Elie Wiesel attacked in SF

Elie Wiesel was attacked in an elevator in San Francisco by a Holocaust denier who has apparently been stalking him, according to a report in the San Francisco Examiner.

Nobel Prize-winning author Elie Wiesel was accosted recently by a Holocaust denier who dragged him from a hotel elevator and tried to force him into a hotel room to confront him about his writing, the San Francisco Examiner reported Friday.

The incident occurred last week in the Argent Hotel in San Francisco when an unidentified man entered the elevator with Wiesel and dragged him out on the sixth floor. The man fled when Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, screamed for help.

Particularly troubling is a boast published on an anti-Zionist website by someone identifying himself as "Eric Hunt" who wrote:
"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,"
"Hunt" admits attempted abduction, saying he wanted 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."
Hat tip: Jack Kemp (not the politician)

Update: Greg Richards adds:

The wisdom of Eisenhower
When the Allied Armies rolled into Germany and started uncovering the camps, Ike decided that (a) the troops should be shown the camps so "they can see what they are fighting against" and (b) the local Germans should be paraded through the camps so that their existence could not be denied at some future time.  Presicent.
