My reason for asking this is because of the blatant anti Semitism displayed by a small minority of cowards in the Holocaust thread. Certain posters are disputing the six million figure, others are saying that their were no gas chambers and others are sourcing fake newspaper articles claiming that the six million figure was around since 1860. Crazy stuff and most sane people will just see it for what it is ie Nazi Jew hating lowlifes with nothing better to be doing with their time. The laws are in place in many major European countries such as France, Germany, Belgium, Bosnia/Herzegovina and have been an unqualified success.
The holocaust of six million Jews, the horrific, suffering that they endured not just in WWII but throughout the centuries represented a nadir in human civilization. Their unjust sacrifice must never be forgotten, may it never have been in vein. That a country like Germany, a country that gave the world great art and music could allow itself to fall to such barbaric proportions. However, it has to be said that the majority of peace loving Germans wanted no part but knew the consequences if they disobeyed the Nazis.
What do you think, should their be holocaust laws in Ireland? if the mods could put a poll up, that would be very much appreciated.
