    I was not talking about "punishing" Irving. But I care about the danger such people represent, spreading lies motivated by pure hate against the Jews. Such people are continuing what Hitler has done,as hiding the Shoah was part of the Nazis'policy. Of course Irving is not going to tell 7 000 000 or 8 000 000 Jews were killet during the Shoah,but I don't wish anybody to tell this,as it's not true. I just wish people to say that more than 5 000 000 Jews were assassinated during the Shoah,because this is the truth. Tell me Roxanan,how can you think that I would be conforted by a lie ? I feel very attached to the truth,which is my n°1 value, in front of love, courage,intelligence, etc... Your words ("flatter") are so superficial,hurting and insulting... When the topic is the Shoah,we're not talking like carpet-sellers would bargain, can't you understand that ? Can't you show a little respect for other human beings ? And how could a lie increasing the number of Jewish victims "flatter" me ?
