Abe Foxman wades into Ovadia Yosef row

The US-based Anti-Defamation League condemned on Monday remarks made by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in which he called for God to smite the Palestinians.
ADL National Director Abe Foxman said, "We are outraged by the offensive and incendiary comments made by Rav Ovadia Yosef."
Foxman added, "These comments do not exist in a vacuum, such incendiary expressions contribute to a potentially dangerous environment of intolerance and hatred."
