Sack the German foreign minister for anti-Semitism

I believe the German Chancellor is our ally. I believe that the vast majority of Germans are against anti-Semitism and for Israel. I also believe that there is still a lot of anti-Semitism in Germany, but as a nation it has really shown to be our friend and ally and anti-Jewish sounds are always met there with protests.

Germany disagreed that Hebron is not Jewish, did not agree that Jerusalem and the Temple mount are not Jewish (UNESCO), its FM wants to outlaw burning of the Israeli flag and he wants no relations with Iran unless Iran has relations with Israel.

However, the upheaval over the betrayal of US President Obama obscures that Germany (and all the other SC countries backstabbed Israel. Germany held in the Security Council and in the General Assembly that the US President should not move their embassy to Jerusalem (UN). And now has its FM who says that our behavior in the West Bank is Apartheid — and this is not the first time, really not, he colludes with our enemies. Tolerance for anti-Israel views from the top down, must stop.

It is completely illegitimate to compare Israel to Apartheid South-Africa or dictatorships like China or Russia.

You can’t have it both ways, Germany. You either sack this doubletalking FM or you are not really our friend.

The doublespeak has to stop. The incitement must end.

I don’t doubt Germany’s sincerity regarding Israel. I applaud Germany for its change of heart regarding Jews. (An example for the Arab nations.) But having such a FM is not acceptable. That’s not how friends talk.

A smart person who can trash Israel without saying anything that is against the law is still intolerable.

Desperate diseases require desperate remedies.

Germany and Europe have permitted themselves to say the sharpest things to Israel. It’s our turn. Raus! [Out!] with your FM.

He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
