ADL TO BUILD SILICON VALLEY CENTER TO MONITOR & FIGHT “CYBERHATE” | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


ADL TO BUILD SILICON VALLEY CENTER TO MONITOR & FIGHT “CYBERHATE”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has announced that it will build a “a state-of-the-art command center in Silicon Valley” to monitor and fight anything online that it determines is “hate.”

The ADL is known for attacking individuals who criticize Israel as allegedly “anti-Semitic.” Its website states: “ADL has always been a strong voice for Israel.”

Critics of the organization have noted that its fundraising strategy relies on finding “anti-Semitism” and charge that it often exaggerates this threat.

A former Israeli minister stated that Israel and its partisans often use the charge of anti-Semitism against those who speak discuss Israel’s oppression of Palestinians: “It’s a trick, we always use it.” The ADL was the initiator of hate crimes legislation in the United States, launching this campaign in 1981.

ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt announced the new center on March 12 at a music festival in Austin, Texas. Accompanying him was Texas Tribune Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith.

According to the ADL’s press release on the project, the new center “will write reports, compile data, and “provide insights to government and policy makers.” The center will use the “best-in-class technology,” according to Greenblatt.

“This is a natural extension of the cyber hate work ADL has been doing for decades,” Greenblatt said, “and builds on the new presence we established last year in the Valley to collaborate even closer on the threat with the tech industry.”

The Omidyar Network is providing seed funding for the project. According to its website, Omidyar Network is a “philanthropic investment firm” that works to “catalyze economic and social change.” Founded by Ebay creator Pierre Omidyar, the organization has dispersed over a billion dollars since its inception in 2004.

According to the ADL release, “The new center will leverage ADL’s long-standing relationships with law enforcement.“ It will evaluate artificial intelligence, big data, augmented/virtual reality, and other technologies as potential tools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ADL has always gone after any whisper of any logical criticism of the actions of the Israeli government; this center will simply give it the state of the art equipment with which to publicly crucify any individual - or organisation - which reasonably, and logically, criticises specific policies adopted by the Israeli government, like the deliberate targeting of Palestinian children in the 2014 Israeli attack, Operation Protective Edge.

As reported at the International Middle East Center in April of 2015:

A new report by Defense for Children International-Palestine, titled ‘Operation Protective Edge: A War Waged On Gaza’s Children’, has displayed documented events proving that that Israel deliberately murdered Palestinian children during its last offensive on the Gaza Strip, this past summer.According to the report, the number of children killed in the last summer offensive on Gaza hit 535, a majority of them under the age 12. Another 3,400 children were injured – over 1,000 maimed for life. They need vital medical care unavailable because of Israel’s lawless siege – ongoing aggression by any standard with full US-led Western support.

I am reasonably certain that after this report was released, the ADL went after this report with whatever geopolitical, electronic, and judicial tools they had to hand, even though the information presented was incontrovertible.

That's... precisely what the ADL does, and will continue to do, with the establishment of this center.

This report had nothing to do with "hate"; it had everything to do with logic, numbers, and statistics, and a continued Israeli serial genocide against Palestinian children.

And please remember: there are Israeli rabbis and public figures and institutions who advocate for the complete extermination of the Palestinian people:

Israel's former Chief Rabbi urges the genocide of Palestinians

"Genocide is permissible" muses Times of Israel, promptly retracts

And finally, in images you cannot unsee:
