Anti-Defamation League pro-defamation 

The ADL gives award to Silvio Berlusconi for his support of Israel and Ariel Sharon. Berlusconi has recently said that "Mussolini never killed anyone." I feel sick.
Some facts: Mussolini ruled Italy from 1922 until his ouster in 1943. Widespread persecution of Italian Jews began in 1938 when Mussolini's regime issued racial laws. In 1943, German troops occupied northern and central Italy, and almost 7,000 Jews were deported, 5,910 of whom were killed.

Apparently, some Jews are upset that an anti-anti-semitism group would give an award to a quasi-holocaust denier. But they shouldn't be: Earlier, Foxman said Berlusconi's comments on Mussolini were a mistake for which the prime minister had apologized to Italian Jews. Foxman said the criticism was hypocritical and ``politically laced.'' The critics do not like Berlusconi because he supports Sharon and President Bush, he said.
``I don't have the luxury of political views,'' Foxman told AP before the speech. ``Here is a leader who is not only sensitive and supportive (of Israel) but has moved Europe to be less hypocritical ... He has understood Israel in these times of trouble,'' Foxman said.

That's not a political view? What a hypocritical asshole.
Let's end this post with a quote from Ariel "never killed anyone" Sharon:
Better to be a live Judeo-Nazi than a dead martyr.
ADL's way ahead of you, Arik.

Words we learn in women's studies class: 

'Womyndatory'. Think about it.
That addition to your vocabulary comes courtesy of my BritLit prof, who had this to say on hardcore feminism: "It's something we all have to go through. Then get over. [Laughter] Um, don't quote me on that."
Too late.
