The Anti-Defamation Commission and “Click Against Hate,” Part 1 of 4
July 18, 2017 — 26 Comments
The Australian Anti-Defamation Commission (ADC) is the Australian equivalent of America’s Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Both organizations fall under the umbrella of B’nai B’rith International which holds NGO status at the United Nations. The stated mission of the ADC is to make Australia “a better place” by fighting “anti-Semitism and all forms of racism” and combatting “the defamation of the Jewish people and Israel.” Describing itself as a “harm prevention charity,” the ADC claims to be dedicated to “promoting tolerance, justice and multiculturalism.” But despite its pious pretentions to universal benevolence, the ADC, like countless other Jewish activist organizations around the world, exists to promote the ethnic interests of Jews. The “harm” this organization is determined to prevent is any harm to these perceived interests.
Regarding the plethora of Jewish activist organizations in the United States, the Jewish academic and journalist Adam Garfinkle has observed:
The main mass-membership advocacy organizations of American Jewry — B’nai B’rith and its Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, the National Conference of Jewish Federations, and the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations (a kind of steering group for the major organizations), to mention only a few — are not religious organizations but ethnic ones. It is not necessary to have any Jewish religious affiliation to be a member in good standing in these organizations, and their leaderships are composed mainly of people who are not religious or Jewishly learned Jews.
We need not go into foundational texts and statements of purpose on the question of origins, for the answer is simple enough: organizations like B’nai B’rith and the American Jewish Committee were created to lobby for particular Jewish interests. … In time, these and most other Jewish organizations became explicitly or implicitly Zionist, and thereafter existed to one degree or another to support, first, a Jewish home in Palestine, and then, after 1948, the security and prosperity of the State of Israel. In other words, all these organizations have depended, and still depend, on the validity of their serving parochial Jewish ethnic interests that are simultaneously distinct from the broader American interest but not related directly to religion. [Emphasis added]
Contrary to the propaganda put out by the ADC for non-Jewish consumption, the interests of Jews are not the same as those of the broader Australian community, particularly the White Australian community. While the ADC — whose motto is “Promoting Diversity” — pretends that all conflicting group interests can be reconciled through “education” and “mutual understanding,” the interests of different racial and religious groups are often fundamentally opposed and irreconcilable. The group evolutionary interests of White Australians are absolutely harmed by the mass importation of non-Whites into the country — compounded by ideological commitments by state and federal governments to “diversity” and “multiculturalism.”
Results from the 2016 Australian Census recently revealed that, for the first time, the country is receiving more migrants from Asia than Europe. In the past five years, China and India have been the largest sources of migrants, with China, India, the Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia now accounting for more foreign-born residents than the traditional sources of England, New Zealand and mainland Europe. In response to these figures, Melbourne’s thankfully failing Cultural Marxist newspaper The Age exulted that “Australia has reached a welcome tipping point.” Noting it had become “unrecognizable from the country portrayed in the 1966 census,” it celebrated the fact that Australia is now “more Asian, less Christian and more openly gay.”
The Daily Telegraph observed that “the incredible boom in Asian migration has changed the face of Sydney,” noting that in the past 25 years the percentage of overseas-born residents from China has risen “an incredible 500 per cent” to now make up 4.7 per cent of Sydney’s 4.8 million people, overtaking those born in England (3.1 percent). The latest census results also revealed the Muslim population of Australia has jumped 77 per cent in a decade to more than 600,000. The Australian noted that “If current trends continue, a majority Christian nation will almost certainly no longer exist come the next census in five years. Muslims and Hindus in Australia are themselves powered by immigration which has seen the share of Australians born overseas jump to a third.”
The question of why White Australians should welcome this rapid dilution of their genetic line and associated decline in political and cultural influence, is ignored, aside from the usual vague assurances that Australia’s “prosperity” is “fuelled by our changing cultural and ethnic make-up,” which has “enriched Australia economically and socially.” Ann Coulter once noted how if this sort of drastic change were legally imposed on any group other than Whites “it would be called genocide. Yet Whites are called racists merely for mentioning the fact that current immigration law is intentionally designed to reduce their percentage in the population.”
