Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA) held their weekly rally today in Dresden. Last week 18,000 Germans turned out at the rally.

This week PEGIDA cancelled their weekly rally in Dresden after threats by ISIS.
AFP reported:

Germany’s anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement said it has cancelled a planned march on Monday, citing a death threat against organisers from the Islamic State jihadist group.

“Cancelled! Dear friends, unfortunately we must cancel our 13th meeting due to security concerns,” the group “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident” said on its Facebook page on Sunday.

“What in police jargon is called an ‘abstract threat’ has changed to a ‘concrete death threat’ against a member of the organising team. IS terrorists have ordered his assassination.”

PEGIDA posted this on their Facebook page on Sunday.
All of the other PEGIDA rallies will be held as planned.
