Swiss bank Holocaust payments now going to people whose accounts were never found

By Amiram Barkat

Martin Stern, a British-Israeli businessman who resides in Jerusalem, was surprised earlier this week to receive an announcement that he had been awarded $5,000. He was even more surprised to discover that the announcement came from the New York court handling claims for dormant Swiss bank accounts from the Holocaust era.

Stern's mother, Celia, filed claims six years ago for two bank accounts held by Stern's father and uncle. Celia died three years ago. Four months ago, Stern was informed that the claim had been rejected because the bank accounts had not been located.

But this week's announcement informed Stern that he would receive $5,000. The court ruled that the accounts probably existed, but the Swiss had destroyed the documents. Stern, an activist known for seeking restitution of Jewish property, discovered that in February of this year, the court decided to grant awards to 13,000 Jews in his position.

"I don't understand anything anymore," Stern said yesterday. "If they decided in February to compensate us, why did they hear my mother's case in June and reject it? Why did they wait six years, and why is distribution of the awards shrouded in secrecy?"

Professor Burt Neuborne, who represents the plaintiffs, said that a proposal to pay these awards was accepted five years ago. "The awards constitute symbolic recognition that these people had a just claim, but cannot prove it because the Swiss destroyed documents relating to 2.7 million accounts," he said.

The court's surprising generosity does not stop at handing out checks to plaintiffs whose cases were rejected. Claimants whose accounts were located, most of whom have received compensation, are slated to receive additional hundreds of millions of dollars soon. An internal report submitted to the court several months ago, a copy of which was obtained by Haaretz, suggests reevaluating the compensation sums retroactively.

The unpublished report submitted to U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman recommends distributing at least another $250 million. But Neuborne told Haaretz yesterday that the new evaluation could raise the sums paid to plaintiffs by as much as $400 million. This would allow the New York court to elegantly dispose of the hundreds of millions left in its coffers.

In 1998, Swiss banks transferred $1.25 billion to pay the heirs of dormant Holocaust-era account holders. With the process drawing to a close, it is now clear that this sum is nearly three times higher than the sum paid account holders.

With an astronomical $500 million still in those coffers as of June 2006, infighting over the money had already begun among the state of Israel, the Welfare Fund for Holocaust Survivors and world Jewish organizations. But attorney Helen Junz, who is in charge of handling claims for the court, had a different idea: Apparently, the monetary value of only 400 to 500 accounts was known. The remaining 3,000 accounts were "empty," and compensation was based on formulas devised by accountants.

Junz discovered that the holders of "empty" accounts received sums that were dozens of percent lower than the holders of accounts whose value was known, and she recommended that the court close the gap retroactively. Weeks ago, lawyers representing the state of Israel were told of this recommendation and hastened to file objections.

Attorney Kent Yalowitz of the Arnold and Porter law firm, who represents Israel, said the money the state is seeking is not slated for government ministries but for private organizations that help Holocaust survivors, first and foremost the Welfare Fund. "Recalculating the compensation will have ramifications for 100,000 needy survivors," he said.

Daniel Ganzfried, a Swiss journalist who has followed the affair from the outset, told Haaretz that these developments were to be expected. "The sum paid by the Swiss banks wasn't realistic and stemmed from political pressure. It is now clear that this was a bad deal morally."

Neuborne told Haaretz that he vehemently rejects any criticism of the efficiency of the Swiss banks arrangement. "The Swiss banks destroyed almost all documentation, and despite working like the blind, we managed to distribute $400 million to account holders. With the new evaluation, that sum will increase to $600, $700 or even $800 million. We have also distributed money to needy Holocaust survivors. A total of 400,000 people have received almost $1 billion from us."

Neuborne, who once said that he worked pro bono on the case, was recently the center of public outcry when he petitioned the court for $4.7 million in fees. The New York Times revealed that his work reports included inaccuracies such as 30 hours of work on a single day. Neuborne told Haaretz that the $6 million retainer he and other attorneys seek is less than one percent of the total sums awarded, far lower than the norm in similar cases.

