- "These Holocaust deniers are very slick people.
They justify everything they say with facts and figures." --Chairman,
New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education (Newark Star-Ledger, 23 Oct.
1996, p 15)
- IRVING WILL SPEND CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRIAN JAIL IN ISOLATION
- As we did write in our prior issue David Irving was arrested
in Austria on the 11th of November, 2005. Since the beginning of his arrest
Irving was kept isolated from the outside world. For the first six days
the Austrian government did not notify the world about his arrest.
- The news came out into the open when Irving's own web
page presented it. Based on the best available information Irving crossed
the border to Austria from Switzerland and he was planning to deliver a
lecture at the Olympia, a university fraternity group in Vienna. The subject
of the lecture was: "the secret negotiations between Adolf Eichmann
and the Jewish leaders in Budapest, Joel Brand and Rezsö Kasztner,
the so-called "trucks for Jews" deal, and British knowledge of
the scheme from codebreaking" (From Irving's own web site.)
- While traveling with a car he and the guests at the student
club both recognized that plain clothes detectives were hanging around,
so Irving started to drive toward the Southern border and he was arrested
on the roadside near the town of Hartberg in the Province of Styria.
- Irving believes that he was tracked by the police, prior
to his arrival: "Despite precautions, the Austrian political police
are believed to have learned of the visit by wiretaps or intercepting e-mails."
- After the arrest he was taken to Graz and a few days
later to Vienna where he is held at 11 Landesgericht Strasse almost totally
segregated from the outside world.
- On the 18th of November I called the offices of Judge
Dr. Peter Seda who is prosecuting Irving. The clerk gave assurances about
a permit to visit Irving. When I arrived on the morning of the 23rd of
November the written permit was issued by the prosecutor's office but I
was not permitted to see Irving by the deputies, in the same building.
Their excuse was that Irving already received a visitor for a thirty minutes
visit that week.
- Judge Dr. Seda is a veteran champion for the cause of
the Austrian Jews. He is on record for tracking internet thought criminals
for at least ten years for "anti-Semitic expressions", "denial
of the Holocaust" and "spreading revisionist literature".
He is also a choice of the local establishment for politically sensitive
cases: He handled the Austrian investigation into the poisoning of Victor
Yuschenko, then a candidate in the elections of The Ukraine, who was poisoned
and was treated in Vienna. (2004)
- Judge Dr. Seda seems to be a dream come true for the
not too popular Jewish community in Vienna.
- Irving was already forbidden to travel to Austria, Canada,
Germany and Australia. Germany fined him $6,000 in 1992 for stating that
the Auschwitz gas chambers were a hoax. He lost his apartment in London
when he lost a trial against Deborah Lipstadt a Holocaust advocate and
the judge labeled him "an active Holocaust denier".
- He was already arrested in Austria in 1984. The present
charges were generated after two speeches in the country in 1989. (Vienna
and Leoben) The arrest was received as great news by the international
cabal of Jewish organizations: Shimon Samuels from the Simon Wiesenthal
Center, Lord Greville Janner the Chairman of the Holocaust Educational
Fund of England, David A. Harris executive director of the American Jewish
Committee, The Southern Poverty Law Center, ADL, etc.
- Only BBC's legal affairs analyst Jon Silverman expressed
some concern: "He remains a showman and may well relish the opportunity
to grandstand before a wider audience if put on trial."
- There were several revisionist historians, scientists,
free speech advocates arrested, prosecuted recently indicating a worldwide
crackdown on those who refuse to tow the party line on the Holocaust.
- Ernst Zundel and Germar Rudof were both arrested in the
US and extradited to Germany to face lengthy prison sentences. Both of
them were married to American citizens and Rudolf also had a child from
this marriage. For the deportation of Rudolf, Deborah Achim field officer
takes the credit proudly on the web page of ICE. (Department of Homeland
Security's U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)) *2
- A Dutch court extradited Siegfried Verbeke to Germany,
one of the founders of the Belgian Vlaams Blok Party. (Vlaams Belang) Vincent
Reynouard, Jerome Bourbon, Camille-Marie Galic, Rene-Louis Berclaz, all
Europeans, all in jail or under indictments for heresy.
- A member of the European Parliament Dr. Bruno Gollnisch
lost his immunity and possible will go to prison for simply stating that
historians should have the right to debate the Holocaust issues. His fairly
innocent statements on the protection of free speech were used against
him by a future political opponent who plans to run against him: Justice
Minister and later Transport Minister Dominique Perben. Gollnisch is second
in line behind Le Pen' at the National Front.
- There are already eight countries with laws against Holocaust
denial: Austria, Belgium, Czech republic, France, Germany, Israel, Lithuania,
Poland, Slovakia, and Switzerland.
