Behind the Mask of Respectability:
The truth about the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, or ADL for short, presents itself as an organization against ethnic, racial or religious intolerance. It's very name suggests that it opposes "defamation."
In reality, the Anti-Defamation League is an organization that supports Jewish ethnic and religious supremacy, and relentlessly "defames" anyone who dares to point out its own hypocrisy. While supposedly opposing ethnic segregation and ethnic superiority, the ADL supports Israel and international Zionism which promotes not a vision of a "multi-cultural," "multi-ethnic" Israel, but of a "Jewish state." That state is openly dedicated to the advancement of the Jewish religion, culture, and even the genetic preservation of the Jewish people. This is, of course, the very opposite of the policies it proposes for our American nation.
Consider the following:
The ADL supports forced integration of schools, neighborhoods, apartment complexes, clubs, churches and communities in America.
Yet, it supports Israel which has a policy of segregated schools, neighborhoods, apartment complexes and even whole towns for Jews and Gentiles.
The ADL has been instrumental in changing America's immigration policies that will result in European Americans becoming a minority in America by the middle of this century.
Yet, the ADL supports Israel, which has a "Jews only" immigration policy. In fact, it even keeps out Palestinians who were born there and then forced out during the Zionist takeover in 1948.
The ADL has condemned European Americans, such as the administrators of Bob Jones University, who oppose racial intermarriage, Yet, the ADL supports Israel, a nation that does not even recognize as a legal union, marriage between a Jew and Gentile, The ADL has also never condemned the extensive Jewish opposition to intermarriage between Jews and non-Jews (every major Jewish organization around the world has openly stated policies opposing intermarriage).
The ADL has condemned Sadaam Hussein and any of his supporters around the world for his invasion of Kuwait, production of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, and for violating United Nations resolutions.
Yet, the ADL did not condemn Israel for the brutal invasion of neighboring Lebanon, resulting in at least 30,000 civilians dead, and lasting almost twenty years in violation of U.N. resolutions. Nor has the ADL condemned Israel for its extensive development of biological and chemical weapons.
The ADL has repeatedly condemned scientists who show that there are significant genetic differences in intelligence between Whites and Blacks, and they have condemned me for simply pointing out that scientific truth.
Yet, the ADL has not condemned the founder of Israel, David Ben Gurion, for his statement that he believed in the "intellectual and moral superiority" of the Jewish people.
The ADL is by its own definition a racist, supremacist organization, and recognizing that fact should not make someone deserve the label of "anti-Semite." The truth is that the ADL is anti-Gentile! They are not about anti-defamation, but their whole modus operandi is concerned with defaming anyone of any nationality who wants for their own people what the Jewish ADL leaders what for theirs. In other words, they are opposed to every other ethnic nationalism but their own! The whole organization is based on on attacking, intimidating and defaming anyone who opposes their Jewish supremacism.
In fact, anyone who criticizes their hypocrisy and that of Israel, whether or not the critics are "racially aware" or "anti-racist," will be condemned by the ADL. For their real mission is simply to advance the Jewish Supremacist agenda in America and around the world.
The following article on the ADL by our research staff should be enlightening to all readers of the David Duke Report Online.
ADL of B'nai B'rith
The ADL was founded in 1913 as an adjunct to the international Jewish fraternal order and secret society, the "B'nai B'rith," whose name, translated literally from Hebrew means "sons of the cut" - referring to circumcision.
The ADL operates 28 offices domestically and 3 offices abroad. They bring in nearly $60 million a year.
Current ADL National Director is Abraham Foxman.
Links to Organized Crime
For years, the ADL has been linked to Jewish organized crime.
The ADL gave Las Vegas Jewish gangster, Moe Dalitz, their "Torch of Freedom" award in 1985 for his donating millions of dollars to the state of Israel. Donations from Dalitz, who headed the Cleveland mob known as the Mayfield Road Gang, allegedly came from his ownership of Las Vegas casinos such as the Desert Inn.
Las Vegas Review-Journal article "The Double Life of Moe Dalitz" by John L. Smith, explains Dalitz' background in their series "The First 100 Persons Who Shaped Southern Nevada" (at http://www.1st100.com/part2/dalitz.html).
"Early in his life, Dalitz was a bootlegger and racketeer mentioned in the same breath as (Jewish) Meyer Lansky and (Jewish) Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. In Cleveland, one longtime member of law enforcement would tell the Kefauver Commission, 'Ruthless beatings, unsolved murders and shakedowns, threats and bribery came to this community as a result of gangsters' rise to power.' Dalitz was considered part of that rise."
