Germany Plunged Into Political Crisis After Coalition Talks Fail

The collapse of talks reflected the deep reluctance of Ms. Merkel’s conservative bloc and prospective coalition partners — the ecologist-minded Greens and pro-business Free Democrats — to compromise over key positions. The Free Democrats quit the talks late Sunday, citing what they called an atmosphere of insincerity and mistrust.“There is no coalition of the willing to form a government,” said Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, director of the Berlin office of the German Marshall Fund. “This is uncharted territory since 1949. We’re facing a protracted period of political immobility. Not only is this not going to go away soon, there is no clear path out.”Calling new elections is not a straightforward procedure in Germany.

Wary of Hackers, States Move to Upgrade Voting Systems

Last month, a panel of state, federal and private election experts completed a sweeping revision of guidelines for manufacturers of new voting equipment, the first major overhaul in a dozen years. While the guidelines are voluntary, they are endorsed by all but three states, so manufacturers effectively must meet the new standards to sell their equipment in most of the nation.Of course, threats to democracy and fair voting — such as gerrymandered election districts and disinformation campaigns on Facebook and other social media platforms — go well beyond election technology. And so far state and federal funds have often failed to match the scale and urgency of the problem. But in a time of widespread skepticism about the security of American elections, ensuring people that their votes have been counted accurately has become a pressing demand.“What’s happening is a psy-ops operation,” said Mac Warner, the West Virginia secretary of state. “That’s what the Russians are running against us now, trying to erode confidence in our democratic process […]

Is Germany Still a Haven for Israelis? After Election, Some Wonder

Were the very things that have made Germany seem so safe to so many Israelis — the national preoccupation with contrition, aversion to raw nationalism, and determination never to repeat the sins of the past — now in danger of being shunted aside by a new generation unburdened by collective guilt and determined to assert its national identity?Was Israel’s special relationship with Germany, too, now in danger?Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hastened to say that it was not, announcing Tuesday that he had spoken with Chancellor Angela Merkel. He congratulated her on winning and expressed confidence that Israel and Germany would only deepen their ties.But Mr. Netanyahu added that Israel was “concerned about the rise of anti-Semitism” on both the political right and left, and noted that “there are two different things: denying the Holocaust and denying responsibility.” He called on Ms. Merkel’s new government to “act to strengthen the forces in Germany that take on the historical responsibility.”Among the opposition, Amir Peretz, a Knesset member from the left-of-center Zionist Union, wrote on Twitter in German that the election was “a bad day for Germany democracy, with the entry of xenophobes and open anti-Semites into the Bundestag.”Yet like so much else dividing Israeli society today, the advances by the Alternative for Germany, or the AfD, as it is known, seems to provide more of an excuse for political recriminations and partisan bile than a source of common Jewish ground.On the right, there was newfound scorn, and worse, for Israeli expatriates in Germany.Aryeh Eldad, a former Knesset member and medical professor, wrote in Maariv of his revulsion at the “20,000 Israelis who moved from Israel to Germany of their own free will,” whether for “cheaper housing and cheaper cottage cheese” or to live under “the wonderful German democracy” out of a “distorted” leftism. Both groups, he said, were “emotional cripples.”“These Israelis,” Mr. Eldad wrote, “are not like the dog that comes back to eat his own vomit, but rather like the vomit that returns to the dog that spewed it.”Continue reading the main storyOn the left, there was renewed criticism for the Israeli government that so many left behind when they moved to Germany.Michael Sappir, a 29-year-old in Tel Aviv who earned a degree in linguistics at the University of Leipzig, in Saxony, and now works in high tech, said the election “makes me think twice about the idea of moving there again, both as a Jew and a leftist.”But, he added, “the situation in Germany is much, much better than here, where the governing coalition is composed mostly of parties that are intellectually akin to the AfD.” He said, “What’s considered the terrifying right wing there is on many policy points just mainstream here.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Alternative for Germany: Who Are They, and What Do They Want?

Alexander Gauland, one of the party’s lead candidates, insisted on Monday there was nothing in the party’s platform that should cause worry for Jews.PhotoLeaders of Alternative for Germany arrived for a news conference in Berlin on Monday. From right, Frauke Petry, Alice Weidel and Alexander Gauland.Credit Tobias Schwarz/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesIts leadersFrauke Petry, 42, has been the party’s leader and its face abroad.She is widely considered a relatively moderate force in the party, but she recently split with many of its members over their attempt to expel a member in the eastern state of Thuringia, Björn Höcke, who was seen as challenging Germany’s national atonement for the Holocaust and for its Nazi crimes.On Monday Ms. Petry appeared to continue her spat with other party leaders, announcing that she would not join AfD’s caucus in Parliament.The party’s leading candidates in the election, who are now expected to take charge of that caucus, were Mr. Gauland, 76, a former newspaper publisher who had run the office a Christian Democrat governor in Hesse, and Alice Weidel, 38, an economist who worked for Goldman Sachs as a banker.Despite their nationalist rhetoric, the leaders are diverse in ways that have gotten notice. Ms. Petry was, like Ms. Merkel, trained as a scientist, and is fluent in English. Ms. […]
