Zionist Organization of America Honors Glenn Beck

Glenn-beck-fox-newsThe Zionist Organization of America, a hard right organization that has far more in common with Rabbi Meir Kahane than it does with Theodore Herzl or David Ben Gurion, is honoring disgraced discredited talk show host Glenn Beck. Beck was fired from Fox News after organizations as varied as the Anti Defamation League (ADL) and Media Matters, along with hundreds of rabbis  and tens of thousands of Fox viewers, complained about Beck's lies, his insane rants, and his false claim that as a 14 year old boy, left wing financier George Soros was a Nazi collaborator.

It appears that Morton Klein and his cadre of neo-fascists have reached a new low:

About The Zionist Organization of America: 

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is the oldest and one of the largest pro-Israel organizations in the United States. With offices around the country and in Israel, the ZOA educates the public, elected officials, the media, and college/high school students about the facts of the Arab-Israel conflict. The ZOA works to strengthen U.S.-Israel relations through educational activities, public affairs and lobbying.  Under the leadership of Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, Rabbis Abba Hillel Silver and Stephen Wise, and currently President Morton A. Klein, the ZOA has been – and continues to be – on the front lines of Jewish activism. The ZOA is a 501(c) (3) non-partisan organization.  www.zoa.org

Before some of the crazier people here say Soros was a collaborator, here's what really happened:

…Shortly after George went to live with Baumbach, the man was assigned to take inventory on the vast estate of Mor Kornfeld, an extremely wealthy aristocrat of Jewish origin. The Kornfeld family had the wealth, wisdom, and connections to be able to leave some of its belongings behind in exchange for permission to make their way to Lisbon. Baumbach was ordered to go to the Kornfeld estate and inventory the artworks, furnishings, and other property. Rather than leave his "godson" behind in Budapest for three days, he took the boy with him. As Baumbach itemized the material, George walked around the grounds and spent time with Kornfeld's staff. It was his first visit to such a mansion, and the first time he rode a horse. He collaborated with no one and he paid attention to what he understood to be his primary responsibility: making sure that no one doubted that he was Sandor Kiss. Among his practical concerns was to make sure that no one saw him pee.…

Yet Beck insisted Soros was a Nazi collaborator, claiming Soros worked with his non-Jewish protector to take property left behind by Hungarian Jews deported to Auschwitz.

And then Beck refused to retract or apologize.

The ADL found Beck's behavior to be reprehensible, as did most Holocaust scholars.

But not the ZOA's Morton Klein and the hardliners that make up his board.

For them, smearing a man who supports Peace Now is a mitzvah. Need to lie to discredit George Soros? Then lie! Need to obscenely use the Holocaust to discredit him? Do it!

Because Morton Klein and his followers are fundamentalist ideologues, and their ends always justify the means they use to try to achieve them.

Jews should be aghast, and they should demand the ZOA rescind Beck's pending honor. Some will do this.

But the Centrist Orthodox and haredi supporters of the ZOA will with near unanimity applaud the ZOA for honoring Beck, because Beck is a supporter of right wing Israeli politicians, West Bank settlers, and right wing Israelis, and he defends their version of the State of Israel as he smears the left wing and centrist Israelis who view Israel as a secular democratic state based on humane and humanist values.

And that's because for them, for Morton Klein, the ends justify the means – no matter how despicable those means might be.

happy and proud to support Morton Klein in his unwavering support of Israel and Glenn Beck for his courage to stand up for the truth when it comes to Israel!

Soros may not be a nazi collaborator, but he's still a "self-hating" P.O.S.

I don’t give a rats ass about Glen Beck, that being said, it really is too bad that Soros wasn't added to the list of statistics during WWII. Munch on that you progressive loonies

George Soros. the man who tried to bring democracy to Eastern Europe and yet is blamed by Glenn Dreck and his lunatic groupies for every calamity in the world.

just proves how disgusting Zionists can be.

