    It does seem horribly akin to "thought crime".

    Besides, most EU countries already legislate against "hate speech".

    Yeah I've always thought it odd that we have to have a specific crime for just one example of what is already a larger body of hate speech or incitement.

    It's not what I've seen on the television that leads me to lose faith in mankind... while many people experience the evils of the world from the comfort of their own living room some of us have had the misfortune of experiencing certain evils in the world first hand...

    Which is also an blatant infringement on free speech, and one which is (unsurprisingly) arbitrarily applied.

    As indeed pretty much every airport in the world does if you joke about bombs.

    Necessary? Interesting debate!

    I'm sure you can tell the difference between your example and promoting a conspiracy theory concerning historical events.

    The torch of Nazi antisemitism has been passed to the Arabs who are intent on supassing everybody in their hatred of Jews.

    Well...

    In the building where I live, I think there's at least 5 Arab families, but none so far explained me they felt the urge to exterminate their Jewish neighbours across the hall.

    (Bless be Allah!)

    And I have to make you remember that at least 20% of Israeli citizens are Arabs and behave rather peacefully.

    So don't make things more tense than they already are with irresponsible generalizations.

    Strictly speaking Arabs are semitic themselves.

    Strictly speaking, my dear Lark, you seem very receptive to true anti-Semitic propaganda, even if you don't seem especially aware of it. Should we blame the conservative Catholic cultural context, since this is not your first warning?

    Next time, you will explain you have Jewish friends and start to quote Naturei Karta madmen.

    I'm not saying you're Anti-semitic, but rather than you're playing with fire. And the sooner somebody will make you realize it, the better.

    There is no such a thing as "Semitic people". "Semitic" is an adjective that refers almost exclusively to linguistics. The other way it has been used was to depict Jews and Jews only.
    The meaning of a word is defined by its current use, not by its etymology. Now please, can you open a dictionary?
