ADL’s Head of International Relations Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

Departing ADL official admits what her organization will not: the threat from Iran and Islamic terrorism is the greatest danger facing Jews

Established ADL policy in the U.S. is to downplay Islamist Jew-hatred as a major source of anti-Semitism for political and ideological reasons.

Yet, the organization’s outgoing head of international relations names the terrorist Islamic Republic of Iran as the most potent disseminator of anti-Semitism worldwide: “Iran is the number one sponsor of antisemitism, hands down,” she told The Algemeiner in a recent interview.

One wonders if she ever had a conversation with ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, who has issued many a Twitter pontification regarding the evils of “Islamophobia,” but never one stating the truth that Iran — not “white supremacy” — is indeed the worst threat the Jewish people face.

Please (politely) contact the ADL’s national office and ask them why it takes an outgoing official to make such a statement, when they, as an organization do not.
