Austria?s Pro-Nazi Laws May Be Vetoed by U.S., Washington Indicates

A Reuters journalist on the Golan said Austrian troops had already moved from the Quneitra crossing point to a United Nations base inside the Israeli-held part of the heights on Tuesday. "The first 60 to 80 soldiers will land in Vienna tomorrow afternoon, so you http://www.dailystrength.org/people/3007346/journal/6602750 can already see the withdrawal on site," Austrian Defense Ministry spokesman Andreas Strobl told Reuters in Vienna. The Austrians have patrolled the buffer zone between Israel and Syria as part of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force, known as UNDOF, since it was set up in 1974. The Vienna government said last week it would pull out after worsening fighting between Syrian rebels and government forces sent its soldiers running for cover. Two soldiers were wounded last week after Syrian rebels captured a border post, then were driven out by government troops. Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger said Austria would now negotiate with the United Nations about an orderly handover to the next contingent, "if there is one," but reserved the right to stick to its timetable for a full exit within four weeks.

"Dietrich Mateschitz and Bernie Ecclestone have reached agreement to the effect that Formula One will come back to Styria next year," Red Bull said in a brief statement issued in Austria. "On condition of approval by the required authorities, July 6, 2014 is expected to be the date." Austria last hosted a grand prix in 2003, after which the circuit was due to be extended, but construction work was stopped midway and the track became unusable for years before Mateschitz bought and rebuilt it, renaming it the Red Bull Ring. The circuit has hosted junior series and German Touring Car (DTM) races in recent years. Mateschitz, who founded Red Bull with two http://poo02au.livejournal.com/3665.html Thai partners in 1984, is one of Austria's richest people, with a net worth of $7.1 billion, according to Forbes. There was some speculation last December that Spielberg could return even earlier, with Ecclestone leaving a July 21 slot open for a mystery European race in 2013 that was ultimately left vacant.

Formula One will return to Austria in 2014

Austrian officials here today said that the establishment of a "Hardship Settlement Fund" is being planned by the government in Vienna from the proceeds of heirless property belonging to Jews and others. They asserted that the disposition of this fund was discussed with Jewish organizations with a view to satisfying claims arising from the Nazi regime. At the same time, they revealed that the fund will be made up of about 95 percent heirless Jewish property and five percent of non-Jewish property. In this connection, it was recalled that during the recent visit to Washington of Austrias Chancellor Dr. Leopold Figl, representatives of American Jewish organizations spoke to him of their objection to the financing of such a fund to assist all victims of Nazism from what amounted to expropriated Jewish assets. They pointed out that it would be unjust to tax a small segment of the population which suffered hardships unheard of in history, and that such general social tasks call for equal sacrifices on the part of all segments of society. AUSTRIA CHARGED WITH WRECKING RESTITUTION The general feeling among informed sources here is that unlike Western Germany, Austria is not only attempting to assume the role of the first country in the free world bent on wrecking restitution and on completely sabotaging indemnification, but is also trying to make the Jewish victims of Nazism pay the bill for Nazism, at least to the extent of the confiscation of Jewish heirless and unclaimed property for general purposes.

Another championship would be a dream. Internationally, we want to reach the group stage of the UEFA Europa League at least, but we can dream of the UEFA Champions League group stage." GEPA Austria celebrate winning the title The Violets will enter the UEFA Champions League in the third qualifying round, by which time their domestic campaign will have begun. The Bundesliga kicks off this weekend, while they have already beaten lower-tier SV Oberwart 3-0 in the first round of the Austrian Cup. Alexander Grunwald, Marko Stankovic and last term's 32-goal league top scorer Philipp Hosiner were all on target. Bjelica underlined the value of the knockout competition after the final whistle. Austria Wien may trail capital rivals Rapid 32-24 in terms of league titles, but they are undisputed cup kings, with their 27 wins nearly twice the tally of second-ranked Rapid (14). "The great cup pedigree of this club means we are committed to taking this competition very seriously," said Bjelica.
