Default Knockout game in Romania too: gypsy boxer puts random people in hospital just for fun



Quote:
Potrivit evz.ro, președintele Federației Române de Box, Leonard Doroftei, a declarat că pugilistul clujean Alexandru Macingo (16 ani), care i-a făcut KO pe mai mulți trecători, distrându-se cu celebrul joc „lovește și fugi”, nu este la prima abatere de la viața sportivă. „Să îl considerați exclus din box. I-am mai dat o șansă și văd că a recidivat. În trecut s-a luat la bătaie în ring cu un alt sportiv. Ceea ce a făcut este foarte grav. El are antecedente în viața de sportiv”, a spus Doroftei.
Trei dintre victime au ajuns la spital

[He's been suspended from practicing the sport by the Boxing Federation, this being only the latest in a string of violent outbursts.]

Sâmbătă seara, micul boxer cu pumn de fier, împreună cu trei prieteni s-au distrat și au lovit mai mulți trecători după jocul „knockout game”, pe românește „lovește și fugi”. Macingo și-a lovit atât de tare victimele, încât acestea au ajuns direct la spital, unde au fost operate. Prima victimă, Adrian Botoș, a ajuns direct la Clinica de Boli Maxilo Faciale, fiind operat de urgență pentru dublă fractură de mandibulă, necesitând 45-50 de zile de îngrijiri medico-legale. A doua victimă a lui Macingo este un student, Cătălin Cioban.

După lovitura de KO, acesta a ajuns direct la Clinica de Ortopedie, cu leziuni în zona feței și o fractură la mână, având nevoie de 45-50 de zile de îngrijiri medico-legale. A treia victimă, Paul Apoahidean, a ajuns la Clinica de Neurologie. După croșeul aplicat cu mare precizie, Apoahidean a căzut și s-a lovit cu capul de o bordură. Acesta necesită 20- 25 de zile de îngrijiri medicale.

[His idea of fun Saturday night was to KO some passers-by, 3 of which wound up in hospital: the first one with a double mandible fracture, the second one with lesions on his face and a broken arm, the third one after hitting his head on a pavement curb.]

First public Holocaust education center to open in Romania

Elie Wiesel: “I am honored and deeply moved that my cherished home in Sighet has become a place Romanians and others can learn about the crimes of the Holocaust, and how the Jewish community was wiped out.”

BUCHAREST -- The first public Holocaust education center in Romania will open Sunday during a special event in the north western town of Sighet in the pre-war home of Nobel Prize-winning author Elie Wiesel.

The “Holocaust Cellar” will become a new feature of the Holocaust museum in the courtyard of the old Jewish Ghetto of Sighet and will serve as a learning center dedicated to the 13,000 local Holocaust victims.

The opening is sponsored jointly by the Romanin government, the city of Sighet, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, the Romanian Jewish Federation and Limmud FSU.

This is the first in a series of events that will mark 70 years since the expulsion of the last Jews of northern Transylvania to Auschwitz.

Among the events will be a concert memorializing Holocaust victims on Saturday night May 17, after Shabbat.

“I am honored and deeply moved that my cherished home in Sighet has become a place Romanians and others can learn about the crimes of the Holocaust, and how the Jewish community was wiped out,” said Professor Elie Wiesel.

“The opening of the Holocaust Cellar supports my life’s efforts to ensure that humanity never forgets the evil that took place there and throughout Europe.”

In 1944, two days after Passover, the Jews of Maramures County, in northern Transylvania, were rounded up and forced into 13 ghettos. Eventually, 131,639 Jews from Marmures County were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and most were exterminated.

Between 280,000 and 380,000 Romanian and Ukrainian Jews were murdered or died during the Holocaust in Romania and the territories under its control. An additional 135,000 Romanian Jews living under Hungarian control in Northern Transylvania also perished in the Holocaust, as did some 5,000 Romanian Jews in other countries.

“The story of the Jews who lived in North Transylvania has not been widely told until now, and we’re proud to help begin this next chapter,” said Chaim Chesler, chairman of the Memory Committee of the Claims Conference. “The education center commemorates the terrible fate that befell the Jews of this area, and ensures their story will not be forgotten.

