Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is the oldest pro-Israel group in the United States. They are 501c non-profit organization fighting for the Jewish people and the country of Israel. National president Morton Klein is an important Jewish American leader presiding over the 30,000 member organization founded in 1897. Klein is a child of survivors of the Holocaust. The Wall Street Journal says of the group, "The ZOA is the most credible advocate for Israel on the American Jewish scene today."

Morton Klein was particularly offended by Obama’s comparison of the suffering of Palestinians with the Nazis’ murder of more than 6 million Jews during the [Holocaust]. Klein stated his belief that Obama’s Jewish support was eroding as a result of his recent Middle East activities.  The White House responded quickly by asking 14 top Jewish leaders to meet with the President on July 13, excluding Klein. "Only Jewish leaders known to be sympathetic to Obama were invited to the meeting." Reason given for non-invite "How do you expect us to invite you to a meeting with the President when you keep criticizing the President?”
