The Globe reported this morning that the national ADL has fired its New England regional director, Andrew Tarsy, and rebuked the New England regional board, which had supported him. The action comes one day after Tarsy and the New England board bravely stood up against the ridiculous position staked out by the ADL’s national leader, Abraham Foxman, on the Armenian Genocide, namely, that it’s not that ADL’s, the Jewish people’s, or even the U.S. Congress’s role to say whether the Armenian genocide was a genocide. This from an organization that combats Holocaust denial!
Two things need to happen:
1. Let’s applaud Tarsy, who gave up a lucrative job in the private sector to lead the ADL locally and who had the courage to stand up for what’s right.
2. Foxman must go. He has lost his way. He is bad for the Jews, a shanda fur die goyim. The ADL had better act now before it experiences large-scale desertions–if it’s not already too late.
