Germans who uncritically support the state of Israel are the ones who have learnt nothing from their terrible Nazi past. They have simply replaced racism against Jews with racism against Arabs. The underlying ideology remains the same, albeit in a more moderate manifestation. A German, indeed any human being who has learnt something from the Nazi era will treat all human beings Jews, Gypsies, Gays and Arabs as being of equal worth and equally entitled to dignity and a homeland. Such a human being is bound to be critical of Israel and its policies on the West Bank. I don't want to hear that the Palestinians' real homeland is in Jordan. Try telling a Canadian that his real homeland is in the US or a Belgian that her homeland is France. Standards that we apply to white people should equally apply to people with brown skins and Jewish respect should not be at the expense of another People. If there was a G-d she wouldn't want the Palestinians to suffer, they are Semites too after all.
