Wiesenthal Centre seeks Internet Censorship
Published: 1995-12-07

December 7, 1995

Members of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre requested that Italian Prime Minister Lamberto Dini back their initiatives to ban "racists" and "extremists" from the Internet.

Italy has been specifically targeted to support the Orwellian-ban because Italy takes over the European Union presidency on January 1, 1996. The Wiesenthal Centre would like the enforcement of Internet Censorship to occur on a European level.

Simon Wiesenthal, known for hunting down those deemed "war criminals" advocated censorship of the Internet in a speech that he made to the United Nations in New York in November.

Wiesenthal uttered the following appeal to the U.N. "Technology without hate can be so very beneficial for mankind, but in conjunction with hatred it leads to disaster."

The specifics of the Wiesenthal Centre's proposals have not been detailed.
