    Sudeten Germans Re-Put Europe’s Future Under Threat

    In 71 years after the Sudeten question and the Munich conspiracy, the Sudeten Germans have put the future of Europe under doubt again.

    Precisely because of the new-old Sudeten question Czech President Vaclav

    Klaus declined flatly to sign the European Union’s Lisbon Treaty, a substitute analog of the European Constitution voted down by the Europeans.

    Despite a week ago at the repeated referendum the Lisbon Treaty was endorsed by Ireland, Mr. Klaus refused to sign it in the current condition.

    “Although many do not realize that, the Lisbon Treaty means global changes. And I have always considered this treaty a step in the wrong direction. It will deepen the problems the EU is facing today, it will increase its democratic deficit, worsen the standing of our country and expose it to new risks, among other things also because it endangers the legal status of the citizens and the stability of property rights in our country,” the Czech President thinks.

    At the same time he set a condition of agreement signing which he disclosed only to Jerzy Buzek, the president of the European Parliament. Mr. Klauis raised the matter of restitutions.

    Mr. Klaus said he feared that the provision, part of the treaty’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, could be used as a legal basis for a flood of property claims related to the expulsion of three million Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II.

    Mr. Klaus said he wanted the Czech Republic to have an opt-out of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which lays down the basic human rights of all European Union citizens, including property rights.

    “Mr. Klaus’s demand could be satisfied by other means. For example, Poland and Britain had already secured opt-outs from the charter,” Mr. Buzek said.

    The Lisbon Treaty was signed by EU countries’ leaders in Portugal in December 2007. It stipulates institutional reforms in the EU, including introduction of post of president and minister of foreign affairs. The process of ratification has been halted for several times. Now there remained three countries which failed to endorse finally the Treaty – Ireland, Czech Republic and Poland. Warsaw announced that it will do that on 10 October. After approval at the referendum Ireland is also preparing ratification of the Treaty.

    Germany has nothing to gain from the human rights racket. All the disadvantages in form of social collapse, certainly, but no protection whatsoever. There will be no rise from powerlessness until we have abandoned this false doctrine.

    If one looks at the UN human rights charter it's like reading a universalist-socialist, or communist, political manifesto. Any nation that wishes to remain strong and independent must, as Hauke Haien says, free itself from the straitjacket that the human rights charter represents for domestic and foreign-policy making.
