The ADL's latest report THE 2013 TOP TEN ANTI-ISRAEL GROUPS IN THE U.S notes that "Hundreds of anti-Israel groups operate in the United States today... the domestic anti-Israel movement has grown significantly..."
The ADL 2013 top ten list featured what they dubbed the "worst of the worst" groups whose leaders seek to "convince the leaders of tomorrow that Israel is the worst violator of international human rights and should be treated as a pariah." These groups have the ability to "successfully attract a new audience" and have "influence on the mainstream public debate about Israel. Includes publishing anti-Israel opinion pieces in newspapers, blogs and other media..." The ADL added that these group's activity "transcends the bounds of legitimate policy critique."
The report adds "These groups are fixated on delegitimizing Israel and convincing the American public the Israel is an international villain that deserves to be ostracized and isolated... They successfully garner support by promoting their work on social media, publishing op-eds in local and national newspapers and appearing on television and radio stations... The interactions and coordination among these groups play a critical role in advancing a hostile anti-Israel narrative and expanding the anti-Israel network in the United States."
Following is a list of the ten groups in alphabetical order along with links and excerpts from their responses regarding their inclusion on the list. (where available).
Act Now to Stop War and End Racism responded here.
American Muslims for Palestine issued a press release which stated, in part, "Naming is proof AMP's work effective and hitting the mark... In trying to defame us, the ADL actually is recognizing the impact of our work in educating the American public about Israel's occupation of the Palestinian people," said Kristin Szremski, AMP's national director of media and communications. "Of course we provide training about recognizing and exposing Zionist organizations, because Zionism is racist and has at its core the call for the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Palestine. The American public deserves to know the truth."
CODEPINK: Women for Peace
Friends of Sabeel-North America -Voice of Palestinian Christians stated, in part, "We are saddened to be considered a threat. The ADL, founded in 1913 "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all", should be our natural ally in the struggle for human rights, not an opponent. ADL leadership takes the untenable position that criticism of Israeli government policies equates to anti-Semitism. However, it is the blatant injustice and brutality of occupation, not our criticism of Israeli policies, that are undermining support for Israel and threatening its future..."
If Americans Knew/Council for the National Interest stated, in part, "...I propose that you give If Americans Knew a nickel of each dollar you raise. After all, you use our work to raise this money. You name me among the five most "anti-Israel" (i.e. pro human rights for all) individuals in America. You used our billboard image to illustrate your report on the ten organizations your donors should be most terrified of, and put it at the very top of your home page. I further propose that you provide a similar amount for each of the other nine organizations whose work you use (or, more accurately, distort) to raise your vast sums of money..."
Jewish Voice for Peace stated, in part, "Today the ADL put out its revised list of top ten U.S. anti-Israel groups, and JVP is included among them. Much of the material is taken from the longer report the ADL put out about JVP in August, so we are re-posting here our statement in response then. More coming soon! The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization well-known for over-reaching in its zeal to defend Israeli policies at all costs, released a report in July about Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) which was apparently intended to be an expose of JVP's mission, activities and goals. We appreciate the ADL’s recognition of our growing strength, especially among younger Jews. However, we question the right of the ADL to declare a monopoly on Jewish values. We are most proud to be a home for the growing number of Jewish Americans who subscribe to JVP’s principles, inspired by Jewish tradition, of supporting equality, human rights and freedom for all the people of Israel and Palestine..."
The Muslim Public Affairs Council asked 'When did Working for Peace Become Anti-Israel?' "This week, the Anti-Defamation League listed the Muslim Public Affairs Council as one of the top ten anti-Israel groups in the nation. MPAC’s inclusion on the list is baseless and is not only ineffective, but counterproductive to building an interfaith base supporting the Middle East peace process. In a letter to the leadership of the ADL, we wrote, 'The fact that any critical evaluation of Israeli policy, whether by MPAC or any other party, is deemed by ADL as 'anti-Israel activity' and 'involvement in anti-Israel campaigns' is an infringement of freedom of speech."
Neturei Karta- Jews United Against Zionism
Students for Justice in Palestine:
(I couldn't find a 2013 response, but here is their response from 2010.)
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation wrote "ADL Chooses Us Again":
"Help Us Take Our Work for Palestinian Rights Even Further! We were honored to learn earlier this week that we once again have been recognized by the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) as one of "the most significant players" in the United States organizing against U.S. support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and for freedom, justice, and equality for all. We were particularly pleased with why the ADL chose to include us in their so-called "Anti-Israel" list again, citing our role in empowering our member groups. From the report: the organization "coordinates and promotes initiatives organized by its local member groups...and "provides the platform for its member groups to strategize and interact with each other." We are so grateful to be recognized for our ability to facilitate and promote collaboration nationwide on efforts to change U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel. Will you help us to continue providing resources for our coalition members' boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaigns in order to end all U.S. support for Israel's occupation and apartheid policies toward Palestinians?"Regarding the growth of the anti-Israel movement, The ADL's 2010 report stated, in part,
"While Israel and its policies vis-a-vis the Palestinians have been scrutinized since the creation of the Jewish State, the recent intensification of the American anti-Israel movement can be specifically attributed to two key factors:
- The strategy of the anti-Israel movement to point to the U.S.'s alliance with Israel as a primary factor motivating the American-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This has encouraged many in the anti-war movement to adopt a core anti-Israel position and condemn the special relationship between Israel and the U.S. In addition, the anti-war movement has forged an alliance with Muslim and Arab community groups seeking to cast Israel as anathema to American interests, which had led to increased coordination and greater participation in anti-Israel activity.
- The advent and widespread popularity of user-generated content, including various social networking sites and blogs, which have provided anti-Israel individuals with the space to express and promote their views. These new media outlets have created a unique opportunity for like-minded individuals and groups to mobilize, coordinate and spread their campaigns and messages to larger audiences, thereby de-legitimizing Israel with greater ease."
