Israel is hoping to order two modern German-made warships without paying for them, daily Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung reported on Friday.

Sources within the German government told the paper that Israel wants the Berlin to finance the MEKO corvettes, a sum that would reportedly reach hundreds of millions of euros.

The paper reported that the government has not yet reacted to Israel’s request. But “influential politicians from northern Germany,” where the shipbuilding industry is suffering from the global economic downturn, are apparently supportive in the interest of keeping German shipyards in business.

The shipbuilding contract would go to Hamburg company Blohm + Voss, the paper said.

But the internal weapons system would come from the United States, with the end result being a missile defence system on water.

Israeli naval forces have already received help from the German government. Between 1999 and 2000, three submarines completed by Kiel shipyard Howaldtswerken Deutsche Werft were delivered.

Meanwhile the government is reportedly paying for two-thirds of two more submarines with fuel-cell power plants priced at €500 million. They are currently under construction in Kiel with plans to deliver them to Israel in 2012.

Do you think the Germans will be as stupid as the US in funding Israel military welfare? I noted that the US would still be funding the weapons on board while drowning in debt. We truly have complete idiots running this nation into the ground. I'm sure the Israelis are heaping on a triple layer of guilt to get the Germans to cough up what the want for free.

The article said that the German gov't is considering doing this to keep German ship yards open and to keep Germans employed during the recessions. At least the German gov't is considering what possible benefits might accrue for the German people from this decision. Our gov't otoh just gives freebies to Israel with no thought about Americans.

I read the article too Scrapper. Tell me how is it a win for the German taxpayers to pay for Israeli goodies FOR FREE? I'm sure China would PAY for the same thing, keeping Germans employed while making some money, not wasting money.

Our goverment morons fall for this stupid jobs in the MIC mantra all the time. In fact, Israeli firsters will brag that they keep Americans working with no mention of taxpayers footing the bill. This isn't new. It's a scheme and one that does not benefit America, nor will it benefit Germany. Making crap FOR FREE has no benefit, nada, zip, zilch.

It's not a big win for German taxpayers but it's a small win, keeping Germans off the welfare unemployment bean lines.

My point was that I don't believe the German gov't is acting out of guilt - there are pragmatic considerations in play.

Slippery slope. This is the same "pragmatic considerations" that have roped the US taxpayers into completely funding Israel military. Oh, and part of doing this also has to do with guilt.

Sorry, scrapper, after watching this nation ship our taxdollars to Israel for decades, I refuse to swallow anymore bill of goods that producing it on the taxpayers dime to give to Israel is good in anyway..........nor is it the least bit pragmatic.

Truman had it right...

He said no matter what one did for the Jews, they always wanted more, they were never satisfied.
