ADL: Time magazine Israel cover story rehashes anti-Semitic lies
In a letter to Managing Editor Richard Stengel, Foxman called on the magazine’s editors to issue an apology to readers, both for the timing of the article and its calling up age-old anti-Semitic stereotypes about Jews and money.
“The insidious subtext of Israeli Jews being obsessed with money echoes the age-old anti-Semitic falsehood that Jews care about money above any other interest, in this case achieving piece with the Palestinians,” wrote Mr. Foxman.
“At the same time, Time ignores the very real sacrifices made by Israel and its people in the pursuit of peace and the efforts by successive Israeli governments of reconciliation," the ADL said.
If you recall, recently the ADL denounced the intent to build GZM, not denying the right to do so - but questioning the motives and intents of those who intend to build it. (like Obama, only they did make a statement against 'the wisdom of the act'). Well, some Jews in America can't help themselves, the solution to everything is co-existence, interfaith, appeasement.
Jewish groups bolster support for U.S. Muslims
In recent days various Jewish organizations, communities and religious leaders have stepped up and denounced Islamophobia in the U.S. that is seemingly on the rise.
Their actions answer the call of U.S. Muslim communities, worried about provocations during Iftar holidays. This year, one of the three days of the Muslim holiday coincide with commemorations of the 2001 World Trade Center attacks.
Several Jewish leaders took part in an emergency interfaith summit in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday that called for an effort by followers of all faiths to reach out to the Muslim American community. The summit was organized by the Islamic Society of North America.
The Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) issued a statement on Wednesday that condemned the proposed September 11 "International Burn a Quran Day" by Reverend Terry Jones of The Dove World Outreach Center of Gainesville, Florida.
The organization that represents 2,000 Reform rabbis said that the planned event evokes “Talmud burnings in the 13th and 16th centuries and the burning of Jewish books in the 1930s by the Nazis."
“The burning of books is a powerfully symbolic act which condemns to the flames not only the words contained therein but those who would live by those words as well,” rabbis said in a statement.
“In the 20th century, we tragically witnessed the prophetic truth of Heinrich Heine's words, 'Where they burn books, they will, in the end, burn human beings too.' We call on all people of reason and good faith, to condemn this incendiary act and the blindness and hatred which motivate it," the rabbis' statement said.
Various U.S. government officials have spoken of their opposition to the plan to publicly burn copies of the Koran. On Wednesday, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, and commander of the U.S. forces in Afghanistan General David Petraeus all condemned the planned action.
Stop protecting the aggressors. Muslims are not victims here. Jewish liberals: get your heads out of your asses and see what Muslims are doing.
