I SAW HORSES VOMIT
Below is a letter written by Germar Rudolf to his “friends.” It refers to how he is fighting his extradition to Germany to serve five years, or longer, in a German prison for thought crimes.
Rudolf, who studied chemistry at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, discovered that the gas-chamber stories are so trashy that they are unbelievable. He said so, and he documented his findings in The Rudolf Report , after which the German state turned against him.
In Hunting Germar Rudolf he tells the story of how the State prosecuted him, and the adventures of a radical who fled to Spain to avoid prison. When law was introduced in Spain to persecute those who question the gas-chamber fraud, Rudolf fled to Britain. When word came to him that he might be extradited from England to Germany, he fled to the U.S. Now he faces what he faces. Such is the state of intellectual freedom in the West.
Germar’s English is not perfect. I have not edited it.

Last week I received the final decision of the INS Board of Appeals regarding my case: They simply refused to look at it and confirmed the decision by the INS court “without opinion”.
The decision of the INS court was handed down in summer 2003: They claim I filed a frivolous application, resulting in: involuntary departure (=in handcuffs to Germany), banned for a lifetime (I can never return to the US), and no remedy (not even my current marriage or anything else can change that). This verdict is similar to what Ernst Zündel faced in February 2003.
We now have to file an appeal to a Federal Court until early December. There is a slim chance that this court will refuse to hear my case as well. If that happens, I will be in a German dungeon early next year. In case they do hear my case, they will probably decide later next year. Whether it will result in a chance of having a remedy (my marriage) needs to be proven. Theoretically they have to throw all due process laws into the dust bin to deny me that right, because legally speaking I was sentenced for a crime (frivolous application = forgery of evidence) of which I was neither accused during the trial, nor does the verdict claim to have any evidence for it.
To compare what the INS has done with a penal parallel: They accused me of theft during the trial, but in the written verdict they suddenly sentenced me for murder, without even claiming that there is any evidence that I murdered anyone. But it would not be the first time that courts break the law in order to do exactly that: getting rid of revisionists. I therefore do not have too many illusions.
Since all of my IDs have expired, I sit in a trap here without another chance to go elsewhere. So if that appeal to the Federal Court fails, the worldwide productivity of revisionism will go down 90% for five years to come (I hope they put all of my thought crimes into one case, or otherwise it may result in ten years plus…).
During the next several days I will get in touch with some of you in order to make sure, that my website and all other vital life signs of revisionism as created by me keep buzzing should I go lop-sided.

Yesterday morning I telephoned Germar to ask if he had any new information on the case. He didn’t. I asked him what his sense of the matter was, how he felt, inwardly, about what was going to happen with him.
“I don’t know,” he said. “But I’ve seen horses vomiting.”
“I saw horses vomiting.”
And then we were both laughing. I understood what he was saying. I had never heard the expression before, but I understood it. The image is unique, and unique to German, I should think. There’s nothing like it in English, or in Spanish for that matter. The image stays and stays in my mind. It is both comic and gripping.
May the gods be with Germar Rudolf.
