MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) - German prosecutors demanded an eight-year jail sentence on Monday for a neo-Nazi leader they say planned a bomb attack at a ceremony for a new Jewish center in Munich.
Martin Wiese, a high-profile right winger, and three others are charged with being members of a terrorist organization known as "Kameradschaft Sued" (Southern Comrades).
The group was planning to attack a Jewish ceremony commemorating the laying down of a foundation stone for a new Jewish center in Munich. Police foiled the attack, which was scheduled to take place on the day of Hitler's failed coup in 1923 as well as with the 65th anniversary of "Kristallnacht" in 1938 (when Nazi's started to attack Jewish businesses and shops). This was reportably the first "stage" in their attempts to regain power in Germany, but it is doubtful that they could convince Germans to trade their current freedoms and status for the shame that once blackened history's text books.
