US uses contractors to bypass international humanitarian laws — RT

The use of private contractors allows the US to evade responsibility for violations of international humanitarian legislation, a top Russian diplomat for human rights and democracy said.

The comment came from Foreign Ministry Commissioner Konstantin Dolgov as the US Justice Department halted an investigation into the attempted bribing of Iraqi police officials by employees of the Blackwater security company (re-branded as ‘Academi’ in late 2011).

Blackwater attempted to pay $1 million in bribes for new contracts in Iraq, and also to block an investigation into the 2007 murder of 17 Iraqi civilians, including several children, by Blackwater operatives, a statement published on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website said.

The US State Department didn’t end its relationship with Blackwater for two years after the tragedy, Dolgov said.

“Despite the scandalous experience with the Blackwater company, the US military and foreign policy agencies continue to attract contractors for doing the ‘dirty work’ in the zone of armed conflicts,” Dolgov said. “Such outsourcing of state functions to private firms allows the US government to evade the responsibility for violation of international humanitarian norms.”

“The Blackwater case is a vivid example of impunity enjoyed by the employees of private security companies, despite blatant violations of international Human Rights standards. The current situation is a result of the inconsistent and selective actions of the US authorities, who ignore the rights of Iraqis who fall victim to the employees of private security companies. We expect that the US authorities will at last take some measures to punish the responsible contractors of the company formerly known as Blackwater,” the statement read.

Dolgov added that a US court had sentenced Russian citizen Viktor Bout to 25 years in prison for his alleged intention to sell weapons to Colombian rebels, while the “company that succeeded Blackwater” received no punishment after confessing to illegally supplying weapons to Iraq, Afghanistan and Sudan. “Is not it a very visual demonstration of double standards used by the US justice?” he said.

Pakistani Christian boy tortured, mutilated, burnt — RT

With the hysteria over the arrest of a Christian girl with Down’s syndrome on a charge of blasphemy yet to blow over, the brutally tortured body of an 11-year-old Christian boy has been found in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

­The body of Samuel Yaqoob, was discovered with his lips and nose cut off, his stomach removed and his legs mutilated. According to police the body was later burned and could hardly be recognized.

Relatives identified the corpse from a distinctive mark on the boy’s forehead.

Yaqoob, a resident of the Christian Colony of Faisalabad, had been missing since August 20, last seen on his way to a local market. His mutilated remains were found on Eid-Ul-Fitr holiday, which marks the end of the month-long Muslim fast of Ramadan.

Detectives are investigating whether accusations of blasphemy had previously been filed against the minor. Yaquub was believed to be an orphan, but The Telegraph reports that his mother was quoted in the local press denying any allegations were made.

«We neither received any phone call for ransom nor were we told that Samuel had committed blasphemy,»
she said.

When a Christian group is suspected of transgressing the blasphemy laws, the consequences can be brutal, reports the World Public Forum NGO.

The death of the 11-year-old comes a week after a young Christian girl with Down’s syndrome was charged with blasphemy after reportedly burning pages of a Koran.

Rifta Masih was beaten by local Muslims after they witnessed her allegedly torching pages of the sacred book when cooking. Several hundred Christians have fled their homes following the incident in fear of violence after local mosques reported the alleged incident over loudspeakers, and hundreds of Muslims taken to the streets.

In Pakistan, those accused of blasphemy are subject to instant imprisonment and most are denied bail to prevent mob violence. As a rule, the accused are placed in solitary confinement for their own protection against harassment from inmates or guards.

Those that have been acquitted from the charges, often leave the country, one of the strictest enforcers of Sharia law in the world, reports the Washington Post. In Pakistan, slandering Islam or its holy book is punishable by death.

There have been no executions for blasphemy, though Asia Bibi, a mother of five and a Christian, was sentenced to death two years ago. Bibi has not been executed as of yet, and may be pardoned of her death sentence.

Christian minister Shahbaz Bhatti and Pakistani government politician Salmaan Taseer were both assassinated for opposing the blasphemy laws in connection with Bibi’s case.

Last month, a man accused of desecrating a Koran was dragged from a police station by a mob and beaten to death.

According to Human Rights Watch researcher Ali Dyan Hasan, «The [country’s blasphemy] law creates this legal infrastructure which is then used in various informal ways to intimidate, coerce, harass and persecute.»

