Jewcy Protests Anti-Defamation League Director Abe Foxman at the 92nd Street Y

WHERE: Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street, New York WHEN: Thursday, Sep 6, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. (The event starts at 8:15 p.m.) As reported by Jewcy Senior Editor Joey Kurtzman, Abe Foxman has refused to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Weeks after Jewcy called for his ouster, Foxman issued a mealymouthed press release but did nothing else. He has not apologized to Armenians and the Jews he claims to represent. The ADL has not changed its position that it would be a “counterproductive diversion” to support the Congressional resolution affirming the Armenian Genocide. Jewcy condemns Abe Foxman and the ADL. Our presence outside the 92nd Street Y will be to insist that he and his organization have robbed themselves of moral legitimacy. Foxman must be fired. The ADL must unequivocally recognize Turkey’s organized mass murder of ethnic Armenians and back the Congressional resolution that does so. We invite anyone who shares our view to join us. We only ask that you respect the seriousness with which Jewcy approaches this issue. Our protest aims to be civilized and peaceful. No bullhorns or microphones will be permitted. Placards and banners are encouraged, but please stick to the topic at hand. For more information, please contact Jewcy Associate Editor Michael Weiss at 718-834-8873 or michael@jewcy.com
