Where might vigilante action come from?
Robert Faurisson, 60, suffered a broken jaw and ribs and severe head injuries in the attack by three youths while he was walking his dog in the town of Vichy.
In the UKAR discussion of the vandalizing of the Christie Street Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Toronto, the recommendation was made that police should allocate resources to monitoring and infiltrating groups which have demonstrated a predisposition to resort to vigilante action.  The report below provides information which might prove helpful in determining which groups should be so targetted.

Other documents on UKAR relevant to the possibility of vigilante action in Canada are my letters to Canada's Justice Minister, Anne McLellan, of 19-Dec-1997, 30-Dec-1997, 01-Apr-1998, and 02-Apr-1998.  An incident described by Robert Faurisson is that of victim Michel Caignet.

One may speculate that if the perpetrators of the Faurisson attack were apprehended and tried, then the result could conceivably have been to add insult to Faurisson's injury by their being acquitted on the grounds that the attack was justified though perhaps such a bizarre result is only conceivable in France when the victim of the Jewish attack is a Ukrainian, as exemplified in the acquittal of Shalom Schwartzbard for the assassination of Ukrainian leader Symon Petliura in Paris in 1926.  Shalom Schwartzbard's acquittal was based not on any denial that he was the assassin, but rather on the defense that Jews have the right to assassinate Ukrainians when those Ukrainians are acknowledged to have made attempts to stop anti-Jewish pogroms, but are suspected of not having done enough.


Questioned Holocaust, historian badly beaten

CLERMONT-FERRAND, France

A leading French revisionist historian who denies that millions of Jews were killed in the Holocaust was recovering from surgery yesterday after a savage beating.

Robert Faurisson, 60, suffered a broken jaw and ribs and severe head injuries in the attack by three youths while he was walking his dog in the town of Vichy.

A hospital spokesman in Clermont-Ferrand, the central French city where he was transferred for surgery, said Mr. Faurisson's condition was stable.

"He was conscious, but he couldn't speak," said a fire fighter who gave Mr. Faurisson first aid.  "His jaw was smashed.  They destroyed his face."

A previously unknown group, The Sons of the Memory of the Jews, took responsibility for the attack, saying those who deny the Holocaust should "beware."

Veteran Nazi-hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld said they were not surprised by the attack.  "Someone who has provoked the Jewish community for years should expect this sort of thing," Serge Klarsfeld said.
