Republican Jewish Coalition Criticizes ADL for Treatment of Trump During Campaign
JNS.org – The head of a major Jewish Republican organization criticized the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for its treatment of Donald Trump throughout his presidential campaign, The Forward reported.
“I think that the ADL has put itself potentially in a compromising position going forward, in terms of its ability to interact with the incoming administration,” said Republican Jewish Coalition executive director Matt Brooks, in a Wednesday conference call.
In October, the ADL released a report detailing the antisemitic harassment of journalists online during the election cycle, and largely blamed the phenomenon on Trump supporters.
ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said his organization, “has never taken sides in elections.”
“For more than one hundred years, we have called out antisemitism and other forms of bigotry whenever we see it and wherever its source,” Greenblatt said. “This is not a matter of politics, but of principles.”