Poverty: Bulgaria and Romania Are the Worst

A third at risk of poverty in 5 countries of the ‘New Europe

(ANSA) — TRIESTE — Out of 120 million EU citizens who are at risk of poverty or social exclusion, many are living in the New Europe, according to some data released by Eurostat. “In 2013, more than a third of the population”, according to the EU Statistical Office, “was at risk of poverty “ in five EU member countries: Bulgaria (48%), followed by Romania (40.4%), Greece (35.7%), Latvia (35.1%) and Hungary (33.5%). Not only shadows, but also a light: the Czech Republic, which was the EU member country that recorded the lowest percentage (14.6%) of people at risk of poverty, followed by the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden.

Eurostat also reported that between 2008 and 2013 the number of the population at risk of poverty/social exclusion has increased in most EU states, with some exceptions. Among these are Finland, France and Poland, where the rate dropped from 30.5% in 2008 to 25.8% in 2013, Romania (from 44.2% to 40.4%), Austria (from 20.6% to 18.8%), Slovakia (from 20.6% to 19.8%), the Czech Republic (from 15.3% to 14.6%). As for the “severely poor people” (those who are unable to pay bills or heat their home), the worst performances were recorded in Bulgaria (43%), Romania (28.5%), Hungary (26.8%). At the EU level, the percentage was 9.6% in 2013 (9.9% in 2012), recording an increase compared to 2008 (8.5%). In 2013, Eurostat has underlined, 122.6 million of EU citizens (24.5%) were at risk of poverty or social exclusion, that is a slight decrease compared with 2012 (24.8%), but an increase compared with 2008 (23.8%).

Gentlemen,


The shameful Ordinance no. 31/2002, through wich the official recognition of a claimed holocaust made by romanian people against the jews has been done, is the work of the most corrupt prime minister in the history of the romanians. A politician, as more corrupt he is, as easier can he be blackmailed or manipulated. Indifferent of the circumstance that made Adrian Năstase commit such an act against the truth, the attitude of our political class, wich didn’t fiind the energy and the moral resources to face against this abuse, isn’t less blamable. The promulgation of the Ordinance is a fact that disqualifies the political class in nowadays Romania, proving a disregard of the politicians to the romanian nation, to the values made by the romanian people through his history.

At that time we, Uniunea Vatra Românească (The Romanian Fatherland Union ), and also other voices of the public opinion in the country and outside, protested through all the methods we had, denouncing this behaviour equal to the fatherland traitorship. We protested because we have all the necessary proof to reject the detestable accusation of genocide and holocaust brought to our parents.

Unfortunatly, the things didn’t stop here, and today we assist to a new escaladation of the lie, of the anti-romanian diversion. We refer to the intention to rise in Bucharest a new monument in the memory of the jews and gypsies, victims of the claimed genocide made by the Ion Antonescu government. That what really happened to the jews and gypsies deported by Antonescu over the Nistru wasn’t a genocide, it was an act of legitimate defence of the autorities, wich in the middle of the war were faced by the behavior without loiality of some jews and gypsies, proven or known or suspected to be agents of the Soviet Union.

The deportation of some people suspected to collaborate with the enemy is a preventive measure common in times of war all over the world. In exactly the same period of time, the americans procedeed the same way, by isolating the japanese or italians suspected to have anti-american attitudes or activities. For many americans, the simple quality of being a japanese or an italian ethnic was enough to go to a concentration camp made by the american government. Not even by far have the italians or japanese in USA done the meannesses done by romainian citizens of jewish etnicity from Basarabia or Bucovina. Because of the difficulties in the recognition of the criminals, and because the jewish community declared itself incapable of helping in the discovery of the criminals, Ion Antonescu decided to displace all the jew from Basarabia and Bucovina, guilty or not-guilty, in a place where they could be easilly watched and some of them stopped of commiting other crimes of anti-romanian diversion. This measure cannot be named genocide or holocaust. It is practiced even nowadays in the state of Israel. With a much weaker justification that the one invoked by the marshall Ion Antonescu government.

The same way, no gypsy was deported because he was a gypsy, the proof being the small number of gypsies that fell under the incidence of these precaution measures. It has been proven that the nomad gypsy tent hosted manytimes people that observed and registred everything that could have millitary interest and to transmit these informations to the enemy… Nobody could prove that the deportation of the gypsies to the Bug affected large effectives of people, of unguilty people. In specifc way, the gypsies from Bucharest, that minded their own buissness and didn’t brake the state laws, didn’t experience anything. So, the idea of rising o monument, a memorial devoted to the jews and gypsies, victims of Antonescu’s genocide is fully against the hystoric truth. Through such a monument it means to worship the lack of loiallity to the romanian state, the crimes against the romanian people! Even more in Bucharest such a monument can’t be proven. From Bucharest have been deported 300 jews, known by the state Security as soviet or british agents, wich at the end of the war, almost all of them, aproximalty 290, have been alive. Even admitting that those who claim on the subject of a romanian holocaust, this memorial can’t be raised anywhere but where this happened. This meaning nowhere!… Not even in Transnistria!

