UKRAINE – GERMAN EUROPE PUSHES EAST
So German Foreign Minister, Steinmeier who sees democratic sovereigntists in Western Europe as “threats to peace” is pleased to shake hands with openly fascist and nationalistic Ukrainians!
One of the parties (Swoboda), called to meetings in the German embassy in Kiev with Steinmeier, has a leader who seeks to rid Ukraine of Jews and was described by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre as one of the most anti-semitic in the world.
When there is a consensus between the British political parties, the press and the BBC you can be sure they will all be supporting a disaster in the making. So it is in the Ukraine. There was a similar consensus about Yugoslavia where, as a result, thousands died, a million or more were ethnically cleansed, NATO declared an illegal war, Germany managed to reverse the settlement of two world wars and dangerous fascist groups arose from the graves of 1945. Now leading EU politicians and Washington have whipped up sectarian, racist and divisive politics in Ukraine, using the methods which brought the disastrous Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt.
For a decade or more before the illegal recognition of Croatia by the Vatican and Germany in 1991 (condemned by among others the former British Foreign Secretary David Owen) the German intelligence services undermined the State of Yugoslavia, promoted and armed Croatian and Bosnian fascists and manipulated the media to report dubious “massacres” but not report on actual Bosnian and Croatian massacres of Serbs!! For decades the German “political foundation” the Konrad Adenauer Foundation has been active in the Ukraine and provided funds and political support for the rioting and policeman-killing “demonstrators” on the streets of Kiev. Many of the Ukrainian revolutionaries, trying to bring down an elected Government with molotov cocktails and street violence, have blatantly fascist connections with the wartime Ukrainian Nazis who helped enthusiastically in the Jewish holocaust. Many of the latter of course fled through Rome to South America after the war – with even the American Ambassador in Berlin complaining that the Vatican was aiding the escape of murderous fascists.
So what we see in the Ukraine is an action replay of the illegal war against Yugoslavia, the support of German Europe for blatantly fascist movements in Bosnia and Croatia harking back to the war time puppets of Nazi Germany – often using the war time names of Waffen SS divisions. EU support for such movements is mirrored precisely in the nationalistic and fascist parties who are among the leaders of the street violence in Kiev. As in Yugoslavia where the prime motivation of the EU and the USA was to exploit religious differences (Roman Catholic Croats versus Orthodox Serbs, West Europeans against Slavs, Christian Serbs and Croats against Bosnian and Kosovo Muslims) so in the Ukraine the Vatican and the German (Roman Catholic) CDU party’s Konrad Adenauer Foundation have played a substantial role over many years in preparing the way for the present upheavals.
So too has the US Government under Barack Obama – from that peace loving non imperialist party the Democrats! F. William Engdahl from Global Research finds Wasington’s finger prints all over the “spontaneous” revolution in Kiev:
“The US is strongly pushing the Ukraine EU integration just as it had been behind the 2004 failed “Orange Revolution” to split Ukraine from Russia in a bid to isolate and weaken Russia. Now Ukrainians have found evidence of direct involvement of the Belgrade US-financed training group, CANVAS behind the carefully-orchestrated Kiev protests. A copy of the pamphlet that was given out to opposition protestors in Kiev has been obtained. It is a word-for-word and picture-for-picture translation of the pamphlet used by US-financed Canvas organizers in the 2011 Cairo Tahrir Square protests that toppled Hosni Mubarak and opened the door to the US-backed Muslim Brotherhood.”
And we all know how popular the Muslim Brotherhood (close to the Nazis in the 1940s) was in Egypt. The Egyptian counter revolution threw out Obama’s chosen revolutionaries – perhaps the less than grateful Ukrainians will do the same. They did so once before when they voted decisively against the Washington inspired “Orange Revolution”.
Just when in mid February, after many concessions from the Ukrainian Government to the Opposition including the release of rioters from detention and an amnesty from prosecution, Germany’s chosen man in the Ukraine opposition Vitali Klitchko, the former boxer, raised the tone of his rhetoric, suggesting potential violence. He was joined by the so called “First Hundred Group in Kiev of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists,” who called on supporters to bring weapons to the square. The name of this group is a historical reference to the “Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists,” who collaborated with Nazi Germany’s Wehrmacht, helped invade the Soviet Union and participated in the Nazi mass murders of Ukrainian Jews.
Today there are frequent references in the speeches of nationalistic opposition leaders to the “Jewish mafia in Moscow” and one of the parties (Swoboda), called to meetings in the German embassy in Kiev with “the new Ribbentrop” Frank Walter Steinmeier, Germany’s Foreign Minister, has a leader who seeks to rid Ukraine of Jews and was described by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre as one of the most anti-semitic in the world.
Steinmeier, who recently said that eurosceptics and those nations who sought democratic self government were “a danger to peace in Europe” was pleased to meet the leader of an extreme nationalistic and fascist party Oleh Tiahnybok with whom “Germany’s man”, Klitschko has been pleased to collaborate. So Steinmeier who sees democratic sovereigntists in Western Europe as “threats to peace” is pleased to shake hands with openly fascist and nationalistic Ukrainians! Tiahnybok has made clear his desire to rid Ukraine of Jews and other minorities but that seems once again to be acceptable in Germany. As in the promotion of Scottish and Welsh nationalism EU leaders exploit the most nationalistic movements to build their European Empire. Having exploited them in Ukraine to crush a national self-governing democracy they rely on being able to easily mop them up in the new supranational sovereignty of “Europe” as it pursues the old German game of the “Drang nach Osten”.
Although pursuing the same supranational imperialism as the German Right, Germany’s Social Democrat Party’s Friedrich Ebert Foundation, is waking up to the horrific nature of Germany’s allies and is shedding a few crocodile tears – calling Herr Steinmeier’s friends, the Swoboda Party “anti-semitic, xenophobic and racist”. Bit late now I think!
According to the website German Foreign Policy, Swoboda maintains close links with the German Neo Nazi NPD. In the Ukrainian town of Ternopil Swoboda has 35% of the vote and its mayor gave an interview to the NPD’s party newspaper in which he stated that “European Expansion should not stop at the Polish Ukrainian border.”
All reminiscent of the Nazis 1930’s “territorial claims”, all reminiscent of the 1930s BBC promoting appeasement of the Nazis, all reminiscent of the Labour Party in the 1930s voting against British re-armament in the face of Nazi aggression, all reminiscent of the admirers of Hitler in the 1930s – like the Liberal Lloyd George and the Chairman of the BBC Lord Reith!
Perhaps I might refer readers to the many warnings in my own books since 1989 – like Your country Your Democracy, Europe’s Full Circleand Fascist Europe Rising and of course the documentation of the betrayal of the British people and their constitution in the Maastricht Treaty surrender of 1992 (Treason at Maastricht by myself and the late Norris McWhirter).
