Irving is Free!

Happy news in time for Christmas – David Irving was released from his Austrian jail and apparently left for England. This is the best finale for the Tehran Conference; pity he was not there, but surely this conference was not the last one. On the picture below – Irving is being set free in the court.

The Jewish newspaper Haaretz noticed that the judge who allowed the old historian to go back home for Christmas was “a sympathiser of Jorg Heider”, an Austrian right-winger. The newspaper forgot to mention that Heider would qualify as a soft leftie in the Jewish state. The newspaper never told us about political sympathies or relation to Jews of the judges who sentenced Irving and who tried Zundel.

Merry Christmas, Dr Irving, and all our readers! Let us hope for speedy liberation of other prisoners of Zion, from Marwan Barghouti to Ernst Zundel!
