The comparison between Germany’s relationship with Israel is a nice contrast.
Imagine for a second that the current German president + parliment paid his respects at a church in which Adolf Hitler’s remains are entombed. And let’s also imagine, for a second, that this church is the focal point of a very strong, mainstream neo-Nazi movement… with a web presence that glorifies the Fuhrer’s Third Reich. Imagine, again, that the regular attendees of this church happen to be former SS who goose-step (in full SS gear) to the front door on Hitler’s birthday, waving copies of Mein Kempf.
Imagine that leading members of the German government continued to deny allegations of mass killings in WW2 concentration camps. That there might have been some Jewish civillians killed, but the dead were primarily military-aged men participating in the underground resistance. That what occurred in the concentration camps were legitimate acts of war. That the vast majority of the Nazi Germany military machine, with the possible exception of Hitler, were only heroes who sacrified their lives to defend the Fatherland.
I personally wouldn’t be “surprised” if young Israelis wanted to take a $hit on Deutschland, either.
