ZOA Opposes World Jewish Congress Honoring Germany’s Merkel
It's not just Jews in the Detroit area, or in Michigan, or in large American metropolitan areas. It's Jews everywhere.
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) opposes the World Jewish Congress (WJC)’s decision to honor German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the Herzl Award. The ZOA firmly believes that a foreign leader who continues to support the disastrously flawed 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which will enable the Iranian regime in time to become a nuclear weapons state, is a singularly inappropriate recipient of the WJC’s most prestigious award.
The announcement of the award has produced strong criticism and upset in Germany’s Jewish community which, in addition to decrying Chancellor Merkel’s support for the Iran nuclear deal, is also deeply critical of her support for mass Muslim immigration to Germany and Europe in view of the vicious anti-Semitism that is rampant among the new immigrants.
No other Jewish organization has had anything to say about this. It took a psycho trying to shoot his way into a German synagogue on Yom Kippur to force German authorities to admit that yes, some attacks against Jews are anti-Semitic.
“Which policy she has pursued does the WJC believe distinguishes Chancellor Merkel as a worthy recipient of this Award? Her refusal to close down the operations in Germany of the vicious blood-soaked terrorist group Hezbollah? Her opposition to recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Her stubborn support for the Iran nuclear deal that is opposed on bipartisan basis in Israel? Her unabashed claim that Iran is not anti-Semitic, despite its repeated calls for the Jewish State’s destruction.
Maybe they gave it to Merkel because Louis Farrakhan was busy? And maybe the ADL is too busy to comment as they look for new white supremacist hand gestures and numbers.
