The German Christmas tree and ... whoops

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-12-25 11:38

What is that ugly metal contraption peeking out from behind the German National Christmas Tree standing in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin? Oh, it's a Jewish Menorah with a lighted Star of David.

Of all the eight images of "Christmas Trees around the World" posted at Deutsche Welle, Germany's is the only one with a menorah standing beside it.

That is so because Germany, in spite of inventing the lighted tree to celebrate its most beloved winter festival, is a hostage nation - hostage to the people of the Menorah. So the beautiful tree must share its place of honor with the grotesque giant candlestick representing the state of Israel. As recently written by a Spiegel essayist in English: "Israel's security is cemented as a fundamental principal of the German state." And this picture illustrates that so well.

Look for more on this subject from me in the new year. Merry Christmas!

Tattoo Criminals—Elie Wiesel should be investigated for holocaust fraud

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-12-23 17:04

The tattoo that, if seen by the public, will incite hatred for Jews, according to prosecutors and courts in Brandenburg, Germany. But why wouldn’t it incite sympathy just as well?

By Carolyn Yeager

In a Berlin court, a German man is convicted for having a tattoo resembling a concentration camp entrance on his body.

Why then is Elie Wiesel not convicted in Germany for not having a concentration camp tattoo on his body, but saying he does?

Wiesel was in Germany at least three times  impersonating a “nazi” concentration camp survivor. His first visit was in June 1986 when he spoke in Loccum, West Germany as the author of the book Night, which he claims to be a record his own experience. In Night, the main character is  tattooed with the number A7713 on his left forearm, which Elie claimed under oath in California is still there on his arm. Apparently, no one in Loccum asked to see it.

He returned the next year in November 1987 and spoke in a modern conference center inside the shell of the destroyed Reichstag. The title of his talk was “Reflections of a Survivor” in which he, as in the prior year, couldn’t keep from speaking words of blame toward the German people.  Continue reading ...

Pegida Weihnachtsliedersingen, 12-21-15

SENSATIONAL TURNOUT !!! Estimated 15 to 18,000

Also see: Pegida on Facebook for more pictures, news

From The Epoch Times

UPDATE: The Pegida venue was first changed to the Silesian square outside the station in Dresden Neustadt. At the last minute it became the Königsufer near the State Chancellery when the demonstration permit for the Silesian square went to another association, one described by Lutz Bachmann on Facebook as an "Antifa-Demo'".

At the Semperoper Plaza where Pegida has gathered from the very beginning, a different group was given permission for this date [apparently calling themselves “Dresden Nazifrei,” even though Pegida has nothing to do with Nazis]. According to The Epoch Times, at 5:30 pm a demo named "Heart Instead of Baiting" filled the square to about one-third, with people spread out with plenty of space betweem them. There was a video shown and about an hour of music and speeches by artists from the Semper Opera and the Schauspielhaus (as best I can understand). The antifa crowd was estimated at only 3,000 to 4,000.

Police in Germany are working overtime to deal with refugee violence.

Refugees? No, these are just emotion-ruled adventurous youth Merkel invited who are now causing grief and expense all over Germany. This is just one of many incidents happening now.

Hamelin, Germany. The District Court issued a warrant against two asylum seekers who set fire to a room in order to extort a furlough. Investigations have been started against two Lebanese men, 21 and 26 years of age, for aggravated arson. The Hamelin District's Tjark Bartels (SPD) confirmed the incident on Thursday. The two Lebanese wanted to return to their homes temporarily because of a death in the family.

Wohlleben statement brings up the role German domestic intelligence plays in the “right-wing scene"

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-12-16 11:52

Ralf Wohlleben  (entering court above) is a second defendant in the so-called NSU (National Socialist Underground) trial in Munich, along with Beate Zschäpe. He also provided a first statement to the court which was read today, Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Wohlleben is charged with providing weapons to Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Bohnhardt which were used to carry out nine murders of immigrants. According to an article in today's Deutsche Welle, Wohlleben denied providing such weapons.

Wohlleben's said he never had anything against foreigners but instead took issue with government policies that allowed so many immigrants to come to Germany. After spending some time in Frankfurt, he got the impression that there were areas "where no Germans lived anymore." Wohlleben said he didn't want to see the same thing happen to his own town of Jena in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR, or East Germany), and that's how he found his way into the right-wing scene.

