David Shentow was Ottawa’s best known Holocaust survivor and … – Ottawa Citizen

When he was liberated from Dachau concentration camp on April 29, 1945 his 20th birthday David Shentow weighed just 76 pounds, but carried more memories than most men could bear.

He had survived the Nazi occupation of Belgium, a forced-labour camp, the Auschwitz concentration camp, the Warsaw Ghetto, a death march and Dachau.

He went home to Antwerp, Belgium, in the hopes of reuniting with relatives: Although he had heard his mother, father and two sisters had perished in Nazi death camps, he thought some of his aunts, uncles and cousins might come back to the Jewish Community Centre.

The lonely weeks that followed were the most painful of his life.

I realized Im the only one, he once told the Citizen. Out of 17 people, Im the only one who came back.

Shentow would start a new life in Canada, and go on to become one of Ottawas best known Holocaust survivors and educators. For three decades, he was a tireless witness to history, suffering his memories in classrooms, auditoriums and museums so that others could understand the truth of the Final Solution the Nazi policy that systematically killed almost two out of every three European Jews by 1945.

When I talk about it, he explained, I always feel Im not the only witness anymore. All these people who hear me, they are witnesses now.

David Shentow died Monday in a Toronto nursing home after a lengthy illness. He was 92.

My father was the most honourable man I have ever known, said his daughter, Rene Shentow, 66, of Toronto. He made it his mission to tell the truth.

Debbie Weiss, chair of the Holocaust Committee for the Jewish Federation of Ottawa, said Shentow was a powerful witness because his testimony was so forthright, clear and honest. He also had a vulnerability, she said, that set him apart from other Holocaust survivors, many of whom were toughened by the horrors they experienced.

David was different: He was a gentle soul, said Weiss. He exposed a vulnerability that most do not have, and I believe it is what touched so many.

Carleton University professor Deidre Butler, director of The Max and Tessie Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies, called Shentow profoundly courageous. He spoke with warmth and seriousness and a naked honesty about what he had been through and you could see his pain, she said. He did it without hatred and with a real conviction that it honoured the victims, and that it worked against Holocaust denial.

Shentow was born David Krzetowski in Warsaw, Poland in 1925. (He would change his name to Shentow upon arriving in Canada.) His family moved to Belgium while he was still an infant to escape the violent tides of Polish anti-Semitism.His father, Moishe, prospered as a tailor and the family put down roots in Antwerp.

On May 10, 1940, when the Germans launched co-ordinated attacks on Belgium, Holland and France, he packed his young family into a car and fled toward the French border, but the Nazis got there first. The family was forced to return to Antwerp.

In occupied Belgium, the Gestapo forced Jews to surrender their radios and bicycles, then decreed they could no longer attend school, go to the theatre or sit on park benches. They were made to wear the Star of David.

In August 1942, Shentow and his father were sent to a forced labour camp near Dieppe, France to build German fortifications. He was separated from his father, and months later, was loaded onto a train that took him across occupied Europe to Auschwitz, Poland, where he became prisoner 72585, a number tattooed on his left forearm.

In Auschwitz, Shentow would remember, the prisoners slept three to a bunk; their 12-hour workday began at 6 a.m.; they were fed once a day: two slices of bread, a thin soup and coffee. They worked through the winter in striped cotton pyjamas, a cap and wooden clogs.

I didnt know if I would freeze to death or starve to death, he once said.

Shentow credited a friendly Polish prisoner with saving his life by arranging a job for him inside the camp tailor shop.

In 1943, he was one of 4,000 prisoners sent to level what remained of Warsaws Jewish Ghetto, which had been razed by the Nazis after a spring uprising. In August 1944, as the Russian army advanced toward Warsaw, the prisoners were marched 100 kilometres west to Kutno, Poland, and crammed onto cattle cars bound for Dachau.

After the war, with no relatives left in Belgium, Shentow emigrated to Canada. He arrived in March 1949 and went to work in a womenswear shop in Toronto. There, he met a young woman visiting from Ottawa, Rose Feldberg, and the two quickly became inseparable.

Shentow moved to Ottawa and they married in February 1950. Shentow worked at Hudsons Bay department store for 28 years, and together with Rose, they raised two daughters, Rene and Lorie.

He was a doting father who kept his family close. He was funny and he always knew what to say to make me feel better, said Rene.

For many years, Shentow didnt talk about the Holocaust, not even to his children. He only began to recount his ordeal after Ernst Zundel and other Holocaust deniers began to make headlines in the 1980s.

My father was such a modest, understated kind of man, it was painful for him to talk about his experiences, but he felt it was important, said Rene.

Shentow returned four times to Auschwitz to take part in the March of the Living, a Holocaust education program, and appeared in several documentary films. He retold his story to students in Belgium, Israel and across Canada, and always asked that his audience not applaud. Im not an entertainer, he would admonish. I am a witness.

His health declined during the final three years of his life, and he moved to Toronto earlier this year so that his family could better care for him. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Rose, their two children, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Wetbacks in Reverse? Ernst Zundel banned forever from Land …

By Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel on April 29, 2017

“Give us your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”

[ Note: After 14 years of legal wrangling at the cost of millions of dollars to both sides, the US government has ruled on discretionary grounds by an unelected bureaucrat named Ron Rosenberg, Chief, Administrative Appeals Office of the US Department of Homeland Security, that Ernst Zndel is banned from joining his family in the US.

According to this ruling, a dissident contesting a disputed historical claim such as the Auschwitz gassing is now a criminal of moral turpitude. Can it get any more Kafkaesque?

More will be said about this latest Zundel development at a later time. For now, here is the latest installment of the ever-expanding Global Zundel-Saga Ingrid Zundel ]

*

Ernst Zndel, in his own words:

Ernst and Ingrid Zundel: Wetbacks in Reverse?

Within hours of my illegal arrest in February 2003, fourteen years ago, I had been given an expulsion order with stiff penalties, should I dare to set foot in America ever again in the future. Should I be so brazen as to attempt a re-entry and be caught, I was to be arrested forthwith, detained, tried, and found guilty and put in prison to face a 20-year sentence as an illegal re-offender.

Not only that, I risked a $250,000 fine for being such a fire-breathing dissident insisting on free speech on a forbidden topic all this still in handcuffs, without being allowed to at least see an immigration judge to explain that I was not an illegal I had been in the immigration pipeline to be admitted to legal residence as a relative to an American citizen wife.

The day that Ernst Zundel was released from his 7-year prison term, supporters greeted him (file photo)

I had been given a social security number, a health check, two FBI checks that cleared me of any wrong-doing, inoculations, a work permit, a travel permit the works! Not that any of this mattered at this point in the more than decades-long legal nightmare that followed. I was convicted despite all airtight evidence that I was not a visa overstay as had been falsely claimed.

Once I had served my time of seven years in six prisons in three countries on two continents for having asked Did Six Million Really Die and after having successfully passed my probation hurdle of an additional three years I was left, more or less, to my own devices.

My passport had been given back to me. It allowed me to travel to Russia, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Switzerland and elsewhere, visiting friends and loyal supporters, always wondering when the next trap would fall shut on me what other judicial injustice was waiting.

I also tried to see Ingrid at least twice a year, always in some dishevelled Third World country. When traveling to Belize, the Dominican Republic, Mexico etc. to meet Ingrid who cannot travel to Europe because we know for certain there were at least two Interpol arrest warrants out for her as well because of her Zundelsite/Internet work I usually had to overfly Canada and the USA.

On this latest trip on March 15, as I wistfully looked down on the plane at the outboard display, crossing Greenland, Island, Quebec, New York State and moseying along the Eastern seaboard and then inland, almost reaching Tennessee I wondered what would happen to me if the plane was, in fact, forced to make an emergency landing in the United States or Canada.

There was this possibility. This threat was looming against me in the background. What if something happened mechanically to the plane and I was forced to step onto the so-called free-est country in the world and be re-arrested?

Thus, when I boarded the Condor flight on the 15th of March to Cancun where Ingrid was waiting for me, I was keenly aware that I was entering a danger zone. This was a daylight flight unlike other Condor flights I had been on where I could at least sleep through the night. These long, non-stop international flights are hard on my body and psyche. By the time yet another new Zndel drama unfolded, I hadnt slept for almost 30 hours.

As I looked out of the airplane window, I saw a shadowy, bluish fog of sorts that seemed to come out of a small crack of one of these jumbo-jet wings that kept us afloat. I watched it for a while, unease on my mind. It didnt go away it just curled into itself and dissolved.

Suddenly, there was a crackled message from the Captain in the cockpit announcing that we were experiencing difficulty with the planes fuel gauges, which seemed to be malfunctioning. This meant, the Captain informed us in a terse voice, that we would have to make an unscheduled emergency landing at the nearest US airport.

