With its National Headquarters in New York City, ADL has a network of Regional and Satellite Offices throughout America, and in Jerusalem, Vienna and Moscow."
August 2012: 'Yet, "Jewish students at all campuses were clear that the most pervasive negative issue impacting their daily experiences on campus were intergroup challenges related to political disagreements about the state of Israel and Palestine," said the report by Richard Barton of the Anti-Defamation League and Alice Huffman of the California NAACP.'http://www.sfgate.com/education/article/UC-report-on-anti-Semitism-draws-ire-3774302.php
October 2011: 'Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, urged the protest organizers to condemn any expressions of anti-Semitism, but said, “There are manifestations in the movement of anti-Semitism, but they are not expressing or representing a larger view.” He also pointed out that, according to his organization’s periodic polls, roughly one in six Americans believed Jews had too much power in Wall Street and the American government.'http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/22/nyregion/occupy-wall-street-criticized-for-flashes-of-anti-semitism.html

June 2011: 'Mr. Hess also writes an online comic book, “Foreskin Man,” with villains like “Monster Mohel.” On Friday, the Anti-Defamation League issued a statement saying the comic employed “grotesque anti-Semitic imagery.”'http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/05/us/05circumcision.html
June 2011: '“Do not overlook other types of terrorist groups,” the report warned, noting that five purely domestic groups had considered using weapons of mass destruction in that period.

June 2010: 'According to the Anti-Defamation League, although 44 states have bullying statutes, fewer than half offer guidance about whether schools may intervene in bullying involving “electronic communication,” which almost always occurs outside of school and most severely on weekends, when children have more free time to socialize online.'http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/28/style/28bully.html
April 2010: 'Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League in the United States, attributed the remarks to ignorance, not malice. “You would think that a senior priest in the church would have a better understanding of anti-Semitism than to make this hideous comparison,” he said.'http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/03/world/europe/03church.html
March 2010: "The Massachusetts House and Senate have passed versions of an anti-bullying law, but disagreement remains on whether all schools will be required to conduct staff training about bullying — a provision in about half the states with such laws and one that is vital, said Robert O.

December 2008: "The Anti-Defamation League said in a statement that Mr. Madoff’s arrest had prompted an outpouring of anti-Semitic comments on Web sites around the world, most repeating familiar tropes about Jews and money.

Date Fairness.com Resource Read it at: Aug 08, 2012 UC report on anti-Semitism draws ire
QUOTE: To students who regard Israel as an essential Jewish homeland, this event and others like it that are staged each year on University of California campuses seem hostile, like poorly concealed anti-Semitism - especially when the Israeli flag with its Star of David is paired with a Nazi swastika, says a new report by a UC fact-finding team seeking to understand Jewish students' experiences

Washington Post Jun 04, 2011 Efforts to Ban Circumcision Gain Traction in California
QUOTE: When a group of activists proposed banning circumcision in San Francisco last fall, many people simply brushed them aside. Even in that liberal seaside city, it seemed implausible that thousands of people would support an effort to outlaw an ancient ritual that Jews and Muslims believe fulfills a commandment issued by God... Activists say the measures would protect children from an unnecessary medical procedure, calling it “male genital mutilation.”
New York Times Jun 27, 2010 Online Bullies Pull Schools Into the Fray

Washington Post Dec 24, 2008 In Madoff Scandal, Jews Feel an Acute Betrayal
QUOTE: Here is a Jew accused of cheating Jewish organizations trying to help other Jews, they say, and of betraying the trust of Jews and violating the basic tenets of Jewish law. A Jew, they say, who seemed to exemplify the worst anti-Semitic stereotypes of the thieving Jewish banker....In addition to theft, the Torah discusses another kind of stealing, geneivat da’at, the Hebrew term for deception or stealing someone’s mind. “In the rabbinic mind-set, he’s guilty of two sins: one is theft, and the other is deception,” said Burton L. Visotzky, a professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Washington Post Sep 24, 2007 Giuliani's Rhetoric on Terror Contrasts With His Record
QUOTE: for most of Giuliani's career as a Department of Justice official, prosecutor and New York's chief executive, terrorism was a narrow aspect of his broader crime-fighting agenda, which was dominated by drug dealers, white-collar criminals and the Mafia. Giuliani expressed confidence that Islamic extremism could be contained through vigorous investigation by law enforcement agencies and prosecution in the court system -- the same approach he now condemns.
Washington Post Sep 09, 2007 Israel Arrests Suspects in Neo-Nazi Attacks

Christian Science Monitor Oct 08, 2006 In God’s Name: Secular Laws Cede to Religious Exemptions
QUOTE: In recent years, many politicians and commentators have cited what they consider a nationwide “war on religion” that exposes religious organizations to hostility and discrimination.

And the number is multiplying rapidly.