This is why, in the name of the truth and the romanian people, we demand you, high reignors and the whole political class, we demand to stop this attitudes of indifference and political indolence and to stop any initiative ment to escaladate the untruth that you officialized through the shame-ordinance! Organize, people, a serious scientific debate on the theme of this holocaust, take attention to those who criticize and reject the raport of the Wiesel commision and, if you try to show your filo-semitism, try to understand that those more in interest to establish in the fastest way the truth upon the holocaust are the jews themselves! The truth cannot be antisemitic! The fear to be shown as antisemitic cannot justify the lie!

The unhappy idea of rising in Romania a holocaust-memorial will force us to remind you, or to bring it to everybodies knowledge a completely abnormal situation, even comic, laughable, if it wouldn’t be very unpleasent and shameful, on that even nowadays we are embaressed to talk about, because we have that weird feeling to be ashamed because of the shame of the other. Better said we are ashamed because of the shamelessness of the other. Romania allready hosts some holocaust memorials, monuments of the well-known soap „of pure jewish grease”, raised in the memory of the 900 000 jews transformed by Hitler into soap. This monuments, clumsy samples of holocaustizied histery and schizophrenia, force us to be more circumspect with other similar initiatives. Before we raise other monuments of the holocaust – of wich we have reasons to fear that they could be as lying as the monuments of soap, I think that we should go immediatly to the demolishing of the existing ones: even from the ‚70’s, the jewish experts from Israel established that, fortunatly, the so-called soap made by german soldiers out of jewish boddies, soap exposed through all the museums of the world as jewish holy reliquies, is a totally benign soap, like all the other soap in the world… Never the germans, or anybody else produced soap using as prime-matter the human being!… Nevertheless the corpses of some jews. (900 000 jews, according to the „official” theory launched by Simon Wiesental!…)

This denial – I repeat: that came from the academic authorities from Israel and the USA, didn’t stop the romanian authorities to approve the demand of some giddy-headed jewish leaders to the rise of some “memorials” in the memory of the jews transformed in soap…Shamelessness or insanity?

What was in the head of the romanian authorities? And, most importantly, the most legitimate question: in wich stately reason are these stupid edificies, dedicated to some ghostly jews transformed into soap by even more ghostly germans, still standing?!...

Don’t you fear, my gentlemen, that through the rise in Bucharest of a holocaust memorial, through your indulgence on this initiative, you do not distinguish yourselves through nothing from the idiots and nothingworthy people that imagined and builded those stupid monuments of the soap, monuments of the iudeo-wallach imbecillity?

Do “jews” and their servants from Romania want another holocaust-memorial in Bucharest, in the heart of Romania? Nobody can stop them to demand the moon in the sky. But such a demand cannot be even seriously taken, it must be preceeded by (1) the demolishing of the foolish and ridicously “monuments of the soap”, that have been proven to be fully lying, (2) the official, solemn, presentation of excuses to the romanian people for this constructions that profanated the romanian land and (3) the presentation of all guaranties that the holocaust memorial, planned to be built in Bucharest is according to the hystorical truth! That it isn’t a hateful and stupid lie like the public recordings dedicated to the well-known soap!

And, before anything, a monument of the jewish sufferings made by the romanians shoud be built only after a memorial of the romaniansthat suffered from the jews, because these romanians haven’t been a few, like there haven’t been a few the jews that sistematically have been doing crimes against the romanians, the state and the romanian people. We don’t have anything against that such a monument shoud be raised in Tel Aviv!

A special mention to the General Mayor of the Capital: you promised to the electors that you will govern Bucharest through consulting of the population in the main problems. Now you have the chance, but also the obligation to organize a referendum on the subject of this memorial of the holocaust in Bucharest with the following question (or another similar one): is Bucharest a suitable place to raise a memorial of the Holocaust dedicated to the memory of the jews and gypsies persecuted by Ion Antonescu?

The new memorial wouldn’t be the first fraudulent monument raised in Bucharest! It is for us well known the destiny of the others: they disappeared one after another from the landscape of Bucharest. We do not doubt that the same will be the destiny of the memorial that has to record in stone and copper the biggest lie and offence ever brought to the Romanian People. Our warning cannot be brought without a specification: You will pay, gentlemen, for this misery!

