Državno organizovani zaborav
“Agresija se naziva građanskim ratom, a genocid se zove masovnim zločinom. Država Srbija je, kao i veliki deo građanstva, poricala da je naša zemlja uopšte bila u ratu, zatim su rekli – da, Srbija je bila u ratu, ali su svi činili zločine. Treću fazu čini državno organizovani zaborav. Republika Srbija čini sve što je u njenoj moći, potpomognuta od strane institucija, poput Srpske akademije nauka i umetnosti i Srpske pravoslavne crkve, da se rat zaboravi da se zaborave zločini koje je organizovala država i da se krene u ono što zovu putem evropskih integracija”, rekao je Urošević za e-novine. ... “Odnos Demokratske stranke i njen odnos prema Bosni i Hercegovini jeste nastavak Miloševićeve zločinačke politike realizovanja državno organizovanog projekta etnički čiste Velike Srbije. To pokazuje odnos Republike Srbije prema genocidnoj tvorevini Republici Srpskoj. Mi živimo u kontinuitetu sa zločinima iz prošlosti. Sistem vrednosti koji je važio tokom devedesetih na snazi je i sada”, kaže Urošević.
"Protiv fašizma" je ad hoc inicijativa osnovana s namjerom sprječavanja fašističke konferencije i mimohoda koji bi se trebali održati 13. i 14. 4. 2012. u Zagrebu. ... Zagreb bi uskoro trebao postati poprište fašističkih orgija. Naime, za 13. i 14. 4. 2012. je, u organizaciji profašističke strančice HČSP, najavljeno održavanje Međunarodne nacionalističke konferencije, i mimohod po Zagrebu. Na stranu činjenica da je pomalo smiješno da nacionalisti održavaju internacionalna (!) događanja, sam naziv nacionalisti je tu preblag ‒ zapravo je riječ o prikrivenim i ne baš umivenim fašistima i to treba otvoreno reći. Da su naši današnji neonacisti, organizirani oko mladeži HČSP-a, jednako kontradiktorni i idejno nesuvisli kao i njihovi uzori iz NDH, jasno je po tome što će na konferenciji, među ostalima, sudjelovati i velikomađarske grupacije koje imaju teritorijalne pretenzije na velike dijelove Hrvatske. Neke se stvari, dakle, nikad ne mijenjaju ‒ kao što je NDH, tobože se boreći u ime Hrvatske, zapravo izvršila genocid nad Židovima, Romima, Srbima i drugim manjinama, usput prepuštajući svoj teritorij svojim "saveznicama" (Njemačkoj, Italiji i Mađarskoj) i njihovoj ekonomskoj eksploataciji, tako i naši suvremeni fašisti otvoreno surađuju i financiraju se od mađarskih fašista koji bi htjeli prisvojiti dijelove Hrvatske. Ono što je posebno skandalozno je da u svemu ovome sudjeluje i jedna institucija koja se financira iz hrvatskog proračuna, dakle sredstvima svih poreznih obveznika ‒ Matica hrvatska, koja bi u petak 13. 4. trebala u svojoj Velikoj dvorani na Strossmayerovu trgu 4 ugostiti rečene neonaciste. Pozivamo stoga cjelokupnu javnost da se pobuni protiv održavanja ovih fašističkih orgija u središtu Zagreba. Pozivamo Maticu hrvatsku da smjesta otkaže svoje gostoprimstvo za neonacističku konferenciju u petak, a policiju da zabrani fašistički mimohod kroz Zagreb u subotu.
Extrajudicial Executions, Security Council Sanctions, ICC Referral Needed
Syrian security forces summarily executed over 100 – and possibly many more – civilians and wounded or captured opposition fighters during recent attacks on cities and towns, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. ... Human Rights Watch documented the involvement of Syrian forces and pro-government shabeeha militias in summary and extrajudicial executions in the governorates of Idlib and Homs. Government and pro-government forces not only executed opposition fighters they had captured, or who had otherwise stopped fighting and posed no threat, but also civilians who likewise posed no threat to the security forces. ... In the cases documented by Human Rights Watch, at least 85 victims were Syrian residents who did not take part in the fighting, including women and children. The report describes in detail several cases of mass executions of civilians, including the killing of at least 13 men in the Bilal mosque in Idlib on March 11, the execution of at least 25 men during a search-and-arrest operation in the Sultaniya neighborhood of Homs on March 3, and the killing of at least 47 people, mainly women and children, in the 'Adwiyya, Karm al-Zaytoun, and Refa'i neighborhoods of Homs on March 11 and 12. In these cases, Syrian security forces, operating alone or together with pro-government Shabeeha militias, captured and executed people who were trying to escape as the army took over their towns, shot or stabbed people in their homes as the security forces entered the captured towns, or executed detained residents while conducting house searches. ... Louai, who asked that his real name not be used for fear of reprisals, said that the army first entered his neighbors' house, dragged the four men who were there outside, and slaughtered them with knives in front of their families. The soldiers then came into Louai's house, and, when he and his brother raised their hands, shot at them both, wounding Louai and killing his brother. Human Rights Watch also documented the executions of at least 16 opposition fighters, whom the Syrian security forces shot point blank after they had been captured or wounded and were no longer fighting. Those cases raised concerns that the army has adopted a policy, official or unofficial, of taking no prisoners. ... One of the fighters was injured in his right leg by machine gun fire. He was lying on the street and we could not rescue him as the army was firing and shooting at our position. Then a tank approached, around 15 soldiers with military uniforms surrounded our comrade and started insulting him and kicking him. They were shouting to us that we should surrender or they would kill him. Then they put a black cloth around his eyes, handcuffed him, and one of them shot him dead with an [assault rifle]. When they left, we buried him in the graveyard in the village.