The questions we should be asking is "Why do Jews always make out like bandits before, during and after wars?" "Why does war mean ruin for everyone but the Jew?" "Why was your Ukrainean grandma who was slave labor in a Nazi work camp for 13 years told it was "Too late" to get any reparations?"

Would be interesting to know how many checks (and for how much) the average Israeli finds in his mailbox everyday from some Money for Greedy Israelis scam.

Default If only the 'holohoax' survivors were never found

As if the kikes don't have enough of our money. Damn kikes want it all, and it looks like they are getting it. I read somewhere that the kikes in the 'kwa make up less than 3% of the population but own and/or control well over 50% of the wealth. If those European countries that expelled the jews hundreds of years ago had only known this would happen, they probably would have killed the kike bastards instead of giving them the boot.

Me and my wife used to bank with the old schweizerische Bankverein (now UBS).
When they decided to cave in to these outlandish Jewish claims, without even being forced to do so by law, I made an appointment and told them to close our accounts…and I gave them the reason.
Not that it made much difference to their annual results.

Default TWO KOSOVO ALBANIANS RAPED 5-year old Swiss girl

This is the thanks the Swiss get for supporting TurkoAlbanian scum.


Quote:
TWO KOSOVO ALBANIANS RAPED 5-year old Swiss girl

BERN (Associated Press)-- Switzerland remained shocked Wednesday the shortly after the publication of the rape of a five year old young girl by schoolboys of 11 and 13 years made in June in the Grison commune of Rhazuns.

"It is alarming. One forever considering that", declared the Minister for Justice, confirming that the two perpetrators were Albanians from Kosovo.

For Christophe Blocher, who expressed itself in front of the press, it is about a "frightening event" and all must be implemented to prevent other sexual abuse of this kind.

The federal Office of the migrations will examine under what conditions the two child rapists lived. It will also be necessary to examine whether sexual reasons are really at the origin of this act, continued the minister.

The business of Rhazuns was approached Wednesday by the federal Council (government) in margin of his meeting.

According to newspapers' Swiss German "Blick" and "Sudostschweiz", which made the public affair, the young girl was attracted into the neighbourhood park and then sexually mistreated by the two schoolboys. The small victim was held by the smaller boy when the 13 year old teenager violated her. The younger boy then also violated her.

All three lived in Rhazuns and knew each other. The prosecutor for minors of the canton of the Grisons, Albert Fausch, stated Tuesday that measures had been taken against the two boys, who do not attend any more the local school.

The procedure against the two boys is always in hand. For the punishable acts made by children of less than 15 years, the Swiss penal code envisages educational measurements. The authority of judgement can order the educational welfare, the family placement or the sending in a house of education. Disciplinary measurements, like the obligation with a school work or stops, are also possible.

Post UN genocide against the Swiss

"Switzerland has been defending its race relations record before a United Nations committee in Geneva on Monday.

Summing up, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination said there was room for improvement but the Swiss were motivated and taking the issue seriously. However anti-racism campaigners criticised a lack of progress."

"Switzerland's anti-racism record has been under the spotlight recently. During the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review in May 2008 the Swiss had to answer numerous questions about the "xenophobic climate" in Switzerland, "incitements to racial hatred by certain political parties" and "racist posters"."

jewsign Holocaust bank settlement "cleansed" Swiss

August 11, 2008 - 9:27 PM

Ten years after Swiss banks agreed to pay back assets to Holocaust victims, one of the deal's chief architects said it helped lift a cloud over the country.

But the $1.25 billion (SFr1.33 billion) settlement, sealed in 1998, also caused significant upheaval in Switzerland as the country faced allegations of colluding with Nazis during the Second World War.

When Jewish organisations again raised questions in the mid-1990s about dormant Swiss bank accounts containing the assets of Holocaust victims, nobody could predict the storm that was about to follow.

