In the 🇩🇪 discourse on sending heavy arms to 🇺🇦, political theorist Jürgen #Habermas weighed in through an article in the Süddeutsche today. A quick🧵with a summary and some thoughts in English, for my non-German-speaking colleagues. Original article here: sueddeutsche.de/projekte/artik…
Habermas begins that 77yrs after WWII and somewhat threatened peace, war returned to our doorstep unleashed by 🇷🇺. The war dominates our media in an unprecedented way, and the ‘calculated publicity of an unpredictable war‘ may impress the older gen more than media-native young 1/
Habermas argues that with drastic sanctions against 🇷🇺, 🇩🇪 became party to the war. That is why every military step should consider if it constitutes formal entry/participation in the war by Putin’s definition. As such, there is no space for ‘risky gambling’ in decision-making 2/

Aua, was für ein ignoranter & perfider Tweet.
▶️Zu den 27mio zählen die ukrainischen Opfer (8mio).
▶️Es gab Nazi-Kollab.(so wie in allen Ländern), aber mehr Ukrainer (6-7mio) kämpften in der Sowjetarmee gg. Nazi-Deutschland.
▶️Azov heute(!)≠Nazi
Besser @UmlandAndreas folgen.
Rolle von Bandera (kein 'Held', aber saß lange im dt. KZ.) und der OUN, wird in bestimmten dt. linken Kreisen gerneüberhöht dargestellt. Ohne russ. Nazi-Kollaboration Mal zu thematisieren.
Im wahrsten Sinne sollte man echt Mal auf die eigenen dt. Gräuel in der Ukraine eingehen.
Ich erinnere mich gerade an diese "erwachsene" Interaktion mit dem "Autonomie Mag" vom 9.März. Fast zwei Wochen nach russ. Angriffskrieg, hatte der @VVNBdaFfm sonderbaren Artikel geteilt.
Beachtet die Aussage "kriegführen [sic] ist noch kein Faschismus, in keiner [..] Definition" ImageImageImageImage

Il presidente serbo #Vucic, fresco di rielezione, ha definito "insensate e immorali" le sanzioni contro la #Russia, aggiungendo che Mosca "ci ha sempre sostenuto sul tema dell'integrità territoriale. Non dimentichiamo il 2015 e l'iniziativa britannica di dichiarare i serbi 1/10
colpevoli di genocidio".
Di cosa parla #Vucic? Della volta che la Gran Bretagna propose al Consiglio di Sicurezza #Onu di approvare una risoluzione sul massacro di #Srebrenica, avvenuto l'11 luglio 1995 ad opera delle forze militari serbo-bosniache guidate da Ratko #Mladic 2/10
contro migliaia di musulmani bosniaci. Le vittime furono 8.372.
Erano i giorni della guerra di Yugoslavia, con la zona di #Srebrenica sotto la tutela dell'ONU, la cui presenza era incarnata da tre compagnie olandesi di caschi blu. Il 9 luglio le truppe di Mladic iniziarono 3/10

Thread on the another crazy weekend in Serbian gov-controlled media landscape: Firstly, here's a front page of Serbian gov-owned tabloid carries an "interview": "#Srebrenica, #Recak and #Bucha are a face of same propaganda". Genocide denialism at its worst. (1) Image
Yesterday, the main title in another tabloid: "DRAMA! NATO fighters are threatening Air Serbia civilian flights". The article says Westerners are "dangerously provoking" Serbian airliner because it dares to continue flying to Russia. (2) Image
Another crazy gem: While Swiss police has actually declared ex Swiss politician Dick Marty is under protection due to credible assassination threats by the "radical elements of Serbian intel", Serbian tabloids are blaming MI6 for a special operation to make "Serbs look bad." (3) Image

There’s been discussions about #time and #accountability lately, and I’ve gotten questions about it. “When could trials begin?” “Could #Putin be prosecuted? When? Where” I’ll leave the “where” aside now but here’s a short 🧵on time. #Russia #Ukraine #Justice
There is, naturally, a sense of urgency when we see injustice and victims like those in #Bucha, #Mariupol, etc. People want justice and they want it now. But time can be a friend of justice, not always an enemy, especially in leadership cases. Let me tell you how.
In one article, I talk about #RadovanKaradzic and #RatkoMladic - high-ranking officials charged with crimes in Bosnia, e.g. the siege of #Sarajevo and the genocide in #Srebrenica. They were fugitives for years and most of us did not expect them to be arrested. We almost gave up.

