Jewish group warns of neo-Nazi parties in Europe

View Comments

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — The World Jewish Congress says it is greatly concerned about the emergence of neo-Nazi parties like the Golden Dawn in Greece and Jobbik in Hungary.

A study presented Tuesday at the WJC assembly in Budapest, the Hungarian capital, highlights the links between the strengthening of such extremist groups, the European economic crisis and latent Nazi-type tendencies. The study also focused on Germany’s National Democratic Party.

In a resolution adopted by the WJC at the end of its three-day meeting, the group led by U.S. businessman Ronald Lauder called on countries whose constitutions permitted to “urgently” consider banning neo-Nazi parties or organizations “posing a threat to the safety and well-being” of minorities.
