The French court this week ordered server companies to block indefinitely the “Participatory Democracy” website, which specializes in spreading antisemitism and promotes hatred through the Internet.

The decision was made following a legal process led by the French prosecutor’s office in Paris, following numerous complaints against site operators submitted by the National Bureau for Combating Antisemitism in France (BNVCA).

“The decision is significant and will contribute to the fight against the spread of anti-Semitic messages on the Internet,” wrote Yedidya Cohen, a news correspondent for 0404.
