Even though there is a large number of Germans who are fed up with the Jewish control of their country, they still have plenty of traitors in their midst. Here we have a German judge claiming that anti-Zionism is the same thing as anti-Semitism during a trial of a Turkish guy who lives in Germany.

The judge is basically saying that criticism of Israel is the equivalent to hating Jews. But so what if it is? Hating Jews is one’s right as a free human being.

I’d like to know why this German judge loves Jews so much. That’s a rhetorical statement more than anything else because if he came out against the Jews he would no longer be a judge in Germany.

From Israel Today:

A German judge last week equated condemnation of Zionism with anti-Semitism, undercutting the arguments of many who claim that hostile criticism of Israel is not the same as hating the Jews.

In judging the case of 24-year-old Taylan Can, a German citizen of Turkish decent known for is anti-Israel activism, Judge Gauri Sastry refused to allow the defendant to hide behind the notion of legitimate criticism of the Jewish state.

Can was ultimately convicted for incitement against an ethnic minority for his role in a July 18, 2014 demonstration in Essen, Germany, where he and others used the term “Zionist” to stir up anger against Israel and local Jewish residents.

At his hearing, Can insisted he was not an anti-Semite, and was merely opposed to the policies of the State of Israel. But Judge Sastry was having none of it. Die Weltquoted her as clarifying that “‘Zionist’ is the language of anti-Semites, the code for ‘Jew.’”

The ghost of Nazi Germany still haunts the Germans. Though they may hate Jews [can't change the leopard's spots and that sort of thing] they never will allow anyone to publicly express their hatred because . . .

"One's rights end where the rights of another person begin."

So IMO, the judge's ruling was fair. Since Israeli's are Jews, criticizing the Jewish state is tantamount to fomenting hatred against all Jews. In any case do people even notice a difference? A Jew is a Jew. If you can call him a Zionist and get away with it . . .