HRW: IN COLD BLOOD: Summary Executions by Syrian Security Forces and Pro-Government Militias
"... One of the fighters who had not been killed or wounded, but had run out of ammunition, threw away his weapon and raised his arms. But the officer just shot him in the head. Then he walked around to all the wounded laying on the ground and shot them in the head with his Kalashnikov. ..." "... They kept 18 people, including the 13-year-old brother of a man they could not find, and three women. They brought them inside the mosque. Then they brought 13 of them back out again. They were blindfolded. They put them against the wall of the mosque. Then 13 army soldiers were placed in front of them and opened fire with their Kalashnikovs. The commander then shot them with his arm at point-blank range in the head. ..." ... Salim said that while these family members were at the mosque to identify their relatives, he saw from his hiding place that Syrian soldiers entered the mosque and then lined the local residents up outside. He estimated that about 40 people were lined up. He said: "There were 15-20 soldiers with russets that opened fire on them. There were women and children among them. They were spraying them with bullets. ..." ... According to “Fatma,” as government forces were entering the village, they detained 34 residents, including a 52-year-old woman, her nine-year-old daughter, and at least three teenagers under 18. Fatma said that when the forces arrived at the mosque in the village, they announced that four soldiers who had defected from the Arnaba base had fled to Ayn Larouz and that the army would kill the 34 detainees unless the defectors surrendered within 24 hours. The forces left the village after about four hours, taking the 34 detainees with them. The government forces came back the next day as well, placing children on their vehicles to protect them against attacks. According to the three residents, government forces opened fire on people trying to flee through the fields, killing ten, including Fatma's 27-year-old son. ... According to the three Ayn Larouz residents, the government forces released thirty of the detainees after five days; the next day, the residents discovered the remains of the other four in the mountain. “Majed,” who helped retrieve the bodies, told Human Rights Watch: "The four bodies were completely burned. When we carried them down to the village their body parts were falling off. The people who were killed were all from the Kantar family, aged 14, 15, 16, and 50. ... The dead bodies were lying in a position as if their hands had been tied behind their back." ... According to “Khaled,” a 27-year-old resident of Kherbet al-Jouz, army soldiers and pro-government shabeeha militias gathered around 400 people from the town in the central square around 6 p.m. on March 18. Khaled, who was present in the square, told Human Rights Watch that the soldiers then brought two people, who were handcuffed and blindfolded and wore only trousers, out of an army truck. He said: "Their upper bodies and faces were all bruised and swollen. The soldiers started beating them, saying that they were terrorists and that this should be a lesson to the rest of us. The detainees were lying on the ground. Then the commander – a lieutenant-colonel – gave orders to kill them. Four soldiers opened fire. They emptied their ammunition clips, put in new ones, and continued shooting. I think they must have fired 30 times each. After the soldiers left, the villagers buried the two bodies in the local cemetery. Their identities were not established." ... Human Rights Watch interviewed six witnesses who described the mass killing of civilians and opposition fighters who were fleeing the army attack on Jabal al-Zawiya. At least 74 people died when the army opened fire at residents and defected soldiers hiding in the Wadi Bedmaya valley. Some witnesses said that the opposition fighters who had weapons fired back, and that it is hard to verify how all of the victims died. However, the witnesses told Human Rights Watch that at least seven people from the group, including a local sheikh, surrendered to the army, and were later found shot execution-style, or with their throats cut and hands bound. ... ... "About six of them died instantly [in the shelling.] Two were very badly injured. The tanks and soldiers then entered the square. They dragged the bodies and the wounded to the middle of the street. The soldiers peed on them. Then they shot those who were still alive – I could see some of them moving – before they ran over the bodies with a tank." ... "... From the attic I saw a group of men dragged outside by the Syrian army soldiers. Some of them were residents of Sultaniya; others were from Baba Amr. My 70-year old father, 36-year-old brother, and brother-in-law were among them. The men were lined up into two rows, and men wearing black masks carrying weapons stood in front of them. The men in masks opened fire at the people standing in one of the rows … I don't know why they shot at one row and not the other. ..." ... "... on my way, I saw five women and around 15 children who had escaped 'Adwiyya and they were in terrible shape. I stopped to talk to them. They told me that the shabeeha got into the houses, mostly through the rooftops. Some were wearing civilian clothes, others were in military outfits. The women were very scared, saying that the shabeeha robbed everything, destroyed everything, raped women, and killed anyone who had remained in the neighborhood. ... When I got to Bab Dreib, there were 16 corpses, all women and children. Some of the children had been hit on the head with sharp objects. The brain was outside the skull. Some had traces of gun wounds to the head and sensitive areas. Some of the women were naked, almost completely. ..."
