A right-wing extremist politician in Germany who said the Talmud condones sex with children received probation. Claus Cremer, deputy chairman of the North Rhine-Westphalia branch of the National Democratic Party of Germany, was sentenced to three years of probation for anti-Semitic agitation. Cremer had demonstrated against the construction of a new synagogue in Bochum last summer, repeating the falsehood that the Talmud condones sexual relations with 3-year-old girls.
