Flüchtlingsrat Thüringen: Mohammed Sbaih – Die Abschiebung wurde vorläufig heute verhindert

Flüchtlingsrat Thüringen: Mohammed Sbaih – Die Abschiebung wurde vorläufig heute verhindert

Von Andreas Klamm

New York / Erfurt. 4. Dezember 2008. Entwarnung im Fall des von der Abschiebung bedrohten Mohammed Sbaih. Die für 3. Dezember 2008 geplante Abschiebung konnte in letzter Minute verhindert werden. Der Mann aus Palästina berfindet sich Informationen des Flüchtlingsrates Thüringen in Erfurt zufolge allerdings weiterhin in Abschiebehaft, vermutlich in Suhl. Der Flüchtlingsrat informierte darüber, dass ein Eilantrag offenbar noch beim Verwaltungsgericht Meiningen laufe.

Die geplante Ausweisung und Abschiebung von Mohammed Sbaih hat das Interesse der internationalen Öffentlichkeit gefunden. In der Redaktion von Radio IBS Liberty meldeten sich in Kommentar-Beiträgen sogar besorgte Leser aus dem Land Jordanien. Im fernen Jordanien gibt es offenbar auch Leser, die über die Situation von Flüchtlingen in Deutschland sehr besorgt sind.

Mohammed Sbaih hat sich als ein Flüchtling und damit auch als ein „Botschafter des Friedens“ im Flüchtlingslager Katzhütte im Kreis Saalfeld-Rudolstadt geradezu vorbildlich als ein Sprecher für die Interessen der Flüchtlinge in Deutschland bei Protesten engagiert und beklagt öffentlich die „miserablen Bedingungen für die Menschen“ in der Sammel-Unterkunft Katzhütte.

Sprecher einer weiteren Flüchtlings-Hilfe-Organisation bezeichneten Katzhütte so wörtlich als „Isolations-Lager“ und ein weiterer Sprecher aus einem Flüchtlingslager in Deutschland bestätigte in einem Radio-Interview mit Radio IBS Liberty, die Informationen, dass eine Vielzahl von Flüchtlingen sich mitten in Deutschland wie in „Isolations-Lagern verwahrt fühle.“ Die Lager seien oft weit entfernt von den Städten mitten im Wald. Eine Infra-Struktur bestünde nicht. Es würden nur Lebensmittel-Gutscheine, doch kein Bargeld ausgegeben. Kinder die die Schulen besuchen wollten, müssten über mehrere Kilometer zu Fuß durch Wälder und mit etwas Glück mit Bussen zur Schule transportiert werden. Nur etwa vier Stunden am Tag sei morgens und abends warmes Wasser zum Duschen verfügbar, weil gespart werden müsste, bestätigte der ehemalige Insasse aus einem Flüchtlingslager im Radio-Interview. An den Eingängen der Lager müssten die Flüchtlinge, sofern vorhanden ihre Ausweis-Dokumente abgeben. Eine Integration in die Lebensgemeinschaften der Städte mit Menschen in Deutschland, die von den Flüchtlingen und auch von engagierten Politikern vieler Parteien in Deutschland gewünscht wird, sei damit nahezu komplett ausgeschlossen.

Daher darf Mohammed Sbaih sicherlich auch in einer Vorreiter-Rolle mit der Wahrnehmung elementarster Grundrechte und Menschenrechte nach der Allgemeinen Erklärung der Menschenrechte proklamiert im Jahr 1948 durch die United Nations in New York, wie die freie Meinungs-Äußerung, für die Integration von Menschen aus anderen Ländern bezeichnet werden. Integration, die Eingliederung von Flüchtlingen aus Ländern, in den Menschen Schutz vor Gewalt, Terror und Krieg suchen kann sicherlich nicht nur von den Menschen in Deutschland ausgehen. Der engagierte Sprecher für die Interessen vieler Flüchtlinge in Deutschland, ungeachtet ihrer Herkunft oder ihres persönlichen Glaubens, hat bewiesen, dass auch Flüchtlinge ihren ganz persönlichen Beitrag für ein gutes Miteinander, für eine internationale Zusammenarbeit, in Deutschland leisten können.

Umso weniger ist es verständlich, dass sich der Mann immer noch in Abschiebe-Haft im Abschiebe-Gefängnis von Eisenach oder in der Nähe von Eisenach befindet.

Ein weiterer Sprecher einer anderen Flüchtlings-Hilfe-Organisation wünscht sich die Integration von Flüchtlingen in den Stadt-Zentren. Oft geht es nur um kleine und einfache Wünsche, wie etwa den Besuch der Schulen für Kinder aus Flüchtlingsfamilien zu erleichtern, ohne dass Kinder über mehrere Kilometer durch Wälder in Deutschland laufen müssen, weil die Lager oder auch Heime genannt, so weit von den Stadt-Zentren entfernt sind.

Die Gefahr der Abschiebung für Mohammed Sbaih weil dieser sicher kritisch zu den Lebens-Bedingungen in der Sammel-Unterkunft Katzhütte äußerte besteht weiterhin.

Die für diesen Mittwoch geplante Ausweisung von Mohammed Sbaih sei verschoben worden, sagte eine Sprecherin des Landesverwaltungsamtes gegenüber der deutschen Nachrichtenagentur Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa).

Das Verhalten und Vorgehen der Behörden stößt nicht nur beim Thüringer Flüchtlingsrat auf schärfste Kritik. Couragierte Poltiker der Partei Die Grünen / Bündnis 90 forderten jetzt auch die Landesregierung auf von einer Abschiebung von Mohammed Sbaih abzusehen.

