On January 22, 1992, revisionist activist David Cole was attacked by JDL thugs at a meeting held at the University of California at Los Angeles. Before the meeting began, JDL leader Rubin first tried to push the youthful Cole down a flight of stairs. JDL hoodlums also harassed and pushed around meeting organizer Robert Morrissey. After the meeting commenced, JDL punks tried to shout down the speakers, and then threw food at Cole. Finally, a JDL thug assaulted Cole -- who is Jewish -- hitting him in the face and bloodying his nose.
The tumult was recorded on videotape by a camera crew of the CBS television news program "48 Hours," as well as by news crews of two local Los Angeles television stations. Neither of the two local stations mentioned a word of the incident in their nightly news broadcasts. Similarly, CBS officials decided not to air even a second of this outburst, not even in a segment about Holocaust revisionism that was part of the CBS television network's hour-long magazine-format program "48 Hours" broadcast of February 26, 1992. Network officials apparently decided that scenes of Zionist hoodlums beating a young Jewish revisionist would not "fit" with the image of revisionism that CBS wanted to project to its many viewers.

The most notorious of these murders was the assassination of an American
civil servant named Tom Soobzokov in Paterson N.J. in August of 1985. Because
Soobzokov had recently won a huge award in his $50 million lawsuit against
New York Times Books and a Zionist propagandist named Howard Blum, he had
been marked for death by the terrorists. Blum had written an exercise in
fantasy, "Wanted: The Search for Nazis in America", which devoted some 50 pages
to Soobzokov's alleged career as a Nazi, despite the fact that Blum's sources
had exonerated Soobzokov of all charges. The World Jewish Congress published a
letter from its director that Soobzokov's name had never appeared on a list of
war criminals; the Berlin Document Center, the world's most extensive
collection of papers on Nazis, had nothing adverse in its files; and 67 other
organizations which devoted their efforts to pursuing alleged war criminals
admitted that Soobzokov had never been listed as a war criminal. The Office of
Special Investigations, the Nesher group, had tried to have him deported but
gave up the effort when all of the charges were disproved.
After winning an award of millions of dollars, Soobzokov was denounced at a neighboring synagogue by Mordechai Levy, founder of the terrorist Jewish Defense League. In the next few days, a number of attempts were made on Soobzokov's life, culminating in a bombing which tore off his legs and caused his death 22 days later. The FBI and the police did nothing on the case, marking it "Unsolved" and placing it in the dead file. Victims By Eustace Mullins
Since its founding in 1978, the Institute for Historical Review has been the
leading American publisher of books and other materials questioning the
Holocaust extermination story. For this reason, its office in southern
California, as well as individual IHR employees, soon became targets of a
systematic campaign that included a drive-by shooting, three firebombings,
vandalization of IHR employee-owned automobiles, slashings of 22 tires of
employee automobiles, JDL-organized demonstrations outside the IHR office, and
numerous telephone threats during office hours and at night to IHR employees at
home. So intense did the harassment become that the family of one IHR employee
was forced to move.
During the course of a JDL demonstration in front of the IHR office on March 19, 1981, Mordechai Levy and other JDL protesters attacked the car of the landlord's agent, who had arrived to ensure security. While shouting threats, Levy smashed the right front passenger window of the man's car as he drove off.
A few weeks later, on April 5, 1981, JDL hoodlums staged another violent demonstration outside the IHR office, during which an IHR employee was thrown to the ground and beaten.
In the early morning hours of June 25, 1981, came the first firebombing attack against the IHR office. Fortunately, the arson device -- similar to a "Molotov cocktail" -- caused only minor damage. A man claiming to represent the "Jewish Defenders" announced responsibility for the attack in phone calls to news agencies.
The second arson attack against the IHR office came on April 25, 1982, in which a copy machine, a few pieces of furniture and some records were damaged. In a telephone message to a local news agency, a group calling itself "the Jewish Defenders" claimed responsibility.
In an attack on September 5, 1982, the IHR office was riddled with gunfire, demolishing two windows and damaging the front door. Additionally, a small arson device caused some slight damage to the front of the office. Later that day, as throughout the week, came a barrage of murder-threatening telephone calls. Although the caller's voice was identified as that of Mordechai Levy, typically, no one was arrested in the case.

