Racist Site Wants Finnish Leadership Dead (Finland)

National Bureau of Investigation is examining an online hate site that calls for the murder of leading Finnish politicians as well as immigrants. The Finnish-language site is registered to a long-time American neo-Nazi.
One of the sites videos was posted on the Goggle owned siteYou Tube.

The anonymous author behind the site's writing is suspected of illegal threats and the incitement of hatred against an ethnic group.
The site calls for the hanging or shooting of much of the Finnish political leadership, including President Tarja Halonen and Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen. The site also featured a hit list of 50 Finns, named for their role in promoting multiculturalism.
The site is registered to an American named Gary Lauck, a neo-Nazi who became known in 1980s and 90s for smuggling neo-Nazi literature into Europe. Lauck, who served time in a German prison in the late 1990s, later moved his propaganda online.
Göran Wennqvist from the National Bureau of Investigation says it’s been difficult to trace the site’s administrator. Finnish police officials have cooperated with US authorities in the case.
“The concept of freedom of speech is broader in the United States than in Finland. But to my knowledge, these types of direct threats are against the law there too,” says Finnish state prosecutor Mika Illman.
Finnish police are increasingly investigating websites that support intolerance.
 Last week threats of violence were made against Minister of Migration and European Affairs Astrid Thors on Facebook.


Former leader Radovan Karadzic has said the Serb cause in the Bosnian war was "just and holy" as he began his defence at his genocide trial at The Hague. Mr Karadzic, who led the Bosnian Serbs during the war in the 1990s, said there was a core group of Muslims in Bosnia - then and now - who wanted 100% power. Speaking in The Hague, he insisted the Serbs were only acting in self-defence. He insists he is innocent of all 11 charges from the 1992-95 Bosnian war, including genocide and war crimes. The trial had been adjourned since November and the judge rejected a new request for a further postponement.
'Mere mortal'
Mr Karadzic, 64, suspended his boycott and appeared in court along with his lawyer on Monday as the trial resumed. "I will defend that nation of ours and their cause that is just and holy," Mr Karadzic said in translated comments at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). "I stand here before you not to defend the mere mortal that I am, but to defend the greatness of a small nation in Bosnia-Hercegovina, which for 500 years has had to suffer and has demonstrated a great deal of modesty and perseverance to survive in freedom," he told the court. "We have a good case. We have good evidence and proof." After his initial remarks, Mr Karadzic began laying out a detailed account of the events that led up to the outbreak of the war. The wartime leader is trying to show that there was no joint criminal enterprise - no plan or plot - to carry out the genocide or "ethnic cleansing", but that Serbs were only defending themselves from Muslim aggression, says the BBC's Dominic Hughes at the trial.

'War trick'
Mr Karadzic pointed to one defining event of the 44-month siege of Sarajevo - the 1994 attack on a market in which nearly 70 people died - saying it was a stage-managed "trick" for which Serbian forces were falsely blamed. Mr Karadzic showed the court pictures of an empty marketplace, claiming it was the scene shortly before, as he put it, hundreds appeared and the attack was reported. He is expected to present a two-day opening statement before prosecutors present their first witness on Wednesday. Mr Karadzic faces two charges of genocide - including the killing in Srebrenica of more than 7,000 men and boys - as well as nine other counts including murder, extermination, persecution and forced deportation. Prosecutors say he orchestrated a campaign of "ethnic cleansing" against Muslims and Croats in eastern Bosnia to create an ethnically pure Serbian state. In his opening statement last October, prosecutor Alan Tieger said Mr Karadzic "harnessed the forces of nationalism, hatred and fear to pursue his vision of an ethnically segregated Bosnia". Mr Karadzic had boycotted the proceedings, insisting on more time to prepare his case. In November, the court appointed British lawyer Richard Harvey to take over the defence if he continued his boycott. Mr Karadzic was arrested in Belgrade in 2008 after nearly 13 years on the run. During his time in power, he was president of the self-styled Bosnian Serb Republic and commander of its army during the Bosnian conflict which left more than 100,000 people dead. He is the most significant figure to face justice at this tribunal since the former Yugoslav President, Slobodan Milosevic, who died of a heart attack in 2006 before his own trial was concluded.

