The ADL gets one right, blasts new EU sanctions on Israel

The Anti-Defamation League gets a lot wrong on Israel, particularly when it comes to the threat that Islam represents to us. But they have gotten the Europeans' new sanctions right.
In a letter to Catherine Ashton, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission, Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, stated: "President [Mahmoud] Abbas has blocked the process with his pre-conditions, so who does the EU pressure?  Israel.  Who gets a free pass?  The Palestinians."

Foxman called on the EU to end its "long-standing habit of not holding the Palestinian Authority responsible for its actions and inactions that are unequivocally obstacles to peace."

Commenting on the directives target, ADL stated settlements should not be considered an obstacle to peace.

"Successive Israeli governments from the start of the peace process, including the current one, have maintained that construction beyond the 'Green Line'does not contradict the Israeli commitment to a negotiated resolution of all the core issues," ADL stated in the letter to the EU foreign policy chief.
Wow. Maybe they got religion or something.
