Solidarity with Israel! - Withdraw the Right of Existence from Germany!!

In the aftermath of the revolution of 1979, Iran was remodeled into an autocratic theocracy that cuts women’s rights and persecutes the opposition. Within the Muslim world the Mullahs of Iran stress their leading role in spreading anti-Semitism and a global call for arms against Israel. A European debate on the condition of Iran has only started as a consequence of a possible
nuclear threat that Iran is posing to Europe, as well as the ongoing denial of the Holocaust by Ahmadinejad. Although a visit to Germany by Ahmadinejad during the World Cup has not been confirmed German’s Minister of the Interior,Wolfgang Schäuble, promised to be a „good host“ – that’s the way Holocaust-deniers are welcomed in this country. This preemptive hospitality cannot be explained without regard to the close economic ties of the two countries – Germany is Iran’s biggest trade partner. For example: a German firm sponsors the Iranian vice squad.

In the 1940s, ideological similarities already led to a practical cooperation of National Socialists and Islamic fundamentalists. The Freie Nationalisten Rhein/Main (a regional hardcore nazi- group from the river Rhine/river Main region) stand in this tradition by solidarizing with the regime in Iran. Nonetheless, they do not forget to agitate in a racist way against „massive immigration and the corrosion of the German people (Volk)“. Islamic fundamentalists are welcomed as strategic partners in a fight of völkische collectives against an imagined world-wide jewish conspiracy. Following the anti-Semitic delusion, Nazis suspect the „Kulturfeind“ not only in Israel but behind every „malice“ of modernity; of course also in Frankfurt that they entitle the „city of stock exchange and the city of high street banks, the Jerusalem on the river Main“.

Behind the German curtain of complaints about savage anti-Semitism voiced by Nazis and Islamic fundamentalists lies a broad anti-Semitic consensus.Following a study of 2005 68% of the German population are annoyed with „being charged with German crimes against Jews“. And just as many think that „Israel is waging a war of extermination against the Palestinian people“. Since 1989 postwar- Germans see themselves as world champions in dealing with history, claiming a morally superior position that allows them to demonize Israel as today’s perpetrator.

In trying to secure the everyday lives of Jews on a political and military level Israel must have our full support and solidarity. Instead of denying or paternalistically granting Israel the right to exist – as many Germans do – we consciously turn against Germany, the country of perpetrators. Due to it’s grave and outrageous crimes we decline to accept Germany’s right to exist.