The charges
# Eleven counts of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and other atrocities
# Charged over shelling of Sarajevo during the city's siege, in which some 12,000 civilians died
# Allegedly organised the massacre of up to 8,000 Bosniak men and youths in Srebrenica
# Targeted Bosniak and Croat political leaders, intellectuals and professionals
# Unlawfully deported and transferred civilians because of national or religious identity
# Destroyed homes, businesses and sacred sites

When he stepped into court one, Radovan Karadzic appeared relaxed and controlled. He smiled and joked with his legal team, throwing back his head, with its silver mane of hair, as he laughed. Looking out over the top of his glasses, the former Bosnian Serb leader began his defence in typically flamboyant style, welcoming "active and passive" participants to his trial. The 64-year-old remained seated as he began to outline his case at pace. He spoke so fast at times the red-robed lead judge, O-Gon Kwon, had to ask him to slow down for the interpreters translating his words to the watching world. Mr Karadzic appeared to slow a fraction before continuing with a confident zeal, outlining a defence that claimed his people were under attack from Bosnian Muslims. He told the tribunal "their conduct gave rise to our conduct, and that is 100% true".

As reported by Matt Cole for the BBC News


It was the kind of phone call every mother dreads. At 4.24am on 27 March 2003, Erica Duggan was woken by her son Jeremiah, a normally ebullient 22-year-old. "Mum, I'm in trouble," he said. In hushed tones, he told her he was in Germany and began spelling the letters of the place he was staying, "W, i, e, s ...". Then the line went dead.
The next call came from the police. German officers had found Jerry's body three hours later on the side of the B455, a busy dual carriageway running south-east out of the city of Wiesbaden towards the Rhine. Witnesses said a man had scrambled into the centre of the road and was hit by a brown Peugeot 406, and then a blue Volkswagen. By the time paramedics and police arrived, Jerry was dead of head injuries.
The subsequent police investigation was perfunctory, classifying his death as a suicide. Witnesses were allowed to leave the scene, cars were moved before being photographed and an external post-mortem was conducted at a nearby mortuary without any detailed forensic checks.

Few parents would find it easy to accept that their child has committed suicide but for Mrs Duggan, a retired teacher from north London whose Jewish family fled the Nazis in the late 1930s, the idea that her son took his life did not make sense.
"He had so many plans for the future and never showed even the slightest inkling of depression," she told The Independent, in her mother's home in Golders Green. "But it's more than just that. The call I got from him just before he died, that was from someone who desperately wanted to live, who was trying to survive. It wasn't from someone intent on killing himself."
Mrs Duggan, in deep doubt of the German police belief that her son's death was suicide, hired private investigators and forensic experts to look at the evidence again, eventually selling her house to pay the costs and moving in with her ageing mother. Their reports have cast serious question marks over the official portrayal of Jerry as suicidal, suggesting instead a man who was either desperately trying to escape unknown assailants when he stumbled out on the dual carriageway, or who had been attacked before he got there.

Yesterday, armed with this new evidence, the Duggan family's lawyers went to the High Court after the Attorney General, Baroness Scotland, took the highly unusual step of granting them permission to seek a second inquest into Jerry's death.
The first inquest, in 2004, rejected the German police suicide suggestion, and returned an open verdict, finding instead that he had died in a "state of terror". But investigators failed to look wider. Supporters hope a fresh inquest will finally force German police to reinvestigate why a British Jew died in mysterious circumstances after spending five days with a far-right political cult led by a convicted fraudster who is known for his virulent anti-Semitic views.
Jerry had been a student at the British Institute in Paris but he had travelled to Wiesbaden to attend what he thought would be an anti-Iraq war conference. "He was an idealistic boy who wanted to change the world," his mother said. "He was angry about the upcoming war and wanted to do something about it. But he was also excited because he was beginning to learn about politics."
The conference was organised by the Schiller Institute, an extremist political think-tank linked to a right-wing conspiracy theorist, Lyndon LaRouche. He is an 87-year-old convicted fraudster who has made eight unsuccessful attempts to run as an independent candidate in the US presidential elections. Some of LaRouche's more unusual claims include that the British monarchy and MI6 are behind the global drugs trade.
In the States, he is largely regarded as an amusing sideshow whose apocalyptic writings attract vulnerable people looking for answers. But underlying much of his work is a deep anti-Semitism that describes the world as being controlled by a mass Zionist conspiracy of bankers, lobbyists and politicians.
The Schiller Institute, run by his German-born wife, spreads that message around Europe; on the night Jerry died, LaRouche addressed the conference in Wiesbaden. In Jerry's notes on the five days he spent there, Mrs Duggan discovered that her son had become aware of the anti-Semitic agenda of many LaRouche followers and had spoken out against them. "There were a lot of comments blaming the Jews for Iraq and he got up to say that he was Jewish and he didn't support the war," she said. "Whatever happened it's clear he fell out with these people very quickly."
La Rouche blames the CIA, MI6 and the KGB for any political or media criticism aimed in his direction. He described the Duggan case as a hoax contrived by "admirers of [former US Vice-President] Dick Cheney and Tony Blair". Mrs Duggan's efforts to investigate her son's death is, he says, a "smear".

