The ADL has “allied itself with right-wing forces in our country.” ADL chief Abraham Foxman soft-pedals his criticism of the religious right “in the name of solidarity toward Israel.” The ADL’s positions are “usually those of the liberal wing of the Democratic party”. Foxman fights those on the religious right so strenuously that maybe they “just won’t support Israel anymore”.
Criticizing the ADL is a popular sport irrespective of one’s political views. That’s particularly true if you want to shift attention from your own sins. The latest silly critique of the ADL comes from silly pundit Ann “Why can’t Jews be perfect like me?” Coulter.
The Anti-Defamation League is to Jews what the National Organization for Women is to women and the ACLU is to civil libertarians. They represent not Jews or women or civil libertarians, but the left wing of the Democratic Party.
Left, right, left… I’m dizzy.
