Other names/alliases: Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident / Patriotische Europäer gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes

- PEGIDA is an anti-racist, fanatically pro-Israel street protest and conference group that focuses on the 'Islamisation of the west'
- The name of the PEGIDA group is written from an external perspective 'the Occident', indicating it was formed from an exterior perspective or by a psychology that percieves itself as outside of 'the Occident', this correlates with the well established claim that it was founded by Israeli emigrants in Germany, including former IDF personnel. This is further corroborated by the fact that PEGIDA put Israeli speakers (who claimed to have German ancestry) on stage at several of its events in Germany.

Primary reasons for Condemnation:
- PEGIDA does nothing whatsoever to fulfill even its stated objectives of opposing the Islamisation of the West, because it is anti-racist and can never advocate removing the migrants who carry the religion of Islam. In this regard and due to its prominent Israeli founders and speakers at protests it should be condemned as a false opposition movement, to ensure that Germany fails to resist Islamisation and demographic replacement.
