A few examples will suffice: Irving has made claims that the Jews deserve to be disliked; that they brought the Holocaust on themselves; that Jewish financiers are crooked; that Jews generate anti-semitism by their greed and mendacity; that it is bad luck for Mr. Wiesel to be called "Weasel"; that Jews are amongst the scum of humanity; that Jews scurry and hide furtively, unable to stand the light of day; that Simon Wiesenthal has a hideous, leering evil face; and so on... The inference which in my judgment is clearly to be drawn from what Irving has said and written is that he is anti-semitic." (Matas, David. Bloody Speech. Winnipeg & Niagara Falls, 2000, p. 64) <1> Judgment of April 11, 2000, paragraphs 13.101-105.
