Günter Grass, über den Israelischen Faschisten Terror Staat

April 4, 2012 3 Kommentare

Die Ethnischen Säuberungen, Verbrechen, Missachtung der UN Resolutionen, sind bestens bekannt, u.a. durch Uni Professor Ilan Pappe – Uni Haifa, und durch Evelyn – Galinski, welche ihren verstorbenen Vater zitierte, über den Geschäftemacher „Paolo Pinkel“ – Michel Friedman, die Peinlichkeit in Person.

Deshalb sind die Reaktionen wie immer von Broder, Zentralrat der Juden, mehr wie peinlich. Aktuelle Terror Aktion, der Israel SS von Faschisten, gegen Zivilisten in deren Häusern.

„Schmierentheater“, „Hasspamphlet“, „Verirrung“: Vertreter jüdischer Organisationen und deutsche Politiker reagieren empört auf das Gedicht von Günter Grass zum Konflikt Israels mit Iran. Sie werfen dem Literaturnobelpreisträger vor, antisemitisch zu sein und keine Kenntnis über die politische Situation in Nahost zu haben.

Der Literaturnobelpreisträger Günter Grass hat in einem neuen Gedicht zum Atomkonflikt mit Iran den Staat Israel attackiert. Schon kurz nach der Veröffentlichung entfachte das lyrische Werk eine heftige Antisemitismus-Debatte.

In dem in der Süddeutschen Zeitung veröffentlichten Gedicht „Was gesagt werden muss“ hält Grass Israel vor, dass dieses durch einen Erstschlag das gesamte iranische Volk auslöschen könnte, nur weil vermutet werde, dass Teheran eine Atombombe baue. Dabei habe Israel selbst ein wachsendes nukleares Potential, das keiner Prüfung zugänglich sei. Zudem kritisierte Grass die deutsche Außenpolitik, die Israel mit U-Boot-Lieferungen unterstütze. Er schweige nicht mehr, weil er der „Heuchelei des Westens“ aus SZ

Interview mit einer aufrechten Frau: Evelyn Hecht-Galinski

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski
„Du darfst das sagen“
Interview in der Badischen Zeitung vom 1. September 2007 mit Evelyn Hecht-Galinski über jüdische Kultur in Deutschland, den Einfluss der Israel-Lobby und ihren Vater, den ersten Zentralratsvorsitzenden – Auszüge*

Hecht-Galinski: Dass die ursprüngliche deutsch-jüdische Kultur von den Nazis ausgerottet wurde, muss ich nicht erwähnen. Heute haben wir zwar eine Inflation jüdischer Kulturtage, aber die meisten sind eigentlich israelische Tage und werden von der Lobby und dem Zentralrat dazu benutzt, aktuelle Israelpolitik zu verkaufen. Wir als „Jüdische Stimme“ gründen uns jetzt als Verein, um mitreden zu können. Wir wollen nicht missbraucht werden als Juden für eine Politik, die wir für menschenrechtswidrig halten.

Hecht-Galinski: … da wird schon den Jugendlichen der zionistische Gedanke vermittelt, dass das Heil im Staate Israel liegt und sie doch besser alle nach Israel gehen sollten. Das finde ich sehr bedenklich…

BZ: Sie selbst sind doch eine Gegenstimme, Sie bezeichnen sich als Antizionistin.
Hecht-Galinski: Ja, aber das Problem ist, dass Israelkritiker und Zentralratskritiker diffamiert werden. Ich bin zum Beispiel eine „voller Selbsthass steckende Jüdin“

BZ: So etwas bekommen Sie zu hören?
Hecht-Galinski: Sicher. Auch die Holocaust-Opfer werden missbraucht für diese Politik. Wobei nicht wenige von ihnen aus Israel nach Deutschland kommen, um hier einen besseren Lebensabend zu verbringen, als in diesem militärisch hochgerüsteten Israel, das jeden Cent für die Rüstung ausgibt.

BZ: Dass Sie in der Minderheit sind, würden Sie aber nicht bestreiten?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein, das ist wahr. Aber inzwischen schließen wir uns in ganz Europa zusammen und auch in den Vereinigten Staaten. „Europäische und amerikanische Juden für einen gerechten Frieden.“ Viele haben mal klein angefangen.

BZ: Verpflichtet nicht das Jahrhundertverbrechen, das im deutschen Namen vor siebzig Jahren an den Juden verübt wurde, jede Bundesregierung zu einer wohlmeinenden Haltung gegenüber Israel?
Hecht Galinski: Nein, das kritisieren und dagegen protestieren wir. Dass man gute Beziehungen pflegt, ist ja in Ordnung. Aber das darf nicht zur Billigung einer Politik führen, die Menschenrechte mit Füßen tritt. Das wäre eine Schande für Deutschland.

BZ: Aber das Existenzrecht Israels steht für Sie nicht zur Debatte?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein. Wohl aber das Existenzrecht des Staates, der jetzt so in diesen Grenzen existiert.

BZ: Denkt der Zentralrat eigentlich demokratisch?
Hecht-Galinski: Nicht die Spur. Er hat es etwa geschafft, jegliche Kritik als Antisemitismus zu diffamieren. Damit hat er selbst Nachkriegsgenerationen so eingeschüchtert, dass sie den Mund nicht mehr aufmachen. Meine Freunde sagen immer: Ja, du darfst das sagen, aber wir nicht. Das Schlimmste in Deutschland ist ja, als Antisemit zu gelten.

BZ: Die Antisemitismuskeule wird zu früh herausgeholt? Dann hätte Martin Walser ja recht.
Hecht-Galinski (lacht): Ja, obwohl ich kein Freund von Herrn Walser bin — denn er ist nicht die richtige Person, so etwas anzuprangern, und er hat es am falschen Ort getan, in der Paulskirche — , aber da hat er mal etwas Richtiges gesagt.

BZ: Prägt der Zentralrat die Wahrnehmung der jüdischen Kultur in Deutschland?
Hecht-Galinski: Leider ja. Und die israelische Botschaft prägt mit, samt Organisationen wie „Honestly Concerned“ , „I like Israel“ und andere.

BZ: Fürchten Sie nicht, Antisemiten und Rechtsradikalen in Deutschland als Kronzeugin zu dienen?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein, die wird es immer geben. Was da in Ostdeutschland vorgeht, dagegen nützen nicht immer mehr Millionen für die Bildung sondern nur eine harte Polizeihand. Und viele Leute wird man auch nicht ändern können, egal was der Zentralrat sagt oder was ich äußere. Im Gegenteil, das ist ja die Politik des Zentralrats, gegen die wir uns wehren, dass wir alle schweigen sollen mit dem Argument, immer wenn Ihr den Mund aufmacht, spielt Ihr den Antisemiten in die Hände. Ich sehe dagegen Israels Politik den Antisemitismus stärken.

