ADL Letter to President George W. Bush

 
June 29, 2001

To :The President
The White House
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the Anti-Defamation League we commend the significant commitment of your Administration to make the United Nations World Conference Against Racism a celebration of human dignity and a rejection of anti-Jewish, anti-Israel rhetoric.

We are disappointed that some nations would seek to utilize a forum which should embrace tolerance to advance an agenda of hatred and misunderstanding.

With continued efforts by the Administration with the support of non-governmental organizations, we hope that this conference can still embody a sense of unity in the fight against Racism. At the upcoming Third Preparatory Conference in Geneva, we urge the US to maintain its vigorous engagement in working against the inclusion of divisive language driven by hatred and misunderstanding.

Sincerely,

Glen A. Tobias
National Chairman

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
