David Irving comments:

TODAY [NZ time 8 a.m. August 10] I was interviewed by Radio New Zealand. Here is my diary note on some of the day's events.

Brian H. reports from Konstanz am Bodensee! I thought you might be interested to know that Ephraim Kishon, in an interview with Bild am Sonntag this week, said of you '... er schreibt Bücher, wunderbare Bücher. Ein genialer Mensch.' High praise indeed..."
   I reply: "He and I both had the same publisher, Langen-Müller. Then years ago he clumsily called me an anti-semite or something, and I extracted a written apology."
   I inform the New Zealand Herald: "You will see from my website today that while the Jewish community in Wellington is 'considering' whether to offer a reward for the arrest of the perpetrators of the cemetery outrage, I have today offered a one thousand US dollar reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the scoundrels behind it. I will be happy to let your newspaper act as arbitrator.

AT 3:24 pm Radio NZ's "Nine to Noon" producer Lisa Palmer phones, they will do the interview at 5:05 p.m. EST. She says that the NZ newspapers today [see left] report my view as being that the Jewish Community were the perpetrators. I said, I don't think I put it like that.
   She then phones and brings it forward an hour. It would be 8:05 a.m. in NZ, with a Linda […].
   When she phones at 4:05 pm, however she lets slip that they are recording it, for the usual reasons no doubt. She mentioned Gray J's Judgment early on. I take it calmly, say that I had had the greatest respect for British high court judges until recently, even after the Lipstadt Trial, but that this respect had been "dented" by the reports issued by the judges Lord Hutton and Lord Butler, effectively clearing Tony Blair in the Iraq affair.
   I had hoped to make a quiet visit to NZ for research purposes and to accept the speaking invitation; the Jews have themselves kicked up this monstrous fuss. While the NZ Jewish community who, let's face it, are richer than I, are "considering" whether to offer a reward I have actually offered one, a thousand bucks with no strings.
   I let fly against the people smearing me in my absence and at extreme range; my reward offer has rather thrown the enemy obviously. I say that if right wing nuts have perpetrated the desecration, let them take what's coming to them; but I think it may be people more sinister behind them, like the Mossad.
   Later I say that when most editors hear a story has a Jewish connection, their buttocks clench, and they go into Delta-alarm mode. I don't. I treat the Jews as just the same as any other kind of group.
   Any other, asks Linda?
   Yes, I am known to be obnoxious, and one group I have recently waded into are waitresses.
   I say that most New Zealanders will agree that it is time for the Jewish community to stop trading on their victimhood and to start living normal lives.
   She closes on the note of the ban against my boarding the plane to NZ in California next month. I say that I shall be at the airport, and if I am denied boarding it will be the beginning of the mother of legal battles.
   The ordinary New Zealander moreover will take it as proof that the government is being wagged by this minuscle tail of 7,000 [Jews]. Nonplussed, she ends the interview rather abruptly at this point; or perhaps I imagine it was abruptly.

Jewish graves vandal hunt focuses on early-morning drivers

By James Gardiner

POLICE hunting the vandals who attacked Jewish graves in Wellington are tracking down anyone known to have been driving through the city early on Friday.

David ZwartzAs the investigation continued into two attacks on Jewish graves in just three weeks -- the other was at the Bolton St cemetery -- British historian David Irving infuriated the Wellington Jewish community by suggesting its own "disordered members" might be responsible.

[...] "I totally reject that," Jewish Council chairman David Zwartz (left) said yesterday. "I challenge him to substantiate it."
