JEWISH-ISRAEL TAKEOVER OF GERMANY IN 1945 AND LEGALISATION OF PROSTITUTION IN 2002

JEWISH-ISRAEL TAKEOVER OF GERMANY IN 1945 AND LEGALISATION OF PROSTITUTION IN 2002 AND THEY DARE SAY NATIONAL SOCIALISM WAS EVIL!

"If you don’t take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits"

A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services’’ at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year.

Prostitution was legalised in Germany just over two years ago and brothel owners - who must pay tax and employee health insurance - were granted access to official databases of jobseekers.

The waitress, an unemployed information technology professional, had said that she was willing to work in a bar at night and had worked in a cafe.
She received a letter from the job centre telling her that an employer was interested in her "profile’’ and that she should ring them. Only on doing so did the woman, who has not been identified for legal reasons, realise that she was calling a brothel.

Under Germany’s welfare reforms, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take an available job - including in the sex industry - or lose her unemployment benefit. Last month German unemployment rose for the 11th consecutive month to 4,5 million, taking the number out of work to its highest since reunification in 1990.

The government had considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars. As a result, job centres must treat employers looking for a prostitute in the same way as those looking for a dental nurse.

When the waitress looked into suing the job centre, she found out that it had not broken the law. Job centres that refuse to penalise people who turn down a job by cutting their benefits face legal action from the potential employer.

"There is now nothing in the law to stop women from being sent into the sex industry," said Merchthild Garweg, a lawyer from Hamburg who specialises in such cases. "The new regulations say that working in the sex industry is not immoral any more, and so jobs cannot be turned down without a risk to benefits."

Miss Garweg said that women who had worked in call centres had been offered jobs on telephone sex lines. At one job centre in the city of Gotha, a 23-year-old woman was told that she had to attend an interview as a "nude model", and should report back on the meeting. Employers in the sex industry can also advertise in job centres, a move that came into force this month. A job centre that refuses to accept the advertisement can be sued.

Tatiana Ulyanova, who owns a brothel in central Berlin, has been searching the online database of her local job centre for recruits.

"Why shouldn’t I look for employees through the job centre when I pay my taxes just like anybody else ?" said Miss Ulyanova.

Ulrich Kueperkoch wanted to open a brothel in Goerlitz, in former East Germany, but his local job centre withdrew his advertisement for 12 prostitutes, saying it would be impossible to find them.

Mr Kueperkoch said that he was confident of demand for a brothel in the area and planned to take a claim for compensation to the highest court. Prostitution was legalised in Germany in 2002 because the government believed that this would help to combat trafficking in women and cut links to organised crime.
Miss Garweg believes that pressure on job centres to meet employment targets will soon result in them using their powers to cut the benefits of women who refuse jobs providing sexual services.

"They are already prepared to push women into jobs related to sexual services, but which don’t count as prostitution », she said.

"Now that prostitution is no longer considered by the law to be immoral, there is really nothing but the goodwill of the job centres to stop them from pushing women into jobs they don’t want to do."

Titre : The need for a public debate on prostitution and its social consequences
Résumé : Sisyphe website delivers cutting edge analysis of women’s condition and of other important issues, notably prostitution.
The current movement to decriminalize prostitution has its roots in the general liberalization of the economy and objectively serves its interests. We also hear increasingly, at the United Nations or in the media, statements in which the sex trade is presented as an alternative to economic problems if not even an avenue for development. The interests involved are substantial and it is easy to assume that all resources, whether political or economic or those of the media, will be used to promote the decriminalization of "sex work" and the highly profitable commodification of women. Is it necessary to pass legislation that binds the whole of society to the individual demands of a minority that portrays prostitution as a freely made lifestyle choice ? Instead, when an international study has shown that 92% of prostituted women would leave the trade if they could, should we not be questioning such assertions ?
A substantial body of research shows that the majority of prostituted women are on average recruited at the age of about 14, after being made vulnerable by the violence in their surroundings, poverty, unemployment or drugs. Is it realistic to assume that at the age of 18, a miracle will occur that suddenly releases them from all constraints ? As between juvenile and adult prostitution, there is also a continuum between local prostitution and international trafficking in women for the purpose of prostitution. Criminal gangs import and export women for prostitution in order constantly to offer new women to their clients and maximize their profits.
This article attempts to highlight the essential role played by the client in the perpetuation of prostitution and to show, on the basis of various pieces of research, that a world without prostitution is possible, just as it was possible to abolish slavery and apartheid.

