My comment:

I predict that the next step will be to push the use of this censorship software in public library computer terminals, and -- even more ominously -- to have it "preinstalled" on new PCs and browsers.

ADL Filter: A ``crossing guard'' for Net hate

NEW YORK (Wired) - The Anti-Defamation League has announced the debut of HateFilter, a software program designed to block access to Web sites and newsgroups that denigrate individuals on the basis of what the ADL calls ``immutable characteristics,'' such as race, religion, and sexual orientation.

The software was developed with The Learning Company, the makers of CyberPatrol, an Internet filtering program that is widely used in homes, schools, businesses, and libraries to block access to sites deemed inappropriate by parents and employers.

``We are engaged in a full-blown battle against high-tech hate,'' said ADL national chairman Howard Berkowitz in a statement. ``Bigots are seducing our children with online messages presented in full-color animation with music and video.... Parents should be able to protect their children from hate by keeping bigotry and prejudice out of their homes.''

The ADL was founded in 1913 to fight anti-semitism. HateFilter (http://www.adl.org/hate-patrol/info/default.htm), which is available as a free download on the ADL's Web site, is a customized version of CyberPatrol (http://www.cyberpatrol.com). Like CyberPatrol, HateFilter only blocks sites that have been added to its database manually by monitors who scrutinize sites for objectionable content.

Neither CyberPatrol nor HateFilter sifts out sites automatically by keyword. The appearance of the term ``breast,'' for instance, on a breast cancer information page, will not result in automatic blocking of the site.

HateFilter users can choose to block sites listed in the standard CyberPatrol database-the so-called CyberNOT list-and those in a special database compiled by the ADL.

Elizabeth Coleman, the ADL's national director of civil rights, says ``a team of people who are on their computers all day'' is employed by the organization to patrol the Web for sites like the white supremacist RAHOWA Headquarters. (''Q: What starts out as a fruit, then turns into a vegatable sic, then turns into meat? A: Matthew Shepard.'') The ADL's database will be updated weekly.

HateFilter adds a feature to CyberPatrol's standard set: When a site is blocked, Net surfers are offered a menu of alternative ``educational'' sites. Someone who tried to access godhatesfags.com, for instance, would be directed to sites offering information about homophobia.

Certain racist and anti-semitic sites are specifically designed to attract children and young adults, Coleman says, such as the World Church of the Creator's ``Kids' Page'' (now offline) and sites devoted to the music of white supremacist bands. She calls HateFilter ``a crossing guard for the information superhighway, to protect vulnerable kids who might be home alone and come across hate language.''

Coleman cautions that while the Internet provides unparalleled opportunities to ``collapse distance, collapse time, and put us in touch with one another 24 hours a day,'' the ability of netsurfers and webmasters to hide behind anonymity and pseudonyms makes the Net ``a very dark place-a Petri dish for hate.''

CyberPatrol has come under fire from organizations as diverse as Reverend Donald Wildmon's American Family Association, the Censorware Project, and Peacefire-a First Amendment youth group-for its blocking policies.

In a report published on its Web site in December 1977, the Censorware Project claimed CyberPatrol's CyberNOT list included such sites as the MIT Project on Mathematics and Computation (blocked for ``FullNude'' and ``SexActs''), the Deja News Usenet archive, and newsgroups like misc.headlines and talk.abortion. Some of the blocked sites were removed from the CyberNOT list after the report was published.

In June, the American Family Association found itself added to the CyberNOT list for ``intolerance,'' indicating that the blocked site contained language ``advocating prejudice or discrimination against any race, color, national origin, religion, disability or handicap, gender, or sexual orientation.'' Disputing the block, the AFA argued that such statements as ``homosexuality and AIDS are inseparably connected'' reflect a valid point of view, not intolerance. The site remains on the CyberNOT list.

David Burt, who runs a site called Filtering Facts, which advocates the use of filtering software in public libraries to screen out hardcore pornography, thinks HateFilter is ``a good idea for parents, but a terrible idea for a library.''

Burt says the dispute between CyberPatrol and the AFA illustrates that ``filtering for viewpoint''-rather than for, say, clearly sexual imagery-is ``a slippery slope.''

``Just the fact of condemning homosexuality from a biblical perspective doesn't make a site a hate site,'' he says.

Because hate and intolerance are already filtering options for the standard version of CyberPatrol, Peacefire coordinator Bennett Haselton calls ADL's customized HateFilter ``a symbolic gesture.''

Haselton points out that while the ADL's press release claims that HateFilter is ``the first filter produced by a non-commercial organization,'' another organization beat them to it: the Church of Scientology, which developed blocking software to prevent its members from reading sites and newsgroups critical of church policy.

Coleman stressed the fairness of the ADL's monitoring policies. Two pro-Zionist sites, for instance-the Jewish Defense League and Kahane.org-are blocked for their use of vicious anti-Arab language.

``We do not filter out opinions,'' she says. ``Someone who thinks homosexuality is wrong is expressing an opinion. Someone who says homosexuals do not deserve to live is expressing hate. The language has to reach a certain level.

``It's a very fine line.''

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE., St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-21-1993, pp 06B. ADL Spy Probe I applaud the Post-Dispatch for its Dec. 7 editorial chastising the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for its spying activities. Maybe the ADL got off right before indictments were handed up not only because its obvious government influence but perhaps as a byproduct of the current international deals being made around the new Middle East peace accords or the issue of pardoning convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard and his ADL-connected networks. I did wish the Post-Dispatch had gone further in its editorial. First of all, it failed to report or comment on the two very large multi-party class action suits taken out by the victims of the spying against the ADL in California. Moreover, other cities, such as Chicago, have taken up their own official inquiries into ADL activities prompted by the San Francisco revelations. Since it has been revealed that the ADL had (and may still have) an active undercover spy, "Ironsides," for many years here, whose identity the San Francisco investigators say they know (April 10 article), and who one may reasonably assume had access to police and other official files, shouldn't the call be made for a similar investigation in St. Louis? No doubt a call from Chief Clarence Harmon or the circuit attorney to San Francisco would reveal who "Ironsides" is, and then an investigation could be made to determine the legality of his activity. Newspaper reporters were prominent among those targets of the ADL espionage - especially newspapers and reporters who disagreed with ADL positions on the Mideast, hate crimes legislation or the John Demjanjuk case, as have Post-Dispatch editors. I happen to know that previous pleas to local officials to probe ADL's St. Louis activities have been ignored. Maybe if the Post-Dispatch joined the call, things would be different.

Spy Net for Jewish Group Probed

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Newsday, 02-26-1993, pp 17.

- A private intelligence network with ties to the Anti-Defamation League is under investigation for illegally collecting information on more than 12,000 people nationwide, authorities say. Spokesmen for the league, an American Jewish group dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and bigotry, denied any wrongdoing. San Francisco authorities say they have confiscated files containing personal information on a wide range of political activists, ethnic advocates, writers and other U.S. residents. Much of the information allegedly is from confidential government databanks and police agencies. While some files were funneled to South Africa, most of the information appears to have been collected on behalf of the Anti-Defamation League. Officials of the organization, as well as its paid undercover operatives, could face charges for gathering intelligence illegally, authorities said. "What we're looking at is the violation of the statute that prohibits the sale, use and dispersal of confidential information," San Francisco District Attorney Arlo Smith said. Officials of the Anti-Defamation League in San Francisco and Los Angeles have cooperated with the investigation, allowing police to search their offices without a warrant. They acknowledged that their organization worked with police in collecting information on people believed to be anti-Semitic or involved in hate crimes but insisted that they did not violate the law. "It has been a regular practice of the ADL to trade hate crime-related information with police departments," said Richard Hirschhaut, executive director of the organization's Northern California office. "It has always been our understanding and our credo in conducting our fact-finding work that we conduct our work from a high ethical plateau and in conjunction with the law." In the past, both the Los Angeles and San Francisco police departments have been criticized for collecting intelligence files on activists, political figures or elected officials. Many details of the investigation were murky because a San Francisco judge has placed most of the evidence under seal until charges are filed, perhaps next month, authorities said. But the San Francisco Police Commission has ordered the release of individual files to those who were allegedly spied on - including Arab-Americans, supporters of the African National Congress, Black Muslims, Irish-Americans, neo-Nazis, the National Lawyers Guild, left-wing activists and others. "The ADL is running this all over the country," said one source close to the investigation. "The ADL set up this great system for collecting information and South Africa tapped into it." One former San Francisco police intelligence officer, who allegedly funneled police files to the operation, is under investigation on allegations that he sold confidential information about hundreds of people to the South African government. After he was questioned in November by the FBI, which began the investigation, he fled to the Philippines. Much of the case revolves around the mysterious figure of Roy Bullock, who has spent the past 40 years as a free-lance investigator and undercover operative. According to investigators, Bullock, 58, worked on behalf of the Anti-Defamation League as well as other groups. Authorities said he worked closely with police officers from various departments and collected such confidential information as criminal records, intelligence files, driver's license photographs and home addresses. Bullock could not be reached for comment.


ADL's Illegal Spying Activities

ADL's Intelligence Network

Jane Meredith Adams, Timothy M. Phelps, Timothy M, ADL's Intelligence Network Prosecutor: NY office gathered data on unions and politicians., Newsday, 04-13-1993, pp 07.

By Jane Meredith Adams and Timothy M. Phelps. Jane Meredith Adams is a special correspondent in San Francisco; Timothy M. Phelps is a reporter in Newsday's Washington Bureau

The Anti-Defamation League's nationwide intelligence network that gathered information on labor unions, political leaders, journalists and many others was operated out of the ADL's New York office, a San Francisco prosecutor said yesterday. John Dwyer, an assistant district attorney investigating allegations that the ADL may have illegally obtained confidential police information, told Newsday that Irwin Suall, the league's director of fact-finding, ran the effort from the ADL's headquarters in New York. Prosecutors also said that undercover operatives were at work in New York and other major American cities. Suall has been widely quoted in the news media as an expert on racist right-wing organizations. Neither he nor any other ADL official has been charged with any crime. Suall and other ADL officials could not be reached yesterday because its offices were closed for the Passover holiday. There was no reply to a message left with one ADL employee. In past statements, the ADL has acknowledged collecting information on racist organizations but has said it violated no laws in doing so. In an interview with Newsday, Roy Bullock, the organization's undercover operative in San Francisco, said he was a "researcher," not the spy that West Coast newspapers have called him. The ADL, with a staff of 400 and a budget of $32 million, has worked for 80 years in this country to stop defamation of Jewish people and to educate Americans about Israel. But according to police affidavits made public last Thursday as justification for bank and office search warrants, Bullock, while surreptitiously on the ADL's payroll, kept files not only on such organizations as "Youth for Hitler" and Arab-Americans, but also on groups he called "pinko," including a Hotel and Restaurant Employees union local, the San Francisco Labor Council, local weekly newspapers, gay rights and animal rights organizations, environmental groups like Greenpeace, religious groups like Jews for Jesus, and numerous black and anti-apartheid groups, including the Black United Fund, the Rainbow Coalition and the Department of Black Studies at San Francisco State University. Arlo Smith, the San Francisco district attorney, said in an interview that "I'm probably in the files too," because, he said, he had given speeches to the NAACP and Arab-American groups that the ADL kept track of. Smith said that potential crimes being investigated include eavesdropping and disclosure and receipt of confidential police files. Bullock allegedly obtained information from San Francisco policeman and former CIA employee Tom Gerard, who told a San Francisco newspaper in an interview from the Philippines that he had gone there to escape prosecution. Bullock, 58, a San Francisco dealer in Asian art, had a desk at the ADL but operated a vast computer data base of 10,000 names out of his modest Victorian apartment. In his first interview since court documents released last week revealed his involvement with the ADL, Bullock yesterday angrily denied that he was a spy or that the ADL was involved in illegal surveillance. "The accusation of spying is false and malicious," he said. "I am by no stretch of the imagination a spy. I'm a researcher. I have worked with the ADL for many years and consider them an honorable organization. I've never known them to be involved in illegal activities." He was a familiar figure to activists in San Francisco, particularly among groups involved in Palestinian and anti-apartheid issues. He attended meetings of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Council, volunteered to work in the office of the anti-apartheid March for Peace, Jobs and Justice and, because of his stocky build, worked security at an Arab-American march, said Jeffrey Blankfort, editor of the Middle East Labor Bulletin. Bullock later created files on those groups. He said "99.9 percent" of the information came from what he called "public sources," including the alternative weekly newspaper in San Francisco, the Bay Guardian, on which he also kept a file. He said most of the people he investigated turned out to be "a collection of gas bags and hot air artists." He said information on such ostensibly apolitical groups as the Earth Island Institute - which was listed in the `PINKO' section, according to the court documents released Thursday - were part of his own private files, not information he was passing on to ADL. The revelation that ADL could be tracking low-profile environmental groups such as Earth Island Institute has infuriated members of those groups. Bullock said he believed the San Francisco district attorney's investigation into the ADL's information-gathering operation is part of an effort to impugn the organization's credibility. "What hidden political agenda is behind this investigation which has served no one?" he asked.

Brando apologizes for remarks, plans Museum of Tolerance visit

Copyright © 1996 Nando.net Copyright © 1996 The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (Apr 10, 2022 11:00 a.m. EDT) -- Marlon Brando apologized for anti-Semitic comments about Jews in Hollywood and plans to make a public statement at the Museum of Tolerance, a rabbi said.

Brando called the center and "expressed his remorse," Rabbi Marvin Hier said Tuesday. Brando will "make a public statement regarding this matter" Friday at the Simon Wiesenthal Center's museum, Hier said.

The 72-year-old Brando was harshly criticized by Jewish groups after remarks last week in an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live."

"Hollywood is run by Jews. It is owned by Jews and they should have a greater sensitivity about the issue of people who are suffering," Brando said.

"He told me he was an early supporter of Israel," said Hier. "I told him, 'Marlon, I never thought you were an anti-Semite, but the words you used on Larry King was music to the ears of racists and bigots all over the world."'

The reclusive star of "The Godfather" and "A Streetcar Named Desire" mentioned on the show the various stereotypes that he said were depicted in films.

"We've seen the nigger, and the greaseball. We've seen the chink. We've seen the slit-eyed dangerous Jap. We have seen the wily Filipino. We've seen everything. But we never saw the kike because they knew perfectly well that that's where you draw the wagons around," Brando said.

"I think it's a good thing but I'm not sure it goes far enough," Abraham H. Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, said of Brando's planned visit.

"He's not a kid going to a museum. He's an adult who's had these views for 25 years," Foxman said from his New York office.

"If he really has remorse, he ought to go see his friend Larry King and tell everyone on the air," he added.

Brando's Friday news conference at the Museum of Tolerance will accomplish the goal of reaching a world audience, Hier said.


ADL - A History of Disinformation and Intimidation

AlAkhbar News Service http://www.iap.org/news/Al-Akhbar/199603/19960322.3.html

Radio Islam http://www.abbc.com/islam/english/toread/adl.htm

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which describes itself as a civil rights organization, has been in the forefront of an ongoing attempt to label legitimate American-Arab and American-Muslim charitable, political, and informational organizations as fronts for terrorism. This attempt is part of a long-standing ADL policy of discrediting any individual or organization opposed to Israel or supportive of Palestinian rights. The ADL's strong political loyalty to Israel as well as its acknowledged ties to Israel's external intelligence agency in addition to its past practices of spreading disinformation and intimidating those who have spoken out against Israeli policies should however serve as a warning about the ADL and the nature of its claims.

