ZGram: Where Truth is Destiny

July 29, 2001

Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

The CBC Newsworld Network broadcast an encore presentation of the ambiguous Errol Morris documentary 'Mr. Death', starring prominent Revisionists like Fred Leuchter, David Irving and Ernst Zundel, on Sunday, July 22 on The Passionate Eye, a program that features 'award-winning documentaries.'

The documentary film was shown ***twice*** last week ***without any interruption*** at 10:10 p.m. EDT (7:10 p.m. PDT) and, again, at 1:10 p.m. EDT (10:10 p.m. PDT).

How desperate our enemies must be that the public believe their version of the "Holocaust"!


In 1994 alone, Germany paid $172 million to Russia as "compensation for Nazi-era victims". However, an audit showed that at least $36 million of that money has simply disappeared.

The Russian prosecutor-general's office is reported to be investigating - although they won't confirm that it is so.


Citing a "lack of positive response" from the Vatican to a request for additional Holocaust-era documents, a joint Catholic-Jewish panel of historians suspended a study of the Church's activities during World War II.

"Not surprising," says Efraim Zuroff, director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem, in an interview with JPost Radio's Nina Solomin.

The Wiesenthalers are on record that they aren't happy about the purported censorship.


In a press release dated July 20, 2000, the American Jewish Committee applauded the British Appellate Court ruling against "Holocaust Denier" David Irving.

The Court of Appeal ruling upheld Judge Charles Gray's lower court judgment that Irving had "distorted and manipulated history in order to promote his anti-Semitic, racist, and far-right politics, and that Irving is a pro-Nazi polemicist".

Judge Gray held that Dr. Lipstadt was justified in calling Mr. Irving a Holocaust denier in her book ``Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.''

Irving has to come up with the first payment of costs assessed against him in just a couple of weeks - or face bankruptcy.


The big story on the international scene is that Denmark threatened to arrest the new Israeli ambassador, former Shin Bet chief Carmi Gillon, because of his public stand on torture.

The Danish Danish Justice Minister, Franc Hensen, stated that Denmark must arrest Gillon because the country is committed to the United Nations to arrest persons responsible for torturing prisoners.

Foreign minister Shimon Peres's response: "How Do You Fight Terrorism"? Calling upon "our friends in Denmark," Peres said, cheekily: "Do you have a different way to fight terror?"


What are described as "French student groups" and "anti-racist organizations" are trying to draw attention to a university "long known as a breeding ground for Holocaust denial and other far-right activities."

The university so targeted is Jean Moulin, named for a leader of the French Resistance during World War II.

Late last month, two professors who in 1990 approved with honors a thesis attempting to disprove the Holocaust changed their evaluation of the work to "unacceptable." The dissertation, completed under the guidance of a history professor, attempted to validate the theories of Paul Rassinier, the father of French Holocaust revisionism.

The agitating students are not happy with what they consider a partial concession. Although Holocaust denial is on the wane in France, at least that is their claim, the university provides it "with the trappings of legitimacy", student leaders warn.


CNSNews of July 25, 2001 reported how Israel and a major American Jewish organization sought to enlist the support of the diplomatic community ahead of an international conference against racism, fearing that the conference would blast Israel and the Jewish people for the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

To quote CNSNews reporter, Julie Stahl:

"The resolution, prepared in Tehran last February, revives the controversial "Zionism is racism" resolution that was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in 1975 at the urging of Arab States, and then finally repealed in 1991.

"Zionism is the national self-determination movement on which the existence of the State of Israel is based. But Arab states argue that Israel's very existence is racist because Jews from around the world are permitted to become citizens by virtue of their Jewishness while others aren't.

"Draft texts prepared ahead of the conference also refer to "holocausts" rather than the Holocaust, while anti-Semitism has been left off a list of forms of racism."


In that same report, the ADL's director, Abe Foxman, also delivered a memorable quote.

Treatment of the Jewish people, Foxman opined sagely, was like a barometer of society. Like canaries miners used to send into the mines to test if the air was healthy to breathe, Jews were treated in society in a way that tested civility, decency and democracy in the world.

