Now comes interesting news from the Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) where it seems the German Leader, Angela Merkel, is just as bad as American and Canadian politicians. She is presently in Israel to grovel to her masters, and from this Jerusalem Post article, it appears that she is now making the absolutely outlandish claim that Israel's "security" is a Global Issue! This is utterly ridiculous, but I have that article right here for my own readers to ponder:
German leader: Israel’s security a global issueBy GREER FAY CASHMAN
At the conclusion of the luncheon attended by 20 people, Merkel, considered one of Israel’s closest allies in Europe, declared that “the security of Israel is not just a two-state issue, but a global issue. We have to make certain that the security of Israel in secure borders is assured.”
Merkel was also of one mind with Israel regarding the dangers posed by Iran’s nuclear program, and stated that ways must be found to curb Iran’s missile capability.
Peres said Merkel was visiting Israel at the right time in view of the problems in the region. He commended her for her ability to recognize problems for what they were and to envision what the situation should be. Even though there might be some issues of dispute, he acknowledged, Merkel was a very serious individual “who has never sacrificed values for expediency,” and for this reason, said Peres, she has kept the trust of the people. “No one can question her trust and sincerity.”
In thanking Merkel for her continued support, Peres said, “We are lucky to have a leader on whom we can rely on every word and promise.”
One of the reasons for Merkel’s visit to Israel was to expand scientific cooperation. Science is high on the president’s agenda, and from his perspective, it’s the key to the future. It is larger than strategy, politics or economics, he said.
New developments in the region also made Merkel’s visit timely.
“What is happening in the Middle East requires a change in situation and not just in government,” said Peres, alluding to those countries on the cusp of new regimes. “Peace is needed between the Middle East and the new world.”
Turning back to relations with Germany and its presence in the region, Peres thanked Merkel for the role she was playing in trying to bring abducted soldier Gilad Schalit back home, and for the clear stand she has taken vis-à-vis Iran, which he said was creating an unnecessary danger to the free world.
Peres was also appreciative of the role Germany was playing in helping the Palestinians improve their economic and social standing. Germany has nine projects in the West Bank and as many as 25 in Gaza, said Peres. Several of these programs are water-related and have to do with purification and the creation of new sources. Others are focused on law and order.
Peres told Merkel that she demonstrated democracy in practice.
“Democracy begins with elections, but it doesn’t end with elections,” he noted. Hinting at possible scenarios in the region, Peres added, “If you elect the wrong people, you bring an end to democracy.”
The present problem in the Middle East, said Peres, stems not from ideology, but from poverty. The population has grown from around 150 million to close to 400 million.
“You have to give them food; you have to give them jobs; you have to give them hope,” said Peres, who implied that unrest could escalate.
“We don’t see the end of the picture,” he said.
With minimal land and water, Israel’s agricultural output is 95-percent reliant on science, said Peres, who also offered to share Israel’s know-how with the poor countries of the world, including Israel’s neighbors.
“We cannot remain an island of prosperity in a sea of poverty,” he stressed.
Merkel was keen to explore avenues of trilateral scientific cooperation, which she said would allow democracies to prosper and would facilitate change. Germany has supported a number of bilateral projects in Israel, she said, and has helped the Palestinians develop their own scientific projects. Germany has also assisted them in formulating and disciplining their security forces.
Merkel, who came to Israel with a delegation of ministers to participate in a joint cabinet meeting with members of the government, said that she looked forward to hosting Israeli ministers in Germany next year when another joint cabinet meeting is due to take place.
Germany’s relations with Israel, she said, have no parallel with any other country to which Germany has ties.
In addition to a basket of Israeli flowers and herbs, Merkel took home with her yet another honorary degree. Tel Aviv University conferred an honorary doctorate on the chancellor in recognition of her role as an outstanding world leader and her consistent support for the State of Israel.
NTS Notes: There is a saying that definitely must be repeated here: "NO Man (or Woman) can serve two masters!", and this definitely goes for this shill, Angela Merkel.
I have constantly chastised the Americans and the Canadians for having leadership that answers first and foremost to evil masters in Tel Aviv. Now it seems that the Germans are just as bad.
Israel's security is definitely NOT a global issue. In fact the world should right now be doing its best to make it a global issue in having Israel labeled as a pariah state, and a detriment to the human family, for its inhuman actions against the Palestinians and all of its neighbouring countries.
Guaranteed we have not heard the last of politicians going over to Israel and pledging their allegiance to that criminal state. In fact, I bet there is a line up right behind Angela Merkel as we speak!
More to come
