JERUSALEM - The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens. The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

In 2001, the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president. The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2000.

Obama served on the Wood's Fund board alongside William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971. Ayers, who still serves on the Woods Fund board, contributed $200 to Obama's senatorial campaign fund and has served on panels with Obama at numerous public speaking engagements. Ayers admitted to involvement in the bombings of U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s. He is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The $40,000 grant from Obama's Woods Fund to the AAAN constituted about a fifth of the Arab group's reported grants for 2001, according to tax filings obtained by WND. The $35,000 Woods Fund grant in 2002 also constituted about one-fifth of AAAN's reported grants for that year. The AAAN, headquartered in the heart of Chicago's Palestinian immigrant community, describes itself as working to "empower Chicago-area Arab immigrants and Arab Americans through the combined strategies of community organizing, advocacy, education and social services, leadership development, and forging productive relationships with other communities." It reportedly has worked on projects with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, which supports open boarders and education for illegal aliens.

The AAAN in 2005 sent a letter to New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson in which it called a billboard opposing a North Carolina-New Mexico joint initiative to deny driver's licenses to illegal aliens a "bigoted attack on Arabs and Muslims." Speakers at AAAN dinners and events routinely have taken an anti-Israel line. The group co-sponsored a Palestinian art exhibit, titled, "The Subject of Palestine," that featured works related to what some Palestinians call the "Nakba" or "catastrophe" of Israel's founding in 1948. According to the widely discredited Nakba narrative, Jews in 1948 forcibly expelled hundreds of thousands - some Palestinians claim over one million - Arabs from their homes and then took over the territory.
Historically, about 600,000 Arabs fled Israel after surrounding Arab countries warned they would destroy the Jewish state in 1948. Some Arabs also were driven out by Jewish forces while they were trying to push back invading Arab armies. At the same time, over 800,000 Jews were expelled or left Arab countries under threat after Israel was founded. The theme of AAAN's Nakba art exhibit, held at DePaul University in 2005, was "the compelling and continuing tragedy of Palestinian life under [Israeli] occupation, home demolition, statelessness, bereavement, martyrdom, and the heroic struggle for life, for safety, and for freedom." Another AAAN initiative, titled, "Al Nakba 1948 as experienced by Chicago Palestinians," seeks documents related to the "catastrophe" of Israel's founding. A post on the AAAN site asked users: "Do you have photos, letters or other memories you could share about Al-Nakba-1948?"

That posting was recently removed. The AAAN website currently states the entire site is under construction. Pro-PLO advocate held Obama fundraiser, describes Obama as 'sympathetic.' AAAN co-founder Rashid Khalidi was reportedly a director of the official PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while the PLO committed scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group. Khalidi's wife, AAAN President Mona Khalidi, was reportedly WAFA's English translator during that period. Rashid Khalidi at times has denied working directly for the PLO but Palestinian diplomatic sources in Ramallah told WND he indeed directed WAFA. Khalidi also advised the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid Conference in 1991. During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state.

He has multiple times expressed support for Palestinian terror, calling suicide bombings response to "Israeli aggression." He dedicated his 1986 book, "Under Siege," to "those who gave their lives ... in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon." Critics assailed the book as excusing Palestinian terrorism. While the Woods Fund's contribution to Khalidi's AAAN might be perceived as a one-time run in with Obama, the presidential hopeful and Khalidi evidence a deeper relationship. According to a professor at the University of Chicago who said he has known Obama for 12 years, the Democratic presidential hopeful first befriended Khalidi when the two worked together at the university. The professor spoke on condition of anonymity. Khalidi lectured at the University of Chicago until 2003 while Obama taught law there from 1993 until his election to the Senate in 2004.

Khalidi in 2000 held what was described as a successful fundraiser for Obama's failed bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, a fact not denied by Khalidi. Speaking in a joint interview with WND and the John Batchelor Show of New York's WABC Radio and Los Angeles' KFI Radio, Khalidi was asked about his 2000 fundraiser for Obama. "I was just doing my duties as a Chicago resident to help my local politician," Khalidi stated. Khalidi said he supports Obama for president "because he is the only candidate who has expressed sympathy for the Palestinian cause." Khalidi also lauded Obama for "saying he supports talks with Iran. If the U.S. can talk with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, there is no reason it can't talk with the Iranians." Asked about Obama's role funding the AAAN, Khalidi claimed he had "never heard of the Woods Fund until it popped up on a bunch of blogs a few months ago."

