Europe's Right-Wing Parties Take International Spotlight

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Last weekend's tragedy in Oslo has drawn international attention to Europe's far-right political parties, which had been gaining power in several European nations in recent years. Confessed attacker Anders Breivik stated allegiance to their anti-immigration and anti-Islamic platforms. Where do these parties go from here? Can they tone down their rhetoric and maintain their niche in the political landscape?

Nicholas Kulish, Berlin bureau chief for our partner, The New York Times, reports on this story in today's paper.

You described the terrorist as 'Christian' to distinguish him from Islamic terrorists, which they thought he was at first, but he isn't Christian in any sense, doesn't belong to any church, and has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.
