as well as the Geneva Convention. The occupying power has clear obligations to the occupied. A crew may under international law only exist for limited (!) Time. Therefore, the occupying power must ensure that the territory concerned and its population are released into independence. Part of these commitments is to fully meet the basic needs of the population, which the “Jewish State” does not do and makes other countries pay. There must also be no transfer of the population by expelling them or illegally settling Jewish population settlers in the occupied territory.

Boycott the European Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv!

Ignoring the international community, it also suits to “sing and have fun” at the upcoming European Song Contest (ESC) in Tel Aviv in the face of this murderous policy, while the Palestinians suffer and mourn their dead. Any artist participating in this Song Festival should be aware that it supports and whitewashes the illegal occupation of Palestine. In fact, there are more and more decent artists who are aware of this fact and responsibility and support the BDS movement, such as Roger Waters. And there are Swedish, British and other dedicated European artists who will stay away from this ESC. Regrettably, as so often before, German artists are less likely to sing with the occupiers and have fun!

Let us also remember that the Turkish government and President Erdogan criticized the Netanyahu regime’s Gaza attacks and called for action against them. Finally, the Turkish news agency Anadolu was hit in Gaza, which was (targeted?) Shot at.

So it is a particularly sad month of fasting Ramadan in the Gaza concentration camp, literally, which began on Monday. There is not enough money to buy luscious food for dinner after sunset. So let’s remember the Muslim Palestinians in illegally occupied Palestine, we mourn their martyrs with them and keep reminding that there is no right of self-defense for occupiers!

Here is a moving eyewitness account from Gaza by Dr. med. Abed Schokry:

Dr. Abed Schokry is a Palestinian and studied and obtained his doctorate in Germany. After 17 years in Germany, he returned with his family and now lives in Gaza and informed from there his circle of friends.

Gaza on 05/05/2019

Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear friends and dear friends,

Today, on Sunday afternoon, the Gaza Strip was attacked at the same time from the air, from the sea and also with tank shells. And so these attacks inevitably fall victims. Almost all are civilians. Nobody knows how things will go on here and next door. I have just heard that Israeli fighters are bombing many homes throughout Gaza, some of them have not been forewarned, and so is the number of civilians killed. An entire family was murdered, father, mother, 9 months pregnant, a small child and a brother of the woman who was there to visit. Yesterday, a pregnant woman with her 14-month-old daughter came in attacks and lives. Number of dead is now (on Sunday) 17 or 19 and more than 110 injured.

The air strikes did NOT stop, on the contrary they increase, and shells are also fired from the sea and from tanks. So the current situation on Sunday afternoon is NOT reassuring. At the moment, vehicles or tricycles or motorcycles are deliberately attacked. I hear on the radio that a beach café was bombed and burning. But the fire department can not extinguish the fire. There are also dead and injured on the other side.

Gaza on 06/05/2019

The last military aggression between the Gaza Strip and the State of Israel should now have ended today, Monday morning at 4.30 clock. So we spent almost two days and three nights in fear and terror. Many people had to give their lives. Before I forget it, I do not want to offset, but still would like to put the following facts on the table:

  1. According to Israeli figures, about 600 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip during the entire period. According to army spokesman Jonathan Conricus, about 70 percent of the missiles landed in the open field. Most of the remaining projectiles were intercepted by missile defense. According to Israeli data, 295 air strikes and 320 attacks were reportedly committed by the Israeli navy. Overall, that makes about 615 (and the tank attacks, are not counted because I could not find any information about it).
  1. In Gaza, 18 houses were totally destroyed, 10 others were very damaged, hundreds of houses were also damaged, 58 apartments totally destroyed and about 310 apartments have great damage up to glass damage. Then there are shops, schools, universities, courts, police stations, training camps for the security apparatus, etc.
  1. Approximately 160 injured and currently 29 dead (data from the Süddeutsche Zeitung), mostly civilians, including children, and two pregnant women.
  1. For your information: We have no bunkers or shelters for the civilian population in the entire Gaza Strip. If it crashes, we have no place where we could have found shelter.

The whole world is once again behind the State of Israel, what happens to US, it does not matter to this supposedly very moral world, we are fourth-class people. We’ve got used to that, that’s nothing new. On the other hand, we’ve had nothing to lose for a while now. And so is our motto, either a good life for us, or the other should also feel what it is like to be permanently humiliated, if bombs are dropped again and again aimed at civilians and if protests against the unbearable conditions Israeli Snipers also shoot at children, medical helpers and press. Hundreds were targeted during the Friday demonstrations. Imagine only once it would happen at any other border (Ukraine or elsewhere). Would the world also remain silent and allow the sniper free hand to shoot at people protesting against their living conditions?

Gideon Levy, the journalist, wrote an article in the Israeli daily Haaretz entitled, “The Gaza Ghetto Uprising [https://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-the-gaza-ghetto-uprising-1.7197814?utm_term = 20190505-02% 3A14 & utm_campaign = Gideon + Levy & utm_medium = email & writerAlerts = true & utm_source = smartfocus & utm_content = www.haaretz.com% 2Fopinion% 2F1.7197814] “(The Gaza Ghetto Uprising)

Hereby I ask the following question What is coming now ???

