It’s time for Jews who are truly concerned for the survival of American Jewry and Israel to finally take a deep breath and stop signing donation checks to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). That former, vital and fearless Jewish defense group, now under the leadership of former President Obama aide, Jonathan Greenblatt has shamelessly joined other such worthless groups as HIAS, J Street, T’ruah, Jewish Voices for Peace and The National Council of Jewish Women, who still badger and beg their Jewish benefactors for cash while serving the interests of anti-Jewish causes and movements. We must consider these organizations “traif.”
But let’s for the time, focus on the giant ADL and Jonathan Greenblatt its leader, a true Leftist who, in a pro-BDS interview on February 1, 2019 with the LA Times, stated: “There are many people who get caught up in the BDS movement who are not anti-Semitic at all and who see it as a form of social protest.” Really? Name one. And just how can calling for the isolation and destruction of the Jewish State of Israel through BDS be viewed as speaking out for “racial justice?” And exactly, who is in need of justice and who is denying it? Was he implying and standing firm with HAMAS and the Palestinian Authority in their claims that Israel persecutes their people? Ask the next ADL speaker when one comes begging in your community.
The ADL also has patently and vigorously ignored the threats, vilifying words and actual physical attacks on Jews by blacks, their leaders and street thugs. After rightfully condemning black Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who defamed and accused Jews of buying our government’s foreign policies and that we have dual loyalty, Greenblatt crawled back to make nice to this Jew hater, proclaiming that Omar gave an “honest apology” and is “committed to a more just world.” And after another congressman of color, Hank Johnson (D-GA) referred to Jews as “termites,” the weak-kneed Greenblatt accepted the racist’s worthless apology, thusly: “We appreciated @RepHankJohnson’s clarification here.” The ADL never did ask this Black congressman if he understood that termites are routinely killed with gases and poisons? We do.
And then the ADL along with 600 other brain dead “Jewish” groups signed a full page ad in the NYT in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement that calls Israel a genocidal state, that supports the BDS movement that calls for our cops to be attacked and killed in the streets. How is that congruent with supporting Jewish values and lives? The ad (again ADL supported) reads: “We speak with one voice when we say, unequivocally–Black Lives Matter.”
We don’t have a crystal ball as where the ADL will stand with Biden’s new approach to renegotiating the Iran Deal. But when some Jewish Congressmen supported the original proposal and were rightfully verbally rebuked for doing so, the group coddled one of them, Jerrold Nadler, by stating that he suffered, “obscene and offensive comments.” Well, Mr. Greenspan, Congressman Nadler, in his very secure position and in supporting controversial and dangerous to Israel treaties and presidents, should have grown a thick skin long ago.
In conclusion, erase the ADL from your charitable donation list. Support others such as the publication you reading right now, The Jewish Voice as we serve as an indispensable megaphone for the undiluted truth about Israel. It’s time to clean house.
