    Amid controversy over new protections President Barack Obama has extended to transgender people, a number of Jewish groups have welcomed them. A statement Friday from the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center praised the guidance issued the same day by the Justice and Education departments requiring that schools receiving federal funds end discrimination based on sexual identification. […] The National Council for Jewish Women said the guidance “provides needed clarity and best practices for public school districts and institutions of higher learning.” Also praising the guidance was Rabbi Jack Moline, who directs Interfaith Alliance, a coalition that includes major Jewish national...

    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has called upon the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, Donald Trump, to formally renounce the support of American Freedom Party head William Daniel Johnson. Johnson, an attorney and white nationalist leader who has endorsed Trump’s candidacy, was initially selected as a delegate for California’s upcoming GOP primary. Writing under a series of pen names, Johnson has advocated what has been referred to as the “James O. Pace” Amendment to the US Constitution. Under Johnson’s proposed amendment, all non-Aryans, with the exception of Native Americans and Hawaiians, would be deprived of citizenship and deported from the United States....

    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today urged presidential candidate Donald Trump to reconsider his use of the phrase “America First” as a slogan describing his approach to foreign affairs, citing its anti-Semitic use in the months before Pearl Harbor by a group of prominent Americans seeking to keep the nation out of World War II. The most noteworthy leader of the “America First Committee” was Charles Lindbergh, who sympathized with the Nazis and whose rhetoric was characterized by anti-Semitism and offensive stereotypes, including assertions that Jews posed a threat to the U.S. because of their influence in motion pictures, radio, the...

(See Jordana Brown’s An Open Letter to Simone Zimmerman on this website). A spokesperson for the Sanders campaign sent out an e-mail saying “she has been suspended while we investigate the matter.” On Wednesday, The Washington Free Beacon discovered and published a Facebook post where Zimmerman described Netanyahu as “arrogant, deceptive, cynical” and “manipulative.” She used expletives and...

    The strange-bedfellows truism of American politics was all but redefined Tuesday when Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump – currently taking fire from his own party for the support he's getting from the Ku Klux Klan – got a salute from Louis Farrakhan, longtime leader of the Nation of Islam. ....Speaking at the black nationalist organization's annual Savior's Day in Chicago, Farrakhan told parishioners that he admires Trump because he believes the celebrity billionaire's purportedly self-funded presidential campaign isn't taking money from the "Jewish community."

    Facing a troubling surge in anti-Semitism in Europe, the Anti-Defamation League has entered a partnership with a powerful, and at the same time controversial, European Jewish organization. ADL announced on January 27 that it had signed an agreement with the European Jewish Congress that would "heighten ADL's relations with European Jewish communities at a time when rising anti-Semitism and security are of paramount concern." Critics, however, point to the partner chosen by the venerable American organization, specifically to its leader, Moshe Kantor, a Russian billionaire, as a source of concern, given his close ties with Russia's authoritarian president, Vladimir Putin,...

    "With Open Gates: The Forced Collective Suicide of European Nations," a virulently anti-refugee propaganda video widely circulated on the Internet has received over four million views on YouTube over the last two weeks. The video uses selective footage of African and Muslim refugees and immigrants to depict them as creating mayhem and destruction throughout Europe. The video ends with a clip of the founder of a Jewish cultural institute in Sweden, who claims that Jews support efforts to promote multiculturalism in Europe. This segment of the video gives fuel to anti-Semites who blame Jews for non-white immigration to Europe. The...

Charlie Baker, for refusing to accept Syrian refugees after Friday's ISIS attacks that killed 129 people and injured more than 430 others in Paris.

Greenblatt said Monday, urging governors to keep their doors open during the humanitarian crisis. "Now is precisely the time to stand up for our core values, including that we are a...

