Martin Schulz, a German Social Democratic politician and the president of the EU Parliament, reportedly told an Israeli politician,
For me, the new Germany exists only in order to ensure the existence of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
Wow. Just wow.
The source? Avraham Burg, an Israeli businessman and Knesset member, in Haaretz of last year. So this is a little old, but I have not seen it discussed elsewhere before, and it helps to explain Grand Mutti Merkel and the German political class’s suicidal reaction to the ongoing African/Islamic invasion of Europe, which is the so-called “migrant crisis.”
Burg tell us:
Say a Big ‘Thank You’ to Martin Schulz
[. . .]
Martin Schulz, the president of the European Parliament, is a close friend of mine. On most issues connected to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict we disagree. He is closer to the Israeli mainstream, and his positions resemble those of Labor Party chairman Isaac Herzog. He once told me, during a frank and stern conversation, “For me, the new Germany exists only in order to ensure the existence of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.” He’s a brilliant intellectual and a thoughtful politician, and we don’t need to worry – he won’t give up his existential friendship so easily. [. . .]
And so, I want to say a big “thank you” to Martin Schulz, one of Israel’s last and best real friends in the world.
Now, Burg was making these comments in the context of outrage among Israeli media and politicians regarding a statement made by Schulz complaining (in an otherwise very pro-Israeli speech) that Israelis in the West Bank (Jewish settlers, to be precise) are allowed to use four times more water than are Palestinians.
Burg may have been exaggerating a bit to make his friend Schulz appear in a good light during a media crisis. But Schulz made no attempt to correct the statement reported in Haaretz. So either he, indeed, made it in private or he was happy to have it reported without correction or further comment. Schulz is then content to have the Israeli public know that the German people and their government, the Federal Republic of Germany, exist “only in order to ensure the existence of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.”
Shouldn’t the German government only exist to serve the interests of the German people, and not those of a foreign people or minority group?
Schulz is an unremarkable German Social Democratic politician. As the temporary occupant of the office of President of the EU Parliament, he has a tiny sliver of power accorded to him under the strange regime that is the European Union, the small reward for a long career of keeping his head down and going with the flow of internationalist and plutocratic orthodoxy.
As such, Schulz is as good an indicator as any of the fashions of the German and European political classes today. His insanity is also the insanity of Chancellor Angela Merkel and of the German politico-media elite generally.
Of course, the Federal Republic of Germany is not a fair or particularly “democratic” embodiment of the spontaneous will of the German people. Rather, it was founded under foreign occupation after the Second World War—after the Germans had been traumatized by the burning alive of tens of thousands of civilians, the ethnic cleansing of 9 million Germans in East Prussia, Silesia, and the Sudetenland, and the mass rape of at least 2 million German women by the Allies, the egalitarian coalition of liberals and Communists.
In response, the West Germans created an anti-nationalist dictatorship—the Federal Republic—so that never again foreign powers would have a reason to inflict such horrific and sadistic death and pain upon their people. German politicians like Schulz were raised on “anti-Nazism” and taught to believe that their people, the Germans, were the most evil people in the world and they had a duty to redeem themselves through unlimited and unreciprocated altruism towards other peoples.
The Germans were, in a sense, reprogrammed after the Second World War to destroy themselves. This program is still in operation and has even metastasized. Mainstream German “journalists” openly say they have a sacred mission to undermine nationalist and right-wing ideas, not report on them objectively or critically and fairly discuss them.
Hence, Schulz’s statement that “the new Germany exists only in order to ensure the existence of the State of Israel and the Jewish people” and Merkel’s suicidal invitation of unlimited Islamic settlement into Germany.
The case of Merkel is somewhat more puzzling. She was raised in the Communist dictatorship of East Germany, the German Democratic Republic. The Germans are a talented people, and East Germany was the most economically prosperous (which is admittedly not saying much) and rigorous dictatorship in the entire Communist bloc, with as much as five percent of the population serving as information for the Ministry for State Security (the Stasi).
Actually, the “Prusso-Stalinism” of East Germany had some successes. The native birth rate was maintained at replacement level by agressive and progressive natalist policies, including generous child benefits, a so-called “baby year” of paid post-pregnancy work leave, and propaganda pressure on all women (including the working and educated) to bear children for the Fatherland. By dent of these policies, the East German fertility rate recovered to near-replacement levels in the 1980s, levels close to notoriously baby-obsessed France (and without relying on fertile African and Muslim immigrants, of course). In contrast, in West Germany, all natalist policies were taboo because of their association with the Third Reich. Births collapsed in the 1970s to about 1.3 and have never recovered since.
The East Germans even had some eugenic policies, though they were not able to match the Czechoslovakian Communists. Prague implemented considerable financial incentives (the equivalent of 10-months pay) for voluntary sterilization of up to 2,000 women annually, massively disproportionately affecting the otherwise highly fertile gypsy population. (There was also apparently a small minority of cases of forced sterilization, for which the Czech Republic has been considering paying reparations.)
The hard school of Communism has, as a rule, helped inoculate Central and Eastern Europeans against the softer form of leftism that has become hegemonic in the West since the 1960s. Thus, the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident (PEGIDA) movement is strongest in East Germany, particularly Leipzig, where the fall of the East German Communist regime began over two decades ago.
Poles, Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks, and Romanians alike are appalled at the prospect of African or Islamic settlement imposed by the EU, and their governments are putting up various degrees of resistance. They laugh at the French for having allowing their nation to be Afro-Islamized, leading to the turning of churches into mosques, annual “carbecue” festivals, and periodic bouts of terrorist attacks killing, as the case may be, Jews, leftist cartoonists, or nice White liberals.
Merkel, however, appears to not care. She is, I suspect, merely a figurehead reflecting the consensus of a German political class that can think of no higher goals than selling a few more BMWs and being nice to foreigners to demonstrate that they’ve redeemed their past.
But when does it end? Thilo Sarrazin, a more hard-headed figure, has prophesied that it will end with the end of the German people itself.
Let us hope the Germans wake up before that happens. Europe cannot, I believe, resurrect herself without Germany. And there will be no salvation for Germany unless the current political class is removed and replaced.
Until then, the German people will be ruled by individuals like Martin Schulz and Angela Merkel. So deranged and so damaged, they believe the German nation has a sacred duty to destroy itself. Importing peoples from Africa and the Middle East, they seem coldly indifferent to those Germans whose lives have been ruined as a result.
