The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), ZOA President Morton Klein, ZOA Chair Dr. Michael Goldblatt, and all of ZOA’s Board of Directors, staff and members congratulate our new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to Germany Rick Grenell on their Senate confirmations, and wish them all the best and much success in their new posts. Secretary Pompeo and Ambassador Grenell both have the extensive experience, knowledge and impeccable credentials that will enable them to provide effective, masterful representation to the United States during these sensitive and dangerous times. Secretary Pompeo and Ambassador Grenell are also both extraordinarily strong supporters of Israel, understand the reality of the Arab-Islamic war against Israel and the West and are poised to strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship.
ZOA looks forward to working with these remarkable public servants for the benefit of the US, Israel and the world.
The ZOA is proud to have supported Secretary Pompeo’s and Ambassador Grenell’s nominations from the outset. (See “ZOA Congratulates CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Secretary of State Nomination,” Mar. 13, 2018; “ZOA Praises Sen. Coons for Urging Vote to Confirm Pro-Israel Nominee Ric Grenell for U.S. Amb. to Germany; Urges Other Senators to Do So,” Mar. 22, 2018; “ZOA Letter to Sen. Foreign Relations Committee Endorsing Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State,” Apr. 11, 2018.)
ZOA also thanks the many Senators who put aside partisan politics to vote to confirm Secretary Pompeo and Ambassador Grenell, thereby making it possible for our country to have such outstanding representation.