The pressure was ratcheted up when the United States administration joined the debate. Two investigations, one commissioned by the Swiss government, also uncovered evidence of Jewish refugees being turned away, Swiss companies profiting from the Nazi war machine and the central bank buying gold looted from Jews.

The final straw came in the shape of individual class actions launched in the US, claiming damages against Swiss banks.

"There was a very polarised and aggressive atmosphere with each side playing off against the other," Stuart Eizenstat, who represented the US government during the negotiations, told swissinfo. "This was a traumatic event for Switzerland and a shock to the whole psyche of the country."

Faced with allegations and threats of boycotts against Swiss business interests, the two biggest Swiss banks – UBS and Credit Suisse - released details of accounts belonging to Holocaust victims and to pay money back to descendants.

Government stays out

Another key to the decision may have been the merger of two Swiss banks to form UBS – a deal that required US regulatory approval.

"At the time UBS was merging, and to get this through in US it was not helpful to have these class actions about. It was a financial deal in the interest of all parties," Rolf Bloch, the then president of the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities, told swissinfo.

But while the banks negotiated their final settlement, the Swiss government and central bank stayed at arm's length from the process, having independently set up a SFr300 million humanitarian fund in 1997.

Eizenstat was particularly aggrieved that the Swiss government played no role in the banking settlement a year later. He felt that the central bank should have shouldered some of the costs.

"The national governments participated in the German, Austrian and French settlements. In Switzerland's case, the government and the central bank left it all to the private banks to bear the burden. I think that was inappropriate and unfortunate," he said.

Swiss "cleansed"

However, Eizenstat believes that the final $1.25 billion settlement was "fair and just".

By the end of June this year it had paid out all but $200 million to Jewish, homosexual, disabled, Jehovah's Witness and Roma Holocaust victims and their descendants. The pay-out process has been slowed by the many thousands of claims and the legal procedures employed to test their validity.

Bloch believes the payments have drawn a line under Switzerland's wartime past "financially, but not morally". But Eizenstat thinks the settlement has had a cathartic effect on the nation and helped push Swiss banks into cleaning up their record on money laundering.

"Part of the problem was Switzerland had been isolated from world public opinion and they did not appreciate how much this would turn against them. This cataclysmic event had a cleansing effect. The fact the Swiss finally came to terms with this has created positives for going forward," he said.

swissinfo, Matthew Allen

SWISS BANKS' SETTLEMENT

In 1995, Jewish groups demanded that Swiss banks release details of accounts suspected to belong to Holocaust victims. Swiss banking secrecy laws made this extremely difficult.

In 1996, a series of class action lawsuits filed in the US against Swiss banks sparked the creation of two commissions to look into Swiss wartime activities.

The Independent Committee of Eminent Persons uncovered tens of thousands of dormant Swiss bank accounts possibly belonging to Holocaust victims.

The Independent Commissions of Experts Switzerland, set up by the Swiss government, found evidence of the Swiss central bank buying Nazi gold and Jewish refugees being turned away from Swiss borders.

In 1997, the Swiss government, the Swiss National Bank and private firms set up a SFr300 million fund for Holocaust victims.

On August 12, 1998, UBS and Credit Suisse agreed to pay $1.25 billion to settle claims by Holocaust victims and their descendents. The fund is administered in the US.
WHERE THE $1.25 BILLION HAS GONE

The Claims Resolution Tribunal website (the body that awards payments), says that just over $1.05 billion of the settlement had been paid out to 448,703 recipients by the end of June this year.

Close to $490 million was paid to 16,601 people from bank accounts.

Some $205 million of looted assets were repatriated, nearly $300 million was paid to victims of forced labour and $11.6 million to refugees refused at Swiss borders. The remaining payouts are listed as "insurance" or "other".

Most of the recipients (349,885) were Jewish.

