A German nationalist party called Monday for tighter security measures aimed primarily at immigrants, while again insisting that Islam is incompatible with democracy as Germany's election campaign entered its final stretch.Alternative for Germany, known by its German acronym AfD, is on track to enter parliament for the first time in Sunday's national election with about 10-percent support in recent polls. Gauland says it wants to prevent the "Islamization of Germany". Gauland and Weidel were short on specifics about how their proposals could be put into practice, but will likely never have to provide details since any measures would have to be approved first by parliament as well as overcome constitutional challenges. Other parties say they won't include AfD in a new government.
