Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair, and Abraham Foxman, ADL National Director commended Prime Minister Netanyahu's remarks at the 2014 United Nations General Assembly and said the prime minister "indeed spoke ‘truth to power’ with his unvarnished and sobering catalog of the challenges of militant Islam and its pursuit of global primacy, the hypocrisy of the U.N. Human Rights Council and the dangers of allowing Iran to reach the threshold of a nuclear weapons breakout capability."
The League announced the release of “Best Practices for Responding to Cyberhate,” a new initiative that establishes guideposts for the industry and the Internet community to help prevent the spread of online hate speech. Facebook, Google/YouTube, Microsoft, Twitter, and Yahoo have expressed support for ADL’s efforts.
"The Prime Minister's vision for a better future for Palestinians and Israelis was a powerful counterpoint to Palestinian Authority President Abbas’ speech to the UNGA, which, in aggressive and hate-filled rhetoric, vilified Israel, and repudiated even the hope of peace and reconciliation."
Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article in The Times of Israel in reaction to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyau’s address at the United Nations.
We pause to take stock of the year that has passed, to learn from ourselves, our experiences and our mistakes as we move forward to build a better future. This has been a most difficult year for the Jewish people and particularly for the state of Israel.
