Lawmakers of all parties in German Parliament, except the co-ruling Social Democrats (SPD), slammed Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier for planning to step up sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program, the daily Der Tagesspiegel said Wednesday.
Legislators of the co-governing Christian Democratic Union (CDU) as well as the opposition Free Democratic Party (FDP) and Greens warned that Steinmeier’s new sanction threats would undermine any diplomatic progress in resolving the impasse over Tehran’s nuclear program.
Tehran's "Nuclear Program" is a power station, an activity allowed under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Nobody has found any evidence that Iran is covertly building nuclear weapons underneath their reactor the way Israel is known to be doing underneath Dimona.
Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is pro-Zionist, a hard core supporter of Israel, and is indeed openly of the opinion that Germany's role on the Holocaust means that present day Germans (who had not even been born when WW2 happened) must do what Israel says.
But here is the problem. Israel was saying that Iraq was also secretly building nuclear weapons underneath the power station at Osirik, as Israel does underneath Dimona. Israel bombed Osirik. Following the 2003 invasion international inspectors looked at the riuns and confirmed that there had never been any secret weapons laboratory at Osirik, as Israel has underneath Dimona.
So, why should present day Germans, most of whom were not alive during WW2 and therefore do not bear any responsibility for what happened under the Nazis, obey the will of a foreign power who is so often totally wrong as it flings death and destruction onto its neighbors?
