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.

For Vulnerable Older Adults, a Harrowing Sense of Being Trapped

Officials from this state’s Health and Human Services Commission said that about 4,500 residents have been evacuated from more than 130 Texas nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The storm has killed at least 46 people; at least 9 of them were 65 years or older. The eldest was 89.And in the aftermath of Harvey, the challenges of keeping older and disabled people healthy have been enormous.More than 100 dialysis centers in the regions are closed, and in some cases patients have not been able to get transportation to the few that are open. Patients are separated from caregivers by flooded highways. And at the downtown convention center here that shelters thousands of people, a crew of volunteer doctors has been treating evacuees around the clock.But people have been showing up with waterlogged pills that have turned to a sludgy mix, if they have them at all.Dr. Shital Patel, a professor at Baylor College of Medicine who helped in the medical clinic at the convention center, said that many of the patients she saw had spent four or five days without taking medication or checking their insulin.PhotoA Houston Housing Authority residence for older adults, where the water rose nearly five feet.Credit Julie Turkewitz/The New York TimesOn Thursday, Danny Graves, 62, shuffled across the center in a yellow T-shirt that read: Built For It. He spoke low and slow and said he was bipolar and schizophrenic and normally has a caretaker who cooks and helps him shower. But she left before the storm.When the water came in, it rose to Mr […]

Protesters Flood Streets, and Trump Offers a Measure of Praise

One monument supporter, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap, declined to give his real name but identified himself as Wiggz, a 32-year-old Dallas resident.“They can call it an anti-white-supremacist rally all they want,” he said. “I don’t believe it is. I think it’s an anti-Trump rally. And that’s why I’m here. I’m a Trump supporter, and I’m not a white supremacist at all.”Before the Dallas protests began, several men and women armed with high-powered rifles and dressed in military fatigues assembled near a rally site.

No Doubt About It: People Who Mislead the Public About Climate Change Are Deniers

Yesterday, the Associated Press Stylebook announced new guidance on how to describe those who reject accepted science on climate change. It’s an important question, but the AP’s recommendations in this case missed its mission to more accurately present the news. By suggesting the term “doubter” to describe this group, the AP reinforces a persistent problem in reporting on climate change – the false suggestion of a balanced scientific debate where none exists. Last spring, ClimateTruth.org submitted a petition to AP editors signed by more than 22,000 of our members in support of an open letter organized by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. The letter argued that the term “skeptic” granted undeserved credibility to those who reject science and scientific inquiry. Stylebook editors cited the letter in explaining their recommendation not to use the term skeptic. Yet the Stylebook’s alternative term “doubter” falsely equates the legitimate concerns of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry with the concern that “those who reject climate science say the phrase denier has the pejorative ring of Holocaust denier.” In other words, deniers don’t like being called deniers, so we shouldn’t call them that. Why the feelings of the deniers have any bearing on this decision is not clear. But if the question is accuracy, then the label “climate change doubters” just doesn’t hold up. Like skeptic, doubter implies a certain intellectual authenticity – a sense of validation where none should reasonably exist. The group this term seeks to describe is mostly made up of an array of pundits, politicians, and front group professionals – part of a systematic, well-funded, coordinated effort to confuse the public about the reality of climate change. Their mission is simple and, at its root, inherently anti-intellectual: confuse the issue to forestall action. As the New York Times’ Justin Gillis explained in a February piece on this subject: The opposition is coming from a certain faction of the political right. Many of these conservatives understand that because greenhouse emissions are caused by virtually every economic activity of modern society, they are likely to be reduced only by extensive government intervention in the market. This is hardly a new phenomenon. As the science historians Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway have ably shown in their book Merchants of Doubt, the people involved in this effort to mislead the public on climate change are often the same people who perpetrated years of lies about the health threats of tobacco. Climate Progress’ Joe Romm rightly asks, whether Stylebook editors would suggest calling such people “smoking health risk doubters?” For some, this whole debate may have them quoting Shakespeare’s Juliet, who famously asked “What’s in a name?” We need look no further than the Republican presidential primary for the answer. Nearly every candidate running for the Republican nomination denies the basic facts of climate change, and it’s almost certain that will be the view of the eventual nominee. The media will have ample opportunities to describe that nominee’s position on climate change, and how they do so will send an important signal to the American public about the nature of that view: is it an honest questioning or a willful effort to mislead? The AP Stylebook has a difficult and important job, but this should be an easy call. Does the AP really think that James Inhofe or Marco Rubio or the staff of the Heartland Institute have taken a careful look at the IPCC’s findings and decided they’re authentically uncertain about whether those scientists have gotten it right? As climate scientist Michael Mann said in response to the AP announcement, calling these people anything other than denier “is to grant an undeserved air of legitimacy to something that is simply not legitimate.” AP editors are right to advise against labeling the anti-science crowd skeptics. But they have done the journalistic world a disservice by giving those who reject mainstream science the “benefit of the doubt” (pun intended). We’re sticking with deniers and we urge accuracy-minded editors to do the same. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
