Meanwhile, Obama’s DOJ now stresses fighting hate crimes against Muslims, under directives from Attorney General Eric Holder and his assistant, Thomas Perez, though there were five to six times more hate crimes against Jews than Muslims.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chair of the House Homeland Security committee, also criticized Attorney General Holder, in April, for stopping indictments of suspected money transfers to Islamic terrorists as part of the Holy Land Foundation case.
So, why is the ADL defending the Obama Department of Justice that puts out a special effort to stop “hate crimes” against Muslims, when there six times as many hate crimes against Jews? Why is ADL going out of its way to help a Justice Department that helps Muslim front organizations?
Why is the Reform Jewish leadership saying that anyone who asks sensible questions about Islamic penetration of US government institutions is a McCarthyist conspiracy monger? After all, the reform rabbis and the ADL are NOT the second coming of William Kunstler, the Jewish lawyer who never passed by a radical cause.
One suspects that it has less to do with conviction than in striking a pose, trying to seem liberal and tolerant—even to terrorists and those who help them.
Beyond the political positions, the Jewish defenders of Islamic groups argue that harsh treatment of suspected terrorists or their backers is unseemly and is actually another victory for the Arab-Islamic terrorists.
“Let us not forget that Muslims were among those murdered on 9/11, and that our Muslim neighbors grieved with us as New Yorkers and as Americans,” said Mayor Bloomberg as he backed the mosque at the 9-11 site. “To cave to popular sentiment would be to hand a victory to the terrorists, and we should not stand for that.”
One can almost hear Lenin joking about “useful idiots.”
