ADL Expresses Hope after Mubarak's Resignation; Calls for the Peaceful Transition of Power in Egypt

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reacted to the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak today (February 11, 2011), calling the announcement "an extraordinary historic development for Egypt and the Middle East," according to the Spero Forum website.

ADL -- a US-based Jewish-operated human rights organization -- in a statement expressed hope that the transition of power would unfold peacefully.

The ADL statement says: "The demonstrations by the people of Egypt against the regime's authoritarianism and repression, and their demands for greater freedom, political accountability and transparency, have been inspiring to all who cherish democracy and liberty."

Currently, the Egyptian military is governing Egypt, as a result of Mubarak's departure from power.
