Mit ‘Kagame’ getaggte Beiträge

Having spread my new article “Africa: Crisis in Burundi? What´s Behind the Whole Turmoil?” (https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/africa-crisis-in-burundi-whats-behind-the-whole-turmoil/) via Twitter I found a diffuse answer by a Rwandan Tweep:

butera-tweets

I checked the Twitterer and found an alarming Tweet from the 14th of October:

butera-s-death-threat

In deed he seems to speak out a death threat against Human Rights Watch critics of Rwanda´s Kagame-Regime, saying „With these obsessive attacks on #Rwanda @hrw and @KenRoth confirm their death; they need holy transformation to resurrect, #HRWLies“! This could just be seen as „blabla“ if there wouldn´t be good reasons to believe that the Kagame regime murders_opponents like Col Patrick_Karegeya, former intelligence chief, in South Africa, or attemped to do so like with General_Nyamwasa also in South Africa. But the regime obviously doesn´t stop with Rwandan countrymen (dubbed as traitors) but takes at foreigners as well everywhere. Kagame seems to have had a hand also in the death_of_Komla_Afeke_Dumor, BBC Presenter of Ghanain origin (I_have_written_about_this_in_2015).

The strategy behind this appears to be: always deny, but let opponents be aware that we can reach them anywhere! Quote of Rwanda´s Minister of Defense, James Kabarebe:

Do not waste your time on reports that so and so was strangled with a rope on flat 7 in whatever country…When you choose to be a dog, you die like a dog, and the cleaners will wipe away the trash so that it does not stink for them. Actually, such consequences are faced by those who have chosen such a path. There is nothing we can do about it, and we should not be interrogated over it.

from: https://www.hrw.org/news/2014/01/28/rwanda-repression-across-borders

It follows patterns practiced by Kagames US masters, as spoken out by former_acting_CIA_director_Morell, and by Israel. This is called TERROR!

It´s up to critical journalists and analysts to be brave and stay upright against the Terror regime of Kagame and his attempts to intimidate critics!

rwanda-burundi

Every now and then “News” are propping up in the Western Media about Burundi indicating “Repression” and “misconduct” by the government. Even the UN is accusing the Burundian government of human rights violations and else. In September the New_York_Times writes about the UN condemning the Government with President Nkurunziza of “crimes against humanity”. It “reports” the crisis would have heated “when Mr. Nkurunziza announced his intention to run for a third term – a violation of Burundi´s Constitution”. Well, even BBC_had_to_admit that Burundi´s Supreme court decided the running for a third term would be legal since the first term started under extraordinary circumstances, being appointed by parliament in course of the Arusha agreements and not being elected in a popular vote.

Long Live the Double Standard!

The Western smear campaign against Burundi and Nkurunziza is the more astonishing since Western darling Presidents in Burundi´s surrounding are not respecting any limitation for their number of terms. Uganda´s President Yoweri_Museveni is on top since more than 30 years. Rwanda´s President Paul_Kagame, who invaded Rwanda with his RPF from Uganda and with heavy US support, is President since 2000 and has no limitation in terms (he must be suspected for ruthlessly murdering_critics abroad). DR Congo´s Joseph_Kabila is President since 2001. In Western media usually not many words are dropped about this when hitting on Burundi´s government. But it´s the same when it comes to other “good friends” of the West like for example the “lighthouse of Democracy” in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia. So what is the reason for Western hostility towards Burundi?

Much of Western rhetoric relates to the (fake) mainstream narrative on the tragedy in Rwanda shouting “genocide under way”, a dangerous alarmism of which the Guardian warned in 2015. All that though Burundis_real_social_divide_is_urban_and_rural. But Burundi´s problems might in fact have a lot to do with Rwanda, but in a different way than insinuated by the media. And Burundi´s government stands_in_the_way_of_the_US as Ann Garrison points out correctly.

The US Empire, “Their Man” Kagame and the Plunder of Congo

23 years ago the US Empire has installed the henchman Paul Kagame in Rwanda with a bloody war of aggression waged by the Uganda based RPF and decorated this with a monumental disinformation campaign making the world believe that the former Rwandan government would have planned a “Genocide against the Tutsi”. It was rather a Genocide against the Hutu majority. For the history of that tragedy read:

Half the Truth is a whole Lie! 20 Years of brazen Desinformation!https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/04/20/rwanda-half-of-the-truth-is-a-whole-lie-twenty-years-of-brazen-desinformation/

There is no doubt that the “Scramble for Africa” is going on and that Rwanda´s RPF regime is playing an essential part in it, as Robin Philpot correctly portrays in his book “Rwanda_and_the_New_Scramble_for_Africa”, likewise described by Finian_Cunningham. Coltan, Uranium, Cobalt, Gold diamonds and copper are “waiting for plunder”. Especially the US military is busy “winning_Africa”. Even the “Economist” though upholding the fake Western narrative about Rwanda´s tragedy admits the unholy role of Rwanda and ethnic Tutsis in DR Congo in an article of 2012.

An important role plays the rebel_group_M23 mostly made up of ethnic Tutsis, who were integrated into the Congolese army. Fights between_the_Congolese_army_and_M23 went also on this year. Despite the defection of Tutsi fighters to those rebel groups there is still Tutsi dominance said to prevail in DR Congo´s army. An example was also Laurent_Nkunda, and an example for the close relationship to the US via US Christian sectarianism as well.

The crisis sharpens obviously again in DR Congo, especially in the Kasai region (see links below). Trough the “complicated” conflicts “Big Brothers” hand (“well trained” in steering ethnic conflicts) is shining. The US Power Elite has long lasting experience in such operations also in the Middle East and the Balkans.

Possibly the Geo-Strategic Clou to the Story

In February 2016 it became obvious that Rwanda_is_recruiting_as_well_as_training_and_arming_Burundian_rebels in order to destabilize_Burundi and oust_the_Burundian_President. This most probably has the aim to plunge Burundi into chaos and sharpen ethnic conflicts, and then for Kagame and his RPF to appear as the “savior” of the Burundian Tutsi! Surely with the aim of installing a Tutsi dominated regime and possibly uniting the two countries, restituting a “glorious Tutsi Reign”.

What could be the further aims of Kagame and his US masters? Well, it might silence the slowly developing skepticism about Kagame´s role in Congo and fix again the “Genocide against the Tutsi” narrative. But much more important: it would broaden Kagame´s power basis for his plunder of the DR Congo in favor of Western resource policy. And a Coltan_processing_plant is built in cooperation with a Canadian Company in Rwanda, where_no_Coltan_is_to_be_found. Coltan is in Congo. But Rwanda is the World´s biggest Coltan exporter, guess how?!

Is it very absurd to speculate that Kagame´s plan (and that of his US masters) might be to unite Rwanda and Burundi for a broader power basis and thereafter split the Eastern part of DR Congo off, using militant Tutsi groups in Congo? If that costs thousands of lives in Burundi and more millions of lives in Congo, do you think the US Power Elite dominated by the US_Neocons_and_their_think_tanks would bother?

African Struggles in Perspective“: https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/african-struggles-for-social-justice-freedom-and-democracy-in-perspective-reflected-in-a-series-of-articles/

Wachsende Spannungen in der Zwischenseenregion Afrikas und unsere Verantwortung

burundi-map

Dieser Brief ging in ähnlicher Fassung im Januar d. J. an die Kanzlerin, den Außenminister und den Minister für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit, ohne je einer Antwort gewürdigt zu werden!

