GERMANY Over 33 000 Israelis Have Become German Citizens Since 2000
Sabba – What are the chances that these Israeli are among the so-called ‘Muslim’ rapists and ‘Muslim’ terrorists that are creating and spreading chaos all over Germany? Could this be the real reason why the 100% jewish owned German media insist on keeping their names and and identity hidden like a secret? Remember, many of them look like Arabs, many of them have similar names as Arabs and, an untrained western Gentile eye will never be able to make the difference.
Just as an example, in the country next door – France – the head of the Jewish community there and arch-zionist is called KALIFAT, sometimes spelt KHALIFAT which is rendered in English as CALIPHATE…
YNET – Between 2000 and 2015, 33,321 Israelis acquired German citizenship, with 4.79 percent renouncing their Israeli citizenship in the process, according to data published by the German Bundestag in response to a question submitted by the Greens.
The figures are based on data from Germany’s Central Register of Foreign Nationals (Ausländerzentralregister, or AZR) and appear in a telegram that was sent by the Israeli Embassy in Germany to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem.
The peak year of Israelis acquiring German citizenship during that period was 2006, when 4,313 succeeded in the process, with 97 percent being required to renounce their Israeli citizenship. As of November 30, 2016, 13,289 Israelis reside in Germany, according to authorities there.
The Greens’ question was submitted by parliamentarian Volker Beck, President of the Bundestag’s German-Israeli Parliamentary Friendship Group. The group has been working recently to exempt Israeli citizens from the requirement to renounce their other citizenship as a condition to their becoming Germans.
Many Israelis who have lived in the Federal Republic for years or who are married to German citizens have refrained from taking advantage of their right to naturalize due to German law requiring that they renounce other citizenships that they hold.
Those who are exempt from the requirement are those who obtain German citizenship by virtue of their being descendants of former Germans who were denaturalized under the Nazi Regime. Indeed, according to the German report, 95 percent (31,722) of the Israelis who became Germans during the examined period were descendants of Germans whose citizenship had been stripped by the Reich Citizenship Law and thus maintained their Israeli citizenship.
In addition to descendants of the Nazis’ victims, Germany also permits dual citizenship for citizens of European Union member states, as well as Switzerland. Beck is seeking to have Israel added to that list, which is what led to his question to the Bundestag. However, the German government replied that it does not intend to modify the citizenship laws.
In an interview with the German-Israeli Spitz Hebrew magazine, Beck explained that he found it senseless that senior politicians in his country frequently speak of the “special relationship” and “deep friendship” with Israel but refuse to support permitting dual citizenship to Israelis. (The Greens officially oppose the ban on dual citizenship and have sought to have this prohibition overturned.)
Beck told Spitz that he became aware of the problem when he heard again and again from Israelis who live in Germany for years, some of them even involved in politics, who elect not to naturalize and thus are unable to vote in elections because they don’t want to renounce their citizenship with the Jewish state.
Beck said that he completely understood the difficulty, be it founded in practicality or sentimentality.
Israeli children (as with all other foreign children in Germany) who receive German citizenship at birth from a German parent and Israeli from the other are not required to choose between the citizenships and are allowed to keep them both.
Israeli diplomat: We want Germany to have guilty feelings over the Holocaust so it can help Israel
AUGUST 14, 2015 57 VIEWS
Commentary —The use of the Holocaust card by Jewish supremacists to get everything from immunity from legitimate criticism to advance weapons systems for Israel has been standard practice for the past seven decades, but rarely is there such a crass admission of its exploitation. The following article from the Israeli newspaper Haaretz quotes the Israeli Embassy spokesman in Berlin as telling Germany that Israel is “working to preserve the German guilt feelings.”
So it’s not just that the Emperor is naked and nobody is saying anything. The Emperor is calling to the world to look at his nakedness and then proceeding to molest our wives and daughters and nobody is saying anything. And the sad part is that all we need to do is speak out and then so much of their power just evaporates. We don’t have to watch their media. We don’t have to vote for their candidates. We don’t have to volunteer to fight their wars.
In off-the-record comment to journalists, embassy spokeswoman Adi Farjon said Israel had no interest in full normalization of relations with Germany.A spokeswoman for the Israeli embassy in Berlin recently told Israeli journalists it was in the country’s interest to maintain German guilt about the Holocaust, and that it isn’t seeking full normalization of relations between the governments.Embassy spokeswoman Adi Farjon made the comments in a closed briefing session with journalists at the embassy.“We were all in shock,” said a female journalist present at the briefing. “The spokeswoman clearly said it was an Israeli interest to maintain German guilt feelings. She even said that without them, we’d be just another country as far as they’re concerned.”Others present at the event confirmed the journalist’s account.Some added that the Israeli ambassador himself, Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, was present for some of the briefing, as were other embassy workers who don’t speak Hebrew. Another journalist commented, “It was so awkward. We couldn’t believe our ears. We’re sitting there eating peanuts, and behind the spokeswoman there are two German women sitting there who don’t understand a word of Hebrew – and the embassy staff is telling us they’re working to preserve the German guilt feelings and that Israel has no interest in normalization of relations between the two countries.”The Israeli foreign ministry denied the allegations and said the diplomat were falsely accused of saying these things.This year is a special one for the German and Israeli governments, with Berlin and Jerusalem marking 50 years since the start of diplomatic relations between the two countries. German support for Israel also appears to be at an all-time high – particularly in light of Israel’s ongoing battles with the European Union over labeling of products from West Bank settlements and its troubled diplomatic standing in the world.This week, as part of the 50th-anniversary celebrations, Bundestag President Norbert Lammert visited Israel. In his speech to the Knesset on Wednesday, Lammert said that the “intensive friendship between our two countries is a historic miracle.” In his speech, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein praised the special and extraordinary” relations of the two countries, calling Germany “a true friend of Israel.”
