10 January 2015

In June 2014 the Supreme Court of Victoria made a press release to make sure that the notoriety of this author/artist and my co-exhibitor in a 2009 art exhibition would be disseminated far and wide. The screenshot from the Supreme Court website (below) is from the evening of the ruling. IT IS SELF-EVIDENT THAT THE COURT SOUGHT TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF MYSELF AND MY CO-EXHIBITOR.

When we arrived at the Supreme Court to hear Kyrou hand down his verdict, journalists were already seated in wait. Somehow a case that had been avoided by the media throughout its entirety was suddenly considered to be an important event that required their attendance. Kyrou's "finding" was reported on most of the media throughout all of Australia, on the internet, on the radio and in print (screenshots of on-line reportage below) and resulted in people, with whom we had never discussed the issue, referring to our "notoriety". Mission Accomplished. Well done Supreme Court of Victoria and Emilios Kyrou (Αιμίλιος Κύρου).


when the Christian racist Hitler met the Muslim racist al Husseini

The big problem for the Supreme Court of Victoria was, and will for ever remain, that the judgement pertained to an historical event: Hitler's support for the Muslims of Palestine in the Muslim quest to make "extinct" the Jews of Palestine, which had nothing to do with my exhibition in 2009, but which I was forced to address by the owner of a gallery I had exhibited my works in.

In that exhibition Islam was criticised. So too however was Christianity, Judaism, Zoroastrianism (as well as Hinduism, criticised by my co-exhibitor, Lee-Anne Raymond).

The director, Robert Cripps (who now runs an entertainment venue, Ruby's Music Room) claimed that the criticism of Islam was both "racist", and aided the "Jews and their state in Palestine". Without a solitary reference to "Palestine" or Israel, Cripps associated criticism of Islam with being an act beneficial to Jews and their cause.

It is hardly unknown that "Palestine" was a Nazi cause, that it was pursued by Nazis like al Husseini, who himself was supported by Adolf Hitler, and it was pursued prior to the existence of Israel.

It was this "comparison to Hitler", or "likening to Hitler" (as it was reported by the media outlets), that Kyrou, the judge, proclaimed as having "no basis in fact" AND WHICH AUSTRALIA'S JOURNALISTS REPORTED VERBATIM.

Unfortunately, notoriety does not always go the way one or another party wants it to.


Not everyone is oblivious to history as is the Supreme Court of Victoria and its judges. However, the court is an institution that is given power without checks or balances.

Kyrou's "finding" was that the contents of my email to Cripps, which is essentially the material on this page, and which the court itself has published on Austlii, as being the evidence that proves the court's finding against me. The court itself has made this email available to readers throughout the world, claiming that the historical record is "subjective" belief. My email includes photos from the Bundesarchiv (which the trial transcripts have as "Gundezaki"). Though absent from Austlii's online publication, the images in that email were included in the printed copy of Kyrou's finding.

Adolf Hitler is very well known for his support of the cause of “Palestinians”. A multiplicity of tomes exist on the subject. I will refer to only one here:

the conflict in Palestine is muslim and was supported by nazis
(above, cover of:
Nazis, Islamists, and the making of the modern Middle East, Rubin, Schwanitz
The "Palestine" cause is known to be a doctrinal call of Islam and that this was supported by Nazis. The evidence for this is both incontrovertible and overwhelming.

The notoriety the Supreme Court of Victoria/Emilios Kyrou courted and sought, resulted in a book published in Israel as well, where the history that Kyrou claimed has "no basis in fact" is actually known. Suddenly a matter that no-one had heard about has drawn international attention courtesy of the Supreme Court of Victoria. An entire chapter of this book is about that which Emilios Kyrou proclaimed has "no basis in fact".

Supreme Court of Victoria: Notoriety of its own making. Any prospect of a fair trial?

The outcome is being appealed, and it is being appealed in the same court that sought to make an example of myself and co-exhibitor, the same court that found that actual history has "no basis in fact", and ruled that antisemitism is not actually antisemitism.

Notoriety, bullshit and BLOWBACK.

