Charles Jacobs calls on Abe Foxman to resignCharles Jacobs and Ilya Feoktistov of Americans for Peace and Tolerance accuse Anti-Defamation League director Abe Foxman of abandoning the fight against anti-Semitism to fight 'Islamophobia,' and urge Foxman to resign.
The Jewish community's largest "defense" organization, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), has adopted a policy, consistent with the progressive agenda, not to speak up much about the global tsunami of Muslim anti-Semitism, but instead to campaign against "Islamophobia." This while FBI statistics show that hate crimes against Jews in America are five times the number of hate crimes against Muslims. The rationale for this policy, as the ADL's chief, Abe Foxman, told the Boston Jewish Advocate, is that "[y]ou can't fight the fight against anti-Semitism without fighting against bigotry. ... You cannot ask people to stand with you unless you are ready to stand with them."According to the authors, Foxman is -- with precious sums of Jewish money meant to protect Jews from their foes -- doing the work of Jews' enemies. Read the whole thing.
But in cities across America, Foxman's policy has led the ADL to stand with people and organizations whose mission it is to defame and harm Jews. To defend its policy of "outreach," the Anti-Defamation League vigorously defames as "bigots" citizens who question radical Islamists' true aims.
I might add that the lines promoted by the Islamist organizations in that article sound remarkably like some of the comments on this blog.