Heh! Apparently, "Soros" is a trigger word for these people, like "Liberal".

If you people above (except for SkepticalYid), along with WrongJew, Max and Guest, are representative of the Jews who'll be in heaven - I'm glad I'm going to hell.

Unlike Soros Y"S, Shmarya, and the leftist groupies on this site, Mort Klein is a true Jewish patriot who refuses to commit suicide in a phony "peace" process while just to win the approval of the non-Jewish Stalinist Left hordes.

Is FM relying on Media Matters to condemn Glen Beck?

"Soros and his Open Society Institute has poured millions of dollars into the coffers of MoveOn, the Center for American Progress, and Democracy Alliance. In turn, these organizations have funneled some of that money to Media Matters."

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=7150

George Soros - a traitor and scoundrel whose hard left activism has caused enormous harm to the Jewish people and to America.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=977

I never said liberal, i said progressive. I'm a liberal, Soros is a progressive doosh.

Plz lets look at whats the deal today Soros founder of organization that want to destroy Israel and America, Beck proud supporter of Israel that's enough for me so what if he has said some crazy comments in the past,we don't live in a perfect world and when a non Jew is willing to put himself on the line to protect Yerushalyim then he's a good guy in my book.

Soros will soon have noone to say Kaddish over his rotting corpse - a fact that most assuredly bothers him not even a little. A self-hating Rasha of the first magnitude, but he's certainly generous with his $.

just proves how disgusting Zionists can be.

no just the right

and please go to vin and other frum web sites beck is a god

Anyone planning to be in NY City on 11/17/11?

Soros funded OWS hordes planning to cause massive mayhem in the city:

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=367889

"Soros" is a boogeyman for the conservatives...they invoke his name whenever they imagine how the Koch brothers would behave if they were liberals.

RW nut jobs making Soros out to be a bogeyman. Media Matters? Big f-ing deal. They debunk RW propaganda. Just compare their statements to the non-partisan site Poltifact and you'll see they're right on the money.

OWS Hordes?? Gimme a break. Massive mayhem? You actually believe the crap Farah writes?

No wonder there's no reasoning with you.

ZOA has Hareidi support?
I wonder how many Hareidim under the age of forty even know what ZOA is!
And how varied are the ADL and Media Matters they are both avowedly liberal as are the liberal Reform Rabbis who condemned him.
LAst I checked when he went to Isreal the Knesset greeted him as a rock star.
Oh and SHmaya aint it cute how you hate the "extreme Hariedim" for "mooching on society. Yet you seem to be an "extreme progressive"?

Funny how Right Wing ditto heads get so enraged when a website critiques and debunks the propaganda their gurus like Dreck and Lush Rimjob spew everyday. If you have issue with anything Media Matters published, contest it with verifiable facts.

when a non Jew is willing to put himself on the line to protect Yerushalyim then he's a good guy in my book.

AMEN

Soros, bringing democracy to Eastern Europe? If this is so, why the democratic Eastern Europeans kicked him out?

Old George Soros, the guy who broke the bank of England, does not strike me as a good fellow.

Between Glenn and George, I'd feel safer with Glenn. With George, one need to keep one eye open at all times.

Soros later described this time to writer Michael Lewis:
The Jewish Council asked the little kids to hand out the deportation notices. I was told to go to the Jewish Council. And there I was given these small slips of paper...It said report to the rabbi seminary at 9 am...And I was given this list of names. I took this piece of paper to my father. He instantly recognized it. This was a list of Hungarian Jewish lawyers. He said, "You deliver the slips of paper and tell the people that if they report they will be deported."[17]

Wikipedia on George Soros

it's not a wonder,that Shmaryah,a self hating piece of human garbage would stick up for another self hating swine george soros yemach shemom

Soros is a traitor to God. An actual traitor, not just a lost or twisted soul. An enemy of God. Yes he is. If you can't see it, you're a binary-thinking sheep. Sorry.

