”KLM weigert VS reizigers vanwege Trump/KLM medeplichtigheid aan uitsluitingsbeleid”

Although the muslimban is temporarily cancelled  by the Federal Judge [2],

Islamophobic policy  is still valid.

[Article of Peter Storm]/Racist tide in the Netherlands encounters opposition

 

Wednesday, 6 januari 2016

This article was written for Doorbraak, where it is published already in an illustrated version and with even more hyperlinks. It is also a blog piece on Libcom. By the way, happy and subversive new year to all of you :)

The Netherlands is experiencing a wave of racist, sometimes openly violent, actions and street mobilizations, mainly against refugees and the sheltering of refugees. Street mobilizations of an intimidatory character have occured where municipal councils debate whether to establish an AZC (Asielzoekerscentrum, centre for asylum seekers) or an emergency refugee shelter in their city or town. Small scale violence against houses where refugees live occur repeatedly. Meanwhile, official politics talks about the issue of refugees in a way that portrays them, not als people trying to escape the horrors of war and persecution, but mainly as ‘fortune-hunters’ who only come to the Netherlands to find jobs and social security.

TO THE MAYOR OF ANDERNACH
MR A HUTTEN
Subject:
The alliance between your city Andernach and the Israeli city
Dimona
Dear Mr Hutten,
I’ve recently learnt, that your city, Andernach  and the Israeli city Dimona
are twin cities since 1975. [1]
Not only Dimona, with its nuclear Research Centre, is a threat to peace and
humanity [2], there is a horrendous racism, reason enough
 for you to break all ties immediately.
To that racism I refer later.
First this:
ISRAELI OCCUPATION, OPPRESSION AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
Dimona, as a city  is not only part of the Israeli occupation State,
but by its nuclear involvement also an destructive military guardian
of the occupation.
Occupation State Israel is systematically violating the rights of the
occupied Palestinians.
The list is long, but here some horrible examples:

[Article Peter Storm]/The Hague, Netherlands: the heat is on

 

 

 

Thursday, 2 July, 2015/ donderdag 2  juli 2015

Below is an article I just wrote for Libcom.org and posted there.

The police killing of Mitch Henriquez has led to three nights of protest and anti-police resistance in The Hague, Several hundreds of young people were out on the hot streets, confronting the cops.

The police killing of Mitch Henriquez has led to three nights of protest and sometimes surprisingly serious anti-police resistance in the Schilderswijk, a poor neighbourhood where the majority of the people living there is of migrant background. Serveral hundreds of youn people confronted the cops for hours on Monday night and again on Wednesday night. But streets in the neighbourhood were not exacty quiet on Tuesday night either.

Lincoln Remembered in Washington D.C./Comments on Susan Higginbotham’s ”History Refreshed”

SLAVE TRADE
SLAVERY IN THE USA
HOUSES OF THE PLANTATION OWNERS

Dear Readers,

Knowing Susan Higginbotham from her impressive novels about
English Medieval History, Queen of Last Hopes [about the
life of Queen Margaretof Anjou, one of the major players in the Wars of
the Roses] and The Traitor’s wife [about Eleanor de Clare, wife to
Hugh Despenser the Younger, favourite of King Edward II], I was somewhat
surprised about her book about the American Civil War, Hanging Mary,
which describes the life of Mary Surrat, a Confederate sympathiser,
who had a boarding house.
John  Wilkes Booth, assassinator of president Lincoln, was
a regular visitor.
In Mary Surat’s boarding house Booth and fellow conspirators
Susan Higginbotham attended a vigil in remembrance of the
She wrote about that in her interesting Blog ”History Refreshed”
Her post was:
”LINCOLN REMEMBERED IN WASHINGTON, D.C.”
I wrote some comments about this post.

