I have long taken issue with ADL [Anti-Defamation League] leader Abe Foxman's undiluted support for Obama. So I was surprised to read this in Newsmax:
The Anti-Defamation League has taken issue with comments from President Barack Obama that the ADL says reflect a "significant shift" in U.S. policy toward Israel and the peace process.
During his closing remarks and press conference following the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington on April 13, Obama said about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: "Not only is it in the interests of each party to resolve these conflicts, but it's also in the interest of the United States. It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts."
ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman issued this statement in response: "The significant shift in U.S. policy toward Israel and the peace process, which has been evident in comments from various members of the Obama Administration and has now been confirmed by the president himself in his press conference at the Nuclear Security Summit, is deeply distressing.
On the other hand, a look at the ADL website doesn't carry this statement on its headlined frontpage.In fact, the last item on the site is an April 22 statement by Foxman praising Obama: If you dig through the ADL press releases elsewhere on the website, however, you find that the Newsmax article is based on an April 15 press release. By April 22, as you can see in the list of ADL releases Foxman has returned to his unctuous and unwarranted praise for Obama.
