Listen guys: There was an election, and you Jewish Democrats lost!

Jonathan Greenblatt, President of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) served as Special Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in the Domestic Policy Council for the Obama Administration, in one of the most anti-Israel administrations in history. 

So, it should not come as a surprise that the organization he leads today attacked President-elect Trump’s appointee Stephen Bannon and Mr. Bannon’s company, Breitbart media, “saying Bannon’s association with “unabashed anti-Semites and racists” is disqualifying.” (This, from the same ADL who refuses to comment on one of Hillary’s largest donors, Israel-hating, George Soros and others with awful records on Israel.)

In fact, as the Zionist Organization of America noted today, there is an extensive record of “…Mr. Bannon’s and Breitbart’s friendship and fair-mindedness towards Israel and the Jewish people.  To accuse Mr. Bannon and Breitbart of anti-Semitism is Orwellian.  In fact, Breitbart bravely fights against anti-Semitism.  

Here are a few of the many examples: Breitbart courageously publishes articles reporting that the Palestinian Authority defames Israel with blatant falsehoods. 

On November 13, 2016, Breitbart reported that:

The Palestinian Authority’s official TV network has been airing a video several times a day baselessly accusing Israel of poisoning former PA President Yasser Arafat and further claiming that Israel is targeting current President Mahmoud Abbas next.  Arafat died at the age of 75 on November 11, 2004, just outside of Paris. A French forensic team examined his remains and concluded that there were no traces of poison in his body.  Nevertheless, every year around the anniversary of his death, the PA disseminates the libel that Israel murdered him.”  (Emphasis in original.)

Breitbart bravely publicizes Iran’s violations of the Iran deal – which pose an existential threat to Israel.  On November 13, 2016, Breitbart reported that “Despite a finding published by the UN’s atomic energy agency this week that Iran has — for the second time — stockpiled more heavy water than permitted under the terms of the nuclear agreement it reached with six world powers last year, the US State Department is declining to acknowledge this as a violation of the deal.

Breitbart also sympathetically reports on the scourge of anti-Semitic anti-Israel boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS).  On November 2, 2016, Breitbart reported that:  “Reports of anti-Semitic incidents on US college campuses have increased, much of it attributed to the rise of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, a new report has found.”

There are so many good pro-Israel supporters around Donald Trump its simply amazing --- Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Pence, Sheldon Adelson – and his Orthodox family members Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.  Reports tonite indicate that Giuliani is a favorite for Secretary of State, a great choice for Israel and the Jewish people.

So many of us in the New York Jewish community will have great access to the White House, and it is great.  There have never been so many people with such a long record of devotion to the right issues in the White House. 

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) postures as one of America’s largest Jewish organizations devoted to combating Anti-Semitism and bigotry, but in reality they are the Jewish wing of the Democratic Party. The ADL is devoted to immigration reform,advocacy for gun control.  The Anti-Defamation League is simply a liberal Jewish organization.

They should realize that there was an election – and they lost.  The Republicans won.  They’ll have four years to watch an Administration that will call Islamic terror by its name, stand with Israel and not kow-tow to America’s enemies. The Republicans control the House, Senate and White House.

Ronn Torossian is on the Vice Chairman’s Council of the Republican Jewish Coalition but writes that this is written in a personal capacity.
