". . . sometimes I think that our enemies must be possessed by rabies! What they dream up is crazy!"
Well, here is the latest, and a doozy it is! Please read it carefully
and consider it more evidence of how the Holocaust Promotion Lobby folks
keep shooting themselves in the foot! As the Spaniards would say: Ayayay!
If this is not a suicidal move, then I don't know what is!
This is the newest press release that's going out today out of the Zundel-Haus. If you have e-mail lists, please pass it on:
"In a test case that is expected to explode internationally in the wake of government attempts to define and thereby control the Internet's boundaries as an instrument of communication - is it a computer, a fax machine, a television, or a telephone? - once again Toronto-based producer and publisher Ernst Zundel will be at the center of a global hurricane, as happened already in January of this year when his U.S. based website was challenged for politically incorrect speech.
In the latest move on the part of the Jewish community to stop Zundel's "Holocaust denial" messages, an attempt will now be made to claim the Internet is like a telephone.
After the Holocaust Promotion Lobby suffered a resounding defeat in attempting to use CSIS and SIRC to silence and subsequently deport Zundel for his inconvenient publications and viewpoint on history, the Toronto Mayor's Committee on Community and Race Relations has filed with the Federal Human Rights Commission a formal complaint against Ernst Zündel under section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act.
The section prohibits so-called "hate messages" sent by telephone. The case is expected to be a test of the jurisdiction of the Canadian Human Rights Commission over the Internet under section 13 of the Act. It is bound to attract world-wide attention.
The committee alleges that Zündel's World Wide Web internet site, called the "Zundelsite", discriminates against Jews by exposing them to hatred and contempt. Zundel alleges that there exists a body of scientific and forensic evidence about false claims about the Holocaust the public is entitled to know. He merely asks to document the evidence without self-serving interference by special interest groups.
The Toronto Mayor's Committee on Community and Race Relations has a long history of attempting to silence Ernst Zündel and any other views which it dislikes.. For instance, in one of its more blatant and legally questionable attempts, Janice Dembo, the coordinator of the committee, wrote in January of 1995 to the Attorney General of Ontario setting out numerous attacks the government could make on Zündel.
Dembo expreseed the "profound dismay" of the committee that Zündel had never been charged with hate propaganda under Canada's infamous hate laws. On behalf of the committee, Dembo suggested that there were other "legal avenues" open to authorities to "deal" with Zündel, including income tax audits, the revocation of his postal privileges, and the denial of his application for citizenship. Dembo suggested that "deportation may be the most expedient method of ridding Canada of Mr. Zündel's noxious influence."
Says Zundel: "What Dembo is suggesting is that it is quite all right to harass, stalk, beset and administratively target perfectly law-abiding citizens, writers, broadcasters and publishers because these self-appointed censors don't like someone else's political viewpoint."
There have been other futile attempts on behalf of the Jewish community to silence Zündel's politically inconvenient message that the Holocaust has deteriorated into an extortion instrument by world Jewish organizations and the state of Israel, having netted to date DM 105 billion in hush money.
In September of 1992, days after Zündel's acquittal by the Supreme Court of Canada on charges of spreading "false news", representatives of the committee attended a press conference held in conjunction with the League of Human Rights of B'nai Brith, the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, and the Jamaican Canadian Centre to urge the Attorney General of Ontario to immediately lay new charges against Zündel under the hate propaganda law.
In May of 1993, then Mayor of Toronto June Rowlands wrote to the Attorney General of Ontario urging that charges be laid against Zündel for wilful promotion of hatred and that legislative amendments be brought in to make the laying of charges easier.
In 1994, the Committee wrote to Sergio Marchi, then Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, demanding that the department refuse Zündel citizenship - again because of his political and historical outlook, and for wanting fairness in history.
Harvey Goldberg, director of the policy and Planning Branch of the Canadian Human Rights Commission has already stated that "Holocaust denial" constitutes hatred. In a 1994 internal memo, Goldberg stated that "it is my view the material is inherently anti-semitic. It is intended to foment hatred and contempt against the Jewish victims of Nazi persecution and against all Jews who maintain that the Holocaust is an historical fact."
Says Zundel: "They have already pre-judged me before any hearing has taken place. Who are these people? On what authority do they act? They appointed themselves investigator, judge, jury - and now executioner? All I ask is that I be allowed to post the evidence I have collected at great costs to let the world judge me."
So far the Zundel press release. There will be more tomorrow.
Thought for the Day:
"There are rights which it is useless to surrender to the government and which governments have yet always been found to invade.
These are the rights of thinking and publishing our thoughts by speaking or writing; the right of free commerce; the right of personal freedom."
