ZOA targets companies for divestment

The Zionist Organization of America has thrown its support behind a Web site urging divestment from some 400 public companies that do business with governments that support terrorism. The site,, also names a so-called “dirty dozen” that it calls the worst offenders, which includes Korean carmaker Hyundai and German technology giant Siemens. “We urge our members and all concerned Americans to familiarize themselves with information available on’s site and to ensure that their investments and funds are not invested with companies that trade with terrorist sponsors and to withdraw their funds if they are,” ZOA Vice Chairman Michael Franzblau said. “If this approach is followed consistently by concerned citizens, it could have a dramatic impact on the pockets of terrorist-sponsoring dictators.”
