'Enjoy your shameful moment of glory': anger as far-right German politician 'dances' at Holocaust memorial

A far-right German party member was reprimanded by Israel’s ambassador to Berlin for showing up at a dance at a Holocaust memorial in the capital.

Ambassador Ron Prosor said Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician Holger Winterstein “dishonours him and his party”.

“Enjoy your shameful moment of glory, because your name will soon be forgotten. The sanctified souls immortalized on the memorial will never be forgotten,” he said.

Winterstein was photographed posing with outstretched arms on one of the stone slabs that form a memorial in Berlin to more than 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II.

In a social media post accompanying the image, he wrote: “The zeitgeist is only a momentary phenomenon,” a clear allusion to his party’s opposition to the mainstream German view of remorse for the shameful parts of the past.

German media reported that the photo was taken after a protest against the government’s energy policy by the AfD on Saturday.

The party, known by its German acronym AfD, said it would take action against Winterstein for his “grossly disrespectful behavior”.

When asked about the incident by German broadcaster MDR, Winterstein said, “It was very stupid of me,” but added that he thought the photo was just noise because he was in the AfD.

Winterstein is an adviser in Thuringia, a state in the center of Germany that received a strong vote from the AfD in the last election.

State party leader Bjorn Höcke called the Holocaust memorial a “monument of shame” in 2017 and called on Germany to “turn 180 degrees” on how it remembers its past.

The party court at the time rejected an attempt to expel him.

Party members have been banned indefinitely from Holocaust memorial services at the Buchenwald concentration camp in Thuringia, according to local reports, as their position “simplifies” the story.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
