OP-ED BY: Shelley Benveniste, The Jewish Press ZOA’s Florida Campaign Successfully Results in Firing of Holocaust-Denying Principal

Witnessing the vacillation of the Palm Beach County School Board has been a truly sobering experience.

The dismissal was a result of his shocking email exchange with a parent. Latson had written, “I […]

OP-ED BY: Barry Shaw, Israel National News Why Are U.S. Jewish Organizations, Except ZOA, Silent About Congressional Antisemitism? Israel Natl News

Why is it that the ZOA is the only Jewish organization in America that initiated instant condemnation of Ilhan Omar’s latest antisemitic drumbeat against Israel?

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Elizabeth A. Berney, Esq. ZOA’s Klein/Berney JNS Oped: Don’t Believe J Street’s Misleading Polls

J Street just released a new deceptive “push poll” that, like J Street’s previous “polls,” uses shady practices to grossly overstate Jewish community support for J Street’s anti-Israel agenda and for J Street’s endorsed presidential candidate Joe Biden. J Street employed classic “sampling error” to distort its poll results in its favor: J Street surveyed a […]

President Trump – fighting for re-election in America – has now lifted restrictions on American federal investment in science, research and agriculture projects undertaken in Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria (West Bank).

The Trump administration took another strong step in supporting Israel and the rights of the Jewish people.

OP-ED BY: Sharona Whisler, ZOA Florida Executive Director ZOA Miami Herald Op-Ed: School Board Sends Dangerous Message by Rehiring Holocaust Denier

This month, the Palm Beach County School Board disgracefully decided, in a 4-3 vote, to rehire Holocaust denier William Latson, former principal of Spanish River High School in Boca Raton.

OP-ED BY: Elizabeth A. Berney, Esq. ZOA JNS Article: Left’s Attempt to Embed Anti-Israel Cancel Culture Into WZO

At the “virtual” World Zionist Congress scheduled to take place next week, the far-left will attempt to pass two proposed resolutions to embed “cancel culture” and hostile-to-Israel “J Street U” into the World Zionist Organization. First, under the misleading guise of “unity of the Jewish people,” the far-left “Arzenu” and “World Union of Meretz” are […]

OP-ED BY: Daniel Greenfield Black Lived Matter Leaders Support Violent Riots & Looting

After the recent toll of mostly peaceful Black Lives Matter rioting wrecked cities and tilted the polls toward Trump, Joe Biden and even Kamala Harris began condemning “violence.” Biden has said meaningless things like “we condemn the violence,” and “I condemn this violence unequivocally,” as if violence were an independent entity. Condemning violence, like condemning […]
