I would like to say that this stuff is all blown out of proportion and a disgrace. It's not about jews or anything of that matter. This is about taking the tighr of free speech away, and is very dangerous for everyone, as the whole reason Hitler almost got away with it in WW2 is exactly because he took people's rights away to speak out and so made draconian laws and so on. As Jews, we cannot be seen to be curbing freedoms and trying to indict this professor. He is a Jewish writer and his father one of the highest rabbis in Italy ! This man has only written a book regarding the blood libels cases of the past. In anycase, why should us Jews be afraid of history, criticism etc. Even if the blood libels were true, and even if they were happening today as some suggest amongst rogue criminal occultic sects, so what ! It's a crime, and those people will be arrested, as they have nothing to do with Judaism and decent jewish people...cont..
