OP-ED Designating Etzion Bloc State Land Threatens No Genuine Peace Process

While the Middle East burns and tens of thousands of corpses pile up in Syria and Iraq, Jewish residence anywhere beyond the 1949 armistice lines –– eastern Jerusalem, Judea/Samaria (West Bank) transfixes the attention of foreign governments.

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA: Poof, the magic settlements!

When Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah/Palestinian Authority (PA) signed a reconciliation agreement with Hamas, a recognized terrorist group that calls in its Charter for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews, the State Department’s spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, observed, “It’s hard to see how Israel can be expected to negotiate with a government that does not […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein Gov. Christie, His “Occupied Territory” Remark, and Radical Islam

Last week, potential presidential candidate, Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, spoke to hundreds of  Jews at the pro-Israel Republican Jewish Coalition meeting  at the Las Vegas’ Palazzo hotel. Surprisingly, Christie didn’t mention Israel in his prepared remarks but during the Q &A, he inaccurately referred to Judea and Samaria as “occupied territories.”  This is the language […]

OP-ED BY: Michael Goldblatt ZOA: Pal. Lies & Denial About Jewish Connection & Rights in J’lem Must Stop Now

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has pointed to the surreal situation in which Israel is presently under American pressure to make concessions to Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah/Palestinian Authority (PA) when Abbas’ PA actively continues to deny the Jewish connection to Israel in general and Jerusalem in particular and to demand an end to Jewish rights […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, National President of the ZOA With Geneva, Military Force Only Remaining Option To Stop Iranian Nukes

  The interim nuclear agreement between the P5+1 (Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States as well as Germany) and Iran is a disaster.

Before entering the White House, President Barack Obama promised repeatedly to do “everything, everything” to prevent the Iranian regime obtaining nuclear weapons.

OP-ED BY: Mort Klein and Sue Tuchman U.S. Government Doesn’t Enforce Law Protecting Jewish Students

With the start of a new school year, there’s reason to be concerned:  Anti-Semitism is a serious problem on some college campuses, causing Jewish students to feel threatened and even fear for their safety.  Yet the U.S. government is not enforcing the law to protect them.  Legal protection exists, at least in theory.  After a […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, ZOA Jerusalem is Holy to Jews, Not to Muslims

This week marked Jerusalem Day, the anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem under Jewish sovereignty during the 1967 Six Day War. It is not every day that an ancient people comes into repossession of its holiest city and age-old capital in a victorious war over enemies who, literally only a week before, had been waxing […]

OP-ED BY: Michael Palmer with Jeff Daube Where’s the Justice for American Settler Killed by Palestinian Stone-Throwers?

Two FBI special agents sat across from me in a conference room at the J. Edgar Hoover Building, in Washington. It was late October last year, shortly after Sukkot. We were discussing the deaths of my son Asher Palmer, and my grandson Yonatan Palmer, who were murdered on a Friday afternoon, September 23, 2011. That […]

OP-ED Op-Ed: Israel-Basher/Iran Apologist Hagel May Become Defense Sec.

Credible and widespread reports that former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) is likely to be nominated by President Barak Obama for Secretary of Defense has rightly shocked Israel’s supporters and those who want to prevent Iran obtaining a nuclear weapons capacity. Little wonder: Hagel has accrued a record on Capitol Hill as an apologist for Iran […]
