Jewish groups gave a mixed reaction to the appointment of Ahmed Karia, the Palestinian Authority’s prime minister-designate. The Zionist Organization of America was highly critical of Karia, calling on President Bush to reject his appointment because of what the ZOA called Karia’s incitement against the Jewish state. Americans for Peace Now called on both the United States and Israel to give Karia a chance. No Palestinian prime minister “will be able to build an independent political base in favor of moderation without significant, tangible results to show the Palestinian people,” the group said in a statement.
