Protesters gather to the "#unteilbar" demonstration which aims to "rise up against discrimination

The Jerusalem Post reviewed a video showing two speakers who called for the “liberation of all of Palestine 48” and “we must take a stand and boycott Israel. BDS.” The slogan to “liberate all of Palestine” reverts to the founding of the Jewish state in 1948 and is widely considered a euphemism to cleanse Israel of Jews.

The German Middle East expert Thomas von der Osten-Sacken wrote an article on the website of the Austrian-based think tank Mena-Watch, with the headline “Speaker at indivisible demonstration calls for Israel’s destruction.” The protest was called #unteilbar (indivisible) by its organizers.

Demonstrators at the march hoisted symbols in support of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), according to observers and German media reports. The European Union and the US designated the PFLP a terrorist group. In 2014, PFLP terrorists murdered four rabbis in a synagogue in Jerusalem.

The speakers who call for genocidal antisemitism against Israel and BDS delivered their talks under the banner of the pro-BDS and pro-PFLP organization International Alliance.

The Germany-based International Alliance supports sympathizers of the PFLP. As a result of the Post‘s investigative series into terror finance and the BDS campaign, the US online payment service PayPal closed the account of the International Alliance in September. The Post reported on September 1 that the German bank Sparkasse Witten shut down the NGO’s account.

The Post reviewed photographs of supporters and flags from the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany at the Indivisible march. The Marxist-Leninist Party formed an alliance with sympathizers of the PFLP. In 2017, a Postexposé caused the Deutsche Bank and the Postbank to pull the plug on accounts held by the party. The Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany suffered a stinging legal defeat in August when it sought to reverse the decision by Deutsche Bank and Postbank to terminate its accounts. A court in the city of Essen ruled in favor of Deutsche Bank and Postbank. The party is seeking to delist the PFLP as a terrorist organization. The party holds an account with the bank GLS in Bochum.

The participation of left-wing extremists and radical Islamists at the Indivisible march caused Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party in Berlin to voice its opposition to the event. The Iranian-regime controlled Islamic Center of Hamburg was present at the march. The city-state of Hamburg’s intelligence agency monitors the Islamic Center of Hamburg because it is considered a threat to Hamburg’s democratic system. The Islamic Republic of Iran-dominated center in Hamburg plays a key role in the annual al-Quds Day rally in Berlin, calling for the elimination of Israel.

The Central Council of Muslims, which is an umbrella organization for groups with ties to the fascist Turkish Grey Wolves and anti-Western Islamic entities, participated in the march. The prominent German-Turkish lawyer and liberal Muslim Seyran Ates told BILD “It is a very naïve idea of tolerance when one demonstrates with people on the street who do not want tolerance.”

BILD reported that one protestor held a sign stating “The Zionists hide in the intelligence agency and lead terror in the world.”

BILD also wrote that the sign represents “classic antisemitic slogans that have nothing to do with reality.” The pro-BDS Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network was also present at the march. Three German intelligence reports and the Bundestag label boycott activity against Israel to be an expression of antisemitism.

One aim of Indivisible was to counter the outbreak of right-wing extremism, xenophobia and neo-Nazism in the East German city of Chemnitz in September.

A spokeswoman for Indivisible, Theresa Hartmann, told the Berlin-based paper B.Z that the event’s organizers rejects hatred of Israel and that the anti-Israel agitators “did not speak on the official stage but the organization has responsibility for what took place at our demonstration.”

She said Indivis distances itself from the anti-Jewish state speeches because its departs from the “joint consensus” of the demonstration. Hartmann said Indivisible expected 40,000 people. There were competing numbers regarding the turnout. The police confirmed that at least a 100,000 demonstrators participated in the march.

    Maybe, the concept of the German collective guilt is a myth and maybe leftism is synonymous to fascism !!
