How the mighty have fallen

I used to be a supporter of the ADL, mostly because as a Jew it was my responsibility to make sure the phrase "Never again" continuously echoed across the land. Now it seems the ADL has changed it's slogan to mean "Never again will we stand for the rights of Jews in America to defend themselves from their enemies, but will actively work to support the enemies of all free peoples: Islam"

I am done, there is no reason to support an organization actively working towards my demise.

From The American Thinker November 13 by William A. Levinson

Anti-Defamation League Has Strayed from Its Charter

The Anti-Defamation League's original charter is simple, straightforward, and honorable:

The immediate object of the League is to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people. Its ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike and to put an end forever to unjust and unfair discrimination against and ridicule of any sect or body of citizens.

Nowhere does this call for the ADL to shield Barack Obama from the consequences of his policies toward Israel and other allies of the United States. The "National Pledge for Unity on Israel," which the ADL cosponsored with the American Jewish Committee, is but the most recent example of how this organization has lost touch with the very reason for its existence.

U.S.-Israel friendship should never be used as a political wedge issue. At a time when Israel is confronting new dangers and challenges in a fast changing Middle East, the United States must continue to project to the world the solid support of the American people and their elected representatives for Israel's rights and quest for peace and security. U.S. leadership in the efforts to achieve an agreement resolving the conflict that results in two states--the Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state, living side by side in peaceful coexistence--is more critical than ever.

The fact that "President Obama today [May 19] backed pre-1967 borders as the basis for negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians on the contours of an eventual peace deal" encourages terroristic violence ranging from the slaughter of the Fogel family to acts of war including the launch of Grad rockets against Israel. The statement that the pre-1967 borders are the basis for negotiations tells the Palestinians openly that they can kill as many civilians as they want, fire as many rockets and mortar shells as they want, and break as many truces as they want without the prospect of having land concessions taken off the table forever.

The Arabs' provocation or initiation of three wars while Israel was inside its 1967 borders proves meanwhile that Israel's "occupation" of Gaza, Samaria, and Judea is not and never was the root cause of the region's violence. This Palestinian video that declares Tel Aviv part of "Palestine" reinforces this obvious conclusion. The deluded idea that Israel's surrender of any of this territory will bring peace therefore underscores the disconnection from reality of those that promote it, including the ADL, as shown above. This should indeed be a 2012 campaign issue that, especially in combination with similar behavior toward the United Kingdom, underscores Mr. Obama's lack of fitness for his job.

Unfortunately Progressive rabbi's and self hating Jews often support the so called "Palestinian" cause, much to the detriment of Israel and the future of the Jewish people.
Many Christians have also bought into the lie of the "Oppressed Palestinian and the "Evil Jewish Occupiers".
If Israel gave up ALL of its land, with the exception of 1 tiny house located somewhere in the farthest desert in a remote and isolated corner of the Jewish nation, the Arabs would continue to fight until they finally killed the last remaining Jew.
Their "Holy Book" REQUIRES them to kill Jews.
The Arabs will never be satisfied.
I can never understand why the world doesn't understand this?
Long life, victory, and peace to G_d's Chosen People!

The Anti-Defamation League is one of Israel's best friends, smearing anyone who criticizes it in any way as a racist. It has been found guilty of illegal spying, giving information to apartheid South Africa as well as apartheid Israel, and constantly hypes up 'white supremacy' to distract us from its own Jewish racism. It opposes the first amendment on behalf of a foreign power, viz attempting to get Pacifica Forum banned at the UofO.