When the ADL was founded in 1913 it defined its mission as opposing the defamation of the Jewish people. Over the years, the organization won respect for its active support of civil rights and its opposition to segregation and white supremacist groups. However after the founding of the State of Israel and the 1967 Middle East War, the ADL significantly altered the way it defined its mission. In a 1974 ADL publication entitled "The New Anti-Semitism," then-ADL National Director Benjamin Epstein argued that any "criticism of Israel reflects insensitivity to American Jews and constitutes a form of anti-Semitism." This change in the way it defined its mission meant that the ADL would no longer be engaged in merely civil rights work but would rather take on a very strong political stance in defense of Israel. The main goal of the ADL became to counteract any criticism of Israel and to promote Israel's interests regardless of other considerations. Throughout the 1970's and 1980's, for example, the ADL was in the forefront of an effort to keep documents underscoring Israel's sinking of an American naval ship confidential. Such efforts cannot be understood in the context of the ADL's former civil rights agenda. Similarly, in November, 1994, ADL's Executive Director Abraham Foxman personally appealed to President Bill Clinton to commute the prison sentence of Jonathan Pollard, an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy who sold what the New York Times described as "suitcases full of military intelligence" to Israel. Foxman's appeal to President Clinton can only be understood in light of the ADL's new mission of promoting Israeli interests.

The fact that the ADL has become a pro-Israel interest group is, of course, not in itself problematic. The entire United States political system is based on the freedom of interest groups to compete with others in promoting their often conflicting agendas. However the ADL has overstepped the bounds of legitimacy on a number of levels. The organization has engaged in illegal domestic spying activities, has worked with foreign intelligence agencies to undermine the rights and endanger the lives of American citizens, has undertaken disinformation campaigns slandering and intimidating numerous academicians, politicians, journalists, church officials, and Arab-Americans.

ADL's transgressions were most notably exposed in January 1993 when San Francisco newspapers broke the story of ADL's extensive domestic spying network. The San Francisco Police Department discovered that under the cover of fighting anti-Semitism, the ADL had gathered and sold to intelligence agents of the Israeli and South African governments information on thousands of American individuals and groups. In addition to nearly all Arab American organizations, those whom the ADL targeted included House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ron Dellums, former Congressman Pete McCloskey, Los Angeles Times correspondent Scott Kraft, the board of directors of public television station KQED, the Rainbow Coalition, a number of labor unions, Greenpeace, as well as numerous other journalists, professors, members of Congress, and activists who the ADL suspected had "anti-Israel" leanings. The information which the San Francisco police department confiscated from the ADL offices included illegally obtained confidential police material. The manner by which the ADL obtained such information as well as the fact that they sold it to foreign governments are both felonies.

The ADL's ties to the Mossad, Israel's external intelligence agency, had been known even before the scandal broke out in 1993. During the court proceedings concerning a 1970 lawsuit against the ADL, an internal letter was disclosed in which ADL's Epstein bragged about the close intelligence relations between the ADL and Israel. Furthermore, in his 1988 autobiography, ADL general counsel Arnold Forster described the close connections between the ADL and the Mossad. The Mossad connection is especially disturbing because of the Israeli intelligence agency's long record of engaging in political assassinations of opponents of Israel throughout the world.

Like the Mossad, the ADL has not been content with just gathering information on those who have spoken out against Israel or in favor of Palestinian rights. The ADL has also actively engaged in discrediting them through disinformation campaigns which are aimed at both distorting the records and intimidating those opposed to Israel. While in the 1970's and 1980's, the ADL often falsely labeled such individuals as being connected to the PLO or in the pay of Arab Gulf states, since the 1990's, the ADL has begun labeling them as being connected to Islamic terrorist organizations. The ADL's allegations, while couched in a matter-of-fact style, nearly always falls far short of providing any real evidence. However such allegations have had far-reaching effects. After the ADL accused seven Palestinians and a Kenyan woman in California with ties to a PLO terrorist group, for example, the eight individuals were arrested and deportation proceedings were begun. When it was later discovered that no real evidence existed against the eight individuals except for the fact that they had distributed anti-Israeli magazines, the media sharply criticized the government.

One of its first salvos in the disinformation war was its 1975 report entitled "Target U.S.A.: The Arab Propaganda Offensive," in which the ADL distorted the images of nearly all mainstream Arab-American groups. The ADL followed up that report with its most controversial book of all: Pro-Arab Propaganda: Vehicles and Voices, an enemies list of 31 organizations and 34 individuals which was published in 1983 and was largely aimed at countering opposition to Israel from University professors and student organizations. The publication intentionally takes statements of those on the list out of context, accuses them of Anti-Semitism, and falsely accuses a number of academic scholars of being part of a PLO support network or of having been paid by Gulf Arab countries. The report calls upon Jewish leaders in Universities throughout the country to boycott and intimidate those appearing on the list. Those who appeared on the list later found themselves ostracized by the academic community with some losing their jobs or denied promotions. S.C. Whittaker, the former chairman of the Political Science Department at Rutgers University admitted, for example, that political reasons, rather than academic ones, prevented Dr. Eqbal Ahmad from obtaining a regular teaching appointment after his name appeared on the ADL list. Dr. Noam Chomsky, who also appeared on the list, says that since the book was published, protesters have appeared at every one of his speaking engagements and have distributed distorted ADL reports containing fabricated quotes that he was alleged to have made in an attempt to intimidate him and his listeners. On Nov. 30, 1984, the Middle East Studies Association passed a resolution protesting the "creation, storage, or dissemination of blacklists, enemy lists" or surveys that call for boycotting individuals or intimidating scholars. Similar intimidation campaigns have been waged by the ADL against reporters and journalists who have criticized Israel.

Throughout the 1980's, the ADL also accused liberal church officials, church groups, and religious organizations which called for peace and justice for all in the Middle East as being connected to the PLO. The Reverend Don Wagner and the Presbyterian Church had especially been accused by the ADL of having connections to the PLO, though no evidence was ever presented backing up such contentions. On the other hand, after a 1994 report on the religious right, the ADL was accused by religious conservatives of going after people for their political views and of taking numerous quotes of religious leaders out of context. Also on May 25, 1994, the ADL's Jerusalem office released a sensationalist story which appeared the next day in the New York Times and other newspapers which alleged that the Vatican had admitted to being responsible for the Holocaust. The Vatican later totally denied the story. The ADL's blatant misrepresentation of facts was sharply criticized.

The ADL's credibility has been severely shaken by its long record of disinformation. While the ADL has every right to continue advocating pro-Israel policies, its real agenda should be exposed and it must be made to end the illegal spying, harassment, and intimidation of political opponents. More importantly, U.S. law enforcement agencies, the media, and political circles need to see the ADL for what it is: a pro-Israel group more than ready to distort the truth to further the Israeli agenda. While in retrospect, it now seems very clear that the ADL's wild allegations against alleged PLO support networks in the 1980's were baseless, it must be remembered that at the time they were seen as credible and led many people to lose their jobs and others to be imprisoned. The ADL's current crusade against alleged Islamic terrorist networks is almost identical to its earlier one against so-called ties to the PLO. Both campaigns are based on general stereotypes and fears and are devoid of evidence and fact. To repeat such allegations without further investigating them, as some in the media have done, is unprofessional and unethical. To act upon them, as some law-makers and law-enforcement agencies have done, is dangerous and threatens the freedoms and civil liberties Americans have grown to expect.

Is the Anti-Defamaton League of B'nai B'rith Spying on You?

by Bill Hughes

(Published in the Baltimore Sentinel, September, 1993 issue.)

http://home.earthlink.net/~liamhughes/thought.html

Are you being watched? Is information about your First Amendment activities being sent covetly to alien intelligence agencies? Have secret files been compiled on you? A major scandal, centered around ex-San Francisco Police Inspector Tom Gerard, a shadowy character named Roy Bullock, and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (ADL) suggests that American liberals, and others, may be under surveillance. Evidence seized by the police indicates that numerous progressives activists, newspapers, elected officials, and labor unions-are the targets of a domestic snooping operation. Its legality, and scope, are now being tested and examined in a civil rights case filed in a state court in San Francisco. Gerard has been charged in San Francisco with theft of government property and conspiracy. He is suspected of having collected privileged material on many residents and organizations in the Bay Area. He turned the information over to Bullock. Gerard was introduced to Bullock in the San Francisco office of the ADL. An antique dealer, Bullock, has been the ADL's top "investigator" for more than three decades. The ADL paid him over $170,000 between 1985 and 1992 for his cloak-and-dagger work. Bullock liked to pick through the garbage of his victims, and once infiltrated an Arab-American delegation that visited Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in her Washington, D.C. Office. (Pelosi is the daughter of Baltimore's late Mayor Thomas J. D'Alesandro, Sr.) According to a Los Angeles Times article (04/09/93), Bullock worked as a paid informant for the FBI, as well as the ADL. On April 8, 1993, police carried out a five hour raid of the ADL offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles. They discovered the ADL had copies of computer files on 12,000 Americans and more than 950 groups. According to police reports and court documents, Bullock acknowledged he obtained the information from Gerard, who traded police files, criminal histories and license plate numbers in exchange for Bullock's data on so-called extremist groups. It is feared by some that this confidential information may have been filtered to spook networks in Israel, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. Gerard had tied earlier in his career to the CIA. The ADL boasts of keeping its eye on extreme right-wing groups, like the Skinheads, the Klu Klux Klan, and Aryan Nations. Their role in this mess indicates they may have reached too far in search for "Anti-Semites." Police found files on the African National Congress: the ACLU: Irish Americans; the United Auto Workers; AIDS activist groups like ACT-UP; Mother Jones magazine; Pacifica News Network; Lesbian Agenda for Action; Greenpeace; Christic Institute; Rep. Roy Dellums (D-CA); the National Lawyers Guild; NAACP; CISPES; Carpenters Local 22; Jews for Jesus; and many Arab and Palestinian individuals and organizations. The ADL had denied any wrongdoing in the growing scandal. Gerard has pleaded "not guilty" and released on $20,000 bail. Bullock has not been charged. The probe is continuing. Abraham Foxman, the head of the ADL, lashed out at the San Francisco district attorney for "trying us in the media, " according to an interview he gave to the Northern California Bulletin, a local Jewish weekly. Foxman said the ADL would continue to monitor people or groups that "pose a threat to Jews" and defended the organization's probe of the African National Congress on grounds the ANC "were violent, they were anti-Semitic, they were pro-PLO, and they were anti-Israel." (See The Washington Report on the Middle East magazine,08/93). The ADL was founded in 1913 for the declared purpose of defending Jews against "defamation." For the most part, their record over the years has been a laudable one. During the Reagan years, however, the ADL made a noticeable turn to the Right. Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal, a respected author and anti-Zionist, said, "What exactly constitutes anti-Semitism was to receive continually different interpretations. With the creation of Israel in 1948, the meaning of the word was broadened and eventually, totally distorted." (The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, 07/93). Irwin Suall presently runs the ADL's "fact finding" division out of their national office at the United Nations Plaza in Manhattan. It operates in all 50 states and has 31 regional offices, and it works closely with state and federal police forces. It has over 400 employees and an annual budget of around $32 million. In a memo dated July, 1992, Suall praised Roy Bullock as "our number one investigator." He was also quoted as saying that the real enemies of the Jews are on the "American Left." (Robert I. Friedman's 'The Enemy Within', Village Voice, 05/11/93). On April 8, 1993, a detailed report on this brouhaha was presented on ABC's "Nightly News" before a national audience estimated at over 18 million. This expose first ran in the print media in the San Francisco Examiner and was later taken up by the Los Angeles Times. Alexander Cockburn has been doing a running and biting commentary on it in the pages of The Nation. In his riveting account of the affair, Friedman made this damning statement: "Once a proud human rights organization, the ADL had become the Jewish Thought Police." The ADL sharply disagrees with that assessment. They see themselves as an altruistic human rights organization dedicated to watching out for the kooks and fringe groups in our society. Ex-US Rep. Pete McCloskey (R-CA) has filed a class action lawsuit in a California court against the ADL, charging invasion of privacy. His name also appears in the data base, along with that of his wife. McCloskey has been a persistent critic of Israel's brutal suppression of the 1.8 million Palestinians languishing in the occupied West Bank and Gaza. The son of the former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens, Yigal Arens, is also a plaintiff in the suit. Arens supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "The ADL believes,"said Arens, "that anyone who is an Arab-American or who speaks politically against Israel is at least a closet anti-Semite." (See also, The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, (06/93). The civil suit claims that the ADL collected information on opponents of Israeli and South African government policies and passed it on to those countries. The ADL has denied all the charges in the suit and has promised a vigorous defense. It says it does not condone illegal methods of obtaining information. Bullock had his computer-based data divided into four categories: "Right Wing", "Pinkos", "Arab and Skinhead" organizations. About 4,000 of the files are on Arab-Americans; the rest are on groups and individuals as diverse as the Assembly of Jesus; Boycott Coke; Black United Fund; the Weatherman Underground; and the United Farm Workers. Bullock admits to selling some of his ADL files on anti-Apartheid activists to South African intelligence agents. He also had ties to a group of informants across the country with code names, like "Scumbag", "Ironside", and "Flipper". Attorney Marc Van de Hout of the National Lawyers Guild, which is listed in the ADL's files, said, "I am a Jew myself, and when I see the breath of the organizations in these files that the ADL has conducted surveillance on, it is very clear that they have sort of lost touch with reality in terms of organizations that are engaged in real anti-Semitic activity." (See Washington Report, 08/93). As Doug Struck's recent insightful reporting in the Baltimore Sun amply demonstrates, the Israeli crackdown in the occupied territories has resulted in gross abuses of human rights, including the "torture of Palestinian prisoners." Americans should have the right to complain about Israeli wrongdoing, about their huge annual raids on our national treasury ($11.3 billion in 1993), or their controversial trial of John Demjanjuk, without ending up in a file of the ADL or under surveillance. I think it is wrong for the ADL, or any other private group, to appoint itself as the pseudo-guardian of our civil liberties. The ADL, however, like any other defendant, is entitled to its day in court and to present its side of this mounting controversy to an objective fact finder.


The ADL: The drive to outlaw free speech and thought

top of page Question: What does the current media campaign to outlaw the private ownership of semiautomatic weapons by U.S. citizens have to do with the rapidly growing corpus of legislation dealing with "hate crimes"?

Answer: Success of the first is necessary to insure compliance with the second, and both are the creatures of a quasi-governmental secret-police agency of whose existence most Americans are unaware.

There is underway in America a vast, well-oiled, heavily financed campaign to limit sharply the rights of Americans under the First Amendment to their Constitution and to eliminate altogether their rights under the Second Amendment. It already has scored notable successes in rolling back the most basic American freedoms. It is gearing up now for a drive to achieve total victory in this decade.

The principal instrument in this campaign is a secret-police agency more sinister, more cunning, and infinitely more malevolent than the Soviet Committee for State Security -- the KGB -- ever was. Its initials are ADL.Those initials stand for Anti-Defamation League, an innocuous-sounding name wholly out of keeping with the character of the organization.

To understand its significance we must look into its origins. The ADL is the action arm of B'nai B'rith, the international Jewish secret society, whose Hebrew name means in English "Sons of the Covenant." The "covenant" referred to is the one supposedly entered into between the ancient Hebrews and their tribal deity Yahweh more than 3,000 years ago.

