I enclose for your consideration a copy of my letter of 30Apr2000 to Irving Abella, Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) War Crimes Committee Chair — the man that you had on your 60 Minutes story (of February 1997, if I am not mistaken) to back up the claim being made by Steven Rambam that he had been able to tape confessions from several Nazi war criminals hiding in Canada.
As you will be able to read in that enclosed letter, Steven Rambam's credentials are so questionable that one would expect you to credit anything he said only after rigorous verification, which I wonder if you in fact performed, as it is beginning to look like Rambam's taped confessions amount to nothing usable in any court of law, and nothing publishable either by himself or by the CJC. The impression that is left is that 60 Minutes was duped into playing a supporting role in another of the fraudulent publicity stunts that Canadian Jewish leaders, with the heavy involvement of the CJC, have become notorious for here in Canada, among which are the following half dozen.
1. Littman-Blumenthal Mengele Scare
2. Littman-Wiesenthal Thousands of War Criminals Scare
3. Commemorating the Deschênes Commission
4. Rambam-Abella Fifty Confessions
5. Rambam-CJC Guaranteed Flip
6. Abella-CJC Neal Sher Will Show Us How Hoax
Your treatment of the topic of Nazi war criminals confessing to Steven Rambam is somewhat reminiscent of Morley Safer's treatment of the topic of anti-Semitism in Ukraine in his Ugly Face of Freedom — both cases consist of a Jewish journalist throwing out the window the competence and integrity that he might normally exercise on topics in which he was less emotionally entangled, and regressing to broadcasting Jewish stereotypes in support of which he can point to only the flimsiest of evidence.
