why would germany be a blind supporter to Israel? I would love to know. Merkel is just stating the obvious. Israel is violating palestinan rights.I am against interference in foreign states affairs however Israel has lost this right by colonizing palestinian territories;hence opening teh door to legitimiate criticism. noone can afford having predators around. do you get this? if israel does it, others will do as well. however Israel is not the biggest violator of international laws,the US are. so people should also take care of this case . thank you for bringing your country into the spotlight. israel, can go back on track with a minimum effort, do you think your country can?
