After several smaller eruptions in the past years, there was now a larger eruption at 2700 metres of the volcanic mountain.
Currently, a column of ash of 8000 metres stands above the active volcano.
Air traffic in the neighbouring airport of Catania is not yet disturbed, but it had to be interrupted again and again. There was minor damage in surrounding villages on the western side of the volcano, as ANSA Italia reported with reference to the National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology, the Etna Observatory in Catania.

World War 3 begins in the mind of each individual!
Slowly, the situation around the Russian troops on the Ukrainian border is coming to a dramatic head. The USA has won the date for the attack through information from the CIA: next Wednesday there will be rocket fire and the armada that has been deployed there will make its way to Kiev.
One can believe it.
But the war is also being waged in the minds. This is what the seemingly impotent superpowers, which are only a shadow of what they once were, are counting on.
This makes every normal person in the possible war zone wonder, who are the nations actually being ruled by?
The Third World War is not a children's playground with the rockers in the sandbox, but probably the end of civilization.
This emotion is being played with brutally.
Any sensible person might want to scream.
In the Cold War, we had the so-called "Red Telephone". Today, people negotiate through third parties and the media.
If you take a look at the overflowing agency reports, you are glad that the old ticker is gone, otherwise many editors would be close to madness.
Too much information about a war that found its origin in political mistakes of past decades.
Some news here:
Norway is in deep concern.
The EU is evacuating its staff from Kiev.
Putin and Biden are to talk on the phone today. At the request of the United States.
Berlin advises all German citizens to leave Ukraine.
The USA evacuates its embassy. Antoli Antonov, the Russian Federation's ambassador to the US, dismisses the invasion dates that the CIA is supposed to have found out as propaganda.
The CIA had also not found out that the Taliban took Kabul in a coup d'état. That was a few months ago. One remembers. But now one can look at the clock and wait for the shelling, rather the missiles and bombers of the Russians.
It sounds like the revelations of the Langley Oracle.
Yes, then one could also prepare and give the invaders a "really hot welcome". Why this fails to happen with the massive troop deployments of the USA, e.g. to Poland, to give Putin a "bloody nose", remains an open question.
One has to ask oneself, what does Putin gain from a war?
Well, perhaps the autocrat in the Kremlin is ill. He came across as puffed up and cynical.
Probably, Russia's long-term president is even ailing.
His government business at the table of his puppet regime lately always seemed like the meeting of the mafia bosses in Chicago in the 1930s. That's right, only the tables shone more than the silly grins of his lackey-like lickspittles.
Perhaps the resistance of the Russian people has now reached a point that will only allow it to unleash another" war".
Apart from that, Germany becomes one of the main combat zones in such a scenario.
Think of Ramstein, Spangdahlem and other US supply facilities in Germany. The Russians will not be asked twice to cut off supplies to the front, if that is how it is to be. The German government seems to have gone into hiding and for some unknown reason does not know how to help itself.
If there were a politician who could bang his fist on the table for once.
Where is he?
For this threat of war, it is quiet. Too quiet.
That is why the war begins in the mind.
South African Archbishop Emeritus of the Anglican Church of Cape Town and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Desmond Mpilo Tutu has died at the age of 90, South Africa's acting President Cyril Ramaphosa announced in Cape Town this morning.
Tutu was one of the icons of the anti-apartheid movement in the 1980s, which worked to desegregate South Africa. Many South Africans of all skin colours owe their lives to him, who had an incomparable sense of humour. Together with Mandela, he achieved this goal, the abolition of apartheid.
Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his fight for human rights.
Born in 1931 in Klerksdorp, in what was then the Transvaal, Tutu initially studied to be a teacher, but turned to theology after the Bantu Education Act (Wet op Bantoe-onderwys), 1953.
In later years, at Mandela's request, he chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission from 1996, which dealt with the crimes of apartheid.
South Africa, 1984, kasaan media, 2021
This is what we wish our readers.
In difficult times, in the times of the pandemic that is now already determining the second Christmas, with all the accompanying symptoms that are taking place together with the social upheavals, a few days of reflection are important.
Celebrate as far as the regulations allow.