The Romanian Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, has conceded victory in the country's presidential run-off to an ethnic German mayor, Klaus Iohannis.

"I called Mr Iohannis and I congratulated him," Mr Ponta, a Social Democrat, told reporters.

Early official results are expected on Monday. Exit polls had suggested a tight race.

Romania is one of the most corrupt EU states, something which centre-right Mr Iohannis has vowed to tackle.

Despite the election result, Mr Ponta told a local television channel that he had "no reason to resign" as prime minister.

He had hoped to become the country's youngest president, replacing the incumbent Traian Basescu who cannot stand for re-election after serving two terms.

‘Life in Romania Worse Than During Ceausescu’, Poll Shows

Citizens aged over 50 the most disappointed

(ANSA) — TRIESTE — According to the opinion poll published in the Inscop research centre in Romania, more than 40% of Romanians thinks that the situation in the country is worse today than during the communist regime lead by Nicolae Ceausescu. According to this poll, only 33% of the questioned thinks that the current situation is better than in 1989, while 17% finds that things have remained the same.

The Inscop analysts explained that such results are not a sign of a nostalgic wave towards the communist regime, but more a reaction to the negative circumstances — in terms of possibility of finding a permanent job, or poor health and education system — considered worse than before 1989. The most disappointed are Romanians over 50 years old.

Namely, 45,8% of the questioned in this age group retains that living conditions in Romania today are worse than 25 years ago.

The poll has been commissioned by the Adevarul daily.

jewsign Romania vows to resolve stalled restitution of Jewish property

Quote:
Romania’s prime minister said he would try to resolve what critics have called flaws in the Balkan country’s process for offering restitution for Jewish property.

Victor Ponta gave these assurances during a meeting last week in Bucharest with members of a delegation of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, together with representatives of the U.S. and Israeli governments and leaders of the local Jewish community.

Romania isn't facing increasing migration pressure, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Gabriel Oprea declared after a meeting of the National Committee for Special Emergencies.

According to Oprea, the situation in Romania has stayed within last year's parameters both in terms of attempts at illegal state border crossing and the number of asylum seekers.

Yet, the official announced that Romania would strengthen security measures at its border with Serbia.

Oprea said Romania provided security for 2,070 km of the external borders of the European Union, 546 km of which shared a border with Serbia.

It was also decided that authorized state organizations monitor the developments in the regional situation, so that the measures in the national security plan may be adjusted for the latest dynamics.

Europe is currently facing an unprecedented immigration crisis as a result of people coming to the continent in need of international protection. Most of them come from north Africa and the Middle East, mainly going to Schengen Area member states.

Nearly 1 in 4 Romanians want their country free of Jews — poll

Quote:
Nearly a quarter of Romanian respondents in a survey on Jews said their country should have no Jewish residents.

The results of the survey among 1,000 Romanian adults were published last week by the Elie Wiesel National Institute for Holocaust Studies in Romania, which commissioned the Centre for Opinion and Market Studies to conduct the poll in June.

Eleven percent described Jews as “a problem for Romania” and 22 percent said they would like them only as tourists. Media reports about the poll did not specify its margin of error.

Romania had a Jewish population of over 750,000 before its pro-Nazi regime, led by Ion Antonescu, collaborated in the murder of about half of Romanian Jewry in the Holocaust. Antonescu’s troops also massacred 120,000 Jews in present-day Ukraine.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents indicated they had heard of the Holocaust — a 12 percent increase over a similar poll conducted in 2007 — but only a third of those respondents who knew about the Holocaust believe it happened in their country.

Only 19 percent of respondents who were aware of the Holocaust and said it occurred in Romania said Antonescu’s government was responsible. Some 54 percent of survey respondents called Antonescu “a patriot.”

Romanians who survived the Holocaust mostly left for Israel and now Romania has only a few thousand Jews, mostly living in Bucharest.

Romania prosecutors: 20 years for communist-era prison guard

Quote:
BUCHAREST, ROMANIA Prosecutors at Romania's top appeals court on Wednesday called for a 20-year sentence for a communist-era prison commander convicted of crimes against humanity for the deaths of 12 political prisoners.

Alexandru Visinescu, 90, was convicted in July for the deaths at the Ramnicu Sarat prison in eastern Romania during his 1956 to 1963 command. Visinescu, the first commander of a communist-era jail in Romania to stand trial, appealed to the High Court of Cassation and Justice.

