Holocaust Survivor/Historian Eli Wiesel Stalked, Attacked By Holocaust Denier

Good Lord. The attack that actually occurred wasn't so bad: Eric Hunt, Nazi, seems to have "merely" grabbed him and attempted to pull him out of an elevator for an "interview."

But he seems have had more in mind, had he been successful in dragging Wiesel off: He wanted to kidnap him back to his hotel room to demand that Wiesel answer questions about the Holocaust, "truthfully." Read your own grim imaginings into what that would have included.

I'm guessing that Wiesel is anti-violence and so forth, but I hope he starts packing a gun.

In a bizarre attack, a well-known author and Holocaust scholar was dragged out of a San Francisco hotel elevator by an apparent Holocaust denier who reportedly had been trailing him for weeks.

Police escorted Elie Wiesel to San Francisco International Airport on Feb. 1 after a man accosted Wiesel in the elevator at the Argent Hotel, at 50 Third St., after Wiesel participated in a panel discussion at a peace conference and before Wiesel was scheduled to catch a flight back to New York.

...

Police confirmed this week that the attack took place and that officers escorted Wiesel to the airport following the attack. According to police, the suspect accosted Wiesel in the hotel elevator at around 6:30 p.m., saying he wanted to interview him. Wiesel said he would do the interview in the lobby. That’s when the attacker pulled him out of the elevator, police reported.

In a posting Tuesday on the anti-Zionist Web site ZioPedia, a writer using the name Eric Hunt takes credit for the attack: “After ensuring no women would be traumatized by what I had to do (I had been trailing Wiesel for weeks), I stopped the elevator at the sixth floor. I pulled Wiesel out of the elevator. I said I wanted to interview him.”

Wiesel grabbed at his chest and yelled for help, according to the posting. “I told him, ‘Why don’t you want people to know the truth?’ His expression changed, and he began screaming again. …” the posting reads. Police reported that the suspect tried to force Wiesel into one of the rooms, but ran away when Wiesel started yelling.

The online posting states that the writer intended to “bring Wiesel to my hotel room where he would truthfully answer my questions regarding the fact that his non-fiction Holocaust memoir, Night, is almost entirely fictitious.” Later in the posting, the Holocaust is portrayed as a “myth.”

Attempted kidnapping. Charge the shit out of him. Lock him away in prison forever where he can face his own shower-room "interviews."

Still Evil, But Now With 50% More Stupidity: Our built-in advantage against Neo-Nazis: They're so fucking submoronic they confess to kidnappings on their blogs.