”DON”T BE AFRAID. I WON’T KILL YOU.
YOU’RE A WOMAN”
Sigolène Vinson, one of the survivors of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, has given an account of how her life was spared
Charlie Hebdo, a somewhat obscure magazine, [1] is suddenly is an
international star.
At wednesday 7 january, two masked gunmen killed ten members
of the Charlie Hebdo editorial staff and two police officers, during
an editorial meeting. [2]
Soon international political reactions burst out, from over the whole
world. [3]
The Dutch King Willem Alexander showed ”very shocked”, as the Dutch
prime minister Rutte [4] and the other heads of State.
Leitmotiv was the criminal act and, in various terms ”the attack
against freedom of expression, a precious fundamental freedom which we must continue to defend.” [5]
One of the few reactions, which looked farther, was the Indonesian,
which expressed, except a concdemnation  ” fear that Wednesday’s deadly shooting attack on the office of the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo, will harm Muslims around the world and hope the international community will be fair with this incident and not generalize it as part of Islam” [6]
Iran pointed out, that ” “making use of freedom of expression… to humiliate the monotheistic religions and their values and symbols is unacceptable.” [7]
And of course the Dutch extreme-right Europese political gangster,
PVV fuhrer G, Wilders [8], as other European racist scum, uttered
their hatespeech and war language against Islam and muslims. [9]
A ”Charlie Hausse” was created and millions in Europe
stood and shouted ”I am Charlie”
Cartoonists published more or less sordid cartoons [some
downright hatespeech] [10] and spontaneous ”I am Charlie”
demonstrations were held. [11]
This was only a prelude to the great Paris Charlie Hebdo March.
But there also were otherl sounds:
Morocco’s Foreign Minister Salahedinne Mezouar didn’t participate
with the Paris Charflie Hebdo March, because cartoons of the
Prophet Mohammed would be carried. [12]
The unity for Charlie Hebdo was not so broad as was
presented in de media:
An investigation of the Journal du Dimanche showed, that
four out of 10 French people think the magazine
Charlie Hebdo should not have published the Prophet
Mohammed cartoons because of the offense to muslims. [13]
A RIGHTFUL ”CHARLIE HAUSSE”?
OR IS THERE SOMETHING ROTTEN AT THE BOTTOM
OF ”CHARLIE”
Of course the killings of 12 people are never to be justified.
Understandable, thjat people want to show their grief and
solidarity.
But there is a big difference between showing your indignation
over a barbarous act and declaring solidarity with a magazine.
Because shouting ”Je suis Charlie” means identification
with the Charlie Hebd Magazine.
AND THAT’S THE POINT!
Because:
What is Charlie Hebdo and do they deserve solidarity?

The Netherlands marks Theo van Gogh murder/An Islamophobe and antisemite is not a saint

TEN YEARS COMMEMORATION OF THEO VAN GOGH AT THE
SCENE OF THE CRIME
Het is stil bij De Schreeuw
THE MONUMENT ”DE SCHREEUW” [THE SCREAM], IN
HONOUR OF THEO VAN GOGH
Joan of arc miniature graded.jpg

THEO VAN GOGH WAS NOT
ST JOAN OF ARC
This year it is ten years ago, that filmmaker Theo
van Gogh was killed, which is commemorated on several
places like the scene of the murder, ”his” monument
”De Schreeuw” [The Scream] and a commemoration on TV.
His films were performed again in Eye [The Amsterdam Filmhouse],
lectures,  documentaries on television and so on.[1]
Was he then the Dutch St Joan, Jeanne d’Arc? [2]
Not at all.
Here stands a common provocateur, a man, who loved to humiliate
and insult others and above all, an Islamofobe and antisemite.
A man, who didn’t deserve any attention, let alone this
ridiculous canonization.
Let’s open the dirty chamber pot and try not to
vomit from the smell.

EU: MUCH TALK ON RIGHTS, FEW RESULTS

 

Political Will, Collective Action Needed to Address Serious Abuses

RELATED MATERIALS:
Respect for human rights is measured in deeds, not words. Ordinary people, from the homeless in Hungary, to black and Arab teenagers constantly stopped by the police in France, to Syrian asylum seekers in Greece, are paying the price for the lack of robust rights enforcement.
Judith Sunderland, senior Europe and Central Asia researcher

(Brussels) – European Union (EU) leaders in 2013 acknowledged problems of rising intolerance and persistent human rights violations across the EU, but failed to take concerted action, Human Rights Watch said today in its World Report 2014. Human Rights Watch documented EU-level developments in migration and asylum, discrimination and intolerance, and counterterrorism, highlighting events in 11 member states, including a new member, Croatia.
