A veteran German journalist in Israel asserted in a Monday article that the weekly magazine Der Spiegel manufactured a crisis between Israel and German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Spiegel alleged that Israel denied Steinmeier’s plane permission to fly through its airspace during a trip to the Middle East in May because he snubbed a visit to Israel.

“Spiegel’s contention is astonishing, because at that time it was already known that Steinmeier would be coming to Israel in two weeks to receive an honorary doctorate at Hebrew University, “ wrote Ulrich Sahm, a prominent German journalist in the German-language website Israelnetz.

The article’s title states: "Spiegel invents annoyance between Israel and Germany."
