For 100 years, ADL has worked to reverse

justice in the murder of little Mary Phagan

Jews won't rest until the murderer Leo Frank is declared


Abraham Foxman (left) was paid handsomely by the ADL to protect and
defend Jew criminals and perverts like Leo Frank (right).

On July 20, 2015, Abe Foxman ended his "50 years of service to the
Anti-Defamation League (ADL), twenty-eight of them spent as National
Director. The League itself was founded in October 1913 (an exact day is not
given) as a direct reaction to the guilty verdict delivered on Leo M. Frank in
Atlanta, Georgia two months earlier, on August 25, 1913.
Though it's played down now, the fact that a prominent Jew was exposed as
a pervert rapist-murderer, and that the entire nation had followed the
sensational trial testimony, horrified the Jewish establishment. Leo Frank
was President of the Atlanta chapter of B'nai B'rith*, and was the son-inlaw of the wealthy Jewish Selig family of that city. And now this privileged
Jew, one of their own, was scheduled to BE HANGED for the murder of a 13year old Christian girl who worked at the National Pencil Factory of which he
was supervisor.
This could not be allowed to continue.

Therefore, the "Anti-Defamation League" was created by the Independent

Order of B'nai B'rith as an activist arm of the New York City-based
organization, charged with the following mission:
To stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals
to law, the defamation of the Jewish people.
The League doesn't distinguish between the truth or falsehood of what is
being said about Jews, because, to it, Jews are always innocent.

was wrapped around her neck to strangle her.
Shortly after Frank was convicted by the jury, a nationwide campaign to
exonerate him was inaugurated by Jewish interests. Adolph Ochs, Jewish
publisher of The New York Times, was the most active; he teamed with
A.D. Lasker, an "advertising genius" to carry out a number of publicity
campaigns. Another New York newspaper The Sun published the headline
"Jews Fight to Save Leo Frank." That was exactly accurate.
The entire argument used by the Jews, then and now, consists of the
magical charge of anti-Semitism** which works in every case. In the case
of Leo Frank, they insist it poisoned the minds of the Southern population
against him. In this way they avoid the subject of the evidence.
Frank's high priced lawyers appealed the case for two years, up to the U.S.
Supreme Court, and no fault or error in the trial proceedings, and no antiPg 2

Semitism, was unearthed. But Jews don't rely on only one plan of action. On
the eve of the day Frank was scheduled to hang, outgoing Georgia Gov. John
Slaton commuted his sentence to life in prison, in spite of the fact that it was
a conflict-of-interest. Slaton was a law partner in the same firm as Frank's
lead counsel, Jew Luther Z. Rosser. Thus, Slaton commuted the sentence of
a man being represented by his own law firm!
But in commuting Frank's death sentence, Slaton admitted he found no
error of law in the trial, that the evidence submitted was sufficient to
sustain the guilty verdict, and that any charge of racial prejudice was
"unfair" but he still thought there was an element of doubt felt by many.
This doubt however, was not felt by the newly elected incoming governor,
Nathaniel Harris, who supported Frank's conviction and execution. Nor was it
shared by the public, which was outraged by the move. A mob gathered at
Slaton's home, and he and his wife felt the need to move out of Georgia
immediately after the new governor was sworn in.
This was not anti-Semitism. This was a judgment of the people against
taking too lightly the life of 13-year-old working girl . Prominent men of the
community organized themselves into the Knights of Mary Phagan, openly
planning to kidnap Frank from prison. Populist politician Tom Watson wrote
in his magazine, Lynch law is a good sign; it shows that a sense of justice
lives among the people.
As you know, the kidnapping took place and Leo Frank was lynched on the
morning of August 17, 1915 outside of the town of Marietta where Mary
Phagan had lived with her mother, stepfather and siblings. And it is said that
still today ...

Its the only known lynching of a Jew in American history.

From that time to present day, the ADL and the rest of the U.S. Jewish
establishment has sustained the single-minded intention to reverse the
findings of that trial, to exonerate Leo Frank fully, to have the state of
Georgia proclaim him to be an innocent man who was another Jewish victim
of anti-Semitism in America.

The lynching of Leo Frank by the committee of 28 responsible citizens.

As you may know, the ADL's secret of success is that they never give up,
and they take every opportunity to make progress toward their goal, no
matter how small or seemingly unimportant.
In 1982, the ADL of B'nai B'rith, the American Jewish Committee, Atlanta
Jewish Federation and numerous other Jewish organizations used some "new
information" to push for a Posthumous Pardon and Exoneration for Leo M.
Frank for the murder of Mary Ann Phagan. The petition was denied on
December 22, 1983. [enlarge letter]

In 2003, on the 90th anniversary of the Anti-Defamation League's founding,

a monument dedicated by the ADL was placed near the inside entrance
of the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens, NY where Leo Frank is
buried.. It reads:
Leo Frank: The trial of Leo Frank in 1913 was motivated by the
rampant antisemitism of the time. The founding of the Anti-Defamation
League that same year was motivated by a passion to eradicate such
injustice and bigotry. Despite his innocence, Frank was abducted from jail
in 1915 and lynched. ADL remembers the victim Leo Frank and rededicates
itself to ensuring there will be no more victims of injustice and intolerance.

