One of the regular readers of my blog made a comment in which he mentioned that the Jews want to come back to Germany and set up a new Jewish state called Medinat-Weimar.
I had to look up the word medinat. I found this definition here:
The State of Israel. Used in opposition to the commonly used Eretz Yisrael, which translates as The Land of Israel. Medinat Yisrael means the Modern State of Israel.
I live in Medinat Yisrael.
According to this news story, the Jews are not thriving in Israel, and they want to come back to Germany.
This quote is from the news story, cited above:
BERLIN (JTA) – An Israeli artist is challenging boundaries – national, political and artistic – with his project to create a Jewish state in the former East Germany.
Ronen Eidelman wants to raise questions about national identity, anti-Semitism and the complex relationship involving Germany, Jews and Israel.
Eidelman, who has been living in Germany the past year and a half, says his project reflects “the power of art to ask questions and put a mirror to society.”
While some Germans never tire of debating such topics, Eidelman’s proposal for “Medinat Weimar” apparently has touched raw nerves. One Jewish leader says he would never set foot in the new “state.” Eidelman’s university, for which the project was conceived, has distanced itself from the idea.
The Deutsches Nationaltheater (German National Theater) in Weimar, Germany, shown in the photo above, was where the German National Assembly met to draw up the constitution for the new German Republic. The Weimar constitution was passed a year later on November 8, 1919.
The theater was built in 1908 and the first performance was held there on November 1, 1908. During World War II, the building was used as an armament factory, beginning in 1944.
To Americans, the Weimar Republic represents a great achievement, since from the American point of view, the Great War was fought “to make the world safe for democracy.” As it turned out, the Weimar Republic of the Social Democrats was opposed by many factions of the German people, and was doomed from the start.
Before the new government could meet to begin work on the constitution, the Communists, under the Jewish leaders Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxembourg, had declared their own Republic in January 1919 but were forced to withdraw when a militia group of 3,000 soldiers, who had returned home after the Armistice of November 11, 1918, defeated them in bloody street fighting in Berlin.
The cemetery has a gate with the Communist red star emblem and a side gate, shown in the photo above, with the Communist hammer and sickle symbol. Now that Weimar is no longer ruled by the Communists, the cemetery is considered out of place in a park that is associated with the beloved Goethe.
Goethe’s garden house is shown in the photo below. Yes, I’ve been there. A German man, who was at the garden house, answering questions for tourists, taught me how to pronounce Goethe. It sounds something like “gurd-uh”.
You can read another news story here about how the Jews in Israel want to come back to Berlin.
Will the Jews be safe in Germany, or will they be Holocausted again? Germany is now the safest possible place for the Jews. The Germans are now afraid to even say the word “Jew.” They have learned their lesson: the Jews rule.
