New-Europe-Wide Laws To Outlaw Only One(1) Form Of "Holocaust Denial"

Seems that I was smart to, thankfully, ask a comrade to get me some books, and to get some books I bought in Athens , out of Athens a few years ago.

David Irving informs us about the Financial Times report that ,predicts new Europe-wide laws to criminalise "Holocaust denial" will pass but include no other atrocities. We understand ... uh, no, we don't ....

Offenders will face up to three years in jail under the proposed legislation, which will also apply to inciting violence against ethnic, religious or national groups.

In an attempt to assuage Turkish fears, several EU diplomats said the provisions would not penalise the denial of mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman troops in the aftermath of the 1915 collapse of the Ottoman empire

Diplomats in Brussels voiced confidence on Tuesday that the controversial plan, which has been the subject of heated debate for six years, will be endorsed by member states. However, the Baltic countries and Poland are still holding out for an inclusion of “Stalinist crimes” alongside the Holocaust in the text – a move that is being resisted by the majority of other EU countries.