Sehr geehrte Frau Bundeskanzlerin,

insbesondere angesichts der immer noch dramatischen Flüchtlingskrise erlaube ich mir, Sie auf bedrohliche Entwicklungen in Afrika anzusprechen, die zwar wohl nicht kurzfristig zur Flüchtlingsbewegung nach Deutschland beitragen könnten, langfristig aber sehr wohl diese Bewegungen verstärken würden. Diese Entwicklungen bergen auch die Gefahr vieler weiterer Toter und ungeheuren Leides in der Afrikanischen Zwischenseenregion und darüber hinaus in sich. Über eine Million Tote in Ruanda und mindestens sechs Millionen Tote im Kongo innerhalb der letzten zwei Jahrzehnte gehen im Wesentlichen auf das Konto Kagames, Musevenis und damit auch ihrer westlichen Unterstützer, sprich der US-Politik (http://tinyurl.com/obw5kze).

Auch die neuen Gefahren gehen tatsächlich wieder von der Kagame-Regierung Ruandas aus. Grundlage für dieses ungestrafte Treiben ist die „offizielle“ mediale Darstellung zur jüngsten Geschichte Ruandas und der DR Kongo. wie auch zu Burundi. Diese ist vorsätzlich irreführend, wie z. B. der ehemalige Mitarbeiter des BMZ, Dr. Helmut Strizek, akribisch herausgearbeitet hat:

 http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/3631605633?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Ungeachtet der Unterstützung der US-Politik für das Kagame-Regime ist deutsche Politik sicher auch auf eigene realistische Einschätzungen der Situation angewiesen, insbesondere dann, wenn das Wort von der Bekämpfung der Fluchtursachen Anspruch darauf erhebt, ernst genommen zu werden. Deutschland hat wahrlich das verbrecherische Treiben von Paul Kagame schon viel zu lange unterstützt.

Kagames Regierung schreckt jedenfalls nicht vor Zwangsrekrutierungen von Exil-Burundiern in bewaffnete Gruppen zur Destabilisierung Burundis zurück (https://soundcloud.com/ann-garrison/flashpoints-rwanda-conscripts), wie auch der Putschversuch im Mai 2015 in Burundi fraglos auf Ruanda zurückgeht. Kagame hat mit diktatorischem Druck die verfassungsmäßigen Begrenzungen seiner eigenen Präsidentschaft ausgehebelt, nutzt aber die tatsächlich falschen Anschuldigungen des Verfassungsbruches gegen den burundischen Präsidenten zur Erhöhung der Spannungen. Wäre es nicht so gefährlich, wäre es eine Farce zu nennen.

Was tatsächlich weiter droht, ist die brandgefährliche Eskalation in Burundi, möglicherweise, um dann die in der etablierten Darstellung auf den Kopf gestellte Tragödie Ruandas zu wiederholen, sie ebenso verzerrt darzustellen und wenn nicht sogar für einen Zusammenschluss der beiden Länder Ruanda und Burundi zu sorgen, so doch mindestens, um Burundi unter die „Obhut“ Kagames zu stellen. Das Ganze mit dem Ziel, die Machtbasis für Kagames „nutzenden Zugriff“ auf die DR Kongo im Interesse internationaler Wirtschaftsinteressen zu festigen und das Leid auch im Kongo fortzusetzen. Ich bitte in diesem Zusammenhang inständig, sich der Kompetenz von Herrn Dr. Strizek zu versichern!

Ich möchte aber über diese spezielle Frage hinausgehen und auf etwas hinweisen, dass uns als Deutschen mit der bekannten Vergangenheit im ehrlichen Sinne des „nie wieder“ wahrlich am Herzen liegen sollte, um uns nicht erneut schuldig zu machen. Dabei geht es um die Haltung und die Konzepte zumindest der Neocons innerhalb der US-Machtelite. Wie stark der Einfluss der Neocons auch auf die demokratische US-Regierung ist, dafür steht u. a. ja Victoria Nuland, die seinerzeit von Hillary Clinton in die Obama-Regierung geholt wurde. Nulands Ehemann, Robert Kagan, ist Mitbegründer des „Project for the New American Century“.