Here was what I had always feared!

This nearest airport turned out to be an airstrip in St. Louis, MO, not exactly a home base for large passenger jets. As we descended, I could see the tarmac, old and run-down, with grass growing out of its crevices! With white knuckles, we all held onto our seats. After one of the roughest landings I have ever experienced, we rolled to a stop and were asked to deplane, using a rickety ladder, flanked by several dozen US firefighters in full gear all of them huge, nice, friendly men next to their flashing fire trucks. Clearly we had landed in the backwoods somewhere of the USA and here I was, being asked to step down onto the hallowed soil of the free-est country in the world risking yet another 20 years in gaol!

I knew that the Captain had no choice but to alert US Homeland Security and the border police of my illegal entry status. I rang for the flight attendant to let her know about my predicament that my very presence in the US might cause an international incident, as they like to say in legalese. She looked at me, incredulous. Who was that placid senior citizen who looked as normal and as harmless as can be?

She scurried to inform the folks in the cockpit.

Next, the Captain came to see me, wanting to know what, exactly, I had done. I told him I was being punished for spreading historical truth I had published a booklet with a politically incorrect question mark the Global Noisy Lobby didnt like. He was shaking his head, looking doubtful. He, too, was left speechless, not knowing what next to do with this senior citizen passenger, almost 80 years of age, who sat there, smiling blithely, expecting to be handcuffed so as not to threaten the almighty USA!

I was the last to deplane. I was flanked by two huge black border guards, armed to the teeth. Off we marched, with me giving the thumbs-up sign to some 250+ co-passengers who stepped aside to let us through, bewildered and aghast. Everybody stared at me as though I had come from the moon.

This emergency landing clearly overwhelmed the airport personnel, and we had to wait for hours in a rundown, seedy reception area out of the 1950s. The two guards stayed by my side as though glued to my hips, and there was enough time to have a little friendly chat in the meantime. This was not the first time that I had entertained my captors with my woes as well as some hilarious highlights of my intrepid dissident past and by the time it was my turn to have my passport checked, the three of us had now become fast friends.

Next, we were told US authorities were going to admit us legally into the US as visitors! Fat chance for me, I thought! All the while, I feared, I might be sent back to the Vaterland. I crossed my fingers and toes in hopes that would not happen. But luck was on my side. I, too, was bureaucratically paroled into Missouri, USA a minor miracle!

At first it looked like the fuel line problem could be easily repaired, and that we could fly on to Cancun. However, the mechanical problems were too difficult for the local mechanics to fix, and it was decided to order a replacement plane from Germany. That would take another 12 13 hours with me getting ever more groggy from lack of sleep, lack of food and drink, and a simmering, low-level anxiety that sat in the pit of my heart.

Meanwhile, our passports were scanned; finger prints and iris scans were made of each passenger; and of course, thanks to Internet bio information about me that had been surreptitiously studied by the American authorities as well as several passengers, I took on ever more the trappings of an heroic global dissident celebrity.

I began to be treated not just with curiosity but with an open, smiling reverence by black and white alike. I will always remember a few of them with great fondness for instance, a tall, handsome Mexican-American veteran, with decades of experience in the US military, as well as a picture-book tall, blue-eyed Aryan from the Midwest, coming from a family of nine children.

All of them were super-correct in their treatment of me very helpful and accommodating. I told them that I felt homesick for my beloved little art gallery in the Tennessee Mountains and being so near to where Ingrid and I had our place.

Ernst at home in Tennessee

Those uniformed, battle-hardened men seemed visibly moved. There sat a real live, officially criminalized White Supremacist-Holocaust-denying-Hate-monger among otherwise perfectly normal people, looking and talking exactly like them! A criminal of moral turpitude is how the US government documents described me!

Once again, I was the last one to be checked before having been granted parole, and promptly taken to a room for secondary screening. This procedure took several more hours of interviews by security people, and in the end, I was patted down and thoroughly searched, all my belongings, my money, my address book seized and I was taken to a holding cell, windowless, brightly illuminated the kind that I had already experienced in my decades-long travails while battling one of the worlds most vicious political lobbies.

The personnel who checked me into this cell seemed ashamed of what they were ordered to do and fell all over themselves letting me know that they did not approve of this travesty and were simply following Homeland Security orders.

I was given some small pillows, two bright yellow FEMA blankets to avoid hypothermia, and my two black, uniformed police or border guards, still armed to the teeth, told me that this was going to be my home until the replacement plane from Germany had arrived.

Thank you to some of the dedicated people who protect our country (file photo)

Soon additional, ever-so-friendly American guards came with three bottles of water, some potato chips and a hearty ham sandwich. No Muslim terrorist, this one, expecting special dietary favors!

It was long after midnight. I slept a little, in spite of the bright lights. There was a video camera on the ceiling, the usual surveillance equipment.

The hours passed slowly. After a while, two officers came to see me for an update. They told me that the plane from Germany was experiencing strong headwinds and would again be several hours later than expected.

The night shift changed to the day shift, and familiar faces officers I had talked with before in the waiting room came to take over. Obviously, they too had checked up on me on the Net. They brought me a tooth brush and toothpaste, and a little later, to my utter surprise, a piping hot pizza and a delicious California salad, along with more water and even a Coca Cola crowning this hatemonger prison fare feast with a piece of delicious blueberry pie.

To my relief, there was no attempt to send me back to Germany and once the plane arrived, we were all processed one more time and allowed to board the replacement Condor plane. It was about 8:30 pm, March 16, by the time we took off to Cancun!

I did not have a telephone number for Ingrid, since no phone had been as yet installed in our little home in Mexico. I cleared the Mexican customs, got all the proper stamps, took an airport taxi and arrived at the door of my very relieved American citizen lady who greeted me with Am I happy to see you!

We had lots to tell each other long after midnight wrapped in two bright yellow FEMA blankets I had asked to have as souvenirs, which the guards had allowed me to keep.

Horst Mahler, German neo-Nazi, arrested in Hungary – Religious Reader (press release) (blog)

The arrest of an 81-year-old former left-wing terrorist who turned to neo-Nazism and received a 10-year prison sentence for Holocaust denial has rallied neo-Nazis as far as Luxembourg.

German media reported that the neo-Nazi extremist Horst Mahler had applied for political asylum in Hungary where Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who praises the authoritarian models of Russia and China, is cracking down on political opponents, the judiciary, refugees, the press, and universities.

In 2009, a German court sentenced Mr Mahler to 10 years in prison, for racial offences and Holocaust denial. Due to ill-health, he left prison in 2015, but rather than face news charges accumulated in prison, he went on the run.

Hungarian police confirmed his arrest on May 15. Officials informed the New York Times, that application from Mr Mahler on asylum grounds would be rejected due to his German citizenship.

Mahlers switch in political extremes makes him an unusual and notorious figure in Germany. Yet, a consistent for Mr Mahler was his antisemitism. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2007, he said that others in the terrorist group he helped found, the Red Army Faction (RAF), agreed with his view that Jewish people were the devil. He went on to clarify that this form of antisemitism was cloaked in opposition to American imperialism. Mahlers father adored Hitler, having killed himself in 1949 when Horst was thirteen.

The political scientist, Jan Rathje, who specialises in tracking far-right movements, told Deutsche Welle: Already in the RAF there were anti-Semitic connotations, and Mr Mahler had simply followed this consistent path towards the far-right.

In the political unrest of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Mr Mahler gave legal counsel to prominent leftists including Andreas Baader and Gudrun Ensslin, who would later join him in the creation of the RAF. Horst involved himself in several bank robberies and a plot to break Baader out of prison.

In 1973, he was sentenced to fourteen years in prison but gained early release in 1980 after making several public statements condemning terrorism and the RAF. Years earlier, authorities noted a change in Horsts ideology, declaring in 1977 that he was being internally freed from the dogmatic revolutionary theory of Marxism-Leninism. During the 1990s, Horst grew more prominent in the extreme-right scene, later joining the extreme far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) in 2000.

Mr Mahler used his legal background to defend the NPD in a constitutional battle with the German government who wanted the party banned. This collapsed in 2003, as it emerged that key witnesses were government-paid informants. In that same year, a court in Mainz fined Mr Mahler several thousand euros for justifying the 9/11 terror attacks. He would also leave the NPD citing the partys desire to enter parliament, a position that was antithetical to his Reichsbrger stance, a loose movement that refuses to recognise the Federal Republic.

A fusion of antisemitism, xenophobia, and anti-American conspiracies helped the NPD almost double its membership to 6,500 between 1996 and 2000, their message resonated with unemployed youth in eastern Germany. Experts pointed to the potent danger of Mahlers fusion of antisemitism and anti-imperialist nationalism.

