ZOA in the news

Correction: Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Never Criticized ZOA at ZOA DC Luncheon/Lobbying Mission

At the ZOA luncheon, Brown merely voiced his erroneous opinions that the Trump Administration and Mr. Bannon are anti-Semitic. But ZOA has repeatedly stated and shown the overwhelming evidence that Trump and Bannon are pro-Israel, fight anti-Semitism and regularly praise the Jewish people.

Morton A. Klein is the National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA).
