We are pleased that the ADL has noticed that If Americans Knew is influencing the debate on Israel


Alison Weir, Executive Director

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) recently released a report on the top 10 “anti-Israel” organizations affecting the mainstream discourse in the United States. We are pleased to announce that  If Americans Knew is in this elite group of principled organizations.

Despite its alleged mission “to secure justice and fair treatment to all” the ADL (sometimes pointedly referred to as “the Arab Defamation League”) has a record of supporting Israel’s most egregious human rights violations and extremist leaders and of attacking anyone who speaks up on behalf of Palestinian rights. It recently joined the bigots who opposed the building of a New York Muslim Community Center and has a history of illegal spying against American citizens.

We are pleased that the ADL has noticed that If Americans Knew is influencing the debate on Israel, that our materials are widely circulated, and that Alison Weir is a frequent speaker at campuses and elsewhere around the country. And we are proud to be in such good company.

Alison has long been on the ADL’s list of the top five individuals in the country opposing Israeli injustice, the only non-Arab/Muslim on the list.

Your work and donations are the reason that we are able to have such a sizable impact — and your continued efforts will allow us to do even more.

Please consider making a donation, ordering materials, or taking another action today!

As the ADL acknowledges in its report, the paradigm is shifting — more and more Americans are paying attention, receptive to factual information, and willing to work for justice. Please help us continue to help build this powerful movement for justice.

(As you know, criticism of Israel does not constitute anti-Semitism. While our organization is focused on Israel-Palestine, we oppose injustice and discrimination wherever it is found and whoever the perpetrator. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case for the ADL.)

Debbie Menon is an independent writer based in Dubai. Her main focus are the US-Mid- East Conflicts. Her writing has been featured in many print and online publications. Her writing reflects the incredible resilience, almost superhuman steadfastness of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, who are now facing the prospect of a final round of ethnic cleansing. She is committed to exposing Israel's Lobbies' control of ‘U.S. Middle East Policy. Control’ which amounts to treason by the Zionist lobbies in America and its stooges in Congress, and that guarantees there can never be a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only catastrophe for all, in the region and the world. Her mission is to inform and educate internet viewers seeking unfiltered information about real events on issues of the US/Middle East conflicts that are unreported, underreported, or distorted in the American media. PS: For those of her detractors that think she is being selective and even “one-sided,” tough, that is the point of her work, to present an alternative view and interpretation of the US-Israel-Middle East conflict, that has been completely ignored in mainstream discourse. The purpose is to look at the current reality from a different and critical perspective, not to simply rehash the pro-US/Israel perspective, smoke and mirrors that has been allowed to utterly and completely dominate Mainstream discourse.
