Deja vu all over again in Germany

The German parliament was scheduled to meet Thursday night to vote on resolutions introduced by all of its major parties slamming Israel for intercepting the flotilla of fools trying to run Israel's legal 'blockade' of Gaza.
In what appears to be precedent-setting German parliamentary action against Israel, the major parties – ranging from the Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union and its governing coalition partner the Free Democrats, to the Social Democrats and the Green Party – drafted a resolution urging Israel to agree to an international inquiry and end its blockade of Gaza.
The local Jewish community is furious.
The Central Council of Jews on Wednesday issued an angry condemnation of the German parliamentary resolutions.

“This behavior is unparalleled in the history of the friendship between Germany and Israel and worsens the conflict in the Middle East, instead of facilitating peace prospects,” wrote the heads of the council.

The German Jewish organization criticized all the German parties, saying “the planned joint motion by the CDU/CSU, FDP, SPD and Alliance 90/The Greens, as well as a separate motion by the Left Party, are based on incomplete information and a mixture of half-truths and public prejudices.”

The Central Council termed sections of the media and the public as engaging in a “one-sided bias against Israel.”

According to the text of the draft resolution of all parties, there is a call “to support the demand for an international investigation of the operation against the ‘solidarity fleet,’ as was again demanded by the secretary-general of the United Nations, which would consider the behavior of both sides...”

The resolution further criticized Israel for “violating the principle of proportionality” by employing violence against the radical activists aboard the Mavi Marmara.

“The blockade of Gaza is counterproductive and does not serve the security interests of Israel,” wrote the party leaders.

The Israeli Embassy declined to comment on the resolution. An Israeli diplomat, however, said privately that the political situation has dramatically shifted against Israel in Germany.
This shift has been going on for a while though - this is just another step.

In January 2009, German police broke into a private home in Duisberg, in Western Germany, and removed an Israeli flag from a window because Muslims found it annoying (the flag is pictured at the top of this post). Although the Germans eventually apologized for that incident, in September 2009, a German student was fined 300 euros (about $450 at the time - much less today) for displaying an Israeli flag during a 'spontaneous' demonstration by Muslims. And in October 2009, fellow blogger Robert Spencer traveled to Germany to violate a ban on displaying the Israeli flag during demonstrations.

There's a pattern here. And it's leading straight back to 1939. What could go wrong?

Now yo talkin, Dawg.

I say bomb Berlin back to the stone age. These racist Europeans will never learn the extent to which they have taken the world back with their hatred and bigotry until they taste some of their own medicine.

If the modern nation of Germany had an ounce of honor, they would plan to wait at least 10,000 more years before allowing themselves to slam the Jewish nation with millions of Jews in it for any reason whatsoever (and most especially when it comes to Jews engaging in self-defense while being clubbed and stabbed by Jew-haters).

Germany's evil isn't yet that far beneath the surface after only 65 years since WWII.

The German government should shut their traps and then go home and read "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" a few more times (100 may suffice) before returning to work.

Germany does not have the moral right to criticize Israel. They haven't earned it and they never will. Its just outrageous chutzpah! Israel does not have to justify itself to the nation whose forebears a generation ago murdered six million Jews in cold blood.

Deja vu, indeed.

It still boggles my mind that any self-respecting Jew would set foot in Germany, let alone live in that cesspool.

The veneer of civilization in Germany is still less than one micron thick.
