German Green
Party similar
to Nazis?

Bonn (JTA) — Frequent allega-
tions of a resemblance between
the Green Party, which has won
10 percent of the popular vote in
recent national and regional elec-
tions, and the rise of the Nazi
Party in the Weimar Republic
more than a half century ago,
have irritated left-wing Jewish
intellectuals who share the
ecological and pacifist philosophy
of the Greens.
Nevertheless, the parallels are
disturbing to many Germans,
Jews and non-Jews, because the
Greens manifest certain
nationalistic tendencies and are
distinctly unfriendly toward Is-
rael.
Until recently, comparisons
were drawn by political opponents
of the Green Party, notably the
ruling Christian Democratic
Union (CDU) and its Bavarian
counterparts, the Christian Social
Union (CSU), both conservative.
But at the Green Party's last con-
vention the Nazi analogy was ex-
pressed from within its ranks.
It came from Rudolf Bahro, an
ideological father figure of the
Greens who complained that the
party's rise in recent years was
similar to that of the Nazis. His
remarks triggered shouts of pro-
test and Bahro undoubtedly for-
feited much of the high regard he
enjoyed among the Greens. But
clearly, his outspoken criticism
set a precedent which cannot be
ignored.
There have since been other
voices raised in the party for a
frank discussion of its ideologi-
cally nationalistic tendencies and
of its organizational structures
which bear an unpleasant kinship
to those of the Nazis.
The first evidence of a hostile
attitude toward Jews emerged in
1981 when some branches of the
party circulated a calendar con-
taining anti-Semitic propaganda.
When the Jewish Telegraphic
Agecy questioned this at the time,
party officials initially tried to
brush it aside.

Cost of living
up in Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The cost of
living index rose by 19.5 percent
during November, the Central
Bureau of Statistics announced.
It was the first COL index pub-
lished since the start of the
three-months economic package
deal freezing prices and wages,
but it also covered price increases
in the two weeks before the freeze
agreement started.
The index announcement was
greeted with mixed feelngs,
though there was general satis-
faction that it was below 20 per-
cent.
While some economists and
business leaders saw it as herald-
ing a successful outcome of the ef-
forts to halt runaway inflation,
others said the comparatively
high figure indicated that man-
ufacturers and merchants had ar-
tificially raised their prices in the
days before the price freeze halted
such possibilities.
