Legislation that would make Holocaust-denial committed overseas an offense under Israeli legal jurisdiction was approved unanimously in first reading by the Knesset on Tuesday.
The passage of the measure would enable Israel to demand the extradition of Holocaust-deniers for prosecution.

Webmaster note: Does this remind anyone else of the Eichmann kidnapping? One wonders how Israel, a country that wasn’t even in existence during the period in which Eichmann was charged with committing crimes, got away with circumventing the United Nations, trampling the sovereignty of a foreign country, and then executing a man after a hearing in a kangaroo court. We’d better all hope that mainland China doesn’t start taking on airs in this fashion!
