Z STREET has returned during this period of global anxiety. Our focus remains to help inform about the realities of Israel and its role in the greater Middle East, as well as the world’s response to Jews and the Jewish State. So much misinformation out there, so much truth that needs to be shared.
Please check out the It’s Worth Your Attention page of this website to see issues we think are worth your consideration, and what you may not find elsewhere. Let us know your thoughts.
06.14.20 The U.S. appears to be slowly unraveling. Perhaps this won’t be the last straw, but the views dividing Americans are becoming increasing insurmountable. The death of a black man, George Floyd, at the hands (actually knee) of a Minneapolis police officer has brought massive protests, some of which turned into wanton destruction and looting of businesses in cities across the country. Predictably, some of the worst elements fanning the flames of destruction are inserting hatred of Jews and the Jewish State into the mix. For a perfect, horrible example, read here.
05.21.20 The next big issue over which Israel is being attacked in the international community is the extension of sovereignty in some areas of the disputed territories. Those who are unfamiliar with the details are harming the cause by parroting the antagonists’ name game of misnaming the effort “annexation.” A nation cannot annex territory to which it has the legitimate claim, as Israel does over the territory. The proper shorthand is sovereignty, but the best nomenclature is “extension of Israeli law” to the territories in question. See a terrific piece by Victor Rosenthal in our It’s Worth Your Attention page.
The 05.20.20 issue has to do with the abject failure of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

It happened! The seven+ year odyssey with the IRS has concluded with a real victory through the legal system. The joint Consent Decree, laying out the relevant facts, is posted on this site, and soon we’ll bring you up-to-date on what’s been happening lo these many years.
And more importantly, we can again focus on what’s happening out there on the planet, especially regarding Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish people.