Auf diese Initiative geht das Papier „Rebuilding America´s Defenses“ aus dem September 2000 zurück (Autor u. a. Paul Wolfowitz). Dort findet sich auf S. 60 eine besonders bedrohliche Passage zu möglichen Konzepten der US-Politik in Afrika (und Asien):

And advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.“

https://de.scribd.com/doc/9651/Rebuilding-Americas-Defenses-PNAC

Übersetzt heißt das: „Und fortgeschrittene Formen der biologischen Kriegsführung, die auf bestimmte Gentypen „zielen“ könnten die biologische Kriegsführung aus dem Reich des Terrors zu einem nützlichen politischen Instrument wandeln.

Hier geht es sicher nicht um den Genotypus des weißen Angelsachsen, sondern Afrika und Asien sind im Visier! Es handelt sich um die direkte Fortsetzung der Träume von der „schwarzen Bombe“ im „Project Coast“ des damaligen Apartheid-Regimes, um „biologischen Rassenkrieg“ ( http://tinyurl.com/bq34prg)!

Wenn einflussreiche Kreise der US-Politik sich solchen Träumen hingeben, sollten wir  in Deutschland tatsächlich alarmiert sein, zumindest, wenn das erwähnte Nachkriegsmotto „nie wieder“ noch irgendeinen Wert haben sollte!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Andreas Schlüter

https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/crimes-on-congo-part-1-from-destruction-to-destroyed-independence/

location-of-rwanda

On Monday 7th of April the commemorations on the „Genocide“ in Rwanda took place. Putting Genocide in quotation marks might give me the smell of a „denier“ of unspeakable human sufferings, but continuing to read this article with an open mind will drive that smell away.

Yes, twenty years ago something terrible happened in Rwanda and unspeakable crimes were perpetrated on hundred thousands of innocent people. But when people speak of the „Genocide“ in Rwanda they always mean genocide on the Tutsi! Yes, social divisions errupted into a monumental slaughter, not by itself but by an invasion and a terrorist shooting down of a plane! And additionally to 280,000 Tutsi victims there where about 750,000 Hutu victims to be mourned.

rwanda-provinces

Intrusion:

Like all continents Africa – the more as it is the cradle of Mankind – has its history of peoples migrations. Many regions saw a mixing but also superimpositions by very different ethnic entities and different economic systems, such is the case with the Central African Inter-Lake region, i. e. Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. The oldest identifiable ethnicity are the Twa, a group of short statured hunters and gatherers. Since more than 3,000 years Bantu speaking agriculturists immigrated into the region, by and large constituting the Hutu. During the 14th Century cattle nomads came, the Tutsi, establishing feudal empires (Nomads being used to competition over water and grazing grounds were always nearer to the art of war and thus dominated often when confronted with agriculturists). Like the Twa they adopted the language of the Hutu. In case of mixed marriages the children belonged to the fatherly group. Feudalism grew even more repressive under colonialism. The Germans supplemented the division between the tall and more sharp nosed Tutsi on one side and the Hutu on the other side by a racist concept ascribing „racial superiority“ to the Tutsi, a concept which was taken over by the Belgians. Though the division had become more and more a social one instead of a physical one the racist concept pleased the onliving claim for power of the Tutsi aristocracy.

Decolonization: End of the Monarchy, „One Man, One Vote“

Under German and Belgian colonial rule the two Tutsi kingdoms Rwanda and Burundi were administered together as Ruanda-Urundi. In 1956 Ruanda gained Autonomy. In 1961 rising tensions forced a referendum whether Monarchy should last. This resulted in Ruanda gaining independence as a Republic in 1962 which ended the dominance of the Tutsi (13%). The loss of power frustrated the Tutsi nobility and made many leave the country and moving to Uganda.

