Foxman Continues to Go After Gen. Petraeus

In case you thought Friday’s bizarre statement rebuking Gen. David Petraeus was a fluke, Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League continued his attack on the commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East and South Asia in a Sunday blog post.

Recall that all Petraeus said was that the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict set the “strategic context” for the U.S. and its allies in the Mideast and allowed extremists to exploit the decades-old tension in ways deleterious to U.S. and allied interests. But to Foxman, that’s “proven to have no validity.”

After recapping a selective presentation of Petraeus’s remarks, Foxman writes at the Jerusalem Post:

What inevitably happens if such unrealistic weight in the region is given to the Israeli-Arab conflict is that Israel comes to be seen as the problem. If only Israel would stop settlements, if only Israel would talk with Hamas, if only Israel would make concessions on refugees, if only it would share Jerusalem, everything in the region would be fine. Iraq would be fine. Afghanistan would be fine. Pakistan would be fine. Iran would be fine. Lebanon would be fine.

You can search long and hard, but Petraeus never for a second implied he believed such a thing. If Foxman’s strawmanning is hardly news to observers of his career, it’s exceptional that he would continue to attack the most respected U.S. military figure in the country — who has indicated he has no desire to reply to Foxman, by the way. What’s more, I’m at the AIPAC conference today, and it’s notable how none of Foxman’s erstwhile allies have demonstrated any willingness to fall down the rabbit hole of attacking Petraeus.
