12 September 2008 Thought for the Week:
be no adequate understanding of the suicide or survival alternative facing humanity,
without a proper perception of the financial reality that is the abuse of the
role of money which is the root cause of all economic evil, and hence of most
of the social disorders threatening the future of society.
- - Peter Lock in "Malice in Plunderland" Adelaide South Australia. August 2008.
AN OPEN LETTER TO BOB DEBUS
The Hon. Bob Debus,
Dear Mr Debus,
As distinguished QC Dr I. C. F. Spry argued ('Legal Notes: The Kalejs Case: An
Inappropriate Pursuit', in National Observer, Council for the National Interest,
No. 44, Autumn 2000, pp 61 to 66), the amendment of the War Crimes Act in 1989
was an injudicious decision, opposed by many of Australia's senior lawyers. Dr
Spry commented that 'it is inherently unsafe to prosecute people for offences
that took place fifty years ago. Memories and recollections are commonly unsafe
after more than several years, and evidence by wholly or partly senile individuals,
after fifty years, is inappropriate.'
(2) Remarks made by Canadian
attorney Douglas H. Christie are also germane ('Introduction' to The Path of Legal
Warfare: Imre Finta's Trial for War Crimes by Keltie Zubko, Veritas Publishing
Company Pty Ltd, 1991). Finta, a Hungarian, was acquitted of alleged 'Nazi war
crimes' on 25th May 1990. He was fortunate to be tried before a jury of ordinary
citizens and defended by a counsel (Christie) highly skilled in cross examination.
Mr Christie reported that the case 'demonstrated that a careful examination of
survivors' testimony reveals a wealth of contradictions casting serious doubt
on the whole story '.. The diaries made at the time by at least one Holocaust survivor
did not record many of the horrors she recalled now for the Holocaust Remembrance
Association, but it did record many good and happy events which she either chose
to ignore or had forgotten.
Christie also drew attention to another unsatisfactory aspect of these war crimes trials: 'In Israel or in Hungary, the state simply assisted the prosecution for years before the trial. They were not obliged to assist the defence at all by the agreement negotiated with Canada by which access to Archives and to all records was assured. The Canadian Government got access to the International Tracing Service at Arolsen where all concentration camp records of the Red Cross are kept. This was denied to the defence.' Thus Finta, an individual person, was involved in unequal contest with opponents including the two governments and the very powerful, influential and financially gifted Jewish lobby. There is a strong presumption that such a contest will await Mr Zentai if he is extradited to Hungary. Moreover, judging by the way this case has been reported in the major newspapers read in Melbourne (my home city), especially The Australian, there is also a strong presumption that the major media are in an alliance against Mr Zentai too. Opinion articles supporting the extradition have been published, but none opposed to it; and recently even the letters pages have been closed to defenders of Mr Zentai.
It is worth remembering the jubilation with which The Australian published (over several full pages) the now infamous verdict of the first Demjanjuk trial. It is also worth noting that distinguished British author Count Nikolai Tolstoy (a witness for Demjanjuk) also expressed grave reservations about the 'show trial' tendencies of 'Nazi war crimes' trials (Foreword to The Report of the Symposium on the Proposed War Crimes Legislation in Australia, Captive Nations' Council of Victoria, Chadstone, 1988): 'Despite the plausible reassurances, it is scarcely credible that it is really intended to protect defendants' rights as carefully as is claimed. Trials of this sort, inevitably lasting for weeks or months and involving the bringing of eyewitnesses and highly paid experts from the other side of the globe, must inevitably prove prohibitively expensive.'