    Politico Magazine published an excerpt from Ambassador Dennis Ross’ latest book “Doomed to Succeed: The US–Israeli relationship from Truman to Obama,” which highlighted how President Barack Obama succeeded with the Iran Deal at the expense of the two allies’ relationship. According to Ross, National Security Adviser Susan Rice told the national director of the Anti-Defamation League Abe Foxman that in reacting to the deal, which Israel knew little about, Netanyahu did everything “but use ‘the n-word’ in describing the president.” In his book, Ross argues that “It didn’t have to play out that way.” Per Politico: From the outset of...

    In 1913, Frank was convicted of murdering 13-year-old Mary Phagan, who worked in his Atlanta factory. The case, charged with race, religion, sex and class, exploded in a national media frenzy. When Georgia's governor commuted Frank's death sentence, citizens took matters in their own hands. The case established the Anti-Defamation League as the country's most outspoken opponent of anti-Semitism. It also fueled the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan. Until ADL lawyers pressed officials to posthumously pardon Frank in the 1980s, the case was hushed in Atlanta's synagogues, the homes of Old Marietta, and among Phagan's descendants.

He took on prominent figures over anti-Semitic remarks or representations—actor Mel Gibson among them—and accepted any ensuing apologies on behalf of an entire community. No other U.S. Jewish leader has wielded as much influence with policymakers, faith leaders and U.S. Jews. On Monday, Foxman retires as national director, a major moment of transition in American Jewish life that raises questions about the future of the organization known as the ADL. […] The ADL...

Bird, then a student at Harvard’s Divinity School, worked for Edmund Hanauer, one of America’s most prominent anti-Israel activists, in 2002. Bird worked for Hanaeuer while Hanaeuer wrote a virulently anti-Israel op-ed that accused Israel of “state terrorism” and “war crimes,” and called for the arrest and prosecution of Israeli soldiers. Bird and Hanaeur also attacked Israel in speeches. Hanauer showed an anti-Israel film to a Harvard audience and gave a speech at Harvard in 2002. Bird also...

The figure is far higher than most other northern European countries. Based on a worldwide survey of 53,100 adults across 101 countries, a global average of 26 percent of people can be classed as anti-Semitic, the Anti-Defamation League said. ADL researchers classed respondents as anti-Semitic if they answered “probably true” to six out of 11 statements classed as “anti-Semitic stereotypes” in their questionnaire. The most common anti-Semitic belief was “Jews are more loyal to Israel than to [this...

    Tears were shed and Hitler was quoted on Wednesday, as ethnic tensions erupted at the State House and threatened to derail Governor Deval Patrick’s nominee for a seat on the Superior Court. The charged struggle centers around the leadership role that the nominee, Joseph S. Berman, has played in the Anti-Defamation League, a national organization dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and other forms of discrimination. Berman’s nomination stirred opposition because, for years, the organization refused to label as genocide the slaughter of Armenians by Ottoman Turks between 1915 and 1923, a stance that angered the Armenian community. But in 2007, the...

    This anti-Semitic flier was found by residents in Arlington and Takoma Park. Takoma Park resident Hadar Susskind awoke early Sunday morning to find a four-page, anti-Semitic screed laying in his front yard. The flier, which purports to detail "Jew crimes" and labels "Israel the problem," has been found outside homes in areas of Arlington and Takoma Park in recent days. The Anti-Defamation League says that it's currently investigating numerous complaints from Virginia residents who've received the document (others who received it in Takoma Park contacted WJW). The flier heavily resembles a multipage pamphlet that was left in front of homes...
  • Anti-Defamation League Has Strayed from Its Charter

    American Thinker ^ | 11/13/11 | William A. Levinson
    The Anti-Defamation League's original charter is simple, straightforward, and honorable: The immediate object of the League is to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people. Its ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike and to put an end forever to unjust and unfair discrimination against and ridicule of any sect or body of citizens. Nowhere does this call for the ADL to shield Barack Obama from the consequences of his policies toward Israel and other allies of the United States. The...