- A most dramatic development on November 1st, 2005: ALL
191 nations of the UN - unanimously and without a vote - adopted an Israeli-drafted
resolution declaring January 27 the "International Day of Commemoration
in memory of the victims of the Holocaust". The resolution "rejects
any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or part".
- The UN resolution is providing unheard, exorbitant privileges
to a miniature minority group on this planet. This was Israel's first successful
draft resolution in the history of the UN! The resolution also mentions
a mysterious American citizen by the name of Willis A. Carto as the only
responsible party for the present dramatic circumstances who started the
revisionist movement about three decades earlier.
- Meanwhile, the news of Irving's arrest spread faster
than wild fire around planet earth. Thanks to electronic communications
within hours everybody received the news. Irving is a very popular historian
and a forceful writer. On the 22nd of November the first demonstration
took place in Ottawa, Canada at the front of the Austrian Embassy. Chances
are that we will see far more if Irving is kept in jail for a longer period
of time and every indication is that this is the case.
- On the 25th, Friday there was an important hearing for
Irving in Vienna. The prosecutor decided to formally to charge him and
they also denied his bail offer of $10,000 to $20,000. The decision indicates
that those who are pulling the strings from the background want to lock
up Irving for a longer time, possible for years.
- David Irving's attorney Dr. Elmar Kresbach in Vienna
stated on the 25th: The court refused to release Mr. Irving on bail because
he can easily go to England and England will not extradite him. The case
will go to a "jury trial" with three judges and eight citizens
as jury members. The trial will last probably a single day and the citizens'
only and most likely role will be to rubber stamp the decision. The trial
will take place in January at the earliest and Irving will be sitting in
his isolated jail cell in the meantime.
- Attorney Dr. Elmar Kersbach also issued statements in
the name of his client that his prior beliefs are "not really worthwhile
to hold up" and "Irving is correcting himself". It is difficult
to see Irving backing away from his prior statements like: "more women
died on the backseat of Edward Kennedy's car at Chappaquiddick than ever
died in a gas chamber in Auschwitz". In civilized countries it is
a common practice to disregard all testimonies that were coerced under
pressure, torture, threat of violence, etc. Threatening a 67 years old
man with a prison term that would last for the rest of his natural life,
that is what I would consider the ultimate threat.
- Anything stated or signed by Irving under these circumstances
while cut off from the rest of the world and his supporters - is meaningless.
Irving has written close to thirty books and his value as an original researcher
is undeniable. From the beginning of his career he traveled around the
world to seek out original documents, sources.
- He interviewed a large number of people who were never
touched by the "court historians". He realized early on that
there was a huge void in the history of WWII that was not exposed or touched
by others because of fear. He did fill this void, the job is mostly done,
there is nothing that can be done about it, his work can not be destroyed.
- The history of the whole argument on the existence or
nonexistence of the gas chambers very much resembles the days of the inquisition.
All the presently available instruments of modern science say that there
were no gas chambers in Auschwitz. The Holocaust Dogma, just like the 10,000+
pages operational manual of the IRS became a liquid, ever changing fluid
mass of information. Any individual who is pressured today to believe in
the Dogma can rightfully ask: "Which version should I believe in?"
- Right after 1945 wild accusations were spread by the
international media and the Holocaust crowd. The deaths were reported to
be as high as 14 million, Jews were supposedly processed into industrial
soap and lamp shades. One book, published by Vasziliy Groszman: The Hell
of Treblinka claimed over ten million victims only at the Treblinka camp
in Poland. A whole industry grew out of these lies and sometimes in the
1960s and 1970s a "soft landing" approach was initiated by the
Holocaust gurus. The total death rate was gradually lowered, first to 6.5
million and later to 6.0 million.
- The Auschwitz death toll was lowered from 4 million to
1.1 million where it stands today and Jean-Claude Passac who is an organic
part of the Industry tells us that the true number is more likely to be
in the 300,000 to 500,000 range. Needless to say: There is no arrest warrant
out against Passac and he still resides in his own home unlike David Irving
and many others.
- The soap and lamp shade stories were dismissed as minor
historical mistakes. We were simply supposed to forget about the prior
miscalculations. While all these modifications were going on nothing ever
happened to those who did the recalculations - as long as they were Jews.
- A special privilege was created for the Holocaust that
was not extended to any other event of world history. Anybody can research
the victims of genocide in the Soviet Union, in Cambodia or the Ukraine
and express just about any opinion and remain a free man.
- To keep Mr. Irving in jail with a possible twenty years
jail term hanging over his head is a harsh treatment, even if measured
by the yardstick of the Medieval times. Galileo Galilei did not spend time
in jail for crashing head on with the religious establishment of his own
- It is time for us to follow the simple logic of our elders:
If we want to know who rules, we will have to take a look at those whom
we are not allowed to criticize.