Die Bedingungen für Schutz-suchende Flüchtlinge sind nicht an allen Orten in Deutschland so schlecht wie im Flüchtlings-Lager Katzhütte. Im baden-württembergische Heidelberg wäre der Flüchtling Mohammed Sbaih herzlichst willkommen und zwar mitten im bunten Stadt-Leben der Studenten- und Universitäts-Stadt Heidelberg. In einer geradezu vorbildlichen Aktion „Save me – Heidelberg – Eine Stadt sagt JA zu Flüchtlingen“ engagieren sich Menschen mit unterschiedlichen Hintergründen aus einer Vielzahl von Ländern für Flüchtlinge, die in Deutschland Schutz suchen.

Da ich in Heidelberg vor einigen Jahren ein gutes Abendgymnasium, das Kurfürst-Friedrich-Gymnasium, besuchen konnte unterstütze ich als Journalist, Rundfunk-Journalist, Autor, Fernseh- Radio- und Film-Produzent die Kampagne für Flüchtlinge „Save me – Heidelberg – Eine Stadt sagt JA zu Flüchtlingen“ – bei uns sind Flüchtlinge wie Mohammed Sbaih und viele Tausend weitere Menschen, die Schutz vor Terror, Krieg und Gewalt suchen herzlichst willkommen. ‘Wir begleiten Paten und zeigen ihnen das schöne Heidelberg, unternehmen gemeinsam Dinge. Lernen auf Gegenseitigkeit, etwa Mohammed Sbaih die deutsche Sprache und wir die arabische Sprache oder welche Sprache auch immer. So wurde ich von Beginn der Aktion an einer von 86 Paten für Flüchtlinge in der Stadt Heidelberg in Baden-Württemberg. Es ist ein wichtiges Signal das wir als Menschen setzen können. Mein Großvater war der französische Offizier Haedi Sabaot und so denke ich in vielen Bereichen des Lebens, wenn auch nicht in allen Bereichen des Lebens kosmopolitisch als ein Bürger in dieser Welt, was einige andere Menschen auch als Weltbürger bezeichnen.

Weshalb sollte Mohammed Sbaih nicht eines Tages auch als Student in Heidelberg studieren können. Oft erscheint mir, obgleich ich in Deutschland aufgewachsen bin dieses Land so fremd. Manchmal verzweifele ich und stelle dann fest, diese Land kenne ich nicht. Doch es darf nicht bei der Resignation bleiben. Die Menschen müssen sich engagieren und es ist gut wenn sich viele Menschen ungeachtet ihrer Herkunft oder sozialen Stellung in Deutschland und in Europa für Freiheit, für die internationalen Menschenrechte, für das Miteinander, Frieden, Schutz und intelligente und vernünftige Konzepte engagieren.

Wie muss es den vielen Tausend Menschen den Flüchtlingen gehen, die Schutz, Liebe, Miteinander, das Gefühl, Angenommen zu werden, Geborgenheit und vielleicht einfach nur das Glück eines guten Studiums an einer guten Universität in Deutschland suchen?

Flüchtlinge, die als „Botschafter des Friedens“ deshalb bezeichnet werden können, weil diese oft in fernen Ländern vor Krieg, Terror und Gewalt flüchten, sollten nicht in Lagern in Deutschland isoliert werden. Eine Isolation von Menschen macht die internationale Völkerverständigung nahezu unmöglich. Wir müssen fragen und miteinander kommunizieren und seien die Standpunkte und Überzeugungen noch so unterschiedlich.

Ausführliche Informationen zur Aktion „Save me – Heidelberg – Eine Stadt sagt JA zu Flüchtlingen“ sind bei http://www.save-me-heidelberg.de im Internet zu finden.

Weitere und ausführliche Informationen zur Situation zur Arbeit des Flüchtlingsrates Thüringen und zur Situation des Asyl-suchenden Menschen Mohammed Sbaih sind auch direkt beim Flüchtlingsrat Thüringen e.V., Warsbergstr. 1, 99092 Erfurt, Tel. 0361 2172720, Fax. 0361 2172727, http://www.fluechtlingsrat-thr.de, zu erhalten.

Bis heute war mir nicht bekannt, dass die Dienste von 3mnewswire.org und IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty und IBS Television Liberty auch von Lesern aus Jordanien gelesen, gesehen und gehört werden. Damit darf ich jetzt mit Freude und Dankbarkeit verkünden, dass wir Leser, Hörer und Zuschauern aus 41 Ländern in aller Welt haben. Danke an alle unsere Leser, Hörer und Zuschauer. Wir sind dankbar für jeden Menschen, wo auch immer sie leben , der unsere Dienste liest, sieht oder hört. Danke !

Einen Mann wie Mohammed Sbaih könnten wir in unserem internationalen Redaktions-Team gut aufnehmen. Er ist ein engagierter Mann, der es sich mitten in Deutschland auch wagt über kritische Themen und die schlimmen Lebensbedingungen von Flüchtlingen in Deutschland und damit auch über Menschen in Not zu sprechen, die zum Teil durch schlimmste Geschehen in Krisen- und Kriegs-Regionen hoch traumatisiert sind und Leid erlebt haben, das in Worten kaum zu beschreiben ist.

IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty wurde 1986 in der deutschen Stadt Speyer am Rhein und in der englischen Stadt Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom gegründet.

IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty ist ein alternatives, independent und internationales Medien-Netzwerk mit Journalisten und Autoren aus 33 Ländern und seit heute mit Lesern, Hörern und Zuschauern aus 41 Ländern. Das Medien-Netzwerk ist nicht-kommerziell weil alternativ und international. Zeitweise arbeitet das Medien-Netzwerk unter „NO“- und „LOW“-Budget-Bedingungen.

