ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny
I have been waiting for the rest of this report regarding
the latest Zundel hearing from Paul Fromm, Director of the Canadian Free
Speech Association, but Paul is on the road a lot, as we all are - so I'll
just send you what I have, in addition to what Ernst told me.
TORONTO. July 27, 2004. It was high noon. Dressed in a
light gray suit, a white shirt, a cream coloured vest and cream tie,
Canada's most famous free speech lawyer was finally summoned to the
witness stand. Most of the morning at the hearing for political prisoner
Ernst Zundel was consumed by Crown attempts to prevent or limit the
testimony of the Battling Barrister from Victoria who had been German
dissident Zundel's lawyer for 18 years, until December, 2003, when family
illness called him back home.
The tall lawyer strode to the witness stand. Would he
swear or affirm, he was asked. Indicating that he would swear his oath to
tell the truth, Mr. Christie was handed a book. It was the Moslem Koran.
"I want a Bible," he said. The request had to be
repeated. A somewhat flummoxed Judge Pierre Blais eventually had to send
to the judges' chambers to locate a copy of the Christian book which is
sacred to the vast majority of Canadians.
Before swearing, Mr. Christie, a conservative Catholic,
opened the leather-covered black book and briefly examined it to make
certain it was the Christian Bible.
In calling Doug Christie as a witness, Mr. Zundel's new
defence lawyer Peter Lindsay made one of the most dramatic moves in free
speech trials since defence lawyer Clarence Darrow called assistant
prosecuting attorney William Jennings Bryan to the witness stand in the
famous 1926 Monkey Trial in Tennessee.
Mr. Christie began his testimony by emphatically
explaining that Mr. Zundel had rejected violence and condemned people who
involved themselves in violence.
Such tactics are utterly counterproductive, Mr. Christie,
quoted Mr. Zundel as warning. "Mr. Zundel repeatedly said that every
good White man should behave like a noble person," Mr. Christie
(more to come later)
From what Ernst said to me last night, I infer that it looks
like the anticipated September 16 deportation has been averted or postponed
once more. No hearing on bail has been held, even though Ernst was entitled
to that hearing, and even though we had fully expected another shameful
judicial gyration denying bail. If the poor Arabs, who have been in
detention much longer than Ernst, don't get bail, is he going to be the
exception? Also, the second day of hearing was canceled - and, as I remember
it, will now be held on August 9th.
Media was plentiful this time. Was something dramatic
expected - and derailed by Doug Christie on the stand?
Ernst also said - and this needs to go on the record - that
the judge made quite an overt effort stating that he wanted to get to the
bottom of CSIS's suspected involvement in the parcel bomb that was sent to
the Zundel-Haus in 1995, chiding the government lawyers for not cooperating
in producing the elusive witness, the petty thief/turned CSIS agent/turned
anti-CSIS snitch/turned Catholic teacher, John Farrell, who was the main
informant for the Mitrovica book, Covert Entry, implicating CSIS for at
least having foreknowledge that the bomb was on the way via Canadian Air
with some 300 passengers aboard.
Ernst believes that the judicial/government strategy is now
to lean on Farrell to recant the information given to Mitrovica so as to
whitewash CSIS. If the Zundel defense succeeds in getting Farrell on the
stand, and Farrell says, squirming, he made it all up, it lets CSIS off the
hook to dig deeper. Farrell's job, in other words, will now be to deliver
I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, if he doesn't deliver
Ernst also said something I wish I had taped because of the
way he expressed it. I know that the impact of his words will be lost in my
recalling it, but the gist of it was that he feels utterly at peace with
what has been accomplished with this latest martyrdom, because it served a
cosmic purpose. Three Zundel submission to the Supreme Court challenging the
Marxist New World Order tactics are now pending.
He said that these three documents were written with passion
and emotion by competent, committed lawyers, and that these documents,
thanks to the Internet where they will be posted before long, will be true
icons for the historical record. He said that since it seems to have been
his fate, once more, symbolically speaking, to hold the enemies' toes to the
fire by documenting their misdeeds for all the world to see, he feels that
these three documents will have accomplished that.
He said that he feels he accounted himself well and was up
to the challenge against very great odds.
He said that if Western society, at least in Canada and, by
extension, the United States that pimped for the Holocaust Lobby in
cooperating in his arrest, is THAT indifferent to what is happening
judicially that they don't choose to see how the New World Order will take
over their own world by setting precedents, he has no business any more in
Canada staying and fighting this battle.
With an utterly calm voice, he said, he is content to go to
Germany to finish what will be his task to complete.
It was quite a speech, delivered hesitatingly but with an
almost deadly calm, and I am not doing it justice by giving it my voice.
Ernst also said what I have heard before: That past injustices and cruelties
inflicted on the planet demand to be avenged, because the Universe is out of
kilter, and it can't right itself until the past has been avenged.
He did not say that he was advocating it. He only said it
was a given, that it was written thus in cosmic language, and so it was
going to happen.
