News Press Release
August 17, 2015

The ZOA applauds the appointment of Minister Danny Danon as Israeli Ambassador to United Nations.

Morton Klein, President of ZOA, issued the following statement:

“The ZOA has congratulated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his inspired selection of Minister Danny Danon as Israel’s new Ambassador to the United Nations. ZOA also congratulates Danny Danon for being appointed to this critically important post. It is especially critical during this time of increased and inappropriate hostility to Israel around the world, and due to the catastrophe of the nuclear deal with the anti-Semitic anti-American Islamic Republic of Iran.

Danny is a principled and courageous promoter of the truth of the ongoing Arab war against Israel.

I have personally known Danny Danon for over 25 years. I first met him when I was a speaker for the international pro-Israel group “Betar” at a retreat in the Pocono Mountains in 1990. Danny was international head of Betar. We maintained contact regularly, both here and in Israel. I was a speaker at the numerous Christian Zionist events he organized around the United States. The Christian attendees there frequently told me how impressed they were with Danny and their hope that he will become Israel’s Prime Minister someday.

Minister Danon and I have many mutual friends and he has spoken at ZOA’s dinners on many occasions.

Danny is a principled and courageous promoter of the truth of the ongoing Arab war against Israel. All must understand: truth is not a political position.

Minister Danon’s love of Israel and commitment to Israel is unparalleled. He has boundless energy and will pursue any and every legitimate avenue that can bring a true peace. At a difficult time like this is – we need a fearless and principled truth-teller. Danny Danon is that man. And, Danny Danon will surprise many. He will be and knows how to be a diplomatic spokesman for Israel.

I am proud of Danny Danon; I am proud to call him my friend; Prime Minister Netanyahu has chosen well.”