Reaching this demographic tipping point is the desired culmination of the Jewish-led abandonment of the White Australia policy. The former national editor of the Australian Jewish News, Dan Goldberg, proudly acknowledged that “Jews were instrumental in leading the crusade against the White Australia policy, a series of laws from 1901 to 1973 that restricted non-White immigration to Australia.” Australia’s current immigration and refugee policies, left unchecked, will ensure White Australians are progressively replaced in the country their ancestors created by groups with higher fertility and often an abiding antipathy to the founding stock. Whites are already minorities in several suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney and face declining living standards as crime grows exponentially, housing affordability deteriorates, infrastructure is strained, and taxes rise to fund burgeoning public spending directed disproportionately to migrants and refugees from the Middle East and Africa. Meanwhile, non-White groups that are economically self-sufficient, like the Chinese, increasingly dominate the best schools and universities, jeopardizing White Australians’ access to professional employment opportunities. They have also pushed home ownership out of reach for millions through buying up Australian real estate.
The ADC only recognizes that group interests can be irreconcilable when it comes to the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians. Here their ostensible commitment to “inclusion,” “diversity” and “multiculturalism” gives way to hardnosed biological realism, and the virtues of a “two-state solution” are trumpeted. This is disingenuous posturing, of course, because the ADC fully supports the ongoing expansion of Israeli settlements which will ensure that a “two-state solution” can never be achieved. The problem with Israel adopting the diverse, multicultural approach to nation-building so zealously advocated by the ADC for Australia (and the entire West) is that while it may sound “simple and fair,” it is actually “code for the destruction of Israel and its replacement with a majority Palestinian state.” The ADC insists that “It is naïve and dangerous to believe such a situation will not occur if Israel is taken over by a growing Palestinian population.” The organization has never condemned Israel’s Jews-only immigration policy as “racist” or “bigoted.”
…except in Israel
Instead, the ADC fiercely defends the ethno-nationalist state of Israel, and responds indignantly to all criticisms of the Israeli government, regardless of how merited. The organization is unabashedly committed to ensuring that Israel becomes more ethnically Jewish with each census. Its pro-Israel bias is so extreme that even the Jewish lawyer Michael Brull was moved to note that “The ADC is not an anti-racist group. It is a group that aims to peddle Israeli propaganda. Presumably, the think they might lose some of their credibility if they called themselves the ‘Pro-Defamation Commission That Supports the Israeli Government in Whatever it Does and Thinks Anyone Who Disagrees Exhibits Prejudice and Causes Anti-Semitism.’”
The ADC certainly cannot be accused of duel loyalty. When Israel was caught in 2010 using faked Australian passports to conduct covert operations around the world (including the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al Mabhouh), then Australian Foreign Minister, Stephen Smith, observed that “we do not regard these actions as the actions of a friend.” The ADC, in its singular refusal to condemn Israel’s actions (which seriously endangered all Australian passport-holders), tacitly pledged its undivided and unconditional allegiance to the Jewish state.

One searches in vain through the assorted propaganda on the ADC’s website for any acknowledgement that Israel was founded on terrorism and ethnic cleansing in which Palestinians were killed or violently driven from land they occupied for millennia to make way for Jewish settlers, or that Israel’s immigration policy openly discriminates against non-Jews, or that Israel bans marriage between Jews and non-Jews (which is subject to a two-year prison term), or that Israel has a two-tier political and legal system akin to the old South African apartheid. Instead one finds a statement defending Zionism as the “belief that Jewish people, like all other peoples, have the right to self-determination in a country of their own.” The mendacity of this statement should be clear to anyone. The ADC and other Jewish activist organizations in Australia, the United States, and throughout the West absolutely deny the right of White people anywhere to self-determination.
Every year the chairman of the ADC, Dvir Abramovich, hails the anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel. Despite it having one of the lowest asylum-seeker acceptance rates in the world, he extols the “Jewish state” for “putting out the welcome mat to refugees, traumatized survivors and victims of anti-Semitism” and for being “a thriving, free and tolerant state” that “comprises a multitude of ethnic and religious groups whose cultural and artistic diversity add to the country’s spirituality and creativity.” He naturally declines to mention that this diverse “multitude” are all Jews. He also neglects to mention that Israel’s treatment of African and other non-Jewish refugees is far from “welcoming” or “tolerant.” As the New York Times reported in 2015:
Israel’s policy toward African asylum seekers is to pressure them to self-deport or, as the former interior minister Eli Yishai put it, to “make their lives miserable” until they give up and let the government deport them. … A law passed in 2013 requires male African asylum seekers already in Israel to be detained automatically and indefinitely in the open detention center, Holov, in the Negev desert. The detainees are allowed to wander the desert between three obligatory check-ins every day, and they must remain in Holov overnight. If they miss a check-in, they can be transferred to the nearby prison. Their only alternative is to accept a sum of $3,500 to return to their country of origin, or a third country, usually Uganda or Rwanda, often without proper documentation to stay. … Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once warned that the arrival of African people poses a demographic risk to Israel: “If we don’t stop their entry, the problem that currently stands at 60,000 could grow to 600,000, and that threatens our existence as a Jewish and democratic state.”
