How active is Germany in the Middle East?


In 2011, Berlin and Riyadh struck a multi-billion euro arms deal, whereby the Saudis agreed to purchase hundreds of German-manufactured tanks. In 2012, Germany supplied Saudi Arabia with €1.24 billion of military hardware. The following year, a German defense firm (Krauss-Maffei Wegmann) won a contract worth €1.89 billion to supply Qatar with artillery systems and 86 tanks.

According to the German government, German arms exports to the GCC totaled €817 million in the first half of 2013, on track to exceed the €1.42 billion reached in 2012 — which was already more than double the previous year. The Merkel government defended these deals on the grounds that such moves would help bring stability to a volatile region and fight terrorism. But grander geopolitical factors involving the Iranian-Saudi duel for regional hegemony in the Arab world — in addition to Iran and Israel’s ongoing military standoff — also influenced Germany’s decision to export arms to the GCC.

For many years, Germany’s alliance with Israel, and its preoccupation with human rights, deterred Berlin from exporting arms to Arab states. But the recent agreements with the GCC should not be seen as the Merkel government placing distance between Germany and Israel. On the contrary, Israel approved of the deepening of German-GCC military ties. This ultimately underscores the reality of Israel and Saudi Arabia’s tacit alliance, largely driven by their mutual interest in countering Iran’s influence in the Arab world, and Tehran’s presumed nuclear weapons ambitions.

Germany’s relationship with the post-1979 Iranian government has historically been the best among the western European nations, but Germany has aligned itself with the U.S. and Israel vis-à-vis Iran since Merkel became Chancellor in 2005. The German leader joined the American and Israeli bandwagon early on by calling for stringent economic sanctions against Iran. By arming Saudi Arabia at a time when Tehran and Riyadh are competing for influence across the Middle East, Berlin is intent on strengthening Saudi Arabia’s hand at Iran’s expense.

The timing of Saudi Arabia’s evolving relationship with Russia also permits Germany to grow closer to Riyadh with less concern about how such a development could potentially harm German-Russian relations. Although arms exports are highly sensitive in Germany, Merkel has demonstrated that she is not afraid of controversy.

It is no secret that the German military equipment being purchased by Saudi Arabia will most likely be used to crack down on anti-government demonstrations inside Bahrain, and/or the Shia-majority region of eastern Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom’s recent involvement in Bahrain and Yemen underscores its aggressive and pro-active opposition toward political change on its borders. If Saudi Arabia employs its security forces to directly influence the course of events in other nations in the region, Germany may soon be perceived as having helped prolong the region’s Ancien Régimes, at a particularly sensitive time. Germany is undoubtedly betting that its economic and geopolitical interests are likelier to benefit from its approach to arms sales in the Gulf.

================================

A senior German official has called for the reconsideration of Germany’s arms exports to Saudi Arabia, describing the monarchy as the leading exporter of terrorism in the Middle East.Roth (shown below) called Riyadh “the top terror exporter in the Middle East,” adding that “a large portion” of extremist militants in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq hail from Saudi Arabia.

Germany’s guidelines on weapons exports make it “crystal clear that deliveries cannot be made to such countries,” she stressed. “Besides the weapons deals, Germany is also discussing other trade ties with Saudi Arabia,” she said. “Pressure could certainly be brought to bear using these.”

A new report shows that Saudi Arabia has overtaken India to become the largest arms importer in the world over the last year.

The kingdom’s military spending jumped 54 percent to USD 6.5 billion in 2014, while New Delhi imported USD 5.8 billion worth of weapons, said a Sunday report by IHS Inc, a leading analyst of the global arms trade.

Riyadh is said to be one of the major supporters of Takfiri militants wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria. Saudi Arabia also backs the Bahraini regime in its crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.

The results of a recent survey conducted for German daily Bild have shown that 78 percent of Germans believe Berlin should stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia, while a further 60 percent favor breaking off trade relations all together with the Persian Gulf monarchy due to its human rights violations.

Though European governments have been quick to criticize the escalation of violence in the Middle-East and yet still sells weapons to Israel and to Saudis. Thousands of people have already died in the current military confrontations in the region.

Thousands of refugees are flooding Europe causing havocs everywhere.

German arms go into child soldiers’ hands

For instance, the G3 automatic rifle, which is made in Germany by Heckler & Koch is known for being used in the bloody civil war in Sierra Leone, where young boys are forced to become a soldiers. During the period of 1991 till 2001 of civil war in West African country, thousands of kids were forced into war. The children were lured away from their parents or kidnapped from school, and were made compliant with drugs and alcohol.  Antje Weber, a child rights expert with the child emergency relief organization Kindernothilfe says, “Worldwide, more than 250,000 children as used as soldiers.” She adds that those children are often used for various reasons, they work as spies, fighters, and they get sexually abused. In the end, they live their lives with deep psychological issues.

“Heckler & Koch employs only about 700 workers, but it is one of the deadliest companies in Europe.”

Back in 2012, Germany approved the export of 66,955 small arms.

“German arms exports are stuck in a quagmire of corruption and kickbacks with extremely close ties between the arms manufacturers, dealers, the government, politicians and political parties. Various politicians in South Africa have benefited enormously due to arms trading.

Germany arms the Middle East contributing to regional destabilisation and fuelling the conflicts.

Germany, the US and Israel should be made responsible.
