A Prague court ruled that a neo-Nazi group can march through the cityâ€™s Jewish quarter on Kristallnacht.
This is the second time that the court has overturned a City Hall ban on the march by the National Resistance, according to the Czech daily Lidove noviny.
The rally is scheduled for Nov. 10, the anniversary of the 1938 German pogrom.
Prague officials banned the march, saying it would contribute to inciting intolerance and hatred against citizens on the basis of their ethnicity, origin and religious conviction.
Pragueâ€™s Jewish community will gather the same day for prayers to remember the victims of Kristallnacht, according to Lidove noviny.
The Eurasian Jewish Congress condemned Armenia for honoring Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The Iranian president was presented with an honorary doctorate Monday at Yerevan State University, as well as a gold medal. Ahmadinejad was visiting Armenia for a two-day state visit.
In an interview with the Rosbalt news agency, Eurasian Jewish Congress representative and Armenian Jewish community President Rima Varzhepetyan expressed outrage at the decision to honor Ahmadinejad.
“The constant anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli rhetoric of the president of Iran, as well as the regularly organized statements in denial of the Holocaust, place Ahmadinejad in line with theories not unlike those of Dr. Goebbels, one of the chief ideologues of Nazi ideology in Germany,” Varzhepetyan said.
