Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice president of the Council of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, says that Americans are being fooled if they think Mohammed ElBaradei is anything resembling the Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
Far from being a human rights leader, ElBaradei is a weak stooge of Iran, said Hoenlein, whose thinking is likely in league with that of other Israeli conservatives like current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"There is a myth being created that ElBaradei is a human rights activist," Hoenlein told the Orthodox Jewish site Yeshiva World News.
"He is a stooge of Iran, and i don't use the term lightly. When he was the head of the International Atomic Energy Agnecy, for which he got a Nobel Peace Prize, he fronted for them, he distorted the reports."
