This what the Left is known for, taking wonderful institutions and ideas and subverting them for their own nefarious agendas.
WIESENTHAL CENTER URGES REMOVAL OF ANNE FRANK’S NAME FROM NGO DUE TO ANTISEMITISM
NEW YORK – The prominent US human rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center on Monday called on the Germany-based Anne Frank Center to remove the Holocaust victim’s name from its organization after it invited an alleged anti-Jewish conspiracy theorist who loathes Israel to speak at its conference on antisemitism.
The latest antisemitism scandal at the Frankfurt-based Anne Frank Educational Center is roiling Frankfurt’s city government.
Frankfurt’s deputy mayor and city Treasurer, Uwe Becker, told The Jerusalem Post the center should disinvite the alleged antisemite Daniel Bax.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, in a statement to the Post, directed his criticism to the management of the Anne Frank Educational Center:
“How dare you! Anne Frank is not a brand to be marketed. She was a Jewish girl who was murdered by Nazi Germany for the crime of being a Jew, and because no country, including the US, would admit the Frank family and millions of other European Jews,” he stated.
“Yes people have the right to speak their minds, but debasing Anne’s memory to abet efforts to delegitimize and eliminate the Jewish state in Germany no less-is beyond the pale. Remove Anne’s name from this Center and have the guts to openly promote your animus towards the democratic State of Israel,” Rabbi Cooper said.
