ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny: Now more than ever!
June 19, 2003
Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
Once more about Amnesty International - straight from the Horse's Mouth:
"Amnesty International has no political affiliation, endorses no
political party, accepts no funds from governments or any political
party. Amnesty International is impartial. It is independent of any
government, political persuasion or religious creed. It does not
support or oppose any government or political system, nor does it
support or oppose the views of the victims whose rights it seeks to
protect. It is concerned solely with the protection of the human
rights involved in each case, regardless of the ideology of the
government, opposition forces or the beliefs of the individual."
You realize you have just heard a sick joke!
Below is a cross-section of letters where irate readers take that
hypocritical organization to task, with copies of their letters sent
to the Zundelsite for our bulging archives. Several of these letters
made me laugh out loud because of some eminently practical
applications of how to teach these unctuous folks a lesson:
For some time now I have been responding to AI support requests by
refusing to contribute, citing their double standards regarding
revisionists. I use their post paid envelopes and forms in my
response. You should encourage your supporters to do the same and to
mention Ernst's case specifically. I have also written them directly
on Ernst's case alone. They wouldn't know a prisoner of conscience
from an elephant. One last suggestion: while I would call them
hypocrites of the first order I wouldn't call them marxists.
I am writing for information on Ernst Zundel . Ernst has been
deported from the US for missing an immigration hearing that was not
scheduled. He has been barred from reentering the US for 20 years,
although he is legally married to a US citizen. This alone should
raise hackles on any human rights organization. As I understand,
Amnesty International Canada has accepted the charges of a
politically motivated minority as fact without further study. I
believe it is your responsibility to look into this matter. Did
Ernst Zundel just start making accusations out of thin air or did he
in fact respond to numerous accusations made against his country and
his ethnicity - accusations which have, in fact, often been proven to
be exaggerated if not outright false?
Ernst Zundel is a lifelong pacifist. He came to Canada because he
did not want to carry arms, Canada had no draft.
If you will look at the record, it is not Ernst Zundel who is guilty
of hate, but his accusers. It is an old saying, the way you shout
into the forest is the way the echo comes out. Let Ernst's accusers
explain and prove their charges.
The reputation of Amnesty International is on the line.
I find it difficult to believe that an association like Amnesty
International, which is so devoted, I believe, to fighting torture, whether
physical or psychological torture, can, to such an extent, neglect or refuse
its support to the Canadian revisionist Ernst Zündel!
Here is a man who, OK, is disliked by the Jews because he challenges the
story of the Holocaust, but who is an actual peaceful man, a man who
constantly complied with all his duties as a Canadian resident, and who has
now been kept in jail for four months while waiting to be maybe deported to
Germany, a country where you know perfectly well that there is no freedom
for those who challenge the official version of World War II.
My impression is that, by doing nothing to help liberate Ernst Zündel, you
are practising social EXCLUSION, as if that man were a social outcast who
doesn't deserve being defended for not thinking the proper way.
Wouldn't it be that Amnesty International is afraid? Afraid of getting some
reproach from the Jewish community? Yet, is it not high time now for you to
show that you are a free association, that you do not depend on anybody and
need no advice from anyone? Are you not grown-ups?
One expects from Amnesty International that you defend the rights of a man
like Ernst Zündel whose elementary rights are scorned by the government of
Canada by keeping him inside a jail and practising against him an unbearable
psychological torture at least.
I know Ernst Zündel personally. Never in my life have I ever met such a
good, peaceful, decent and altruistic man. I'm relying on you and expecting you
to show some courage in that matter.
As a member of AI, I am outraged at Amnesty's position
on the brutal incarceration of Ernst Zundel in Canada.
I am forwarding a copy of Amnesty's position as reported to
me below. Amnesty's position appears to be nothing more
than a slick example of doublespeak.
Amnesty knows full well that "Hate Speech" is nothing
more than a catchall term used to persecute people for
being politically incorrect.
The term "Hate Speech" is a cleverly crafted term used
in place of the word "slander" which according to my
Funk'nWagnalls means "to injure by maliciously
uttering a false report". However, it is well settled law
that truth is an absolute defense against slander. Therefore,
in Canada, they had to invent the term "Hate Speech" so their
"Kangaroo Tribunal" court was able to rule that truth is not a
valid defense against it.
There is a HATE CRIME being committed in Canada and
it consists of the brutal incarceration of senior citizen Ernst
Zundel by political stooges in the Canadian Government.
In the interest of human rights and concern for the integrity
of Amnesty International, I strongly urge your reconsideration
of your position on the Ernst Zundel matter.
Amnesty International, What's with you people? I have been waiting
for months for you to at least speak out on Ernst Zundel's behalf and
have heard nothing about you speaking up for one of the most blatant
exercises of repression to come to the fore in recent memory.
