The Netherlands: Arab European League fined


Dutche News:

The Arab European League has been fined 1,000 by a court in Arnhem for carrying a cartoon on its website which suggested the holocaust was invented by Jews, reports Friday's Volkskrant.

The cartoon featured two men in suits discussing how to boost the number of people killed during the holocaust.

The court ruled the cartoon was 'highly offensive' to Jews. The total fine was 2,500 with 1,500 suspended. Abdoulmouthalib Bouzerda, head of the AEL who drew the cartoon, was acquitted.
