Neo-Nazi group banned in Germany (home office)

The German government has banned a neo-Nazi far-right group called “Nordadler” (Northern Eagle), active primarily on social media, announced Steve Alter, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

“From this morning police operations are carried out in four regional states,” the Interior Ministry spokesman reported on his Twitter account, referring to home searches of members of that group.

“Right-wing extremism and anti-Semitism have no place on the internet either,” said Steve Alter.

Police carried out raids in the regions of North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony, Brandenburg and Lower Saxony on Tuesday morning.

It is the third neo-Nazi group banned this year.

“Nordadler” uses the symbols and language of the Third Reich cultivated the nostalgia of Adolf Hitler.

The violently anti-Semitic group “Nordadler” had a project to establish a neo-Nazi community somewhere in the German countryside.

The members of the group had expressed sympathy in the Telegram messaging towards the person who was about to commit an attack on a synagogue in Halle.
