Explain The Anti-Defamation League's Reasoning To Me

It's sad that the ADL apparently denies all genocide except one. This does not further the quest for complete human rights or for the complete truth. For me, here's the most meaningful quote:
Critics say this position is hypocritical. Foxman "should understand that the truth of any genocide is not conditional upon political relationships," said Aram Hamparian, executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America in Washington, D.C. Rather, he said, it should be dictated by "truth" and "history."
Amen to that.

It is good that this matter gets an airing. It is important to recognize that just like extreme Christian and Muslim groups there are also extreme Jewish groups. Just consider the neocon/Likud connection. In a similar vein,a friend once told me that it is safer to criticize Israel in Israel than in the US.