Default Turkoalbanian activities in Switzerland

Switzerland: Ethnic Albanians keep a grip on heroin supply

Ethnic Albanian criminal gangs continue to pose a serious security threat, dominating the transit and supply of heroin to Switzerland, warns a federal police expert.By Simon Bradley for swissinfo (27/08/08)


Three members of the same Kosovo family are currently on trial in Switzerland accused of operating one of Europe's largest heroin wholesale operations.

Prosecutors say the 69-year-old father and his two sons, aged 42 and 28, used their base in the southeast European country to import 1.5 tons of heroin from Turkey for sale elsewhere.

"[The clan] has been one of the principle suppliers of heroin in western Europe since the middle of the 90s," the prosecution claimed. The defendants deny all charges.

They went on trial in Switzerland because the brothers lived and worked there. A verdict by the Federal Penal Court in Bellinzona is expected at the end of October.

According to Roger Flury, an illegal drugs expert at the Federal Police Office, the seizure was very significant, even though it was split between different countries.

"1,500 kg - that's between 25 to 50 percent of what people consume in Switzerland in one year," he told swissinfo.

Significant threat
In its 2007 internal security report published in July the federal police said that "criminal organizations from southeastern Europe" played a "significant role" in Switzerland.

These internationally interlinked groups were involved in numerous criminal activities including drug and human trafficking, migrant smuggling, extortion, prostitution and money laundering, it stated.

According to the Vienna-based United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Switzerland has historically been singled out as one of the countries most affected by ethnic Albanian heroin trafficking, due to the large expatriate population.

There were an estimated 94,000 Albanian-speakers in Switzerland in 2000. In the late 1990s, Albanians were blamed for trafficking some 70 to 90 percent of Switzerland's heroin supply into the country.

"The influence of ethnic Albanian criminal groups is still very strong, especially in the heroin market, and it's not abating," said Flury. "The vast majority of heroin sold in Switzerland still transits via ethnic Albanian groups."

Other criminal groups involved in the trade in Switzerland are from Turkey, Croatia, Serbia West Africa and Iraq, he added.

But Theodore Leggett, author of a UNODC report entitled "Crime and its impact on the Balkans," felt the importance of ethnic Albanian criminal gangs was waning.

"They had a period of unprecedented access to European markets in the 1990s and early 2000s and took advantage of that, and others took advantage of them, but stopping speedboat traffic to Italy had a big effect. I don't think they're competitive [in the] long term," he told swissinfo.

Ethnic Albanian criminal gangs built up a reputation as effective traffickers as they were violent and clannish with a language nobody else could understand and had an honor code similar to the Sicilian mafia, explained Leggett.

"But I don't think this makes for a very competitive drug trafficking group in the long term, as violence attracts unwanted attention. What tends to happen with these Albanian crime groups is that they build up to a certain level, then they shoot each other over an honor issue, which undermines their place in the market."

Balkan route
Southeastern Europe lies along the most conventional route - the so-called Balkan route - between the supplier of some 82 percent of the world's heroin, Afghanistan, and its most lucrative consumer market, western Europe.

Today the Balkan route has split in three – a northern path (Afghanistan-Pakistan/Iran-Turkey-Bulgaria-Romania-Hungary), a central, original path (Afghanistan-Pakistan/Iran-Turkey-Bulgaria-Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia/Serbia-Bosnia and Herzegovina-Croatia-Slovenia-Italy) and a southern route (Afghanistan-Pakistan/Iran-Turkey-Bulgaria-Macedonia-Kosovo-Albania-Italy).

It is estimated that about 100 tonnes of heroin crosses southeastern Europe every year on its way to western Europe, of which 85 tons eventually makes it to the consumer, a flow estimated at US$25-30 billion, says UNODC.

Switzerland has a small domestic market. It's not a traditional redistribution point, like the Netherlands, but more a transit country, with traffickers taking advantage of the land and air connections.

