Applauds Israel PM Netanyahu's Speech At UN - Says Abbas Peace
Song 'Rings Hollow'
Foxman, ADL National Director discusses
Israel's persistent call for peace with the Palestinians.
Israel News Agency
York --- September 28, 2011 .... Days after the Palestinian Authority,
Iran, Syria, Turkey, Hamas and much of the Arab world attacked
the legitimacy of Israel at the UN one can still find several
Jewish organizations standing up for Israel.
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) embraced Israel Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu's speech to the UN General Assembly, in which he unequivocally
repeated Israel's desire for and commitment to peace with the
Palestinians. Netanyahu again agreed for the creation of a peace
seeking Palestinian state through negotiations.
ADL, in a news release, stated
that Netanyahu's words stood in stark contrast to those of Palestinian
President Mahmoud Abbas, whose expression of a desire for peace
with Israel "rings hollow amid his strident accusations against
"Prime Minister Netanyahu carefully and comprehensively set
forth the steps Israel has taken over the years to achieve peace
and reiterated Israel's readiness to make painful compromises
when the Palestinians acknowledge a simple truth - Israel is the
Jewish state," said Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair
and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director in a joint statement.
The ADL added: "In stark contrast to Netanyahu's speech,
PA President Mahmoud Abbas' expression of a desire for peace and
his claim that his UN initiative was not to delegitimize Israel
ring hollow amid his strident accusations against Israel, maximalist
demands and adamant refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
Abbas peppered his speech with incendiary accusations against
Israel and aimed to reposition the Israel Palestinian conflict
not as a territorial conflict, but a religious and racial conflict."
"Netanyahu effectively made a strong case for an immediate
return to negotiations. Netanyahu's suggestion that he and Abbas
meet 'here and now' in New York represents the polar opposite
of Abbas' message to the world. The international community should
urge Abbas to take up this offer."
Just prior to his speech before the General Assembly, Abbas provided
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon with a formal application for
"Palestine" to become a full member of the United Nations
despite appeals from leading members of the international community
to return to direct negotiations and refrain from unilateral and
Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading
organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services
that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
ADL has worked closely with law enforcement for decades to carry
out their mission of protecting both the Jewish people and all
others from extremism, hatred and injustice. Since the 9/11 terrorist
attacks in New York and Washington, the scale of ADL's work with
law enforcement has increased significantly and the greatest demand
for ADL expertise has been in the area of training for law enforcement.
As the foremost non-governmental authority on domestic terrorism,
extremism, organized hate groups and hate crimes, the ADL has
been the leading non-government organization training police.
In 2010 alone, the ADL trained more than 10,500 law enforcement
officers from all over the US.
NO to a Hamas led UN Palestine Terror State, has been established.
