(The Wall Street Journal)  Pro-Israel nonprofit Z Street filed a lawsuit against the IRS regarding free speech rights.  The lawsuit is based on a claim that an agent from the IRS informed Z Street that it could lose its tax-exempt status because its opinions on Israel conflict with the Obama Administration.  Z Street president Lori Lowenthal Marcus said in a statement, “This situation is the same as if the government denied a driver’s license to people because they were Republicans or Democrats. It goes against everything for which our country stands.”
