What are Armenian-Americans and others asking of the ADL?

Armenian-Americans and others are asking that the Anti-Defamation League forthrightly and unambiguously acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and publicly and unequivocally support Congressional affirmation of the genocide.

These requests are consistent with the New England ADL’s position as reported in the Boston Globe on August 19, 2007:

“The executive committee of the regional [ADL] board broke with the national office, calling on the national ADL to recognize the genocide and, according to a source, resolving to support the legislation in Congress.”

Armenian-Americans expect an apology from the ADL through its national director, Abraham Foxman, for having denied the Armenian Genocide for so many years and for actively working against recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the United States.
