ADL condemns Glenn Beck's Soros-Holocaust remarks

NEW YORK (AP) - November 13, 2010

The conservative pundit described Soros this week as a "Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps."

Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary and donates to liberal causes.

ADL National Director Abraham Foxman posted a statement Thursday on its website saying Beck's remarks about Soros' childhood were "inappropriate, offensive and over the top."

Foxman later told Salon.com that he still believes Beck is a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.

A Beck spokesman declined to comment but cited an Oct. 22 letter from Foxman praising Beck as a "friend of Israel." The letter was posted Friday on Beck's website.
