OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein ZOA Op-Ed in Exponent: ADL’s Acceptance of Johnson Apology Unconscionable

It’s wrong for the Anti-Defamation League to have failed to condemn as blatant anti-Semitism Rep. Hank Johnson’s “termites” label for Jews living in Judea and Samaria. It’s also wrong for the ADL to have accepted Johnson’s phony apology tweet. Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, merely tweeted, “Poor choice of words — apologies for offense. Point is […]

Sunday NY Times Educ. Section Cites ZOA Work Fighting Campus Anti-Semitism

What some see as a celebration of culture through food, others see as a political statement, and an offensive one at that. Just slip an Israeli flag on a toothpick.

ZOA Letter in Forward about ZOA’s Work
