The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is expressing concern about the criticism leveled by two Jewish groups at opponents of a two-state solution.
In June, following comments opposing a two-state solution made by Israeli Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett and Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) called Bennett’s comments “unwelcome” and praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reprimand of Danon’s comments. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), meanwhile, said opposing a Palestinian state would “add fuel to the fire” of “anti-Israel delegitimization and boycott campaigns,” and would “have destructive effects internationally.”
The ZOA on June 26 “expressed concern and puzzlement” that AJC “condemns those who oppose creating a Palestinian state under prevailing conditions yet, at the same time, rarely condemns continuing PA incitement to hatred and murder against Jews and Israel in the PA-controlled media, mosques, schools and youth camps.”
