Washington, DC: It has been two weeks since Sterling Burnett - a senior fellow at the Exxon-backed National Center for Policy Analysis - compared Al Gore to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels on Fox News.

It has been nearly two weeks since one of the highest profile "skeptics" of global directly compared Al Gore to Adolf Hitler in the Washington Post.

"Vice President Gore's record of friendship to the Jewish community and Israel is exemplary," said National Jewish Democratic Council Executive Director Ira N. Forman. "These comparisons of Gore's admirable work on behalf of the environment to the unparalleled evil of the Nazis are obviously outrageous high profile smears of a good man. The Jewish community should react to these slurs with the vigor it typically displays when our political discourse is tainted by this type of rhetoric."
