The dapd news agency reported Wednesday that Martin Wiese was convicted by a state court in Gemuenden, near Frankfurt, of incitement and making threats at a neo-Nazi rally last year.


Wiese had argued that his comments that journalists at the rally should be tried by a Nazi-style court and sentenced to death were taken out of context.


In 2005, Wiese was sentenced to several years in prison for leading a terrorist group that discussed attacking a synagogue.


Wiese was found guilty of membership in a terrorist organization for heading the group, which collected weapons and discussed how it could stop a 2003 dedication ceremony at the Munich synagogue.