Abramovich recently joined the chorus of Jewish leaders (and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) decrying the attempt by a democratically-elected President of the United States to restrict travel from six Muslim-majority nations. He endorsed a plea by Commonwealth Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, for President Trump to stop discriminating against people on the basis of nationality and religion. Executive Council of Australian Jewry leaders Anton Block and Peter Wertheim chimed in, saying they deplored any policies or remarks that “preference native-born citizens to naturalized migrants,” claiming that “such rhetoric or policy is self-defeating and harmful.” Colin Rubinstein, the executive director the Australia Israel Jewish Affairs Council called Trump’s policy “morally unacceptable and counterproductive.” Yet all of these individuals fully support the Israeli government’s decision to block all Syrian refugees, and Wertheim is more than happy to preference his own ethnic group in Israel, slamming as a “disgraceful falsehood” any claim that Jews displaced Palestinians from their land on the basis that Jews “are indigenous to the Holy Land.”
As always, these Jewish activists play ethnic hardball when it comes to Israel, but sanctimoniously deny the irreconcilability of the competing interests of the various ethnic and religious groups that now make up Western nations.
ADC Chairman Dvir Abramovich
Given the ADC’s fervent advocacy for Israel, despite that nation’s harshly-restrictive policies toward African and all other non-Jewish migrants and refugees, Abramovich’s (and the ADC’s) sanctimonious words about the virtues of “diversity” and “multiculturalism” are exposed for what they are: a rhetorical mask for ethnic aggression against White Australians. The ADC promotes pluralism and diversity and encourages the dissolution of the racial and ethnic identification of White Australians, while encouraging Jews to maintain precisely the kind of intense group solidarity they decry as immoral in Whites. Activist Jews have initiated and led movements that have discredited the traditional foundations of Western society: patriotism, the Christian basis for morality, social homogeneity, and sexual restraint. At the same time, within their own communities, they have supported the very institutions they have attacked in Western societies.
Of course, calling them out for their obvious hypocrisy only prompts hysterical cries of “anti-Semitism.”
ADC media-monitoring and propaganda in Australian schools
One of the ways that ethnic groups compete is through controlling what goes into the minds of their competitors. That is why Jews always seek to control the media and entertainment industries — so they can fill the heads of their ethnic rivals with maladaptive ideas that harm them and which, as a result, help Jews to thrive. Prior to the unmediated peer-to-peer communication offered by the internet, all mainstream political discourse passed through a Jewish media filter (or at least a media filter subservient to Jewish interests). Jews are the only people that, except for the internet, control the flow of information throughout the West, and have a profound need to do so. When Jewish motivations and behavior become widely known, anti-Jewish sentiment inevitably rises.
Jews are not majority shareholders in the two largest media companies in Australia, Fairfax and News Limited. Despite this, they have a large journalistic presence at both organizations, and both companies syndicate material from Jewish-controlled and left-leaning media companies. Fairfax syndicates content from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Reuters (headed by President and Editor-in-Chief Stephen J. Adler), while News Limited syndicates content from the Associated Press (headed by Chairman Steven R. Swartz). Both media companies also provide a regular public platform for the various leaders of Australia’s Jewish activist organizations, including Dvir Abramovich, Colin Rubinstein, Vic Alhadeff, Peter Wertheim, and Mark Liebler.
The ADC assiduously monitors the Australian media, attacking those who stray outside the bounds of Jewish-approved speech in criticizing Israel, multiculturalism, or blaspheming against “the Holocaust.” It lodges formal complaints to employers if an insufficiently penitent response (i.e. an abject apology) is not forthcoming. Such an apology was recently obtained from federal MP George Christensen after the ADC attacked him for appearing on the Alt-Right podcast The Dingoes. Satisfied with Christensen’s apparent repentance, ADC chairman Dvir Abramovich declared that he was “heartened that Mr Christensen has finally owned up to the fact that his appearance on the Dingoes Podcast was a mistake that only legitimized racist rhetoric, and his apology sounds sincere.”
