das hat es alles nicht gegeben

sagen die mullahs, aber die menschen sind nicht mehr da. weg. heimlich in einem namenlosen massengrab verscharrt, oder nach einer "sonderbehandlung" (zumeist verbrennen der leichen, um folterspuren zu verwischen) an die trauernden familien "ausgeliefert"...

westerwelle im iran

100.000$, das ist das handgeld. so, wie annodazumal die ddr ihre oppositionellen (oder was sie dafür hielt) einsperrte, um sie dann an den bösen, bösen westen gegen valuta zu verscherbeln, so ruft auch der mullah ein kopfgeld für die deutschen reporter auf, die seit mehreren monaten in einem foltergefängnis festgehalten werden, weil sie der "spionage" bezichtigt werden.

der eigentliche preis für die freilassung der bild-spione und mutmasslichen spinger-zionisten ist aber wohl eher der sanft erzwungene besuch eines eu-aussenminister, der nun mit den mullahs die lage in nahost erörtern darf. schicke bilder für das iranische staats-tv.

wenn westerwelle eier aus stahl hätte, würde er grell geschminkt im ledermini dort aufkreuzen und über die menschenrechtssituation im iran dozieren. oder wenigstens ein rotes oder rosa schleifchen tragen, das die iranische zensur vor der ausstrahlung wegretouschieren muss.

aber vermutlich muss er gute miene zum bösen spiel machen, damit die zwei reporter heim dürfen. die zwei dürfen sich bei westerwelle bedanken, dass der diese unangenehme reise zu diesen noch unangenehmeren "gastgebern" gemacht hat...

wo sind eigentlich unsere ehemaligen studentenrevoluzzer?

ich finde es sehr traurig, dass die 68er generation kein mitleid mit ihren studentischen kollegen von heute hat, die - anders als die ehemaligen deutschen studientenrevoluzzer - gegen ein reales faschistisches regime revoltieren und dafür nicht selten reale folter und exekution über sich ergehen lassen müssen (und nicht so eine weicheiige "kontaktsperrenfolter", die es ohnehin nie gegeben hat, schliesslich war die BRD seinerzeit auch kein faschistischer staat).

die 68er hatten seinerzeit gegen den persischen schah protestiert (siehe kurras/ohnesorg) und dabei mitgeholfen, den mullahs den weg zum religiösen faschismus zu bereiten.

erwächst nicht gerade daraus eine verpflichtung, nun endlich mal gegen wirklichen faschismus anzukämpfen?

erst recht dann, wenn ich bei seiner machtergreifung die steigbügel gehalten habe, weil ich zu dämlich war, den echten faschismus zu erkennen (was erklärt, warum man die brd für "faschistisch hielt, die mullahs aber nicht).

wenn man den "antifaschismus" schon als lebensmotto und -ziel definiert hat und in ermangelung eines echten faschismus vor ort (die ungnade der späten geburt) notgedrungen gegen den kapitalismus völlig gefahrlos agitierte, dann wäre doch JETZT eine tolle möglich, es allen zweiflern an der eigenen courage zu zeigen und die studentenbewegung im iran tatkräftig zu unterstützen.

aber leider stehen derzeit an den iranischen botschaften und konsulaten nur ein paar versprengte flüchtlinge aus dem iran, die das glück hatten, die faschistischen folterknäste lebend zu verlassen. eine claudia roth, einen normal paech oder einen rupert neudeck sehe ich da jedenfalls nicht :(

schade drum, es wäre eine gute chance gewesen...

wie vorhergesagt

in syrien fallen die "tage des zorns" aus, weil assad keinen bock drauf hat. wenigstens muss die syrische diktatur nicht massenhaft jugendliche einsperren und foltern. sondern nur punktuell...

und plötzlich bejubeln alle das neokonservative konzept

diese depesche ist interessant.

sie berichtet von ägyptischen oppositionellen, die 2008 (unter bush) in den usa zum "youth movement summit" fuhren und bei der rückkehr in kairo verhaftet wurden. in der depesche wird berichtet, dass die ägyptischen blogger, twitterer und facebookfans unterstützung bei einer "revolution der opposition im jahr 2011" zugesagt wurde. auf ihrer reise haben sie auch den us kongress und ein paar senatoren und think tanks besucht.

bei ihrer verhaftung in kairo wurden ihnen dann unterlagen abgenommen, der ägyptische geheimdienst dürfte also bestens im bilde gewesen sein. ist das der grund, warum mubarak obamas viel beachtete rede in kairo ostenativ geschwänzt hatte?

die neokonservativen unter bush bilden eine ägyptische jugendopposition aus und obama kommt nach kairo und spricht von freiheit, demokratie und reformen.

nach dieser depesche ist die ägypitsche revolution ganz im sinne der usa. nach tunesien nun ägypten. und für syrien stehen bereits die nächten demos im nahen osten an ( die seite, die 2008 die plattform für die ägyptische opposition stellte, um in den usa für sich zu werben, war auch bei der "grünen revolution" im iran im juni 2009 prominent beteiligt. deren gründer, ein beamter des aussenministeriums unter condoleeza rice und hillay clinton, war es, der bei twitter intervenierte, um wartungsarbeiten zu verschieben, damit die protestierenden im iran weiter kommunizieren konnten. dazu später mehr...

hier wird also der traum der neokonservativen wahr, wenn auch mit anderen mitteln. während bush auf krieg setzte, um den irak und afghanistan zu demokratisieren, setzt obama wohl eher auf volksaufstände ddr-style. das problem ist: man wird damit nur die "moderaten" diktaturen demokratisieren. die nichtmoderate fraktion, z.b. der iran, hat gezeigt, wie man mit reformrevolutionen umgehen muss, um sie scheitern zu lassen. brutale niederschlagung mit waffengewalt, folter und totale überwachung. insofern können sich die menschen in syrien oder libyen ausmalen, was passieren wird, wenn sie auf die strasse gehen: tiananmen-style.

ob tunesien, ägypten und/oder jemen nun zu demokratischen republiken werden und wie die islamisten bei freien wahlen abschneiden werden, steht in den sternen. dass aber die islamisten, wenn sie an die macht kommen, die demokratie flugs abschaffen werden, daran besteht wohl kein zweifel. mullahs, taliban, hamas. gottesstaaten kennen keine demokratie. das liegt in der natur der sache. im gottesstaat machen die vertreter gottes die gesetze und nicht die vertreter des volkes. wählen kann man eigentlich nur gott. und wenn man es nicht macht, macht das nix, gott weiss es eh besser und korrigiert deine fehlentscheidung.
