LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT FOXMAN’S S H I T LIST « Desertpeace


Make sure to read THIS post first…..

These are groups that seek real peace and justice for not only Palestinians but for real Jews as well.

The Top Ten American Groups That The ADL & Israel have their eye on!

They organize mass demonstrations exposing Israel’s crimes and lies and what Government or Zionist Controlled media will not show us. They all keep us updated on the human rights abuses that the Zionist State of Israel breaks each and every day. They dare speak out when our  elected officials do not. They put in countless hours to  pursue boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns against Apartheid Israel something that is really needed in order to bring justice forth for Palestine and the rest of the world.

They are the 10 most influential and active anti- Zionist Israel groups in the United States, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

These are the groups that Israel fears will awaken the whole globe to truth and one day will finally see Israel’s racist policies done away with and actual tax payers money  being spent on the well being of people in that country not the well being of Israel that uses their money to commit murder and genocide against a population that can’t defend itself.

These are groups that seek real peace and justice for not only Palestinians but for real Jews as well.

“While there are hundreds of groups that organize and participate in various anti- Zionist Israel activities, The ADL have identified the largest and most well-coordinated groups, that Israel fears” said Abraham Foxman, ADL National Director.  “These groups expose Israel and how Illegal Israel is.

In a new report that we came across: it shows what the  ADL is looking at. This is the Top 10 groups that can create a real impact on Zionist Israel, these are groups operating in America that Israel & their American puppets hope that Americans don’t pay much attention to. Israel and their ADL examines daily the dynamics of these movements and the ability of the most prominent groups to organize events, attract supporters and forge relationships with other like-minded organizations.

“These groups expose Israel for who they really are through various public campaigns. Their messages are the truth and they show how the media and government  are one-sided and they expose what Israel does not want the world to see.

They fight to uphold international laws and justice. They show the double standards when it involves Palestine Israel. They Expose the Terrorism used by Israel that we can not see by the mainstream Zionist controlled media.

These are the groups that set some examples of what we should all follow. These are the groups that we need to be kept updated about.

  1. Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER): They are “anti-war” they attract people who clearly see that Israel’s policies are “imperialist” or “colonialist,” In many ways, Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER), is a large anti-war group, It was Established in 2001 by the International Action Center, ANSWER and their supporters are against “Occupation that include Occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine” and expose the U.S. military and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) of being the “real terrorists in the Middle East.” Because of its organizing ability  and their ability to partner with a wide array of  groups, ANSWER has positioned itself as one of the leading coordinators of rallies against the actions and policies of Zionist Israel, many of which take place during periods of heightened tension, including the summer 2006 war against The people of Lebanon, The Gaza invasions in the winter of 2008-2009 the current Gaza Siege that has seen Gaza turned into an open air prison. Then there was the May 2010 Flotilla Massacre that seen the flotilla who was delivering humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza raided by the Israeli navy where numerous people where executed for the crimes of being human and their charity. In the days following the flotilla incident, ANSWER chapters around the country helped organize protests in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C. At the rally in Chicago on June 1, 2010, that seen everyone calling on  “Stop Funding Israeli Apartheid,” “Gaza Ghetto Genocide,” “Starving Palestinians is Not a Jewish Value” and “Stop Israel’s Slaughter in Gaza.”

Friends of Sabeel

  1. If Americans Knew (IAK): If Americans Knew is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, independent research and information-dissemination institute, with particular focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, U.S. foreign policy regarding the Middle East, and media coverage of this issue. Specifically, the organization’s objective is to provide information that is to a large degree missing from American press coverage of this critical region.  If Americans Knew (IAK), founded in 2001 by Alison Weir,  calls on people to demand an end to U.S. support for Israel. (IAK’s) materials, which are widely circulated at events and cited in many articles, exposes the special relationship between the U.S. and Israel and shows how this is detrimental to American interests and is driven by a pro-Israel lobby. Weir, who serves as IAK’s executive director and has recently been named the next president of the Council for the National Interest, frequently speaks on college campuses and other venues around the United States. In her presentations and articles, Weir advances  truth about Israel, like the truth that has been hidden from Americans about the Attack on the USS Liberty by Israel. More recently,  assisted in exposing how Israel engages in the harvesting and trafficking of Palestinian organs. Weir wrote several articles that proved beyond a reasonable doubt  how Israeli organ traffickers “coerce people into giving up their organs,” that the Israeli government has enabled a “transplant tourism” industry that exploits poor and needy individuals overseas, and that Israeli authorities have “targeted” Palestinians for autopsies and organ harvesting performed without permission.
  1. International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian-led movement committed to resisting the Israeli apartheid in Palestine by using nonviolent, direct-action methods and principles. Founded by a small group of primarily Palestinian and Israeli activists in August, 2001, ISM aims to support and strengthen the Palestinian popular resistance by providing the Palestinian people with two resources, international solidarity and an international voice with which to nonviolently resist an overwhelming military occupation force.