He terminated the call when petitioned further about his links with Obama. Contacted by phone, Mona Khalidi refused to answer WND's questions about the AAAN's involvement with Obama. Obama's campaign headquarters did not reply to a list of WND questions sent by e-mail to the senator's press office. Obama, American terrorist in same circles. Obama served on the board with Ayers, who was a Weathermen leader and has written about his involvement with the group's bombings of the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972. "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough," Ayers told the New York Times in an interview released on Sept. 11, 2001. "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon," Ayers wrote in his memoirs, titled "Fugitive Days." He continued with a disclaimer that he didn't personally set the bombs, but his group set the explosives and planned the attack.

A $200 campaign contribution is listed on April 2, 2001 by the "Friends of Barack Obama" campaign fund. The two taught appeared speaking together at several public events, including a 1997 University of Chicago panel entitled, "Should a child ever be called a 'super predator?'" and another panel for the University of Illinois in April 2002, entitled, "Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?" The charges against Ayers were dropped in 1974 because of prosecutorial misconduct, including illegal surveillance. Ayers is married to another notorious Weathermen terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn, who has also served on panels with Obama. Dohrn was once on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List and was described by J. Edgar Hoover as the "most dangerous woman in America." Ayers and Dohrn raised the son of Weathermen terrorist Kathy Boudin, who was serving a sentence for participating in a 1981 murder and robbery that left 4 people dead. Obama advisor wants talks with terrorists. The revelations about Obama's relationship with Khalidi follows a recent WND article quoting Israeli security officials who expressed "concern" about Robert Malley, an adviser to Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous policies he says harm the Palestinian cause. Malley also previously penned a well-circulated New York Review of Books piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000 when Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern sections of Jerusalem and instead returned to the Middle East to launch an intifada, or terrorist campaign, against the Jewish state. Malley's contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross, all of whom squarely blamed Arafat's refusal to make peace for the talks' failure.

Proc Cesi nenavidi emigranty?

25. února 2008 v 20:00 | Ross Hedvíček
Byt nejctenejsi cesky pisici bloger ma nejen negativni stranky (jako ta komunisticka luza na diskusich dole), ale ma to i pozitivni stranky. Dostavam darky postou (oficialne dekuji Zarnovi za knizku a Petrovi za CDcka) a hafol emailu, kde mi lide tak "opatrne cesky" ("ne vzdy s tebou souhlasim, ale tohle se ti povedlo") vyjadruji podporu (s podminkou, ze utajim jejich jmena, coz delam). Chapu je, je tam strach, aby si nezadali s emigrantem. Cesi te kyzene svetovosti dosahnou nejspis v kategorii SOVINISMU. Ta zla, zavistiva zeme prosakla komunismem a fasistickym nacionalismem - narodovectvim nenavidi sve vlastni emigranty rozhodne vic nez ty teoreticke historicke nepratele. Vzdyt dnesni Cesko je ve sve sovinisticke nenavisti ke svemu okoli, sousedum a jinym narodum na urovni arabskych zemi s jejich svijejicimi se dervisi a polosilenymi mullahy! Pravda a laska se sla hanbou schovat do krovi. Oh, vy chcete dukazy? Jestli jako nekecam? Tady jsou, vy naivni telatka:
Udajne popularni ceska skupina Pilsner Oiquell vyplodila tuto pisen o emigrantech. Slova si prectete zde a cele umelecke dilo si muzete poslechnou kliknutim zde. Pro ty, co budou zoufale lomit rucickama podotykam, ze takovych vrcholnych ceskych umeleckych del jsou stovky - od znameho dila skupiny Divokej Bill "americti blbecci hazej bomby na Bagdad" az po hlubokomyslnou dumku (to je prosim nazev, neurazejte se!) "Hej ty kundo v Bilim dome!" (vcetne te pravopisne chyby). Pisen si poslechnete zde. JAK SVETOVE! JAK CESKE!!!
A zde je text pisne od ceske skupiny Pilsner Oiquell (ja jsem vam rikal, ze z ceskeho piva se blbne a degeneruje a neverili jste mi! Tady mate dukaz!) s nazvem Emigranti.
Emigranti
Pořád ti něco vadí pořád tě něco sere
Nikdo je nepohladí každej jim práci bere
Nikdo jim tady nechce pomocnou ruku dát
Tak proto nedivte se že se daj na západ
Ref.:
Táhnou-ať táhnou to se ví
Táhnou- ať všem se uleví
Táhnou- ať zkusej jinde žít
Táhnou- a v čechách bude klid
Táhnou-ať táhnou to se ví
Táhnou- ať všem se uleví
Táhnou- ať zkusej jinde žít
Táhnou- a v čechách bude klid