East Germany is still a fertile political ground for the NPD, with 264 of its 338 local council seats found in the region. The party did not make any progress in regional assemblies, as it did not reach the election threshold last September.

A study by the Gttingen Institute for Democracy Studies found that old cultural attitudes carried over from the communist-era explain the virulent levels of xenophobia in east Germany. In short, the report documents how a selective cultural memory fuses and a failure to reconcile Nazi-era antisemitism helps fuel the scapegoating of foreigners for social and economic woes. This closed and ethnically homogenised society increases their vulnerability to the narratives of populists and the far-right. The study was commissioned following a rise in extreme right-wing violence in 2015.

In January 2017, Germanys constitutional court rejected another bid to have the NPD banned, citing its lack of threat to German democracy. A move that drew broad criticism.

In 2005, Horst was dismissed from the legal team of notorious Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, for having a racist conviction. Two years later, Zundel was found guilty of 14 counts of incitement to racial hatred and given a five-year prison sentence, the largest prison term available under German law for Holocaust denial.

An All-Purpose Hate Group – pride source.com

An All-Purpose Hate Group

BY VICTOR LIEBERMAN Originally printed 5/5/2017 (Issue 2518 – Between The Lines News)

Everyone knows that Donald Trump’s election has given new life to racist and homophobic groups. But too few Ann Arborites know that one of the most notorious of such groups is active in our own city – yes, in Ann Arbor, famous for its liberalism.

The group in question, Deir Yassin Remembered, was listed in April 2016 by one of America’s leading civil rights organizations on a national register of Active Hate Groups.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, based in Montgomery, Alabama, publishes an annual list of American “hate groups” that malign people on the basis of race, sexual orientation, or religion. The SPLC first became famous for bankrupting and destroying in court the United Klans of America, whose members had lynched an African-American teenager and bombed an African-American church, killing four little girls.

This year for the first time Ann Arbor’s own Deir Yassin Remembered made the SPLC list. Why? What evidence supports this characterization? Whom do they target?

Although no doubt the beliefs of individual supporters vary, the leaders of DYR are tied to activists who vilify Jews in particular, but also gays, lesbians, and black people. These, of course, were the classic targets of the Nazis, and the SPLC’s Senior Fellow Mark Potok – after a year’s research – has explicitly described DYR as defenders of Hitler’s “Germany and National Socialism,” that is to say, Nazism.

Consider these all-purpose, equal opportunity obsessions:

Hatred of Jews

DYR leaders campaigned for the release from prison and the rehabilitation of Ernst Zundel, an ani-Semite jailed in his native Germany for “inciting racial hatred.”

During his trial, Zundel’s lawyer signed court motions with the words “Heil Hitler.” Zundel co-authored a book “The Hitler We Loved and Why,” published by White Power Publications, which explained “It was never Hitler’s Germany. It shall always be Germany’s Hitler….Today, [Hitler’s] spirit soars beyond the shores of the White Man’s home in Europe. Wherever we are, he is with us. WE LOVE YOU, ADOLF HITLER.”

To express their admiration for Zundel, Henry Herskovitz, who is a member of the Board of Advisors and Directors of DYR, together with Daniel McGowan, Executive Director of DYR, visited Zundel in Mannheim Prison in Germany. In 2014, Herskovitz also posted a picture of himself greeting Holocaust survivors at a memorial ceremony organized for their murdered families with a sign reading “Free Ernst Zundel.”

Herskovitz appears at the Ann Arbor City Council to explain why the Holocaust is a fraud. He, McGowan, and another DYR Director Paul Eisen founded an organization “Jews for Justice for Germans,” which calls for an end to German reparations to Jews, Jewish reparations to Germany to atone for the suffering inflicted on that country by lying about the Holocaust, and the repeal of all Holocaust denial laws. Unsurprisingly, Holocaust denial is a recurrent, indeed central, theme on the DYR website, and the SPLC has explicitly identified DYR as Holocaust deniers.

Every Saturday for 13 years DYR has picketed a synagogue in Ann Arbor. In person outside the synagogue and on their website, DYR activists promote an array of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories: Jews built gas ovens in the death camps after World War Two to frame the Germans. Jews created and now control ISIS. Jews destroyed the Twin Trade Towers in New York City on 9/11.

Jews have organized all the chief terrorist attacks in Europe and America. According to a report in the Washtenaw Jewish News, while standing outside Beth Israel in 2012 a leader of the weekly picket summarized his views in these exact words: “I hate Jews. Whatever happened to them in World War II, they brought on themselves. They deserved everything they got.”

Hatred of Gays

In Nazi ideology, anti-Semitism was tied to hatred of gays. In a recent letter to the Washtenaw Jewish News, Herskovitz identified Larry Brayboy of Ann Arbor as “a close friend” of the synagogue picketers and proposed a debate between Brayboy and a local Jew so that Brayboy could “prove” there was no such event as the Holocaust. Who is Brayboy? He is a homophobe who regularly sends unsolicited mass e-mails to prominent figures in Michigan and the US with such lovely messages as that of April 14, 2017: “Exposing Bernie Sanders Neocon Dick Sucking Jew Faggot.”

DYR Director Paul Eisen appeared on the radio show of David Duke, the Louisiana anti-Semite, white supremacist, and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Said Eisen to Duke on the air, “I never heard you, David, say anything that I didn’t think was true.” One can only conclude that Eisen accepts Duke’s oft-stated view, expressed for example on DavidDuke.com on Aug. 22, 2013, that Jews have masterminded the campaign to undermine Western morality by promoting homosexuality in the courts, forcing homosexuals into the Boy Scouts, spreading pornography, and above all, by legalizing gay marriage.

Duke described Tel Aviv as “one of the world’s most gay-friendly cities.” He concluded his on-line posting with twelve pictures of what he called “particularly repulsive specimens” of Jewish gays and lesbians.

Since DYR denies that the Holocaust occurred, they have no reason to accept that gays were victims of the Holocaust. The truth is that 100,000 gay men were arrested in Nazi Germany, an unknown number were castrated to “cure their sickness,” and up to 15,000 were sent to concentration camps, where a great many were murdered.

Hatred of Blacks

David Duke, whose worldview, we just saw, DYR Director Paul Eisen endorsed, is arguably American’s best known white supremacist. Among the former KKK Imperial Wizard’s more notable quotes is the following comment to The Sun newspaper of Wichita, Kansas: “White people don’t need a law against rape, but if you fill this room up with your normal black bucks, you would, because niggers are basically primitive animals.”

And consider these sweet recent e-mail postings by Larry Brayboy, whom Henry Herskovitz identified as the “close friend” of synagogue picketers and the man whom DYR wants to represent its views in public debate.

Here is how Brayboy describes his political foes:

“Dem Howard Dean ANOTHER JEW NIGGER…” (April 11, 2017)

“HEY OBAMA FUCK YOUR DAUGHTERS IN THE ASS YOU SLIMY FUCKING NIGGER WAR CRIMINAL” (April 17, 2017)

“DIRTY FUCKING CRACK WHORE MICHELLE DIRTY FUCKING WAR CRIMINAL FUCKING NIGGER” (April 17, 2017)

“Multiple examples of JEW NIGGER MEDIA FUCKING your Mothers in the Ass” (April 24, 2017)

When asked recently by Michigan Radio-WUOM for his reaction to the SPLC’s listing of DYR as a hate-group, Herskovitz sought to frame the issue as one of free speech. “I feel very fortunate to live in America, where free speech is protected. If I were in Germany or France, I’d be in jail just for speaking my mind. That’s not right to me.”

His response is doubly ironic. First, he uses free speech to defend the policies of Nazi Germany, whose practices were the antithesis of free speech. If you regard liberal values as sacred, you don’t endorse a regime which posed the 20th century’s most fundamental threat to those same values. Second, no one, certainly not the SPLC, has ever questioned DYR’s Fist Amendment rights.

The issue is not free speech, but the purposes to which speech is directed. The SPLC – seconded over the years by Ann Arbor clergy of all faiths, the Ann Arbor Mayor and City council, and the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice – decries efforts by DYR and allied individuals to instill hatred, to malign entire categories of people on the basis of religious, racial, or sexual identity.

DYR’s new slogan, reminiscent of a certain presidential campaign, is “America First. Not Israel.” It’s hard to imagine a group more hostile than DYR to the principles of inclusion and tolerance basic to American democracy.

Hearing begins into Canada Post ban on controversial newspaper … – CBC.ca

A board of review hearing began Tuesday into a federal order prohibiting a Toronto-area publication that’s been called vile, racist and anti-Semitic from being sent in the mail.

