ARD–Glossary justifies genocide – Dr. Goebbels would be proud

ARD editor-in-chief Oliver Köhr dictates to his staff in a mocking and mendacious paper how the genocide in the Gaza Strip should be communicated to the German people – he has blood on his hands.

We have already published six articles on the events in the Middle East.

In Part 1 (1914-1947), Part 2 (1948-1956), Part 3 (1956-1973), Part 4 (1973-1994) we shed light on the history of Israel based on facts.

At the same time, we published two special articles; one on the genocide of the Jews by Nazi Germany “The unpunished crimes of the Holocaust” and an article dealing with the abuse of terms “Judaism, Zionism, anti-Semitism and Israel: abuse of terms“.

Part 5 of our series on Israel will be published tomorrow.

In our blog, we present facts and make every effort to separate the factual from the emotional. We do this even when emotions arise in our work, as we are firmly convinced that geopolitics can only be understood and categorized in this way.

For all our love of the discipline to follow the credo of the factual, we reach our limits with the events in Gaza. As human beings, it is incomprehensible how the leading Western media can portray the slaughter of over 20,000 people who are unable to defend themselves as a war against terrorism. Over 90% of the dead are civilians, women and children. On October 31, Israel bombed a refugee camp, killing 50 people and injuring 150, in order to liquidate one Hamas officer. Nothing can justify this action.

ARD propaganda at an unseen level

An important find reveals shocking facts

In the course of our work a few weeks ago, we found a leaked internal ARD document with the cryptic title “Glossary – Coverage of the Middle East conflict – for internal use, as of 18.10.2023“. ARD is the abbreviation for “Arbeitsgemeinschaft der öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunkanstalten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland”. The nine regional broadcasters (state broadcasters) – such as Norddeutscher Rundfunk, Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk and Bayerischer Rundfunk – have joined forces in this consortium.

“You stand by each other when unsavory things come out.”

Document of horror (translated by DeepL)

This document provides the reader with an insight into the perfidy with which the management of the first German television station feeds its own employees with pseudo-scientific half-truths in order to justify a genocide. The obvious aim is to give war crimes a moral veneer. ARD will be anything but happy that this internal document has made it into the public domain. This document was not covered in any mainstream media: People stand by each other when unsavory things come out.

When Germany spreads hate propaganda, its history makes it even more bitter than when other countries do so. The country that poisoned the souls of the German people between 1933 and 1945 under the expert leadership of Dr. Joseph Goebbels is doing it again.

However, Oliver Köhr, editor-in-chief of ARD since 1 May 2021, takes hatred to a level that even Dr. Goebbels would have recoiled from. The German people knew about the thousands of concentration camps where Jews were held and tortured during the Second World War. But only a few knew about the industrial extermination of Jews in secret extermination camps in eastern Poland. This happened far away from the eyes of the German public. This meant that Dr. Goebbels did not have to justify these atrocities.

“Dr. Goebbles would be proud of him.”

What Mr. Köhr does, however, he does in public. In order to train his working group, employees, editors and television presenters throughout Germany are given an internal document that prescribes which terms they must use so that they, and consequently the viewers, can sleep well after the reports on this genocide have been broadcast.

“Mr. Köhr has brought us the horror – utopia has become reality.”

ARD editor-in-chief Köhr surpasses Dr. Goebbels – the latter would be proud of the former

In his most famous work “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, George Orwell described exactly this, how the state developed a new language that restricted the possibilities of expression and thus abolished freedom of thought. The language was called “Newspeak“. When I read this work of the century as a high school student, I was depressed by this utopia of horror – Mr. Köhr has brought us the horror – the utopia has become reality.

We see it as our duty to show the people of Germany the unsavory means by which they are being manipulated.

A document of horror

We recommend every reader to read this document of horror (we translated it by DeepL) between the years. We see a lot of bad things in the course of our work for the blog. However, the fact that the first German television channel resorts to such means to justify mountains of dead children leaves us speechless. ARD would be obliged by law to report in a neutral and balanced way on all factual issues.

At this point, a single section of this internal document should suffice to prove the point.

