At a time when old-time Zionists have become more acquainted with anxiety than celebration, with Israel confronting floodwaters of excoriation and isolation internationally and on campus, and with thousands feeling connected to more than a dozen families saying Kaddish for terrorist murders, Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, sensed that the annual ZOA dinner had to provide not only a meal in a ballroom but a reason to believe.

Christian Zionists Praise Obama For Stance On PA Bid


 Christians United for Israel activists lavished President Obama with rare praise for pledging to veto any Palestinian attempt to secure statehood recognition at the United Nations.

"We appreciate that you and members of your administration have indicated that the U.S. will veto such a resolution in the Security Council and vote against such a resolution in the General Assembly," said the form email, sent by 33,000 CUFI activists to the White House since Thursday. "We're writing to urge you to follow through on these important commitments."
