ZIONIST ORGANIZATION OF AMERICA NEWS RELEASE U.S. Senators Criticize Tamara Wittes, Biden Nominee’s Anti-Israel Bias ― Jewish Groups are Deafeningly Silent Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) National President Morton A. Klein and ZOA Director of Research & Special Projects Liz Berney, Esq. released the following statement: It was gratifying that U.S. Senators spoke out about the anti-Israel biases, positions and activities of President Biden’s nominee for Assistant Administrator of USAID for the Middle East Tamara Cofman Wittes and Biden’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Michael Ratney, at their Senate Foreign Relations Committee confirmation hearings last week. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) Todd Young (R-IN) and Rob Portman (R-OH) called out and quizzed Cofman Wittes on her tweet condemning the Abraham Accords as a “Naksa.” (“Naksa” is the Arabic for “setback”: Palestinian Arabs use this term to describe the Arabs’ failure to annihilate Israel in 1967.) Senator Cruz also aptly noted that Cofman Wittes’ nomination was "concerning" and evidence of the "profound anti-Israel bias of the Biden administration." Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) called out the illegal use of $465,000 of American taxpayer funds to oppose then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’ re-election, when Ratney served as U.S. Consul General in Jerusalem. (See also “New Biden Nominees Opposed Abraham Accords & Involved in Israeli Election Interference,” by Dmitry Shapiro, JNS, June 17, 2022.) But why are other mainstream Jewish organizations silent? Why have they not joined pro-Israel U.S. Senators and the ZOA in calling out anti-Israel biases and activities of one Biden appointee after another? Biden’s appointees have been so Israelophobic that ZOA assembled a “Biden Hostile-to-Israel Appointments Watch” webpage describing Biden appointees’ horrific records, such as Hady Amr’s statement that he was “inspired by the Palestinian Intifada” (the terror wars in which Arab terrorists murdered or maimed approximately 10,000 innocent Jewish men, women and children), and Reema Dodin’s encouragement of suicide bombings against Jews. ZOA urges every Jewish organization from American Jewish Committee and ADL to AIPAC and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations to the Orthodox, Reform and Conservative movements to end their deafening silence and join U.S. Senators and ZOA in criticizing Biden’s hostile-to-Israel nominees like Cofman Wittes and Hady Amr. The failure to do so will only result in more of these dangerous appointments. Jewish groups’ silence sends a message that they’re fine with these Israelophobic nominees.

Founded in 1897, ZOA played a key role in the Jewish State's re-establishment. Today, ZOA is the leading major American Jewish organization courageously defending Israel and the Jewish people; fighting against all forms of antisemitism, including anti-Jewish boycotts; and promoting the Jewish people's lawful right to live in and settle historic Jewish lands. ZOA exposes that a Palestinian state would endanger Israel's existence; presents the facts about the Arab/Islamic war against Israel; and combats the anti-Israel lie that Israel is an "occupier" of her own land. ZOA spearheaded long battles to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and apply civil rights protections to Jewish students. ZOA provides free legal assistance and programs to pro-Israel students at numerous college campuses. ZOA's bold, unapologetic voice has a significant impact on public discourse and policy.
