The Zionist Organization of America opened a Jerusalem office. The office, whose opening will be officially announced at a news conference in Jerusalem later this month, is headed by Jeffrey Daube, a former special needs educator with extensive experience in Israel issues in Washington.
Daube has been associated with several pro-Israel groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee; NORPAC, a pro-Israel political action committee; and Palestinian Media Watch. “We look forward to giving a stronger voice to a majority of Israelis who are opposed to supporting consideration of any Israeli concessions before there is full Palestinian Arab compliance to their Oslo/Hebron/Wye/RoadMap obligations to end terror, arrest terrorists, confiscate illegal weapons, and end incitement,” ZOA President Morton Klein said in a statement. “We will also be fighting to take Jerusalem and the so-called Palestinian refugee issues off the table.”
