Hamas Minister Compromises Germany’s PositionNo, not the Hamas Minister compromises Germany’s position, the Germans are very well able to do that all by themselves. Israel Hasbara Committee has yet to learn that the proud German tradition of working together with murderous Palestinian Arab scum has to be broken yet.

(IHC News, 18 May 2006) Germany made very clear its policy about the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority. It would not support or meet with any representative of the PA as long as they maintained their position not to recognize the State of Israel and not to honor past commitments of the previous Abbas-led PA.
Last month the EU decided to suspend all aid to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority until Hamas changes its position. This is the only way Hamas can effectively be pressured even though Arab countries and Iran have claimed, or Hamas has claimed on their behalf, that they will cover the Hamas-led Palestinian budget shortfall which, for all intents and purposes, is almost the entire budget. At present, Hamas is having great difficulty paying the salaries of 165,000 government employees. The Palestinian Authority has little or no income outside of aid money of one kind or another and this situation probably will not change in the near future. (The total population of the Palestinian Authority is around three million persons including children).
Representatives of the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority are desperately looking for financial aid to prevent collapse of the Authority. They are eager to talk to anyone willing to talk to them. However, their positon is untenable. They want to maintain their policy of one day destroying the State of Israel and, at the same time, keep the aid money flowing to enable them to progress with such plans.
Sweden, a member of the twenty-five member EU, broke ranks with all other EU members to issue a visa to Palestinian Refugees Minister Atef Odman enabling him to travel freely around the EU countries of Europe and enter Germany against that country’s express wishes in order to meet with a German government official. This reportedly greatly annoyed German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
If nations do not maintain their current position on Hamas and gradually agree to recognize Hamas, then the result will be that they will have, in effect, agreed to recognize the policies of Hamas that are to destroy the State of Israel. Understandably, this would be a great embarrassment to the Republic of German that has worked so hard to try to right the wrongs of the past. It would undermine all of Germany’s efforts over the past sixty years.
Hadj Amin el Husseini, self-appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, mass murderer of Jews, on Hitler's payroll since 1937, accomplice of Hitler in the Holocaust, honoured guest in Berlin during WWII (all expenses, hookers included, paid), founder of the SS Handzar division and post-war co-founder and President of the Arab League.
As early as 1933, Arab Nazi political groups started to rise their ugly heads throughout the Middle East, for example Young Egypt, led by Muslim Brotherhood member Gamal Abdel Nasser, later Egyptian President. Young Egypt’s political slogan "One Folk, One Party, One Leader" is a direct translation from the German.
1937 Hadj Amin el Husseini visits the German Consul in Jerusalem. He meets among others Adolf Eichmann, whose sense for keeping "Aryan" company must have a wee bit selective, to discuss "the Jewish question". Since then, he will receive financial and military aid from Nazi Germany. He spends the war safe and sound in Germany, all expenses paid by the Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt).
1942, Husseini intervenes personally with the Nazi High Command to refuse an offer by the Red Cross to exchange 10,000 Jewish children for German prisoners of war. The offer is refused and the children die in the gas chambers.
1943, he creates the Handzar Division of Muslim Soldiers in Bosnia, which is, with 26,000 soldiers, to become the largest division of the Third Reich military and participates actively in the genocide of the Serbians, Gipsies and Jews in Bosnia. The Muslim soldiers pledge allegiance to Nazi regime in an official statement drawn up by Heinrich Himmler. During the same year, Husseini is made "Prime Minister" of a Pan-Arab Government created by the Nazi regime. His headquarters are in Berlin.
Husseini and Himmler grow on each other. At his insistence. the "Mufti" is even given a private tour of Auschwitz death camp by Himmler, where he can see first-hand the murder of Europe’s Jews.
Heinrich Himmler, obviously another Nazi with a rather selective "Aryan" identity, informed Nazi chief propagandist Josef Goebbels: "[I] have nothing against Islam because it educates the men in this division for me and promises them heaven if they fight and are killed in action. A very practical and attractive religion for soldiers."
It was Himmler, too, who established and funded the "Islamische Zentralinstitut" in Dresden, with Husseini as head. The purpose was to create a generation of Muslim leaders that would continue to use Islam as a carrier for Nazi ideology into the 21st century.
Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt that the German Members of the Bundestag -- in the end, it were three lawmakers, one Social Democrat (SPD) and two Free Democrats (FDP) not one government official, whom the Hamas delegate met -- had neither genocidal intentions nor do they even know of the history I briefly sketched above. Yet it is more than just a, as SPIEGEL ONLINE dubbed it, "diplomatic slip-up".
As Henryk M. Broder puts it in his inimitable way:
What makes three MPs, against all decisions of the Federal Government and the EU talking to a Hamas-man and thus sanitising a "government" that may have been democratically elected, but in spite of that, or maybe exactly therefore, want to remain a terrorist gang?The outstanding German blog Lizas Welt knows more:
If it wasn't admiration for a gangster in pinstripes, than it is sheer and undiluted bumbledom. What the USA, Russia, the EU, France, Germany, Egypt and a couple of other governments couldn't manage -- the three Members of the German Bundestag will fix it, namely to convince the Hamas to renounce terror and to recognise Israel.
Next, Addicks, Königshaus and Dzembritzki will meet representatives of the Medellin cartel to convince the drug lords only to deal in medicinal herbs in the future and transfer their profits to the Salvation Army.
By the way: The FDP-MPs Königshaus and Addicks are members of the Deutsch-Israelische Gesellschaft (DIG), but that is not contradictory in itself. Many people join that organisation to acquire a political clean bill ["Persilschein" used to be called the denazification certificate so freely issued after the war, because it "whitewashed" people, "Persil" being the household name for washing powder in German.] to fall foul of Israel even more effectively -- after all, it's only in the best interest of the Jew state if one talks to its enemies. And Dzembritzki is, among other things, chairman of the parlamentarian sub-committee for the United Nations, Unterausschuss "Vereinte Nationen", member of the parlamentarian committee for foreign affairs, Auswärtiger Ausschuss, deputy-chairman of the parlamentarian committee for international economical cooperation and development with the key-topic "Politics instead of War", "Politik statt Krieg", and speaker for the Forum "SPD & Religions of the SPD Berlin.Happy inter-religious dialogue!
But seriously, "After all, it's only in the best interest of the Jew state if one talks to its enemies" sez Liza. Isn't that another classical case of what Wolfgang Pohrt called the "Michel Syndrome"?
Pohrt coined the famous phrase that the Germans, as former perpetrators, feel that it is their duty to "stand with praise and censure at Israel's side as ethical probation officer to keep the victim from committing a second offense." He wrote, too, that the Germans with their obsession with responsibility ("Verantwortungsfimmel") resemble a convicted child molester who thinks he is specifically qualified for a job as kindergarden teacher.
And, of course, compare notes with other child molesters.
