German nationalist group to rally against Judaism

COLOGNE, Germany (AP) — A nationalist German group said Friday it has invited leading members of the European right to take part in a “anti-Judaization” conference against the planned construction of a large synagogue.

French far-right firebrand Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the anti-immigration National Front party, Filip Dewinter, leader of Belgium’s nationalist Flemish Interest party and Christian Strache, leader of Austria’s right-wing Freedom Party are all expected to attend next week’s conference said Markus Beisicht, head of the Pro-Cologne nationalist movement.

Beisicht said he expected 1,500 people to turn out for the group’s demonstration on Sept. 20 against the city’s decision to allow construction of a new, domed synagogue in the city’s heavily immigrant Ehrenfeld district.


Pro-Cologne’s leaders, however, insist they support Jews’ right to live in Germany, provided they learn the language here and “actively demonstrate” a willingness to integrate.

But they say that such a large synagogue has no place in traditionally Roman Catholic Cologne.

“Of course we want to guarantee Jews’ right to freedom of religion,” said Pro-Cologne deputy leader Judith Wolter. “But building a large synagogue is not part of that.”

The group insists that, while it is nationalist and populist, it rejects racism, violence and any links to Germany’s traditional right-wing parties, including the far-right National Democratic Party, or NPD.

“We represent a new political approach,” said Beisicht.

What’s wrong with the above? Why, what else but the references to Judaism? Replace it with Islam and it becomes just fine, perfectly legitimate and justified protest! : http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2008-09-12-Islam_N.htm

European enlightenment at its best.
