Abraham Foxman to Jews: Stay on the Reservation

Seventy-eight percent of American Jews voted for Barack Obama, and in the wake of Obama’s betrayal of Israel, Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League is trying to keep them on the reservation.

One wonders why Foxman even bothers with this dangerous fool’s errand. Obama has associated with antisemites and Palestinian jihad sympathizers throughout his political career, such that the Jews and supporters of Israel who voted for him in 2008 should be in full backpedal mode by now, apologizing for their earlier support for this clear enemy of Israel and dedicating themselves to defeating him in 2012.

But apparently Foxman’s pride is more important to him than the survival of Israel as the Jewish homeland and the sole bulwark of freedom and human rights in the Middle East. And so instead of renouncing his earlier support for Obama and taking a stand for Israel when that embattled country needs it the most, he has opted to pretend that Obama’s statement really wasn’t all that bad, and that Jews and all supporters of Israel should relax and keep on loving Barack Hussein Obama.

“I don’t see this as the president throwing Israel under the bus,” Foxman told Greg Sargent of the Washington Post. “He’s saying with `swaps.’ It’s not 1967 borders in the abstract. It’s not an edict. It’s a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.”

Foxman was referring to Obama’s statement that “the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”

Foxman apparently believes that Obama’s statement about “the 1967 lines” is the core of the problem that those who are appalled by Obama’s speech have with it – thus his emphasis that “it’s not an edict,” but simply a “recommendation.” He added that “there is a danger that the 1967 marker, which was always there but has never been stated so directly, may become this year’s settlements issue.” But, he repeated, “it’s not an edict — it’s not what he did with settlements.”

In this Foxman overlooked what most mainstream media reports about Obama’s speech also overlooked: that he wasn’t calling for a return to the pre-Six Day War borders at all, but to new borders “based on the 1967 lines,” and creating “two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine.”

This would be even worse for Israel than a return to the 1967 lines. A Palestinian state that bordered on Israel, Jordan and Egypt while Israel bordered only on Palestine would mean a substantially reduced Israel, having been forced to cede much of its core territory to the Palestinian Arabs in exchange for the chimera of peace with what are in fact implacable and unappeasable jihadis. Abraham Foxman should have learned from the disastrous aftermath of Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza that territorial concessions to the Palestinian jihadis do not bring peace and never will bring peace. Instead, Foxman declared Friday that Obama’s speech “indicated to me that this administration has come a long way in better understanding and appreciating the difficulties facing both parties, but especially Israel in trying to make peace with the Palestinians.”

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu disagreed. Meeting with Obama at the White House on Friday, he emphasized that “while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace … it cannot go back to 1967 lines, because these lines are indefensible.” Netanyahu didn’t say it, but clearly he was not going to accept anything worse than the 1967 lines, either.

Apparently sensing that Obama was also preparing to back the spurious “right of return” for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Palestinian Arab refugees (who were not offered citizenship by any of the neighboring Arab states except Jordan), Netanyahu declared: “The Palestinian refugee problem will have to be resolved within the context of a Palestinian state but certainly not within the borders of Israel. That’s not gonna happen. Everybody knows it’s not gonna happen. And I think it’s time to tell the Palestinians it’s not gonna happen.”

It’s noteworthy that Netanyahu thought it necessary to say this even though Obama did not mention the refugee problem in his Thursday speech. Netanyahu, unlike Foxman, can tell which way the wind is blowing in the White House, and has no illusions. But Foxman’s persistent self-delusions showed through again in the statement he issued through the ADL, along with Robert G. Sugarman, the ADL’s National Chair. Foxman and Sugarman declared: “We welcome President Obama’s compelling speech on the priorities for American policy in the Middle East.  We applaud his strong outlining of the principles which motivate that policy, including supporting the universal rights of free speech, equality and religious freedom, opposing the use of force and political repression, and promoting political and economic reforms.  These are a reflection of American values and promote American interests.”

There is, however, no indication that the revolutions in the Middle East, which Obama spent quite some time hailing, will lead to regimes that will have any interest in protecting free speech; the freedom of peaceful assembly; freedom of religion; or equality for men and women under the rule of law. Instead, in country after country pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists seem to be gaining the upper hand, just as I predicted.

