Don't get excited with German "anti-otherness"

Reader comment on item: Germany's Freiheit Party Joins the Fray

Submitted by Dan Eldar (Israel), Nov 3, 2010 at 16:46

I feel uneasy reading your report about the "historical event". Too many deja vu flashbacks of dark days in not so long time ago German history. As an Israeli , I am not flattered with their support for my state. Also the Nazis (who celebrated clandestinely their inauguration in Munchen) collaborated with the Zionist movement in the early 30's of the 20th century, as long as it suited their goals. Somehow I cannot avoid thinking that this pro-Israeli statements are just a temporary concealement of their cultural "anti-otherness. Once Germany will be Muslim Frei their support for Israel will evaporate . This German peoplehood (Ein Volk) has already demonstarted its real nature . Don't get excited with that "Ein" party.
