to national board
Clifford Rieders has been elected to the National Board of the Zionist Organization of America. The Zionist Organization of America was founded in 1897, whose past presidents include the legendary United States Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis.
The Zionist Organization of America, according to a news release, works both for justice and democracy in the Middle East and strongly supports the right of Israel to exist. Rieders was instrumental in assisting the Zionist Organization of America in setting up its Center for Law and Justice, which has been a leader in seeking enforcement of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to safeguard against the plague of anti-Semitism. The Center for Law and Justice has brought some of the leading cases to support the rights of pro-Israel forces on college campuses to make their voices heard.
The Zionist Organization of America has been active politically and in the press in assuring that Israel's right to exist will not be undermined in the halls of Congress, in the press, or on college campuses. Majority leader Eric Cantor has said, "ZOA is the moral compass for all of us (in Congress) as far as relationships in the Middle East are concerned."
ZOA, the news release said, is fighting legally and politically to defeat extremist campaigns to undermine the existence of Israel by economic boycott and divestiture. The organization points out the hypocrisy of attacks on the only democracy the Middle East has ever known while those same forces do nothing about the slaughter in Syria, the Central African Republic, Sudan, and other locations around the world.
"I am honored to be part of this significant and highly respected organization fighting on behalf of Jewish interests and the State of Israel in its crucial relationship with the United States," Rieders said.