With similar blinkered vision and naivete, Foxman and Sugarman stated: “We support the President’s vision of a negotiated Israeli-Palestinian settlement with strong security provisions for Israel, and a non-militarized Palestinian state.  We appreciate his direct rejection of a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state and his understanding that the Hamas-Fatah agreement poses major problems for Israel.”

They didn’t seem to notice or care that Obama had not made the dissection of Israel or the creation of a Palestinian state contingent upon the dissolution of the new ties between Hamas and Fatah, or their acceptance of a “non-militarized” state. His statement about their need to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist was ambiguous enough to satisfy (or enrage) both sides.

And so if the aftermath of this speech follows the pattern of earlier attempts to bring peace to the Middle East, the Israelis will be forced to make genuine concessions in exchange for Palestinian promises that will quickly be broken – although no one will be holding them accountable for that.

So it goes, and so it will go, until the jihadis destroy Israel utterly, or someone in Washington gets a clue. Whichever comes first.

Abe Foxman should have noticed the pattern of Israeli concessions and Palestinian broken promises years ago, and started alerting the Jewish people and all friends of Israel to it. Then he would never have issued his statement of support for Obama Friday. Indeed, he never would have supported Obama in the first place.

    Abraham Foxman is such a disappointment. He supported the forcible uprooting of law-abiding Jews from Gush Katif, Gaza in 2005, only because they were Jews. Now this.

    • ajnn

      Let us remember that the '2005 Withdrawal' was implemented on the 100th anniversary of the 'Gaza Massacre of 1905' when Gaza became , for the 1st time, Arab.

        I am interested in reading more about the "Gaza Massacre of 1905". The info on Gaza I find on searches is vast amounts of recent history. Can you tell us more about what happened in 1905? Links would be great. Thanks.

        • ajnn

          Just 'google' Gaza 1905 massacre.

          There is plenty of information on thios awful event. the granddaughter of the village's rabbi survived and there are photos of what the village looked like and its synogogue.

    why are some Jews so stupid? the answer is quite simple – they are anti-Torah Jews and a Jew without the Torah is like a hug without arms and a kiss without lips…
    there are many such idiots (in the true sense of the word) as Foxman, they can never be convinced otherwise, they will be looney-leftists until their last breath, there is no remedy for such stupidity… sad but true…

  • reneeca

    I watch in amazement the Jews that are interviewed on TV who are jumping through hoops trying to rationalize Obama's stance on his statements about drawing back to the 1967 lines! I hear one person on talk radio say that he voted for Obama in the last election and than proceeded to talk about everything his has done wrong but especially offended by Obama's statement on this issue only to be asked if he was going to vote for Obama in the next election and inferred he would if he could explain on this issue better! These people are delusional and pathetic! I believe they will still vote in great numbers for Obama no matter what he says or does. Incredible!

    • Nodhimmi

      Too many American people are shallow minded when it comes to politics in general, and are especially naive when the topic of Israel /Mid East/ Jews / islam.
      They tend to view islam and it's zealots as exotic and benelovent like it's Buddhism or something. They don't realize that islam has a mandate to subjugate everyone to sharia laws.

  • michiganruth

    I just went to the ADL website to send Foxman an email telling him how I felt about these comments. for "subject," the dropdown offered me several choices including "Report Anti-Semitic Incident."

    I chose that and started my email, "I'd like to report an incident. yesterday, Barack Obama's speech where he threw Israel under the bus."

    childish? maybe. but it felt good.

      He is not saying anything different than a whole lot of people on the center and the left here in America, as well as lot of people right, center, left in Europe. Israel lost the PR war in the world years before President Obama.

      • Roy

        Arabs have successfully changed the narrative to make them be the victims through the creation of a Palestine people while there is no linguistic, or ethnic or religious different between them and the Arabs of other Muslims countries. While making Israel look like a foreign white Western outpost that kicked out the indigenous Arab people there. No one now takes seriously that Arabs and Muslims have been the aggressors trying their best to wipe out Israel and will never stop, nor do they pay attention to the Arabs constantly refering to an Arab nation that all Arabs belong to or their drive to create one Arab nation to under Islam EVEN THOUGH it is actually written in both charters of Fatah, Hamas, PLO, and countries like Egypt. But that is dismissesed as untrue though Arabs write it down as their goal.

