Fury is spreading through the Arab world

following the Israeli attack that killed 18 members of one family in Gaza. Led by ambulances with sirens wailing, tens of thousands of grieving Palestinians poured into the streets to bury the victims. Screaming for revenge against Israel and America, the mourners carried the bodies past the shelled apartments, ahead of funeral prayers and burial.

People across Germany have joined in sombre reflection on the 68th anniversary of Kristallnacht - the night Nazi's destroyed thousands of Jewish synagogues, businesses and homes. But more than 60 years on from Hitler's death and politicians are warning neo-Nazis are making a terrifying return. For Germany's Jews a sign of revival -

a new synagogue in Munich, replacing one destroyed by Adolf Hitler.

A great celebration, but it's been clouded by the revival of the far right.

Neo-Nazis parading through the capital. No swastikas, no Hitler salutes but they openly call themselves National Socialists and they are gaining support.

In some parts of Eastern Germany, where unemployment is high, this party won more than 70% of the vote in recent elections. TRANSLATION: When we are in power every German will have a job. We will put an end to globalization and foreign infiltration. Then Germans will have a future. And listen to these lyrics.

"I'm a Nazi in my heart and my soul," he sings, "and I will be forever." It's a Nazi rock concert in the heart of Berlin. Nazi ideology didn't disappear in Germany with the death of Adolf Hitler more than 60 years ago. It still has supporters but now German politicians and police are warning that right wing extremist groups are gaining in confidence and strength.

And growing more violent. Across Germany there's been an explosion of neo-Nazi brutality. In two years the number of attacks by right wing extremists has jumped by 50%. This man was attacked by 15 neo-Nazis as they piled out of a tram.

They started to hit me on the head, to kick me, to kick my head several times with five or six shoes. I could not recognise my face. The attackers were jailed but the victim expects more violence. The danger is people are killed because they have black skin colour, because they are Jews, or something.

That is a problem. But this man proves there is hope. Once a committed neo-Nazi with a Hitler moustache,

he has now rejected the far right. It is not only a German problem, it is a European problem because you have movements like this in every European country An ideology of evil which is refusing to pass into history.

The Prime Minister will raise the issue at APEC in Vietnam next week. More and more Australians are taking a personal approach to helping the environment by producing their own green power. And there are simple steps to make conventional power go a lot further. 81-year-old John Smith has seen some changes in his time, but he reckons it's time we all made the change to green power.

Well, it's the environment, too, I think you've got to be interested in it. Somebody's going to have to live here for a long time. The former farmer produces his own solar power and even trades with the main electricity grid. He's loving the savings on his bills.

Nearly $500 before and it's come down to $160.

He's not the only one taking a personal approach to using green power. 20% increase in sales just for grid tie systems in the last six months. Solar is the best alternative power supply in our sunburnt country, but setting up isn't cheap. A reasonably priced system may well be about $20,000 and that's usually enough to supply an efficient home with all the power they need.

Other simple devices can also drastically reduce power usage. North facing and good insulation, you get an efficient building that's cheap to run, environmentally sustainable and quite possibly the way of the future. Of course, the sun isn't the only way to produce electricity. There's also a growing focus on harnessing the power of wind and water. Personal wind turbines can produce enough power

for the average Australian home, but are only suitable if you have a constant wind supply. Water generators need a strong constant flow or steep countryside to be viable. Either way there are choices available to those keen to be green. Andrew Leahy, Ten News. Now national weather for the rest of the day:

First you have to wait nearly nine years for an Australian tour which is then postponed for eight months. And to top it all off, you have to queue three days in the cold. We've been here since about 1:30 Wednesday afternoon. And how's the weather been? It was terrible yesterday. Fresh, very fresh. But this group of Sydneysiders wouldn't have it any other way. Welcome to Sydney, boys. Long overdue.

It's about bloody time! Keen as. Wouldn't be camping here otherwise. Everyone's here for the same reason. Sort of uniting I guess. With sleeping bags and a couple of pool floaties, it's a home away from home. Welcome to cardboard city. Add to that some bad singers and front row in the standing area is well worth the wait.

Thankfully, the real rock stars hit the stage in Sydney tonight. And if the opening show in Brisbane is anything to go by, fans are in for a visual feast.

Bono and the boys head to Adelaide next, before two final shows in Melbourne.