Another important part of the Jewish matrix of power in Australia is the media infrastructure created by the multimillionaire property developer and publisher Morris (Morrie) Schwartz. This Jewish media mogul, who migrated to Australia from Hungary via Israel, is the proprietor behind Black Inc. publishing, the left-wing journals The Monthly and Quarterly Essay (which have been called “the most powerful left-wing voices in Australia”), and The Saturday Paper. Schwartz’s various media organs churn out a never ending stream of articles indignantly demanding that Australia dramatically increase its refugee intake and end the off-shore processing of asylum-seekers.
Conspicuously absent from these same media organs, however, is any discussion (let alone critique) of Israel’s brutal treatment of the Palestinians, or its unaccommodating policies toward all non-Jewish refugees and asylum-seekers. The slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza in 2014 went totally unreported across Schwartz’s media empire. One commentator observed that while the Schwartz publications are full of articles about “indigenous rights, climate change, [and] asylum-seeker policy” they were “shamefully silent” when it came to “Israel’s assault on the Palestinians.” A former editor and staff writer at The Monthly explained that when working under
Morrie Schwartz at Black Inc. or The Monthly, you work very closely with the publisher and things do get spiked and you have raving rows about what goes through and what doesn’t and there are certain glass walls set by the publisher that you can’t go outside of and … one of those is Palestine. I mean it’s seen as a left-wing publication, but the publisher is very right-wing on Israel. … And he’s very much to the, you know, Benjamin Netanyahu end of politics. So you can’t touch it: just don’t touch it. It’s a glass wall.
In her profile of Schwartz for The Australian, journalist Kate Legge noted that “everyone says Schwartz responds viscerally” to all issues concerning Israel. She quotes his close friend, the Jewish academic Robert Manne, who pointed out that “Loyalty to the idea of a Jewish homeland is very important to him.” Former editor of The Monthly, Peter Craven, observed that: “He’s very one-eyed on these sort of things. I once said to [his wife] Anna that I was going to see [the Wagner opera] Tristan and Isolde and she said, “Peter. I won’t even buy German goods.” Schwartz’s sister-in-law, Carol Schwartz, was recently appointed to the board of the Reserve Bank of Australia.
Organized Jewry also exerts leverage on Australian journalists through the Australia Israel Cultural Exchange (AICE) program, launched in 2002 by Benjamin Netanyahu at the instigation of the Australian Jewish property developer and fervent Zionist Albert Dadon. Related by marriage to Morrie Schwartz, Dadon was former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s “most trusted kitchen cabinet advisor on Israel.” The AICE arranges and funds trips to Israel for politicians, senior journalists, trade union leaders and other important decision-makers. The journalists involved (which have included News Limited journalists Greg Sheridan, Andrew Bolt, Rita Panahi, and Janet Albrechtsen) are lavished with hospitality in Israel and intensively propagandized by the Zionist establishment there. The goal is to foster a sense of obligation and loyalty to Israel which is, in turn, reflected in these journalists’ strict adherence to a pro-Jewish and pro-Zionist line. The only real “exchange” involved with this program is journalists trading their intellectual integrity for the strategically-bestowed hospitality of organized Jewry. Lawyer and journalist Greg Barns noted the obvious parallels between the old Soviet Union and the Israel Lobby in their courting of Western journalists:
Back in the days when the hammer and sickle flew proudly, the Soviet Union would spend big dollars on paying for journalists, academics and diplomats to see for themselves the “workers’ paradise.” It was part of a long term and relentless strategy by the Communists to win the propaganda war against the West. Today the heirs and successors of those Soviet-sympathising journalists head to Israel. … The Israelis have clearly learnt a thing or two from the Soviets. They understand how important it is to roll out the red carpet for the media, by offering them carefully choreographed trips to Israel and in return ensure that their spin on events is planted in the minds of the Western media.
