ADLís Abraham Foxman: Obama didnít throw Israel under the bus
The Plum Line (Washington Post) ^ | 5/20/11 | Greg Sargent

Posted on 05/21/2011 1:26:20 PM PDT by Winged Hussar

I just got off the phone with Abraham Foxman, the Holocaust survivor who heads the Anti-Defamation League. He does not agree with the claim by some Republican 2012 presidential candidates and conservative commentators that Obama threw Israel under the bus in his Arab Spring speech yesterday.

...“I don’t see this as the president throwing Israel under the bus,” he told me. “He’s saying with `swaps.’ It’s not 1967 borders in the abstract. It’s not an edict. It’s a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.”

My take: Abraham Foxman says, "Obama's excrement doesn't stink."

Foxman's past history:

(1) Used ADL's nominally Jewish identity to whitewash MoveOn.org's promotion of anti-Semitic and other hate speech, thus underscoring Foxman's priorities: left wing of the Democratic Party FIRST, with opposition to hate speech and hate organizations a distant second.

(2) Legitimized the vicious racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton by issuing a joint statement with him on some issue or other.

(3) Came one step short of Holocaust denial by encouraging Congress to reject a resolution to recognize the genocide of Armenians during the First World War. I say "one step short" because he did not actually deny that Armenians were murdered. He fired an ADL director (Tarsy) for daring to contravene him on this, which prompted two other directors to resign in disgust.

"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" Foxman certainly did his best to prove Hitler right.

Abe Foxman, Morris Dees, Al Sharpton, Ibrahim Hooper; they’re all essentially the same person.

I agree with Foxman. Zero couldn’t have thrown Israel under the bus because he was driving it, right over top of them!

The ADL’s primary function is serving as a propaganda-spewing spin machine for the Democrat party. The Party above all else.

If the 1967 borders are a “starting point”, then the end is national suicide. Foxman is a dupe.

With some of these Jews, its politics first, religion second..they would be up in arms about this if a Republican had said it, but since it was one of their own they are fine with it. They’d hand Israel over to Hamas if it meant preserving their liberal agenda

What did Jews in Hitler’s concentration camps call the Jews who helped prepare you for the ovens? Can’t remember. They had a name for them, though. Seems appropriate here.

Major league damage control and media assistance.

Give them a little time and this will come to be portrayed as a horrible slight by a crude and ungrateful Bibi towards the near deity Obama.

Foxman’s lost his mind. Tomorrow he’ll write an angry letter contradicting this quote.

Also, keep in mind that under Foxman’s AD watch, the climate towards Jews hasn’t improved.

All this bastard does is cause fu**ing crisis after crisis. What a God damn disastser. He’s fuc**ng wrecking this country. He’s already destroyed out press. Yes the press msm has always leaned left but now it’s so outta control it’s Orwellian. Next time there is a Repubican president the press won’t be able to say squat if that GOP prez ignores the law. The Republican president will say, well, there was a precedent for this by Obama and you fu**s didn’t do sh*t. I’ve fu++ing had it with this guy he needs to GO.

Stupid fu**ing Americans who votes for this asshole are going to pay.

A Sonderkommando was the group who would do the actual work of undressing, herding and cleanup. They would be led by a Kapo, the equivalent of a prison trustee.

Nowadays, they are Reform Jews. The Dem rabbis are the Judas goats.

Here is a question. Is there a synagogue in Dearborn, Mi?

The ADL is an embarrassment to the the Jewish Community. However there are a lot of American Jews who support and defend Israel. We've had plenty of rallies here in Chicago, oh and yes every time the pro-Palestinians come out to shout the most obscene anti-Semitic comments you could imagine.

Foxman is a stooge, but I have noticed that it is the mega rich Jews like.... Soros!!! Who attack Israel.

I don’t care iof it is the ADL, the NRA or Judicial Watch. All corporate nonprofits should be abolished unless they feed, clothe, or house human beings.

No more noprofits subsidies of any kind. No more gov’t grants, no reduced cost of postage, etc, etc.

Foxman couldn’t detect anti-Semitism even if it bit him on the freakin’ @ss, but then many Leftist Jews in Nazi Germany didn’t either.

I’m sure as the Feds continue to jack up their anti-Semitism Foxman will be out there continuing to protect them!

That’s it, thank you. I remember now. Memory must be failing. I thought it sounded more like a curse when you said it, or like you were spitting or something — although I suppose you could say ‘kapo’ with those sound effects thrown in.

Kirstin Powers already tried that on Fox News by stating that Netanyahu was disrespectful of Obama. She's one of the resident liberals on their talk shows.

OK, Abe, fair enough.

Then you won’t have a problem when Israel does (as Netanyahu seemingly did) thank the President for his “recommendation” and recommend him to shove it up his... “not an edict”... just a “recommendation” on where it should go.

It’s a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.

Because, as we all know, just exactly what that whole place needs is one more structure for negotiations.

“What did Jews in Hitler’s concentration camps call the Jews who helped prepare you for the ovens? Can’t remember. They had a name for them, though. Seems appropriate here.”

Kapos (trustees, collaborators)—they told the other Jews that they were going to take nice warm showers.

I resent this just as much as a Black person might resent the statement that Al Sharpton is a “typical” American Negro. Foxman is garbage that unfortunately happens to be Jewish, and Sharpton is garbage in a Black package. Either would be garbage no matter how they were packaged.

“What did Jews in Hitler’s concentration camps call the Jews who helped prepare you for the ovens? Can’t remember. They had a name for them, though. Seems appropriate here.”

LibWhacker:

They were called JUDENRAT. They wore armbands with the star of David on them. They helped round up the jews and they packed them in the cattle cars. They also played music while the lines of jews went to the showers.

They were told that they would either get to live as sexually sterile enemy aliens or they would be the last Jews to die by the Nazi regime. All Jews should be familiar with the history of intra-Jewish traitor movements. Judenrat was just a more modern version of an age old problem.

I would say the ADL and “reform” Judaism is another manifestation of this same illness. Just like “Unitarian” and other pro-vice “flavors” of Christianity render the same disservice to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Always be wary of the enemy within...

Because you always start negotiations from a place of greatest weakness. It shows you are willing to give everything up for a good result.
