Parisian Songs of War – Giuseppe Fallisi and Alison Chabloz
Yesterday, I finally received the full video footage of Italian tenor Giuseppe Fallisi and I performing together in Vichy last year in honour of Professor Robert Faurisson’s 88th birthday. Although the acoustics are far from perfect, it was a pleasure to listen again after all this time. Entitled in Italian Parisian Songs of War Mr Fallisi’s own musical compositions take the words of Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Verlaine – poets studied and taught by the professor. Indeed, the professor first became known to the French public at large because of his work on the poetry of Rimbaud.
Like yours truly, Mr Fallisi is capable of both composition and performance. I hope you enjoy watching and listening. From 34:45 in, my little speech in French translates as:
In a moment, you’re all going to sing. But here and now, I bring birthday wishes for the professor from Mr Gerard Menuhin. It’s his lyrics that you’re going to hear; he is the one who inspired me to write my Songs of the Shoah – which have since caused me a few problems. The title is Tell Me More Lies – and it’s the least controversial of all my songs. It’s the only one that Lady Renouf said I had the right to play today – the others, no way!
It is unlikely in my view that Dr Fredrick Töben or I shall be receiving an apology any time soon. As far as my own strategy goes, I’m simply happy that the video has finally been published. Who knows, perhaps this time next week I will be sleeping in a cell? But at least I will be able to sleep soundly in the knowledge that I have absolutely No Regrets!
Trial by Wikipedia
Published last November, this post explains how I dealt with several mentions of my name on Wikipedia. These mentions, principally on the dedicated Campaign Against Antisemitism page were removed as a gross violation of BLP (Wikipedia rules on Biographies of Living Persons). Just days before the verdict in my court case is due to be pronounced, two more mentions have appeared, again on the CAA page as well as on that dedicated to Adrian Davies, my barrister. I submitted edit requests which so far have resulted in my name being removed from the CAA page but not from Mr Davies’. There is a veritable inquisition going on in the relative talk pages which I won’t bore you with here. In brief, certain Wikipedia editors are positioning themselves as the ultimate adjudicators regards my case, irrespective of facts, English law and the judge’s pending decision. These mentions are clearly another violation of BLP guidelines, but the ‘argument’ emanating from the talk pages is that whereas I am not well-known enough to have my own dedicated Wikipedia page, it’s ok to breach BLP guidelines as far as yours truly is concerned because I would be an evil-minded ‘anti-Semite’. Trial by media is a joyride compared to Trial by Wikipedia, but at least as far as the latter is concerned, it’s easy to respond immediately. Clearly, the editors concerned aren’t having much fun. Requests to block and/or verify that I am actually me abound. Frankly, it’s comical.
In other related news, yesterday I finally sent two PDF documents to Sergeant Jon Lloyd of Derbyshire Constabulary. For the layout, I chose a ‘photo-story’ approach with columns of annotated screenshots, in some cases going back to 2015. The first document contains evidence of the smear campaign against me (which Derbyshire police dismissed, preferring instead to arrest and incarcerate me for singing satirical songs at the behest of those doing the smearing), as well as evidence of CAA’s staged trolling tactics, clearly intended to bring about my prosecution. The second contains five further sections with accompanying annotated screenshots: Bedlam and Nemo; CAA-related gang stalking; Gratuitous targeting and outright threats; Ambrosine Shitrit, Jonathan Hoffman and associates; Trial by media and ongoing Twitter abuse. Signed hard copies will be delivered following next Friday’s verdict; the electronic versions should keep Sergeant Lloyd busy for a while.