Its terms are spelled out in Deuteronomy, the fifth book of Moses. The Jews pledged their allegiance to Yahweh in return for his promise to take them as his "chosen people" and to give them dominion over all the lands and the other peoples of the earth: "Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours." (Deut. 11: 24) B'nai B'rith sees as its task the taking of all necessary measures for this promise to be fulfilled.

The ADL itself was organized in the United States as a subdivision of B'nai B'rith in 1913, and its ostensible purpose was to counter the "defamation" of Jews, whose public image was even worse then than now. The ADL went about its work in characteristically heavy-handed fashion, bullying and intimidating those who said or published anything the organization considered incompatible with Jewish interests, and lobbying legislators and other public officials to obtain legislation or rulings which would advance Jewish aims. If a prominent businessman, educator, or politician made a public statement the Jews did not like, the ADL would attempt to persuade him to retract it, hinting at economic or political reprisals if he refused. If intimidation failed, the ADL often would turn to defamation, feeding derogatory statements about the target to newspapers under Jewish control or friendly to Jewish interests until he was thoroughly discredited in the eyes of the public.

Typical of ADL efforts in the period prior to the Second World War was its attempt to ban a book, Conquest of a Continent, by Madison Grant, the noted naturalist and president of the New York Zoological Society. The book was published in 1933 by Charles Scribner's Sons and bore an enthusiastic introduction by Professor Henry Fairfield Osborn, the most prominent American paleontologist of his day. In the book Grant outlined the racial history of North America and argued for the reform of immigration laws in order to keep America primarily Northern European in its racial composition.

Jews are hardly mentioned in the book, and in no way can it be considered a "defamation" of them. Jewish policy then as now, however, was to change the European racial character of the United States by cutting off the flow of immigrants (other than Jews) from Europe and increasing the flow from the non-White world.

Consequently the ADL mounted a campaign with publishers, asking them not to review the book or mention it in any way in their own publications, and with booksellers, asking them not to handle the book. A form letter dated December 13, 1933, mailed from the national headquarters of the ADL (then in Chicago), and signed by the then-director of the organization, Richard E. Gutstadt, notified publishers that Grant's book "is extremely antagonistic to Jewish interests" and added: "We are interested in stifling the sale of this book."

Grant's book is only one of many which received the same attention from the ADL. As time passed the organization's censorship activity became more sophisticated and more effective. Defamation of offending authors, speakers, or public officials became a more often used weapon. In line with this defamation activity the ADL's undercover investigative capabilities were greatly expanded. A network of unpaid Jewish agents all across the country reported to ADL headquarters, where dossiers were built up on tens of thousands of American citizens. Information from these dossiers, which might contain everything from basic biographical and employment data to rumors about marital difficulties or drinking problems, was used to fabricate defamatory news releases on anyone the ADL wanted to discredit.

By the early 1940s the ADL had strengthened its position as an information source for the news media -- the result in part of the increased number of Jews in controlling positions in the media. It also had established informal relationships with a number of local, state, and Federal police departments. It often was the case that when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was interested in the affairs of a person involved in patriotic or "right wing" activity, the ADL already would have a dossier on him as someone actually or potentially hostile to Jewish interests and would happily share the dossier with the FBI. Sometimes the ADL would initiate the contact: if its informants had provided information to headquarters suggesting that an alleged "anti-Semite" might not have paid enough income tax or might have an unregistered firearm hidden in his attic, a tip would be given to the appropriate police agency.

In the past half-century the ADL's links with the media and with law-enforcement agencies have grown enormously. Today virtually all the controlled news media routinely print anything given to them by the ADL, as if it had come over the Associated Press wire, and they routinely go to the ADL for commentary whenever any news story is being prepared on a person known to oppose Jewish policies.

Likewise, the ADL has become the standard source to which government investigative agencies turn whenever their target is such a person. In the latter case the flow of information goes in both directions: not only does the ADL have the opportunity to peek into the government's confidential investigative files, but its agents are even invited to accompany the FBI when raids or arrests are being made on a target of interest to it.

The biggest development for the ADL in the postwar period came as a result of the Jews' land-grab in the Middle East and the formation of the state of Israel. The coordinating center for B'nai B'rith's activities moved from New York to Jerusalem. Investigating, defaming, and intimidating Americans who did not agree with the Israel-first foreign policy of the U.S. government became one of the ADL's chief concerns. Patriots who protested Washington's failure to take reprisals in 1967 when the Israelis deliberately rocketed, strafed, and torpedoed the USS Liberty, killing 34 Americans and wounding 171 others, were denounced as "anti-Semites" by the ADL. In 1974, when NATIONAL VANGUARD editor William Pierce sued U.S. Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger in an effort to halt the flow of U.S. weapons and military supplies to Israel, the ADL jumped into the suit on the side of the government as an amicus curiae.

As early as 1971, in sworn testimony in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, a top B'nai B'rith official, Saul Joftes, formerly director general of the B'nai B'rith's Office of International Affairs, admitted that B'nai B'rith "engages in international politics and more often than not does the bidding of the government of Israel. Its leaders make frequent trips to Israel for indoctrination and instructions." The issue at stake in the court case was whether or not B'nai B'rith's U.S. affiliate -- and the ADL -- should be prosecuted for failing to register as agents of a foreign power under the U.S. Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.

The fix was in, however; by the 1970s the ADL and B'nai B'rith had become "untouchables." Not only did they escape prosecution, they continued to operate as tax-exempt "religious and charitable" organizations.

Silencing and discrediting Americans who disapproved of U.S. taxpayers' money being used to support Israel's wars of expansion in the Middle East was not the only ADL activity in the postwar period. The organization worked hard and effectively to advance other Jewish goals: the opponents of increased non-White immigration were attacked, aid was given to the pulling down of the barriers against racial mixing, new restrictions on the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms were supported. The ADL played a significant role in every facet of B'nai B'rith's program to demoralize, dilute, disorganize, and disarm White Americans -- all in the name of the fight against "bigotry."

When, during the madness of the 1960s, the Jews finally succeeded in pushing through a new immigration law designed to bring more non-Whites into the United States, the ADL crowed about its success. The November 1965 issue of the ADL Bulletin, the group's internal publication, carried an article by the director of the ADL's law department, Sol Rabkin, who was present at the signing of the new law by President Lyndon Johnson. (Also present at the signing was Benjamin R. Epstein, then the national director of the ADL.) Under the heading "The restrictive national origins quota system is finally abolished -- after a forty year fight," Rabkin boasted: "The Anti-Defamation League is proud of the educational role it played in helping to bring this about."

The same issue of the ADL Bulletin had a notice of the appointment of the director of the ADL's Washington office, Herman Edelsberg, to the government post of executive director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where he could work more effectively to force the racial mixing of employees in shops and offices all across America. In this regard it is interesting to note that the ADL actually has two "equal opportunity" programs. One -- that headed by Mr. Edelsberg in 1965 and by others since then -- is to give Blacks and other minorities precedence over Whites in hiring and promotion for blue-collar and clerical employment. The other is to oppose Black demands for precedence in admissions to law schools and medical schools, and for hiring and promotion in certain professional occupations where Jews are heavily over-represented.

By the mid-1970s B'nai B'rith had had very substantial success in virtually every phase of its campaign to undermine White society in America. It still was moving aggressively on a dozen fronts: introducing resolutions to require "Holocaust" indoctrination for Gentile children in the public schools; demanding the rewriting of school textbooks and the reworking of school curricula to make them appropriately "multi-cultural" and eliminate what the ADL complained was the "principally white, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon view of America" presented by older texts and curricula; pushing Christian churches, both Protestant and Catholic, to make even further changes in their doctrines, so that their teachings about Jews would consist of nothing but the most fulsome praise; lobbying the government to punish American companies refusing to trade with Israel; asking for more restrictive anti-gun laws; etc.

These ongoing programs were only a part of the ADL's activity, however. The late 1970s saw a slowing of the frantic social change which had kept America in turmoil for nearly two decades. Much of that turmoil had been planned and instigated by B'nai B'rith. Even before the beginning of the 1980s and the relative stasis of the Reagan era, B'nai B'rith was planning new programs to head off any White backlash which might undo the changes it had wrought in American society. A new emphasis on secret-police activity characterized these programs.

At an ADL banquet in Palm Beach, Florida, early in 1975, as reported in the March 1975 issue of the ADL Bulletin, ADL Chairman Seymour Graubard boasted that the "ADL, to the limits of its financial ability, is expanding its intelligence operation . . ."

The building of dossiers on the opponents and potential opponents of the Jews' plan for America was no longer enough, however. During times of economic prosperity the old tactics of defamation and intimidation might be sufficient to keep the goyim in line, but a severe and prolonged economic decline could stiffen the spines of White Americans to the point where they no longer would be frightened into silence by the ADL's power of the smear. It became prudent, in the view of the leaders of B'nai B'rith, to enlist the police powers of government in order to silence and disarm their critics before any substantial backlash developed. To this end the ADL launched a new legislative lobbying campaign of ominous import.

The ADL's lawyers drew up a series of "model statutes" to be introduced by the organization's agents into the Congress and state legislatures. Some of these ADL-designed statutes are aimed at a more rapid phasing-out of citizens' rights to keep and bear arms. The ADL always has been a leading advocate of gun control -- much more so than the public has realized, because often while other gun-control organizations are out front holding press conferences and making headlines, it is the ADL pulling the strings for them behind the scenes. Beginning in the 1980s, however, there was a new urgency to the organization's efforts. The rationale used by the ADL now is that new, sweeping anti-gun laws are needed to protect law-abiding citizens from "right-wing terrorism." The ADL Bulletin has warned that "arms and stores of ammunition are being collected in uncounted numbers, and extremists have made clear that they are ready to use them." To back up this claim that armed White "extremists" are a growing menace the ADL has fed a steady stream of alarmist reports to the controlled news media. An excellent illustration of the way in which the ADL has carried on its anti-gun campaign is provided by its "model anti-paramilitary training statute," designed to prevent White patriots from acquiring or providing instruction in the martial arts.

The organization unveiled this model statute in 1980. By November 1981 the ADL Bulletin was able to boast that ADL agents had succeeded in having bills based on the statute enacted into law by the legislatures of California, Connecticut, and North Carolina. By early 1987 the number of states which had knuckled under to ADL pressure had grown to 14. The ADL Bulletin for March 1987 reported on its success in having one major newspaper serve as an ADL mouthpiece in this regard: "In the Atlanta Constitution, ADL's model anti-paramilitary training statute won editorial words of praise while the newspaper suggested that Georgia should pass such a law.

The article reported that ADL has spotted secret camps from Alabama to California and from Connecticut to Texas which have "a mix of vitriol and violence (that) poses a danger to all peace-loving Americans but particularly to minorities. There ought to be a law against paramilitary camps of this kind -- and in 14 states there is," said the editorial.<

The piece went on to praise the fact that while holding pathological hatemongers at bay, the ADL model aims to satisfy such constitutional considerations as the rights of free speech and free association. "The ADL's steamroller had picked up considerable speed by 1987, and just three months later the June 1987 issue of the ADL Bulletin bragged: "Now there are 18. The number of states adopting anti-paramilitary training statutes based on ADL's model legislation has reached 18 with Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, and Idaho enacting such laws in recent months."

In a letter to Howard Ross, director of ADL's Western Pennsylvania-West Virginia Regional Office, West Virginia's Governor Arch A. Moore, Jr., expressed his appreciation for the League's cooperation in moving the legislation to passage.

"The ADL also worked diligently to subvert the law-enforcement establishment and to put as many individual law-enforcement officers into its pockets as possible. For the chiefs of big-city police departments, expense-paid "fact finding" trips to Israel could be arranged. For others there were ADL-sponsored "training seminars," where politically ambitious police officials could be told of the advantages to be had by directing more of their energies and resources to the repression of "White extremists."

For example, the October 1987 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "Some 200 law-enforcement officers ranging from FBI agents to chiefs of police, sheriffs, and attorneys general in the 13 Western states from California to Wyoming attended a special seminar on combatting terrorism, arranged by Betsy Rosenthal, ADL's Western Civil Rights area director, and Harvey B. Schechter, Western States area director.

The Los Angeles Police Academy was the scene of the all-day session. The keynote speakers were Arieh Ivtsan, Israel's Ambassador to Liberia and immediate past commissioner of the Israeli National Police Force, and Irwin Suall, director of ADL's Civil Rights Division Fact Finding Department.

Packets distributed to the attendees included ADL's reports on "Extremism Targets the Prisons" and "Propaganda of the Deed," the League's Security Handbook and a list of recent publications on extremism and extremist groups with an ADL-prepared synopsis. "By sponsoring such seminars the ADL has reinforced its image as a quasi-governmental agency, to which genuine law-enforcement agencies are justified in turning for advice and information. Perhaps most important, policemen and police agencies accustomed to thinking of their responsibility as combatting drug dealers, robbers, rapists, burglars, automobile thieves, murderers, and the like are informed that there is a new type of criminal about which they should be even more concerned: the "extremist."

The ADL, of course, defines the term for them and tells them who fits the definition.

Despite the ADL's pretense of concern for "Constitutional considerations," its model anti-paramilitary training law, in fact, totally disregards the rights of free speech and free association. It prohibits certain types of speech, if that speech is involved in training or instruction in the martial arts, and it prohibits association for the purpose of hearing such speech. And the ADL campaign to push its model law through all of the state legislatures is based on fraud, deceit, and political corruption. The way it worked in West Virginia provides a good illustration. There has not been any paramilitary training in that state -- at least, not within the memory of any news reporters or law-enforcement people there spoken to by this writer: no reason, in other words, for even the most timid of West Virginia's minority citizens (barely two percent of the state's population) to feel threatened by paramilitary activity -- and so not a very good prospect for the ADL's anti-paramilitary training law. Then, in mid-1985, William Pierce, editor of this magazine and author (using his nom de plume Andrew Macdonald) of The Turner Diaries, a novel about urban guerrilla warfare and White revolution, left his home of 18 years in the Washington, D.C., area and resettled himself on a mountainside in a remote, wilderness area of West Virginia, the better to commune with his God and write the words which need to be written about this troubled era. That was all the ADL needed to launch its campaign in the state. The only newspaper printed in West Virginia which is circulated statewide is the Charleston Gazette, and it is entirely at the disposal of the ADL. Early in 1986 it carried the first of a series of ADL-sponsored scare stories about Dr. Pierce's move to the state. He had not come to West Virginia to meditate and to write, the stories claimed, but to build a terrorist training camp. The 360 acres of forested mountain land he had bought were regularly referred to as "a compound." It was surrounded by an electrified fence patrolled by armed men. One of the buildings on the land was located directly over a "large complex of limestone caverns reported to be heavily stocked with weapons." It was believed that missile silos were being dug into the mountainside. Supporting these alarmist stories was the local sheriff, who happily provided newsmen with confirmation about the electrified fence, the weapons-filled caves, and the armed men. The "compound," he asserted, was adjacent to one of the largest wilderness areas in the eastern United States, and he was quite worried about any run-in with Dr. Pierce or his associates which might involve "gunplay."

