Moscow’s Gold: Russian Corruption in the UK

a lovely quote:

“there is a view that basically we—the UK—are suckers, and that you can take advantage of all the freedoms and legal protections you have here while stealing at home. So you steal in a place of legal nihilism and you offshore in a place of legal solidity”

Robert Fisk graaft wat dieper in de grabbelton die geschiedenis heet:

In the cases of two separate holocausts, Israel and Poland find it difficult to acknowledge the facts of history

While Poland has decided to outlaw any claims that their countrymen participated in the extermination of the Jews, Israel continues to ignore the Armenian genocide

http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/holocaust-israel-poland-history-difficult-acknowledge-netanyahu-jewish-polish-government-a8212071.html

Fisk had er natuurlijk ook de Duitsers nog wat uitgebreider bij kunnen halen:
