Jewish Americans Deserve Better Than The ADL

Just another partisan outfit masquerading as a civil rights organization.

Anti-Semitism is a serious, albeit relatively small, problem in American life. Still, it’s a shame that the folks at the Anti-Defamation League, self-styled spokespeople of we Jews, are in the business of exaggerating threats when it serves their partisan interests and underplaying threats when they do not.

The ADL’s most recent study on rising anti-Semitism was, as always, carried by a number of media outlets. “Antisemitic incidents in US soar to highest level in two decades,” read one headline atop a picture of angry Tiki-torch Nazis in Charlottesville. “Largest year-on-year increase since 1979 comes as Trump administration is accused of failing to condemn bigotry.”

The ADL is just half a step behind the SPLC for left-wing lunacy. They even blame Trump for not soon enough condemning the the Jewish kid who made the vast majority of the bomb threats to Jewish institutions last year. No mention either that the other guy responsible was a “left-wing” journalist. Somehow Trump is responsible though.

Trump also failed to immediately condemn a wave of bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers and other institutions throughout the first half of 2017. A Jewish teen from Israel was arrested for allegedly making the vast majority of those threats.
