Anti-Defamation League – Metapedia

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is a powerful Jewish lobby organization primarily based in the United States but with offices in some other countries. It was founded in 1913 as a branch of B’nai B’rith. In 1930 they had only three fulltime employees. By 1938 the organization expanded to two-hundred and fifty workers.[1]

The organization describes itself as a civil rights organization that fights antisemitism and bigotry more generally.

Critics of Jewish influence and how it is used have often been highly critical of the ADL.

The ADL states that it was founded in 1913 in response to the perceived antisemitism against the Jew Leo Frank who was convicted of the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan that year. Controversy has continued regarding the case with continued attempts to turn Leo Frank into an innocent martyr.

In the 1950s the ADL campaigned to free the Jew Morton Sobell from charges of espionage. In 2008 Sobell admitted to spying for the Soviet Union.[2]

The ADL claims to be an international civil rights organization working for equal civil rights for all but the organization supports Israel and its often Jewish supremacist policies.

ADL undercover agents such as Abraham Feinberg have been stated to have been investigated by the FBI as agents of a foreign government and for stopping investigations regarding illegal arms-smuggling from the US to Israel. Feinberg became well known as financing Harry Truman and helping him to victory in the 1948 presidential elections. Truman recognized Israel minutes after the declaration of independence. Feinberg was also one of the financiers of the Israeli nuclear weapons program.[3][4]

One of the earliest activities was the establishment of what has been described as a private intelligence agency, and sending spies, infiltrators, disruptors, and agents provocateurs against perceived opponents (including other Jews). In the early 1940s they had over 50,000 files on American citizens and their political associations. Declassified FBI files state that in 1940, the ADL supplied contact information of nearly 1,600 ADL members to the FBI to serve as informants and undercover sources. A FBI letter advised that “the Anti-Defamation League does not wish it to become generally known that they do employ private investigators”. A 1947 Congressional hearing revealed that the ADL had begun providing information to the original House Committee on Un-American Activities.[2][3][5][6]

See also the article on the Great Sedition Trial of 1944.

“An ADL operative using illicit press credentials was arrested at a Madison Square Garden disrupting an anti-war rally in 1941. “The ADL had then brought ‘tremendous pressure to bear on Commissioner Seery and the Mayor’s Committee on Press Cards to drop the Forster incident the preceding night.” The effort to quash prosecution included offering payoffs and planting hostile news reports, according to the FBI report.”[2]

“In 1993, Roy Bullock, was exposed as an ADL agent. He was San Francisco art dealer who was fairly well-known in the homosexual community and whose specialty was the infiltration of patriotic, Arab-American, and other organizations on behalf of the League. Bullock was found to have in his possession illegally obtained and highly private and personal data on his targets data which could only have been obtained from police and other confidential government files. These data were also discovered in the files of the ADL itself when police raided ADL headquarters in San Francisco and Los Angeles as result of Bullocks exposure…seizing evidence of a nationwide intelligence network accused of keeping files on more than 950 political groups, newspapers, and labor unions and as many as 12,000 people…operatives of the Anti-Defamation League searched through trash and infiltrated organizations to gather intelligence an Arab-American, right-wing, and what they called pinko organizations…the organization maintains undercover operatives to gather political intelligence in at least seven cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco”. Jewish organizations that had taken positions critical of Israeli policies were included in the Pinko section. There were also files on members of Congress. The ADL or persons working for the ADL also tapped into phone systems, worked closely and likely often illegally with several police officers, and from police sources obtained privileged and personal information on thousands of people. 75% of the information was estimated to had been obtained illegally. It has been alleged that the DA in charge dropped the charges due to needing Jewish support in coming elections. Sensitive information is stated to have been shared with Israel.[3][6][7]

Organizations that the ADL kept files on in 1993 span the political spectrum and included Ku Klux Klan,the White Aryan Resistance, Greenpeace, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the United Farm Workers, the Jewish Defense League, the American Civil Liberties Union, Earth Island Institute, the United Auto Workers, Jews for Jesus, Mother Jones magazine, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Bo Gritz for President Committee, the Asian Law Caucus, the AIDS activist group ACT UP, Centro Legal de la Raza, Irish Northern Aid, National Indian Treaty Council, and Japanese-and American Citizens League.[3][6][7]

