Argentina will not accept the remains of Nazi officer Erich Priebke

Argentina will not accept the remains of Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke who died in Italy, officials in Buenos Aires said on Friday. Priebke died in Rome aged 100 after serving nearly 15 years under house arrest for a World War II massacre in Italy for which he never expressed remorse.

Priebke lived normally with his name in Bariloche since 1949

“Foreign Minister Hector Timerman has given the order not to accept the slightest move to allow the return of the body of Nazi criminal Erich Priebke to our country,” the foreign ministry said in a tweet.

“Argentines will not accept this kind of affront to human dignity.”

Priebke lawyer Paolo Giachini had said he would be buried near his wife in Argentina, where he fled after the war.

Priebke lived for more than 40 years in the city of Bariloche, in southwest Argentina, where he was arrested in 1994 and then extradited to Italy for trial. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1998 for his role in a bloodbath at Rome's Ardeatine caves in March 1944 that left 335 people dead, including 75 Jews.

But because of his age and ill-health he was allowed to serve out his life sentence at Giachini's home. Nicknamed the “butcher of the Ardeatine caves”, Priebke always insisted that he had only ever obeyed orders. He called himself “the last prisoner of war,”

Two Jewish organizations, the Israelite Argentine Mutual Aid Association (AMIA) and the Delegation of Argentine Jewish Associations (DAIA), welcomed the refusal by Buenos Aires.

The fact that Priebke had “resided with impunity for decades in our country, enjoying a life that so many civilians had been deprived of” was “an affront to the principles of the Republic,” the DAIA said.

It urged people “not to forget and not forgive the Nazi genocide, or any type of genocide.”

Argentina's Jewish community is the largest in Latin America, consisting of some 300,000 members.

Before his extradition to Italy, Priebke had been living a tranquil life since 1949 in the mountain resort town of Bariloche along with other former Nazis. He was considered a pillar of the local community, helping to promote tourism and was even involved in local politics.

Despite what I believe to be an exaggerated response by the Argentine foreign minister, (yes the same guy that singed the selling out of the Victims of the AMIA to Iran in the same day of the Holocaust rememberance). I think you are being unfair here. It was Peron that sympathized with the Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, and elaborated the escape route for the fugitives in exchange for money. But that was Peron’s decision at the time…
Despite this it was a Peronist government in the early 90s that actually was the first one to take an interest in the matter and find out the truth about of what where till then just rumors.

@11 I agree Peron was a great admirer of fascists, in particular Mussolini, and used his brand of fascism as a template for Peronism. You have to wonder why Peron and Peronism is still so beloved by the majority of Argentines and why no one can get elected unless they claim to be a Peronist.

Argentina allowed many Nazis to hide out in Argentina - for money. It is well documented at the Holocaust Museum in Buenos Aires (well worth a visit). Though some had to move on to Paraguay when Nazi hunters picked up the scent.

Yes, it was other governments in other times. The world evolves as does civilisation. We cannot blame current governments and the people in general for actions carried out in another time, generations ago. Though it should be acknowledged. IMO

It still does not explain the popularity of the Perons, Juan or Eva, considering the foundation of their ideals.

14) They are two different things Peron’s popularity and his connections with the Nazi fugitives.

I know Peronism is difficult to understand from outside, but I really don’t think he Peron himself is that admired in the younger generations of Argentines, it’s pretty much the grandpa’s old talk for them. If you mean peronist party as such is much more underrated than you believe, the problem is most of the argentine political spectrum is made up of Peronists or at least have “Peronist DNA” in them. I myself -blonde and from an anti peronist party- can gather a group of friends here adopt the “V” sign and put up a banner of the pictures of Peron and Evita in the central plaza here and run for local office claiming the guys that are now in charge are not real Peronists that follow the original teachings of Peron and Evita… And we would lose because the mayor runs all the assistance and welfare checks, he gets families from outside to squatter land and then facilitates them with the ownership titles so of course all these people of poor backgrounds vote for him.

As for the Nazi fugitives, I think most people here are not interested and even more so are not even aware yet.
However Uki Goñi the producer of “Nazi gold in Argentina” said it’s not something you can speak about freely in public Universities in Argentina. For intellectual circles no matter if they are left or right, it must be pretty embarrassing I suppose
16 ElaineB (#) Oct 13th, 2013 - 06:40 pm Report abuse
@16 I am not sure Juan Peron's Peronism is that disconnected with the Nazi fugitives. Argentina was pretty much backing the Germans until a few months before the end of the war when it looked like they were going to lose.

Peron modelled Argentine nationalism on the fascism of the Nazi's and Mussolini and it still resonates now. Kirchnerism uses many of the elements to this day. CFK appears before a picture of Evita at every opportunity. It is still a thread running through Argentine politics.

You are right that well-educated young Argentines see Peron in a different, far more critical light but I know as many that will defend Juan and Evita. Admittedly they appear to be the financially, less educated who swallow fantasies passed down through the generations without independent thought.

I do appreciate that Peronism has evolved but it still uses some of the idealism that continues to hold Argentina back.

