The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Wednesday strongly criticized a call by an Israeli Arab anti-Zionist group to boycott Jewish agencies looking to contribute to Israeli Arab communities in Israel. "We believe reaching full equality for the Arab citizens of Israel is vital on a practical and moral level. When Israeli Arab groups such as Ittijah reject these concepts it reinforces barriers to achieving the goal of equality," the ADL said in a statement. Ittijah general director Ameer Makhoul said on Tuesday the funds "come from American Jews who are committed to Israel, who see it as a Jewish state for Jews. This isn't philanthropy, it's political." Haviv Rettig contributed to this report.
