German groups say Paris attack shows Islamist threat
by Erik Kirschbaum
Anti-immigrant groups in Germany seized on Wednesday's deadly attack in Paris, with leaders of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and PEGIDA saying it showed the threat of Islamist violence.
Twelve people were killed when gunmen stormed the offices of a French satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam.
"This bloodbath proves wrong those who laughed or ignored the fears of so many people about a looming danger of Islamism," said Alexander Gauland, a regional AfD leader. "This gives new clout to PEGIDA demands."