16) We’ll definitely Peron in his days in Italy learnt the power of symbolisms like the huge banners these totalitarian regimes used at that time in Europe and the USSR.
Peron may of being a nationalist (maybe even slightly fascist in the early 40s) but unlike Mussolini he had a capacity of bringing into his camp people of different political backgrounds like socialists, communists, trade unionists, desarrollistas, etc. And for that a lot of core beliefs of the original Peron had to be abandoned for the cult of personality and idiosyncrasy that united all of them. So it’s wrong to say Peronism is nationalist as such.

They were sectors of the Argentine army (like the group of officers GOU which Peron was a member of) during the II WW that were pro-Axis and the other important and influential politicians like Patron Costas at that time who were pro-Allied. Though Argentina’s overall neutrality is read by historians like a slight pro-German stance.

Now the Argentine LEFT (which Kirchnerism is inclined with) even the younger generations have a clear preference for Evita above Juan Peron. And that has a lot to do with Peron’s return in 1973 who clashed with the Montoneros. I can give you a couple of examples and proof about statements of Cristina (off the record) and her Chief cabinet minister (on the record) at that time made, to why she is disgusted by J. Peron but they are actually quite rood

The “Marcha Peronista” or simply referred to as the “Marchita” is the traditional anthem of the Peronist party... This is what Anibal Fernandez responded when the son of the composer (who has the rights over the anthem) denied its use to the kirchenerists for the a political campaign, (I think it was the 2011 one) as he claimed that Kirchnerism is not Peronism…

Basically the idea of what I’m trying to exemplify is that Peronist symbolism is used and abused by the politicians now days but they don’t take seriously at all the old General mythology behind doors at the vey least...The Peronist left or Montoneros were expelled by Peron when he returned to Argentina in 1973. In fact it is very lickely that he himself supported the formation of the AAA to hunt the communist down. So the crackdown actually started long before the coup in 1976

“I agree Peron was a great admirer of fascists”

Nope you are wrong Peron was not an admirer of fascist as you said. That is folk of the necons from “El Campo” and groups that participate in any “coup d'état” in Argentina.

He was sent to Europe by the Army to observe the possible outcomes in Europe due to the irresponsibility of the allies after WWI especially France and UK that imposed a 132 billions Marks plus territory concessions to Germany and that was the beginning of the WWII.

Even John Keynes (British economist) was against that treaty and predicted terrible consequences for Europe.

On the other hand Peron was a fanatic of tinkers like Jacques Maritain (French Philosopher), Emmanuel Mounier (French Philosopher) both obsessed for a society more plural, open, democratic and popular participation. What contradicts with the “El campo golpista folk”, etc.

Anyway if you are interested in fascist and Nazy lovers you have to look for this into British Crown and big fish in UK society at that time.

Reading crap from Tata Yofre and Ceferino Reato ha ha

First what have to do Peron with the Holocaust WWII to start with?

Peron was studding and making reports about the consequences in Europe before started the WWII.

Peron came to power in 1946 while the WWII was finish in 1945 (a year before). So as you can see NO Peron influence or whatsoever with Germany during WWII or Nazi Germany. Just folklore from the Necons (The campo Mafia golpist and foreigner interest).

In fact one of the bigger supported of Germany pre WWII was an Argentine Radical president called Hipólito Yrigoyen who shut up the door behind him upsetting the League of Nations allies (US, Britain and France). Because he did not disagree to support the allies to put Germany outside the league of nations. This cost to Argentina to start to be marginalised by the allies and huge cost in trade.

This was all made by the Radical and not Peron as the tale says.

Germany took this gesture as full support for Germany from Argentina and the Nazi party started to organised meetings in Argentina like the meeting of the Nazi party in ‘30 in the “Luna Park”.

Again No Peron around there as him came to power 16 years later.

Then Hipólito Yrigoyen was deposed by General Uriburu with another typical “coup d 'éta” supported by “El Campo”, the press and the Seven Sisters (Oil companies producer) because he allowed YPF (Oil State Company) to intervene in the market to fix price.

I remind you that the “Times Magazine” (US) awarded Adolf Hitler with a full cover and the title of the man of the year.

The American Charles Lindbergh was a fanatic supporter of Adolf Hittle like many, many Americans and British at that time.

“I’m always open to reading other sources as long as they are honest and credible authors”

Like Tata Yofre and Ceferino Reato perhaps?

Peron was in charge of the National Department of Labour at that time with no influence in other matters.

He provided better working condition for workers and those actions gained the anger of Greedy Neocon US ambassador Spruille Braden and “El campo maffia” who were quite busy organising campaigns against Peron at that time.

One of them was to portrait Peron as a Nazi.

But what was behind all this?

Greedy Braden didn’t care a thing about Nazis or whatsoever.

His only concern was that those improvements condition for workers don’t set a bad example and that will widespread to the rest of SA where he has commercial interest like in mining in Chile and agri-business elsewhere.

He also was a lobbyist of the United Fruit Company and participated in the “coup d’ eta” in Gautemala.

Despite all hard working from Braden and the Maffia Campo Peron become president in 1946.

“Did I ever say he did?? Read again”

You are tying harder but unfortunately dates and historic facts cannot provide you a line to links events to picture Peron better know as “el Pocho” as a Nazi or whatever you are trying to prove to your ridicule statements.

