Germany has a small, but growing, problem:
The number of neo-Nazi activists in Germany went up between 2004 and 2005, according to the mass circulation newspaper Bild am Sonntag set to appear Sunday.
Quoting Germany’s domestic counter-espionage agency it said the number of members of neo-Nazi groups had risen from 3,800 to 4,100 while right-wing extremists identified as resorting to physical violence had increased marginally, from 10,000 to 10,400.
However the overall number of activists on the broader extreme right had declined marginally from 40,700 to 39,000 because of a drop in the numbers of two of three right-wing parties, the Deutsche Volksunion (German People’s Union) and the Republicans.
Unsurprisingly, some neo-Nazis plan to show their support for Iran’s anti-Semitic leadership during the forthcoming World Cup.
