- In 1984, Ernst Zundel was charged for "spreading
false news" by a wealthy Holocaust survivor, Sabina Citron, on the
basis of two documents: "The West, War, and Islam" and "Did
Six Million Really Die?" At the conclusion of a dramatic seven-week,
head-line making trial, he was pronounced innocent of having "spread
false news" with his 4-page pamphlet, "The West, War, and Islam"
but was pronounced guilty for having published - not written! - "Did
Six Million Really Die?"
- The rest is history.
- Ever since, as all the world now knows, the Zundel name
became synonymous with "Holocaust Denier."
- The first pamphlet was conveniently forgotten. The booklet,
"Did Six Million Really Die?" became the Zundel Mark of Cain.
- Only recently has Ernst been cleverly "re-christened"
by Judge Blais, a former CSIS boss, as the world's most influential "White
Supremacist", allegedly intent on "destabilizing Germany"
and being an "international threat to the community of nations."
- As I have mentioned many times, only in 1994 did I meet
Ernst and launch the Zundelsite to help him in his outreach. It must have
been that year when I first read, edited, and updated "The West,
War, and Islam" to make it more relevant to the mid-Nineties in order
to ward off the various censorship attempts by vested political interests
to silence Ernst's message and voice.
- Then I forgot all about it.
- Only this morning, as I re-read the small pamphlet, did
it strike me as highly ironic - here is a man, decried as the world's most
vociferous "racist" - and what did he say already more than 20
years ago? In the defense of which he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars?
While his enemies had their fat bills paid from the government trough?
And for which he is now held in prison in his native Germany?
- You be the judge. It doesn't sound "racist"
to me - as "racism" is now understood.
- (One final thought, in brackets: The "Communism"
Ernst describes in the pamphlet below is what good people now confront
as Neo-Con style ideology. In previous decades, it was to us, who are
of European background, plain murderous Soviet-style, Stalinist-style Communism.
I disclaim any knowledge of what Arabs now call "Communism" which
seems to be a different critter altogether, apparently connoting a liberation
struggle of which we in the West don't have sufficient knowledge - or even
- THE WEST, WAR, AND ISLAM
- By Ernst ZUNDEL
- A message to the Islamic World: The Battle for Freedom
Is Won Only in the Minds of Men: The West's distorted viewpoint of what
is loosely called "the Arab world" is Danger Nr.1 for all the
- If the typical Islamic person could perceive what the
typical Westerner thinks about him - his traditions, culture and religion
- he would be amused, shocked, or perhaps even frightened. To the Western
mind, the Islamic world is inscrutably bemusing - an exotic enigma, part
fairy tale, part attitudes formed in colonial times in which, frequently,
perfectly normal and logical acts are construed with misunderstandings
- To the Westerner, the Islamic world is a lurid hodge-podge
of exotic imagery - a myth adapted from 1001 Nights - comprised of huge
harems, wild sex orgies, opulent palaces, flying carpets, incredible wealth,
fierce warriors, hordes of thieves, shrewd and dishonest traders, cruelty
and religious fanaticism.
- Take away the flying carpets, and the West could be described
in similar terms - but neither description would be accurate.
- Not only do we need to consider this distorted Western
viewpoint - which by itself, and minus its negative aspects, would be mere
ignorance and relatively harmless - but we all must consider that these
distorted viewpoints are deliberately being used and often magnified to
goad the West into a future criminal war against the Islamic world. These
unjust views, already previously held and reinforced since the Gulf War,
are now the standard thinking by many Westerners - and are being used to
JUSTIFY such wars!
- The West has at its disposal tremendous media facilities
for the education of the public, but until now, these facilities of information,
education and entertainment have been largely used purposely to misinform,
to miseducate, and to instill hatred against the Islamic peoples. Just
as certainly, this situation has not come about by accident.
