ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny: Now more than ever!
July 28, 2004
Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
I have been waiting for the rest of this report regarding the latest
Zundel hearing from Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Free Speech
Association, but Paul is on the road a lot, as we all are - so I'll
just send you what I have, in addition to what Ernst told me.
TORONTO. July 27, 2004. It was high noon. Dressed in a light
gray suit, a white shirt, a cream coloured vest and cream tie,
Canada's most famous free speech lawyer was finally summoned to the
witness stand. Most of the morning at the hearing for political
prisoner Ernst Zundel was consumed by Crown attempts to prevent or
limit the testimony of the Battling Barrister from Victoria who had
been German dissident Zundel's lawyer for 18 years, until December,
2003, when family illness called him back home.
The tall lawyer strode to the witness stand. Would he swear
or affirm, he was asked. Indicating that he would swear his oath to
tell the truth, Mr. Christie was handed a book. It was the Moslem
"I want a Bible," he said. The request had to be repeated. A
somewhat flummoxed Judge Pierre Blais eventually had to send to the
judges' chambers to locate a copy of the Christian book which is
sacred to the vast majority of Canadians.
Before swearing, Mr. Christie, a conservative Catholic, opened the
leather-covered black book and briefly examined it to make certain it
was the Christian Bible.
In calling Doug Christie as a witness, Mr. Zundel's new
defence lawyer Peter Lindsay made one of the most dramatic moves in
free speech trials since defence lawyer Clarence Darrow called
assistant prosecuting attorney William Jennings Bryan to the witness
stand in the famous 1926 Monkey Trial in Tennessee.
Mr. Christie began his testimony by emphatically explaining
that Mr. Zundel had rejected violence and condemned people who
involved themselves in violence.
Such tactics are utterly counterproductive, Mr. Christie, quoted Mr.
Zundel as warning. "Mr. Zundel repeatedly said that every good White
man should behave like a noble person," Mr. Christie testified. --
(more to come later)
From what Ernst said to me last night, I infer that it looks like
the anticipated September 16 deportation has been averted or
postponed once more. No hearing on bail has been held, even though
Ernst was entitled to that hearing, and even though we had fully
expected another shameful judicial gyration denying bail. If the
poor Arabs, who have been in detention much longer than Ernst, don't
get bail, is he going to be the exception? Also, the second day of
hearing was canceled - and, as I remember it, will now be held on
Media was plentiful this time. Was something dramatic expected -
and derailed by Doug Christie on the stand?
Ernst also said - and this needs to go on the record - that the
judge made quite an overt effort stating that he wanted to get to the
bottom of CSIS's suspected involvement in the parcel bomb that was
sent to the Zundel-Haus in 1995, chiding the government lawyers for
not cooperating in producing the elusive witness, the petty
thief/turned CSIS agent/turned anti-CSIS snitch/turned Catholic
teacher, John Farrell, who was the main informant for the Mitrovica
book, Covert Entry, implicating CSIS for at least having
foreknowledge that the bomb was on the way via Canadian Air with some
300 passengers aboard.
Ernst believes that the judicial/government strategy is now to lean
on Farrell to recant the information given to Mitrovica so as to
whitewash CSIS. If the Zundel defense succeeds in getting Farrell on
the stand, and Farrell says, squirming, he made it all up, it lets
CSIS off the hook to dig deeper. Farrell's job, in other words, will
now be to deliver the whitewash.
I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, if he doesn't deliver the goods!
Ernst also said something I wish I had taped because of the way he
expressed it. I know that the impact of his words will be lost in my
recalling it, but the gist of it was that he feels utterly at peace
with what has been accomplished with this latest martyrdom, because
it served a cosmic purpose. Three Zundel submission to the Supreme
Court challenging the Marxist New World Order tactics are now
He said that these three documents were written with passion and
emotion by competent, committed lawyers, and that these documents,
thanks to the Internet where they will be posted before long, will be
true icons for the historical record. He said that since it seems to
have been his fate, once more, symbolically speaking, to hold the
enemies' toes to the fire by documenting their misdeeds for all the
world to see, he feels that these three documents will have
He said that he feels he accounted himself well and was up to the
challenge against very great odds.
He said that if Western society, at least in Canada and, by
extension, the United States that pimped for the Holocaust Lobby in
cooperating in his arrest, is THAT indifferent to what is happening
judicially that they don't choose to see how the New World Order will
take over their own world by setting precedents, he has no business
any more in Canada staying and fighting this battle.
With an utterly calm voice, he said, he is content to go to Germany
to finish what will be his task to complete.
It was quite a speech, delivered hesitatingly but with an almost
deadly calm, and I am not doing it justice by giving it my voice.
Ernst also said what I have heard before: That past injustices and
cruelties inflicted on the planet demand to be avenged, because the
Universe is out of kilter, and it can't right itself until the past
has been avenged.
He did not say that he was advocating it. He only said it was a
given, that it was written thus in cosmic language, and so it was
going to happen.
