Jew Watch is an antisemitic[1] website that promotes Holocaust denial[3] and negative claims about Jews. The claims include allegations of a conspiracy that Jews control the media and banking,[4] as well as accusations of Jewish involvement in terrorist groups. The site contains a large amount of propaganda, according to Sam Varghese of The Age, similar to that used in Nazi Germany.[5] It is widely considered a hate site.[1] Jew Watch has received support from Stormfront, a white nationalist and neo-Nazi site.[6] The site describes itself as a "not-for-profit library for private study, scholarship, or research [that keeps] a close watch on Jewish Communities and organizations worldwide".[7]

The site received media attention in April 2004 when it emerged as the first result in a Google search for the word "Jew" and a petition was started to get the site removed from Google search results.[8][9] A scandal in 2006 involved solicitations for donations to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina being redirected to Jew Watch.[10]

Ownership

Established in 1998,[11] the website is owned and maintained by Frank Weltner, a member of the National Alliance, a white nationalist and white separatist organization.[12][13][14]