The people who run the newspaper Your Ward News are challenging the order put in place in June, 2016, by the then-federal minister responsible for Canada Post. Police have investigated the publication for hate speech but no charges have been laid.

This type of hearing is rare. The last time a minister banned mail from being distributed by Canada Post was in 1981, against a publishing company owned by Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. It was overturned months later by a review board.

Political consultant Warren Kinsella is one of the peoplecomplainingabout the paper, which is edited and published by James Sears and Laurence St. Germaine.

“There’s the use of the n-word, there’s racism on every page, it is the most disgusting thing.”

Warren Kinsella shows some of the graphic images found in Your Ward News (Lorenda Reddekopp, CBC News)

To prove his point, Kinsellashowedexamples from old editions he photocopied. One image portrays a Jew as a dog; another shows an image of Jesus sexually assaulting a woman.

While the publication is based in the Toronto area, he says this review is important for all Canadians.

“We need to sayCanada Post should not be distributing hatred;Canada Post should not be allowed to distribute racism.”

Multiple groups and people want to be considered interested parties in the reviewprocess, including some Jewish organizations, which say they received complaints about the newspaper, including from Holocaust survivors shocked to see images of a swastika.

Paul Fromm, founder of the Canadian Association for Free Expression and a self-described white nationalist, says Your Ward News should have the right to use Canada Post to distribute the paper. (Lorenda Reddekopp, CBC News)

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUP-W), also requested standing to speak on behalf of employees disgusted by having to deliver the newspaper.

The Canadian Association for Free Expression argues the publication has a right to use the mail system.

“People should have the right to publish what they want,” said the association’s founder Paul Fromm, whorefers to himself as a white nationalist.

Emilie Taman, co-counsel for the two men who produce Your Ward News, argues the government has stripped them of their right to free speech.

“If people don’t want to read it, there’s a garbage can, there’s a blue box, there’s the bottom of the bird cage.”

The lawyers representing Your Ward News arguethe minister’s order has taken away their clients’ freedom of speech, though the publication is still available online and can also be delivered usinga private courier service.

“It opens [a] floodgate, which is a government assessing the speech that it likes and doesn’t like at a lower standard than we would say is appropriate,” said lawyer Emilie Taman.

Any recommendation by this three-person board of review is still at least months away. The board is still sorting out procedural issues. It isn’t expected to hear submissions and lookat evidence related to the ban until late summer at the earliest.

It’s Official: Picketers are Pro-Nazi Hate Group – The Michigan Review

To express their apparent solidarity and admiration for Zundel, in 2006 Henry Herskovitz, a member of the board of advisors and directors of Deir Yassin Remembered, together with Daniel McGowan, executive director of Deir Yassin Remembered, visited Zundel in Mannheim Prison in Germany. Recalled Herskovitz on the Deir Yassin Remembered website with evident emotion, I share with Dan the warm feelings felt at the end of the hour visit. Ernst Zundel did not merely shake hands with me; he held mine in his. Eight yearslater the memory remains strong.

In 2014 Herskovitz, a leader of the Ann Arbor picket, posted a picture of himself greeting Holocaust survivors at a memorial ceremony organized for their murdered families at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Herskovitz welcomed them with a sign reading Free Ernst Zundel.

Herskovitz associate McGowan wrote the foreword to a book of Holocaust denial, Resistance Is Obligatory, by Germar Rudolf, another Holocaust denier sentenced to jail in his native Germany for inciting racial hatred. Rudolf s book was published by the Barnes Review, described by the SPLC as one of the most virulent anti- Semitic organizations around.

On his radio program and website David Duke, the Louisiana anti-Semite, white supremacist, and former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, interviewed another director of Deir Yassin Remembered, the self-described Holocaust denier Paul Eisen. Said Eisen to Duke on the air, I never heard you, David, say anything that I didnt think was true. And Duke s view of Eisen: an incredibly insightful and thoughtful presentation.

Herskovitz appears periodically at the Ann Arbor City Council to explain why the Holocaust is a fraud. He, McGowan, and Eisen founded an organization Jews for Justice for Germans, which calls for an end to German reparations to Jews, Jewish reparations to Germany to atone for the suffering in icted on that country, and the repeal of all Holocaust denial laws. Unsurprisingly, Holocaust denial is a recurrent, indeed central, theme on the Deir Yassin Remembered website. In late 2016 supporters of the organization picketed the Michigan Theater to protest the showing of the lm Denial, which narrates how an English Holocaust denier was humiliated in court.

On the Deir Yassin Remembered website, in sponsored talks in Ann Arbor, and in person outside the synagogue during their weekly picket, activists promote an array of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories: Jews built gas ovens in the death camps after World War Two to frame the Germans. Jews created and now control ISIS. Jews, more speci cally Israelis, directed the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Trade Towers in New York City. Israel also has organized the recent terrorist attacks in Europe and America, including attacks on Jewish institutions. (The lattera were false flag operations designed to throw off suspicion from the real perpetrators.)

The business/personal identification card of a well-known picket leader carried the logo: Challenging Jewish Power since 2003. According to a report in the Washtenaw Jewish News, while standing outside Beth Israel in 2012 that same individual summarized his political views in these exact words: I hate Jews. Whatever happened to them in World War Two they brought on themselves. They deserved everything they got.

These, then, are the materials from which the SPLC constructed its case against Deir Yassin Remembered. In the same Michigan Radio program of February 28 in which Mark Potok of the SPLC was quoted, Herskovitz sought to frame the issue in terms of free speech. I feel very fortunate to live in America, where free speech is protected. If I were in Germany or France, Id be in jail just for speaking my mind. Thats not right to me. He did not address the central substantive issue of Nazi sympathy and anti-Semitism.

The Southern Poverty Law Center gained national attention in 1987 by destroying in court and bankrupting the United Klans of America, with chapters in 31 states, whose members had lynched an African-American teenager and bombed Birminghams 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four African-American children. Since then the SPLC has continued to win recognition for its teaching tolerance programs in schools, its vigorous legal defense of African Americans and other minorities, its tracking of hate groups, and its opposition to President Trumps immigration bans.

According to the SPLCs tally, the current number of hate groups in this country, 917, although lower than in 2011, is over twice as large as in 1999. Much of the recent increase, and the accompanying spate of anti-Semitic incidents, the SPLC attributes to the divisive atmosphere accompanying Donald Trumps presidential campaign. Although as early as 2015 Deir Yassin Remembered sought to place ads reading America First. Not Israel, one notes the congruence between their message and Donald Trumps America First slogan.

So far as is known, the picket of Beth Israel by Deir Yassin Remembered is the only sustained action targeting a Jewish house of worship anywhere in the United States. The picket has been condemned by members of the Palestinian-American community, by a great number of local clergymen of all faiths, by the mayor of Ann Arbor, the city council, the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, and The Ann Arbor News. On learning of Deir Yassins anti-Semitic views, The Ann Arbor Observer and several billboard companies have refused to accept ads from the group.

To avoid incidents, Beth Israel Congregation strongly discourages people from engaging with the demonstrators physically or verbally in any fashion.

