The Anti-Defamation League: Covering Up Racism and Israeli War Crimes For Nearly A Century

Note: See here, here and here for past posts on the ADL and its questionable connections.



The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was founded in 1913 after Leo Frank, a Jewish executive who raped and strangled a 13-year-old girl, was taken from jail and hung by angry citizens appalled at the governor’s decision to commute his sentence. Many American Jews believed the conviction and subsequent lynching was motivated by anti-Semitism. In response, the Anti-Defamation League was founded with the express purpose of combating anti-Semitism.
Although the ADL was supposedly formed with noble intentions, its subsequent history has been anything but honorable. The Anti-Defamation League has been marred with mob ties almost since its founding, including a close relationship with notorious Jewish mobster Moe Dalitz, who provided funding for the ADL and was rewarded with the league’s highest honor, the Torch of Liberty Award. The Anti-Defamation League also had a close connection to Jewish mob boss Meyer Lanksy, even employing his granddaughter Mira Lansky as their legal liaison today. Following in her grandfather’s footsteps, Mira paid for the luxurious vacations of the Anti-Defamation League spies who perpetrated the infamous 1993 ADL spying scandal, which will be addressed later in the article.
The noble intentions of fighting anti-Semitism and racism were completely corrupted in the 1940′s when, according to Robert Friedman in The Village Voice, May 11, 1993, Vol. XXXVIII No. 19, the ADL began destroying American gentile lives by spying on “leftists” and “communists” and sharing that information with Senator Joseph McCarthy’s House Un-American Committee. As many Americans would like to forget, this communist witch hunt was used as an excuse to destroy American’s careers and reputations based on little to no evidence.
In 1967, Israel purposefully attacked the American naval ship USS Liberty with the intention of murdering every sailor on board and then blaming the attack on Egypt. Israel thought that this “hostile action by Egypt” would get America to change its neutral status on the Israeli-Arab war and form an alliance with Israel to defeat its neighbors. Unfortunately for Israel, a few survivors managed to radio the US command and tell them that Israel was the aggressor, not Egypt. Israel claimed it was an accident; although every survivor of the USS Liberty attack rejected Israel’s mistaken identity story. And Lt. General Marshall Carter, the director of the NSA, told congress the attack, “couldn’t be anything else but deliberate.” The evidence that the attack was deliberate is so overwhelming it is literally an insult to reason to suggest otherwise. The ADL became a propaganda arm of the Israeli government in the 1970′s and 80′s when it was at the forefront of the movement to keep incriminating documents about the USS Liberty Attack confidential. Even to this day the ADL still attempts to cover up the USS Liberty incident on their website, in which they claim it was an accident and call anyone who suggests otherwise, anti-Semitic.

In 1985, it was discovered that a Jewish American named Jonathan Pollard was stealing American secrets and giving them to Israel for money. The wife of Pollard’s handler, Avi Sella, worked for the ADL, and Pollard later admitted that a prominent ADL member was deeply involved in the spying. Like AIPAC, the ADL does not register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act as per the law, even though it works closely with the Mossad, and has been caught spying on Americans for Israel. Through political donations, the ADL has remained above prosecution for these documented crimes. Amazingly, the ADL even had the gumption to shamelessly appeal to President Clinton in 1993 to commute their spy’s sentence.
In 1993, San Francisco newspapers broke the story that the ADL had been paying police officers for confidential information, illegally wire-tapping phones, and even dumpster diving to acquire  private information on American citizens. The Anti-Defamation League later sold the information to the Israeli and South African governments. Among the individuals, the ADL spied on were civil rights activists deemed “anti-Israel”, Congressmen such as Nanci Pelosi, reporters, labor unions, the NAACP, African National Congress, and the Rainbow Coalition. Presumably, the ADL was going to use any damning material acquired during their spying efforts to blackmail these politicians and influential people into changing their stances on Israel. Just one of their spies, Roy Bullock, had compiled files on more than 9,800 Americans and 950 organizations spanning three decades. After the search of the ADL offices, the San Francisco District Attorney said the ADL was conducting a “national spy network.” A few months later, the DA mysteriously retracted the statement.