The ADL then trotted the sheriff over to the state legislature in Charleston to tell the same story to the state's lawmakers. West Virginia politics is probably not much more corrupt than that of other states, such as Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. But that's bad enough, and the ADL was able to enlist the state's attorney general, Charlie Brown, and its governor, Arch Moore, as well as the aforementioned sheriff, in its campaign to protect the citizens of West Virginia from Dr. Pierce and his terrorist training camp. The attorney general spoke at meetings and seminars organized by the ADL to alert the public to the danger. And as usual the Jewish group rounded up a number of non-Jewish groups to front for it: the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the West Virginia Education Association, a board of Presbyterian preachers, the Rainbow Coalition, and several others. The ADL named its collection of front groups "Citizens for Passage of an Unlawful Paramilitary Training Act" and, operating it like a ventriloquist's dummy, called for the enactment of its model statute in the name of "the citizens of West Virginia."

There was, of course, not a shred of truth in the stories about electrified fences, weapons-filled caves, missile silos, or training camps of any sort, terrorist or otherwise. But the news media being what they are, and politics being what it is, there were no news stories to contradict those of the Charleston Gazette, and no member of the state legislature saw fit to investigate the matter himself, even to the extent of taking a personal look at the alleged terrorist training camp or giving Dr. Pierce a telephone call to ask a few questions. The ADL's word on the matter was accepted, and the ADL's bill was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor.

Sneaking laws against paramilitary training through state legislatures is only one facet of the ADL's effort to disarm America's citizens, but it is an important facet because it reveals the political motive behind the ADL's anti-gun drive. The ADL is not concerned about drug addicts with "Saturday night specials," but it is very much concerned about armed patriots who might not approve of the Jewish plan for America. The organization has been active recently in fanning the hysteria over "assault" rifles and in instigating the passage of laws at the state and local levels to prohibit their ownership.

Even more dangerous than the ADL's anti-gun and anti-paramilitary activities, however, is its campaign to establish a new category of crime: so-called "hate crime." Defined roughly, it is any act or speech motivated by hostile feelings based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. Thus, if you are a White man, and you punch a Black man in the nose because you do not like Blacks as a general rule, it is not simply an assault; it is a "hate crime," and if you are convicted of it in a jurisdiction where the ADL has succeeded in having its model "ethnic intimidation" bill enacted into law, you will be sent to prison for three times as long as if you'd punched your mother-in-law instead (assuming she's White).

A "hate crime" also occurs if you are a White person who is generally well disposed toward Blacks, but you become engaged in a shouting match with one of them -- perhaps a dispute over a parking space -- and in the heat of the fray call him a "Black bastard." That, you see, is "ethnic intimidation," even if no blows are exchanged, and the ADL would like to send you to the state penitentiary for five years for it. You also commit a "hate crime" if you shout "nigger!" at a Black driver who cuts you off on the highway.

The ADL has been promoting "hate crime" laws for more than a decade. The January 1981 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "A joint New York State/ADL Committee on Public Policy has endorsed legislation. . . which would make graffitti and harassment based on religion, ethnicity, and race an offense under Civil Rights statutes [emphasis added]. The New Jersey regional office [of the ADL] is working with both the State Police and the County Prosecutor's Association. At ADL's initiative an Ethnic Terrorism Bill, which would change the act of anti-Semitic or racial vandalism from a misdemeanor to a third-degree crime has been introduced in the New Jersey Legislature."Less than a year later, in November 1981, the ADL Bulletin was able to boast: "Gov. Brendan Byrne of New Jersey signed into law an ethnic terrorism bill that makes racial or religious vandalism a crime punishable by three to five years in prison and a fine of up to $7,500.

ADL's regional board called for such legislation in 1979. . . and ADL was in the forefront of the two-year effort to win passage of the bill. "Much of the early ADL propaganda in favor of "hate crime" legislation attempted to cloak the ADL's true aim behind a pretended concern for protecting places of worship from "religious vandalism." Thus the February 1982 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "ADL has developed a model religious vandalism law to provide those states that do not have such legislation with a single, comprehensive, constitutionally sound approach to this problem.

The model statute's first and second sections create penalties for vandalism against houses of worship, cemeteries, schools and community centers, and also for committing certain crimes "by reason of the race, color, religion or national origin of another person" [emphasis added]."

A year later, in February 1983, the ADL Bulletin was able to claim substantial progress at the state level: "Mr. Perlmutter [then the ADL's national director] expressed the hope that other states would follow the lead of the 12 thus far -- Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington -- which have enacted laws imposing stiffer penalties for persons convicted of religious or racial vandalism or other acts motivated by bigotry [emphasis added]."

At that time the ADL, however, was still far short of its ultimate legislative goal: a Federal law prohibiting any expression of hostility toward, or any criticism of, Jews or other non-Whites by Whites. In the mid-1980s it shifted the emphasis of its campaign from the state to the national level. Its strategy was two-pronged: first, to condition legislators and publicists and then the general public to accept the concept of "hate crime" as a distinct, new category of crime; and second, to persuade the American people that a new body of legislation is needed to protect them from such crime -- needed so urgently, in fact, that they should be willing to sacrifice the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution in order to be safe from a dangerous new breed of "hate criminals."

To implement the first prong of that strategy the ADL formulated another of its "model statutes": a hate-crimes statistics reporting statute. Lobbying intensely, the ADL used its media outlets to publicize its own statistics, which not surprisingly showed a sharp rise in "hate crimes" throughout the latter half of the decade. A Federal law was needed, the ADL claimed, to track such crime. In January 1990 the organization reported that "hate crimes" had reached an all-time high during 1989. Leading the list were 1,432 "anti-Semitic incidents" reported by its agents around the country, ranging from swastikas daubed on driveways to arson. In April 1990 the Congress passed, and President Bush signed, the desired law. The new Hate Crimes Statistics Act requires the Justice Department to gather the statistics that the ADL formerly had gathered. All incidents in which hatred or prejudice based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation is alleged to be a motive will henceforth be subject to special Federal scrutiny and record keeping. If a homosexual in Norfolk, Virginia, makes a pass at a sailor and has his teeth knocked out for his trouble, the Justice Department in Washington wants to know all about it. If a Vietnamese "refugee" in Los Angeles finds a "gooks go home" message chalked on the windshield of his car, the FBI will investigate. It's the law now.

One might wonder why the ADL went to so much trouble to persuade the Federal government to duplicate one of the Jewish group's functions. The reason, of course, is not that more crime statistics are needed by anyone, least of all by the ADL; it is that now the Federal government has officially recognized the ADL's definition of a new category of crime. Now it will be the government, not just some Jewish group with a strange name, investigating and publicizing every hostile word or act based on race, religion, or sexual orientation. That is the first step toward persuading the Congress to enact, and the public to accept, new laws.

There will continue to be a screen of words -- "terrorism," "religious vandalism," and "hate, hate, hate" -- thrown up to disguise the true goals of those pushing for Federal "hate crime" legislation. As a result of this obfuscation the impression in many minds will be that the purpose of such legislation is merely to penalize those who paint swastikas on Jewish tombstones or set fire to synagogues. Who could object to a law against that? What the ADL really has in mind is revealed by an incident which occurred at the beginning of this year in West Milford, New Jersey. A young White man, 22-year-old Richard E. Lindstrom, stuck a three-inch by five-inch, orange-and-black sticker on a traffic sign and was arrested by a policeman who saw him do it. The message on the sticker was: "Earth's most endangered species: the White race. Help preserve it. Write or call National Alliance, ..." Ordinarily one would expect someone in Mr. Lindstrom's position to receive a citation for littering. In 1981, however, the ADL had succeeded in persuading the legislators of New Jersey to enact a so-called "Ethnic Terrorism Law," and he was charged under that law. He was facing as much as five years in prison and a fine of $7,500 for posting a sticker asking the public to help preserve the White race.

Anyone who understands the B'nai B'rith mentality can see the logic in that. To suggest that the White race (and, of course, one understands that "White" means European, or Aryan, excluding Semites) ought to be preserved is to challenge the Yahweh-given right of the Sons of the Covenant to rule the earth and its peoples as they see fit. That's clearly anti-Semitic. That stabs terror into the heart of every righteous Holocaust survivor. Therefore, Mr. Lindstrom committed an act of "ethnic terrorism" and ought to be put away for good.

Under the circumstances, however, to have tried him on an "ethnic terrorism" charge at this time would have been premature and might even have jeopardized the ADL's campaign for a comprehensive Federal "hate crime" law. There were vague mutterings from the American Civil Liberties Union, and it was even conceivable that some of the more loosely controlled elements in the news media might publicize the case and cause a White backlash around the country. Cooler heads in the local ADL office eventually prevailed, and the charge against Mr. Lindstrom was reduced to one of littering. Five years from now they might be able to make the "ethnic terrorism" charge stick, but not in 1990.

To ensure that they not only will have the Federal laws in place they are seeking by the end of this decade, but also will be able to make them stick, the ADL and other Jewish groups are coordinating their efforts. For the past few years they have been using the controlled entertainment media in an especially insidious way to condition the American people to accept passively the yoke planned for them. They have created a new film genre -- the "White terrorist" film -- to persuade the public that there is a growing danger from armed White "haters."

In 1987 we were hit with Into the Homeland, a film which attempts to convince East Coast city dwellers that the rural heartland of the Midwest is on the point of being taken over by heavily armed Christian Fundamentalists who not only don't like non-Whites, but who deal murderously with anyone of any hue who gets in their way. Only viewers with sharp eyes will catch the acknowledgement to the ADL among the credits at the end of the film. The film uses the scenario developed in a special report issued by the ADL in 1986, "The American Farmer and the Extremists."

In 1988 we were treated to a number of other films of the same ilk, the three most notable of them being Betrayed, Skinheads -- the Second Coming of Hate, and Talk Radio. The first of this trio, which was the most widely seen, portrays the White "haters" of the rural Midwest as not only heavily armed but also well organized and well financed, with top-level political connections in Washington. Their favorite Saturday-night pastime is to kidnap a Black from a nearby town, turn him loose in the woods, and then hunt him down and kill him.

Skinheads -- the Second Coming of Hate is the first in a series of Jewish films portraying working-class urban White youths who affect the skinhead dress and tonsure as viciously depraved, murderous thugs who hate not only Blacks and Jews but the whole world. The guidelines for these films are set in several ADL publications, most notably "`Shaved for Battle': Skinheads Target America's Youth" (1987) and "Young and Violent: The Growing Menace of America's Neo-Nazi Skinheads" (1988).

Talk Radio, loosely based on the 1984 assassination of Jewish radio host Alan Berg in Denver, allegedly by White revolutionaries, advances the thesis that people who haven't wholeheartedly embraced the brave, new pluralistic world of racial mixing, homosexuality, and feminism promoted by the ADL -- i.e., White racists -- are hair-trigger psychotics who may explode with murderous fury at the least provocation. It is the only one of the 1988 films which is even remotely credible to a sophisticated viewer. Most American television and cinema viewers are anything but sophisticated, unfortunately. The Jews already have succeeded in convincing many of them that certain completely legal acts or patterns of behavior are illegal. After seeing so many television episodes in which a hateful Ku Klux Klansman sneaks around like a criminal and is treated like a criminal by the other actors, the viewer can hardly be blamed for having the confused notion that there's something inherently illegal about being a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

In 1989, among many others, we had Dead Bang and So Proudly We Hail, two anti-skinhead films which distort the skinhead life-style into something far beyond the bounds of reality. Skinheads are depicted as the violence-prone storm troopers of a huge, sophisticated, highly organized neo-Nazi network. The latter of these films was a made-for-TV film written and directed by Lionel Chetwynd of the American Jewish Committee. In a booklet published by the Jewish group in conjunction with the broadcast of the film over CBS-affiliated stations, Skinheads: Who They Are & What to Do When They Come to Town, Chetwynd writes:

""So Proudly We Hail" is my way of speaking out. Through a fictionalized account based on real events, the film demonstrates how hate can be cultivated and grown into ideology. "

One can only wonder what "real events" Chetwynd had in mind. The film shows a neo-Nazi organization developed to a level that real neo-Nazis can only dream about. And it drags out old, long-discredited Jewish canards about lampshades made from the skin of flayed Jewish concentration-camp victims and the like. The bulk of the American Jewish Committee's booklet shows as little regard for the truth as the film itself, consisting mainly of absurdly exaggerated claims of the menace to ordinary citizens from skinheads and exhortations to support various Jewish "model statutes" on "hate crimes" and outlawing semiautomatic weapons.

In 1990, the "White terrorist" genre is expanding to include segments of several popular cops-and-robbers television series, as well as full-length films. And the dual purpose remains: to both repulse and frighten the average American. Racially conscious White men and women must be perceived by the conforming television viewer as both hateful and dangerous.

Within the next few years the ADL hopes to have enforceable Federal "hate crime" legislation in place which, in the name of preventing "religious vandalism" or "ethnic intimidation," will make it illegal to print, possess, sell, or post a sticker of the sort Richard Lindstrom put on a traffic sign in West Milford, New Jersey, earlier this year. Not just stickers, but also books, pamphlets, leaflets -- or any public utterance -- offensive to a racial or religious minority or to homosexuals will be outlawed. Whether or not a person was motivated by a dislike for Blacks, Jews, homosexuals, or some other officially protected minority when he took some action against one of them will determine his punishment, and anything that he has said or written in the past may be used to infer what his motivation was. "Hate crime" will have become "thought crime."

Lest there be any doubt that this is what the Jews actually are aiming for, consider the following comments by Jewish lawyer Bruce Fein, who writes on legal topics for a number of publications. The comments come from a feature article by him published in the May 1, 1990, edition of the Washington Times, and the article in turn is based on his remarks at an Oxford-Northwestern Debate in Washington the preceding month:

"Should speech intended to ignite religious or racial animosity be prohibited? Let the answer speak from the weeping cemeteries around the world overflowing with the victims of racial and religious prejudice. ...What is the paramount purpose of speech in a civilized society? It is to trigger contemplation, reason and tolerance for competing ideas as the moving force for private and political action. ...What is the purpose of racially or religiously bigoted speech? It is to arouse unthinking hatred, violence and intolerance in the audience... In sum, the invectives of the racial or religious bigot are no more free speech than is [sic] the vulgar pornographic ululations of Annie Sprinkle a cousin of the Bolshoi Ballet. If the law supposes otherwise, as Mr. Bumble observed, "the law is a ass, a idiot." If racially or religiously bigoted speech were innocuous, then it might be ignored by governments. But it is not.

The ugliest marks in the history of the United States have stemmed from the incitements to racial prejudice practiced by Theodore Bilbo, Orville Faubus, the Ku Klux Klan, and the producers of "The Birth of a Nation." Diatribes of these types create an explosive social nitroglycerine waiting for an epithet or racial incident to spark violence. ...It is said that if racially or religiously bigoted speech is squelched, there will be no stopping point to prevention of genuine free speech. Nonsense! The progress of civilization has been the progress of making refinements and differentiations in the law. Prohibitions on racially or religiously derogatory speech have existed in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, West Germany, and elsewhere without undermining democracy, political dissent or debate. ...Prohibiting racially and religiously bigoted speech is praiseworthy because it seeks to elevate, not to degrade, because it draws from human experience, not from woolly dogmas or academic slogans, because it salutes reason as the backbone of freedom and tolerance. Is that clear enough?"

Those "woolly dogmas" and "academic slogans" this smart-mouth Jew boy dismisses with a sneer are the things that the founders of this nation were prepared to defend with their lives, things that men of our race have given their lives for often in the past. He and his fellow Jews evidently believe, however, that the present generation of Americans have had their minds and their spines sufficiently softened by 40 years of Jewish propaganda so that they won't even look up from their television screens when our freedom to speak our minds is taken away from us and Jewish "reason" becomes the law of the land.

