It is now almost 77 years since the end of World War 2 and fall of what Adolf Hitler used to proudly call his Nazi empire the “Third Reich”, yet Germany, if not the whole of Europe, seems to be still under occupation of the ‘victorious’ US.
The German authorities might deny their subservience to Washington despite the fact that for the past seven decades they have been burdened with the guilty conscience of the alleged massacre of Jews, and to make amends for the myth of the holocaust they have to kowtow to the dictates of the illegal Zionist entity, which last Sunday told Berlin not to allow the holding of any road rally by the people of Germany on the anniversary of Naqba – the 1948 catastrophe that displaced a million Palestinians from their homes to make way for Israel’s illegitimate birth.
The claim to be independent of America turned out to be a mere claim, when last Friday the German border police at Frankfurt airport violated the sovereignty of the European Union by detaining a top EU official and his team returning from a high level mission to the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Deputy Secretary-General of the European External Action Service (EEAS), Enrique Mora, who has been coordinating talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal from which the US illegally withdrew, found himself detained and his phone and passport seized, even though it was diplomatic.
He was not the lone diplomat detained by the German police nor was it a case of mistaken identity, since his colleagues, also holding diplomatic documents – EU Ambassador to the UN in Vienna Stephan Klement and Bruno Scholl, the head of the EU’s Iran Task Force – were detained as well at Frankfurt airport and their passports and phones taken away.
Moreover, the three diplomats who were returning from an official EU mission to Iran were questioned for about 40 minutes before being released and allowed to continue their onward journey to the EU headquarters in Brussels, as admitted by the German police, but without any apology.
The German police gave no explanation for the detention, despite Mora asking them several times. Strangely, the EU headquarters in Brussels failed to lodge any protest with Berlin for the undiplomatic behaviour, and merely said the “matter was over.”
A highly embarrassed Mora later released the following tweets: “Retained by the German police at the Frankfurt airport on my way to Brussels, back from Tehran. Not a single explanation.”
“We were kept separated; refusal (by the Germany police) to give any explanation for what seems a violation of the Vienna Convention.”
The undiplomatic incident, which was certainly not a goof by the German police and failed to raise any eyebrows in the official circles of Berlin, raises a host of questions, especially about Germany’s claim and also of the EU to be independent of the US, or of not bowing to Israel’s pressures concerning relations with Iran.
It is obvious that the tail which vehemently wags the poor dog, neither wants the US fulfill its broken commitments and return to the nuclear accord, nor likes to see the so-called “big three” European regimes (Germany, France, and Britain) to coordinate efforts for a solution to the crisis created by themselves, which is now hurting their fragile economies.
This is evident by the reluctance of Mora and his colleagues and the refusal of the German police – which sadly takes direct orders from Tel Aviv rather from Berlin – to divulge the questions posed to the detainees and the reason for the undiplomatic scanning of their phones to record any undisclosed messages exchanged with Iranian officials.
One can easily guess the sorry state of political and economic affairs in the West, which is utterly incapable of either reaching any durable agreement with the Islamic Republic or of resolving the worsening crisis in Palestine – or for that matter ending the Israeli-engineered Saudi-UAE war upon Yemen.
Thanks to the far-sighted principles set by the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), and the foresight of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Iran very well knows the game-plan of its enemies and thus the necessity of firmly adhering to the redlines regarding any deal.
Meanwhile, we wish all the best for the German people as well as for the people of all European countries, to strive for independence in their affairs from undue American meddling that has pushed Ukraine into a disastrous war, and made them humiliating hostages to the illegal Zionist entity’s myth of the holocaust.