Similar tensions grew higher in Burundi resulting in a massacre in 1972 on the Hutu majority leaving about 250,000 of them dead. Coups and assassinations accompanied the further conflicts. 1993 a Hutu, Melchior Ndadaye, was elected President but murdered in October by Tutsi soldiers. He was followed by Cyprien Ntaryamira who was elected by the Parliament. Nobody has called the mass killing of Hutu in Burundi in 1972 a genocide!

In Rwanda the Minister of Defence, Juvénal Habyarimana, seized power from his cousin Grégoire Kayibanda in 1973. The country regained some stability.

The Invasion

But the Tutsi aristocracy was making plans to restore its rule in Rwanda. Many of them had joined the Ugandan armed forces. They formed the „Rwandese Patriotic Front“ (RPF) in 1987. Decicive in this development was Paul Kagame, member of the Tutsi aristocracy and head of the Ugandan Secret Service. His final „polishing“ he got in the USA in the Command and Staff College in Fort Leavenworth:

http://wikipedia.atpedia.com/en/articles/c/o/m/Command_and_General_Staff_College_50fe.html.

To be rightfully called a US agent (http://www.whale.to/c/paul_kagame.html) he was part of a first attempt to invade and reestablish Tutsi reign in Rwanda by the RPF and Ugandan forces in 1990. Though leaving many people dead and spreading terror in the North of Rwanda and initiating streams of refugees they were thrown back by the Rwandan Forces (with French assistance, France wasn´t yet integrated in the US strategy and following its own interest). But a brutal guerilla warfare mostly against the rural Hutu people was continued by the RPF. The efforts to end the conflict resulted in the Arusha accords. There are tendencies to smear Habyarimana with having sabotaged it. The former German diplomat Helmut Strizek demonstrates in his book „Clinton am Kivu-See“ (http://library.fes.de/pdf-files/ipg/2011-3/13_rezensionen.pdf) how baseless those accusations are.

The Beheading of two States

It was the RPF resorting to bloody violence again and starting another invasion. This step was accompanied by the shooting down of the plane with the Rwandan President Habyarimana and the Burundian President Ntaryamira on the 6th of April 1994. There is plenty of evidence that this was done by the RPF with support from the US and the Ugandan president Museweni as Strizek and others show. The war of aggression waged by the RPF did not only cost many Hutu lifes but provoked also violence against many Tutsi being suspected of collaborating with the invaders. No doubt that terrible crimes were also committed on innocent Tutsi. But there is evidence that agent provocateurs of the RPF were pushing those atrocities. One should imagine a fascist white organization trying to reestablish Apartheid in South Africa. Surely the masses would run wild from fear.

Who were the victims?

But the majority of the victims were not Tutsi. After all Strizek and others estimate the relation of Tutsi victims to Hutu victims of 280,000 to about 750,000 (Strizek 2011, p. 148). But the RPF had a „trick“: they counted who ever they could as Tutsi, where this wasn´t possible the victims were counted as „moderate Hutu“ slaughtered by „Hutu extremists“.

