David Duke Visits Syria to support Syrian Government and Attack Jews and Israel

According to a Special Dispatch [November 29, 2005, No. 1035] issued by Memri, the organization which translates materials from the Arab and Moslem Middle East which relate to Israel, David Duke, the former KKK leader and an overt Holocaust denier, recently visited Syria to express his support for Bashar al-Assad.

During his visit, Duke, who is also a former U.S. State Representative from Louisiana, spoke at a rally in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, appeared at a Damascus press conference, met with Syrian Grand Mufti Ahmed Hassoun, and gave an interview to speech Duke charged that the U.S. and Syria were both occupied by the Zionists and that the Zionists also occupied "Washington D.C., and New York, and London, and many other capitals.

He charged that "Israel makes the Nazi state look very moderate in terms of its views" and declared that "all over the world you see the same pattern of control over the media, the same pattern of influence."

When David Irving visited the US in the 1990s, he spent time with Duke, playing tennis and editing Duke's book, My Awakening, which can only be described as an antisemitic and racist tirade.

During the course of discovery on my trial, we learned from Irving's diaries, that the two men exchanged fund raising lists. Apparently they assumed a person who would support one would want to support the other.

Birds of a feather..........

I wonder if the Syrians know that David Duke did 15 months in the federal diaper pail for defrauding his supporters for decades?

He sent out appeals for money to fight his enemies, and when the checks and cash rolled in, he pocketed the funds...until the limo from the New Orleans riverboat casinos arrived in the evening to take him down to the boat.

Duke was a "whale," a high roller at the casinos, where he studied the laws of probability, with the usual results. He made enormous bets, so the casinos comped him.

This all sounds jolly, but not to the IRS, who prosecuted him for using funds donated to a non-profit for personal use, which is tax fraud and embezzlement. Duke did 15 months in a plea agreement.

Duke's other claim to fame is being the only presidential candidate known to have authored a sex manual. Apparently his fellow fascists are quite annoyed at his habit of hitting on any women he meets.

Hypocrisy is the watchword for Holocaust deniers and neo-Nazis.
