Jewish Federation of Orange County Under Attack (Deservedly So)

Janet Levy has written an op-ed in Arutz Sheva, the Israel National News attacking the Jewish Federation of Orange County, California as being an obstacle in efforts to defend Israel and Zionism on the University of California at Irvine campus. Yours Truly is mentioned in the article.

As far as the referenced report on anti-Semitism on the UCI campus is concerned, I have no issue with it. However, it should be noted that during the same time period, ADL president Abe Foxman spoke to a Jewish group in Newport Beach. I was not present, but an activist friend of mine was and asked Foxman about the problem at UCI. Foxman dismissed it saying that there was no problem on the UCI campus, and that the Jewish students and UCI administrators had it under control.

Hogwash. The report contradicts Foxman's own words.