BZ: Wenn Sie sich die Zentralratschefs so anschauen, Galinski, Lewin, Nachmann, Bubis, Spiegel oder jetzt Frau Knobloch, wer überzeugt Sie da am meisten?
Hecht-Galinski: Ehrlich gesagt keiner. Mein Vater hatte da noch am ehesten originelle Motive. Er kam aus dem KZ und nahm sich vor, wieder jüdisches Leben in Deutschland aufzubauen. Er hat auch nie auf gepackten Koffern gelebt. Und ich wuchs deshalb völlig integriert auf. Meine Mutter wollte immer nach Amerika auswandern, mein Vater nur sehr ungern. Dann kam ich glücklicherweise zwei Monate zu früh zur Welt, damit war der Fall erledigt und mein Vater konnte seine Arbeit hier weitermachen.

BZ: Sie wären nicht gern Amerikanerin geworden?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein, heute erst recht nicht.

BZ: Allerdings ist jüdische Kultur in New York, Boston oder Chicago viel präsenter, selbstverständlicher und selbstbewusster als in Deutschland.
Hecht-Galinski: Das schon. Allerdings hatte ich Pech mit meiner amerikanischen Gastfamilie in New York, in der ich als Jugendliche war. Da wurde von morgens bis abends nur über Auschwitz gesprochen. Es war die Hölle. Ich habe es nicht mehr ertragen.

BZ: Stört es Sie eigentlich, wenn man Sie als Nestbeschmutzerin bezeichnet?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein, damit kann ich wunderbar leben, weil es nicht stimmt.

BZ: Und fühlen Sie sich manchmal bedroht?
Hecht-Galinski: Nein, ich werde auch weiter öffentlich auftreten. Ich fühle mich ganz normal und kein bisschen verfolgt. Das hat auch mit meiner Herkunft zu tun. Mein Vater war zwar im KZ, aber ich bin danach ganz „normal“ erzogen worden, wir hatten ein offenes Haus und auch immer nichtjüdische Freunde und Besucher.

BZ: Wann waren Sie zuletzt in einer Synagoge?
Hecht-Galinski: Schätzungsweise 1992.

BZ: Was bleibt vom Jüdischsein, wenn man nicht religiös ist? Eine Weltanschauung?
Hecht-Galinski: Die Abstammung. Und eine Wertegemeinschaft, wenn auch eine zerstrittene.

*Evelyn Hecht-Galinski, geboren 1949 in Berlin, ist Tochter des ersten Vorsitzenden des Zentralrats der Juden in Deutschland, Heinz Galinski (1912— 1992). Sie lebt mit ihrem Ehemann in Malsburg -Marzell. Das vollständige Interview ist im Palästina Portal wiedergegeben.

Steinberg Recherge

Der Zentral Rat der Juden: «Sprachrohr der israelischen Propaganda-Maschinerie»

«Sprachrohr der israelischen Propaganda-Maschinerie»
Hecht-Galinski wirft Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland Unterdrückung von Kritik vor

Deutschlandfunk: Evelyn Hecht-Galinski hat scharfe Kritik am Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland geäussert. Es sei für sie unerträglich, dass sich der Zentralrat als «Sprachrohr der israelischen Regierung in Deutschland» verstehe, sagte die Tochter des ehemaligen Zentralratspräsidenten Heinz Galinski. Jegliche Kritik an der israelischen Politik werde als Antisemitismus verurteilt, «und dadurch ist ja schon fast jeder mundtot gemacht worden».
Die Kritik von Entwicklungsministerin Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul daran, dass Israel in den letzten Kriegstagen Streubomben eingesetzt hat, erzürnt den Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland. Die Ministerin hat eine Untersuchung der Uno gefordert. Zentralratspräsidentin Charlotte Knobloch wirft ihr jetzt vor, Zitat: «Diese Leute unterstützen die Antistimmung gegen Juden in Deutschland.»
Am Telefon begrüsse ich jetzt Evelyn Hecht-Galinski. Sie ist die Tochter des früheren Präsidenten des Zentralrats der Juden und Mitglied der Organisation «Europäische Juden für einen gerechten Frieden».
Der Zentralrat der Juden hat ja die Kritik von Ministerin Wieczorek-Zeul an dem Einsatz von Streubomben scharf zurückgewiesen, weil sie einseitig sei. Sie wiederum kritisieren deswegen den Zentralrat. Warum?
Evelyn Hecht-Galinski: Weil es für mich besonders unerträglich ist und auch für viele meiner jüdischen Mitstreiter, dass sich der Zentralrat zum wiederholten Male als Sprachrohr der israelischen Regierung in Deutschland versteht, anstatt sich um die sozialen Belange der Gemeindemitglieder in den jüdischen Gemeinden in Deutschland zu kümmern. Das ist die eigentliche Aufgabe. Ich möchte nicht von einem Zentralrat vertreten werden, der nur die israelische Politik vertritt. Jetzt kommen heute wieder in den Zeitungen die Antisemitismusvorwürfe von Frau Knobloch und Herrn Korn. Nicht diejenigen, die Israels Politik kritisieren, fördern den Antisemitismus, sondern diejenigen, die schweigen und damit zulassen, dass das Bild von hässlichen Israeli und inzwischen auch von hässlichen Juden, was ja nicht gleich ist, weil Jude ja nicht gleich Israeli, das muss einmal ganz scharf getrennt werden, das wird leider vom Zentralrat alles kaputtgemacht.

Das war Evelyn Hecht-Galinski, Tochter des früheren Präsidenten und Mitglied der Organisation «Europäische Juden für einen gerechten Frieden». Frau Hecht-Galinski, besten Dank und auf Wiederhören.•

Die Regierung des radikal-jüdischen Staates gehört vor das Haager Kriegstribunal
31.12.2008 — Evelyn Hecht-Galinski, Tochter des ehemaligen Präsidenten des Zentralrats der Juden in Deutschland, Heinz Galinski, protestiert am 29.12.2008 mit ihrer Stellungnahme “Aktion ‘gegossenes Blei’ – Aktion ‘vergossenes Blut’” gegen Israels Militäroperation ‘Gegossenes Blei’ im Gaza-Streifen (arendt-art.de)

