  1. Germany’s Anti-Islam Protests Plunged into Darkness

    The city lights went out in Cologne. In Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate went dark. It’s a counter-protest against a rising anti-Muslim group, known as PEGIDA, whose protests drew 18,000 in Dresden — but were met with thousands denoucing them elsewhere. The ultra-right-wing group welcomes neo-Nazis and hooligans. Some liken the anti-Muslim sentiment to anti-Semitism — not really a comparison anyone wants to hear coming out of Central Europe. But PEGIDA doesn’t appear to be slowing down.
