The ADL: New Testament is antisemite!?

After slaming Vatican many times then patriarch christmas speech, Mel Gibson, the coptic orthodox church..etc- it's the times for the ADL to discuss the New Testament and "unmask" it:

Amy-Jill Levine is the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School, College of Arts and Science, and Graduate Department of Religion in Nashville, Tenn.

She demonstrated how anti-Jewish New Testament interpretation continues to infect congregations and classrooms around the world.

"The problem is less the Christian right, who consider Jews the 'chosen people' and who have respect for what they call the 'Old Testament.' Rather, the problem is the Christian left: mainline churches; the World Council of Churches; liberation theologians; and usually well intended but naïve academics."

I'm afraid that it would be the first step for extremists orgs like ADL in promoting hate between communities by criticizing sacred books of the others- maybe the muslims would be next target.

I hope that the ADL would have the courage to treat main sujects in other side: anti-christian movie industry -or preaching islamophobia in media.