Theodore Silbert worked simultaneously for the ADL and the Sterling National Bank (a mafia operation controlled by the Lansky syndicate).
Mira Lansky Boland, the granddaughter of notorious Jewish mafia boss, Meyer Lansky, was described in a Village Voice article by Robert Friedman of May 11th, 1993, as the ADL's top 'fact-finder' in Washington.
Spy Ring and Murder Squads?
An Article in the Los Angeles Times of 9th April, 1993, by Richard C. Paddock, detailed a police raid on ADL offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles where the police seizing evidence of a nationwide intelligence network accused of keeping files on more than 950 political groups, newspapers, and labor unions and as many as 12,000 people.
Describing the spy ring in detail, San Francisco authorities simultaneously released voluminous documents telling how operatives of the Anti-Defamation League searched through trash and infiltrated organizations to gather intelligence on Arab-American, right-wing, and what they called "pinko" organizations...
Police alleged that the organization maintains undercover operatives to gather political intelligence in at least seven cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
According to police officials, groups that were the focus of the spy operation span the political spectrum, including such groups as the Ku Klux Klan, the National Alliance, Greenpeace, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the United Farm Workers, and the Jewish Defense League. Also on the list were Mills College, the board of directors of San Francisco public television station KQED, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian newspaper.
In addition to allegations of obtaining confidential information from police, the Anti-Defamation League could face a total of 48 felony counts for not properly reporting the employment of its chief West Coast spy, Roy Bullock, according to the affidavit filed to justify the search warrant.
The Anti-Defamation League disguised payments to Bullock for more than 25 years by funneling $550 a week to Beverly Hills attorney Bruce I. Hochman, who then paid Bullock, according to the documents released in San Francisco. Hochman, a former president of the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles is one of the state's leading tax attorneys.
"Until 1990, Hochman, a former U.S. prosecutor, also was a member of a panel appointed by then-Senator Pete Wilson to secretly make initial recommendations on new federal judges in California."
Hochman is a former regional president of the Anti-Defamation League.
A second article from the Los Angeles Times, 13th April, 1993, also by Richard C. Paddock, details ADL spy Roy Bullock's possible role in death squads, torture and kidnapping.
The article introduces another ADL spy, Tom Gerard, a former CIA agent and San Francisco police officer was accused of providing confidential material from police files to the Anti-Defamation League.
Gerard fled to the Philippines after the FBI interviewed him, but left behind a briefcase in his police locker. Its contents, according to the Los Angeles Times, included passports, driver's licenses, and identification cards in 10 different names; identification cards in his own name for four different embassies in Central America; and a collection of blank birth certificates, Army discharge papers, and official stationery from various agencies.
Also in Tom Gerard's briefcase were extensive information on death squads, a black hood, apparently for use in interrogations, and photos of blindfolded and chained men.
Investigators suspect that Gerard and other police sources gave the ADL confidential driver's license or vehicle registration information on a vast number of people, including as many as 4,500 members of [just] one target group [of interest to the ADL], the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee.
Service of a Foreign Government?
While posing as a community oriented group of American Jews working to combat bigotry, the ADL has been alleged to used its spy network to illegally provide the government of Israel with information.
In an article entitled "Spies for Zion," in the San Francisco Weekly for 28th April, 1993, police officials expose an illegal spy ring working for Israel. "For decades the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has gathered secret files on critics of Israel. As the San Francisco District Attorney prepares criminal charges against the group, will pressure from prominent Jewish leaders derail the prosecution?"
The San Francisco Weekly described how the ADL spy network passed information to the Israeli government about a professor who made a negative remark about Israel in his class:
"Professor Dwight Simpson and the consul general of Israel stood in a corner at the Fairmont Hotel discussing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict amid a bright tinkling of glasses and soft murmuring of voices. Halfway through the conversation at the cocktail party, the Israeli diplomat, Harry Kney-Tal, said: 'By the way, that was a very funny joke you told your class the other day.'
"The San Francisco State University international relations professor didn't think much of the comment at first. But later that night, he asked himself: 'How in the hell does the Israeli consul general know the jokes I tell in my class?"
"As a critic of Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Simpson had been targeted by Jewish students in the past. They picketed his class on several occasions, handing out leaflets charging that he's anti-Semitic and opposes a Jewish homeland.
"So the professor didn't have to wrestle with the consul general's statement for long. He quickly surmised that Kney-Tal got his information from the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith [or ADL for short] by way of Jewish students who do political surveillance work on campus for them. 'It's always confused me why they have to spy on me,' Simpson said, 'My work isn't secret. My whole life is an open book.'
