ADL condemned the “boundless hypocrisy” of the U.N. Human Rights Council, which in a lopsided vote adopted yet another one-sided resolution against Israel. "Once again," National Director Abraham Foxman said, "the Human Rights Council speaks in one unified voice against Israel for defending its citizens against ceaseless acts of terror while ignoring human rights violations elsewhere around the world that affect millions."
In the aftermath of the shocking violence against Jews in Western Europe the past year, the level of anti-Semitic attitudes among the general population in France showed a dramatic decline, while Germany and Belgium registered significant reductions, according to a new ADL poll, which surveyed 19 countries. The polling is a follow-up to the League’s groundbreaking 2014 Global 100 survey which measured anti-Semitic attitudes in 102 countries and territories.
"Most important, fighting extremism, no matter the source, should never be a partisan issue. We must take extremist threats seriously from wherever they emerge, whether domestic Islamic extremists radicalized by ISIS or rightwing extremists radicalized by white supremacist and antigovernment websites. There should be no competition, because if we fail to address any threat, we all lose."
Mark Pitcavage, Director of ADL’s Center on Extremism, from The New York Times “Room for Debate” blog on addressing domestic extremism and the importance of strong hate crime laws.
