  Resolved Question: Why all the fuss about
Why is no-one bringing to light the fact that the German poet Gunter Grass is not allowed to enter Israel on the grounds that he was a Nazi and was in the S.S and thus is not allowed to enter Israel under an Israeli law that dates back to 1952. Why is everyone claiming its because he wrote a poem critical of Israel relating to the Israel/Iran situation at the minute?

  Resolved Question: Should Gunter Grass
Gunter Grass served in his youth for Hitler's Waffen-SS in Nazi Germany and eventually was caught and locked up in an American prisoner camp. He, while winning the nobel prize for literature in 1999 an praised for many other 'intellectual' stuff, only admitted these facts in 2006 while he critized before this time many other Nazi's for their part in the war. Many people all over Europe were furious especially when he himself became angered on people criticizing him for his SS-past. A few days ago Gunter Grass published in many newspapers all over the world a critizing article on Israel stating that not Iran but Israel is the real danger. The reaction on his article were mixed. The German politicians tried to distance themselves from his words but criticized Israel for denying Grass' acces to Israel (while every former member of the SS isn't allowed to enter by Israeli law). Especially Grass' defense was received all over Europe with mixed feelings because he stated that he expected to be called anti-semitic because of his nationality (while almost everyone knew that Grass would be criticized because of his membership with the SS and not his nationality). Grass responded that his words were only ment ment for the current Israeli government. Other German people shouted that the German people also should be allowed to criticize Israel despite their bloody history during the Second World War (while for many Europeans it was not the question that a German critized Israel but that a former member of the Waffen-SS published these words). So in Europe it became a debate if a once moral example, fallen deeper and deeper after his admittance that he joined the SS, should ever stated words like these on Israel. And in Germany it became a debate if a German should criticize Israel or not (because of his weak defense). ---- What is your opinion on this very important debate? My opinion is that a German nowadays should be carefull what to say on Israel but should speak his mind if somethings bothers him within a reasonable context ofcource. But as a former member of the Waffen-SS Gunter Grass should know better and that's why he has to withdraw his words in my opinion or accept that people doubt his real intentions.
