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 and Sunnah, it would be healthy and good for
living Jews (and all decent and good people) to 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 ADL’s New England
regional director, after he broke ranks with national leadership and
said the human rights organization should acknowledge the Armenian
genocide that began in 1915. Dr. Andrew Bostom said at the time that 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.
Back in 2006, I took Foxman out for his attacks on those dear and precious friends of Israel, the Evangelical Christians. And Caroline Glick said this of Foxman that same year:
“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.”
Foxman also came out in support of the Islamic school in Brooklyn whose principal was forced to resign because of her involvement in anti-Semitic “Intifada NYC” t-shirts (see here).
See the pattern? Foxman demonizes Christian groups that love Israel but is kowtowing to the Islamic jihad.
Our Jewish leadership has failed us miserably. One only has to look
at the lack of response to Israel’s defensive action in Gaza last
winter to see the terrible situation we are in. We have failed the
Jewish youth, who haven’t a clue as to who we are and why we must fight
for our survival. I’ve attended anti-Israel rallies — the Muslim youth
come out in full jihad drag. It is an event, a destination. It is
theater. Jewish youth, by contrast, were conspicuously absent from
pro-Israel rallies. Why wasn’t Foxman in front of the curve on this?
Why wasn’t he helping to organize counter-protests against the Islamic
rallies calling for Jewish genocide? Why didn’t he rally the Jewish day
schools, Hebrew schools, synagogues, Christian Zionists, and all
friends of Israel to come together and march against this scourge?
We should be fiercely defending our right to fight for our survival.
We need proud, unapologetic, vigorous Jews to lead our people now.
