Abraham Foxman Stepping Down as ADL Director – ABC News

The longtime national director of the Anti-Defamation League is stepping down after almost a half century working for the Jewish nonprofit. The New York-based organization announced Monday that 73-year-old Abraham Foxman will leave in July 2015. He says the ADL was for him the “perfect vehicle” for fighting anti-Semitism and other forms of oppression. Foxman led it for the past 27 years. He was born in the Soviet Union, survived the Holocaust as a hidden child and moved to the United States with his parents. The ADL has 30 regional offices in the United States and one in Israel. A successor has yet to be chosen. Foxman is to become director emeritus.

American-Jewish group says anti-Semitism may be playing role in extended prison term for spy

JERUSALEM The head of a New York-based group that combats anti-Semitism says the way the U.S. is treating a convicted Jewish-American spy verges on anti-Semitism. Jonathan Pollard was a civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy when he gave thousands of classified documents to Israel. Pollard was arrested in 1985 and sentenced to life in prison. Israeli governments and high-ranking former U.S. officials have called for his release. Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, says there is no reason why Pollard remains incarcerated when spies convicted of far more serious crimes have walked free. Foxman told Israel’s Army Radio on Tuesday the only explanation is someone is trying to teach the American-Jewish community a lesson in loyalty and “that to me is on the verge of anti-Semitism.”

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
