Recall that when Pamela Geller and I were banned from entering Britain, the Home Office sent me a letter saying that allowing me into Britain would be “not conducive to the public good” because I made the true statement that Islam “mandates warfare against unbelievers.” Then it came out that one email from the Home Office’s massive team investigating Geller and me noted that the dossiers making the case to ban us were filled with information about our “pro-Israeli views,” and argued that this material be removed, lest we “argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel” — which indicated that that support was indeed a factor.
And now this. So Pamela Geller and I were banned and at least some people in the Home Office thought our support for Israel constituted evidence that we should be banned. Then the Home Office allows in these anti-Semitic neo-Nazis from all over the world. What does that tell us? It tells us that the British establishment is deeply afraid of offending Leftists and Islamic supremacists, and desperate to appease them — hence our ban, as absurd as it was. It also tells us that Jew-hatred is deeply embedded among that same British establishment, so that no one batted an eye about admitting these Nazis, or thought their laughing at genocide and promotion of another was “not conducive to the public good.”
Doomed Britannia Update: “Nazi invasion of London EXPOSED: World’s top Holocaust deniers… filmed at secret race hate rally where Jews are referred to as the ‘enemy,'” by Nick Craven, Paul Cahalan and Simon Murphy, The Mail On Sunday, April 19, 2015:
Nazi sympathisers, Holocaust deniers and their supporters from across the world have held a sickening secret rally in Britain at which speakers unleashed anti-Semitic rants, referring to Jews as ‘the enemy’ and ‘children of darkness’.
The meeting of the shadowy organisation will fuel fears of a growing resurgence in hatred towards Jews across Europe. The vile event was observed by a Mail on Sunday undercover team.
Held in London’s Victoria, the meeting was, said experts, the most significant gathering of Holocaust deniers Britain has ever seen, with speakers invited from Spain, Canada and the United States.
Today, the largest Holocaust remembrance event ever held in Britain will mark 70 years since the liberation of concentration camp Bergen-Belsen by the British Army.
But last Saturday, just a short walk from New Scotland Yard, it was clear that the sinister anti-Semitic conspiracy theories which led to the extermination of six million Jews are still fostered by a poisonous few.
In a room draped with the Union Flag, as the event called the London Forum unfolded, the audience:
Sniggered at the mention of ‘ashes rising from the death camps’ crematoria’;
Applauded as they were urged to ‘identify, counter and break … Jewish-Zionist domination’;
Laughed at the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and as an African leader at the Paris memorial ceremony was described as ‘some Negro’;
Cheered at the mention of a brigade of Spanish Fascists who fought for the Nazis;
Heard gay parents branded ‘monster families’ and mixed race children described as ‘blackos’.
Last night, there were calls from Jewish community leaders for police to investigate the group for race hate crimes.
‘The material from this white supremacist group makes ugly reading,’ said barrister Jonathan Arkush, vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
‘On the face of it, their proceedings should be investigated to ascertain whether criminal offences have been committed, including incitement to racial hatred.’
The Mail on Sunday has passed its evidence to the Metropolitan Police.
The star speaker at the event was Spanish self-confessed Nazi Pedro Varela, 57, whose adoration for Adolf Hitler and the murderous Third Reich is unbridled.
He was arrested in Austria for praising Hitler in 1992 and he declared to a baying crowd in Madrid on the centenary of the Fuhrer’s birthday: ‘There were never any gas chambers in Auschwitz.’
Also present was America’s leading peddler of Holocaust denial and ‘revisionist’ theories, Mark Weber, 63, director of the Institute for Historical Review, based in Newport Beach, California. He wrote in 1989: ‘The Holocaust is a religion. Its underpinnings in the realm of historical fact are non-existent – no Hitler order, no plan, no budget, no gas chambers, no autopsies of gassed victims, no bones, no ashes, no skulls, no nothing.’
Our team of reporters and photographers watched as the participants – including a handful of women – gathered under Victoria Station clock, awaiting orders. Gerry Gable, editor and publisher of anti-Fascist Searchlight magazine and leading expert on the extreme Right, who worked with the MoS on our investigation, said last night: ‘This is the biggest and most significant meeting of Holocaust deniers that Britain has ever seen. It is a very worrying development.’
