Did you know that the misnamed Anti-Defamation League disseminates it’s guilt-inducing hasbara in Catholic schools in the U.S. with the full support and cooperation of the National Catholic Educators Association and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops?
The ADL website explains:
“Since its inception, (the ADL program) ‘Bearing Witness’ has trained over 700 Catholic school teachers across North America. Its growing popularity can best be judged by it becoming an ADL nationally sponsored program in 1998, the fact that ADL regional offices began replicating the program in 2002, and now a new and exciting extension that finds educators expanding their learning in Israel.”
Here’s how one mind-washed victim of the program described it:
“This program completely tears you apart and puts you back together again,” reports [social studies teacher at St. Catherine of Sienna school in Horsham, Pa., Jennifer] Kugler, as she described an intense week in Washington last July.
“On the first day, we learned the history of anti-Judaism, how it evolved into anti-Semitism, and what the Church did to promote and encourage it,” she explained.
“We then learned how the Nuremberg Laws have striking parallels to the Edicts of the Popes from 400 years earlier. Then, they tear you down further by showing you examples of anti-Judaism in the New Testament. Now, you are really in pain.”

The American Jewish Committee runs a parallel program, the “Catholic Jewish Educational Enrichment Program.”
I’ve contacted the ADL and AJC about having Michael A. Hoffman teach a reciprocal program in U.S. yeshivas on the wicked, anti-Christian nature of Judaism and how the Nuremburg Laws have striking parallels to the racial supremacist edicts of the racial supremacist rabbis. No response has been received so far.
