OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, National President, Zionist Organization of America ZOA’s Klein LA Jewish Journal Letter: Danger- Anti-Semitism Becoming Mainstreamed

Amanda Berman provides a timely warning from Britain and its experience of Jeremy Corbyn and rising anti-Semitism on the left as to what could happen here (“A Message to My Compatriots in the American Left From Across the Pond,” Nov. 5). Fighting the normalization of anti-Semitism is the enormous challenge that American Jews have before […]

OP-ED BY: Morton Klein, ZOA National President, and Elizabeth Berney, ZOA director of Special Projects ZOA JNS Op-Ed: Texas’s Anti-BDS Law is Legal & Is Not Free Speech Issue

With the help of an anti-Israel legal group, an admitted boycotter of Israel named Bahia Amawi sued a Texas school district and the Texas attorney general this week to try to overturn the state’s excellent anti-BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) contracting law (Texas Gov. Code § 2270.001, et. seq.). Briefly, Ms. Amawi wants a renewed contract to provide speech-pathology […]

OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. and Morton A. Klein State Dep’t Sells Out Terror Victims – ZOA Op-ed in JNS

U.S. President Trump did the right thing last October when he signed the Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act (ATCA) into law. The law was sorely needed to help American victims of international terrorism. It closed loopholes in an earlier law—the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1992, which afforded a civil remedy to American victims against their terrorist attackers overseas. Loopholes […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Klein Phila Inq. Article Demands Firing of Temple Prof. Hill Due to Antisemitism

Temple University board of trustees leaders Patrick O’Connor and Mitchell Morgan and president Richard Englert have a choice to make about Marc Lamont Hill, the Steven Charles Professor of media who recently called for violence against Israel and for its destruction during a speech at the United Nations. If Temple condemns Hill, removes his academic […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Klein Breitbart Article: Danger – Antisemitism is Becoming Normalized

Today, antisemitism is appearing in the mainstream in ways that, only a few years ago, would have seemed impossible or at least highly unlikely. The organizers of last year’s Women’s March are happy to be led by Israel-hating extremists who openly seek to ostracize pro-Israeli feminists. Companies seek to boycott Israeli Jews, and only Israel […]

OP-ED BY: Bart Blatstein Phila. Inquirer: Temple Prof. Marc Hill Promotes Violence Against Jews: Fire Him Says Major Real Estate Developer Bart Blatstein

Especially after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre of 11 Jewish worshippers, universities must refuse to employ professors who call for anti-Semitic violence and destruction of the Jewish State of Israel. It is outrageous that Marc Lamont Hill is still employed as the Steven Charles professor at Temple University, after Hill showed himself to be an Israel-hating […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. ZOA Op-Ed: Jewish Leaders Must Urge Students: Use Title VI to Fight Anti-Semitism

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) recently reopened the civil rights case that the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) filed against Rutgers University. The student-backed case followed from the university’s failure to address the harassment and discrimination that Jewish students endured, in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, […]

OP-ED Mort Klein Op-Ed in Breitbart: There Is No Israeli ‘Occupation’- It’s Not Arab Land and 98 Percent of Palestinian-Arabs Live Under Arab Rule

The U.S. Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, recently made headlines for using the term “alleged occupation” during an interview with the Jerusalem Post. Palestinian Authority (“PA”) dictator and Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas condemned the term “alleged occupation” and then falsely proclaimed that there is an Israeli “occupation of the territory of the state of Palestine” and variations […]

OP-ED ZOA JNS Op-Ed: Lessons for Palestinian/Israeli Peace Prospects of Jordan Forcing Israel Off Leased Land

Jordan’s King Abdullah II, in what has been described as a “sharp tone,” announced this week that he would annul an appendix to the 1994 Israeli/Jordanian peace treaty under which certain parcels of lands in the border regions—the Naharayim (Baqura) area near the Sea of Galilee and Zofar (al Ghamar), some 80 miles north of […]

OP-ED BY: Susan Tuchman, Esq. and David Kadosh ZOA Article in SF Paper – Berkeley Council Tolerance of Anti-Semitism

Why are the city manager and the mayor of Berkeley closing their eyes to powerful evidence of anti-Semitic bigotry and discrimination in city government? Last January, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) wrote to City Manager Dee Williams-Ridley after learning that Councilmember Cheryl Davila had dismissed a qualified Berkeley resident from the city’s Transportation Commission […]
