Tyskland-hets fra Irlands største avis — på lederplass

Av - 15.2.2011 15:31

Det er valgkamp i Irland og økonomien er kjørt i grøfta, men det kan ikke bortforklare at landets største avis Irish Independent setter sånt som dette på lederplass:

It should be noted that when it comes to the re-invigoration of Germany’s urge to dominate, that our own damned stupidity has created the appalling scenario where our future is decided by Frau Merkel’s need to retain the support of Hans, who spends every Friday night in the local Bierkeller complaining about the feckless Greeks, Irish, Turks and other lesser races. (…) During their long love affair with fascism, our moral German friends decreed that while the British and the French were part of the superior races, the mere Irish were given the same middle ranking as the unfortunate Poles. As Germany returns to old habits it is starting to look as though we need to build a modern league of small nations to curb the imperial ambitions of Frau Merkel and her devious French collaborationists.

Irritasjon over Tyskland og Frankrikes opptreden har økt blant de andre EU-landenes ledere de siste månedene, det er det neppe tvil om (se tidligere sak). Merkel og Sarkozy har gjort det til en vane å presentere de andre 25 (eller 15 i eurosonen) for mer eller mindre ferdiglagde planer. Men det kan ikke rettferdiggjøre en utblåsning som denne — vi vet alle hva “Tyskland vender tilbake til gamle vaner” og “franske kollaboratører” henspiller på. Hvis dette er noen indikasjon på debattklimaet i Irland og EU-landene i mellom, er det grunn til å bli urolig.

Saken fant jeg på den glimrende bloggen The Irish Economy, hvis skribenter tar avstand fra avisens beskyldninger.
