Bay Area article lets JVP rebut ADL's accusations

"...Jewish Voice for Peace rebutted Foxman's claims, saying it advocates for human rights for both Israelis and Palestinians. JVP further said that some of its members in fact consider themselves Zionist. Cecilie Surasky, deputy director of JVP, said that the ADL — and particularly its local chapters — do a lot of good work around discrimination and bullying but "are undermined by Foxman and company's cynical attitudes when it comes to protecting Israel's right to infinitely expand into Palestinian territory."
