Helpful Zionists want to author 'terms of service' agreements for Internet providers everywhere.
Continuing to further efforts to censor the Internet on behalf of Israel, ADL employees addressed a packed room on Capitol Hill to discuss how "governments, industry and advocates could partner to curb online hate." The session was sponsored by the Congressional Task Force Against Anti-Semitism, and hosted by ADL.
The meeting began with remarks from Task Force Co-Chairman Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA). Panelists included Christopher Wolf, the Chair of ADL's Internet Task Force who spoke about the complex legal issues surrounding censoring "hate;" and Brian Marcus, ADL Director of Internet Monitoring who gave a multi-media presentation that highlighted many examples of "hate" from around the world.

"..there is a dark side to the Internet," Mr. Wolf testified. "Terrorists, anti-Semites, racists, homophobes and other haters have logged on and are online. ... Unfortunately, the Internet has become the new frontier in spreading hate."
Mr. Wolf offered recommendations for coordinating an international response to "hate," including:
* Better monitoring the use of the Internet for hateful purposes.
* Studies on the ways in which children become exposed to hate.
* An examination of the link between hate speech and hate crimes.
* Annual reports should be prepared on the State of Hate on the Internet.
Panelists agreed that governments need to establish legally enforceable codes of conduct, under which providers will be required to remove sites that are in violation, or face sanctions.
