Foxman Must Go

The capacity for humiliating, destructive behavior from Abe Foxman (and those Jews who fund the Anti-Defamation League) continues to astound and repel proud Jews across the world.

Ever since Foxman voiced opposition to the Ground Zero mosque (even a broken clock is right twice a day), he has been prostrating himself in front of any mosque or madman who will listen, trying to make amends.  His latest dhimmi-Jew stunt takes the cake.  Foxman's Anti-Defamation League is now the leading advocate for monster-mosque construction projects that have run into local opposition across the country.

Foxman has launched the Interfaith Coalition on Mosques, a group begun by his Anti-Defamation League last September at the height of the opposition to the Ground Zero Islamic supremacist mosque.  Its objective is to fight for monster-mosque construction rights.  The coalition includes some of the nation's top religious leaders.  Imagine, if you will, an Islamic Coalition to Build Synagogues in Muslim Countries, or the Islamic Coalition of Muslims to Build Coptic Christian Churches in Egypt, or the Islamic Coalition to Build Hindu Temples in India, Kashmir, and Pakistan.  (OK, you can stop laughing now.)

Those of us who have watched the "inter-faith" war tactics of the Islamic supremacists for years know the talk goes one way: toward Islam, toward proselytizing for Islam.  Infidels -- i.e., non-Muslims -- are always spoken to.  We are admonished and scolded by our Muslim betters.  There is never any candor or criticism of Islamic religious intolerance.  There is no talk or strategy about demanding OIC initiatives to denounce and condemn the relentless slaughter of non-Muslims and moderate Muslims across the West, Africa, the Middle East, Russia, and the world at large.  There is no denunciation of Islamic law that commands and exacts the death penalty for "blasphemy," or honor killings, or clitorectomies.

Where is the interfaith dialogue on the incomprehensible slaughter of Christians in Egypt and Indonesia and Nigeria?  Where is the interfaith dialogue on the centuries-old vile Islamic anti-Semitism that foments and rolls to a boil throughout the world and has targeted the tiny Jewish state for over sixty years, resulting in a war for survival for the Jewish people against scores of Muslim attacks and wars?  Where is the interfaith dialogue on addressing honor killings in the U.S. -- Noor, Aasiya, Amina, Sarah, and all of the others?  Where is the interfaith dialogue for the over 80 million Hindus murdered by Muslims? 

The world's leading Muslim leaders broke off talks with the Vatican because the pope spoke about the onslaught of Islamic genocide against non-Muslims in Muslim countries.

Where is the interfaith dialogue concerning the challenge posed by the fact that Muslims are the first immigrant group that has ever come to this country with a ready-made model of society and government they believe to be superior to our Constitution and system of governance?

But Foxman is building coalitions to construct mega-mosques to teach the most vile anti-Semitism on the planet today.  And denying the Armenian genocide by Muslims.  It's a sin.

Back in August 2007, I demanded Foxman's resignation after his continual denials of the Armenian genocide.  We, as a people, cannot condone such unspeakable silence.  We, of all people, must never be silent about the systemic death of a people.  This Islamic genocide was heinous and brutal.  And considering the level of Islamic anti-Semitism in the Koran and Sunnah, it would be healthy and good for living Jews (and all decent and good people) to denounce roundly the Islamic genocide of the Armenians.

But Abe Foxman refused to take that fundamental stand.   In fact, he went one step further.  He fired Andrew Tarsy, the ADL's New England regional director, after Tarsy broke ranks with national leadership and said the human rights organization should acknowledge the Armenian genocide.  If the national ADL doesn't acknowledge the genocide, then the ADL is complicit in a cover-up.

Also, back in 2006, I took Foxman out for his attacks on those dear and precious friends of Israel, the Evangelical Christians.  Caroline Glick said this of Foxman that same year, "Rather than stand with the Catholic church as Benedict moves boldly against radical Islam, American Jewish leaders led by ADL Director Abe Foxman have been attacking the church for its theological decisions."

Foxman also came out in support of the Islamic school in Brooklyn whose principal was forced to resign because of her involvement in anti-Semitic "Intifada NYC" t-shirts (see here).

See the pattern?  Foxman demonizes Christian groups that love Israel while he kowtows to the Islamic jihad.

Our Jewish leadership has failed us miserably.  Foxman must go.
