ADL welcomed the U.N. General Assembly informal plenary session on the rise in anti-Semitic violence worldwide, noting the importance of the body’s "long overdue" recognition of the urgent need to address the increasingly tragic consequences of the rise of anti-Jewish animus around the world.
ADL said it was shocked and deeply saddened by the death of Alberto Nisman, the Argentine special prosecutor investigating the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people and wounded hundreds more. ADL called the death of Mr. Nisman “another tragic episode that will extend the decades-long delays in bringing the Iranian masterminds and perpetrators to justice.”
"It is appropriate that the UN, which is the center of the international community, address this issue separately and distinctly, it’s long overdue. This idea that anti-Semitism has to be dealt with in the place where it is most needed to be dealt with — in Arab and Muslim world — is probably greatest challenge that we face."
Michael Salberg, ADL Director of International Affairs, from an interview with The Jerusalem Post on the UN session addressing global anti-Semitism.
