    Sweden Refuses to Cooperate in `Holocaust Denial’ Inquiry

    Sweden has refused to summon a journalist for questioning in a possible German prosecution of Richard Williamson, the fundamentalist Catholic clergyman who caused a furor by questioning the scale of the Holocaust. Prosecutors in the German city of Regensburg admitted Thursday the inquiry was effectively stalled. Williamson, a British leader of the Society of St Pius X (SSPX), gave an interview last year to a Swedish TV journalist near the German city, where the SSPX, an advocate of old-style Catholicism, has a seminary. A re-broadcast of the interview this year, just after Pope Benedict XVI ended the excommunication of Williamson and three other SSPX leaders, triggered a storm worldwide.

    Population studies show that 5 million to 6 million European Jews were killed by all causes,including death camps, starvation, disease and battle, during the Nazi period.
    What does that have to do with the article? They just wanted to plug that in there to assure everyone that it did indeed happen? Seriously?

    They now count even Jewish soldiers in the German military as casualties of the holocaust?

    You're right.
    Quite a strange thing to put in there.


    About the issue of the article:
    It's actually not a mater of refusing.
    According to Swedish law it just can't be done.