- The West's mainstream media are controlled by a small
group of unscrupulous men who know exactly what they are doing, and who
will stop at nothing in order to attain their often criminal and murderous
ends. This same group of media manipulators and its predecessors broadcast
and published anti-German propaganda in both world wars and included the
Japanese as victims and targets of their hate campaigns in the Second World
War. These men are brainwashing experts. On their account, millions of
Westerners, who had never met a German or Japanese, were inflamed with
murderous hatred - sufficiently so that they killed millions of persons
who might otherwise have been their customers and friends.
- If it can be done against Germans and Japanese, it can
be done against the Islamic peoples - and it is being done since 1947 against
the Palestinians and Israel's neighbors.
- We Germans have learned through our own sad experience
since World War I and II that a nation's salvation lies in its reputation,
and a nation's reputation depends upon truthful, unbiased information -
not deliberate misinformation and misrepresentation! The same principle
is true for the Islamic nations.
- Let us now look upon the face of the enemy - your enemy
and ours - who is responsible for endangering world peace, international
understanding and, in consequence, your lives and ours.
- THE INTERNATIONAL ZIONISTS
- The leadership of the West is heavily influenced and
often dominated by a small minority of this alien political persuasion.
Political and religious Zionism plays a disproportionately large role in
the West because of the Zionists' domination of the mass media of information,
education and entertainment, the banking system, the secret societies and
a globalist One World conspiracy by an out-of-touch financial and political,
societal oligarchy of accumulated wealth and power.
- Worse yet, these Zionist elements are aided and abetted
by millions of brainwashed Christians and non-Christians who suffer from
the previously mentioned media-created distortions about the Islamic world
and its peoples, whom they believe mistakenly to be "bad", based
on the stereotypical propaganda image.
- Just as mistakenly, the brainwashed Christians of the
West have been led to believe that some of these frequently quite vicious,
greedy and often militant people who call themselves "Jews" are
"good" - simply because the Christian Bible mentions "Jews"
as "God's Chosen People". Ever since the beginning of World War
II, the Zionists and their dupes and hirelings have used this self-serving
myth as a tool for the deception of the Western Christian masses.
- I as a German should know, for in Germany a person who
questions any aspect of the Zionist version of history as expressed in
the so-called "Holocaust" faces prison for up to five years!
In Germany alone, over 5,800 people have been prosecuted and fined in the
last few years. Hundreds have been jailed for expressing doubt about what
even Jewish Professor Norman correctly refers to as "this Zionist
version of the history of World War II"!
- We see the results of this massive deceit - that is,
that Zionist interests are identical to Western interests - in the many
publications and pronouncements of organizations such as the "Councils
of Christians and Jews", so-called "Brotherhood Weeks",
"Interfaith Services", conventions, ecumenical workshops, and
the like. Western Christians have become circumcised mentally by this incessant
yet false propaganda!
- Many Western people, and unfortunately even leaders of
governments, have come to falsely identify "Jewish" - that is,
frequently Zionist - interests with their own country's interests, which
is exactly like a hypnotized person mistaking a deadly poison for nourishing
food. We have even heard the famous singer and media personality, Pat Boone,
a Christian, say that there are really only three kinds of Judaism: Orthodox,
Reformed, and Christian - saying that Christianity is just another form
- THE INTERNATIONAL SECRET SOCIETIES
- Unknown to most people of the Islamic world is the tremendous
power and influence exercised in the Western world by some branches of
a politicized Freemasonry and all its cover organizations, such as the
Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, etc. Many important Western decision makers, politicians,
economists, and military officers are either members of a secret society
or are influenced and often dominated by such members. Any educated Muslim
can recognize immediately the identity of Freemasonry with that of its
secretive organizational predecessors in Arabic history. This is the same
globalist satanic structure which we detect in some lodges of Freemasonry,
such as the PII Lodge involved in the Calvi Affair in Italy in the early
seventies - secrecy, duplicity, the exercise of undue influence, infiltration,
corruption of officials and, where necessary, it seems, even assassination.
That most Freemasons are often unaware of the directors and real directions
of their secret organization or brotherhood does not, it seems, preclude
their blind, uncritical support of this organization and their obedience
to its directives.
