I have summarised the full background to the Tehran Holocaust Conference in an article which was first published on the Islamic website Mathaba.Net. I am most grateful to Sahib Mustaqim Bleher who edited the article and published it promptly. The original, unedited version (in PORTABLE DOCUMENT FORMAT) is included here for the sake of posterity.

What follows is more than an introduction to the Conference; it is my personal diary, background and commentary on this iconic event.

I first heard about the Conference from a fellow Revisionist who is active in the publishing field although not an historian in his own right. It was he who suggested that I submit an original paper, and it was he who gave me the details of how to do so.

In recent years my publishing activities have been severely curtailed; my golden period was from 1992 until about 2002 when I churned out pamphlets galore, a few books, and set up my various websites.

The reasons for my reduced and at times stagnant output are largely medical and psychological; I have not had a day entirely free from pain since October 1988, and in the last few years my condition has grown steadily worse. Then there was September 11, 2001. Although I was far removed from these terrible atrocities, they affected me as profoundly as any other British citizen. Prior to September 11, I had considered my researches into the Holocaust, and my at times iconoclastic publishing activities on such varied subjects as the Talmud and the Searchlight Organisation to be of considerable importance. Searchlight in particular had been engaged in a decadesí long disinformation campaign which had permeated the British media at all levels and to some extent the international media, but somehow in the light of the collapse of the Twin Towers, Gerry Gable, evil, hate-filled little Jew that he is, didnít seem half as significant.

My presence in Tehran was touch and go right up until the last minute; my passport had expired in February 2006, and I had problems obtaining a visa. My Iran Air ticket could have arrived earlier, but in the event, come the day of departure, I made my way slowly but surely to Heathrow.