Paul Canning, a former Scotland Yard forensic officer, has studied the 79 photographs taken by German investigators of the crash site and Jerry's body. German police said he was hit by the Peugeot, then run over by the Volkswagen. But Mr Canning could not find evidence of tyre marks on the body. Nor was there any blood, flesh or hair on either car.
Mr Canning, who has investigated hundreds of road fatalities, believes this is "inconceivable", reporting that he had never come across a high-speed collision of a car and pedestrian where no traces of blood are found. "I do not believe the images depict how Jerry came to meet his premature death," he added. "It is possible that Jerry lost his life elsewhere, prior to being placed at the scene."
Terence Merston, another former Met Police investigator who has studied the photographs, backs Mr Canning. "Based on my years of experience in attending thousands of crime scenes as a forensic scene examiner, it is my opinion that the evidence at the scene points towards Jeremiah's death being extremely suspicious and not a road traffic accident," he said. "It is also my view that the damage to the Peugeot car has been deliberately caused."
But how did Jerry sustain the head injuries that killed him? A post-mortem by a British pathologist, Dr David Shove, discovered defence wounds on Jerry's arms as well as blood in his lungs and stomach. At the speed that witnesses say he was struck, he would have been killed instantly, but the blood in his lungs and stomach (caused by breathing in and swallowing after a major haemorrhage) suggest he was alive for some time, after intense trauma.
Mrs Duggan said: "What we really need is for Germany to look again at my son's death." But the German authorities are reluctant to act. A bid by German lawyers claiming police breached human rights laws by failing to investigate properly has floundered for four years in the country's highest court, the Federal Constitutional Court. Police in Wiesbaden have refused to reinvestigate, or reopen their files.
Now, a British inquest is the best opportunity the Duggan family has for finding out what really happened to Jerry. "It's been a long and difficult journey but I'm beginning to think we may be nearing the end," a visibly exhausted Mrs Duggan added. "From the moment I got that call it's been a seven-year fight for justice. I can't stop now."

The LaRouche Movement: A 'sinister' cult

*Described in an internal Scotland Yard memo as a "political cult with sinister and dangerous connections", the LaRouche Movement is an international party of activists who follow the writings of its American founder, Lyndon LaRouche, above.

*Now 87 years old, LaRouche began his career in politics as a fervent Marxist living in New York in the 1970s. He then performed a political U-turn to become one of America's most unconventional and populist far-right conspiracy theorists.

*In his writings, a mass conspiracy led by Britain, Russia, the US government and the world's Jews is described as the major cause of global problems.

*He has run as an independent candidate in every US presidential election since 1976 – apart from in the early 1990s when he was convicted for fraud conspiracy and tax evasion.

*Because Britain, and in particular the monarchy, is regarded as the arch-imperialist enemy, the movement has made little headway in the UK.

*LaRouche activists have, however, made inroads at European universities through the Schiller Institute, a Wiesbaden-based think-tank which was founded by LaRouche's German-born wife and regularly features his writings and speeches.

*Former members have accused it of brainwashing members, as well as promoting anti-Semitic, homophobic and misogynistic conspiracy theories.

