The leader of
Austria's Jewish community called on a right-wing politician to drop his
campaign for re-election to the European Parliament after he was quoted
as likening the European Union to the Third Reich in Nazi Germany.
Andreas Moelzer, co-lead candidate for Austria's
far-right Freedom Party (FPO) in the May EU election, made headlines
when a German paper quoted him as calling the EU a dictatorship that
made the Third Reich look "informal and liberal" by comparison.
