OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed: Trump’s Jerusalem Action Will Promote Peace

With his December 6 statement, President Donald Trump has fulfilled his pre-election promise, repeated since his election in November 2016 and also consistent with the Republican Party’s platform, that he will move the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel’s capital. In doing so, he has ended a 22-year epoch in which the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Klein Condemns New School for Inviting Jew-Hater Sarsour to Discuss Anti-Semitism

Imagine a college convening a panel to discuss “Antisemitism and the Struggle for Justice,” that features a woman who seeks the destruction of the Jewish state, and who publicly stands with and supports a Palestinian-Arab terrorist who was convicted of murdering Jewish college students. That is precisely what The New School in New York City […]

OP-ED BY: Steve Feldman, Lee Bender and Kevin Ross ZOA Op-Ed About Anti-Semitism

We were heartened to learn that a Philadelphia synagogue is offering an adult education course about anti-Semitism, a timeless scourge that every generation must combat. But why is the course seemingly prompted, as its website suggests, solely by Christian sources of Jew-hatred and August’s despicable anti-Jewish events in Charlottesville—rather than July’s equally despicable calls in […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein Mort Klein: Dividing Jerusalem Would Be a Security Nightmare for Israel

In recent Congressional hearings on the question of transferring the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, some, such as former U.S. ambassador to Israel under the Obama Administration, Dan Shapiro, have argued that dividing Jerusalem between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs in the context of a peace agreement would provide […]

OP-ED BY: Susan Tuchman ZOA’s Tuchman Published Letter in the NJ Standard: Gubernatorial Candidate Phil Murphy’s Failure to Condemn BDS

In urging that we all stand up against anti-Semitism (“It’s Time to Urgently Speak Out Against Anti-Semitism in All Forms,” Oct. 20), Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy lost an important opportunity to speak out against a current, serious manifestation of the problem: the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel. Mr. Murphy should have made […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Mort Klein in Breitbart: Opposing Israel-Basher David Myers Appt. to Head Ctr for Jewish History.

  “Fake history” and “big lies” are key weapons used to attack and discredit America’s close ally Israel and to incite hatred and violence against Jews throughout the world. The relentless assault on the truth by the anti-Israel far left is downright dangerous – especially when it comes from individuals ostensibly within the Jewish community. […]

OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. and David Kadosh ZOA Op-Ed: Fighting Anti-Semitism in California Schools

For years, Jewish college students across the country have been harassed and intimidated.  Frighteningly, this ugly problem is seeping into our high schools and even our middle and elementary schools. In Alameda, California, middle and elementary schools have been defaced with swastikas and a Jewish elementary school student reportedly received a death threat.  Under pressure […]

OP-ED Exclusive – ZOA’s Mort Klein: Jerusalem Was Never Holy to Muslims

It’s time to end the propaganda myth that Jerusalem is holy to Muslims. Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish nation under King David and other Jewish kings for hundreds of years. The U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 stated: “In 1996, the State of Israel will celebrate the 3,000th anniversary of the Jewish presence […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, Elizabeth Berney and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed: Critics Fail to Refute ZOA’s Concerns about NSC’s McMaster

The Zionist Organization of America’s August 2017 report detailed US National Security Chief General H.R. McMaster’s troubling record regarding Iran, Israel and radical Islamist terrorism. McMaster’s statements and actions appear to be diametrically opposed to President Donald Trump’s support for Israel, opposition to the Iran nuclear deal and determination to name and combat radical Islamist terrorism. Critics […]

OP-ED Mort Klein – The Impossible Deal: Establishing a Peaceful Palestinian Arab State that Accepts the Jewish State

The Israelis whose lives are at stake and the authentic U.S. pro-Israel community have long understood that a Palestinian Arab state would be a Hamas-Fatah-ISIS-Iranian regime terrorist state that endangers Israel’s heartland. By Morton A. Klein (AUGUST 25, 2017 / BREITBART) Such a state would be a launching pad for non-stop attacks on innocent Israeli civilians. […]