Are you not relative of Lilita DesCarrio perhaps?

Here we go again

“What Peron was definitely responsible for was organizing a escape route for the Nazi criminals in hiding in Europe and bring them over to Argentina in exchange for dirty money”

You are wrong again the “Ratline” or “The route of rats” or “The Vatican's Rat Line” was organised (as you can realise) by the name by the “Holy Vatican” in Europe.

You know this little place where everyone are dressed with funny stuff, always are rumouring funny stuff to the sky (BTW none never answer) and you have a compatriot there with a funny name called Francis, Francisco or better know in Italian as Francesco.

Sai cosa voglio dire?

So next time you see Bergoglio or Francisco or... around ask him why the Vatican provided criminal Nazis with passports and fake papers to emigrate to other countries. Will you please?

And in fact more of them ended up in US and UK.

What Peron did as many other countries like US, UK, etc. was to recruit scientist and engineers from Germany, Austria, and Italy.

Like Kurt Tank who designed the “Pulqui” a jet fighter in Argentina.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Tank

And always with the help of the “oli-garcas smelling poop cow” and little help from their friends started the rumour. You know?

Ask “Lilita DesCarrio” about it she has a good training in doing that kind of stuff.

BTW have you heard the Heavy metal version?

Most of them remained in hiding through Europe until they can finally get away of what we are talking about one year or a couple. It’s true that some of the criminals left Argentina, but that was only possible with new passports…Argentine Passports. Not only Germans arrived, a lot of Nazis from Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Vichy France and Italy escaped too. Its imssible to know how many actually came in.

Foreign Minster Timmerman is only grandstanding for political points. Priebke's family, or his lawyer no doubt already had prior plans for his death and his remains.

But one important lesson is missing here, that is germane to current affairs.

In the YouTube interview with then Sr. Erich Priebke in Argentina, before he was deported, and tried, .Priebke claims “ I was just following orders. That is what you had to do then. ” Sound familiar ?

“The Vatican provided aid to the Nazis too”

No, no, no is not “TOO”, the Vatican played the main role in the escape of Criminal Nazis from Europe. Without their help none could emigrate to anywhere. Capisce ragazzo?

Now you have to wonder what the Vatican have received in exchange for these favours? Gold perhaps?

“but Argentina as it declared war on Germany on the verge of the fall of Berlin...”

Argentina declare war to the Japan Empire together with many others American nations in 1945 under the umbrella of the “Panamerican Conference of Mexico” where 20 American Nations agreed to declare war to Japan in solidarity with US that was still in war with Japan.

The war declaration was signed by de facto “President Edelmiro Julián Farrell” of Argentina in 1945 “DECRETO Nº 6945/45 B.O. 28 de marzo de 1945”

Here you have the news of the signing by Chile in 1945
www.emol.com/especiales/infografias/20050412_guerrajapon01.htm

Then was signed the TIAR and later was formed the OEA.

The film “Oro Nazi” made by Rolo Pereyra (death) of your link is a thriller based on a book wrote by “Jorge Camarasa” a journalist of the Clarin Group and La Nacion. All conspiracy theory that provide him a job in the Jewish org nazi hunters “Samuel Wiesenthal” they love all these stuff. Yo can go too, may be you will get a job too.

Anyway who didn’t want to declare war to Germany and Italy were “Roberto M. Ortiz” (Partido Radical) and his vice president who become later President “Ramón Castillo” (Partido Demócrata Nacional) Conservator.

Ramon Cantillo, sent a letter to US president Roosevelt telling him that his government (of Argentina) did not consider US in state of a belligerent country and that his government keeps the position of neutrality and that will not declare war to Germany or Italy.

Now, what next?

Are you going to tell me that you have pictures of Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden on vacation in Bariloche with Cristina Kirchner?

The men you were hiding committed atrocities against civilians, as Concentration Camp personnel, or as the architects of Hitler's “Final Solution”.

Peronism was only in power until 1955, after which it remained outlawed from politics until returned in 1973 and by then they had much different and urgent matters to attend to they were amongst a civil war between themselves. The next Peronist government came to power in the early 1990s, and it was Menem’s Government that actually did the declassification of information which later produced what we know today and facilitated the extradition of for example this guy here, which now one wants his remains.
I don’t know if the UCR and Military governments may have know about the likelihood of some Nazi in hiders, it was clear when Eichmann was abducted in the 60s, but the existence of a actual network set up by Peron in Europe to bring over criminals and fugitives is unlikely

Your logic is fundamentally flawed.

Firstly Continents are not “responsible” for anything. Britain is no more responsible for what Sweden does than Argentina is for what Peru does.

Continents are geographical terms, Vietnam happens to be in the same continent as Yemen, it is in no way responsible for Yemeni activity...so this idea that you can hold continents responsible is straight out of the Nostril bumper book of being a turd.

It is especially ridiculous when you are trying to hold the European continent responsible for its 20th century activities, and seperating it from countries South America...which is a product of the activities of certain European countries in the 16-20th centuries.

Countries are responsible for their actions, and as we have established previously, Uruguay has very few actions to be responsible for. Their share of genocide in South America perhaps...and then nothing. Nothing bad, nothing good..nothing...yawn

Argentina on the other hand has got things to take responsibility for, but they don't. The list of Argentine reasons to be ashamed is long, and its hard to think of a counter-balance, anything at all for which they should be proud.

