GERMANY STILL HUNTS TOBEN!
By Rev. Ted Pike
25 Nov 08
Holocaust reductionist Dr. Frederick Toben, freed by a British court from the German/EU charge that he questioned the official 6-million figure and methods of the Holocaust, thought he was a free man last Thursday. German authorities gave up their attempt in the English courts to have him deported to Germany for trial and almost certain imprisonment.
Now, he is a hunted man again. Andreas Grossman, the Mannheim prosecutor who put Toben’s reductionist friends, Ernst Zundel and Germar Rudolph, in prison says, “England will not extradite him, but we will continue to attempt to have him arrested in other countries.” (Associated Press, “Germany Pursues Arrest of Well-known Holocaust Denier Set Free by UK Court,” 24/11/2008)
German “Holocaust denial” hate laws are unique for two reasons: First, penetration of Germany with “hate speech” via the internet is considered just as much an indictable crime as if one actually committed the offense on German soil. Second, the German government is empowered to seek extradition of anyone in the world if they publicly lessen the 6-million figure or doubt that gas chambers and crematoria were primary means of killing such vast numbers of Jews.
Since Germany also attempted to deport Toben for “anti-Semitism,” it is possible Germany might also demand extradition of those who criticize matters Jewish.
Could Germany Come for You?
Germany’s determination to apprehend Toben across international boundaries should frighten us all. Israeli “Nazi hunters” for nearly 60 years have disregarded national sovereignties and laws to bring those accused of assisting the Holocaust to justice in Israel. Now, under Jewish-inspired German Holocaust denial laws, just questioning the extent of the Holocaust on the internet is evidently considered a similar offense.
Can Toben escape extradition? Probably not in countries unsympathetic to independent reexamination of the Holocaust. These include the U.S., Canada, and Toben’s Australia. Germar Rudolph and Ernst Zundel couldn’t find sanctuary.
Toben was arrested at Heathrow Airport in London on October 1 en route to Dubai. Maybe he should book another flight to that anti-Zionist country, steering very clear of Europe!
As for the rest of us, who inadvertently violate German cyberspace by freely questioning on the internet….
Where shall we flee?