Pořád jim něco vadí furt se jim špatně žije
Někteří chcípaj hlady jiný furt někdo bije
Ať si dou kam si chtěji hlavně dost daleko
Nemějte žádný strachy nebudem na měkko

Vsiml jsem si, ze kdyz jsem pred chvili dal na lidovkovy blog dve basnicky, tak tam bylo v diskusich uplne ticho. Asi to diskutujicim sulinkum vyrazilo dech. A jako treti jsem tam dal normalni clanek a hned tam "diskutovalo" tricet idiotu.
Asi budu pokracovat s poezii - je to viditelne nad urovni chapani prumerneho ceskeho hlupaka.

Vlastenectvi a patriotismus...

22. února 2008 v 18:38 | Ross Hedvíček

Je znamo, ze pan Jungmann neumel dobre cesky a tak v dobe, kdy vytvarel ten umely cesky jazyk pitvorenim jinych slovanskych jazyku, tedy takove slovanske esperanto, nespravne prelozil vyznam slova "patriotismus". Tak vzniklo ceske "vlastenectvi", ktere neni synonymem patriotismu ani nahodou. Ceske "vlastenectvi" je synonymem sovinismu a xenofobie. Kdyz je nekdo v Americe "vlastenec" nebo "hrdy na svou vlast", rika se tomu patriotismus. Je to hrdost na vse americke (nema to pouze ta krava Michelle Obama), a patri k tomu i znama americka vseobjimajici laska k celemu svetu, ochota komukoliv pomoci a poradna davka americkeho "sebemrskacstvi" - tedy ochoty uznat pripadne americke nedostatky i v oblastech, kde snad ani zadne nedostatky nejsou. Kdyz je nekdo "vlastenec" v Cesku, je to neco uplne jineho. Cesky "vlastenec" je opet hrdy na vsechno ceske, ale ten zbytek uz tam neni. Je to naopak. Cesky "vlastenec" nenavidi vsechno neceske, nenavidi vetsinu jinych narodu, hlavne Nemce, Polaky, v posledni dobe Americany a par dalsich, kteri by mohli nejak usurpovat ceskou svetovost. V Cesku nenavist porazi lasku kdykoliv. Anytime and hands down! Takze cesti "vlastenci", od potroublych hospodynek, pres rozostrene duchodce az po zcela zdegenerovanou mladez nenavidi i cigany, jakekoliv bezence v soucasne dobe pobyvajici na uzemi Ceska, v Cesku domestikovane Vietnamce, pres sve vlastni emigranty a krajany ze zahranici az po homosexualy a kohokoliv kdo je trochu jiny. Jedinou vyjimkou jsou komunisti - ti jsou ceskymi "vlastenci" chraneni, jsou vseobecne milovani a jsou pro ne i jinak intelektualne poslabsimi vlastenci hledany vymluvy.
Nejvice nenavideni jsou ovsem lide, kteri na tyto sebe-destruktivni narodni tendence upozornuji (priklady prijdou pozdeji). K narodni identite se nejde prolhat, i kdyby jste se jakkoliv vztekali, nozickou dupali a na Narodni vybor levou rukou udani psali! Skryvani se za velmi falesne vlastenectvi se stalo modou sezony i veci fazony i ve zhave soucasnosti. A pritom je vice nez zrejme, ze vlastenectvi tohoto typu je jen berlickou narodu se spatnym svedomim. Ceske vlastenectvi je ve svych symptomech identicke islamskemu fanatismu. Navic se jedna o Cesko - zemi, ktera ma ve svem statnim hesle nepravdepodobny blabol o tom, ze Pravda vitezi a pritom jedine, o co maji zajem, je zcenzurovat nekoho, kdo tu pravdu rika. A kdyby to nahodou nebyla uplna pravda, pak je to porad jeste nazor, ktery ma v civilizovanych zemich zarucenu svobodu.
A pokud je neco pravda - pak to neni a nemuze byt urazka. Tedy pokud nezijete ve vylozene fasistickem nebo komunistickem state - coz doufam neni vas pripad. Moc, moc doufam.
No a k tem prikladum: Naprosto nehorazne muzete ceskeho vlastence rozcilit, kdyz poukazete na ceskou historii. Cesky "vlastenec" nechape, ze jedinym meritkem soucasnosti muze byt znalost a pochopeni minulosti. Cesky "vlastenec" neochvejne veri, ze ke spravedlnosti, demokracii a prosperite se jde PROLHAT.