Robert Friedman reports that, “more than a few Jewish officials privately say the ADL has to decide whether it is a human rights group or a secret police.”
It was later revealed that the ADL was gathering private files on American businessmen of Arab descent and handing them over to the Israeli government, which subsequently harassed and detained these businessmen when they traveled to Israel. In one such case, the ADL actually spied on Arab Americans’ funerals and gave that footage to Israeli intelligence officials who later detained the innocent Arab Americans when they traveled to Israel.
The Israeli lobby in America exploited the events of September 11, 2001 in order to ship thousands of top American law enforcement officials to Israel for counter-terrorism training. The Anti-Defamation League has also boasted on their website of training more than 45,000 American police about Jewish history and even lobbying the FBI to require all new agents and analysts to attend their Jewish history course and visit the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Due to the Anti-Defamation League’s distrust of black people, black American academics like Tony Martin and religious figures like Louis Farrakan have been labeled anti-Semitics and threatened for merely exposing Jewish historical records that proved Jewish people actually dominated the African slave trade. The ADL has become an organization that smears people who state facts which happen to be negative to Jewish people rather than an organization that fights racism. The following site describes the anti-gentile racism professor Martin suffered at the hands of the ADL for merely assigning a text book about the African slave trade: See here
In 1975, the ADL published a report titled “Target USA: The Arab Propaganda Offensive,” which smeared peaceful Pro-Arab groups. The ADL then published the book: Pro-Arab Propaganda: Vehicles and Voices, an enemies list of 31 organizations and 34 individuals, which put an “academic hit list” on university professors and student organizations that were opposed to Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. As a result of the book, many of the professors listed were fired or passed over for promotions. Given that nearly 80% of the top administrators at Ivy League schools are Jewish (as this article proves), the consequences of being put on the ADL’s hit list can be quite severe.
The ADL also puts the names of reporters, activists, and others who speak out about Israel’s human rights abuses on discriminatory lists. Because Jewish Americans control many of the most powerful positions in America, this can be a death sentence for a career in banking, politics, or the media.
Even ardent Jewish organizations have criticized the ADL for inhibiting free speech. The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) Executive Director Matt Brooks said:
“This effort to stifle debate on US policy toward Israel runs counter to this American tradition. Accordingly, the RJC will not be silenced on this or any issue.”
The Emergency Committee for Israel, one of the most despicable Israeli lobbies in America who launched a massive advertising campaign accusing the OWS movement of anti-Semitism and calling Ron Paul a bad politician, issued the following statement:
“You must be kidding.” It promised that “this attempt to silence those of us who have questioned the current administration’s foreign policy approach vis-a-vis Israel will reenergize us.” ”Directors Harris and Foxman need a refresher course on the virtues of free speech and robust debate in a democracy. Their effort to stifle discussion and debate is unworthy of the best traditions of America, and of Israel.”
In 1990, a former Mossad agent, Victor Ostrovsky, came out and admitted that he worked with the ADL to label people who criticized Israel legitimately as anti-Semitic so they would be discredited and no one would listen to them. Ostrovsky gave an example of a reporter who criticized Israel for cluster bombing Lebanon, which was true. Victor made a call to the New York ADL office and asked them to label the reporter anti-Semitic, which the ADL promptly did. Ostrovsky’s first book sold 8 million copies worldwide, yet his second book was not reviewed in any newspaper in North America because it revealed the truth about the Mossad and its relationship to the ADL. This censorship set a world record in the book publishing industry.
The ADL came under heavy controversy in 2006 after it made a concerted effort to get the Polish Consul General to cancel a speech by civil rights activist Tony Judt that was to be held on their land. The ADL immediately denied having any role in the cancelation of the speech, which would have discussed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Polish Consul General later told The Washington Post that the ADL had put concerted pressure on him to cancel the event.
The Anti-Defamation League has turned into the exact type of hate group that it was designed to prevent. A former ADL spy, David Gurvitz, actually admitted his involvement in the Anti-Defamation League’s support of the Apartheid in South Africa. Apparently the ADL was illegally obtaining information on anti-apartheid activists and selling that information to the South African government. The ADL’s support for apartheid regimes in the past may explain why they have consistently supported and covered up Israel’s apartheid policies of separating Jewish and Palestinian children in separate and unequal schools. Palestinian schools receive far less funding than Jewish schools. The ADL also supports Israel’s policy of giving Jewish Israelis five times greater access to water than their Arab neighbors and limitations on Palestinians ability to travel and attend sporting events that Jewish Israelis are allowed to attend.
