On The Hill, Episode 11: A chat with Doron Ezickson of the Anti-Defamation League
Doron Ezickson, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League for the Washington D.C. region, goes 'On The Hill.' The ADL is currently faced with increasing instances of anti-Semitic incidents in the news. Democrats on Capitol Hill debated and passed a resolution against hate speech that was sparked by Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments on Israel. In our conversation, Ezickson talks about how politicians can be critical of the Jewish State, but need to be careful to avoid anti-Semitic remarks against Jewish people. Also, he discusses what he sees as the greatest threat to the anti-hate movement: The continued incidents of school-age children writing hate speech and swastikas on school walls. We discuss how ADL is trying to work closely with educators and parents to make sure children understand the impact of their words and actions.
