A scathing editorial was published last week from Bild, Germany’s newspaper. They accused UN Ambassador Christoph Heusgen of betraying Chancellor Angela Merkel’s security pledge to Israel who compared the terrorist group Hamas to the Jewish State.
Piatov concluded his editorial: “When Islamist terrorists fire rockets at Israeli children,” the German government should be “crystal clear about standing on Israel’s side.”
Germany voted 16 times at the UN in 2018 to condemn Israel.
In mid-March, the German parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of Merkel’s anti-Israel voting record at the UN. The vote in the Bundestag was from a total of 626 MPs participating. An eye-popping 408 voted to reject a pro-Israel resolution to urge Merkel to change her anti-Jewish state voting pattern, while 155 urged its acceptance. A total of 63 MPs abstained.
