Apparently, there are those in Germany still looking for a Final Solution to the Jewish Question after all these years. Ja?
Niels Annen, a minister of state in Germany’s foreign ministry, and an official from the Iran desk at the ministry, recently attended a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Islamic Revolution. The pro-mullah-regime event was held at the Iranian Embassy in Berlin, according to Bild newspaper, and attendance by officials of the German government drew the ire of Richard Grenell, the U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Grenell told Fox News, “No one should confuse the desire to have dialogue with a celebration marking. This sends a troubling mixed message.” A German foreign ministry spokeswoman downplayed the two officials’ appearance at the Islamic gala, telling Fox it was warranted to keep “channels of dialogue” open.
While the German government officials were attending the Mullah Mash, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was addressing a rally at Tehran’s Azadi Square, at which banners reading “Death to Israel,” “Death to America,” and “40 years of challenge, 40 years of U.S. defeats” were prevalent. The latter is a reference to the 1979 assault on the U.S. embassy in Tehran by radical Islamic thugs, and the ill-fated rescue attempt-- many months later—of the hostages they took. Coupled with the much more recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi by Islamic terrorists that killed four Americans, one would have thought Germany might have refrained from sending officials of its government to an embassy in Tehran to partake in a celebration of the birth of the Islamic Republic. A “republic” that seeks the destruction of the United States and that wishes to wipe Israel of the face of the Earth.
One would have been wrong.
Germany, France and the U.K. are all attempting to circumvent and evade U.S. sanctions against the murderous Iranian regime, prompting U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence to correctly characterize this as “an ill-advised step that will only strengthen Iran, weaken the EU and create still more distance between Europe and the United States.
Nor does it appear to matter to Germany that Iran is arguably the world’s biggest violator of human rights, recently executing someone solely because he was gay. As Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) explained to FoxNews.com: “By creating mechanisms to bypass the United States’ efforts to hold Iran accountable, the EU has made it clear that they intend to support Iran despite this kind of behavior.”
America has its own anti-Semites, including the truly vile Rashida Harbi Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Abdullahi Omar (D-MN), who may or may not have temporarily married her biological brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in a successful attempt to gain him entry to the United States. (He has since been evicted and is residing in the U.K.). Intolerant leftists such as Tlaib and Omar routinely call President Trump—and conservatives in general—fascists and Nazis. This is the classic progressive tactic of psychological projection. Trump doesn’t wish to exterminate the Jews. He has done more for them than anyone in recent memory.
Perhaps there is a logical reason Germany has welcomed so many Muslim immigrants in recent years. Perhaps they are not that far removed from the Third Reich. Or won’t be in a few more years. So, German officials, go ahead and celebrate the Iranian Revolution. Grab a non-alcoholic beverage and raise your glass for a toast: “Sieg heil!”