Your reputation for defending the free exercise of human rights could
very well be disappearing. Surely you aren't just an extension of
Maybe you should publish this: 1-800-AMNESTY.
It is the 1-800 # for Amnesty International (In USA). Since they
don't spend their donations helping political prisoners such as Mr.
Zundel, perhaps we should help them spend money on their telephone
Just a thought.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
IS IT SAFE TO TRAVEL TO CANADA?
World wide there is growing concern as regards human rights in
Canada. A certain Mr. Ernst Zuendel, a law abiding, innocent citizen,
married to an American woman, was arrested without a warrant,
kidnapped and shipped to Canada. It is rumoured that he is to be
deported to Germany where further political persecution awaits him.
It is alleged that he holds political opinions which are unpopular
with the powers that be. In pre-apartheid South Africa this kind of
persecution was a common daily occurence. Strange to say, Canada was
one of the nations which helped to erradicate this scourge. Must we
now accept that in Canada you can expect the same treatment, once so
rigoroussly applied in South Afrca?
Surely all agencies, to whom this appeal is being addressed, should
seriously question the treatment to which an innocent, law abiding
man like Ernst Zuendel is subjected.
E-H. Schwacke in South Africa where freedom of speech and opinion is
no longer violated.
I would like to know why you have done nothing on behalf of Ernst
Zundel. He is legally married to a U.S. citizen. He has been
convicted of no crime. He has been secretly spirited across an
International border. Held in poor conditions. All because of what he
thinks. The only injustice greater is your refusal to help.
I see on your site you are concerned with the disparity of race among
death-row inmates. This suggests a course of social engineering. What
is your mission statement?
For a non-profit outfit, taking membership money from members who
believe in your integrity, your organization is shamefully
politicized. Your information officer's verbose ready-made answer to
my letter from May 20 proved to me that this is the frightful reality.
To see such a well-known relief agency dive for their fig leaf the
moment they spot a "Holocaust Denier" who might need some protection
from self-serving pressure groups is a terrible sign. It is a sign
that you and your organization today are nothing more than another
big puppet petrified in the face of nefarious power.
Amnesty International is a joke upon the duped, deceived and deluded,
don't hold Your breath until they respond...they are jew controlled jerks
from the word go...
This organization is a communist front organization which has a
political agenda to make communists look good. Since you and Ernst
are the perfect red herrings to deflect the attention from the
atrocities of the communists, what ever would make you think they
would take up the cause for Ernst? They are being perfectly
Your only possible allies would be Americans like me who believe in
the right to believe what ever you want and to say what ever you
want. Ernst's deportation is an affront to the Constitution. I see
Canadian socialists as loving to have Ernst to trot out as an evil
man who will take the spot light off the atrocities of their own form
If there ever was a political prisoner who deserves the kind of help
your organization was founded to give, it is Ernst Zundel. His
treatment by the American and Canadian authorities reeks of
vindictiveness driven by a politically powerful pressure group.
Zundel was arrested without a signed arrest warrant while residing
legally in the United States, married to a US citizen. His papers
were being legally processed. He never received any official notice
that his application for residence had been "abandoned". Yet he
was accused of an immigration violation and thrown into Maximum
Detention like a common criminal.
Zundel is now barred from coming back to the United States for
20 (!) years - and he is in imminent danger of being deported to
Germany where he will be jailed for at least five years if not for
life for opinions which he published legally in Canada and the US.
Please prove that Amnesty is not under political control of the
same pressure group that is persecuting Zundel by giving him
the kind of assistance that is your stated purpose.
Here in Costa Rica were are regularly informed about people condemned
in Cuba for expressing views not officially allowed. In the
'democracies of our western world', we are taught, the human rights
for free speech are respected.
My friends and I, just before going to our knees to thank for living
in one of these democracies, heard about thousands of people
imprisoned for politically incorrect views in Germany, France,
Austria, Switzerland and - most recently - Canada, where your husband
is held in maximum security custody under the most ludicrous of
accusations: destabilizing this poor shaky country.
I suppose Fidel Castro is proud to learn that his methods - secret
hearings, solitary confinement, 'threat to national security' claims
- are exported to the 'western democracies' , instead of
democracy being imported to Cuba.
Mrs. Rimland, we support you in your admirable struggle against
Zionist arrogance worldwide.
Let that be enough for now. One day we'll flush 'em out -
guaranteed! For now, below is that list, one more time - you have
proven that you have an effect. I told that to the National Post
reporter yesterday! Write - and give them another piece of your
mind. They can use all the help they can get!
Here is that Amnesty International list one more time:[email protected]
