I'm a proud Jewish American and Zionist. I am seond to none in defending the Jewish people and Zionism. Over a dozen members of my paternal grandmother's family died in the Holocaust and many from the same branch of my family were born and continue to live in Israel (at least 4 generations worth). Members of this branch of my family, including my father, have served with distinction in the armed forces of the U.S., Israel and Poland. I heard Limbaugh make the statements you consider offensive--I find them totally unoffensive and true. I applaud Limbaugh on his statement and I wish more of my fellow Jews would heed his wake-up call. Limbaugh was referring to the true anti-Semites regarding "bankers," not his own views. As for Foxman, he has taken a once-great organization and run it into the ground. His defamation of Limbaugh is only one example of the incompetence and arrogance of the ADL. Recently, ADL falsely claimed credit for remedying the Egyptian exclusion of two Israeli physicians from a Susan G. Komen conference--a lie as the two physicians did not attend and Egypt suffered no consequences. Last year ADL refused to honor my request to investigate and anti-Israel demonstration promoted by a New York City public high school. With the help of a real pro-Israel organization I was able to uncover the source of the problem and engage the NYC Public Schools in a dialogue which is leading to a constructive remedy. Yes, there are some anti-Semites on the right, e.g., Patrick Buchanan, Ann Coulter and Mel Gibson. But they are dwarfed by the huge number of anti-Semitic leftists who have joined hands for 4 decades with radical Islam.
