Austrian lawmakers are expected to push through a vote of no confidence in the government of chancellor Sebastian Kurz in the next hour or so. @FT here in an increasingly rowdy parliament in Vienna #IbizaAffäre #EuropaWahl2019 #EuropeanElection2019
Big sustained applause from the ÖVP for chancellor Kurz. We’re three hours into the debate. Kurz started out looking pretty cool and collected but he’s looking increasingly rattled after dozens of speeches from opposition benches attacking him. #Kurz #Austria #IbizaAffäre
BREAKING: Austria’s government has fallen. Parliament has passed a no confidence motion against Sebastian Kurz’s administration

This warning is most pertinent to the state-level CDU organizations in eastern Germany, where an expected increase in support for the far-right AfD in elections this summer will probably result in exactly that temptation.
#AfD #CDU
11/16
The deeper problem is that the far-right electorate exists. As @Yascha_Mounk put it: "Clearly, about a quarter of the Austrian public is comfortable with a party that openly attacks the rule of law and tolerates extreme anti-Semites in its midst."
12/16
In my view, there is probably not a way to durably marginalize the parties this electorate votes for if the traditional center-right refuses to co-opt some of their positions. This is far from being a purely Austrian problem.

@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus 1. Why do I have a problem?
I'm in Germany.
But would not rule out intelligence services being involved in the #Strache-Video.
@cicero_online mentions #Mossad (Israeli secret service) - I'm not certain.
German #BND - I would not rule out!
#IbizaGate
@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus @cicero_online 2. #Boehmermann (GER comedian): Knew about #Strache-Leak in April 2019, but I think this is too big for him.
"Zentrum für Politische Schönheit" (#ZPS from #Ruch, is a far left leaning outfit engaged in "political happenings") may be involved. I also posted names.
@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus @cicero_online 3. My take: The #Strache-Video
- was planned for a long time
- planning includes befriending & gaining the trust of #Gudenus
- Gudenus introduced the "fake billionaire" to #Strache
- the #villa had to be set up (cameras & more): Ask re owner, who rented it out?

🔥WHOA🔥

#Austria’s vice-chancellor and leader of the far-right FPO party—Heinz-Christian Strache—RESIGNS after video shows him and FPO’s parliamentary leader promising public contracts to a fake #Russian🇷🇺backer in return for campaign help.

@thespybrief
theguardian.com/world/2019/may…
The videos show Strache and FPO’s parliamentary leader (Johann Gudenus) talking to the “niece” of a #Russian🇷🇺oligarch about how she can buy #Austria’s largest tabloid, to which Strache replies that the paper could make staff changes and help the FPO in its election campaign.🤬
Strache, whose party’s 1st leader was a *former SS officer*, suggests partly privatizing #Austria’s public broadcaster to make it state-run propaganda and says (ILLEGAL) political donations should be made through a foundation linked to the FPO in order to escape legal scrutiny.🤬

Below is an interesting #statistics on the number of #Germans killed in #WW2;I do not retweet this to proclaim this as the truth, but rather as a proposal which has to be corroborated or refuted. I don't know who created this statistics, or how.
My translation:
'The casualties..
.. of the German People during and after the Second World War

Deaths:

[ca.] 3.250*10^6 German soldiers,
[ca.] 1.000*10^6 women, children and eldery fell victim to terror bombings in violation of international law,
..
..
[ca.] 3.242*10^6 German soldiers died as prisoners of war of the allied forces,

1/ As you may have noticed, I visited snowy #Austria recently. My aim was to do a story on town of #ZellAmSee which is very popular among Arab tourists.

Due to its natural beauty, many tourists from Gulf view this as "paradise on earth".

Check story:

2/ Yearly 300.000 Arab tourists visit Austria. 150.000 (!) of them go to town of Zell am See, which itself only has 9.000 inhabitants.

So #ZellAmSee is very popular among Arab tourists. Some sign boards now in Arabic. Town happy because Arab tourists bring in lots of money.
3/ Most Arab tourists in Zell am See are from the Gulf. Especially during summer, they escape the heat in Gulf and enjoy Zell am See's lush green mountains &beautiful lake.

But Arabs now also come in winter. They typically stay a week &then continue to Vienna or other parts EU.

1/ Alert: This is not a new @DowntonAbbey trailer.

This is me taking a ride on an old steam train in snowy #Austria.

Most romantic trip ever. 👇👇👇

2/ This steam train in #Austria is from year 1913 (106 yrs old).

It was built couple of years before end of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Train was made in Budapest for #Sarajevo, which at that time was still part of Austria-Hungary.

@akhbar
3/ This steam train departs from the Austrian ski resort of Zell am See and arrives in #Krimml, famous for its huge waterfalls.

The return trip takes about 5 hours and totals around 110 kms.

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

But thread below on some of these jarring figures:
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

1/
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 85% of Jews consider #Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country;

➡️ 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year, with those being visibly Jewish most effected;

Nov. 11 1918: The last Austro-Hungarian Emperor Charles I signs a proclamation in which he "relinquish(ed) every participation in the administration of the State" marking the end of the 600-year rule of the Habsburgs over #Austria. #TodayInHistory #ArmisticeDay100 #Armistice100
On 13 November, Charles IV issued a similar (Eckartsau) proclamation for #Hungary. In neither declaration did the emperor use the word 'abdication'. Indeed, he tried to reclaim the Hungarian throne twice in 1921. "I did not abdicate, and never will," he wrote to a confidant.
Altogether the losses of Austria-Hungary during #WW1 can be estimated at around 2 million (excluding direct civilian war deaths). #ArmisticeDay100 #ArmisticeDay

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
