ZOA Endorses John Bolton As U.S. Ambassador To The United Nations
July 24, 2005

WASHINGTON — The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) announced its strong support for President Bush’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, currently the Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. The ZOA calls on the members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to support the President’s nominee and move swiftly to bring the nomination to a full vote of the Senate.

“Undersecretary Bolton has shown himself to be a man of enormous integrity,” said Morton A. Klein, National President of the ZOA. “He would be an outstanding advocate for the interests of the United States at the U.N. He also understands the reforms necessary to make the U.N. a more effective moral body that works to improve the difficult conditions that exist in many places around the globe.”

Bolton distinguished himself in previous dealings with the U. N., being the driving force behind the revocation of the U.N. General Assembly’s 1975 “Zionism is racism” Resolution in 1991. It is this achievement Bolton calls a “highlight of my career,” and one that removed “the greatest stain on the U.N.’s reputation.”

Klein also noted, “Undersecretary Bolton has shown himself to be a strong supporter of Israel who believes in its importance to America, and he has proven himself as an effective proponent of the war on terrorism — two things sorely needed at the U.N.”
