I agree that these guys are not particularly worrisome; they're clearly
so nutty that even the extremist racist fuckwits will throw up their
hands and say, "Those Metapedia guys are insane". I can't see the site
gaining much support, or influence.
However, when it comes to Burj Dubai, I think they may have been hit by
a hoaxer (as in, someone out to damage their reputation from within with
satirical articles). The same author is responsible for this:
"Excuse me, are you speaking Jewish?" inquired a curious Irving.
"Because if you read my latest article for the Daily Mail, you'd
know that the Jewish language was created by a panel including
Communists, Labour party officials, and Irishmen."
There are people crazy enough to write a passage like that without
intending to lampoon racism and Holocaust denialism, but I suspect this
chap isn't one of them.
"'Yes, sir,' said Jeeves in a low, cold voice, as if he had been bitten
in the leg by a personal friend."