Jednim z nadhernych prikladu jsou cesko-nemecke vztahy. Tam jsou takove odmlky, ze by z toho jeden dostal skytavku. Treba skutecnost, kterou zadny cesky "vlastenec" nikdy neprizna, ze hrdinni a statecni cesti vojaci a letci se v dobe nemecke okupace dobrovolne prihlasili do sluzby v Hitlerove armade - a to v poctu temer padesat tisic muzu a zen. Uz jste o tom nekdy cetli v Mlade fronte nebo v Pravu? Dejme slovo nejlepsimu historiku ceske soucasnosti Tomasi Krystlikovi:
Zacatek citatu: Napsal jsem: "...slouzilo vice Cechu (ceske narodnosti z odstoupenych uzemi) nez..." Z toho dostatecne jasne plyne, ze v nich neslouzili obcane protektoratu, presneji receno: Cesi z protektoratu, kteri konvertovali k nemecke narodnosti, smeli do nemeckych brannych sil jen zcela vyjimecne a to na zvlastni zadost, ktere rissky protektor vestinou nevyhovel. Ti z protektoratu, kteri se hlasili pri scitani lidu v roce 1930 k nemecke narodnosti meli plne risske obcanstvi (tedy ne pouze protektoratni, byt tez risske) a na vojnu museli, i kdyby nechteli.
Cech (Ceska) v odstoupenych uzemi, jeho (jeji) deti a vnuci a vsech manzele, pokud se narodil(a) v odstoupenych uzemich pred rokem 1910 a k 10. 10. 1938 tam mel(a) bydliste (domovske pravo) dostal(a) bez ptani automaticky prideleno risske obcanstvi bez ohledu na narodnost! Vyjimka: pokud osoba, od ktere se nemecke obcanstvi odvijelo (data narozeni a pobytu) byla vdana, pak se jeji statni prislusnost odvozovala od jejiho manzela. Tedy Cesi tam zijici ziskali (plnou) nemeckou statni prislusnost pri zachovani si ceske narodnosti. Ti z nich, kteri se pri scitani lidu v roce 1930 hlásili k nenemecke narodnosti, mohli do 29.3.1939 optovat pro cs. (protektoratni) statni prislusnost. Slezska narodnost se v principu povazovala za volksdeutsch, tedy nemeckou, Slezane optovat pro CSR nemohli (hlavne po zari 1939 v Tesinsku). Dalsi vyjimka: Hlucinane pro nasilne pripojeni Hlucinska k CSR (1920), splnujici shora uvedena kriteria, nikdy neztratili nemeckou statni prislusnost - ti take optovat nemohli, u nich bez ohledu na narodnost, ke ktere se hlasili.
Na odstoupenych uzemich v roce 1938 Nemecku neoptovalo pro CSR pres 197 tisic Cechu. Tedy odvodu schopni muzi z nich museli na vojnu, byt ceske narodnosti. Tedy jich tam bylo odhadem kolem 48 tisic. V Cesku se o tom hluboce mlci. Pochopeno konecne? Napis zda ano nebo ne.
Horsi cz-ostudy. Jeste v rijnu 1938 zacaly chodit nemeckemu vojenskemu atase v Praze zadosti dustojniku cs. armady chtejicich slouzit v nemeckych brannych silach. Po 15. breznu 1939 stali o totez najednou vojensti letci - v prumeru 75% z nich se hlasilo k preletum koristnich letadel z protektoratu do Nemecka a o sluzbu v Luftwaffe. No proste, hrdinni a zasadovi Cesi!
Konec citatu.

Srdce blaznu a usta moudrych muzu...

Srdce blaznu a usta moudrych muzu...

To byste chteli, vlastenci?
Vzpomnel jsem si na nasledujici citat Benjamina Franklina z jeho spisku z roku 1733 Poor Richard's Almanack: The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart. (Srdce blazna/idiota je v jeho ustech, ale usta moudreho muze jsou v jeho srdci). Vaclav Kral se zda byt rozumny mlady muz, navic jeste zije v USA a nepochybne umi slusne anglicky, presto napsal nasledujici pitomost, coz je jen neskryvany a dosti slabomyslny utok na mou osobu, snazici se mne pospinit a obvinit mne z veci, kterych jsem se nikdy nedopustil. Skryvani se za velmi falesne vlastenectvi se stalo veci fazony na tomto i dalsich ceskych blog-serverech. A pritom je vice nez zrejme, ze vlastenectvi tohoto typu je jen berlickou narodu se spatnym svedomim. Ceske vlastenectvi je ve svych symptomech identicke islamskemu fanatismu.
Navic se jedna o Cesko - zemi, ktera ma ve svem statnim hesle nepravdepodobny blabol o tom, ze Pravda vitezi a pritom jedine, o co maji zajem, je zcenzurovat nekoho, kdo tu pravdu rika.

