What *is* true is that within the left in Germany, there is a fairly

territorial claims of opposing national collectives.
A longtime and close German friend of mine broke off all relations and 
contact with me because of my criticisms (too irreverent, perhaps) of 
the Zionist entity. He is a former (youthful) Maoist, and his reaction 
had nothing to do with "territorial claims," but rather with what he 
perceived to be un-pc speech.
