"La Monde of 28 March 2000 says that the Great Mufti of Jerusalem, in the presence of Pope John Paul II, accused, on the 25th of March, Israel of ***having exaggerated the extent of the "Holocaust"*** in order to get international support. (Emphasis in original)
This is, I think, the first time that the equivalent of a chief of state made such a revisionist claim, being in his official position. Franjo Tudjman had only written a somewhat revisionist book; he had spoken as an author or as an historian.
Ahmed Rami told me that he had received more than a million of visits on his site in 15 days. (Editorial comment: Rami owns <http://abbc.com/islam/>)
Iranian television produced a TV series on Revisionism. I got the video but, unfortunately, I do not understand Persian. Anyway, it seems very good (except for the technical quality) and really dramatic. You could see Garaudy, Pierre Guillaume, some other French people and myself. I am shown speaking (in Vichy, or in French courts, or in Stockholm) for quite a while. (...)
A 700 page book has been published yesterday: Histoire du négationisme, in France. Quite surprising! More about that later!

We see the act of displaying a written document on Internet as the equivalent to displaying it on the shelves of a public library. It costs us a modicum of labor and money. The only benefit accrues to the reader who, we surmise, thinks by himself. A reader looks for a document on the Web at his or her own risks. As for the author, there is no reason to suppose that he or she shares any responsibilty for other writings displayed on this Site. Because laws enforcing a specific censorship on some historical question apply in various countries (Germany, France, Israel, Switzerland, Canada, and others) we do not ask their permission from authors living in thoses places: they wouldn't have the freedom to consent.
We believe we are protected by the Human Rights Charter:
