Comparing Israel with Hamas is a disgusting, reprehensible act by this supposed ‘diplomat’…
The German UN ambassador sides with the Islamonazis of the Palestinian Authority over that of the Jewish State, which speaks ill of his “Never Again” commitment.
German UN ambassador makes list of worst antisemitic incidents
EXCLUSIVE: Christoph Heusgen compared Israel to terrorist entity Hamas.
The prominent human rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center ranked the German UN ambassador’s comparison between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas as number seven on its top 10 list of worst outbreaks of antisemitism and anti-Israel incidents for 2019, The Jerusalem Post can exclusively report.
The Wiesenthal Center said that “Germany is in the midst of a two-year stint on the UN Security Council. It’s UN Ambassador, Christoph Heusgen created an uproar by the number of anti-Israel votes he has cast and by his equating 130 rockets fired by terrorist Hamas at Israeli civilians in one week in March with the Jewish state’s demolition of terrorists’ homes.”
Heusgen declared: “We believe that international law is the best way to protect civilians and allow them to live in peace and security and without fear of Israeli bulldozers or Hamas rockets.”
The Wiesenthal Center noted in its justification that Bild, the largest circulation paper in Germany, “accused Heusgen in an editorial of ‘pure malice’ against the Jewish State. “
The Center continued that “Heusgen cast 16 anti-Israel votes at the UN in 2018, abstaining once. In 2019, he voted for 9 anti-Israel resolutions, including one labeling Jerusalem’s holiest sites as ‘Palestinian Occupied territory,’ while abstaining three times and opposing only one anti-Israel resolution.”
The entry concluded by stating that, “Chancellor Angela Merkel famously declared in a 2008 speech in Israel’s Knesset: ‘The security of Israel is never negotiable for me as German Chancellor.’ Seems Heusgen never got the memo.”
After the Wiesenthal Center announced in November that comments made by Heusgen are a contender for its top 10 list, a spokesperson for Germany’s foreign ministry told the Post that “We reject the antisemitism accusation.”
