- "I think that they've given a strong message ...
to the world, that I believe will bring a tremendous amount of comfort
to Holocaust survivors." --Bernie Farber, chief executive officer,
Canadian Jewish Congress.
- "The sentencing today of Ernst Zundel also represents
a slap in the face to Iranian President Ahmadinejad's hateful campaign
of Holocaust denial that unfortunately has generated too much support
in the Arab and Muslim world." --The Simon Wiesenthal Center.
- 67-year-old Ernst Zundel's "crime" is to blaspheme
the religion of Holocaustianity's "execution gas chamber" shrine
at Auschwitz- Birkenau.
- Protestant and Catholic Europeans have a long and ignominious
history of burning, tormenting and imprisoning heretics. Zundel is now
numbered with Michael Servetus, Edmund Campion and countless other independent
thinkers whose ideas could not be contested, so they had to be silenced.
- If Mr. Zundel really were a flat-earther, he would be
laughed into oblivion. But the fact is, he has been a mentor to some of
the elite scientific revisionists in the field, including former Max
Planck chemist Germar Rudolf, who is on trial in Germany on similar charges.
- The most disgusting aspect of the verdict against Zundel,
aside from his incarceration, is the effect it will have on the Muslim
world, which is sanctimoniously hectored by the West to permit more freedom
of expression and to be less defensive about blasphemy of Muhammad. But
the imperial West has deigned to create an exception for its own tutelary
idols, about which no blasphemy may be countenanced, on penalty of five
years' imprisonment. The verdict against Zundel represents a resurgence
of the Dark Ages and that fact will not be lost on Muslims.
- This is not the last word on Ernst! The enemies of freedom
have not broken his spirit. He has been on trial intermittently for twenty-
seven years. In that time, he has never recanted, compromised, or uttered
a single weasel word of accommodation to the Auschwitz flatulence, even
though, had he done so, he might have received a lighter sentence or been
- Mr. Zundel stands today as an example of a man who speaks
spiritual truth to overwhelming material power. His ideas cannot be contained
by cages and bars. From Venezuela to Iran, a new world --a youthful world
-- for whom the rotten, old, Skull-and-Bones mesmerism has lost its spell-binding
hold, is watching and witnessing.
- The verdict against Ernst Zundel is a searing indictment
of the post-modernist West. It is a self-administered "slap in the
face" not to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but to every jailer-rabbi and
inquisitorial Zionist who applauds it. With each clap of their hands their
studied pose as the eternal victims is unmasked, and all that stands before
us is the mentality that wrote the book on tyranny, in Babylon, circa
