The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has revealed that the ADL decided to celebrate Black History Month by promoting an anti-Israel activist.

ADL featured African American author Jacqueline Woodson, whose shameful Israelophobic record includes the following:

Woodson joined and was featured in radical anti-Israel hate groups “Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP)’s and Adalah-NY’s anti-Israel BDS campaign,demanding that the PEN World Voices Festival end its partnership with Israel… 

Woodson also joined and was featured in JVP’s and Adalah’s demands for Israel to release Dareen Tatour, who was convicted and received a five-month sentence for inciting violence against Israelis and supporting terrorist organizations. In the midst of the “knife intifada” (repeated Arab stabbings of innocent Jews), Tatour called for more Arabs to rise up and to become “shahids” (martyrs – a euphemism for terrorists), and wrote on Facebook that she planned to be the next shahid.

Despite her ugly track record, the ADL has repeatedly featured Woodson, incorporating her work into its curriculum, and now promoting the anti-Israel writer.

But then again the ADL had celebrated Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Ilhan Omar, the nation’s first Somali-American lawmaker, and boxer Amaiya Zafar, who fought to wear her hijab in the ring, are just some of the inspiring stories featured in #TheGoodFightBook,” the ADL tweeted in 2017.

The only people the ADL will promote hate Jews.
