WJC co-signs German Council of German Jews’ declaration condemning AfD E-mail

The World Jewish Congress co-signed a joint declaration initiated by the Central Council of Jews in Germany on 8 October condemning the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party as a “racist and anti-Semitic party” and a “threat to Jewish life in Germany”.

The declaration, entitled “No Alternative for Jews”, stated: “The AfD is not a party for Jews... the AfD is a party in which hatred of the Jews and the denial of the Shoah have a home. The AfD is antidemocratic, inhumane and, in many parts, right-wing extremist.” It was released on the same day that a separate group called “Jews for the AfD” was officially launched in Weisbaden.

Founded in April 2013, AfD last year became the first far-right party to win seats in the Bundestag in more than half a century year.