Belarus in WWII through German military photos

by Islander on April 9, 2008

I tried to start writing this post couple of times and every time I ended up looking at the blinking cursor and unable to collect my thoughts. Sometimes pictures can tell the story better than words and this is why we simply put here WWII military photos made by German soldiers in Belarus during the WWII. Full credit goes to tol.blogs.org and Belarusian photo-community photo_polygon. Many thanks for sharing it.

Miley Cyrus receives an open letter from Sinead O'Connor saying she'll 'end up in rehab' and urging her not to be made into a 'prostitute'


By | 110% pop – 14 hours ago

As if this saga couldn't get any more dramatic, Sinead O'Connor gets involved.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer has sent an open letter to Miley Cyrus, urging her not to be made into a 'prostitute' by the music business.

Sinead O'Connor, whose Nothing Compares 2 U video inspired Miley Cyrus, has written an open letter to the sing …


Miley Cyrus previously revealed her inspiration for the Wrecking Ball video was Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares …

Warning her that getting naked is not what she's made famous for and that it will ruin her career, Sinead tells Miley to focus on her music.

Referring to the Wrecking Ball video - which Miley previously claimed she took inspiration from Sinead for - writes: "I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way 'cool' to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos.

"It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether it’s the music business or yourself doing the pimping."

She goes on to say Miley is foolish if she thinks she's being empowered by getting naked and making a scene, instead warning her that she'll end up in rehab if she's not careful.

Sinead added: "The music business doesn’t give a s*** about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it's what YOU wanted... and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, 'they' will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.

"None of the men oggling you give a s*** about you either, do not be fooled. Many’s the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesn’t mean they give a f*** about you.

"All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you don’t give much of a f*** about yourself, and when you employ people who give the impression they don’t give much of a f*** about you either.

"No one who cares about you could support your being pimped... and that includes you yourself."



The 46-year-old wrote the letter after various requests from newspapers to give comment on Miley's video

The singer is known for kicking back at the media and keeping her private life separate after a tumultuous few years in the 1990s following her quick rise to fame.

Sinead recently revealed she owes herself an apology for allowing the industry to get the better of her adding: "[I would say sorry] To myself, for telling myself I was a piece of s**t for so many years, when, in fact, I'm wonderful."

Miley is yet to respond to the letter, instead tweeting a picture of herself topless on Instagram earlier this morning.




Sinead's letter in full:

Dear Miley,
I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today I’ve been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your “Wrecking Ball” video was designed to be similar to the one for “Nothing Compares” … So this is what I need to say … And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love.

I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way “cool” to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether it’s the music business or yourself doing the pimping.

Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.
I am happy to hear I am somewhat of a role model for you and I hope that because of that you will pay close attention to what I am telling you.

The music business doesn’t give a sh– about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think its what YOU wanted.. and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, “they” will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.

None of the men oggling you give a sh– about you either, do not be fooled. Many’s the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesn’t mean they give a f— about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you don’t give much of a f— about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they don’t give much of a f— about you either. No one who cares about you could support your being pimped.. and that includes you yourself.

Yes, I’m suggesting you don’t care for yourself. That has to change. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and its associated media.

You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal. The world of showbiz doesn’t see things that way, they like things to be seen the other way, whether they are magazines who want you on their cover, or whatever.. Don’t be under any illusions.. ALL of them want you because they’re making money off your youth and your beauty.. which they could not do except for the fact your youth makes you blind to the evils of show business. If you have an innocent heart you can’t recognise those who do not.

I repeat, you have enough talent that you don’t need to let the music business make a prostitute of you. You shouldn’t let them make a fool of you either. Don’t think for a moment that any of them give a flying f— about you. They’re there for the money.. we’re there for the music. It has always been that way and it will always be that way. The sooner a young lady gets to know that, the sooner she can be REALLY in control.
You also said in Rolling Stone that your look is based on mine.

The look I chose, I chose on purpose at a time when my record company were encouraging me to do what you have done. I felt I would rather be judged on my talent and not my looks. I am happy that I made that choice, not least because I do not find myself on the proverbial rag heap now that I am almost 47 yrs of age.. which unfortunately many female artists who have based their image around their sexuality, end up on when they reach middle age.

Real empowerment of yourself as a woman would be to in future refuse to exploit your body or your sexuality in order for men to make money from you. I needn’t even ask the question.. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that men are making more money than you are from you getting naked. It’s really not at all cool. And it’s sending dangerous signals to other young women.

Please in future say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself. Your body is for you and your boyfriend. It isn’t for every spunk-spewing dirtbag on the net, or every greedy record company executive to buy his mistresses diamonds with.

