Inayat Bunglawala writes in support of MPACUK's Asghar Bukhari who, nobody disputes, gave small amounts of money to David Irving:
This story has mysteriously surfaced at this time in a clear attempt to try and discredit Asghar Bukhari and MPACUK.It's a conspiracy. The important thing is not the information, but the fact that it has been reported now. You know, now, when... when something's probably happening that this is meant to deflect attention from. Something... I'm not sure what. But it's a conspiracy!
Asghar's donation of sixty pounds to David Irving over six years ago may be regarded as perhaps overly idealistic and indeed naive.Mr Bunglawala regards support of David Irving to be idealistic. This word is rarely used of ideals with which one disagrees. Expressing such support in a way that might become public is naive, of course. Be more careful next time. Don't get caught.
However, it is disgraceful - though not unexpected, of course - that the usual suspects have tried to use this incident in an attempt to portray Asghar as an anti-semite.It's a conspiracy! They've got it in for us! Fancy trying to suggest a man is anti semitic just because he gives consistent financial support to the country's most famous anti-semitic campaigner!
I know that Asghar is a staunch critic - and rightly so - of Zionism and the bloody and repressive policies of the Israeli government, but also that he has absolutely no truck whatsoever with anti-semitism or any other form of racial prejudice.David Irving anti-racist lullaby:
I am a Baby Aryan
Not Jewish or Sectarian;
I have no plans to marry
an Ape or Rastafarian
I hope MPAC will not be deterred by this episode and continue to focus on encouraging British Muslims to play their full role in the mainstream of British society and not allow themselves to be marginalised through inaction and passivity.'We are victims and it's a conspiracy!
