The very same officials will also claim that they’re not antisemitic in the least….
While they’re at it, why don’t they celebrate the founding of the Third Reich as well?
GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTRY CELEBRATES IRAN’S ISLAMIC REVOLUTION IN BERLIN
The German mass circulation daily Bild reported on Tuesday that foreign ministry state secretary Niels Annen, from the social democratic party, and an official from the Iran desk at the ministry attended the pro-mullah regime event.
Bild wrote the foreign ministry said it sent officials to the Iranian embassy to keep “dialogue channels” open. Germany has long been Iran’s most important trade partner within the EU.
The foreign policy spokesman of the Free Democratic Party in the Bundestag, Bijan Djir-Sarai told the Bild
“The fact that a representative of the Federal Government participates in celebrations of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution of the Iranian embassy is embarrassing.” He added “A certain distance would have been helpful here. It is a mystery to me which message the Federal Government wanted to set with this performance. ”
The Jerusalem Post sent a media query to German foreign minister Heiko Maas regarding his ministry’s presence at the pro-Iran regime celebration. Maas, a member of the social democratic party, claims he went into politics “because of Auschwitz.”
German Jews accuse Maas of failing to internalize the lesson of the Holocaust with his robust support of Iran’s regime.