David Shentow was Ottawa’s best known Holocaust survivor and … – Ottawa Citizen

David Shentow, a Holocaust survivor who was born on April 29, 1925 in Warsaw, died recently. Sean Kilpatrick / Postmedia When he was liberated from Dachau concentration camp on April 29, 1945 his 20th birthday David Shentow weighed just 76 pounds, but carried more memories than most men could bear. He had survived the Nazi occupation of Belgium, a forced-labour camp, the Auschwitz concentration camp, the Warsaw Ghetto, a death march and Dachau. He went home to Antwerp, Belgium, in the hopes of reuniting with relatives: Although he had heard his mother, father and two sisters had perished in Nazi death camps, he thought some of his aunts, uncles and cousins might come back to the Jewish Community Centre. The lonely weeks that followed were the most painful of his life. I realized Im the only one, he once told the Citizen. Out of 17 people, Im the only one who came back. Shentow would start a new life in Canada, and go on to become one of Ottawas best known Holocaust survivors and educators. For three decades, he was a tireless witness to history, suffering his memories in classrooms, auditoriums and museums so that others could understand the truth of the Final Solution the Nazi policy that systematically killed almost two out of every three European Jews by 1945. When I talk about it, he explained, I always feel Im not the only witness anymore. All these people who hear me, they are witnesses now. David Shentow died Monday in a Toronto nursing home after a lengthy illness. He was 92. My father was the most honourable man I have ever known, said his daughter, Rene Shentow, 66, of Toronto. He made it his mission to tell the truth. David Shentow, photographed in 2010 on the eve of his 85th birthday, with wife Rose. Bruno Schlumberger / Ottawa Debbie Weiss, chair of the Holocaust Committee for the Jewish Federation of Ottawa, said Shentow was a powerful witness because his testimony was so forthright, clear and honest. He also had a vulnerability, she said, that set him apart from other Holocaust survivors, many of whom were toughened by the horrors they experienced. David was different: He was a gentle soul, said Weiss. He exposed a vulnerability that most do not have, and I believe it is what touched so many. Carleton University professor Deidre Butler, director of The Max and Tessie Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies, called Shentow profoundly courageous. He spoke with warmth and seriousness and a naked honesty about what he had been through and you could see his pain, she said. He did it without hatred and with a real conviction that it honoured the victims, and that it worked against Holocaust denial. Shentow was born David Krzetowski in Warsaw, Poland in 1925. (He would change his name to Shentow upon arriving in Canada.) His family moved to Belgium while he was still an infant to escape the violent tides of Polish anti-Semitism.His father, Moishe, prospered as a tailor and the family put down roots in Antwerp. David Shentows mother and father, Rifka and Moishe, moved from Poland toBelgium in 1925 to escape the violent tides of Polish anti-Semitism. They perished in the Holocaust. Bruno Schlumberger / Ottawa On May 10, 1940, when the Germans launched co-ordinated attacks on Belgium, Holland and France, he packed his young family into a car and fled toward the French border, but the Nazis got there first. The family was forced to return to Antwerp. In occupied Belgium, the Gestapo forced Jews to surrender their radios and bicycles, then decreed they could no longer attend school, go to the theatre or sit on park benches. They were made to wear the Star of David. In August 1942, Shentow and his father were sent to a forced labour camp near Dieppe, France to build German fortifications. He was separated from his father, and months later, was loaded onto a train that took him across occupied Europe to Auschwitz, Poland, where he became prisoner 72585, a number tattooed on his left forearm. In Auschwitz, Shentow would remember, the prisoners slept three to a bunk; their 12-hour workday began at 6 a.m.; they were fed once a day: two slices of bread, a thin soup and coffee. They worked through the winter in striped cotton pyjamas, a cap and wooden clogs. I didnt know if I would freeze to death or starve to death, he once said. Shentow credited a friendly Polish prisoner with saving his life by arranging a job for him inside the camp tailor shop. In 1943, he was one of 4,000 prisoners sent to level what remained of Warsaws Jewish Ghetto, which had been razed by the Nazis after a spring uprising. In August 1944, as the Russian army advanced toward Warsaw, the prisoners were marched 100 kilometres west to Kutno, Poland, and crammed onto cattle cars bound for Dachau. After the war, with no relatives left in Belgium, Shentow emigrated to Canada. He arrived in March 1949 and went to work in a womenswear shop in Toronto. There, he met a young woman visiting from Ottawa, Rose Feldberg, and the two quickly became inseparable. Shentow moved to Ottawa and they married in February 1950. Shentow worked at Hudsons Bay department store for 28 years, and together with Rose, they raised two daughters, Rene and Lorie. He was a doting father who kept his family close. He was funny and he always knew what to say to make me feel better, said Rene. For many years, Shentow didnt talk about the Holocaust, not even to his children. He only began to recount his ordeal after Ernst Zundel and other Holocaust deniers began to make headlines in the 1980s. My father was such a modest, understated kind of man, it was painful for him to talk about his experiences, but he felt it was important, said Rene. Shentow returned four times to Auschwitz to take part in the March of the Living, a Holocaust education program, and appeared in several documentary films. He retold his story to students in Belgium, Israel and across Canada, and always asked that his audience not applaud. Im not an entertainer, he would admonish. I am a witness. His health declined during the final three years of his life, and he moved to Toronto earlier this year so that his family could better care for him. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Rose, their two children, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. aduffy@postmedia.com

Wetbacks in Reverse? Ernst Zundel banned forever from Land …

By Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel on April 29, 2017 “Give us your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” [ Note: After 14 years of legal wrangling at the cost of millions of dollars to both sides, the US government has ruled on discretionary grounds by an unelected bureaucrat named Ron Rosenberg, Chief, Administrative Appeals Office of the US Department of Homeland Security, that Ernst Zndel is banned from joining his family in the US. According to this ruling, a dissident contesting a disputed historical claim such as the Auschwitz gassing is now a criminal of moral turpitude. Can it get any more Kafkaesque? More will be said about this latest Zundel development at a later time. For now, here is the latest installment of the ever-expanding Global Zundel-Saga Ingrid Zundel ] * Ernst Zndel, in his own words: Ernst and Ingrid Zundel: Wetbacks in Reverse? Within hours of my illegal arrest in February 2003, fourteen years ago, I had been given an expulsion order with stiff penalties, should I dare to set foot in America ever again in the future. Should I be so brazen as to attempt a re-entry and be caught, I was to be arrested forthwith, detained, tried, and found guilty and put in prison to face a 20-year sentence as an illegal re-offender. Not only that, I risked a $250,000 fine for being such a fire-breathing dissident insisting on free speech on a forbidden topic all this still in handcuffs, without being allowed to at least see an immigration judge to explain that I was not an illegal I had been in the immigration pipeline to be admitted to legal residence as a relative to an American citizen wife. The day that Ernst Zundel was released from his 7-year prison term, supporters greeted him (file photo) I had been given a social security number, a health check, two FBI checks that cleared me of any wrong-doing, inoculations, a work permit, a travel permit the works! Not that any of this mattered at this point in the more than decades-long legal nightmare that followed. I was convicted despite all airtight evidence that I was not a visa overstay as had been falsely claimed. Once I had served my time of seven years in six prisons in three countries on two continents for having asked Did Six Million Really Die and after having successfully passed my probation hurdle of an additional three years I was left, more or less, to my own devices. My passport had been given back to me. It allowed me to travel to Russia, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Switzerland and elsewhere, visiting friends and loyal supporters, always wondering when the next trap would fall shut on me what other judicial injustice was waiting. I also tried to see Ingrid at least twice a year, always in some dishevelled Third World country. When traveling to Belize, the Dominican Republic, Mexico etc. to meet Ingrid who cannot travel to Europe because we know for certain there were at least two Interpol arrest warrants out for her as well because of her Zundelsite/Internet work I usually had to overfly Canada and the USA. On this latest trip on March 15, as I wistfully looked down on the plane at the outboard display, crossing Greenland, Island, Quebec, New York State and moseying along the Eastern seaboard and then inland, almost reaching Tennessee I wondered what would happen to me if the plane was, in fact, forced to make an emergency landing in the United States or Canada. There was this possibility. This threat was looming against me in the background. What if something happened mechanically to the plane and I was forced to step onto the so-called free-est country in the world and be re-arrested? Thus, when I boarded the Condor flight on the 15th of March to Cancun where Ingrid was waiting for me, I was keenly aware that I was entering a danger zone. This was a daylight flight unlike other Condor flights I had been on where I could at least sleep through the night. These long, non-stop international flights are hard on my body and psyche. By the time yet another new Zndel drama unfolded, I hadnt slept for almost 30 hours. As I looked out of the airplane window, I saw a shadowy, bluish fog of sorts that seemed to come out of a small crack of one of these jumbo-jet wings that kept us afloat. I watched it for a while, unease on my mind. It didnt go away it just curled into itself and dissolved. Suddenly, there was a crackled message from the Captain in the cockpit announcing that we were experiencing difficulty with the planes fuel gauges, which seemed to be malfunctioning. This meant, the Captain informed us in a terse voice, that we would have to make an unscheduled emergency landing at the nearest US airport. Here was what I had always feared! This nearest airport turned out to be an airstrip in St. Louis, MO, not exactly a home base for large passenger jets. As we descended, I could see the tarmac, old and run-down, with grass growing out of its crevices! With white knuckles, we all held onto our seats. After one of the roughest landings I have ever experienced, we rolled to a stop and were asked to deplane, using a rickety ladder, flanked by several dozen US firefighters in full gear all of them huge, nice, friendly men next to their flashing fire trucks. Clearly we had landed in the backwoods somewhere of the USA and here I was, being asked to step down onto the hallowed soil of the free-est country in the world risking yet another 20 years in gaol! I knew that the Captain had no choice but to alert US Homeland Security and the border police of my illegal entry status. I rang for the flight attendant to let her know about my predicament that my very presence in the US might cause an international incident, as they like to say in legalese. She looked at me, incredulous. Who was that placid senior citizen who looked as normal and as harmless as can be? She scurried to inform the folks in the cockpit. Next, the Captain came to see me, wanting to know what, exactly, I had done. I told him I was being punished for spreading historical truth I had published a booklet with a politically incorrect question mark the Global Noisy Lobby didnt like. He was shaking his head, looking doubtful. He, too, was left speechless, not knowing what next to do with this senior citizen passenger, almost 80 years of age, who sat there, smiling blithely, expecting to be handcuffed so as not to threaten the almighty USA! I was the last to deplane. I was flanked by two huge black border guards, armed to the teeth. Off we marched, with me giving the thumbs-up sign to some 250+ co-passengers who stepped aside to let us through, bewildered and aghast. Everybody stared at me as though I had come from the moon. This emergency landing clearly overwhelmed the airport personnel, and we had to wait for hours in a rundown, seedy reception area out of the 1950s. The two guards stayed by my side as though glued to my hips, and there was enough time to have a little friendly chat in the meantime. This was not the first time that I had entertained my captors with my woes as well as some hilarious highlights of my intrepid dissident past and by the time it was my turn to have my passport checked, the three of us had now become fast friends. Next, we were told US authorities were going to admit us legally into the US as visitors! Fat chance for me, I thought! All the while, I feared, I might be sent back to the Vaterland. I crossed my fingers and toes in hopes that would not happen. But luck was on my side. I, too, was bureaucratically paroled into Missouri, USA a minor miracle! At first it looked like the fuel line problem could be easily repaired, and that we could fly on to Cancun. However, the mechanical problems were too difficult for the local mechanics to fix, and it was decided to order a replacement plane from Germany. That would take another 12 13 hours with me getting ever more groggy from lack of sleep, lack of food and drink, and a simmering, low-level anxiety that sat in the pit of my heart. Meanwhile, our passports were scanned; finger prints and iris scans were made of each passenger; and of course, thanks to Internet bio information about me that had been surreptitiously studied by the American authorities as well as several passengers, I took on ever more the trappings of an heroic global dissident celebrity. I began to be treated not just with curiosity but with an open, smiling reverence by black and white alike. I will always remember a few of them with great fondness for instance, a tall, handsome Mexican-American veteran, with decades of experience in the US military, as well as a picture-book tall, blue-eyed Aryan from the Midwest, coming from a family of nine children. All of them were super-correct in their treatment of me very helpful and accommodating. I told them that I felt homesick for my beloved little art gallery in the Tennessee Mountains and being so near to where Ingrid and I had our place. Ernst at home in Tennessee Those uniformed, battle-hardened men seemed visibly moved.

