Lebanon: The Story of ‘Martyr’ Ahmad Qasir (أحمد قصير) [1963-1982]

In his village language, the martyr’s father sums up Ahmad’s vision of the Zionists by saying, “What tried to take away from his mind – he would not let them take!” Ahmad was always in the Resistance even as a boy – and he was martyred at the age of 18 only – in an operation in which he killed more than 140 Zionist Officers and Soldiers! He truly carried the tendency of the Resistance since his childhood, says his father. In his day, the martyr had a vegetable store that he ran, but he refused to sell to the Israelis. Whenever they came to the shop, Ahmad quickly closed the door, saying: “We do not sell to the Israelis.” That young man who astonished the world with his operation, and who plunged the Zionists into mourning for its dead, has always fought battles against the Occupation Forces in his town, as the operations at that time were almost daily.

UK: Soviet War Grave – Private V. Duschin [Владимир Душин] (1916-1945) – Soviet Forces – Shaftsbury Borough Cemetery, Dorset (Visited 31.5.2022)

There is an added complication involving the fact that Guys Marsh Military Hospital also treated primarily British, American and Soviet POWs who had been held by the Imperial Japanese and who had suffered terrible psychological and physical abuse! It is believed that prior to the Soviet Union declaring war on Imperial Japan on August 9th, 1945 – the Nazi Germans would ship tens of thousands of Soviet POWs to Japanese-occupied Northeast China – where they were worked to death or used for military and medical experiments. As V. Duschin was ‘liberated’, rescued, brought to England and had died at least six-months prior to the Soviet ‘liberation’ of Northeast China (and the eventual surrender of Imperial Japan on September 3rd, 1945). However, V Duschin is recorded as being rescued by the British Army during its drive across Northwest Europe – which must have been around December 1944 – January 1945, but the question remains ‘where’? There were hundreds of sub-camps of various sizes that the Nazi Germans ‘liquidated’ (that is ‘massacred’) as the Allies approached and it could be that V Duschin had been originally moved into Western Europe to work before his health failed. More research is required.

DPR: German Communist Party Protests Berlin ‘Ban’ on Soviet Red Flag! (24.5.2022)

The GKP filed an urgent Appeal against this obvious attack upon the International Working-Class – but this Appeal was ‘Denied’ when heard by the Administrative Court of Berlin and the Higher Administrative Court. The reasons given for these decisions were purely arbitrary and outrageous! The Berlin Authorities declared the Soviet Red Flag (which carries a ‘Hammer and Sickle’) to be a ‘fascist’ symbol (but would not permit a ‘discussion’ as to WHY they thought this) – and declared the Soviet Red Army as being a vehicle for tyranny, oppression and persecution (no discussion was allowed explaining the Red Army ‘Liberation’ of the Nazi German Death Camps)! As the ‘modern’ Russian Army still carries this Red Flag – the Berlin Courts Ruled – this flag can no longer be carried (or displayed) ‘legally’ in public!
