ADL Report on Campus Anti-Israel Activity in 2011-12

In the past two weeks, close to 40 anti-Israel demon­stra­tions and ral­lies took place on Amer­i­can col­lege cam­puses in reac­tion to Israel’s Oper­a­tion Pil­lar of Defense. These ral­lies, most of which were orga­nized by anti-Israel stu­dent groups like Stu­dents for Jus­tice in Pales­tine, com­prised more than 1/3 of the total anti-Israel ral­lies that took place across the country.

But this lat­est burst in anti-Israel activ­ity did not take place in a vac­uum. In fact, anti-Israel stu­dent groups are increas­ingly orga­nized and deploy a vari­ety of tools to spread vit­riol about the state of Israel and encour­age other poten­tially like-minded stu­dents to join the cause.

A new ADL report, which looks at the state of anti-Israel activ­ity in the 2011-12 aca­d­e­mic year, high­lights sev­eral new trends and ini­tia­tives that have devel­oped on Amer­i­can cam­puses, includ­ing accu­sa­tions that Israel engages in “pinkwash­ing,” calls for a one-state solu­tion, Boy­cott, Divest­ment and Sanc­tions (BDS) cam­paigns, com­par­isons between Israel’s secu­rity fence and the U.S.-Mexico bor­der, and anti-Semitic events that took place under the guise of anti-Israel activism.

ADL Releases New Report on Anti-Semitism Featured on Iran’s English-Language Press TV

While Iran­ian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ahmadine­jad may no longer be in New York, his hate­ful mes­sages con­tinue to be spread in the U.S. and around the world through Iran’s offi­cial English-language pro­pa­ganda net­work, Press TV.

ADL has released a new report titled Iran’s Press TV: Broad­cast­ing Anti-Semitism to the Eng­lish Speak­ing World which ana­lyzes the net­work as “one of the world’s lead­ing dis­pensers of con­spir­a­to­r­ial anti-Semitism in Eng­lish” and exposes the Amer­i­can anti-Semites, con­spir­acy the­o­rists and Holo­caust deniers who are mis­lead­ingly pre­sented on Press TV’s pro­gram­ming as seri­ous and cred­i­ble experts.

Among those who have appeared on Press TV are Amer­i­can anti-Semite and racist David Duke; Imam Abdul Alim Musa, head of the Masjid Al Islam Mosque in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., who is affil­i­ated with the anti-Semitic Sabiqun move­ment; Mark Glenn, a vir­u­lently anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­rist; and Gor­don Duff, Senior Edi­tor of the conspiracy-oriented web­site Vet­er­ans Today that alleges, for exam­ple, that Israelis and Jew­ish mem­bers of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion car­ried out the 9/11 attacks as a “false flag” oper­a­tion to pro­voke war.

The report also high­lights some of the hate­ful con­tent fea­tured on Press TV so far in 2012 includ­ing bogus alle­ga­tions of Zion­ist con­trol over world events, “Israeli Lobby” con­trol of the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, exces­sive Jewish/Zionist influ­ence as a result of dis­pro­por­tion­ate wealth, and Jews and Israel secretly being behind a num­ber of “false flag” operations.
