I was surprised at the response to Chuck Goudie’s question about whether the ADL would be willing to meet with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Mayor elect Rahm Emanuel because the lead to the story talked about rising hostilities. For the first time I can recall, a leading Jewish organization that has been part of the controversy is willing to meet with Minister Farrakhan.
Now, before we get too excited, that willingness was expressed before, but too many “pre requirements.” They wanted the Minister to denounce his statements before they even met and of course our dear brother and courageous leader was not about to apologize for statements he made unless they proved that his statements were false. He’s been unchallenged in that regard. Here’s the report from ABC Chicago’s Chuck Goudie.
