Your donation will help pay for StopAntisemitism.com, a domain purchased for nearly $4,000, likely outbidding the site's efforts to buy it. The site will use parody to correct the record on innocent people smeared with a multimillion-dollar campaign of character assassination. Parody is legally protected as Fair Use under US Copyright Law "for purposes such as criticism [or] comment" with "transformative use".
StopAntisemitism.org is a website and social media account started by Adam Milstein
, a wealthy right-wing AIPAC lobbyist. Its strategy is to list critics of Israeli government actions against Palestinian human rights alongside actual antisemites to conflate criticism of Israel with antisemitism. The impact of this strategy has been devastating to ordinary people, whose jobs, safety and families have been put in danger for being falsely associated with the views of the KKK, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
To promote itself, it occasionally lists high-profile celebrities like Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa as antisemites. But its real targets are ordinary students, professors, activists and human rights defenders. Many of them find these listings as the first result for their name on Google search, impacting their employment, relationships, and the physical safety of them and their loved ones.
StopAntisemitism.com's aim is to sit alongside StopAntisemitism.org's site in search engine results and use parody to correctly name and critique the site's origins, and repair harm to victims of smears with their actual points of view in support of the safety and security of all Palestinians, all Jews and all human rights advocates everywhere.
Any donations beyond our goal will fund research needs, web development, or hosting costs. All expenses will be fully documented and shared with donors.
