- Ernst Zundel's trial resumes on February 9. Believe
it or not, we now have 6 (!) attorneys on our team - three of our own,
and three the German government insists should be added. These German-government
paid attorneys will eventually also be paid by us in case of a conviction,
which Ernst believes is a foregone conclusion since no meaningful defense
is possible. As you have seen in the opening spectacle in November,
even attorneys who haven't even had a chance to submit proof of Revisionist
findings are already suspected of "being too close" to the defendant
and in danger of losing their licence! That's Germany for you today
- as many see it today, a colony of Zion, submissively doing its bidding.
- Why, then, keep struggling on, you ask?
- For the same reason that previous Holocaust trials were
fought - to use the courts as a megaphone to get the information to the
people. Even with a beholden press, enough of the substance of these
Holocaust show trials is sickering out - and more and more people are being
informed. These days, even presidents of large, important countries
are now speaking out and asking to have the Holocaust claims investigated
- The most promising development, of course, is the announced
Iranian Revisionist conference.
- Also, for newcomers, here is a quick summary why the
so-called "Holocaust" is of such paramount importance to the
powers that be, and why one sees the extraordinary measures taken by predominant
Western states to suppress any skepticism:
- The Jewish Holocaust is one of the few remaining taboos
of western society, on par with incest and paedophilia. Most people will
react with very strong feelings ranging from anger to fear, shock and disgust,
when exposed to any perceived threat to beliefs relating to the Holocaust.
Even discussing its taboo nature causes considerable levels of discomfort.
Unbeknown to most people, its continued existence serves a number of powerful
interests and comes at a terrible cost to society.
- The taboo quality of the Jewish Holocaust in Western
society is being enforced no differently from taboos in Polynesia: failure
to comply results in social and economic ruin, incarceration, physical
attack, sometimes even loss of life. Believing that the Jewish Holocaust
as we know it - as the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution
and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its
collaborators through the use of gas and other methods - actually occurred,
determines whether a person is considered a Nazi and Anti-Semite (in other
words utterly evil and a danger to society) or not.
- A political/historical taboo like this wouldn't exist
if it didn't serve very powerful interests. The most obvious is support
for Israel. Reports of the murder of six million Jews understandably generated
considerable sympathy and support for the idea of the foundation of a Jewish
state in Palestine and still helps deflecting criticism of Israel's treatment
of the Palestine people and its neighbours. Less obvious is the interest
of the political left in gaining moral superiority over the political right.
And last, but not least, there is the interest of the Allied powers, especially
the US and the UK, of justifying their war crimes committed against the
German people during World War II. Who worries about the deliberate destruction
of 90% of German civilian buildings resulting in the killing of 600,000
civilians when hearing about the gassing of six millions Jews?
- The continued existence of the Holocaust taboo, 60 years
after the end of World War II, comes at a terrible price. For one, it makes
it virtually impossible for world opinion to hold Israel responsible for
its treatment of the Palestine people. Any criticism of Israel's policies
is stifled by wholesale claims of Anti-Semitism, implying that the critic
is trying to 'finish off' Hitler's job of exterminating the Jewish people.
This doesn't necessarily occur intentionally. In many cases it's simply
the result of a Holocaust induced paranoia. For two, it makes it easier
for the US government to continue its use of aerial bombing against civilians
as a means of warfare. The killing of more than 3000-4000 civilians per
month in Iraq pre-dominantly through US air strikes wouldn't be possible
without the belief in US military and political circles that the killing
of civilians in air warfare ('collateral damage') is not a war crime, a
belief that has its roots in the unpunished strategic bombing of Germany
and Japan during World War II.
- Historical revisionism is not about denying the truth.
It's about establishing the truth, regardless of the outcome. The failure
of the political left to embrace Holocaust revisionism is depriving it
of the potentially most powerful weapon against its political enemies.
It should stop fighting against its political enemy of 60 years ago and
start using all available means to fight today's battles.

- And, finally, in a letter excerpt to me, I share with
you a few thoughts from the man who is credited with starting it all by
sending a forensic team to Auschwitz - and found it not what it purported
to be. Remember also that Ernst is forbidden by the laws of Germany
to refer to the "Holocaust" in any way - except in reverential
tones. In the letter below he simply refers to it obliquely or as
"the other issue":
- You had rhetorically asked me in one of your letters
why I thought the way I did - and where that knowledge, the overarching
comprehension, came from. Here's how my "Weltbild" was built
- and continues to evolve.
