JPost: ADL trivializes the Holocaust in Huckabee attack

Read the full article at Jerusalem Post. Below is an excerpt:

TWO WEEKS ago, Mike Huckabee – who in the past two decades has become a respected US governor, presidential primary candidate and immensely popular TV personality in the US – was moved to recount this special story inter alia in his address on the American economy and the national debt crisis at the annual National Rifle Association convention.

One would have to look long and hard to find anyone in Israel who would not find this poignant episode moving. Not every American Christian visits the Jewish state, or brings his family, or accepts the personal mission of conveying the lessons of the Shoah to his offspring.

Incredibly, unfathomably, one leading Jewish organization put aside all other problems of the day to respond sharply to Huckabee’s comments. Its statement did not laud the man, who happens to be one of the strongest Republican “pre-candidates” for the 2012 presidential elections.

In fact, the ADL shrilly lambasted Huckabee, saying the Holocaust “should never be used as political talking points,” and sternly advising him to “weigh his words more carefully.”

I am a big fan of the ADL and the vital work it does, but artificially stretching its perspective to criticize a man who is undeniably one of Israel’s staunchest and most effective supporters is not only wrong and foolish. It actually trivializes the Holocaust.
