Germany Shuts Down Islamist Newspaper

According to Expatica Germany has banned a Turkish-language Islamist newspaper for inciting racial hatred and denying the Holocaust, both crimes under German law.
Despite warnings, the newspaper recently ran a letter headed "Hitler was right". In December last year, a member of parliament held up an issue that claimed "There Was No Holocaust" and appealed to the government to ban the paper.