We are on Christmas holiday until Monday, December 27 and will report again in the usual way from Monday.
Now it's Omicron: anyone who denies the pandemic now is an ignoramus and living dangerously. Very dangerous.
First appearing in South Africa, the highly contagious variant spread rapidly around the globe.
Panic is not a good advisor in this case. Neither are conspiracy theories, as bandied about by numerous concerned citizens. It is obvious to everyone that the extreme right-wing pack smells morning air to introduce their own crude theories via Covid-19.
Every child knows that vaccination protects. But what happens with the possible "Epsilon" variant?
However, after countless failures in the pandemic that has been going on for two years, politicians have to ask themselves where they are actually heading. The situation is no longer transparent for anyone.
More and more people are rebelling against the state's measures. The demanded contact restrictions are then reduced to absurdity in authorized demonstrations. Why are then demonstrations allowed at all?
Either the virus is so brutally dangerous that there can be no discussion about a lockdown, or it is not. If the virus is so dangerous that it produced significant excess mortality, then it is not a question of a lockdown, but of explaining it. Why is the population in Germany left in the threat that there will be another lockdown over Christmas?
Why doesn't the Council of Experts explains?
Or it is the lack of planning in absolute carelessness that it will go on like this. Now the dead vaccine is to come, what is actually meant by this? mRNA seemed to have come onto the market at "monkey speed" without having tested it on numerous special cases.
Too much is discussed, but not clarified or explained.
Novavax is the dead vaccine. It is about to be approved.
What about the citizens who simply did not tolerate the vaccination? Should they get boosted with the dead vaccine? What about the patients who, in addition to constant inflammation throughout their bodies, also have to bear the consequences that render them almost incapable of acting? What about the consequential damages?
An application for recognition of the vaccination damage is hardly sufficient. There is still a telephone that is manned from time to time between 2 and 3 p.m. It is administered by the Robert Koch Institute. It is administered by the Robert Koch Institute, and no explanatory bear can help. Unfortunately, no one answers the line. Unfortunately, the package inserts with the vaccination side effects are kept very simple.
In other EU countries this chain is better regulated, e.g. in Spain you can contact the health centres of the respective junta.
Questions upon questions that no one seems to be able to answer. Or wants to.
These are images of unique beauty from a faded land. India-1964-
It had been 16 years since the colonial masters - the British - had left. India was still a young state in itself, searching for its own identity after centuries of foreign rule. The photographs are from Bombay, today's Mumbai, Calcutta and Delhi.
They show the everyday life of the generation of that time. The pictures come from the private collection of the then British Consul General at the High Commission in Bombay. The Copyright of the pictures is ours. Copying and reprinting are expressly prohibited.
Refreshment in the evening light
It was the murder of Horst Strohe, at night around 1 a.m. on 13 September 1992, that terrified an entire city then as it does now.
The brutality of the crime against the victim, who openly lived with his homosexuality, is unmatched.
Numerous witnesses saw the then 54-year-old man being literally executed with kicks to the chest and against the head in a square not far from white benches below the OVB office on the street "Am Malzbüchel", in the connection next to Heumarkt.
The investigators at the time did not rule out that possible witnesses in 1992 wanted to remain unidentified - out of concern that details of their sexual inclination might become known. Today's investigators forget that the victims were treated as badly by the police as they were by sections of society.
The brutality of the crime was unprecedented and showed how homosexuals were systematically made fair game by sections of society as late as the 1990s.
What had happened?
That was also the question asked by the investigators in Aktenzeichen( German police file XY on October,13 2021 when they presented the case of Horst Strohe, who had been kicked to death on Heumarkt, on the programme.
Until now, it is still not clear whether Strohe was the victim of a random act of violence or knew the perpetrator beforehand.
At that time, it was known in the circles around the Heumarkt and Alter Markt in Cologne that homosexuals openly moved around in pubs there. In addition, it was known, since 1991, as contemporary witnesses reported, that foreign youths gathered in the area up to the office of the OVB and the then fast food restaurant Mc Iwan at the KVB tram stop Heumarkt in the direction of Deutz to go "homosexual gossiping" in front of the said pubs. According to contemporary witnesses, this also applied to the transvestite theatre Timp, where the later victim had to walk past.
