Armenian officials compared Israel to Nazi Germany amid the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict | Instant News

The Advisor to the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Army Vladimir Pogosyan on Thursday compared Israel to Nazi Germany and promised revenge for its support for Azerbaijan in the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

“Politicians in Armenia are finally starting to realize what Europe and Israel are, especially Israel. Israel today and Germany in 1933 are the same. The only difference is that I have understood it since the first war,” Podosyan wrote on Facebook.

“We will not forgive anyone, and we will not forget whose hand is covered in Armenian blood. The day will come, and we will take revenge. Israel, Turkey and other countries are building Azerbaijan armies. And what they achieved with it. ? We’ll win! Don’t hesitate about that. “

Germany has promised to share any viral vaccines with Israel | Instant News

Germany this week said it would share with Israel any coronavirus vaccines it makes in Europe.

German Health Minister Jens Spahn on Sunday notified Israel’s Ambassador to Germany Jeremy Issacharoff about the decision, which comes after a meeting last week between Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and his German counterpart Heiko Maas in Berlin.

Although the exact number of vaccinations is unclear, Israel is expected to receive thousands or possibly millions of vaccinations if the initiative is truly successful.

“I thank the German foreign and health ministers for their support to Israel in the fight against the coronavirus,” said Ashkenazi.

“This move symbolizes a special and deep friendship and a warm bond between countries.”

According to Ashkenazi, receiving the vaccine from Germany “will allow the economy to return to full activity in Israel.”

He added that Ambassador Issacharoff and embassy staff “have played a large role in this important milestone.”

Germany’s decision to supply Israel with a vaccination developed by Europe is conflicting decision created by the European Union Health Safety Committee to supply first only European countries with European vaccinations.

But as one of the major powers in the EU, Germany is able to bypass committee decisions and justify its arrangement with Israel, among other things, with the “close ties” the two countries have.

Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca has recently continued clinical trials for a vaccine in Japan, UK, Brazil, South Africa and India.

German court rejects Iraqi appeal for murder, rape of Jewish teenagers | Instant News

A German federal court said Tuesday that it had rejected an Iraqi asylum seeker application that was denied his conviction for raping and killing a 14-year-old local Jewish girl.

Ali Bashar was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Wiesbaden state court in July after a four-month trial in a case that sparked tensions about migration.

The judge, Juergen Bonk, also found the crime to be very severe, which meant that Bashar would not be given parole after 15 years as is usually the case in Germany.

Bashar committed “a cold-blooded murder” and pointed out “no remorse or,” the presiding judge said, adding that during his trial the defendant “did not voice sincere words of remorse”.

Bashar, who was 21 years old at the time of the murder, was convicted of assaulting and killing Susanna Feldman in Wiesbaden in May 2018.

The Iraqi man beat, raped and strangled the schoolboy to death in a wooded area near the railroad tracks on May 23.

The court heard he later sent a fake message from Susanna’s smartphone indicating that he had left for an impromptu trip to Paris. His body was only found on June 6 in a shallow grave covered with leaves, twigs and soil.

Bashar and his family suddenly left the house for asylum applicants in Germany after the killings, and he was later arrested by Kurdish forces in Iraq, handed over to German police officers and flown back to Germany.

Bashar is believed to have arrived in Germany in October 2015.

The Federal Court said it canceled Bashar’s appeal in the April 28 ruling. Among other objections to his belief, he argued that his return from Iraq was a “procedural obstacle.”

The Alternative Party for Germany (AfD) and other right-wing groups have captured the brutal murder of 14-year-old Susanna Maria Feldman in their campaign against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s asylum policy.
