Anti-Discrimination?

Reader comment on item: [Hussein Ibish:] U.S. Arabs' Firebrand

Submitted by Robert Arbetman (United States), Sep 25, 2003 at 00:32

The AA-ADC spends so much time and effort bashing Israel that the implied charter purpose of their organization is never realized. Indeed, their leaders can get a private or semi-private audience with the Secretary of State easier than they can get a similar audience with the Attorney General or the Sec. for Homeland Defense.