We had such a similar scenario around the 25th of March, this time around the 4th / 5th. May around. Will we return to this loop in about 4-6 weeks?Violence and counter violence, that leads to nothing. This definitely does NOT lead to peace. We think, and I think, many Gazans are fed up with prison life. We want nothing other than all people in this world, we want to have a normal life and lead.

Gaza has many, many, many problems. The water supply, the electricity supply, the very high unemployment rate, some very bad health care.Imagine how many people need medical treatment because of the attacks.That does not create a hospital.

The tap water in our apartment smells very bad and is very salty. This water makes the laundry dirtier and not cleaner. You can not wash vegetables or fruit with the water. That is not suitable for anything. You can only get sick of it. Summer is coming and we need electricity, more than 8 hours a day.

The young people urgently need work and above all hope and perspective that tomorrow will be a better day. But all that is missing. What is the alternative, many want to leave Gaza and not even that works or succeeds.Without our own port and airport, hardly anything will change in our location.

The state of Israel makes great theater of it, because it is all about the security of Israel. Because of the story, I can even understand that. BUT we are also people who have the right to a “normal” life. That’s what we want.And the world should finally understand. What do you expect from people who have to live incarcerated, who, like everyone else in the world, only want to live peacefully. The Palestinians are just as human as the Israelis and like everyone else in the world. But the Israelis count more in the world. That’s what I read and hear in the German news. There is apparently no evidence that five, six, seven times more Palestinians are killed than Israelis. And when I say that, I’m accused of not counting the death toll. No, you should not, but you should not treat one group of people worse than the other. And that happens in the messages in the world. We are always the bad guys and the others defend themselves against the bad guys. I wish so much, you should put our glasses on once.

One of my brothers will leave Gaza and got a visa for the United Arab Emirates, he is an electrical engineering engineer and has completed his bachelor’s degree in 2014. He had been there since then and had a job there. He has been out of work for more than a year and hopes to find work elsewhere. There are thousands in Gaza who like my brother. Some then try to go to Turkey and from there, if it works, then to Europe. Some risk their lives.

Just yesterday, the body of a Gazan from Turkey was brought to Gaza via Egypt, others are buried in Turkey.

I intend to leave Gaza in the second half of June and come to Germany for about two months. I already have a host university. And if it works, I hope to spend a month or two months in the Ruhr area and to be able to continue my education as an engineer. That’s my plan. If and when I will succeed, I will tell you and you.

In the hope that our neighbor and the world will finally give us our rights so that they and we can live in peace and quiet, I close for today. Today is the first day of fasting Ramadan. I wish you and you all the best and stay with you soon.

Yours sincerely

Your Abed Schokry

TIME ONCE AGAIN TO CLEANSE THE LAND OF BREAD AND ARABS

… Most significant considering the election results …
*
Jewish mothers used to go into a cleaning frenzie a week or so before the Festival of Passover. All traces of leaven (chametz) had to be removed from the home before the onset of the holiday.
*
Modern folk have determined that dust is not chametz, so there is less madness involved in the cleaning process, but Israel has added a new dimension to the situation; Arabs must be removed as well as the leaven.

CLEANSING THE LAND OF BREAD AND ARABS

My maternal grandmother was a simple Shtetel Jew. She came from a place not much different than the small town portrayed in Fiddler on The Roof.
 *
Traditionally the womenfolk from those areas were uneducated in matters of anything other than home making and child raising, while the menfolk studied their Holy Books for hours on end. Life was simple for them, and they themselves were basically a very simple folk.
 *
I remember my grandmother going through the frenzie of cleaning the house this time of year…. the traditional Passover cleaning. All traces of leaven had to be removed from the home before the start of the Holiday. To her, that process included the removal of any trace of dust or smears on the window panes. The house sparkled when she was finished. Most of our non Jewish neighbours were going through the same process, but simply called it ’spring cleaning’, ridding the house of all unwanted matter, including broken furniture and junk.
 *
I remember asking my grandmother why she was going through such a frenzie…. her answer was simple and to the point…. “If a Jew eats bread during Passover he will die!” That was what she was taught, that’s what she taught us….
 *
In Israel today, things are not much different than life in the Shtetel when it comes to Passover preparations. But today there is a growing number of non observant Jews as well as a growing number of non Jews. This is a threat to the lifestyle of the self imposed Shtetel Jew living here today.
 *
Christian Pilgrims from abroad, as well as local Christians are denied access to their Holy Sites. Where is the uproar against this?
 *
Where is the uproar against the Neanderthal rabbis that have recently called for the expulsion or the genocide of the Palestinians? WHERE??? As in previous years, the Palestinians living on the ‘other side’ of the great wall of apartheid will be sealed in for the duration of the Holiday (8 days), literally making the State of Israel Arabrein for that period of time. Where is the uproar against this? WHERE???
Israel does need a cleansing… a good one; not only of bread during the Holiday season but also of hatred. Both are violations of the Holy Teachings.
