Obama on retiring ADL chief: Abe is irreplaceable

Retiring Anti-Defamation League (ADL) leader Abe Foxman is "irreplaceable," US President Barack Obama said in a press statement released on Tuesday.


"For decades, Abe Foxman has been a tireless voice against anti-Semitism and prejudice in all of its forms, always calling us to reject hatred and embrace our common humanity," President Obama said.


"Michelle and I wish him well as he prepares to leave the leadership of the Anti-Defamation League – an organization that he built, and led with such passion and persistence," the president continued.


"The causes that he has dedicated his life to will continue to inspire people in the United States, Israel, and around the world," he concluded. (Ynetnews)
