Angela Merkel Stands for Hezbollah

Leading the European charge against President Donald Trump is German Chancellor Angela Merkel. As you know, Merkel is Europe’s leading Obama satrap… she is working hard to counter American sanctions against Iran and to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive.

For that, and for having opened her nation’s arms to well over a million anti-Semitic refugees, she is now honored and feted by America’s leading academic institutions. Among them, Harvard University. Last week Merkel delivered a commencement address at Harvard. In it she took veiled potshots at President Trump, denouncing him for being closed minded and isolationist.

And yet, Merkel herself happily submits to Islamist terrorists. Considering that Obama’s nuclear deal funneled massive amounts of currency to Hezbollah via Iran, no one should have been surprised to discover that Merkel refuses to outlaw Hezbollah in Germany. Considering Germany’s own past treatment of Jews, you would think that she would be sufficiently sensitive to offer a word of rebuke.

When the Jerusalem Post asked her about it, she offered stone-faced silence. That paper reported:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her interior minister, Horst Seehofer, ignored an urgent plea from the country’s tiny Jewish community to outlaw the terrorist organization Hezbollah amid a shocking climate of antisemitism.

When asked on Wednesday by The Jerusalem Post numerous times if the German government – in response to a demand by the nearly 100,000-member Central Council of Jews – plans to ban the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist organization, Merkel and Seehofer refused to answer.

The president of the Council, Dr. Josef Schuster, said on Monday that “a full ban of Hezbollah’s organization has already happened in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom,” adding that “Hezbollah is heavily financed by Iran, and poses, in its entirety, a threat to the entire world.”

The US Embassy in Germany wrote on its Twitter feed on Monday: “Germany’s federal courts decided years ago that Hezbollah is a unified organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Symbols of Hezbollah are banned, why not the entire organization?”

Refusing to stand up to Iran. Refusing to stand up to Hezbollah. Coming to America to attack a pro-Israeli American president for being "isolationalist." Not what we would call a profile in courage. But, it does get you honored by Harvard… so it’s not a total loss.

I'd say, rather, that she'd bow down before and pledge allegiance to Hezbollah.

The rest of Western Europe isn't any better. And it's generally not reported, either. The Daily Mail finally exposed the rot. This is what's going on in England. The pogroms have begun.