From Genocide to Genocide

With the victory of the RPF in Rwanda the slaughter didn´t end at all. Many more Hutu were butchered. Hundred thousands of them had fled to those day Zaïre (now Democratic Republic of the Congo ). Congo had a terrible history of colonial murders and plunder (http://tinyurl.com/b5jown9). After having killed the visionary Lumumba they´d installed their puppet Mobutu Sese Seko who by the time run “out of order” and ruined the country so far that even the exploitation of its resources became difficult for the West. Portraying the refugees as a threat the RPF-Rwanda and Uganda invaded Zaire, the RPF installing Laurent-Désiré Kabila as the new head of Congo in 1997 in the socalled First Congo War. But Kabila remembered that he´s Congolese and demanded that foreign troups should leave the country and revised a number of agreements. Rwanda created a new rebel military movement called the Rassemblement Congolais pour la Democratie (RCD) to fight Kabila, Uganda formed a new rebel movement called the Movement for the Liberation of Congo (MLC), headed by the Congolese warlord Jean-Pierre Bemba thus starting the Second Congo War. Angolan, Zimbabwean and Namibian military supported the central government of Kabila. Hundreds of thousands Hutu refugees were butchered by Rwandese forces. But the bulk of the victims were Congolese. In 2001 Laurent Kabila was assassinated under strange circumstances (http://tinyurl.com/kvgua3k). His son Joseph Kabila followed him and brought in direct “international” involvement, the MONUC, now known as MONUSCO, African armies exept the Rwandan had left the country by June 2003. Direct Western presence was established. How far elections in 2006 and 2011 (wich left Kabila in office) can rightfully be called true elections is questionable. Questionable is also whether the conservatives estimations of the up to 5,400,000 victims are “sufficient”. According to the International Rescue Commitee only up to 2004 up to 3,900,000 people died in Congo (http://tinyurl.com/l27e8jl) It appears realistic to number the victims until today to the extend of those having died under King Leopold II of Belgium, 8 to 10 million! This is a true Genocide on the Congolese people organized by the Kagame regime and its US backers!

Colonialism in Congo is Back!

Much of the situation in Congo reminds of China before its revolution, since no one can talk of a souvereign country. There is no perspective and security for its inhabitants. Western countries and local neighbours (in this case mostly acting on behalf of the West) are plundering the rich resources (Coltan for computers, copper, Uranium, Diamonds and Gold). Rwanda´s Kagame regime is using “rebel organizations” like the March 23 Movement headed by warlords to organize slave labor for the extraction and channeling the riches through its own country, creating a pseudo boom at the price of the destruction of Africa´s heart, the Congo!

Another misuse of the Holocaust

Since long Western politicians are misusing the unbelievable German crimes as a legitimation for more crimes. Israel´s racist and colonialist occupation policy claims to prevent another Holocaust, with massive backing especially by the US. And that worked to a certain extend since even some leftist movements are befuddled by such claims. Those forces did a lot to split anti-racist, anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist movements. Western mainstream media run high in propaganda and “rewriting” History, reducing Orwell´s “1984” almost into a good night story.

Whenever anti-imperialist movements were talking about Fascism in Western actions those forces were denouncing them as relativating Nazism. But no problem for Western politicians to equate unloved personalities of opposing states to Hitler, covering their wars of aggression as some sort of repetition of the Second World War. In fact the Rwanda “Genocide” was the “Masterpiece” of the US Power Elite. They pushed the powerthirsty Tutsi aristocracy to a war of aggression, leading to about a million dead people, claimed it to be the attempted genocide on the Tutsi and declared Kagame and his military bandits of the RPF to be the saints saving the Tutsi within Rwanda (for whom in reality they didn´t care at all).

The next step was to declare the Tutsi the “Jews of Africa”, a comparison so far from historical reality that one would have to laugh if the case wouldn´t be that sad! Some French “Revisionists” even went so far as to dubb the Hutu forces trying to resist the RPF invasion to be part of a “Nazisme Tropical” (Jean-Pierre Chrètien in Libération on 26th April 1994). A ready made plan of the Habyarimana government to extinct the whole Tutsi population was constructed by Western ideologists. Germans might have felt strange relief, “we´re not the only ones”, Westerners in general were attracted by old colonial stereotypes: those African barbarians have to be saved from their savage emotions, the white man has to save Africa from itself! Also the onliving racist concepts of the “noble Tutsi” might have done their part, not to forget Hollywood productions like “Hotel Rwanda “. But many times the polititians found more tactful expressions, “the international community”, those clinging to “Western values” have to do the job (of savin Africa)! And the bourgeois concept about Fascism was revived, portraying Fascism not as a means of capitalist policy under pressure in order to disciplin the workers, but claiming it to be a tendency of the dump masses, envying the wealthy people and getting hysterical.