Notoriety, as we all know, is not going to prevent anyone getting a fair trial, or prevent one getting an unprejudiced appeal by that court, as Kyrou himself has ruled on this in a previous (and unrelated) trial (below).

In my experience, the less well known or noticed the matter was, the worse the trial outcome that resulted. Notoriety of itself might cause a more considered judgement. Who knows? Logic is not something the law deals with very well.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"A. L. Goodhart, Professor at Oxford, opposed the view that, because the judges were appointed by the victors, the Tribunal was not impartial and could not be regarded as a court in the true sense. He wrote:
Attractive as this argument may sound in theory, it ignores the fact that it runs counter to the administration of law in every country. If it were true then no spy could be given a legal trial, because his case is always heard by judges representing the enemy country. Yet no one has ever argued that in such cases it was necessary to call on neutral judges. The prisoner has the right to demand that his judges shall be fair, but not that they shall be neutral. As Lord Writ has pointed out, the same principle is applicable to ordinary criminal law because 'a burglar cannot complain that he is being tried by a jury of honest citizens.[76]"


And so, as I write this, some pious Muslims, not "Islamists" or "extremists" (refer ICV) have just killed a number of Jews in Paris, because they set out to "punish" cartoonists from Charlie Hebdo (whom they had already killed). Apparently, because the cartoonists, not the Jews, had drawn caricatures of Mohammad (as well as other non-Muslim religious figures), the Jews had to be targeted.

The Jews killed had nothing to do with the cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo, but as in my case where the judge with the full weight of the Supreme Court of Victoria behind him, proclaimed, any form of negative criticism of Islam equates as an act beneficial to Jews, Jews were killed as a consequence.

In France these pious Muslims claimed criticism of Islam somehow constituted support for Jews and Palestine, a claim made against us in 2009 simply for having criticised Islam.

My essays of 2009 criticised specific passages from the Koran, the Old Testament, and New Testament. There was no "mockery", this was not caricatures that ridiculed. However, like Nazi Germany, my art was declared to be degenerate art ("offensive") by the Supreme Court of Victoria, where being a surrealist, which means being an atheist, was in true Nazi fashion, declared to constitute support for a Jewish aim, which permitted a court to destroy me because of an "association" with Hitler, which was nothing more than my knowing the actual history, but a history that the court has deemed unlawful to mention.

The Supreme Court of Victoria has made ALL of my art unlawful.  

More discussion? (potentially even an appeal technically exposes the law to "scandal")

Ultimately Australia's courts are protected by lese majeste law; a blasphemy law, based on the "divine right" of the monarch to rule based on James' "Βασιλικον Δωρον" and on whose behalf the courts exist. Any law that seeks to protect truth being exposed because truth harms reputation is contrary to the Human Rights of the citizen which this nation has pledged to protect. When truth harms reputation, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE LAW. When laws exist to protect the court from the same laws that the rest of us are answerable to there is a problem.

Can the Law police itself? I believe that it cannot, especially since it was the court itself that courted the extensive media coverage to make an example of me, though there are examples that sometimes the court does police itself. I will wait and see.

Magistrate rebuked for 'inexplicable' application refusal
December 26, 2014

"In taking the rare step of awarding costs against the Magistrates Court of Victoria, Justice Michael McDonald said Mr Bentley's conduct in "purporting to rule on the appropriateness of diversion, when no such application was before him and he was being legitimately challenged upon his ability to do so, is inexplicable".
In awarding costs, Justice McDonald said a superior court might be prepared to regard even an astounding blunder in a matter of substantive law as not exhibiting gross ignorance in a sense necessary to justify an award of costs.
"However, when one is concerned not with some ordinary rule of substantive law but with a fundamental principle concerning procedural fairness or natural justice, the inferior court may be held not be excused by its own ignorance," he said.

In his judgment, Justice McDonald said the notation on the court file would be expunged ...
Justice McDonald said that there was simply no capacity for (Mr Bentley) of his own motion to be considering an application for a diversion program."



A belief is not the equivalent to a logical corollary. And, a logical corollary is not "an opinion". Australia's judiciary conflate these concepts and deem them to be of the same meaning.
