David Collier is creating content that exposes and fights anti-Zionism and antisemitism

The above are just some of the many news stories generated by my research.  I have created exclusives on hundreds of hard-core haters and the current ongoing story on antisemitism in the British Labour party began as a result of my undercover work and a 290 page report I released in March 2018. A report that placed Jeremy Corbyn inside a secret antisemitic Facebook Group. I have a large audience, with my Twitter feed alone receiving several million impressions each month. I am frequently cited by mainstream media across the globe.

My research goes well beyond exposing antisemitism. I look at the history of the Israeli /Arab conflict and the attempts to delegitimise Israel and Zionism through a false historical narrative. I exposed a secret discussion by core activists that stated the violence on the Mavi Marmara was started by an extreme anti-Israel activist, not by the Israelis - an exclusive that completely contradicted their official version of events. That is now on the Wiki page of the incident. Deep research in the National Archives found that an alleged massacre in early 1948 - simply never happened. The National Archives were also used to debunk new and vicious anti-Israel propaganda published in a 2016 book.

I was listed as one of the J100 - the top 100 people 'positively influencing Jewish life' in 2017. My work is fully independent and I am not associated with any mainstream organisation. This adds greatly to the integrity of the work but it does me all my costs are 'in-house'.

As anyone involved in the fight against antisemitism and the anti-Israel campaign knows, there is no shortage of work to do. I go to events and demonstrations. I film, I research, I write, I publish. None of this is cheap.

I have become a central target for anti-Israel activists. I have had articles written about me, smearing my character and I am a constant target for online trolls. I have also been personally targeted, with threats made against me and my family. Just a couple of the less-profanity ridden examples:





Until now I have received donations via PayPal, and the community has been consistently supportive of my work. As appreciative of this as I am, it does have a down-side - donations come in when I post blogs, but not when I am conducting more intensive research. Patreon presents and opportunity to 'normalise' and 'regulate' such support, allowing me to plan, and to purchase better equipment, go to more events, conduct more in-depth research and use social media advertising more than I do.

I have no clear goal in mind. I do not seek to become an organisation nor do I require offices. My targets are all around highly focused research within a modest environment. These are some of my goals:

Occasional part-time help with research:
Much of my work involves checking activity online, following up on information sent to me and other work that I could hand over to students or others to do. This is something that would allow me to engage in deep intensive research without being concerned about overload.

Better equipment
Half of my scoops come from offline interaction. This requires video & audio equipment and software. I am constantly upgrading, seeking new and better ways to help me capture what needs to be publicised. In the past, real stories have been missed because the equipment failed or the quality wasn't good enough.

Social media advertising
My following is well-educated, and I have many subscribers in law, media and politics. But internet bubbles still exist and sometimes it is necessary to push a story onto specific audiences. This is not cheap and is a constant barrier to 'getting the story out'.

More events
I seek to attend more events than I do, especially those that are not London-centric. This involves travel, occasional accommodation and entry fees.

Better sources
Most of the top media sources are  now publishing behind a paywall. I have subscriptions to several of the top ones. But for the research I do, I also need access to academic journals, libraries and archives. Additional funds will enable me to widen my reach to source material.

As I often say, my research would be impossible without community help. It is a partnership and I am deeply grateful to all those who have helped by contributing to my work. It does not matter if you can only set aside a couple of pounds a month or something a little more substantial, in the end, every single penny helps. 

It is all truly appreciated. David
