Achtung Baby!

Translation: Israel’s secret killer commandos.
David’s Avengers

Ich kann nicht Deutsch lesen, but it doesn't matter. If a picture is worth a thousand words, you can fill in the rest. As Benjamin Weinthal reports, Der Speigel, is "worried about Jewish revenge." It's current cover story traces the timeline of the Dubai hit of Hamas biggieMahmoud al-Mabhouh, and one can only wonder at how thoroughly the stage has been set by the Legitimacy War so that the once verboten use of anti-Semitic tropes is ok now in this apparently no-longer shamed country. 

As Weinthal says, "Take as an example the headline of the screams out 'An eye for an eye, a murder for a murder.' The cheap wordplay on a section from the Hebrew Bible further reinforces widespread European prejudices against Jews.Der Spiegel’s editors know they are playing with anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish sentiments. But expanding circulation counts, and preaching to the choir of resentments in Germany takes priority over fact-based reporting."