On Sept. 20, 1945, three months after the end of World War II, Chaim Weizmann, on behalf of the Jewish Agency, submitted to the governments of the US, USSR, UK, and France, a memorandum demanding reparations, restitution, and indemnification due to the Jewish people from Germany for its involvement in the Holocaust. He appealed to the Allied Powers to include this claim in their own negotiations for reparations with Germany, in view of the “mass murder, the human suffering, the annihilation of spiritual, intellectual, and creative forces, which are without parallel in the history of mankind.”
Due to the deadlock, and later interruption of the Allies’ negotiations for reparations, no further development in Weizmann’s request took place until March 12, 1951, when Israel’s foreign minister Moshe Sharett submitted a note to the four Allied governments which claimed global recompense to the State of Israel of $1.5 billion from the German Federal Republic (West Germany). Sharett’s claim was based on the financial cost absorbed by Israel for the rehabilitation of those Jews who escaped or survived the Nazi regime and came to the newly created Jewish state. The financial expense incurred by Israel in the absorption of 500,000 Nazi victims could be covered at $3,000 per capita.
As a result of unofficial preliminary contacts, West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer declared on September 27, 1951, that his government was ready to compensate Israel for material damage and losses and to negotiate with Israel and with representatives of Diaspora Jewry for other reparations. The following month, the Jewish community established the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany (Claims Conference) in New York, presided over by Nahum Goldmann, to help with individual claims.
In Israel, the Knesset fiercely debated whether to accept the reparations from Germany over a three day period in early January 1952. Menachem Begin and the Herut Party were among the most vocal members of the opposition, who considered the reparations offer as blood money. By the end of the debate, a small majority of 61-50 succeeeded in passing the resolution to enter into direct negotiations with West Germany over specific reparations amounts. Outside the Knesset, thousands of Israeli’s protested and rioted the decision, at times even pelting the plenum building with stones, leading the police to use tear gas to disperse the crowds.
Following Israel’s approval of the resolution, a West German delegation headed by Professor Franz Boehm met with the Israeli delegation led by Giora Josephthal and Felix Eliezer Shinnar at The Hague in March 1952. The delegation of the Claims Conference, headed by Moses Leavitt, was put in charge of negotiations on individual claims for indemnification. At the negotiations, Israel reduced her claim of $1.5 billion against the whole of Germany to $1 billion against West Germany alone while reserving the right to claim the balance from East Germany – which neither attended the negotiations nor ever provided compensation.
On September 10, 1952, after six months of negotiations, an agreement on reparations between Israel and West Germany was signed in Luxembourg by Sharett and Adenauer. The agreement was ratified and came into effect on March 21, 1953, after a delay caused by the Arab states’ efforts to prevent ratification.
Under the agreement, West Germany undertook to pay a total of $845 million: $100 million earmarked for allocation by the Claims Conference and the remainder to Israel. Direct compensation would be paid in annual installments over a period of 14 years (between April 1, 1953, and March 31, 1966). The money to Israel was split – 30 percent was to pay for Israel’s crude oil purchases in the United Kingdom and with the balance of 70 percent Israel was to buy ferrous and nonferrous metals, steel, chemical, industrial, and agricultural products from Germany.
The agreement was carried out by West Germany government both in letter and in spirit and the goods bought and imported under the agreement represented between 12 and 14 percent of Israel’s annual imports over the decade, thus making an important contribution to Israel’s growing economy.
In 1988, the German government allocated another $125 million for reparations, enabling remaining Holocaust survivors to receive monthly payments of $290 for the rest of their lives. In February 1990, before its unification with West Germany, East Germany admitted for the first time that it was also responsible for war crimes committed by the German people during World War II and agreed to pay reparations.
In 1999, in response to the filing of numerous class action lawsuits in American courts, the German government and German industry agreed to compensate Jews and non-Jews specifically for slave and forced labor they performed for German industry during the war. Among the German industries that came under the lawsuits were Deutsche Bank AG, Siemens, BMW, Volkswagen, and Opel. In return for the dismissal of all such lawsuits and the guaranteeing German industry “legal peace” from any such further litigation, the German government created a foundation – “Remembrance, Responsibility and the Future” – with assets of approximately $5 billion. Slave and forced laborers still alive at the time of the settlement could apply to receive a lump sum payment of between $2,500 and $7,500 from the foundation; in all, over 140,000 Jewish survivors from more than 25 countries received payments. Final payments from the Foundation were to be made by September 2006.