Dobrá zpráva - několik rozumných lidí v Čechách zůstalo!

21. února 2008 v 14:52 | Ross Hedvíček
Nejčastější výtkou, které se mi dostává, je že prý vidím na Česku jen to negativní a že nevidím ty úžasné úspěchy. Řekl bych, že je to relativní - připomíná mi to scénu z mého oblíbeného westernu My Name is Nobody (Henry Fonda, Terence Hill): Malý ptáček vypadl za mrazu z hnízda a byla mu veliká zima. A tak mrznul a zoufale pípal o pomoc, až šla okolo dobračka kráva a bylo ji ptáčka líto. Zdvihla tedy ocas a na ptáčka se vykálela - ptáčka zavalil obrovský kravinec. Sice smrděl, ale byl to velmi teplý kravinec. Ptáček byl zachráněn, byl teď v teple, z kravince se kouřilo a ptáčkovi vykukovala jen hlava a znova pípal. Šel okolo kojot, uslyšel pípání a uviděl, že ptáčkovi kouká z kravince jen hlava. Takže nabídl svou pomoc, ptáčka z kravince opatrně vytáhl, očistil - a sežral. Z toho prý plyne poučení, že ne každý, kdo na tebe sere, je tvůj nepřítel a ne každý, kdo tě z hovna vytahuje, je tvůj přítel.

Michal Plavec z nakladatelství Nanebemletí mi poslal následující email:
Vážený pane Hedvíčku,
sledují Váš blog se zájmem již delší dobu. Nesouhlasím úplně se vším, co píšete, ale máte mou plnou podporu. Český človíček se nedokáže a až na výjimky nikdy nedokázal podívat pravdě do oči.
Uvědomil jsem si to po přečtení Vašeho článku o Plzni v květnu 1945. Shodou okolností je toto období úsekem české historie, kterým se zabývám. Máme šedesát let po válce a stále jsme krmeni lžemi o tom, co se v květnu 1945 odehrávalo.
Vzpomínám si na jeden večer v Kosovu, válka skončila sotva před pár hodinami a my seděli nad jedinou zbylou svíčkou, zahřívali se panáky Raki rrushi a debatovali o světě, který začínal již za zdí vypáleného domu, jež byl naším útočištěm. Snažili jsme se pochopit, co se děje kolem, ale to se nám pochopitelně nepodařilo. Nemohli jsme spát, venku byl výjimečný stav a dávky ze samopalů se ozývaly častěji než v jiných dnech. Honza Urban začal vyprávět, jak na univerzitě dává studentům následující otázku. Příběh je o bandě ozbrojenců, kteří zastaví vlak, vyženou z něj lidi, oddělí muže, chlapce, starce a zastřelí je, ženy znásilní a v klidu odjedou. Jeho otázka zněla, kde se tento příběh stal. Všichni hádali Balkán, Bosnu nebo Čečnu, ale nikdo neodpověděl Čechy, květen nebo červen 1945.
Shodou okolností nyní pracujeme s estonským kolegou Reigo Rosenthalem na knížce o ústupu estonských příslušníků SS Čechami v květnu 1945. Není to žádná obhajoba SS, snažíme se pouze poukázat na skutečnost, že Estonci zažili před příchodem Němců rok okupace od Stalina a nakonec svůj osud spojili s hitlerovským Německem. Neodpovídáme na otázku, zda měli jinou volbu, nebo ne. Vzpomínky estonských vojáků na květen 1945 ukazují Čechy (jak lid, tak zemi) v úplně v jiných barvách, než v jakých jsme zvyklí. Toto období svého života označují jako české peklo.
Když jsme v Čechách publikovali první výstupy, stali jsme se terčem kritiky i že strany, z níž jsme to vůbec neočekávali, od lidí, jejichž úsudku jsem si vážil a jejichž odborné kvality jsem uznával. Obvinili nás z dekonstrukce českých dějin. Zjednodušeně řečeno jim historie národa postavená na lži nevadí. Nikdo, kdo prošel životními útrapami, takový není. Znám několik lidí, kteří prošli peklo koncentračních a vyhlazovacích táborů. Ti by mohli odsuzovat, ale nikdy to neudělají. Sami toho prožili tolik, že jen vzpomínka bolí. Kritizují lidé, kteří za svého života nevytáhli paty od pece, kteří nikdy nemuseli řešit dilema mezi životem, smrtí a ctí. Sytý hladovému nevěří.
Nedělejte si nic z toho, že Vás napadají. Pokud budete na jejich hysterické výlevy podrážděně reagovat, jenom zlegitimizujete jejich postavení. Přestože nesouhlasím se vším, co píšete, držím Vám palce a přejí dostatek energie do budoucna.
Vězte, že alespoň několik rozumných lidí v Čechách zůstalo.

