ADL expressed shock and outrage at the brutal terrorist attack inside the Kehilat Bnei Torah synagogue in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood, where four Israeli Jews at prayer and once police officer were killed. National Chair Barry Curtiss-Lusher and National Director Abraham Foxman said that Palestinian Authority President Abbas' condemnation was "woefully inadequate."
The League reacted to a jailhouse interview by avowed white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller, who in a series of phone calls with a reporter from the Kansas City Star laid out in chilling detail how he methodically carried out the shootings that killed three people at Jewish sites in Overland Park, Kansas.
"His half hearted statement is woefully inadequate. Had Mr. Abbas spoken out against earlier terror attacks, lives may have been saved."
Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article in The Wall Street Journal on the terror attack in Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority President Abbas’ condemnation.