Once again, I was the last one to be checked before having been granted parole, and promptly taken to a room for secondary screening. This procedure took several more hours of interviews by security people, and in the end, I was patted down and thoroughly searched, all my belongings, my money, my address book seized and I was taken to a holding cell, windowless, brightly illuminated the kind that I had already experienced in my decades-long travails while battling one of the worlds most vicious political lobbies. The personnel who checked me into this cell seemed ashamed of what they were ordered to do and fell all over themselves letting me know that they did not approve of this travesty and were simply following Homeland Security orders. I was given some small pillows, two bright yellow FEMA blankets to avoid hypothermia, and my two black, uniformed police or border guards, still armed to the teeth, told me that this was going to be my home until the replacement plane from Germany had arrived. Thank you to some of the dedicated people who protect our country (file photo) Soon additional, ever-so-friendly American guards came with three bottles of water, some potato chips and a hearty ham sandwich. No Muslim terrorist, this one, expecting special dietary favors! It was long after midnight. I slept a little, in spite of the bright lights. There was a video camera on the ceiling, the usual surveillance equipment. The hours passed slowly. After a while, two officers came to see me for an update. They told me that the plane from Germany was experiencing strong headwinds and would again be several hours later than expected. The night shift changed to the day shift, and familiar faces officers I had talked with before in the waiting room came to take over. Obviously, they too had checked up on me on the Net. They brought me a tooth brush and toothpaste, and a little later, to my utter surprise, a piping hot pizza and a delicious California salad, along with more water and even a Coca Cola crowning this hatemonger prison fare feast with a piece of delicious blueberry pie. To my relief, there was no attempt to send me back to Germany and once the plane arrived, we were all processed one more time and allowed to board the replacement Condor plane. It was about 8:30 pm, March 16, by the time we took off to Cancun! I did not have a telephone number for Ingrid, since no phone had been as yet installed in our little home in Mexico. I cleared the Mexican customs, got all the proper stamps, took an airport taxi and arrived at the door of my very relieved American citizen lady who greeted me with Am I happy to see you! We had lots to tell each other long after midnight wrapped in two bright yellow FEMA blankets I had asked to have as souvenirs, which the guards had allowed me to keep. * For a background summary of Ernst Zundels political outreach, please read Mark Webers excellent essay as published by the Institute for Historical Review: http://www.revisionists.com/revisionists/zundel.html *

Ernst Zundel | Fredrick Toben

By Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel on April 29, 2017 Give us your huddled masses yearning to breathe free Ernst Zndel, in his own words: Ernst and Ingrid Zundel: Wetbacks in Reverse? Within hours of my illegal arrest in February 2003, fourteen years ago, I had been given an expulsion order with stiff penalties, should I dare to set foot in America ever again in the future. Should I be so brazen as to attempt a re-entry and be caught, I was to be arrested forthwith, detained, tried, and found guilty and put in prison to face a 20-year sentence as an illegal re-offender. Not only that, I risked a $250,000 fine for being such a fire-breathing dissident insisting on free speech on a forbidden topic all this still in handcuffs, without being allowed to at least see an immigration judge to explain that I was not an illegal I had been in the immigration pipeline to be admitted to legal residence as a relative to an American citizen wife. The day that Ernst Zundel was released from his 7-year prison term, supporters greeted him (file photo) I had been given a social security number, a health check, two FBI checks that cleared me of any wrong-doing, inoculations, a work permit, a travel permit the works! Not that any of this mattered at this point in the more than decades-long legal nightmare that followed. I was convicted despite all airtight evidence that I was not a visa overstay as had been falsely claimed. Once I had served my time of seven years in six prisons in three countries on two continents for having asked Did Six Million Really Die and after having successfully passed my probation hurdle of an additional three years I was left, more or less, to my own devices. My passport had been given back to me. It allowed me to travel to Russia, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Switzerland and elsewhere, visiting friends and loyal supporters, always wondering when the next trap would fall shut on me what other judicial injustice was waiting. I also tried to see Ingrid at least twice a year, always in some dishevelled Third World country. When traveling to Belize, the Dominican Republic, Mexico etc. to meet Ingrid who cannot travel to Europe because we know for certain there were at least two Interpol arrest warrants out for her as well because of her Zundelsite/Internet work I usually had to overfly Canada and the USA. On this latest trip on March 15, as I wistfully looked down on the plane at the outboard display, crossing Greenland, Island, Quebec, New York State and moseying along the Eastern seaboard and then inland, almost reaching Tennessee I wondered what would happen to me if the plane was, in fact, forced to make an emergency landing in the United States or Canada. There was this possibility. This threat was looming against me in the background. What if something happened mechanically to the plane and I was forced to step onto the so-called free-est country in the world and be re-arrested? Thus, when I boarded the Condor flight on the 15th of March to Cancun where Ingrid was waiting for me, I was keenly aware that I was entering a danger zone. This was a daylight flight unlike other Condor flights I had been on where I could at least sleep through the night. These long, non-stop international flights are hard on my body and psyche. By the time yet another new Zndel drama unfolded, I hadnt slept for almost 30 hours. As I looked out of the airplane window, I saw a shadowy, bluish fog of sorts that seemed to come out of a small crack of one of these jumbo-jet wings that kept us afloat. I watched it for a while, unease on my mind. It didnt go away it just curled into itself and dissolved.