There were also the places where the homosexuals looked for their partners, met for one-night stands. The area extended towards Severinsbrücke on the Rhine. It was known that Strohe frequented homosexual circles between Heumarkt and Severinsbrücke, which was called the "leather scene" during the years.
It was already common for several youths to pounce on the victims and demand some kind of protection money or simply strike. People were cautious at that time when they came out of one of the bars at night. This is what witnesses from the time report. In 1993, for example, there was allegedly an incident in front of a former fish shop/snack bar on the previously declared Heumarkt.
Strohe went to the bus stop in the direction of Heumarkt and was attacked on the way by his later murderer and killed with numerous kicks to the head. This happened in the immediate vicinity of the brightly lit Hotel Maritim at the head of Heumarkt facing the Rhine.
The tram line also ran close to where Strohe, who worked as a computer technician and programmer for an insurance company and was known and respected by many in the "black leather scene", was murdered.
Especially in Hühnergasse, adjacent to Heumarkt, where the bar "Caroussel" was, one could hear how homosexuals were often harassed and threatened. Sometimes they were even hit. Or "Pustis" (Greek for faggot) was shouted, spat at etc..
The perpetrator is described by the Cold Case Unit under Commissioner Weber as follows: about 20 years old at the time, about 1.80 metres tall, slim and athletic. He is said to have been wearing a white shirt with a snake pattern. He might have been trained in East Asian fighting techniques. He may have been travelling with other men who are being sought as witnesses.
Police File : Crime Scene 1992, Police Cologne
Investigators are also looking for two witnesses from the deceased's personal circle who were at Heumarkt shortly after the crime, according to the police in Cologne.
A day at the end of time
The 1990s, the years of awakening and freedom, were over on September 11, 2001.
What actually happened, or happened then, is only clarified in fragments today - the involvement of Saudi Arabia and the crude regime is not obvious.
The next religious war began.
Now, one might think that a small terrorist group has won the war against almost the entire world community, if one sees the pictures from Kabul these days.
With the loss of the democratic structures of the state of Afghanistan to the terrorist force of the Taliban, much of what happened in the world after September 11, 2001 has become meaningless.
The horrific scenes left a lasting mark on the later generation.
The war that triggered a cascade of revolutions a decade later. Saddam and his absurd vision of the world. A servant of terror, Gaddafi, beaten to death by his people. Other despots from Arabia disappeared into comfortable exile.
The images of the attack on the World Trade Center in New York are unforgotten.
These snapshots of the event burned themselves into the collective memory of humanity. People still believe that it was a complete conspiracy, as the tweet below shows. However, governments did everything to keep the conspiracy going.

No government covered itself in glory afterwards - harrowing sequences live across screens
It was the declared war of a small group of utterly deluded conspirators whose sole aim was apparently to divide society.
The previous Taliban government in Kabul had given shelter to those who were dividing society worldwide, leading to the events that weeks ago caused people to fly out of planes, wanting to escape in much the same way as those trapped on the upper floors of the WTC towers. Until they jumped for fear of suffocation or burning to death. Trump's short-sightedness in political matters, the simple and stupid answer of a populist to complex questions, enabled another disaster.
The world has learned little from September 11, 2001. The victims are unforgotten. At least we can remember them
Nasty rumours and a video far from the world
Nasty rumours have gone about Dr Ruja Ignatova and her more than mysterious disappearance in Athens, in October 2017.
Behind OneCoin was a pyramid scam that left an estimated €4.5 billion worth of damage in the world. Other estimates put the figure at US$15 billion. The purely real reason for Ignatova's disappearance will have been that the go-getting Bulgarian knew that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation was after her. Accomplices of hers will also have suspected and known this fact and therefore acted. It is more likely that the wanted woman is dead, and that the perpetrator had a video produced that cannot be surpassed in ridiculousness.
But, as with Wirecard-Marsalek, dubious connections to intelligence services are now surfacing.
