ZOA Dismayed Major Jewish Organizations Have Not Condemned New Fatah/Hamas Terrorist Alliance


ZOA Dismayed Major Jewish Organizations Have Not Condemned New Fatah/Hamas Terrorist Alliance

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has expressed dismay and chagrin
that major American Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League,
the American Jewish Committee, AIPAC, Bnai Brith, the Orthodox Union and
others have not issued statements condemning the Fatah/Hamas unity
government agreement reached in Doha in recent days between Palestinian
Authority (PA) president Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas political bureau chief
Khaled Meshaal. Hamas calls in its Charter for the destruction of Israel
(Article 15) and the murder of Jews (Article 7), and has launched over
10,000 missiles on Israeli civilians.



ZOA President Morton A. Klein said, “We are very concerned to see that other
American Jewish organizations have not issued statements condemning the
Fatah/Hamas unity deal, a vicious alliance that clearly indicates that Abbas
and the Fatah/PA have no qualms at uniting in government with a genocidal
terrorist organization.



“At a minimum, these organizations should be condemning this development,
which demonstrates starkly the falsity of the Fatah /PA as a peace partner
for Israel and conspicuously exposes the true face of the PA’s goals and
ideology, which has always been – whether under Arafat or Abbas – to destroy
Israel and murder its Jewish population.



“Jews are never again to be the Jews of silence. Our painful history
teaches us that.



“Jewish organizations should be condemning this development and asking how
the PA can profess to seek peace with Israel when it merges with an entity
that openly proclaims its goal of destroying Israel and its people. We
respectfully urge them to do so without delay.”
