"Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death."
George Orwell

Professor Robert Faurisson who attended the recent Holocaust Conference in Iran is apparently the first of the participants that could face legal punishment. French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy who recently warned the French Parliament of a resurgence of revisionist theories announced that Faurisson might be brought to court for the comments he made at the "unacceptable" Tehran meeting.

Douste-Blazy told reports about France's ongoing persecution of Faurisson including his being dragged into court and even being banned practicing his profession, teaching at universities for refusing to accept the politically "correct" version of the Holocaust story. Faurisson has been convicted of violating France's thought-crimes laws five times.

The conference was attended by 67 scholars from 30 countries and found "unacceptable" by the powers in Israel, Europe and the United States. Tehran has been widely condemned for hosting the conference.