He is correct, of course, in indicating that speech is restricted in many other countries -- although hardly without undermining dissent or debate. In Canada, Great Britain, West Germany, France, and Sweden, to mention just a few places, the Jews have succeeded in making it a criminal offense to question their perennially profitable "Holocaust" claims, for example. The German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zündel, whose case has been discussed several times in these pages, has been convicted and sentenced in Canada for that very "hate crime." In Sweden last December a radio broadcaster was sentenced to prison and the license of his station was revoked because he criticized Israeli actions against Palestinians in a way that Jews considered derogatory.

George Orwell missed the date by a few years -- at least, for the United States -- but it is clear that if B'nai B'rith has its way the Thought Police will be a fact of life here in the near future, and racism will be a crime -- not Jewish racism (also known as Zionism), of course, or Black racism, just racism of the White variety. Mr. Fein and his compatriots in the ADL are counting on having patriotic Americans disarmed by that time, so that they will be powerless to resist those designated by the government to enforce the laws against "thought crime." Be that as it may, Fein and Company should be aware that there still will be a few White Americans, with or without assault rifles, willing to die for their freedom -- but they don't intend to be the only ones to die. Got that, Jew boy?

ADL/AOL blocking software

top of page AOL has 10 million subscribers. What ADL wants is to have AOL include software set to block the ADL list, knowing that most neophytes will never know they are blocked or figure out how to unblock access. Thus the key issue is whether ADL can reach a deal with AOL blocking right wing sites as the default option. This is just one more example of how ADL gains control of the media.

Web sees hate sites spread

top of page As alarm rises, however, free-speech activists worry about proposed cures

BY MICHAEL FLETCHER

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - If a contestant misses a word while playing the online version of the game hangman on a Ku Klux Klan Web site, he gets to hang "Leroy," an African American figure. After the lynching, the computer screams: "You win!"

Another site on the World Wide Web promotes the fictional notion that the Holocaust never occurred. "Did six million die?" it asks.

Still another Web site proclaims that Jews are "the anti-Christ," the result of a union between Eve and Satan. Another resurrects the ridiculous tale, popular in 19th century Europe, that Jews use the blood of Christian children as an ingredient in matzo.

Those are a small part a fast growing phenomenon cited in a new Anti-Defamation League report on the use of the Internet by racist and other hate groups to spread their messages and recruit supporters.

The ADL says there are 250 hate sites on the World Wide Web, a figure that has more than doubled in the past year.

While racist and separatist groups have long distributed their propaganda using everything from fliers and newspapers to radio shows and public access cable, the ADL says the Internet represents a more ominous threat because of its revolutionary low cost and global reach.

"Shrewd bigots of all kinds are rushing to use the enormous power of this new communications medium, and we must match and surpass them," said Abraham Foxman, the ADL's national director. "We must continue to expose them, to hold them up to public scrutiny and to counter their messages of hate."

The ADL says children are especially vulnerable to these materials because they are more likely to accept them as fact.

How to combat hate on the Internet is a problem the ADL is struggling to solve. Most speech on the Internet is protected by the First Amendment, putting it out of reach of lawmakers. Also, many Internet access providers are reluctant to censor materials voluntarily, for fear of the unending demands that would no doubt surface.

"We have people who say 'Tom Sawyer' and 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' ought not be in the library," said Dennis Van Roekel, a National Education Association official who spoke at an ADL panel Tuesday on hate on the Internet.

ADL is working with America Online to develop software that would allow people to filter out hate sites.

"There is nothing wrong with brand-name filtering software," said Christian Wolf, a lawyer working with ADL to monitor objectionable material on the Internet. "If you don't like ADL's view of the world, you don't have to use our software."

The idea of software filters does not sit well with free-speech advocates. Barry Steinhardt, associate director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said any type of censorship is something the ACLU will watch closely.

"We of course have always believed that the best response to bad speech is more speech," he said. "We applaud the ADL for bringing to light what they view as hate speech and for responding to it.... (But) we are waiting to see precisely how the ADL software is to work and what their alliance with America Online will be." top of page


A Proposed Outline of JEWISH SUPREMACY

top of page In the outline below, please note the role of Jews in fostering excessive immigration into America.

The world and national political situations make little sense unless the motive of Jewish Supremacy is considered. Once the possibility of this motive is accepted, then the pieces of the puzzle fit rapidly into place, as you can see in the outline below.

Of greatest concern is that Jewish Supremacy poses a grave threat to the existence of the White race. Coupled with the demise of Whites is the collapse and end of Western Civilization and the end of all science.

Lastly, you will not find a discussion of Jewish Supremacy on the TV or the radio, because, of course, Jews control all of America's mass media: TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, and movies. Surely you can see that there is no possible way that the disproportionate involvement of Jews in each and every item in the outline below can be mere coincidence.

Here's the outline:

The ADL: The drive to outlaw free speech and thought NATIONAL VANGUARD Magazine top of page Question: What does the current media campaign to outlaw the private ownership of semiautomatic weapons by U.S. citizens have to do with the rapidly growing corpus of legislation dealing with "hate crimes"?

Answer: Success of the first is necessary to insure compliance with the second, and both are the creatures of a quasi-governmental secret-police agency of whose existence most Americans are unaware.

There is underway in America a vast, well-oiled, heavily financed campaign to limit sharply the rights of Americans under the First Amendment to their Constitution and to eliminate altogether their rights under the Second Amendment. It already has scored notable successes in rolling back the most basic American freedoms. It is gearing up now for a drive to achieve total victory in this decade.

The principal instrument in this campaign is a secret-police agency more sinister, more cunning, and infinitely more malevolent than the Soviet Committee for State Security -- the KGB -- ever was. Its initials are ADL.Those initials stand for Anti-Defamation League, an innocuous-sounding name wholly out of keeping with the character of the organization.

To understand its significance we must look into its origins. The ADL is the action arm of B'nai B'rith, the international Jewish secret society, whose Hebrew name means in English "Sons of the Covenant." The "covenant" referred to is the one supposedly entered into between the ancient Hebrews and their tribal deity Yahweh more than 3,000 years ago.

Its terms are spelled out in Deuteronomy, the fifth book of Moses. The Jews pledged their allegiance to Yahweh in return for his promise to take them as his "chosen people" and to give them dominion over all the lands and the other peoples of the earth: "Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours." (Deut. 11: 24) B'nai B'rith sees as its task the taking of all necessary measures for this promise to be fulfilled.

The ADL itself was organized in the United States as a subdivision of B'nai B'rith in 1913, and its ostensible purpose was to counter the "defamation" of Jews, whose public image was even worse then than now. The ADL went about its work in characteristically heavy-handed fashion, bullying and intimidating those who said or published anything the organization considered incompatible with Jewish interests, and lobbying legislators and other public officials to obtain legislation or rulings which would advance Jewish aims. If a prominent businessman, educator, or politician made a public statement the Jews did not like, the ADL would attempt to persuade him to retract it, hinting at economic or political reprisals if he refused. If intimidation failed, the ADL often would turn to defamation, feeding derogatory statements about the target to newspapers under Jewish control or friendly to Jewish interests until he was thoroughly discredited in the eyes of the public.

Typical of ADL efforts in the period prior to the Second World War was its attempt to ban a book, Conquest of a Continent, by Madison Grant, the noted naturalist and president of the New York Zoological Society. The book was published in 1933 by Charles Scribner's Sons and bore an enthusiastic introduction by Professor Henry Fairfield Osborn, the most prominent American paleontologist of his day. In the book Grant outlined the racial history of North America and argued for the reform of immigration laws in order to keep America primarily Northern European in its racial composition.

Jews are hardly mentioned in the book, and in no way can it be considered a "defamation" of them. Jewish policy then as now, however, was to change the European racial character of the United States by cutting off the flow of immigrants (other than Jews) from Europe and increasing the flow from the non-White world.

Consequently the ADL mounted a campaign with publishers, asking them not to review the book or mention it in any way in their own publications, and with booksellers, asking them not to handle the book. A form letter dated December 13, 1933, mailed from the national headquarters of the ADL (then in Chicago), and signed by the then-director of the organization, Richard E. Gutstadt, notified publishers that Grant's book "is extremely antagonistic to Jewish interests" and added: "We are interested in stifling the sale of this book."

Grant's book is only one of many which received the same attention from the ADL. As time passed the organization's censorship activity became more sophisticated and more effective. Defamation of offending authors, speakers, or public officials became a more often used weapon. In line with this defamation activity the ADL's undercover investigative capabilities were greatly expanded. A network of unpaid Jewish agents all across the country reported to ADL headquarters, where dossiers were built up on tens of thousands of American citizens. Information from these dossiers, which might contain everything from basic biographical and employment data to rumors about marital difficulties or drinking problems, was used to fabricate defamatory news releases on anyone the ADL wanted to discredit.

By the early 1940s the ADL had strengthened its position as an information source for the news media -- the result in part of the increased number of Jews in controlling positions in the media. It also had established informal relationships with a number of local, state, and Federal police departments. It often was the case that when the Federal Bureau of Investigation was interested in the affairs of a person involved in patriotic or "right wing" activity, the ADL already would have a dossier on him as someone actually or potentially hostile to Jewish interests and would happily share the dossier with the FBI. Sometimes the ADL would initiate the contact: if its informants had provided information to headquarters suggesting that an alleged "anti-Semite" might not have paid enough income tax or might have an unregistered firearm hidden in his attic, a tip would be given to the appropriate police agency.

In the past half-century the ADL's links with the media and with law-enforcement agencies have grown enormously. Today virtually all the controlled news media routinely print anything given to them by the ADL, as if it had come over the Associated Press wire, and they routinely go to the ADL for commentary whenever any news story is being prepared on a person known to oppose Jewish policies.

Likewise, the ADL has become the standard source to which government investigative agencies turn whenever their target is such a person. In the latter case the flow of information goes in both directions: not only does the ADL have the opportunity to peek into the government's confidential investigative files, but its agents are even invited to accompany the FBI when raids or arrests are being made on a target of interest to it.

The biggest development for the ADL in the postwar period came as a result of the Jews' land-grab in the Middle East and the formation of the state of Israel. The coordinating center for B'nai B'rith's activities moved from New York to Jerusalem. Investigating, defaming, and intimidating Americans who did not agree with the Israel-first foreign policy of the U.S. government became one of the ADL's chief concerns. Patriots who protested Washington's failure to take reprisals in 1967 when the Israelis deliberately rocketed, strafed, and torpedoed the USS Liberty, killing 34 Americans and wounding 171 others, were denounced as "anti-Semites" by the ADL. In 1974, when NATIONAL VANGUARD editor William Pierce sued U.S. Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger in an effort to halt the flow of U.S. weapons and military supplies to Israel, the ADL jumped into the suit on the side of the government as an amicus curiae.

As early as 1971, in sworn testimony in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, a top B'nai B'rith official, Saul Joftes, formerly director general of the B'nai B'rith's Office of International Affairs, admitted that B'nai B'rith "engages in international politics and more often than not does the bidding of the government of Israel. Its leaders make frequent trips to Israel for indoctrination and instructions." The issue at stake in the court case was whether or not B'nai B'rith's U.S. affiliate -- and the ADL -- should be prosecuted for failing to register as agents of a foreign power under the U.S. Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.

The fix was in, however; by the 1970s the ADL and B'nai B'rith had become "untouchables." Not only did they escape prosecution, they continued to operate as tax-exempt "religious and charitable" organizations.

Silencing and discrediting Americans who disapproved of U.S. taxpayers' money being used to support Israel's wars of expansion in the Middle East was not the only ADL activity in the postwar period. The organization worked hard and effectively to advance other Jewish goals: the opponents of increased non-White immigration were attacked, aid was given to the pulling down of the barriers against racial mixing, new restrictions on the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms were supported. The ADL played a significant role in every facet of B'nai B'rith's program to demoralize, dilute, disorganize, and disarm White Americans -- all in the name of the fight against "bigotry."

When, during the madness of the 1960s, the Jews finally succeeded in pushing through a new immigration law designed to bring more non-Whites into the United States, the ADL crowed about its success. The November 1965 issue of the ADL Bulletin, the group's internal publication, carried an article by the director of the ADL's law department, Sol Rabkin, who was present at the signing of the new law by President Lyndon Johnson. (Also present at the signing was Benjamin R. Epstein, then the national director of the ADL.) Under the heading "The restrictive national origins quota system is finally abolished -- after a forty year fight," Rabkin boasted: "The Anti-Defamation League is proud of the educational role it played in helping to bring this about."

The same issue of the ADL Bulletin had a notice of the appointment of the director of the ADL's Washington office, Herman Edelsberg, to the government post of executive director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where he could work more effectively to force the racial mixing of employees in shops and offices all across America. In this regard it is interesting to note that the ADL actually has two "equal opportunity" programs. One -- that headed by Mr. Edelsberg in 1965 and by others since then -- is to give Blacks and other minorities precedence over Whites in hiring and promotion for blue-collar and clerical employment. The other is to oppose Black demands for precedence in admissions to law schools and medical schools, and for hiring and promotion in certain professional occupations where Jews are heavily over-represented.

By the mid-1970s B'nai B'rith had had very substantial success in virtually every phase of its campaign to undermine White society in America. It still was moving aggressively on a dozen fronts: introducing resolutions to require "Holocaust" indoctrination for Gentile children in the public schools; demanding the rewriting of school textbooks and the reworking of school curricula to make them appropriately "multi-cultural" and eliminate what the ADL complained was the "principally white, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon view of America" presented by older texts and curricula; pushing Christian churches, both Protestant and Catholic, to make even further changes in their doctrines, so that their teachings about Jews would consist of nothing but the most fulsome praise; lobbying the government to punish American companies refusing to trade with Israel; asking for more restrictive anti-gun laws; etc.

These ongoing programs were only a part of the ADL's activity, however. The late 1970s saw a slowing of the frantic social change which had kept America in turmoil for nearly two decades. Much of that turmoil had been planned and instigated by B'nai B'rith. Even before the beginning of the 1980s and the relative stasis of the Reagan era, B'nai B'rith was planning new programs to head off any White backlash which might undo the changes it had wrought in American society. A new emphasis on secret-police activity characterized these programs.

At an ADL banquet in Palm Beach, Florida, early in 1975, as reported in the March 1975 issue of the ADL Bulletin, ADL Chairman Seymour Graubard boasted that the "ADL, to the limits of its financial ability, is expanding its intelligence operation . . ."

The building of dossiers on the opponents and potential opponents of the Jews' plan for America was no longer enough, however. During times of economic prosperity the old tactics of defamation and intimidation might be sufficient to keep the goyim in line, but a severe and prolonged economic decline could stiffen the spines of White Americans to the point where they no longer would be frightened into silence by the ADL's power of the smear. It became prudent, in the view of the leaders of B'nai B'rith, to enlist the police powers of government in order to silence and disarm their critics before any substantial backlash developed. To this end the ADL launched a new legislative lobbying campaign of ominous import.