Deutsche Welle launches an Arabic-language TV channel for all Europe

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2015-12-14 23:38

The DW Arabic-language channel is available across most of Europe beginning December 15, 2015

How timely. Wonder how long this has been in the works? Germany's state broadcaster aimed at an international audience is making it clear it thinks Arabs are in Europe to stay. The new channel will begin broadcasting tomorrow, December 15th.

The ostensible purpose is to help Arabic-speaking migrants learn what they need to know about Germany, in their own language. According to DW, the information is designed to help refugees deal with everyday life and visits to German administrative authorities, to find job opportunites and to learn German. The channel will transmit German language courses in television format.

Bobina and Tatjana speak at 12-14 Pegida Demo

Another massive and very enthusiastic crowd in Dresden on December 14, 2015.

Live stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrGzvb4Z-M0&app=desktop

Tatjana Festerling gives another powerful speech in defense of the German heart and soul.

From The Epoch Times, Dec. 14, 2015:

The motto of the demonstration is currently aimed against the  deployment of the Bundeswehr to Syria.

Pegida holds the refugee crisis to be a political conspiracy to destabilize Germany and the EU nations, based on publicly known US military doctrines. Lately, Pegida criticized the Syria-deployment of the Bundeswehr.

Pegida had said from the outset in their demands that war refugees must be given temporary protection. They are opposed to the admission of economic refugees and have a zero-tolerance policy towards asylum seekers and criminal extremists whose immediate expulsion it asks.

Crime and corruption accompanies Muslims into Europe

Islamic kindergarten in Vienna, Austria, government funded of course. Some ask the question: Why? But that's only part of the problem.

What else would you expect? Here are just three recent stories.

http://www.epochtimes.de/politik/europa/ermittlungsverfahren-eingeleitet-staatsanwaltschaft-millionen-betrug-bei-wiener-islam-kindergaerten-a1290930.html

In Vienna's Islamic kindergartens, subsidies worth millions were apparently embezzled. The office is investigating a man behind several support teams. The controversy over the Muslim Kitas has taken on a completely different dimension.

“FORMAT” reports that Abdullah P. has controlled kindergarten associations and created strawman reports to gain unwarranted funding.
Specifically, there is a suspicion of fraud, misuse of aid and falsification of tax office documents . "The state police commissioned surveys," says Thomas Vecsey, spokesman for the Vienna prosecutor's office, to "FORMAT".

To gain access to the funding, so-called public utility receipts were forged. These confirmations are issued by the tax office for associations. They are a precondition for the disbursement of stimulus funding and other kindergarten subsidies by the City of Vienna. According to FORMAT exclusively, the total estimated damage presently is for an amount in the euro seven-figure range.

Zschäpe statement expected to be read out in court tomorrow

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2015-12-08 12:11

Her newest defense attorney, Mathias Grasel confirmed this today, with the request that any questions by the court be given in writing. Any answers will also be given in writing after Grasel and Zschäpe [pictured right] consult over the weekend. It is my understanding that no one can be forced to answer questions in court.

The farce of this case

A previous article by Deutche Welle summing up the case so far had some strange sentences. Here are a few:

“Throughout the two and a half years of the trial over the NSU murders […] the trial itself has produced some answers, but by no means all.” Notice that it's called “the NSU murders” but sufficient evidence for this has still not been found in 2 ½ years (actually 4 years).

Belgium activists speak to thousands gathered in Dresden today

The scene in the Theaterplatz on the evening of December 7, 2015.

Live stream of today's PEGIDA rallyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXnCBsoRM1c

It is good weather in Dresden - windless and ten degrees plus. Christmas music plays. The visit of Belgians is not only from the two guest speakers, Filip Dewinter and Anke van Dermeersch of the Party “Vlaams Belang”. There is also seen a "We are the people" banner in Flemish.

6:45 Lutz Bachmann opened the rally:

"First of all, warm greetings to our patriotic brothers and sisters in France," he congratulates Marine Le Pen and the National Front for their "historic victory". That was a very clear signal, and the German press is foaming with rage. Therefore, the Front National will now be reviled - and with it their voters. This "30 percent of our neighbors occupied by right-wing" would now be labeled "right-wing". The ARD  had managed eleven times to accommodate the word right-wing in a three-minute report. "But there's the brown mob of the week!" said Bachmann.
