Essay regarding the Death of Günter Grass 
and the Double Standards of the Elites
Appended Grass‘s poem from 2012: „What Must Be Said“ 

written by Jahn J Kassl
translated by Franz

On April 13th, 2015 one of the most significant
German language writers of current history,  
Günter Wilhelm Grass (*16.10.1927), returned to 
his creator. For this occasion his poem from the year 
2012 “What must be said” is included at the end in 
its entirety.

Double Standard of the Elites 

As Grass publicly announced his participation in the 
Waffen-SS in August 2006, politicians and media jumped 
on him. The double standard of our politicians and the 
media had high season and that Grass had reported his
SS-membership to the US army during his imprisonment 
on May 8th, 1945, no longer had any weight.

Joachim Fest, conservative German journalist, historian
and biographer of Adolf Hitler, said to the German weekly
Der Spiegel about Grass's disclosure: “After 60 years,
this confession comes a bit too late. I can't understand 
how someone who for decades set himself up as a moral 
authority, a rather smug one, could pull this off.”

(…) … Grass's biographer Michael Jürgs described the 
controversy as resulting in "the end of a moral institution".[61] 
Lech Walesa initially criticized Grass for keeping silent about 
his SS membership for 60 years. He later withdrew his criticism 
after reading Grass's letter to the mayor of Gdansk, saying 
that Grass "set the good example for the others."[62] On 14 August
2006, the ruling party of Poland, Law and Order, called on Grass 
to relinquish his honorary citizenship of Gdansk. Jacek Kurski, 
a Law and Justice politician said, "It is unacceptable for a city 
where the first blood was shed, where World War II began, to 
have a Waffen-SS member as an honorary citizen."[63] But, 
according to a 2010 poll[64][65] ordered by city's authorities, 
the vast majority of Gdańsk citizens did not support Kurski's 
position. The mayor of Gdańsk, Pawel Adamowicz, said that
he opposed submitting the affair to the municipal council 
because it was not for the council to judge history.[66]

The CDU-Politicians Wolfgang Börnsen and Philipp Mißfelder 
asked him for the return of the Nobel Prize.
(…) Max A. Höfer, Executive of “Initiative Neue Soziale 
Marktwirtschaft”, cited in the spring of 2007 in “Neue Zürcher 
Zeitung”, the „penetrating moral rigors“ of Grass are an „act 
of substitution“, „which polemics probably never exclusively 
and only point to the fact, which is much more nurtured by 
the essence of concealed shame and guilt, and hoped  
“that nobody would no longer let themselves be taken
to task” by Grass.

The Nazi-Club was swung, certainly politically correct. 
The “good ones”, those, who stood on the correct side of the 
system and exercised the sovereignty of interpretation, 
got worked up about Grass’s long silence regarding his Nazi past.

And just as loud as the outcry was about Grass, just as 
silent is it today, when it deals with the war of the new 
Nazis, the Kiev Junta, against their own people. 

The wall of silence regarding the events in Donbass 
are nearly as impervious, and our representatives 
collaborate with the Putsch-regime in Kiev, which 
is infiltrated by Bandera fascists.

What for Hitler were the Jews, the Gypsies and the Slavic 
races in general, are for the Kiev rulers, from Poroshenko 
and Yatsenyuk down, the Russians and anything Russian. 
The gas princess and multi billionaire Julia Timoshenko, 
who obtained her unbelievable wealth due to theft from 
her own people, would like to singlehandedly shoot a 
bullet into Putin’s head (“I am willing to take up a 
weapon and shoot the bastard (Putin) in his head” 2014).

From the West regarding this? Until today silence! 
Instead there is military assistance from the USA and NATO 
for the Kiev fascists, so that the genocide against their own 
people can be continued and can provoke a great war against 
Russia. The saber rattle at Russia’s borders completes the 
picture and lets one conclude this without misunderstanding.

