“I’m not privy to the dialogue involving ZOA and its President Mort Klein within the family of Jewish organizations, but I can speak to the fact of Mort’s strong and courageous and proud leadership for the Jewish people, Zionist causes and Israel. Mort is certainly bold and outspoken, but it’s one of the reasons I have such appreciation and respect for him and for ZOA.
“These are not timid times, but times of increasing levels of anti-Semitism and intense and often violent hostility toward Jews in general and Israel in particular. It’s refreshing to see the brilliance, clarity and strength with which Mort and ZOA speak to those individuals or groups who threaten Jews and seeks to undermine the rights of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
“Mort’s many lectures he has given, to my large Christian groups on our Israel trips and in America, have informed and educated hundreds of Christians to increase their love for Israel and knowledge about the reality of the Arab-Israel issues. We understand Israel’s difficult situation so much better after a Mort Klein lecture and after reading his insightful articles.
“In my many years of knowing and working with Mort, I have found him to be a trustworthy and honorable person who puts the cause of Zionism above himself. I’m deeply grateful for his strong voice.”
– Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR)