Right Livelihood Award Schweden

Jakob von Uexkull: Menschen sollten sich mehr in der Politik engagieren und Demokratie verteidigen

Von Andreas Klamm

New York / London / Stockholm./3mnewswire.org/13. November 2008. „Die Menschen sollten sich mehr in der Politik engagieren und die Demokratie verteidigen.“, das sagte der Gründer und Direktor der Right Livelihood Award Foundation in Schweden, Jakob von Uexkull, in einem Interview mit dem Journalisten, Rundfunk-Journalisten und Autor mehrerer Bücher, Andreas Klamm, in einem Radio-Interview bei Radio IBS Liberty.

Am 8. Dezember wird Jakob von Uxekull den Preisträgern des Right Livelihood Award der Auszeichnung für das Jahr 2008 die Preise im Parlament von Schweden in der Stadt Stockholm überreichen. Der Right Livelihood Award ist weltweit bekannt als alternativer Nobelpreis, der jährlich in den Tagen vor der Nobel-Preis-Verleihung an die Empfänger des internationalen Preises verliehen wird. Den Preisträgern ist der Preis oft eine große Hilfe, weil die engagierten Frauen und Männer bisher oft ohne jede finanzielle Unterstützung wichtige Projekte der sozialen Transformation realisiert haben, die für viele Menschen in aller Welt von kaum schätzbarer Bedeutung und Nutzen sind.

In diesem Jahr werden, Monika Hauser, eine Ärztin aus Deutschland, die in vielen Krisenregionen und Kriegs-Gebieten in dieser Welt gearbeitet hat, um den überlebenden Opfern und Frauen von Massenvergewaltigungen und sexueller Gewalt während der Kriege zu helfen und sie zu rehabilitieren. Monika Hauser gibt den Opfer von Gewalt, Schutz und Unterstützung und engagiert sich auch dafür, dass die Vergewaltigung von Frauen während der Kriege als Kriegs-Verbrechen verfolgt und bestraft wird. In diesem Bereich setzte sich die Ärztin auch in großen Gefahren unter anderem während des Krieges in Bosnien und in Asien ein.

Asha Hagi ist eine Parlamentarierin in Somalia. Somalia ist bekanntlich ein Land, das im Chaos versinkt. Das hat die Frau nicht davon abgehalten einen Clan für Frauen zu gründen. Bisher gab es in dem Land, das immer wieder durch Kriege zwischen den Stämmen und Clanen erschüttert wird, fünf Clan-Organisationen, die ausschließlich von Männern repräsentiert waren. Asha Hagai gründete den sechsten Clan. Den Clan der Frauen. Sie engagiert sich zudem für Frieden und für ein Ende der immer wieder neu aufflammenden Kämpfe in Somalia. Sie mischte sich gewissermaßen damit gleichberechtigt in die Verhandlungen ein. Den Right Livelihood Award erhält sie für diese Arbeit und Mut den die Frau einbrachte.

Ein Ehepaar aus Indien wird ebenso ausgezeichnet mit dem Right Livelihood Award. Nach Schweden kann jedoch „nur“ die Ehefrau Krishnammal Jagannathan reisen, da ihr Ehegatte schon weit über 90 Jahre alt ist. Das Ehepaar und Krishnammal Jogannathan arbeitete schon mit Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi zusammen. Ihr Hauptziel ist dafür zu sorgen, dass die Menschen ohne Land, Zugang zu Land erhalten. Das Interesse an der Arbeit Ghandis wächst durch das Engagement des Ehepaars sehr. Dies vor allem auch aufgrund der wachsenden Probleme durch den Klimawandel.

Als erste Journalistin in der Welt wird eine der besten Journalistinnen in dieser Welt zum ersten Mal mit dem Right Livelihood Award ausgezeichnet und gefördert. Amy Goodman, die Gründerin eines kleinen alternativen Medien-Imperiums in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika und eines politischen Informations-Programmes, das auch der Ausbildung dient, Democracy NOW! (www.democracynow.org) wurde im September 2008 während einer politischen Bericht-Erstattung verhaftet. Am 8. Dezember 2008 wird sie die erste Journalistin in der Welt sein, die den angesehenen Right Livelihood Award, den alternativen Nobel-Preis, erhalten wird.

Das Projekt Democracy NOW! gründete die Journalistin, die an der angesehenen Harvard University in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika studierte und seit Jahr 1984 Radio-Sendungen produziert. Democracy NOW! kann als Radio- und Fernseh-Sendungen inzwischen weltweit in der englischen Sprache bei mehr als 700 regionalen Fernseh-Stationen und rund 250 Radio-Stationen, von Montag bis Freitag, gehört werden. Amy Goodman ist gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder David Goodman auch die Autorin von politisch kritischen Büchern wie „Standing up to the madness“, Drilling and Killing: Chevron and Nigeria’s Oil Dictatorship’ (1998), Massacre: the Story of East Timor’. Diese Geschichte kostete fast das Leben der Autorin. In Ost -Timor überlebte die Journalistin mit einem weiteren Journalisten das Massaker im Jahr 1991, in dem Soldaten aus Indonesien 270 Menschen in Ost-Timor ermordeten.

Die Autorin und Journalistin schrieb drei weitere Bücher gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder mit harten Fakten: The Exception to the Rulers (2004); Static: Government Liars, Media Cheer-leaders and the People who Fight Back (2006); and Standing up to the Madness (2008). Sie schreibt zudem regelmäßig Kolumnen für Zeitungen in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika.

„Wir brauchen alternative Stimmen. Es gibt diese Stimmen. Aber diese Stimmen werden oft nicht gehört in den Medien. Das ist durch die Gleichschaltung der Medien besonders auch in den USA der Fall. Das macht es unmöglich irgendwelche komplexen Zusammenhänge vernünftig zu erklären im Radio oder Fernsehen. Amy Goodman sorgt mit ihrem Programm für eine informierte Debatte und gibt den alternativen Stimmen ein Gehör.“, erklärte Jakob von Uexkull.

