The Germans Have a Jewish Problem

The Geo Politicos have the scoop.

German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder gave a speech at the annual world’s largest book fair in Frankfurt, Germany this weekend. Every year, the fair emphasizes literary work from a specific country or region, and this year’s guests of honor came from the Middle East, or more specifically, the Arab world. In his opening remarks, the Chancellor highlighted the underlining theme of this year’s fair, stating that "If understanding, openness, tolerance and also curiosity reign, it will be impossible to drive a wedge between the Arab and the Western world." As evidenced by the choice of other speakers at the festivities, Jews and Israelis were not an intended beneficiary of the chancellor’s remarks...

Europe is going back to its bad old ways.
