Österreich weiter Zentrum der Terror-Finanzierung

Wien, AT – Vor Jahren gab es die kleine Aufregung: Gegen die HAMAS-Funktionäre Adel Abdallah Doghman und Hani Abdelhalim waren strafrechtliche Ermittlungen geführt worden, wegen Terror-Finanzierung. Nicht sein konnte, was nicht sein durfte. Die damalige Justizministerin Maria Berger ordnete die Einstellung des Verfahrens an. Einer der Hintermänner, der Muslimbruder Anas Schakfeh, erhielt auf Vorschlag Bergers das Goldene Verdienstabzeichen. Niemand weiß bis heute, wofür. Read more of this post

AK-103 and F2000 assault rifles in Gaza

On October 2nd the armed wing of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (حركة الجهاد الإسلامي في فلسطين‎), the al-Quds Brigades, took to the streets of Fatah in Southern Gaza to mark the 17th anniversary of the assassination of Fathi al-Shaqaqi. Shaqaqi was assassinated in Malta by the Mossad in 1995. Each year, the al-Quds Brigades take to the streets for a military parade to mark the event, brandishing a variety of arms and carrying all manner of banners and flags. This year’s parade, however, was a little different, and held some interesting items for those of us following the spread of various small arms. Amongst the usual assortment of Russian AKMs & Eastern Bloc copies, Chinese Type 56 variants, PKMs, and RPG-7 variants and copies were two far less common weapons: the F2000 and AK-103 assault rifles.

„KURIER“ in Schieflage

Österreichische Medien haben es schwer. Sie leiden unter parteipolitischem Einwirken. Kaum ein Journalist kommt zur Geltung, ohne entweder ein Parteibuch zu besitzen oder sich der Steuerung einer parteigesteuerten Redaktion zu unterwerfen.
Der KURIER ist keine Ausnahme. Längst verflossen sind die Zeiten, als der KURIER noch relativ unabhängig berichten durfte. Heute ist Anpassung gefragt, selbst um den Preis, manchmal regelrecht als Parteiorgan zu wirken. Read more of this post

ORF – die Propaganda-Maschine

Österreichischer Rundfunk Fernsehen. So nennt sich das Unternehmen, das in Österreich immer noch als öffentliche Anstalt verkauft wird, mit Bildungs- und Informationsauftrag. Das mit zwangsweise eingehobenen Zwangsbeiträgen künstlich am Leben erhalten wird. Lange vergessen ist das Rundfunk-Volksbegehren. Heute ist der ORF nur mehr eine teure Propaganda-Maschine, die das tägliche Geschehen so einfärbt und darstellt, wie es parteipolitisch vorgegeben wird. Read more of this post

Hamas’s Ideological Crisis

Despite its success as the first Muslim Brotherhood organization to control and govern territory, and in part because of that success, Hamas today is under significant stress. In the West Bank, Hamas faces a severe security crackdown that has driven the movement underground. And in Gaza, Hamas has been forced to choose between engaging in acts of violence or attempting to effectively govern the territory it took over by force of arms. The result is an acute ideological tension within Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement, which has been forced to suspend the resistance for which it is named and by which it defines itself.

The Talibanization of Gaza: A Liability for the Muslim Brotherhood

Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that splintered off from the Muslim Brotherhood in early 1988, launched a surprise military offensive on June 7, 2007, to wrest control of the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Fatah faction that made up a majority of the PA’s leadership. Within six days of fighting, Hamas fighters wearing black ski masks controlled the thoroughfares, media, and even key PA buildings. For the first time since the Sudanese coup of 1989 that brought Omar al-Bashir to power, a Muslim Brotherhood group ruled a significant geographic territory. Read more of this post

The Deadly Combination

Communist – Islamist – Antisemitic.

Terms, leading unavoidably to death, to destruction, especially when put together. The undisputed Master in refining these arts, in covering them up behind religious hypocrisy and peace initiatives, is the Muslim Brotherhood (Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimun), together with it’s numerous offshoot branches.
One of the most famous, rather infamous, of these branches is the Hamas, founded in Gaza to lead the Jihad against Jews, against real muslims, against everyone not in line Read more of this post

Israel unveils seized arms cache from cargo ship

ASHDOD, Israel — Rows of boxes, crates and containers filled with weapons stretched out on a dock Wednesday alongside a ship commandeered by Israel‘s navy, a display of what Israel said was a shipment of arms, some sophisticated, to Palestinian militants in Gaza.
Israel intercepted the ship Tuesday in international waters in the Mediterranean, saying it was carrying weapons sent by Iran via Syria. Israel says the advanced anti-ship missiles found on board could alter the region‘s balance of power by impeding its ability to enforce a naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Peaceful Missions – oder?

Im Mittleren Osten (für Europäer der Nahe Osten) tummeln sich schon lange, schon viel zu lange, Terroristen. Nicht politische, nicht soziale Ziele verfolgen sie. Sie wollen viel Macht, schnelles Geld, haben Freude am Töten. Einer der bekanntesten Terroristen-Chefs war Yasser Arafat. Der liberale Westen liebt solche Leute, je mehr Blut, desto besser. Als Top-Terrorist erhielt Arafat denn auch den Friedensnobelpreis.
Das Feld der Terroristen-Gruppen ist seit Jahren relativ konsolidiert. Im Libanon steht die Hezbollah, als einzige private Gruppe dort voll bewaffnet, bezieht Geld und Material hauptsächlich aus dem Iran. Dessen radikales Regime alle Wege nutzt, um den Erzfeind Israel angreifen zu können. Sogar ein toter Jude ist ein schlechter Jude, heißt es dort. Die Iraner profitieren davon, bereits Atomwaffen zu besitzen. Deshalb wagt sich niemand so richtig an sie heran; Carters unnötiges Teheran-Debakel lähmt schon viel zu lange. Read more of this post

Wheelchairs as well as weapons found on board aid ships

The array of equipment found on board the ships that made up the Gaza aid flotilla was as divergent as the flotilla’s stated aims.
On the one hand there was medical equipment aimed to help ease the suffering of Gaza’s sick and handicapped, and on the other there were knives, slingshots and night vision goggles, which indicate hostile goals.
Israeli military officials have said that the amount of goods found on the ships are a drop in the sea compared to the amount of goods that regularly pass into Gaza, and extrapolated that it indicates that transfer of humanitarian assistance was not the top priority of the flotilla’s organizers.
