The US-based influential pro-Israel lobby group, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), is again in the news and again for the wrong reasons. This time because of the group’s no-holds-barred showdown with billionaire social media mogul Elon Musk.
Musk, the owner of the social media platform X (previously known as Twitter), and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) have been engaged in verbal duels in recent weeks on social media, yet again exposing the true face of the Zionist organization and its shady activities to fan the flames of hate and toxicity.
On Monday, September 4, Musk published a tweet that read: "To be super clear, I’m pro-free speech, but against anti-Semitism of any kind," leaving millions of his followers wondering what it was about.

When asked to explain what he was referring to, Musk added: "Since the acquisition, the ADL has been trying to kill this platform by falsely accusing it & me of being anti-Semitic."
The American tech mogul who bought the popular social media network last year was fuming.
"Our US advertising revenue is still down 60%, primarily due to pressure on advertisers by ADL (that’s what advertisers tell us), so they almost succeeded in killing X/Twitter!", he tweeted.
Musk hastened to add that he and his company have no choice but to file a defamation suit against the pro-Israel lobby group, whose "anti-defamation" title Musk described as ironic.
A day later, he reiterated that he was filing a lawsuit and that the ADL would potentially be on the hook for destroying half of the company's value, roughly $22 billion.
"If this continues, we will have no choice but to file a defamation suit against, ironically, the 'Anti-Defamation' League," Musk wrote, adding that the group must drop the ‘anti’ part of their name.
To clear our platform’s name on the matter of anti-Semitism, it looks like we have no choice but to file a defamation lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League … oh the irony!

Musk acquired Twitter in 2022 for $44 billion and promised greater freedom of speech compared to when the platform implemented policies as draconian as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The company came under pressure from Israeli lobby groups to reinstate rigorous censorship measures against criticism of the regime and its Zionist ideology. After the company refused to accept the diktats, the lobby groups launched the massive anti-Twitter smear campaign against Musk.
"Conspiracy" as reality
Until recently, anyone who complained that the ADL and the rest of the Zionist lobby groups were tarnishing their reputation would be described as anti-semitic, lunatic and conspiracy theorists.
This time, however, they took on the CEO of a leading social media giant, a leader in cutting-edge technologies of interplanetary travel, and the richest man in the world, who decided to strike back.
Just a few days before the incident, Musk's Twitter was the subject of controversy due to the announced acquisition of an Israeli company for verifying Twitter users, and today he shares documentaries that expose Zionist slander in the guise of defamation.
He also posted a tweet with a group of mass media outlets that have joined the ADL's smear campaign, including CNN, MSNBC, Times of Israel, New York Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Atlantic, Verge, Rolling Stone, and Fortune.
This all has an enormous impact because Twitter has over half a billion users and Musk's tweets pop up regularly for everyone.
More details revealed
On September 6, Musk further revealed a screenshot that proved that Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL, kicked off a massive Twitter boycott campaign less than a week after the acquisition closed.

Literally nothing had changed about the site.

"Today, we are joining dozens of other groups to ask advertisers to pause Twitter spending because we are profoundly concerned about anti-Semitism and hate on the platform," the ADL stated in April 2022.
This tweet confirmed that the ADL is working in a coordinated manner with dozens of Zionist groups in order to inflict financial damage on the richest man on Earth, according to observers.
Musk voiced his intention to release by mid-September all the data exposing the ADL and other organizations that pushed for accounts to be censored on Twitter.
The ADL and the aforementioned mass media used the same argument in their attack on Musk, claiming that he is doing nothing to prevent the "epidemic of hate speech" on his platform.
Speaking to CNN on Wednesday, Greenblatt told CNN that the lobby group has seen a surge in threats since Musk took over Twitter, linking it to anti-semitism.
“What starts online often ends up on the ground,” Greenblatt stated, referring to how the #BanTheADL hashtag jumped from X to actual protesters in recent days.
Musk, came up with a telling image, which read: “Drop the anti, just defamation league, It’s cleaner.”