Beck is a Christian Zionist, they help us now because they're expecting us to bow to their yashke before they're harvested. We won't bow to their yashke, we will shove their idol straight up their ass, and THEN they'll fight us again in the name of Peter the roman. So, this Beck-love is self serving and disingenuous.

Beck is just an opportunist. he works for the jewish religious wackos to attack the jewish moderates and liberals. this has been obvious since his leaving FOX, and it was obvious the radicals adored him even before his little misstep.

nothing about him speaks "christian" to me. he was perfectly happy to rake idiots over the coals with gold coins sold with outrageously inflated numismatic vs real value. nothing but a scammer, imo. oh, and a froot loop. is he bipolar or what?

Neither Soros nor Beck are good for the Jews, in my book. Some may cheer Beck for supporting Israel. But the last thing we want is for support for Israel to switch from being a mainstream political position to one associated with Beck and his camp (or the religious right in general). As one columnist put it, "this match wasn't made in heaven".

Maybe Beck will cry.

Are they going to let him sell books and gold in the lobby?

Actually most right-wing christian fundamentalists scorn Mr. Beck for being Mormon, just as they show extreme disdain for Mr. Romney.

Regardless of how he spends his money (unwisely in my eyes), Mr. Soros has earned it largely in a reprehensible manner, manipulating currencies to the point of enriching himself, while causing a great deal of pain to the 99% (though, curiously, I never hear him discussed as a target of the occupy movement's ire)

Is he being given the Louis Brandeis award, or the Sheldon Adelson award?

Either way, it makes me sick.

Brandeis, Stephen Wise, AH Silver rolling in their graves

Let's not forget that Soros almost destroyed the entire south eastern asia currency not so long ago. However after he nearly collapsed their countries they figured out how to keep currency speculators away from their money.

Beck is not as much of a loon as people make him out to be. Nor is he that positive either.
All of you suffer from reading opinion pieces.

None of you research much of anything except other people who spot their political opinions.

The trouble is defining the world as left or right. Liberal or conservative rather and as thinking who is this person and what does he really have to say about X or Y?

Ergo you spew. The sum of this is that your think you are writing down opinion pieces on or about your life when in truth what we all have to write is nothing more than endless pages typed with to our surprise in invisible ink.

Not surprised to see hareidim sticking up for mormons, they're kindred spirits. Bizarre backward superstitions masquerading as theology, institutional child rape and spousal abuse, women as second class citizens and breeding machines, dress codes that purport to be about modesty but scream "LOOK AT ME!"

Cut from the same cloth, and destined for the same fate.

I know Mort Klein. Most professionals in Jewish community life find his ignorance to be an embarrassment. He is bankrolled by wealthy conservative donors so it is no surprise he would honor Glen Beck. But his made-up Zionist history is astonishingly void of such things as facts.
He takes home an enormous salary himself, and has made salary promises to staff which he did not fulfill. He has been sued by former staff members more than once.
In short he is one of the more disreputable figures in American Jewish public life.

Shouldn't "Zionist Organization of America" be an oxymoron (instead of just a plain moron)? After all if you are a Zionist you shouldn't be in America.

Hence the Neturei Karta of Yerushalayim are better Zionists than Morton klein.

Glenn Beck's track record in support of Israel, Conservative/Orthodox Judaism and American patriotism should not be in question. There's never been a radio/television broadcaster who's been more outspoken on any of these subjects. By the way, this weekend, Glenn is headlining David Horowitz's Restoration Weekend at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach. It's a three (3) day program that will reinforce support for Israel, among other issues. There are at least 250 other popular conservative thinkers who'll be presenting, too. Among those guests, Dick Morris, Bernie Goldberg, Mark Steyn, etc.
Just for the record, Beck's daily radio show attracts some 7-10 million weekly listeners. His Glenn Beck TV network is taking in about $2,300,000 a month, as of August 2011. And, it's important for Glenn's naysayers to investigate how many times Glenn has had dinner with the ADL's Abe Foxman. I also have personal commentary (e-mail) from an independent Orthodox Jewish U.S. Senator regarding Glenn's unyielding support for the state of Israel. Needless to say, that e-mail was noteworthy for his praise of Glenn's staunch support of the Jewish state!

