The Anti-Defamation League asked Lebanon to denounce a television program calling for Jews to be burned and killed. Al-Manar television, operated by the Hezbollah terrorist organization, aired a university symposium calling for Israel’s destruction. In a letter to the Lebanese ambassador to the United States, the ADL’s national director, Abraham Foxman, said Tuesday that Lebanon should “immediately make clear that such events and sentiments are intolerable and in no way reflective of Lebanese policy.”
