From Naomi Ragen: Our ardent Zionist friend, Lori Lowenthal Marcus, President of Philadelphia's ZOA, has been instrumental in
starting a new organization to combat the pernicious influence of the far Left anti-Israel 'J Street.'. Her group is called 'Z (for
Zionist) Street.' Expect the full barrage of Counter attack from the enemies of Zion. Let us organize and say we did what we could
when others buried their heads in the sand. Background and positions of the organization:
Z street -- By Lori Lowenthal Marcus
There is a chilling scene in the 2002 movie "The Pianist." In it the train was already chugging along on the path to insanity and
destruction, but before all was destroyed. The family of the protagonist has been moved into the Warsaw Ghetto and the head of the
family is sitting at a table, reading a newspaper. He looks up and says, "I blame the American Jews."
He was talking to me. (...) I resolved then not to be our time's analog of a World War II American Jew -- you know, the ones who
read the newspapers, see what is happening to Israel, mutter "tsk, tsk" and turn the page. (...)
Z STREET is based on these ironclad positions:
The right of the Jewish people to a state, and the right of Jews to live freely anywhere, including inhaling oxygen in areas the
world insists are reserved for Arab Palestinians; (...) Categorical rejection of agreements with, or concessions to, terrorists (or
their supporters) who are dedicated to Israel's destruction.
Unlike other organizations that claim to be pro-Israel, Z STREET will not pander to politicians who invite us to their offices and
pay attention to our pocketbooks but ignore our positions. (...)
A fuel source previously untapped has been released: within days of the launch thousands clamored to our site, asking how to join
and how they can help. Z STREET already includes members from five continents and more than twenty states.News articles are being
written about Z STREET from the far right and the center, and we have been viciously denigrated and cartooned from the far left -
all of which is gratifying.(...)
A very few World War II Jews acted as catalysts for those who refused to be cowed. (...). This band of warriors, led by Peter
Bergson and Ben Hecht, staged marches, rallies and theater events. They refused to mimic the Jewish leaders who shrank from their
moral duty to demand the US government face the irrefutable facts of the plans, and then the execution of those plans, to murder
millions. It would be an honor for Z STREET to be compared to the Bergson Group.
I sleep better knowing that when my grandchildren ask me what I did to help prevent the destruction of Israel, I can tell them about
Z STREET with a clear conscience and a sense of pride. What will you say?
