Daniel Cohn-Bendit (born 4 April 1945) of the Kohanim line is a Jewish self-confessed paedophile and Marxist, involved in the politics of France and Germany. Cohn-Bendit was born in Montauban, France, to Jewish parents. He began his political life as a student subversive in the unrest of May 1968 in France. Nowadays, he hides behind the mask of Green politics and is currently co-president of the European Greens–European Free Alliance in the European Parliament. With reference to child rape the former German Foreign Minister, Klaus Kinkel, published an open letter to Cohn-Bendit in the Berliner Zeitung on 31st January 2001, demanding clarification as to whether there was actual physical contact with children. A response was published in the same newspaper from Cohn-Bendit, saying he was “not aware of the problem. We tried a collective discourse of a new sexual morality yet to be defined”. One wonders if the ‘we’ to which he referred was Harriet Harman and her friends in the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE).
