Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg on CNN tells of selective anti-Americanism growing in Germany

A reader tipped me off today that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was to be on CNN and so I watched him.  Herr Guttenberg was briefly on the program FAREED ZAKARIA GPS where he was only asked a couple of questions:

May 11, 2014

ZAKARIA: Merkel has been pretty strong in terms of supporting President Obama. She seems to be alone, though, in Germany in this regard. How do you read the German political situation?

KARL-THEODOR ZU GUTTENBERG, FORMER GERMAN DEFENSE MINISTER: It’s a hard situation for Angela Merkel at the moment because on one side of course she’s totally committed to the western alliance and has so often quoted values connected to it. On the other hand, she is the leader around the globe that has had the most direct contact with Vladimir Putin during the last couple of weeks and months, and I think that’s a balance she has to keep for foreign policy. Talking about the situation in Germany, she is facing quite some tough position. And you hear also some kind of growing — I call it selective anti- Americanism in a group which is not famous for doing so. So that’s a new development and it makes it hard for her to deal with.

ZAKARIA: There is an article that the editor of “Devout,” Germany’s big newspapers, saying, look, what we have to realize is that new Germany, it’s not just old West Germany of the cold wars. This much larger entity it includes parts of the West Germany of the Cold War. It’s much entity. It includes parts of the east that have historically been close to Russia and have part of themselves as part of — kind of bridge between the west and the east. Gerhard Schroeder, the former chancellor, going to Putin’s birthday party.

Is this a new Germany that is going to try to play a kind of different role and Merkel is kind of the one person trying to tug it in the Atlantic direction?

GUTTENBERG: So we have it already since a couple of years that the — that the discussion about finding an equilibrium, or an (INAUDIBLE) between West and the East Germany. And the former Chancellor Schroeder is just one exponent for that very notion, although it was quite ridiculous behavior he had shown at the end of last couple of weeks, first of all accusing the EU of aggressive behavior toward Russia and to the reaction as such was understandable, but it certainly is part of a Germany that tries to find a role within Europe, within the wider Europe, that is somewhere being redefined.  http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1405/11/fzgps.01.html

So, Baron Guttenberg sees growing ‘selective’ anti-Americanism in Germany where it was not before.  The revelations and handling of the Snowden leaks as well as what has gone on with Ukraine and Russia is worsening the feelings of many Germans towards the USA.

I warned last Summer that the Germans were not going to forget what the Snowden leaks revealed about how the USA really viewed Germany.  The Germans realized that the USA does not trust it and has spied on it more than many of its enemies.  That, other actions, and the fact that the USA insists on continuing to spy on Germany has upset the Germans.  Earlier this month, Barack Obama disappointed Angela Merkel and the Germans related to the espionage matter (see Germany wants to talk with Edward Snowden).  This will not bode well for the USA (cf. Isaiah 10:5-11).

Baron Guttenberg was once the Defense Minister for Germany until he was embarrassed by a plagiarism scandal in 2011, then voluntarily resigned (Angela Merkel had said that he did not have to leave or resign) and went on a self-imposed exile to the USA. Some are still unwilling to be near him because of his plagiarism scandal (he lost his Ph.D. after some concluded that he copied major portions of someone else’s writings without crediting the original source).

Baron Guttenberg, himself, is a ‘person of interest’ as far as the Beast of Revelation 13 goes.

Some items of possibly related interest may include:

Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? Is an emerging European power “the daughter of Babylon”? What is ahead for Europe? Here is a link to a video titled: Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?
Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North? Is the former German Defense Minister (who is also the former German Minister for Economics and Technology) one to watch? What do Catholic, Byzantine, and biblical prophecies suggest?
Germany’s Assyrian Roots Throughout History Are the Germanic peoples descended from Asshur of the Bible? Have there been real Christians in Germanic history? What about the “Holy Roman Empire”? There is also a You-Tube video sermon on this titled Germany’s Biblical Origins.
Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy Does Assyria in the Bible equate to an end time power inhabiting the area of the old Roman Empire? What does prophecy say Germany will do and what does it say will happen to most of the German people?
Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies for the Great Monarch point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States? Here is a link to a video titled: The Future King of the North.
Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European? The Book of Revelation tells of a beast power that will rise up. Some think that this must be Russia or could be Islamic, while others say that this power is European. The Book of Daniel tells of the rise of an end time King of the North that some think must be referring to a Russian leader, while others say that this power is European. How can you be sure? This YouTube video has all the scriptural proofs that you should need to prove that this power must be a European one.
The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy Is there a Eurasian union that will be formed? Is one being formed right now? Are any leaders working on that in the 21st century? Does the Bible teach that there will be a Eurasian union? If some type of Eurasian union is formed, who might it benefit and who will it destroy? A related video would be Is The Eurasian Union Rising?
Is Russia the King of the North? Some claim it is. But what does the Bible teach? Here is a link to a video, also titled Is Russia the King of the North?
Russia and Ukraine: Their Origins and Prophesied Future Where do the Russians come from? What about those in the Ukraine? What is prophesied for Russia and its allies? What will they do to the Europeans that supported the Beast in the end?
Ukraine in Prophecy? What is happening in Ukraine? What is known and what is unsure about its future? What is the origin of those who live in Ukraine? What does the Bible teach about the role of the Medes in the end times? Will Ukraine split? Why might part of Ukraine end up in the European Union? Why might part of Ukraine end up in the Eurasian Union? Is war in the prophesied future for Ukraine? What is the ultimate destiny for nearly all Ukrainians?
The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA Can what happened with the leaks of what the NSA has done help the USA to be taken over? What does the Bible teach that seems to be related to this? Here is a related YouTube video titled Are the Snowden NSA leaks leading to the destruction of the USA?
