Johannesburg’s High Court ruled that a hearing must be held on a six-year-old complaint against a Muslim radio station that engaged in Holocaust denial. The dispute centers on a 1998 interview with Yacoub Zaki, a historian at the Muslim Institute in London, on Cape Town’s Radio 786. “I accept that 1 million-plus Jews died during the Second World War, but I dispute the fact that they were murdered, that they were killed by gassing,” Zaki said.