As already determined by the editors-in-chief, we should not write and speak euphemistically of “Hamas fighters”, but of terrorists. Synonyms include “militant Islamists”, “militant Palestinians”. “terrorist militia” or similar.


To quote 1

Hamas is not a terrorist organization, but a political liberation organization that won the 2006 elections to the Palestinian parliament with an absolute majority under strict international observation. Hamas fighters are not terrorists, but the military arm of Hamas. In our next article, we will take a detailed look at the development and orientation of Hamas.

The anti-Semitic Hamas is widely classified internationally as a terrorist organization.


To Quote 2:

The claim that Hamas is anti-Semitic is a lie. In May 2017, Hamas published a policy document (charter) in which it clearly and unambiguously sets out its intentions, means and views regarding all aspects of its conflicts with Israel.

The charter addresses the Jews in paragraphs 16 and 17, which we are publishing here – the statements are clear, differentiated and self-explanatory:

  1. Hamas affirms that its conflict is with the Zionist project not with the Jews because of their
    religion. Hamas does not wage a struggle against the Jews because they are Jewish but wages
    a struggle against the Zionists who occupy Palestine. Yet, it is the Zionists who constantly
    identify Judaism and the Jews with their own colonial project and illegal entity.
  2. Hamas rejects the persecution of any human being or the undermining of his or her rights
    on nationalist, religious or sectarian grounds. Hamas is of the view that the Jewish problem,
    anti-Semitism and the persecution of the Jews are phenomena fundamentally linked to
    European history and not to the history of the Arabs and the Muslims or to their heritage. The
    Zionist movement, which was able with the help of Western powers to occupy Palestine, is the
    most dangerous form of settlement occupation which has already disappeared from much of the
    world and must disappear from Palestine.
Art 16 and 17 of the hamas charter

Hamas is therefore not anti-Semitic, but the leading political liberation organization fighting for a Palestinian state. We have already dealt with the tendentious use of the term anti-Semitism in our article “Judaism, Zionism, anti-Semitism and Israel: abuse of terms” and demonstrated that criticism of the state of Israel in and of itself or of the expansive policies of the Israeli state is not anti-Semitic.

The fact that Hamas is largely classified internationally as a terrorist organization is another lie: Hamas is supported by most states in the world – in some cases financially. It is only classified as a terrorist organization by the collective West. That is around 10% of the world’s population.

Also, Hamas – unlike the Israeli army – does not differentiate between military targets and civilians in its actions.


To quote 3:

The Israeli army is currently only attacking civilian targets in Gaza in the hope of also killing Hamas fighters. Of the 20,000 Palestinians killed, 18,000 were civilians.

Hamas’ declared goal is rather the “destruction of Israel”


To quote 4:

Hamas is fighting for a state of Palestine – the destruction of Israel is not mentioned at all in its charter.

The actions of Hamas on October 7

We have been researching and investigating since October 7 to find out what really happened on that day. We will publish our findings soon. We can already say in advance that this was not a terrorist attack, but a long-term planned and excellently executed military action against the Israeli armed forces, which made the Israeli army look so bad that the media portrayed it as a terrorist attack. There were indeed civilian Israeli victims, most of whom, according to Israeli sources, were killed by the Israeli armed forces – and deliberately so.


I haven’t watched television myself for 15 years. However, millions of people still get most of their information this way.

We have discovered that ARD, as a German public service organization, will stop at nothing in its deliberate manipulation of its employees and viewers and has sunk to a level that leaves us speechless.

“It’s time to stand up”

Our blog constantly warns against the mainstream media and a few months ago pointed out the EU’s plans to take away the freedom of the internet and thus also independent media such as this blog, see “Freedom of expression in the EU is history“.

Our readers know that the media in the West are distorting the situation in Russia and Ukraine beyond recognition, but the Russians can defend themselves militarily and the whole edifice of lies in the Western press is already imploding, as reality is about to prevail.

What we reported today, however, is on a different level – the people in Gaza cannot defend themselves. They are being slaughtered and the German public is being manipulated to such an extent that this genocide is largely accepted by them.

It is time to stand up and hold the people known by name who are responsible to account. Otherwise, people in the West will have to admit to themselves that Palestinian children, mothers and old people are not human beings.
