Germany's Jewish community accused the Church of Scientology of insulting this country and victims of the Nazis in an advertisement in The New York Times. Ignatz Bubis, chairman of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said the advert "compares the persecution of Jews during the Nazi era with the handling of Scientologists by German state offices". Mr Bubis said the advert, which includes an imperial eagle and swastika, is "an insult".
