The state of German foreign affairs reporting

So what interests German television when it meets Israel's ambassador? "How concerned is Israel about the threat posed by Arab population growth?" the editors asked. "Does the UN decision to impose further sanctions on Iran satisfy Israel?" "How do you see the differences in the treatment of Israel in Germany compared with other European countries?" "What is Israel's reactions to the meeting between the German foreign minister and his Syrian counterpart?"

In the end, Ben-Ze'ev decided to raise the issue of Gaza on his own.

-For German media, Gaza is not an issue
