7:04 pm
a dark shadow over germany's relationship with the palestinian authority. mackwood abbas turned down his message in a new statement that his holocaust remarks have already strained german palestinian relations. or the w. a political correspond that neither has a talk me through more of a german reactions to the statement where yeah, the reactions have been very strong indeed. how many politicians have called about his comments, outrages. some said it was the biggest derailment at the chancery in history. even angler mac or we'll remember her, the former chancellor who's been keeping a low profile for the last year published a statement saying such relative a zation of the holocaust was something that germany would never tolerate. but yes, a lot of the outraged today was also directed at how the current german chancellor shows handled the situation. i was at the press of phil and there were 2 moments where we really held our breath. first, when our boss spoke of apartheid in his country now, so as quickly distance himself from that. but then later ron, when he made this holocaust comment,
7:05 pm
everybody knew that was the last question. an answer, but the word holocaust lingered in the room and so they begin to frown. it look to me and to others as though he wanted to respond. but then he didn't. and his spokesperson ended. the presser showed, shook hands with our boss and left. so he should definitely have responded there and then right i, when we've, we've out on that booster. so government spokesperson, who's taking the blame for ending this press conference? so abruptly i'm, i'm guessing that it's not gonna do anything to dispel the pressure on the chancellor smile. in actual fact, his spokes person, stephanie was tried, went on the record to day repeating what he told us on tuesday after the presser. so when he came back to us journalist yesterday after the press a he said already that his boss was upset with him, that chose was angry, that he resigned, had ended the precedence soon and that he wanted to say something. but of course, many are now saying that the german chancellor can, of course, always overrule his own spokesperson. in these situations, the chance would have been there, but shorts didn't. right. you,
7:06 pm
perhaps you could explain why these comments are provoked, such a strong reaction here a germany well, when ever there is a debate about holocaust. people here in germany are extremely sensitive that has to do with our history. and of course, there is a difference between legitimate criticism of some of the actions israeli government stands for on the one side. and using was that relative eyes? what the nazis here in germany did during the 2nd world war? that is just a no go and germany and everybody, every diplomat knows that around the world and relative isaac in world war whole, the cost is even illegal here. so the feeling is that my, what about strategically used the political stage here? he must have been aware that it was going to be a tremendous provocation to use that word for israel's actions at the chancery. and of course, it's not going to do is cause any favors to provoke the chancellor like that relations are going to be strained. and the other is of course, the other scandal that choice didn't immediately challenge this undiplomatic
7:07 pm
language. i thank you for that. i needed nina. honda and he w, corresponded tanya kraemer in jerusalem. talk me through these writing reaction while there was clearly also shock and outweighed here and in israel, among you know, is very politicians across the political board about the use of the holocaust. and the statements made by palestinian prison mahmoud abbas standing there alongside the german chancellor. olaf shoals searches too. and you know, aside a crow to few now prime minister, your ill a pete said in the statement on twitter that while, and that's a quote sending on german soil. it is not only a moral disgrace, he said, but a monstrous lie. and he added also that history will never forgive him. defense minister benny guns, who had actually recently met with the palestinian president, mahmoud abbas and said that abbas words are despicable and false. a. his statement

not intended to deny the singularity of the holocaust that occurred the last century and that he was condemning it in the strongest terms. he also stressed however, you know that the crimes he was referring to are committed by israeli forces that were crimes committed since 948 since at the foundation of the state of israel. that a statement came out, of course, a couple of hours later after this backlash from ramallah here in the morning. okay . thank you for that to tonya tonya kraemer in jerusalem. but some more stories are making headlines around the world are better knew as politician lis cheney has lost her seat in the republican primary to a trump supporting lawyer, harriet hagaman, i miss chaney has been an outspoken critic of the former president and was one of a few republicans to vote for his impeachment shlang has formed, president got to buy a roger pack, so it will return to the crisis stricken country later this month. as according to