7.grassroots organizing, education, advocacy, and media, Jewish Voice for Peace works to achieve a lasting peace that recognizes the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians for security and self-determination. Jewish Voice for Peace is the only national Jewish organization that provides a voice for Jews and allies who believe that peace in the Middle East will be achieved through justice and full equality for both Palestinians and Israelis. With offices in New York and California, 100,000 online activists, chapters across the country and an Advisory Board comprised of numerous prominent Jewish thinkers and artists, JVP supports nonviolent efforts here and in Israel-Palestine to end Israel’s Occupation, expand human and civil rights, and implement a US policy based on international law and democracy.

JVP:
  • Conducts global campaigns to defend and free Israeli and Palestinian human rights activists

  • Fights McCarthyite censorship of debate and misuses of the charge of anti-Semitism, especially in the Jewish community
  • Supports the growth of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement through divestment from companies that profit from the occupation
  • Works in coalition with others including Arab, Muslim, Palestinian and Christian groups to fight bigotry and end the occupation

  • Facilitates Congressional outreach regarding policy in the region – founded in Berkeley, California, in 1996, JVP calls for an end to U.S. aid to Israel, it shows us all the Israel “apartheid” policies, and supports divestment campaigns against Israel.
  1. Muslim American Society (MAS):
    Established in 1993 as a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization, the Muslim American Society (MAS) is a dynamic charitable, religious, social, cultural, and educational, organization. Over the past two decades, MAS has expanded to more than 50 chapters across the United States. MAS offers unique programs and services that seek to better the individual and in turn, the greater society by imparting Islamic knowledge, promoting community service, engaging in political activism, and much more.
    Over the past two decades, MAS has evolved into a nationally recognized grassroots movement. The organization is empowered by a unique chapter structure that is linked through a common mission and vision. Focusing on personal development of individuals through a comprehensive Islamic educational curriculum, MAS promotes active involvement in communities across the U.S. by providing opportunities for community service, interfaith initiatives, youth programs, and civic engagement.  By cooperating and collaborating with other organizations, MAS has expanded its reach into thousands of communities across the United States.
  1. Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP): College campuses in the United States are perhaps the most well-known venues and platforms for events and campaigns. Many universities have one or more groups that organize activities that speak out against the crimes of Israel, the one that stands out the most is Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), with chapters at close to 75 American universities. SJP chapters regularly organize activities presenting a even handed view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including mock “apartheid walls” and “checkpoint” displays, presentations by very well educated speakers and longer programs like Palestine Awareness and Israeli Apartheid Week. In the past year, several SJP chapters have initiated Israel divestment campaigns are petitioning their universities to do the right thing and cease their investments with companies that do business with Israel.SJP promotes its programs as a way for students to learn about the “other side” of the conflict, these events are very educational. In March 2010, for example, SJP chapters at several universities organized  events in conjunction with Israeli Apartheid Week that featured speakers who showed how Israel is an “ethnocentric racist society” and Zionism as “inherently undemocratic.”

  1. US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (USCEIO): The primary organizer of efforts to persuade the U.S. government to cut off aid to Israel is the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (USCEIO), a Washington, D.C.-based coalition of more than 200 national and local groups. USCEIO organizes a variety of campaigns and petitions toward this end, They show us all how the U.S. is complicit in Israel’s “crimes” because of its fiscal support for Israel. USCEIO’s function as an umbrella organization boosts cooperation among various groups and its annual conferences serve as a forum for representatives of its member groups to discuss strategy, formulate policy and highlight recent successes. The group consistently focuses its efforts on lobbying Congress, often dedicating the last day of its Annual National Organizers’ Conference as a lobbying day on Capitol Hill. USCEIO has had some success in attracting the support of politicians, including Representatives Dennis Kucinich (OH) and Brian Baird (WA), who have spoken out against Israel at various USCEIO events. At its most recent conference, which was held in July 2010 in Kansas City, Missouri, Congressman Baird received a “Courage in Congress” award for his opposing the blockade on the Gaza Strip and delivered the keynote address at the conference’s dinner. Baird described the 2008-2009 Gaza war as a “horrible, catastrophic destruction of a civilian population” and condemned the situation in Gaza as “collective punishment.” When asked about the political landscape regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Baird told the world what some already knew that some politicians side with Israel purely for political and financial gain:
There are many groups that did not make the above list. Many of these groups satisfy some but not all of the criteria used by Israel and the ADL. For example, there are groups that sometimes worry the ADL but they do not have a national presence,  these groups include Adalah-NY, Neturei Karta and the Middle East Children’s Alliance. There are other groups, like the council for the national interest, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and the US Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel. These groups have most recently been spotted on the radar of ADL & Israel because they have important roles in creating policy and setting agendas but do not organize a significant number of events. There are groups  such as the American Friends Service Committee, CODEPINK, and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee that do a variety of great work on many different fronts.