        • Guest

          The arabs have created a false history from lies and propaganda!!!!!!!!!!

        "Israel lost the PR war in the world years before President Obama."

        Israel has no more lost the PR war than the Tea Party has. Like the Tea Party, Israel has never been allowed to fight it–having the enemy side as the gatekeepers of all messages is a bit of a downer in any PR war.

        When the Jewish State finally reveals an iron fist instead of kid gloves in this PR war, by forcing the hostile media outlets to stop their aiding and abetting of the Islamic imperialist agenda, then it will win the PR war.

        To Roy!

        The survival of Israel is not about A PR WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Israel was too busy, fighting it's life, with the dam Arabs, the last 63 years, to have time to fight a PR wars.

    What makes anyone think Abe Foxman is a Jew? He's an atheist just like Obama – so of course they are siding with the Moslems (and sharia which is part and parcel of Islam) and against Israel and the Jews.

    God help the Jews if they trust anything Foxman says. Fortunately it looks like younger Jews don't think much of the ADL.

    • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

      ADL is busy "building interfaith bridges" and embracing Moslems! (After all, the stones have not yet shouted: "Here is a Jew behind me. Come to kill him"). It was (of all institutions) the Jewish ADL which recently denounced the legislative proposals in several states to ban … Sharia (!) in those states. At that ADL is known to fight for the Bolshevik goal of "Separation of Church and State" and removing of the G0d from American public arena (very "Jewish" business, mind you). Oh yes: ADL fights also against Prop. 8 i.e. against preservation of Marriage as defined in Torah (also very "Jewish" business).

      Isn't this alone the best illustration of the incapability of Jewry to properly assess the social situation crucial for their own survival?!

    Maybe Mr. Foxworth has never ridden a bus! I’m a Christian and have watched obamas rise in politicics since his speech at the Democratic Convention. Why anyone would vote for him I have no clue except that the liberals painted Bush as such a horrible choice that anyone would be better. But what really bothers me is that young people of the Jewish and Christian faiths are willing to vote for people these. We all could write books as to the reason why. Rember the elderly also voted in large numbers too. I fear for our freedom and my grandchildrens future!

    I am a Christian.. perhaps .. The Amercian Jew should compare Foxman to Soros?? I would disreguard anything Foxman states….

    Any Jew that votes for Obama is not a JEW!

    • Underzog

      Any Jew that votes for "the Messiah" cares nothing for his fellow Jews. Liberalism is not a religion a Jew should follow. They would be better off with their own Judaism than that. The welfare state is not a philosophy, but a bunch of cynical, stop gap measures by Otto Von Bismarck who wanted to take the wind out of the Labor movement in Prussia/Germany. Not to be taken seriously as a philosophy as Christianity and Judaism are.

    Foxman is a traitorous worm. The ADL is a sham. It only serves 2 purposes:1. it is a cash cow for vermin like Foxman , and 2. it allows Foxman to be a type of celebrity with easy access to the media. If the ADL was a truly an organization dedicated to defending Jews against discrimination, they would be heavily involved involved in , for example, defending Jewish students who are the subject verbal and physical abuse and harassment on several campuses of the University of California. Foxman is a Kapo.

        Just finished reading your essay. Excellent!

        "The Ethnic-only Jews were so sincere and enthusiastic in their adherence to Bolshevism, that they participated in the most shameful actions of the Bolsheviks – and that took place in Russia of all places! "

        It's my hypothesis that it was the Ashkenazi/Khazar (atheist) Jews who were at the heart of the Russian Revolution. More barbarian Khazar than Jew. The barbarism of that era was atypical of Jews. I believe its the legacy of the Khazar "Jews" that's at work in today's turmoil.

      • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

        Thank you Maxie. Yet it was not in the essay as though I traced emergence of Marxism to a particular ethnicity or to a particular Jewish tribe: not at all! Those days in 19th century the mental infection of Marxism was in the air contagious for everybody, but atheists were more susceptible indeed.

        All ethnicities of Russia then had been trapped by the brutal dictatorship faster than they realized it. It is the Western Jewry and Christianity more to blame for their susceptibility to Marxism since then and up to these days.

