German parliamentarian Christian Lange on Tuesday called for the banning of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from attending the World Cup games that Berlin will host this year. He told Israel Radio that no German political party approves of the Iranian president's position on Israel. He added that Germany would not transfer money to the Palestinian Authority so long as Hamas did not recognize Israel's right to exist. Simon Wiesenthal Center said that Ahmadinejad's presence at the World Cup games in Berlin would be reminiscent of the Nazi leaders attending the Berlin Olympics in the 1930s, and would disgrace the memories of the Holocaust victims, Israel Radio reported.
