How Can The ADL Oppose The Trump Border Wall?
H/T Pic The New Observer
Trump’s Wall: Israelis Eye Contract August 3, 2016 is a good example. This is based on a Bloomberg story The Israeli Company That Fenced in Gaza Eyes Trump’s Mexico Wall by Jonathan Ferziger August 1, 2016. This says
The Israeli company, which wrapped Gaza in a fence to prevent militant attacks, has helped construct barriers along the Egyptian and Jordanian frontiers. It’s now competing for the contract to build a wall on Kenya’s border with Somalia, Koursh, Magal’s chief executive officer, said. If Donald Trump makes it to the White House, Mexico could be next.
(Don’t know about Kenya’s wall? Bloomberg says
Kenya’s planned 682-kilometer (425-mile) border project would be bigger than anything Magal has ever been involved with, at an estimated cost of 1.54 trillion shillings ($15.2 billion) if built along the entire stretch.)
The New Observer observes
All the Israel-supporting Jewish lobbies in America are unanimously opposed to building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
This is best summed up by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which has an entire section on its website advocating an open borders policy for America and listing “myths” about the Third World invasion of that country.
The relevant section of the ADL’s website says
A wall or a fence along the entire border with Mexico would be impractical and very likely ineffective.
The New Observer very reasonably asks:
How does the ADL—and the other Jewish lobbies—justify their support for wall-building Israel while at the same time condemning Americans who want to build an Israel-style wall?
and supplies a plausible answer.
We at VDARE.com also wonder WHY HAS THE CONGRESSIONAL GOP FAILED TO MAKE PRESIDENT OBAMA FULFILL HIS OBLIGATION TO FENCE THE BORDER?
See A Tale Of Two Fences: American And Israeli Border Policies which I think also provides a plausible answer.