As for the shedding of the Hannah Montana image.. whoever is telling you getting naked is the way to do that does absolutely NOT respect your talent, or you as a young lady. Your records are good enough for you not to need any shedding of Hannah Montana. She’s waaaaaaay gone by now.. Not because you got naked but because you make great records.

Whether we like it or not, us females in the industry are role models and as such we have to be extremely careful what messages we send to other women. The message you keep sending is that it’s somehow cool to be prostituted.. it’s so not cool Miley.. it’s dangerous.

Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. we aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers.. that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career.

Kindly fire any motherf—er who hasn’t expressed alarm, because they don’t care about you.

Sinead O'Connor hits back at Miley Cyrus in another open letter after she mocks her breakdown comparing her with Amanda Bynes


By | the juice – 2 hours 13 minutes ago
This looks to be another celebrity feud which is set to run and run.

Miley Cyrus and Sinead O'Connor's feud looks set to run and run. Copyright [WENN] Sinead O'Connor has hit back at Miley Cyrus in another open letter after the popstar poked fun at Sinead's mental health, comparing her to Amanda Bynes.

Miley's offensive tweets came on the same day as Sinead wrote an open letter to her, urging Miley to tone down her sexualised image.

Miley, 20, then took to Twitter in response but rather than posting a considered message, she mocked Sinead's now infamous breakdown.

The singer posted a screengrab of Sinead's tweets alongside the caption: "Before Amanda Bynes there was..."

It is believed the 48-year-old singer, best known for her 1990 hit 'Nothing Compares 2 U', checked into a hotel in Irish capital Dublin before writing the disturbing message.
Police later confirmed she had been found and was given medical assistance. It is understood she was admitted to a Dublin hospital last night.

In her worrying Facebook message, the mother-of-four wrote: 'There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear.'
O'Connor, who underwent a hysterectomy in August, said she had been 'howling crying for weeks' and 'the last two nights finished me off'.
She went on: 'I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I'm at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name.
'If I wasn't posting this, my kids and family wouldn't even find out. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they'd never have known. 
'I'm such a rotten horrible mother and person, that I've been alone. Howling crying for weeks.'  
Fans posted more than 1,000 messages of support within an hour of the posting appearing on the musicians' page urging her to 'keep fighting'.

Her friend and fellow singer Mary Coughlan said the singer had threatened to take an overdose a week earlier.
Ms Coughlan said O'Connor contacted her yesterday morning and told her to tell her family she was planning an overdose, the Irish Sun reported. 
A series of strange messages on the singer's official Facebook post started yesterday when she revealed she was quitting the music industry.
She explained: 'I need a new home. And a new job. A new life ... Music is over for me. Music did this. It rendered me invisible. Murdered my soul. I'm never going back to music.'
She added: '[I have] lost everything, my job, my home, my sons, my womb, my eldest kids, my identity. I cannot eat Christmas dinner with these people ever again. 
[I have been] pushed into a corner that somehow hasn't killed me yet. I have no family. No home. No job.'

SINGER'S COLOURFUL CAREER

Since bursting on to the scene in 1990 with hit record 'Nothing Compares 2 U', O'Connor has courted controversy over issues unrelated to her musical career.
In 1992 she famously tore up a photograph of Pope John Paul II live on US television.
She was ordained as a priest in 1999 by a breakaway church in Lourdes, which is not recognised by the traditional Catholic Church. 
In 2010, she called for Catholics to boycott Mass until there was a full investigation into the Vatican's role in the issue of child abuse.
Three years later, she launched a scathing attack on Simon Cowell and the X Factor, accusing him of ruining the industry.
Earlier this year, she hit the headlines when she blasted Kim Kardashian's raunchy Rolling Stone magazine cover which saw her baring her breasts in a racy sailor's outfit. 
She was forced to cancel a string of concerts in July on doctors' orders. 
Last year she said the mentally ill were treated 'like dirt' and she later threatened to sue popstar Miley Cyrus over tweets O'Connor thought mocked those with mental illness.
Ms O'Connor achieved worldwide fame in 1990 with the song 'Nothing Compares 2 U', written by Prince.   
She was married to record producer John Reynolds and had a child Jake in 1987, then married British journalist Nick Sommerlad from 2001-2004, and musician Steve Cooney in 2010 - which ended less than a year later.
She also had a daughter, Roisin, with writer John Waters, then another boy, Shane, fathered by Irish folk instrumentalist Donal Lunny.
Then, following a year-long relationship with American surgeon and businessman Frank Bonadio, she had a son, Yeshua.
She married drug counsellor Barry Herridge in 2011, but split 16 days later. They then remarried.
