Koshersalaami apparently thinks the Jewish organization ADL walks on water.  

I don't.

I expressed this by comparing Hamas' Holocaust denial with the ADL's denial of the Armenian Genocide.  

As a good Zionist he was ALSO offended by this because acknowledging anyone else's right to claim "genocide" dilutes Israel's "We OWN the Holocaust" brand and they (and he as their shill) certainly don't want that!

SOOOOO...  he is now claiming that the ADL has never denied the Armenian Genocide.  

I beg to differ.

Here is a quote directly from the web page of the Armenian Genocide Museum:

"International recognition of the Armenian Genocide continues despite several obstacles and drawbacks. Some organizations deny the fact of Genocide or play down the horrible events by calling them “mass killings” or “atrocities”.

Surprisingly, one such scenario took place with the Anti-defamation League (ADL). A Jewish organization, established in the USA, denied Armenian Genocide through the statements of its National Director, Abraham H. Foxman. Naturally, US based Armenian organizations, firstly the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) heavily criticized this blatant denial. The Watertown Town Council in Massachusetts unanimously voted on Tuesday, August 14 2007, to rescind its affiliation with the “No Place for Hate” anti-racism and tolerance promotion program sponsored by the ADL. (Watertown has a high ethnic Armenian population, author’s note)."

This quote shows the exact words of the Director of the ADL AND explains why he is saying what he is (HINT:  they have always/still are acting as agents of a foreign government):

"Article 301 of the Turkish penal code makes it illegal to insult Turkey, the Turkish nation or the Turkish government. To acknowledge an “Armenian Genocide” is the most egregious insult possible.

Because Turkey was the first nation in the Middle East to establish diplomatic relations with Israel and remains an instrumental ally of the West, the United States is unwilling to rock that political boat. Even when a resolution was proposed by the 110th Congress to recognize the Armenian Genocide, then President George W. Bush publicly opposed the measure. He was not the first, and current President Barack Obama’s silence on the issue suggests he will not be the last.

And this has been Abraham Foxman’s dilemma. His public opposition to Armenian recognition has been out of loyalty to Israel. “Our focus is Israel,” he has said. “If helping Turkey helps Israel, then that’s what we’re in the business of doing.” It seems absurd to the point of tragedy that a man who lived under Nazi oppression can answer the question of Armenian genocide with, “It was wartime. Things get messy.”

But in 2007, Foxman tried to pacify his critics. Speaking for himself and the ADL, he stated that, “We have never negated but have always described the painful events of 1915-1918 perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire against Armenians as massacres and atrocities,” ending with decision that “the consequences of those actions were indeed tantamount to genocide.”

But “tantamount to genocide” without intent is not genocide. This calculated elision of “intent,” its palpable absence, is an insult to the Armenian community. The ADL’s defenders decry this as splitting hairs, but they overlook the importance of legacy and how powerfully a single word can affect it. It was important enough to prompt a dozen Massachusetts cities to pull out of the ADL’s “No Place for Hate” anti-bias program. It was important enough that when Andrew H. Tarsy, a regional director for the ADL, acknowledged the genocide as true genocide, he was promptly fired from the organization."

Sure seems like they engaged in "Genocide" denial to me.  If they later back tracked, that is a good thing, but it doesn't change the facts.

Oh, and as for THIS bullshit...

...the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish organization founded to combat antisemitism.

Maybe that was why it was founded over a hundred years ago, but for the last several decades it has done nothing but scream "YOU'RE ANTISEMITIC!!!!" at anyone who doesn't kiss Israel's ass.  They are just as much of an Israeli government tool as is AIPAC.

For example, they have even taken a multitude of cheap shots at JEWISH Voice of Peace and implied THEY are anti-Semitic because they aren't rabid pro-Israel-ites, FFS.

Heh...  people who talk about others using the "tactic" (read: "She is anti-Semitic, but I don't have the guts to come right out and say it") of actually SOURCING "her" contentions, then does their damnest to delegitimizing daring to actually source something that she believes/says... is pretty damn funny.

I guess in some people's minds (especially when sources are used to show just how much propaganda they spew) sourcing things comes way down the list compared to "I'm right because I just told you I was"-ish bullshit.

P.S.  Anna, if you ever feel that I am "attacking" you please tell me so (like you normally do).  I'm not some "holier than thou" condescending "raised proper" asshole like some here, so if I cross a line expressing my beliefs (or lack of them) talk to me about it.  I'm sure we can resolve any issue like that because we always have before.

Just read something that hit me hard...

"Israel’s law of return grants citizenship to Jews from anywhere in the world, while denying it to Palestinians with a history of residency in the country"

What that means is that that Trump's grandchildren can easily "return" to Israel and become citizens, but Palestinians in Gaza, (including the ones who could point out their old house) can not.

Think on that for a bit.