The ADL's lawyers drew up a series of "model statutes" to be introduced by the organization's agents into the Congress and state legislatures. Some of these ADL-designed statutes are aimed at a more rapid phasing-out of citizens' rights to keep and bear arms. The ADL always has been a leading advocate of gun control -- much more so than the public has realized, because often while other gun-control organizations are out front holding press conferences and making headlines, it is the ADL pulling the strings for them behind the scenes. Beginning in the 1980s, however, there was a new urgency to the organization's efforts. The rationale used by the ADL now is that new, sweeping anti-gun laws are needed to protect law-abiding citizens from "right-wing terrorism." The ADL Bulletin has warned that "arms and stores of ammunition are being collected in uncounted numbers, and extremists have made clear that they are ready to use them." To back up this claim that armed White "extremists" are a growing menace the ADL has fed a steady stream of alarmist reports to the controlled news media. An excellent illustration of the way in which the ADL has carried on its anti-gun campaign is provided by its "model anti-paramilitary training statute," designed to prevent White patriots from acquiring or providing instruction in the martial arts.

The organization unveiled this model statute in 1980. By November 1981 the ADL Bulletin was able to boast that ADL agents had succeeded in having bills based on the statute enacted into law by the legislatures of California, Connecticut, and North Carolina. By early 1987 the number of states which had knuckled under to ADL pressure had grown to 14. The ADL Bulletin for March 1987 reported on its success in having one major newspaper serve as an ADL mouthpiece in this regard: "In the Atlanta Constitution, ADL's model anti-paramilitary training statute won editorial words of praise while the newspaper suggested that Georgia should pass such a law.

The article reported that ADL has spotted secret camps from Alabama to California and from Connecticut to Texas which have "a mix of vitriol and violence (that) poses a danger to all peace-loving Americans but particularly to minorities. There ought to be a law against paramilitary camps of this kind -- and in 14 states there is," said the editorial.<

The piece went on to praise the fact that while holding pathological hatemongers at bay, the ADL model aims to satisfy such constitutional considerations as the rights of free speech and free association. "The ADL's steamroller had picked up considerable speed by 1987, and just three months later the June 1987 issue of the ADL Bulletin bragged: "Now there are 18. The number of states adopting anti-paramilitary training statutes based on ADL's model legislation has reached 18 with Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, and Idaho enacting such laws in recent months."

In a letter to Howard Ross, director of ADL's Western Pennsylvania-West Virginia Regional Office, West Virginia's Governor Arch A. Moore, Jr., expressed his appreciation for the League's cooperation in moving the legislation to passage.

"The ADL also worked diligently to subvert the law-enforcement establishment and to put as many individual law-enforcement officers into its pockets as possible. For the chiefs of big-city police departments, expense-paid "fact finding" trips to Israel could be arranged. For others there were ADL-sponsored "training seminars," where politically ambitious police officials could be told of the advantages to be had by directing more of their energies and resources to the repression of "White extremists."

For example, the October 1987 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "Some 200 law-enforcement officers ranging from FBI agents to chiefs of police, sheriffs, and attorneys general in the 13 Western states from California to Wyoming attended a special seminar on combatting terrorism, arranged by Betsy Rosenthal, ADL's Western Civil Rights area director, and Harvey B. Schechter, Western States area director.

The Los Angeles Police Academy was the scene of the all-day session. The keynote speakers were Arieh Ivtsan, Israel's Ambassador to Liberia and immediate past commissioner of the Israeli National Police Force, and Irwin Suall, director of ADL's Civil Rights Division Fact Finding Department.

Packets distributed to the attendees included ADL's reports on "Extremism Targets the Prisons" and "Propaganda of the Deed," the League's Security Handbook and a list of recent publications on extremism and extremist groups with an ADL-prepared synopsis. "By sponsoring such seminars the ADL has reinforced its image as a quasi-governmental agency, to which genuine law-enforcement agencies are justified in turning for advice and information. Perhaps most important, policemen and police agencies accustomed to thinking of their responsibility as combatting drug dealers, robbers, rapists, burglars, automobile thieves, murderers, and the like are informed that there is a new type of criminal about which they should be even more concerned: the "extremist."

The ADL, of course, defines the term for them and tells them who fits the definition.

Despite the ADL's pretense of concern for "Constitutional considerations," its model anti-paramilitary training law, in fact, totally disregards the rights of free speech and free association. It prohibits certain types of speech, if that speech is involved in training or instruction in the martial arts, and it prohibits association for the purpose of hearing such speech. And the ADL campaign to push its model law through all of the state legislatures is based on fraud, deceit, and political corruption. The way it worked in West Virginia provides a good illustration. There has not been any paramilitary training in that state -- at least, not within the memory of any news reporters or law-enforcement people there spoken to by this writer: no reason, in other words, for even the most timid of West Virginia's minority citizens (barely two percent of the state's population) to feel threatened by paramilitary activity -- and so not a very good prospect for the ADL's anti-paramilitary training law. Then, in mid-1985, William Pierce, editor of this magazine and author (using his nom de plume Andrew Macdonald) of The Turner Diaries, a novel about urban guerrilla warfare and White revolution, left his home of 18 years in the Washington, D.C., area and resettled himself on a mountainside in a remote, wilderness area of West Virginia, the better to commune with his God and write the words which need to be written about this troubled era. That was all the ADL needed to launch its campaign in the state. The only newspaper printed in West Virginia which is circulated statewide is the Charleston Gazette, and it is entirely at the disposal of the ADL. Early in 1986 it carried the first of a series of ADL-sponsored scare stories about Dr. Pierce's move to the state. He had not come to West Virginia to meditate and to write, the stories claimed, but to build a terrorist training camp. The 360 acres of forested mountain land he had bought were regularly referred to as "a compound." It was surrounded by an electrified fence patrolled by armed men. One of the buildings on the land was located directly over a "large complex of limestone caverns reported to be heavily stocked with weapons." It was believed that missile silos were being dug into the mountainside. Supporting these alarmist stories was the local sheriff, who happily provided newsmen with confirmation about the electrified fence, the weapons-filled caves, and the armed men. The "compound," he asserted, was adjacent to one of the largest wilderness areas in the eastern United States, and he was quite worried about any run-in with Dr. Pierce or his associates which might involve "gunplay."

The ADL then trotted the sheriff over to the state legislature in Charleston to tell the same story to the state's lawmakers. West Virginia politics is probably not much more corrupt than that of other states, such as Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. But that's bad enough, and the ADL was able to enlist the state's attorney general, Charlie Brown, and its governor, Arch Moore, as well as the aforementioned sheriff, in its campaign to protect the citizens of West Virginia from Dr. Pierce and his terrorist training camp. The attorney general spoke at meetings and seminars organized by the ADL to alert the public to the danger. And as usual the Jewish group rounded up a number of non-Jewish groups to front for it: the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the West Virginia Education Association, a board of Presbyterian preachers, the Rainbow Coalition, and several others. The ADL named its collection of front groups "Citizens for Passage of an Unlawful Paramilitary Training Act" and, operating it like a ventriloquist's dummy, called for the enactment of its model statute in the name of "the citizens of West Virginia."

There was, of course, not a shred of truth in the stories about electrified fences, weapons-filled caves, missile silos, or training camps of any sort, terrorist or otherwise. But the news media being what they are, and politics being what it is, there were no news stories to contradict those of the Charleston Gazette, and no member of the state legislature saw fit to investigate the matter himself, even to the extent of taking a personal look at the alleged terrorist training camp or giving Dr. Pierce a telephone call to ask a few questions. The ADL's word on the matter was accepted, and the ADL's bill was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor.

Sneaking laws against paramilitary training through state legislatures is only one facet of the ADL's effort to disarm America's citizens, but it is an important facet because it reveals the political motive behind the ADL's anti-gun drive. The ADL is not concerned about drug addicts with "Saturday night specials," but it is very much concerned about armed patriots who might not approve of the Jewish plan for America. The organization has been active recently in fanning the hysteria over "assault" rifles and in instigating the passage of laws at the state and local levels to prohibit their ownership.

Even more dangerous than the ADL's anti-gun and anti-paramilitary activities, however, is its campaign to establish a new category of crime: so-called "hate crime." Defined roughly, it is any act or speech motivated by hostile feelings based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. Thus, if you are a White man, and you punch a Black man in the nose because you do not like Blacks as a general rule, it is not simply an assault; it is a "hate crime," and if you are convicted of it in a jurisdiction where the ADL has succeeded in having its model "ethnic intimidation" bill enacted into law, you will be sent to prison for three times as long as if you'd punched your mother-in-law instead (assuming she's White).

A "hate crime" also occurs if you are a White person who is generally well disposed toward Blacks, but you become engaged in a shouting match with one of them -- perhaps a dispute over a parking space -- and in the heat of the fray call him a "Black bastard." That, you see, is "ethnic intimidation," even if no blows are exchanged, and the ADL would like to send you to the state penitentiary for five years for it. You also commit a "hate crime" if you shout "nigger!" at a Black driver who cuts you off on the highway.

The ADL has been promoting "hate crime" laws for more than a decade. The January 1981 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "A joint New York State/ADL Committee on Public Policy has endorsed legislation. . . which would make graffitti and harassment based on religion, ethnicity, and race an offense under Civil Rights statutes [emphasis added]. The New Jersey regional office [of the ADL] is working with both the State Police and the County Prosecutor's Association. At ADL's initiative an Ethnic Terrorism Bill, which would change the act of anti-Semitic or racial vandalism from a misdemeanor to a third-degree crime has been introduced in the New Jersey Legislature."Less than a year later, in November 1981, the ADL Bulletin was able to boast: "Gov. Brendan Byrne of New Jersey signed into law an ethnic terrorism bill that makes racial or religious vandalism a crime punishable by three to five years in prison and a fine of up to $7,500.

ADL's regional board called for such legislation in 1979. . . and ADL was in the forefront of the two-year effort to win passage of the bill. "Much of the early ADL propaganda in favor of "hate crime" legislation attempted to cloak the ADL's true aim behind a pretended concern for protecting places of worship from "religious vandalism." Thus the February 1982 issue of the ADL Bulletin reported: "ADL has developed a model religious vandalism law to provide those states that do not have such legislation with a single, comprehensive, constitutionally sound approach to this problem.

The model statute's first and second sections create penalties for vandalism against houses of worship, cemeteries, schools and community centers, and also for committing certain crimes "by reason of the race, color, religion or national origin of another person" [emphasis added]."

A year later, in February 1983, the ADL Bulletin was able to claim substantial progress at the state level: "Mr. Perlmutter [then the ADL's national director] expressed the hope that other states would follow the lead of the 12 thus far -- Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington -- which have enacted laws imposing stiffer penalties for persons convicted of religious or racial vandalism or other acts motivated by bigotry [emphasis added]."

At that time the ADL, however, was still far short of its ultimate legislative goal: a Federal law prohibiting any expression of hostility toward, or any criticism of, Jews or other non-Whites by Whites. In the mid-1980s it shifted the emphasis of its campaign from the state to the national level. Its strategy was two-pronged: first, to condition legislators and publicists and then the general public to accept the concept of "hate crime" as a distinct, new category of crime; and second, to persuade the American people that a new body of legislation is needed to protect them from such crime -- needed so urgently, in fact, that they should be willing to sacrifice the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution in order to be safe from a dangerous new breed of "hate criminals."

To implement the first prong of that strategy the ADL formulated another of its "model statutes": a hate-crimes statistics reporting statute. Lobbying intensely, the ADL used its media outlets to publicize its own statistics, which not surprisingly showed a sharp rise in "hate crimes" throughout the latter half of the decade. A Federal law was needed, the ADL claimed, to track such crime. In January 1990 the organization reported that "hate crimes" had reached an all-time high during 1989. Leading the list were 1,432 "anti-Semitic incidents" reported by its agents around the country, ranging from swastikas daubed on driveways to arson. In April 1990 the Congress passed, and President Bush signed, the desired law. The new Hate Crimes Statistics Act requires the Justice Department to gather the statistics that the ADL formerly had gathered. All incidents in which hatred or prejudice based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation is alleged to be a motive will henceforth be subject to special Federal scrutiny and record keeping. If a homosexual in Norfolk, Virginia, makes a pass at a sailor and has his teeth knocked out for his trouble, the Justice Department in Washington wants to know all about it. If a Vietnamese "refugee" in Los Angeles finds a "gooks go home" message chalked on the windshield of his car, the FBI will investigate. It's the law now.

One might wonder why the ADL went to so much trouble to persuade the Federal government to duplicate one of the Jewish group's functions. The reason, of course, is not that more crime statistics are needed by anyone, least of all by the ADL; it is that now the Federal government has officially recognized the ADL's definition of a new category of crime. Now it will be the government, not just some Jewish group with a strange name, investigating and publicizing every hostile word or act based on race, religion, or sexual orientation. That is the first step toward persuading the Congress to enact, and the public to accept, new laws.

There will continue to be a screen of words -- "terrorism," "religious vandalism," and "hate, hate, hate" -- thrown up to disguise the true goals of those pushing for Federal "hate crime" legislation. As a result of this obfuscation the impression in many minds will be that the purpose of such legislation is merely to penalize those who paint swastikas on Jewish tombstones or set fire to synagogues. Who could object to a law against that? What the ADL really has in mind is revealed by an incident which occurred at the beginning of this year in West Milford, New Jersey. A young White man, 22-year-old Richard E. Lindstrom, stuck a three-inch by five-inch, orange-and-black sticker on a traffic sign and was arrested by a policeman who saw him do it. The message on the sticker was: "Earth's most endangered species: the White race. Help preserve it. Write or call National Alliance, ..." Ordinarily one would expect someone in Mr. Lindstrom's position to receive a citation for littering. In 1981, however, the ADL had succeeded in persuading the legislators of New Jersey to enact a so-called "Ethnic Terrorism Law," and he was charged under that law. He was facing as much as five years in prison and a fine of $7,500 for posting a sticker asking the public to help preserve the White race.

Anyone who understands the B'nai B'rith mentality can see the logic in that. To suggest that the White race (and, of course, one understands that "White" means European, or Aryan, excluding Semites) ought to be preserved is to challenge the Yahweh-given right of the Sons of the Covenant to rule the earth and its peoples as they see fit. That's clearly anti-Semitic. That stabs terror into the heart of every righteous Holocaust survivor. Therefore, Mr. Lindstrom committed an act of "ethnic terrorism" and ought to be put away for good.

Under the circumstances, however, to have tried him on an "ethnic terrorism" charge at this time would have been premature and might even have jeopardized the ADL's campaign for a comprehensive Federal "hate crime" law. There were vague mutterings from the American Civil Liberties Union, and it was even conceivable that some of the more loosely controlled elements in the news media might publicize the case and cause a White backlash around the country. Cooler heads in the local ADL office eventually prevailed, and the charge against Mr. Lindstrom was reduced to one of littering. Five years from now they might be able to make the "ethnic terrorism" charge stick, but not in 1990.

To ensure that they not only will have the Federal laws in place they are seeking by the end of this decade, but also will be able to make them stick, the ADL and other Jewish groups are coordinating their efforts. For the past few years they have been using the controlled entertainment media in an especially insidious way to condition the American people to accept passively the yoke planned for them. They have created a new film genre -- the "White terrorist" film -- to persuade the public that there is a growing danger from armed White "haters."

In 1987 we were hit with Into the Homeland, a film which attempts to convince East Coast city dwellers that the rural heartland of the Midwest is on the point of being taken over by heavily armed Christian Fundamentalists who not only don't like non-Whites, but who deal murderously with anyone of any hue who gets in their way. Only viewers with sharp eyes will catch the acknowledgement to the ADL among the credits at the end of the film. The film uses the scenario developed in a special report issued by the ADL in 1986, "The American Farmer and the Extremists."

