New York, N.Y., September 12, 2002 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today commended President George W. Bush for "clearly and forcefully" calling on the international community at the United Nations General Assembly to take a stand against the threat to democracy and freedom posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
In a letter to President Bush, Glen A. Tobias, ADL National Chairman and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said:
We want to commend you for your very strong speech this morning before the United Nations General Assembly.
You clearly and forcefully laid out the danger Iraq poses to the stability and safety of the region and the imperative of action by the international community to prevent President Saddam Hussein's use of non-conventional weaponry.
As you eloquently stated, this is a defining moment for the international community to stand up against a threat to democracy and freedom. We hope they will join the United States in meeting this challenge.
