Rabbi Michael Lerner: ‘Shame on ADL’

August 5th · No Comments · Islam, Jewish, Muslim, The Palm Beach Post

I really enjoyed talking with Abraham Foxman during his annual visits with The Palm Beach Post editorial board. But you have to wonder if it isn’t time for fresh leadership at ADL national. In any event I agree with Rabbi Lerner, Tikkun Magazine editor, that the Anti-Defamation League badly missed the mosque moment:

ADL leader Abe Foxman presented the position of this organization, which claims to oppose discrimination, by reading a formal statement that seemed to be a perfect example of “shooting and crying” (first you attack brutally, then you cry about how sad it is to be put into this difficult position, often blaming the victims for having “forced” you to attack them).
