“Domradio” says that this week in Afghanistan’s capital Khabul the IS killed at least 41 Shia-Muslims out of Shiaphobia.

Oh! Thank you, stephaniejack!
I didn’t know about this website.
“Tagesschau” had a report about the “Deckel drauf e.V.” today. This is an aid-organisation that collects old refastenable lids so as to raise money for the vaccination of children in India, Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan against polio. These are the only four countries where polio hasn’t gone extinct yet.
“Deckel drauf e.V.” collects lids made of synthetic material, but not cork, PET or metal. Then they sell them to companies that recycle things like these.
One of the adresses where they accept your donation of lids:
Deckel drauf Friesen
Grüne Au 40

There are many other red crescent hospitals scattered across the region. I heard about them at https://sites.google.com/view/cheapessaydone/ and that they’re incredibly affordable as well.

“And not the manufacturers job to decide who in aociety will do that”. Hmmm…Maybe you can see it this way, but some people still beg to differ. If you sell guns to Afghanistan, you can presume that these will be used to kill the innocent. This week for example Taliban killed about 230 people in Afghanistan during terrorist attacks – according to “Domradio” and many other radio stations, newspapers and news-shows on TV.
I think that most Germans are so critical about this, because this selling of guns to people who use them for killing innocent people reminds them of the days when many German producers of chemicals sold toxic material to the nazis who then used these to kill people in the gas chambers.

You are correct on H&K, obviously it’s easier to say that than the whole name. Sig Sauer is also a German company, at least mine says Made in West Germany on it. (yes both of us are old)
Manufacturers have no business selling weapons in third world countries. I think they do that only for the “green” and I think that it’s wrong of them to do so.
In places where the law prevails though, guns are sold through retailers who comply with the law regarding purchasing and selling (or face jail themselves). It’s the users’ job to follow the law and not the manufacturers job to decide who in society will do that.
