BERLIN - Edith Lutz, a member of a fringe group of anti-Israeli German Jews, announced on Thursday in German radio (Deutschlandradio) that members plan to deliver musical instruments and other goods aboard a vessel destined for Hamas in Gaza.

According to Lutz, the German chapter of the group European Jews for a Just Peace (EJJP) stated “there must be talks with Hamas, the elected government.”Members of the  anti-Zionist group (EJJP) have frequently compared Israel with Nazi Germany and the former Apartheid government in South Africa.

Critics in Germany note that the EJJP are obsessed with Israel and show no interest for the genocide in Dafur or the Iranian government's brutal crackdown of its civilian population.

According to media observers, the EJJP attracts vast media attention in Germany because of widespread anti-Israeli sentiments among the population.

Stephan J. Kramer, the General Secretary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, told The Jerusalem Post: "The initiative is purely naive, if not a just provocation of Israel and its legitimate right to defend itself and its citizens. With their actions, these activists become naive and willing tools of the terrorists and enemies of Israel."
