ADC Action Alert
Contact President-Elect Obama, Congressman Emanuel Regarding Anti-Arab Remarks by Emanuel's Father

 Washington, DC | November 11, 2008

 The American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee urges (ADC) you to take immediate action by using the contact info below to express your disappointment to President-Elect Obama and Congressman Rahm Emanuel for the anti-Arab remarks Emanuel's father made this past week.

ADC wrote a letter (see full text below) to Congressman Emanuel and President-Elect Barack Obama asking the congressman to publicly repudiate the derogatory comments his father made. Benjamin Emmanuel was quoted by numerous Israeli and American publications as saying  "Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he be? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House

There should be no place for such demeaning rhetoric and these comments are contrary to the very type change the President-Elect promised he would bring to America

TEXT OF ADC LETTER TO HON. EMANUEL

Dear Congressman Emanuel

I am writing to you on behalf of the largest American‐Arab Civil Rights group in the United States, with members in every State of the Union, founded in 1980. We work in coalition with all civil rights organizations

This has been an historic election, one which energized our Country and gave many people the reason to vote for change. I know the Arab‐American community was very involved in this presidential election, and voter turnout in the community was exceptionally high. We wish to congratulate you on being named, by President‐Elect Obama, White House Chief of Staff. We were, however, deeply disappointed by comments made by your father, Mr. Benjamin Emanuel, on the momentous occasion of your announcement as Chief of Staff. According to numerous news stories in the U.S. and in Israel, he made the following comments in an interview with Ma’ariv, “Obviously he’ll influence the President to be pro‐Israel. Why wouldn’t he? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to be mopping floors at the White House.”

The American‐Arab Anti‐Discrimination Committee (ADC) views this characterization of an Arab as an unacceptable smear. One can readily imagine the justifiable outcry if someone made a similar remark about African‐Americans, Jews, or Hispanics, concerning cleaning the floors of the White House. Do the normal standards of decency and civility not apply when talking about Arabs? ADC asks you to disavow and repudiate these remarks publicly. We sincerely hope you will distance yourself from any demeaning characterization of any ethnic, religious, or racial group. President‐Elect Obama pledged a respect for the diversity of this Nation, and Arab Americans certainly add, in a positive way, to our Country’s diversity

Sincerely

Hon. Mary Rose Oakar, ADC President
Kareem Shora, JD. LLM., National Executive Director
