Donbass Claims Its Statehood

Donbass Claims Its Statehood

Donbass Claims Its Statehood

Despite huge and unprecedented international pressure and harsh demands that were heard even in the UN premises the two breakaway Ukrainian territories- Donetsk and Lughansk People’s Republics took a joint decision to hold presidential and parliamentary elections on Sunday, November 11. After recent assassination (last August) of Alexander Zakharchenko, the head of Donetsk Republic, members of the local government and parliament expressed their unanimous opinion that the current vacuum of power must be resolved by free and democratic means – general election. Their colleagues in Lughansk, who also had an acting head of the Republic, fully supported that step which comes in compliance with the Minsk 2 agreements- the fact that caused outrage in Kiev supported by their patrons in the West – US and EU.

To prove democratic and transparent character of the elections both Republics invited a large group of international observers and journalists who represented more than 20 states, among them – France, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Austria, Russia and others. The group included current and former MPs, senators, former ministers, public activists and political analysts.

According to their comments to media, local and foreign, after visits to many polling station in the main cities of both Republics and in the countryside, the whole electoral campaign and the voting had all democratic features generally familiar to Western states. The most surprising fact for European representatives was the turnout of voters. All of them specially stressed that such huge crowds of people who wished to vote even in early hours, soon after all stations had been open, has nothing to do with the reality in Europe during elections there.

The Belgian MP Jan Penris told reporters that he was really shocked with such numbers of voters. “In my country voting is obligatory and person is fined if refused to vote”, he said. “But here we saw completely different picture, voters come absolutely voluntarily, with happy faces”. He also said that he talked to many people at polling stations, all of them were eager to vote to support their statehood and independence, while participation in the elections, according to Penris, “was a real festivity for them”.

Another observer, Greek former minister of defense and former MP Costas Isychos stressed that “the West has to learn much” from the electoral experience in Donetsk and Lughansk, first of all from “excellent organization” of the process which was “fully open, transparent, free and democratic”.

Italian veteran senator Antonio Razzi shared the conclusions of his colleagues adding that after holding this election “Donetsk will have all necessary features of statehood: popularly elected head of state and legislative body”.

As it was widely expected Kiev has immediately condemned the elections in Donetsk and Lughansk People’s Republics branding them as “illegitimate and unlawful”. Despite the unprecedented turnout of around 80%, and the pluralistic choice that was guaranteed to voters, the US and Great Britain once again said that “the elections violate the 2015 Minsk agreements”, calling them “fake”.

No matter what is being said these days in the West about the elections in Donetsk and Lughansk it is clear that the two Republics will continue the process of their statehood building. They also underline that both territories never sought a unification with Russia but seek to develop close integration ties.

Being totally abandoned by Kiev, with the Minsk process facing a real deadlock, the newly elected leaders Mr.Denis Pushilin in Donetsk and Leonid Pasechnik in Lughansk will face a lot of challenges very soon, first of all to guarantee peace and stability to their regions.

Israelis Barred From Saudi Chess Tournament Demand Action From World Chess Body

Israelis were denied visas for Riyadh tournament last year and are being supported by The Lawfare Project. Letter to international chess body seeks assurances against anti-Israeli discrimination in chess

Two Israeli nationals are requesting that the international chess governing body—the Fédération lnternationale des Échecs (FIDE)—guarantee non-discrimination after they were prevented from taking part in a chess tournament in Saudi Arabia last year because of their nationality. Israeli chess grandmaster Ilya Smirin and former spokesperson for the Israeli Chess Federation Lior Aizenberg have written to FIDE requesting financial compensation and seeking assurances that it will not allow host countries to perpetrate such discrimination against Israelis again. Smirin and Aizenberg are being supported in their action by The Lawfare Project, a U.S.-based think tank and litigation fund that fights anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli discrimination around the world.

Saudi Arabia denied visas to seven Israeli chess players in December 2017, preventing them from competing in the World Blitz & Rapid Championships in Riyadh. Lawyers wrote to FIDE on behalf of the Israeli players on October 1. The letter made clear that their “inability to participate in this Tournament was due to FIDE’s failure to secure entry visas to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the Israeli nationals and, correspondingly, its failure to guarantee their equal treatment and to protect them against discrimination on the basis of their nationality.”