Your racism and hatrid of the UK is your childish perogative, you can rightly point out to the many incidents in history for which the UK could be ashamed, and at the same time ignore the long list for which it should be proud...better than having no list of either like Uruguay.

There are no continental countries (except Antartica) and certainly no collective responsibility for a continents history or actions. Just countries that happen to be in continents.

So your original post about South America taking responsibility for European criminals is IGNORANT BULLSHIT.

Heres a quick wiki quote.
”During World War II, 4,000 Argentines served with all three British armed services, even though Argentina was officially a neutral country during the war.[40][41] Over 600 Argentine volunteers served with both the Royal Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force, mostly in No. 164 (Argentine) squadron,[42] whose shield bore the sun from the Flag of Argentina and the motto, ”Determined We Fly (Firmes Volamos)“.[40]”

I guess that balances the scales then by your simplistic reasoning on this matter.
Had it been the case that the above didn't happen no doubt minor individual incidents would be used to infer an entire nation of pro-nazi fascists.

And I'd hasten to add that indeed “the British fought a war to stop fascism and the Nazis” .... but among other interests, such as self preservation, ...both blighty and nicely profitable bits of the empire.
It wasn't just 'mission go save Europe and the Jews'. Certainly not when German boots got as far as to be on British soil in Jersey.

You are talking Rubbish...almost gibberish.

Firstly a continent is not responsible for anything, so your initial premise is bullshit. A continent is just a land-mass, there is no continent on Earth that speaks with a unified voice, that represents a single group of people or has ever gone to war “as a continent”. Quite simply that argument is bullshit.

It is this ignorance that leads to such statements as SAM for SAM that some of the malvinistas troll...utter utter crap.

So, once you have lost that argument, you then seem to try and argue that countries are not responsible for their actions only individuals. this made me laugh a great deal as it undermines all you anti-british rhetoric for the past year or so. However, it too is bullshit.

Most countries are either governed by the will of the people, the vote of the people or the de facto consent of the people. Occassionally, there are despotic leaders acting clearly against the interests of the populus with no vehicle to for their own people to do anything about it...since you are against international intervention you indirectly condone this form of oppression and genocide.

However, I disgree that the majority of atrocities are the fault or responsibility of a few individuals, the nation state that either elected or failed to control them is where the responsibility lies.

You are being disingenuous as to why military rule took effect in Uruguay.

Had it not been for “your lot” (the terrorists who had Pepe as a member) and their lack of insight as to the expected outcome of their “putting the country right” then the military would not have gone from a boy scout operation to the eventual drain on the finances of the country. NOR would it have got hold of the idea that THEY knew better than the people themselves.

I have to say here, that the people stood by and did nothing whilst the 3,000 thugs raided banks, etc.and it took a killing to start the decline in public support for the band, led by an illiterate “lawyer”, who NEVER passed the final exam (bit of a trend in SA for this), but of course HE knew better!

Of course Pepe is exactly what the present school children should have as an example to follow. I still remember the stupid comment he made about he is not worried by inflation because he went through it with no problems. Of course he did, HE ROBBED BANKS, FFS! And now he is the President.

The nearest thing to it in Britain / Ireland is the disgrace of having the two IRA murderers in power for part of N. Ireland. At least the British in N. Ireland have the measure of them. Good RCC members they are, so that’s alright.

Now I don't know if you're pointing the finger at Argentina, but if you are then lets take your comment...
“However, I disgree that the majority of atrocities are the fault or responsibility of a few individuals, the nation state that either elected or failed to control them is where the responsibility lies”.
... and then have a look at 1960's Kenya. (mass detentions, concentration camps and casual, as you will, executions and severe beatings)

As for ChrisR's references to northern Ireland, if we go by monkeymagic's standard then Britain is a whole lot closer to fascism in recent years than Argentina has ever been, for its actions against a specific demographic i.e Catholics and/or Irish nationalists...nazi's had that ... Internment without reason ... nazi's had that... denial of civil rights ... nazi's had that ... civilian massacres ... nazi's had that ... single demographic police force ... nazi's had that.

Exactly my point. Britain is responsible for the atrocities you mention. Not a few individuals..Britain. Britian is also responsible for discoveries such as Penicillin, not just Alexander Fleming. How many Kenyans are still alive becaus eof that single discovery?

You see dickhead there are two sides to the British coin, many terrible things to be ashamed of, and many wonderful things for which to be proud.

Uruguay also has two sides to its coin, both are pretty much blank.

Argentinas coin only has one side, humilating, shameful, disgraceful genocide, corruption, debt and cowardice. That is not just the fault of Peron or Videla or Kirchener...it is the fault of the nation state of Argentina...for allowing such a shameful past.

You seem either to be deliberately misinterpreting my post re the IRA and their RCC bloodlines, so I will be clear.

The majority of the people in N. Ireland want to stay with Britain, it is only the scum IRA, aided by the RCC who want to level the score with Henry VIII that think otherwise.

What a pity back in the 1960s that the spineless Labour Party dithered about terminating the 247 (from memory) core of the then IRA and let the filth grow using the finance from the New York Irish scum who considered themselves “Irish American”, as if that meant anything.

