Israel Shamir, a Jewish convert to Christianity who espouses medieval-style anti-Judaism but who defends himself by claiming he is merely an anti-Zionist, called my attention to an article in in the Spanish newspaper El Pais about Pedro Varela. Varela is a right-wing extremist in Spain who denies the Holocaust and venerates Hitler. He has been in prison since late 2010, when he was convicted of disseminating Holocaust denial.
In his introduction to the article, Shamir reveals that Varela is his Spanish-language publisher. He calls him a “wonderful man” and insists that all the charges against Varela are merely “political accusations.”
David Duke also calls Varela “a good friend,” and the two of them conducted a book tour in Spain in 1987 to promote Duke’s blatantly anti-Semitic book, Jewish Supremacism. Varela also facilitated a notorious speech by David Irving in Spain in 2007 (see Irving’s account of the speech here and here), and eventually became Irving’s Spanish-language publisher.
It is hardly necessary to adduce any more proof of Israel Shamir’s anti-Semitism, but his lauding of Pedro Varela and use of him as his publisher is just one more bit of damning evidence.
