OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA Op-Ed: The Impossible Deal – A Palestinian Arab State Solution

It was exhilarating to watch US President Donald Trump, at his press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, refuse to parrot the tired, irrational, dangerous mantra that a Palestinian state is the only option for peace. Instead, Trump wisely spoke about real peace; creative solutions; ending the Palestinian-Arabs’ teaching of “tremendous hate” to their […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed in NY Daily News: Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Now

With Donald Trump in the White House, speculation is mounting: Does he intend to act on his pre-election promise, dating back to January 2016 and reaffirmed both before and since his election, that he will transfer the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, in accordance with standard diplomatic practice and the 1995 […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel Op-Ed: Move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and Do it Soon

With Donald Trump in the White House, speculation is mounting: Does he intend to act on his pre-election promise, dating back to January 2016 and reaffirmed both before and since his election, that he will transfer the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, in accordance with standard diplomatic practice and the 1995 […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Elizabeth Berney, Esq. ZOA Op-Ed in FORWARD: ZOA Supporting Trump Refugee Ban is Moral Imperative

The left’s confusion about what constitutes “morality” compels us to respond to Forward editor Jane Eisner’s criticism of Zionist Organization of America because ZOA supports President Trump’s executive order titled “Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States.” Most Americans, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, agree with ZOA: Americans overwhelmingly favor Trump’s […]

OP-ED BY: Caroline B. Glick, The Jerusalem Post Our World: Netanyahu, Congress, AIPAC and the PLO

It is not in the least surprising that the PLO-controlled Palestinian Authority did not condemn the terrorist attack on Sunday. It is not surprising because the PLO-controlled PA encouraged the attack. As Khaled Abu Toameh wrote for the Gatestone Institute, in the aftermath of last month’s US-enabled passage of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which […]

OP-ED Kerry’s Anti Israel Speech Wrongly Focuses on Israel Not Palestinian Intransigence

Kerry’s anti Israel speech wrongly focuses on Israel, not Palestinian Intransigence.  In his speech, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spewed anti-Semitic, anti-Israel vitriol, lies, and policies that endanger innocent Israeli lives.  Kerry proposed creating a Hamas-Fatah-Palestinian-Arab state, which will be a terrorist state,  in the Jewish heartland that divides Jerusalem in two, would forcibly […]

OP-ED BY: Ben Chouake, MD (Dr. Ben) VP, ZOA Op-Ed: Keith Ellison and the DNC: A Troubling Pick for America’s Oldest Political Party

I have been involved in federal elections for about 50 years. I recall as a student advocating first for Humphrey and then McGovern when they ran against Nixon. Still vivid to me is when I got the news that Nixon won on the radio of my old Dodge Dart, I gripped the steering wheel in […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA Criticizes ADL Praising Anti-Semitic Ellison, DNC Chair Contender – While Falsely Condemning Trump Aide Bannon of Anti-Semitism

  ZOA Strongly criticizes ADL for praising the anti-Semitic Cong. Keith Ellison, a leading candidate for the Democratic National Committee Chair – despite the volumes of evidence about Ellison’s longstanding record of Israel-bashing and anti-Semitism. Appallingly, ADL head Jonathan Greenblatt (on twitter) characterized Ellison as an “important ally in the fight against anti-Semitism” and “on […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA Op-Ed: Why ZOA Opposes a Palestinian Arab State

The ZOA has for years opposed the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state. Under prevailing conditions of ongoing Palestinian incitement to hatred and murder, demand for a judenrein Palestinian state and the so-called ‘right of return’ of Palestinian refugees and their millions of descendants to Israel; erasure and denial of Jewish history; assaults on Israel in […]

OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. and Morton A. Klein ZOA Op-Ed: A Troubling Silence about Anti-Semitism at the University of Michigan

For many Jewish students at the University of Michigan, their celebration of the Jewish New Year was unjustly marred by feelings of pain and ostracism.  On Rosh Hashanah, a campus group called “Students Allied for Freedom and Equality” (SAFE) erected a so-called “apartheid” wall and mock Israeli checkpoints on the Diag, in the center of […]
