Progress in Fighting Internet Censorship
I’M GLAD to report that we’re making progress in our recently launched campaign against Internet censorship:
— Here in southern California, the Anaheim Union High School District responded to our expressions of concern by unblocking access to our Web site.
— In Columbus, Georgia, a local activist successfully persuaded the city’s library system to unblock access to our site.
— Some businesses have responded positively to our letters and meetings explaining why blocking access to the IHR site is bigoted and unfair.
— We’re gathering more documentation on the one-sided and bigoted standards used by major web content filtering companies to censor the Internet.
— We’re carefully considering legal action against schools, businesses or other entities that do not respond positively to our expressions of concern, but instead insist on blocking access to the IHR Web site.
I’m very encouraged by the backing we’re getting for this project. People across the country are providing helpful information and advice.
In letters, by telephone, and in face-to-face meetings, we’re contacting businesses and other institutions that block access to our site to explain why this practice is unfair, defamatory and harmful, and to call on them to stop it.

This project is much more than a battle for the IHR. By exposing and fighting the censorship of partisan special interests, we are defending Internet freedom for all Americans.
Our project has attracted overseas media attention. A reporter for the English-language service of Iran’s foreign broadcast service interviewed me about the problem of Internet censorship in the US, and our initiative to counter it. Our project has also, predictably, prompted Zionist complaints.
I’d appreciate your help with this important effort. Please send me information about businesses, school districts and other institutions that block access to the IHR website. (Of course, the identity of everyone who helps is kept strictly confidential.)
Through hard work and determined effort, and with crucial support from men and women like you, we’ve established the IHR on the front line in the struggle for freedom and historical truth.
One sign of our effectiveness is the furious criticism we get from major Zionist groups. Year after year, these influential associations hammer us because they hate our resolute work against their agenda of supremacism, oppression and censorship.
What we accomplish — through meetings, lectures, interviews, online outreach, Web sites, and distribution of books, discs and flyers — depends on support from men and women like you.
