What strange bedfellows adversity tends to make. First, the organized Jewish community has never seriously taken Jerry Falwell to task because Falwell is so very pro-Israel. And now, David Lehrer of the Anti-Defamation League applauds Bob Dornan, a staunch supporter of Israel, even as he made an unpardonable slur against the Jewish people.
I am angry and I am offended. And I resent the fact that someone with the high visibility of Lehrer speaks out as a representative of the Jewish community. I am tired of this alliance with ethnic and religious bigots as long as they support the state of Israel.
Show a little courage, Mr. Lehrer. You are a source of great embarrassment to me.