"The Swiss police are quite good in stopping the stuff and make a lot of seizures, but it continues to be a place that a lot of traffickers favor," said Leggett.

Despite a stabilization in the world drugs market, in June the UN sounded the alarm about the recent surge in drug supply from Afghanistan, which may drive addiction rates up.

"We don't know exactly where this surge in heroin supply is headed. There's a belief that it's being stockpiled – getting banked," said Leggett.

But according to the Swiss police, Switzerland is already feeling this increase. Consumption is stable in Switzerland, but with decreasing prices and increasing purity levels, which are worrying indicators," confirmed Flury.

In 2007 seizures of heroin by Swiss police rose to 300kg from 230kg in 2006.

Unhappy more sad news

As if Africa is not a large enough continent to provide for the needs of the negros. Switzerland is about only half the size of Ireland and much of the terrain is too mountainous for settlements. "Half the current influx comes from sub-Saharan Africa" = HIV positive, AIDS.

"Asylum seekers put pressure on cantons
The number of asylum seekers arriving in Switzerland has risen sharply in the past few months, and some cantons say their shelters are bursting at the seams.

Half the current influx comes from sub-Saharan Africa, Eduard Gnesa, head of the Federal Migration Office told Swiss radio on Friday, with the greatest numbers coming from Eritrea, Somalia and Nigeria. Others have fled Iraq.

The reason for the influx is the worsening situation in the asylum seekers' home countries, he said."

Thumbs down Speaking out in favour of illegal immigrants

September 13, 2008 - 6:49 PM

An estimated 2,000 demonstrators have called on the authorities to grant illegal immigrants a temporary right to stay in Switzerland.

The protesters marched through the streets of the capital, Bern, on Saturday demanding an end to deportations of people without valid residence permits, including rejected asylum seekers.

The organisers, which are supported by the Green Party, said the policy of the government was not in line with the Council of Europe, which champions human rights.

The party also said illegal immigrants are a pillar of the Swiss economy but they have no possibility to integrate into society and have no legal protection.

There are at least 100,000 illegal immigrants – or Sans Papiers – who work without residence permits in Switzerland according to support groups.

Default Albanians guilty of drug smuggling

Quote:
Swiss court: 2 Kosovo men guilty of drug smuggling

By GABRIELLA BROGGI, Associated Press Writer Gabriella Broggi, Associated Press Writer – Thu Oct 30, 2:39 pm


ETBELLINZONA, Switzerland – Two brothers from Kosovo were convicted Thursday of running a massive drug smuggling ring that prosecutors said supplied Western Europe with up to half of its heroin.

Ragip and Kemal Shabani channeled 1.5 tons of heroin through Europe from the mid-1990s until 2003, when they were shut down, prosecutors said. They used a small town in Kosovo as their base with branches in Macedonia, Albania, Spain and the Czech Republic, according to the Federal Criminal Court.

The trial — considered one of Switzerland's largest-ever drug cases — was held under high security in the southern town of Bellinzona, with only some relatives and journalists allowed into the courtroom.

Judge Jean-Luc Bacher sentenced Ragip Shabani to 15 years in prison for breaking Swiss narcotics law, and ordered the 42-year-old to pay 300,000 francs ($261,400) in court costs.

Kemal Shabani, 28, was given only a two-year suspended sentence for participating in a criminal organization, and was charged 90,000 francs ($78,400) in court costs.

Defense lawyers said they would appeal the verdict, which also ordered that the Shabanis' assets be confiscated. The assets include five luxury cars and Kosovo properties such as houses, restaurants and shopping centers.

The court dropped a charge of money laundering for lack of evidence.

The brothers' father, 69-year-old Tariq Shabani, was acquitted in the case and was granted compensation of 47,000 Swiss francs ($41,000) for his time in custody during the investigation.

Bacher said the verdict took into account the fact that Switzerland had only partial jurisdiction in the case because much of the drug smuggling allegedly happened in other countries.

