  1. ZEIT ONLINE Israels Albtraum – Im Nahen Osten droht eine militärische Konfrontation mit Iran. Hauptgrund dafür sind Teherans Nuklearambitionen  Von Joschka Fischer
    Die Gefahr einer weiteren großen militärischen Konfrontation schwebt über dem Nahen Osten wie eine dunkle Wolke. Warum? Weil eine verfehlte amerikanische Politik im Irak die Feinde der USA und ihrer Verbündeten in der Region gestärkt und nicht geschwächt hat. Vor allem Iran – immerhin ein Mitglied der Achse des Bösen! – wurde durch die amerikanische Politik in eine hegemoniale Rolle gehievt, die er aus eigener Kraft kaum und vor allem nicht in so kurzer Zeit hätte erreichen können.
    Dadurch wurde ein latent immer schon vorhandener Hegemonialkonflikt im Nahen Osten in einen offenen Kampf um die regionale Vorherrschaft verwandelt. Die beiden Hauptkontrahenten der Region sind Iran und Israel, das sich – erstaunlich genug – in einer objektiven Allianz mit Saudi-Arabien befindet. Sowohl Israel als auch Saudi-Arabien fühlen sich durch den Aufstieg Irans zum regionalen Hegemon existenziell bedroht. Es sind heute im Nahen Osten neue Allianzen entstanden: Iran, Syrien, Hisbollah, Hamas und bizarrerweise die schiitisch dominierte irakische Regierung, die zugleich auch von den USA unterstützt wird, stehen gegen Israel, Saudi-Arabien und die meisten der anderen sunnitisch-arabischen Staaten.

    The Walls of Auschwitz – A Review of the Chemical Studies by Nicholas Kollerstrom, PhD  
    In his essay, Dr Nicholas Kollerstrom argues that the alleged massacre of Jewish people by gassing during World War II was scientifically impossible.
    The distinguished academic was dismissed on April 22, 2008 without any explanation and a Holocaust conference held on 16-18 May in Berlin refused his article and warned that he would be arrested if he attended the conference and presented his essay.
    The West punishes people for their scientific research on Holocaust but the same western countries allow insults to prophets and religious beliefs…
    I. The Leuchter Report, 1988
    In February 1988, Fred Leuchter came to the Auschwitz crematoria ruins, with his wife and a team, and took 32 samples chiseled out of the wall. His Report published in April of 1998 contained five maps as appendices which indicated where the samples had been taken from, and in addition a film was made of his sampling‘. The locations are important, because some of the ‚gas chamber‘ locations are postwar-reconstructed, and the obtaining of original brickwork was essential for his purpose.

  5. FORWARD  Making Iran Into a Jewish Issue Is Fueling an Unhealthy Debate  The Continental Divide – Eric Frey
    RAILING: The Stop the Bomb alliance has summoned memories of the Holocaust to criticize the state-owned Austrian oil and
    When shareholders of the Austrian oil and gas company OMV met in Vienna May 14 for their annual meeting, they were met by a small group of noisy protesters from Stop the Bomb, a mostly Jewish alliance opposed to OMV’s business dealings with Iran. Just 10 days earlier, the alliance held a conference in the Austrian capital where it warned that Iran was seeking an atomic bomb to launch a second Holocaust against the Jewish people — and that companies like OMV were helping Tehran in its quest.

      Washington/Jerusalem (Reuters) – US-Präsident George W. Bush hat Präsidentschaftsbewerber Barack Obama eine Appeasement-Politik gegenüber dem Iran vorgeworfen und damit in der Demokratischen Partei einen Sturm der Entrüstung ausgelöst.
      In einer Rede vor dem israelischen Parlament verglich Bush Obamas Aufruf zu Gesprächen mit der Regierung in Teheran mit der Politik Großbritanniens gegenüber Adolf Hitler vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg.

Jahrestag der Unabhängigkeit Israels benutzt, um eine unaufrichtige politische Attacke zu reiten“, klagte Barack Obama. Weil Bush am Donnerstag ausgerechnet beim wichtigen verbündeten Israel Obamas Gesprächsangebot an „Schurkenstaaten“ in die Nähe des Nazi-Appeasements gerückt hatte, brach unter US-Demokraten ein Sturm der Entrüstung los.

    IRAN: Tehran accuses West of waging war on its turf
    Washington’s and Tehran’s allegations against each other have a curious symmetry.
    Each side blames the other for causing unrest in the region. Both huff and puff through the media. They make arrests. They claim confessions. They point to unspecified evidence, which they never make public.
    After weeks of facing escalating allegations that it was arming and training insurgents in Iraq to fight U.S. military forces, Iran is now stepping up its own allegations that the U.S. and Britain were behind a recent attack on a mosque in southern Iran.
    This week judiciary spokesman Ali-Reza Jamshidi announced that Iran planned to file international lawsuits against the U.S. and Britain for backing insurgents allegedly involved in the bombing of the mosque that killed 13 people during a religious ceremony.

