Willis Carto & The Institute for Historical Review

The Institute for Historical Review held its major event of the year at an unnamed restaurant meeting room in Arlington Virginia on July 8. IHR director Mark Weber, and Paul Fromm, director of the extremist Canadian Association for Free Expression, were the featured speakers. Weber spoke about “the Jewish Zionist role in determining American foreign policy,” and praised the recent study about the “Israel Lobby” by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer; Fromm focused on the imprisonment of Holcaust-deniers David Irving in Austria and Ernst Zundel in Germany. According to the IHR, “30 or so” people attended and gave Weber “a standing ovation” after his remarks.
