She was sentenced to 6 months for saying gas chambers weren't real in a unique case where most seem to agree free speech doesn't hold. Agree?

By Bobby Sargel The very fact that the question is raised, only serves to convince me as an Israeli and Jew, that given the current hate fest building up once again against Jews, requires that we take whatever steps are necessary to defend ourselves. One only has to look at the forms of incitement and hatred being condoned in American universities to grasp the fact that the authorities are readily condoning this.

By Larry W. Gray I agree wholeheartedly. Hitler murdered nearly half the Jews in the world, and the German government is doing everything in it's power to INSIST that the world never forget that. Even old women. I wonder if the "old woman" in the story would have a different viewpoint if she had been an old Jewish woman, naked, desperately hugging her beloved (but useless to the Germans) Grandchildren to her body, as people screamed in horror, as they were being gassed and suffocated with insect killer? And before the Germans burned her lifeless body, they yanked the gold teeth out of her mouth and kept her hair to stuff mattresses. I don't have much sympathy with Nazis, Neo or otherwise, and do not think that some of them are "fine people."

I am surprised they jailed an elderly, very confused woman. Why not go after the younger people who deny the holocaust and spew other hate speech towards the Jews on university campuses ? Jailing one old lady is not going to change things. Jailing a pile of students might be cause them to rethink the way they speak about others. People are just jealous of the Jews because they are so blessed with smarts and good looks and they have the land back -well some of it anyway- promised to their forefathers and their descendants after them !
