French politician suspended from teaching job over call for historians to debate

Front National MP Bruno Gollnisch has been suspended from his position as a university professor over his “controversial” comments regarding the WWII gas chambers supposedly used by Germany in an attempt to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth. Gollnisch teaches Japanese civilization and international law at Jean-Moulin University in Lyon. He has said that he will appeal his suspension to the Conseil d’Etat, which is France’s highest administrative court.

What were these “controversial” remarks? Why was he suspended “in the interests of the department”? Shockingly, the professor said that, while he is not an expert on WWII, he thinks that historians should be allowed to debate the existence of the gas chambers and that the debate should be free and open. Apparently, in France, simply calling for a free and open debate without stating an opinion one way or the other is simply too much to be tolerated.

The history of the Holocaust is set in stone, and no debate whatsoever is to be allowed. To suggest otherwise is to invite the loss of your job or even a prison term.
Holocaust as a religion; no questions allowed
