‘The Height of Chutzpah’

To the growing list of organizations that are fed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and its legion of hateful bullies, add the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL apparently got wise to PETA’s latest anti-semitic stunt, a traveling installation called “Holocaust on Your Plate,” which tries (feebly) to draw parallels between 1940s Nazi death-camp prisoners and livestock in modern farms.

The exclamation point is a new PETA website, MassKilling.com, that Israel National News says “features further explicit comparisons of Jews murdered by Nazis to chickens eaten for food.”

On Monday, the ADL issued a public denunciation of PETA, declaring that its “Holocaust” project is “outrageous, offensive, and taking chutzpah to new heights.” ADL National Director Abraham Foxman writes: “The uniqueness of human life is the moral underpinning for those who resisted the hatred of Nazis and others ready to commit genocide even today.” ADL’s website also features a new report on anti-semitism in the animal rights movement.

Mr. Foxman has hit the nail on the head. As a matter of policy, PETA and other animal rights groups do not respect “the uniqueness of human life.” PETA president Ingrid Newkirk spelled it out in her now-famous barb: “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They’re all mammals.” It’s this twisted worldview that leads PETA to oppose medical research with animals, even when it leads to treatments and cures for human diseases.
