ADL leader Abe FoxmanADL press release calls mosque location insensitive to 9/11 victims families. Other Jewish voices urge tolerance and denounce ADL's Foxman.

The ADL's announcement expressing doubts over the plan to establish a mosque on the site of Ground Zero created a stir on Saturday. The Anti-Defamation League added their voice on Friday to those opposing the building of a mosque close to Ground Zero and inflamed the public debate that is splitting popular opinion in New York.

The debate has been ongoing ever since the plan became known weeks ago. The plan is to establish a large Islamic religious center in an area that abuts the site where thousands of residents of the city were killed as a result of the most lethal terror attack in the history of the United States, perpetrated by Muslim terrorists.

The League is thought to be largest and most influential Jewish organization in North America and has garnered world-wide reputation as a leader in the battle against discrimination on the basis of religion or ethnicity and an advocate of tolerance and equal rights for all religions and nationalities.
