Holder Visits ADL, Ignores Anti-Semitism, Talks about Helping Muslims

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Eric Holder

Somehow I don’t think Holder will visit CAIR and spend most of his time talking about Anti-Semitism. But Obama Inc. keeps showing where its priorities lie and who it stands with.

“Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing – and I want to assure you that my colleagues and I are determined to hold accountable, to the fullest extent of the law, all of those who were responsible for this attack,” Holder said, according to the prepared text of a speech delivered Monday to the Anti-Defamation League. “But I also want to make clear that – just as we will pursue relentlessly anyone who would target our people or attempt to terrorize our cities – the Justice Department is firmly committed to protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation.”

Protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation is how American soldiers in Afghanistan died as they were denied air and artillery support under Obama Inc.

But if Holder’s DOJ were as ruthless and prolific in going after Muslim terrorists the way they are in defending Muslims, the Boston marathon massacre would never have happened.

The backlash against Muslims that Holder and his Islamist pals were whining about never happened. Even the Islamist groups have been forced to admit that.

Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which monitors bias and hate crimes against Muslims, said his organization has seen no uptick in reports of harassment, assaults or damage to mosques since the April 15 bombings.

So instead Holder praised his interference in local zoning regulations to carve out special privileges for a mosque.

In July of last year, the Department filed suit against a Tennessee county for discriminating against local Muslims by refusing to allow a new mosque to open.  ADL wrote and filed a brief to aid in this case, on behalf of a broad interfaith coalition.   The congregation encountered vandalism, threats of violence, and steep public opposition.   But the Department obtained a court order requiring county authorities to stand aside and honor First Amendment rights – and the congregation was permitted to worship in their new facility.

Tellingly Holder failed to mention a single specific incident or act of Anti-Semitism that the DOJ dealt with despite the fact that Jews are ten times more likely to be the victims of hate crimes than Muslims.

Holder paid some lip service to the existence of Anti-Semitism, but failed to mention repeated Muslim terrorist attacks against synagogues. Instead he mentioned a fight over a mosque’s zoning issues… without mentioning its extremism.

Two Muslims were just sentenced for conspiring to blow up a synagogue. It would have been the most obvious thing for Holder to have mentioned it. Instead he ignored it and didn’t even bother to deal with the topic and went on to talk about helping build a mosque.

The underlying message in Holder’s speech is that when a Muslim has a zoning problem with a mosque, it’s more important than when Muslims try to blow up a synagogue.

That kind of tolerance of Muslim Anti-Semitism is what has made Europe so dangerous to Jews. And the ADL has chosen to betray its mission by collaborating with it. Holder and Obama Inc. are showing the same willingness to tolerate Muslim Anti-Semitism while endlessly wasting time on the fantastic specter of an Islamophobia that never arrives.

    Holder is simply an Ivy League shyster and anti-Semite, an operative of The Moslem Brotherhood. The A.D.L.'s "leadership" is as ineffectual as it was during WW2 and the years leading up to it. It basically pushes a secular, liberal ideology, including "gun control," "diversity," and lgbt normalization.

      Hate crimes against Jews are much more prevalent than they are against Muslims. Muslims are taught that Jews are descended from apes and pigs and that Jews are their most hated enemy. Jews and Christians need to unite to fight the common enemy – Islam.

  • tommasina scott

    holder and obummer will stand solidly behind the Muslims. LOOK at the crime rates we already live with. having this much crime esp if it turns on jews and whites is all about what the blacks leaders want

  • tommasina scott

    if all the hate the muslims and blacks were spewing towards whites and Jews was turned on blacks there would be an outcry to do something about it. this just goes to show obummer and the blacks are out to get whites dead

    Ok, and how about the mezuzot arson in NYC? Done by a latino (wait for it……) convert to you-know-what. How about the FACT that the FBI was playing social worker to Tamerlane & his mommy from as early as 2008??? They KNEW. The speed-bump was UNDER SURVEILLANCE. The FBI was apparently more concerned with grooming a home-grown informant than the SECURITY OF U.S. CITIZENS (which is the only reason I can see that Tamerlane was not *immediately* identified as a suspect in the 9/11/11 murders of three Jews– one of whom was a "friend.")
    We have descended to a really evil, crazy place in this nation….

    Who does he think we are, Muslims? We are not like them, this is the problem. Our people (Christians, Jews, Atheists, Buddhists, Scientologists et al) do not riot over a YouTube video. We don't murder people of cartoons. We don't need to be reminded of these things, MUSLIMS DO!!!!

    Holder is no different than the rest of the cabinet. They are chosen because they are pro muslim. If they forget, they just open their desk drawers and reread their mantra. "Thou shalt stand up for the muslims and ignore the muslim attacks on Jews and their property"

    We will know when we have good leadership in this country when we refuse to allow Muslims to immigrate to our country. When we round up the Muslim and shut down the mosques. We are literally an open door for a Muslim take over. They make it very clear what their goal is. I don't see these thousands of so-called peaceful Muslim crying out for world peace. Put an end to violence. No I don't see rallies or hear news of any of that. The reason we don't see violence or "backlash" against Muslims is because we are a peaceful people who don't condone violence. The Jews said NEVER AGAIN after the holocaust. Americans said NEVER AGAIN after 9/11. Now we have Boston. What is next. If we really want NEVER AGAIN. We better do something about it before it becomes our way of life.

      I for one, stand with you.
      Why have the Muslims been emigrating to basically Christian countries, (England, US, Canada, Australia etc?)
      Have those politicians in very country not noticed the aganda of Islam, which they keep on repeating?
      Islam will take over the world and convert the world into Islam with a Caliphate to rule with sharia as the world law.

      The best that these Christian countries can do, is
      1. Stop all immigration of Muslims.
      2. Keep an eye open on any Islamic movements and send them to their desets from whence they came.
      Look what is happening in US jails. The black convicts are being converted to Islam by Muslim convicts, and they become the biggest criminals.

        It seems so obvious yet if you dare to say anything you are an Islamophobe. When our President tells us we need an education in Islam, I say no, they need an education in humanity.

    This administration with Hussein Obama as leader is anti-Semitic overall. Court Jews devoted to Leftists under name Dem's party establishment and personally to their leader Obama are among them and traitor of Jews citizens, self-hatred anti-Semites as well. It were many times in history, so no surprise.
    Leftists have the same goal as Islamists which is Power forever. On this stage they are ally. Obama Inc. protect Islamic terrorists and for domestic use make something that he fight terrorism. Only gullible people still believe in it. Actually WH is accomplices of Islamic terrorists. Only one word: Treason.

      Are we doing anything about it? As our country uses our tax dollars to fund the "Muslim Brotherhood. and buys weapons from Russia for Syria? I can't believe we as citizens allow this to happen.

      There is so many bad decisions being made behind closed doors. Whatever happened to the President of transparency. Actually he is very transparent. You only need a brain to see what is really going on in this country. We need to contact our congressmen/women and let them know how we feel on a daily basis.

      Come election time vote them all out. Time to clean house and get rid of these traitors.