Not even a close resemblance to the Corpse, screenshot Facebook
Nobody knows what happened then, after the flight with Ryanair to Athens. Ignatova disappeared off the face of the earth afterwards. This gave rise to stories that are devoid of any reality, such as Ignatova having absconded to Russia. Or that Ignatova had come back to the EU as a refugee. It couldn't get any more absurd. Or that she was living in a palace in the desert. Well...! Passport copies from Dubai have even turned up, leaving doubts about their origin. Among them was an alleged document from the German embassy in Dubai.
But now a more than unbelievable video is really fuelling the rumour mill. Allegedly, as if from a cult, the alleged Ignatova is sitting and lecturing about the relaunch of the failed currency OneCoin. She talks about betrayal and is looking to the future, about OneCoin, like a fetish. Admittedly, the person Ignatova doubles bears a certain resemblance to the Bulgarian woman missed by many investors.
The garishly made-up boat lips and the black hair, as well as the nonsense the mime explains, fit in with the hopelessness of the OneCoin company. Moreover, at the end of the first edition of the video, which was created with a lot of technology, Russians are yapping. One does wonder. Marsalek is also suspected to be in Russia. It's a scoundrel who suspects connections.
A monstrous scandal is taking off
Meanwhile, there are even rumours that there was a connection between the fugitive Marsalek and the beautifully made-up Bulgarian woman. This monstrous network is said to have developed from Dubai.
Certainly, OneCoin was a maturation of the underworld, with the claim to create its currency, which would then function as money laundering. Thus, funds from sex hotlines and gambling were allegedly laundered in the currency initiative of the missing Bulgarian woman, entrusted to Marsalek by the Russian, Italian and Bulgarian Mafia.
So far, there has only been the arrest of her brother Konstantin, called "Konsti Keks" (biscuit) in the USA and the almost legendary celebrity hype surrounding the missing protagonist Ignatova. However, the de facto manager "Konsti Keks" since the disappearance of his sister became soft in the interrogations that took place in New York. The brother had arrived in reality shortly before his arrest in the US, 2019, following his Facebook account:
Konstantin Ignatov likes TIMES OF GRACE: "The Hymn Of A Broken Man" Album Teaser - Part 8 | Roadrunner Records at en.roadrunnerrecords.com.
Companies built up around the queen of blockchain currency, enabling the surrounding group to receive billions in a financial circus show from investors, to launder billions more.
As everyone now knows or suspects, Ignatova had nothing to do with the concept of OneCoin. The day also had only 24 hours for her. She may have been chubby, but she wasn't particularly smart. While warped to the point of caricature, Ignatova now proclaims in the video that she had new ideas and not everyone passed the test she took with her then faithful.
Was money laundered through Luxembourg?
This includes Frank Schneider, the former head of operations at Luxembourg's Secret Service SREL, who is in extradition custody in France to be brought to the US. He is accused by prosecutors in the US of billions in fraud involving blockchain currencies. What the former vice-president of Luxembourg's Secret Service, who was previously accused of wiretapping then Minister of State Jean-Claude Juncker in 2007, had to do with Ignatova, for whatever reason, is explained by an insider as having switched sides to the bad guys. Schneider understood it was a pyramid scheme for money laundering on a very grand scale.
The tap operation is said to be the next unsolved action, the so-called "Bommeleeër" affair. It is about an illegal eavesdropping on the electronics engineer Loris Mariotto and an allegedly encrypted CD about a conversation between the then Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker and the Grand Duke about the stay-backs, attributed to the Gladio network.
Connections of the perpetrators, who have not yet been unmasked, lead to the phantoms of the Brabant gang, a group that left more than two dozen dead in robberies in Belgium in the 1980s and financed itself from questionable sources.
The video is a joke and this joke will leave more victims out of pocket for an investment mirage.
Out of years
From many years in South Africa, these images began in the early 1980s. It is a pictorial arc of everyday South African scenes. These photos are seen from the perspective of the time. It is interesting to see how the country changed over the decades.
It was the dirtiest period of politics by a mendacious gang of supremacists in South Africa.
Mandela was in prison just for fighting for freedom and for the idea-one man-one vote.
It dawned on even the white South Africans that it had been wrong to imprison the real masters of the country.
It was the time of Desmond Tutu.
Shameful abuses escalated into unrestrained brutality were the order of the day. A brutal, despicable war was waged against anyone who rebelled and yet, the "old crocodile" Botha warned of the circumstances of today.
