    the only "duties" the adl now has are A) "defending" israel's reputation, B) alienating muslims, and C) refusing to recognize that the status of jews in america is pretty damn good nowadays. that's it. they are an irrelevant relic of the past, and their modern form under foxman tarnishes all the good that they once did. sad but true. i notice you left out their most current blunder: they opposed sending a group of imams to death camps in germany and austria to learn about the holocaust. why? because the "tour guide" of the group was hannah rosenthal, a government official (whose grandparents died at auschwitz...), and the ADL said that she should be focusing on improving israel's image and doing government-to-government "fighting anti-semitism" work instead. i am not making this up.
