JavaScript toGMTString convertion to SimpleDateFormat

Hi!

I'm getting an string like this: "Sun, 25 Mar 2007 13:36:54 GMT".
This string comes from another software created with JavaScript and uses Date.toGMTString() method.
I want to get an java.util.Date using this code:

SimpleDateFormat FORMAT = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE, d MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss z");
Date D = FORMAT.parse("Sun, 25 Mar 2007 13:36:54 GMT");
System.out.println(D);

And I'm continuous getting "Unparseable date". Why?

Thanks! :D