Unfortunately, as one realizes these days, Botha was right, the ANC cannot handle some of its power. As it did then. Just think of Stompie or the pageantry in which Winnie Mandela and her followers lived and preached water in Soweto. Zuma and his corruption warped to excess is only a logical consequence of what started back then.
South Africans, please calm down!

Many more clues to the most mysterious murder case in post-war history
There are new findings about the Isdal woman, who was found dead around Bergen / Norway in November 1970. But also only fragments in a large mosaic that the beautiful unknown woman left behind.
Already in 2019, Le Républicain Lorrain in Forbach / France wrote about the mysterious acquaintance of a man from the Grand Est in the weeks of summer 1970.
The two spoke almost exclusively about painting and art. She had a "Balkan accent" but spoke German, French and Dutch, as Le Républicain Lorrain reported. The unidentified person, who served as an informant for the regional newspaper in Lorrain, said: "She (the alleged Isdal woman) said she had several documents and passports that allowed her to cross the Berlin Wall and travel to the GDR without any problems."
Overall, the statement in the French source is astonishing. It is perfectly aligned with the events that then took place. Allegedly, she had quite a few passports and wigs in the luggage collected from friends in the Wiesberg district of Forbach, where she also spent the nights. Also, clothes, which certainly did not come from a poor woman from the Balkans.
But where were the objects, documents, when the CID in Bergen found the suitcases in a locker at the local railway station after the death of the Isdal woman in early December 1970?
Riddle after riddle.
Why should this woman, who was sitting high on a horse in a lumberjack shirt and corduroy trousers, now suddenly be lying dead in Isdal/Norway? And this after she had met two unknown men, probably Yugoslavs, two days before her demise.
Just another clue in the puzzle: Did the Isdal woman's death journey already began in Geneva?
The trail of the Isdal woman leads not only to Lorraine, not far from the German border, but also to Geneva.
To the then luxury Hotel Regina at the Quai du Mont Blanc, owned by Émile Kähr and subsequently by his sons. There, where Tito's and Ulbricht's foreign currency procurers hung out. Here, in the midst of Geneva's art scene, within a stone's throw of Geneva's galleries, the connoisseurs of old masters met, and not only them.
In the diaries of the Isdal woman, a remark was found that she stood at the Hotel Regina in Geneva. After decryption of the code she used in her papers, it was revealed she stood at the Hotel Regina on the Quai du Mont Blanc in Geneva from the March 16th to March 19th, 1970.
But the Hotel Regina in Geneva, in the years a well-known spot for East-West contacts, also had an eventful history, as one can read in the Journal de Genève. Mysterious events took place: for example, documented in the issue of September 22, 1959. The French-language article can be found here.
We have because this act is so exceptional in the borough, translated the article.
"Towards the end of last night, two unknown persons presented themselves to the porter of the Hotel Regina, 7 quai du Mont-Blanc. Mr. Alois Arnold, 78 years old, 20 avenue Jacques-Martin in Chêne-Bougenes, who was just finishing his deputy duties, the incumbent being on leave at the time. By one of the strangers, who had taken out a percussion instrument from a red leather bag, (the man) was hit on the head. Mr Arnold collapsed while the second assailant held him down and grabbed him by the throat. Meanwhile, the first robber had gone behind the counter, blown up the cash drawer (!) and taken more than nine thousand francs (worth about 4456 euros at the time).
When there was a noise, the two attackers made their way towards the salons and jumped through a ground floor window onto the Square du Mont Blanc. Mr Arnold soon regained his senses. The septuagenarian, who was very alert despite his age, managed to call the police by phone. The police rushed to the scene and began a search, which, however, proved fruitless. In fact, the clues about the unknown persons are rather vague: height 160 cm, rather thin, age between twenty and thirty, complexion and hair dark, language with a southern accent, light-coloured clothes, unkempt appearance.
Mr Arnold, who had lost a considerable amount of blood, was taken to the polyclinic and then to the Cantonal Hospital, where doctors found a deep wound on his head - but he had not suffered a fractured skull - and traces of strangulation on his neck. He will have to stay in the cantonal hospital for a week.
