Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

The first was that the ADL does not recognize the Armenian Genocide. Let’s see:

The second concerned alleged ADL statements calling for the destruction of Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. I…
