Carolyn Glick on Trump, the ADL and "the Squad"

Hat tip Zionist Organization of America

Carolyn Glick, editor of the Jerusalem Post, has fascinating things to say in this interview below.  Here she gives great praise to President Trump, not only for being a friend to Israel, but for standing up to anti-Semitism. Glick does not have kind words, however, for Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, a Democrat liberal hack, who condemns Trump even as he (Trump) stands up to anti-Semitism.

Glick is correct. How weird is it that when Trump rightfully criticizes people like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their blatant anti-Semitism, he gets attacked by people like Greenblatt, a liberal hack, who only seeks to advance the progressive cause. And that means no mention of Islamic anti-Semitism, the 800 pound gorilla in the back of the room.

This is what I have become to expect from the ADL. It was bad enough under the previous head, Abe Foxman, a man who once denied there was any problem of anti-Semitism at UC Irvine, where I used to teach and where I saw it and heard it first-hand.

Kudos to Ms Glick for her candid remarks. As someone who cares deeply about the propblem of anti-Semitism, I really believe there are a lot of people in the American Jewish community who need to wake up and recognize the threat they are facing.
