in her speech in the Parliament in Munich, they had attacked the AfD is sharp: “This so-called Alternative for Germany bases its policy on hate and exclusion and not only for me, on the floor of our democratic Constitution,” said the Chairman of the Israelite cultural community of Munich and upper Bavaria.