🧵 ./1 Man mano che le forze di occupazione russe si allontaneranno verranno scoperti altri siti di atrocità
compiute in Ucraina e possiamo anticipare che la 'fase di negazione" della campagna russa seguirà uno schema familiare.

#CriminiDiGuerra #UkraineRussiaWar
./2 Anche in questo caso il negazionismo nazionalista serbo del genocidio bosniaco è istruttivo. Nonostante le scene caotiche di #Bucha, il primo passo di questo processo è già avvenuto. Le forze russe hanno già preso misure per oscurare l'entità delle loro uccisioni di massa.
./3 Nei prossimi giorni/settimane aspettatevi fosse comuni occultate che verranno alla luce. È possibile che nelle aree lungo il confine #Bielorussia/#Russia, persone e corpi siano stati effettivamente trasportati oltre confine per essere uccisi/seppelliti lí.

1/ Is anyone surprised that Moscow would - immediately - claim that Russian atrocities in #Bucha were “staged”? Does anyone remember that Serbian President #Vucic – two decades after the fact – claimed that Serbian atrocities in #Racak, Kosovo were “fabricated”? 🧵
2/ Is everyone aware #Belgrade is revising its own past in the #Balkans – and distorting present reality of Russia’s brutal invasion? That there is a straight line between Vucic’s denial of Racak and Belgrade’s promotion of Russian aggression in #Ukraine?
3/ No. Accomplished @nytimes journalist @ATHigginsNYT downplays the Serbian government role in fostering adulation of #Putin, support for Russian invasion and Russian and Chinese #authoritarianism. Instead, we get more vox-pop ‘Balkan ghosts.’

Ich habe heute meinen Austritt aus der @humunion erklärt.
Dieser Schritt fällt mir nach mehr als 30 Jahren Mitgliedschaft schwer, aber ich sehe angesichts d Erklärung d HU-Bundesvorstands z Überfall #Russlands auf die #Ukraine keine Perspektive mehr, in der HU weiter mitzuwirken
Zwar verurteilt die HU den völkerrechtswidrigen #Angriffskrieg Russlands. Dann folgt jedoch - ähnlich wie bei den Stellungnahmen von AfD und Linker - ein großes „Aber“, das die #Völkerrechtsverletzung relativiert und Verständnis für das russische Handeln aufbringt.
Das beginnt schon mit dem wiederholten Hinweis auf Russlands angebliches „geopolitisches Bedürfnis, im Club der Weltmächte mitzuwirken“, dem „seitens der Westmächte durch die stete #NATO-Osterweiterung begegnet worden“ sei.

In 2016, my feminist sister & comrade @AhNidzara took me to #Srebrenica where Bosnian Serb forces systematically murdered 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men & boys in the worst crime of the Bosnian war. It remains the only massacre on European soil since World War II to be ruled a genocide
As many have pointed out, media coverage and political statements around #UkraineRussiaWar remind us that sympathy and support during war is never equal: it depends on how you look and how you pray and is undergirded by white supremacy, anti-Blackness, and Islamophobia.
All of Europe—the entire world—knew of the horrors that Bosnian Muslims were being subjected to right there in Europe. But they were the “wrong” kind of “blonde and blue eyed” and “civilized” Europeans.

