A View of German Anti-Semitism from a non-Jew
Young Fritz doesn’t have to be overtly anti-Semitic today because his grandfather’s generation did such a bang-up job of the Holocaust. There just aren’t that many Jews left to hate any more, and besides, the Germans have their old buddies, the Arabs, to do their hating for them. You might call the overwhelming German support for the Palestinians to be a form of anti-Semitism-by-proxy.. . .
First and foremost is the realization that, while not all Germans are anti-Semitic, there is an anti-Semitic tendency within German culture that extends back to the time of Martin Luther. Germans are instinctively anti-Semitic in the same way that Americans are instinctively freedom loving. Anti-Semitism has been and unfortunately remains the default ideology of the German people. All things being equal, Germans will instinctively support the enemies of the State of Israel. Therefore, America will need to monitor closely and be ready and politically willing to intervene at a moment’s notice in German affairs when it appears that Germany is back-sliding into anti-Semitism.
