Wiesel is simply “a terrible fraud.”

The professional holocaust salesman is at it again. This time in a full-page ad in today's New York Times (Sunday, April 18, 2010) about Jerusalem.
He's been out there guarding the status of world's greatest sufferers and victims for the Jews (Armenians, pfttt! Five milliion Congolese killed in ongoing massacres as we speak...kid stuff!) We, the Jews are the only ones who know about suffering...and I, that is, we, get a free pass to do anything we want.
Putting in his own two sheckels about objections to the accelerated ethnic cleansing carried out by Israel in Jerusalem, he rants about Jerusalem being only for Jews and no one else (here's a thumb in your eye Christians!).
He repeats the fake zionist historical narrative of exclusivity; and the outright lie that Palestinians have the right to live anywhere in east or west Jerusalem. Palestinians are being evicted from their homes, Palestinian neighborhoods are being claimed as Jewish based on forged deeds and fake archeology (look! we excavated a 3,000 year old can of King David Beer! This area is ours!).
And he lies about Muslims and Christians having access to their places of worship under Israeli rule. The opposite is happening with curfews, check-points, designation of Muslim shrines as being Jewish holy places, etc. Access is being made more difficult. But leave it to Weisel, he loves to make the victim the criminal.
This shameless reactionary has been a cheerleader for Bush's invasion of Iraq, he's waving the flag for attacking Iran, and can be expected to continue to crudely trade on the holocaust as an excuse to cover up any and all crimes committed by Israel, and also make a lot of money in the process.
