ADL, religious leaders call on Tillerson to appoint anti-Semitism envoy
Letter sent to US secretary of state urges him to fill position that has been vacant since he took office
ed note–a few items–
1. All can rest assured that the various representatives from those ‘other faiths’ who signed on to this demand did so only because Judea, Inc has embarrassing information on them that would be made public if their ‘jining in’ on this chorus did not materialize.
2. Please, all of you out there making up the ‘Trump is owned by the Jews’ brigade, when was the last time we saw a sitting US President subjected to the kind of pressure that he has been since before he has even taken the oath of office?
George H.W. Bush?
George W. Bush?
The point being, Jews don’t antagonize those who function as gears, pulleys, and drive belts for their machinery, because to do so invites a breakdown of the entire mechanism. They only do this to those who will not submit to their dictates, despite whatever noises/maneuvers one might make–such as Trump–in professing his ‘love and support’ for them as a people and for their pet project in the Middle East.

The Anti-Defamation League, with the support of religious leaders of various faiths, urged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to appoint a special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism.
The letter sent Wednesday asks (DEMANDS) Tillerson to refill the position, which has been empty since the end of Ira Forman’s term five months ago. Two dozen faith leaders, representing Catholics, Muslims, Protestants, Hindus, Sikhs and Jews, signed the letter.
It notes that the post was mandated by an act of Congress in 2004, and takes issue with Tillerson’s assertion earlier this month that in lieu of a dedicated envoy, “all diplomats would be educated enough to work against anti-Semitism.”
Countering the assertion, the ADL letter says that “concerns about anti-Semitism do not always make it onto the agenda of diplomatic meetings, especially when many other legitimate and pressing issues require attention. By contrast, when the Special Envoy meets with foreign officials, anti-Semitism is the agenda.”
The letter also refers to a letter from March in which 167 members of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, emphasized the need for US global leadership in fighting anti-Semitism.
The ADL also recently created an online petition demanding a special envoy be appointed.
The lone staffer in the office monitoring anti-Semitism is currently on a fellowship that was extended recently for 30 days by its sponsor. The fellowship is schedule to conclude at the end of July.
