    A 2005 article in The Jewish Tribune criticized GlobalResearch.ca as "rife with anti-Jewish conspiracy theory and Holocaust denial." B'nai Brith Canada had complained that there were comments on a forum that questioned how many Jews died in the Holocaust. Website editor Michel Chossudovsky responded that there was a disclaimer that the website was not to be held responsible for the views expressed in the forum, and he had the comment removed. He also said that he was of Jewish heritage and would be one of the last people to condone antisemitic views.
    CRG was described in 2011 as having "an intimate and wildly successful relationship" with the RT network (previously known as "Russia Today"). Contributors to CRG include Thierry Meyssan.

    So, by the owner's own statement, Global Research is an aggregator site. They don't embrace the views of anyone who publishes there. In this case, the author of the article Pale Jenova points to is Chris Macavel.

    Who is Chris Macavel?

    Chris Macavel is an independent political analyst based in Harlem, NY. He writes for the blog “The Nation-State” at thenationalstate.wordpress.com. He seeks to enlighten about the growing dangers of NATO imperialist ambitions and Wall Street domination in American political life. He is the author of the forthcoming book “Imperialism in the “Arab Spring: How Western Imperialists Guided the MENA Uprisings”.
    His blog:

    The problem with his blog is that it has only post, the one one Pale Jenova linked to, and it was created at the end of February, right when the revolution occurred in Ukraine.

    Macavel has no other footprint of consequence on the Web.
