The League welcomed President Obama’s executive action on immigration, calling it “an important step toward fixing our nation’s broken immigration system,” and expressed hope that the president and Congress will work together in a bipartisan spirit to enact reform that will fix the broader system.
ADL expressed shock and outrage at the brutal terrorist attack inside a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood, where four Israeli Jews at prayer and one police officer were killed. ADL called the condemnation of the violence by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas “woefully inadequate” and urged Palestinian leaders to do more to put a stop to incitement against Israel.
"His half hearted statement is woefully inadequate. Had Mr. Abbas spoken out against earlier terror attacks, lives may have been saved."
Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article in The Wall Street Journal on the terror attack in Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority President Abbas’ condemnation.
