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.
