Since the start of Israel’s operation to stop Hamas rockets from Gaza, over 50 anti-Israel demonstrations have taken place in major cities across the U.S. National Director Abraham Foxman said that "we know that the message is getting uglier when protesters against Israel twist and pervert the most traumatic event in history against the Jewish people – the murder of six million Jews in the Holocaust – into a rallying cry against the State of Israel."
ADL cautiously expressed support for the four-month extension of talks between the U.S. and the other members of the P5+1 in their ongoing efforts to achieve a full cessation of Iran’s nuclear program. But the League voiced concern that agreement for additional time reached in Vienna, which enables Iran to continue enriching uranium and gives it access to more of its restricted assets, presents “a danger that Iran will read the extension as a reward for its intransigence.”
“We are alarmed by the growing hostility toward Israel in Turkey, which is increasingly being directed at the Jewish community. Now is the time for the prime minister to speak out again and reject those who target Turkey’s Jews. He needs to assure this increasingly vulnerable community that it has the full support and protection of the state.”
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on Prime Minister Erdogan’s remarks on the Israel-Hamas conflict and the security of Turkish Jews.
Unlike in Israel where there is widespread rejection of anti-Arab incitement, the discontent within Palestinian society is fanned and incited into hatred by a widespread, unfettered support for violence against Jews and Israel.