  • Steve Markom

    Foxman, like so many American Jews, have become capitulators and useful idiots of the anti-Israel Democrats. The ADL as a result has become a joke for Jews. I compare Foxman to people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who claim to represent the interests of African Americans when in fact their only interests are to keep them in line for Democrats who have done nothing to advance their best interests. Foxman with his continued unwavering support of the blatantly anti-Israel Obama does nothing to help Jews and Israel.

  • David

    This is what German Jews did in the '30's while being rounded up and sent to ghettos. I always thought that it was G-d's way of preparing the Jewish people to become Israelis. Get rid of the weak by natural selection so that we could be strong and defend our homeland. Foxman is a '30's German Jew who, like Soros, is a tool of the nazis.

    Foxman's disgusting attitude reminds me of a sick but very pertinent joke. It's World War 2 and in Germany. 2 Jews stand before a Nazi firing squad, their hands tied behind their backs. The squad leader asks the "Jewish pigs" whether they have any last words. The 1st Jew begins to curse Hitler and all the Nazis and their unborn great-grandchildren. The 2nd Jew nudges him and says, "Hans, don't make trouble!"

  • John Noble

    The persecution of the Jews during the Middle Ages thru WWII formed the false impression in the Jewish mind that socialism and communism were their friends. The Allied powers did not trust the Jews because of their affiliation with the Bolshevik revolution, and indeed the writer of the Communist Manifesto was a Jew, Karl Marx. Jews cling to the false illusion that their only security in this life is to hang onto the tail of some Utopian political movement. This is based on their really stupid and “stiff-necked” belief that the return of the Messiah is dependent on ringing in an age of peace, i.e. perfecting the Devil’s world, which AIN’T gonna happen. God himself scattered them to the far corners of the earth for their rejection of the Kingdom that was theirs IF they had not rejected the Promised One sent 2,000 years ago. In the meantime, they are doing great harm to the best friend they have ever had on this earth, the United States of America. Foxman is the poster child for Jewish blindness.

  • Maxie

    To me, a non Jew, Foxman represents the Jew who has traded his Judaism for the secular religion of radical Left political activism. 'Peace' via appeasement never has, and never will, work. Foxman and the ADL should turn off the lights, lock the door and throw away the key. Netanyahu brilliantly put childe Obama to shame. Long live Israel.

    I warned my fellow Jews not to vote for Obama. I am a conservative Jew who is a Republican and has never voted Democratic. Especially now since the radicals took over the Democratic Party. Now Soros is in control of all that is wrong with the world including Obama.

    Leave Foxman alone, he's too busy picking fights with evangelicals who overwhelmingly support Israel, those are his only preceived enemies, not Barack Obama and his Arab appeasing/Israel bashing administration. Barack, in Foxman's demented liberal mind, can't possibly harbor anti-semitic sentiments because he's a man of the left and liberalism has replaced the Torah for Jews in name only like Foxman, therefore Obama and likeminded liberals are proxy Jews in Foxman's bizarre way of thinking.

  • Dobermite

    But on a serious note, the ADL like the NAACP and other leftist organizations are in truth not the least bit concerned with the people they supposedly represent, but are instead just extensions of the DNC and their sole purpose is to promote liberalism, support liberals, slander conservatives, and marginalize/demonize conservatism within the confines of their respective communities. That is the sole purpose for the existence of organizations such as the ADL and Jewish/Israeli interest, on those rare occasions when there is any and when they are not acting counter to Jewish/Israeli interest (as is the case far more often than the former), is merely incidental.

    Any Person claiming to be a Jew and supporting Obama is NOT A JEW, but an ex-Jew who has adopted the false religion of false Liberalism. As i quoted before, they will be personally responsible for the death of Jews in Israel.. Voting for Democrats who support Obama also falls under this category. Perhaps the Democrats who support Israel might talk some sense to their leader, or are they too concerned with their own futures to care about their responsibilities. I would like to see some courage on their part. Where are you: Chas. Shummer, Levin, the California Senators and reps like Waxman, and their associates, plus their friends in the movie industries? Foxman falls in with them. Are they hanging out with the Jew hating Soros?

    • Peter Hochberg

      It is interesting how the Jews of today, have demonstrated the errors of yesterday. The ADL was founded to ensure Jews were not discriminated against, by monitoring every publication that contained damaging content to the existence of Jews. It would appear that Foxman is either stupid or knowingly a false Jew. Since he has become the head of the ADL the traditional defence of freedom and free speach is now regularly attacked by the ADL.