If you ever go to the states the people you meet usually say something like “gee, are you English, do you come from London?” When out of politeness you ask about them they invariably say “I am an Italian American” and the comical “Pennsylvania Dutch” when they really mean German extract but don’t want to admit it or something similar using another European country as their origin. I only met one person who said she was American but then spoilt it by saying she could trace her lineage back to Plymouth Rock. Admittedly she was a very nicely spoken lady who was married to a multi-millionaire and I really couldn’t see why she added that until someone else told me that the people who came over on the Mayflower were like royalty. Great people the Americans but some of them are tortured by their own heritage.

98) I agree, it’s the people of the nations that are ultimately responsible for their states and ruling elite’s actions, and I will add they are also they are ultimately responsible for their own condition in time too.
But the only way to move forward, learning form it and not repeat the same mistakes is uncovering the truth which is very different from actually rewriting one owns history over the previous generation’s history, that has being done by each new government in Argentina. Argentina is not only being robbed of its money, future and dignity, it’s being robbed of its own history too. History and reality must be accepted such as it is. That is something I champion myself.

If you are going to the extremes of believing in Argentine cowardice only because Peron managed to create a undercover network covering Nazis from Nuremberg’s justice which was only open to Argentine general public 50 years later, what about Italy and its people that embraced fascism and behaved like opportunistic poodles trying to get some spoils of the Mediterranean behind Germany’s onslaught, but despite their advantages and all odds in favor they got hammered in N.Africa and S. E France and the Greeks fought them of like true lions back to Albania. When the allies invaded the Italian peninsula they surrounded like pussies and then formed a new government “declared themselves liberated” and declared war on Germany. So what would you describe them as? Why nobody ever sees this? Why is Argentina worse? Yet always the bad guys in WWII films are the Germans and Japanese, nations that at least were willing to defend their homelands until the very last man.

You are missing a couple of important points about theNorthern Ireland situation, namely that the majority population was being subjected to a campaign of indiscrimate terrorist violence by a minority of the minority of the republican movement, which had declined the option of using the ballot box instead.

To describe the response of the British government as “fascist” is to deprive the term of any meaning. Uk governments responded, perhaps clumsily, but in the way that any democratic Western European government would have responded. You might like to compare this response to that of other governments which found some themselves confronted by violent political movements, such as for example the Russians in Chechynya, or the Argentine military.

Fact remains that there were some indistinguishable commonalities between treatment of the Jewish community at the beginning of WW2 and the near pogrom policy which was found in northern Ireland.
The British govt's B-specials in northern Ireland 70's would have fit right in in 1940's European cities.

As I said previously “they were indeed comparable in *some* respects”

And I'll stand by that. I wont bore you with the list what those comparable traits are again (scan up the page if need be).

Monkey: I've been called a white cunt by black people and a black cunt by white people, so no, I don't believe racism is confined to any one race. Since I'm very fond of this miraculous aspect of the female anatomy I decided to take it as a compliment. It also confirmed by belief that people with racist beliefs have lousy eyesight since I have yet to encounter a ladypart that was anything other than pink.

In my experience very few people who make racist statements really believe the colour of their skin makes them superior to anyone else's. It's really about power - the awareness that in certain environments a person's ancestry makes them vulnerable to the majority's will. There are some people who are aware of that power - the power to get into people's heads and make them feel things they don't want to feel - and are willing to use it.

Some people don't even realise they're doing this, some people are very skilful at letting you know, with considerable subtlety, how much they enjoy having power over you and there are also some who just love telling you, to your face, how much they're getting off on it.

Stevie isn't anymore racist than you are, in my opinion - whatever you think that's worth. His negative comments about Britain are simply to wind you up and in that dubious achievement he seems to be succeeding.

Just like the Americans had a drive towards the West at the time Argentina moved towards the South to annex and conquer lands, that quite frankly if Roca hadn’t of done so, Chile, France or Britain would of eventually taken over Patagonia none the less.

“even now the UN has duly noted the ongoing failure of Argentina to address the needs of its inhabitants.” Duhh........ that doesn’t differentiate between Indians and non-Indian Argentines.
A lot of land theft and abuses are being committed against tribes in remote northern regions with a clear responsibility with the corrupt local authorities. But this happens easily because those people are mostly illiterate, and quite submissive.

RE; Bombay street.

A majority demographic enter a borough of a minority demographic, begin burning out the houses while the police are suddenly found missing from that one area, with members of a govt sanctioned police force later joining in with the rioters as a minority community's houses were burned out. Id put that down as a pogrom.

But very well. Let us begin.

www.thefreedictionary.com/pogrom

“An *organized*, often officially encouraged massacre or *persecution* of a minority group.”

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1969_Northern_Ireland_riots

Re: Bombay street, northern Ireland 1969. Scarman report, on British B-Specials.

”The report (scarman report) found that USC officers *had, on occasion, sided with loyalists mobs*.”

(this, an official British report at the time no doubt being...kind...with the wording)

So, Majority demographic centered police force joins in with rioters to burn out houses of minority community. While regular police force (again of single demographic) fail to prevent this.

