The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday revealed its list of the 10 most influential and active anti-Israel groups in the United States.
“While there are hundreds of groups that organize and participate in various anti-Israel activities, we have identified the largest and most well-coordinated anti-Israel groups,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's national director. “These groups are not promoting peace, they are spreading propaganda to assault Israel’s legitimacy. We want Americans to know who these groups are and what it is they really stand for, which is to delegitimize the Jewish state.”
The top 10 anti-Israel groups, as identified by ADL, are:
- Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER)
- Council on American-Islamic Relations
- Friends of Sabeel-North America
- If Americans Knew
- International Solidarity Movement
- Jewish Voice for Peace
- Muslim American Society
- Students for Justice in Palestine
- U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
“These groups demonize Israel through various public campaigns. Their messages are one-sided and fail to take the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into account,” said Foxman. “They unfairly attack Israel while ignoring Palestinian terrorism and incitement. They apply a different standard to Israel than other countries, condemning it for implementing policies to protect its citizens.”
