Newton Withdraws from ADL’s ‘No Place to Hate’ Program

NEWTON, Mass–The City of Newton is the latest place to withdraw from an Anti Defamation League program over its position on the Armenian genocide, reported the Boston’s National Public Radio affiliate WBUR Tuesday.
Mayor David Cohen decided to withdraw the city from the "No Place For Hate" program after the ADL refused to call for a congressional resolution condemning the killing of Armenia’s in the early part of last century.
Newton, which Mayor Cohen says has the largest Jewish population in the state, joins Belmont and Watertown in withdrawing from the ADL program.