<p>Evelyn Hecht-Galinski skizziert darin zunächst die Vorgeschichte: “Die Hamas, die klare Gewinnerin aus den palästinensischen Parlamentswahlen im Januar 2006, sollte, weil es den USA und Israel nicht genehm war, mit der aufgerüsteten Fatah ihres Sieges beraubt werden. Als dies misslang und die Hamas die alleinige Kontrolle im Juli 2007 über Gaza übernahm, schlossen Israel und Ägypten daraufhin die Grenzen zum Gazastreifen. Im September 2007 erklärte Israel den Gazastreifen zum feindlichen Gebiet.” Evelyn Hecht-Galinski schildert dann, wie Israel unter Verletzung von Waffenstillstandsvereinbarungen immer wieder brutal gegen die palästinensische Bevölkerung vorging.</p><br /><br />
<p>Bezogen auf die militärische Operation ‘Gegossenes Blei’ formuliert sie: “Die Mehrheit des jüdischen Staates befindet sich im Blutrausch und ergötzt sich an den ‘Abbombardierungen’ der Ziele im Gazastreifen, die schon seit Monaten vorbereitet worden sind. Die schlimmste Aktion seit über 40 Jahren, die Israel über die Palästinenser bringt, darf nicht ungesühnt bleiben. […] Der kommende Präsident Obama ließ aus Hawaii verlauten, dass […] er sich […] nicht äußern möchte. […] “Über 300 Tote allein in 48 Stunden. Und über 1000 Verletzte, von denen ein Großteil an ihren schweren Schrapnell-Verletzungen sterben wird. […] Israel […] will seine Bodentruppen erst schicken, wenn Gaza abbombardiert und in Schutt und Asche liegt. Die Hamas als ungleicher und viel schwächerer Gegner soll als Kompensation für das Fiasko des letzten Libanon-Krieges gegen die besser gerüstete Hisbollah herhalten, ohne Rücksicht auf die schutzlosen Menschen im Gazastreifen.”</p><br /><br />
<p>Evelyn Hecht-Galinski schließt mit dem Appell: “Nicht die gewählte Hamas-Regierung, sondern die brutalen Besatzer, nämlich die Regierung eines radikal-jüdischen Staates gehören vor das Haager Kriegstribunal. Mein Aufschrei über diese Schande soll alle demokratischen deutschen Bürger und Bürgerinnen wachrütteln und zum Protest, wie auch immer ermutigen.”<br /><br /><br />

Today’s News, January 10-11, 2009 .

Israel no longer has exclusivity rights on the Holocaust. Israelis and their supporters around the world must now share the Holocaust with the people of Gaza. The Gaza Holocaust is called the “Nakba” (Arabic for “the catastrophe”) by the people of Gaza.

Holocaust in Europe (left, Auschwitz) is now joined by Holocaust (”Nakba”) in Gaza. Israeli censors and cyber-hackers are attempting to censor the photo (right) of a dead Gazan child. This photo must be sent to the 390 House members who overwhelmingly voted for Israel’s genocide in Gaza by supporting H. Res. 34. Five House members had the guts to flip off AIPAC and Israel’s “dual loyalists” in Congress. The five who voted “no” to Israel are Nick Rahall (D-WV), Ron Paul (R-TX), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Gwen Moore (D-WI), and Maxine Waters (D-CA).

The photos that Israel does not want to be seen by the people of the world.

Bundesregierung
Außenpolitik? Nein, danke

Die außenpolitische Bilanz der Großen Koalition ist miserabel. Im Ausland wird die internationale Enthaltsamkeit Berlins besorgt registriert. Von Christoph Bertram
……………………………………………
Außenminister Steinmeier könnte sich schon von Amts wegen nicht aus der Außenpolitik empfehlen. Aber ein eigenes internationales Profil hat er in seinen vier AA-Jahren nicht gefunden. Problembewusst und präsent war er immer, gewiss; alles, was der internationale Terminkalender vorgab, hat er abgearbeitet. Dennoch hat er keinen Bereich zu seinem eigenen gemacht.

……………………….

Außenpolitik? Nein, danke

Draußen jedoch wird die internationale Enthaltsamkeit Berlins besorgt vermerkt. Wisst ihr Deutschen denn nicht, wird da gefragt, wie sehr es auf euch ankommt, wie groß euer internationales Potenzial ist? Leider muss man darauf die Antwort geben: Die deutsche Regierung will es erst gar nicht auf die Probe stellen. Das wirtschaftliche und politische Schwergewicht Europas nimmt eine außenpolitische Auszeit und fühlt sich auch noch wohl dabei.

Gerhard Schröder suchte für die Bundesrepublik mehr internationale Mitsprache, schadete dem allerdings durch die Ruppigkeit seines Auftretens. Joschka Fischer wollte die Integration Europas vorantreiben und im Nahen Osten die dürftigen Friedenschancen verstärken, hatte aber mehr Gefallen an der Darstellung als an der Durchsetzung deutscher Außenpolitik.
…………………..

Was Kanzlerin und Außenminister allerdings bevorsteht, ist auch nicht angenehm: Ihre Unterlassensfehler muss die nächste Bundesregierung, wer immer sie stellt, ausbaden. Und das heißt: wahrscheinlich sie selber.

Deutschland schürt den Krieg in Nahost

Sämtliche Menschenrechts Verletzungen, Mißachtung der UN Resolution und des Völkerrechts, Errichtung von KZ durch Israel, Ethnische Säuberungen und gezielte Morde von Freiehites Kämpfern, welche zurück auf ihre Grundstücke wollen, das ist die Politik der Bundesregierung

Deutsch-Israelische Parlamentariergruppe

Die Stille im Deutschen Bundestag deckt Völkerrechtsverbrechen

Israels Politik der ‚kleinen Schritte‘ mit weiteren Ausweitungen von neuen Siedlungen auf palästinensischem Gebiet stellt ein weiteres völkerrechtliches Verbrechen dar.

Auf der einen Seite wird von der „Zwei-Staaten-Lösung“ gesprochen, während Israel hinterrücks und heimtückisch eben diese Politik hintertreibt – und auf eine noch weiter gehende Besetzung von fremdem Territorium nicht verzichtet, ja diese widerrechtliche Besetzung auch noch offen verkündet.

Gleichzeitig werden Proteste gegen die völkerrechtlichen Verbrechen Israels in Deutschland durch die Lobby-Arbeit der Deutsch-Israelischen Parlamentariergruppe hintertrieben, so als hätten diese Parlamentarier von ihren Wählern einen diesbezüglichen Auftrag erhalten. Dem jedoch ist nicht so, die verbrecherische Begünstigung jeglichen Unrechts durch Israel wird wieder und wieder mit dem Totschlagsargument angeblich 6 Millionen Holocaustopfer gerechtfertigt – wobei die Zahl selbst aus jüdischen Kreisen längst mehr als nur in Frage gestellt wurde.

Hier läßt sich die planmäßige Irreführung deutscher Bevölkerung zum völkerrechtswidrigen Vorgehen Israels als System erkennen. Deutsche Parlamentarier mißbrauchen das Vertrauen, das ihnen durch das Mandat verliehen wurde – gewählt oder nicht gewählt, sondern an die Macht gebracht durch Partei-Listenmandate – und laden so neue Schuld für eine Bevölkerung Deutschlands auf sich, in dem ein Volk seines Territoriums beraubt werden soll. So wie sich Israel dazu äußert: „Es könne zwar Probleme geben, aber man werde nicht auf die Besetzung neuer, fremder Territorien verzichten.“

Hier wird ganz eindeutig seitens eines fremden Volkes Einfluß auf die Politik eines anderen Landes ausgeübt, werden deutsche Parlamentarier für die Kolonialinteressen eines kriegerisch-expansiven Staates Israel mißbraucht – und die Bevölkerung Deutschlands, wie so oft, heimtückisch getäuscht und mißbraucht.

