F1 supremo backs the locking up of writers who criticise government of Azerbaijan
Bernie Ecclestone agreed yesterday that journalists who speak out against their government should be imprisoned.
With Azerbaijan hosting its first Formula One race this weekend, the sport has faced plenty of criticism with campaign groups, Amnesty International being the most recent, calling on the sport to take a public stance against the oil-rich state’s human rights record.
However, when put to Ecclestone that some journalists had been prosecuted for speaking out against president Ilham Aliyev’s regime, he replied: “So they should. It depends what they say. You say they write negative things. It depends what they write.
“I tell you what we ought to do — as far as we are concerned — not have any races where there is corruption in the country. Can you tell me where we are going to be racing?”
Human Rights campaigners have accused Aliyev’s regime of wrongful imprisonment of journalists and bloggers, freezing financial public resources and restrictive legislation.
They also claim that media outlets critical of Aliyev’s government have been harassed and intimidated and subsequently forced to close, while four journalists have also died in custody since 2005, according to Sport for Rights.
Ecclestone was fielding questions after Amnesty International released a statement on Wednesday night saying: “Formula One should use its influence and publicly call on the Azerbaijan authorities to end their crackdown on human rights.”
In response, the Formula One supremo said that the sport has a “100 per cent” clear conscience ahead of Sunday’s race on the streets of capital city Baku.
Top-ranking Formula One officials met with Sport For Rights — another campaign group which urged Ecclestone to speak out against Aliyev’s regime, and call for the release of political prisoners — last Monday. Further discussions have also been planned.
“Yes, we are [taking the issue seriously], of course,” added Ecclestone, who was not present at the talks. “We have been in correspondence and we have assurance from here that they are looking into all these things.
“We listen, obviously, and if people have got a genuine complaint there is not a lot we can do, because in all fairness I think you would get into trouble in most countries if you were very, very anti some government or political people, or in fact anybody, so it is not quite as easy as that.”

Italian newspaper distributes Mein Kampf as its weekend supplement
An Italian newspaper has fallen into disrepute because it published Hitler‘s Mein Kampf as its supplement in the Saturday edition. The Jewish community in Italy and historians call the action of the newspaper “indecent” and “dangerous”.
The newspaper Il Giornale published the complete and original Italian edition of Mein Kampf from 1937
so, from a time when Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy, was Hitler’s ally
today as part of a series of eight books about the Nazis. The controversial book by Hitler is first in the series.
Abyss of hatred
A spokesman for the Jewish community in Italy responded yesterday to the announcement of the publication. “It should be clearly stated: the action of Il Giornale is indecent,” said Renzo Gettegna. He calls the free distribution by the newspaper “a filthy act light years away from any single logic when it comes to studying the Holocaust.” According to him, it does not do justice to “the factors which made humanity sank into an abyss of infinite hate, death and violence.” …
Il Giornale is a conservative newspaper which has always supported former Prime Minister Berlusconi
being (partly) owned by Berlusconi
says correspondent Rop Zoutberg. “What critics find objectionable is that Il Giornale is trying to get its sales up by the publication of Mein Kampf.”
Earlier this week there was also in Germany a fuss over plans for a new publication of Mein Kampf by a right-wing conservative publishing house. The book is in stores in Germany since the beginning of this yea, but only in a version in which lies and inaccuracies are shown in Hitler’s argumentation. In the Netherlands the trade in a reprint of the book is banned.

From the New York Times in the USA, 1 June 2016:
A German publisher of right-wing books has begun selling a reprint of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” originally issued in 1943 by the Nazi party’s central publishing house, a move that risks violating Germany’s law against the distribution of Nazi propaganda.
Now, state prosecutors in the German city of Leipzig, where the publisher, Der Schelm, is based, are investigating whether they can press charges. …
The move comes as a new far-right political party, Alternative for Germany, has risen in popularity, in part, by appealing to fears linked to the arrival last year of a million migrants and by questioning many of the liberal policies and premises that have dominated public discourse in postwar Germany.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is facing scrutiny this week after questions emerged over what happened to millions of dollars he allegedly raised for veterans at a fundraiser in January. Trump held the fundraiser on January 28 after he refused to take part in a debate organized by Fox News.
At the time, Trump claimed he had raised over $6 million, but a recent Washington Post investigation revealed that only about half of the money was actually paid out to veterans groups. Soon after the Post article was published, Trump began cutting more checks. More than a dozen veterans’ groups reported receiving money from Trump over the past week. On Tuesday, Trump held a press conference to defend his actions, and lambasted the press. Outside the press conference, members of the group Vets Vs. Hate protested. We speak to one of them, Iraq War veteran Julio Torres.

Last week, our own Jessica Schulberg dove into the strange and scary world of Donald Trump’s neo-Nazi and white nationalist supporters. She found out that those guys and Trump’s Jewish supporters are both convinced that the candidate’s on their side. (They can’t both be right.) Then she wrote a story about it. We asked her about the piece: here.
