The biggest problem was likely to be violence by hooligans, she told the BBC News website, although Germany's far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) had been operating "cleverly" to win media coverage in the run-up to the World Cup.

The party gained publicity when it was forced to withdraw 10,000 copies of a leaflet with a racist theme which fell foul of German law.

The NPD has also announced plans to hold rallies in Leipzig, the only World Cup host city in the former East Germany, when Angola plays Iran. The far-right has said it will support Iran for the anti-Semitic comments of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

However, analysts believe the demonstrations - if the Leipzig city authorities allow them to go ahead - are likely to be too closely monitored to be the source of major trouble.

I have a question on one single sentence of the above.

The far-right has said it will support Iran for the anti-Semitic comments of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The above should be:

The far-right has said it would support Iran for the anti-Semitic comments of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The reason is that you should maintain the same tense in a single sentence.

I can't take in the reason to right 'far-right' here. Why can't it be 'far right' ?

I would agree with the words 'anti-Semitic' here. Because the word 'comments' is a noun and the words 'anti-Semitic' modifies the noun. In order to consider the words 'anti-Semitic' as a single unit or rather word, you would write 'anti-Semitic'. I hope I am correct.

Not necessarily. If the condition still appertains, it can remain in the will-form.
I can't take in the reason to write 'far-right' here. Why can't it be 'far right' ? -- It should indeed be far right. The hyphenated form should be saved for adjectival use, just as with anti-Semitic.

Isn't it being used as an adjective to describe the party?

The liberal Green party but the ultra-liberal Green party. The far-right conservatives. The right-wing conservatives.

Ah, yes, of course-- in the first instance (Germany's far-right National Democratic Party). I was looking at the second occurrence (The far-right has said it will support Iran).