Count Tolstoy, rightly in my view, also challenged the bona fides of the whole campaign against alleged 'Nazi war criminals): 'Nor is it possible to avoid taking into account the bad faith and questionable motives of all too many of the most active proponents of the legislation of the type proposed. Why have they waited so inordinately long before launching their campaign? The claim that they have only recently been alerted to the presence of alleged war criminals in Australia seems scarcely credible. Is it coincidence that the move is one being simultaneously orchestrated in a number of countries around the world, and that in more than one country it is openly acknowledged to be linked as much to current political requirements as to judicial considerations?' That such may also be the case in Australia in 2008 is suggested by remarks by former editor of The Age and long-term supporter of the campaign, Michael Gawenda ('War crimes should be punished - no matter how long it takes,' The Age, 28th August 2008). Mr Gawenda, in advocating the extradition of Mr Zentai, wrote that the arguments for such action are 'as much about recognition of what was done as about delivering justice' and that Mr Zentai's alleged crime is to be seen as 'part of the annihilation of millions of Jews during World War II'.
There is much more that could be placed before you, Mr Debus, in favour of any application by Mr Zentai. Among other items, I have in mind the statements made by various of his opponents here and overseas that 'Australia has been too slow to achieve a guilty verdict in a Nazi war crimes trial'. This arouses a presumption that an attitude of 'finding a scalp' may be involved, or of a determination to force Australia to bow in submission to the campaign, or that the Australian Government may even now be under duress to co-operate in the extradition of Mr Zentai. Such a presumption is strengthened by the opinion article published in The Australian by Glenn Milne ('"Idiot" MPs could save Kalejs', 9th October 2000. Milne reported that coalition Senator Vanstone had warned her fellow MPs 'that if they fail to allow Kalejs to be extradited the Government will face an electoral backlash from Australia's powerful Jewish lobby.' Milne added" 'Vanstone is not worried about civil liberties niceties. She simply wants Kalejs extradited for political reasons.' This claim was not challenged by the Senator.
On 22nd March 1961 Sir Garfield Barwick announced in the Australian Parliament that the Government had decided to 'close the chapter on war crimes.' I believe that that was a wise decision and that subsequent changes of policy may be leading towards a morally monstrous action (the extradition of Mr Zentai) which will be a serious blot on the soul of our nation. Given this whole context, which I have only adumbrated and which really deserves book-length treatment, I argue that at his advanced age and in his frail condition of health Mr Zentai deserves to be protected from such a difficult and questionable set of judicial proceedings. I hope that, if necessary, you will agree with me.
Yours sincerely, Nigel Jackson, Poet, Belgrave Vic.
CANADA AND FREE SPEECH
by Ian Wilson LL.B:
Here in Australia the same results are possible as well for our legislation mirrors Canada's. It will just take a bit more political will to move past 'Holocaust deniers' to wipe out the rest of us 'politically incorrect' characters. But no doubt it is on the agenda.
loss of freedom of speech indicates that the West is losing its way and is undergoing
a process of internal decomposition. Now is the time for the lions of freedom
- where are you? - to roar as never before. Before it is really too late.
NAZI ORGIES AND PRIVACY LAW IN BRITAIN
by Ian Wilson
Newspapers lamented that Justice David Eady "has almost single-handedly created what is now a privacy law in Britain" ("Mosley Judge Rewrites the Rules, Hurts Media," The Australian 12/8/08 p.31). And the hurt shows in The Australian article.
But the Human Rights Act (1998), a gift from the EU enshrines in domestic law a right to privacy. Justice Eady is only implementing the law before him. If the media is now hurting then they should have done something before this to oppose 'one world' law.
THE COST OF ETHNIC DIVERSITY
by Brian Simpson:
None of these academics supported a cut in immigration, even though immigration is the cause of this diversity. Healy also found that those living in multicultural areas of Melbourne may also be "hunkering down like turtles" to use Putnam's metaphor.
Healy concludes: "Some commentators on ethnic
diversity imagine that social cohesion has only broken down if overt violence
occurs. Yet, similarly to Putnam's observations in the United States, the present
analysis indicates that loss of social capital may not be obvious.
