Apparently much more took place behind the scenes at the highest levels of governments about the cancellation of the Beirut Revisionist Conference than even "insiders" know. This one has all the earmarks of a watershed for the ever more frantic Holocaust Lobby.
Had the Holocaust Lobby not panicked and run shrieking interference about this conference, chances are this would have been merely a traditional, historical, lost-in-minutae, ever-so-correct, civilized and somewhat ad-hoc Revisionist get-together.
See what we got ourselves because the Lobby blinked first?
The story has gone on the wire. We can expect hundreds and hundreds of spin-off articles, interviews, commentary, studies etc. - without having to pay one red nickel. Officials at the highest level now know - in case they didn't know before - just how much there is at stake for the Zionists to keep their lie alive a little while longer.
A Word from the Wise to the panicky Holocaustonians: Beware of trying to kill a mosquito with a cannon!
Below is an announcement that came from the Institute for Historical Review, along with a statement from the main sponsoring Swiss group V�rit� et Justice, followed by a concluding statement of the IHR's public relations director, Mark Weber: [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Regrettably, the Beirut "Revisionism and Zionism" conference has been canceled.
Here are announcements on this, with further details, that we have just posted on the "Beirut 2001" section of the IHR web site, and are sending by e-mail to our friends and supporters. [ www.ihr.org ]
BEIRUT "REVISIONISM AND ZIONISM" CONFERENCE CALLED OFF
March 23, 2001
The "Revisionism and Zionism" conference, which was to take place in Beirut from March 31 through April 3, is canceled. The conference organizer, the Swiss group V�rit� et Justice, called it off following the announcement by the Lebanese Prime Minster yesterday that it would not permit the four-day meeting to take place.
A Verit� et Justice statement on the cancellation, issued today, is posted on the "Beirut 2001" section of the IHR web site.
As newspapers have reported, the Lebanese government decision was made following demands by major Jewish organizations, and pressure from the United States and other foreign governments, to prohibit the peaceful, privately- organized conference.
Invited conference speakers should try to get a refund of the cost of their flight tickets. If that is not possible, V�rit� et Justice will reimburse them. Regrettably, though, V�rit� et Justice cannot refund the costs of tickets for attendees or journalists.
Mark Weber, Director of the Institute for Historical Review, says:
The Lebanese government ban of the "Revisionism and Zionism" conference is an outrageous assault against freedom of speech and expression. The people of Lebanon should be ashamed of their government for restricting their freedom, obviously in response to foreign pressure, in forbidding a peaceful, privately-organized meeting that would be entirely legal in most countries, including the United States. People everywhere should have the right to investigate and make up their own minds about 20th century history, including "the Holocaust," free of censorship and intimidation. Lebanese are entitled to the same standard of freedom of speech and expression as people in other countries.
This Lebanese government ban underscores the need for precisely such a conference. It shows, once again, how greatly Zionist groups fear open debate about "the Holocaust," which is a major weapon in the Israeli-Zionist arsenal. This ban points up the fragile and mendacious character of what even a few courageous Jewish scholars are aptly calling the "Holocaust cult" and the "Holocaust industry." <<

V�rit� et Justice Statement on the Lebanese Government Ban of the 'Revisionism and Zionism' Conference
For decades, revisionist researchers have diligently and tirelessly endeavored to separate historical facts from legends and downright lies. Their work has never been easy, because from the very beginning, they have been subject to all kind of harassment and persecution.
In particular, they have refuted the popular version of the Jewish fate during the Second World War. With their historical and technical arguments, they have proved beyond doubt that the "Holocaust." that is, the purported systematic extermination of six million Jews, most of them supposedly killed in gas chambers, is not only a historical lie, but also an instrument of political and financial blackmail. For an offense that was never committed, not only Germany, but other European countries as well have been denigrated and humiliated ever since 1945.
In the last years, anti-revisionist repression has become ever more ferocious. Numerous revisionists have been sentenced to prison terms and stiff fines; others have had their professional careers shattered, been subject to social ostracism or driven into exile because of their fight for truth in history.
Despite all these hardships, the revisionists have every reason to be proud of their achievements. An ever-growing part of the population all over the Western world is becoming familiar with the results of their scholarly work. Recently, there has been an increased interest in Holocaust revisionism in the Muslim world. More and more people now understand that the Holocaust story is nothing but a gigantic fraud.
As our friends and sympathizers know, V�rit� et Justice, in cooperation with the Institute for Historical Review, has planned to hold a conference on Revisionism and Zionism which was to be attended by almost thirty scholars from western Europe, the United States, Australia, Russia, and the Arab world, plus several religious and political leaders, writers, and journalists. At this conference, a broad variety of topics were to be discussed. The conference would have been the first of its kind to take place in a country belonging to the Arab and Islamic world, which has been the victim of incessant Zionist aggression in the last 50 years. It would have highlighted, once more, the solid scholarly basis of Holocaust revisionism.
Unfortunately, the Lebanese government, influenced by certain figures, has prevented the conference from taking place. For the time being we do not wish to disclose details.
For us revisionists, who have taken all kind of risks to expose Zionist lies, it is totally unacceptable that the Lebanese people, who have been fighting Zionist aggression for decades, are being deprived of their freedom to attend a conference that would have exposed Zionist distortions of history.
We urge all freedom-loving and patriotic Lebanese to think about the factors that have induced their government to grossly violate the most elementary rights of its citizens.
We solemnly declare that we will not compromise with the liars and oppressors. The conference on Revisionism and Zionism will definitely take place. It will be held in a country that will not yield to threats and blackmail.
V�rit� et Justice sincerely thanks its numerous friends and supporters, and entreats them to continue to stand with us at this difficult stage of our struggle.

Thought for the Day - (representative of many similar ones received at the Zundelsite)
"The cancellation of the conference will indeed reverberate throughout the Middle East. One thing I've learned about that area: the so called "Arab Street", the viewpoint of the man in the street as distinguished from his rulers, is an increasingly important factor and one feared by ruling elites in all those countries. It is more hostile to the Zionists than the leaders who often want to protect their own cushy priviliges and it will be heard. The people are not the dumb creatures of the propaganda message."
