#OccupyLA Refuses to Condemn Antisemitism

The Occupy movement has refused to heed the Anti-Defamation League’s call for “organizers, participants and supporters” to condemn the antisemitism in their midst.
Yesterday, the Anti-Defamation League applauded the decision by the Los Angeles Unified School District to fire an antisemitic substitute teacher who had made her views known at #OccupyLA protests.
However, organizers have refused to condemn that individual’s statements, or to dissociate their protest from her views–even after she doubled down on her initial statements, saying: “Jews have been run out of 109 countries throughout history. And we need to run them out of this one.”
