Abraham Foxman has charged that I am “in many ways no better than Farrakhan or Buchanan” (“Russell Simmons’ Blind Spot For Bigotry,” Opinion, March 16). I am proud of my work as a patriot and a passionate Zionist; to be compared to Jew-haters by a man who styles himself a leader of the Jews is abominable.
We have seen the likes of Abe Foxman before in Jewish history: the reviled traitor among us — Dathan in The Ten Commandments. The idea that this man still leads the Anti-Defamation League is a stunning indictment of the failure of Jewish lay leadership. Worse still, a Jewish press is publishing this collaborator.
Foxman demonizes proud Jews who love Israel and fight for freedom, while he kowtows to the Islamic jihad.
Our Jewish leadership has failed us miserably. Foxman must go.
