Ben-Dror Yemini: The gate of Change – Op-ed: Lighting up Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate with an Israeli flag following Sunday’s terror attack in Jerusalem is a small step in a consciousness changing process and an important show of solidarity. | Ynetnews
Lighting up Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate with an Israeli flag is a form of ceremony. Israel is entering the family of nations. Until now, in the Western public opinion and mainly in the elites’ opinion, Israel has been seen as the cause of terror. That has been expressed occasionally in editorials, or by figures such as former US President Jimmy Carter and Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, following the terror attacks in Europe. The Israeli flag on one of the most important symbols in Germany somewhat changes the picture.