Theres your *Organised*.

The near entirety of houses in the mostly Catholic street burned out by a Protestant mob supported by a Protestant community based police corps.

Theres your *persecution*.

Catholics being a minority demographic at the time.

So thats 'organized' 'persecution' and 'minority' covered,

Would you like to now withdraw that possibility of a conclusion you put forth ??

Or would you like to debate it with ....The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition . Updated 2009.

He hasn’t stopped me yet, but what I would reply to him or you is that Patagonia was an adjacent territory to the Argentine Confederacy. Indians would attack and raid the Argentine heartlands and this problem was becoming a more often and permanent menace towards the mid-late 1800s. Defensive policy like the Fosa de Alsina was expensive and did not solve the problem from its roots.
There is a difference with Britain or any other colonial power that conquered overseas lands not exclusively from a defensive reassurance policy but annexed and invaded nations, empires and territories that where far away beyond their borders that were no real threat to them at home. The only great European colonial power that would look like Argentina or the US and can alledge more or less the same rather than Spain, Britain, France, Portugal, Netherlands, etc would be the Czarist Russia in its drive towards the East

Despite your statements to the contrary, it was quite evident in 1945, as concentration camps were discovered and liberated, that atrocities had occurred.

The Nuremberg trials took place from late 1945 through 1946 and a great deal was known about Nazi war crimes and the perpetrators by that time.

You've no doubt unaware of this, but you've just demolished your own original argument. The British state neither sanctioned nor encouraged sectarian violence, it intervened for precisely the opposite reason, to stop it happening.

If you think this is comparable to the role of the state in the pogroms of Tsarist Russia or Nazi atrocities in the East, then you are clearly off your head.

You're obviously unaware of how policing is managed in the UK. The B Specials were not controlled by central government, but by the devolved government of Northern Ireland. When they were found to be acting in an unacceptably sectarian manner, central government stepped in and shut the shitheads down, thus providing you many years later with an example that refutes your own argument. Take the blinkers off and you might learn to see more clearly.

I've answered you on another thread. You answer is bullshit.

Self-defence don't make me laugh. You stole land the size of western Europe out of self defence...lol.

You are descended from Spanish genocidal colonialist...in the same way you use “you” when talking about the British Empire, I can use “you” when talking about the Spainish Emipire. You conquered a continent thousands of miles from home...the only difference between you...and the British Empire in Africa..is that you massacred sufficient numbers of the indigenous to become the majority.

So first off...YOU ARE A EUROPEAN COLONIALIST. Changing your name to Uruguay, Argentina or whatever doesnt change that.

However, even with this ludicrous myth that the Spanish Empire wasn't you, and the genocidal blood is not on your hands, you then continued to steal the remainder of the continent.

However, your indoctrination explains this that it was “self-defence”, (nasty Amerindians didnt appreciate your genocide) if you hadn't some else would, or the best yet...it doesn't count as colonialism if it's an adjacent territory.....fantastic...laugh my arse off....do you even believe it when you write it???

You live in an entire continent stolen from indigenous people who for the most part you massacred. We live on an island where we are the indigenous people. The Falklanders live on islands where there was no indigenous people. Somehow I can't see yours is the moral high ground...LOL

Anyhow...it doesn't matter...because everyone involved is dead, centuries ago. What matters is that Patagonia is part of Argentina because the people who live there today wish it to be so...it matters not that you slaughtered 100,000s to steal it.

Equally the Falklands are not part of Argentina because the people who live there find the idea abhorrent. It matters not that in 1883, 50 people who'd been there 6 weeks and had already raped and murdered were evicted.

Once Rosas was dead they went on raiding again. The Indians would sack, pillage take women and cattle down south. Alsina, Avellaneda’s Defence Minister policy was to create a vast trench from Bahia Blanca in the tip of BsAs Province covering all the way to Southern Cordoba. The Zanja de Alsina also had defensive forts and watchtowers along the border. However it was inefficient in stopping the raids.

Roca after Alsina died in 1877, decided to solve the problem from its roots. Of course there was neither Geneva Convention nor UN at that time, and you can argue that the response was disproportionate but it was a counterstrike none the less. Of course there were abuses against the Indians before 1877, but history is not black and white as you put it. Roca like him or not had a case more justified than for example the Chileans and even more so than the British, French eventually taking over Patagonia.

So what you appear to be saying....and I will repeat it back to you so you understand how utterly utterly ludicrous it is.

Had Britain attacked one part of Africa, and called it a country...although none of the indigenous people recognised any of it's borders....then all those British attackers wiped out the indigenous in that country...and then decided not to call themselves British anymore...and call themselves New Africans.

Then if any of the remaining indigenous people had the nerve to be a tad upset about the massacre of their countrymen...the new Africans (not British) would have been perfectly within their rights to genocidally slaughter all the remaining folk in Africa...because its a) self defence b) on the same continent c) someone else might have done it

Oh, we wouldn't have “got them all” so we will claim that we have all intermingled and a big happy family. But they have to speak our language and follow our laws.

Spain were the invaders it's Spain and Europes fault.

The Argentines weren't Spanish and certainly weren't colonialists, they are a peaceful South American people who were first being dominated by the nasty Spanish and then being attacked by pesky Indians.

