French Holocaust denier sentenced to prison for publishing denial material on website
April 16, 2019 9:47 am

(JTA) — Holocaust denier Alain Soral was convicted and sentenced to one year prison in France for publishing material denying the Holocaust on his website.

It is the second conviction and prison sentence for Soral, a far rightist, since the beginning of the year.

A Paris court convicted Soral, 60, on Monday and ordered him jailed. He was not in court and a warrant was issued for his arrest, The Associated Press reported.

Holocaust denial is a crime in France.

Soral’s lawyer, Damien Viguier, was fined more than $5,000 euros ($5,600) for complicity. On Soral’s website, Equality and Reconciliation, the lawyer announced that they would appeal, the French language Le Figaro newspaper reported.

In January, Soral was sentenced to one year in prison for insulting a judge and making anti-Semitic comments on his website. He was during his appeal of the conviction.

Thomas Jefferson: "Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself; ... she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate ; errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them."
"There is a principal which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principal is contempt prior to investigation."
-- Herbert Spencer

I hope the French establishment are holding their heads in shame. It is truly disgusting that you can be imprisoned for Holocaust revisionism in Europe.

They don't have any shame - that's the whole problem. They talk endlessly about human rights yet they don't even support the right to free speech. Alain Soral has been prosecuted for stating that inmates of concentration camps were not turned into soap and that it was a fake atrocity lie. Yad Vashem and Deborah Lipstadt agree with him.

There are 2 sides to every story - always listen or read both points of view and make up your own mind. Don't let others do your thinking for you.
