Hateful Irving still raps Jews

NTISEMITE David Irving is still unrepentant in his claims against Jews - despite being jailed in 2006 over Holocaust denial.
"Jews want to be the bride at every wedding," the British historian told the Jewish Telegraph this week.
"They are never happy unless the world is talking about them".
Irving, who was jailed for three years in Austria, also said: "The Jews are a very sensitive people, so I am not worried about what they have to say.
"They are also their own worse enemy and promote fake history.
"The Jews do themselves a lot of harm - and they never ask themselves 'why us?'.
"I look in the mirror and I know historians don't like me, but the Jews never look at themselves in the mirror."
After Irving's latest outburst, Nazi hunter Dr Efraim Zuroff described the historian as "grotesque".
Irving also stated that only around 300,000 people died at Auschwitz.
"Auschwitz was very small," Irving declared.
"The chief prosecutor at Nuremberg, Robert Jackson, decided to go with the figure of six million."
The Holocaust denier, who takes people to concentration camps as a tour guide, revisited his claim that the number of Jews who died at Auschwitz was deliberately inflated.
"A lot of the buildings at Auschwitz are recreations - such as the watch tower," he said.
"They are fake - they are what the tourist want to see."
Irving takes participants to Treblinka, as well as visiting visit Heinrich Himmler's bunker in Hochward and Adolf Hitler's Wolf's Lair headquarters in Ketrzyn.
Irving's tours, which are promoted on his website, costs $2,500 per person and is limited to 12 participants.
A tasteless poster accompanies it, featuring Hitler and stating: "You are summoned to the Führer's Headquarters!"
Nazi hunter Dr Zuroff described Irving's tours as "totally grotesque".
The director of the Jerusalem office of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre told the Jewish Telegraph: "Taking people on tours of concentration camps and trying to convince them differently over the numbers is insensitive and idiotic.
"It is typical chicanery."
Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham Foxman told the Jewish Telegraph that Irving was an "unrepentant Holocaust denier and antisemite who has never changed his stripes".
He said: "For him to give anybody advice is truly outrageous."
Irving added that he didn't think there was systematic plan by the Nazis to kill Jews - and claimed it was haphazard.
"The British burned thousands of Germans to death during the Second World War," Irving said.
"I would rather have been a Jew being dealt with by the Nazis than the barbaric way the British dealt with the Germans.
Dr Zuroff added: "His comments are insensitive and idiotic.
"To promote his ideas, he again goes on the attack against Jews
"He is ridiculous.
"Unfortunately there are no shortage of neo-nazi aficionados and right-wing people who will take part in his tours."