At the final hearing Wednesday, Visinescu wept and pleaded: "Let me die!" He has said he was following orders, but declined to testify either verbally or in writing.

He was asked six times by the judge and prosecutor why inmates died under his command. He answered just once, suggesting they died of old age.

The prison housed people who had been members of the intellectual, political and military elite in Romania before World War II and who had run afoul of the communist authorities.

Romania struggles to confront Holocaust past

Bucharest - More than 70 years after the Holocaust, the suffering of survivors in Romania is often overlooked or played down, even if the country has taken some steps towards recognising what happened, historians and survivors say.

After denying its role in the Holocaust for years, in 2003 Romania set up an international commission of historians led by survivor and Nobel peace laureate Elie Wiesel to look into the matter.

Default Israeli billionaire Beny Steinmetz is among group of four Israeli businessmen who attempted to take over state-owned lands

Romania seeks arrest of Israeli billionaire over corruption scandal

Israeli billionaire Beny Steinmetz is among group of four Israeli businessmen accused of involvement in real estate corruption scandal in Romania • Four attempted to take over state-owned lands in Bucharest through fraud and bribery, reports local media.

Romanian authorities have accused Steinmetz, businessman and political consultant Tal Silberstein, Moshe Agavi and former Prime Minister's Office Director Shimon Sheves of conducting illicit real estate deals that cost the state some $150 million.

The four, along with Romanian businessman Remus Truica and Paul-Philippe Hohenzollern, also known as Prince Paul of Romania, allegedly attempted to take over state-owned lands near Bucharest by way of fraud and bribery.

Remus Truica was arrested on Wednesday after being questioned at the directorate's local headquarters in Brasov. The prosecution is charging him with setting up and running an organized crime group.

The four have denied involvement in any illegal action attributed to Truica.

Romania: Holocaust institute opposes journalist on TV board

BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania's Holocaust institute has protested the appointment of a well-known journalist to the board of the country's public television station, saying it is disrespectful to the victims of the Holocaust.

The Elie Wiesel Institute for the Study of the Holocaust said Wednesday that Oana Stanciulescu is unsuitable for the position due to her criticism of a recent law that punishes Holocaust denial or the promotion of the fascist Legionnaires' Movement with prison sentences of up to three years.

Her place on the 13-member board, approved by Parliament Tuesday, has generated strong reactions.

The party that represents the interests of ethnic Hungarians walked out of Parliament, and the head of the Jewish community, Aurel Vainer, also protested.

Stanciulescu's supporters respect her anti-communist views and support for the victims of communism.

Romania to speed up Holocaust-era property restitution

BUCHAREST, April 26 - Romania is to fast-track claims from Holocaust survivors under an amended law on property restitution which are expected to be passed by parliament next week, legislators said on Tuesday.

Romania was an ally of Nazi Germany during World War Two until it changed sides in August 1944, and much of the property seized during the war was later nationalised under communist rule which followed.

Romanian Parliament Approves Expediting Holocaust Claims

Some 40,000 claims were filed before 2003 deadline but have yet to be processed.

The Romanian parliament on Tuesday passed legislation to expedite property claims that Holocaust victims and the Romanian Jewish community file, The World Jewish Restitution Organization announced.

The restitution organization also noted that the legislation enjoyed support across the political spectrum.

According to the NGO, it had negotiated with the Romanian government over the past year to speed up the processing of over 40,000 claims filed before a 2003 deadline that have been languishing in bureaucracy.

"This law acknowledges the urgent needs of Romanian Holocaust survivors, who have waited too long to have their property claims resolved,” said Gideon Taylor, the chairman of operations for the World Jewish Restitution Organization. “It also ensures that all pre-Holocaust Jewish organizations are recognized as integral parts of the vibrant pre-War Jewish life in Romania and that property that once belonged to them is returned to the Jewish community. We look forward to working with the Romanian government to ensure swift implementation of this legislation.”

“In the past three months, Romania, Serbia, and Latvia have each passed important restitution laws,” added Taylor. “There is momentum building as countries recognize the urgency of providing restitution during the lifetime of survivors. We encourage other countries to act now.”

The NGO noted that the new law resolves other issues regarding Jewish property claims. They include some 55 Jewish communal properties, like schools and burial societies, the had been taken away from the pre-Holocaust community, as well as some 40 properties that the Communist regime ruling Romania had forced the community to "donate."
