Google, Yahoo and Twitter are all hosting antisemitic websites and content … which violates Spanish law.

The title of my blog post is a quote from this news article: https://www.thejc.com/news/world/think-tank-to-sue-google-twitter-and-yahoo-over-holocaust-denial-content-in-spain-1.459133

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

While denial is not illegal in Spain, justifying the Holocaust or any other genocide is an offence punishable by imprisonment.

The Lawfare Project – known also for a legal challenge against the shechita ban in Belgium – has a legal team in Spain specifically committed to funding legal actions in the country on behalf of the Jewish community.

Its Spanish counsel, Ignacio Wenley Palacios, said: “Google, Yahoo and Twitter are all hosting antisemitic websites and content on their platforms which violate Spanish law.

“This cannot be allowed to continue. If they do not respond positively to the cease and desist letters sent last week, we will file lawsuits against them.”

End quote

So Spanish law forbids the hosting of antisemitic websites and content? Hopefully, no such law will be passed in the USA. If such a law is passed, my goose is cooked. I hope that it will not be against the law, to say or write “My goose is cooked.”
