On the Austrian Federal Chancellery, a government building, the Federal Chancellor hoisted an Israeli flag on its roof.
Austria's Federal Chancellor hoisted an Israeli flag on the roof of the Austrian Federal Chancellery on Friday morning, in solidarity with Israel during the increasing violence in the region.
Austria's Chancellor, Sebastien Kurz said on Twitter that "the terrorist attacks on Israel have to be condemned in the strongest way!" adding that Austria "stands by Israel's side," and posted a picture of the Israeli flag on the top of the building next to the Austrian flag and the European Union's.
The Austrian Ambassador to Israel, Hannah Liko, also reacted on Twitter, sharing Kurz's post saying that "as a sign of solidarity with Israel, the Israeli flag was hoisted on the roof of the Austrian Federal Chancellery today."
Austria's Foreign Minister also showed support, tweeting that "in the face of relentless rocket attacks on Israel, we stand in solidarity with our Israeli partners."
Some 2,000 rockets and mortars have been fired towards Israel from the Gaza Strip since fighting began. An additional 220 projectiles fired Thursday night and Friday morning, of which 30 landed in the Hamas-run territory.
Nine Israelis have been killed, and dozens injured.
Guilt? Could it be they now see what the deal is?
An honest and moral stance — something not seen much these days. Bravo, Austria!
Time to roll the tanks into Gaza.
This has been running in the Israeli news media. I would guess it provides some solace to Israeli Jews (not so much to the Arabs) to have a friend in Europe at least gesturing support.
“An honest and moral stance — something not seen much these days. Bravo, Austria!”
Agree. There history regarding Jews is not exactly stellar (but it’s still better than Norway, though), so this is a BIG DEAL. Great to see them getting it right, even if the Democrats here can’t seem to figure out that lobbing missiles at civilians is a bad thing.
Democrats want Israel destroyed yet Austria home of Hitler supports Israel.
“Democrats want Israel destroyed yet Austria home of Hitler supports Israel.”
The irony. And their propagandists tried to demonize all Trump supporters as supposed “nazis”.
In fact. Israel always faced genocide from racist-Arab-Muslims in the area.

Heute wurde als Zeichen der Solidarität mit #Israel die israelische Flagge am Dach des Bundeskanzleramtes gehisst. Die terroristischen Angriffe auf Israel sind auf das Schärfste zu verurteilen! Gemeinsam stehen wir an der Seite Israels. https://t.co/FR42K3iA4z https://twitter.com/sebastiankurz/status/1393106844449705985?s=20