    Foxman and friends seem to have forgotten that debate, discussion and yes, even disagreement are precisely what democracy is all about. The American presidential election may be over a year away, but two leading Jewish organizations are already gearing up to assist Barack Obama in his effort to win a second term. In a highly unusual move, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the American Jewish Committee (AJC) have joined forces to launch what is being billed as a “National Unity Pledge for Israel.” The document, which is being widely circulated to garner signatures, ostensibly seeks to promote bipartisan support for...

    New York, NY, October 25, 2011...The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said some groups had distorted its call with the American Jewish Committee (AJC) for a national bipartisan consensus on Israel as an attempt to stifle cricism of the Obama Administration. The League today made clear that was not intended to discourage raising questions about a candidate's support for Israel, as some groups, including the Republican Jewish Coalition and the Emergency Coalition for Israel, have charged. Rather, the purpose of the pledge is "to put Israel ahead of politics" while "avoiding harsh and personal rhetoric or tactics in the form of attacks...

    A growing number of Israelis and foreign Jewish groups are expressing concern over the anti-Semitic flavor of some of the "Occupy Wall St." economic protests in the US. From the 13th century expulsion of Englands Jews to the 19th century Russian pogroms to the Nazi Holocaust, sour economic conditions have historically formed the backdrop of rising anti-Semitism.(snip) Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper called the anti-Semitic outbursts ''hard to watch,'' and an Israeli commenter said, ''It's just like pre-World War II Nazi Germany. You think blood libels can't happen in America?''

    ADL Applauds Israel PM Netanyahu's Speech At UN - Says Abbas Peace Song 'Rings Hollow' By Joel Leyden Israel News Agency New York --- September 28, 2011 .... Days after the Palestinian Authority, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Hamas and much of the Arab world attacked the legitimacy of Israel at the UN one can still find several Jewish organizations standing up for Israel. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) embraced Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to the UN General Assembly, in which he unequivocally repeated Israel's desire for and commitment to peace with the Palestinians. Netanyahu again agreed for the creation of...

    New York, NY, September 16, 2011 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) urges the Vatican to ensure that a breakaway Catholic sect which teaches anti-Judaism will be required to accept the church's official positive teachings about Jews and Judaism before they are fully accepted back into the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican announced earlier this week that in order for The Society of St. Pius X to gain full reconciliation with the church, SSPX must accept some core church teachings, but they have not been made public. It was unclear from news reports and Vatican statements whether the landmark reforms of...

    WASHINGTON (JTA) – To some conservative Jews, Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make an excellent presidential candidate. He’s been to Israel more than any other candidate already in the field and has said he loves it. And Perry creates jobs. But other Jewish conservatives seeking the anti-Obama candidate look at the three-term governor and see something arresting: He believes he’s on a mission from God. Perry has nonplussed longtime Jewish supporters by claiming that he has been “called” to the presidency and by hosting a prayer rally this month that appealed to Jesus to save America. Jennifer Rubin, the Washington...

    With a tip of the boonie hat to Brock for the link, so says the ADL: "Rage Grows in America: Anti‑Government Conspiracies. The Three Percenters." Long-time readers may recall we have encountered the ADL's "militia expert" Mark Pitcavage before. Back in the 90s, Mark Pitcavage trolled the internet snitching for the FBI, assisted, he said, by "Sparky, the anti-militia dog." Now he works for ADL, and Sparky hasn't been heard from in years. There are conflicting rumors as to his sad fate. One said that Pitcavage sat on him, smothering the poor beast. Other reports say that Pitcavage ate him...

    In case you forgot, our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, is a Jew-hating jerk. Let's take a look at his plan to destroy the state of Israel: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine. The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and...

    Seventy-eight percent of American Jews voted for Barack Obama, and in the wake of Obama’s betrayal of Israel, Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League is trying to keep them on the reservation. One wonders why Foxman even bothers with this dangerous fool’s errand. Obama has associated with antisemites and Palestinian jihad sympathizers throughout his political career, such that the Jews and supporters of Israel who voted for him in 2008 should be in full backpedal mode by now, apologizing for their earlier support for this clear enemy of Israel and dedicating themselves to defeating him in 2012. But apparently Foxman’s...
