Merkel urged EU countries not to move embassies to Jerusalem

Nuclear accord and settlement labels caused Germany to deny Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The founding director of the European Coalition for Israel in Brussels, Tomas Sandell, announced in a shocking video message on Thursday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel waged a campaign to prevent Central and Eastern European countries from moving their capitals to Jerusalem to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

Sandell said The Jerusalem Post exclusive report in November stating that Merkel called Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis, to convince him to not relocate his country’s embassy to Jerusalem prompted him to go public.

Speaking from the European parliament, Sandell said, “what we have found out, something I heard for quite some time already, from Central and Eastern European countries, that would have an inclination to move their embassy to Jerusalem, this is the natural thing for them to do, is that they have received phone calls from Berlin, from Angela Merkel, the chancellor. Basically, this cannot happen under any circumstances.”

He said, "I have spoken to many Germans these last few days in Brussels. They are not aware of this, and all of them would be shocked that all of the countries in the European Union today would want to block an embassy move to Jerusalem, not only for your own country, but for other countries that have the conviction [that] this is the right thing to do, the only country to do would be Germany. This is a big shock."
He added that "this is something unprecedented. This is not the Germany we once knew. This is not the even Angela Merkel we once knew when she was elected.”

Sandell said many of Merkel’s telephone calls took place to European leaders in April when “many of the nations were seriously considering moving their embassies.”

Sandell said Merkel’s anti-Israel moves have to do with the Iran nuclear deal, which “has been very much supported by Germany, the German government.”

He added that Merkel’s move to block the relocation of embassies was also sparked by “how Germany did not block the marking of Israeli goods from disputed territories” in 2015. He said it was anticipated that Germany would stop the penalties against Israeli products. Germany instead implemented “this counterproductive measure” to punish Israeli goods, said Sandell.

Germany and the EU singled out only Israeli goods from one territorial conflict in the world to penalize the Jewish state with a labeling system on its merchandise.

He said Merkel’s policy is “of great concern for us who support the Jewish people, support the state Israel.”

He ended his video message by stating the importance of recognizing "Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Greetings Dr. Zakovich,


Merkel is an intelligent lady, however, unfortunately her party CDU is not in good shape as we speak. One of the main reasons according to some analysts is that she allowed to shelter more than 800k refugees who sought asylum in germany alone in this year.

Her opponents capitalized on it besides mrs. merkel hails originally from east germany, still perceived by the far advanced west germans as sub germans albeit they were reunified in 1991.

In conclusion as PS....

P.S. the ultra rightists parties here in Europe who by the way hate foreigners are gaining ground and you find them now in most european parliaments elected democratically.

Things which were unprecedented since the end of world war 2.

Merda the arsch-licker of wedi medhin berad,

Your immediate agame cousins constantly say:

We will only allow axum muslims to build a God's house aka mosque once the saudis allow christians to build a church in Mecca. It seems your cousins are the custodians of the over1 billion christians worldwide lol.

BTW, are there christians who live in mecca who deserve a church excluding of course the letemariams who abandoned their original names and use names as fatma or amina?

Besides, mecca is same as vatican, hence does the vatican allow muslims to build a mosque in its territory? Mind you vatican is a state within state in Italy.

Merda, back to eritrea,

Did you hear the latest authentic news that wedi medhin berad's mafia regime has sent instructions the day before yesterday to the housing authorities that all confiscated TIGRIAN properties to be returned back to their legit original owners who happen to be deQi tigray?

Am I lying? Absolutely NO. Call back home and verify.
