The Greater Philadelphia District of the Zionist Organization of America led a large pro-Israel demonstration across from the Israeli Consulate in Center City on June 4, 2010.
About 300 people from all walks of life: Jews and gentiles, city dwellers and suburbanites, young, old and middle-aged attended the hour-long rally.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, Jewish Exponent, Associated Press, Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Channel 6 Action News covered our event. Thanks to PhillyIsrael.com and Z Street and ACT for helping to mobilize people for this rally.
ZOA sponsors a pro-Israel demonstration every Friday (except on Jewish holidays) from noon to 1 p.m. at 19th St. and John F. Kennedy Blvd., southwest corner. Please join us for all or part of the hour.

The Greater Philadelphia District of the Zionist Organization of America has produced a fact sheet that gets to the heart of the controversy surrounding Israel's response to the Gaza-bound flotilla. The fact sheet concisely deals with key questions:
Is there a humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip?
Who is Hamas?
Why do Egypt and Israel have a blockade against the Gaza Strip?
Was the goal of the flotilla to deliver aid or did it have another purpose, and what happened to the ships, passengers and cargo?

In response to continued biased and inaccurate reporting about Israel, the Middle East and the peace process, the Greater Philadelphia District of the Zionist Organization of America has published our new "Guidelines for Balanced Reporting on Israel."
The report offers 13 frequent examples of what the media gets wrong -- whether through bias or unintentionally -- and offers the corrective and accurate alternative.
In addition to helping to educate reporters and editors, it will help supporters of Israel respond to instances of bias, inaccuracies and media shortcuts. Please contact our office for a copy.