- I thought I should close off the old year with this
review - and what a year it was, with me, in effect, being run out of the
North American Continent where I lived and worked for almost half a century!
For what? I wonder how many people reflect on that extraordinary
move by three states - with a fourth the chief beneficiary, in the short
term at least.
- In the long term, my case will work itself through the
entrails of world politics. Although publicly my detractors never
tired of informing the world that I did not have enough supporters to fill
a phone booth, behind the scenes, as the [German] court papers reveal,
money and efforts expended prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the
most influential and well-connected schemers, movers and shakers, who constitute
the real string pullers in world affairs, were concerned enough to suspend
their own rules, to violate their constitutional provisions in three countries
to take out of circulation one lone artist of pension age! One man
- [Think of] the enormous organizational effort it took
over decades to achieve that silencing! I once again appreciated
what Francis Parker Yockey pointed out in his epochal book, "Imperium"
- little noticed, hardly known - that, in this age, the man of politics,
the person working with, or upon, the hearts, minds, and souls of people
would be superior to the man of finance, the military, and the judiciary.
Yockey ought to have known, having been a gifted lawyer, researcher, and
investigator for the Allied War Crimes Commission in Europe. He investigated
and interviewed the "hated", just defeated elite of Europe. That's
how he came to his sensational knowledge and insights, which he condensed
in this sweeping overview of the situation of the West and its endangered
- Francis Parker Yockey suffered a fate very similar to
my own, with one difference: He did not have my knack for getting
the news catapulted into the public arena. He worked away quietly
in that monestery in Ireland, writing his books and appeals, which were
noted only by his enemies, whom he had identified as the real Enemy of
- I was very fortunate to be handed the two volumes of
"Imperium" given to Mr. Arcand, [a nationalist Canadian leader
of a Party] by Yockey in the late '50s when he stayed with Mr. Arcand for
long talks, long walks, and played the most glorious music on Mr. Arcand's
piano for hours.
- My teacher was no slouch, Ingrid! Mr. Arcand was for
many years the culture and music editor and critic of La Presse in Montreal.
La Presse was the largest circulation French language newspapar outside
Paris. Life Magazine devoted a large photo-illustrated section to him because
he attracted 5,000 people at La Guardia Airport in New York during an American
speaking [tour] about 1937. The papers referred to him as the Eagle
of the North. Through making available to me his library, and walking me
through history, culture, religion, and political ideology, he saved me
decades of going down dead ends and false trails. Thank God!
- Ingrid, I think that early schooling laid the solid
foundations and supplied the important criteria and filters - the methodology
that has served me ever after. Served me well, as you know!
- Mr. Arcand was to me what Socrates was to Plato. He
was to me the proverbial master who appeared because the pupil was ready.
I don't know if Mr. Arcand was even aware of it or if it was just a natural
trait with him. He obviously spotted in me, the young, artistically
inclined peasant boy, a kind of unspoiled talent. We complemented one another,
as odd as it seems at first glance - he, of the well-educated, aristocratic
French-Canadian landed gentry, and I, an inquisitive young man. It
was a magic time for me and left in me a memory which deeply embedded itself
within me. This almost sleepwalker-like knowledge, soaked up like
a sponge, already condensed in Mr. Arcand's life experience, was stripped
by me of the parochial overtones which clouded it, since Mr. Arcand was
naturally a firm Catholic Conservative believer, as was the Zeitgeist in
French-Canada at the time.
- The rest was, of course, organizationally difficult
to achieve, the pursuit was costly, but the outcome was predictable and
predestined. Ingrid, logic - like mathematics or music or medicine
- has its very own rules and laws, as firm and immutable as Newton's laws
of gravity. It is, of course, easy to write this down in this condensed
form after years of reflection and the actual hands-on role I played in
bringing it about. And here comes the karmic/cosmic role of the Enemies
of Truth: Their assaults, attacks, shrill criticism of my activities
kept me focused far more than if they had simply ignored me. But
no - Sabina [Citron, president of the Canadian Holocaust Remembrance Association]
and her coterie of haters saw to it that I had simply no choice but to
increase my efforts, hone my skills, and study, research, network, ask
for advice, contact Dr. Lindsay, Arthur Butz, Mark Weber, Robert Faurisson
- and eventually, in a roundabout way, Fred Leuchter. Had it not
been for [my detractors'] intense ethnic hatred, had they left me alone,
Ingrid, never would I have so concentrated on the solution to these problems.
