Over 1,500 rabbis agree that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is “no longer competent to identify, let alone combat, antisemitism.’”
An ADL spokesperson, describing the new initiative, wrongly claimed that “Anti-Israel activism in and of itself is not antisemitism” and that they would need to “carefully evaluate” student government resolutions supporting BDS, the international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement that seeks to destroy the State of Israel.
As explained by Discover the Networks:
The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement is a Hamas-inspired initiative that aims to use various forms of public protest, economic pressure, and court rulings to advance the Hamas agenda of permanently destroying Israel as a Jewish nation-state. While Hamas pursues this goal in its low-intensity war against Israel by means of terrorism and bloodshed, BDS supplements those efforts in the United States.
In June, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement slammed Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh for “betraying” Palestinians because he met with the Moroccan Prime Minister. The rage was due to Morocco’s normalization agreement with Israel.
Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) Southern Regional Vice President Rabbi Moshe B. Parnes rightly states:
“Only someone with no sense of Jewish history could claim that BDS is not antisemitic.”
On May 31, I wrote an extensive article about the ADL and its “Brief History on Antisemitism,” which focuses on Christians, while completely avoiding the ongoing jihad against Israel. Even some churches today, as well as the World Council of Churches, ruled by globalist doctrine and liberation theology, sympathize with the Palestinian resistance against Israel. They buy into the lie that the Palestinians are the victims while Israel, struggling for its survival since 1948, is the “oppressor.” See the Kairos Palestine document, which drives this agenda, HERE.
Those with common sense and a minimum knowledge of history should be questioning the willful blindness and the agenda of the ADL.
Coalition for Jewish Values, August 3, 2021:
Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) took renewed aim at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today, after the ADL announced a partnership with Hillel International, the Jewish college organization, to document antisemitism on American campuses. While such an effort is noble and worthwhile, the ADL, CJV points out, demonstrated that it lacks the moral clarity to properly identify antisemitism, let alone combat it. An ADL spokesperson, describing the new initiative, wrongly claimed that “Anti-Israel activism in and of itself is not antisemitism” and that they would need to “carefully evaluate” student government resolutions supporting BDS, the international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement that seeks to destroy the State of Israel.
“Only someone with no sense of Jewish history could claim that BDS is not antisemitic,” said CJV Southern Regional Vice President Rabbi Moshe B. Parnes. “The first Nazi edict was a boycott of Jewish businesses; economic warfare directed against the Jewish people was then and has always been one of the first signs of systemic Jew-hatred. Combating antisemitism in all its forms defined the ADL’s mission throughout its long and storied history, and it is crucial that it return to its core goals.”
For millennia, antisemitism has been driven by fabricated conspiracy theories regarding Jewish supremacists acquiring wealth by means of thievery and fraud. In the modern era, the same fictional beliefs are applied to the State of Israel. BDS arose from and is perpetuated by the same concocted claims expressed as land theft, apartheid, ethnic cleansing and similar terms, providing a prime example of ancient antisemitism in new dress….
