The Polish Nanny & Abe Foxman of the ADL

While visiting a few forums today and browing the web, I discovered an interesting piece of history.

Abe Foxman, head of the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), B'nai Brith 'big-wig' and general proponet of 'Jewish Power' in the US and globally, was born in Poland...Here, from the official ADL website:

Abraham H. Foxman is the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and is known throughout the world as a leader in the fight against anti-Semitism, hatred, prejudice, bigotry and discrimination.

Born in Poland in 1940, Mr. Foxman was saved from the Holocaust as an infant by his Polish Catholic nanny who baptized and raised him as a Catholic during the war years. His parents survived the war, but 14 members of his family were lost.

His nanny's name was Bronislawa Kurpi, but there is no photo of her available.

Now, as far as 'focusing on heroic efforts of Christians rescuing Jews', I have never heard of these activities on Mr. Foxman's part...But the Polish background is interesting, and at least giving some props to the Poles.

Some on the PF slander the Polish people in this regard...I just try to bring some balance to the debate, presenting other sides...In the hell of war, you will find brother betraying brother, neighbor betraying neighbor, etc...This is the case since the beginning of time...I think most Poles are big hearted and noble people...But the 'blame game' can be played by anyone, since there is enough blame to go around.

I read in the Sunday Telegraph (years ago, don't ask me to find the date etc) that the CIA in under the control of ADL. As for the photo above, is that Harry in 20 years time (or a lot less!!)??

CIA uses ADL for various purposes...ADL and CIA, however, have different agendas...ADL use FBI...Just like Communism, 'alphabet agencies' have working relationships, not always same goals...All make money however.
