Defend Peter Handke

Distinguished Austrian novelist, playwright, poet and essayist Peter Handke has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature along with Polish author Olga Tokarczuk.

Western news sources are uniformly reporting on this by attacking and highlighting others’ attacks on the recipient in reference to his opposition to U.S. and NATO policies in the Balkans over the past 28 years.

Handke’s alleged “outrages” and “crimes” consist of his speaking out against the forcible break-up of former Yugoslavia, NATO’s military campaigns against the Bosnian Serb Republic and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, NATO expansion through the Balkans and Eastern Europe as a whole and, perhaps especially, to the one-sided demonization of ethnic Serbs in the former Yugoslavia.

No sooner was his award announced than the full force of the American and European opinion-making juggernaut was activated against him: not as a writer but as a person.

It seems only a matter of days, if not hours, before his award is revoked. Please do what you can to defend Handke the writer and the principle of a person of letters’ right, indeed responsibility, to speak the truth as he discovers it.

A freedom as though I were innocent
As a writer you are born as a guilty person

    Absolutely disgusting. The whole destructive 78 days of attacks on Serbia and the refusal even to allow Russia’s input when the atrocious behavior was planned, and the continued NATO interference to destroy any hopes of peace deserve to be condemned by everyone, and NATO’s existence questioned constantly.

    Thank you for pointing this out!

    The destruction of Yugoslavia and Libya were the most outrageous crimes of the NATO alliance. Handke was one of the few sensitive and well informed people to unmask the dishonesty and cynicism of political leaders and Western media. Yugoslavia and Libya were military aggressions under the pretext of humanitarian concerns (R2P — the Responsibility to Protect doctrine).

    The perpetrators and the cheerleaders of these crimes against humanity have not payed for their misdeeds until now and maybe never will, leaving the people who don’t fall for the mass media propaganda onslaught and are able to look behind the curtain only the option to retreat into inner emigration. There’s still hope that the US/NATO empire unravels due to inherent contradictions.