"After a heated demonstration in 1989 that disrupted Simpson's class, the Jewish Student Action committee was expelled from campus for violating academic freedom. 'This is a serious problem in academia,' Simpson added. 'Whenever you have monitoring and surveillance, it stifles the free discussion of ideas...'
"Simpson is just one of thousands of people whose lives have been affected by the far-ranging spy activities of the ADL. An 80-year-old nonprofit, whose professed mission is to fight anti-Semitism, the ADL uses a less controversial term - 'fact-finding' - for its spying...
The article expressed concern that the ADL was above the law:
"Mark my words, this is going to be obfuscated, obliterated, and desecrated,' said one veteran police inspector. 'It's going to a classic study in how things get covered up. You don't do Jewish people in San Francisco. It's not PC. Especially when you have two U.S. Senators who are Jewish (Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein) and the city's chief of protocol is Dick Goldman (a prominent fundraiser in the Jewish community)."
Did Jewish interest work to protect the ADL? The San Francisco Weekly explains how:
"Last week, Goldman called Police Chief Tony Ribera about the police department's own internal investigation. After the call, the police decided to exclude the ADL and Bullock from the probe...
In a Village Voice article by Robert Friedman of 11th May, 1993, the ADL's top 'fact-finder' in Washington and granddaughter of notorious Jewish mafia boss, Meyer Lansky, Mira Lansky Boland, arranged a trip to Israel for Mr. Tom Gerard, the same man in who's briefcase was found information on death squads, a black hood, used in interrogations, and photos of blindfolded and chained men.
According to this same article, Boland admitted at a 1990 criminal trial that she had, in typical ADL Newspeak, "shared information" with members of the CIA at an invitation-only ADL conference.
The same article pointed to an ADL connection to the Jonathan Pollard spy affair:
"In 1987, the ADL came under FBI scrutiny in the wake of the Pollard spy scandal. While assigned to the Navy's Anti-Terrorist Alert Center, where he had access to the most closely-guarded U.S. secrets, Jonathan Pollard stole thousands of pages of classified documents for Israel, which, according to Federal prosecutors, 'could fill a room the size of a large closet ... ten feet by six feet by six feet.' Pollard's handler was Avi Sella, an Israeli air force colonel whose wife worked for the New York ADL as a lawyer. Pollard later wrote to friends that a prominent ADL leader was deeply involved in the Israeli spy operation."
Additional evidence of ADL cooperation with Israeli
Intelligence comes from a letter written by then National Director of the ADL, Benjamin Epstein on July 7, 1961, would indicate otherwise. Epstein was writing to Saul Joftes who was, at the time, the Executive Secretary of the International Council of B'nai B'rith, the ADL's parent organization, requesting additional funds.
"Our information", wrote Epstein, "in addition to being essential for our own operations, has been of great value and service to both the United States State Department and the Israeli government. All data have been made available to both countries with full knowledge that we are the source."
Promotion of Thought Crime
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
- Bill of Rights, Amendment I
The Anti-Defamation League has been leading the fight for thought crime legislation. It was through their efforts that the FBI began tracking "Hate Crimes" and it was the ADL who has lobbied hardest for state and federal hate crime laws. Under the Orwellian-sounding "hate crimes" laws, American citizens would receive different sentences for the same crime, depending on whether or not their thoughts are "Politically Correct" on issues relating to homosexuality, race, nationality, and politics. Ultimately, having certain "politically incorrect" opinions would become a crime in itself. These new laws would make it a crime to say or publish any fact or opinion that could "incite racial hatred and bigotry".
The promotion of Hate Crime legislation, which would designate Jews and other minorities as special classes of citizens, is a primary concern to the ADL. Top on the list in 1999 was the "Hate Crimes Prevention Act" that would have given federal prosecutors new authority to prosecute crimes against minorities and circumvent the Constitution's protection against Double Jeopardy. Though the measure failed because of Republican opposition, the ADL vowed to fight on. A Jewish Telegraphic Agency story titled "Jewish groups did not get all they wanted in Congress" dated November 20, 1999 explains:
"But on their other top priorities, Jewish groups were not as successful."
"Tougher hate crimes legislation was dropped during the final days of negotiations over the budget bill."
"Michael Lieberman, the Anti-Defamation League's Washington counsel, said his group will push for the measure again when Congress comes back in January."
The ADL has pioneered Thought Crime and what they call "Hate Crime" legislation. The ADL web site proudly admits to the ADL's leading role in the introduction to their 1999 Hate Crime Laws article:
"ADL has long been in the forefront of national and state efforts to deter and counteract hate-motivated criminal activity."
