Fight Global War! Fight Capitalism! ... in munich 2004

26-01-2004 01:24

Every year on the second weekend of February the leading warmongers meet in Munich: at the former called "Wehrkundetagung", meanwhile renamed "Munich Conference of Security policy" generals and politicians from member states of NATO and other military powers like Russia and China come together to discuss the military aspects of capitalist world division/capitalist globalisation. The host is nobody else than Horst Teltschick, a former foreign policy expert in the government of Helmut Kohl. Today he works for the "Quandt-Stiftung". The Quandts are main shareholders of the transnational group BMW. It's a natural course of action that friends and competitors of the armaments industry are also invited to this illustrious party.

"Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty republicans!"

eyewitness account from Nablus

25-01-2004 10:52

I received this account from a friend of mine living in Nablus. She and I are both Jewish and are increasingly appalled at the way in which the Army perpetuates the cycle of violence. Out of these 100s of traumatised victims, I wonder how many got to the end of the day and thought 'We must have understanding for the Jewish people, and maybe not all Israelis are soldiers, maybe some are normal people'? If there were any, it would be a miracle. If none of these victims contemplate suicide bombing, it will also be a miracle and no thanks to the Israeli Army. But I hope ridiculously that these miracles somehow happen.
