OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Elizabeth A. Berney, Esq. ZOA’s Klein/Berney JNS Op-Ed: Biden Includes Many Countries in Iran Talks – But Excludes Israel

It is deeply troubling that a Biden administration seems poised to ignore Israel’s life-or-death concerns about Iran and to instead precipitously re-enter the disastrous Iran deal, lift sanctions and exclude Israel from Iran deal negotiations. In a New York Times interview with Thomas Friedman on Dec. 2, projected President-elect Joe Biden stated that, if Iran returns to the soon-to-expire […]

OP-ED BY: Jonathan S. Tobin, JNS Why Are Jews Trying to Undermine the Fight Against Jew-Hatred?

A group of 122 Palestinian academics, journalists, writers and filmmakers signed a letter last month taking issue with the widespread adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Association (IHRA)’s definition of anti-Semitism.

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, ZOA National President ZOA’s Klein JNS Op-Ed—Top Contender for Biden’s Press Secretary is a Jew-Hating Israelophobe

After networks projected that Joe Biden would win the presidential election, he pledged to the American public: “I promise you this: I will be a president for all Americans—whether you voted for me or not.” Biden made the same promise as his central election campaign theme; he reiterated this promise in town halls, debates and social media. Keeping this promise […]

OP-ED BY: Shelley Benveniste, The Jewish Press ZOA’s Florida Campaign Successfully Results in Firing of Holocaust-Denying Principal

Why is it that the ZOA is the only Jewish organization in America that initiated instant condemnation of Ilhan Omar’s latest antisemitic drumbeat against Israel?

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Elizabeth A. Berney, Esq. ZOA’s Klein/Berney JNS Oped: Don’t Believe J Street’s Misleading Polls

J Street just released a new deceptive “push poll” that, like J Street’s previous “polls,” uses shady practices to grossly overstate Jewish community support for J Street’s anti-Israel agenda and for J Street’s endorsed presidential candidate Joe Biden. J Street employed classic “sampling error” to distort its poll results in its favor: J Street surveyed a […]