Politicians collaborate with Nazis 

What Grass has been accused of, namely the SS membership 
of a 17-year old, today is political and media mainstream: 
It is the yearlong cooperation of our politicians with the 
corporate elites, the Neoconservatives in Washington
and recently the support of the Nazi and Bandera fascists 
in Kiev.  

With the small difference, that our elites are no longer 17, 
and carry a different responsibility. Grass had to endure
ridicule, while Obama, Merkel, Tusk, Mogherini, Schulz, 
Juncker, Schäuble, Hollande, and whatever their name is, 
collaborate quite obviously with the Kiev Nazis or the NWO 
conspirators in the White House and thereby give silent 
agreement to the Bandera brigades for the genocide in 
the Ukraine.

It is murder against the people, which only in its extent 
still does not reach the number of victims of the SS crimes, 
yet in its manner is not inferior in anything compared to the 
Hitler Nazis.The situation in the Ukraine corresponds »100 
percent to the classical definition of Dimitrov, fascism in its 
classical and purest form«. (Stephen Lendman, 12/17/2014)

Double standards, which are absolutely sickening! 
Against which a 17 year-old was then supposed to fight 
against, something our elites do not even recognize today: 
fascism and its resurrection! Therefore our politicians belong, 
according to “paragraph of promotion of Nazi ideology”, in 
front of an International Military Tribunal and not in a 
government chair! 

As a result of the enormous suffering inflicted upon the world 
by the Nazi regime, and especially Europe, a number of European 
countries have enacted laws criminalizing both the denial of the 
Holocaust and the promotion of Nazi ideology.
The aim of these laws is to prevent the resurrection of Nazism 
in Europe by stamping out at the earliest opportunity – or to 
use the phrase “to nip it in the bud” – any public reemergence 
of Nazi views, whether through speech, symbols, or public 
Individuals and groups today promoting Nazism, often called 
neo-Nazis, do not limit their ideology just to anti Semitism. 
Part and parcel of their message also involves hatred of other 
minority groups, most often individuals of African, Arab and 
Asian descent, and immigrants from non-European nations.
As a result, a number of the European laws banning neo-Nazi 
messages also ban racist and hate speech. Some also criminalize 
the denial of other genocides, most prominently the genocide 
of the Armenians.
Some of these countries, like Germany and Austria, take these 
laws very seriously and vigilantly prosecute both speech and 
behavior having any reference to Nazis and Nazism. Others, 
like Lithuania and Romania, despite laws on the books, 
enforce them sporadically.
A last set of countries put a higher value on free speech over 
the suppression of neo-Nazism and freely allow promotion of 
the Nazi message. In these countries, freedom of the press 
and freedom of speech are vehemently upheld even to the 
detriment of other rights. These countries include the 
United Kingdom, Ireland and the Scandinavian nations.
The anti-Nazi laws do not exist in every European country. 
Presently, the following European countries have some legislation 
criminalizing the Nazi message, including denial of the Holocaust: 
Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, 
Liechtenstein, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, 
Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland. Holocaust denial is also 
illegal in Israel.
(Holocaust Denial Laws and Other Legislation Criminalizing 
Promotion of Nazism, Prof. Michael J. Bazyler, Oppenheim 
Research Fellow International Institute for Holocaust Studies, 
Yad Vashem Professor of Law, Whittier Law School, California, 

Here I see the facts of the case clearly fulfilled, because our 
political actors are in constant connection with the commander-
in-chief of the Ukrainian army, the illegitimate President of the 
Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, as well as the illegitimate President 
And this while the murder continues in the East of the country!

And Israel?

Also here is the double standard, which our elites have 
succumbed to, the master of all lies.
While Israel manages the greatest free air concentration 
camp on earth (The 40 kilometers long and 10 kilometers 
wide Gaza strip is surrounded by a 60 kilometer long wall, 
which was erected in the 1990’s. 1.7 million people are thereby 
nearly completely controlled by the Israeli army.
The Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and 
Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes, spoke in this 
connection of a “huge free-air prison without normality 
and without human dignity. (diepresse.com, 11/18/2012)
and writes a deep-black chapter in human history by burning 
and mass murder, everyone, who criticizes this policy, is 
branded with the accusation of anti Semitism. Besides the 
expression of “conspiracy theorist” or “Nazi-Club”, “anti Semitism” 
is another accusation, which has been implemented by the NWO, 
in order to silence critics.

