Following Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe's, comparison between President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair to Hitler and Mussolini, the Anti-Defamation League released a strong condemnation.
"Must we allow these men, the two unholy men of our millennium, who in the same way as Hitler and Mussolini formed an unholy alliance, to form an alliance to attack an innocent country?" said Mugabe while speaking in Rome at the sixtieth anniversary meeting of the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, deplored Mugabe's comments, saying, "This man starves and suppresses his own people. His shameful exploitation of Nazism and the Holocaust during his speech in Rome is the act of a demagogue who utterly disdains the values of tolerance and democracy."
