Germany's right-wing AfD adopt anti-Islam manifesto

Frauke Petry, party leader of Alternative for Germany (AfD) votes at a party congress on May 1, 2016 in StuttgartGermany’s right-wing populist AfD Sunday adopted an anti-Islam policy in a manifesto that also demands curbs to immigration, as a poll showed it is now the country’s third strongest party. Formed only three years ago on a eurosceptic platform, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) has gained strength as the loudest protest voice against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s welcome to refugees that brought in over one million asylum seekers last year. With the migrant influx sharply down in recent months, the AfD has shifted focus to the signature issue of the xenophobic Pegida street movement, whose full name is Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident.