While the ADL has publicly focused on US “neo-Nazi” groups without any power, it has been argued that this has been mainly in order to scare rich Jewish fund-raisers, while many of the ADL’s more clandestine activities has also targeted perceived enemies of Israel such as Palestinians, their solidarity groups, Arab-Americans, Arab students, and Arab delegations to the United Nations.[3]

In 1951 the FBI judged material regarding the Arab League and activities of Egypt and Saudi Arabia that the ADL brought to the FBI “to be absolutely unreliable”.[2]

The National Director of the ADL in 1961 stated that “[T]he Anti-Defamation League for many years has maintained a very important, confidential investigative coverage of Arab activities and propaganda.Our information, in addition to being essential for our own operations, has been of great value and service to both the United States State Department and the Israeli government. All data have been made available to both countries with full knowledge to each that we were the source” and “we have maintained an information-gathering operation since 1948 relating to activities emanating from the Arab Consular Offices, Arab United Nations Delegations, Arab Information Center, Arab Refugee Office and the Organization of Arab Students”.[3]

In 1969 the FBI proposed investigating the ADL as an Israeli foreign agent after three ADL undercover operatives infiltrated and strategized the takeover of the Organization of Arab Students.[2]

In 1983 the ADL published a 49 page “confidential” booklet for use by Jewish students listing the names of individuals such as Arab-American professors and organizations classified as pro-Arab propagandists. After it became public the ADL stated that the booklet was an unfortunate incident.[3]

Jeffrey Blankfort has argued that the above mentioned Bullock “succeeded in not only becoming a member of the local chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee but, because of his size and weight, he would be in charge of security at all its events” and that “One of the targets Bullock befriended was Palestinian-American Alex Odeh, the head of the Orange County chapter of the ADC who would be killed by a terrorist bomb when he opened the door to his Santa Ana office on October 11, 1985. In Bullocks files, police found a key to Odehs office as well as the floor plan.” Bullock has not officially been linked with the unresolved murder.[3]

The ADL kept files on 48 anti-apartheid organizations, possibly due to fear that they would make comparisons between apartheid and Israeli policies. ADL agents were also paid by South Africa to supply information regarding anti-apartheid organizations in the USA.[3]

“One individual the South African agents were particularly interested in was Chris Hani, the man who was expected to succeed Nelson Mandela as the countrys president. Hani was assassinated in South Africa shortly after a speaking tour in California during which he was trailed by Bullock who prepared a lengthy report on it for the South African government, a copy of which was found in his files.”[3]

The NAACP was one of the organizations that the ADL kept files on 1993.[3]

Jews have been stated to be a major source of funding also in the post civil rights era which prevented the NAACP from taking political positions that would offend the Jewish establishment, such as expressing sympathy with the Palestinian cause or criticizing Israels arms sales to South Africa. “This was typified by the attitude of long-time NAACP Director Roy Wilkins, widely characterized as an Uncle Tom by black activists, who withdrew the NAACP from the National Black Political Convention in 1972, taking exception to a resolution that condemned Israel for “expansionist policies and forceful occupation of the sovereign territories of another state.””[3]

In 1992 ADL issued a 50-page ADL Research Report” entitled The Anti-Semitism of Black Demagogues and Extremists. Heading the list were Min. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, Illinois Congressman Gus Savage, Rev. Al Sharpton, Kwame Ture (the former Stokely Carmichael), poet Amiri Baraka, and rappers Ice Cube and Professor Griff and Public Enemy. Certain black newspapers and radio stations were also criticized.[3]

When the NAACP installed Benjamin Chavis as new director and he reached out to Farrakhan, the ADL responded by causing the NAACPs major Jewish funders cut of funding until Chavis resigned.[3]

