New York, NY, October 30, 2006 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) announced the election of Glen Lewy as its next National Chairman. A New York lawyer, investment banker and venture capitalist, Mr. Lewy has been actively involved with ADL since the 1970s.

"It is a tremendous honor and privilege to have been chosen by my peers to lead this agency in its vital mission of combating anti-Semitism, bigotry and prejudice," said Mr. Lewy. "As the League enters its 94th year we stand ready to combat the scourge of anti-Semitism, to support the State of Israel, to defend American ideals and values, and to work for the betterment of civil society for all."

In his nearly two decades of leadership with ADL, Mr. Lewy has served both on the League's New York Regional Board and as a member of the National Commission and National Executive Committee, the League's top policymaking body. As a member of ADL leadership delegations, Mr. Lewy has traveled extensively across Europe, the Middle East and China. He has conferred with world leaders from many nations, including Germany, France, China, Italy and Israel, and recently was among a delegation of top ADL leaders to hold a private audience with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican.

"We are extremely fortunate to have such an outstanding, remarkable, articulate and proven leader to guide us through the months and years ahead," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "Glen Lewy brings to his new role a deep understanding of the challenges posed by the new anti-Semitism, the threat of global terrorism and the need to protect and defend the vibrant, democratic state of Israel and our democratic values at home."

An adviser to some of the world's largest and most prestigious corporations for more than 25 years, Mr. Lewy joined Hudson Ventures, a technology-focused venture capital firm, in 2000 as a Senior Managing Director. He was a senior partner and a member of the management committee of Wolfensohn & Co., a New York investment banking firm, and after it was acquired by Bankers Trust Company in 1996, he became a member of the management committee of Bankers Trust. Prior to joining Wolfensohn & Co., Mr. Lewy was a partner at the law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton. He holds a Bachelor's Degree from Amherst College and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.

Mr. Lewy is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and sits on the Board of Trustees of the New York Historical Society and the Seed Foundation. He and his wife, Cheryl, reside in Westchester County, New York. Subscribe to *Hasbarfa Alert*

Bankers and the CFR don't have a history of promoting harmony and tolerance. Do you still hold to your belief that the ADL is what it claims to be?

note his priority is the State of Israel and then to defend American ideals and values.

The ADL actually stands for American Destruction League.

Seriously Mike, do you still buy the BS about the ADL's mission to promote harmony and kumbaya?

The "betterment of civil society" comes in last on this tool's list.

My bad. I posted this without pinging you, Mike. Second try:

No comment at all from you on this? Can I infer that you've changed your mind about the ADL or does silence indicate tacit support?

I just got done being hired for a holiday job and have lots of things on my plate this week. There is no time limit on answering posts, and I saw your ping and have been thinking of the best way to articulate a response.

I am not at all a very good one liner of a poster. My apologies, but I will answer soon if this is that important to you, but I need my space to do it in my own way, in my own time.

I only have a couple of short breaks back at the office today where I can check my pings today, so please don't use that fire hardened pointy prompting stick on my pastie white hind quarters right now. Thank you.

Our troops take an oath promising to protect uswe need to promise to protect them too.

Take your time.

Lewy is a known thief and liar. It comes with the territory of his profession. It's a curious thing why B'nai B'rith would allow a predator to be chairman of its little human harmony project.

BTW, why do you suppose that the ADL would appoint a Jewish banker and a CFR member to attempt to counter the notion that International banking and the NWO are just inventions of 'anti-semites' and other such targets of the ADL?

Hi bluegrass. ;-)

Nope, sure haven't. I generally read and lurk that topic, not reply on it, and that won't change anytime soon.

Mike-

Here's your buddy Foxman being loved on by John "Death Squad" Negroponte. I truly hope that you get around to waking up to who and what the ADL actually is...unless ideology is more important.


MR. NEGROPONTE: (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you very much, Mr. Glen Lewy. Beats the introduction I got at the National Press Club the other day. (Laughter.)

Abe Foxman, my good friend and partner. It says here, partner in opposing one-sided anti-Israel resolutions when I was ambassador at the U.N., but it goes much beyond that. We were very good friends. We consulted on a whole range of issues concerning the posture of the United States at the United Nations. And I just found Abe -- he was always there when I needed him, and he was a source of invaluable counsel as we carried out those very challenging assignments up there in New York. And I'm sure that you continue to watch those issues with a great, great deal of interest, as do I.

REMARKS BY DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE JOHN NEGROPONTE AT THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE 28TH ANNUAL NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE LOCATION: RENAISSANCE MAYFLOWER HOTEL, WASHINGTON, D.C. TIME: 1:25 P.M. EDT DATE: MONDAY, APRIL 24, 2006

You need to stop badgering. I just don't need two mothers.

P.S. Abe Foxman ain't "my buddy."

Abe Foxman ain't "my buddy."

Your heartfelt defenses of the ADL would lead me to believe otherwise.

You need to stop badgering.

I'll do so when you stop ferreting.