The Shabani clan had already come under suspicion in some countries before the 1998-99 Kosovo war, but it continued to operate after the territory was placed under U.N. administration, the indictment said.

A six-year investigation led to the arrest of Ragip Shabani in 2003 in Macedonia's capital of Skopje. His brother and father were arrested in Germany in 2005, according to the indictment.

Police across Europe confiscated 970 kilograms (2,140 pounds) of heroin during raids carried out from 1997 to 2003 in Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland and Kosovo, which is now an independent

Im sure that the Swiss liberals and media will be screaming about this 'racist' verdict against these poor albanian victims of Serbs.

Default Schweiz: Moralischer Sieg für die PNOS

Veröffentlicht am 3. Februar 2009

Schweiz: Drei ehemalige und zwei derzeitige Mitglieder des Bundesvorstandes mussten sich am 28. Januar in Aarau vor dem Bezirksgericht wegen mehrfacher Rassendiskriminierung sowie übler Nachrede verantworten. Ausgangspunkt dieser Justizfarce war der selbsternannte „Nazi-Jäger“ Heinz Kaiser, der mehrmals in Aarau bei der Polizei mit der Bitte vorstellig wurde, die PNOS endlich zu verbieten. Die PNOS wurde aber auch wegen dem Vertrieb eines Taschenkalenders sowie der Aussage, die Schläger der Antifa bewegten sich unter anderem in Dunstkreis der Jungsozialisten, vor den Kadi gezerrt.

Gestern Donnerstag wurde nun das Urteil verkündet: Die PNOS wurde vom Vorwurf der Rassendiskriminierung in zwei Fällen freigesprochen. Damit bleibt die Forderung, kulturfremde Ausländer auszuschaffen, völlig legal. Und sie bleibt in Anbetracht der ethischen Zerstörung der europäischen Völker auch völlig gerechtfertigt. Darüber hinaus konnte nicht nachgewiesen werden, dass der damalige Bundesvorstand am Vertrieb des Taschenkalenders beteiligt gewesen war. Grund des Anstosses war hierbei die Abbildung berühmter westlicher Politiker (diese allesamt mit Kippa), unterstrichen mit der Aussage: „Der Gessler-Hut der internationalen Politik: Müssen Politiker peinliche Kopfbedeckungen tragen? Alle unter einem Hut…“ Auch Schiffbruch erlitten hat das Ansinnen der Jungsozialisten des Kantons Bern, die PNOS mit Genugtuung und überrissenen Anwaltskosten eines bekannten “Rechtsanwaltes” aus Burgdorf in die Knie zu zwingen. Auf diese Anklage wurde nicht eingetreten.

Hingegen wurde die PNOS schuldig gesprochen, im Punkt 4 des alten Parteiprogramms Schweizer Rechte für Schweizer Bürger und somit die Unterstellung der Ausländer unter andere Gesetze gefordert zu haben. Zudem wurde ein ehemaliges Mitglied des Bundesvorstandes für ein Zitat eines Rassenbiologen schuldig gesprochen.

Die PNOS ist zufrieden mit dem Urteil. Nicht nur wurde die PNOS teilweise freigesprochen, sondern auch die Bussen wurden massiv heruntergestuft. Ob die PNOS gegen den Schuldspruch wegen des alten Parteiprogramms ans Obergericht gelangen wird, wird die PNOS nach Zustellung der Verurteilungen entscheiden und die Öffentlichkeit darüber in Kenntnis setzen.

Nichtsdestoweniger würde die Partei von einem demokratischen Rechtsstaat natürlich erwarten, die freie Meinung absolut zu schützen. Dass die grundlegende Kritik an der Menschenrechtsideologie in einem System, das auf dem Fundament der universalistischen Gleichheitslehre aufgebaut ist, hingegen zu harscher Gegenwehr führt, dafür scheint der Beweis mit dem Ausgang des Prozesses nun erbracht zu sein.