Pg 5

Though it is a lie, the charge of rampant antisemitism is what the ADL is

determined to associate with any Jewish wrongdoing across the breadth of
this land, and to make it the unquestioned truth of the matter. The ADL is
on the move to make the Jewish narrative on EVERYTHING the only
narrative that exists This is what they mean when they say they want to
Stop the defamation of the Jewish people. It means that any accusation
against a Jew is defamation, and will not be allowed to stand.
In 2008, a Leo Frank Lynching Site historical marker was put up near
the site of the 1915 lynching in Marietta. The lynching marker read:
Near this location on August 17, 1915, Leo M. Frank, the Jewish
superintendent of the National Pencil Company in Atlanta, was lynched for
the murder of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory employee. A highly
controversial trial fueled by societal tensions and anti-Semitism
resulted in a guilty verdict in 1913. After Governor John M. Slaton commuted
his sentence from death to life in prison, Frank was kidnapped from the state
prison in Milledgeville and taken to Phagan's hometown of Marietta where he
Pg 6

was hanged before a local crowd. Without addressing guilt or innocence, and
in recognition of the state's failure to either protect Frank or bring his
killers to justice***, he was granted a posthumous pardon in 1986.
Erected by the Georgia Historical Society, the Jewish American Society for
Historic Preservation, and Temple Kol Emeth.

Because of roadway renovation, the marker had to be temporarily taken

down, but now a new historical marker has been put up on the property of
the Atlanta History Center, whose executive vice president is a man named
Michael Rose. The new marker was put up on June 17; it honors Gov. John
M. Slaton's commutation of Leo Frank's sentence. Another of the three
organizations sponsoring this marker is the Jewish American Society for
Historic Preservation. So two out of three, at least, are Jewish. The writing
on this Slaton marker includes these words:
Concerned by the sensationalized atmosphere and
circumstantial evidence that led to the notorious 1913
conviction of Jewish businessman Leo Frank in the murder of
teenager Mary Phagan, Slaton granted Frank clemency in June
1915. Slatons commutation of Franks death sentence drew
national attention but hostile local backlash resulted in Franks
lynching in August 1915, and the end of Slatons political career

What could be more dismissive of 13-year-old Mary Phagan than to call her
a teenager? There were no teenagers in 1913 [the term was invented
later] but there were many girls from modest families who, from the age of
12 on, left school and worked full time in factories and mills for something
like ten cents an hour. In any case, a teenager can be any age from 13 to
19! This is a good example of how Jews will sacrifice even Gentile children
on the alter of protecting guilty, criminal Jews.

office was on the 2nd floor front, right where the advertising sign says "For
the Blood."
Another of the tribe who worked to erect the 2008 marker at the lynching
site is Rabbi Steve Lebow of Temple Kol Emeth in East Cobb (pictured at
right). Lebow says hes trying to get the lynching marker out of storage for a
centennial event planned for next month.

Rabbi Lebow is very active in the cause of Leo Frank, and says of the
pardon, That's not enough. He wants Frank to be declared innocent and
will ask the Georgia General Assembly, Cobb County and the city of Marietta
to exonerate Frank.
This Lebow is a real character.

His specialty is officiating at Jewish and interfaith weddings. I'm sorry if this
article devolves into comedy - it's not my fault.

bride whose wedding he officiated.
Rabbi Lebow is also circulating a petition on the Internet but there is
no groundswell of support. From reading it, I conjecture that he is not too
well educated. He doesn't write well and he doesn't know the facts about the
trial either. He falsely states:
Frank was subsequently convicted on false testimony, given
on the stand by many who suspect to be the real murderer,
Jim Conley.
Frank's trial, from beginning to end, was a legal farce.
Witnesses were coerced to say they had seen Leo Frank with
the girl that day. Then many of those witnesses later recanted
their story. The forensic evidence had been "cooked". The
jury was instructed that the girl's hair and blood had been
found next to Frank's office. [Instructed by whom?]
Convinced that the entire trial had been a sham, Governor
Slaton mounted an independent investigation of the crime.
Slaton's conclusion was inescapable; Frank had been falsely
Pg 10

accused and then wrongly convicted. [No, Slaton said he

read over the entire trial transcript and found no errors and no
reason to disagree with the verdict. The opposite of what Lebow
This is the type of reasoning and facts that we get from the Leo
Frank defenders, all the way up to the ADL and Abe Foxman. They
have no valid arguments; they rely on victimology and the old
complaint of anti-Semitism and on downright lies.
More to come: Next month, on Monday, August 17, we will mark the 100th
anniversary of the lynching of Leo Frank by a committee of 28 respectable,
responsible men from the community. The list includes a former Georgia
governor, Joseph Mackey Brown; former mayor of Marietta and later
president of the Georgia Senate, Eugene Herbert Clay; the Mayor of Marietta
at the time, E. P. Dobbs; lawyer and banker, part of the Marietta delegation
at Governor Slaton's clemency hearing, Moultrie McKinney Sessions; several
current and former Cobb County sheriffs, and other professional men.
This was not a rag-tag band of ne'r-do-wells, and that's why they were not
prosecuted. It was Gov. Slaton who had to leave the state because he took
the law into his own hands in order to please or placate the Jews. How much
was he paid? ~
