>  If you want to see Zundel Demonization, Canadian Style,  read the 
>talking-out-of-both-sides-of-the-mouth, poison-dripping editorial 
>below.  This has been going on for more than twenty years!  And, sad 
>to say, the Globe and Mail is mild, compared to the absolute Zionist 
>poison the Toronto Star dishes out.

>   It is unlikely that many Canadians spend their time thinking about 
>Ernst  Zundel  Given the Holocaust denier's abhorrent views, they 
>might not be  overly concerned to hear he has been sitting in jail 
>for 18 months,  fighting deportation to Germany on claims that he 
>poses a danger to  Canadian citizens. But in a country that believes 
>in civil liberties,  the use of a national security certificate to 
>keep Mr. Zundel in  solitary confinement in a Toronto detention 
>centre should raise serious  concerns. He's a weak reed to defend, 
>but it is the treatment of the  weakest reeds that tests our true 
>commitment to constitutional rights.
>   This is an extraordinary use -- more to the point, abuse -- of the 
>secret-trial legislation that emerged after the attacks of Sept 11, 
>2001, to increase national security against terrorist acts. Most of 
>the  evidence against Mr. Zundel has been heard in private, 
>compromising his  right to a defence; his lawyers attack it as a 
>mass of hearsay. The  government need show only that it acted 
>"reasonably" in stripping him of  his rights, a preposterously low 
>legal hurdle. What little has emerged  suggests the Crown is arguing 
>not that he has incited violence, but that  his material might be 
>read by people who might incite violence -- guilt  by association. 
>  Mr. Zundel was quick to challenge the constitutionality of the 
>security  certificate, but the Ontario courts ruled that he should 
>argue his case  in Federal Court, where his deportation challenge is 
>being heard. The  Supreme Courts of Canada this week declined to 
>hear his appeal. On  procedural grounds, the decision may have been 
>appropriate. But the  willingness of Canadian authorities to twist 
>the narrow purpose of the  security-trial legislation to go after 
>Ernst Zundel is a blot on  Canadian justice. Yes, even if it helps 
>the country get rid of a nasty character.