      It is clear that those Jewish parents who can afford to send their children to colllege can now point to there childrens conversion from Jew to Progressive. During the early days of WWll, every Jew who had a good job and a respectible life, felt that the NAZI government would not hurt the Jews. Until they started to be rounded up. Today in the US, we had the same clear worning this week about our own Jewish future. But watch our elected Jews endorse the same ant-semitic supporter as his German relatives holding public office did. Well, at least until they rounded them up.

  • Miriam Kaplan

    I had been bothered by the idea of a 'contiguous' state for the Palestinians, thinking that it meant a corridor from Gaza to Samaria, cutting Israel in two. But Robert Spencer made me think through the fact that Israel is only to have a border with Palestine – i.e., not with Egypt, Lebanon or Syria.

    That means that in the south, the plan is to deprive Israel of the Negev and to give it to the Palestinians. Palestine is to surround Israel on the south, wrapping around from Gaza south to the Negev, east across the Negev and then north to meet Samaria. That means depriving Israel of access to Eilat and the Red Sea – and shipping and the mineral ores in the area.

    As Israel is only to have a border with Palestine, it also means that Israel is no longer to have a border with Lebanon or Syria. That certainly means the surrender of the Golan Heights, but it also may mean a Palestinian corridor across the north.

    Why were all those people at AIPAC cheering him today ?

    Foxman, like Barak Hussein Obama work for George Soros. Goerge has lot's of Jewish blood on his hands, made his fortune from loot(Gold Jewish teeth) confiscated by Nazi's who later turned it over to Soros to invest, Foxman's boss and close buddy!

    Foxman and Sugarman are Democrats–knee jerks, like that other 78%. They still vote for FDR. The trimes have changed, Foxman. WAKE UP!

    Abe Foxman, of Bergenfield, NJ, is an embarrassment. He is a fool and should not be tolerated. Whenever he is home there is a security guard in a car parked in front of his house. I believe the guard is there to protect the "sly fox" from his fellow Jews who hate him. I am not a violent person but I do raise my middle finger in salute whenever misfortune finds me near his lair.

    I envision a photograph of Abe Foxman and the Officers and Directors of The New A.D.L. All are wearing battle fatigues, holding Uzis, with ammo belts draped over their shoulders, kippas atop their heads.
    Now THAT would inspire me to re-join the A.D..

    I stopped supporting the adl when Foxman attacked Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and the Tea Party people. I told them when they actually started focusing on real enemies of the jew and Israel,(the radical left and the muslims), I might consider supporting them again. I see no change, so they will not receive a dime from me.

    i AM EQUALLY DISAPPOINTED I THINK AMERICA SHOULD CHANGE IT'S NAME FROM UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO JEWISH AMERICA. history is repeating itself again the poor jewish people are being abused again…..IF WE COULD ONLY FIND PRESIDENT OBAMA A NICE JEWISH MISTRESS LIFE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER….I CALL ALL JEWS TO FIND PRESIDENT OABAM A NICE JEWISH MISTRESS AND BRING AN END TO THIS ABUSE OF ISRAEL. Thank you FB P.S. And why don't we send some more BILLIONS of dollars to help the poor Jews out in Israel….they need our FEDERAL TAXPAYER MONEY……HOW CAN A NICE JEW SURVIVE WITHOUT MONEY AND A MISTRESS ?

    Abe Foxman stepped over ADL's misssion. The ADL mission is purely and simply Anti- Defamation, and not poitics.
    He, or any other officail of ADL needs to publish a restatement.

    The comments here are so funny. I never understood why so many Jews are Democrats? It doesn't make sense. Kind of against your self interest.

    Abe history I challenge again.

    I challenge what United States Armed Forces Naval ship he claims he severed on?

    I challenge where the court records are in Europe where he claims his family filed to get him back-I have investigated and those records are not on file in Europe.

    I challenge him why he supports sex/hate crimes committed on Muslim wife by Las Vegas Israeli dual citizen Michael Segelstein Rabbi to son-in-law to Congress Shelley Berkley Rabbi?

    Why does he support lies and persecution on women who came close to death on life support and corruption to report the real truth?

    Why does he support harassing an American Indian Naval Vet who was dying in the Muskogee VA hospital the victims father?
