Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

In the ongoing and ever-more-desperate attempts to get Ernst Zundel

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and shown several times in Canada and,
apparently, also in the United States.

conspiracy of "right wing extremists" around the world.  That's not a bad

"It did not take me long to figure out what they wanted to do; it was a
smear job of me. The hope was to paint me as some kind of international
'Svengali'-like character who basically was behind the 'Neo-Nazi Movement'
in Germany and if possible, in Canada as well.

"I knew that this program could be very dangerous to me, and at first I
refused to participate because the man who was to interview me in Canada
and while speaking in Europe would be an extreme leftist intellectual who
had even come to the defense of Pol Pot.
