I am surprised. Israel is more than capable of defending itself.

Israel does not need our protection. In fact, the recently retired head of Mossad (Israel’s version of the CIA) and current conservative Israeli
prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have both stated that they can handle Iran without America’s help
And if Israel needed more military support, the Germans have promised to stand side by side with them with regards to the Iranian threat.
German Chief of the General Staff Schneiderhahn in 2009: "The calls for the destruction of the State of Israel by terror organizations, authoritarian
regimes, and other anti-Semitic voices, continue even in this day and age. The moral imperative for the world to take a stand and act against this
hatred is clear as is the need for a strong IDF. We must all act together to ensure we can promise, "Never Again". We will never let another Holocaust
occur, we will defend ourselves and we will be prepared for every challenge, we will deal with every enemy and adversary who wishes us harm. This is
what we have sworn—to remember and never to forget."
And: "The ties between our two countries and specifically between the German military and the IDF rose out of the unique history and expresses the
German understanding and commitment of the challenge we face. The fact that the IDF Chief of the General Staff and the German Chief of the General
Staff are standing here together, shoulder to shoulder, is a testimony to that.

I have written a number of articles about this before, but when I google the subject again, I notice that some of my previous resources seem to have
been removed. One of them was about an Israeli-German joint military venture. In any case, the message to Iran was clear: if you mess with Israel, you
mess with Germany.