They are in no way descendants from the conquistadors and in no way ever stole Indian land nor massacred any of them.

However they have ended up with all the land and the Indians are a tiny minority...this is just luck.

The Falklanders however are terrible colonialist pirates who usurped their land from the indigenous Argentines. The Argentines had arrived on the Falklands centuries before Columbus discovered the Americas and had at least 1 billion civilians on the islands when they were all forced to leave on the Schooner Sarandi. None of the billion had ever murdered or raped anyone at all.

I know about the immigration in Argentina (and El blanqueamiento).

The “shock” was not as severe as you paint it. Between 1857 and 1930 Argentina received a net immigration (immigrants - emigrants) of app 3.7 million, thus app 60% of the entire population increase (app 6.2 mio.) in the period was by immigration. About 46% were Italian and 32% Spanish. In 1869 the population was app 1.9 mio., in 1914 app 8.1 mio. By 1914 app 30% of the population was foreign born [1].
- but as you write, the genocide was over in 1880, so what is the relevance?

The same goes for British immigration (your link), 75 000 out of 3 500 000 or 1 (one) in 47 - what is the relevance?

You are totally confused.

You are suggesting that by 1880 the Argentines where the native people of South America because they'd been there 300 years, and that the Amerindians were wrong to be attacking them and deserved to have the remainder of their homeland stolen.

You (on the other thread) then suggest British colonial atrocities in India, Australia and Africa...but by YOUR MEASURE and YOUR HYPOCRISY these weren't British at all.

All Britain needed to do was call itself “Argent-India” and they would have been perfectly within its rights to have wiped out Gandhi and the billion Indians...as it would have been conquest.

All Britain would have needed to do was call itself “Argent-afrika” and they would have been morally acceptable to have wiped it all of black Africa as those nasty Zulu kept attacking us...some of Africa was sparsely populated after all.

The absolute cheek of Ho Chi Minh attacking the French in Vietnam, didn't he know they'd been there for centuries,,,they should have wiped him out and carried on in to Malaysia and Thailand.

And these countries had been home to sophisticated, populous and established empires like the Incas and Aztecs, but were massacred brutally by the Spaniards. The difference is clearly in the immigration that followed into Argenitina and Uruguay while, Peru, Bolivia and Mexico hadn’t any European immigration in significant proportions.

Problem is, that two of the most important assumptions underlying the Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium are:

1. mating is random.

2. there is no migration.

Mating would only be random, if indigenous men mated with immigrated women app as often as immigrated men mated with indigenous women. If there hadn't been any indigenous men at all, the mtDNA would still show app 55% indigenous ancestors.

Migration inherently include nonrandom mating, in most cases rendering the Hardy–Weinberg proportions invalid.

The question to ask is: What is the proportion of indigenous Y-chromosomes to immigrant Y-chromosomes?

The situation in e.g. Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, were very different, as these countries had established states and/or large indigenous populations and they were not pestered with people like Avellaneda, Julio Argentino Roca, Sarmiento, etc., hellbent on 'El blanqueamiento', the extermination of inferior races.

Article 2 of the United Nations 'Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide' [1] defines:
”genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;

(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

whic, according to Argentine newspapers, reports and statement from Argentine politicians, was exactly what was the goal of 'Conquista del Desierto'.

Después el equipo buscó en un área determinada de las mitocondrias, también en una región que se mantiene inalterable y que se identifica como HVR I. El resultado fue el esperado: la mayoría de la muestra tenía ascendente materno no amerindio. Es decir, había mayoritariamente madres europeas (53,3%).

Naff said, so the majority of crossings was by European mothers with Indian fathers and not the opposite as you state…
Now don’t forget the Indians would take women to be raped in the tolderias

But besides your whole argument (God knows what your argument is) just doesn’t hold water
Let’s be very generous towards your theory, as you claim that half of Argentina’s great, great grandmothers have being raped, let’s suppose this is true, so this means you had a population that received a “migration” (genetically speaking of course), half the population of locals were killed (the males) and the remaining females whatever their number were raped. So the next generation would have been 100% hybrid Euro-Amerindian (mestizos) that would have broken the Hardy Weinberg equilibrium of the first population, but the contradiction is that genocide did not occur as a general concept as the women were not entirely exterminated (this is what you are already accepting when you explain (wrongly) that 56% of Argentines have Indian ancestry by rape). We are talking about 30.000 people in the more generous scenario possible in Patagonia. You had millions of Europeans arriving from 1880 onwards to a country that was already hybrid (?) !!! I’m sorry but your whole argument is bonkers

195) Look many tribes in the Northern provinces like Formosa, Salta the local governments provincial and local are very corrupt and will sell away land to any rich landowners that want to knock over the forests and plant soybean. What also occurs is that governor Gildo Insfran (FPV) abuses the Indians by sending his thugs to the communities on election day to take their passports (DNI) and have his own people vote for him on the same day. Also the local municipalities discipline the tribes by retaining the monthly welfare that belongs to the Indians. However most of these people are still illiterate and have never made their ownership titles of the lands. So they don’t have land titles, however there is no deliberate plan from the Argentine National State to land theft the amerindian natives. I’m blonde and blue eyes that doesn’t make any difference, last year my neighbor tried to fence over my property to his and he would of gotten away with it if I didn’t have the titles and I wasnt able to read and write.

