    The government of German Chancellor Angela Merkel sticks to a policy of double standards with its long time support for terrorists in Syria, German historian Götz Aly wrote.

    Just as the Syrian Army is trying to flush out Daesh terrorists, Berlin says that “everything Syrian President Bashar] Assad does is evil,” Götz Aly wrote in a piece carried by the newspaper Berliner Zeitung.

    But when terrorists abduct 150 Syrian families, mostly women and children, Merkel’s press secretary Steffen Seiber has nothing to say about this and simply keeps mum, Aly noted.

    Moreover, when it comes to crimes allegedly committed by Russian intelligence services in Europe Berlin reacts very quickly and considers putting in place sanctions.

    Götz Aly added that the German chancellor refuses to admit that with her “criminal lightheadedness” she has only been helping terrorists in Syria.