The trials were the outcome. The massive publicity, negative or not,
put that topic on the map and into the consciousness of hundreds of millions
scattered all over the world.
- Fate and my enemies cast me in the role of this Don
Quixote, tilting at windmills in this macabre bean-counting exercise, which
I hated from the outset. Ingrid, I shied away from this issue for
a decade because I had a far more positive, forward-looking vision of the
world, which could only be realized via the political arena. That's
why that was my decade of learning in the 1960s - of learning the use of
the tools I would need for that life, learning English, French, testing
my speaking skills - and, yes, learning the art of salesmanship.
Salesmanship permeates all of human life - even courtship is salesmanship,
if properly analyzed. So is politics. I knew that from Day
- The 1960s were my decade of self-teaching. Mr.
Arcand was a one-man university with a vast storehouse of knowledge.
[Over time], I drifted of necessity into other fields because the Canadians
denied me citizenship, which abruptly slammed the doors shut on what even
news media people had thought was a promising career in the political arena
at the time of my election campaigns. I was content to leave the
other issue to the historians. However, it became evident that these
men of little intellectual courage were not going to come to the defense
of not only my own German people but of Western civilization as a whole.
- I decided that the streets could shame the Ivory Tower
dwellers into dealing with the topic - and proceeded to do just that.
At least I attempted to do it, and won some over with my own research results
and my pin pricks of pointed poking, prodding, cajoling. That part
ended in the trials, which were my way of public education, using the courtroom
as the auditorium for my experts.
- It worked. The rest is history.
- That's when the administrative harassment started -
mail denial, snooping, customs, postal seizures, passport and travel restrictions!
When that did not stop the dissemination of information, next came beatings,
arrests, bombs and other assassination attempts. The judicial persecution
was only part and parcel of that, but even German and Canadian courts were
then still independent enough to deliver stunning victories. They
made it clear to my enemies that the courts were not willing to do their
bidding so easily.
- When the Supreme Court ruled in my favor, my detractors
were so shocked that I had a brief respite. Only afterwards came
the mass demonstrations, the arson, and the parcel bomb.
- I survived.
- My enemies realized in the decade of the 1980s that
I was not the clown and buffoon - what Alan Borovoy [Jewish Counsel to
the Canadian version of the ACLU] called "...a peripheral non-entity
with not enough support to fill a phone booth." They realized
what they had on their hands was a street-wise, organized peasant who had
learned a few things that the trials had forced upon me - their efforts
were not going to be cake walks. All their deprecating insults heaved
upon me for the last decades were not going to make that debate go away.
The genie was out of the bottle.
- That's when they decided to go the legislative route
and change the goal posts by introducing ever more repressive laws. The
Human Rights abuses via their own institutions were meant to finish what
the fire and the bomb had not achieved. Infiltration was also stepped up
- Bristow and the likes arrived.
- The rest you know - and you and I had a few years of
heaven and contentment. And then they came for me. In America.
- That it would come to that [after that] fateful-for-us
[9/11] September day was clear to me - if not yet to you. The arrest,
the deportation - a camouflaged rendition into the hands of my deadly enemies
- was the beginning of the slamming of the door [for them] as it
was to my political ambitions earlier on. Thanks to the protracted
legal struggle, the hard reality has been temporarily obscured and is not
yet comprehended by the uninitiated in the cabbalistic machinations of
- Machiavelli was a boy scout compared to the millennia
of deviousness, deception, steered corruption and infiltration these people
could fall back on. Remember the study by the U.S. War College published
during the week of those tragic events of September '01? The report was
leaked the Washington insiders' way of alerting the public to problems
and dangers suppressed by the ruling oligarchy. It fingered only
one nation that could initiate something [like 9/11] and then blame it
- Ingrid, these experts KNEW even then!
