The list of examples of the ISB bullying and seeking to intimidate people who have concerns about it, while at the same time professing to be interested in interfaith relations, is growing:
- The ISB proclaims its "moderation" yet is suing a genuine Islamic moderate, Sheikh Dr. Ahmed Mansour, for "non-authoritative" views of Islam;
- The ISB promotes itself as devoted to civil rights, while it sues, subpoenas and otherwise seeks to intimidate journalists who dare to report about its leaders and its funding;
- The ISB keeps as its key Trustee, Walid Fitaihi, someone who solemnly pronounced himself committed to respect for other faiths while engaging in virulent anti-Semitic writings.
The ADL is a national and local leader in building and nurturing good relations among people of different faiths. It had the courage to publicly express concern about the ISB and its leadership in 2004. It was only a matter of time before the ISB would deploy some of the millions of dollars it has received from Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the Middle East for the purpose of seeking to intimidate and burden the Anti-Defamation League.
The ISB. It talks â€œinterfaith relationsâ€ while practicing intimidation.
