Old Holocaust vs. New Holocaust

The inimitable Xrlq writes: "Denying the Holocaust is an imprisonable offense in Germany, but advocating a new one apparently is not."

Case in point:

... more than 1,000 Lebanese and Palestinians staged an anti-Israeli protest at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate on Monday, police said.

A Reuters witness said demonstrators were chanting "death to Israel" and "death to Zionists", while some carried placards bearing the image of Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Police said around 1,200 people took part in the protest at the German capital's famous landmark, not far from a major memorial to the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust.

And I've got a serious troll on my site who denies the first and advocates the second.
