A former member of the FPÖ thinks the Mossad assassinated Jörg Haider, according to The Jerusalem Post:
While local Austrian authorities declared an inebriated Haider to have died as the result a high-speed car crash last week, Karlheinz Klement, a former member of Haider’s ex-party, the Freedom Party, asserted that the Mossad had assassinated him.

If you read the rest of the article, you’ll understand why the Israelis still have a problem dealing with Austria. Jörg Haider was not as bad as he is painted here, but he still said any number of appalling things during his political career. Attitudes like his understandably give many Jewish people pause, even if he did say those things cynically, for the purposes of political gain.
The current FPÖ and BZÖ policies towards Iran and Israel are not encouraging, either. It makes life difficult for those of us who are trying to forge a Counterjihad alliance that includes Jews, European nationalists, and Israelis.
We’ve got our work cut out for us.
