ADL Letter to Playboy

Anti-Defamation League


Letters to the Editor
Playboy
 
     March 21, 2011

To the Editor:

No matter how "fed up" journalist Helen Thomas is with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (Playboy Interview, April), her anger
doesn't give her license to spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories such as the canard that Jews control the government.

One can criticize Israel without resorting to stereotypes. Likewise, her demand that all Jews leave Israel and "go home" is an outrageous pronouncement and a prescription for national suicide. Thomas may be so delusional as to believe she is not anti-Semitic, but her hurtful words show otherwise.


  Sincerely,

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
