Germany Arms the Middle East Against Iran

The Middle East is a battle zone between two camps, one led by Iran, the other by Saudi Arabia and a powerful European supporter.

Last year, the German government approved $1.42 billion worth of exports to countries that are involved in the Yemeni or Libyan civil wars, the news agency DPA reported, citing Germany’s Economy Ministry. Every year, weapons exports to the Middle East spark a great controversy in German politics. Why then is a prosperous nation like Germany interested in fueling wars in the Middle East?

Every battleground in the Middle East is complex and involves various players. But in his landmark 2013 article “Watch Algeria!” Watch Jerusalem editor in chief Gerald Flurry explains which battle lines are the most important to discern. “Iran has designs on being the strongest power throughout the region and is extending its reach throughout North Africa,” he wrote. He said that Iran was doing all it could “to encourage the radicalization of Egypt and its spread into Libya.”

“But Iran isn’t the only one interested in Africa,” Mr. Flurry noted. “Germany is making strong inroads as well. Both of these powers are racing to get as much control of North Africa as they can. They will inevitably clash with each other.”
