Dutch to Prosecute Muslim Group Over Holocaust Caricature

Dutch to Prosecute Muslim Group Over Holocaust Caricature

by David Lev

Prosecutors in the Netherlands have decided to charge an Arab group for publishing a caricature on its website that insults the memory of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. The caricature, according to prosecutors in the Dutch city of Utrecht, insults Jews as a group and is therefore banned for publication in the country.

According to prosecutors, the offending group, the Arab European League, would likely face a fine for publishing the caricature, although the offense carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail.

The caricature depicts what appear to be two Jewish men standing near a pile of skeletons. Next to them is a sign that reads “Auswitch,” a reference to the Auschwitz concentration camp. In the cartoon, one of the men pokes a bone with a stick, and says to his fellow, “I don’t think they’re Jews,” while the other responds, “We have to get to the six million somehow” – implying that the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust was somehow inflated by Jews for political purposes.
