For an example of the attacks on Mahmous Abbas see: http://cweb.jewishworldreview.com/0205/sher021705.php3
As Dan Yurman, the person who alerted me to this article notes, the authors seek to leverage outrage over documented Holocaust denial writings by Abbas to influence Jewish opinion about the talks.
They make no mention of Abbas' more recent retraction of his thesis argument. I do not think his retraction was all that it should have been but it merits mentioning if one is going to attack him. Unless, of course, one wants to only tell a portion of the story....
They challenge me to speak out. Obviously they have not seen History on Trial where I discuss Abbas' comments.
