…Germany also has a special obligation to the Palestinians.
Without the Holocaust there never would have been a partition of Palestine, there would have been no al-Nakba, 1967 war, and occupation.
This is not only about German responsibility for the Palestinians but rather that of all Europeans: Anti-Semitism was a pan-European phenomenon and the Palestinians continue to suffer from its direct consequences, even though they themselves are in no way responsible for it.
It is absolutely necessary that Germany and Europe accept their responsibility toward the Palestinian people. The ongoing occupation is unacceptable, both morally and strategically, and must stop.
