Germany, Antisemitsme, Israel, Palestine a very difficult topic with many aspects. Just two things: A few weeks ago the jewish kindergarten in Berlin has been attacked during the night.The invaders left the place painted with Nazisymbols. As I have heard many people from the jewish community in Berlin fear to wear their Kippa in public. On the other hand the "Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland" belong to the morally most important institutions in Germany. Their political influence is very important. I doubt that there is any country in the world Germany feels as responsible for as for Israel. Still, the large majority of Germans disagree with Israles policy twoards the Palestinians. But except for the far right no politician has the courage to say it openly and clearly. To understand the relation between Germany und Israel (and vice versa) bigger efforts are needed than to ask some questions.
