Some of the comments below are quite graphic:
“Arab history and school books also make no mention of the Holocaust. The Islamic Archives Foundation in Germany, however, is trying to change that.”
German Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries said she would like to see Holocaust denial — already a crime in some European countries — become punishable by up to three years in prison in all 27 of the bloc’s member states.
“We have always said that it should not still be acceptable in Europe to say the Holocaust never existed and that six million Jews were never killed,” Zypries said recently. “I am optimistic that over the next six months we will manage to get a result,” she said.
Germany’s timing could not be better given the recent formation in the European Parliament of Identity, Sovereignty and Tradition, a far-right group headed by Mussolini’s grand-daughter Alessandra and French National Front leader Jean-Marie le Pen.
Rather than going after Holocaust denial, why don’t they mandate better Holocaust education? Although, given the sheer horror of the Holocaust, and the fact that several European nations were involved directly, I can see how European countries need different laws than America to protect their citizens and subjects.

Von Brunn Email Appeared on Committee on the Open Debate On the Holocaust, ie deniers
In 2004, CODOH reproduced an inflammatory email entitled “Time to FLUSH all “Holocaust” Memorials,” written by none other than future USHMM gunman, James von Brunn. Jonnie Hargis reply approvingly to the hateful spam in his next post. The thread has been preserved here and the email has also been preserved here. Note especially that Hargis had no problem with von Brunn being described as a Revisionist in the thread header. It appears that there are few ideological prohibitions – on the right – as to who can be a Revisionist. Rabid antisemitism is certainly not discouraged.
Was Nick Griffin of the British National Party once the security guard for discredited falsifier of history, David Irving?
