Regarding Dr. Oboler's Report (below)

Our only complaint at this point is that it focuses mostly on antisemitism and does not seem to highlight the fact that the group in question also strongly advocated violence and Islamic terrorism. We believe there is a sharp difference there. On one hand, antisemitism and hate speech are "ideas." The promotion of violence is an actual threat. They are part of the same problem, but one grows from the other and suggests that the problem of antisemitism and hatred does, in fact, grow into the possibility of violence. While it might be obvious to us, we're not sure if casual (and forgetful) readers understand why the fight against antisemitism is so important. It would all be fine and dandy if history has not proven that this material often leads to violent hate crime. Please note:

"Wiesel Attacker "Sucked into anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on the internet"

If we find the time and/or energy, we might do more of the following, soon:

  • Compare the misinformation found on Wikipedia, to the facts presented in Oboler's piece below
  • Show content of the IINAC group before it was deleted
  • Provide a list of the new groups which have sprung up when IINAC vanished, along with samples of the promoting of hatred and violence in them
  • Elaborate on JIDF discussions with Facebook and on the campaign to have the group (and others) removed
