ZGram: Where Truth is Destiny

December 12, 2000

Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

Today, the Deutsche Presse-Agentur has treated the world to some noteworthy news, offered below - with Zundelsite comments.

Please read and ponder the following, titled "Foreigners denying Holocaust on the Web face prosecution in Germany":

DPA:

Germany's supreme court ruled Tuesday that foreign ultra-rightists who deny the Holocaust on the Internet are liable to prosecution in Germany for incitement of hatred.

Zundelsite:

Think: Jews and Communists who agitated against the Hitler regime from abroad - and agitate they did! - were not sent back, i.e. "extradited", to Nazi Germany where anti-Nazi propaganda was a crime and vigorously prosecuted by Hitler's judicial system.

Are we to conclude that the present-day Germany is more dictatorial than Hitler's Third Reich? Perish the thought!

DPA:

The decision overturned a lower court ruling in Mannheim against Australian revisionist historian Fredrick Toeben in connection with a website on which he denied that thousands of Jews were killed in Nazi death camps.

Zundelsite:

Australian internet organizations and so-called "freedom of speech" cyber fighters were very arrogant about the Internet censorship struggle around the Zundelsite from 1996 on. It couldn't happen to nice Australian people, was the prevailing attitude. Have the chickens now come home to roost?

DPA:

The lower court had ruled that Toeben, who is of German origin, could not be prosecuted under German law since his writings had been fed into the Internet in Australia.

Zundelsite:

The lower courts seem to be more realistic and traditional than the enforcers of political correctness in the "Supreme Court" of Germany. Why might that be? Because they are more in touch with the people?

DPA:

Toeben, self-styled director of his "Adelaide Institute" in Australia, on his website denied the Holocaust took place, describing it as a Jewish fabrication.

Zundelsite:

"Self-styled"? Dr. Toben ***is*** directing the Adelaide Institute. Can DPA point to somebody else?

If not, why the sneer?

DPA:

The German supreme court ruled that Toeben's controversial writings were "prone to disturb the peace, especially in Germany" since they could be called up from around the world. Therefore his website claims had repercussions inside Germany which made the author liable to prosecution under national jurisdiction.

Zundelsite:

". . . prone to disturb the peace"? No proof is given that the Adelaide Institute actually did "disturb the peace". If somebody did not want to be "disturbed", all he or she had to do was not to deliberately type in the URL or follow a link to the Adelaide Institute.

DPA:

The lower court last November sentenced Toeben to 10 months in jail for defaming the memory of the dead and insulting Jews.

He had spread his revisionist remarks via the Internet and in an open letter.

Zundelsite:

Insulting Jews, dead or alive, because they question the Holocaust - by implication "defaming the dead" - will get hundreds of thousands of people all over the world in trouble - from Hilberg to Finkelstein. They better watch out!

DPA:

The supreme court in response to an appeal by Toeben, however, at the same time ordered a retrial of the case because of a procedural flaw.

Zundelsite:

Odd logic. Weird. What a place "modern" Germany has become!

It's a sad, sad spectacle to see a great people having fallen into the hands of such psychos.

DPA:

Toeben was detained in Mannheim in April 1999 while on a tour of Europe on charges of defaming the memory of the dead.

Zundelsite:

The world at large has been defaming the memory of Germany's wartime dead for 55-plus years. Not one of these scoundrels and German-haters has ever been arrested, charged or convicted.