Czech Prime Ministers Wife Hire’s Bodyguards over Neo-Nazi threat

Security guards have been protecting Dana Fischerova, Czech prime minister's wife, since early January, she says in the issue of the weekly Tyden to be out of Monday, adding that the measure was a reaction to the threats she faced over her helping an attacked Romany family.
Apart from Prime Minister Jan Fischer and his wife, the police also protect their son Jan, 22.
Fischerova, 61, says she has been protected over the threats an unknown man addressed to Anna Sivakova, a Romany whose family house in Vitkov, north Moravia, was burnt down in an arson attack last April.
Sivakova's daughter Natalka, then aged 2, suffered serious burns in the attack. Doctors have described her survival, after many months in hospital and numerous transplant operations, as a miracle.
"The threats were also targeted at me and our Jan," Fischerova told Tyden.
She said she believes that the potential risk will fade away after some time.
Four supporters of the ultra-right wing have been charged with attempted racially-motivated murder in connection with the arson attack in Vitkov. They are to stand a trial in May and June.
Fischer's family also faced right-wing extremists' threats last year. They targeted Jan Fischer jr.
The daily Pravo then wrote that the police guarded Jan over the threats he received from the extremist group White Justice.
Prime Minister Fischer, 59, and his son Jan adhere to the Jewish faith.

Dominic Carman to fight Nick Griffin in Barking, East London, at election

Editorial : it looks like we are not the only ones who want to give Nick Griffin a birthday present. It appears the  Liberal Democrats had the same idea today.  
The son of George Carman, QC, one of the Britain’s most notable barristers, is to take on Nick Griffin in the fight for Barking at the general election.
The Times has learnt that Dominic Carman, the unauthorised biographer of the British National Party leader, is to stand as a candidate for the Liberal Democrats in the East London constituency. The BNP hopes to topple Margaret Hodge, the Labour incumbent, to claim its first parliamentary seat.
Mr Carman said that his father, a leading barrister of the 1980s and 1990s who died in 2001, would have approved of his decision to run. He told The Times: “I would love to have seen my father have Nick Griffin in the witness box for two or three days and really take him apart: piece by piece, line by line, speech by speech.
“It would have a been a great pleasure and he would have done an excellent job. I just hope I can do a decent job exposing Nick Griffin to a wider audience than would be the case.”
Mr Carman said that his only motivation for running was to try to stop Mr Griffin from taking the seat. He intends to use information from his research into the biography to attack his opponent. It was never released because publishers were unwilling to associate their brand with the BNP leader.
“I will put it to good use in exposing Griffin beyond what’s already been in the public domain,” he said. “It’s very important to fight a strong campaign and it will be critical to challenge Nick Griffin every step of the way. I want to make people think long and hard about voting for him in Barking. It’s very, very important.”
Mr Carman has more than 20 hours of videotaped interviews with Mr Griffin over two years from 2003. He has interviewed Mr Griffin’s family and associates, including the National Front leaders who shaped his views, on numerous occasions. “I do not claim to have a silver bullet — one specific piece of info so damaging that Nick Griffin would lose all credibility. But the cumulative information I have can be presented in such a way . . . it will make him uncomfortable.”
Mr Carman hit the headlines in 2002 when he wrote a biography of his father, who was regarded as one of the country’s best libel barristers. George Carman, QC, was famed for his presence in the courtroom and his ability to captivate a jury. However, his public image changed after his death with the publication of the “warts and all” biography by his son. It detailed the destructive personal side of his father’s life with accounts of a chain-smoking alcoholic who beat his wives.
Mr Carman, who joined the Lib Dems last year, said that he would fight the campaign on local issues such as jobs and housing. “I’m not going to stand and say nothing against the Labour Government, I will argue Liberal Democrat policies in a normal way. But I’m not going to select Margaret Hodge for special criticism. I am going to select Nick Griffin for that.”
He said that his chances of winning the seat were slim. The BNP took almost 17 per cent of the vote in the 2005 general election, just behind the Conservatives, while the Lib Dems achieved 11 per cent. “I have to do what I can,” he said. “This is very important.”
His campaign will start tomorrow morning in Barking.

Big rise in Afghan child migrants

United Nations aid agencies are warning of a sharp increase in unaccompanied Afghan children applying for asylum across Europe.
The latest figures from the UN refugee agency show an increase of 60% last year, with more than 6,000 under-18s seeking asylum.
Unicef says there is an urgent need to protect children migrating alone.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child obliges countries to protect children of all nationalities.
In 2008, UN refugee agency figures show, 3,800 Afghans under 18 applied for asylum in Europe.
The UN believes the latest figures are the tip of the iceberg; many unaccompanied minors do not apply for asylum because they fear detention and deportation.
A new study from Unicef, the UN children's agency, reveals a lack of coherent policy within Europe towards child migrants and often a failure to protect them.
Aid workers point to a recent case in which two Afghan boys, one only 13, died trying to hide in lorries travelling from Greece to Italy.
A study of care offered by UK local authorities shows, Unicef says, that unaccompanied children often experience racism, are not believed when they try to tell adults their stories, and struggle with the mental trauma experienced on their journey to the UK.
The UN says much more research into the growing phenomenon of child migrants is needed, but that these initial findings show the need to offer better protection is urgent.