One debated passage in the Talmud states “A heathen who studies the Torah deserves death”. The Anti-Defamation League has criticized David Duke for allegedly using this quote out of context by omitting important surrounding parts. However, this has in turn been criticized with the full surrounding context stated to be supporting David Duke. The Anti-Defamation League has been criticized for using very selective citations and selectively omitting important parts in order to create a misleading impression.[8]

The ADL has attacked the Christian New Testament as responsible for persecutions of Jews and being historically false. The ADL were at the forefront of attacking the Mel Gibson film the Passion of the Christ.[9][10][11][12]

One example is in the small town of Oberammergau, Germany. Every ten years since 1635, the locals come together to put on a six-hour Passion Play about the final hours of Jesus Christ. They carry out the vow of their ancestors to produce the play, believing that he delivered them from the bubonic plague. The ADL have through a campaign of intimidated the locals into rewriting the play and have argued for more changes.[9]

The ADL also lobbies against Christianity being favored in public schools in the United States and against other forms of favoritism for Christianity by the state (but does not lobby against Judaism in Israel).

The ADL played an ongoing role in censoring books they disagreed with including the Shakespearian play the “Merchant of Venice”.[13]

The ADL for a long time opposed recognition of the Armenian Genocide that took place 1915-1917 since this could negatively affect the situation for Jews in Turkey and Israeli-Turkish relations. Turkey was one of Israel’s few regional allies. The ADL reversed their official position in 2007 after a public outcry but still refused to support a resolution in Congress formally acknowledging the Armenian genocide.[14]

Even some Jews have criticized the ADL for hypocrisy, for false charges of antisemitism for political purposes, and for attacking some Jews with not politically correct opinions. Even Jewish community leaders with dissenting views have been stated to fear speaking out lest the ADL accuse them of some crime against the Jewish people. The ADL has also been accused of trying to scare rich Jews with false threats (such as from American Christians) in order to receive large donations. The criticisms against Christians have been seen as instead being harmful to Jewish interests since Christian Zionists often support neoconservatism.[15][16]

In 2013, the ADL told YouTube (colloquially known as JewTube) to disable PressTV’s YouTube account which also occurred.[17]

In 2014, the ADL has been accused of contributing to false leaflets stating that Jews in the Ukraine must register with a non-existent government agency.[18][19]

In addition to earlier mentioned information sharing the ADL has ties with police across the country through its LEARN program (Law Enforcement Agency Resource Network) in which it trains police in dealing with extremist groups and hate crimes.[3]

Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month is a month to celebrate and pay tribute to the contributions generations of Asian/Pacific Americans have made to American history, society and culture.

Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month originated in 1978 when Congress passed Pub. L. 95-419 (PDF, 63KB). This law directed the President to issue a proclamation designating the week beginning on May 4, 1979 as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week.On March 28, 1979, President Carter issued Presidential Proclamation 4650. In this proclamation, President Carter spoke of the significant role Asian/Pacific Americans have played in the creation of a dynamic and pluralistic American society with their contributions to the sciences, arts, industry, government and commerce.

Over the next ten years, Presidents Carter, Reagan and George H.W. Bush continued to annually issue proclamations designating a week in May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week.

In 1990, Congress passed Pub. L. 101-283 (PDF, 91KB) which amended Pub. L. 95-419. Pub. L. 101-283 requested the President to issue a proclamation which expanded the observance of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week to a month in May 1990. This law called on the people of the United States to observe Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month with appropriate ceremonies, programs and activities. President George H.W. Bush issued Presidential Proclamation 6130 on May 7, 1990 designating May 1990 as the first Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.

The following year, Pub. L. 102-42 (PDF, 125KB) was passed unanimously by Congress and signed by President George H.W. Bush on May 14, 1991. This law requested that the President proclaim May 1991 and May 1992 as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Months. This law also recognized the significance of May 7th and May 10th in the history of Asian/Pacific Americans. May 7, 1843 is the date on which the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States while on May 10, 1869 the first transcontinental railroad in the United States was completed with significant contributions from Chinese pioneers. In 1992, Congress passed Pub. L. 102-450 (PDF, 204KB) which permanently designated May of each year as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.

