Abe Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, rejected criticism against the Iran deal. He has also expressed his doubts about the effectiveness of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s public lobbying against the agreement.
“The Jews have a tendency to go overboard when reacting negatively and to minimize when reacting positively,” he said. “When President Obama reacted negatively to the prime minister’s statements that he had backtracked on a two-state solution, the Jews were furious. But when Obama profusely expressed his admiration for Israel and concern for its security during an interview with Thomas Friedman of The New York Times, the Jews kept quiet.”