- The orientation and many of the rituals, emblems and
graphic images of these secret societies of the West came directly from
the Kabbala of the Babylonian Talmud. Their content is of allegedly ancient
Egyptian-Jewish origin; many of their goals today are serving Jewish ends;
and many of their lodge members and high-ranking Masons have been, and
are, Jewish. This explains the consistent support of Freemasonry for the
goals and machinations of International Zionism in its many forms. It also
explains the politically involved Freemasons' consistent role in directing
the advance of world crime, corruption, vice, poverty, war, revolution,
collapse and chaos. All this is frequently directed from their high-ranking
positions in the Western political, economic and, unfortunately, law enforcement
and military establishments.
- On behalf of the Zionists, the Gentile members of these
secret societies have spread these plagues not only in the West, but throughout
the entire world in which Western influence today has become all-pervasive.
Many members, who become aware of their organizations' role in causing
world suffering, leave disenchanted. Others obviously rationalize these
horrors as mere desirable "change" and as necessary steps in
the creation of a utopian world government, thus helping to fulfill their
Zionist masters' messianic dreams.
- President John F. Kennedy stated before his assassination
that there were 17 million members of various quasi-Freemasonic secret
societies in the U.S. alone. The most famous one of recent times is George
Bush, who was a member of "Skulls and Bones" - some weird occult
outfit. Most U.S. Presidents have been members of such secret societies
- two notable exceptions being John F. Kennedy, who was removed from office
by assassination, and, apparently, the non-Mason Nixon, who was replaced
by 33rd degree Freemason, Gerald Ford.
- In one's travels through America and other "Anglo-Saxon"
countries, one frequently notices that the local Freemasonic temple is
usually in close proximity to the seat of federal, state or local government
- usually within easy walking distance of the various state capitals. So
deeply accustomed are Westerners to the acceptance of these secret societies
in their midst that they have no misgivings in electing or appointing known
Freemasons to public office, even clearly though it will not always be
in the public interest how these public officials act. Their acts will,
of necessity, sometimes be in the interest of their secret society - otherwise,
why become a member? And why all the secrecy - the secret passwords, the
secret handshakes etc., which in itself makes the institution anti-democratic
in that it gives its members a secret edge or "in"?
- One has a right to suspect that such public officials'
public policies will not be made in the broad, open, well-lit public offices,
but often in the narrow, smoke-filled confines of secret conclaves in the
company of their equally secret "lodge brothers". No wonder U.S.
policy always differs in practice from the public pre-election promises
made by many of these hypocrites!
- Even a child could readily perceive the simple and obvious
truth: no organization which claims to do only good, as claim the various
Freemasonic organizations, need be secret. But brainwashed children become
brainwashed adults, and the thorough Zionist brainwashing has made the
Western majority blind to the enemy of Western traditions that works in
their very midst. America as a nation is thoroughly brainwashed. But Americans
are slowly waking up, thanks to the as yet uncensored information previously
suppressed, but now ever more widely available - on the Internet!
- But if many Westerners are blind to the dangers of secret
societies, there is no need for the Islamic peoples to be equally blind!
- THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS
- These men are the focal point for the dark forces arrayed
against all mankind, for their control of the world's wealth directs and
determines largely what is done or not done in the real world of commerce,
industry and government, or whether what is done is for the greater public
good or will produce evil for those who engage in evil schemes.
- While the world bankers, it seems, act in perfect harmony
with the Talmud, they act in perfect defiance of the Koran, for their wealth
is based on the evil and sin of usury and thereby their wealth is acquired
without honest, productive work. Judging from the state of the world today
and the fruits of the bankers' policies, there can be no doubt about what
these evil men are doing with the vast wealth we in America and Germany
and the Arab nations have put at their disposal!
- It is rarely, in the end, to our benefit. More often
than not, it has led to hardships, wars, and the destruction of morals
and ethics in our societies.
