Activists from the Zionist Organization of America lobbied legislators to take action against the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia and Iran. On June 28-29, the ZOA held 180 meetings with members of Congress or their senior staff members as part of an annual lobbying action. More than 200 activists pressed Congress to cut off funding to the Palestinian Authority, while urging action against Saudi Arabia for its support for terrorism and hatred of the West. They also called for action against Iran for allegedly seeking to develop nuclear weapons that can threaten the United States and Israel.
