Heh (I can’t resist one last tweek):
Poor old David Irving, he must be kicking himself after being released early by the Austrian authorities.
Had the discredited Holocaust denier been set free just a few days earlier, he would have been able to shoot off for a few days to sunny Iran, in the company of David Duke and an assorted rag-bag of other dangerously deranged Jew-haters.
Of course, whether the anti-semitic revisionist would have taken centre stage or would have been forced into the shadows by the arguably more abhorrent Aaron Cohen of the Neturei Karta is a moot point.
But don’t worry. Even though these two pariahs weren’t destined to meet up in Tehran this week, it can only be a matter of time before we see them shaking hands, kissing and smiling for the cameras as they congratulate each other on their mutual disregard for the truth – a disregard that is shared by the loathsome Mahmoud Ahmadenijad.
Indeed, given the Iranian President’s interest in challenging the facts of history, one wonders how long it will be before he invites speakers from around the globe to debate whether Irving was ever actually in an Austrian prison at all – or whether it was all just a myth propagated by his supporters in a bid to win support for their cause.
Don’t worry. I’m sure he’ll make it to Tehran sooner or later.
