Mr. Irving, you wrote:

Your failure to file a libel suit against a man who found that you had
offered testimony that was, quote, "a total fabrication," given your
penchant for threatening such actions, and the threat you have levied
against me, seems more than a little revealing, I think.

Thank you for conceding that you have not brought libel suits against
either Mr. Thompson, nor the Australian Federal Court jurists who
found that you had lied under oath. 

I think that's about as clear as it needs to be, Mr. Irving.

Your failure to file a libel suit against the British jurist is noted,
Mr. Irving. It is clear that such a suit _would_ "test" your sworn
testimony, and that you have not wished to test it. 

Telling.

I will be in London on the 8th of May, Mr. Irving. 

I will at that time read the findings of both Adudicator Thompson and
the Australian Federal Court justices and repeat them to representatives 
of the press, should they be remotely interested. Further, I will make
printed copies of both Australian judgments and Adjudicator Thompson's
finding available to anyone who wishes to have them. 

Given your dedication to freedom of speech, I am certain that you will 
support this gesture with dignity.

Speaking of lying allegations, Mr. Irving, this will serve as a
second warning that a web page hosted by Focal Point Publications, 81
Duke Street, Grosvenor Square, London W1M5DJ, Uniform Resource Locator
http://www.fpp.co.uk/IrvingIndex.html, contains a demonstrable lie
about Nizkor's funding. As I understand it, I do not have to
demonstrate malice in a U.K. libel action, Mr. Irving, just that plaintiff
has lied, as Focul Point Publications has with the allegation that
Nizkor is "substantially funded by the New York based Anti-Defamation 
League (ADL)." 

Be advised that I will be meeting with solicitors during my visit to
London to discuss this, and be advised in regard to this particular 
lie, and its relationship to British civil law. 

At least this time you aren't lying under oath, Mr. Irving, you're 
just lying.

Kenneth McVay
