OP-ED Let Self-Haters Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield Choke on Their Woke – Israel National News

By Rabbi Prof. Dov Fischer (ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS / JULY 20, 2021) You think Jews cannot be Jew-haters? Does any serious, open-minded non-Woke American still really believe that Jews are all “in it together”? How foolish! Even as Ilhan Omar is the worst Jew-hater in Congress, with salutatorian going to Rashida Tlaib and honorable mentions for New […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, ZOA National President ZOA’s Klein JNS Op-Ed: Coalition Deal With Anti-Zionist Ra’am Islamist Party is Extremely Dangerous

(June 9, 2021 / JNS) The formation of an Israeli governing coalition with the anti-Zionist Islamist movement (Ra’am), and the reported concessions granted to Ra’am in the coalition agreement are extremely dangerous and inimical to Israel’s security, the rule of law, Israeli election integrity and may handcuff Israel’s free decision-making ability.

Adhering to facts and historical truths is vital for any nonfiction writer, especially for high-profile writers with enormous power to shape the public’s thinking. Yet former President Barack Obama’s account of Middle East history in his recently published memoir, A Promised Land, is riddled with factual errors and misleading statements and omits material facts.

OP-ED BY: Elizabeth A. Berney, Esq. Jerusalem Post-JCRC/Boston Attacking ZOA for Criticizing BLM’s Israel Hatred is Undeserved Abuse

In the 1930s, the great Zionist Ze’ev Jabotinsky traveled throughout Europe, warning Jews to flee to Israel from the Nazi “volcano that will soon spew out its flames of extermination.” The Jewish Left rewarded Jabotinsky’s efforts to save European Jewry by calling Jabotinsky “a Nazi.” Absurd?
