The Israel-supporting Jewish lobby in Germany has slammed the AfD’s electoral success as “frightening” while a new poll in Israel has found “Israelis generally support Germany’s welcoming of refugees from the Middle East.”
Both news snippets are outrageously hypocritical because Israel has the most overtly racially-based immigration and citizenship laws in the world, and has refused to take any “refugees” in at all.
A poll in Israel commissioned by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s Israel/Palestine branch, and conducted by Mitchell Barak’s Keevoon Research, Strategy and Communications Ltd., found that 56 percent of Israelis said that Berlin’s acceptance of refugees from Syria positively influences their view of Germany, while 36 percent view the policy negatively.
The survey, released just before the state elections in Germany, also found that 25 percent of Jews in Israel said they have a “much more favorable” view of Germany due to the mass nonwhite invasion of that country, while a further 31 percent had a “somewhat more favorable opinion.” Only 17 percent said they judged Germany “much less” favorably.
The survey, conducted in mid-February, and reported in the Times of Israel, found much Israeli sympathy for Germany in general and for its chancellor in particular.
A quarter of respondents said they have a “very favorable” view of the country. Nearly 45 percent have a “somewhat favorable” opinion of Germany, while only 26 percent hold negative views. Some 61 percent of Israelis have a high or very high opinion of Angela Merkel in particular.
The Jewish hypocrisy then reaches stunning—and blatant—heights, as the Times of Israel quotes the survey report as follows:
“This obvious admiration for Germany and the policy of the German federal chancellor led to an interesting discussion in Israel: Israeli journalists often point to the problematic dealings with asylum seekers in their own country (of all Western nations, it is Israel that has the lowest recognition rate of asylum seekers),” the poll’s authors write.
“In this context, Germany serves as a moral compass to which people can align themselves. Germany as a model example for humanity — in Israel such an assessment is nothing short of a miracle against the backdrop of our history.”
It is an understatement to say that “Israel that has the lowest recognition rate of asylum seekers.” In fact Israel actively expels all “refugees” from the Jewish state, and, as reported in the Jerusalem Post, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has specifically refused to take in any Syrian refugees at all.
Quoted in the Los Angeles Times, Netanyahu “rejected a call to host refugees from Syria and elsewhere, saying that Israel is “not in a position to take them in.”
Yet for some reason, Israelis like it very much when Germany takes in these “refugees from Syria.”
Meanwhile, in Germany, the president of the Zentralrat der Juden in Deutschland (Central Council of Jews in Germany), Josef Schuster, said in an interview with the Jüdische Allgemeine—the Central Council’s official newspaper—that he had had “his worst fears confirmed” by the Alternative für Deutschland’s (AfD) election successes last weekend.
Schuster went on to say that the “widespread resentment against refugees and the fear of some strangers have given the AfD an undeservedly high election result.”
“The fact that a thoroughly right-wing populist party, which sometimes tolerates right-wing positions, can get so many votes is evidence of a frightening rightward shift in the country,” Schuster said.
Schuster said it was now the “task of the democratic parties to respond to the fears of the population and avoid further divisions in society in order to cut away the ground from under the AfD.”
“Together, we must combat social exclusion and fight the devaluation fight of minorities in our country. We are convinced that it will be shown in the parliament that the AfD will be unable to find solutions,” said Schuster.
The hypocrisy here lies in the fact that the Central Council of Jews of Germany supports Israel—which has laws and policies which make the populist AfD look like kindergarten players.
Israel only allows Jews to immigrate to Israel—and uses its “Law of Return” to define who is a Jew. The Israeli News Service Ynet confirmed that the “Law of Return”—which allows persons with Jewish heritage three generations back to immigrate to Israel—is specifically based on the Nazi Nuremberg Laws which defined who was a Jew.
Even this Nazi-definition is not strict enough, Israel’s Chief Rabbi David Lau was quoted in the same Ynet article as saying.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has openly declared that “African immigrants threaten the identity of the Jewish state.”
The point here is not to dispute Israel’s right to be a Jewish country, or its right to take steps to ensure that it remains Jewish, both racially and religiously.
All groups have that same right to preserve their identity and culture, and Israel is currently the only country in the world which takes active steps to protect itself in this regard.
The real point to be made here is that whenever Europeans—such as the AfD—ask for this same right, the Jewish lobby is the very first to denounce such an attempt.
The facts show that the Jewish lobby knows very well that mass immigration is harmful to a nation’s cohesion and future existence. This is why they outlaw it in Israel.
However, at the very same time, the Jewish lobby actively promotes the very opposite policies for non-Jewish countries, and Germany in particular.
The hypocrisy is so blatant, and so obvious, that it cannot be by accident. It must be deliberate.
