German prosecutors have opened an investigation into the founder of the anti-Islam PEGIDA movement for slander after he compared the justice minister to Hitler's head of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.At a rally in Dresden Monday, which German media said drew about 8,000 people, Lutz Bachmann said Social Democrat (SPD) minister Heiko Maas was the "worst spiritual fire raiser" since Goebbels and Karl-Eduard von Schnitzler.The comment is the latest in a series of provocative remarks made at the regular rallies of Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA).Social Democrats, who share power with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives, expressed outrage at Bachmann's comment.
