ZOA Morton Klein Letter in New York Times About Iran

    Letters December 30, 2009   To the Editor: Alan J. Kuperman is correct to argue that airstrikes have become the only plausible avenue to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. It is widely appreciated that a nuclear-armed Iranian regime poses an existential threat to Israel, but it is also a huge risk for […]

U.S. Must Make Certain Iran Doesn’t Get Bomb

  U.S. Must Make Certain Iran Doesn’t Get Bomb Your editorial in the paper of Nov. 25, titled “Time to Enforce Deadline,” rightly describes the danger posed to Israel by the looming Iranian nuclear threat and the need for the United States to take action. One important addition to your argument would be the often […]

Time to Put the Squeeze on Palestinian Aid

  At the 1993 Oslo signing ceremony in Washington, President Bill Clinton called the Oslo accords a “brave gamble.” Actually, Oslo turned out to be a tragic gamble that cost Israel almost 2,000 lives, with thousands more maimed. The reason: a concessionary policy that ignored continuing Palestinian rejection of Israel‘s existence as a Jewish state […]

Jewish Groups Ask Supreme Court to Reject ‘Lawfare’

A risk we can’t afford

    Sir, – In your editorial, you spoke correctly of the “risks” of “further kidnappings and killings” that arise if Israel frees hundreds of terrorists to obtain the freedom of Gilad Schalit (“Schalit: The details matter,” December 3). The Israeli public must bear in mind that freed terrorists have already murdered large numbers of […]

ZOA letter in Kansas City Jewish Chronicle About Sen. Brownback and Jerusalem

    The editorial in the Nov. 13 Chronicle concerning Sen. Brownback was inappropriate and frankly, misguided. It would not have been surprising for an anti-Israel newspaper to criticize this pro-Israel action by one of the most pro-Israel senators, but for a Jewish newspaper to do so is shameful. Sen. Brownback’s S. 2737, to require the U.S. Embassy to be moved […]

Is Clinton Soft On Fatah Intransigence?

  At the 1993 Oslo signing ceremony in Washington, President Bill Clinton called the Oslo Accords a “brave gamble.” Actually, Oslo turned out to be a tragic gamble that cost Israel almost more than 1,900 dead and thousands more maimed. The reason: a concessionary policy that ignored continuing Palestinian rejection of Israel’s existence as a […]

Releasing Killers Endangers Israelis

     Last week, in return for a video – not the freedom of a kidnap victim, but a video of a kidnap victim – Israel freed 20 Palestinian prisoners. This has to stop.      At one time Israel would release terrorists – but not those with “blood on their hands” and only in […]

J Street should rescind its invitation to Al-Marayati

  Is J Street really a pro-Israel group? The lobbying organization never tires of claiming it is. Yet what pro-Israel group would invite a man to speak at its upcoming conference who’s called for Israel’s destruction, stating that “the establishment by force, violence and terrorism of a Jewish state in Palestine in 1948” was “a […]
