  • Elder of Ziyon
A lawsuit was filed yesterday in New York City against the National Lawyers Guild.

Last year, the National Lawyers Guild held an annual fundraising dinner and asked for ads:

Show your support for the NLG with an ad in our annual Dinner Journal!
Distributed at the Banquet of the #Law4thePeople Convention, placing an ad in
the journal is a great way to congratulate our outstanding honorees, publicize
your firm or organization, or just share a message of your own!

An Israeli organization in Gush Etzion sent in this ad for the journal:

On June 27, 2016, Bibliotechnical paid the $200 fee for publication of this advertisement.The Guild rejected the advertisement, advising Bibliotechnical that it would not accept monies from an Israeli organization according to the lawsuit. The next day, the $200 was refunded.

Here was the exact email that the Guild sent.
Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, we have a resolution barring us from accepting funds from Israeli organizations. Your refund to your credit card will be processed tomorrow (there is a 24 hour waiting period before we're able to process any refunds).
Here is the text of the relevant part of the 2007 resolution, which incidentally also calls for Israel to be destroyed via the fake "right of return":



The NLG is consistent in its anti-Israel activities. It has urged state governments to divest from Israel Bonds. Every article on its site that mentions Israel is an attack, with entire articles taken from such extreme left sites like TruthOut. It has urged the US to stop all aid to Israel. There is not even the pretense of objectivity.

To give you an idea of how far left the Guild is, the levels of sponsorship for a previous event were named, in increasing order, Resistance, Truth to Power, Solidarity, Revolution, Victory.

The lawsuit charges NLG with discrimination under New York City and New York State human rights laws, under which an institution can be considered a person for the purposes of the law. E.g.,
Bibliotechnical is a "person" within the meaning of the New York City Human Rights Law in that it is an organization and the New York City Human Rights Law defines a "person" as including "one or more, natural persons, proprietorships partnerships, associations, group associations, organizations, governmental bodies or agencies, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers." New York City Human Rights Law Section 8-102.  

The lawsuit was filed by David Abrams, a New York lawyer whom I have worked with.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