Default AIPAC punishes Swiss (again) for buying Iranian oil

http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2...bby-wants-war/

"The Lobby Wants War With Iran
by Justin Raimondo, May 01, 2009

The Israel lobby has been running into a few problems lately, but it’s nothing they don’t think they can handle: a charge of treason, a strong suspicion of obstructing justice, and a gathering storm of criticism from a few dissident intellectuals and policy types. Nothing to get too exercised about. Having felled Charles "Chas" Freeman, smitten Gen. Zinni, and sidelined those in the Obama administration who question the nature and utility of America’s "special relationship" with Israel, the Lobby’s flagship organization, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), is primed to hold their national conference in Washington next week, with Jane "This Conversation Doesn’t Exist" Harman slated to address the gathering.

The focus of the conference, and the legislative centerpiece of the event, will be passage of the Iran Diplomatic Enhancement Act, which would ban US companies from providing Iran with refined petroleum products, and seeks to punish European companies — particularly the Swiss, who come in for two specific mentions in the text of the bill — for doing so. "

"While it’s true that the Swiss provide up to 80 percent of the Iranians’ refined petroleum imports, as stated in the bill, what’s really at stake here is a spat between the Israelis and the government of Switzerland over a recent meeting between Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the sidelines of the UN’s recent anti-racism conference held in Geneva.

Reflecting the new hysteria that’s been injected into the Jewish state’s relations with the rest of the world, Israel recalled its ambassador to Switzerland in protest. Even talking to the Iranians, in any context, is considered by the Israelis to be an "existential" threat to the Jewish state, and anyone who engages in such conversation is considered an enemy — thus the clauses of the bill that target the Swiss. The message this is sending is clear: if you cross the Israelis, you cross the Americans, too — yes, even under the Obama administration.

Speaking of Obama, this campaign to isolate Iran is aimed at him just as much as it is at the Iranians, and the Swiss — it is a shot across the bow, a flexing of legislative muscle on the part of the Lobby that shows the newly-elected American president even he can’t stand up to the Lobby’s power. If he tries to reach out to the Iranians, and short-circuit the march to war, he’ll be subverted, opposed, and reined in by the American Congress, which is, as Pat Buchanan famously — and accurately — observed, "Israeli-occupied territory."

Default Street gets new name

Swiss Authorities Rename Paul Kruger Street Theo Buff from the town`s planning department told Reuters the name was being changed `because of racist associations`.



A street in the Swiss town of St. Gallen, which for more than a hundred years bore the name of former South African president Paul Kruger, was renamed by local authorities on Sunday.
Theo Buff from the town's planning department told Reuters the name was being changed "because of racist associations".

Kruger, who led the Boer resistance against the British during the Second Boer War of 1899 to 1902, lived in St. Gallen after escaping Africa when the British advanced on Pretoria.

"In the context of the time, naming a street after Paul Krueger can be understood," the St. Gallen town council said in a statement, "but today it can no longer be justified."

Buff said that a number of left-wing groups had criticized the street name.

The street will now be called Duerrenmatt street, after Swiss author and dramatist Friedrich Duerrenmatt.

[saw this somewhere]

Swiss males grow up expecting to undergo basic military training and a mandatory period of service in the Rekrutenschule (the "recruits-school"), the initial boot camp, after which Swiss men still remain part of the militia either in a home guard or reserve capacity until age 30 (age 34 for officers). Each such individual keeps his army-issued personal weapon (the Sig 550 5.56x45 mm assault rifle for enlisted personnel, the SIG 510 battle rifle and/or the SIG-Sauer P220 9 mm semi-automatic pistol for officers, medical and postal personnel) at home with a specified quantity of government-issued ammunition (50 rounds 5.56 mm / 48 rounds 9mm), sealed and inspected regularly to ensure that no unlawful use takes place. The emergency ammunition is the only ammunition that requires accounting for during inspections.
