Die Grunen – Germany’s Greens spearhead the Zionist
Attack on BDS in Germany

Calling Green Parties in Britain & Internationally to Dissociate Themselves from Germany’s Green Party

You might expect a Green Party, of all parties, to extend a hand of solidarity to the oppressed.  If Green politics means anything it must mean opposition to racism ethno-nationalism and systematic discrimination and genocide.  But when it comes to Germany’s Green Party, it would appear that it’s a case of Green Imperialists ‘R US.

The rot set in in
2002 when the German government, which was a Green-SPD coalition, with Joshka
Fischer of Die Grunen as Foreign Minister, sent German troops into a war, the
Afghanistan War, for the first time since World War 2.
The label may read Green but the reality is racist 
But Volker Beck of Die Grunen has really outdone any of this.  Knowing full well that the Palestinians are
living in an Apartheid state and Volker Beck is no fool, he nonetheless accuses
supporters of BDS of ‘anti-Semitism’.
Volker Beck describes Al Quds day as hateful as hundreds of Berliners take to the streets in support of the Palestinians
Even worse, this rat
of a green, tries to get the German state to employ the full    panoply of its powers.  He is asking the State to begin employing
repressive and coercive measures against those who are  trying to build solidarity with an oppressed
people.  If what is happening to the Palestinians
were to happen to the Jews in Germany then Beck would be the first to cry anti-Semitism.  Or would he? 
Given that anti-Semitism and Zionism are the opposite sides of the same
coin one suspects that Volker Beck would turn a blind eye to native racism.
Germany’s racist Green  MP
The question is why this
bigot has not been criticised by either fellow Greens or other Green parties
internationally.  If the whole of the German
Green Party is now compromised and beyond salvation then we would expect Green
parties in other parts of Europe, including Britain, to speak up.
The racist Green who accuses anti-Zionist Jews of ‘anti-Semitism’
Volker Beck was responsible
for the removal of Jewish and Israeli anti-Zionists Max Blumenthall and  David Sheen from the Bundestag earlier this
year on the false grounds of anti-Semitism.
The irony is that the
German conservatives, the CDU rejected Volker Beck’s suggestion that BDS was anti-Semitic
(see below).
So we have the
position that Beck is to the right
of the Christian Democrats on the question of Palestine!

Enjoying a joke at the expense of the oppressed
 German lawmaker outraged: ‘BDS aims essentially
against Jewish Israelis and is therefore anti-Semitic’
Germany has rejected
a definition of anti-Semitism that labels the Boycott, Divestment and
Sanctions movement (BDS) as anti-Semitic, the Jerusalem Post
reported Monday.
Responding to a
legislative questionnaire released Thursday by leading Green Party MP Volker
Beck, the Merkel administration wrote that “there does not exist a general
academic definition” of anti-Semitism.
Beck, who heads the
German- Israel parliamentary group in the Bundestag, sharply criticized the
Merkel administration: “Here the federal government has cowered,” he said.
“There is no doubt of the anti-Semitic motivation within the spectrum of the
BDS campaign. BDS aims essentially against Jewish Israelis and is therefore
anti-Semitic. Whoever aggressively boycotts Israeli goods and people, should
also be viewed as anti-Semitic by the federal government.”
The German government
said it defined anti-Semitism, as “political, social, racist and religious” hostility
toward Jews.