Two World Premieres

19. února 2008 v 14:33 | Ross Hedvíček
Peter Breiner 3 in 1 - Conducts, Plays and Composes:

World premiere with special guest Giora Feidman


Two of Breiner's major compositions, Slovakian Dances. Some Crazy. Some Sad. and Concerto for Giora and Orchestra will have their premiere on March 6th, 2008 at the Kosice Spring Music Festival in Slovakia.

The Slovak State Philharmonic conducted by Peter Breiner, will present four out of sixteen Slovakian Dances. These represent a colourful addition to the long-lasting tradition of writing symphonic versions of folk songs and dances, akin to Brahms' Hungarian Dances and Dvorak's Slavonic Dances. "The inspiration for Slovakian Dances came through Klaus Heymann, the manager of Naxos, at the moment when he commissioned me to write the new instrumentation of Brahms' Hungarian Dances," says Breiner about the origin of his idea.

Concerto for Giora and Orchestra was inspired by no one less known than Giora Feidman, who is, fittingly so, playing the clarinet solo in this world premiere. Leonard Bernstein saluted: "Long live Giora, his clarinet and his music! He builds bridges between generations, cultures and classes, and he does it with perfect artistry!" Similarly, Giora enchanted Breiner to the extent of the Concerto creation. "This concerto is, in fact, a sinfonia concertante with an homage to formal plan of Mahler's 1st Symphony, but built on music blocks that both Giora and myself grew up with. That would be classical music, tango, klezmer, jazz …" declares Breiner. "I pick up the clarinet to share a message with mankind … and it is, of course, a spiritual message …" admits Feidman.
"There has not been anything for a long time I would look forward to as much as to this concert." confesses Breiner.

New York based Peter Breiner is a Canadian-Slovak composer, conductor, pianist and arranger. He is known internationally for a multiplicity of recordings, broadcasts, telecasts and concert appearances. He began to play the piano at the age of four.

Peter Breiner's original compositions include two symphonies, as well as orchestral, chamber and choral music. He is one of the most recorded classical musicians in the world. The upcoming release of three CDs - Janacek's Operatic Suites on Naxos that he arranged and conducted will increase Breiner's account of his recordings over 150.

Breiner's clever arrangements are perhaps the best known. They include music of Bach, Tchaikovski, Gershwin, award-winning Baroque versions of the Beatles and a similar adaptation of Elvis Presley and of popular Christmas music.

Kdybych si uz zase odporoval
tak mi to promin
ale ten brajgl co mam v hlave
neuklidi ani diplomovana uklizecka
nebudu se uz opakovat
povidanim toho co uz davno vis
i kdyz je mi prijemne
nechat se o tom presvedcovat znovu a znovu
davam zelenou
a spokojim se s Tvym usmevem
z fotky Fomachrom
a hrejivym meziradkem
brecet nebudu
nejsem na E.T.
to mi jen kyslicnik siricity lepta oko
psi oci nikdy vic
mela jsi moc dlouhej handicap
pujdes do rady, co bude
dobyta nebo smetena
uz tri dny jdu lesem
a hraju na foukaci harmoniku
abych plasil medvedy
uz nechci jezdit po dalnici
tam zivot prefici jako nic
a jak je pryc, tak slus a nic vic
rezervni nemame
Vim, ze vis
ze kvuli Tobe rozbiju jeste
tisice mlhovek
jedovatych jodovek
protoze jsem nikdy nebyl tam
kde jsem mel byt
coz zrovna cinim
takze ja se tise odpotacim
a preji Ti
jeste moc krasnych dni
a aby Te v kazdem z nich
nekdo mel rad
jako dnes ja

