With Allies Like That?

Haaretz reported on heated discussion regarding German Chancellor Angela Merkel's upcoming speech to the Israeli Knesset. The rancor was over the language she would use to address the Israeli parliament. Recall Germany is an ally of the Middle Eastern democracy.

"I cannot stand to hear German in the Knesset," NRP-National Union MK Aryeh Eldad said, "my mother and father were murdered in that language."

"They are Amaleks, they are the mother of all Amaleks. The Jews must not return to be doormats," NRP-National Union MK Uri Ariel said.

Yes, the freedom and light shining from that legislative body. Somebody give those gentlemen a backrub. Maybe Dick Cheney can do it during his visit.
