BREAKING: GERMANYS ANGELA MERKEL BLOCKS OBAMA FROM SPEAKING AT FAMOUS BRANDENBURG GATE ON VISIT IN GERMANY
Merkel is uncomfortable at Obamas lectureneering at the famous Brandenburg Gate, site of JFKs famous speech Ich Bin Eine Berliner. She doesnt want him give public speech at this location. So he has had to change his plans and speak at some other location , missed where, some sport tower or other.
Why doesnt she want him to speak at the Brandenburg gate? Or rather probably who told her they are uncomfortable with Obama speaking at the Brandenburg gate?

Merkel Chides Obama for 'Electioneering' Abroad

Supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama hold balloons in front of the Brandenburg Gate during the opening festivities of the new U.S. Embassy in Berlin, Germany, July 5, 2008. (Associated Press).
By Jonathan Weisman
Conservative German Chancellor Angela Merkel today sternly warned Sen. Barack Obama against speaking at Berlin's famed Brandenburg Gate when he passes through Europe later in the month, with her spokesman telling reporters that such "electioneering" would be "inappropriate" at a site of such historical significance.

Merkel was responding to a report in the German magazine Der Spiegel, which said "the Berlin state government has reportedly been asked" whether Obama could speak at the columned structure where Ronald Reagan implored Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall and where revelers famously celebrated the wall's demise. Obama is expected to be in the German capital July 24, the Agence France Presse reported.

Obama campaign aides have not formally confirmed any details about his European trip and declined again to do so this morning.

Through her spokesman, Merkel, one of President Bush's strongest allies, was blunt. She said she would be willing to meet with the senator from Illinois, but not at the Brandenburg Gate.

"It is unusual to hold election rallies abroad," sniffed Merkel spokesman Thomas Steg. "No German candidate for high office would even think of using the National Mall or Red Square in Moscow for a rally because it would not be seen as appropriate."

Merkel may ultimately have no

Barack Obama seems set to speak next to Berlin's famous Victory Column when he visits next week. The speech is expected to draw thousands and has put Obama's view on trade in the spotlight.

In what is viewed as a compromise, Obama, the presumptive US Democratic presidential candidate, will not speak directly at the Brandenburg Gate as originally proposed.

Instead, Obama will speak next to a 67-meter column topped with the golden image of the Roman goddess Victory. The Brandenburg Gate, an iconic symbol of Berlin's reunification, will be 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) at the opposite end of a tree-lined boulevard.

Obama is expected to addresses a large crowd in Berlin on Thursday, July 24. Some have estimated that more than 10,000 Berliners could show up for the event.

Berlin's Senate is expected to announce the decision on Friday, according to a report in the Berliner Zeitung newspaper. Unnamed federal and Berlin government officials also confirmed the venue to the DPA news agency.

Symbolic venue


Bildunterschrift: Großansicht des Bildes mit der Bildunterschrift: Obama will speak at Berlin's Victory Column
John F. Kennedy visited the Brandenburg Gate in the early 1960s when it was fenced off by East-West political divisions. The gate was also the spot where Ronald Reagan issued his 1987 call to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall."

Chancellor Angela Merkel had expressed reservations about Obama using the Brandenburg Gate for what will essentially be a campaign speech.

Social Democrat Frank-Walter Steinmeier, likely to be Merkel's opponent in next year's national elections, had supported Obama's right to use the gate as a venue. Obama himself had said that he didn't want the location of his speech to cause controversy.

Meeting with Merkel

The candidate's visit will also include a meeting with Merkel in the chancellery, her spokesman confirmed.

Spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm says the meeting is expected to take place on Thursday morning.

Berlin will come at the end of a trip Obama is taking that will start with visits to Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Berliners eager to hear Obama

Berliners are expected to turn up in large numbers to see him speak. A recent poll shows that 72 percent of Germans would vote for Obama if given the opportunity.

With President George W. Bush deeply unpopular in Germany, many are rooting for an Obama win.

"People here see him almost as a political redeemer after seven years of Bush," political analyst Jan Techau of the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) told DPA news agency, although he warns that sustaining the euphoria will be difficult.

Worries about trade barriers


Bildunterschrift: Großansicht des Bildes mit der Bildunterschrift: Obama's Budweiser comments have generated some concern in Europe
Some of Obama's comments about reforming the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have caused worry among Europeans. Obama recently said that he felt it was "a shame" that Belgium-based brewer, InBev NV would take over the iconic Budweiser label.

Europe's top trade commissioner, Peter Mandelson, called on Obama to stop "crowd-pleasing rhetoric" which could be interpreted as anti-trade.

Mandelson called on both Obama and likely Republican candidate John McCain to ``acknowledge the huge benefits for the American economy and the American people of continued trade growth.'' Mandelson made the comments during an interview with Bloomberg Television on Friday.

Besides Merkel being a Rothchild whore, an Euro-Stalinist (EUSSR, Lisboa Treason) and is selling out Germany in a pace GW Bushnazi would be proud of to have reached this speed ever to "NWO" in the US in this particular point she's right. We do not need MSM-balloned chimps to speak at the Brandenburger Tor. The last two speeches were JFK ("Ich bin ein Berliner")and Ronny Reagan ("Mr. Gorbatchew - tear down this wall!"). That was and made history. No need to import great gestures with no meaning and substance in a campaign there. When Obamba is President and has some two years of good intl. track record AND a real, major vision, perhaps then. Period.

well we here in germany simply don't want to see Mr. Obama being assasinated on such a place. The Brandenburg Gate is taboo for any political event since the fall of the Berlin wall.

Study wordwar II, Hitler and the cold war afterwards, JFK in Berlin and you see why.
