Global Holocaust-deniers bill passed in Knesset

by Nina Gilbert

LEGISLATION that would make Holocaust-denial committed overseas an offense under Israeli legal jurisdiction was approved unanimously in first reading by the Knesset on Tuesday [July 20, 2004]

The passage of the measure would enable Israel to demand the extradition of Holocaust-deniers for prosecution.

The bill was drafted by MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) as a move against former 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.

It is likely to serve as a deterrence [sic. deterrent] against Holocaust-deniers visiting Israel, although the possibility of countries consenting to extradition on the offense is unlikely.

The legislation expands the territorial jurisdiction of the Israeli law against Holocaust-denying outside of it [sic] borders."survivors"

[Under the new law anybody who doubts that these two young gentlemen pictured in the New York Daily News after Sept 11, 2001 really were Holocaust survivors, can be extradited to Israel to face the music.]
