Palestinian Group Protests Use of 'Nazi' Label

December 03, 1989

So, actor James Woods calls protesters of Yitzhak Shamir's policies towards Palestinians "Nazis," and receives cheers from the 1,000 guests at the Simon Wiesenthal Center's national tribute dinner. How sad and ironic that supporters of a Museum of Tolerance would respond enthusiastically to such an inaccurate classification by Woods. Such statements do nothing but add fuel to the fire of an already volatile situation. It's unfortunate that such a fine actor cannot use a podium more constructively.