For those who wanted to see, it became soon clear, the Conglese resources were the aim. But having established the concept of the African Holocaust, the Tutsi turned into the Jews of Africa, thus turning Kagame´s RPF-Rwanda into Africa´s Israel, who would dare to contradict in the World´s diplomatic discussions?!

Mourning the Dead

Indeed mankind has to mourn about a million of dead people in Rwanda, many of them innocent Tutsi. But we shouldn´t allow political gangsters to misuse the innocent Tutsi victims to cover the majority of the the Hutu victims and also not allow them to be misused to cover 8 to 10 million dead Congolese! We should mourn the victims of the Congolese Genocide as well. And the evil doers are Clinton, Albright, Museveni and last not least Kagame and their RPF gangs!

wanted-forAddition

Kagame and his entourage are the products of US Power Elite´s socalled “Soft Power Fraction” (http://tinyurl.com/bne6lnr) and their executive force, the Clinton administration of those days. He is clever enough to remeber Mobutu´s fate and to know that US agents are not safe forever. Having committed so many crimes which can not all be hidden forever from world public he´s preparing to build a “life boat” just building and strenghening ties also to the Neocons via AIPAC (http://tinyurl.com/lhocot3).

Andreas Schlüter, Jahrgang 1947, ist Diplom-Soziologe mit langer Erfahrung in der Bildungsarbeit. Er hat enge persönliche Bindungen an Afrika und seine verschiedenen Großregionen.

Noch in seiner Schulzeit ist er sich bewusst geworden, wie sehr Afrika (und weitere Teile der übrigen Welt) gezwungenermaßen zum hohen wirtschaftlichen Standard in der Weltgegend seines Aufwachsens durch Ausplünderung, Kolonialismus und Neo-Kolonialismus beigetragen hat. Eine wichtige Rolle hat in seinem Leben auch und gerade die Auseinandersetzung mit den deutschen Verbrechen und ihren Auswirkungen auf den Nahen Osten gespielt.

Er musste feststellen, dass mit dem Ende der Naziherrschaft Rassismus, Unterdrückung und Menschenverachtung nicht beendet waren.

 afrikahaus

Auf den ersten Blick scheinen diese beiden Themen „Nahostkonflikt“ und „Afrika“ nicht viel miteinander zu tun zu haben, aber es gibt vielfältige Verbindungen zwischen ihnen. Nicht nur, dass es zwischen Afrika und dem Nahen Osten eine lange geschichtliche Verknüpfung gibt, es sind auch beide Regionen von westlicher Dominanz und neoliberaler „Globalisierung“ zur Ausplünderung ihrer Rohstoffe schwer beschädigt. Darüber hinaus dient das Thema Nahostkonflikt interessierten Kreisen zu einer systematischen Spaltung in antiimperialistischen und antirassistischen wie generell linken Bewegungen.

Auf der einen Seite wird hinsichtlich der unglaublichen deutschen Verbrechen an den europäischen Juden gerne die Einzigartigkeits-These gepflegt, auf der anderen Seite wird bei Bedarf von interessierter Seite gerne die Parallele gezogen, so, wie man in den westlichen Medien zur Katastrophe in Ruanda die Tutsi zu den „Juden Afrikas“ erklärt hat, um Kagame und der ruandischen Regierung „freie Hand“ im Kongo zu geben. Man spricht vom „neuen Antisemitismus“, meint aber nicht die anschwellende Propaganda gegen die Mehrheit der Semiten, die Araber (die auch große Teile Nordafrikas bewohnen), und übersieht geflissentlich zionistisch radikalisierte junge Juden in Israel, die „Tod den Arabern“ grölen. Dafür erklärt man die Israel-Kritik aus der südlichen Hemisphäre (auch aus der afrikastämmigen Welt) eben zum „neuen Antisemitismus“. Dies und vieles mehr wird in dem Vortrag und der Diskussion behandelt werden.
