OP-ED ZOA Article: Democratic Party Fails To Condemn Antisemitic Reps. Omar, Tlaib, AOC

Perhaps the most remarkable and disquieting aspect of the revelation that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is employing three senior advisers with records of involvement in anti-Semitic incidents is the disinterest it has engendered in Democratic circles across the board. First, it emerged that Senator Sanders’ campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, and his senior […]

OP-ED ZOA’s Klein Op-ed: Palestinian Culture Rewards and Glorifies Murdering Jews

Though Israelis are scarcely surprised by the phenomenon of Palestinian terrorism, they were nonetheless sickened by the recent rape of a 19-year old girl, Ori Ansbacher, by Arafat Irfaiya, a 29-year old Palestinian Arab from Hebron. Upon capture by Israeli forces, Irfaiya made plain the motive underlying his foul deed when he told his interrogators, […]

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has spent two weeks proving that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made a big mistake promoting her to the House Foreign Affairs Committee — an error that is hurting her party and the country.

OP-ED BY: Steve Feldman, ZOA Philadelphia Executive DIrector ZOA Phila. Director Op-Ed: Temple’s Antisemitic, Israel-Hating Marc Lamont Hill Must be Fired

He has falsely accused the Jewish state of poisoning the Palestinian-Arab water supply, practicing “apartheid” and training New York City police to kill black Americans — rhetoric that is bound to sow resentment against Jews and potentially incite violence. “When we struggle together we too often adopt a civil rights tradition which romanticizes nonviolence.… And […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, ZOA National President Jewish Press | ZOA’s Klein Op-Ed – Rep. Tlaib’s Vicious Anti-Semitism

That didn’t take long. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), newly elected to the U.S. Congress, has already posted a “correction” to the world map in her congressional office, marking Israel as “Palestine.” She has thus effectively indicated her support for the Palestinian Arab objective of eliminating the Jewish state of Israel on her first day in office. […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, ZOA President & Mark Levenson, Esq., ZOA Chair Jerusalem Post- Despite Demand to Tone Down, ZOA Remains Zealous Advocate for Jews/Israel

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.

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 […]