Allegation of Nazi-Club and Anti-Semitism

Günter Grass also experienced this, when he published the 
poem “What Must Be Said” in the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” 
on April 4th, 2012.

“This past week (March 2nd, 2015), Israel’s prime minister, 
Benjamin Netanyahu on the invitation of US Representative, 
John Boehner, addressed the US Congress on nuclear weapons 
and specifically how dangerous Iran would be with these 
weapons of mass destruction. Few would dispute that point 
while others would go even further asserting that none of 
the countries in the Middle East should have nuclear weapons. 
But, no one has made this bold statement more eloquently 
than Günter Grass, the 87-year old Nobel Prize laureate, 
German writer (novelist, poet and playwright) and artist 
(illustrator, scepter, and graphic artist).
Grass is best known for his novels including The Tin Drum (1959),  
Cat and Mouse (1963), Dog Years (1965), and his memoirs:  
Peeling the Onion (2007), The Box (2010), and Grimm’s Words: 
A Declaration of Love (2010) but he is also known as the author 
of the controversial poem “What Must Be Said” (2012) – which 
reveals the hypocrisy of the German military when they decided 
to sell and deliver a submarine that could be used to launch 
nuclear warheads against Iran.
Unfairly criticized and declared persona non grata in Israel, 
Grass has been a life long advocate of peace and a supporter 
of the Social Democratic Party of Germany. He has often 
criticized Germany and went on record opposing the unification 
of Germany, afraid the country would resume its role as a 
“belligerent” nation.
What Must Be Said are the words of a “hesitant” German to 
call out both the German and the Israeli government and 
the western powers for their policies and actions on nuclear 
warheads in the Middle East. The danger of selling Israel a 
submarine capable of launching nuclear warheads into Iran 
is portrayed in the poem with the question asked: Does 
Israel have the right to launch a nuclear warhead onto 
Iranian soil and wipe out the Iranian people because the 
country may be developing their own nuclear warheads? 
And, why isn’t Israel subject to the same supervision and 
inspections as Iran?  The poem points out the hypocrisy 
of the world powers and how dangerous it is to allow nuclear 
warheads in an area fraught with tension, aggressive behavior, 
and fragility.”
(Source: Anne Paddock, Paddock Post, March 7th, 2015)

Following the publication of the poem Grass gave several 
interviews and said among others: “There are only a few 
countries, which disregard UN resolutions as does Israel. 
It has been pointed out often enough by the UN that the 
settlement policy has to stop, but it continues.”…   
“Any criticism of Israel is the worst one can do to Israel.”
…”Israel is not only a nuclear power, instead it also developed 
into an occupation power.”(Source: Spiegel online, April 5th, 2012)

Let any one of you who is without sin be the 
first to throw a stone at her.”  (John 8:7)

Then in Jerusalem, human Beings dropped the stones, 
after Jesus put a mirror in front of them, they felt caught 
bare handed, and the woman survived. Today this is 
entirely different.

The greatest evildoers are as far from any guilt or 
injustice consciousness as the sun is from the earth, 
and they accuse others of the evil, which they themselves 
Today the new Nazis and the Nazi collaborators, 
which have advanced to the highest offices of State 
or to the highest positions in the media, describe those, 
who stand up against the system, generally as Nazis, 
this unquestionably under the cover of democracy.

Some even receive the Nobel Peace Prize, like the drone bomber
and mass murderer, US President Barack Hussein Obama.

It is obvious that mankind has a problem:
 „Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil 
obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have 
obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed 
because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are 
obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation 
and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people 
are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) 
the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”
Howard Zinn (1922-2010) US-American Historian, Failure to Quit
And this problem is a challenge and a chance at the same time, 
because it is necessary to withdraw from this system and to 
create a new consciousness – first in oneself!

