New Politico Owner Says Will Enforce pro-Israel Policy

Politico’s new owner, Germany’s Axel Springer, expects the U.S. website to adhere to the parent company’s principles including support for Israel’s right to exist, Springer’s CEO told The Wall Street Journal Friday.

Axel Springer said in August it was buying Politico for more than $1 billion.

The chief executive of the Berlin-based company, Mathias Döpfner, has long said that support for Israel is “a German duty.”

He told The Journal on Friday that this sentiment – and others such as support for a united Europe and a free-market economy – “are like a constitution, they apply to every employee of our company.” Employees who disagreed “should not work for Axel Springer, very clearly.”
