The League applauded Jack Dorsey and Twitter for the company’s efforts to combat violent extremism, and congratulated it on the formation of the "Trust & Safety Council," an important step forward to strike the right balance between fighting abuse and hate, and protecting free speech. "Fighting cyberhate has never been more critical," said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.
ADL and the European Jewish Congress (EJC) announced a partnership to cooperate on advocacy work within European Union institutions. This new collaboration will enable the League to have a greater impact on E.U. policies and programs through the relationships and standing of the EJC as the representative body of European Jews.
"...making the outrageous suggestion that Jews are behind gun control, is nothing short of conspiratorial anti-Semitism. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality.”
Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO, from an article on TIME.com regarding a Facebook post by Ted Nugent which targets prominent Jews for supporting gun control.
Mr. Greenblatt discusses a new French attempt to convene a conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and why their position reflects the “fundamental fallacy of much of the international community” in addressing the conflict. “Because they see Israel as the occupier and stronger party, they see pressure on Israel as the way to move the process,” he says, and explains why in this view, nothing is expected of the Palestinians.