Die Jury hat die Verhaftung der Journalistin mit großer Sorge beobachtet. Das war sicher einer der Gründe für die Nominierung auch wegen der amerikanischen Wahlen. Die Verhaftung zeigte der Jury noch stärker, wie wichtig es ist eine derart engagierte Frau und Journalistin zu unterstützen und zu schützen.

Besonders auf dem Gebiet der Wirtschaft sieht Jakob von Uexkull das Problem des gefährlichen Demokratie-Defizits. Lügen in der Politik, wie etwa in der Bankenkrise, in der seit Jahren Menschen immer wieder erzählt wurde, es sei kein Geld da, als plötzlich dann Milliarden von Euro und U.S Dollar „auftauchen“ um die Banken zu retten, sollten nicht zu einer Politik-Skepsis führen, sondern vielmehr dazu , dass sich mehr engagierte Menschen politisch, regional oder national einsetzen. Demokratie müsse immer wieder neu erkämpft werden. Der Stiftungs-Gründer betonte: „Man muss bereit sein sich im politischen Leben auch zu engagieren. Nicht etwa als Berufspolitiker und auch nicht für das ganze Leben, doch durchaus lokal, regional und national, vielmehr als bisher. Ein Beitritt zu Organisationen und Vereinen genügt nicht. Man muss sich auch politisch und gesellschaftlich persönlich engagieren, wenn man dafür sorgen will, dass der Krieg gegen die Demokratie nicht etwa von den Feinden der Demokratie gewonnen wird.“

Der Gründer der Right Livelihood Award Foundation, Jakob von Uexkull, stiftete zu Beginn der erstmaligen Verleihungen der Preise vor rund 19 Jahren für fünf Jahre die Preisgelder aus eigenen finanziellen Mitteln. Inzwischen wird der Preis auch durch zahlreiche Spenden aus aller Welt auch von vielen Spendern aus Deutschland gefördert und unterstützt.

Eine weitere und ausführliche Bericht-Erstattung folgt.

Die Radio-Sendung wurde im Rahmen in der Arbeit der internationalen Medien-Arbeitsgemeinschaft Independent Broadcasting Service (IBS) Liberty bei Radio IBS Liberty produziert und gesendet. Die Sendung kann unter anderem auch bei Radio Open-NL in den Niederlanden und in aller Welt gehört werden:

Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty wurde 1986 in der deutschen Stadt Speyer am Rhein und in der englischen Stadt Leeds in England von dem Journalisten, Rundfunk-Journalisten und Autor mehrerer Bücher, Andreas Klamm gegründet. Das internationale Medien-Netzwerk dient seit 1986 mit Fernseh- und Radio-Programmen der internationalen Völkerverständigung und setzt sich für Menschen in schwerster Not, unter anderem auch behinderte Journalisten und Menschen ein. Jakob von Uexkull ist in einer sehr politischen bewussten und engagierten Familie aufgewachsen.

World Citizen: Journalist confirms that he is working for the international press – “War is abortion”

World Citizen:

Journalist confirms that he is working for the international press

“War is abortion”

By Andrew P. Harrod

Washington, D.C./New York City/October 24, 2008/3mnewswire.org/– The French-German journalist, broadcast journalist and author of several books, founder and director of IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty and IBS Television Liberty, founder and director of Grace MedCare Ltd. London, United Kingdom has confirmed that since 1984 he is working as journalist, author and broadcast journalist for the international press.

Some German citizen have considered that the French-German author by birth could be Anti-German.

Andreas Klamm has said: “By no means I am Anti-German. These people have perhaps come to false conclusions only because I am against the deadly ideology of the German Nazis, against racism, nationalism, against the abuses of human rights and against the oppression of the poor people and against the oppression of refugees and other people.”

It has been discovered that the journalist has been even recently co-operating with authors and journalists from countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, United States of America, Israel, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Greece, Wales, Scotland, England, Ireland, Austria, Australia, Iran, Iraq, Paraguay, Bolivia, Canada, Lithuania, Brazil, Portugal, Turkey, Russia, Denmark, Togo, Kenya, Burundi, Sweden, Georgia, the Dominican Republic and even with journalists from Asia..

The journalist has explained also “You should not wonder about these things. In the German city of Speyer and in the English city of Leeds in the United Kingdom in 1986 I became the founder of IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty, which is an international and alternative non-commercial media. Since 1986 I have declared many times both on radio and television in many cases that the independent, alternative is supporting international understanding since 1986. Those which have been watching my radio and television programs do know very well, that as a French-German journalist, author, broadcast journalist I do treat myself as a citizen in this world.

The German city of Ludwigshafen am Rhein is a city in this world and on this planet. Certainly I have to refuse if people call me an alien or Anti-German. I am a citizen in this world and a citizen on this planet and certainly I do treat myself as a citizen in this world as a human being and claim to be a human being.

If some people call me an alien this leads to the conclusion if these people perhaps could be Anti-human? The international community should investigate who might be PRO-human beings and who might be Anti–human beings. This investigation and research would so easily deliver hundreds if not thousand of interesting stories which have to be covered in the newspapers, on radio, the television. So far as I have heard about the number I do believe there are about 6.7 billions of human beings in this world. Who in the world could claim that he or she is not born in this world and on this planet? And who in the world would believe such a thing even if someone would claim to be born as a human being not in this world and on this planet? My belief system includes that all human beings have equal rights to live, for social security, for democracy, liberty, peace and justice.