Ale kdyz uz jsem tu, tak to bych rad

The Czech Republic – Fifth Column

12. února 2008 v 14:55 | James Jakoubek
Communist Party of Czechoslovakia was a criminal organization that deserves full repudiation just like any other organization based on similar ideology that aim to violate human right of any democratic state.
(Excerpt from the Law 198/93, the Czech Republic)
In 1993 the Parliament of the Czech Republic passed a law that proclaimed the past 40 years of the rule of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia as an Era of Totalitarianism and the ruling Communist Party to be a criminal organization. Despite this specific law, the direct descendant of this criminal organization, the Communist Party of the Czech and Moravia, CPCM, is today alive and well and on the political scene of the Czech Republic occupies the third place. In public, the leaders of this party conduct themselves as real and convincing democrats pretending to be the one and only guardians of democracy in the Czech Republic. But the reality is quite different. Just one look on some of the internal documents of the CPCM dealing with the ideology, program and plans for the future if Communists ever again gain back their lost power tells us that their today's proclamations are nothing, but a thick smokescreen.
One of the leading ideologists of today's Czech Communist Party is certain Josef Heller. He is, just like many of his colleagues, hard-line Communist with roots in the totalitarian era - during those times, he was a professor of so called "scientific Communism" (whatever that means). That his totalitarian view of the world did not change from the time he "educated" new cadets for the class warfare can be seen in his writings. One such case is his essay "The Communist Manifesto and Contemporary tasks of the Communists" (in Czech - Komunistický Manifest a současné úkoly komunistů). This writing shows us the real face of today's Czech Communists - and that face has the clear traits of a like-to-be dictators.

