Eldad Beck: Is Germany really an obvious ally? – For years, Israel neglected its ties with the German public due to this lazy assumption. Meanwhile, the country has become the hub of Europe’s anti-Israel activity. | israelhayom.com
Germany used to be the European Union’s anchor of stability but is now sinking in political chaos. Similarly to many other Western countries, including Israel, neither the Right nor the Left can garner enough votes to receive a definite majority at the elections.
A right-wing majority is impossible as long as at least one in 10 Germans gives his vote to the populist right-wing Alternative for Germany, which is boycotted by other rightist parties due to extremist views. A solid left-wing majority is not guaranteed either, in part due to disagreements between members of the camp on crucial national matters.
