Variousness 9

The Debate Link about  The Meaning of Haj Amin al Husseini. Extract:

Daniel Schwammenthal has an interesting column up about a German exhibition that was to note Nazi sympathy in the Arab and Palestinian community (expressed notably, but not uniquely, by Haj Amin al Husseini), as part of a broader exploration of “The Third World in the Second World War”. The exhibit was canceled, the column indicates, because the curator of the center did not like the indication of potential Arab complicity in the Holocaust. Norm Geras takes issue with the opening of the piece. [read the rest]

Next, to add to the list of Tarantino reviews: “Inglourious Basterds”: The Poetics of Unexpectedness. And, to add to previous Baader-Meinhof Complex reviews:  Terrorism as an Aesthetic Choice.

Via Slack Bastard, I came across the excellent dokumentationsarchiv : a multi-lingual blog collating articles and media reports on the antics of the far right.Actually, it’s mostly in German, and tags for non-German posts would be useful. Here are two sample snippets from there:

Manga version of Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ a hit in Japan
Czech rightist extremists stage rally, no incidents (involves “autonomous nationalists”)

Also from Slack Bastard:

AntiFa StreetArt : nice. different. unusual. street art against fascism
squattercity : Robert Neuwirth is “a writer who spent two years living in squatter communities in four continents” — this is his blog

The Slackster himself continues to follow the antics of Australia’s pathetic “national anarchists”, including at the Sydney Forum.

The Slackster, however, will not like the banner below:

    Thanks for supporting the banner – my skills with photo editing are obviously terrible and it’d be great if someone could make another one. All credit to them, of course.

    Looks good enough to me!
