[Added 14 Feb 2009. APOLOGY. This article has actually a VERY RELEVANT connection with the scientific issues usually reviewed here. This is because Dr Pascal DIETHELM and Dr Martin McKEE have recently published a scientific peer-reviewed study paralleling the denial of Environmental Tobacco Smoke-induced diseases with that of the Jewish Holocaust perpetrated by Germans: in other words, a Tobaccaust. The two public health scientists name this crime “denialism”.
So, in its turn, the Observatory issued a warning to those who denied the existence of the recent Phosphocaust of a Palestinian population (1.5 million individuals) imprisoned in a concentration camp. Against these modern denialists, prestigious Jewish personalities (among them professors in universities and survivors’ [sons and daughters] of the Jewish Holocaust) have voiced their strongest disgust (see below).

[NOTE ABOUT A MORAL DUTY: This article has obviously no connection with the scientific issues we usually review here. However, the ongoing massacre - to which the "western" medias are a party of by virtue of their silence -, reminds all of us that we are human beings so we must leave everything aside to relay the emergency calls against the USraeli barbarity (*). We would do the same in any similar case: when a population is parked in a concentation camp, deprived of food and water and then shelled]
(*) not to mention the "green light" from the now Atlantist European Union and the so-called ""moderated" Arab States" (and the criminal closure of the Egyptian-Palestinian border)

Southward, ethics has always kept intact: "Venezuela expelled the ambassador to Israel on Tuesday in protest over the offensive in Gaza only hours after leftist President Hugo Chavez called the attacks a Palestinian "holocaust...

During the same period, Evo Morales, president of Bolivia, has severed diplomatic ties with Israel.
Leaving the Zionist Ghetto: an interview of Avraham/Avrum BURG (Ari Shavit, Haaretz: June 8, 2007)
Quote: "Ahad Ha'am made the charge against Herzl that his whole Zionism had its source in anti-Semitism. He thought of something else, of Israel as a spiritual center - the Ahad Ha'am line has not died, and now its time has come. Our confrontational Zionism vis-a-vis the world is disastrous."
True Torah Jews against Zionism:
"Just as Jews would not be held responsible in a conflict between North Korea and South Korea, Jews should not be held responsible for the Zionists decisions and conflicts. The State of Israel has as much to do with Jews and Judaism as does China or Mongolia"

"...severely condemned Zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology" (August 1975).
Only Bush was able to change all this…