I think what we should do is send to jail all these feudal governors of these provinces, have a campaing to give ownership titles to the Indians, educate them and have the Ley de Bosques (26.331) respected and applied as it should be.
I disagree with promoting ever more politically correct UN inspired bonker laws to benefit Indians as such; we should all be equal to the law. I don’t want to adopt the bad aspects of neo fascist, politically correct anti-white Europe.

Grow up!

”thus app 60% of the entire population increase in the period was by immigration“

Do you think the european women were sterile?

CD:”so the majority of crossings was by European mothers with Indian fathers and not the opposite as you state… “

Complete bosh. This is elementary genetics.

Woman gets 3 daughters. Each daughter gets 3 daughters = 9, who gets 3 daughters = 27, who gets 3 daughters = 81, who gets 3 daughters = 273. You'll find mtDNA in all of the 273 in the last generation.

CD:”Let’s be very generous towards your theory,“

Cheap trick.

It is not my theory, I follow a number of Argentine historians and social scientists, who are not afraid to do away with the myth.

”Las memorias del comandante Prado dicen claramente que el ataque a las tolderías es para caerles encima a las mujeres y niños que quedaron cuando los hombres no estaban. Estaba planificado así para llevarse el botín, sobre todo el ganado, y las familias porque ésa era la operación que iba a llevar a los indios a rendirse.“

”The memoirs of commandant Prado clearly say that the purpose of the attacks on the camps is to get on the women and children left behind when the men were away. It was planned to get the spoils, especially cattle, and families because that was the operation that was to take the Indians to surrender.“

”Es genocidio cuando se puede establecer la intencionalidad de destruir a un pueblo. Otra característica es impedir la reproducción de ese grupo y también el robo de niños, cuando son secuestrados y entregados a familias de grupos dominantes, y se les reemplaza los nombres, porque así se atenta contra la continuidad de ese pueblo porque se le roba la memoria.”

The interesting question is, as previously written: what is the proportion of indigenous Y-chromosomes to immigrant Y-chromosomes?

“Its says clearly most of the mothers are European”
Big surprise, when 60% (sixty percent) of the population descend from immigrants, almost all of them from Europe.

What about the malones?

The indigenous warriers attacked the scundrels who had stolen their land - have you completely and conveniently forgotten the link, you yourself provided, to the expansion of the Buenos Aires province?

How did this expansion take place, if not into indigenous land?

Malones were the Amerindians' answer and revenge.

If you had read your own link to “El ultimo Malón”, you would have known that it was on 16 de marzo de 1876, two years before Roca's murderous campaign.

You told me your personal version of the expnsion of Buenos Aires. I go with Argentine historians and social sciences scholars, who have a very different version, based on research in Arhentina's national archives.

How do you explain the expansion without an expansion into indigenous land?

The are not Indians (a shocking racist designation), Indians live in India. These people are indigenous or aborigin to South America, or Amerindians.

Legally, the indigenous peoples have specific constitutional rights at federal level and also in a number of provincial states.

In the south of the country, in Río Negro Province, popular dissent forced the previous government to pass a law banning open-cast mining but, in January 2012, the new governor, from the same political party as the president, overturned the decision and subsequently authorised such mining.

There are more than 1,000 exploration permits in Chubut Province, despite Provincial Law 5001 which bans open-cast mining and the use of
cyanide. A symbolic case in this regard is the “Proyecto Navidad”. ... The company entered the indigenous territory and desecrated a 12,00-year-old aboriginal cemetery located right in the very heart of the future mining zone.

There is a constant failure to respect the National Constitution during 2011, along with the international treaties ... signed by Argentina.

Emergency Law 26160 on Indigenous Community Ownership, ... suspends evictions from the ancestral territories ... but, in practice, it has been ignored as dozens of communities have been evicted ... due to the provincial governments’ opposition and the national government’s apathy.

Throughout the country, calls for rights to be respected are answered with court cases and repressive action.

No reason to quote more from this sorry document, read it thoroughly.

I don’t know who are these people you are talking about historians and social scientists. I tell you the Ranqueles were excellent riders and launched attacks form far away in Indian controlled territory. When you are nomadic you don’t establish yourself permanently in one place, much less right next door to your enemy, you move from one place to the other.

Fine, but that is neither racism nor apartheid nor genocide or whatever you may call it, it’s just corruption and its endemic here. Indians are not the only ones to suffer it.

- and precisely how do you know that?

They were hard pressed because their living conditions were reduced every day by immigrant settlers - and that is precisely what the maps of the expansion of Buenos Aires and Santa Fe show us.

“the Indians were nomadic”

Precisely, and like elsewhere in the world, the Argentine farmers decided they had the right to steal land from nomades, little by little leaving the nomades nowhere to wander and live.

BTW: As part of the Argentina mythomania, I find it hilarious that some small p?sspot village dictator in a country with slightly more than half a million inhabitants was called “El Director Supremo de las provincias Unidas de Sud América” (The Supreme Director of the United Provinces of South America) - they seem to have forgotten “Internaciónal” in the title :-D.