"Even after more than 150 years, the Communist Manifesto is still very important document that testifies about the character of the Communist Parties and their view of the world" is the first sentence of the essay. After that we are enlightened that just like 150 years ago "…today, a(Communist) specter is haunting" the world. Follows an advice: "We have to be clear about this, the term class warfare doesn't mean only violent forms or physical liquidation of the members of the enemy classes … but also a philosophical category … even if methods of class warfare were on occasions harsh, we cannot discount them." As we can see, this is the kind of "democracy" Czech Communists do vision. But there are problems ahead, because today' world is a little different than was 150 years ago. One thing that really ticks Comrade Heller: "… Problem of today's class warfare is the fact that working class facing the capital is quite shattered and on top of that, also lost its class consciousness…" Not only in highly developed and civilized countries where Communism is in its mortal throes and talked about only by bunch of drugged eccentrics or worshipped by saloon intellectuals of Hollywood type but, and this is the real problem, in "…Third world, where industrialization processes led to certain betterment of workers situation" and for this reason "bourgeoisies are winning continuing fights." This is why, Comrade Heller tells us, it is very important to teach workers class "new forms of the class warfare." For someone, who all his life allegedly dreams and earns for peace, there are lots of desires to fight and conduct (class) warfare, including "physical liquidation of the members of enemy classes." But let's not be mistaken about the final tasks of the Communist movement in the eyes an minds of Czech Communists as Comrade Heller tells us: "This task is the same as always was, the abolition of private property. This final goal we, Communists, must in our strategic papers and programs always proclaim…It is also important to fulfill another conditions of our classics, the abolition of bourgeois personality, bourgeois independence, bourgeois freedom…"
At this point I can relate a personal experience with this man, Comrade Josef Heller. One day back after he published his essay, on a discussion forum of the Czech Communist daily Halo Noviny he debated some finer ideological points of his with other readers. By a chance I stumbled on this discussion. He was, as is Communist's habit, at that moment conducting sermon on what is, how it should be practiced, and how deeply Communist Party loves and believes in, a democracy. So, I quoted few above cited thesis from his essay and asked him what he thinks of them, and remarked that I am sure that he personally knows the author of those quotes. He passed on any opinion, though, but as far as the author is concerned, he said that he, of course, does not know him. In his opinion, he said, the author is most likely some extremist from the circle of Miroslav Stepan (this Stepan is another hard line Communist, so far left that even our good CPCM doesn't want anything to do with him, at least not publicly.) So I told him and his audience where I found those quotes in question. His reaction was typical. He accused me of not being honest, because I took those quotes out of context and twisted them around. "Is this what you learned in the cradle of democracy?" he cried. Those quotes, he said, were only some of his intellectual thoughts on the Communist Manifesto, what is valid for today and what needs to be modified. The question about his stated necessity to fulfill quoted conditions of his classics he ignored. But funny thing happened. Not long after this encounter Halo Noviny abolished its discussion forum, officially because there were too many nasty remarks aimed at the contents of the published articles. And, what is more significant, the archive of the CPCM where their internal documents were posted, was also discarded. And that really is a pity.
As we can see, proclamations of Comrade Heller in his essay give credence to the suspicions specified in the Law 198/93 that proclaimed that the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia was (and today in my opinion CPCM still is) not a political party, but in its core a criminal organization bent on the destruction of the democratic system. And in this immortal longing Comrade Heller is not alone.
Then the Chairman of the CPCM Miroslav Grebenicek in one of his ideological pamphlets has similar thought: "Final aim of the Communist movement is the same as always … Nothing and no one is greater enemy of the bourgeoisies than Communism is. Not only because it goes after the bourgeoisies' neck, but also gives workers an alternative, the necessity of change. And this is why the Right is so scared, this is why for example the rightist politicians in the Czech Republic passed the law that says that the Communism is allegedly a criminal enterprise…"
Another Czech Communist ideologist, certain Jiří Janeček in his propagandist jewel called "Let's Go Back to the Truth" (in Czech "Vracejme se k Pravdě") proclaims: "…Victors of Revolutions or Civil wars can hardly afford to grant the defeated enemy any freedom of speech. The democracy for the defeated classes must be limited. The logic of evolution always wins over good intentions or democratic resolves … In Socialist system, the rule of a single Party dominant over all others and everything else is an absolute necessity …Today, the global spreading of the Capitalist system reminds us of the possibilities of global revolution, just like long ago dreamed young Karl Marx and then Russian Bolsheviks. Today, capitalist globalization is a real threat to the stability and to the world peace … It is a false pretence to believe that by evolution or with the help of the reformists it is possible to reach our socialist goals. This is not true! The middle road does not exist! Reformists are enemies; they are the obstructionists on our path forward, because they are stopping the growth of the class consciousness of the working masses…"
So here is another Czech Communist "democrat" who roars that either his vision of peace and peaceful world must go by his way, or no way at all. Anyone who does not stand behind his bullying way is an enemy. It is logical - you are either with him or against him, there is no middle way!! And this kind of rhetoric is also part of the program of the Communist Party of the Czech and Moravia: Who is not with them, is against them. This philosophy goes way back before the February 1948 when Communists with the help from "our brothers", the Soviets, organized military-style Putsch. Then the Chairman of the Communist Party, also a Prime Minister, Klement Gottwald, (who shortly after that became the first "worker's man" President of the communized Czechoslovakia) during his speech on the Old Town Square warned the population: "Who is not with us, goes against us!" That speech marked the starting point of the terrorist rule of the Communist Party in Czechoslovakia. The rule marked by hundreds of executions of political opponents - in the eyes of Communists the worker's enemies. The rule of prisons and camps of forced labor where thousands prisoners found their deaths. The rule that wrapped the country's borders with the barbed wire and mine fields where thousands more lost their lives. The rule of political indoctrinations from the cradle to the grave, and all of the other markings of the dictatorial regime. The rule that was finally brought down at the end of 1989.
The Czech Republic is a tiny country, without any effective armed forces or any real global political clout. Its only positive is its strategic location in the heart of the Europe. From this point of view, those quoted excerpts from the internal documents of the Czech Communist Party could be judged as a funny or pointless megalomania by members of some "Senile Mickey Mouse Club" who dream about world-wide domination. But we have to keep in mind that today the Czech Republic is an upright, full pledged member of the NATO and that this subversive organization pretending to be a political party has quite substantial backing of the Czech population. Czech Communists are self-proclaimed enemies of the United States of America and with their every day actions are proving this proclamation to be true. Their contacts and cooperation with world enemies of the USA, be it North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam or lately Venezuela, their hard stance against US war on terrorism, their support of any petty dictator anywhere on the globe, just to make a point against the "American dictatorship", speak for itself. The undisputed fact is that today's Communist Party of the Czech and Moravia, CPCM, thanks to its political position on the Czech political scene, constitutes a classical position of a Fifth Column, a thorn in the back of NATO, free world and the democratic state.
It is without any doubt that Czech Communists are ready and willing to betray the Czech Republic and its allies to any enemy that comes along, as long as this treason shall serve the Communist's aim - the defeat of the world's last superpower, the United States of America, and harm the free world. To prove this point to be true all we have to do it to read their daily newspaper, Halo Noviny. On those pages we can find the proof to this claim on every single day.
