League (ADL) says Alice Walker, author of the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize
winning "The Color Purple," expresses several "fervently anti-Jewish
ideas" in her latest novel, "The Cushion in the Road."
The ADL, an American Jewish organization whose mission is to
"stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair
treatment for all citizens alike," says the novel dedicates over 80
pages to essays on the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, which
they say is "peppered with explicit comparisons between Israel
and Nazi Germany."
