Israel/ Palestine: The end of the Oslo Peace Agreement and the next round of a coming showdown

Israel/ Palestine: The end of the Oslo Peace Agreement and the next round of a coming showdown

The underlying conflict between Israel and the Palestians is quite obvious. The Oslo Peace agreement is dead and both sides are preparing for a showdown for the aftermath.

Annalena Baerbock’s Foreign Policy: Humanitarian Bellicist or Pacifist Appeaser?

 There is a lot to read about possible government coalitions – from black-green, to the traffic light coalition to R2G. The latter variant is less likely, even if it is painted on the wall by Germany’s right-wing parties as a specter for the purpose of the election campaign. While SPIEGEL, Stern, SZ, FR and other media are very Baerbock-friendly, Springer’s BILD and Welt, Burdas Focus in combination with Jan Fleischhauer and Sahra Wagenknecht; Yippens Merkur now fire at the Greens…

Annalena Baerbrocks Aussenpolitik: Humanitäre Bellizistin oder pazifistische Appeaserin?

Viel ist zu lesen über mögliche Regierungskoalitionen- von schwarz-grün, zum Ampelkoalition zu R2G.wobei letztere Varante ja weniger wahrscheinlich ist, auch wenn sie von Deutschlands rechten Parteien als Schreckgespenst zwecks Wahkkampf an die Wand gemalt wird. Während SPIEGEL, Stern, SZ, FR und andere Medien sehr Baerbockfreundlich sind, haben Springers BILD und Welt, Burdas Focus in Kombination mit Jan Fleischhauer und Sahra Wagenknecht und Yippens Münchner Merkur sich nun auf die Grünen und Baerbock eingeschossen, wobei die Konservativen und die AfD die…

Chad and the Sahel: Pacification or Europe´s new Afghanistan in Africa?

In the last weeks, several columns of rebel fighters have entered Chad from neighboring Libya with the intention of unseating long-time strongman and friend of the West Idriss Déby Itno, Chad’s ruler for the past thirty years.

Destabilization of the Balkan: EU membership or border revisions?

Destabilization of the Balkan: EU membership or border revisions?

However ethnic tensions are increasing in the Balkan. Russia, China, Turkey and some Eastern European countries try to get spheres of influence in the Balkan and the Western military is still deployed in the Kosovo to prevent bloodshed between Serbs and Kosovo Albanians while Putin´s FSB tried to…

Uygurs: The CCP´s official propaganda line

As the discussion about a boycott of the Olympics in Beijing 2022 started and in Western countries the formation of supporters, so called “anti-China forces” and pro-Uygur forces accelerates, the Global Times tries to make counterpropaganda. The Global Times now published an infographic about the official CCP arguments against the allegations of pro-Uygur supporters, especially against Adrian Zenz who spoke of genocide, ethnocide, mass deportation of 1 million Uygurs, forced sterilization and abortion and forced labour which we want to…

Black Lives Matter, police brutality and the state of emergency

Black Lives Matter, police brutality and the state of emergency

I think the problem is more complex than Black Live matters describes the racial problem.
