The call which Alfred M. Cohen, international president of the B’nai B’rith, has issued to American Jewry to support the order as the best weapon against anti-Semitism, deserves the attention of every Jew in America.
The B’nai B’rith, through its Anti-Defamation League, was combatting anti – Jewish propaganda in the United States long before the Nazis began their anti-Semitic activities here. It has played a very important role in fighting the Ku Klux Klan and similar movements. It has always been on guard to protect the good name and prestige of American Jewry.
The call issued by the B’nai B’rith president should, therefore, be heeded by every American Jew. It is especially timely now, in connection with McFadden’s announcement that he intends to run as candidate for president of the United States on an anti-Semitic platform.
