LIPSTADT: IRVING SHOULD BE FREE
Stephen Smith, chair of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust [says] “Behind the words sits a devious ideological intent. ... It is incitement to genocide." Bradley Smith asks: "If revisionist arguments are an incitement to genocide, which is one of the many apologies that the Holocaust Industry uses to morally legitimate its censorship and imprisonment of those who question it, what is intellectual freedom an incitement to? "
The Jewish academic who defeated the notorious British historian David Irving in court has called for him to be released by Austria where he is being held on Holocaust denial charges.
Professor Deborah Lipstadt, whose successful defence of a High Court action brought by Irving saw him branded an anti-semite by Mr Justice Gray, claimed prosecuting him would give him much-needed publicity.
