The Anti-Defamation League’s selective outrage continues
In a situation which could only be described as comical, the Jerusalem Post has reported that spokespersons from the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Weisenthal Center have collectively cried “Antisemitism” over a cartoon by Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Tom Oliphant.
Here are some of the reader’s comments from the Jerusalem Post article (comments are unedited):
#73 IF Only We Threatened To Take Their Heads Off Like The Muslims Would They Would NOT Dare Print It! – Way too polite/timid for our own good…..being ladies and gentlemen gets you nowhere.
#105 Pavlov’s dog and ADL – NY Times cartoonist is right, and I applaud the courage of the NYT editors who in the past used put heavy censorship on their cartoonists. The David Star is the centerpiece of the Israeli Flag and it was used as such. I’m Jewish and I don’t consider the cartooon anti-Semitic or offending. I am more offended by the lemmings form ADL and S. Wiesethal Center who always react like the famous Pavlov’s dog. Pure opportunistic conditioning for future lobbying. Die we loose all shame and sense for rational and artistic critics?
#154 Oliphant’s Blatent Mainstreaming of Hate – This cartoon is a clear effort to mainstream hatred of Jews and Israel in alliance with Moslem & Arab efforts to demonize Israel. Hamas rocket attacks are treated as mere annoyances to big bad Israel by the Left and also cheered by all the Lefties of the world. Bo other nation would tolerate rocket attacks for years without a response. Wake up People we are under the same psychological warfare as in the 1930s!!!
#128 Once we have reached this point…. …the ADL is no longer of much use. Time for US Jews to become heavily involved with the JDL. Time to Iinvest in guns to protect your property and families. TIME TO WAKE THE HELL UP. Time for Jews in Europe, South Africa and other places to move to Israel, or at least the US or Canada where you can own arms and defend yourselves, but Israel is your best bet, of course many of you have been so influenced by the propaganda and biased media reports, that you fools are against Israel too.
This cartoon comes on the heels of a recent discovery by Haaretz that Israeli Defense Force soldiers were printing the most vile t-shirts featuring sodomy of Arab leaders and the murder of pregnant Arab women women. While the IDF condemned the t-shirts, there was no outcry from the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Weisnthal Center or any other Pro-Israel/Jewish organization. It wasn’t enough that more than a thousand Palestinians were murdered, mostly indiscriminately but the survivors also had to suffer humiliation and defamation by the same people who murdered them.
If you go to the ADL’s website you will find a cartoon from the Hartford Courant around the time that Israel invaded Lebanon in 2006. ADL praised the fact that an American cartoonist portrayed Israel’s role in that particular conflict. Israel basically did the same thing to Lebanon as they did to Gaza: target civilian and humanitarian infrastructure and kill indiscriminately. In fact, you will see many pictures that would be anti-Semitic if they criticized Israel. Click here to see the ADL praising the cartoons that are anti-Semitic towards true Semitic peoples of the Middle East.
We cannot expect non-profit organizations like the ADL and the Simon Weisnthal Center to give up their bread and butter which is Antisemitism, so it is up to the alternative media to continue to shine a light on them and then ridicule them out of existence. With that said, it would be advantageous to push back against these extremists now! The last thing that these bullies want is more exposure, which is exactly what we must give them.
The NY Times has been owned by the Och-Sulzberger family since 1896. Arthur Hays -Sulzberger, publisher from 1935 to 1961, once wrote the following:
I am a non Zionist because the Jew, in seeking a homeland of his own, seems to me to be giving up something of infinitely greater value of the world. … I look askance at any movement which assists in making the peacemaker among nations merely a national warrior.