Pursuant to Pub. L. 102-450 Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama have annually issued proclamations designating May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Heritage Month.

The public laws between which designate a week or month in May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Heritage Week or Month are also available in the United States Statutes at Large. The specific citations are as follows:

Presidential Proclamations and Executive Orders have been used by presidents to rule on substantive issues of law; to administrate the executive branch of government; and to make general announcements to the public. These general announcements which exhort the public to observe a holiday such as Thanksgiving or honor a particular group of citizens as in National Black History Month are usually issued in the form of a Presidential Proclamation. On many occasions Congress will pass a law specifically requesting the President to take certain action such as proclaiming the recognition of a particular group of citizens as Jewish or Hispanic Americans.

Listed below are links to the Presidential Proclamations for Asian/Pacific Heritage Week or Month along with the citations to the Code of Federal Regulations or the Federal Register, the official publications for Presidential Proclamations. Beginning with his 2009 Proclamation, President Obama has expanded the commemoration to include Pacific Islanders and issues his proclamation in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

Presidential Proclamations for the annual observances of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week, Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month can be browsed through American Presidency Project by selecting the year and clicking on the Display button.

Presidential proclamations as well as Presidential statements, messages, remarks for Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month can be searched from the Government Printing Offices Advanced Search page in the collections for the Code of Federal Regulations, the Compilation of Presidential Documents and the Federal Register.

Soul Food Shabbat: How to Celebrate Black History Month …

Posted By on May 25, 2016

Black-eyed pea hummus. Peach kugel. Matzah-meal fried chicken. These are no ordinary Jewish food mashups; theyre a blend of specific traditions and flavors, dredged and deep fried in African American and Jewish tradition.

Culinary historian and Jewish educator, Michael Twitty, calls his way of cooking Jewish food Afro-Ashkefardi, a cuisine that reflects his love of being both African American and Jewish.

If youre interested in learning more about Twittys relationships to Judaism, African-American heritage, foods, and faith, check out his articles in My Jewish Learnings Jewish&,a blog by Bechol Lashon, which gives voice to the racial, ethnic and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience.

In honor of Black History Month, we thought it would be the perfect time to celebrate the deliciousness that Jewish African American cooks like Twitty bring to the table.

Blacks and Jews are the only peoples I know who use food to talk about their past while they eat it, said Twitty in a recent interview with the Washington Post.

Other Black Jewish figures were featured this month at Tablet, in a three-part series called Black Jews You Should Know, and theThe New York Public Library, which curatedafantastic collection of photographs, recordings, books and other works by Black Jews.

Jewish-American food, like African-American food, is in so many ways influenced by the culinary traditions that people brought with them here. Theyre similar in that these foodswhether its babka or barbecue, matzah ball soup or fried chickenall speak to the past as edible expressions of diaspora.

With just a few days left of African American History Month, try cooking a soul food Shabbat this week! Michaels Kosher Soul Shabbat is a great place to get started. Here are a few of our other favorites from his blog, and beyond.

Recipes by Michael Twitty:

Black Eyed-Pea Hummus

West African Brisket

Red Soup with Brisket and Creole Matzoh Balls

Cornbread Kush (the precursor to modern cornbread stuffing)

Yiddishe Rebenes

Other Southern-Inspired classics:

Sweet Potato Challah

Citrus Collards with Raisins (vegetarian, by Afro-Vegan author, Chef Bryant Terry)

Anti-Semite Ken OKeefe On A U.S. Speaking Tour – ADL …

Posted By on May 20, 2016

Ken OKeefe, an anti-Zionist ex-Marine and anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist with a substantial following on YouTube, is currently on a national tour of the United States titled F-ck the USSA/TSA/ Homeland Security Tour. He is scheduled to visit cities all over the U.S., as well as Canada.

