    I think it is very interesting to read the discussion that is going on here in the talkback. 1) I do think that Germany has a problem with the growing number of partisans of the neo-Nazis. Let there be no doubt about it. And even though they are less here than in other European countries , they are a shame for our country. 2) I do not agree that the German media is biased in favor of the Palestinians. If I compare the German news media with the British (BBC, Guardian) or Haaretz and in some cases even the Jerusalem Post, then it is clear that the German media is a lot more careful to write critically about Israeli policies vis-a-vis the Palestinians. 3) Finally, I am really sad that some of the people living here in Germany have such a gloomy picture of the German public opinion. I will definitely pay more attention to that in the future. But I actually think that the reality is not all that bad.