Das weltweit agierende Israelische Netzwerk besteht nicht nur in Form der Deutsch-Israelischen Parlamentariergruppe – es beherrscht auch maßgeblich die gesamte US-Außenpolitik, so daß auch seitens der US-Besatzungspolitik in Deutschland keinerlei freie Entscheidung mehr zugelassen wird. Deutsche Soldaten werden gezwungen, gegen Staaten des arabischen Raums und an und für sich friedlicher moslemischer Religion zu kämpfen – so während Israels Krieg gegen den Libanon – oder an US-Seite in Afghanistan.

They Shoot the Youth, Don’t They?
By Johnny Barber – Gaza


April 3, 2012 – On March 30, 1976, the Palestinian people declared a general strike and demonstrated against the Israeli confiscation of thousands of acres of land in the Galilee. The Israeli’s responded with violence, killing six unarmed Palestinian demonstrators and injuring hundreds. Every year Land Day is commemorated in Palestine in remembrance of those who would rise up to protect their land. On this Land Day, I was at Erez Crossing. Several hundred youth had managed to find their way around the Hamas policemen blocking the roads leading to Erez. At the crossing, they moved to within two hundred yards of the Israeli gate…

‘Prawer Plan’ to uproot Bedouins shows folly of the phrase ‘democratic Israel’
Alex Kane


April 3, 2012 – Peter Beinart’s pro-settlement boycott article in the New York Times has rightly been critiqued from the left for ignoring the fact that „Israel is only a ‚genuine democracy’ for its Jewish citizens,“ as Adam Horowitz put it. A close look at the Israeli government’s Prawer Plan, which calls for the forced relocation of tens of thousands of citizens of Israel, further shows why the notion of a „democratic Israel“ is a farce. Beinart’s NYT Op-Ed constantly mentions „democratic Israel,“ or variations on the phrase, to distinguish between the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and „Israel proper.“ But how do the Bedouin citizens of Israel targeted for forced relocation fit into this „democratic Israel“? The answer is they don’t…

But, Palestine still holds observer status in the UN, and so the ICC cannot at this time investigate allegations of war crimes committed on Palestinian territory, the prosecutor said….

Video: Israeli Soldiers Violently Evict Hebron House
Popular Struggle Coordination Committee


April 3, 2012 -While Israeli PM and his ministers scramble to prevent the eviction of a Palestinian-owned house in Hebron that was taken over by Jewish settlers last week, a video documenting the violent eviction of Palestinian activists from a nearby house, which is owned by the Hebron municipality, two days ago, shows extensive use of force. The eviction, which took place on Sunday in the Old City of Hebron, was carried out by a large force of Israeli Border Police officers. During the eviction, the force heavily employed the use of tear-gas and a foul smelling liquid called „The Skunk“. Additionally dozens were physically assaulted, with at least five of the activists ending up at the hospital. The activists, members of the local group „Youth Against Settlements“, intended to renovate and take residence in the house in order to prevent it from being taken over by Israeli settlers….

Erdogan’s Turkey: A rule more ruthless

A decade on, the AKP government’s hold on power is ever more authoritarian

Riot police stand guard in front of an election campaign office, Turkey©Reuters

His pictures and posters are these days almost as ubiquitous as those of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founding father of the modern Turkish nation. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has come to tower over the country’s political landscape. Elected last June for the third time since 2002 and with a still rising share of the vote, he is a prime minister preternaturally buoyed by the strength of his rapport with the Anatolian heartland.

In Mr Erdogan’s decade, Turkey has re-emerged as a regional power. Its economy has grown at near-Chinese speed, spreading wealth and healthcare, schools and roads, while a new breed of “Anatolian tiger” entrepreneurs has risen up against the incumbent handful of business conglomerates. The ruling Justice and Development party (AKP), refined from the debris of two banned Islamist parties into a Muslim version of Christian democracy, has sidelined the secular elites that had ruled as of right the republic created by Ataturk.

Mr Erdogan devoted his first term to overdue political reform and strengthening civil and minority rights. He used his popularity to shove Turkey’s mighty generals offstage during a stormy second term. Now, he faces no rival to his power – and his tolerance of any challenge to it is shrinking.

Along with a gathering air of authoritarianism, many detect the first whiff of hubris. Prosecutions of journalists, violations of due process in cases against political foes and the ramming through of contentious legislation all attest to the trend. If the constitutional revolution started by the AKP – after decades of managed democracy by the army and the Kemalist establishment – is going backwards, it is a development that could have big implications for a country that has an increasing clout on the world stage.

While there is no single reason for the shift, Mr Erdogan’s fiery temperament is clearly a factor. Although some observers believe his outbursts are calculated, one Istanbul commentator says he has “eagerly embraced the solitude of power”. Hakan Altinay, chairman of the Open Society Foundation in Istanbul, a branch of George Soros’s advocacy organisation, says “the only feedback he’s interested in is acclaim and loyalty”. Even an AKP loyalist MP acknowledges the problem: “He listens but he thinks he knows everything already and that ‘whatever I decide, works’.”

The prime minister’s outmanoeuvring of the military – more than one in 10 generals are now behind bars for alleged plots against his government – has removed a check on executive power, however undemocratic. More damagingly, a paralysis in negotiations on accession to the European Union has shut down a formidable engine of democratic renewal.

Last year, Turkey leapfrogged Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the number of cases brought against it at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, its 159 cases outstripping Russia’s 121. In the absence of Brussels, Strasbourg has some leverage. This month, the journalists Nedim Sener and Ahmet Sik, in pre-trial detention for more than a year for writings on the influence inside the Turkish state of the shadowy Islamist movement inspired by Fetullah Gulen, a US-based imam, were released – only days before the court was due to hear their complaint.

That still leaves 104 journalists in jail, 69 of them from the Kurdish minority and more than Iran (42) and China (27) combined. The old joke about committing journalism has real bite in Turkey, especially after Mr Erdogan himself, speaking last April in Strasbourg of all places, likened Mr Sik’s then unpublished book on the Gulenists to a bomb.

Gangster Banks Keep Winning Public Business. Why?

POSTED: March 22, 9:40 AM ET

A man walks in front of the JP Morgan Chase building in New York.
Chris Hondros/Getty Images

A friend of mine sent this article from Bloomberg, along with the simple comment: „Perfect.“ What’s perfect? That the banks that have been caught repeatedly ripping off communities and munipalities — banks that have paid hefty settlements for rigging bids, bribery and other sordid misdeeds — keep winning the most public business. Apparently, our public officials aren’t concerned about whom they hire to serve as the people’s investment bankers.

From the piece, entitled „JPMorgan Claims No. 1 for Government Debt After Jefferson County“:

JPMorgan, which emerged from the worst financial crisis since the 1930s as the most profitable U.S. bank, has parlayed crisis-era loans to cities and states and a willingness to outbid other firms in local government bond auctions into becoming the top underwriter of municipal debt last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It was the first time the firm held that rank.

The turnaround was a milestone for JPMorgan’s municipal- bond department, which has been marred by its involvement in two of the biggest scandals in the history of U.S. public finance: a so-called pay-to-play scheme in Jefferson County, Alabama, that contributed to the biggest-ever U.S. municipal bankruptcy, and a federal probe that uncovered bid rigging of municipal-bond investment products.