It is surprising that the Anti-Defamation League would cover up an association for civil rights in Israel (ACRI) poll that highlights incredible, rising rates of anti-Arab attitudes in Israel given the ADL’s propensity to publish polls demonstrating anti-Semitism. In 2007, The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) took a poll which found that 66% of Israeli teens believe Arabs are less intelligent, uncultured, and violent. Fifty percent of the Israelis taking the poll said they would not share an apartment with an Arab, befriend an Arab or let their kids befriend Arabs, or even let Arabs into their homes. A poll taken by the ACRI in 2008 found that these trends were increasing. Another poll taken in 2007 by the Center Against Racism found that 75% of Israeli Jews did not approve of Jews living in the same apartment buildings as Arabs, and that more than 50% of Jews would not have an Arab boss and thought that marrying an Arab was tantamount to national treason. Fifty percent of Israelis also thought Arabs should not be allowed in the same entertainment sites, and 40% wanted Arab’s voting rights rescinded.
The truth is that most Jewish people are not really Semites at all and therefore, this Jewish racism should be called anti-Semitism and fall under the official mandate of the ADL. Some Jewish scholars estimate that 85-95% of modern day Jews are descendants of Khazars, who aren’t Semites. The mere fact that the ADL labels people who they deem against Jews as anti-Semitic is in itself anti-Semitic because it is insinuating that Arabs, who are clearly Semitic, are not real people and are undeserving to be included in their Semitic rhetoric. The article, Jewish Israelis are the worst Anti-Semites On The Planet explains this argument in depth.

Of this photo, the US ambassador wrote, “Scenes like this were common all over the Armenian provinces, in the spring and summer months of 1915. Death in its several forms –massacre, starvation, exhaustion– destroyed the larger part of the refugees. The Turkish policy was that of extermination under the guise of deportation.”
In 2007, The director of the ADL, Abe Foxman, claimed the Armenian genocide was a mere massacre and not a real genocide. He publicly lobbied the American government not to recognize the event as a genocide. The racist ADL leader wanted Jewish people to be the only ones who have suffered from a genocide and therefore, able to monopolize the sympathy that comes with that status. As Peter Beinart, a former zionist, wrote in The Crisis of Zionism, “in the 1970s, American Jewish organizations began hoarding the Holocaust.” After receiving significant national pressure, Foxman recanted his racist comments and changed his mind.
In 2010, the ADL joined hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan in its opposition to the building of a Muslim community center several blocks away from the September 11, 2001 Ground Zero site. The Muslims had every right to build there, but the ADL opposed the move because of its bigoted attitude towards Muslims.
One has to remember that it was non-gentile organizations like the mainstream media and the ADL that laid sole responsibility of the September 11, 2001 attacks on “Muslim extremists.”  The only ones arrested on 9-11 however were Israeli Mossad agents who were caught filming the attacks and celebrating afterwards (Also, see this article.) It was later concluded by the FBI that Israel had to have known about the attacks beforehand and purposefully did not warn the US, or had a direct role in the attacks. (Please see here, this is a larger problem than Israel alone.) In addition, the person who profited most from the attacks was Larry Silverstein, a Jewish American with close ties to the current and former Israeli Prime Ministers. Silverstein landed a 99-year lease for the world trade center shortly before the attacks and immediately doubled the insurance specifically for a terrorist attack. The Anti-Defamation League has tried mightily to keep this information out of the mainstream media and has also attempted to censor this information by calling people who state these facts, anti-Semitic.
On a side note, the ADL is a strong supporter of destroying the second amendment right for Americans to own guns. The ADL supported the District of Columbia in the District of Columbia vs Heller, in which the government was arguing that the Second Amendment does not prevent a city from banning firearms even when they are being used in the defense of one’s home. The ADL’s actions to deprive fellow Americans of their constitutional rights has been so egregious that other Jewish groups like Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership has claimed that the ADL promotes “Nazi based laws.”
