The Fascist European State Shows Its Teeth.

By Philip Jones 6th October 2008.

"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."
Jewish American writer , Noam Chomsky.

The European Union’s march towards the Totalitarian State it was always intended to be, moved another step closer to achieving it’s own `Final Solution` to those who will not bow down before it’s tyranny.This week in the country of my birth, a London magistrates’ court will consider a bail application in an extradition case which should set alarm bells ringing across Europe.

Fredrick Toben, a German-born Australian citizen was arrested at as he passed through Heathrow Airport by British police officers acting under an EU arrest warrant issued by the German authorities, who have accused him of publishing Anti-Semitic Holocaust-denial material on his website.

I personally do not agree with Mr Toben’ views at all, and in my mind, there is no doubt that Toben, who was previously sentenced to a nine months’ prison sentence in Germany for breaching its Holocaust- denial laws is a falsifier of history, and holds views which are erroneous at best and intentionally hateful at worse. He says, for example, that there is no proof that Hitler systematically exterminated the Jews and that Auschwitz was merely a ‘transit camp’.

I do not doubt and in fact concur with the view that `The Holocaust` has been used by such organisations as B’nai B’rith and the notorious Anti Defamation League in North America as a vehicle to suppress any criticism of both Israel and the Rothschild Dynasty. And that the exact numbers of victims is probably imprecise. But to simply say it never happened is both offensive and callous, and provably incorrect.

Now, I do not despise Toben because I do not know him. I don’t agree with his views, but accept his right to hold them, just as I will maintain to the day I die my own right to hold to mine. I am vehemently against the extradition of this man and appalled at the political and legal developments that have brought these moves about. There are two fundamental issues at stake here. First is the threat to the principle of freedom of speech. Second is the erosion of Britain’s power to uphold its own historic commitment to that principle.Freedom of speech is a bedrock of our society.

Now we have laws in the UK which outlaw incitement to racial hatred. I do not agree with prejudice of any kind, and even when another person’s lifestyle does not conform to my own view of what a good and decent life is. Providing they do not force or coerce another into participating in that lifestyle, then I accept their right to live as they choose and expect the same courtesy in return.

But what concerns me now, as our world moves ever closer towards a form of Global Dictatorship, is the relentless legislation of human life. Instead of teaching our children what is right and wrong, we legislate for it instead. It is my sincere belief that a free society should be governed by the most minimal form of governance, and that laws should be made wisely and sparingly.

The Race hate laws have done more harm than good, as has `Hate` legislation generally. Such laws are enacted for political and ideological reasons and never for the good of the people.

There must be a distinction drawn, for example, between inciting hatred of people for what they inescapably are, and inciting hatred of their views, which we see as part of the cut and thrust of a liberal democratic society. That’s why there was such uproar over the new crime of incitement to religious hatred.

It’s because of this respect for debate that the UK has never criminalised Holocaust-denial. Odious as it is, it is an interpretation of history , and one which in any event defies easy categorisation. True, it’s an interpretation that is used to stir up suspicion against Jewish people. But once you argue that it should therefore be made a crime, there’s no end to it.

Classic English literature is filled with anti- Jewish stereotypes and attitudes. But no one would suggest that such literary classics should be censored. In a free society, the proper antidote to the dissemination of lies is the expression of the truth. When David Irving was jailed for this crime in Austria, did denial of the Holocaust stop? Not at all! if anything, it turned him into a modern day martyr. Much more effective was the deconstruction of his ideas in a British courtroom when he chose to bring a libel action, which rebounded against him by discrediting his claim to be a ‘historian’ and ending with his denunciation by the trial judge as a ‘pro-Nazi polemicist’.

That is the British way of doing things. But what is so disturbing about the Toben case is that we may be forced to become accomplices to a view which is completely alien to that British way of doing things.

If Toben is extradited, this will mean that Britain will be treating as a criminal suspect someone who is accused of doing or saying something which is not regarded as a crime in the UK. That breaches an ancient principle of British law — which we threw into the `trash can` when our own tyrants signed up to the European arrest warrant. Another factor in all of this, is that it is not just foreigners but British citizens who can now be arrested in the UK and extradited to a country which accuses them of committing a crime there which is not treated as a crime here.

This is part of the attempt to create a ‘Corpus Juris,’ a European body of criminal law, which is in turn a key element of the EU vision of a Unified Totalitarian Super-State whose inhabitants will be deceived, coerced or forced into subscribing to the same principles.

But we British have a very different system of justice and even by the above listed sinister methods, it is difficult to imagine that a day will not come when this foreign ideal of law will be rejected wholemeal by the people themselves, no matter what the politicians decide.

  1. Dear Philip,

    I just read your Tobin Outrage article. Your precisional cutting of the bonds that are suffocating free speech is more than impressive. The laws that they are implementing everywhere are taking us down the road to fear and it's salacious twin, silence. The first step is to outlaw anything that questions any part of history. To call attention to the opposite view of something is called debate. Then any group clamouring for their "rights" now becomes the law of the land. Here in the US for any good person,Christian or otherwise, to point out the revolting and immoral behavior of homosexuals, now brings down the wrath of the establishment on one's head. It is now required for teachers, in classes as early as the 2nd grade, to teach diversity, tolerance and acceptance of those whose sexual choices point not to deviancy, but only to "alternate lifestyles." And the parents, out of fear, protest not.

    What happens to the "rights" of those who prefer morality to immorality, and good over evil? We will be crushed out of existence if not silenced first. The Illuminati agenda of the destruction of tradition, family and love continues right on schedule. The heroic, like you, must keep shouting out the truth. And truly, with God's help, we will not be stopped this time.
