The Irrelevancy of the Anti Defamation League (ADL)

Ever since the the ADL, headed by Abraham Foxman (pictured above), issued a press release in favor of Prime Minister Sharon's expulsion / destruction plan of Jewish communities in the Land of Israel, I have been at a loss to understand exactly what the purpose of this esteemed organization is, whose aim is to fight anti-Semitism, racism, bigotry and various forms of political extremism, and how an organization with these goals could possibly be in favor of the "Disengagement" plan.

Thankfully, Abraham Foxman teamed up with Ha'aretz this past week in an article entitled: Jews are not expelling Jews and provided some 'answers'.

"Now it is being charged that the Jewish government of Israel is behaving just like those anti-Semites who made our lives so miserable for so long. The purpose of the Jewish state, it is reasoned, was to end all this and here we have history repeating itself from the most unlikely of sources, the Jewish state itself.

In fact, the very opposite is true. What is happening in Gaza, whether one agrees with the decision or not, is exactly what Jewish sovereignty is about... The Jewish state was set up to end that history where decisions were made about Jews on the basis of hatred against them. The Jewish state was also established so that Jews will make decisions about their own destiny rather than having them determined by others...

What they are doing is fulfilling the Zionist dream of Jewish sovereignty through its institutions of democratic government deciding the future of the Jewish people

Thanks, Abe, for clearing that one up.

So, there you have it. The upcoming planned destruction of Jewish communities in the Land of Israel and expulsion of Jews from their homes is in fact 'fulfilling the Zionist dream'.

Where would we be without the ADL to explain that one to us?
