[Editor’s note: While this funding boost is not the reason behind the Charlottesville fiasco, it is certainly a welcome bonus for the perpetrators – the ADL and the rest of the Israeli lobby, the SPLC, AIPAC and B’nai Brith.
Yes, the Israeli lobby is behind Charlottesville and the rest of the attacks on US society that are, ultimately, intended to destabilise and perhaps even destroy the USA by turning left against right black against white, dividing and conquering in a ploy straight out of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

The Anti-Defamation League received 10 times as much money as usual from online donations in response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The group, which combats anti-Semitism and bigotry, reported a 1,000 percent increase in online donations during the week beginning Aug. 13, one day after the Charlottesville rally. The ADL said it received six times as many individual donations as during an average week this year, mostly from first-time donors, though it did not provide a total amount of money raised.
In the aftermath of the rally, the ADL has seen its profile skyrocket. It received $1 million donations from Apple and 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch, and announced a partnership with Bumble, a dating app, to block bigoted profiles. JP Morgan Chase also announced this week that it would donate $500,000 to the group. JP Morgan and Apple also pledged to match donations to the ADL and other nonprofits from employees.
On Friday, the ADL announced a partnership with the U.S. Conference of Mayors to combat hate and bigotry.
In 2015, ADL raised more than $52 million in contributions and grants, according to its most recently available tax filings.
