Yedioth Ahronoth: Germany is losing patience as its support for Israel isn’t a blank check for Netanyahu


The Israeli Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper said that Germany beginning to lose its patience against the backdrop of what is happening in Gaza, and that it considers support for Israel no longer a “blank check for Netanyahu”.

Yedioth Ahronoth pointed out that the war in Gaza is going longer and longer, and the pressure on Israel from its friends around the world is increasing, saying that 70% of Germans have begun to consider that the actions of the Israeli army in Gaza cannot be justified.

Yedioth Ahronoth also reported that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was one of the first leaders to attend Israel after October 7 to express his support for it, while Germany is the second largest arms supplier to Israel after the United States, but even in this regard it has become “There is a noticeable change”.

Yedioth Ahronoth confirmed that the Israeli Foreign Minister, Israel Katz, informed the Israeli War Cabinet that his German counterpart, Annalena Baerbock, feared that she would be brought to trial on charges of committing war crimes because of her support for Israel.

In the middle of this month, the International Court of Justice said in a statement that on the eighth and ninth of next April, it will hold hearings to consider Nicaragua’s lawsuit against Germany, due to the latter’s support for genocide in the Gaza Strip, by providing military aid to Israel, and stop funding the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

The German government has faced accusations – including from prominent Jewish residents of Germany – of allowing this guilt complex to cloud its response to the Israeli retaliation, which has caused a humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Berlin has shifted towards a more critical stance towards its ally recently, with the rise in the number of Palestinian civilian martyrs, stressing the need for Israel to adhere to international law.

A number of politicians also stated positions different from the hardline ones in open support for Israel.
