"We have raised this issue with President Mubarak on many occasions, and he responds with the argument that Egypt is a democratic society and that the government cannot dictate the views of editors and writers and producers," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "There is a basic fallacy in that logic, because leaders in a free society have a responsibility to speak out against anti-Semitism. President Mubarak must condemn anti-Semitism in his society. His silence implies acceptance."QUESTION: What do you ask from Egypt?
...there is a need for all of us to be respectful of each other, to be respectful of each others' religions. This is the time when we see hatred coming forth, those of us in positions of leadership should speak against that hatred, whether it's hatred manifested by anti-Semitism, or hatred manifested by anti-Muslim comments or activities.