Many of those present were familiar faces from the British far-Right of the National Front and the British National Party, some of whom had been jailed for violence and public order offences.
For security reasons, none of them knew where the London Forum was being held, so in ones and twos the attendees were shepherded across the station concourse by former private school art teacher Michael Woodbridge, 69, who conspicuously carried a book by British Union of Fascists leader Oswald Mosley.
His tie clip was another chilling reminder of the BUF – its emblem clearly modelled on the infamous lightning bolts insignia of Hitler’s SS storm-troopers.
Woodbridge, contacted at his cottage in North Wales yesterday, told the MoS: ‘It is fairly assumed by people at the meeting that the Holocaust is an exaggeration to put it mildly. It has been used as a propaganda weapon to justify the war against Germany.’
The meeting’s visitors didn’t have a long journey – they were just yards from the four-star Grosvenor Hotel, where the plush Orient Suite, tucked away on the first floor, was booked out for six hours under the pseudonym the ‘Carlyle Club’ and draped with the Union flag.
Nervous-looking hotel staff loitered outside the room as the crowd began to file into the room, each person closely scrutinised by a well-built man wearing a black shirt on the door.
At the London Forum, Pedro Varela’s words were carefully chosen, as he admitted shortly after being introduced by the event’s ‘host’, former soldier Jeremy (‘Jez’) Bedford-Turner, 45.
Varela told the meeting: ‘We have to measure our words… I was asking Jez “can I say everything I believe in this forum?” He told me “as long as you do that in an academical [sic] way, in a serious way, it’s possible.” ’
Nevertheless, Varela, speaking in heavily accented English, referred to mixed-race children as ‘blackos’ and described gay parents as ‘making a monster family’.
He added: ‘They say Jews have the gold in the world and the power in the press and they are going to rule the world… So, do we have to be realistic, be similar to the officer of the general staff of an army… What are the enemy’s faults? We should also be smart and clever, as are the children of darkness… Sometimes we are not that smart.’
He also appeared to call for a boycott of Jewish shops and businesses, saying: ‘In the Middle Ages, the Jews had all the gold in the world but they were living in the ghettos. They still have the gold of the world and are the masters of it…
‘But now the gold is important for us. It is like a sword. If we say, OK fine, I have no more interest in your gold and your money and your shops and your consuming, the wax sword is going to melt.’ Approached yesterday by our reporter in Barcelona, Varela said, when asked whether he denied the Holocaust: ‘There’s a law in Spain comes into force in June which prevents me from answering that question so I have to be very careful with what I say.’
Asked if he was a Nazi, he said: ‘It depends what you mean by Nazi’, adding: ‘I didn’t live in Germany in the Hitler era but National Socialism offered a lot of solutions that were beneficial then and could be beneficial to modern-day society.’
Mark Weber’s speech bore a title straight from 1930s Berlin: ‘The Challenge of Jewish-Zionist Power’.
He said: ‘The Jewish connection covers all areas and reaches every level. Most Americans may not even sense this gigantic effort, but there is scarcely a Jew who is not touched by its tentacles.
‘In reality, the Jewish hold on American life is far more dangerous. Why? Jews in America have a strong loyalty to a foreign country – Israel.
‘Secondly, because of the distrustful and sometimes adversarial way in which Jews view the rest of us. This “chosen people” mindset, this “Us vs Them” attitude, is anchored in centuries of Jewish history and heritage.’
When Weber quoted from a rabbi’s essay about European anti-Semitism with the line ‘Hatred lingers in the air into which the ashes rose from the crematoria’, he earned himself applause along with sneering laughs.
With his audience clapping appreciatively, he added: ‘As long as the power of the very powerful Jewish lobby remains entrenched, there will be no end to the systematic Jewish distortion of history and current affairs… No task is more important or pressing than to identify, counter and break this power.
‘Today, we are engaged in a great global struggle which pits a self-assured and diabolical power which feels ordained to rule over others on the one side, and all other nations, indeed humanity itself, on the other.’…
