Evidence CSIS Plotted with the U.S. to Return Zundel to Canada?
Dear Free Speech Supporter:

Ingrid Rimland, Ernst Zundel's wife, was told by an American official that Mr. Zundel was ordered deported and handed over to the Canadians, February 19, 2003, as a quid pro quo. CSIS has had a longstanding grudge against Mr. Zundel. Furthermore, CSIS, according to Andrew Mitrovica's book Covert Entry (available from CAFE for $45 postpaid) knew a pipebomb was being sent to Mr. Zundel in May, 1995, and warned its mail-opening agents, but did nothing to warn Mr. Zundel, the Post Office or Air Canada. Apparently, CSIS wanted Mr. Zundel back in Canada to punish him for his political views. The Americans, apparently, wanted Maher Arar, a Syrian-born Canadian suspected to ties with al Qaeda. The Americans turned over Ernst Zundel. CSIS tipped off the Americans about Arar's travels. He was arrested in the U.S. deported to Syria and, by his account, tortured.

Until recently, this account may have had little but circumstantial evidence to support it. However, along comes a group called the Libertarian Socialist News . On their website, March 6, they posted the following:

"Intercepted CSIS / CIN Emails -- [Bill: And for those who want a laugh, I just called the director of the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service's Immigration Department on his private, secure, "intelligence" cell phone -- I forget his name, something French (Egon or Etienne or something -- I couldn't understand him) -- and told him we have all the secret, intelligence-related, internal emails he has ever written about Ernst Zundel and will be releasing them on the internet in the near future. He got a bit upset when I began reading some of these emails to him. It was quite amusing. I love French Canadians when they are real upset because they are absolutely unintelligible ...
A comrade forwarded on today all the internal Candian Security and Intelligence Service and Canadian Immigration Service emails that have been sent regarding Zundel in the past four years and so, and they demonstrate that the CSIS conspired to strip Ernst Zundel of his rights in Canada and leave him a man without a country, as well as set him up for this ridiculous proceeding and otherwise anatagonize him. We will be publishing several of these emails in the coming weeks. Here's the first one. ;-D ]

Thanks Sheila.

Claudette, I am not sure if you will see Dan Cadman or someone else in INS in Washington. If possible, could you ask them to confirm if Ernst Christoff Zundel (24 July 1939, Germany) is in fact an Alien Resident of US now, as per info from Service and in media. He was landed in Canada in 1958 but has been denied CC as you knoq. If we can confirm his US residence we may be able to strip him of his PR in Canada. Many thanks, Ian

fyi. This info is from CSIS and also "Solicitor-client privilege". It might be a good idea to get the confirmation from your US contacts.

Yaron,

Just a quick heads-up. I received a letter from CSIS Legal Counsel, Murray Rodych, which indicates that Mr Zundel has moved to the United States where he now resides permanently with his wife. This may provide CIC with grounds for potential enforcement action under s. 24 of the Immigration Act.

Certainly, if authentic, these e-mails provide strong evidence of CSIS's interest in causing Mr. Zundel grief after his departure to the U.S.

Re: CSIS Internal Security Compromised ?

Dear Mr. Makin,
Thank you for the one of the few reasonably objective commentaries on Ernst Zundel's continued imprisonment.
( http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/ArticleNews/TPStory/LAC/20040306/ZUNDEL06/Comment/Idx )

As one of the persons named in the CSIS unclassified "summary" re: Zundel, I have some interest in following this case. Yesterday I noticed a posting at http://www.overthrow.com/lsn/news.asp?articleID=6812 that purports to be a partial release of CSIS/CIC secret, intelligence-related, internal emails regarding Ernst Zundel.

It appears someone forwarded a large collection of emails to Bill White (Overthrow.com). If real, this could prove to be an enormous embarassment for CSIS (which prides itself on having 'security' expertise) because it could mean that CSIS has been penetrated by a 'mole/spy' who managed to collect 4 years of email regarding Ernst Zundel.

If this person managed to collect CSIS/CIC email regarding Zundel, it is highly likely that they also managed to collect CSIS/CIC secret, intelligence-related, internal e-mails regarding other persons or topics as well.

Or.. it could mean that the much vaunted CSIS 'security' expertise has been severely compromised by an outside hacker. Perhaps one of the CSIS agents PC's has a keyboard logger/trojan installed on it and is being accessed remotely by a hacker.

Either way, there is tremendous potential for an investigative reporter to get a really interesting story here. Perhaps you would be interested in following up this lead?

Sincerely,

--Bernard Klatt

Mr. Klatt reports further: "I did do Google searches on all the CSIS/CIC names mentioned and they are definitely real. The attached Word document is what I found via Google and contains the fixed up email addresses for the agents. The stuff posted on Overthrow.com contains spelling errors and most of the agents email addresses are incomplete. The last 5 characters (@CINA) needs to be expanded to ( CINA.CIC.GC.CA ) to form a valid email address.

I see Paul Yurack sent the following email to ybb Yaron suggesting "grounds for potential enforcement action under s. 24 of the Immigration Act." The first name "Yaron" is a distinctly Israeli/Jewish male name. Is it too late for Peter Lindsay to attempt to determine the identity of this "Yaron" individual? Is there some reason CIC counsel Yurack, needs to be emailing an Israeli/Jewish person regarding Zundel?

If ybb Yaron is on staff at CSIS or Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), there should be a reasonable apprehension of bias due to his apparent Israeli/Jewish identity. Or.. is ybb Yaron someone on staff at the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Simon Weisenthal Centre, B'nai Brith, or the Israeli embassy, etc..? If so, why is Yurack e-mailing him about Zundel?"

Section 24 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act states: "A foreign national who, in the opinion of the officer, is inadmissible or does not meet the requirements of this Act, becomes a temporary resident if an officer is of the opinion that it is justified in the circumstances." It would appear that Paul Yurack may have contemplated that, by a given date, Mr. Zundel might have lost his landed immigrant status, and, therefore, be subject to much more arbitrary measures.

All this bears questioning in Court.
