ZOA President Morton Klein and Chair Mark Levenson, Esq. released the following statement:
The Zionist Organization thanks and commends U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for calling out the Black Lives Matter political organization for its Jew-hatred. Sen. Loeffler told Laura Ingraham on her TV show on Wednesday evening: “This organization is divisive in its goals. It’s anti-Semitic. It doesn’t support the nuclear family. And so this is what we need to understand.”
The Black Lives Matter organization is a partner of the Movement for Black Lives, according to its Website. The Movement for Black Lives Website has a doctrine that declares that the Jewish State of Israel practices “Apartheid” and commits genocide against Palestinian-Arabs, and urges an end to US aid to Israel. During Black Lives Matters demonstrations, synagogues and Jewish owned businesses were attacked with graffiti and were looted and destroyed in Los Angeles. Anti-Israel slogans have been shouted at other Black Lives Matter demonstrations, and a statue of Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust, was desecrated.
ZOA calls on all patriots and people of good conscience to join Sen. Loeffler in calling out the Black Lives Matter political organization for its Jew-hatred and its anti-Israel activities and associations, as well as it’s call to defund police and abolish prisons and the US military, as well as its call to end the nuclear family and asking young children to choose their own gender.
ZOA supports justice and fairness and equality of opportunity for all people of all races, religions, creeds and ethnicities.
