An alleged Holocaust denier won his fight against extradition to Germany yesterday. Dr Gerald Toben, 64, is accused of publishing anti-Semitic material on his website.
The Australian academic is wanted to stand trial for posting the alleged items between 2000 and 2004. The German authorities claim they are 'of an anti-Semitic and/or revisionist nature'. In the European Arrest Warrant issued in October 2004, he is accused of approving of or playing down the murder of the Jews by the Nazis.
But District Judge Daphne Wickham ruled the warrant invalid today at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, saying it contained inadequate detail about the offences.
It neither states the name of the website nor where the propaganda is said to have been published from - only referring to the 'world-wide internet'.

People should be allowed to believe in any foolish things they wish without punishment.

Just there mere fact that thinking in such a way is actually illegal, should clue you in on who really controls things behind the scenes. Maybe then you wouldn't think it's foolish.
