An umbrella group of European rabbis is moving its March conference from Vienna to protest the scheduled inclusion of the the extremist Freedom Party in the Austrian government. The Conference of European Rabbis has not decided where the meeting will be held, but says it does not feel comfortable meeting in Austria as long as the party headed by Jorg Haider, who has made pro-Nazi statements and whose party contains an anti-immigrant platform, is part of the ruling coalition.
