Netherlands: Arab Organization Will Face Charges for Holocaust-Denying Cartoon

THE HAGUE – Prosecutors announced on September 2 that the Arab European League will face trial for publishing a cartoon denying the Holocaust in response to caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed, the AFP reported on September 2.  Prosecutors have found that the cartoon is punishable, “because it offends Jews on the basis of their race and/or religion,” however in the case of the Prophet Muhammed caricatures, prosecutors announced they would not put far-right MP Geert Wilders on trial for posting the controversial cartoons on his website.
