Israel's PR representative, the Anti-Defamation League, accuses the political right in western nations of moving toward increased "violent radicalization." Yet, that description applies best to the behavior of Israel toward the "Free Gaza" flotilla this past week.

As a result of mounting criticism of Israel's bombardment and quarantine of Gaza, Israeli leaders now portray Israel's strong critics as potentially violent terrorist sympathizers and insist that Israel's response be correspondingly severe.

Last December, Diaspora Foreign Minister Yuli Edelstein said “to be anti-Israel is to be anti-Semitic.” Foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman agreed that strong criticism of Israel is anti-Semitism: cooperation with terrorists who desire the destruction of the Jewish state. This week Lieberman portrayed the "Free Gaza" flotilla as "violent propaganda."

Demonization of critics is a beginning that leads Israel to extreme, unlawful, and—as we see in the slaying of nine peace activists—violent conclusions. If Israel's critics are potentially violent terrorists, then, according to Israel:

  • No place on earth should be safe for such threats to Israel's existence. Not Argentina, London, Dubai, or international waters. Israel continues Jewry's millennia-old claim that they deserve special rights since Jews are "God's chosen people" and have suffered more than any other. These rights now include Israel's transcendence over the national boundaries and international laws that govern other nations. Israel is above the charge of piracy that would be leveled against any other nation that stormed and seized a ship in international waters in peacetime. Israel has the right to blame those who violently oppose its takeover, being above international law which says crews who resist pirates are blameless.
  • Flotilla members who say they are concerned for the people of Gaza are really out to destroy Israel. Their ships probably contain weapons to aid Hamas. The cement and building materials they deliver are to build bunkers for Hamas. Such "peace activists" have no interest in the welfare of the Gazans, only their own anti-Semitic agenda. The flotilla contains only quasi-terrorists on the high seas. Israel is thus justified, as America's trusted ally in the war on terror, to board and seize their ships, using whatever possibly violent "counter-terrorism" measures are necessary.

ADL Brings Israel's Premises to the World

Ominously, the Anti-Defamation League, Israel's PR representative and official opponent of what it calls the global anti-Semitism "pandemic," is bringing to the western world the same dire suspicion (even paranoia) against critics of Israel. Increasingly, ADL and "ADL South," the Jewish Southern Poverty Law Center, portray critics of Zionism as using legitimate criticism only as a mask for the same virulent, Jew-destroying anti-Semitism that spawned the Holocaust. Yet ADL/SPLC are not content to vilify critics of the Jewish state. Their negative stereotyping extends to all in the Christian/conservative right who resist secular Judaism's pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-hate law agenda. That includes tea partiers, militia groups, and the whole evangelical right, whom they now portray (in their MIAC Missouri police document) as potentially violent domestic terrorists. ADL echoes Israel's justification of its attack on the peace flotilla. It says the flotilla exists "to lure the Israeli military onto the ship where many were waiting to attack them. It is deeply disturbing that the leaders of the flotilla and their sponsors were willing to engage in an elaborate sham as a pretext for ambushing and violently attacking Israeli military personnel." (May 31 “ADL Calls Flotilla to Gaza a Deliberate Provocation against Israel”)

Reality may be provided by Knesset member Hanin Zoabi (Balad) who participated in the flotilla. "It was clear from the size of the force that boarded the ship that the purpose was not only to stop this sail, but to cause the largest possible number of fatalities in order to stop such initiatives in the future."

What is really disturbing is the predictable sympathy of evangelical media to the transparently manipulative ADL/Israeli point of view. Although leadership of the religious right in America is widely aware of ADL's boast that it was behind creation and passage of the potentially Christian-persecuting federal hate crimes bill, evangelical oracle WorldNetDaily rushes to agree with ADL/Israel in this dispute. Through WND's Jerusalem-based mouthpiece to Mossad, Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily denigrates the "violent Gaza flotilla." It quotes the government of Israel, saying the peace activists had "clearly prepared their weapons in advance" in order to attack Israeli commandos.

Thus, it is not just 679 peace activists who were unlawfully attacked or threatened by Israel as terrorist sympathizers. ADL/Israel views critical, uncooperative humanity, floating in a sea of increasingly turbulent doubt and disapproval of Israel, as its enemies. As such, it is you and I who must also submit and be quiet - or face similar violence.

According to the demonstrated behavior of Israel this week, the whole world is now subject to its jurisdiction.

Breaking News

Hate crimes laws may make you a lawbreaker! Such laws, while claiming to promote tolerance, actually lead to the end of free speech! Powerful articles and NPN’s video exposé of hate crimes laws in Canada and the United States provide you with the vital tools necessary to combat this imminent threat to freedom. This video is especially important as acts of terrorism extend the power of "Big Brother" to monitor what you do, say, and think.

Read the latest news.

White House sources have revealed that President Trump regrets following the left-conciliating advice of his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner regarding police reform.
They say he has abandoned Kushner’s advice on this issue, returning to his previous assertion that “systemic racism” in American police is a virtual non-issue compared to the magnitude of protection and fair play which the vast majority of police provide all citizens.

17 December, 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - Trump Supports Jewish Claim: Christianity is Antisemitic.
President Trump’s recent Executive Order IS THE TEXT of the Jewish ADL’s “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act, S852, recently rejected by the US Senate for Committee consideration.

“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at if it starts to move forward.

18 May 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - Senate New Forum for “Equality” Bill Debate
Call the Congress Hotline at 1-202-224-3121 and ask for a Senator’s office. I suggest you say: “Please don’t vote for the “Equality Act” S788. It will help end free speech for Christians making them criminals if they criticize Homosexuality”.

01 May 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - “Equality” Bill Hastens Babylon the Great - Part Two
If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