This story dovetails with the larger story I have out in the magazine now about Bank of America, another Too-Big-To-Fail behemoth that placed a very close second in the area of municipal bond business, according to the Bloomberg survey. Chase managed $35.7 billion in long-term bond sales, while BOA/Merrill Lynch came in at about $200 million less.

Why does this matter? Because both banks, Chase and Bank of America, have been repeatedly tied to scandals involving the issuance of public debt. Bank of America paid a $137 million settlement for rigging the bids of bond issues in numerous communities (including places as far away as Guam), while Chase also paid a big settlement of $211 million last year for more or less exactly similar offenses involving localities in 25 different states.

Chase also entered into a $722 million settlement with the government over its behavior in Jefferson County, Alabama, where the bank essentially bribed local officials to take on onerous swap deals that left the county in debt until the next millenium.

The way may be opening for increased U.S.-Cuban ties. The United States has removed all restrictions on Cuban-American travel from the U.S. to Cuba and all limitations on Cuban-American remittances to families on the island. Coming at a time when the Cuban government is encouraging the establishment of small private enterprises, this opens the way for importantly increased ties between the two communities-as one observer put it: “for an inflow of capital from the U.S. to Cuba.”

There is, however, the proverbial “fly in the ointment” and that is the case of Alan Gross, arrested on December 3 of 2009 and since then representing a major obstacle to improved relations–along with the case of the Cuban Five on the other side (but more on that later).

Who is Alan Gross?

Alan Gross is a 61 year-old Jewish U.S. citizen from Potomac, Maryland who is an employee of Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI), a subcontractor of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) which itself is a dependency of the State Department. In December 2009, when Gross was about to leave Cuba with a simple tourist visa–after his fifth visit that year–Cuban state security authorities detained him at the International Airport in Havana. An investigation discovered links between him and the internal opposition to the Cuban government. Gross had been distributing among the opposition portable computers and satellite telephones as part of the State Department program for “promoting democracy in Cuba.” [1]

A long-distance communications technology expert, Gross has great experience in the field. He has worked in more than 50 nations and set up satellite communications systems during the military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan to circumvent channels controlled by local authorities. [2]
Possession of a satellite phone is strictly forbidden in Cuba for national security reasons and telecommunications are a state monopoly with competition forbidden. [3]

Aid for the Cuban Jewish Community?

The State Department, demanding the release of the detainee declared, “Gross works for international development and traveled to Cuba to assist the members of the Jewish community in Havana to connect with other Jewish communities in the world.” According to Washington, Gross’ activities were legitimate and did not violate Cuban legislation.[4]

In October 2010, during the annual session of the UN General Assembly, Arturo Valenzuela, then assistant secretary of state for inter-American affairs, met with Bruno Rodríguez, Cuban minister for foreign affairs, to discuss Gross. This was the most important diplomatic meeting between representatives from both nations since the beginning of Obama’s era. [5]

Alan Gross’ family also said that his frequent trips to the island were to allow the Jewish community in Havana to gain access to the Internet and to communicate with Jews all over the world.[6] His lawyer, Peter J. Kahn, endorsed their words, “His work in Cuba had nothing to do with politics; it was simply aimed at helping the small, peaceful, non-dissident Jewish community in the country. [7]

Gross doubtless had contact with some members of the Jewish community in Cuba. Leaders of the Jewish community in Havana, however, contradict the official U.S. version of his relationship. In fact, leaders of the community affirm they did not know Alan Gross, and had never met with him despite his five visits to Cuba in 2009. Adela Dworin, president of the Beth Shalom Temple, rejected Washington’s statements. “It’s lamentable […]. The saddest part is that they tried to involve the Jewish community in Cuba which has nothing to do with this.”

Mayra Levy, speaker of the Sephardic Hebraic Center, declared she didn’t know who Gross was and added he had never been to her institution. The Associated Press said “the leaders of the Jewish community in Cuba denied the American contractor Alan Gross […] had collaborated with them.” [8] In like manner, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported that “the main Jewish groups in Cuba had denied having any contracts with Alan Gross or any knowledge of his project.” [9]

Reverend Oden Mariachal, secretary of the Consejo de Iglesias de Cuba (CIC) [Cuban Council of Churches] which includes the [non-Catholic] Christian religious institutions and the Jewish community in Cuba, confirmed this position at a meeting with Peter Brennan, State Department coordinator for Cuban Affairs. On the occasion of the General Assembly of Churches of Christ in the U.S., held in Washington in 2010, the religious leader rejected Gross’ allegations. “What we made clear is what the Cuban Jewish Community, a member of the Cuban Council of Churches, told us, ‘We never had a relationship with that gentleman; he never brought us any equipment.’ They denied any kind of relationship with Alan Gross.”[10]

In fact, the small Cuban Jewish community, far from isolated, is perfectly integrated in society and has excellent relations with the political authorities in the Island. Fidel Castro, although very critical of Israeli policy in the occupied territories, declared to American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg that in history “no one has been as slandered as the Jews. They were exiled from their land, persecuted and mistreated everywhere in the world. The Jews had a more difficult existence than ours. Nothing can compare to the Holocaust,” he said. [11]

Cuban President Raúl Castro attended the religious ceremony for Hanukkah-the Festival of Lights–at the Shalom Synagogue in Havana, in December 2010. The visit was broadcast live on Cuban TV and published in the front page of newspaper Granma. He took the opportunity to greet “the Cuban Jewish community and the fabulous history of the Hebrew people.” [12]

Moreover, the Cuban Jewish community has all the technological facilities needed to communicate with the rest of the world, thanks to the assistance of other international Jewish entities such as the B’nai Brith and the Cuban Jewish Relief Project, the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), the World ORT, the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) or the United Jewish Committee (UJC); all of it endorsed by the Cuban authorities. [13]

Arturo López-Levy, B’nai Brith secretary for the Cuban Jewish community between 1999 and 2001, and today a professor at Denver University, is also skeptical about the U.S. version of the Gross case. On the subject, he stated, “Gross was not arrested for being Jewish or for his alleged activities of technological aid to the Cuban Jewish community which already had an informatics lab, electronic mail and Internet access before he got to Havana. [The Jews in Cuba] do not gather at a synagogue to conspire with the political opposition because this would jeopardize their cooperation with the government which is needed for their activities: the emigration to Israel program, the Right by Birth project–through which young Cuban Jews travel to Israel every year–or to deal with humanitarian aid. To protect the most important they detach themselves as much as possible from the U.S. programs of political interference on Cuban internal affairs. Gross travelled to Cuba not to work with any Jewish organization but for USAID.” [14]

Wayne S. Smith, chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Cuba from 1979 to 1982 and director of Cuba Program of the Center for International Policy in Washington, said that “in other words, Gross was involved in a program whose intentions were clearly hostile to Cuba, because its objective is nothing less than regime change.” [15]

