Holocaust Denial Law

Holocaust Denial Law

Deny the Holocaust anywhere in the world and you could face extradition to Israel.

That is what is says in a law before the Israeli parliament.

It doesn’t mater if you are and American in Long Beach, CA or or an Englishman in London, England or anybody anywhere, if you don't toe the line of the "Chosen" then they want you in jail.

That want it to be illegal anywhere in the world for any "facts" about the holocaust to be questioned in any way, shape, or form.

You must not even query the "six million" figure even though we have shown that this dates back to at least 1902.

This outrageous law is an infringement on the sovereignty of all the nations of the world.

This bill passed its first reading in the Israeli parliament on July 20, 2004.

Holocaust denial may be under Israeli jurisdiction

By NINA GILBERT, Jul. 19, 2004

Holocaust denial committed overseas would be an offense under Israeli legal jurisdiction and serve as grounds for extradition under legislation that is expected to pass a first reading in the Knesset this week.

The government is backing the bill, drafted by MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union). Eldad originally proposed the measure as a move against then Palestinian Authority prime minister Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) for his doctoral dissertation 20 years ago in which he estimated that the Nazis killed less than a million Jews.

But the bill is unlikely to be anything more than declarative in nature. Countries that do not have laws against Holocaust denial are unlikely to extradite citizens to be tried in Israel for the crime, although Israel's protective measure would not require such a law to be on their books, according to Justice Ministry officials. Another problem is the fact that Holocaust denial is a crime of expression, and most countries treat such crimes liberally.

A more practical implication of the law is that it would deter Holocaust deniers from visiting Israel.

In 1994, Israel extended its legal protection abroad for the state and its citizens to Jews and Jewish institutions, which enables it to obtain justice for them as it does for Israelis. At the time, the idea of including Holocaust denial in Israel's exterritorial laws was considered, but eventually dropped.

Eldad said the amendment to the law in Israel, where Holocaust denial is a crime, is necessary because "almost all" of those crimes are committed abroad.

He said he believes the law is going to be "very practical," since violations would give Israel the right to demand prosecution even if it does not request extradition.

He said it would also enable Israel to file counter suits if Jews are sued for libel for labeling Holocaust deniers.

The law would also "send a signal to a Holocaust denier like Abu Mazen," that if he enters Israel he is a "criminal," Eldad said.

Moreover, he said the passage of the law would send a message that for the Jewish people there is "no statue of limitations" on the Holocaust. "The generation of survivors is dwindling," he noted, emphasizing the need to keep Nazism from rearing again.

Avner Shalev, chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate, said the passage of the law would provide an "added tool" to fight against the phenomenon of Holocaust denial.

"It sends the message that Israel is against Holocaust denial everywhere and anyone who engages in it is not welcome in Israel," Shalev said.

The bill has the support of Knesset factions on the Left and Right.
