Why would nominally Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) whitewash anti-Semitic hate speech, one of the nation’s most vicious racists and, most recently, Secretary of State John Kerry’s contribution to militant Islamic efforts to destroy Israel? The ADL’s and NJDC’s foremost loyalty is clearly to the left wing of the Democratic Party, and are willing to exploit their nominally Jewish identities to support this agenda regardless of how dishonest and dishonorable it might be.
Here is Abraham Foxman’s whitewash of Kerry:
We welcome Secretary Kerry’s clear affirmation that Israel is not an apartheid state nor headed in that direction should talks with the Palestinians fail. He now has publicly acknowledged that he made a mistake in using that term. Apartheid is a particularly loaded epithet that has repeatedly been used by Israel’s worst enemies to delegitimize the Jewish state and suggest it promulgates abhorrent racial policies similar to those of the apartheid regime in South Africa.
While we may disagree from time to time, we have never doubted Secretary Kerry’s commitment to Israel’s security and his good faith efforts to find a fair, equitable and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He is a true friend of Israel. His statement makes that clear, and we consider this chapter closed.
The problem is, however, that Kerry is not even sorry he accused Israel of becoming an apartheid state; he is sorry he exposed himself to “partisan” political backlash. The reference adds that this is the first time a U.S. official of Kerry’s stature has used this kind of language to describe Israel.
