I have for years derided Jews in America and Jewish lay leadership for tolerating and supporting clear and present gangrenous enemies of the Jewish people among our senior ranks. It is the sickness of the soul. The liberal Jew worships at the church of human secularism. These lost souls are married to their liberal dogma.
One of the most odious of the flesh eating bunch, Abe Foxman, came out against a great and wonderful friend of the Jews, Rush Limbaugh. This is Poxman's MO: use the might and the soapbox of the Anti-Defamation League in an attempt to destroy friends and supporters of the Jewish people in order to garner favor with our enemies.
Abe Foxman is a plague on our people. Back in August of 2007, I demanded his resignation after his continual denials of the Armenian genocide. We, as a people, cannot condone such unspeakable silence. We, of all people, must never be silent about the systemic death of a people. This Islamic genocide was heinous and brutal. And considering the level of Islamic anti-semitism in the koran, hadiths, sunna, and siras, it would be healthy and good for living Jews (and all decent and good people) to pay heed and denounce roundly the Islamic genocide of the Armenian people.
But Abe Foxman not only would take that basic fundamental stand, but he went one step further. He fired Andrew Tarsy, the New England regional director, after he broke ranks with national ADL leadership and said the human rights organization should acknowledge the Armenian genocide that began in 1915.
Dr. Andrew Bostom said at the time, Foxman "apparently thinks that [he] can pick and choose among genocides....... In a telephone interview James Rudolph, the regional ADL chairman, called Tarsy an extraordinary leader. Indeed, Tarsy was acting in the best ADL tradition of trying to unite people of different ethnic groups, in this case Jews and Armenians, to promote human rights."
If the national ADL doesn't acknowledge the genocide, it is complicit in a cover-up.
Foxman has come out repeatedly against one of the greatest friends of the Jews and Israel, my friend the Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Foxman strongly condemned remarks Wilders made at a conference I spoke at and attended here. Here is what Wilders says about Israel and the Jewish people:
Ladies and Gentlemen, there is one country in our Western Civilization that has been forced to fight the forces of Jihad for its values since the very day of its existence: Israel the Canary in the Coal Mine. Let me say a few words about that wonderful country.
I had the privilege myself to live in Israel for a few years and since then I have visited that country many many times. Why? Because I love it, I do love Israel.
However, in Europe, being Pro-American, being Pro-Israel makes you an endangered species. Israel is a Beacon of Light in an area, the Middle East, that is pitch black everywhere else.
Israel is a Western Democracy, whilst Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and all the other countries in the region are medieval dictatorships. And the so -called Middle East conflict, as you all know it, is not about land at all. It's a conflict about, once again, about ideologies. It's a conflict and a battle between Islam and Freedom. It's not about some land in Gaza or Judea or Samaria, it's about Jihad.
To Islam the whole of Israel is occupied territory. They see Tel Aviv and Haifa as settlements as well, and I am very much in favor of a two state settlement solution but then the two state solution from Winston Churchill in 1921, when Palestine was partitioned into a Jewish and an Arab part, Arab Palestine, Ladies and Gentlemen, is now called Jordan and I think that Jordan is the Palestinian State.
Islam forces Israel to fight. Israel is not just fighting for itself, Israel is fighting for all of us, for the entire West, just like those brave American soldiers who landed in Sicily in 1943 and stormed the Normandy beaches in 1944.
Young Israeli men today, young Israeli Women today, are fighting for our freedom, are fighting for our civilization, and like Bosnia, like Kosovo, like Nigeria, like Sudan, like the Caucasus, like Kashmir, like Southern Thailand, like Western China and the South of the Philippines, Israel is situated exactly on the dividing line between Dar al -Islam, the Islamic World and Da al-Harb the non-Islamic World. It is no coincidence that it is precisely this dividing line, where blood is flowing and war is raging in many many areas.
And, we have to get rid of that politically correct fallacy that it is all about separate conflicts, it's not. Let us please allow ourselves at least to see the big picture, which is, that all those conflicts, have to do with Jihad, Jihad in the spirit of Mohammed. Ladies and Gentlemen, Europe ought to fully back Israel to the hilt and (???help) us fight against those that threaten it, whether it's Hezbollah, whether it's Hamas, or Nuclear Iran. Also, because of it's history, Europe has certainly the moral duty and obligation to prevent at all cost, another Holocaust against the Jewish people.
Foxman should be banned from entering Israel. Who empowers these terrible Jews? Who?
