Alliance '90/The Greens is a German Leftist party. It was founded in 1980 and had Marxist leanings in its beginnings.

Positions

The Greens are in favor of Environmental policies such as the establishment of a speed limit on German highways. They are also very Islam-friendly. The Greens support dual citizenships[1] and Islam lessons in schools.

In April 2013 the party was criticized because of its push in the Bundestag to label Israeli products from the West Bank. Politicians from the Free Democratic Party and the Christian Democratic Union and reminded them of the German history as a reference to the boycotts of Jewish business under the Nazis. In May 2013 Frithjof Schmidt, the vice president of the party in the German parliament stated that the Greens reject a boycott of Israeli products.[2][3]