LONDON'S 'IMMIGRANT SHOWCASE' ENDS IN CARNAGE
British National Party 26/8/08:
Some 11,000 police officers
were deployed at the event, costing taxpayers '6 million. They were attacked,
glassed, pelted with missiles and confronted all day with everything from knife
wielding black hoodlums and drunks, to dangerous dogs.
Police were battered
near the centre of the carnival in Ladbroke Grove after 40 black youths attacked
them in planned formations for two hours, pelting them with everything they could
find, including bottles, bricks, steel bars and other objects. One officer was
glassed in the face. Backup had to be called in the form of fully armoured riot
police, who baton-charged the black mob before order was restored.
"Another had a two-inch gash above his eye. He was staggering and supported by two colleagues. The mob weren't scared. They were running towards the police who were chanting 'one, two, three' and charging them. It was like a war zone. I haven't seen anything like it at the carnival since the early Nineties. It reminded me of the Brixton riots."
The 488 arrests were for offences ranging from assault, possessing an offensive weapon, drunk driving and theft, to public order and drugs. Even this figure is still being revised upwards. Arrests for some of the more serious offences included: 59 for drug offences, 25 for carrying an offensive weapon, 40 public order offences, 18 for assault, 11 for theft, seven for drunken behaviour, two sexual offences and two for robbery.
Specialist dog liaison officers impounded 19 dogs under the Dangerous Dogs Act. Black gangs in London have increasingly taken to using dogs as attack weapons. A teen was stabbed twice in the upper back after 10 to 12 youths chased him like a pack of animals in Clifford Gardens in the final hours of the carnival. The stabbed teenager had been chased by a gang of black youths just yards from where City lawyer Tom Rhys Price, 31, was stabbed to death in a robbery by black youths two years ago.
Melissa Johnson, 18, said: "I heard people screaming and swearing so I came outside. He was lying on the ground on his back with his head on the side. There was blood all on his face." Engineer Robert Dowdy, 40, said: "They chased him up the road like a pack of dogs, yelling and screaming. They were kicking and punching and swinging at him. There were two stab wounds on his upper back."
Chief Inspector Jo Edwards
praised 'proactive policing', including stop and search tactics, as authorities
sought to avoid a repeat of the shootings and stabbings which had dogged previous
years. Last year, two teenagers were shot, while two men were murdered in 2000,
and memories of riots in 1976 linger.
man is a fool - or worse:
LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN COMMONWEALTH CONSTITUTION ?
Councillor King says questioning
voters is only one step on the way to a national referendum on the issue.
SO MAYOR KING !!
Local Government existed BEFORE the sheep paddock now known as Canberra - and federal politicians - came into existence. Nowhere will you read or hear about the direct and indirect control exerted by the Money Power when dealing with any of the political/constitutional issues.
Not only are Local Governments and State Governments directed and controlled by the fraudulent Money Power but so are all the nations of the world. There is a section in the Commonwealth Constitution Act enabling State Governments to set up State banks, thus freeing the States from the control of the Commonwealth purse-strings. State banks did once exist - even if they did not function for the real benefit of the people, but they were gutted by gutless politicians.
out all stops and spread the word that the Social Dynamics DVDs are available
free to download on the League's front page of its website: www.alor.org/ .
Local governments will be simply the administration centres for Canberra's centralized policies - who in turn are merely the minions for International Financial Power.
TWO MAGNIFICENT BOOKS
by James Reed
This has alienated the Arab Muslim world, and has led to the demonisation of Arabs and Muslims. Felton shows how Osama bin Laden was once a useful tool of the West, but fell from grace when his use-by-date was reached. Behind the war on terror lies the thirst for oil. "The Three Trillion Dollar War" by Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes is an adventure in using conventional economics to produce unconventional results.
Stiglitz and Bilmes calculate the economic cost of the war on terror - three trillion dollars - and outline how this money could have been spent to virtually eliminate the ill-health of the poorest people of the world who lack even safe drinking water. This is a shocking read - exposing the inhumanity of the military-industrial-financial complex. These books are well recommended for anyone concerned about the future of the West.
