IJAN is excited to release our new report, The Business of Backlash: The Attack on the Palestinian Movement and Other Movements for Social Justice, which reveals the financing behind the attacks across the United States against those who have been organizing in support of Palestine. This long awaited 124 page report, which synthesizes thousands of pages of tax returns, demonstrates that a small handful of individuals, including right-wing donors Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers, Newton and Rochelle Becker, the Sarah Scaife foundation and the Bradley foundation are responsible for a huge portion of this funding. These same donors, many of whom earned their wealth from or are invested in industries that profit from war and instability in the Middle East, are involved in attacks on other progressive causes.

We hope that The Business of Backlash will be used as a practical resource for advancing the strategic defense of the Palestinian and Palestinian solidarity movements, and for broadening and deepening our alliances with other movements that are struggling for collective liberation.
This report was written in conjunction with many partners in the Palestine and Palestine Solidarity movements and would not have been possible without their contributions.
