Direct Mail Fundraising Material - ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE

November 18, 2016 ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE direct mail fundraising appeal

The Anti-Defamation League has positioned itself to exert influence on behalf of Israel across America and to monitor global trends. It maintains 30 regional offices coast-to-coast that consume over half of its budget.

While the group has long claimed its core mission is to fight anti-Semitism and bigotry, the ADLís secrecy, use of undercover investigators, and covert action on behalf of Israel are now a matter of public record. The Leagueís long and ultimately successful attempt to establish a formal relationship with the Federal Bureau of Investigation has left a trail of records shedding light on the organizationís determination to undermine Arab organizations and diplomats, civil society organizations working for Palestinian rights and even those that worked against apartheid South African when that country was a major Israeli ally.

See the Israel Lobby Archive's extensive collection of ADL material:

For a perspective on how the ADL undermines civil rights (including its support for Japanese-American internment during WWII, see the report ADL's Challenge to Pro-Peace and Justice Groups. See FBI files reveal Anti-Defamation League spied on Arab students for a case study in the groups infiltration and subversion tactics.

Although the ADL spends a substantial amount of its financial resources advancing Israel, realizing this is no longer a popular sell, the organization focuses solely on anti-Semitism in its fundraising materials, using alarming images of marginalized extremist groups and Internet crank postings to stir the fear it needs to fund its opaque Israel advancement programs.