- The Islamic nations are vulnerable to blackmail by the
bankers of the world who can devalue the currencies of the Arab countries
and thus, with the stroke of a pen, debauch their money derived from oil
earnings. They can bribe and browbeat Western governments into freezing
or seizing Islamic assets - as has happened to Iran, Iraq, and Libya, just
to name a few.
- But the foremost evil concocted and directed by the International
Bankers was, and to some degree still is, International Communism!
- INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM
- It is fashionable to say that "Communism is dead!"
Nothing could be farther from the truth! Communism is not dead in the heads
of tens of millions of brainwashed individual intellectuals, teachers,
professors, influential individuals in the media and in education, both
in the East and West. Communism has merely been repackaged and recycled
- Red China is still Communist with its 1 billion people. Although the
"threat of Communism" has been removed from Western thinking,
the fear of Communism is deep. That's why it is still being used to smear
the image of some of the Arab countries.
- We of the West are constantly exposed to Zionist propaganda
which claims that most Islamic peoples are pro-Communist, and that "little
Israel" is our only "democratic", anti-Communist ally and
bastion in the Middle East. This is an outright deception. The Laws of
Islam forbid atheism!
- Much is made by Zionist propagandists of the Islamic
world's supposed connections with the former Soviet Union, and unfortunately
all too little is known about the Islamic people's constant antagonism
and often heroic resistance against the dark forces of atheistic, Soviet-style
Communism. Few Westerners are aware of the contradictions in terms of a
so-called "Islamic-Communist Revolution" - for that would be
as absurd as to believe in "idealistic materialism" or "divine
- Even though "official Communism" is now supposedly
dead, Communists of greater or lesser degrees still permeate the entire
Western political, economic, industrial, mass media, and educational establishments.
So "Red" have many Western government policies become that their
own people no longer discern them as objectives of a Communist world domination
by convinced Marxists who pursue their goals as ever. Its ways and means
still are class struggle and revolution - by more clever means! That is
the reason why we see crippling, politically motivated, recurring waves
of strikes, inflation, deflation, and more strikes, combined with the systematic
de-capitalization of the Western industrial economies.
- Communism has always fed off and continues to feed off
crisis situations - therefore, its agents of every hue from pallid pink
to flaming red act to create as many crises as possible within the economic,
cultural and social fabric of the West - in order to divide, conquer and
yet rule the world. Their tactics have changed - not their goals! There
has only been a change in the tactical applications.
- The degree to which the West has been infiltrated and
dominated and largely destroyed by Communists and their sympathizers for
about 100 years is often unknown even to Westerners and most definitely
to non-Westerners alike. What remains of the West is the glittering facade
of an internally dilapidated edifice which has been so weakened and robbed
of spirit by the many internal parasites and traitors, who have worked
as diligently as termites, that the entire structure of the West is threatened
with a Soviet Union-like collapse or implosion.
- It has happened before to great nations. If it could
happen to ancient Egypt, Greece, Persia and Rome, it certainly can also
happen to the West, which each day more resembles these ancient civilizations
in its abundance of material possessions and in its poverty of spirit,
courage, and wisdom - especially in its will to defend itself in order
- What can be done to arrest and, finally, to reverse this
dangerous decline? How and when can we begin to save ourselves from the
international destroyers and enslavers of mankind?
- SALVATION MUST COME THROUGH INFORMATION: OUR PROPOSAL
FOR TODAY - TOMORROW MAY BE TOO LATE!
- The ancient writings of many peoples have noted the fundamental
importance of information in statements such as: "The Truth Shall
Make You Free" and "Our people are destroyed for lack of knowledge".
Resolute human action has always depended upon sound, solid information,
and the best way of bringing truthful information to the people who need
it is via the mass media of the press, radio, television, educational material,
motion pictures, mainstream novels - and now the globe-girdling Internet!
- The Islamic world has the financial means to publish,
broadcast or otherwise disseminate the historical, factual data leading
to the truth - which alone can halt the Zionist drive to new wars and more
chaos - but because this information would come from and by means of "foreign
sources", it would be subject to disbelief, censorship, interception,
jamming and/or outright confiscation. Open or outright Arab ownership,
like Iranian- or Syrian-owned newspapers or TV stations of any major Western
newspaper, magazine, radio or TV station would also face swift government
sanctions, including censorship and seizure.
