ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny
We have many unsung heroes in our midst who don't get nearly
enough praise and recognition for what they do in helping to free Ernst
Zundel. I am constantly touched by the esteem and affection they profess for
a man who has been systematically demonized for decades.
One such hero is Ron Gostick of the Canadian Intelligence
Service - NOT to be confused with that Stalinist atrocity that calls itself
Canadian Security Intelligence Service, CSIS in short. Ron has been an
activist on behalf of a responsible, conservative Canada for decades -
possibly for half a century! Untiringly!
I met Ron only once in 1996 in Canada where I was invited to
do the keynote for the George Orwell Award dinner. That in itself was quite
an experience! An award was to be given for Excellence in Freedom of Speech
- and like criminals we had to meet by secret codes in one place on a
deserted parking lot, then on the sly be guided to another place across some
back roads, up a hill where the dinner was to take place - all this to avoid
I have never forgotten that searing experience!
Ron Gostick was there, as part of the audience, and after I
finished my speech, he came up to me, nearly in tears, tried to say
something but could not get it over his trembling lips, and merely ended up
hugging me. Hard! I did not know then who he was - how important he had been
to Canada. Since then I found out that he is one of Canada's last stalwarts
trying to protect what is still left of Canada's freedom.
Here is a little secret, and I doubt that he'll mind that I
am telling it: I have been told that for a long, long time Ron Gostick had
his reservations about Zundel. He went by what the media said. All that has
changed. Few in Canada's huge citizenry have been as frank and as forward as
Ron, trying not only to bring relief to Ernst, but to protect the country
that he loves from its rapacious destroyers.
Ron Gostick, you are truly one in untold millions!
The May/June issue of his publication has just come out, and
the supplementary section is exclusively devoted to Ernst Zundel. I shall
quote from it below, even though I have a feeling I may have already
published part of this letter somewhere, since I get archival copies of
Ernst's letters from all over the world:
Canada's Prisoner of Conscience writes from prison cell By
Saturday, April 24 [Ernst's birthday]:
Since sending all the material and Letter to the printer's
for our May/June issue, a further insightful document has reached us
respecting the Ernst Zundel case, which we have covered in our recent
reports, and which I feel should be drawn to your attention immediately.
Consequently, this unprecedented 4th supplementary section.
Our readers, who have been following this incredible story,
already know that Mr. Zundel has been incarcerated for about 16 months, most
of it in the Toronto West Detention Centre - as yet without any specific
charge but merely on the strength of a political "Ministerial
Certificate" alleging that he is possibly a threat to Canadian
security! And we have already reported on the horrible, subhuman conditions,
including almost non-sustainable food rations and deprivation of his regimen
of vitamins and herbs with which for years he has been battling cancer, as
well as the long series of "kangaroo court" appearances inflicted
upon him, where truth is no defence and he can't cross-examine those
individuals or groups who are feeding the judge and prosecution the stories
and allegations against him.
And we do know from the public record of this prisoner of
conscience that he resided in Canada for over 40 years with no criminal
record whatsoever; that he is a pacifist and his alleged "crime"
by those promoting his persecution is being politically incorrect respecting
some aspects of WWII casualties.
Yesterday I received by post a letter from Mr. Zundel,
handwritten with pencil in his prison cell, dated 16-4-04, which gives one a
picture of this poor, demonized - yet brave and majestic - prisoner's mental
balance and perspicacity after long months of satanic deprivation, stress,
and psychological intimidation.
Following is his letter.
Dear Friend Gostick:
It's Friday, I was in court on the 13th and 14th of April
again, and I just wanted to give you a quick update on the way I perceive
things after those two days.
The Judge heard more secret evidence last week in Ottawa and
this week in Toronto before the proceedings started. It's more than eerie,
when one is told that at the outset of a court date, because invariably it
means that more accusations will have been made to the Judge, and more,
possibly concocted, fabricated, but in any case unopposed and untested by
the defense testimony and documents have been given to the judge, which I
and my lawyers have no way of even guessing what it might be.
I would have to know someone like Edgar Cayce, America's
most famous somnambulist known as the "Sleeping Prophet" to even
have a remote chance to divine as to what the Jewish side and their minions
in government and the bureaucracy have fed to the poor Judge last week and
this week in the form of lies, poison and innuendo.
You talk about Star Chamber proceedings - and that in the
world of the globe-girdling Internet! To listen to the absolutely convoluted
objections, and the explanations of that poor Judge who has to defend the
government's indefensible position is a very sobering and very sorry sight!
