Wyweb, the question is whether Israel Shamir is actually a holocaust denier: i.e. Assange is not defending a holocaust denier, but someone who has been accused of being holocaust denier and denies being a denier.
Having read some of Shamir's web site his defence against the charge is fairly convincing. He is no David Irving and specifically says that it did happen, but that it is not qualitatively different from other genocides.