Only a while ago, the night porter of the Hotel de la Paix narrowly escaped some people who, after breaking open a window, tried to attack him."
It is surprising that this attack happened around eight o'clock. The perpetrators were also looking for something else. Unfortunately, the whole eventful history of the Hotel Regina cannot be told in one article, but it was wild. Another article shows the usual "business" in those days.
"Yesterday, late in the morning, the Pioneers of the Permanent Standby went to the Hotel Regina, Quai du Mont-Blanc 7, where a fire had broken out between the floor and the ceiling. The fire brigade had to carry out demolition work to reach the scene of the accident.
This was due to an accidental cause. It actually appears that a cigarette, which was undoubtedly extinguished, fell into a small hole in the toilet, releasing smoke that necessitated the fire brigade's intervention."
Just a side note in this matter is that the Bristol Hotel at Krambugata 3, in Trondheim, where the Isdal woman was staying, burned to the ground in 1976. Until now, it is not clear how the fire started.
Hotell Bristol brenner (1976)
In the 1950s and 1960s, for example, the annual writers' event was held in this fashionable setting in Geneva. The Isdal woman, obsessed with art, blended in perfectly with the surroundings. But, the star of the Hotel Regina was sinking, numerous tenants and changes of ownership led to the dissolution of the house in 1974.
What is today the Hotel de la Paix on the elegant shores of Lake Geneva, was in 1970 the Hotel Regina. No less distinguished.
The beautiful unknown must have resided there. At least she had a sewing kit from this house in the evidence of suitcases found in a locker at Bergen station days after her demise.
At the time, this sewing kit was laid out in the rooms of the posh hostel on Lake Geneva, along with a bar of soap and a Bible. Unfortunately, there are no more sign-in sheets from those days.
The question remained, why did they, who had otherwise removed everything from the suitcases that indicated the identity of the dead, leave just the sewing kit in the suitcase? It was like the Norwegian Military Intelligence Service's obfuscation against the Bergen police. Cases from the bottom drawer were dragged in.
The traces seem to have been deliberately removed to obfuscate the real reason, the art smuggling.
But what is stopping Norway's military intelligence service, 50 (!) after the woman was found, from handing over the documents that were seized in the suitcases at the time?
This secret must be far more important than obsolete AGM-119 Penguin anti-ship missiles, which were used as a grateful excuse at the time and led to strangely scattered rumours.
The Republicans and the horror of the death penalty.
In Arizona, probably out of a mixture of brutality and terrible stupidity, they do not shy away from Zyklon B to execute delinquents.
Zyklon B was used in the industrial extermination of the Jewish people in concentration camps.
By USHMM, courtesy of National Archives - <a rel="nofollow" class="external free" href="http://digitalassets.ushmm.org/photoarchives/detail.aspx?id=1069557">http://digitalassets.ushmm.org/photoarchives/detail.aspx?id=1069557</a>, Public Domain, Link
The gas chamber is to be used when the substances for lethal injection are not available.
The death penalty is dying a slow death in the U.S. after Trump's orgy of executions in the final weeks of his regime.
Arizona now feels called, as needed drugs and substances for lethal injections are running out because of the embargo of the European producers, to carry out the punishment requirement with the precursor of lethal injection, the gas chamber.
To this end, Arizona's gas chamber has been brought back into service after years and even refurbished. That is, the rubbers that had become brittle around the windows and doors over the decades were replaced and reinserted. Inside the chamber, a candle was then used to test whether it would go out when a fan was turned on. It seemed like the tests of dilettantes who order experimental series, as agencies described.
The mechanics of the gas chamber were changed to Zyklon B, which killed millions of people in WW2.
The deputies could not express their need to carry out the death penalty in a more inhumane way.
Arizona buys for a lot of money the chemicals, which are necessary for the execution with Zyklon B.
Developed by the Degesch Company in 1922, under the direction of chemist Fritz Haber, the biocide brings cellular respiration to a halt and causes slow internal asphyxiation.
One thing is clear: Arizona's executioners join the criminal machinations of the SS guards at Auschwitz-Birkenau, such as SS Obersturmbannführer Mulka, who was handed out after the war in the so-called "Auschwitz trial".