OKeefe proudly announced that he would embark on this tour, taking Amtrak instead of flying. In announcing the tour, he claimed that the security polices of the TSA and Homeland Security violate peoples rights by ordering them to undergo a body scan, which he termed radiation crap. However, while ostensibly focused on security policies, his talks mostly promote anti-Semitic and anti-Israel themes.

Ken OKeefe

For example, at a talk in Berkeley, California, on March 17, hosted by the conspiracy theorist group 9-11Truth.org, OKeefe promoted a vast array of conspiracy theories vilifying Jews and Israel. He alleged that a small group of individualslater referred to as Jewish bankerscontrols the worlds money. He called these individuals traitors, psychopaths, sociopaths, pedophiles and otherwise corrupt, immoral, lacking in empathy people who bought everything and everyone that can be bought.

He went on to say that Jews control the media and Hollywood. He also claimed that Israel operates within Talmudic dictates and alleged that the Talmud allows for Jews to rape non-Jewish three-year-old girls.

Later, when talking about Israels 1967 accidental attack on an American ship, the U.S.S. Liberty, OKeefe asserted that Israel can do anything with impunity. He added, They even abduct, torture, have sex with and ritually sacrifice young children. He also promoted the conspiracy theory that Israel would take the Samson option, and exterminate the world if it feels that its existence is threatened.

Earlier in the week, at a program in San Diego, also hosted by the 9-11Truth.org, OKeefe expounded on similar anti-Semitic themes. He claimed that Israel and Mossad were behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks. OKeefes tour continues into the end of April, and he has stated that he plans to reach 17 cities across the U.S. and into Canada.

In 2014, OKeefe attended Irans New Horizon Conference, which drew anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers from the U.S. and other parts of the world. He has also appeared on Press TV, the anti-Semitic English language station run by Iran, and has written articles for Veterans Today, an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented website.

OKeefe has been an anti-Israel activist for many years. His YouTube videos, some of which have garnered hundreds of thousands of views, feature anti-Jewish and anti-Israel themes. He supports the Palestinian cause and has claimed both Irish and Palestinian citizenship. He was on a flotilla in 2010 that was stopped by Israel before the ship made it to Gaza. A number of activists on that ship were killed by Israeli armed forces and OKeefe was arrested and deported. In addition, he was on a flotilla that entered Gaza in 2008. He was also jailed by Israeli authorities in 2004 when he attempted to enter the Gaza Strip to discuss with Palestinian representatives his proposed plan to bring 10,000 activists to the West Bank andGaza.

As OKeefe travels the country, it is likely that he will continue to promote virulent anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to his audiences. The sponsors of his talks often tout him as a peace activist and ignore his anti-Semitism. In some cases, they have been receptive to his anti-Semitic tropes, as they were in Berkeley, and even applauded his rhetoric.

American Front or its allies in the Confederate Hammerskins may have been responsible for fifteen Nazi banners found flying from freeway overpasses around Orlando, Florida, over the weekend of September 23, 2006. The flags commemorated Global Aryan Solidarity Day, planned to coincide with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Lynch still has close ties to white supremacists in the Orlando area.

American Front led a nationwide rally December 9, 2006, on behalf of incarcerated members of The Order, a 1980s white supremacist terrorist group. While the largest gathering occurred in southern California, several banners describing Order members as prisoners of war were found around Orlando and Maitland.

American Nazis The American Nazis were a long-standing but low-profile white supremacist group based in New Port Richey that drew attention following a standoff with Pasco County deputies the night after a woman and a friend of her son were attacked with a knife in their home in New Port Richey on March 23, 2006. John A. Ditullio was arrested wearing a red American Nazis t-shirt the morning after the attack and was indicted in Pasco County, in October 2006 on first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder charges for allegedly stabbing the woman and fatally stabbing the teenaged friend of her son.

Brian Zero Buckley, 44, the alleged leader of the American Nazis, was convicted on October 12, 2006, of burglarizing the same home in March 2006. Buckley sports a racist acronym tattoo on his forehead, ANFFAN, which stands for American Nazi Forever, Forever American Nazi.

