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.

Foxman has a bad case of the Obama tingle. The boy can’t help himself.

Soros was a Holocaust survivor too—don't mean a gdam thing when it comes to anti-American socialists.
The ADL is the same as NOW,The NAACP and CAIR.
Fascists first.

The Nazi guards also told the Jews not to boo the Fuhrer as they were being loaded onto the box cars... Heil Obama!

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.

Abe Foxman is a TYPICAL American Jew...extremely leftist, minutely Jewish.

‘It’s a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.”’
What a steaming pile of bloviating balderdash.
Flannelmouth Foxman should be nominated for Phoney of the Year for his inane remarks.