This terror campaign culminated in a devastating arson attack on the
Institute's offices and warehouse in Torrance on July 4, 1984 -- the 209th
anniversary of American independence. Damage in the attack, carried out in the
early morning hours of the 4th, was estimated at $400,000.
In a special edition of the IHR Newsletter (August 1984), IHR Director J. Marcellus summed up:
As a physical entity, the Institute for Historical Review has virtually ceased to exist. Ninety percent of our book and tape inventory -- the largest collection of revisionist historical literature to be found anywhere -- has been wiped out. Every last piece of office equipment and machinery -- including desks, chairs, files and shelves -- lay in charred heaps of useless, twisted scrap. Manuscripts, documents, artwork, galleys and film negatives -- products of more than six long years of a tough, dedicated effort to bring suppressed historical data to people the world over -- no longer exist. Tens of thousands of books...estimated at over $300,000 in value, are gone...More than 2,500 square feet of space that was once the world's most controversial publisher lies blackened in chaos and total ruin.
Two days later, JDL leader Irv Rubin showed up at the site of the gutted IHR offices to publicly praise the arson attack. The JDL, he declared, "wholeheartedly applauds the recent devastation of the offices of the Institute for Historical Review." Denying any personal responsibility himself, Rubin said that the criminal attack had been carried out by a former JDL activist named Larry Winston (Joel Cohen). "I believe, with all my heart, that he [Winston/Cohen] had something to do with this" arson, Rubin declared.
Although no one was ever arrested in connection with the 1984 firebombing, the sophisticated nature of the attack suggests that it could have been the work of trained operatives of a foreign governmental agency.
Apart from local news coverage, American newspapers and television reported almost nothing about this act of criminal "book burning." This skewed media treatment moved noted journalist Alexander Cockburn to observe (in the pages of the liberal weekly The Nation): "The outfit in the United States that does publish material belittling generally accepted accounts of the Nazi extermination of the Jews is called the Institute for Historical Review. I don't recall much fuss when its offices in Torrance, California, were firebombed in July 1984. Perhaps this is what Mailer meant by "sophistication" in handling such heterodox opinion."
At the same time, though, a few prominent voices courageously spoke out against the attack. American historian John Toland -- who received the Pulitzer prize for general non-fiction in 1971 for his book The Rising Sun -- wrote to the IHR: "When I learned of the torching of the office-warehouse of the Institute for Historical Review, I was shocked. And when I heard no condemnation of this act of terrorism on television and read no protests in the editorial pages of our leading newspapers or from the halls of Academe, I was dismayed and incensed...I call on all true believers in democracy to join me in public denunciation of the recent burning of books in Torrance, California."
British historian David Irving, author of numerous acclaimed, best-selling works of history, declared: "I was deeply shocked to hear of the fire-bomb attack on your premises."  The Zionist Terror Network Background and Operation of the Jewish Defense League and other Criminal Zionist Groups
In mid-February 1989, Jewish Defense League intimidation brought on the
cancellation of a three-day Institute for Historical Review conference at two
hotel sites in southern California.
Arrangements had been made months in advance to hold the Ninth IHR Conference at the Red Lion Inn hotel in Costa Mesa. Several days before it was to begin, the hotel received the first of a barrage of telephone threats warning that if it permitted the IHR gathering to take place as scheduled, there would be large, disruptive demonstrations in front of the hotel. It didn't take many such threats to persuade general manager Russell Cox to cave in to the Zionist group, and to cancel the hotel's contract with the IHR. Cox then added insult to injury by permitting JDL chief Rubin to hold a "news conference" in the hotel lobby.

Arrangements were then hastily made to relocate the IHR gathering to a nearby
Holiday Inn hotel. However, just hours before it was to commence -- and as
attendees were arriving -- the Holiday Inn likewise cancelled out, bowing to JDL
threats similar to those made against the Red Lion Inn.
At this point, and with help from former US Congressman John Schmitz, IHR Director J. Marcellus made emergency arrangements with Joe Bischof, proprietor of the "Old World Village" shopping center in Huntington Beach, to hold the IHR Conference there. Bischof refused to bow to JDL intimidation, including a demonstration at the site by a handful of sorry-looking placard-waving JDLers led by Rubin, who shouted insults at passersby. In spite of the disruption, and some inconvenience for attendees, the Ninth IHR Conference proved one of the most successful and high-spirited ever.
