German Vice Chancellor Dr. Robert Habeck shows support for Israel while criticizing the International Court of Justice in The Hague for its perceived bias against Israel | JPost |

Alongside families of the hostages, Katz met the Vice-Chancellor of Germany Robert Habeck @BMWK. I thanked him for his personal and moral commitment to Israel, his resolute words against antisemitism, and for Germany's support in Israel  against South Africa's absurd complaint to the @ICJ.

I asked him that Germany will exert all possible pressure to release the hostages - until they are all returned home.


German Arms Sale Broadens Middle East Conflict

Mr. Habeck, neither the Palestinians nor the neighbouring Arab states carry the guilt of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. More European nations participated and corroborated with the WWII war crimes, razzia's and deportation of Jews and minority groups including the disabled and mentally ill.

@AliAbunimah Can't make it up: The German deputy Reichskanzler defending GENOCIDE. Germany really needs to be abolished once and for all. No more German holocausts on planet Earth.

EU Hiring to Promote Hatred of Palestinians

The seeds of genocide already grew in fertile soil, Israeli society as early as 2017 ... with EU organization in support. Incitement of genocide is a criminal act - see ICJ ruling S Africa v Israel on 26 Jan. 2024.

On July 26, the European Union Delegation to Israel posted a promotional video highlighting the importance of EU-Israel relations. The film is narrated by Avishai Ivry, an Israeli journalist identified with the Right. Ivry's involvement drew criticism from across the political spectrum.

Avishai Ivri, who stars in a promotional video produced by the EU embassy in Tel Aviv, advocates genocide of the Palestinians.

A vetting process plays no role in EU economic ties with Israel? Nor does the trampling of human rights of Palestinians ... only big bucks 💵 💵 count.

The European Union has hired an Israeli who advocates genocidal violence against Palestinians as the face of a new promotional campaign: Avishai Ivr.

A promotional campaign for excellent relationship between Israel and the EU ... is this real or AI ⁉️ Promoting genocide and wiping out Palestinians.

Right-winger promotes genocide and stars in new EU promotion campaign | 3 Aug. 2017 |

The European Union has hired an Israeli who advocates genocidal violence against Palestinians as the face of a new promotional campaign.

Avishai Ivri appears in a video the EU embassy in Tel Aviv posted on its Facebook page last month. [video has been deleted]

"The European Union. You think it's anti-Israel, right?" Ivri begins. "Let me surprise you."

Ivri then rattles off trade and tourism statistics meant to convince Israeli viewers of just how much the European Union benefits Israel. He also boasts that the EU is a customer for Israel's weapons industry, particularly drones.

The EU "are the best neighbors we have," Ivri concludes.

Supporting genocide

Ivri was a writer for Latma, a defunct Israeli sketch show [now Eretz Nehederet that reflected extreme right-wing and racist views, such as depicting migrants and refugees from African states as apes.

[Not funny and not satire ... pure racism and dehumanizing human beings ... laughable only for superior "humans" ... Beitar football club in Jerusalem connected to extreme Zionism and colonizers on Palestinian Land ... so damn funny isn't it ... in the face of death for the gentiles]

But that's only the tip of the iceberg. During Israel's November 2012 attack on Gaza that killed 174 Palestinians, Ivri advocated even more extreme violence.

[Article has a few of his ultra-right racist tweets - call to genocide - 🤣 so funny.]

Germany has banned Palestinian flags and demonstrations pro Palestine or commemorating the Nakba of 1948 ...

Germany has banned any activities in support of Palestine and a Palestinian organization called Sami-doun. The nation has been one of the strongest backers of Israel's government and policies -- incitement to hatred, dehumanization and accused of GENOCIDE -- citing historical wrongs.

Cartoon 1898 depicting barbarism and civilization

Civilization & Barbarism: Cartoon Commentary & "The White Man's Burden" (1898-1902)

Rudyard Kipling's famous poem "The White Man's Burden" was published in 1899, during a high tide of British and American rhetoric about bringing the blessings of "civilization and progress" to barbaric non-Western, non-Christian, non-white peoples. In Kipling's often-quoted phrase, this noble mission required willingness to engage in "savage wars of peace." [During the submission of Philippines, US Armed Forces used "waterboarding" to win over hearts and minds 😡]

Three savage turn-of-the-century conflicts defined the milieu in which such rhetoric flourished: the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902 in South Africa; the U.S. conquest and occupation of the Philippines initiated in 1899; and the anti-foreign Boxer Uprising in China that provoked intervention by eight foreign nations in 1900.

The imperialist rhetoric of "civilization" versus "barbarism" that took root during these years was reinforced in both the United States and England by a small flood of political cartoons--commonly executed in full color and with meticulous attention to detail. Most viewers will probably agree that there is nothing really comparable in the contemporary world of political cartooning to the drafting skill and flamboyance of these single-panel graphics, which appeared in such popular periodicals as Puck and Judge.

This early outburst of what we refer to today as clash-of-civilizations thinking did not go unchallenged, however. The turn of the century also witnessed emergence of articulate anti-imperialist voices worldwide--and this movement had its own powerful wing of incisive graphic artists. In often searing graphics, they challenged the complacent propagandists for Western expansion by addressing (and illustrating) a devastating question about the savage wars of peace. Who, they asked, was the real barbarian?

Stop barbarism of colonization ... Free Palestine 🇵🇸 🇵🇸 🇵🇸 NOW

Other European states like the UK and Dutch PM Rutte has followed suit ... Spain, Belgium, Ireland and Norway have not. 💪🏽 💪🏽

After the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 on lies, Jordan too became a target of Al Qaeda terror ... at first home grown by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, radicalized in Jordanian detention and torture.
