* Contrary to expectations, Ernst Zundel's trial did not
conclude at the end of September as announced and expected. Four additional
hearing dates have scheduled - a brief 2-hour one today, and regular hearing
sessions, starting at 9:00 A.M., as follows:
- October 19
- October 20
- November 10
* There has been some progress in ferreting out who was
behind the Zundel political kidnapping in February 2003 that was preceded by
multiple investigations by the Tennessee FBI and local law enforcement
You will remember that these investigations - seven in all
- yielded absolutely nothing except reports that Ernst was NOT a
"White Supremacist" and was not doing anything illegal - and it
was recommended that the case be closed administratively.
Hence, since no "dirt" could be unearthed on
Ernst - not even a parking meter ticket! - the fake "visa waiver
overstay" claim was launched by unseen hands, by stealing or
destroying documents that proved that Ernst was in the US LEGALLY. Without
warning and without a warrant, Ernst was arrested in what amounted to an
extrajudicial rendition - in other words, a political kidnapping! - and
whisked to Canada and then to Germany.
Now German government sources have revealed that "a
third country" was involved in the requested FBI investigations.
Since one may assume that Country 1 and Country 2 are the United States
and Canada, respectively, and since it is unlikely that the German
government would refer to itself as "a third country" - it is
not far-fetched to conclude that the mysterious "third country"
was, not too surprisingly, the State of Israel.
Ernst's comment? "We will get to the bottom of this -
soon. So we are one step further! There should be answers in the next few
weeks - and all that will be like Ariadne's famous threat. We will follow
it, and we will find the culprit - guaranteed!" (Letter to Ingrid,
September 25, 2006)
PARIS (EJP)--- Retired literature professor
Robert Faurisson has been convicted [of] Holocaust denial by a Paris
court on Tuesday over remarks he made on Iranian television.
Faurisson, 77, well known for his revisionist views, was
given a three month suspended prison term and also fined 7,500 euros.
Speaking on the Sahar 1 Iranian satellite channel in
February 2005, Faurisson said "there was never a single execution gas
chamber under the Germans". So all those millions of tourists who
visit Auschwitz are seeing a lie, a falsification?
Faurisson was found guilty of "complicity in
contesting the existence of a crime against humanity."
It is the fifth time that Faurisson is condemned for the
same offence. Patrick Gaubert, president of LICRA, the French league
against racism and anti-Semitism, welcomed the court decision.
"This gives proof that he says lies. But I am not
satisfied with the three months suspended prison term as he is a
recidivist," he added.
* Message from Dr Butz of Oct. 3, as relayed by Dr.
Faurisson's sister, Yvonne:
Robert Faurisson stood trial his past July 11 for an
interview he gave on Iranian TV early in 2005.
The court's judgment/sentence came today. Faurisson was
sentenced to three months imprisonment, suspended, and a fine of E7500 (1E
= $1.27). In addition he must pay E1 in damages to each of the three
organizations that brought charges against him, and E1500 in legal
expenses to each.
Faurisson considers this a light sentence but he will
appeal nevertheless. He wishes that numerous supporters attend the
hearings next year, at which he will stand even more firm and
uncompromising than earlier.
Yvonne added in a previous message in French, translated
"To one of our correspondents who was surprised that
the professor said that the sentence was a 'light' sentence, the latter
'This is derisory [?] if you compare it to what was
inflicted on my wife, my children and myself during those past 25 years.
But it is all the more derisory when you compare it to what is inflicted
on Zündel, Reynouard and quite a number of other French or foreign
