CLOSING THE CANON ON THE HOLOCAUST?

Would the U.S. pro-Israeli Holocaust resolution mooted in the UN chill legitimate historical research on it, especially in countries where “denying the Holocaust” is a crime? Could this constitute “an establishment of religion” paid for by U.S. tax dollars? (Our UN diplomats [I use the term loosely!] aren’t volunteers!!) Could it presage criminalization of it here?? What about genocides of Christians in the Muslim world, “secular” Turkey, etc.? What about the six million non-Jews the Nazis killed?