The Israelis also know that they have the upper hand in this game, because the impoverished Palestinians will not be able to outdo them when it comes to lavishing hospitality on a willing media. That the Israeli propaganda strategy of handpicking journalists and others to come to Israel works was made abundantly clear when The Australian’s Janet Albrechtsen visited Israel last November as a guest of the Israeli government and the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies. …
Albrechtsen is not alone in being feted by the Israeli propaganda machine. The Sydney Morning Herald’s Paul Sheehan is another. Just as the Soviets carefully selected the journalists they wanted to show around the country, so is the case with the Israelis. The Soviets would go for leftist sympathizers in papers such as the New York Times, The Guardian and other influential mastheads. The Israelis also favour sympathetic writers. Greg Sheridan as recently as May 6 was comforting poor Israel because “second to the US, Israel is the most acute object of the hostility to the West that flourishes in Western intellectual life.” One is tempted to evoke the immortal phrase “useful idiots,” attributed to Lenin, and used against Western journalists who fell for Soviet propaganda in the 1930s, to describe Western journalists who accept paid trips from the Israeli authorities.
It’s not only journalists who are targeted with these elaborate bribery schemes. During the last Australian Parliamentary term (2013-2016), Israel sponsored more foreign trips for members of the House of Representatives than any other country. Former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr observed in 2014 that Australia’s foreign policy (particularly with regard to the Middle East) was being virtually dictated by organized Jewry. Speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Carr hit out at the “pro-Israel lobby in Melbourne,” saying it wielded “extraordinary influence” on Australia’s foreign policy during his time in Julia Gillard’s cabinet. As The Guardian reported:
Asked about the comments by the ABC’s 7.30 he said: “Certainly they enjoyed extraordinary influence. I had to resist it and my book tells the story of that resistance. … It needs to be highlighted because I think it reached a very unhealthy level.” Asked how the lobby achieved this influence he said: “I think party donations and a program of giving trips to MPs and journalists to Israel. But that’s not to condemn them. I mean, other interest groups do the same thing. But it needs to be highlighted because I think it reached a very unhealthy level.”
Despite all the foregoing, the advent of the internet has seriously undermined the capacity of Jews to comprehensively regulate public discourse in their own interests. Organized Jewry in Australia has responded to this disturbing development with a multifaceted approach. They have lobbied aggressively for the enactment and extension of Orwellian “hate speech” laws (like the notorious Section 18C of Australia’s Racial Discrimination Act) to counteract “online abuse.” Abramovich claims such laws “are a vital and necessary tool in addressing and countering the unique harm caused by bias-motivated hate speech.” In addition, the ADC has launched various “educational” programs in schools like “Click against Hate,” which is an “early intervention” program for goyish schoolchildren from Years 5 to 10. The program is offered free of charge to schools as a result of funding provided by billionaire Jewish property developer (and ardent Zionist) John Gandel.

Gandel also happens to fund Taglit-Birthright Israel, a program that provides free ten-day tours of Israel for young Jews who are “currently unaffiliated with the Jewish community and have never visited Israel.” Announcing the funding, Gandel declared that “My family strongly believes in supporting a range of programs that can foster and enhance Jewish continuity and identity, and help develop the future leaders in our community.” The Zionist Federation of Australia thanked Gandel and extoled Taglit-Birthright Israel as “a critically important Israel program” that serves to “engage many young Jewish adults with the powerful connection to Israel, Judaism and other young Jews they meet during and after the program.” Thus, while seeking to increase Jewish ethnocentrism and ethno-nationalism through his funding of Taglit-Birthright Israel, Gandel simultaneously funds “Click Against Hate,” a program specifically designed by the ADC to reduce White ethnocentrism and promote the virtues of “diversity” and “multiculturalism” among Australian schoolchildren.
According to the ADC’s website, “Click Against Hate” teaches students “to deal with a wide range of issues including: identity theft, invasion of privacy, cyber bullying, incitement, defamation, online dangers, YouTube and Facebook reporting, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, homophobia, freedom of speech, vilification, obscenity, contempt of court, website reliability, primary and secondary sources.” Under the guise of an educational program designed to promote cyber-safety and pro-social behaviour, “Click Against Hate” pushes a Jewish ethno-political agenda entirely contrary to the interests of the White Australian children involved. It promotes feelings of guilt and shame in White children, and foments grievance among non-White children — encouraging them to join Jews in mounting moral critiques of White Australian society and history. I recently obtained a recording made by a disgruntled student of a “Click Against Hate” session. In the subsequent parts of this article, I provide excerpts from this session together with my observations and comments.