The way I see it:
The Zundel team, backed by its valiant band of dedicated
helpers, and many little contributions from largely pensioners of the WWII
generation, has clawed its way up the ladder, rung by rung, in the judicial
bureaucracy. Imagine how much money has been spent by the Canadian
oligarchy, since 1968 at least, to get me - all because I, in fact, blew the
whistle on the likes of Trudeau, Marchant, Pelletier, Laurendeau, Chretien,
and Andre Quellet taking over the moribund, decrepit Liberal Party in the
I was, of course, a young, innocent, na�ve, idealistic
German immigrant who believed that I had equal rights, and that I therefore
expected and demanded equal access to the political process. Brother, did I
have a rude awakening!
Once they denied me citizenship - without giving me a reason
why - I knew that there was an oligarchy in place that would see to it that
outsiders muscling in would suffer short shrift. The rest of my life in
Canada has basically demonstrated that fact of political life in Canada.
There has been, in fact, a vendetta against me, the
outsider, since I upset them by making it to the Liberal Convention as an
accredited Dark Horse candidate. Their pursuit of me has been relentless and
has culminated in my present situation. I wanted you and your many
supporters, who have been so generous in spirit and financially, to know
that this is what happened to me.
I am not aware of one single, solitary thing I ever said,
advocated or did in my almost 45 years in this country that could be
considered disloyal to Canada and its people. If there had been even a hint
of disloyalty, real danger, or criminality, I would have been dragged into
court decades ago, for no man has been as observed and scrutinized, has had
his mail opened and his phones and faxes bugged as I have.
I have lived under court-imposed gag orders - the Globe and
Mail called it "the most sweeping gag order ever " issued against
a Canadian resident - after my 1985 trial. I have been under bail orders for
over ten years in the 1980s and early 1990s. I have had to register my every
move out of the province with the Provincial Attorney General, tell him in
writing where I would be going, where I would be staying, when I would be
leaving, and when I would be returning. Exactly what Stalin imposed on his
citizens during his reign of terror!
Soon all this will be coming to an end. If the Canadian
Supreme Court does not put an end to these clear violations of the Charter
of Rights and Freedoms and afford me, the dissident - a lifelong, peaceful,
non-violent, non-criminal dissident, I want to stress! - its constitutional
protections, then these protections exist on paper only. If the Canadian
judicial system, the politician, and the media - in short, if Canada's elite
fails me, they fail themselves, because once I have been railroaded out of
this country under these abominable laws, nobody in Canada with any
original, dissident thought in politics, history, even the sciences, will be
safe from persecution and the accusation that he or she is a terrorist �
and Canada will walk across the threshold to a Police-Intelligence Agency
and Judicial Dictatorship seen only in the old Soviet Union in modern times.
Although Communism may have disappeared in the former Soviet
Union, it is alive and virulent in the halls and corridors of power! Its
adherents do not wear Red Stars on their baseball caps or T-shirts. They
wear Gucci loafers and Pierre Cardin suits and carry law degrees in their
attach� cases. They are more dangerous to the citizens, institutions and
traditions of this country than a whole army of thugs and criminals carrying
Uzzi machine guns!
My heart bleeds for this country - a country of infinite
promise, unbelievable wealth and endless opportunity! We, the now living
baby boomer generation, have failed Canada! What we are bequeathing to our
children and grandchildren is a crime-ridden society, drowning in debt - a
debt which, in effect, amounts to perpetual slavery.
May history record that I, Ernst Zundel, together with my
valiant band of supporters, tried to stem this tide, this slide into
Thank you, my friends! If I had to do it all over again, I
would do it again - only better, wiser, more passionately!
Ernst Zundel, in prison.
Ron Gostick's concluding comments:
"Well, that certainly confirms Mr. Zundel's contention
that for years he has been a victim of a deliberate and orchestrated
diabolical vendetta. Yet, through all of this, and a ruthless
kidnapping-style of arrest and abduction, a forced deportation followed by
nearly 16 months of solitary confinement under abominable conditions - after
all this, do we find a bitter man full of anger and rage? Indeed we do not!
Rather, we find a 64-year-old prisoner of conscience, quiet, gentle and of
simple grace, deep composure and at peace with himself and his Creator. A
man of deep insight, understanding and mental clarity. Indeed, he sums up
the essence of our present-day conditions in Canada far more realistically
than do our politicians, our judiciary or present-day historians! A man who
feels sorrow for the judge who has to administer and inflict such absurd and
cruel injustice on him!
"The truth is: Ernst Zundel is no security risk to our
country. He is incarcerated because a certain influential minority group
wants him incarcerated or otherwise eliminated. The tragedy and shame is
that our government, in the name of Canada, has become both an accomplice
and the executor of this vile criminal act.
Note: This 4-page report has been sent to all MPs and
senators, to over 600 Canadian newspapers, to the newsrooms of all English
language television and radio stations in Canada, and to all universities
and colleges - with a short personal note! Any financial help in this
mailing project would be appreciated.
