Anti-Defamation League: Ellison's past remarks about Israel 'disqualifying'
by Ben Kamisar
The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday voiced its opposition to Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison's bid to run the Democratic Party, citing "deeply disturbing and disqualifying" past statements about Israel.
Pointing to a resurfaced 2010 speech, the CEO of the Jewish civil rights group, Jonathan Greenblatt, questioned whether "Ellison faithfully could represent the Democratic Party's traditional support for a strong and secure Israel."
In that speech, Ellison asked why "United States' foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of 7 million people."
