A Polish organization began legal action this week to convict British Holocaust denier David Irving for  “minimizing” the scale of Nazi atrocities, as the revisionist historian begins his controversial tours of the Nazi death camps in the country. The Open Republic Association Against Anti-Semitism and Xenophobia lodged a complaint with the Institute of National Remembrance- Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation (IPN) on Wednesday claiming Irving seeks to “minimize” the scale of Nazi crimes as well as deny the extermination program in his book Hitler’s War, which was recently published in Polish. The legal action comes as Irving, who was jailed in Austria in 2006 for Holocaust denial, embarks on a weeklong tour to concentration camps and the former site of the Warsaw Ghetto. “Let’s not wait for the moment when David Irving commits a new crime in Poland; the evidence indicates clearly that he has already committed this crime,” Open Republic said in its complaint to IPN, which prosecutes both Nazi and Communist era crimes against the Polish people. The group was set up in 1999 in response to the manifestations of xenophobic tendencies in Polish public life and the revival of anti-Semitism and racism, its remit states. Dariusz Gabrel, from Open Republic, described Irving as one of the “foremost Holocaust deniers” and called for his prosecution under Polish laws that prohibit the denial of Nazi crimes.

“Material evidence clearly shows that he has broken the law,” he said. “Poland, the country in which the Nazis committed their crimes against humanity, should be especially sensitive to Irving’s kind of crime.” Irving arrived in Poland on Tuesday to lead his much criticized tour of Nazi sites, which is expected to attract a number of far-right sympathizers from across Europe who will pay $2,650 each. Advertising material for the tour promises an experience far removed from the “tourist attractions of Auschwitz.” However, the museum at Auschwitz has banned Irving from giving a guided tour there. A spokesman for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum said Irving can visit as an individual but that he would be “closely monitored.” Last week, the convicted Holocaust denier claimed that Treblinka was a real death camp site, as opposed to Auschwitz, which he described as a “Disney- style tourist attraction.” Speaking to the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday he said, “I am baffled by the reaction I’ve had in Poland because they should be very grateful that I am here. “Here I am lecturing to the revisionists and setting the record straight. I am saying to them – those who believe that not a hair was harmed on the head of the Jewish community – that you couldn’t be more wrong.” He described people who branded him a Holocaust denier as “criminal, lying lunatics.” In 1996, Irving attempted to sue American historian Prof. Deborah Lipstadt for libel, after she called him a Holocaust denier in her book Denying the Holocaust. Three courts subsequently found in favor of Lipstadt concluding that Irving was a Holocaust denier, an anti- Semite and a racist.

Vote to ban EDL march in Leicester 'unanimous'

Councillors in Leicester have voted unanimously to ban a planned English Defence League (EDL) rally in the city.

The right-wing group said about 3,000 members would march on 9 October.

But Leicestershire Police said the plans posed a "major threat to public order", with intelligence suggesting a mosque would be attacked.

The EDL said it had no plans to target a mosque and the public "should not be worried". The Home Office will now decide whether to enforce a ban.

Concerns about the impact of the march, and a counter-demonstration by Unite Against Fascism (UAF), were outlined in a letter by Simon Cole, chief constable of Leicestershire Police.

Mr Cole said he believed the rally would attract about 5,000 people from the two organisations.

In August, Home Secretary Theresa May imposed a ban on a planned EDL march in Bradford.

However, the group was allowed to hold a static rally, during which a number of skirmishes broke out between members of the group and rival protesters from UAF.

On its website, EDL said: "We have organised a series of peaceful protests across the country. Unfortunately, some of these have been disrupted... we wish to avoid clashes and putting officers, our members and the public at risk."

The Home Secretary is expected to decide whether to ban Leicester's rally next week.

Malaysia rapper's anti-racism rant causes storm

An ethnic Chinese rapper who enraged authorities with a profanity-strewn anti-racism rant on YouTube says  he was only trying to speak out against discrimination in multiracial Malaysia.

Wee Meng Chee, 27, better known as Namewee to his fans, was hauled in for a police grilling last month over the clip which saw him accused of stirring up ethnic tensions -- a taboo in a country where race is a sensitive issue.

In the three-minute rap titled "Nah", Wee used obscene language to bitterly criticise a Muslim Malay headmistress who is accused of making racial slurs against her ethnic Chinese and Indian students.

"My purpose is to stand up against racism," insisted the flamboyant rapper, who sports a beanie hat and baggy shorts, and who has developed a cult following among young Malaysians who have a growing political awareness.

His official Facebook page has more than 340,000 followers, and his songs have had more than 600,000 hits on YouTube.

"Regardless of what I did was right or wrong, whether you like it or not, I am just giving you an extra choice -- you can choose not to watch it," Wee said.

The rapper, who began writing songs at 15 and graduated with a mass communications degree from a Taiwanese university, first made national headlines in 2007 over another YouTube clip mocking the national anthem.

Authorities condemned the performance as seditious, and pulled him in for what would be the first of three police interrogations during his short career.

The parody touched on abuse of power, corruption, government bureaucracy and controversial positive discrimination policies designed to advance Muslim Malays who dominate the population.

Wee apologised for that incident, and escaped charges.

But last year he ran into more trouble over a song in which he criticised the national power firm over frequent power outages in his hometown in the southern state of Johor.

His latest clip "Nah", which authorities also said was seditious, prompted criticism including from the prime minister who warned of tough action against those who try to provoke racial tensions.

Elements in the ruling party, the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), called for his citizenship to be revoked and for the rapper to be held under internal security laws that allow for detention without trial.

"He cannot be let off the hook again," Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin, the chief of UMNO's young women's wing who first made the complaint over the "Nah" video, reportedly said at the time.

"We regret that whenever the Malays talk about their rights, they are described as racist but at the same time the non-Malays are free to say anything," she said, calling for a tough response to act as a deterrent to others.

Wee, who would face up to three years in jail if the authorities pursue sedition charges, insists he has done nothing wrong.

"We should be able to speak up and not keep quiet when we have to deal with injustice," he said.

The headmistress he targeted in the video clip was accused of telling her ethnic Chinese students to return to China and compared Hindu prayer strings to dog leashes -- allegations that unleashed a furore.

The government has ordered a probe into the case but no action has been taken against her yet, angering Malaysia's minorities, who complain their rights are being eroded as the country becomes increasingly "Islamised".

Despite the popularity of his cause, Wee has received mixed reviews from commentators who object to the abusive language and boastful comments alluding to the ethnic Chinese community's economic success.

But he has also received applause for daring to tackle head-on an issue that many in Malaysia -- which suffered deadly racial riots in the 1960s -- are too nervous to broach.

 "Malaysia should be a country that treats everyone fairly, regardless of their different background," said Wee, who is working on a film about national unity.

"Don't be afraid, because we are paying the government to work for us. Put it in simple terms, we are their boss, they are our servants."
