Under Zionist Pressure

Valentin Prussakov

The conference of revisionist historians will not take place in Beirut. For several months the association of independent Swiss historians "Truth and Justice," headed by researcher Jürgen Graf who is well known in our country, together with the California-based Institute for Historical Review (director, Mark Weber) carried out intensive work in preparing the scientific conference under the title "Revisionism and Zionism," which was supposed to take place in Beirut, Lebanon. More than 30 renowned researchers from West Europe, the United States, Australia, Russia, and the Arab world had agreed to participate in the conference. Several religious and political leaders, well known writers, and journalists, were also supposed to arrive. It was the first time a conference of this type had selected a site in a country in the Arab or Islamic world, which has been a victim of Zionist agression for more than 50 years.

However, literally at the very last moment the Lebanese government suddenly forbade the conference from taking place. Observers are of the opinion that the decision was taken as the result of heavy pressure from international Jewish organizations annoyed that the revisionists openly call the so-called Holocaust the Greatest Hoax of the 20th Century.
