"HOLOCAUST denier" is
the term which now routinely replaces the
smear "anti-Semite." I have never written
a book or even an article on the

Since polls show
that 75 percent of the population in most
civilised countries in the world is now
anti-Semitic (by Jewish definitions), to
be accused of being part of this evident
majority no longer carries the sting it
did in, say, the Thirties. It is like
saying, "Irving has two eyes, a nose and a

function there, but at another location in

patrol cars many this little town's force
had. "Ten," said the officer, adding:

"Nice comeback, that,"
said the officer, and we shook hands and
parted. He had also stated that his orders
were to protect my safety, in case the
traditional enemies of free speech tried
to use violence.

American Jewish Committee, for example,
held an important major conference on
anti-Semitism in 1946, when the Jewish
community was in utmost turmoil and worry
that anti-Jewish hostility from Europe
(where a less than flattering Jewish
history was long and well-known) might
spread. Major Jewish organizations began
here to lay the groundwork for the massive
propaganda campaign, the campaign that has
so totally engulfed us today in
establishing the "Holocaust" as the
monolithic shield against criticizing
Jewry and protecting them from further
hostility -- the "Holocaust" as, of
course, the pillar of unassailably
sacrosanct Jewish moral worth in the

Irving; Holocaust denier threatens lawsuit against
DAVID Irving did not receive a
warm welcome Tuesday when he arrived at the Mark IV
Motor Inn in Moscow
The internationally known
threatened to sue the establishment when he was
ordered to leave upon his arrival.
"I have contacted my attorneys and I plan to sue
for $2,000 in damages and breach of contract,"
Irving told the Daily News as he left the
Until he arrived in town, the details
surrounding Irving's visit were limited. According
to his Web site, he planned to host an event
somewhere in Moscow. At approximately 4 p.m.
Tuesday, Mark IV manager Jeff Cheser
realized his hotel was the chosen location when
Irving entered the lobby.
Cheser began to receive inquiries early in the
week about an event associated with the Holocaust
revisionist. He heard from several people that
Irving said he would speak at the Mark IV. When he
looked into the situation further, Cheser
discovered a reservation for a gentleman by the
name of Alfred Holden.
"I called the number
listed with the reservation and was told that no
one by that name (Holden) lived there," Cheser
said. "We will close up early so this event
can't take place. It will hurt business tonight,
but, in the long-term picture, we won't be
identified as a supporter of an anti-Semitic
event. This is private property, and we have the
right to refuse service to anyone. I'm not going
to rent this guy a room."
The Moscow Police
Department was notified when Irving tried to
check in, but he left before the officers
A few blocks away, on the corner of Jackson and
A streets, three police cars lined the sidewalk
behind a Black Lincoln Town Car. Irving stepped out
of the SUV and spoke with the police for several
minutes, after he was served with a notice of
trespass from the Mark IV.
Moscow Police Capt. David Duke
described the incident as a routine stop, and said
Irving was free to reschedule his event at another
location. But, he added that police would respond
if Irving returned to the Mark IV property.
Officers parked across the street from the motel to
keep an eye on things.
Despite the unfriendly welcome, Irving found a
place to carry on with his event.
Shan Dudley at the AmeriHost Inn on
Warbonnet Drive, said Irving had reserved space
months in advance under a different name. She added
that no one at the hotel was aware of the subject
of his discussion, which reportedly attracted a
handful of people, or that Irving was a Holocaust
Wherever Irving spread his message, Cheser is
just happy it wasn't at the Mark IV. At around 6
p.m. on Tuesday the sign outside the Mark IV
restaurant read "CLOSED TONIGHT
"We won't promote any anti-Semitism here,"
Cheser said. "We received calls from protesters all
week saying they couldn't believe we were allowing
Irving to use our space, I told them that wasn't
going to happen."
