Government in a twist over 'pinstriped Nazis'
With thousands marching regularly in protest over asylum seekers and perceived Islamisation in Germany, ministers are in a quandary how to separate the neo-Nazi hardcore and participants expressing legitimate concerns.
Starting in the east in October and spreading to other cities, the marches led by the group Pegida ("Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West") are having serious repercussions, with the far right misrepresenting its real agenda, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière told ARD television on Thursday evening.
"We can already feel how the climate in Germany society is becoming more raw," he said.
