OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. and Alan Jay ZOA Op-Ed in Jersey News: Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem is Step Toward Real Peace

Last month, when President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, he made it crystal clear why:  “This is nothing more, or less, than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.” Trump was right.  He was finally doing what Presidents Clinton, Bush and […]

OP-ED BY: Sharona Whisler ZOA Op-Ed in Florida Paper: J Street is Not Pro-Israel

Rabbi Bruce Warshal’s recent op-ed “Intolerance is a Grievous Stain on Jewish History,” specifically mischaracterizes the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest pro-Israel organization in the country, dedicated to Israel advocacy and the safety and security of Israel. ZOA is non-partisan: ZOA members, officials, staff, speakers, and honorees come from all streams of Judaism […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA’s Klein Op-Ed in FORWARD: Pence’s Great Pro-Israel Knesset Speech

In his historic speech to the Knesset in Jerusalem, Vice-President Mike Pence reaffirmed American recognition that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, described the Jewish people’s 3,000-year-old unbreakable bond with Jerusalem, stated that the US will transfer the US Embassy to Jerusalem by the end of 2019, thereby having chosen “fact over fiction,” called upon Mahmoud Abbas’s […]

OP-ED BY: Susan B. Tuchman, Esq. and David Kadosh ZOA Op-ed in Berkeleyside News: Did Pro-BDS Councilwoman Illegally Use Israel Views as Basis for Appointment?

It should go without saying that every appointment to a city government position must be based on qualifications alone, not on someone’s personal political beliefs that have nothing to do with the effective administration of the city’s affairs. Yet consider Berkeley City Councilwoman Cheryl Davila, an open supporter of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions […]

OP-ED ZOA’s Mort Klein in Breitbart- Abbas Unmasked as Anti-Semitic Israel-Hating Anti-Peace Terrorist

The Zionist Organization of America condemns Palestinian Authority (PA) dictator Mahmoud Abbas’s obscene speech personally attacking President Donald Trump, the president’s beautiful family, Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Ambassador David Friedman, as well as the United States and Israel. Abbas’ rambling, unhinged, venomous two-hour speech to the Palestinian Central Council on Sunday evening (January 14) was […]

OP-ED ZOA Op-ed in JNS: Banning BDS Groups is Necessary & Just

Israel’s decision to finally ban 20 of the worst organizations leading the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is necessary for the country’s security, and is sensible and just. BDS is a political and economic warfare movement, often combined with violence and intimidation, that is aimed at eradicating the Jewish state. No sovereign nation should […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed: Terrorism and Iran are Mideast’s Biggest Problems

Are we on the threshold of a new era in US Middle East policy? Perhaps. A draft of President Donald Trump’s new national security strategy, which makes significant departures from that issued by his predecessor, Barack Obama, in 2015, provides the following clue: “For generations the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has been understood […]

OP-ED Mort Klein in Breitbart: UN Had No Legal Right to Vote Condemning Trump on Jerusalem

The United Nations General Assembly resolution criticizing President Donald Trump’s sovereign right to recognize Israel’s capital, violates at least three articles of the United Nations Charter, and is not within the power of the UN General Assembly to address, for the following reasons: (1) UN Charter Article 2(7) prohibits the United Nations from dealing with […]

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 […]
