"The remarks from one of Arizona's best-known businessmen reflect the growing bitterness and fear among competitors, labor unions and others at the rapid expansion of Wal-Mart stores into their cherished domains. His comments also reflect what Wal-Mart has said is a tendency of critics to paint one of the country's most successful companies in the blackest light, calling it a cultural predator...Basha's words were the kind that Jewish community groups often object to, though Basha said he didn't literally mean Wal-Mart is made up of Nazis. He meant that its corporate tactics are wiping out small businesses and hurting workers."
