A major split in the leadership of the neo-Nazi National Front has been triggered by the Front’s weak showing in the recent general election, in which its vote dropped by over half — from 2.9 percent to 1.3 percent. The election defeat has sparked a row between John Tyndall, the party leader and Martin Wabster, its activities organizer, who according to press reports, has been “suspended” from duty. Despite the Front’s reverses, Jewish defense leaders here warn that it is still a dangerous threat.
