OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Tuchman/Klein JPost Op-Ed: “College Leaders: Stop Antisemitism on Campus.”

The antisemitism that Rose Ritch endured at the University of Southern California (USC) has been all over the media. Ritch recently resigned as vice president of USC’s undergraduate student government after she was harassed for months by fellow students for one reason only: Ritch is proudly Jewish and openly expresses her Jewish identity by supporting the Jewish […]

OP-ED BY: By Deborah Fineblum and Sean Savage JNS: HIAS Changes Focus From Jews to Non-Jews (Incl. Many Muslims), Supporters Question HIAS’ Priorities

(September 14, 2020 / JNS)  The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, better known as HIAS, was for the better part of a century responsible for helping settle generations of Jewish refugees in their new homes in the United States. From 1881 through the release of Jews from the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, the organization worked not […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Steve Feldman ZOA Fought to Remove Farrakhan-Loving Jew-Hater From Top NAACP Post – Jewish Press

The tenure of vile Jew-hater and Nation of Islam leader Rodney Muhammad as president of the Philadelphia branch of the NAACP may be coming to a close. Yet, stubborn questions remain. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has worked hard to shed light on the depth of Rodney Muhammad’s incessant efforts to incite anger, resentment, […]

OP-ED BY: By Morton A. Klein, ZOA National President ZOA’s Klein – JCRC/Boston’s Far Left J Street/ New Israel Fund/Reform Judaism Women/Socialist Workmen’s Circle Dangerous Attempt to Silence ZOA – Boston Jewish Advocate

The relentless, previously failed attempts of extremist groups J Street and New Israel Fund (NIF) to demonize, silence, and “cancel” strong defenders of Israel and the Jewish people, is now being repeated by JCRC (“JCRC pushed to oust ZOA,” The Jewish Advocate, Sept. 4, 2020), who always prided itself on dialogue and having a “ […]

OP-ED BY: Jonathan S. Tobin JNS: What are Jews, Jewish Groups Who Embrace the Black Lives Matter Movement Endorsing?

To read the statement signed by more than 600 Jewish groups last week, in which they identified their denominations, synagogues and organizations with the Black Lives Matter movement, it’s clear that they believe they are on the right side of history. The letter, which was published as a full-page ad in The New York Times on Aug. 28, is forthright […]

OP-ED BY: Isi Leibler, Jerusalem Post J Post’s Leibler Cites ZOA as Only Organization Condemning Black Lives Matter Group as Antisemitic Israel-Haters

Civilization is currently facing the greatest threats since the rise of Nazism. Coronavirus and its social and economic byproducts have resulted in global waves of populism, accompanied by violent demonstrations initiated from elements of the extreme left and right. These elements, in particular the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in America, are exploiting racial issues […]

OP-ED BY: Isi Leibler, Jerusalem Post J Post – Dershowitz, Because of Apparently Baseless Accusations, Gets Few Pro-Israel Speaking Invitations

On Friday, August 14, The Jerusalem Post Frontlines section featured a massive two-page article by David Brinn about allegations leveled against American lawyer and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz. As I read it, my thoughts reverted to the ordeal endured by US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when the #MeToo movement attempted to smear him over alleged […]

OP-ED BY: ZOA National President Morton A. Klein Shmuley Boteach’s Negative Response to Ice Cube’s Positive Public Outreach to Jews Is Wrongheaded

It is no pleasure for me to show that Shmuley Boteach again carelessly gets things wrong or distorts truths. Shmuley condemns me, asserting that after my two-hour conversation with Black rapper/actor/director/screenwriter Ice Cube, I “granted clemency for his antisemitism through private conversations, rather than public penance.”  (“Celebrity Antisemites Can’t be Absolved through Private Apologies,” Algemeiner, […]

OP-ED BY: David M. Weinberg The Truth About the Sovereignty Issue

According to critics, application of Israeli law to security and settlement zones in Judea and Samaria will ruin everything. It will undermine the “peace process” (as if there was one), and wreck Israel’s international reputation (as if everybody loved Israel nowadays). Critics say attaining sovereignty will undermine the peace process and ruin Israel’s reputation abroad, but these […]

OP-ED BY: Jonathan S. Tobin, JNS Jns: Jewish Orgs. Supporting Black Lives Matter Group Ignore Bloody Chaos BLM Has Enabled

Most groups that represent the interests of American Jews have made their opinions clear. They believe it is imperative that there should be no doubt about the community’s support for the Black Lives Matter movement. That was illustrated by a declaration of broad backing from more than 600 Jewish organizations and synagogues in June. The signatories believed […]