In 1988 we were treated to a number of other films of the same ilk, the three most notable of them being Betrayed, Skinheads -- the Second Coming of Hate, and Talk Radio. The first of this trio, which was the most widely seen, portrays the White "haters" of the rural Midwest as not only heavily armed but also well organized and well financed, with top-level political connections in Washington. Their favorite Saturday-night pastime is to kidnap a Black from a nearby town, turn him loose in the woods, and then hunt him down and kill him.

Skinheads -- the Second Coming of Hate is the first in a series of Jewish films portraying working-class urban White youths who affect the skinhead dress and tonsure as viciously depraved, murderous thugs who hate not only Blacks and Jews but the whole world. The guidelines for these films are set in several ADL publications, most notably "`Shaved for Battle': Skinheads Target America's Youth" (1987) and "Young and Violent: The Growing Menace of America's Neo-Nazi Skinheads" (1988).

Talk Radio, loosely based on the 1984 assassination of Jewish radio host Alan Berg in Denver, allegedly by White revolutionaries, advances the thesis that people who haven't wholeheartedly embraced the brave, new pluralistic world of racial mixing, homosexuality, and feminism promoted by the ADL -- i.e., White racists -- are hair-trigger psychotics who may explode with murderous fury at the least provocation. It is the only one of the 1988 films which is even remotely credible to a sophisticated viewer. Most American television and cinema viewers are anything but sophisticated, unfortunately. The Jews already have succeeded in convincing many of them that certain completely legal acts or patterns of behavior are illegal. After seeing so many television episodes in which a hateful Ku Klux Klansman sneaks around like a criminal and is treated like a criminal by the other actors, the viewer can hardly be blamed for having the confused notion that there's something inherently illegal about being a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

In 1989, among many others, we had Dead Bang and So Proudly We Hail, two anti-skinhead films which distort the skinhead life-style into something far beyond the bounds of reality. Skinheads are depicted as the violence-prone storm troopers of a huge, sophisticated, highly organized neo-Nazi network. The latter of these films was a made-for-TV film written and directed by Lionel Chetwynd of the American Jewish Committee. In a booklet published by the Jewish group in conjunction with the broadcast of the film over CBS-affiliated stations, Skinheads: Who They Are & What to Do When They Come to Town, Chetwynd writes:

""So Proudly We Hail" is my way of speaking out. Through a fictionalized account based on real events, the film demonstrates how hate can be cultivated and grown into ideology. "

One can only wonder what "real events" Chetwynd had in mind. The film shows a neo-Nazi organization developed to a level that real neo-Nazis can only dream about. And it drags out old, long-discredited Jewish canards about lampshades made from the skin of flayed Jewish concentration-camp victims and the like. The bulk of the American Jewish Committee's booklet shows as little regard for the truth as the film itself, consisting mainly of absurdly exaggerated claims of the menace to ordinary citizens from skinheads and exhortations to support various Jewish "model statutes" on "hate crimes" and outlawing semiautomatic weapons.

In 1990, the "White terrorist" genre is expanding to include segments of several popular cops-and-robbers television series, as well as full-length films. And the dual purpose remains: to both repulse and frighten the average American. Racially conscious White men and women must be perceived by the conforming television viewer as both hateful and dangerous.

Within the next few years the ADL hopes to have enforceable Federal "hate crime" legislation in place which, in the name of preventing "religious vandalism" or "ethnic intimidation," will make it illegal to print, possess, sell, or post a sticker of the sort Richard Lindstrom put on a traffic sign in West Milford, New Jersey, earlier this year. Not just stickers, but also books, pamphlets, leaflets -- or any public utterance -- offensive to a racial or religious minority or to homosexuals will be outlawed. Whether or not a person was motivated by a dislike for Blacks, Jews, homosexuals, or some other officially protected minority when he took some action against one of them will determine his punishment, and anything that he has said or written in the past may be used to infer what his motivation was. "Hate crime" will have become "thought crime."

Lest there be any doubt that this is what the Jews actually are aiming for, consider the following comments by Jewish lawyer Bruce Fein, who writes on legal topics for a number of publications. The comments come from a feature article by him published in the May 1, 1990, edition of the Washington Times, and the article in turn is based on his remarks at an Oxford-Northwestern Debate in Washington the preceding month:

"Should speech intended to ignite religious or racial animosity be prohibited? Let the answer speak from the weeping cemeteries around the world overflowing with the victims of racial and religious prejudice. ...What is the paramount purpose of speech in a civilized society? It is to trigger contemplation, reason and tolerance for competing ideas as the moving force for private and political action. ...What is the purpose of racially or religiously bigoted speech? It is to arouse unthinking hatred, violence and intolerance in the audience... In sum, the invectives of the racial or religious bigot are no more free speech than is [sic] the vulgar pornographic ululations of Annie Sprinkle a cousin of the Bolshoi Ballet. If the law supposes otherwise, as Mr. Bumble observed, "the law is a ass, a idiot." If racially or religiously bigoted speech were innocuous, then it might be ignored by governments. But it is not.

The ugliest marks in the history of the United States have stemmed from the incitements to racial prejudice practiced by Theodore Bilbo, Orville Faubus, the Ku Klux Klan, and the producers of "The Birth of a Nation." Diatribes of these types create an explosive social nitroglycerine waiting for an epithet or racial incident to spark violence. ...It is said that if racially or religiously bigoted speech is squelched, there will be no stopping point to prevention of genuine free speech. Nonsense! The progress of civilization has been the progress of making refinements and differentiations in the law. Prohibitions on racially or religiously derogatory speech have existed in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, West Germany, and elsewhere without undermining democracy, political dissent or debate. ...Prohibiting racially and religiously bigoted speech is praiseworthy because it seeks to elevate, not to degrade, because it draws from human experience, not from woolly dogmas or academic slogans, because it salutes reason as the backbone of freedom and tolerance. Is that clear enough?"

Those "woolly dogmas" and "academic slogans" this smart-mouth Jew boy dismisses with a sneer are the things that the founders of this nation were prepared to defend with their lives, things that men of our race have given their lives for often in the past. He and his fellow Jews evidently believe, however, that the present generation of Americans have had their minds and their spines sufficiently softened by 40 years of Jewish propaganda so that they won't even look up from their television screens when our freedom to speak our minds is taken away from us and Jewish "reason" becomes the law of the land.

He is correct, of course, in indicating that speech is restricted in many other countries -- although hardly without undermining dissent or debate. In Canada, Great Britain, West Germany, France, and Sweden, to mention just a few places, the Jews have succeeded in making it a criminal offense to question their perennially profitable "Holocaust" claims, for example. The German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zündel, whose case has been discussed several times in these pages, has been convicted and sentenced in Canada for that very "hate crime." In Sweden last December a radio broadcaster was sentenced to prison and the license of his station was revoked because he criticized Israeli actions against Palestinians in a way that Jews considered derogatory.

George Orwell missed the date by a few years -- at least, for the United States -- but it is clear that if B'nai B'rith has its way the Thought Police will be a fact of life here in the near future, and racism will be a crime -- not Jewish racism (also known as Zionism), of course, or Black racism, just racism of the White variety. Mr. Fein and his compatriots in the ADL are counting on having patriotic Americans disarmed by that time, so that they will be powerless to resist those designated by the government to enforce the laws against "thought crime." Be that as it may, Fein and Company should be aware that there still will be a few White Americans, with or without assault rifles, willing to die for their freedom -- but they don't intend to be the only ones to die. --Dr. W. Pierce, Chairman/Publisher of N.V.

"a Jewish civil rights organization" -- This is a typical New York Times flagrant lie. The ADL is NOT a civil rights organization. It is a terrorist league. Its favorite tactic is abuse, character defamation, intellectual assault, and publishing of the names of persons it wants to label with the ADL's fake term, "anti-Semitic," which is a manufactured word.

"national director of fact-finding" -- This is a nice way of saying that the ADL works much like the Communist and Nazi Bureaus of Propaganda and the Nazi SS. The ADL infiltrates other people's organizations, files reports, holds secret meetings to figure out how best to destroy persons in those organization, plants agents provocateurs, and does what it can to destroy people exercising their freedom to associate and freedom to work against the ADL's goals, most of which are left-wing--e.g. immigration, integration, development of social chaos, support for the Democratic National Committee's goals, etc.

"exposing them to the light of public opinion." -- In other words, defaming them by calling them "anti-Semitic" in publications owned by Jews such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and local Jewish newspapers. And, at times, calling up their bosses and getting them fired. Again, these are similar to the tactics of the communists in Russia whose USSR's Red Revolution was funded by Jacob Schiff in New York City, a Jew connected to the B'nai B'rith which started the ADL. Then, the Party collected information on and defamed native Russians.

"our organization's refusal to distort the facts has made it a credible source of information and analysis for the press, the public, academic researchers and law enforcement." -- Unbelievable. Nothing could be more distorted than the many articles issued by the ADL. People like Dolly Parton, who is in no way anti-Semitic, have been called anti-Semitic by the irresponsible hate spewing pens of ADL members.

"He saw the squalor that Jewish refugees were living in there. The sight spurred in him pity -- and wrath." -- Criticism of this New York Times statement: Perhaps the Jews of the ADL should show equal pity for the Palestinians who live in squalor with no home and whose homes the ADL's Jewish brothers in Israel have stolen from them and demolished around their heads.

Irwin Suall's Left-Wing Background -- But did the New York Times article point this out? Of course not.
1. Education Director of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
2. Organization Director of International Ladies Garment Workers Union, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
3. National Secretary of the Socialist Party-Social Democratic Federation, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
4. Public Relations Director of the Jewish Labor Committee, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.

NOTE--In short, Mr. Irwin Suall was kind of a commie before himself capable of being trusted by the equally kind of a commie organization called the ADL...

"His many writings included a study of partisans of the extreme right" -- This is typical communist terminology. The fascists in Spain were called "partisans" by the communist foes. In Russia, the Whites were also called "partisans". One would expect someone with all of these left-wing radical Jewish fanatical organization career credentials to use the word "partisans" as a matter of course.

"James Baldwin" -- Left-Wing Communist leaning black writer with total leftist outlook. Many of his writings reflect the goals of the Communist Party and its associated Democratic National Committee.

"they took the placards and picketed the bar for a time" -- James Baldwin was not only a homosexual but a left-wing radical fanatic with communist leanings. As a writer, he was very useful to the communist and Democratic National Committee organizations, mostly run by Jews like Mr. Irwin Suall in New York City. Placards and picketing like this were useful tools of the Communists since the turn of the century and before, and both of these friendly, left-wing, angry, communist leaners were well aware of these tactics. The New York Times does not mention this, which further disproves their "objectivity" and that of the ADL. The Jewish owned presses of the New York Times frequently leave out important information when it is damaging to their left-wing Communist and Democratic National Committee ideals and goals.

Dangerous Left Wing Radical ADL Investigator Dies
Irwin Suall, 73, Investigator for Anti-Defamation League

By ERIC PACE top of page

NEW YORK TIMES -- Irwin Suall, who for three decades headed undercover investigations of groups regarded as inimical to Jews on behalf of the Anti-Defamation League, died Monday ... in Manhattan. He was 73 and lived in Manhattan.

Suall -- pronounced SOO-ell -- joined the staff of the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights organization, in 1967 with the title of national director of fact-finding. He held that title into the 1990s and retired last year from the league's headquarters at U.N. Plaza in Manhattan. He then served for some months as a consultant to the league.

As Suall put it, the Anti-Defamation League's inquiries into extremism and extremists entailed "turning over the rocks" under which they hid and "exposing them to the light of public opinion."

In a 1993 letter to The New York Times, replying to critics' contention that the Anti-Defamation League had ignored the right-wing fringe, he and a colleague wrote that most of Suall's "life work with the Anti-Defamation League has been spent combating the racists, anti-Semites and extremists of the far right," and "our organization's refusal to distort the facts has made it a credible source of information and analysis for the press, the public, academic researchers and law enforcement."

Suall was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, grew up in Brownsville, in Brooklyn, and graduated from Samuel Tilden High School in Brooklyn.

Suall had a formative experience during a stay in Shanghai, China. He saw the squalor that Jewish refugees were living in there. The sight spurred in him pity -- and wrath.

Suall went on to study at Oxford University on a Fulbright scholarship and received a bachelor's degree in political science there in in 1950.

Then, he returned to New York and was successively, among other things, education and organization director of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, national secretary of the Socialist Party-Social Democratic Federation -- headed by Norman Thomas -- and public relations director of the Jewish Labor Committee before joining the staff of the Anti-Defamation League. [Click on this Footnote: All 3 are leftist/communist/socialist assets demonstrating the closeness of the ADL to the Communist conspiracy worldwide.]

His many writings included a study of partisans of the extreme right, "The American Ultras" (1962).

Suall liked to tell the story of what happened one evening, while he was a young man, when he and the writer James Baldwin went out drinking in Greenwich Village. One of the bars they went to refused to serve Baldwin because he was black and gay, Suall said. So the two men left the bar and made placards protesting the bar's policy. And they took the placards and picketed the bar for a time, even though there was snow on the sidewalk. top of page

Educational Footnotes--to Post-Mortem Article on ADL's Leftist Researcher, Irwin Suall -- demonstrating the use of innuendo to allow the communist background of the ADL to hide unexposed by the Jewish New York Times by not "turning over the rocks" under which these New York Jews in the ADL hid and exposing them to the light of public opinion.

"a Jewish civil rights organization" -- This is a typical New York Times flagrant lie. The ADL is NOT a civil rights organization. It is a terrorist league with many members and their descendants who were members of communist front organizations who moved on to dominate the Democratic National Committee. Its favorite tactic is abuse, character defamation, intellectual assault, and publishing of the names of persons it wants to label with the ADL's fake term, "anti-Semitic," which is a manufactured word.

"national director of fact-finding" -- This is a nice way of saying that the ADL works much like the Communist and Nazi Bureaus of Propaganda and the Nazi SS. The ADL infiltrates other people's organizations, files reports, holds secret meetings to figure out how best to destroy persons in those organization, plants agents provocateurs, and does what it can to destroy people exercising their freedom to associate and freedom to work against the ADL's goals, most of which are left-wing--e.g. immigration, integration, development of social chaos, support for the Democratic National Committee's goals, etc.

"exposing them to the light of public opinion." -- In other words, defaming them by calling them "anti-Semitic" in publications owned by Jews such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and local Jewish newspapers. And, at times, calling up their bosses and getting them fired. Again, these are similar to the tactics of the communists in Russia whose USSR's Red Revolution was funded by Jacob Schiff in New York City, a Jew connected to the B'nai B'rith which started the ADL. Then, the Party collected information on and defamed native Russians.

"our organization's refusal to distort the facts has made it a credible source of information and analysis for the press, the public, academic researchers and law enforcement." -- Unbelievable. Nothing could be more distorted than the many articles issued by the ADL. People like Dolly Parton, who is in no way anti-Semitic, have been called anti-Semitic by the irresponsible hate spewing pens of ADL members.

"He saw the squalor that Jewish refugees were living in there. The sight spurred in him pity -- and wrath." -- Criticism of this New York Times statement: Perhaps the Jews of the ADL should show equal pity for the Palestinians who live in squalor with no home and whose homes the ADL's Jewish brothers in Israel have stolen from them and demolished around their heads.

