Abraham Foxman, the left-wing professional whiner and perpetual victim in charge of the Anti-Defamation League, is really serving the Jewish community well. You may recall the last time Foxman was in the news, he was leading a hysterical campaign to censor, smear, and suffocate Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of the Christ. With Mel having parlayed the free publicity from Foxman and his ilk into a mega-smash that made over $600 million worldwide, I think it’s safe to say that Foxman’s campaign backfired in a rather spectacular way. His dire predictions that the film would spark modern-day pogroms turned out to be, shall we say, slightly over-stated.
The problem with people who have no sense of shame is that they never learn from their mistakes. Now, Foxman is at it again. Haaretz reports that Foxman has launched "the first all-out media assault by an ADL head on the U.S. Christian establishment." Exhbiting his trademark sense of restraint, Foxman explained the threat Jews face from Christian extremists:
They [conservative Christian organizations] intend to Christianize all aspects of American life, from the halls of government to the libraries, to the movies, to recording studios, to the playing fields and locker rooms of professional, collegiate and amateur sports; from the military to SpongeBob SquarePants.
Note to Foxman: Look at the new Iranian President’s vow to wipe Israel off the map. Look at the constellation of organizations dedicated to Israel’s destruction: Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al-Quada, etc… Look at who perpetrated the attacks on Jewish cemeteries, schools, and cultural institutions all over Europe for the past five years. Look at the state-run media reports in Egypt and Syria, where American Jews are routinely described as running a secret, evil cabal that has taken control of the entire world.
Yes, the Jews are facing a dire threat from the extremist adherents of a certain religion. But I think you may want to reflect a little deeper on which religion that is.
