Anti Defamation League's Foxman - Fit person to control the Internet?
Now he is sounding the alarm about another horrifyingly threatening measure: the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which passed the House on April 26th.
CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) is a bill that would take away a very great freedom: privacy on the internet. It would make federal spies of…internet giants such as Google, Facebook, Verizon, Comcast, and Time-Warner CableADL PREPARES FOR INTERNET TAKEOVER 15 May 12
These federal informants would receive “wish list” requests from the government for information on internet users. In return, internet moguls would supply to the government (without our consent) our names and information about us free of any possible liability.
The Rev. Pike is of course an unswerving opponent of Zionism and its influence in American life, so he has every reason to be afraid:
The Anti-Defamation League has long coveted the role of providing to the government and its internet spies the pivotal definitions which determine which ideas are a “national security threat.” Should CISPA pass, ADL wants to be in firm agreement with the government and internet industry on exactly who will be reported as an internet hater, anti-Semite, security threat or possible domestic terrorist.Unfortunately he can prove this allegation by reference to a May 10 2012 press release from the ADL which gloats
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will convene a new working group on cyberhate that will bring together Internet industry leaders and others to probe the roots of the problem and develop new solutions to address it head-on.ADL Teams With Internet Industry Leaders To Convene Cyberhate Working Group May 10, 2012
The Task Force on Internet Hate, created by the Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism (ICCA), formally approved a motion May 7 establishing the "Anti-Cyberhate Working Group,"…
"We are honored to have been appointed by the ICCA to convene this important working group," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "Internet hate continues to have a global impact on civil society... We welcome the commitments of Google and Facebook to participate in this dialogue to combat online hate speech, Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism…
Christopher Wolf…who serves as Co-Chair of the ICCA Task Force on Internet Hate and Chair of the ADL Task Force on Internet Hate, stated...”The Internet has been infected with the virus of hate since its inception, and the Task Force is proving to be one of the most effective mechanisms for developing voluntary efforts to disable the virus."
So has the Obama Administration! But the GOP House seemed indifferent to opposition – or, perhaps, just obedient.
And that quintessential creation of the Internet, the Drudge Report, has apparently carried nothing. Unfortunately, that is not a surprise.
The measure is now headed for the Senate. I strongly suggest signing up for the National Prayer Network’s email alerts (via their home page) to keep track of it.
