President Obama praised Abraham Foxman as “irreplaceable” after the Anti-Defamation League announced the planned retirement of its longtime leader.

“For decades, Abe Foxman has been a tireless voice against anti-Semitism and prejudice in all of its forms, always calling us to reject hatred and embrace our common humanity,” Obama said in a statement released by the White House on Tuesday.

The ADL announced Monday that Foxman would retire as its national director in July 2015. Foxman has led the ADL for 27 years.

“Michelle and I wish him well as he prepares to leave the leadership of the Anti-Defamation League — an organization that he built, and led with such passion and persistence,” Obama said in his statement. “Abe is irreplaceable, but the causes that he has dedicated his life to will continue to inspire people in the United States, Israel, and around the world.”

After he steps down, Foxman will serve as a part-time consultant to ADL and sit on the organization’s national commission and national executive committee, the organization said.

Founded in 1913, the ADL fights against anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry and on behalf of civil rights.

    If you require proof that Abe Foxman is a corrupt Court Jew and self-server, here it is. Obama's praise condemns this bastard to the level of Hell reserved for Jewish leaders who betrayed the Jewish people.

  2. Uzi Kattan says:

    The ADL has been corrupted into a progressive organization which defends Jew hating DemocRATs. Foxman is a self hating Jew who attacks pro Jewish conservatives while ignoring DemocRAT anti-Semitism. Another useless member of the erev rav.

  3. Uzi Kattan says:

    Foxman will remain a part time consultant so he cam keep his $400K+ salary.
