"Moral Vacuum" Exposed - European Leaders Cower In The Face Of China

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute

Australia and the United States are leading a campaign for an independent inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Senior officials in both countries are seeking to determine if the virus originated in nature or in a Chinese laboratory. They are also calling on the Chinese government to account for its handling of the initial outbreak in the city of Wuhan.

While Europeans cower in the face of Communist China, they have found time to issue threats against the only democracy in the Middle East. On April 30, eleven European ambassadors to Israel warned Jerusalem of "severe consequences" if it goes ahead with plans to annex parts of the West Bank.

In a lengthy essay published by Die Welt, Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer, Europe's largest publishing company, argued that the time has come for Europe to choose between the United States and China:

"Once a treatment for the virus has been found, the debates about shutdown and easing restrictions have passed, and the recession has reared its ugly head, nothing less than the world order itself must be clarified. Or to be more specific: the matter of alliance. Where does Europe stand? On the side of the US or China?...

"We increasingly hear words of admiration in Europe about the speed and efficiency of the Chinese market economy, the rigorous nature of its crisis management. All the time gladly ignoring the fact that China's successes rest on a highly perfected system of digital surveillance that translates the perversions of the KGB and Stasi into the 21st century....

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this article very interesting, in both its characterisation of China, and of Israel.

Warfare, in this part of the 21st century, can be very much achieved without a single bomb being dropped, and that has to do with hitting an economy hard, with sanctions, and pressure on other countries to avoid buying anything from the targeted country; we are seeing that now from the standpoint of the US governmental pressure on China to admit, whether or not it truly happened, that it was the origin of Covid 19, and it was not forthcoming with enough information to "save" Americans who have either been sickened by, or died from, this virus.

For the authors of this article not to understand that such a Chinese "surveillance/social credit" system is being actively pursued by the US government and beyond, and will be employed just as quickly as the US Deep State believes it can "softly" install it, is amazingly naive.

And as to Israel being "the only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Please,folks, give me a break here!!!

How can one talk of a democracy, when one group of people consistently has its civil rights violated 24/7, gets shot at, has the limbs blown off their kids and generally assassinated for no bloody reason whatsoever, other than this group being "the other"?!?

How can you talk of a "democracy" with a government enmeshed in such a depth and history of corruption and paranoia which, if reasonably documented, would fill computer disks from here to eternity, for a country which is only 72 years old?!?

Because unless and until Palestinians have full voting rights in the "Eretz Israel" which is being created, through this brisk annexation coming about in the West Bank in July of this year, there is no justice, and no democracy in the State of Israel, period, end of discussion.

And Palestinian "leadership" (or what passes for it) needs to get its collective act together, to advocate, immediately, for this to become the case, when this annexation becomes a fait accompli.
