Dr Fredrick Toben has been prevented using the courts as an outlet for his views on Jews and the Holocaust.

The Australian reported that Dr Toben had sued its former editor Clive Mathieson, senior reporter Christian Kerr and Christine Milne who had been the leader of the Greens when the paper carried a headline stating “Split in Greens over Holocaust denier”.

The paper reported: “Dr Toben had claimed the ­article defamed him by alleging he was a Holocaust denier and an anti-Semite. The Court of Appeal yesterday rejected his challenge to a permanent stay that had been imposed on his legal action in the Supreme Court.”

It further published that “The Court of Appeal further found that many people would conclude that Toben’s writings are “openly antisemitic” and that “his reputation could not be sullied beyond that which he has himself achieved by those writings. “

The Executive Council of Australian Jewry president Robert Goot and executive director Peter Wertheim: “The decision by the Court of Appeal affirmed the findings of the primary judge that Toben was engaged in a “cynical misuse of the process of the court” aimed at using the court to “assert the very views … with which he claims to have been defamed.”.

Toben has for many years sought to use the field of history, the legal system and his own “Institute” to give the appearance of legitimacy to his work. No one is fooled. This decision once again affirms that as far as the Holocaust is concerned, the only work in which Toben is engaged is the peddling of lies and hatred.”

    Toben must be delighted with Turnbull’s announcement of a parliamentary enquiry into section 18c, as it brings him closer to being allowed to offend and insult Jews with his anti-Semitic agenda. Pity there are Jews on the right who support Toben’s right to insult and offend Holocaust survivors by him calling them liars.