Combat 18 Josh Steever, a racist skinhead who led a small band of Combat 18 skinheads in Spring, Texas, moved in late 2005 to south Florida where joined up with a small crew of skinheads, most likely also a part of Combat 18. Shortly after his move, a Web site for Floridas chapter of Combat 18 appeared on the Internet. Steever, well-known for his forehead tattoo of the word racist, served a short stint in a Texas jail for attacking someone with an axe handle. In 2006, Steever moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he started a small unit of Combat 18 before being arrested for threatening to blow up a school in Newark, California, while visiting his girlfriend.

Confederate Hammerskins (CHS) This regional branch of the Hammerskin Nation, the largest racist skinhead group in the nation, is comprised of members primarily from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. The Florida contingent is allegedly led by Richard Richie Myers of Orlando.

The Hammerskins are particularly active in organizing white power music concerts for racist skinheads, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists.

March 17, 2006: CHS hosted about 100 people on private property in the Ocala National Forest at a white power rock concert that featured several bands, including Attack, Definite Hate, Platoon 14, Red, White & Black, Youngblood, and Youngland. Notable attendees included Randal Lee Krager, leader of the racist skinhead organization Volksfront, based in Portland, Oregon, and David Gletty, who at the time was the leader of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement unit in Orlando.

March 19, 2005: CHS hosted a St. Patricks Day concert in Ocala. About 75 racists attended the gathering.

March 13, 2004: In conjunction with the now-defunct Minneapolis-based white power music company Panzerfaust Records, the Florida CHS organized a St. Patricks Day white power concert in Jacksonville.. Approximately 100 white supremacists attended the event. White supremacist organizations represented included the National Alliance, Aryan Nations, National Socialist Movement and Church of the Sons of Yahweh.

The Hated This racist skinhead group is based primarily in Gainesville and Jacksonville, Florida, but has a few members in New Jersey and Massachusetts. The Hated have about 30 members and associates, ranging in age from 18 to 28. The group’s symbol is a white fist with the word Hated written in white and black letters above the fist, which in some cases is tattooed on members bodies.

January 2005: The Hated hosted a white power rock concert in Jacksonville, which was attended by several Hammerskins and other racist skinheads.

January 2004: Two members of The Hated, Eddie F. Demaire III and Troy Stokes, both from Florida, were arrested in New Jersey, charged with possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number. Police discovered a sawed-off shotgun with a scratched-off identification number and a knife with a blade over 3 inches inside their truck. Both men pled no contest to the charges.

In last few years, the SFAA has been very active, both in hosting events and supporting those of other groups. In September 2003, in line with their anti-immigrant and xenophobic agenda, SFAA joined about two dozen white supremacists in Immokalee, Florida, in an anti-immigrant protest. SFAA also participated in an anti-Israel rally at the University of Florida campus in Gainesville on November 9, 2002, sponsored by White Revolution. In addition, it hosted a South Florida Aryan White Pride Day on December 1, 2001, at White City Park in Ft. Pierce, Florida. SFAA was joined by members of the Florida ORION Knights of the KKK holding signs that read Illegal Immigration Equals Terrorism.

Vinlanders Social Club (VSC) The Vinlanders Social Club, also referred to as the Vinlanders, is a large racist skinhead umbrella organization based primarily in the Midwest and Northeast. There are a few members in Florida, including Robert Smith of American Front, as well as Florida State Skinhead Jody Lee Mathis, formerly of the Confederate Hammerskins, and Tommy South, previously involved with various Klan organizations.

Jewish American Heritage Month 2016

Posted By on May 11, 2016

May is Jewish American Heritage Month On April 20, 2006, President George W. Bush proclaimed that May would be Jewish American Heritage Month. The announcement was the crowning achievement in an effort by the Jewish Museum of Florida and South Florida Jewish community leaders that resulted in resolutions introduced by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida and Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania urging the president to proclaim a month that would recognize the more than 350-year history of Jewish contributions to American culture. The resolutions passed unanimously, first in the House of Representatives in December 2005 and later in the Senate in February 2006.

