DEFENDING THE WEST
Jewicidals doing the work of jihadists
Exclusive: Pamela Geller accuses ADL of 'covering for annihilationists'
The notorious Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is taking a break from denouncing Joan Rivers, Seth MacFarlane and Glenn Beck and is actually condemning, although timidly, the vicious Jewish blood libel running on ads that are sponsored by American Muslims for “Palestine” (AMP) – but not before denouncing our American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) counter campaign (which I wrote about in my Monday column). The Anti-Defamation League denounced us despite the fact that ours is the only truly effective response to the Nazi-like tactics of American Muslim groups that are on a jihad against the Jews.
The ADL is outraged by the repulsive anti-Semitic ads AMP is running and by the fact that the Islamic supremacists unveiled these ads as Passover began. The ADL issued a statement about the anti-Semitic ads: “Their ad campaign ignores the complicated nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and is part of the campaign to delegitimize and demonize the Jewish state. It shows a profound lack of sensitivity that they chose the first day of the Jewish holiday of Passover to announce this malicious and false ad campaign.”
They had to say something about the Nazi-like propaganda campaign against Israel to justify the millions of dollars they unjustifiably raise. This is an egregious anti-Semitic act, and if the ADL were silent, they would lose millions. So they make a feeble statement, while the Jews are actually left out to dry. What is that about “the complicated nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”? The war on the Jewish state is not at all complicated. There is nothing complicated about the Hamas charter; there is nothing complicated about the Islamic Jew-hatred that is commanded in the Quran; and there is nothing complicated about the 1,400 years of oppression, subjugation and persecution of Jews in Muslim lands.
There is nothing complicated about the refusal of the Muslims in Gaza and Judea and Samaria, and in Muslim countries around the world, to recognize the Jewish state. There is nothing complicated about the blood libels that have been manufactured throughout history to demonize and dehumanize the Jewish people. Such dehumanization leads to … genocide.
So here yet again, the ADL’s condemnation falls far short of what it should be. Why is the ADL covering for annihilationists?
Charles Jacobs and Ilya Feoktistov noted last year that the 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.”
Jacobs and Feoktistov point out that ADL leader Abraham 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.” The ADL does not have the back of those of us who are doing the heavy lifting in this ugly, dirty war. It attempts to marginalize pro-Jewish voices who might draw away their donors. But AFDI does more with a nickel than the ADL does with a million dollars, and their charade is becoming increasingly transparent to the Jewish community.
In line with that, the ADL attacked our earlier ads giving the number of Islamic jihad attacks since 9/11 (over 20,000 worldwide now), falsely claiming that the ads seemed to “stereotype an entire religion based on the acts of extremists.”
And in March 2012, Foxman charged that I am “in many ways no better than Farrakhan or Buchanan.” I am proud of my work as a patriot and a passionate Zionist; to be compared to Jew-haters by a man who styles himself a leader of the Jews is abominable. So now, defending free society from an ideology that makes war against free speech and equal rights for women and non-Muslims is “bigotry.” Defending Jews from an ideology that features a more deeply ingrained and violent anti-Semitism than any other in the world is “hatred.”
Read the rest. Go.