For some time now, there has been a rumour going around the Arizona Department of Corrections that they were stocking up on illegal substances for expensive money all over the world, in part to execute innocent delinquents.
It is a populist and nauseating goal to now use Zyklon B for execution!
Significantly, the inventor of the lethal injection and the lethal injection execution machine, Fred Leuchter, was convicted for denying the Holocaust and denying the mass industrial killing by Zyklon B.
His statements resulted in the so-called Leuchter Report, which provoked a storm of protest worldwide when it was published in the 1990s. In the Nuremberg Trials, Zyklon B was repeatedly referred to as the devil's weapon and has since been considered equally outlawed.
As was also the case in the "IG Farben trial". This was truth for the defendants after World War II. It should also apply to Arizona's politicians and executioners today.
The free world and Europe should consider whether those who barbarically tread on the memory of the victims of Nazi murder should not themselves be sanctioned or punished.
The Republicans in Arizona do not speak a different language, a troop of avenging angels and anti-democrats incited by Donald Trump, whose contempt for humanity cannot be surpassed by anything. Significantly, the Nazis and the Arizona Republicans share almost the same mindset, which they now want to try on people.
One can only hope that the Republicans in Arizona will also suffer significant legal damage for their contempt for humanity towards millions of victims of the Nazi murder machinery.
It is not clear who is to be the first delinquent tied to the metal chair in the centre of the gas chamber; it is likely to be Frank Atwood and Clarence Dixon.
Frank Atwood, Department of Corrections in Arizona
In a short telephone interview with the Department of Corrections in Arizona, a lot of bad music was played after the main press officer didn't feel like answering the questions, but that's how you keep the probing ethical questions at bay. Literally, this time. An e-mail came back. Even for a spokesman serving in conservative Arizona, this is an embarrassment beyond compare. In Arizona, they already have experience with gas, as they proudly point out on the page that is all about the death penalty.
Robert Dunham, director of the renowned Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, said in a short telephone statement, as he had done earlier in the Guardian: "You want to avoid believing that in 2021 people will be killed in a U.S. state with a drug that was used in our Holocaust. Have they learned nothing from the Holocaust?"
It is not about what atrocities the perpetrators committed, but about never putting oneself on the same level and cruelly torturing people to death. But apparently this is desired in Arizona. A spectacle to the liking of Donald Trump and his sleazy minions. Although Trump attacked Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich as a self-promoter on TV after losing the election, as Newsweek reported. After all, Brnovich's office is giving convicts a choice of injection or gas, the administration pointed out.
What a choice!
The international press agencies report that thousands of refugees swam into the territory of the Spanish enclave of Ceuta in North Africa during the night. They are now straying in the streets of Ceuta.
All we hear from Morocco is that the police have observed the refugees swimming, but have done nothing to stem the flow of refugees. Morocco has long tolerated the wild camping of refugees in the forests and valleys behind Ceuta.
For years, the EU's external border there has not been secured. At first, refugees coming from all over Africa tried to climb the fence that the Spanish authorities had built there. In the process, border guards were soiled with urine and faeces. Now the Africans were trying to reach the shore of the EU by swimming.
Back in 2015, we wrote that it could only be a matter of time before thousands of refugees from the back land would make their way to Europe's external border on the African continent to enter the EU. At the time, the good partnership with Morocco, a kingdom where the monarch God enjoys similar status, was invoked. There, where tourists are pushed around the markets for a few euros. There, where contempt for women is the order of the day. Not to mention the lackey-like relationship of the Moroccan people to their police, crown and the non-observance of laws.

It must come to an end!
In Europe, since the first refugee crisis, the social distortions are so high that whole grown states are struggling with this problem. On the one hand, Africans have quite understandable interests to come to Europe but on the other hand Europeans are not ready for further refugee crises.
There is no point in creating further incentives for even more protection seekers by forwarding those who have now fled. On the contrary, Europe must avert the formation of right-wing dictatorships in the states, states within states, and Africa must get a grip on its problems. To this end, a "Marshall Plan" for Africa has been discussed for years, but apart from working groups and declarations of intent, nothing has come of it so far.
