ED Noor: If it were not so tragic it would be a comedy ~ a very dark comedy.
On January 7, 1985 the seven week show trial of German-Canadian dissident Ernst Zundel commenced in Toronto, Canada. The "Crown" prosecutor sought to have Zundel imprisoned for two years on a charge of disseminating "false news," a surrealistic "crime" in the eyes of the Queen of England (thank God for the American Revolution).
As I sat in the press gallery next to Kirk Makin of the Toronto Globe and Mail, television reporter Claude Adams, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Canadian inquisitor, Zundel's defense team scored a historic coup by being the first to truly aggressively cross-examine the prosecution's "Holocaust survivors," and cause them to recant their exaggerations and fantasies. Zundel's team also made mincemeat out of Prof. Raul Hilberg, author of The Destruction of the European Jews, a tome regarded at the time as the reigning magisterial ~ and of course “unquestionable" ~ history of the supposed homicidal gas chambers of Auschwitz.
Prof. Faurisson was nearly beaten to death by Zionists in 1989, andFrancois Duprat, a French revisionist teacher was killed in a bombing in 1978, which severely wounded his wife.In 1984 the Institute for Historical Review's book warehouse was torched and completely destroyed.In 1985 my wife, the mother of three young children at the time, was chased down State Street in Ithaca, New York by a Zionist mob. She saved herself from a beating only by jumping into a car and locking the doors.As noted, Zundel's house was burned with impunity in 1995.Prof. Arthur Butz, author of The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, has been regularly menaced by thugs at Northwestern University.
An offending issue of Charlie Hebdo, satirizing sacred cows ~ “intouchables” (untouchables) ~ a Muslim fundamentalist and an exponent of the Talmud. The caption has them both saying, “Must not laugh at us!”
