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.
