    That's about twice the estimate that most reputable historians accept. (Highest figure I've seen is 54 million, but usually the one cited is closer to 30 million, for both North and South America combined.) Also, unlike the Shoah, the catastrophe which befell the Native Americans was NOT planned. The vast majority of Natives died due to disease... and Europeans did not understand how disease transmission took place. In fact, no one on Earth did for centuries. Besides, what does any of this have to do with denial of the Holocaust in the Islamic world as a way of de-legitimizing the modern state of Israel? I mean, have I overlooked something?... is anyone denying the demographic catastrophe in the New World as a result of the Columbian Exchange as a way of de-legitimizing the very existence of Venezuela, or Mexico or Peru or any other Latin American nation? Sadly, this is yet another example of how much of an ignorant clown (albeit a powerful one) Hugo Chavez is.
