In a clear breach of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) “charity” status, that group’s head has openly declared war on Donald Trump. In an interview with the Times of Israel, ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt said that Trump is “mainstreaming bias” toward “a xenophobic, Islamophobic kind of racism.”
At the same time, Greenblatt hypocritically ignores all comments from Israeli leaders which are one hundred times more extreme than anything Trump has said.
Greenblatt went on to say that Trump was introducing “things into the political conversation” which he and the ADL opposed. Greenblatt then went on to list these “things:”
“Suggesting that all the people coming, let’s say from a particular country, are rapists or murderers.
“Or suggesting that we would check people at our gates simply on the basis of what they believe.”
Greenblatt continued by saying that these were all
“[V]ery worrying ideas. And they have a scent that rings familiar, a sound that rings familiar to many of us.
“We as Jews know what it means when they say that people coming from another country are all a problem.”
We know what it means (when they say) we have to check you at the door on the basis of what you believe.”
The ADL, he continued, had
“[B]een mandated for more a century to both stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and security for all. So we speak up for these things because they are very worrying…
“The idea that you judge people — where they’re from, what they believe — and don’t unequivocally, unambiguously, instantaneously, condemn people espousing some of those worst ideas, we’ve seen this before and it’s never been good.”
The ADL’s “mandate to speak up” of course only applies to non-Jews. Greenblatt was completely silent when his fellow Jews make statements one hundred times more inciting, racist, vicious, and defamatory than anything Trump has ever said.
For example, Greenblatt and the ADL never said a word when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was going to “surround all of Israel with a fence” to protect the Jewish state from Arab “wild beasts.”
Greenblatt’s attack on Trump’s alleged “Islamophobia” is just as hypocritical. Greenblatt and the Israel-supporting ADL know very well that Israel’s Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law 5763, makes citizens of Iran, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip ineligible for residency in Israel, even if they are married to an Israeli citizen.
The law was most recently extended in June 2015 (“Controversial citizenship law that bans Palestinians married to Israelis from living in Israel extended by the Knesset,” the Independent, June 17, 2015).
This “Islamophobia” extends way beyond anything Trump has ever said—and it makes a mockery of Greenblatt’s whining about “knowing what it means when they say that people coming from another country are all a problem.”
As if all this was not enough, Israeli immigration law goes even further, and specifically limits all immigration to that state to those who can prove biological—in other words, racial—Jewish descent.
Israel’s immigration laws are controlled by the “Law of Return” of 1950, as amended in 1970, and the 1952 “Citizenship Law.”
The Law of Return grants the exclusive right of entry and settlement to people who could show Jewish ancestry, while the Citizenship law determines who can qualify for Israeli citizenship.
The Law of Return uses the same definition of Jewish ancestry as used by the Nazis in the 1936 Nuremberg Laws.
Israel also outlaws all marriages between Jews and non-Jews, and the legal loophole which allowed non-Jewish spouses to acquire Israeli citizenship through marriage outside of Israel was closed in 1999.
Finally, it is a blatant breach of the ADL’s tax-exempt charity status to engage in such vitriolic attacks on Trump.
Under the terms of the Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), an organization “may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.”
The ADL’s blatant breach of this code would, under normal circumstances, lead to this extremist Jewish Supremacist pressure group being closed down and its leaders charged—but because the US government is totally under the control of the Jewish lobby, this of course will not happen.
