ADL Partners with CODOH?

We never expected—who would have thought it?—that Abraham Foxman and the ADL would agree to partner with CODOH to demonstrate publicly how ADL is committed to the suppression and censorship of language which addresses issues that ADL does not want to be addressed?

When you read the ADL “Alert” below, you will be amazed. Who would ever have thought that CODOH and ADL could have collaborated in such a productive way?


College Newspaper Website Removes Holocaust Denial Ad
In Response to ADL Alert

Date: October 26, 2010

ADL asked a local college newspaper to remove an ad surreptitiously placed by Holocaust Denier Bradley Smith.

In a letter to the editor-in-chief, ADL explained that Holocaust denial is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that alleges that Jews invented a myth that six million Jews were killed by Nazis during World War II. The letter stated that while the campus newspaper has the right to publish any advertisement it wishes, it is not obligated to accept every ad it receives.

The editor-in-chief responded that the ad would be removed immediately and that the newspaper will do everything possible to prevent this type of ad from appearing in the future.
Fighting Holocaust Denial in Campus Newspaper Advertisements: A Manual for Action is provided to Hillels, student groups and campus newspapers.


For the record: this ADL Alert hides the name of the “college” in which our ad was running—University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). ADL does not reveal the text of the ad. It reads in full: “Confessions of a Holocaust Revisionist.” ADL uses the word “surreptitiously” falsely. The ad was run with a signed contract and payment in full ($100).

There is not a word in this ADL Alert that addresses the text of Confessions itself. And one cannot understand from the ADL alert that the “Manual for Action” provided to Hillels, student groups and campus newspapers is obsessed with our Campus Campaign and dedicated to the mischaracterization, suppression, and censorship of revisionist arguments about one historical question.

well it really is a problem with people who i assume are too busy to think for themselves. I dont get very far in casual conversation if the situation arises.on intwernet at least,there allways seems to be one adl or staunch defendwer of the lie.commonly the three actions are used,name calling insulting or source is claimed false and never the 4 th which is investigate it oneself,I dont thin it is getting very far in amelica,and as for israeli concession of no new construvction on west bank for 90 days we give them 30 brand new top of the line fighters which they dont pay for.Amelikans arer also unaware of the blackmail andoutrageous financeing we give to them as wellalso the swidles as a matter of course and spying ,and murders such as usn liberty.