XA! XA! Ο Νίλς Μούιζνιεκς (NILS MUIZNIEKS) Επίτροπος για τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα της ΕΕ θα ελέγξει τη νομιμότητά της ΧΡΥΣΗΣ ΑΥΓΗΣ

Posted by satyrikon στο 17 Ιουλίου, 2012

Η αυξανόμενη εχθρότητα εναντίον των μεταναστών στην Ελλάδα κινητοποίησε το Συμβούλιο της Ευρώπης. Ο Επίτροπος για τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα Νίλς Μούιζνιεκς

ανακοίνωσε ότι θα ταξιδέψει ως επικεφαλής αντιπροσωπείας στην Αθήνα, προκειμένου να ελέγξει τη νομιμότητα του κόμματος Χρυσή Αυγή, μιας «φασιστικής οργάνωσης», όπως σημειώνουν οι FT Deutschland.

Το κόμμα αυτό είναι «πιο ανοιχτά εξτρεμιστικό και ναζιστικό από οποιοδήποτε άλλο κόμμα στην Ευρώπη», δήλωσε ο Επίτροπος σε συνέντευξη προς  την εφημερίδα «Το Βήμα».

Η βαθιά οικονομική κρίση στην Ελλάδα έχει δώσει ώθηση στα ακραία κόμματα, με τη φασιστική Χρυσή Αυγή να επιτυγχάνει στις εκλογές του Μαΐου και του Ιουνίου για πρώτη φορά την είσοδο στο κοινοβούλιο.  Ταυτοχρόνως όμως, αυξάνονται και οι αναφορές σε επιθέσεις εναντίον μεταναστών, ενώ η πολιτική ηγεσία δέχεται επικρίσεις ότι παραμένει άπρακτη.

Η επίσκεψη του Μούιζνιεκς αναμένεται να είναι δυσάρεστη στην ελληνική κυβέρνηση. Από την άλλη πλευρά, λόγω και της οικονομικής εποπτείας η οποία ασκείται από την ΕΕ, πολλοί Έλληνες έχουν την αίσθηση ότι η χώρα έχει απωλέσει την κυριαρχία της.

Λίγο πριν από την παρέμβαση του Μούιζνιεκς είχε προηγηθεί η έκθεση του Human Rights Watch (HRW), η οποία απηύθυνε σοβαρές κατηγορίες εναντίον της Ελληνικής Αστυνομίας, και πιο συγκεκριμένα ότι ανέχεται τη ρατσιστική βία στην χώρα. Το HRW πήρε συνέντευξη από 59 θύματα εγκληματικών ενεργειών μεταξύ του 2009 και 2012, χωρίς όμως να μπορεί να δώσει ακριβή στοιχεία για την κλίμακα της βίας εναντίον των μεταναστών.

Ο Μούιζνιεκς υποστήριξε ότι διαθέτει αναφορές τέτοιων οργανωμένων επιθέσεων. Ο επικεφαλής της Χρυσής Αυγής, Νίκος Μιχαλολιάκος, αμφισβητεί τη συμμετοχή μελών και φίλων του κόμματός του στις επιθέσεις. Στις αρχές Ιουνίου πάντως η αστυνομία συνέλαβε στον Πειραιά μία ομάδα μαυροντυμένων μοτοσικλετιστών της Χρυσής Αυγής, η οποία επιτέθηκε και τραυμάτισε σοβαρά έναν αλλοδαπό. Μεταξύ των συλληφθέντων ήταν και η κόρη του Μιχαλολιάκου.

Bring Nazi to school day? SS lesson at Latvian nursery sparks controversy (VIDEO)

Recently released video of two men in Waffen SS uniform conducting a lesson at a Latvian kindergarten has brought on a wave of anger and debate in Latvia and abroad.

­The two men from the Latvian Soldier group came to Riga’s Pucite [Owlet] kindergarten to give what they called a “patriotic upbringing” lesson.

The footage shows the men telling children about the heroic role of Waffen SS soldiers in the Second World War.

The two, however, did not limit themselves to stories only, but brought handouts for the little listeners.

The video shows the three- and four-year-olds playing with pistols, machine-guns and grenades from the WWII era.

Latvia`s Minister of Education Rober Kilis has condemned the incident, urging an investigation into the circumstances of the lesson, Latvian media report.

“Weapons, people in military uniform and such activity in a kindergarten are absolutely unacceptable – this is my personal point of view,” he was quoted by Delfi.lv website.

The lesson is believed to have happened on March 16 – a day of commemoration of Latvian troops that joined Waffen SS forces in the fight against the Soviet Union.

On that day, hundreds of Latvian Waffen SS veterans marched through the capital Riga. Moscow has repeatedly expressed outrage over such ceremonies celebrating the Nazi past. The EU has also expressed concern.

The Waffen SS was a multi-ethnic and multinational military force of the Third Reich.

Around 150,000 Latvians served in the Waffen SS, the Nazis’ non-German regiments, during World War II.

