… or about the Swedish Red Cross (and somehow about the Associated Press, too) by the Associated Press I have just finished reading in the online edition of the Jerusalem Post. An article everybody should read mindfully and possibly more than once:
Just copying the title and leaving the page underneath blank may in fact be the best method for treating certain news agency reports, even if the “news” that “anti-Semitism is the rumor [or “rumour” – for Brits, whom it may concern even more] about the Jews” (Adorno) is not that new.

The campaign STOP THE BOMB – Coalition against the Iranian extermination programme has been mobilizing against a contract with Iran which the Austrian Mineral Oil Company (OMV) is planning to conclude. The campaign started an international online petition, which has been undersigned – amongst other prominent personages – by Elfriede Jelinek, Elie Wiesel and Imre Kertész, Albert Steinnhauser and Maria Vassilakou of the Austrian Green Party, and more than 4.300 other people from more than 60 countries. Now STOP THE BOMB requests in an open letter to the Federal Government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs the Austrian Republic to quit political support for deals with the Iranian regime. Considering statements given by Iranian opposition groups that at present a high-ranking delegation of OMV is staying in Iran to negotiate the concern’s planned 22 billion Euro deal with the Regime, STOP THE BOMB answers with an open letter referring to a writing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to our campaign. In this letter Thomas Mayr-Harting, political director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, describes the Austrian posoition regarding Iran and tries implicitly to legitimise deals of Austrian companies with Iran.

Another ordinary week has come and gone in southern Israel. Bombarded by rockets from Hamastan in Gaza, residents of Sderot, Ashkelon and nearby towns watched as their national leaders conducted negotiations by proxy with Hamas to release hundreds of terrorists in Israeli jails and consolidate Hamas’s weapons supply lines by suspending Israeli counter-terror operations during a “cease-fire.” Between trips to the local bomb shelter, they watched Israeli trucks deliver fuel and supplies to Hamas in Gaza in the morning and they watched Hamas store the fuel and supplies in depots near the border in the afternoon. In the evening they watched news reports echoing Hamas’s claims that Israel is depriving Gazan hospitals of fuel and Gazan civilians of basic foodstuffs.

A striking characterization by Caroline Glick, just found in the Jerusalem Post Online Edition:
[…] how will a President Hillary Clinton or a President Barack Obama respond after being shown that appeasement of the Palestinians has once again failed and that appeasement or deterrence of the Iranian regime has also failed once again? Given their distinct emotional makeup, it can be assumed that Obama will argue that reality is wrong and continue on – Carter-like – into the abyss and drag his country and Israel down with him. Acting in a Clinton-like way, Clinton on the other hand, would be more likely to pick a fight with Serbia – or call for a federal ban on chewing tobacco in a bid to change the subject.
Snow neve Schnee

brènnendes burning cuòre
heart ardènte herz
two due zwei
mondi welten worlds
in war against each other si guerrèggiano bekriegen sich
il terzo the third one die dritte

„Österreich ist für uns das Tor zur Europäischen Union“, so Ali Naghi Khamoushi, der Präsident der iranischen Handelskammer, im November 2006. Im März 2008 wird Österreich offiziell das 70-jährige Jubiläum des „Anschlusses“ betrauern. Zwei Monate später wird es an den 60-Jahres-Feierlichkeiten des Staates Israel teilnehmen. Diese Ereignisse sollten Anlass zu einer moralischen Gewissensprüfung sein. Österreich muss seine moralische Rhetorik in konkretes Handeln umsetzen, wenn es unter Beweis stellen will, dass es seine Lektion gelernt hat. Diese Worte würden mit Inhalt gefüllt, und es würde zudem ein deutliches Zeichen gesetzt, wenn durch eine Aufkündigung des geplanten größten Ölabkommens aller Zeiten zwischen einem europäischen Unternehmen und den Mullahs zumindest der Versuch unternommen wird, die atomaren Ambitionen des Irans zu stoppen.

Aus einem neueren:
Shmuel Katz writes in his article: “The Jewish state is in greater danger than any time since the 1948 War of Independence. The danger stems not from current Arab violence, nor the threat of future violence. It lies in the convocation of the Annapolis conference conceived and promoted with almost frenetic enthusiasm by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice…”