Illegal Activities According to Cuban Authorities

Cuban authorities suspected Gross of espionage and internal subversion activities. [16]Ricardo Alarcon, president of the Cuban Parliament, declared he had violated the country’s legislation. “He violated Cuban laws, national sovereignty, and committed crimes that in the U.S. are most severely punished.”[17]
Gross, a USAID employee was providing sophisticated communications equipment. The distribution and use of satellite phones is regulated in Cuba and it is forbidden to import them without authorization. On the other hand, Article 11 of Cuban Law 88 reads that, “He who, in order to perform the acts described in this Law, directly or through a third party, receives, distributes or takes part in the distribution of financial means, material or of other kind, from the Government of the United States of America, its agencies, dependencies, representatives, officials, or from private entities is liable to prison terms from 3 to 8 years.” [18]

This severity is not unique to Cuban legislation. U.S. law prescribes similar penalties for this type of crime. The Foreign Agents Registration Act prescribes that any un-registered agent “who requests, collects, supplies or spends contributions, loans, money or any valuable object in his own interest” may be liable to a sentence of five years in prison and a fine of 10,000 dollars. [19]

French legislation also punishes this type of action. According to Article 411-8 of the Penal Code, “the act of exercising on behalf of a foreign power, a foreign company or organization or company or organization under the control of a foreign agent, any act aimed at supplying devices, information, procedures, objects, documents, informatics data or files whose exploitation, spreading, or gathering can by nature attempt against the fundamental interests of the nation is punishable with ten years of imprisonment and a fine of 150,000 Euros.”[20]

On February 4, 2011, the prosecutor of the Republic of Cuba formally accused Alan Gross of “acts against the integrity and independence of the nation,” and demanded a jail sentence of 20 years. On March 12, 2011 Gross was finally sentenced to 15 years imprisonment after his trial.[21] The lawyer for the defense, Peter J. Kahn, expressed his regret that his client was “caught in the middle of a long political dispute between Cuba and the United States.”  [22]
The New York Times remembers that Gross “was arrested last December during a trip to Cuba as part of a semi-clandestine USAID program, a service of foreign aid of the State Department destined to undermine the Cuban Government,” The New York paper also indicated that “U.S. authorities have admitted that Mr. Gross entered Cuba without the appropriate visa and have said he distributed satellite telephones to religious groups. [23]

Since 1992 and the adoption of the Torricelli Act, the U.S. openly admits its objective towards Cuba is “regime change” and one of the pillars of this policy is to organize, finance and equip an internal opposition. [24] USAID, which is in charge of the implementation of the plan, admits that, as part of this program, it finances the Cuban opposition. According to the Agency for the 2009 fiscal year the amount destined for aid to Cuban dissidents was of 15.62 million dollars. Since 1996 a total of 140 million dollars have been dedicated to the program aimed at overthrowing the Cuban government. “The largest part of this figure is for individuals inside Cuba. Our objective is to maximize the amount of the support that benefits the Cubans in the Island.”[25]

The government agency also stresses the following, “We have trained hundreds of journalists in a ten year period and their work is seen in mainstream international media.” Formed and paid by the U.S., they represent, above all, the interests of Washington whose objective is a “regime change” on the island. [26]

From a juridical point of view, this reality in fact places the dissidents who accept the emoluments offered by USAID in the position of being agents at the service of a foreign power, which constitutes a serious violation of the Cuban Penal Code. The agency is aware of this reality and simply reminds all that “nobody is obliged to accept or be part of the programs of the government of the United States.” [27]

Judy Gross, the wife of Alan Gross, was authorized to visit him in prison for the first time in July 2010. [28]She took the occasion to send a letter to Cuban President Raúl Castro in which she expressed her repentance and apologized for the acts of her husband. “I understand today the Cuban Government does not appreciate the type of work Alan was doing in Cuba. His intention was never to hurt your government.” [29]

Judy Gross also accuses the State Department of not having explained to her husband that his activities were illegal in Cuba. If Alan had known that something would happen to him in Cuba, he would not have done that. I think he was not clearly informed about the risks.” [30]

A Way Out?

Clearly, Alan Gross violated the law. Of that there can be no doubt. On the other hand, he seems to have done little harm. His continued incarceration results in no important benefits to the U.S. His release, on the other hand, could be a major step toward improved U.S.-Cuban relations, especially if in the process he were prepared to apologize for his actions.

There is another side to the matter, however, and that has to do with the so-called Cuban Five. Just as the U.S. seems unwilling to move ahead in relations unless there is some movement in the Gross case, so do the Cubans seem reluctant to move without progress in the case of the Cuban Five, who were incarcerated in 1998. They were sent up to the U.S. by the Cuban government to penetrate and develop information about the anti-Castro terrorists groups in Florida after a sequence of bomb attacks against tourist centers in Havana. The idea was then to provide that information to the FBI so that it could take action to halt the exile terrorists. A meeting between representatives of the FBI and the Cubans was held in Havana over several days in June of 1998 and some forty folders of evidence were turned over to the FBI. The Cubans then waited for the U.S. to take action against the terrorists. But none was taken; rather, shortly thereafter, the FBI began arresting the Cuban five. In other words, they arrested those who had provided the evidence rather than the terrorists themselves. The Five were arrested, tried and convicted, though “tried” is not the right word for the trial was a sham. The prosecutors had no real evidence and so fell back on the old standby of trying them for “conspiracy” to commit illegal acts. No evidence, and they were tried in Miami where anti-Castro sentiment had reached such a level with the Elian Gonzalez case that there was no chance of empanelling an impartial jury. Defense lawyers requested a change of venue, but, incredibly, it was denied.

Worst of all was the case of Gerardo Hernandez, who was accused of “conspiracy” to commit murder and given two consecutive life sentences plus fifteen years–this in connection with the shoot down of the two Brothers to the Rescue planes in February of 1996. Never mind that there was no evidence that he was in any way responsible. But there, behind bars, he remains today, mostly in solitary confinement and after all these years not allowed a single visit from his wife.

The injustice in these cases contradicts the reputation of the U.S. for dedication to the rule of law. It must be corrected. Holding these men year after year without real evidence of any crime other than being the unregistered agents of a foreign power was one thing during the Cold War–though unjustified even then. But now, with the Cold War over and every possibility of beginning a new U.S.-Cuba relationship, it becomes morally unjustifiable and counterproductive. It is time surely to undertake a process of reviewing all these cases and then allowing these men to return to their families. One, René Gonzalez, has already been released from prison to serve out his remaining three years on parole, but at the same time, incredibly, not allowed to return to Cuba to be with his wife, who he has not seen in all these years. That, allowing his return, should perhaps be the first step in the process.

And it goes without saying that as the U.S. begins to move in the cases of the Cuban Five, Cuba should release Alan Gross to return to his family.
It should be noted that Alan Gross himself suggested there should be some reciprocal movement in these cases. “Following the recent exchange of the Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, for 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, Gross was clear that he wants the United States and Cuba to make a similar gesture for him and the Cuban Five,” explained Rabbi David Shneyer, who had visited Gross in Havana.

