Germany goes after pro-Israel, anti-jihad blogger

Seems like old times: "Germans acting as henchmen for the new Nazis — who were the Germans’ henchmen in WWII." "Germany Goes After Pro-Israel Blogger," by Julia Gorin at Republican Riot, May 8:

One of the lone voices in Germany still exercising what’s left of European free speech is about to lose the last remnants of it. Anti-jihad, pro-Israel blogger Fred Alan Medforth, proprietor of the blogs Allah’s Willing Executioners and Jihad Watch Deutschland, is being sued by the German government. As he wrote me:

Mr. Medforth…offended [a] social-democratic member of the Bundestag, Nils Annen. Mr Annen is a German pro-Hamas and pro-Hizbollah politician. [But instead of] Mr. Annen suing Medforth…German justice sues Medforth [for] insulting Mr Annen… It is the German justice itself which wants a lawsuit against the German pro-Israel blogger.

That means it is a politically motivated court procedure. German justice states that [a photo published on the site] and its subtitle are insulting [to] Mr. Annen. The photo shows Hamas members presenting the Hitler salute. The text of the subtitle is : “One last greeting to Mr Annen.”

The lawsuit takes place on the 12th of May, 2009 in the district court of Gelsenkirchen.


Between this and the January incident in which German police took down an Israeli flag from the window of a private residence at the behest of a Muslim mob, what we have is a role reversal: Germans acting as henchmen for the new Nazis — who were the Germans’ henchmen in WWII. It’s nice to always have friends you can count on.
Thanks jihad Watch

I would like to know why you believe there is such a 'Nazi-like' atmosphere against Israel in Germany? Do you genuinely think that politics in Europe is so primitive that there can be no criticisms of another state, in this case Israel, without it being somehow born out of deep-rooted prejudice going back centuries?

Instead I think the word 'defensive' is applicable here. I use this term not to downplay the real enemies that exist out there against the Jewish people. The rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, coupled with Islamophobia is a terrifying sight. But the fight against the real anti-Semitic elements in Europe is hampered by the labelling of all and any criticism of the state of Israel as anti-Semitic.
