  1. Congratulations
    Spent my early career representing clients before IRS and in the 70s and 80s they were not politicized like now. So i am glad you put your thumb in their eye, so to speak. The Obama administration tried to change the US into a monarchy, but it is such a great place they could not do it in eight years! You should have a donate button on the website. Would like to contribute. I support all democracies and Israel is a great one. Their settlement activity is probably over the edge, but suspect this would all be worked out in a overall agreement with Palestinians. The Palestinians should have taken the deal they were offered 20 years ago. An agreement today will be less favorable as negotiating position is seriously worse now.

  2. I find it very coincidental that on the day that the United States Congress is possibly going to release a memo that points out the misuse of power by the FBI and the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration. “Z Street wins a settlement with the Department of Justice that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) applied heightened scrutiny to applications for tax-exempt status received from organizations connected in any way to Israel, and applied this policy to Z Street’s application, resulting in delay.”

    It took Z Street and Ms. Lori Lowenthal Marcus close to 9 years to obtain the approval and vindication. As Ms. Lowenthal Marcus states “I founded Z Street in 2009 to educate Americans about the Middle East and Israel’s defense against terror. We applied for tax-exempt status under Section 501 (c)(3) of the tax code in December 2009- a process that usually takes three to six months.”
    This was one of many attempts of the Obama Administration to subvert the United States Constitution for it own position using what ever means possible in this case the IRS.

    Now the memo may provide additional supporting material indicating how the Obama Administration used other agencies during his administration to exact power and punishment on Americans using the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) to attack the lawful elected President of the United States, Mr. Trump in favor of Mrs Hillary Clinton and their Democratic Party which appears to be the best example of an oxymoron. Mr. Obama and his administration forgot a few things regarding his over reach of The United States Constitution.

    I want to thank Z Street and Ms. Lori Lowenthal Marcus for fighting the great fight and winning for Israel and the Jewish people. I want Z Street and Ms. Lori Lowenthal Marcus to remember these famous quotes from a couple of famous Jews that truly express who we are and above all what I believe Z Street and Ms. Lori Lowenthal Marcus are.

    Elie Wiesel once famously said “In Jewish History there are no coincidences ” and as King David said about Goliath “For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he insulted the battalions of the Living God?”

  3. I’m sending the Wall Street Journal op-ed to my fellow Jews in an email titled “Another Reason for Jews to Love Obama…”
    With no web presence, I can’t tell — but suspect that Z Street is another Jewish organization “to the right of Genghis Khan.” However, I respect their right to promote their views and am disgusted at the politicization of administrative processes by the Obama administration.

  4. Z Street got screwed, as did many Christian organizations under the Democrat Barak Obama’s presidency. My best wishes on your victory after these many years. I pray that Israel, Israeli supporters and American Christians can now express themselves without the unconstitutional application of US Laws or US Administrative “cowboys”.

  5. As an American follower of Yeshua and one who has become keenly aware of the Jewish roots of my faith and the importance of Israel in the plans and purposes of God, I am ready to make my first contribution to Z Street as I believe are thousands of others who love to support our Jewish friends.

  6. All of the land of Israel was given to Abraham and his descendants forerer by G-D and no one has the right or ability to change that / All of Israel including Judea and Samaria belong to the Jews
