OP-ED BY: Stephen Flatow, JNS What Is It With J Street and Antisemites, Incl. Supporting Carter, Sarsour, James Baker? JNS, Stephen Flatow

(April 15, 2021 / JNS) Why does J Street keep honoring and defending individuals who have made antisemitic remarks? The latest is former President Jimmy Carter, who will receive an award from J Street at its upcoming convention on April 18. I’m not saying that Carter’s numerous attacks on Israel—as ugly and unfair as they […]

(NOVEMBER 30, 2011 / JERUSALEM POST) I recently had the fascinating experience of attending the 114th national anniversary dinner of the Zionist Organization of America in New York.

The American terror victims of the 2001 suicide bombing at the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem have never gotten the justice they deserve. U.S. law authorizes the prosecution and punishment of a terrorist who murders Americans abroad. Yet the mastermind of the Sbarro bombing, Ahlam Tamimi, lives openly and freely in Jordan, and is treated like a […]

Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, President Joe Biden’s pick to be Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), faces opposition over her anti-Israel record, including fateful lame-duck vote in 2016 to abstain from a UN Security Council Resolution declaring the Israeli presence in Jerusalem illegal, allowing it to pass. Traditionally, the U.S. had […]

OP-ED BY: David Isaac, World Israel News ZOA’s Klein Quoted – World Israel News: Where’s the Outrage? U.S. Jewish Groups Mum on Anti-Israel Pentagon Pick

“Pro-Israel groups launch blitz against Kahl nomination for top Pentagon job,” read the Jewish News Syndicate headline on March 15. The headline isn’t untrue. The problem is that there were just two groups, one of them Christian. How’s that line go again “If I am not for myself…”? There should have been a chorus of protest from […]

Even during this pandemic, when many college students are learning remotely and are not on campus, antisemitic harassment is still a serious problem. Much of it continues to be perpetrated by the anti-Israel hate group that calls itself “Students for Justice in Palestine” (SJP). Recently, SJP bullied a Jewish student at Tufts University, threatening him with a disciplinary […]

First, there was Maher Bitar, a Palestinian-American and anti-Israel BDS activist, whom Biden has appointed to be the senior director of intelligence programs at the National Security Council. In this key intelligence role, Maher Bitar will be ideally situated to learn, for example, about American collaboration with Israel on moves to stop Iran’s nuclear program. […]

OP-ED BY: Dominic Green Here Comes Trouble: Biden’s Anti-Israel Advisers (ZOA Cited)- The Jewish Chronicle

“This is the worst group of appointments to cabinet positions with respect to U.S.-Israel relations ever,” Morton Klein told me earlier this week. Klein is the leader of the Zionist Organization of America, the largest conservative group in Jewish American politics. Biden, Klein says, is stacking his administration with Obama-era staffers hostile to Israel and […]

OP-ED Joe Biden Is Barack Obama’s Third Term, ZOA Cites Numerous Hostile-to-Israel Appts – JPost Columnist Michael Freund

Joe Biden has been in the White House for less than a month so it is perhaps too early to gauge what his comprehensive policy towards Israel will be. But if his initial moves are any indication, the Jewish state might want to grab a diplomatic sweater or two and begin bracing itself for a […]
