The International Law Court has just ruled that the use of the term "final solution" is to be forbidden and made a crime against humanity and that anyone who uses the term in any way or form, be it in writing, a social media post or even verbal may be subject to arrest and a lengthy jail sentence. This comes almost six months after controversial English media personality and newspaper columnist Katie Hopkins called for a "final solution" following the Manchester Arena terrorist attack. The controversial comment eventually lead to her leaving the LBC radio station.
In a written statement the Court said:
"We the International Law Court have voted overwhelmingly to outlaw the hateful term "final solution" which, as we all know was a term used by Adolf Hitler to commit one of the worst atrocities that the world has ever seen. We were all appalled when one Ms. Katie Hopkins had the audacity to use the term following a terrorist attack earlier this year."
The statement went on:
"Did Ms. Hopkins know how many people she offended when she used that despicable term? So it is in the best interest of all the peoples of this world and with the hope that the Holocaust never happens again, that the term "final solution" will now be forbidden and considered a crime against humanity and that anyone who uses the term in any way, be it verbally, in the print or electronic media or via social media will be subject to arrest and a lengthy jail sentence."
Contacted via telephone to get her take on this latest development, Ms. Hopkins had this response:
"The ILC has to be the biggest joke in the world right now. I find it somewhat ridiculous that the term "final solution" is now a so-called "crime against humanity" but Iranians chanting "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" is quite okay."
