Many readers will know Mondoweiss, the website run by Jews which publishes an endless stream of anti-Israel propaganda, and whose online comments regularly includes antisemitic comments.
Mondoweiss defines itself as "a news website devoted to covering American foreign policy in the Middle East, chiefly from a progressive Jewish direction" and claims, in Orwellian fashion, that its aim is "to publish a diversity of voices to promote dialogue on these important issues," although the only "diversity of views" on the site is the best method of destroying Israel.
According to its website, Mondoweiss has two editors (Philip Weiss and Adam Horowitz), two assistant editors, and an editor-at-large. Presumably they are not volunteer workers, and money certainly doesn't grow on trees, even for websites that are updated on a daily basis.
Mondoweiss states that its website "is part of the Center for Economic Research and Social Change," an ambiguously sinister-sounding body in north Chicago. Turning to its website, the Center (CERSC, as it is known) lists five "projects" which it supports. These are publishing the International Socialist Review; holding an annual conference which two years ago was termed "Socialism 2012"; hosting "We Are Many," another website "devoted to publishing radical and activist video and audio media," and funding Haymarket Books, a radical publishing firm.
The International Socialist Review is a "bimonthly journal of politics, history, theory, and current events from a Marxist perspective." According to the Wikipedia entry for the International Socialist Organisation, it "distributes the International Socialist Review and titles from the publishing house Haymarket Books, both of which are run by the CERSC."
Haymarket Books is a radical publishing house based in Chicago, that produces a range of radical and Marxist books (some of which are rather interesting albeit always tendentious). It is named for the Haymarket bombings in Chicago in 1886, in which seven policemen and others were murdered by a bomb apparently planted by anarchists. Bizarrely, there is a statue in Chicago commemorating not the victims of terrorism, but the men who were hanged for the crime, which is rather as if a monument were erected in New York to commemorate Osama Bin-Laden.
Being a non-profit organisation, CERSC has to publish annual financial reports. The most recent available online annual report, for 2012, lists only one individual by name. According to this statement, the annual report was filed "in the name of" one Ahmed Sehrawy, about whom no further information is given. In 2011-2012, CERSC had assets of $1,087,000, with income of $2,096,000, and revenue of $1,358,000. Its "compensation of officers, directors, and trustees" was only $41,459, the rest of its costs going for "operating expenses."
There the trail runs cold: one would like to know far more about this range of organisations and their funding.
