With at least 15 falsehoods succinctly articulated in a letter below on behalf of the Zionist Organization of America, former President Obama knew or should have known, millions of his readers will be horribly misled into drawing false & negative conclusions about Israel and the Jewish people.
Dear Mr. Dohle and Ms. McIntosh:
We write on behalf of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest and one of the largest pro-Israel organizations in the U.S. The ZOA is a leader in fighting against antisemitism and anti-Israel bias wherever these problems arise.
Having received complaints from our supporters and conducting our own review, we are deeply concerned about the factual inaccuracies, material omissions and outright falsehoods contained in one of your recent publications – “A Promised Land” by former U.S. Continue Reading »
Although the author of the Carter-era State Department legal opinion himself admitted the opinion was “controversial” and many distinguished legal experts were adamant that Israel’s settlements are indeed legal, it was accepted in 1977, giving a distinct unfair advantage to the Arab side ever since.

With Trump’s Deal of the Century in the offing, an anti-Israel legal opinion in the State Department has surfaced, which outlaws all Israeli communities over the Green Line. CUFI, which speaks for 4 million Christians, as well as the RCA and ZOA, are urging the Administration to rescind the controversial document. The fear is that Israel will be in a disadvantageous position if the “Deal of the Century” is published and an official pro-Arab legal opinion, negating all settlements, remains intact.

The ‘Palestinian Exception’, practiced by the previous three US Presidents, involved allowing the PLO, PA and their supporters a ‘free-pass’ for behavior that would have otherwise been acknowledged as illegal, but ignored simply because the perpetrators were Palestinians or activists in their stead.

When Rosh Hashanah ended on Tuesday evening, Jews discovered that over the holiday, the Trump administration had enacted two policies – one foreign and one domestic – that on their face, don’t appear to be connected. But actually, they stem from the same rationale. And both together and separately, these two policies give Jews much to be thankful for. Continue Reading »
Vacating a 2014 decision by the Obama administration, the U.S. Education Department decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism that recognizes how Jew-hatred can be camouflaged as anti-Zionism or anti-Israel bias.
By Israel Hayom Staff
The U.S. Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights has decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism, which defines Judaism not only as a religion but also an ethnicity and includes holding Jews responsible for Israel’s actions as a form of anti-Semitism, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.
According to a letter written by Assistant Education Secretary for Civil Rights Kenneth L. Marcus to the Zionist Organization of America, anyone who acts “to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, on the grounds that the State of Israel’s existence is a racist endeavor” or applies double standards to Israel that it does not apply to any other democratic country will be deemed an anti-Semite.

Watch Ambassador David Friedman’s speech at the ZOA annual event in NYC, where he calls the Obama administration the ‘dark days’ for Israel, with their ultimate betrayal of Israel at the UNSC, but says President Trump ‘treats Israel like an ally’ and ‘moving the US embassy to Jerusalem is a matter of when, not if.’
– Watch Steve Bannon: ‘Trump is Israel’s best friend since Ronald Reagan.’
By Hezki Baruch

President Obama could have said ‘West Bank’, but calling Judea & Samaria “Palestinian lands,” in his UNGA address “prejudges the issue of sovereignty & borders and is not accordance with int’l law” or in accordance with the Oslo Accords, to whom the United States is a signatory.
By Yoel Domb,
Despite Barak Obama’s speech last week at the UN being endlessly analyzed, there has been no meaningful reference to the way in which the president referred to Judea and Samaria. The president remarked parenthetically that Judea and Samaria are “Palestinian lands”. Only the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has responded and protested the inaccuracy in Obama’s words.

• WATCH: Benjamin Netanyahu’s complete United Nations Address
By Hillel Fendel
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s powerful speech in the United Nations last week was largely upstaged by the murderous Palestinian terrorist attack wave that began less than two hours later.
However, two announcements by the Zionist Organization of America have returned the speech – during which he glared at the General Assembly delegates from around the world for 45 seconds of dramatic silence – to the news. Continue Reading »
Europe apparently forgot the lessons of the Holocaust. ZOA President Morton Klein explains in special interview with Arutz Sheva why EU striking Hamas from blacklist means ‘Europe doesn’t care about killing Jews.’
By Tova Dvorin
The European Union’s (EU) removal of Hamas from its terror blacklist sets a precedent for allowing anti-Semitism in Europe to run rampant, Morton Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), stated Wednesday.

“This both encourages and legitimizes Islamic terrorism and Islamic murder against Jews and others, and it sends a message to Islamic killers that Europe doesn’t care about what they do to Jews,” Klein stated in a special interview with Arutz Sheva.