  14. RIA Novosti Iran verärgert über Russlands Sanktionsbeschluss – „RBC Daily“
    MOSKAU, 12. Mai (RIA Novosti). Am 7. Mai brachte der iranische Botschafter in Russland, Gholamreza Ansari, die Hoffnung zum Ausdruck, dass Dmitri Medwedew als neuer Präsident die „goldene Periode“ in den Beziehungen zwischen Teheran und Moskau fortsetzen werde, schreibt die Zeitung „RBC Daily“ am Montag.
    Doch einen Tag später wurde der Erlass über Maßnahmen zur Erfüllung der Iran-Resolution des UN-Sicherheitsrats Nr. 1803 vom 3. März bekannt gegeben, den der mittlerweile aus dem Amt geschiedene Präsident bereits am 5. Mai unterzeichnet hatte. Dieses Dokument bedeutet, dass Russland sich zum dritten Mal den Wirtschaftssanktionen gegen Iran angeschlossen hat. Als Ausnahme gelten nur Anlagen, Materialien und Technologien für Leichtwasserreaktoren, die für den Abschluss des Baus des Atomkraftwerks Bushehr notwendig sind.

  15. RIA Novosti Medwedew und Iran: Süße Last der Nachfolgerschaft
    MOSKAU, 14. Mai (Pjotr Gontscharow, RIA Novosti). Aus geheimen Aufzeichnungen: „Ich will es Ihnen gleich sagen, Dmitri Anatoljewitsch, Iran ist nicht gerade ein Geschenk des Himmels.“
    „Ja, Wladimir Wladimirowitsch, es ist nun einmal nicht anders. Aber Ihre Idee mit den Sanktionen – das war ganz große Klasse. Sollen die sich jetzt Gedanken machen.“
    Die Anordnung Wladimir Putins in den letzten Tagen seiner Präsidentschaft „Über Maßnahmen zur Erfüllung“ der Resolution des UN-Sicherheitsrates Nr. 1803 – zu Iran – hat viele aufhorchen lassen. Schließt sich Russland den Sanktionen an? Soll das heißen, dass Russlands Iran-Politik unter dem neuen Präsidenten merklich zugunsten des Westens korrigiert wird?

    Mohammad-Hassan Rahimian, representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei at the Islamic Revolution Martyrs Foundation, said in Beijing yesterday to mark Israel’s 60th anniversary that Hizbullah had proven the vulnerability of Israel’s Zionist regime by its heroic resistance, which had led to the humiliating defeat of the Zionist enemy.
    He said, „Today we are witnessing the destabilization of the Quds- [Jerusalem-] occupying regime, thanks to the path laid by the late Imam Khomeini, and the goal to annihilate Israel has been met by 50 percent…. The late Imam Khomeini declared that Israel should be wiped off the map, and now we are almost approaching this point.“
    He added that the issue of Palestine did not belong to the Palestinian nation and the Arab world alone, but concerned the entire world of Islam and the Muslims.

  29. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOG Friday Sermon: Iran’s Nuclear Package To Foster Global Peace; Hizbullah Owes Victory To Muslim Unity; Bush’s Claims About Iran Endangering Region Aimed At Desensitizing Arabs To Israel
    Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani
    In his Friday sermon, Tehran interim Friday prayer leader Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani said that the recent victories of Hizbullah in Lebanon against the Zionist regime belonged to the whole Islamic world, not just the Shi’ite community, and that all Muslims should be proud of Hizbullah.
    He said Hizbullah owes its victory today to unity among all Muslims, and that Muslims in turn must take that into consideration.“To Iran, there is no difference between Shi’ites and Sunnis.“
    Likewise, he noted, when an Islamic country achieves some scientific, political, economic or military gain, others must consider it an honor for the whole Islamic world, and that Iran’s nuclear accomplishments were a source of honor for the whole world of Islam. He added, „Any time a warrior in any corner of the Islamic world takes a step against Israel, other Islamic countries are expected to honor it.“
    He added that Iran’s proposed nuclear package is aimed at restoring peace and security worldwide.
    Touching on recent claims by U.S. President George W. Bush that Iran endangers the region, Kashani said, „Bush’s goal in raising these claims is to portray Iran as an enemy of the regional states and making the Arabs less sensitive to the Zionist regime.“ He said that it was precisely Iran’s sincerity and engagement with the countries of the world, especially the Muslim countries and the countries of the region that had led Bush to make such statements.
    He said that gestures by some political officials in the Islamic world were serving the interests of the U.S. and Israel, and that „Muslim states are expected to think of their own nations.“
