Alison Weir has weathered criticism and hate, slander and insults, in the quest for justice for Palestinians. Her organization, If Americans Knew, reconfirmed its reason for existence in the ups and downs of a recent, difficult controversy.
In preparation for Alison Weir’s informative event on the Israeli occupation of Palestine, Fresno CA braced itself for protests that Israel partisans had promised. The ADL, American Jewish Committee, etc had condemned the event. But the evening was peaceful and educational, with a large, full auditorium, extremely receptive audience, and TV news reports on the event. After the almost 2-hour talk, there was a long line of audience members eager to purchase her book…
Alison Weir’s 2013 letter to the ADL thanks it for including IAK in the “top 10 anti-Israel organizations” – i.e. most effective & committed groups working for justice and human rights for Palestinians.

The Anti Defamation League (ADL) is trying to win a contract with California universities to do “anti-bias” training – but ADL is a deeply biased organization and should be stopped.
Netanyahu: “Israel is not a state of all its citizens. According to the nation-state law we passed, Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people — and not anyone else.”
In the wake of the New Zealand massacre and other serious incidents, some are calling for more policing of the internet. Philip Giraldi argues that US media is already over-regulated, and the bodies that oversee the regulating (for example Congress and ADL) can not be trusted to have our interests at heart.
Belen Fernandez writes in the Jacobin that Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent pact with a far-right, anti-Arab party ahead of April’s elections is in keeping with a state that has racism and exclusion baked into its foundation.
