    The comparison of the separation wall in Israel with the Warsaw ghetto walls is obsene. The walls of the Warsaw ghetto were used to contain the Jewish population for extermination. The separation wall in Israel is to Jews, Arabs and other Israeli residents from terrorist infilitrators intent on committing murder. The impetus to complete the wall was the wave of terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians during the last so-called Intifada. One wall was to commit murder; the other to prevent it. How sick and convoluted must this man's aged mind be to compare the two? It is an insult to the tens of thousands of Jews who were starved and murdered by the Nazis in the ghetto and those who were transported to death camps to be gassed and burned in the ovens of Aushwitz. I have been a sociologist in the USA since the early 1970's, and I have never read of any appreciable contribution by this man to the profession. His name carries no weight or credibility in the professional community; and his views resemble those of the Poles that aided the Nazis in the mass murder of Jews in his lifetime.