Shalom Chaverim!
First of all, I hope that all of our families had a
happy Pesach. The fact that Pesach is the celebration
of our going out from slavery to freedom
should have poignant significance to us this year.
I look upon our endeavors in genealogy as a sort
of year round Pesach. As I watch my family grow
more numerous with the more research I do, I
feel that we have, indeed, been freed from slavery.
Although Hitler and his collaborators tried to
erase the names of the Jews from the face of the
earth, our continued efforts in genealogy totally
remove that possibility from reality.

«ΟΥΡΑΝΙΟ ΤΟΞΟ» ΚΑΙ ΟΙ ΣΧΕΣΕΙΣ ΤΟΥ ΜΕ ΤΑ ΣΚΟΠΙΑ

Posted by satyrikon στο 12 Μαρτίου, 2009

ΔΙΑΒΑΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΠΑΡΑΚΑΤΩ ΚΕΙΜΕΝΟ ΓΙΑ ΝΑ ΔΕΙΤΕ ΤΗΝ ΑΜΕΣΗ ΣΧΕΣΗ ΤΟΥ «ΟΥΡΑΝΙΟΥ ΤΟΞΟΥ» ΚΑΙ ΤΩΝ ΣΚΟΠΙΑΝΩΝ ΕΘΝΙΚΙΣΤΩΝ.

ΕΤΣΙ ΘΑ ΕΞΗΓΗΣΕΤΕ ΤΟ ΑΠΑΞΙΩΤΙΚΟ ΧΑΜΟΓΕΛΟ ΤΟΥ ΑΡΧΗΓΟΥ ΤΟΥ ΟΥΡΑΝΙΟΥ ΤΟΞΟΥ ,ΒΟΣΚΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ, ΣΤΗΝ ΕΚΠΟΜΠΗ ΤΟΥ ΧΑΡΔΑΒΕΛΛΑ ΚΑΙ ΤΗΝ ΤΕΛΕΥΤΑΙΑ ΤΟΥ ΑΠΟΣΤΡΟΦΗ ΣΤΗΝ ΣΛΑΒΙΚΗ ΓΛΩΣΣΑ.

The Rainbow Party is a political party in Greece who self describe as representing the interests of an «ethnic-Macedonian» minority in Greece. The Rainbow Party asserts that it stands for the principles of human rights, civility and integrity. In the 2004 European Parliamentary elections Rainbow managed to obtain 6,176 votes, equalling to .098% of the popular vote in Greece. This figure should be a sobering indicator to nationalists from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M) of the number of people who affiliate with a «Macedonian» ethno/national identity in Greece. This political barometer, set in the process of an internationally monitored democratic process, indicates that the unsubstantiated figure of «hundreds of thousands» of «ethnic Macedonians» living in Greece is nothing more than political propaganda being peddled by nationalists from F.Y.R.O.M and her diaspora.

The Rainbow Party’s official website is florina.org

rainbow1A domain lookup of florina.org, freely available from the internet website http://whois.domaintools.com/, reveals that Lubi Uzunovski is the registrant and administrator of the Rainbow Party’s website:

florinaorg2A quick domain lookup reveals that Mr. Lubi Uzunovski is the registrant and administrator of the maknews.com website:

maknewscomHence both maknews.com and florina.org are administered by and registered to Mr. Lubi Uzunovski.

(No respect will be found here either.. especially towards individuals like Lubi Uzunovski, the well known former Serb, current hard-core FYROMian nationalist on FYROM government payrole, that’s behind (owner actually) sites like maknews and florina.org (the non-existant minority’s site) and «chairman» of propaganda organizations like the so-called «Canadian Macedonian Human Rights Committee»
Illiterate Afrocentrist mentors of trolls like the wanna-be Karanus who’ve been brainwashed to worship them ignoring their background and the views they’ve expressed in the past..
)

The Rainbow Party website implicitly sanctions and recommends maknews.com through a link advertised on their website as can be evidenced by the following list of links taken from their website:

rainbow2Readers should be concerned by the fact that the Rainbow Party has associated itself with Mr. Uzunovski by implicitly sanctioning Maknews.com and by having their official website, florina.org, admistered by and registered to Mr. Uzunovski.

To illustrate why the relationship between Uzunovski, his website maknews.com, and the Rainbow Party is indicative that the Rainbow Party is interested more in propaganda and less in civility, human rights and integrity, let us first examine statements from their manifesto which is published on their website.

To begin with the Rainbow manifesto claims that they have aligned itself with anti-chauvanist and anti-nationalists forces in Greece:

rainbow5If the Rainbow Party is so concerned with aliging themselves with anti-nationalist and anti-chauvanist forces why have they allowed their official website to be registered to and administered by Mr. Uzunovski who holds the following beliefs which he regularly advertises on maknews.com, the same maknews.com which the Rainbow Party implicitly sanctions with an advertised link.

Uzunovski’s Belief #1: Hellenism is a disease and a cult:
