As always, Hal Faber’s newsreel wants to sharpen the eye for the details: Sunday’s newsreel is commentary, outlook and analysis. It is backward and forward at the same time.
*** It is true that Chancellor Olaf Scholz did not look particularly happy when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spoke of Israel having committed “50 massacres, 50 holocausts”. That came at a press conference this week when Abbas was asked if he apologized for the terrorist attack at the 1972 Munich Olympics. It is also true that when Abbas answered, government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit apparently in a microsleep had fallen. But after that it got even worse: none other than Felix Klein, the federal government’s anti-Semitism commissioner, babbled: “By relativizing the Holocaust, President Abbas lacked any sensitivity towards us German hosts.”
We Germans, who are world champions in the processing of the time when Germans were gas donors, will not allow us to offer anything like that. A further look at history would be useful here. Because there is the 1999 book by Abu Daoud, one of the two PLO members who planned the terrorist attack. In “Palestine. De Jerusalem a Munich,” he claimed that Mahmoud Abbas, as the PLO’s chief financial officer at the time, knew what he was releasing funds for, which the terrorist command needed. Daoud later denied it in one interviewthat Abbas was privy to the plans. It will probably not be possible to clarify the question, but it shows how justified the question at the press conference was, after which Abbas became abusive.
*** There is another, darker aspect of German sensitivity that needs to be mentioned. None other than the imprisoned RAF member Ulrike Meinhof celebrated the terrorist attack in Munich on September 13, 1972 in a letter to her lawyer as a “deeply proletarian action” and cheered: “She has documented a sensitivity to historical and political contexts that no petty-bourgeois action can ever match; a courage and strength that the revolutionaries can only have from their perfect solidarity with the Palestinian people; a class consciousness that is committed to its historic mission, being avant-garde; a humanity that is determined by the awareness of fighting against that system of domination that is historically the last system of class domination, and at the same time the most cruel, bloodthirsty, most cunning thing that ever existed.” Both the lawyer Heinrich Hannover and fellow prisoner Gudrun Ensslin were appalled by this celebration of “humanity”. That, too, is part of German history, as is the question of a financial one once again Damage payment, 50 years later. Then there would be another German, a security guard.
*** Olaf Scholz may not make a happy figure and have strange memory gaps from his time as Hamburg mayor, but he is not a “fascist pig”. The statement made by the British artist Hamja Ahsan from the “Shy Radicals” at the Documenta has led to Ahsan being featured at the international art show performance ban got. His works of art – advertising installations such as “Fanon Fried Chicken” or “Kaliphate Fried Chicken” – will continue to be shown. You really want to separate art and artist. The old question of what art is allowed to do is back. 1997 it was Christopher Schlingensief, which began with “Kill Helmut Kohl!” caused outrage. The question of anti-Semitism has also been added, as is typical for Documenta, because Ahsan has also installed a neon sign for a halal chicken fry called “Popular Front Liberation Fried Chicken”, which is reminiscent of the “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine” (PFLP). Another drawing by the Tarin Padi collective was discovered in Kassel, showing a Jew with a kippa grabbing money. The kippah was taped over in such a way that the headgear looks like a Moroccan fez. Is that the censorship that that Artist collective Ruangrupa fiercely refuses? At the end there is the exciting question of whether the venerable documenta will survive. “Perhaps we weren’t aware enough of how raw the memory of the war and the Holocaust still is here. Maybe we should have given it more space.”
*** While the citizens with their measuring devices ask for energy wasters or this weekend on Open-door day flow into the cool ministries, politics, large and small, has found its topic: How do people clean themselves properly despite high electricity and gas costs? take a shower or cat wash? Is it better to use a washcloth, or is it better to follow it straight away? Non-bathing trend? Hot water in private households does not even make up 5 percent of gas consumption. Maybe you have to see it as narrow-minded as they do German craftsmen from Halle, who wrote a letter to Olaf Scholz emphasizing that they were not willing to sacrifice the “hard-won standard of living” for Ukraine. A apt comment to this: “The general interest of the butchers in the Saalekreis is meat from the flesh of the general general interest of a well-fed people.” Incidentally, the aforementioned manual trades are the ones with a Poster campaign against climate activists wants to tackle the lack of trainees that everyone has complained about.
Bitter old white men have ensured that a video snippet of Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin went viral, complete with the insinuationthat drugs were involved. The funny video includes the sad news that Sanna Marin promptly joined a drug test underwent to counter the rumours. The story of Melinda Gates-French, who is now a Teacher wants to work to teach other (wealthy) women the most important tricks of the charitable use of donations. Well, one may argue whether that is work. Meanwhile, her ex also went to school and got one medicine bag sewn.
“We don’t need a strong man
Because we are strong enough ourselves
We know what to do ourselves
Our head is big enough”
sang Clay Stones Shards fifty years ago. Something is being done in Berlin today that is long overdue: the city is getting one Rio Reiser Square. Who remembers Heinrich von Prussia, who was actually never really in Berlin and lived in Rome when he was ailing, but he Heinrichplatz gave his name. Few remember the attempt to rename the place “workplace”, because it has to be somewhere when people and dogs are in the home office. So now Rio Reiser Square, as a place to dream that the winter is over. It could be a little bigger, the space and the dream.
When Sunday ends, the federal government’s double open day in Berlin also ends. That’s why we should remind you of another open day, where not only the door is open, but the whole thing hackerspace, where the galactic beings who call themselves hackers, hacks, makers and infonauts meet. Of course, Berliners have to travel, as the list of cities in which spaces are open shows. All curious people are welcome, even anthroposophists: “In my opinion, computers and television have an impact in education more destructive than that of the atomic bomb. The bomb creates devastation that can be seen and loathed; the destruction of television and computers is imperceptible, and hundreds of millions are within embarked on this process, which is proving to be a one-way street.As a consequence, the adults of the future, who have had (even very little) exposure to computers during their school years, may come to believe that it is natural to engage in social and personal decision-making to delegate computers,” wrote the anthroposophist Valdemar W. Setzer in 1992.
