For a long time already, the Zionist Organization of America has placed itself outside the mainstream of true Zionists. However, they have now reached such a low point that they need to be placed beyond the pale – these people have no place in the true Zionist / Jewish Pantheon.
This past weekend, Mort Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America wrote in a post: “BlackLivesMatter is an antisemitic, Israel hating Soros funded racist extremist Israelophobic hate group.”
In another post, he stated that, “BLM is a Jew hating, White hating, Israel hating, conservative Black hating, violence promoting, dangerous Soros funded extremist group of haters.”
These are the ravings of a racist – and racism has no place in Zionism.
This man and the organization he represents have no place in true Jewish Zionist society, and need to be ostracized by any and all true Jews – no matter what their affiliation – religious, political or ethnic. They are a disgrace to our identities as Jews and as Zionists, and certainly as Israelis.
And as an addendum – it’s about time that the name of Z.O.A. House in Tel Aviv be changed to something more appropriate! These people have no place here!
