    Has anyone been taken to court in Europe yet for criticizing Christians or Jews, or does there tend to be just one religion where criticism is discouraged, either through violence, intimidation, or through the courts? That religion forms the subject of this thread.

    Just because people are against the policies of Israel, does not mean they are anit-Jewish...... Does that mean if I am against the policies of France that I am anti-Christian? Does it mean if I am against the policies of India then I am anti-Hindu? Of course not... but nice try...

    This from the same guy that constantly accuses anyone that disagrees with Obama, as a racist.

    Double standard much?

    Oh. I see.

    I guess you haven't heard of the people in various European countries that have been charged, tried and stripped of their civic rights for the crime of Holocaust denial. Same hate speech laws, different target. Now how about that?

    Denial of the Holocaust is ignorant but laws denying ignorant people to speak out is something up with which democracies must not put. But we are not talking Holocaust denial here, a law that was passed some time ago and one which would receive little sympathy today. Even acknowledging that Holocaust Remembrance Day exists is being protested,

    But there seems little doubt that Jews are receiving a bad time in Europe and that the attacks on Israel is also an attack on Jews.

    There is more, and it is everywhere.
