ADL Shocked At Newseum Decision To Honor Members Of Terrorist Organization Hamas

NEW YORK, May 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today expressed shock and outrage at the decision by the Newseum to proceed with honoring two members of the Hamas terrorist propaganda television operation Al-Aqsa TV as part of its ongoing memorial to journalists who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2012.

Despite vocal public criticism of the decision last week, Newseum officials have said they will go ahead with including the terrorist operatives in its annual ceremony honoring fallen journalists.

ADL said the inclusion of Hussam Salama and Mahmoud Al-Kumi in the Newseum Journalists Memorial was "a dark day for an American institution devoted to free speech and the First Amendment."  Salama and Al-Kumi were members of Hamas, which is designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. Department of State.

"It is a dark day when members of a terrorist organization advancing their agenda through murderous violence are honored as part of a tribute to journalists killed in the line of duty," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "This decision flies in the face of the founding mission of Newseum to 'educate the public about the value of a free press in a free society.'  Salama and Al-Kumi were terrorist operatives working for a network that routinely promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence.  These men were working for a propaganda outlet, not a legitimate news organization."

ADL urged the Newseum to reconsider the decision and remove the names of Al-Kumi and Salama from the roster of the Journalists Memorial before they are officially added to the permanent memorial scheduled to be unveiled on Monday.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