This might be shocking news. But I am also Anti-Abortion when it comes to the point where dictators do believe they might have the right to abort millions of human beings by war or other disasters which have caused by human beings. Not every disaster is a natural one or caused by a supernatural and supreme authority. Some of the disasters are created by people which do profit from wars and love to abort (to kill) millions of people, instead to save the life or a man or woman or even more. War is abortion in the higher sense. Someone else is making the decision if you might live or not. I believe the right to create live and to take life belongs to the LORD our GOD, only. It is very easy to deliver the proof. Certainly I do believe we have to bring to an end the bloody circle of violence.

Horses and dogs seems to be more intelligent than us poor human beings in the area of social ties and behavior. Have you ever heard a dog or a horse, which was white or yellow calling a brown dog or a black horse to be a non-dog or to be a non-horse? The critics should understand you can not change this: I am a human being and I am a citizen in this world and on this planet. Certainly I will continue to support and to work hard for international understanding, liberty, democracy, peace, social security, justice and human rights.

It is no secret that some dictators and supporters of a tyranny want to make all of us their slaves. We should by no means allow such a thing going to happen. Therefore it is important to be engaged in the defense of democracy, liberty, international understanding, peace, liberty, social values and justice. This engagement will actually make many of us better human beings.”

The danger of spies is little: Free thinking and free communication will be censored or even forbidden

The danger of spies is little:

Free thinking and free communication will be censored or even forbidden

By Andreas Klamm

New York / London/3mnewswire.org/– Many people in the United States of America and in Germany are so much worried about the fact that government institutions and huge massive telecommunication companies could spy on them.

In Germany people are very well used to the total observation by the German intelligence services such as the Gestapo during the years 1933 to 1945 and the STASI during the years 1945 to 1990. This is not new to the people in Germany that companies and governmental organization do spy on them since many years already.

The danger is surely that if telecommunications companies do spy constantly on managers, military forces members, politicians and other people these people which have been “monitored” could easily become a victim of an extortion.

In summer 2008 it has been discovered that the biggest German telecommunication company has spied on journalists, managers, politicians and actually all people in Germany. The new so called Anti-Terror laws made it easily going to happen that about 82 million people in Germany are accounted as “potential terrorists” in Germany and the German military will have to fight against German citizen. Imagine the poor German soldier which will receive the order “Shoot her, shoot your grandma, daughter, neighbor as German soldiers usually follow simply the instructions which are given by commanders, “order is order”.” The German soldiers will be polite and friendly and tell their daughters, sons and grandparents: “Sorry, but order is order, I have to kill you”. As they did during they years in 1933 to 1945. German soldiers have been this brave that they have tried to attack Russia, knowing very well that there is no chance to win the war against Russia.

If there would be 82 million people terrorists in Germany this certainly could be a real threat to national security in Germany. But how realistic is it going to happen that 82 million people in Germany will be on the payroll of the Al-Qaeda network and Osama bin Laden (Usāmah bin Muḥammad bin Awaḍ bin Lādin). Does he know already about this massive rise in membership of his terror network?

Who in the world would believe that 260 million American citizen could be in the future willing to sign in as members with the Al-Qaeda network as this seems to be the thing which some political forces want us to believe. Would Osama bin Laden be able to handle this situation?

It was not a real shocking news that the German parliament has decided about one week ago that the German military known as Bundeswehr will be used in the upcoming war against democracy and demonstrators such as peace demonstrators in Germany

The German citizen or the people are used already to this circumstances, the use of the German military against citizen of Germany already since 2007. During the G8 summit in Heiligendamm military combat air craft and military combat vehicle have been used to “observe” the opposition and demonstrators against the G8 summit and many preemptive raids by massive police forces have been noticed.

Is it really a coincident only? In 1937 the German military called in the dark ages from 1933 to 1945 Wehrmacht has used against the opposition which have been not willing to support the Nazi-Terror-Regime and in many places in Germany the still so beloved the “Fuehrer – Adolf the Great”, better known as Adolf Hitler.

What people in the United States of America (U.S.A.) and in Germany might perhaps not be aware of is the fact that some so called “world elite thinkers” do believe that free thinking and free communication of any kind between many or all people has to be censored or to be prohibited.

Is this something new? Maybe or should I write “Mayday, mayday, mayday !” in the meaning of Mayday which is an emergency code word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications.

It derives from the French venez m’aider, meaning ‘come help me‘. It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency by many groups, such as police forces, pilots, the fire brigade, and transportation organizations. The call is always given three times in a row (“Mayday Mayday Mayday”) to prevent mistaking it for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual mayday call from a message about a mayday call, according to wikipedia.

So far as some people do remember the speech of one known as Adolf Hitler which has sad that Germany shall be above all.

“Electric wires, high and double
Won’t let you Mom – you won’t see your daughter
So don’t believe those censored letters of mine
cause the truth is different; but don’t cry, Mom.
And if you would like to seek out your child’s trace
Don’t ask anyone, don’t knock anywhere:
look for the ashes in the fields of Auschwitz
It will be there.  But don’t cry – enough of bitterness here.
And if you would like to discover your child’s trace
look for the ashes in the fields of Birkenau
They’ll be there – so look for the ashes
In the fields of Auschwitz, in the woods of Birkenau,
Mom, look for the ashes – I’ll be there!”

As you are able to read, to censor even letters from German concentration camps is not new to people in Germany. The victims of the Nazi-Terror-Regime can tell you real stories of any kind. Monika Dombke is only one of the victims of the German Nazi Holocaust and during 1933 to 1945 millions have people have been killed.

People in Germany are even used to mass murder also. In World War II 50 million people have been slaughtered, murdered or killed. It does not really matter how you call the fact that 50 million people are dead.

