The newly elected leader of Germany's main Jewish organization said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a "second Hitler" who should not be allowed to attend the World Cup, according to comments published Thursday. Ahmadinejad should not be allowed to set foot on German soil, said Charlotte Knobloch, according to the top-selling Bild newspaper. Knobloch was elected Wednesday as president of Germany's Central Council of Jews. "For me this man is a second Hitler," the newspaper quoted Knobloch as saying. "He denies the Holocaust, that is illegal in Germany. The German government should therefore not protect him with diplomatic immunity. The authorities should rather investigate him and charge him." Ahmadinejad has indicated more than once that he might visit the national team during the World Cup, though no specific plans have been announced.
