Wherever EU Parliament President Martin Schulz goes, he seems to irritate those pesky Jews. Yesterday he stood at the Knesset podium and spread outright lies about how Israel is stealing water from thirsty Palestinian children. Back in Nov. 2010, he was attacked by UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom who called him a fascist.
Bloom was ejected from the European Parliament in Strasbourg after calling out: “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer” – one people, one empire, one Fuehrer – as Martin Schulz was speaking.
According to BBC, Bloom said he stood by his words, describing the leader of the socialist group in the parliament as “a National Socialist.”
I think the Germans get very upset when we bring up slogans from their recent history. Why can’t we put all that behind us already, don’t we like their VWs?