During 1933 to 1945 the victims of the Nazi regime have been burned in the crematory and you should not wonder if these things still continue going to happen in the so called “good old Germany”.

Germany is no doubt so very special and perhaps it is already truly above all as Hitler during his famous speeches has declared. Germany could be so easily even above the U.S presidency .

As long as people in the United States of America do not desire to live in the future in a country which most of the American citizen do not even know, the United States of Germany with its capital city Washington, D.C., they should consider to fight as peaceful as possible for liberty, democracy, peace and justice. Otherwise 260 million American citizen will face the consequences what it means to be a slave under torture in Germany.

The U.S. magazine Forbes has published three years in continuation that the German chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel “…is the most powerful woman on earth…”. In a public speech in 2005 the German chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel has declared in the future “…will Germany not able anymore to afford the luxury of a democracy…”. Only a short time after Adolf Hitler has said a similar thing, the world was engaged in World War II.

About the up coming stone age

One of my favorite writers, Albert Einstein has made the statements: “A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

If free communication will be censored or even forbidden, how in the world understanding shall be possible?

On November 4, 2008 it will be election day in the United States of America. Spend only 10 seconds on the strange idea that the German chancellor known as the most powerful woman on earth will take control over the U.S. presidency. She would be the very first emperor in charge of the European Union (500 million people) and the United States of Germany (260 million people) which has been known until the year 2008 as the United States of America (U.S.A.).

Perhaps people should consider if they truly want to become an inmate of some kind of concentration camp and will end up in a crematory.

The serious question which needs to be asked: Is this world during a global financial crisis truly able to afford the luxury of country known as Germany which could be above all?


Note:
Andreas Klamm, journalist and author since 1984 is the founder and director of IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty (Leeds, England, United Kingdom, 1986), Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty, British Newsflash Magazine (1986) and Grace MedCare Ltd. London, United Kingdom, (October 2006). IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty is supporting international understanding since 1986 and there are hundreds of witnesses. In October 2007 with the U.S Department for Justice, Washington, D.C he has requested the change of the German citizenship into the American citizenship for reason of belief, faith, conscience and political reason. He is in opposition to the German political decisions such as the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places. He is against his will in Germany. Since 19 months access to any kind of medical treatment and even to dentists is not possible. He has written and published several books. His grandfather is Black-African, was a former French-Army officer and is a French citizen. His total income for the year 2007 have been 437,– Euro for the entire year. He had to pay federal tax for the total income of 437,–. Euro for an entire year in 2007. He said recently,”…that he wants NOT to support the Nazi ideology and that Human Rights or social security do count nothing in Germany. If you are poor in Germany it actually means that you are not accounted even as a human being or in other words by no means poor people have any rights in Germany. I do know what I am talking about. If I would have any rights I would be allowed to leave the country which I do in not like. Many people in Germany have a great joy to kill children, women and disabled men. After three accidents in 1993, 1994, 1995 I am physically disabled. For 22 years I have paid all tax of all kind of medical, social and even unemployment insurance and federal tax. However I do receive nothing ! Disabled and poor people have no rights and the paper the so called human rights are written on is not worth one single cent in Germany. In 2007 he was questioned by German Police. The right for defense of an attorney was denied. You see if I mean no right, I mean absolutely no human rights, even not the right to be defended by an attorney. This is Germany and you should know this. The day when G-d will judge the earth and all which dwell on this earth is coming and G-D himself will take care of these and other things. People are laughing at me and other victims but they will stop their laughter the day when G-D himself will judge all which dwell in this world. Be certain, the judge will judge, even the judges. — Nazis do bother me. It seems crystal clear all they know is how to kill children, women, poor people and disabled men…”

Amy Goodman to receive Communication for Peace Award

By Andrew P. Harrod
London/New York/Paris/Toronto/Athens/ 3mnewswire.org/October 3, 2008 — As the World Asscoation of Christian Communication (WACC) has issued in a news release WACC has announced that investigative journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now! (www.democracynow.org ), a daily TV /r adio news show airing on more than 700 stations worldwide, is to receive its Communication for Peace Award. The ceremony will take place at WACC´s international conference „Communication is peace“: Building viable communities and in Cape Town, South Africa, 6-10 October 2008 (Monday to Friday).

Amy Goodman draws her inspiration from independent thinkers, artists, activists, journalists and alternative media around the world – those who challenge the powers that be. In Static, she writes: „Every day, Democracy Now! breaks the sound barrier by broadcasting a rich, dissenting, diverse range of voices. This includes the powerful and the grassroots, the banned, the celebrated, the despised, marginalized and ignored. These are the voices of people fighting to make the world a better, more humane, just, peaceful, and more compassionate place.

Goodman holds a degree in anthropology from Harvard University and began her journalism career as producer of the evening news show for community radio station WBAI, Pacifica Radio´s station in New York City.

In 1991, Goodman traveled to East Timor to report on the Indonesian occupation of that country. There, she and colleague Allan Nairn witnessed Indonesian soldiers gun down 270 East Timorese men, women and children during a memorial procession. Indonesian soldiers savagely beat both journalists, fracturing Nairn´s skull. Their documentary Massacre: The Story of East Timor later won numerous awards, including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award, the Armstrong Award, and the Radio/Television News Directors Award.

Goodman believes the role of the media is to go to where the silence is and say something. „I think the media can build bridges in society between cultures and communities. But we need to hear people speaking for themselves. That breaks down bigotry and the stereotypes that fuel hatred. If you don’t hear the voices of certain people, and you see them being demonized, it becomes easier to treat them as sub-human.

