Stein) Newsgroups: alt.revisionism Subject: The clippings Al Baron sent me Date: 25 Nov 1995 19:38:56 -0500 Organization: Express Access Online Communications, Greenbelt, MD USA Lines: 148 Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> References: <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> NNTP-Posting-Host: access2.digex.net From the Jewish Chronicle, 10th Sept 1993 ANTI-ISRAEL PAMPHLET REFERRED TO LAW OFFICER by Julian Kossoff The Attorney-General is investigating the latest pamphlet produced by the fictitious organisation, Anglo-Hebrew Publishing. The pamphlet includes an appeal for donations to combat the "cancer of Zionism." The violently anti-Israel pamphlet, entitled "Charity begins at home," has been distributed to a small number of Jewish people in the London area. An accompanying letter appeals for sympathy for the Dowager Lady Birdwood, who was found guilty in 1991 of distributing anti-Jewish leaflets intended to stir up racial hatred. Mike Whine, defence director of the Board of Deputies, told the JC that the leaflet had been passed on to the Attorney-General. In May, Anglo-Hebrew Publishing distributed a hoax letter requesting donation to Jewish homes in London.
This is apparently the _Searchlight_ article over which Al Baron is suing: JEWISH COMMUNITY TARGETED Antisemitic attacks are being reported from several parts of the country. At the same time as attacks on Jewish cemeteries and property have increased, a wave of Holocaust denial and antisemitic hoax material has been circulating. It is now more than three years since the last major wave of antisemitic incidents in Britain, although they have continued unabated in other parts of Europe. _Searchlight's_ exposure of the involvement of British National Party activists and others in the Northwest helped to deter further attacks at that time. We named Michael Calton, a long-time hardline nazi activist, as one of the main perpetrators of attacks on dozens of Jewish properties around the country, including cemeteries, shops, homes and synagogues. Calton fled to France and the incidents tailed off. Recently, however, Jewish communities in Southampton, Manchester, Eastbourne and Brighton have been the victim of vandals targeting cemeteries, communal property and shops. The police in Brighton, where 60 Jewish graves were wrecked in September, cautioned a ten-year-old boy who they claimed had carried out the attack. People who inspected the damage were of the view that if he had been responsible, he must be some kind of mighty midget. The damage in Eastbourne would also have needed somebody older. _Searchlight_ is not trying to cause panic in the Jewish community. Despite the new factor of Combat 18's presence, we do not believe anything on the scale of three and four years ago is happening now. The present campaign should, however, be nipped in the bud. Calton is reported to have returned to Britain and the police should be investigating what he is up to. One area of serious concern is the failure of the police to stop the ongoing hoaxes against the Jewish community and others by Alex Baron. Baron, already on bail on other charges, is continuing to spend huge amounts of money circulating his trash and antisemitic forgeries around the country and yet the police claim they are still looking for the source of the material. In an abusive letter to _Searchlight_ Baron claims that although the police seized his computer and printing equipment and the courts have refused to return it, he has access to other printing facilities and is using them. A recent hoax story in the London _Evening Standard_ about a bus service for Orthodox Jews was Baron's latest bit of mischief making. Baron is working with Patrick Harrington's errand boy Larry O'Hara and Mark Taha, who has been linked to British Movement, Western Goals, Monday Club and the League of St. George. Together they are breaking criminal and civil laws with impunity and it is high time Baron was in custody to prevent him from continually reoffending. Meanwhile, the Dowager Jane Lady Birdwood has been summoned to appear at Bow Street Magistrates' Court this month on charges of possessing and distrubuting [sic] racially inflamatory material. Two years ago she received a conditional sentence at the Old Bailey after being found guilty on ten similar charges. The last piece Baron sent is undated: This leaflet is a response to an article in the March 95 issue of _Searchlight_, the self-styled anti-fascist magazine. On page 12 of this issue _Searchlight_ prints a photograph of Larry O'Hara, the anti- fascist researcher, and gives important clues as to where he works and where he lives, thereby setting him up for attack by fascists. Obviously this is not the work of what _Searchlight_ claims itself to be, an anti-fascist magazine. Larry O'Hara's anti-fascist credentials can be established by reading the articles he wrote analysing British fascism in recent years. (These appear in issues 23 to 26 of _Lobster_ magazine.) He has also written two pamphlets (_A Lie Too Far_ and _At War With The Truth_) and a book (_Turning Up The Heat_: MI5 After The Cold War_) and these too can be read by anyone interested in finding out what his political views are. (It is noteworthy that in this article _Searchlight_ has dropped its earlier smear that O'Hara is an "errand boy" of fascists. But note the new smear that the magazine _Green Anarchist_ is connected with fascists.) The reason that I can think of why _Searchlight_ would attack Larry O'Hara in this way is that his writings have embarrassed the secret state and that _Searchlight_, which is not an anti-fascist magazine but a mouthpiece of the secret state, is now fighting back on behalf of its paymasters. The article referred to is supposedly writen by Ray Hill but is thought to be written by Gerry Gable, the editor of _Searchlight_. The article contains two contradictory statements. The first is that "The anti-fascist and anarchist movements have started to turn up the heat on O'Hara." Have they? Several magazines from the milieus described have reviewed _Turning Up The Heat_ but, whilst critical, have been in favour of the book. The contradiction occurs three sentences later when Gable writes "Even disregarding what he (O'Hara) has said and written about _Searchlight_, is it not time that the anti-fascist movement took a good look at this character and worked out his motivation and just whom he is working with and for." Well, Gerry, is the anti-fascist movement taking a good look at Larry, or not? In fact they're taking a good look at you and your magazine. You suggest that the anti-fascist movement takes a look at who Larry O'Hara is working with. I fall into this category as I am the main person in Phoenix Press which published _Turning Up The Heat_. So let me help you. My name is Brian Moseley and I work at Housmans' Bookshop in Kings Cross. Here I am, Gerry, what are you going to do about it?