The month of May was chosen due to the highly successful celebration of the 350th Anniversary of American Jewish History in May 2004, which was organized by the Commission for Commemorating 350 Years of American Jewish History. This coalition was composed of the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, the American Jewish Historical Society, the Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration.

This site presents only a sample of the digital and physical holdings related to Jewish American heritage available from the Library of Congress and other participating agencies.

Leading the way in implementation of the annual celebration is the Jewish American Heritage Month Coalition, formed in March 2007 and convened by United Jewish Communities, the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives and the American Jewish Historical Society.

The Law Library of Congress has compiled guides to commemorative observations, including a comprehensive inventory of the Public Laws, Presidential Proclamations and congressional resolutions related to Jewish American Heritage Month.

This Web portal is a collaborative project of the Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The contents of this site highlight only a small portion of the physical and digital holdings of the participating partners.

Extremism in Florida – Anti-Defamation League – ADL

Press Release – ADL

New York, NY, October 25, 2011 Growing connections, overlapping cultures and increasing crossover between outlaw motorcycle gangs and white supremacist groups have created a disturbing new trend the formation of explicitly white supremacist biker gangs, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

In a new report, Bigots on Bikes: The Growing Links between White Supremacists and Biker Gangs, ADL found that increased social and criminal connections between the two movements have led to the formation of these gangs, which are either independently operated or subsidiaries of larger white supremacist groups.

The most common, and visually obvious, pathways between the two groups can be found in their shared use of symbols from Nazi Germany, such as swastikas, SS lightning bolts, and Nazi war eagles. The groups also share a similar language, especially when discussing brotherhood and loyalty, as well as similar rituals, especially those related to recruitment and orientation. Thus, as subcultural overlaps between the two movements have increased, actual connections between them have also increased, manifesting themselves both in crossover membership as well as in new biker groups that are explicitly white supremacist.

“Though they are still small, the appearance of these groups is cause for concern,” said Deborah Lauter, ADL Civil Rights Director. “The white supremacist movement and the outlaw biker movement both engage in considerable violence and criminal activity. The more people from the two movements who cooperate and join forces, the more dangerous both movements can become.”

These white supremacist biker gangs are primarily located in the Sunbelt Region (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona and California) and the Midwest (Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri). The following are some examples of these gangs:

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world’s leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

A final comment for the day directed at our trolls.

You’re right. We’re a bunch of uneducated, racist bigotted bogans.

Not by definition of course, but because you say so.

How wrong of us to use islamic doctrine as reasoning for our concerns. How wrong it is to back this up by presenting examples of how it has influenced people to behave. We are indeed, just as bad as the terrorists, simply for finding solace in a facebook page.

Get real.

The days of trying to reason with you are finished. Unlike your ridiculous terrorist-loving pages, we’ve many times provided you with the freedom to speak. We’ve many times presented points of views, facts, examples, and logical reasoning behind our cause, and each time has been responded with ignorance, lies, and hypocrisy.

Accordingly, we will just ban you as we see you. Clearly, there is no opportunity to reason with you.

We get that we are racist (by your definition), even though what we oppose is a religion, not a race.

We get that we are uneducated, bigotted bogans, despite you having proven this in yourself by calling us racists, defending terrorism, and demonstrating that you either don’t know what you’re talking about, or you’re a muslim engaging in takiya.

If you’re not a muslim and sincerely find it hard to believe us, consider buying a quran. Then google “allah akbar” and treat yourself to the many beheadings, stonings, burnings, hangings, and other islamic acts readily available on the internet.

We make no apology for our existence, our justified concerns, and our opposition to islam. We do not like it, and we don’t want it to have any influence in our lives.

We do not care what you or your handful of tree-hugging cheese appreciating hippie friends that you invited here to troll & provide moral support, think.

We care about preserving the great Australian way of life, ahead of backward, barbaric ideology. Do please forgive us for that.

That moral high-ground you think you occupy, doesn’t even exist.
