The Anti Defamation League: Starting to Figure it Out?

The Anti-Defamation League has long been considered the leaders in the fight against anti-Semitism in America. My own personal observations have left to to believe that they prefer to focus their attention on neo-Nazi and White supremacy types. However, when it comes to anti-Semitism coming from Muslim quarters, they have not stepped up to the plate.

I have frequently said that in my experiences observing the anti-Israel hysteria at UC Irvine evey May courtesy of the Muslim Student Union and now Students for Justice in Palestine, ADL representatives, while being present at these events, have not spoken out.

But thanks to organizations like the AMCHA Initiative and Zionist Organization of America, attention is now being rightly focused on campus anti-Semitism. Now comes this report from the ADL on the subject. Finally. Welcome to the party, ADL.,7340,L-4663546,00.html

Notice that the ADL, while correctly mentioning the BDS drive against Israel, still couldn't bring itself to identify the perpetrators. I will.

We can start with the various chapters of the Muslim Student Associations. Add to that the chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine, many of whose members are the same members of the campus MSA chapter plus some non-Muslims and even leftist Jews. Throw in leftist, anti-Israel professors and the invited activist speakers and there you have it.

None of that was mentioned in the ADL article. I mean, c'mon! If you are going to complain about victims, you need to say who the perps are.
