a fraud fit for... a prime minister?

a few days ago i blogged about the martin luther king hoax - the fabricated letter in which dr. king denounces anti-zionism as anti-semitism. today, in his disgraceful speech at the knesset's commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of auschwitz, prime minister ariel sharon cited the fake letter.

"Many of the manifestations of anti-Semitism in the past years are no longer aimed just at Jews as individuals. Rather, they are aimed at the embodiment of all Jews - the State of Israel, the Jewish state. As early as 1967, in A Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend, Dr. Martin Luther King wrote that anti-Zionism is no less than disguised anti-Semitism.

I quote, "The times have made it unpopular in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the case, the anti-Semite must constantly seek new forms and forums for his poison. He does not hate the Jews, he is just anti-Zionist! My friend, when people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews - make no mistake about it.""
