Holocaust-seminar in Switzerland?
Switzerland is one of the few European countries to prohibit the denial of the Holocaust. This blog, although being clearly pro-Israel, has always been of the opinion that such repressive law violates the freedom of expression, favours a politically correct understanding of history and is thus of genuinely totalitarian nature.
Under such circumstances, it appears quite difficult to understand how the socialist minister of foreign affairs, Micheline Calmy-Rey, can suggest to Iranian officials to hold a conference on "different perceptions of the Holocaust" in Switzerland. If I were to suggest such thing, there would dimmediatley be some leftist moralists available to sue me in the name of political correctness. However, Micheline Calmy-Rey (whom some call Calamity-Rey), whose one-sided statements against Israel and whose pro-terrorist sympathies are notorious, can suggest to Iranian revisionists to do what is precisely punishable to normal citizens.
I can only say that I am ashamed to have such a person being paid with my tax money.
