Zundel Can Be Deported
Outrageous travesty of justice: secret evidence, secret testimony, political decision by 'judge' who once headed secret police.

FREE SPEECH is dead in North America, and soon everyone will know
it. Ernst Zundel was kidnapped from his home in the United States two
years ago and sent to Canada on the pretext of an extremely minor
immigration technicality, on orders of corrupt Jewish and
Jewish-influenced officials, strictly because of his political and
In Canada, the Zionist persecution continued with two years of
solitary confinement without charge, horrible prison conditions, and a
secret trial with secret evidence presided over by a "judge," Pierre
Blais, who was once the head of the secret police agency which -- in
the most charitable interpretation of the evidence -- had knowingly
allowed deadly explosive devices to be sent to Zundel's home which only
by great good fortune failed to kill him.
"Judge" Blais has now "ruled." Zundel must be sent to Germany,
where doubting what Jews say about World War II is a criminal offense,
and truth is no defense, and where a long prison term -- in effect, a
life sentence -- probably awaits him.
Men and women of the West, wear black today. Drape yourself in
black, or wear a black armband, and if anyone asks you why you have
done that, tell them the story. Tell them that free speech has died and
you are mourning.
Here's an excerpt from the Globe and Mail report sent by Ingrid Zundel:
Court finds Zundel can be deported
Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel can be deported immediately as a
danger to Canadian security, a Federal Court of Canada judge has ruled.
In a searing 64-page ruling yesterday, Mr. Justice Pierre Blais
labelled Mr. Zundel a racist hypocrite who has nurtured a pacifist
image to conceal his support of right-wing extremism and his global
propagation of anti-Semitic material. "Mr. Zundel seems to thrive in
this troubled sea, surrounded by ambiguity and hypocrisy," the judge
"Mr. Zundel's activities are not only a threat to Canada's national
security, but also a threat to the international community of nations."
No appeal is possible under the controversial national security
certificate procedure, meaning Mr. Zundel could be on a plane to his
native Germany at any time.
Judge Blais said Mr. Zundel's Toronto home was "a revolving door" for every member of a global white supremacist movement.
He said Mr. Zundel deftly exploited Canada as a "safe haven," and
used his skills as a communicator and Internet pioneer to give new life
to the white supremacy movement.
Mr. Zundel, 65, has been living in solitary confinement in a
Toronto jail since his arrest on May 1, 2003. In keeping with the
security certificate process, much of the evidence at his hearing was
heard in secret.
Defence counsel Peter Lindsay said that he plans two last-ditch
attempts to obtain a stay of the deportation order -- both based on the
fact that the Supreme Court of Canada has not yet decided whether to
hear a pair of security-certificate-related cases.
"Mr. Zundel expected this result," Mr. Lindsay said last night
after visiting his client in jail. "He didn't think he was going to get
a fair shake."
"He could be gone tomorrow," said Bernie Farber, executive director
of the Canadian Jewish Congress. "All I know is, it's going to be
quick. Canadians can breathe easier now."
Judge Blais needed only to decide whether the security certificate
was "reasonable." He went much further, stating that the secret
information erased any doubt of Mr. Zundel's status as a global power
who has hobnobbed with a who's who of the racist right.
...Mr. Lindsay said last night that while representing the
marginalized and unpopular is a lawyer's highest calling, it was a
horribly disillusioning ordeal.
"I will never, ever do another security certificate case," he said.
"A lawyer can play no meaningful role in the face of secret evidence.
The lawyer's only role is as a fig leaf, to make the process look
Mr. Lindsay said his attempts to secure a stay involve two Supreme Court leave applications:
A Federal Court of Appeal decision that Judge Blais was not biased and could hear the Zundel case.
An appeal of a constitutional challenge by suspected terrorist Adil
Charkaoui to the constitutionality of the security certificate
Judge Blais said that what he heard in secret linked Mr. Zundel to
leaders of the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Nations movement and many others
who often resort to violence.
He said that if Mr. Zundel truly repudiated violence, he would have shunned these people.
Judge Blais said that Mr. Zundel is an egotist who could not hide
his pleasure at the enormous influence he exerted as a "guru of the
"I remember how proud he was when he mentioned in cross-examination
that his Zundelsite received hits from 400,000 people a month, and that
after his arrest, the number grew to 1.2-million people accessing his
website each month," Judge Blais said.
