NPD song incites violence against Michel Friedman

Berlin – An election campaign song posted on the website of the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) openly incites violence against the former Vice-President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany , Michel Friedman. The Council's Secretary General, Stephan J. Kramer, told the Berliner Tagesspiegel newspaper the Council was considering legal action against the far-right party. He said the NPD used any opportunity to "incite violence and racial hatred". Meanwhile, state prosecutors in Berlin are considering instituting criminal proceedings. (23.07.2009)