Whistleblower packen aus. Nicht über die brisanten Geheimdienstinformationen, die sie öffentlich machten, sondern über ihr Schicksal als „Verräter“ und angeklagte Straftäter. Weil sie die Wahrheit sagten, stehen sie nun am Pranger. In ihrer Geschichte spiegelt sich das Bild einer panischen politischen Praxis der USA im Kampf gegen den internationalen Terror.

Ex-C.I.A. Officer’s Path From Terrorist Hunter to Defendant

By
Published: January 24, 2012

WASHINGTON — In March 2002, John Kiriakou coordinated a team of fellow Central Intelligence Agency officers and Pakistani agents that descended upon a house in Pakistan where they believed they might find Abu Zubaydah, a high-level figure in Al Qaeda.

Rushing into the house amid the bloody aftermath of a shootout, Mr. Kiriakou seized a heavily wounded man, photographed his ear, and used his cellphone to send the image to an analyst. “It’s him,” the analyst reported back after comparing the shape of the ear to file photographs of Abu Zubaydah.

Mr. Kiriakou, who recounted the episode in a 2010 memoir, and his colleagues had captured alive the first big target in the Qaeda hierarchy after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington — “one of the brightest moments of my professional life,” he described it.

Now, Mr. Kiriakou is embroiled in another drama. The same government that a decade ago sent him to risk his life taking on Al Qaeda is now trying to send him to prison for as much as 30 years, charging him with disclosing classified information — the identity of two former colleagues who participated in interrogating detainees — to journalists.

Several friends said the C.I.A. this week abruptly fired his wife, who had worked as an analyst there since before the couple met; specifically, one said, she was called, while on maternity leave, and told her to submit her resignation. (The agency declined to comment.)

Mr. Kiriakou’s lawyer Plato Cacheris said Tuesday that his client would plead not guilty, but could not discuss the matter. Friends and former colleagues say that Mr. Kiriakou is determined to fight the case.

The grandson of Greek immigrants, Mr. Kiriakou, 47, grew up in New Castle, in western Pennsylvania’s steel country. His parents, both now dead, were elementary school teachers, and his father eventually became a principal, a childhood friend recalled.

The friend, Gary Senko, still lives in New Castle and has remained friends with Mr. Kiriakou; the two were in each other’s weddings, he is the godfather of Mr. Kiriakou’s daughter, and they text each other during Pittsburgh Steelers games. As a high school student, he said, Mr. Kiriakou played in the school band and was an honor student, taking an interest in politics and making clear that he had set his sights on the wider world.

“We joked that he was going to run for president some day,” Mr. Senko recalled.

Mr. Kiriakou attended George Washington University on a partial scholarship, majoring in Middle Eastern Studies. He applied to the C.I.A. at the suggestion of a professor, Dr. Jerrold M. Post, who had served at the agency, according to Mr. Kiriakou’s 2010 memoir, “The Reluctant Spy: My Secret Life in the C.I.A.’s War on Terror.”

He began as an analyst and learned Arabic, but eventually trained as an operations officer, working in Athens and the Middle East. His book recounts several adventures, including ambushing and disarming a trainee after learning the man had been directed to kill him by a terrorist group.

He was dispatched to Pakistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, hunting down Qaeda figures. When he returned home to Northern Virginia, however, Mr. Kiriakou had difficulties. His first marriage had broken up earlier, and he fought a bitter custody battle with his former wife over their two sons. He later married his current wife; they now have three children.

In his book, Mr. Kiriakou describes strains with a supervisor over the time required by his family responsibilities. He decided to resign from the agency in 2004, and worked for several years at the auditing firm Deloitte, analyzing security risks for businesses overseas.

In late 2007, Mr. Kiriakou waded into the public debate over the C.I.A.’s use of the suffocation tactic called waterboarding. He gave an interview to ABC News saying it had elicited good information from detainees, but that the country should no longer use the technique because “we’re Americans and we’re better than this.”

Suddenly a controversial figure, he was asked to leave Deloitte, according to several friends and former colleagues. A Deloitte spokeswoman confirmed his employment, but said the firm could not comment further because of a confidentiality policy.

The interview got him trouble in another way. He described Abu Zubaydah as having started cooperating with investigators within seconds of being waterboarded. In fact, according to a document made public in 2009, the C.I.A. waterboarded him 83 times, and Mr. Kiriakou later admitted that he did not personally witness any waterboarding sessions.

A version of this article appeared in print on January 25, 2012, on page A20 of the New York edition with the headline: Ex-C.I.A. Officer’s Path From Terrorist Hunter to Defendant.

Ex-C.I.A. Officer Charged in Information Leak

By
Published: January 23, 2012

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department on Monday charged a former Central Intelligence Agency officer with disclosing classified information to journalists about the capture and brutal interrogation of a suspected member of Al Qaeda, Abu Zubaydah — adding another chapter to the Obama administration’s crackdown on leaks.

ABC

John Kiriakou in a 2007 ABC interview.

In a criminal complaint filed on Monday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation accused John Kiriakou, the former C.I.A. officer, of disclosing the identity of a C.I.A. analyst who worked on a 2002 operation that located and interrogated Abu Zubaydah. The journalists included a New York Times reporter, it alleged.

“Safeguarding classified information, including the identities of C.I.A. officers involved in sensitive operations, is critical to keeping our intelligence officers safe and protecting our national security,” said Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., in a statement.

At the same time, the department on Monday cleared of wrongdoing a legal defense team for inmates at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, for its efforts to identify officials involved in the coercive interrogations of “high value” suspects. The effort was a project by the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to bolster the representation of detainees facing death sentences in military commissions.

Mr. Kiriakou, who was released on a $250,000 bond after appearing in federal court in Alexandria, Va., on Monday, was a leader of the team that captured Abu Zubaydah, and he came to public attention in late 2007 when he gave an interview to ABC News portraying the suffocation technique called waterboarding as torture, but calling it necessary. (It later emerged that he significantly understated the C.I.A.’s use of the technique.) His lawyer did not return a call for comment on Monday.

The prosecution of Mr. Kiriakou is the sixth criminal case brought under President Obama against current or former government officials accused of providing classified information to the media, more such cases than all previous presidents combined. The crackdown, long sought by the C.I.A. and other agencies, has won the administration some credit with security officials angered by the president’s earlier decision to release classified legal opinions on the agency’s interrogation program.

Officials have said the administration’s campaign against leaks has resulted from a belief among the intelligence agencies and members of both parties in Congress that unauthorized disclosures by government employees holding security clearances were out of control. But Mr. Obama entered office pledging unprecedented transparency for government operations, and his record has drawn fire from civil libertarians and groups supporting whistle-blowers and press freedoms.

Among other things, the F.B.I. complaint accuses Mr. Kiriakou of being a source for a June 2008 front-page Times article, written by reporter Scott Shane. It identified a C.I.A. employee, Deuce Martinez, who played a major role interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, believed to have handled logistics for Al Qaeda, and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Robert Christie, a spokesman for The Times, declined to comment.

