This is what Azeri trolls posting and liking on internet

The call for genocide is very similar to those before in #Rwanda right before the mass killings started.

The first step towards a genocide is dehumanizing the victims. The language used by Azeri media and activists clearly of such behavior

This is a danger that should not be taken lightly.

(fin XIXe jusqu'à la fin de la première guerre mondiale où les "possessions" allemandes seront partagées entre le Royaume Uni, la France et la Belgique..)

Il en est de même pour le swahili avec le mot "hela" (même sens, même origine).

Curiosité linguistique:
En Kirundi (et également en Kinyarwanda, les deux langues étant très proches) l'une des façons de dire "argent" dans le sens de "monnaie" est "ihera" (pluriel : amahera)

Ce mot vient de l'allemand "heller" qui était une pièce de monnaie en vigueur à l'époque de la colonisation allemande en Afrique ...

@HampshireKarin @Lazarou @TJ1001 Agree, overall the plan is far better than the #Rwanda nonsense and barges
But its a very, very low bar

Criminals should be treated as criminals
And victims treated as victims

Human rights lawyer #Starmer knows that - but cant resist a " tough" image and feeding the racists

In fact, what was proposed, is only about the proceeds of crime, so nothing unusual - but the terrorist stuff was just too tempting

In Rwanda, das zu den 20 ärmsten Ländern der Welt gehört, stehen die Sponsorings schon lange in der Kritik. Sie machen mittlerweile einen erheblichen Teil des Staatsbudget aus, wurden aber nie vom Parlament debattiert oder beschlossen. Es sind Alleingänge Kagames. Finanziell ist der Deal natürlich eine Farce. Anders als #Qatar hat #Rwanda ja gar kein Geld.

Zitat Sascha Düerkop (Twitter):

Nach Kritik am #Qatar-Sponsoring wählt der #FCB einen Sponsor mit noch schlechterer Menschenrechtslage.

Das Sponsoring von #Arsenal, #PSG und jetzt den Bayern ist ein Privatprojekt von Autokrat Kagame, der seit Jahren damit angibt Kritiker weltweit umbringen zu lassen.

Offiziell ist die Idee, dass die Sponsorings den Tourismus nach #Rwanda stärken soll. Bislang ist das nicht passiert. Die staatl. Airline überlebt, weil Kagame sie finanziell am Leben hält.

Over the past year and a half, Rwandan troops have conducted military operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo and engaged in direct combat with the Congolese military and armed groups. According to the United Nations and human rights groups Rwandan troops have actively supported the March 23 Movement, M23, a Congolese armed group with longstanding ties to the Rwandan government.

So each #migrant (I refuse the term 'illegal migrant') will be costing us £63,000 to transfer out of the country;
