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.
