In the News (Jerusalem Post): “The Social Democratic mayor of Jena, Albrecht Schröter, on Friday accused Israel of partial responsibility for the Syrian refugee crisis and called on Germany’s foreign minister to ‘show less restraint’ toward the Jewish state. …
“Schröter told the Thüringische Landeszeitung newspaper, in connection to the Syrian refugee crisis: ‘The US policy of hostility toward Islam bears its fruits.’ He called on his party and its Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier ‘to change the role of Germany in the Middle East conflict. Germany must break with restraint toward Israel as an occupying state.’ …
“The otherwise obscure mayor in Jena, a university town with nearly 110,000 residents, caused controversy in 2012 when he urged a sweeping boycott of Israeli products. He joined the anti-Israel Pax Christi Catholic aid organization in a petition calling for goods from Israel to be boycotted. Kevin Zdiara, the then–deputy representative of the German-Israel Friendship Society in Erfurt, the capital of Thuringia state, where Jena is located, said Schröter’s action recalled the Nazi slogan: ‘Don’t buy from Jews!’
“The Post sent a press query to Schröter seeking a comment.
“In 2012, Schröter said, ‘I firmly reject the malicious accusation of anti-Semitism against me.'”
My Comment: There is no doubt that all problems, from small to great, will be directed towards Israel and the Jews for one reason: The world situation depends on our unification into a single whole, and the method of unification of the world is the wisdom of Kabbalah. The people of Israel mastered this wisdom more than 3,500 years ago. So the moment that it is bad for the world, they instinctively blame the Jews. And to correct this is possible only through using the method of unity, beginning amongst the Jews themselves and after that, spreading to all the nations of the world.
