    Austria: Man Convicted of Glorifying Nazi Ideas

    VIENNA – An Austrian court has convicted a man of glorifying Nazi ideology and sentenced him to two years in prison.

    The court in the southern city of Klagenfurt found the 85-year-old man, who was not identified, guilty Wednesday of "re-engaging" in Nazi-era beliefs.

    The prosecution had accused him, among other things, of glorifying Adolf Hitler and Nazi beliefs in two books. The Austria Press Agency said the man is a veteran of the SS, which acted as a special police force during Nazi times.

    Austrian law bans the glorification of Hitler and the Nazi era, as well as attempts to diminish, deny or justify the Holocaust.

    Hmm, I'm reading this right aren't I? So engaging a belief is illegal.

    As long as you make it public, if this belief glorifies nazism according to the law, then yes. The person in question was considered a threat because he published books where he made his ideas known.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.
