A British YouTube blogger who has waged a relentless Holocaust denial campaign online narrowly avoided a jail cell on Thursday, after being convicted last month for posting antisemitic content.

Amateur musician Alison Chabloz, 54, was sentenced by a British judge to 20 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, for threatening messages and antisemitic songs that she posted to her YouTube channel.

Chabloz’s channel remains accessible on YouTube, with warnings flagging its content as offensive. It includes speeches by Holocaust deniers and Palestinian solidarity videos, alongside what is billed as the main attraction: a selection of openly antisemitic songs sung to the camera by Chabloz, in performances that bring to mind the more sinister characters created by famous British film director Alfred Hitchcock.

In one ditty, titled “(((Survivors))),” Chabloz mimicked what she apparently believes is a typically Jewish accent while singing lyrics that defame the survivors of the Nazi death camps as liars motivated by financial gain.

Chabloz was convicted of two counts of sending an offensive, indecent or menacing message through a public communications network and a third charge relating to a song on YouTube, the BBC reported.

Sentencing Chabloz, Judge John Zani told her, “It appears to this court that no proper remorse is forthcoming from you.”

Zani continued: “I don’t know whether you want to be a martyr to your cause. Only time will tell. This sentence will test your resolve. If you fail to abide by the terms of the suspended sentence you should expect to go to prison.”

The first legal proceedings against Chabloz were brought privately by the UK’s Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), and were later taken over by the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service.

The CAA welcomed the sentencing of Chabloz on Thursday.

“Alison Chabloz is a remorseless and repulsive antisemite who has spent years obsessively inciting others to hate Jews, principally by claiming that the Holocaust was a hoax perpetrated by Jews to defraud the world,” CAA Chairman Gideon Falter said in a statement. “District Judge John Zani refused to make her a martyr, leaving her a pathetic and insignificant figure who now has to learn to muzzle her incitement or face immediate imprisonment.”