To think about
It is not Ukraine. It is Belgrade under US/NATO bombing in 1999 for 78 days almost continuously.
At least 6,000 civilians were killed.
17 years ago today, on March 24, 1999, NATO began a 78-day deadly & devastating US-backed intervention of Yugoslavia. It was the first time in history that the NATO decided they would attack a country without the approval of the UN Security Council.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (#ICTY) in The Hague has quietly cleared the late Serbian president, #SlobodanMilosevic, of #warcrimes committed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, including the massacre at #Srebrenica.

Hoy es el día de la estadidad de #Bosnia Herzegovina, aniversario de la sesión de 1943 en que el Consejo Estatal Antifascista para la Liberación Nacional declaró voluntad autonómica.
Pero también es el aniversario de la muerte de #Maradona.

¿Hay relación entre Diego y Bosnia?🤔 ImageImage
#Bosnia declaró su independencia en 1992 y ese mismo año nació su asociación nacional de fútbol. Pero digamos que, de facto, en la realidad, no fue un país independiente hasta 1995, con el final de la guerra.

El 1° partido oficial fue contra Albania, el 30/11/1995. Image
El 19 de septiembre de 1995, apenas 2 meses antes de aquel primer partido oficial, #Bosnia seguía en guerra.

En julio había sido la masacre de #Srebrenica, el sitio de Sarajevo ya había superado los tres años y medio.

Entonces aparece Maradona en esta historia. ImageImageImageImage

People in Sarajevo, Srebrenica, Jajce and other places are scared. For the second time in less than 30 years, our country is threatened to fall apart.

That's why I told @MersihaGadzo I'm worried. Peace in BiH is at stake - and we all know what that means.

Ahmed Hrustanović (@E71HRG), an imam from #Srebrenica told @AJEnglish it would be a defeat of humanity if the Republika Srpska forms an army that committed a genocide.

His father, both grandfathers, four uncles and other relatives were killed during the #Srebrenica genocide.
Munira Subašić, president of the Mothers of Srebrenica association said the current situation reminds her of the 1990s before the war broke out:

"Dodik is doing his job, he’s not going back, but the international community which betrayed us in 1995 is trying to betray us again."

In the 1980s and 90s the Seiko 5 Automatic wristwatch, which used the motion of the wearer to stay wound up and working, was popular among Bosnians.

After the #genocide in #Srebrenica, investigators used these watches to estimate the time and date their owner had been murdered.
Bosnian Serb forces had denied they had committed a genocide executing innocent civilian Muslims. They claimed the mass graves contained men killed in battle as part of the war.

However, investigators found evidence the men and boys in the graves had been blindfolded...
... Some were naked or wearing civilian clothing.

Several Seiko watches were also found. As they were kept wound up by motion, the watches stopped 36-48 hours after the wearer stopped moving.

High Representative #Inzko used his so-called Bonn Powers to amend the 🇧🇦 Criminal Code & introduce sanctions for “glorification of war criminals convicted by final and binding judgments and the denial of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.”

My thread🧵👇🏼1/18
Survivors & families of war victims, individuals & institutions active in human rights, remembering the past & reconciliation #welcomed #Inzko’s #decision. Most of them advocated for such legislative changes for years. Even Inzko promissed them many times to make it happen. (2)
As reported by the #Srebrenica #Memorial, denial & glorification of war crimes, incl.genocide, take place on regular & systematic basis in 🇧🇦 & the region =🇷🇸.
Ministries finance books on or by convicted war criminals, governments commission reports full of denial of facts.. (3)

Photo from #Srebrenica when Milo and Cedo are carrying a coffin got our attention. We wonder if they knew that they actually carry the coffin of the Muslim army soldier killed in a minefield? Read this very important thread about the deception called "Genocide in Srebrenica" ⤵️
In the photos where the two of them wear a coffin, the coffin is numbered with 1. We saw from the Muslim #Bosnia media that´s the coffin of the youngest victim who was buried this year and whose story traveled the world and became a symbol of yesterday's funeral in #Potocari⤵️
The coffin contained the remains of a young man born in 1979th in #Ljeskovik named Azmir (Aziz) Osmanović, who was only 16 years old in July 1995, and was buried yesterday as the youngest victim. His remains were found two years ago at the Poljanci site⤵️

Exclusive map and a thread about what has really happened in #Srebrenica. How military composition under command of the Muslim 28th Division left their families and started to break through from the surroundings through the territory of the Republic of Srpska towards Tuzla. ⤵️
During the breakthrough, they lost between 4500 and 5500 soldiers in the fighting. All soldiers killed in combat were declared victims of war crimes, in addition to the captured comrades who were captured, not exchanged, and shot dead, they are actually a victims of war crimes.⤵️
This is the essence of the manipulation that has been projected for decades by the radical Islamist party #SDA in order to create an Islamist state of #Bosnia with its foreign helpers !!!⤵️

Aktuell entsendet die russische Armee massive Militärverbände in Richtung Ukraine. Sowohl auf der Krim als auch östlich des Donbas werden Truppen zusammengezogen. Auch die Luftwaffe verlegt nahe der Ukraine. Die USA haben du zudem verdächtige Funksprüche abgefangen.
#PutinImKrieg ImageImageImageImage
Weiterer massiver russische Militärkonvoi gegenüber Mariupol auf der anderen Seite des Asow‘schen Meeres. 70 Kilometer Luft- beziehungsweise Wasserlinie. ImageImageImageImage
Die Hinweise verdichten sich, dass Putin schweres Gerät zum überqueren von Flüssen in die Ukraine schmuggelt.
Dazu scheint er teils zu kleine (weniger befahrene) Straßen zu nutzen, so, dass es sogar zu Unfällen kommt.

Jasenovac concentration camp was the largest extermination camp in the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) and occupied Yugoslavia during World War II, between 1941-1945.
Victims were ethnic Serbs, Jews and Roma.

Krunoslav Stjepan Draganović (30 October 1903 – 5 July 1983) was a Bosnian Croat Roman Catholic priest associated with the ratlines which aided the escape of Ustaše war criminals from Europe after World War II while he was living and working at the College of St. Jerome in Rome.

THREAD As I have my #Bosnia #War diaries out & it's 28 years from 1st #UnitedNations food convoy into #Srebrenica, 6 months under siege:
On 25/11/1992 UN French Gen Morillon announces a convoy with 150 tons of food, some of it also to go to #Serb town of Bratunac, not besieged /2
2/ 26/11 UN convoy reaches Bratunac, is met by "spontaneous resistance" by local Serbs (some bussed in from Serbia across Drina river). Bosnian Serb military commanders declare themself helpless as "people are democratically expressing their anger at UN feeding enemy 'Turks'"/3
3/ 27/11 Same "spontaneity" again. Several hundred "local widows" telling UN (in same phrases) they will not let them through. Dutch convoy commander arrogant & incompetent, Beligian Army truckies helpless, Ukrainian escort disinterested, BSArmy saying cannot oppose people. /4

3. These 8 covers show pro-Serbian feeling & encouragements pushed in #Paris during #WW1.
At the time, #France was trying to obtain the establishment of a #Balkan front in order to help #Serbia, pincer #Quadruplice & alleviate Western front.
80,000 French died there.
And we won.. ImageImageImageImage

#Bosnie
Dès le 11 juillet 1995, des militaires serbes accompagnés de miliciens massacrent + de 8000 bosniaques.

C'est le pire massacre en Europe depuis la fin de la WWII.

Nous sommes le 11 juillet 2020 et voici mon #thread sur le tristement célèbre massacre de #Srebrenica.
[ Petite précision linguistique :

- LES BOSNIENS, ce sont les habitants de la Bosnie-Herzégovine.
Être bosnien, c'est une nationalité.

- LES BOSNIAQUES, ce sont les habitants musulmans de Bosnie. ]
Ce thread me tenait à coeur.

C'est avec une grande émotion que je vais vous parler du massacre de Srebrenica, cette même émotion avec laquelle mes parents (tunisiens) m'expliquaient les évènements étant petit.

Dans leur yeux, je voyais la colère et la frustration... Image