Horst Mahler, German neo-Nazi, arrested in Hungary – Religious Reader (press release) (blog)

The arrest of an 81-year-old former left-wing terrorist who turned to neo-Nazism and received a 10-year prison sentence for Holocaust denial has rallied neo-Nazis as far as Luxembourg. German media reported that the neo-Nazi extremist Horst Mahler had applied for political asylum in Hungary where Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who praises the authoritarian models of Russia and China, is cracking down on political opponents, the judiciary, refugees, the press, and universities. In 2009, a German court sentenced Mr Mahler to 10 years in prison, for racial offences and Holocaust denial. Due to ill-health, he left prison in 2015, but rather than face news charges accumulated in prison, he went on the run. Hungarian police confirmed his arrest on May 15. Officials informed the New York Times, that application from Mr Mahler on asylum grounds would be rejected due to his German citizenship. Mahlers switch in political extremes makes him an unusual and notorious figure in Germany. Yet, a consistent for Mr Mahler was his antisemitism. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2007, he said that others in the terrorist group he helped found, the Red Army Faction (RAF), agreed with his view that Jewish people were the devil. He went on to clarify that this form of antisemitism was cloaked in opposition to American imperialism. Mahlers father adored Hitler, having killed himself in 1949 when Horst was thirteen. The political scientist, Jan Rathje, who specialises in tracking far-right movements, told Deutsche Welle: Already in the RAF there were anti-Semitic connotations, and Mr Mahler had simply followed this consistent path towards the far-right. In the political unrest of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Mr Mahler gave legal counsel to prominent leftists including Andreas Baader and Gudrun Ensslin, who would later join him in the creation of the RAF. Horst involved himself in several bank robberies and a plot to break Baader out of prison. In 1973, he was sentenced to fourteen years in prison but gained early release in 1980 after making several public statements condemning terrorism and the RAF. Years earlier, authorities noted a change in Horsts ideology, declaring in 1977 that he was being internally freed from the dogmatic revolutionary theory of Marxism-Leninism. During the 1990s, Horst grew more prominent in the extreme-right scene, later joining the extreme far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) in 2000. Mr Mahler used his legal background to defend the NPD in a constitutional battle with the German government who wanted the party banned. This collapsed in 2003, as it emerged that key witnesses were government-paid informants. In that same year, a court in Mainz fined Mr Mahler several thousand euros for justifying the 9/11 terror attacks. He would also leave the NPD citing the partys desire to enter parliament, a position that was antithetical to his Reichsbrger stance, a loose movement that refuses to recognise the Federal Republic. A fusion of antisemitism, xenophobia, and anti-American conspiracies helped the NPD almost double its membership to 6,500 between 1996 and 2000, their message resonated with unemployed youth in eastern Germany. Experts pointed to the potent danger of Mahlers fusion of antisemitism and anti-imperialist nationalism. East Germany is still a fertile political ground for the NPD, with 264 of its 338 local council seats found in the region. The party did not make any progress in regional assemblies, as it did not reach the election threshold last September. A study by the Gttingen Institute for Democracy Studies found that old cultural attitudes carried over from the communist-era explain the virulent levels of xenophobia in east Germany. In short, the report documents how a selective cultural memory fuses and a failure to reconcile Nazi-era antisemitism helps fuel the scapegoating of foreigners for social and economic woes. This closed and ethnically homogenised society increases their vulnerability to the narratives of populists and the far-right. The study was commissioned following a rise in extreme right-wing violence in 2015. In January 2017, Germanys constitutional court rejected another bid to have the NPD banned, citing its lack of threat to German democracy. A move that drew broad criticism. In 2005, Horst was dismissed from the legal team of notorious Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, for having a racist conviction. Two years later, Zundel was found guilty of 14 counts of incitement to racial hatred and given a five-year prison sentence, the largest prison term available under German law for Holocaust denial.

An All-Purpose Hate Group – pride source.com

An All-Purpose Hate Group BY VICTOR LIEBERMAN Originally printed 5/5/2017 (Issue 2518 – Between The Lines News) Everyone knows that Donald Trump’s election has given new life to racist and homophobic groups. But too few Ann Arborites know that one of the most notorious of such groups is active in our own city – yes, in Ann Arbor, famous for its liberalism. The group in question, Deir Yassin Remembered, was listed in April 2016 by one of America’s leading civil rights organizations on a national register of Active Hate Groups. The Southern Poverty Law Center, based in Montgomery, Alabama, publishes an annual list of American “hate groups” that malign people on the basis of race, sexual orientation, or religion. The SPLC first became famous for bankrupting and destroying in court the United Klans of America, whose members had lynched an African-American teenager and bombed an African-American church, killing four little girls. This year for the first time Ann Arbor’s own Deir Yassin Remembered made the SPLC list. Why? What evidence supports this characterization? Whom do they target? Although no doubt the beliefs of individual supporters vary, the leaders of DYR are tied to activists who vilify Jews in particular, but also gays, lesbians, and black people. These, of course, were the classic targets of the Nazis, and the SPLC’s Senior Fellow Mark Potok – after a year’s research – has explicitly described DYR as defenders of Hitler’s “Germany and National Socialism,” that is to say, Nazism. Consider these all-purpose, equal opportunity obsessions: Hatred of Jews DYR leaders campaigned for the release from prison and the rehabilitation of Ernst Zundel, an ani-Semite jailed in his native Germany for “inciting racial hatred.” During his trial, Zundel’s lawyer signed court motions with the words “Heil Hitler.” Zundel co-authored a book “The Hitler We Loved and Why,” published by White Power Publications, which explained “It was never Hitler’s Germany. It shall always be Germany’s Hitler….Today, [Hitler’s] spirit soars beyond the shores of the White Man’s home in Europe. Wherever we are, he is with us. WE LOVE YOU, ADOLF HITLER.” To express their admiration for Zundel, Henry Herskovitz, who is a member of the Board of Advisors and Directors of DYR, together with Daniel McGowan, Executive Director of DYR, visited Zundel in Mannheim Prison in Germany. In 2014, Herskovitz also posted a picture of himself greeting Holocaust survivors at a memorial ceremony organized for their murdered families with a sign reading “Free Ernst Zundel.” Herskovitz appears at the Ann Arbor City Council to explain why the Holocaust is a fraud. He, McGowan, and another DYR Director Paul Eisen founded an organization “Jews for Justice for Germans,” which calls for an end to German reparations to Jews, Jewish reparations to Germany to atone for the suffering inflicted on that country by lying about the Holocaust, and the repeal of all Holocaust denial laws. Unsurprisingly, Holocaust denial is a recurrent, indeed central, theme on the DYR website, and the SPLC has explicitly identified DYR as Holocaust deniers. Every Saturday for 13 years DYR has picketed a synagogue in Ann Arbor. In person outside the synagogue and on their website, DYR activists promote an array of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories: Jews built gas ovens in the death camps after World War Two to frame the Germans. Jews created and now control ISIS. Jews destroyed the Twin Trade Towers in New York City on 9/11. Jews have organized all the chief terrorist attacks in Europe and America. According to a report in the Washtenaw Jewish News, while standing outside Beth Israel in 2012 a leader of the weekly picket summarized his views in these exact words: “I hate Jews. Whatever happened to them in World War II, they brought on themselves. They deserved everything they got.” Hatred of Gays In Nazi ideology, anti-Semitism was tied to hatred of gays. In a recent letter to the Washtenaw Jewish News, Herskovitz identified Larry Brayboy of Ann Arbor as “a close friend” of the synagogue picketers and proposed a debate between Brayboy and a local Jew so that Brayboy could “prove” there was no such event as the Holocaust. Who is Brayboy? He is a homophobe who regularly sends unsolicited mass e-mails to prominent figures in Michigan and the US with such lovely messages as that of April 14, 2017: “Exposing Bernie Sanders Neocon Dick Sucking Jew Faggot.” DYR Director Paul Eisen appeared on the radio show of David Duke, the Louisiana anti-Semite, white supremacist, and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Said Eisen to Duke on the air, “I never heard you, David, say anything that I didn’t think was true.” One can only conclude that Eisen accepts Duke’s oft-stated view, expressed for example on DavidDuke.com on Aug. 22, 2013, that Jews have masterminded the campaign to undermine Western morality by promoting homosexuality in the courts, forcing homosexuals into the Boy Scouts, spreading pornography, and above all, by legalizing gay marriage. Duke described Tel Aviv as “one of the world’s most gay-friendly cities.” He concluded his on-line posting with twelve pictures of what he called “particularly repulsive specimens” of Jewish gays and lesbians. Since DYR denies that the Holocaust occurred, they have no reason to accept that gays were victims of the Holocaust. The truth is that 100,000 gay men were arrested in Nazi Germany, an unknown number were castrated to “cure their sickness,” and up to 15,000 were sent to concentration camps, where a great many were murdered. Hatred of Blacks David Duke, whose worldview, we just saw, DYR Director Paul Eisen endorsed, is arguably American’s best known white supremacist. Among the former KKK Imperial Wizard’s more notable quotes is the following comment to The Sun newspaper of Wichita, Kansas: “White people don’t need a law against rape, but if you fill this room up with your normal black bucks, you would, because niggers are basically primitive animals.” And consider these sweet recent e-mail postings by Larry Brayboy, whom Henry Herskovitz identified as the “close friend” of synagogue picketers and the man whom DYR wants to represent its views in public debate. Here is how Brayboy describes his political foes: “Dem Howard Dean ANOTHER JEW NIGGER…” (April 11, 2017) “HEY OBAMA FUCK YOUR DAUGHTERS IN THE ASS YOU SLIMY FUCKING NIGGER WAR CRIMINAL” (April 17, 2017) “DIRTY FUCKING CRACK WHORE MICHELLE DIRTY FUCKING WAR CRIMINAL FUCKING NIGGER” (April 17, 2017) “Multiple examples of JEW NIGGER MEDIA FUCKING your Mothers in the Ass” (April 24, 2017) When asked recently by Michigan Radio-WUOM for his reaction to the SPLC’s listing of DYR as a hate-group, Herskovitz sought to frame the issue as one of free speech. “I feel very fortunate to live in America, where free speech is protected. If I were in Germany or France, I’d be in jail just for speaking my mind. That’s not right to me.” His response is doubly ironic. First, he uses free speech to defend the policies of Nazi Germany, whose practices were the antithesis of free speech. If you regard liberal values as sacred, you don’t endorse a regime which posed the 20th century’s most fundamental threat to those same values. Second, no one, certainly not the SPLC, has ever questioned DYR’s Fist Amendment rights. The issue is not free speech, but the purposes to which speech is directed. The SPLC – seconded over the years by Ann Arbor clergy of all faiths, the Ann Arbor Mayor and City council, and the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice – decries efforts by DYR and allied individuals to instill hatred, to malign entire categories of people on the basis of religious, racial, or sexual identity. DYR’s new slogan, reminiscent of a certain presidential campaign, is “America First. Not Israel.” It’s hard to imagine a group more hostile than DYR to the principles of inclusion and tolerance basic to American democracy.