- A practical alternative would be the establishment of
independently owned and operating channels of communication and information
within the countries of the West, staffed by more fair-minded native Westerners.
There are still many independent, well-informed, courageous and talented
people with organizational ability here in the West. Even at this late
hour, not all Western men of worth, intelligence and courage have sold
themselves into Zionist control or mental slavery. Many are alert and wise
to what has happened to Western society - and why.
- Many more are waking up daily! Many millions are now
ready to listen.
- There are at this moment already in existence organizations
which, if properly funded, could become the nucleus of an independent,
worldwide information network capable of countering the now virtually unopposed
Zionist disinformation and hate propaganda networks. One such example is
the Zundelsite, a United States based website that has exposed the so-called
"Holocaust" as an extortion tool used systematically against
the two most ardent supporters of Israel - Germany and the United States.
- No Internet website has been so attacked by German and
Canadian government and private censorship forces as has the Zundelsite.
This California-based website has, so far, withstood all attacks because
it operates under the umbrella protection of the First Amendment to the
United States Constitution guaranteeing freedom of speech, and it is flush
with information supplied by independent Western thinkers who call the
Zionists' bluff and the so-called "Holocaust" the "Hoax
of the Century" that yields Israel the money, power and excuse to
occupy the Palestinians and to intimidate its neighbors such as Syria,
Lebanon, Iran and other Arab nations. Since its brief existence, more than
2.5 million Holocaust-related documents have been accessed by people the
- Take the Holocaust away, and you will have severed the
financial water well that feeds an evil oligarchy and repressive system!
- That is what we CAN do with carefully packaged and tailored
information. We have already done some of this work in a limited fashion,
but we lack the money to do so much more. The Nations of Islam are entitled
to an adequate informational defense. Many people of the West are growing
wary and weary of Zionists and their criminal claims and aims.
- If the necessary funds were available to us and to our
organization, we could begin such a public truth-in-history information
- Please consider seriously what we are proposing:
- * For the cost of one airplane, a whole nation could
be informed about the true aims of one or more Islamic countries.
- * For the cost of one tank, a public information film
could be produced and shown, over and over again, on Satellite television
covering all of North America, to audiences eager to be informed.
- * For the cost of a missile, a book could be published
and sent free of charge to all the news media representatives of the West
- . * For the cost of one artillery shell, a well-trained
speaker could present the Islamic cause at a university symposium or international
- * For the cost of a few rifles, 500 information-packed
video or audio tape cassettes could be sent to radio stations around the
- * For the cost of one rifle bullet, stamps could be bought
for 10 letters bearing the message of inter-ethnic harmony through truth
and understanding to the remotest corners of the world.
- Are expensive and rapidly obsolescent military weapons
preferable to information about the harmful nature of the "Holocaust"
- information which can bring better understanding and thus more balanced
policies which will achieve lasting peace? Are weapons purchases preferable
to the word of God? Are we just going to continue to enrich the capitalist
and Zionist warmongers of East and West by continuing to buy their killing
machines so as to destroy ourselves all the more efficiently? The Gulf
War should have been a wake-up call for us all - East and West, North and
South! First World, Second World, or Third World!
- Surely, none of us want this! Not Muslims, not Westerners!
- There is a better way - the way of truthful information.
- Roger Garaudy, the French Revisionist and convert to
Islam has already taken the Arab countries by storm. And why? It's very
simple: The key is in the exposure of the so-called Holocaust or alleged
genocide of the Jews. This evil hoax has made two of the richest Western
nations mentally subservient to the Zionists, helped them spread their
misinformation, and is giving them practically unlimited financial means
for their repressive and destructive policies and ends.
- We are ready to help you today. Do you understand us?
If yes, are you ready to help us? Tomorrow may be too late for both of
- Ernst Zundel
