Jean Marie Le Pen18. October, 2008
Charged, convicted and under political sanctions in France.
Background and contribution:
The flamboyant French leader of the “Front National”, the largest and most promising nationalist political party in Europe, “belittled” the Holocaust and called it “a mere detail, a footnote in the history of WWII” – apparently using the phrase on three different occasions! He was recently convicted in a French court under the Communist-inspired Gayssot Law. He was given a steep fine and forbidden to run in elections for the next two years. Le Pen is undeterred, even though politically victimized for years by the French political establishment and a disgustingly hypocritical, largely Jewish-dominated French media.
