ZOA Regains Tax-Exempt Status After Yearlong Hiatus


ABOUT THE ZOA

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is the oldest and perhaps the largest solidly pro-Israel organization in the United States and is a charter member of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
The ZOA was founded in 1897 with the primary goal of supporting the re-establishment of the Jewish State in the land which has been the continuous homeland of Jews over millennia. The ZOA’s support was crucial in mobilizing the backing of the U.S. Government and the American People fro the recognition of Israel in 1948 and continues in its unwavering support of the Jewish State of Israel.

The Zionist Organization of America has regained its tax exemption more than a year after its failure to file financial disclosures led the Internal Revenue Service to revoke its nonprofit status.
The 116-year-old Jewish group’s tax exemption was reinstated on May 15, according to a statement from the ZOA.
“We’re delighted and gratified,” said ZOA National President Morton Klein in an interview with the Forward. “Now we can be raising money directly for ZOA.”
Donations intended for the ZOA given between February 2012 and May 2013 went to a donor advised fund maintained by an outside organization.
The ZOA, which occupies a decidedly hawkish slot on the pro-Israel Jewish spectrum, faced deep internal strife following the loss of its tax exemption in February 2012. ZOA National Vice Chairman Steven Goldberg emerged as a strident critic of the organization’s professional leadership, criticizing Klein for what Goldberg alleged was an effort to keep the loss of the tax exemption from the public. >>>more<<<

“Most churches in America have organized as ‘501c3 tax-exempt religious organizations.’  This is a fairly recent trend that has only been going on for about fifty years.  Churches were only added to section 501c3 of the tax code in 1954.  We can thank Senator Lyndon B. Johnson for that.  Johnson was no ally of the church.  As part of his political agenda, Johnson had it in mind to silence the church and eliminate the significant influence the church had always had on shaping ‘public policy.’
“Although Johnson proffered this as a ‘favor’ to churches, the favor also came with strings attached (more like shackles).  One need not look far to see the devastating effects 501c3 acceptance has had to the church, and the consequent restrictions placed upon any 501c3 church.  501c3 churches are prohibited from addressing, in any tangible way, the vital issues of the day.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