The letter cited official FIDE policies that it “rejects discriminatory treatment for national, political, racial, social or religious reasons or on account of gender” and stipulate that FIDE-sanctioned events may, according to Article 1.2 of the FIDE Statutes, “be hosted only by Federations where free access is generally assured to representatives of all Federations.”

The letter further requested that FIDE take several concrete actions to prevent exclusion of Israelis from Saudi-hosted tournaments in 2018 and 2019, as well as from the 2019 World Schools Chess Championship in Tunisia, and pays to Mr. Aizenberg and Mr. Smirin a fair compensation for their non-participation in the December 2017 tournament.

“We will not stand idly by as Israelis are subjected to a gross double standard and are illegally discriminated against solely because of their nationality,” said Brooke Goldstein, Executive Director of The Lawfare Project. “Together with our partners in the legal community, we are making clear to international bodies such as FIDE that it is their duty to prevent such discrimination. We have every confidence that FIDE will do the right thing and ensure that chess is for all.”

Reuthers Harley-Davidson And BMW Motorcycle Rental: Motorcycle Tours And Rentals In The USA

The world’s leading Premium Motorcycle Tour operator Reuthers Motorcycle Tours are continuing their service expansion for the demanding clients and will launch their own Harley-Davidson and BMW motorcycle fleet in the USA in 2019. The next step will be motorcycles of the brands Indian and Royal Enfield and the worldwide networking with all Reuthers dream destinations.

Rental motorcycles in US metropolitan areas

“After Harley-Davidson withdrew the established Harley-Davidson Authorized Rentals program from its USA dealers and exclusively handed it over to one supplier, a dominant monopoly arose in the USA, which is causing widespread dissatisfaction. As a logical consequence we have decided to start in 2019 with our own motorcycle fleet in the USA to be able to offer our valued clients fair prices and the proven Reuthers service”, says Hermann Reuther, founder and president of REUTHER-ENTERTAINMENTS and a passionate motorcyclist himself.

The rental motorcycles will be available from 2019 on for all Reuthers Motorcycle Tours and Motorcycle Rental wishes in the metropolitans of New York, Chicago, Miami, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco and will also allow uncomplicated one-way rentals.

All inclusive prices

“We offer a transparent and fair price structure with all the necessary services already included in the rental price – all inclusive!”, Hermann Reuther states.

One of the most important components is certainly the included insurance benefits. In addition to the third-party liability and comprehensive insurance for the rental vehicle, the additionally included Reuthers POMZEC (Peace of Mind Zero Excess Coverage) program covers the reimbursement of the comprehensive insurance deductible if you have an accident while driving the rental vehicle. Zero excess also applies in the event of theft of the rented vehicle by criminal acts of third parties.

Motorcycle tours and motorcycle rentals in the USA – starting in 2019 at Reuthers all from one source.

Our Hearts Are Filled With Sadness

The Lawfare Project

We are devastated and horrified by the news of the brutal terror attack in Pittsburgh against our brothers and sisters. Innocents who were murdered for one reason only: because of their faith.

Our hearts are with the families who lost their loved ones, and we send our deepest sympathies and condolences during this difficult time. We are grateful to the first responders and members of the Pittsburgh Police Department who put their own lives on the line to protect our community.

We saw yesterday the most chilling of many recent reminders that the world has not rid itself of the oldest hatred, anti-Semitism. Instead, it is more dangerous today than it has been in decades. The civil and human rights of Jews are being attacked throughout Europe and North America. In the United States, anti-Semitic incidents increased by 60 percent from 2016 to 2017. The demonization of Israel—the Jewish state whose existence is the only assurance that a Holocaust will never happen again—is rampant in the media and on college campuses. And today, Iranian-sponsored bombs fly from Gaza, shot by the designated terrorist group Hamas and aimed at killing more innocent civilians.

We pray this brutal crime in Pittsburgh leads to a renewed global commitment to fight the scourge of anti-Semitism in all its forms.

Indeed, the entire world is mourning this tragedy. We mourn with them, with our country, and with the wonderful Jewish community of Pittsburgh, which lost eleven members yesterday:

Joyce Fienberg, 75
Richard Gottfried, 65
Rose Mallinger, 97
Jerry Rabinowitz, 66
Cecil Rosenthal, 59
David Rosenthal, 54
Bernice Simon, 84
Sylvan Simon, 86
Daniel Stein, 71
Melvin Wax, 88
Irving Younger, 69
May their memories be a blessing.
