A British Muslim leader admitted helping fund Holocaust denier David Irving. Asghar Bukhari, a founding member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, was revealed by a British newspaper Sunday to have pledged money to Irving’s legal fund in 2000. He also said in a letter at the time that he would encourage Islamic groups to support Irving and his efforts to “expose certain falsehoods perpetrated by the Jews.”