Hearing begins into Canada Post ban on controversial newspaper … – CBC.ca

A board of review hearing began Tuesday into a federal order prohibiting a Toronto-area publication that’s been called vile, racist and anti-Semitic from being sent in the mail. The people who run the newspaper Your Ward News are challenging the order put in place in June, 2016, by the then-federal minister responsible for Canada Post. Police have investigated the publication for hate speech but no charges have been laid. This type of hearing is rare. The last time a minister banned mail from being distributed by Canada Post was in 1981, against a publishing company owned by Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. It was overturned months later by a review board. Political consultant Warren Kinsella is one of the peoplecomplainingabout the paper, which is edited and published by James Sears and Laurence St. Germaine. “There’s the use of the n-word, there’s racism on every page, it is the most disgusting thing.” Warren Kinsella shows some of the graphic images found in Your Ward News (Lorenda Reddekopp, CBC News) To prove his point, Kinsellashowedexamples from old editions he photocopied. One image portrays a Jew as a dog; another shows an image of Jesus sexually assaulting a woman. While the publication is based in the Toronto area, he says this review is important for all Canadians. “We need to sayCanada Post should not be distributing hatred;Canada Post should not be allowed to distribute racism.” Multiple groups and people want to be considered interested parties in the reviewprocess, including some Jewish organizations, which say they received complaints about the newspaper, including from Holocaust survivors shocked to see images of a swastika. Paul Fromm, founder of the Canadian Association for Free Expression and a self-described white nationalist, says Your Ward News should have the right to use Canada Post to distribute the paper. (Lorenda Reddekopp, CBC News) The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUP-W), also requested standing to speak on behalf of employees disgusted by having to deliver the newspaper. The Canadian Association for Free Expression argues the publication has a right to use the mail system. “People should have the right to publish what they want,” said the association’s founder Paul Fromm, whorefers to himself as a white nationalist. Emilie Taman, co-counsel for the two men who produce Your Ward News, argues the government has stripped them of their right to free speech. “If people don’t want to read it, there’s a garbage can, there’s a blue box, there’s the bottom of the bird cage.” The lawyers representing Your Ward News arguethe minister’s order has taken away their clients’ freedom of speech, though the publication is still available online and can also be delivered usinga private courier service. “It opens [a] floodgate, which is a government assessing the speech that it likes and doesn’t like at a lower standard than we would say is appropriate,” said lawyer Emilie Taman. Any recommendation by this three-person board of review is still at least months away. The board is still sorting out procedural issues. It isn’t expected to hear submissions and lookat evidence related to the ban until late summer at the earliest.

It’s Official: Picketers are Pro-Nazi Hate Group – The Michigan Review

To express their apparent solidarity and admiration for Zundel, in 2006 Henry Herskovitz, a member of the board of advisors and directors of Deir Yassin Remembered, together with Daniel McGowan, executive director of Deir Yassin Remembered, visited Zundel in Mannheim Prison in Germany. Recalled Herskovitz on the Deir Yassin Remembered website with evident emotion, I share with Dan the warm feelings felt at the end of the hour visit. Ernst Zundel did not merely shake hands with me; he held mine in his. Eight yearslater the memory remains strong. In 2014 Herskovitz, a leader of the Ann Arbor picket, posted a picture of himself greeting Holocaust survivors at a memorial ceremony organized for their murdered families at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Herskovitz welcomed them with a sign reading Free Ernst Zundel. Herskovitz associate McGowan wrote the foreword to a book of Holocaust denial, Resistance Is Obligatory, by Germar Rudolf, another Holocaust denier sentenced to jail in his native Germany for inciting racial hatred. Rudolf s book was published by the Barnes Review, described by the SPLC as one of the most virulent anti- Semitic organizations around. On his radio program and website David Duke, the Louisiana anti-Semite, white supremacist, and former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, interviewed another director of Deir Yassin Remembered, the self-described Holocaust denier Paul Eisen. Said Eisen to Duke on the air, I never heard you, David, say anything that I didnt think was true. And Duke s view of Eisen: an incredibly insightful and thoughtful presentation. Herskovitz appears periodically at the Ann Arbor City Council to explain why the Holocaust is a fraud. He, McGowan, and Eisen founded an organization Jews for Justice for Germans, which calls for an end to German reparations to Jews, Jewish reparations to Germany to atone for the suffering in icted on that country, and the repeal of all Holocaust denial laws. Unsurprisingly, Holocaust denial is a recurrent, indeed central, theme on the Deir Yassin Remembered website. In late 2016 supporters of the organization picketed the Michigan Theater to protest the showing of the lm Denial, which narrates how an English Holocaust denier was humiliated in court. On the Deir Yassin Remembered website, in sponsored talks in Ann Arbor, and in person outside the synagogue during their weekly picket, activists promote an array of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories: Jews built gas ovens in the death camps after World War Two to frame the Germans. Jews created and now control ISIS. Jews, more speci cally Israelis, directed the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Trade Towers in New York City. Israel also has organized the recent terrorist attacks in Europe and America, including attacks on Jewish institutions. (The lattera were false flag operations designed to throw off suspicion from the real perpetrators.) The business/personal identification card of a well-known picket leader carried the logo: Challenging Jewish Power since 2003. According to a report in the Washtenaw Jewish News, while standing outside Beth Israel in 2012 that same individual summarized his political views in these exact words: I hate Jews. Whatever happened to them in World War Two they brought on themselves. They deserved everything they got. These, then, are the materials from which the SPLC constructed its case against Deir Yassin Remembered. In the same Michigan Radio program of February 28 in which Mark Potok of the SPLC was quoted, Herskovitz sought to frame the issue in terms of free speech. I feel very fortunate to live in America, where free speech is protected. If I were in Germany or France, Id be in jail just for speaking my mind. Thats not right to me. He did not address the central substantive issue of Nazi sympathy and anti-Semitism. The Southern Poverty Law Center gained national attention in 1987 by destroying in court and bankrupting the United Klans of America, with chapters in 31 states, whose members had lynched an African-American teenager and bombed Birminghams 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four African-American children. Since then the SPLC has continued to win recognition for its teaching tolerance programs in schools, its vigorous legal defense of African Americans and other minorities, its tracking of hate groups, and its opposition to President Trumps immigration bans. According to the SPLCs tally, the current number of hate groups in this country, 917, although lower than in 2011, is over twice as large as in 1999. Much of the recent increase, and the accompanying spate of anti-Semitic incidents, the SPLC attributes to the divisive atmosphere accompanying Donald Trumps presidential campaign. Although as early as 2015 Deir Yassin Remembered sought to place ads reading America First. Not Israel, one notes the congruence between their message and Donald Trumps America First slogan. So far as is known, the picket of Beth Israel by Deir Yassin Remembered is the only sustained action targeting a Jewish house of worship anywhere in the United States. The picket has been condemned by members of the Palestinian-American community, by a great number of local clergymen of all faiths, by the mayor of Ann Arbor, the city council, the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, and The Ann Arbor News. On learning of Deir Yassins anti-Semitic views, The Ann Arbor Observer and several billboard companies have refused to accept ads from the group. To avoid incidents, Beth Israel Congregation strongly discourages people from engaging with the demonstrators physically or verbally in any fashion.
