New York, NY, May 10, 2010 � The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today issued a statement in response to the President's nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court.
Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:
We congratulate Elena Kagan on her nomination to the Supreme Court. She has already served this nation with distinction in a number of capacities, most recently as Solicitor General. The granddaughter of immigrants, she has lived the American Dream, achieving one professional success after another and serving as a role model for many in the process.
We applaud President Obama for having selected this distinguished lawyer. With her background in academia, private practice, and government service, if confirmed, she will undoubtedly bring an important new perspective to the work of the Court.
Now it is the Senate's turn to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to thoroughly review Ms. Kagan's record and qualifications. As this process moves forward, ADL will share with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee key issues they should explore with Ms. Kagan, as we have done with past nominees.
In considering this nomination, we urge political leaders in both parties to fulfill their constitutional responsibilities in a manner that is thoughtful and reasoned. It is our hope that the process will be civil and respectful, and will cast our American democracy in the best possible light.
Foxman hates Geert Wilders and loves Muslims. Screw you FOxman.
Foxman hates religious Jews and loves secular JINO Lesbians. Lovely.
I guess that being Jewish trumps being gay and a communist. I guess I do not understand that reality.
Can we stop with the grandchild of immigrants meme. I’m the grandchild of immigrants aand that fact has had no discernible effect on my life, save to enjoying seven kinds of fish on Christmas Eve.My grandparents worked hard and made a life for themselves, but that’s America’s story. Of course the MSM saw no value in an actual immigrant’s rise to legal heights with the story of Miguel Estrada.
Anything promoted by the ADL can’t be good.
So the ADL has spoken and its all over.
She is clearly qualified because they say so. We don’t even need Senate Confirmation Hearings.
The ADL does a disservice to the growing number of conservative Jewsih Americans it embarrasses with its idotic statements.
If you think in terms of identity politics like the Democrats do she's a twofer, Jewish and lesbian.
Isn’t the ADL a bit like the YWCA? Once it was taken over by liberal/progressives, the name just became a quaint anachronism from a bygone era.
Thanks for that ringing endorsement Val!
She was making the obvious comparison. If Obama had nomintated a White male he would be neither a person, nor a woman.
Thank god Obama did the right thingand nominated a person and a woman.
