Leading German politi-
cians have meanwhile called
on all the country's main-
stream parties to join in
combatting the right-wing
Republicans.
The call came following
the firebombing in late Mar-
ch of the synagogue in the
northern port town of
Lubeck.
In the days after the
firebombing, Ignatz Bubis,
the leader of the German
Jewish community, said that
all of Germany's right- wing
extremist groups were col-
lectively responsible for the
attack.
Franz Schonhuber, leader
of the Republican party, said
in turn that the fault for the
firebombing lay with Mr.
Bubis.
Mr. Schonhuber, a former
member of the SS, described
Bubis, a Holocaust survivor,
as one of the country's
"worst agitators," adding
that the Jewish leader was
"responsible for anti-
Semitism in Germany."
This week, the vice chair-
man of the Christian
Democrats, Johan Gerster,
called for a change in Ger-
man law so that "the cancer
of the Republicans does not
threaten our society."
The chairman of the Social
Democrats, Rudolph Scharp-
ing, adding his voice to the
condemnation of
Schonhuber and his
followers, said that the
Republicans are paving the
way for more arson attacks
in Germany.
Mr. Bubis has meanwhile
repeatedly stated that he
will not file a law suit
against Mr. Schonhuber.

Such a move was
necessary, according to
German prosecutors, in
order to take Mr.
Schonhuber to court for his
charges against Mr. Bubis.
The decision of prosecutors
not to prosecute Mr.
Schonhuber on their own
has been widely criticized in
Germany and abroad.
The leader of the German
Jewish community in the
state of Lower Saxony,
Michael Fuerst, has sug-
gested that Jewish commu-
nal organizations file
charges against Mr.
Schonhuber, but Mr. Bubis
has rejected that idea as
well.
Mr. Fuerst has also called
for a ban on the radical right
German People's Union.
The Social Democratic
Party recently announced
that it will seek legislation
outlawing Holocaust denial,
but it is questionable as to
whether the majority of the

Franz Schoenhuber:
Right-wing leader.

German public would sup-
port such a measure.
According to a new opinion
poll conducted throughout
Germany, only one German
in three supports legislation
that will impose legal mea-
sures against right-wing ex-
tremists who deny that the
Holocaust ever occurred.
The survey indicated that
37 percent of those polled
favor such legislation, while
47 percent prefer education
and discussion as means to
convince Holocaust deniers
that they are wrong. Nine
percent think that Holocaust
denial should be acceptable.
People from the former
East Germany — 47 percent,
according to the survey —
were more inclined than
their counterparts from the
western portions of the coun-
try to impose legal sanctions
on Holocaust denial.
The survey, which was
conducted April 6 and 7, was
based on interviews with
1,000 Germans. ❑

Anti-Semitic
Remarks Made

Budapest (JTA) - For the
first time since World War
II, a member of the
Hungarian Parliament has
openly made anti-Semitic
remarks in that body.
During a speech to the
legislature, Gyula Zacsek, a
member of Parliament rep-
resenting a small right-wing
party, sharply criticized the
involvement of an Israeli
firm in the privatization of a
Hungarian supermarket
chain.
Mr. Zacsek — employing
the anti-Semitic rhetoric
often used by Istvan Csurka,
the leader of far-right
elements in Parliament
—concluded his attack on
the Israeli firm by saying
the business deal was an ex-
ample of the "Zionist plot"
against Hungarians.
