[...] For me, the word "parasites" had horrid connotations, because it was the very label that was used in Russia to slaughter out _my_ family [...] Ernst wasn't home, and I was really panicky. But when I finally got hold of him, he told me very calmly: "Ingrid, censorship is censorship. I am not responsible for other people's thoughts. I don't censor _or_ condone them. As long as people don't mess with our web site texts, content etc., I will respect their freedom and right to think, be, write and say what is on their minds." He then went on to say that as the mirroring idea spreads, no doubt there would be people who might well be Marxists, homosexuals, pornographers, who would want put up their own mirrors -- all of whom would be targets and victims of Bonn government's heavy-handed censorship. Was he to censor them? He added: "No. I am not going to tell a man what he can or cannot put on his own web pages. We stand and fall on our own merits. _I_ don't condone aggressive language. It's not my style. I have said so in my editorial on our own web page - which is a mere reflection of my own outlook on life." From Frank Miele's interview of Ernst Zuendel in Skeptic magazine, Volume 2, Number 4, 1994, p. 62: Israel, [Zuendel] says, is "a parasitic enterprise and they don't deserve it. It wouldn't happen if it weren't for the Holocaust. The Jews will have to give back the money to the Germans or to the Palestinians and make restitution to the Germans. They must apologize verbally and then financially. They got the money illegitimately. It must be turned over to legitimate causes." "Why go back in time?" I asked. "Why not just wipe the slate clean?" In an even more strident tone he replied, "Why should we let parasites and liars live with their loot? They took it from Egypt (a reference to the Old Testament Exodus). They're not going to take it from the Germans." "Those are awfully strong words," I said, offering him a chance to take them back were he to feel they were spoken in a moment of anger. "They are strong words. After what I've suffered, the price I've paid, I have the right to use strong words." I gave him yet another chance. "You're comfortable being quoted on that?" "Absolutely. The Holocaust has become an enterprise based on falsehoods and lies and they are promoting it criminally." http://www.almanac.bc.ca/cgi-bin/ftp.pl?people/z/zundel.ernst/zundelgrams/zgram960202 http://www.skeptic.com/02.4.miele-holocaust.html -- Jamie McCarthy http://www.absence.prismatix.com/jamie/ firstname.lastname@example.org Co-Webmaster of http://www.almanac.bc.ca/ Unless you specify otherwise, I assume pro-"revisionism" email to be in the public domain.
