War on Syria: German-israeli business

Image

From 1959 to 1967 West-Germany was a significant supplier of military equipment and arms to Israel.

In 2003 already, Germany was considered one of Israel’s closest defense allies and it sold  – for a symbolic fee – three advanced “Dolphin” nuclear-capable submarines to Israel. Germany utilized the Israeli-designed Spike Anti-Tank Missile. In the same year, Israel’s air force has held exercises with the United States and Turkey.

On November 8th, 2005, Germany confirmed that it had agreed to sell nearly 300 Leopard 2 tanks battle tanks to Turkey.

In 2008, it was revealed that Germany and Israel had been jointly developing a nuclear warning system, dubbed Operation Bluebird, in secret.

In early July 2011, Der Spiegel revealed that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her cabinet approved the delivery of more than 200 of Leopard 2A7+ model tanks to Saudi Arabia.

On November 25, 2012, Turkey’s tank fleet was made up of American M-48s and M-60s, some of which have been modernized with Israeli cooperation into M-60 Sabra tanks, plus a large contingent of  German Leopard 1s and Leopard 2s. That was hardy surprising. America and Germany are Turkey’s 2 most important geopolitical relationships.

On December 4th 2012, NATO agreed to send Patriot missiles to Turkey.

On December 14th, 2012, German MPs of the lower house of parliament voted to approve the deployment of two Patriot missile batteries and 400 troops in Turkey along the Syrian border, Reuters reported.

Israeli drones (“Herons”) are repainted for several years in the colors of Germany and used by NATO for its war in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Some German pilots that are part of NATO operations in Afghanistan are in Israel for training on special reconnaissance drones. The drones are so ‘accurately’ adjusted that numerous citizens in Afghanistan and Pakistan are killed or  seriously injured.

Germany is Israel’s largest trading partner in Europe and Israel’s second most important trading partner after the United States. Israeli imports from Germany amount to some USD 2.3 billion annually, while Israel is Germany’s fourth largest trading partner in the North Africa/Middle East region.

About kruitvat

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world. One of my blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Je travaille pour le 'Werkgroep Morkhoven', un groupe d'action qui a révélé le réseau pornographique d'enfants 'Zandvoort' (88.539 victims). Cette affaire a été couverte par les autorités. Au cours des dernières années, j'ai été vraiment choqué par la façon dont l'Occident et les pays riches veulent gouverner le monde. Un de mes blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Ik werk voor de Werkgroep Morkhoven die destijds de kinderpornozaak Zandvoort onthulde (88.539 slachtoffers). Deze zaak werd door de overheid op een misdadige manier toegedekt. Gedurende de voorbije jaren was ik werkelijke geschokt door de manier waarop het rijke westen de wereld wil overheersen.
