Canadian professor accused of holocaust denial blames Jewish families for ‘Islamophobia industry’
Alberta – A Canadian professor under investigation over allegations of Holocaust denial has been condemned for “peddling fresh antisemitic conspiracy theories” by a prominent Jewish human rights group.
In a June 15 episode of his online show False Flag Weekly News, Anthony Hall of the University of Lethbridge in Alberta accused “philanthropic families of Jewish background” of funding “the Islamophobia industry.” He then claimed that “false-flag terrorism is a possible related subject.”
Hall’s comments were brought to light by B’nai Brith Canada, which in 2016 also helped expose his controversial views on Mideast affairs, the 9/11 attacks, and the Holocaust, including his call for “open debate” on the genocide in video testimony for a group founded by Holocaust denier Bradley Smith.
“It is disappointing, though frankly not surprising, to see Anthony Hall fall back on his antisemitic conspiracy theories as he faces professional difficulties,” said B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn. “Hall continues to demonstrate why he is unfit to teach students at the University of Lethbridge, or at any other self-respecting academic institution.”
