ADL: Tools to Counter Misinfo

Experts and resources available to counter misinformation surrounding local “Israeli Apartheid Month”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has experts and resources available on Israeli Apartheid Month, an anti-Israel campaign scheduled to take place at a series of events in Denver and Boulder from March 6 to March 25, 2011.

Israeli Apartheid Month events feature extreme anti-Israel rhetoric, including accusations that Israel is a racist “apartheid state,” calls for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaigns against the Jewish State, and allegations that Israel is committing war crimes and genocide against the Palestinian people.  In previous years, events in other cities have featured offensive Holocaust analogies, expressions of support for Hamas and other messages dedicated to delegitimizing and demonizing the Jewish state.

ADL has available resources for people who may encounter anti-Israel protests or events, and for those who wish to learn more about the inappropriate use of the term ‘apartheid’ when referring to Israel:

  • Israel: A Guide for Activists: Provides key information on Israel, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and answers to misstatements about the conflict.

ADL has also launched a new Facebook page, “Israel is NOT an Apartheid State,” a resource for updated information and a forum for students and others to express their views.

For more information call the ADL offices in Boulder (303-449-2607) or Denver (303-830-7177).

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world’s leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
