The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) praised US President Barack Obama and US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta for their “swift and decisive intervention” to ensure the safety of Israeli civilian personnel under siege in Cairo.

Their response, "made a critical difference in conveying the seriousness with which the US viewed the rioters’ attack on the Embassy and the disturbing message that Egypt’s inaction would send,” said ADL National Chair Robert G. Sugarman and ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman.

“The shoulder-to-shoulder cooperation between President Obama, Secretary Panetta and Israel’s leaders not only secured the safe passage of the Israelis, it sent a vital signal that the US stands by Israel with vigor and vigilance as it faces a region in transition and turmoil.”

In letters to President Obama and Secretary Panetta, the League thanked the US for its efforts to facilitate communications with the Egyptian military leadership after the protesters stormed the embassy.