Back in 2006, as a newly minted blogger, I took Foxman out for his attacks on our dear and precious friends of Israel, the Evangelicals:
Now, did you hear the one about the Jew who dropped his watch in the subway tracks but decided to look for it on the platform because it was easier? His name is Abe Foxman, and he's officially given up on the ADL's mission. For those who didn't read between the lines of Foxman's recent attack on Evangelical Christians, it was a surrender of even the semblance of being relevant in the age of jihad, and a way back to fixating on bogeymen in America.
According to a recent Jewish Week article, Foxman said, "It is time to start naming names and judging the motives of leading conservative Christian groups, and not simply respond to their specific policy initiatives."
.......if Hitler were running as a gun-control Democrat today, he'd get the Jewish vote.
Caroline Glick said of Foxman back in 2006,
RATHER THAN stand with the Catholic church as Benedict moves boldly against radical Islam, American Jewish leaders led by ADL Director Abe Foxman have been attacking the church for its theological decisions. Last year, fresh from his bitter campaign against Mel Gibson's movie about Jesus, Foxman began targeting the Vatican for its decision to permit wider use of the traditional Latin Mass which includes a prayer for Jews to convert to Christianity.
Foxman came out in support of the Islamic school in Brooklyn whose principal was forced to resign because of her involvement in antisemitic Intifada NYC tee shirts (here).
He demonizes the Christian groups that love Israel but is kissing the ass of Islamic jihad. Got that?
Back in December 2009, a vocal and leading Jewish voice, Charles Jacobs, penned a searing indictment of traitorous Jewish diaspora leadership, criticizing the Anti-Defamation League and its head, Abraham Foxman, for its inadequate response to these existential threats. "In truth, it is not only the ADL that is failing: Few Jewish leaders and almost no mainstream organizations have alerted our community that we face a radically new and potentially existential threat profile".
Should Jews not expect Foxman - and our other leaders - to level with us? To tell us what they know - about the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into our communities and about the proliferation of radical mosques across America, and about the intimidation of Jewish students by Muslims on campuses?
As a passionate, proud Jew, I stand with Rush Limbaugh and would take up against Foxman in a heartbeat. What Jews support these deleterious characters? What Jews give blood money to these bloody self hating wretches? Jewish donors don't give me a dime, but this son of a bitch gets tens of thousands -- hundreds of thousands, perhaps?
As for Rush, he is beyond delicious. He has such a yiddische heart, I'd marry him under a chupa :).
Today Norman Podhoretz, whom I rarely cite, as his capitulation on Gaza and other existential matters of grave concern to the Jewish people have been most damaging, has called Foxman out on the kapo Abe's denunciation of Rush Limbaugh as an anti-semite.
It is Foxman who is the anti-semite, and if I were in the same room as he, I'd spit in his face.
Thank G-d for righteous Gentiles like Rush.
In the course of describing and agreeing with the book the other day, Rush Limbaugh cited a few of the numerous reasons for the widespread puzzlement over the persistence of liberalism within the American Jewish community. And while discussing those reasons, he pointed to the undeniable fact that for “a lot of people”--prejudiced people, as he called them twice--the words “banker” and “Wall Street” are code words for "Jewish." Was it possible, he wondered, that Obama’s attacks on bankers and Wall Street were triggering a certain amount of buyer’s remorse within the American Jewish community, which gave him 78% of its vote? Finally, taking off from my observation that many Jewish liberals like to call themselves independents, he wondered whether a fair number of the self-described independents who deserted Obama and voted for Scott Brown might actually have been Jewish liberals. If so, he concluded, Brown’s “victory could be even more indicative of an even bigger change in the political temper of the country than has so far been recognized.”
For this, Rush Limbaugh has been subjected to a vile attack by Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League. Of course, Mr. Foxman has a long history of seeing an anti-Semite under every conservative bed while blinding himself to the blatant fact that anti-Semitism has largely been banished from the Right in the past forty years, and that it has found a hospitable new home on the Left, especially where Israel is concerned. This makes Foxman a perfect embodiment of the phenomenon I analyze in "Why Are Jews Liberals?" Now Foxman has the chutzpah to denounce Rush Limbaugh as an anti-Semite and to demand an apology from him to boot. Well, if an apology is owed here, it is the national director of the Anti-Defamation League who should apologize for the defamatory accusation of anti-Semitism that he himself has hurled against so loyal a friend of Israel as Rush Limbaugh.
