Steve Bannon Strongly Supports Israel and Jews – ZOA Klein’s Forward Article

I am a child of Holocaust survivors, born in a displaced persons camp in Germany, and lost most of my aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents to the evil horror of the Nazis. I’ve spent decades fighting against anti-Semites and Israel-haters of every stripe, from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to Ku Klux Klan Grand […]

Mort Klein: Jerusalem Was Never Holy to Muslims

It’s time to end the propaganda myth that Jerusalem is holy to Muslims. Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish nation under King David and other Jewish kings for hundreds of years. The U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 stated: “In 1996, the State of Israel will celebrate the 3,000th anniversary of the Jewish presence […]

Newsmax: ZOA Demands MSNBC Joy Reid Apologize for Insensitive Nazi Joke

The Zionist Organization of America is demanding MSNBC’s Joy Reid apologize and retract an insensitive tweet that referenced Nazis while joking about the resignation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka from President Donald Trump’s administration. Reid claimed Gorka was fired (he actually resigned) and tweeted, “#DidNaziThatComing” as part of her comment. Gorka was the deputy assistant to […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein, Elizabeth Berney and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed: Critics Fail to Refute ZOA’s Concerns about NSC’s McMaster

The Zionist Organization of America’s August 2017 report detailed US National Security Chief General H.R. McMaster’s troubling record regarding Iran, Israel and radical Islamist terrorism. McMaster’s statements and actions appear to be diametrically opposed to President Donald Trump’s support for Israel, opposition to the Iran nuclear deal and determination to name and combat radical Islamist terrorism. Critics […]

OP-ED Mort Klein – The Impossible Deal: Establishing a Peaceful Palestinian Arab State that Accepts the Jewish State

The Israelis whose lives are at stake and the authentic U.S. pro-Israel community have long understood that a Palestinian Arab state would be a Hamas-Fatah-ISIS-Iranian regime terrorist state that endangers Israel’s heartland. Such a state would be a launching pad for non-stop attacks on innocent Israeli civilians. Indeed, the Maagar-Mochot poll in January found that Israelis overwhelmingly […]

JPost Article on US Jewish Community Criticizes ADL, Praises ZOA

The chaos enveloping American Jewry since the election of President Donald Trump—which many predicted would be merely a passing phenomenon—has in fact increased exponentially over the past few months. It is concurrent with the turmoil prevailing at all levels inside the new administration. However, it is precisely at such a turbulent time, when the leadership […]

OP-ED BY: Steve Feldman, Lee Bender, and Kevin Ross ZOA Op-Ed: Waters’ Support of BDS, Criticism of Israel Worthy of Denigration – Jewish Exponent

Roger Waters, the former Pink Floyd bass player, is part of a chorus of activists who claim that they are not anti-Israel nor anti-Jewish, but rather that they are pro-“Palestinian.” By many media accounts, the Palestinian-Arabs are beset with societal problems — not enough energy, poor sewage systems, no opportunity for political dissent; neither the […]

Rabbinical Group: Forward’s Attacks on Mort Klein ‘An Embarrassment to Jewish Journalism’

The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), a national organization representing hundreds of Orthodox Rabbis, today denounced The Forward newspaper as “an embarrassment to Jewish journalism” after it published a vitriolic piece by Steven Davidson claiming Morton Klein, Director of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), had views that were a “bigger threat” to Israel and Jews than Linda […]

S.F. JWeekly: ZOA Takes Action Against Anti-Semitism at California High School

On Monday morning Aug. 21, 14-year-old Natasha Waldorf, who is Jewish, will start her sophomore year at Alameda High School. In her class will be one of two boys who taunted her last semester, sending her text messages that included the word “kike” and other anti-Semitic insults, and the image of product mascot Mr. Clean […]

Glick: Charlottesville, Trump, Jews, ZOA’s Klein

On Wednesday, President Reuven Rivlin sent a letter of support to the American Jewish community in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday. On the surface, his move made sense – the largest Diaspora community is concerned about the growing profile of viciously antisemitic forces on the Right. But at a deeper […]
