'We do not accept this kind of aggressive anti-Semitic movement,' SE CEO Mathias Döpfner said

The CEO of German media giant Axel Springer told his employees who complained about the Israeli flag outside their offices that they should find new jobs.

SE CEO Mathias Döpfner made the remarks during a meeting last week for the company’s 16,000 employees and addressed complaints about the Israeli flag outside company headquarters.

“I think, and I’m very frank with you, a person who has an issue with an Israeli flag being raised for one week here, after anti-Semitic demonstrations, should look for a new job,” Döpfner said.

“After these weeks of terrible antisemitic demonstrations, we at our building headquarters raised next to the European flag, and the German flag, [and] the Berlin flag, said let’s raise for 1 week the Israeli flag as a gesture of solidarity.

"We do not accept this kind of aggressive anti-Semitic movement.”

The Jerusalem Post reported:

Berlin-based Axel Springer is the largest digital publisher in Europe, which owns Bild, Die Welt, Business Insider, Politico Europe, and many other news brands, as well as Israel’s largest classified ads website, Yad2. …

Axel Springer put the Israeli flag up in front of its headquarters in May, following antisemitic displays at pro-Palestinian demonstrations across Germany, including marches to synagogues, shouting slogans against Jews, attacks on Jewish institutions, and the burning of Israeli flags.

Döpfner said that people who did not want to work for the company because of the Israeli flag did “not fit the company and its values.”

The company’s top-5 “Essentials” includes standing up for the Jewish people and Israel’s rights.

“The public doesn’t know everything yet, nor does Hamas. Our accomplishments will be revealed in time,” said former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in May.

“We caused maximum damage to Hamas with minimal casualties on the Israeli side, and of course, we grieve all loss of human life."
