Outrage in Germany, Nobel Laureate Gunter Grass has, once again told the truth about Israel being the greatest threat to world peace.
Gunter Grass, Germany's most famous living author and the 1999 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, sparked outrage in Germany on Wednesday with the publication of a poem, "What must be said," in which he sharply criticizes Israel's offensive approach towards Iran.
Once again, it is the artist rather than the politician, who tells the truth as it is. Once again it is the Artist rather than the academic who speaks out.
"Why did I wait until now at this advanced age and with the last bit of ink to say: The nuclear power Israel is endangering a world peace that is already fragile?" Wrote Grass.
In the poem, published by Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper and other European dailies on Wednesday, Grass also calls for an...
"...unhindered and permanent monitoring of Israel's nuclear potential and Iran's nuclear facility through an international entity that the government of both countries would approve."
Israel and some German Jewish prominent voices were quick to react. The Israeli Embassy in Berlin issued a statement offering its own version of "What must be said."
"What must be said is that it is a European tradition to accuse the Jews before the Passover festival of ritual murder," the statements reads.
Pretty outrageous, don't you think? In the open, Israel together with its supportive Jewish lobbies (AIPAC, AJC), are pushing for a new global conflict. Yet, shamelessly the embassy defies criticism tossing in the air the old blood libel. The appropriate timely question here is why Israel and AIPAC are pushing for a world war and a potential nuclear conflict just before Passover? Can't they just wait for another Yom Kippur (atonement day)?
The Israeli Embassy continues...
"In the past, it was Christian children whose blood the Jews allegedly used to make their unleavened bread, but today it is the Iranian people that the Jewish state allegedly wants to annihilate."
Isn't it really the case? Every military expert suggests that an Israeli pre-emptive attack on Iran could escalate into a nuclear conflict. If anything, Grass tries like others, including your truly, to prevent Israel from celebrating its lethal symptoms once again.
The Israeli embassy noticed though that...
"Israel is the only state in the world whose right to exist is openly doubted."
Correct, and so it should be. Israel is a racist, expansionist state; it doesn't have room amongst nations.
