    What exactly is the "crime" here? Offending people?

    European countries, in general, do not have our first amendment principles.

    It's a shame, given that the liberties enshrined in our Constitution were originally considered British liberties.

    Jews are a protected class in Europe.

    Also, if you publicly deny any aspect of the official Holocaust story.

    You can go the prison for up to 5 years.

    It's not in the USA, I suppose the crime was breach of peace and aggrivating minorities.

    Do you really need me to remind you of the terms for protected groups you cannot use in America?

    The so called Holocaust is the one historical event that historians won't examine or debate out of fear for their jobs and university tenure.

    Which brings up the question: If the Holocaust history is so perfect with no flaws. Then why are the authorities soo afraid to allow contrary opinions?

    What are they afraid off?? :confused:

    Opinions we may not like should still be protected.