Obeying the inner Voice

Obeying yes, but not the system, 
instead one’s inner voice!

1.) Obeying the inner voice, as one wants to 
impose a new war on us, by whatever means.
2.) Obeying the inner voice,as one wants to kill us 
with mandatory inoculation, RFID-Chips or gene food.
3.) Obeying the inner voice and not go there when 
there is war.
4.) Obeying the inner voice,and not purchase 
what cartels offer us.
5.) Obeying the inner voice
and reject the RFID-Chip.
6.) Obeying the inner voice
and bring your television to special recycling.
7.) Obeying the inner voice
and restrict the use of the cell phone.
8.) Obeying the inner voiceand whenever possible 
avoid conventional medicine, using medications.
9.) Obeying the inner voice
and apply alternative healing methods (i.e. homeopathy, 
quantum healing, consciousness work).
10.) Obeying the inner voiceand make known 
your standpoint and defend it courageously.
11.) Obeying the inner voice and call things by their name.
12.) Obeying the inner voiceand trust God, 
because the inner voice reveals God to us.

Günter Grass has returned to his creator. What he leaves 
behind for us deserves respect and the necessary appreciation. 
The “inner voice” was still intact with this writer, 
the look at the world – even though with bitterness – mostly 
clear and what must be said was still said, even though with 
the “last ink”.

These are attributes, which our elites in media and politics are 
cut off from. In these human Beings the “inner voice” has been 
silenced, it can no longer be detected and therefore they work 
themselves off in a bold manner on personalities like 
Günter Grass. Pointing with the finger at human weaknesses 
of others, they hide their own inhumanity and the resulting 
crimes. Today like 2000 years ago:
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's 
eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 
Bible, Mathew7:3

This is with respect to the life and death of this great 
writer and based on my inner voice “What Still Must Be Said”!

Günter Grass: What must be said

Why have I kept silent, held back so long,
on something openly practised in
war games, at the end of which those of us
who survive will at best be footnotes?

It's the alleged right to a first strike
that could destroy an Iranian people
subjugated by a loudmouth
and gathered in organized rallies,
because an atom bomb may be being
developed within his arc of power.

Yet why do I hesitate to name
that other land in which
for years – although kept secret –
a growing nuclear power has existed
beyond supervision or verification,
subject to no inspection of any kind?

This general silence on the facts,
before which my own silence has bowed,
seems to me a troubling, enforced lie,
leading to a likely punishment
the moment it's broken:
the verdict "Anti-semitism" falls easily.

But now that my own country,
brought in time after time
for questioning about its own crimes,
profound and beyond compare,
has delivered yet another submarine to Israel,
(in what is purely a business transaction,
though glibly declared an act of reparation)
whose speciality consists in its ability
to direct nuclear warheads toward
an area in which not a single atom bomb
has yet been proved to exist, its feared
existence proof enough, I'll say what must be said.

But why have I kept silent till now?
Because I thought my own origins,
tarnished by a stain that can never be removed,
meant I could not expect Israel, a land
to which I am, and always will be, attached,
to accept this open declaration of the truth.

Why only now, grown old,
and with what ink remains, do I say:
Israel's atomic power endangers
an already fragile world peace?
Because what must be said
may be too late tomorrow;
and because – burdened enough as Germans –
we may be providing material for a crime
that is foreseeable, so that our complicity
will not be expunged by any
of the usual excuses.

And granted: I've broken my silence
because I'm sick of the West's hypocrisy;
and I hope too that many may be freed
from their silence, may demand
that those responsible for the open danger
we face renounce the use of force,
may insist that the governments of
both Iran and Israel allow an international authority
free and open inspection of
the nuclear potential and capability of both.

No other course offers help
to Israelis and Palestinians alike,
to all those living side by side in enmity
in this region occupied by illusions,
and ultimately, to all of us.