Question: What "barometer" is applied to Israel's treatment of the Palestinians? Certainly not "civility, decency and democracy"!


To its eternal shame, the US Justice Department has found another octogenarian to hound. Officials have begun deportation proceedings against a former US citizen accused of persecuting Jews during World War II in Nazi-occupied Lithuania.

In filings in a Tampa, Florida, federal immigration court, the department's Office of Special Investigations accused Algimantas Dailide, 80, of joining the Nazi-sponsored Lithuanian Security Police, known as Saugumas, in their arrest and search for Jews who tried to escape the Vilnius ghetto.

Sixty-four people have been denaturalized and 54 removed from their US residences since the O.S.I. initiated its program in 1979 to take legal action against former Nazi collaborators residing in the United States. Among them was John Demjanjuk, 81, a Ukrainian-born retired auto worker whose US citizenship was restored in 1998 after an Israeli appeals court overturned his conviction and death sentence on charges later proved to be a case of mistaken identity.

Demjanjuk has been dragged one more time before the courts by the same O.S.I. - which used forged ID cards and falsified Soviet "evidence" to railroad him the last time!


Scottish authorities have been obliging the "Nazi Hunters'" demands as well. Officials have began extradition proceedings against Anton Gecas, a resident of Edinburgh accused of Nazi-era genocide.

Gecas, 85, is wanted in Lithuania, which last March formally asked Britain to extradite him to face charges of murdering Jews in World War Two.

The Nazi-hunting Simon Wiesenthal Centre, which has been pressing Scottish authorities to speed up the extradition process, greeted the decision to issue the arrest warrant with "great satisfaction".

Meanwhile, Solomon Morrell, the torturer and serial killer of over 1,000 Silesian Germans after the war, fled to Israel, after Polish authorities wanted to prosecute him for these crimes. Israel is refusing to extradite this proven mass murderer. Ask your librarian to get you the John Sack book, "An Eye for an Eye".


Moshe Weizman of the Associated press reports that Israel has compiled a list of countries where its political and military leaders - including Prime Minister Ariel Sharon - could face legal challenges under war crimes laws. This list was prompted by concerns expressed by current and retired security officials

"...who wanted to know whether they might be arrested or prosecuted while traveling abroad, ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said."

Nachshon did not elaborate which countries would be considered problematic for Israeli officials, but chances are he was thinking of the very countries where it is illegal to question anything related to the "Holocaust".

Dov Weissglas, legal advisor to Prime Minister Sharon, says Jews could be arrested and prosecuted for crimes they did way back to pre-"independence" (1948) days!


Many suspect that a closet Revisionist must have been up to some mischief in the hilarious sign that appeared in posters all over Berlin.

"Den Holocaust hat es nie gegeben" - (The Holocaust never happened) - it claims in a country where people get arrested and fined, and sometimes even thrown in jail, for less provocative statements found in private correspondence after government-inspired midnight raids.

Der Spiegel, Germany's most important news magazine with over 4 million readers, ran a supercilious article asking, tongue-in-cheek: "What poster?" describing the indifference of passersby.

"I do not wish to condemn [the poster]," said Paul Spiegel president of the central council of German Jews, although he did warn that "provocation has its limits".

Spiegel claims he only knew of this campaign a day before it started. "Garish, provocative gags are not appropriate for the Holocaust," he wailed.


NewsMax.com of July 27, 2001 reports that

"...(c)alling Palestinians "snakes" and "vipers" apparently passes for political correctness in Israel, where a rabbi whose political party holds 17 seats in parliament lashed out at Arabs and warned that the Messiah would come and promptly 'send them on their way' to hell.

"In the old city of Jerusalem they're swarming like ants. They should go to hell - and the Messiah will speed them on their way," said Rabbi Ovadia Yossef during his a weekly sermon broadcast over Israeli army radio."

Is it any wonder, then, that the Israeli Army behaves towards the Palestinians with such contempt and in such brutal ways - when one of their most visible rabbis calls these unfortunate people "snakes" and "vipers"?
