Austria: Secret video ensnares far-right leader


In the video, the woman can be heard telling Strache that she is very wealthy and wants to buy a large block of shares at Austria's largest newspaper, the Kronen Zeitung. She reportedly claims to be interested in the paper so that she can provide favorable pre-election coverage of the FPÖ. In return, she demands political favors.

German parliament condemns 'anti-Semitic' BDS movement
Parliamentarians said some BDS slogans recalled Nazi propaganda.
The resolution was brought by all the centrist parties in the German Bundestag, including Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union, the Social Democrats (SPD), the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) brought its own alternative resolution, calling for an outright ban on BDS. The socialist Left party brought a milder resolution, calling for the condemnation of any anti-Semitic BDS statements.

Speaking in Friday's debate on the issue, CDU Bundestag member Axel Müller reminded the chamber that upholding Israel's right to exist remained a basic principle of the German state. He also claimed that the BDS campaign's social media accounts [!] showed that it was occasionally influenced [!] by the "propaganda of the [Nazi] dictatorship."

uh oh. Fake news is not well understood.
