German shipping company is involved in arms deliveries for the war on Gaza

Newsletter 2009/01/12 – Margin of Maneuver in the Middle East

GAZA/BERLIN (Own report) – The news agency Reuters reported that a
German shipping company is involved in arms deliveries for the war on
Gaza. According to the report, a German ship took on an exceptionally
voluminous cargo of US American combat material destined for the
Israeli port Ashdod. A second delivery is currently being prepared.
Because of its obvious connection to the war on Gaza, British military
experts have characterized the shipments as “irregular.” German
participation draws attention to Berlin’s arms exports to the Middle
East, with which Germany has over the past few years been arming both
Israel and several of the Arab states. German weapons have been
helping to fuel the tensions that, from the outset, have been
inflaming the region. On the other hand, as announced by Foreign
Minister Steinmeier over the weekend, Berlin wants to help prevent the
influx of foreign weapons that exceed Western control. This is
referring to the suspected influx of Iranian weapons into the Gaza
Strip.
