ADL Calls J Street Campaign Against Israeli Prime Minister “Inflammatory and Repugnant”

New York, NY, February 11, 2015 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today criticized J Street for its “inflammatory and repugnant” campaign to mobilize American Jews to reject the Prime Minister of Israel’s sense of duty and responsibility to world Jewry.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

At the height of the controversy surrounding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled speech to Congress, J Street’s petition campaign that attempts to distance itself and American Jews from Israel’s duly elected prime minister is inflammatory and repugnant and exacerbates an already heated and politicized moment for U.S. Israel relations at a critical juncture in the West’s negotiations with Iran.

Let’s remember what is at stake: Preventing extremist Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon that could threaten Israel’s very existence.  In that goal, Mr. Netanyahu surely does represent not only Israelis but American Jews as well.

 

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