Irwin Suall's Left-Wing Background -- But did the New York Times article point this out? Of course not.
1. Education Director of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
2. Organization Director of International Ladies Garment Workers Union, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
3. National Secretary of the Socialist Party-Social Democratic Federation, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.
4. Public Relations Director of the Jewish Labor Committee, a seed-bed of communism & Democratic Party associate.

NOTE--In short, Mr. Irwin Suall was kind of a commie before himself capable of being trusted by the equally kind of a commie organization called the ADL...

"His many writings included a study of partisans of the extreme right" -- This is typical communist terminology. The fascists in Spain were called "partisans" by the communist foes. In Russia, the Whites were also called "partisans". One would expect someone with all of these left-wing radical Jewish fanatical organization career credentials to use the word "partisans" as a matter of course.

"James Baldwin" -- Left-Wing Communist leaning black writer with total leftist outlook. Many of his writings reflect the goals of the Communist Party and its associated Democratic National Committee.

"they took the placards and picketed the bar for a time" -- James Baldwin was not only a homosexual but a left-wing radical fanatic with communist leanings. As a writer, he was very useful to the communist and Democratic National Committee organizations, mostly run by Jews like Mr. Irwin Suall in New York City. Placards and picketing like this were useful tools of the Communists since the turn of the century and before, and both of these friendly, left-wing, angry, communist leaners were well aware of these tactics. The New York Times does not mention this, which further disproves their "objectivity" and that of the ADL. The Jewish owned presses of the New York Times frequently leave out important information when it is damaging to their left-wing Communist and Democratic National Committee ideals and goals.


ADL Intimidation and Defamation and Hate

Jerusalem, Palestine, Al Akhbar News Service, December 8, 1998. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which describes itself as a civil rights organization, has been in the forefront of an ongoing attempt to label legitimate American-Arab and American-Muslim charitable, political, and informational organizations as fronts for terrorism. This attempt is part of a long-standing ADL policy of discrediting any individual or organization opposed to Israel or supportive of Palestinian rights. The ADL's strong political loyalty to Israel as well as its acknowledged ties to Israel's external intelligence agency in addition to its past practices of spreading disinformation and intimidating those who have spoken out against Israeli policies should however serve as a warning about the ADL and the nature of its claims.

When the ADL was founded in 1913 it defined its mission as opposing the defamation of the Jewish people. Over the years, the organization won respect for its active support of civil rights and its opposition to segregation and white supremacist groups. However after the founding of the State of Israel and the 1967 Middle East War, the ADL significantly altered the way it defined its mission. In a 1974 ADL publication entitled "The New Anti-Semitism," then-ADL National Director Benjamin Epstein argued that any "criticism of Israel reflects insensitivity to American Jews and constitutes a form of anti-Semitism." This change in the way it defined its mission meant that the ADL would no longer be engaged in merely civil rights work but would rather take on a very strong political stance in defense of Israel. The main goal of the ADL became to counteract any criticism of Israel and to promote Israel's interests regardless of other considerations. Throughout the 1970's and 1980's, for example, the ADL was in the forefront of an effort to keep documents underscoring Israel's sinking of an American naval ship confidential. Such efforts cannot be understood in the context of the ADL's former civil rights agenda. Similarly, in November, 1994, ADL's Executive Director Abraham Foxman personally appealed to President Bill Clinton to commute the prison sentence of Jonathan Pollard, an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy who sold what the New York Times described as "suitcases full of military intelligence" to Israel. Foxman's appeal to President Clinton can only be understood in light of the ADL's new mission of promoting Israeli interests.

The fact that the ADL has become a pro-Israel interest group is, of course, not in itself problematic. The entire United States political system is based on the freedom of interest groups to compete with others in promoting their often conflicting agendas. However the ADL has overstepped the bounds of legitimacy on a number of levels. The organization has engaged in illegal domestic spying activities, has worked with foreign intelligence agencies to undermine the rights and endanger the lives of American citizens, has undertaken disinformation campaigns slandering and intimidating numerous academicians, politicians, journalists, church officials, and Arab-Americans.

ADL's transgressions were most notably exposed in January 1993 when San Francisco newspapers broke the story of ADL's extensive domestic spying network. The San Francisco Police Department discovered that under the cover of fighting anti-Semitism, the ADL had gathered and sold to intelligence agents of the Israeli and South African governments information on thousands of American individuals and groups. In addition to nearly all Arab American organizations, those whom the ADL targeted included House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ron Dellums, former Congressman Pete McCloskey, Los Angeles Times correspondent Scott Kraft, the board of directors of public television station KQED, the Rainbow Coalition, a number of labor unions, Greenpeace, as well as numerous other journalists, professors, members of Congress, and activists who the ADL suspected had "anti-Israel" leanings. The information which the San Francisco police department confiscated from the ADL offices included illegally obtained confidential police material. The manner by which the ADL obtained such information as well as the fact that they sold it to foreign governments are both felonies.

The ADL's ties to the Mossad, Israel's external intelligence agency, had been known even before the scandal broke out in 1993. During the court proceedings concerning a 1970 lawsuit against the ADL, an internal letter was disclosed in which ADL's Epstein bragged about the close intelligence relations between the ADL and Israel. Furthermore, in his 1988 autobiography, ADL general counsel Arnold Forster described the close connections between the ADL and the Mossad. The Mossad connection is especially disturbing because of the Israeli intelligence agency's long record of engaging in political assassinations of opponents of Israel throughout the world.

Like the Mossad, the ADL has not been content with just gathering information on those who have spoken out against Israel or in favor of Palestinian rights. The ADL has also actively engaged in discrediting them through disinformation campaigns which are aimed at both distorting the records and intimidating those opposed to Israel. While in the 1970's and 1980's, the ADL often falsely labeled such individuals as being connected to the PLO or in the pay of Arab Gulf states, since the 1990's, the ADL has begun labeling them as being connected to Islamic terrorist organizations. The ADL's allegations, while couched in a matter-of-fact style, nearly always falls far short of providing any real evidence. However such allegations have had far-reaching effects. After the ADL accused seven Palestinians and a Kenyan woman in California with ties to a PLO terrorist group, for example, the eight individuals were arrested and deportation proceedings were begun. When it was later discovered that no real evidence existed against the eight individuals except for the fact that they had distributed anti-Israeli magazines, the media sharply criticized the government.

One of its first salvos in the disinformation war was its 1975 report entitled "Target U.S.A.: The Arab Propaganda Offensive," in which the ADL distorted the images of nearly all mainstream Arab-American groups. The ADL followed up that report with its most controversial book of all: Pro-Arab Propaganda: Vehicles and Voices, an enemies list of 31 organizations and 34 individuals which was published in 1983 and was largely aimed at countering opposition to Israel from University professors and student organizations. The publication intentionally takes statements of those on the list out of context, accuses them of Anti-Semitism, and falsely accuses a number of academic scholars of being part of a PLO support network or of having been paid by Gulf Arab countries. The report calls upon Jewish leaders in Universities throughout the country to boycott and intimidate those appearing on the list. Those who appeared on the list later found themselves ostracized by the academic community with some losing their jobs or denied promotions. S.C. Whittaker, the former chairman of the Political Science Department at Rutgers University admitted, for example, that political reasons, rather than academic ones, prevented Dr. Eqbal Ahmad from obtaining a regular teaching appointment after his name appeared on the ADL list. Dr. Noam Chomsky, who also appeared on the list, says that since the book was published, protesters have appeared at every one of his speaking engagements and have distributed distorted ADL reports containing fabricated quotes that he was alleged to have made in an attempt to intimidate him and his listeners. On Nov. 30, 1984, the Middle East Studies Association passed a resolution protesting the "creation, storage, or dissemination of blacklists, enemy lists" or surveys that call for boycotting individuals or intimidating scholars. Similar intimidation campaigns have been waged by the ADL against reporters and journalists who have criticized Israel.

Throughout the 1980's, the ADL also accused liberal church officials, church groups, and religious organizations which called for peace and justice for all in the Middle East as being connected to the PLO. The Reverend Don Wagner and the Presbyterian Church had especially been accused by the ADL of having connections to the PLO, though no evidence was ever presented backing up such contentions. On the other hand, after a 1994 report on the religious right, the ADL was accused by religious conservatives of going after people for their political views and of taking numerous quotes of religious leaders out of context. Also on May 25, 1994, the ADL's Jerusalem office released a sensationalist story which appeared the next day in the New York Times and other newspapers which alleged that the Vatican had admitted to being responsible for the Holocaust. The Vatican later totally denied the story. The ADL's blatant misrepresentation of facts was sharply criticized.

The ADL's credibility has been severely shaken by its long record of disinformation. While the ADL has every right to continue advocating pro-Israel policies, its real agenda should be exposed and it must be made to end the illegal spying, harassment, and intimidation of political opponents. More importantly, U.S. law enforcement agencies, the media, and political circles need to see the ADL for what it is: a pro-Israel group more than ready to distort the truth to further the Israeli agenda. While in retrospect, it now seems very clear that the ADL's wild allegations against alleged PLO support networks in the 1980's were baseless, it must be remembered that at the time they were seen as credible and led many people to lose their jobs and others to be imprisoned. The ADL's current crusade against alleged Islamic terrorist networks is almost identical to its earlier one against so-called ties to the PLO. Both campaigns are based on general stereotypes and fears and are devoid of evidence and fact. To repeat such allegations without further investigating them, as some in the media have done, is unprofessional and unethical. To act upon them, as some law-makers and law-enforcement agencies have done, is dangerous and threatens the freedoms and civil liberties Americans have grown to expect.


Alleged Libel of Ed Toner by ADL's Notorious Irwin Suall 

 

Date: Mon, 27 Aug 2021 07:56:15 -0400

Dear Editor, Home News and Tribune;

Your article about the ADL giving sensitivity training to Somerville police left the casual reader with the impression the ADL is working to eliminate hatred. This is not always the case. They are used to silence criticism of bloody Israel, a secular nation.

I am now a retired TWA Captain, as well as a retired LCDR USN. During the 1970's, I flew many trips to Tel Aviv. What I saw there was just the opposite of what I read about the place in the newspapers. The media claims that Israel was "The only Democracy in the Mid-East" were shockingly wrong. Israel is as much a two-tier society today as Germany was in 1939. They just inverted the place, put the Jews on top, and the Gentiles underfoot.

This was not outwardly noticeable at first. The place was obviously Jewish, but I figured, "Naturally, it's The Jewish State". There were a few minor inconveniences but all in all, a layover in the Tel Aviv Hilton was considered a good one.

The crews were given the same rooms each trip, so I got the same housekeeper, who I assumed was a nice Jewish lady. As is the custom, I brought her a small box of Chocolates each trip. She was very thankful. On one occasion, I got talking with her. It was Saturday, and she was working. I asked her if she was violating Jewish law by working. To my surprise, she told me she was not Jewish, but an Orthodox Christian.

We spoke further about how things were for a Christian in The Jewish State. "Bad, real bad, Captain" was her reply. I questioned her further and got such a hard luck story as to be almost unbelievable, but this was a very open and honest woman. She told me of the discrimination she faced on a daily basis, the hardships of having to live in a segregated area far from work, the lower wages paid to Christians, pat-down body searches by Israeli soldiers at check points, and so on. She was in tears when she finally finished. I was very mad.

I started writing critical letters to the editor of local newspapers describing what was going on in Israel. Getting information critical of Israel, before I had access to the internet, was difficult.

Finally, I discovered titles and addresses of good sources of information on the subject. Soon, I had a compact library of material. My letters became more hard-hitting, and more difficult to rebut. Enter Mr. Suall, of the ADL. In a letter to my Chief Pilot, he complained loudly about how there was an anti-Semite flying TWA's airplanes, to Tel Aviv, of all places.

How does TWA expect it's Jewish passengers feel with a maniac like this flying them? I was hauled in to the office and asked to explain myself. I did. I told my boss I was exercising my freedom of the press, and I was not involving the company in my letters. I also pointed out that the Gentiles in Israel were Semites, whereas most of the Jews were not.

Apparently Suall became enraged that no action was taken. More letters followed in which I was described as insane, dangerous, a poor pilot, a drunk, a wife beater, a child abuser, etc. and for G-d's sake, shut this man up!. All this was nonsense, of course. I have a lovely Irish wife and 6 healthy, happy children. When asked by the boss what I had to say for myself, I called Suall a liar. I asked if there was any proof of what he said. There was none. By this time I brought the union into the picture. I was a member of the Air Line Pilots Association. It was agreed that so long as I did not mention TWA, or ALPA in my letters, it was hands off.

I wanted to sue the ADL with these letters as the basis of a libel suit. The union contract called for my jacket to be available to me, and that I was entitled to be copied on any negative material in it. There was nothing in it. It was then I discovered that there were 2 jackets, one of which was kept from me, which was in violation of the contract. I went to Queens DA Mario Merolla and told him about this, and pointed out that libel was a criminal as well as civil offense in NY (I was working out of JFK). He promptly told TWA to cease this, and hand over the other jacket. By the time I went back to the office, it had "accidentally" gone into the shredder. Too bad, but the harassment ceased, and I continued my career to get 30 years in , retiring in 1987 at the age of 56.

The ADL is a branch of B'Nai B'Rith, itself an exclusive organization, whose membership is limited to Jewish men, only.

If I were the Chief of the Somerset County Police Academy, I would be wary of the advice of this group.

Your Views, ASBURY PARK PRESS;

The appearance of Mr. Goldstein of the ADL in the continuing story of the search for the Hassidic Jews who supposedly beat a Muslim man in Lakewood brought back some unpleasant memories to me.

As a TWA Captain back in the 1970's, I had many layovers in Tel Aviv. What I saw there opened my eyes to the true nature of the Israeli's. They are anything but a "Democracy", they are the last remnant of Fascism in today's world. It's "Juden uber all" to them, and we Gentiles are discriminated against there.

I started writing letters to editors on my observations, and in no time, Mr. Irwin Suall of the Manhattan office of the ADL was writing letters to my Chief Pilot suggesting I be shut up, or TWA would face the loss of Jewish travelers.

I was brought in and asked to stop my writing, which I refused to do. It was my right of free speech, and that was that. Apparently Suall became enraged that no action was taken. More letters followed in which I was described as insane, dangerous, a poor pilot, a drunk, a wife beater, a child abuser, etc. and for G-d's sake, shut this man up!. All this was nonsense, of course. I have a lovely Irish wife and 6 healthy, happy children. When asked by the boss what I had to say for myself, I called Suall a liar. I asked if there was any proof of what he said. There was none. By this time I brought the union into the picture. I was a member of the Air Line Pilots Association. It was agreed that so long as I did not mention TWA, or ALPA in my letters, it was hands off. Management got the message.

This was clearly a case of libel, and libel is a criminal offense in NY, so I went to Mario Merolla, the Queens District Attorney, and complained that I was being libeled. The letters from the ADL stopped, but mine did not. By contract, I was entitled to copies of these letters which I wanted to use in a libel civil lawsuit against the ADL. The letters were immediately shredded.

Most readers look at the ADL as an honorable organization. I beg to differ. They are a branch of B'nai B'rith, an organization whose membership is restricted to Jewish men, and they wield an awful lot of power. Anyone who exposes the truth about Zionism is their target.

If it were not for the $90 Billion in aid to Israel over the years, the World Trade Center Towers would still be standing, and 6,000 people would be with their families this Thanksgiving Day.

It's time for some drastic changes in our foreign policy. Presently, 80% of our foreign aid goes to tiny Israel, which is home to some of the wealthiest people on Earth.
