A recent comment on Joey Kurtzman's piece, "Fire Foxman: Denying the Armenian Genocide should be the last atrocity perpetrated by the ADL chief," makes an interesting point about the real crimes of the Anti-Defamation League's pursuit of trivial cases of perceived anti-Semitism:

It's an interesting article and although I agree with the fundamental point that on Foxman's watch the ADL has become a net negative, I find it curious that the author (and most of the commenters I read, I did not read all) have left out reference to what I believe to be Foxman's greatest crime. In bending over backwards to hyperbolize and vigorously prosecute perceived threats coming from politically correct enemies, (read: Christians) Foxman has consistently ignored or worse, appeased actual, real and arguably much more dangerous examples of Muslim anti-semitism here in the U.S. This is not to say Christian anti-semitism doesn't exist, (I agree with those who spoke out against Mel Gibson's movie) but it is cowardly and disingenious and damaging to legitimate Jewish-Christian partnerships for Foxman and the ADL to steadfastly ignore the threat institutionalized anti-semitism in Wahhabi-funded American Muslim institutions pose to the Jewish American community in favor of beating up on the same old bogeyman just because he knows in so doing he will enjoy the support of liberal media and the greater American Left.

Leave your thoughts on this comment below, and I'll cull the best responses in a subsequent post.
