OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA Op-Ed in Jewish News on Booker’s Guest, Shedeed

Rabbi Clifford Kulwin naively and wrongly claims that Ahmed Shedeed, president of the Islamic Center of New Jersey, whom U.S. Sen. Cory Booker brought as his guest to the State of the Union address, “is precisely the kind of Muslim we Jews should be praising, and reaching out to.” (“The kind of Muslim leader we […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein & Susan Tuchman, Esq. ZOA Op-Ed in J Weekly: Double Standard Prevails Amid Threats to U.C. Berkeley Jews

After years of urging the University of California Board of Regents to take a strong stand against campus anti-Semitism, the regents will soon be issuing a statement that will hopefully address the problem in a meaningful way. But as regent Bonnie Reiss eloquently stated at the board’s November meeting, the hostile climate for Jewish students […]

OP-ED BY: Cliff Rieders, Esq. Op-ed by ZOA Board’s Cliff Rieders on Iran Deal

There was a time when the number one item on the liberal agenda was fear of nuclear proliferation.  I remember as a child my mother hearing reports of Strontium 90 in milk as a result of atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons.  She traveled to Cow Lane, which was the last remaining dairy farm in our […]

OP-ED BY: Morton Klein and Liz Berney, Esq. ZOA Op-ed in Washington Jewish Week About Iran’s Planning of 9-11

It’s a frightening irony.  This September 11th, we will mourn 3,000 innocent lives snuffed out during the worst terrorist attack on our homeland.  And at the very same time, our President and a minority of Congress is ramming through a catastrophic deal that will provide hundreds of billions of dollars and a path to nuclear […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein & Daniel Mandel Op-Ed: Obama Constantly Sacrifices Israeli Security

Few seem to have noticed that President Barack Obama has scattered to the winds bipartisan Israeli reservations regarding establishing a Palestinian state.  In a recent interview on Israel Television Channel 2, President Obama was quizzed on his public rejection of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election statement that he continues to adhere to his 2009 […]

OP-ED BY: Morton Klein and Elizabeth Berney, Esq. ZOA Op-ed in NY Jewish Week Criticizing Jewish BDS Groups

Ameinu’s inaccurate Opinion piece invokes the “straw man” of non-existent “murder charges” to distract readers from the real issue: namely, that Ameinu’s “Hatikvah” slate should have been removed from the World Zionist Congress (WZC) election because its members promote discriminatory anti-Israel anti-Jewish boycotts, divestment and/or sanctions (BDS).   Ameinu falsely claims that “Hatikvah” slate groups […]

OP-ED BY: Susan Tuchman and Mort Klein Tuchman/Klein Op-Ed in Major Pitts. Paper, Criticizing Univ. of Pitt. for Incentivizing Attendance at Anti-Israel Event

Last month at the University of Pittsburgh, two anti-Israel groups — Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) — co-sponsored Holocaust Remembrance Day: Edith Bell on Palestine. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) and many others were offended by the misappropriation of Yom HaShoah to attack Israel. Even more concerning […]

OP-ED BY: Morton Klein and Daniel Mandel Wash Times ZOA Op-ed: Obama’s Inconsistent Treatment of Netanyahu and Abbas

In recent weeks, President Barack Obama condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for appropriately opposing a Palestinian state because Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah Party-controlled Palestinian Authority (PA) has not only merged with the terrorist group Hamas, but also hasn’t met any of the conditions Netanyahu required in his 2009 conditional acceptance of Palestinian statehood, such as […]

OP-ED BY: Daniel Mandel Israelis Go With a Firm Leader: Opposing View

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to have won a handsome election victory following a grueling campaign, complete with foreign government money, including indirectly from the U.S. State Department, going to his opponents. In order to win, Netanyahu is held now to have reneged on his 2009 in-principle, hedged commitment to reaching a peace agreement with […]

OP-ED BY: Susan Tuchman and Morton Klein Universities Punish Bigotry, But Not When It’s Anti-Jewish

Last week, the University of Oklahoma appropriately responded, swiftly and strongly, when members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity sang anti-black chants that included the “n” word and references to lynching.  The university expelled two students and shut down the entire fraternity chapter, even though not all the fraternity members were involved in the incident.  […]