"In June 1993, the United States Supreme Court upheld a Wisconsin hate crime statute that was based on model legislation originally drafted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in 1981."
Role in Internet Censorship
In an attempt to limit access to unapproved web sites on the world wide web, the ADL pioneered what they call their "Hate Filter". The ADL has promoted their Hate Filter to parents who want to limit what the ADL considers objectionable content. More insidious are efforts by the ADL to provide their Hate Filter to public institutions such as public libraries, schools and colleges. The ADL has also worked with major Internet carries like America Online (AOL) to create "Terms of Service" which would prohibit any speech the ADL finds offensive.
The ADL web site proudly claims that their Hate Filter:
".protects children by blocking access to World Wide Web sites of individuals or groups that, in the judgment of the Anti-Defamation League, advocate hatred, bigotry or even violence towards Jews or other groups on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or other immutable characteristics."
Limiting facts or opinions the ADL find objectionable is not limited to their Hate Filter. ADL operatives now work with major Internet providers such as AOL to limit access to objectionable web site. Subscribers to these services that post opinions that the ADL doesn't like on their web pages or on Usenet are notified that their accounts are cancelled.
The ADL works to ensure that commercial ISPs create terms of service that limit what their users can read or say. By lobbying commercial carriers to censor their users, the ADL acheives their aim of outlawing free speech and expression without the contraints of the First Amendment's protections.
An ADL press release from October 21, 1996 titled "New ADL Report Documents Increased Use of Internet By Haters; ADL and AOL Explore Ways To Set Standards Against Hate Online," ADL National Director, Abe Foxman, explains typical ADL double-talk how they are working with AOL to set policies against politically incorrect speech. These policies, known as "Terms of Service" can then be used by commercial carriers to enforce speech regulations without concern for Constitutional Rights.
"We are working with America Online to create an atmosphere of responsibility on-line, to set standards within the framework of the First Amendment that will give assurances to parents, educators and communities that there is no tolerance for hate on-line."
In a follow-up press release from April 7, 1997 titled "ADL Calls On America Online To Adhere To Own Guidelines Regarding Hate Material" the ADL explains their relationship with AOL and what "standards within the framework of the First Amendment" means.
"In the past, the League has been gratified by the responsiveness of AOL to complaints about racism and bigotry but now calls on AOL to adhere to their terms of service regarding hate material with equal vigilance as those regarding pornography."
"While we strongly believe in freedom of speech and do not advocate censorship on the Internet," said Mr. Foxman, " we expect those companies which have created guidelines to adhere to them."
"AOL's terms of service state that AOL, Inc., its affiliates and ICPs have the right to remove content they deem, in their discretion, "harmful" or "offensive." The League calls on AOL to live up to its own commitments."
In the ADL article "Responding to Extemist Speech Online: 10 Frequently Asked Questions", the ADL explains how they work around the Constitution to stifle free speech. In this article, the ADL suggests the following:
"Commercial ISPs, such as America Online (AOL), may voluntarily agree to prohibit users from sending racist or bigoted messages over their services. Such prohibitions do not implicate First Amendment rights because they are entered into through private contracts and do not involve government action in any way.
"Once an ISP promulgates such regulations, it must monitor the use of its service to ensure that the regulations are followed. If a violation does occur, the ISP should, as a contractual matter, take action to prevent it from happening again. For example, if a participant in a chat room engages in racist speech in violation of the "terms of service" of the ISP, his account could be cancelled, or he could be forbidden from using the chat room in the future. ISPs should encourage users to report suspected violations to company representatives."
The ADL suggests in the same article that Universities limit the use of their computer systems to prevent students from promoting or reading objectionable material.
"Because private universities are not agents of the government, they may forbid users from engaging in offensive speech using university equipment or university services."
"Nonetheless, public universities may promulgate content-neutral regulations that effectively prevent the use of school facilities or services by extremists. For example, a university may limit use of its computers and server to academic activities only. This would likely prevent a student from creating a racist Web site for propaganda purposes or from sending racist E-mail from his student E-mail account. One such policy -- at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana -- stipulates that its computer services are "provided in support of the educational, research and public service missions of the University and its use must be limited to those purposes."
Behind this mask of humanitarian public service hides an organization with links to organized crime, murder squads, a domestic spying ring used to "monitor" tens of thousands of Americans, and the Mossad, the secret police and assassination service of the Israeli government. With the help of a friendly media, the ADL has become the premier lobby for Jewish interests in America, and the source of hate crime legislation and curtailment of First Amendment freedom of speech through their attempted censorship of the Internet.