The case is the second against a former C.I.A. officer for allegedly disclosing classified information to reporters within the past year. In 2011, Jeffrey Sterling, a former agency employee, was charged with leaking information allegedly used by James Risen, a Times reporter, in his 2006 book, “State of War.” (That case may be collapsing due to a judge’s ruling barring two witnesses from testifying; the prosecution has appealed.)

In a statement on Monday warning C.I.A. employees not to leak information, the C.I.A. director, David H. Petraeus, took note of both cases, saying that the agency “fully supported the investigation from the beginning and will continue to do so.”….

Der Fall Baltazar Garzón: Die Bürokratisierung der Justiz

März 29, 2012  | by Gülpen Garay

Vor dem Hintergrund der Anklagen ge- genüber dem spanischen Untersu- chungsrichter Baltazar Garzón wegen Rechtsbeugung in drei Fällen suchte der erste Kongress des neu gegründeten Deutschen Anwaltvereins Spanien am 24. Januar 2012 eine Antwort auf die Frage: „Die Justiz: ein verlorener Fall?“. In der Podiumsdiskussion im Plenarsaal des OVG Berlin-Brandenburg warf Raúl Zaffaroni, Richter am Obersten Argenti- nischen Gerichtshof, der spanischen Ju- stiz Bürokratisierung vor. Martín Pallín, ehemaliger Richter des Obersten Spani- schen Gerichtshofs, sprach von einer Verschwörung gegen Garzón.

Garzón, das Weltgewissen

1998 wurde der Untersuchungsrichter Baltazar Garzón weltweit bekannt, als er Augusto Pinochet durch einen Haftbe- fehl für 500 Tage in Großbritannien unter Hausarrest stellen ließ. Dem Ex-Diktator wurden schwerste Menschenrechtsver- letzungen an spanischen Bürgern während der Militärdiktatur in Chile vor- geworfen. Nun sitzt der Richter selbst auf der Anklagebank; wegen des Vor- wurfes der Rechtsbeugung in drei Fäl- len. Aber es ist nicht die Staatsanwalt- schaft, die ihn anklagte, sondern ultra- rechte Gruppierungen, die die Auf- klärung von Verbrechen aus der Zeit der Franco-Diktatur im Rahmen einer Popu- larklage verhindern wollen.

Fehlurteil des Obersten Gerichtshofs

Im dritten Fall, dem sogenannten Fall „Gürtel“, wurde Garzón im Februar 2012 auf Grund einer Privatklage verurteilt; die Richter des Obersten Gerichtshofs sahen es als erwiesen an, dass Garzón das Abhören der Gespräche zwischen Untersuchungshäftlingen und ihren An- wälten in dem Wissen anordnete, gegen geltendes Recht zu verstoßen. Neben einer Geldstrafe muss der 56-Jährige Garzón ein 11-jähriges Berufsverbot über sich ergehen lassen, was das vor- läufige Ende seiner Karriere bedeutet. Im Fall „Gürtel“ versuchte Garzón, ein korruptes Netzwerk aus Unternehmern und Politikern der regierenden konser- vativen Volkspartei Partido Popular (PP) aufzudecken.

Er rechtfertigt die Abhöraktionen damit, dass davon ausgegangen werden mus- ste, dass die Anwälte während des Ge- fängnisbesuches von den inhaftierten Verdächtigen Anweisungen zum Geld- waschen erhielten. Garzón konnte sich dabei auf Artikel 51 Absatz 2 des spani- schen Strafvollzugsgesetzes Ley Orgá- nica General Penitenciaria (LOGP) stüt- zen:

Die Verständigungen des Inhaftierten mit dem Strafverteidiger […] dürfen nicht unterbrochen werden oder an ih- nen teilgenommen werden, es sei denn durch richterliche Anordnung und bei Verdacht auf Terrorismus. (Überset- zung durch R.Z.)…

by George Venturini *

29garzon-pensativo.jpg

March 29, 2012 – On 17 January 2012 Judge Baltasar Garzón Real walked into one of the ornate courtrooms of the Spanish Supreme Court, which is housed in the former convent known as the Palacio de las Salesas Reales, and followed his lawyer to the red velvet chair opposite the prosecution, and before seven judges of the Spanish Tribunal Supremo – Supreme Court.

Alte Tradition: Israel zerstört die Deutschen Entwicklungshilfe Projekte im Gaza und in der Westbank

April 1, 2012 2 Kommentare

von Deutschland bezahlte, Wasser Projekte, Energie Projekte, Verwaltungs Gebäude, werden mit System von Israel nach kurzer Zeit wieder zerstört, was in Milliarden inzwischen geht. Deutschland schweigt.

Damit finanziert Deutschland den Terror der Ethnischen Säuberungen, durch die Israelis, und U-Boot Finanzierung erhält Israel sowieso und andere Waffen Finanzierungen. siehe Ethnische Säuberungen durch Uni Prof. Pappe – Uni Haifa, was historisch bewiesen ist und bis heute weiter geht.

March 30, 2012 – A handful of makeshift homes built from small boulders and plastic tarps and secured with thick ropes sit in the isolated community of She’b El- Buttum in the South Hebron Hills. A few metres away, several rows of solar panels and two wind turbines are affixed to the rocky hilltop, providing electricity to the village’s 150 residents. „We use the electricity for the milking machine, for the washing machine, the fridge, and for getting light when night falls,“ says Ismail Al-Jabarin, a 43-year-old She’b El-Buttum resident. „Before getting access to electricity, we lived on a generator that functioned two hours a day only, and had frequent problems. It is much, much better with electricity.“

Scores injured at Qalandia in Land Day protest
Mya Guarnieri


March 30, 2012 – Israeli forces used rubber-coated bullets, tear gas, skunk water, and „the scream“ acoustic weapon against demonstrators. Some Palestinian youth burned tires and threw stones.

Speaking to +972, Dr. Zaid Atabeh of the Palestinian Authority-affiliated Military Medical Services said that 85 protesters had been injured, 12 of whom were hospitalized. All of the injuries were from tear gas and rubber bullets. Palestinian politician and activist Mustafa Barghouti was reportedly among those injured and hospitalized…

Amnesty International


30 March 2012 – A deal that led to Palestinian Hana Shalabi halting her hunger strike and facing transfer to the Gaza Strip for a three year period could amount to a forcible deportation, Amnesty International said.

Libya’s humanitarian catastophe the West doesn’t care about because it caused it: (Video)
RussiaToday


March 30, 2012 – The lawlessness Libya has plunged into is the direct result of how the current government came into power, Oxford-based freelance journalist Neil Clark told RT. „The main problem is that Libya is awash with arms. And who is to blame for this? It’s the Western powers, who gave these arms to the rebels to topple Gaddafi. And now you have different tribal militias all heavily armed. You have got a very week divided government in Tripoli, which cannot control its territory. You have got a real recipe for anarchy at the moment,“ he explained. „The main Western news channels are not covering the story the way they are not covering Iraq. In the end of the story Gaddafi is gone, and they are really not interested in reporting what’s going on, which is a human rights catastrophe,“ he added….
