Goodbye, Germany

When talking about Israel, one always asks: which subject today? Or this hour? There’s so much to cover!

This week, I’d like to discuss the profoundly immoral stance of the international community regarding Israel’s legitimacy.

It was announced today that Germany’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeirer said the country would back the European Union’s labeling of products made in “the West Bank, east Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.” You’ve probably heard of this boycott effort, led by international leftists who hate Jews and hate Israel.

Pathetically, Steinmeirer was quick to add that “Israeli” products (those produced inside the dangerously small Israel proper) would continue to be sold in Europe and, thank you, Frank-Walter, those products will get “preferential market access.”BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x250(1)

How kind.

Further, the German Foreign Ministry said “there will not be an Israel boycott in Germany.”

As if this parsing suffices. The bottom line is that Steinmeirer has perhaps forgotten a little historical footnote called the Holocaust, in which, among other things, Jews within the Reich were first imperiled through economic boycotts. Signs were put up in the shops of Jewish owners, warning German citizens not to do business there.

We know what happened after that.

Making a distinction between Israel proper and the Disputed Territories might help the Germans sleep better at night (amid their nightmares of murder from 70 years ago), but it simply in reality drives home the point that they are immoral.

For decades, the PLO and the wider pan-Arab world worked tirelessly to depict Israel as illegitimate, itself a “Nazi state.” Incredibly, the world fell for it. Now, in a lame attempt to appear even-handed, Germany’s leadership extends one economic hand to the Jewish state, while working to tie the other one behind Israel’s back.

Produce and goods that come from the region between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean must be partitioned, in the minds of international elites, who prefer to try and pacify the genocidal Arabs, who would, were they to succeed in their millennia-long goal of exterminating the Jews, come after the Europeans next.

(Or perhaps they already have! The attacks in Paris and the encroachment of Islam in every European country — fully 30 percent of Brussels is Muslim! — signal that the invasion has begun.)

It’s especially galling that the Germans would deny they are boycotting Israel, even as they boycott Israel.

Interestingly, Israel is thriving and has the best security in the world, while Old World Europe is a dying ember and even the U.S. is being remade in the image of the false god in the White House. Both communities are in rapid decline.

Yet Israel remains.

According to the Jerusalem Post:

“Israel’s National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz termed the EU label measure ‘disguised anti-Semitism.’

“A spokeswoman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the Post on the telephone that the federal government is reviewing the Post query. Merkel has said she opposes boycotts of Israel but has not issued a public statement on EU product labels.”

Merkel of course is the delusional leader of Germany working around the clock to flood the country with Middle East refugees — many of whom will finish-off the once-proud German nation once they are in place and their terror cells are operative.

Europe’s madness is hard to watch, inexplicable and terrifying.

The only thing that separates us from the hapless and clueless Europeans is 300 million privately owned guns.

If found it ironic that Germany’s stance on boycotts did not include Gaza. You’ll recall that 10 years ago, Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza, leaving much business infrastructure for the Palestinians, who promptly burned it all to the ground. Yet civilized Europe still tries to appease the Death Cult.

Soon and very soon, Europe will enter into a new Dark Age, for myriad reasons involving their view of Israel and Jews.

America will hardly be in a position to rebuild the Continent, then, as we did two generations ago.

I suggest we boycott Europe — travel and goods — and invest instead in Israel.

Long live the Jewish state.