In March 2004, Goodman obtained the international broadcast exclusive of the return of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from his imposed exile in the Central African Republic to Jamaica, accompanying the Aristides with the delegation that retrieved them.
Her coverage of the Haitian story scored more than 3.5 million hits on the web site of Democracy Now!, ultimately forcing the story into the mainstream press in what Goodman describes as a „trickle up journalism.“

Since 2006, Goodman has been writing a weekly column Breaking the Sound Barrier for King Features Syndicate. She says her column´s focus is to „include voices so often excluded, people whose views the media mostly ignore, issues they distort and even ridicule.

Goodman has published three New York Times best-sellers: The Exception to the Rulers: Exposing Oily Politicians, War Profiteers, and the Media That Love Them (2004), Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders, and The People who Fight Back (2006); and Standing up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times (2008), each
co-authored with her brother, journalist David Goodman. WACC is proud to name Amy Goodman as the recipient of its Communication for Peace Award.

Brutal arrest of peace correspondent and journalist Amy Goodman from Democracy Now!. It seems these special forces have prepared perhaps for the battle of Armageddon already? Photos: 3mnewswire.org/DigiSource/intlservice

“It was shocking news to see how police officers which looked like they have prepared already for the battle of Armageddon (Greek Αρμαγεδδων; [armageddôn] also spelled Har-Magedon in some modern English translations; also known as Mount of Megiddo ) have mistreated one of the very best journalists and peace correspondents such as Amy Goodman from Democracy Now!.“, said journalist Andreas Klamm from IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty.

He said also: „How can a man dare to mistreat a lady or a woman which is well known in the entire world for her hard labor as a journalist for democracy and peace. It is hard to understand that some men are so scared about the truth, democracy and liberty and that they may not know anymore how to treat in a good manner and behavior a good woman and journalist such as Amy Goodman is one. Many of us would be happy to meet her and to have a chance for an interview and these police officers have been so poor not to see the honor of meeting a precious woman which Amy Goodman certainly is.“

After about 60.000 people from around the world have signed several petitions to drop the charges against the journalist Amy Goodman and her two fellow producers have got released from prison and the charges have been dropped.

The founder and director of IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty, the independent journalist Mr. Andreas Klamm has made the statement: „Amy Goodman is of a truth one of the best journalists and working hard for peace and democracy in this world which we all in urgency do need in many different places. As an affiliate of the World Association of Christian Communication (WACC) I am very thankful and happy to learn that my colleague Amy Goodman will receive the Communication and Peace Award. However I would also be happy if her brother David Goodman would also receive a good honor and award. Amy Goodman is a great example and many of us should follow her example to stand up for peace, liberty and democracy. Her program Democracy Now! Can been seen on http://www.demoracynow.org and I only can recommend to those which do support democracy, liberty and peace that many people as possible around the world should watch or listen the program.”

Andreas Klamm is working as independent journalist, broadcasting host of 3mnewswire.org, XXL-info, Compact and many other radio and television programs. He is also the author of several books. In 1984 he has founded the independent news wire service 3mnewswire.org. In 1986 he became the founder and director of IBS Independent Broadcasting Service Liberty, Radio IBS Liberty, IBS Television Liberty. In 2006 he became the founder of the international media project “Human Rights Reporters” and has covered with his colleague Mr. Hans-Juergen Graf and other journalists about 150 cases of serious abuses of the human rights against poor people, believers in Christ and against journalists. After covering an event in memory of the victims of the NAZI-Terror-Regime during 1933 to 1945 in the year 2000 he and other co-producers have received threats and death threats for the television production “November 9, 1938 and today”.

After he has completed as a soldier his entire forced 15 months military service from 1988 to 1989 with the German Air Force (not as a volunteer, but forced !) as a descendant of a Black-African French Army officer, Mr. Haedi Sabaot, he has requested the German military forces with a petition to accept his will that he wants not to fight as a soldier for the German military forces for religious, political and belief reasons. The German military forces have not accepted the petition.

Andreas Klamm has explained: “You should know that my grandfather the French citizen, Mr. Haedi Sabaot is subject to national security both in France and in Germany. World War II has not come to an end to the family of my mother. 62 years after the capitulation of the German military in 1945 my grandfather which felt in love with a young beautiful girl, my grandmother Mrs. Martha Kolacz, which left in 1950 Germany for ever, German and French authorities still refuse to issue information about a French Army officer, which is my grandfather and the father of my mother. As many of you are able to imagine, I still can not believe that German and French governmental authorities 62 years after World War II explain to me, my sisters and to my mother, that the right of information to know what happened to our father and grandfather is still refused, abused and this I am only able to treat as serious abuse of the human rights. The terror of World War II continues and these authorities do destroy families on purpose. – In the past I have written so many letters and petitions to presidents, world leaders, embassies and military officials that I could easily fill perhaps another four books just with letters and petitions to presidents and leaders in this world in concern of the right of the information about my grandfather which disappeared after he was stationed in 1945 in Germany from this planet earth, according to German and French authorities. Who in the world would believe such a thing that an officer of the French Army disappears without any trace from the earth? However I am very thankful that after a research ongoing for more then 20 years I have found the son of my grandfathers good friend, the former French Army officer, Mr. Marbruck Brachim and I had a chance to talk with the son of my grandfather´s good friend. His father has got killed in the war in the country of Algeria. As you are able I do believe that war is wrong and the ideology of the Nazi-regime is not an opinion but a serious crime, as my colleague the journalist Mrs. Ulla Jelpke has said recently during an interview on Radio IBS Liberty.”