To Neils60

And Mussolini made the trains run on time. That doesn't mean he was a great scheduler, train engineer, philosopher or supporter of Israel.
All types of people say they are our friend. Even Stalin voted for the creation of the State of Israel.
Choose your friends wisely. Glen Beck may love us today, but what about tomorrow. Remember even Luther once loved the Jews.
To paraphrase John Wilkes: we could end up in a mess if we embrace either Beck's politics or his mistress. In either case the outcome is not pretty.

What a vile collection of talkbackers here. I guess they think it's OK to be an antisemite or hate-filled and evil piece of dirt who wishes death on a another Jew, as long as you support the Extreme Right in Israel.

Utterly disgraceful. These people bring shame on themselves, and on all of us. They bring only evil to this world and will be dealt with in the Olom Haboh.

If George Soros were pro-Israel, he would also be honored at a ZOA dinner. The choice is his.

G-d Bless Morton Klein, Glen Beck and the ZOA! I have been following this website and I am increasingly horrified at the tone of this blog. This Shemarya guy reminds me of the Kamtza Bar Kamtza guy from years ago. Perhaps he was mistreated by somebody in the Orthodox community that has made him go on a rampage against Orthodox Judiasm.

May this be a lesson learned to all of us out there in the Jewish community to treat people with kindness, respect and decency, cause if not it may come back to haunt you. Look at the damage that can happen.

Don't get me wrong. I am a modern orthodox/traditional woman who thinks it is important to go after sexual predators in the community, but there is a sinister and bitter dark side to this blog that is out to virtually attack and blame Orthodox Jews and Israel for everything. How sad, at a time when anti-semitism is increasing now more than ever, and Israel finds herself alone surrounded by those that wish to finish Hitler's job, we now have this blog to "educate" the world about those JEEEEEWS! Shemarya, words can cause terrible damage, be careful, get a good therapist and try to let some of that toxicity out of your system!

you are mixing up two different things

One can support Israel love Israel and be against the hard right Zionist

"Hence the Neturei Karta of Yerushalayim are better Zionists than Morton klein.

Just because you're operating behind "enemy lines" doesn't mean you're on their side. NK are a Fifth Column.

Rebecca,

Yashar Koach for your words of wisdom above.

This blog spews out a non-stop torrent of some of the most venomous anti-semitism that can be found anywhere on the 'Net.

The comments section on this site regularly characterizes Chareidi Jews as cancers, animals, scum, filth, enemies, terrorists, etc., while defending every evil liberal/leftist cause under the sun. Some commenters even express hope for the liquidation of all Chareidim.

Goyish Nazis, after seeing this website, must be drooling with jealousy due to the inadequacy of their own websites.

Posted by: RightJew | November 16, 2011 at 09:51 PM

Please.

Your comments often read as if they were written by the KKK or Neo Nazis, except the target of your hatred is any Jew or non-Jew who doesn't agree with your racist fascist agenda.

Some people do cross the line in how they categorize haredim.

But no one reaches your constant level of racism and hatred.

Translation: I'm being made to see things I don't want to see.

Isralis already regard the majority of American Jews as disloyal and sometimes outright dangerous. Slanders against Israel and supporters place you in the company of terrorists and terrorist supporters, and should earn you a long interrogation followed by denial of entry into Israel.

Reminds me of the time in 1970 when the ZOA (then with not such a right-wing reputation), a few month after Attica, gave their "man of the year" award to Nelson Rockefeller. Four of us from the Jewish Liberation Project showed up to protest.

The apostate Shmaya Rosenberg strikes again!
