A woman in Britain said to be a virulent anti-Semite has been found guilty of spreading offensive messages and material over the Internet and was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison by a magistrate court.

Reports say that Alison Chabloz, 57, who is known for promoting Holocaust denial, is expected to serve nine weeks in prison for violating the country’s communications act after she promoted anti-Semitic rhetoric and ideas on the GAB social-media service in two interviews she did with far-right online sites.

GAB has been under fire for being utilized by far-right extremists.

“Today’s verdict and sentence finally give the Jewish community justice and protection from someone who has made a vocation out of denying the Holocaust and baiting Jews. It also sends a clear message to those who might be tempted to go down the same path,” said Stephen Silverman, director of investigations and enforcement at Campaign Against Antisemitism, in a statement. “This is not the end. Ms. Chabloz now faces even more serious charges on other matters that we have brought to the attention of the police. We will not rest until all anti-Semites like Alison Chabloz are behind bars, where they belong.”

In 2018, Chabloz received a suspended sentence for singing songs that claimed the Holocaust was a “bunch of lies.”

According to the Daily Mail, in issuing his ruling, District Judge Michael Snow told Chabloz: “I’m not sentencing you on the basis that you are anti-Semitic, I’m not sentencing you on the basis that you are a Holocaust denier. I’m sentencing you on the basis that on two separate occasions whilst subject to a suspended sentence, you participated in a radio program where you made grossly offensive comments.

“The grossly offensive contributions by the defendant to both programs are insulting to members of a vulnerable community,” continued Snow. “The need to protect that community from such gross offense is a pressing social need.”

    Too much literature still around.
    It’s only people like author Peter de Rosa going back to 1988 making public disclosures, without reservation .
    Peter was a graduate of Gregorian University,Rome ,was professor of Metaphysics and Ethics at Westminster Seminary for six years and Dean of Theology at Corpus Christi College, London for six years.
    He has since left the priesthood and married with two sons.

    *Humbly and with Penance to all of the Victims of the Holocaust reads the forward in his book.
    His references had horrible and long records of publishing antisemitic rants and he could’ve been rebuked at the time of writing by papal writ but never was such was his credibility.

    Excellent outcome! There has been too much of that type of garbage coming out of England, in the last decade or so. It is great, that this Majjie told it exactly how it was and is. [Lizzie via Bendigo]