After two shootings in August 2008 have taken place in the German city of Dortmund against the office of the journalist and politician Mrs. Ulla Jelpke the journalist Andreas Klamm has written a public petition for protection journalists and politicians in Germany also. The 2nd attack and shooting against the office of the journalist and politician took place with co-workers of the journalist inside the office. Thanks fortune non of the workers got injured. Mrs Ulla Jelpke (www.ulla-jelpke.de) is a journalist and politician of the left wing party in Germany as known as “Die Linke” (the left). The petition can be found in the English and German language on: http://www.petitiononline.com/aug082/petition.html

The journalist Andreas Klamm has published many articles in daily newspapers since 1984 which are accounted as “liberal” and some of them are accounted as “left wing media” while other media outlets and magazines are accounted as “christian” media. He is co-operating since 1986 with many journalists from around the world, some of them have expressed to be of the Jewish, Muslim or even Christian household of faith. In 1986 he has founded the little independent magazine British Newsflash Magazine and in spring 2008 he became the co-founder of the international magazine MJB Mission News (ISSN 1999-8418).

In October 2007 for reason of faith, religion, political issues and for many other reasons the journalist has requested with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington D.C., according to article 15, universal declaration of the Human Rights, declared in December 1948 through the United Nations the official change of the German citizenship to the American citizenship, which he prefers.

Observers from different countries have confirmed that the author and journalist Andreas Klamm suffers for about 19 months because of torture in Germany. Since about 19 months access to any kind of medical treatment, medical doctors and even dentist is denied. He wants to leave Germany and Europe, but somehow this request is also not granted at this moment. The journalist got disabled after three accidents in 1994, 1995 and 1996 and he needs medical treatment because of Asthma, back injuries and liver damages.

After being diagnosed with possible cancer, which is not certain, in the year 2003 he has declared that he wants not to die in Germany and neither wants to be buried in Germany anymore. He himself treats not as a citizen of Germany anymore.

After signing a public petition to stop the violence against the people in Burma the author and journalist has received from an US-UN Public Affairs officer an email with the statement: “ … Your voice is crucial in our decision-making processes, and we want to reiterate our appreciation for your concern. By studying this increasingly important global issue, you become better, more engaged citizens. We remain committed to facilitating democratization in Burma and continue to move as quickly as possible to end this terrible situation. …“

“I am not certain if I am accounted in the United States of America, U.S.A., as an U.S citizen already, but I still have some hope to be able to live some years in the US and to take action as citizen of the United States of America, journalist, author, broadcasting host, independent television- radio and film producer for liberty, democracy and peace before I might have to pass away after about 19 months living without any kind of access to doctors or even dentists.

However terrorists no matter in which masks they appear should try to understand and to learn, that they might be able to destroy some buildings and as a sad fact may even the life of people and investigative journalists, but you can not destroy the freedom, liberty, peace and spirit of so many precious people in the United States of America and even in other countries which are laboring hard for democracy, liberty and peace.

It is not easy to handle every day the pain after a car accident in 1994 and after an accident while being performing some horse-back riding in 1995. Because of many research in concern of the United Nations declaration of the human rights, I do know that information, expression of thoughts, the freedom of the press and journalists and even medical and social security and freedom are important and elementary for a vital democracy.

However I would be happy also if the U.S.A. would stop the terrible situation of torture against journalists which are disabled in Germany and which are working hard for democracy, liberty and peace, day and night by issuing as soon as possible the permission to live and work in the United States of America.”, said Andreas Klamm in concern of the email which he has received from an US-UN Public Affairs officer on October 23, 2007.

In April 2007 the targeted killing of poor people with disabilities has taken place in Germany and has been continued after a public debate held by the German parliament in Berlin.

Recently the author and journalist has declared “..that the war in Afghanistan is not a war in his name or in the name of the people in Germany. It is not a war in the name of all people in Germany. 20 million people in Germany do live beyond the poverty line and in poverty beyond description. Children, people with disabilities and even women have been starving to death in the country of Germany in 2007. Imagine if Germany would make the wise decision instead of building tanks for war to feed the poor citizen in Germany. This would have a great impact for peace, liberty, democracy and even social security. Most of these people do not want a war of any kind. People should try to learn that we are not competitors which are in a battle who is going to survive or not but that it is the duty of all human beings to understand and learn to live in peace and to support those which are in need instead to use weapons of mass destruction or to kill each other. The disasters which have taken place in this world such as the Tsunami in 2004 and all these earthquakes and hurricanes are already this worse, that political leaders should avoid to cause more disasters through war. My 2nd profession is to be a registered nurse (R.N., RGN) and from the experience when I became a nurse (R.N.) in 1993, also besides my 1st profession as a journalist I do know that it is certainly more difficult to save a life then to destroy a life. However I do believe together we can not only save one live but the life of many people and it is much better to save the life of people then to destroy the life of men, women and children in need.

The ongoing wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq is the war of some people in high places and in power but not the war of the people of Germany and neither the war of the people of the United States of America. The people of the United States of America and of Germany are not the enemies of the people in Afghanistan or in Iraq, but those which are the war makers and which do profit from war. Every one which is able to think, should think and every one which is able to listen should listen. Many people want liberty, democracy, peace and not war ! The people in Iraq and Afghanistan should know that this is not the war of the people of the United States of America and it is not the war of the people of Germany.

So far as I have learned many people in Germany and in the United States of America want peace, democracy and liberty and not that innocent woman and children get killed by German and American Military Forces in certain places such as in the countries of Afghanistan or Iraq. The most important duty of a journalist is the respect for the truth and for the right to the public to truth is the first duty of the journalist. Therefore I do believe no journalist or any other media person should participate in propaganda for war but take action for truth, peace, liberty and democracy. As is it written in the Holy Scriptures “Blessed are the peace makers” and NOT the war makers. In the Holy Scriptures it is also written: Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. Zechariah, Chapter 8, vers 19.”
