Ramesh – I hadn’t seen that. Foxman’s being absurd. Frankly, I’ve often found the way the ADL deals with these things to be a bit embarrassing. Does Foxman really think a Senior Editor at the New Republic(!) is somehow holding back a more forthright apology for sinister reasons? If the ADL did anything to foment a climate at ESPN or Disney which resulted in this decision, he should apologize to Easterbrook. Indeed, creating a climate where offending Jews automatically results in your termination will do far more to hurt Jews in this country than anything which might have resulted from Easterbrook’s original comments.
