BERN, Switzerland, July 13 (JTA) — A Swiss Holocaust denier took a job as a liaison between Islamic organizations and a European Neo-Nazi group, he has revealed to JTA. "A few years ago, my friends in the Iran regime motivated me to function as go-between with the international Revisionist Szene and the Islamic groups in Europe," Albert "Ahmed" Huber told JTA. Huber, a former journalist who converted to Islam and changed his first name from Albert to Ahmed, travels regularly to Germany to give lectures in the German extremist party NPD on Holocaust denial and the Islamic Jihad against Israel and the Jews. "I am very happy that the right-wing world in Europe more and more understands that the Holocaust was a big fraud and the European neo-Nazi should join Islamic organizations to fight Israel, the Jews and America," he told JTA. Huber, 76, was just recently put on U.N. and E.U. lists of individuals involved in terrorism, and whose assets should therefore be frozen. "I am not surprised that after the United States, the Europeans and the U.N. put me on this list because all these organizations are controlled by the American-Jewish-Israeli terrorists," Huber said. But Huber told JTA that he can access his bank accounts freely. A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Justice in Bern told JTA that Huber is still under criminal investigation. But Huber is optimistic he and Islamic organizations like Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah can operate unharmed in Switzerland.
