Orwellian Alert! British Crackdown Threatens Us All

by Maj. William B. Fox, Dr. Capt. Eric H. May, J Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008 at 12:27 PM

“Free speech cannot be defended by silence”

Dr. Fredrick Toben, an Australian citizen and historical revisionist scholar, was arrested and imprisoned while passing through London’s Heathrow Airport on Oct. 1. He was en route from the U.S. to Dubai. British authorities are trying to enforce an EU warrant issued by the German government that criminalizes anyone who publishes material online “of an anti-Semitic and/or revisionist nature.”

Rev. Ted Pike, a major American pro-First Amendment activist, states in “Toben Grabbed: International Hate Laws Bite Down”1 that “Every American, especially Christians, should protest this outrageous attack on freedom of speech. Although most Americans do not think like Dr. Toben, his arrest is just a taste of what will come—for Americans like you and your family—if we do not defend freedom now.”

In his article “Extradition Will Make Dr. Toben a Martyr,”2 author Chris Huhne, British Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, may be squeamish about Toben’s ideas, but he at least stands like a man for his civil liberties. He stated: “Dr Toben is accused in Germany but his offence is to post on an Australian website. Germany has taken on itself the role of censor, because of the capacity to download content in Germany. It is hard to see where such an attempt to extend jurisdiction might end, or what its chilling effects on freedom of speech might ultimately be.”

Indeed, if Dr. Toben gets deported to Germany, one can easily imagine how some day U.S. citizens changing planes in EU countries may also become vulnerable to jail time for expressing controversial opinions on the Internet. In fact, they may even get extradited from America without ever boarding a plane if current trends continue. Ominous indictors include Abu Ghraib torture, extraordinary rendition to places like Guantanamo, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, National Security Presidential Directive-51, domestic martial law exercises, and the proposed H.R. 1955 “Homegrown Terrorism and Violent Radicalization Act.” 3

In “Thanksgiving for Thought Crime,”4 Capt. Eric May noted that while proponents of H.R. 1955 claim that their purpose is “…nominally aimed against `terrorists,’ their real target is the Internet, which they conflate with everything from the militia movement, anarchism and anti-Semitism to Islamo-Fascism and terrorism.”

In “A Dawning Dictatorship?”5 Capt. May described how the White House prevented Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio from looking at secret annexes inside NSPD-51.
Lastly, consider the cases of Ernst Zundel 6 and Germar Rudolf. 7 Although both individuals were born in Germany, they were living in America with spouses who were American citizens before they got deported back to Germany and imprisoned for their publicly stated views on Holocaust revisionism. 8

. Two fundamental issues involved here are:
· The right of any individual to engage in scientific, rational inquiry on any issue.
· The preservation of national sovereignty to shield citizens from alien, irrational, or malevolent laws of foreign powers.

Regarding the first issue, consider Sylvia Stolz, a German defense lawyer who was prosecuted and imprisoned by a German court for zealously defending Holocaust revisionist Ernst Zundel. She accused the court of “fleeing the truth.” German free thinker Horst Mahler summed up this Orwellian affair as follows: “If Defendant A, who is charged with lying and must therefore be punished, presents evidence that he has told the truth, he is punished a second time, and this time his attorney is punished for defending him.”9

Regarding the national sovereignty issue, Huhne points out that: “Dr. Toben has not committed an offence under British law or indeed under the law of 17 of the 27 European Union member states.”10 He also describes how Belgium has asserted its sovereignty by balking at deportation orders issued by fellow EU nation Poland involving such issues as abortion and euthanasia.

Dr. Toben is a free thinker who has fearlessly explored other important issues besides Holocaust revisionism. He ran one of the first web sites to archive works by Capt. Eric May that exposed 9/11 as a likely CIA-Mossad inside job. May also suggested that petro-chemical explosions in the greater Houston area could be part of a dress rehearsal pattern for a repeated “9/11” terror event designed to justify war against Iran and domestic martial law.11

The Iconoclast subsequently showed its concern for the patterns identified by Capt. May in its editorial “Time to Investigate Houston is Now.”12

Dr. Toben also supported Capt. May’s exposure of the 10-12-2002 Bali bombing as a likely Asian version of “9/11” probably executed by Israel’s Mossad with passive or active support from elements of the CIA, MI-6, and Australian intelligence. The Australian government used this bombing as a pretext to pass repressive “anti-terror” laws and embroil itself along with the U.S. in Middle Eastern military adventures. Capt. May also views the March 11, 2004 Madrid and July 7, 2005 London bombings as more examples of false flag “terror fixes” designed to support the goals of certain interconnected power elites within America, Britain, and Israel. See more Capt. May archived at The Lone Star Iconoclast13 and also listed at America First Books.14

The latest news on Dr. Toben’s case can be found at Lady Michele Renouf’s web site.15 Another hearing will likely be held Nov. 11. This gives us additional time to mobilize global protest against this international outrage.

Please find more information on points of contact for protest in Rev Ted Pikes’ article “Toben Trial Delayed.”16 Please also see an overview of the general nature of thought crime threats in the Rev. Ted Pike archive.17
