Written Testimony of ZOA President Morton Klein House Judiciary Committee April 9 2019 (PDF).

Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest pro-Israel group in the U.S., founded in 1897

At an April 9, 2019 Congressional hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism chaired by Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) eloquently illustrated how Jews the world over face a major threat which both American and Jewish leadership have not truly addressed: Islamic anti-Semitism.

While anti-Jewish bigotry from some beyond traditional neo-Nazi sources has occasionally been addressed in the media, the anti-Semitic opinions and actions of Muslims receive almost no attention. This stands in stark and disturbing contrast to the facts, such as, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), 49% of Muslims interviewed in 100 countries exhibited anti-Jewish hatred, including 34% of American Muslims.

Governmental and Jewish community leaders will not be truly serving their duty to protect American Jews until this painful fact is addressed honestly.
