Yes there is a tiny minority of Jews mostly centered in Berlin and yes there have been a number of Jews from the former Soviet Union who have emigrated to Germany but most of the immigrants from Russia are not practicing Jews and do little if anything to promote a unique Jewish-German identity. The result of all this is that Germans today are able to reap the benefits of Hitler?s anti-Semitic policies while paying lip service to the need to remember. 

Young Fritz doesn’t have to be overtly anti-Semitic today because his grandfather’s generation did such a bang-up job of the Holocaust. There just aren’t that many Jews left to hate any more and besides the Germans have their old buddies the Arabs to do their hating for them. You might call the overwhelming German support for the Palestinians to be a form of anti-Semitism-by-proxy.

The German government has made cash payments to the State of Israel as well as to individual Jews to settle claims of murder torture false imprisonment slave labor and genocide. Talk to most Germans and you’ll soon discover that they think that the score has been settled between Germany and the Jews that somehow the return of just a portion of what the Germans stole from the Jews is fair recompense for the deliberate murder of millions of people.

If you think the Germans are truly sorry for what they did to the Jews think again. There’s never been an official tut mir leid offered by the Germans to the victims of the Holocaust and their descendants because that would admit culpability. Germany has paid off all claims against it without acknowledging responsibility in the same way that the Ford Motor Company engages in recalls of automobiles. It’s all done to avoid liability.

I have previously mentioned that Germans overwhelmingly support the Palestinians as opposed to the Israelis and that this overwhelming support represents a form of anti-Semitism-by-proxy. Germans may claim to be supporting the Palestinians because they think they are an oppressed people but let’s be honest — they are supporting the Palestinians and their Arab handlers because the Palestinians and Arabs share the same ideals as the Nazis.

There’s a long-standing history of German cooperation with the Arabs. In 1942 Hitler personally assured the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem that as soon as German forces conquered Great Britain the Jews in Palestine (which was then under control of the British Mandate) would be exterminated. 

We should also keep in mind that the Arab terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 atrocities did their planning in Germany. There are several reasons for this. The first is the well-known bungling and de-centralized chaos of the German federal bureaucracy. The second is that Arab terrorists can count on a substantial number of Germans who share their anti-American and anti-Semitic views. The former members of the SS and Hitler?s praetorian guards along with their neo-Nazi supporters who gather weekly in Munich beer halls made Osama bin Laden an honorary Aryan after the 9/11 attack.
