    -What about the ill-fated comparison with Austria, a country that is not threatened with annihilation but that never came to terms with its Nazi past? Knowing Austria quite well, I am disgusted. - I think Mr Levy's analogy was precise. On the basis of Lieberman's statements, he is a kind of mirror image of Joerg Haider, an extremist, whose bid for power suffered a severe setback when the EEC threatened sanctions against Austria, and made Haider Persona Non Grata. Idem with Kurt Waldheim, one of the men responsible for killing those extraordinary Saloniki Jews of whom Primo Levi wrote so movingly. Once the facts came out, not only Europe, but even the USA declared him Persona non Grata. If I recall, the only place where he managed to wheedle a visit was the Vatican. Gideon Levy's point is that in the case of these Austrian figures, strong pressure from outside (EEC) did what the Austrian electorate could not do. Idem with a prospective Lieberman as PM of Israel.
