My appearance on the Top Story Podcast on JNS with Jonathan Tobin: "Many of the mainstream, so-called Jewish organizations, particularly like ADL, that grew up fighting anti-Semitism, have now sold themselves out to the progressive movement."...

To nobody's surprise, a new controversy has arisen surrounding California schools. This time, parents in the Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) are up in arms over what they say is the school system's political indoctrination of their children under the guise of combatting racism.

Anti-Israel activists thrive in darkness. On campuses and municipalities, they spend months and sometimes years planning attacks on Israel that are often unveiled only at the last second, leaving Israel advocates scrambling. That is unfolding with a vile antisemitic campaign called "Deadly Exchange," which seeks to blame Israel and American Jewish groups for domestic U.S. problems in the policing of minority communities. Run by the misleadingly named Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Deadly Exchange seeks to exploit pre-existing domestic racial tensions to stoke antisemitism in order to turn minority communities against Israel.

This post originally was published by The Gatestone Institute, under the title What Happened to the ADL? Cross-posted with permission. --------------- In the months leading up to the U.S. presidential election in November 2016, a former director of the World Jewish Congress decried the direction in which the new head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was taking the international human rights group. In a series of columns, Isi Leibler -- a prominent Australian Israeli -- blasted ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, for turning the 100-year-old organization, whose mission is to monitor and expose anti-Semitism and other forms of racism, into a platform that "represents an echo chamber of left-wing Democratic politics."