Netherlands gay protest over Catholic communion snub

Hundreds of Dutch activists have walked out of a Mass in protest at a Roman Catholic policy of denying communion to practising homosexuals.
On this occasion, the church, in 's-Hertogenbosch, had already decided not to serve communion, so the protesters left, shouting and singing.
The dispute began earlier this month when a priest in a nearby town refused communion to an openly gay man.
The Netherlands was the first country to introduce gay marriage in 2001.
Most Dutch people support gay rights, but the Roman Catholic Church teaches that homosexual activity is sinful.
This dispute began during Dutch carnival celebrations earlier in February, when the man chosen to be carnival prince in nearby Reusel was refused communion because of his open homosexuality.
The refusal offended many in the local community.
The Sint-Jan church in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch, also known as Den Bosch, was prepared for the protest and so decided not to give out Holy Communion during Sunday Mass.
Several hundred demonstrators, dressed in pink wigs and clothes, left the church in protest.
The man at the centre of the row has said he just wants equal treatment - if he is regarded as a sinner, he wants the priest to refuse communion to all other sinners too.

Anger as National Front is consulted on race policy in schools

White extremists have been consulted over government policy on tackling racism in schools.

A team reviewing race relations policy for Children's Secretary Ed Balls held a meeting in a hotel with a member of the National Front.
It is understood an approach was also made to the British National Party, although the BNP denied it had been approached by the review team
The review was set up by Mr Balls to consider whether members of the National Front (NF) and BNP should be banned from becoming teachers to prevent the promotion of racism in schools.

The revelation that these groups were invited to take part in the inquiry is certain to spark outrage.
The NF disclosed on its website it held a meeting with Maurice Smith, the former chief inspector of schools who is leading the inquiry, and an official from the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
NF press officer Tom Linden said the meeting had taken place in a hotel at 8.30am.

'Before the interview started I thanked Mr Smith for the giving the National Front the opportunity to promote its policies and for including the NF in his review,' he said.

'The interview was mainly about the National Front and its policies towards the education of our children.
'I pointed out that the National Front was not a racist party and that to want to promote and safeguard our own people and their culture and heritage was not racist.
'I felt it was also important to point out that a teacher who was a member of the National Front would be as "professional" as any other.
'I gave a comparison of the amount of Muslims working in the NHS and that there was never any suggestion from the government that Muslim doctors and nurses would treat sheiks and Christians any differently so why would NF members.'

Describing the meeting, he added: 'The interview lasted some 50 minutes and was very relaxed it was almost like having a conversation; it was certainly not intimidating in the slightest.'
But his remarks will infuriate campaigners for groups such as the NF and BNP to be barred from teaching.
Chris Keates, general secretary of the NASUWT, has said that wherever they have a presence, they breed and promote 'intolerance, violence and community fragmentation'.

'No right-minded person wants children, young people and staff in schools exposed to their pernicious agenda of hatred and discrimination' she said.

The BNP denied it had been approached by Mr Smith's review team.
A DCSF spokesman said: 'We are crystal clear that any form of hate-based prejudice or extremism being promoted to young people in schools is absolutely unacceptable.

'The far-right is not, and cannot be part of any solution to community problems – that’s what the vast majority of the British people believe.
'Maurice Smith is independent of Government and how he collects evidence for his review is totally up to him.
'But he understandably wants to talk to a wide range of organisations and individuals that have opinions on the issue.
'One of the areas he is looking at is whether teachers should be allowed to be members of nationalist organisations.
'Whatever people’s opinions on these organisations are, it would be impossible for him to produce a comprehensive report on the issue taking into account all the arguments and information available without talking to all parties concerned.

'Any report that ignored certain views could be seen as unfair and biased. We look forward to receiving his recommendations shortly.'
