SUMMARY IN ENGLISH
CONTRA # 4 2003
The people of Kosova were saved from Pierre Schori!
by Tommy Hansson
The UN were to appoint a high representative in Kosova. One of the candidates
was the Swedish ambassador to the UN, Pierre Schori, seemingly supported
by UN Secretary General Koffi Annan. There was however one problem, the
United States disapproved. After a few weeks Pierre Schori withdraw his
candidacy claiming that it "stinked of mccarthyism in this appointment".
The US administration stated that they were not interested in cooperating
with a person who has been anti-US in his attitude all the time since
Contra has now and then scrutinized the activities of Mr Schori, and
hopefully we have somewhat contributed to the failure of Mr Schori. The
people of Kosova is to congratulate.
The appointed high representative was former conservative Finnish prime
minister Harri Holkeri.
The evil of national socialism
by Tommy Hansson
To understand how a primitive racist ideology like national socialism
could conquer Germany, with its outstanding cultural heritage, we have
to go back to the mid-19th century. The German historian and philosopher
Constantin Frantz analyzed Germany in general and Prussia in detail. According
to Swedish philosopher Tage Lindbom Frantz was one of the foremost political
thinkers of the 19th century. "He saw a mortal danger in the emergence
of a German nationalist great power philosophy. He looked at the cchauvinism
growing after 1866, and still more after the Franco-German war of 1870-71.
The Prussian military power is the emergence of a macchiavellic military

Seven years in labour camp for Sinjavsky
by Tommy Hansson
Andrei Sinjavsky was an ambitious author and a knowledgable literary
scientist, But it is not his literary career that is remembered, but his
fight against Soviet totalitarianism. He became world famous in connection
with his arrest in 1965.
Svenska Dagbladet – a leftist yellow sheet?
In the previous issue of Contra we forwarded a certain criticism against
what is called the leading Conservative newspaper in Sweden, Svenska Dagbladet,
because of its anti-US tendency in its reporting on the Iraq war. In this
issue we have followed the month of June in Svenska Dagbladet. Unfortunately
this study shows that it is not only the foreign pages that have a leftist
bias, it can be seen in most sections, with the leader pages as the only
esxception. On page 21 we give a sample of front pages of Svenska Dagbladet
during the Iraq war. Baghdad Bob couldn't have done it better!
The robber and the anarchist left
by Karl-Göran Bottwyk
July 2 2003 Fredrik Göransson, and two fellow criminals, tried to
rob an armoured money transport in the Swedish province of Blekinge. The
police were following the robbers as they had got advance information
and they were able to act rapidly, shooting Göransson to death. The
other two were chased, escaped, but gave up a couple of days later. The
claim that they are not guilty to the robbery, but police seem to have
lots of evidence against them.
Two of the robbers, among them Fredrik Göransson, were editors of
"Kåkbladet" ("Con News") which was distributed
throughout the country. Other editors included a man who was sentenced
two two and a half years in prison after the anarchist anti-EU riots in
Gothenburg 2001. The "Con News" uses the same P O Box as the
anarchist magazine "Brand" and the late Mr Göranssons girl
friend is the editor of that magaxzine.
