The famous phrase
In monitoring the manifestations of German support, Enate stated that with the increasing number of children Gaza Those who were killed in the Israeli bombing, and the responses of German public opinion increased, Chancellor Olaf Schulz and his Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, raised a weak voice, saying, “We do not want civilians to be harmed,” and when they were asked, how can the killing of civilians stop without a ceasefire and without stopping the Israeli attacks? They repeated the same phrase: “We fully support Israel’s right to defend itself.”
He added that two hours after Israel bombed the Ahly Baptist Hospital and killed hundreds of people, Schultz published a statement in which he said, “Israel has the right to defend itself, and every country has the duty to protect its citizens.”
Prohibition of demonstrations
He said that the German government banned demonstrations, but those who listen to their consciences and support law, justice and peace took to the streets of Berlin in their thousands, protesting against Israel’s brutality.
The writer pointed out that German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (from the Green Party) is considered one of Israel’s most enthusiastic supporters. On the day of the Islamic Resistance Movement’s attack,agitationShe said: “Hamas is escalating the violence, and I strongly condemn the terrorist attacks against Israel from Gaza,” and added: “We are fully in solidarity with Israel and Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorism in accordance with of international law“.
Justifying Israeli barbarism
When Israel killed many Palestinian civilians, Baerbock continued her support by saying: “Europe as a whole stands with Israel.” Regarding the killing of civilians in Gaza as a result of Israeli attacks, she said: “The suffering and death of Palestinian civilians is part of the terrorists’ strategy,” in an attempt to exonerate the Israeli administration. On October 13, when the number of civilians in Gaza killed in Israeli attacks began to reach the thousands, she said: “Israel is suffering from barbaric terrorism these days. Nothing can justify this, and Israel has the right to defend itself against this.” Terrorism within the framework of international law, Germany stands by Israel without hesitation.”

Why is German extremism in support of Israel?
The writer discussed the reasons for Germany’s adoption of this extremist pro-Israel policy, summarizing it as: a past burden Holocaust And the genocide that the Jews were subjected to during the reign of Hitler, a past that still depends on Germany’s policy towards Israel, and worked The Jewish lobby With full force to continue this mortgage.
There is the influence of the United States, the unequal interdependence between the two sides after World War II, and Berlin’s following in the footsteps of American foreign and security policy.
One of the reasons for the extreme German policy in support of Israel is the coalition nature of the German government and the competition of the smaller partners in the coalition – the Free Democratic Party andGreen Party– On the courtship of Washington, which appears in the enthusiasm of Minister Burbock, who rose to the highest level with regard to the pro-Israel foreign policy and which destroyed her party’s deep gains on protecting human rights and defending peace, according to the writer’s words.
