On the pages of this site, a couple of accusations were made by Safe Bet’s Amy about the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish organization founded to combat antisemitism.
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 find that accusation pretty dubious, but I went looking to see what in Hell she could be talking about. What I saw was a comment on anti-Semitic rhetoric following an attack at Al Aqsa by some Israeli Arabs where they shot a couple of Israeli guards to death. The first link describes the event, which even Mahmoud Abbas, head of the Palestinian Authority, condemned:
The second is the ADL response:
Nowhere is there any reference to the destruction of Al Aqsa. I could not imagine there would be, as the ADL is not an anti-Muslim organization. Far from it:
This is, to put it bluntly, slander.
I have chosen to stop commenting on Amy’s blog and to stop allowing her to comment on mine. The reason I gave on her blog triggered this comment about the ADL, which illustrates perfectly why I made that decision.
This is a personal decision on my part. That which offends me I don’t expect to offend anyone else.
