event, he said, "but when one is •
captured and helpless it immedi-
ately brings up the image of the
Holocaust, where Jews did not
have the opportunity to fight or
resist:' he said.
Furthermore, the drama of a
kidnapping creates a wide audi-

country where "we are very few

MORTON A. KLEIN is widely regarded as one of the leading

Jewish activists in the United States. The son of Holocaust survivors, he
has successfully crusaded against anti-Israel bias in major textbooks,
travel guides, universities, churches and the media. A brilliant writer,
and eloquent speaker, Morton Klein has written and delivered hundreds
of articles and lectures around the globe. Recognizing his dynamic
leadership and effectiveness, the New York Jewish Week declared him
as "one of the top Jewish leaders who have made a difference." The
Jerusalem Post has called the ZOA under his leadership, "one of the
most important and influential Jewish groups in the U.S. today."
