  • WJC President Lauder in aftermath of Pittsburgh attack: We must work together to ensure that our Jewish communities are secure and protected

WJC, NEW YORK - In the aftermath of the deadly shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder is sounding the alarm on the very real threats facing Jewish communities worldwide and urging government authorities to ramp up security efforts to prevent such an attack from happening again.

“The horrific act of terror that took place on Saturday at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue in Pittsburgh has left all Jewish communities, both in the US and abroad, in a state of absolute shock. We have long warned about the sharp rise in antisemitism, on both the far-right and the far-left and have prayed that the many incidences that we have witnessed of late, of vandalism and desecration of property, would never end in loss of life.
“This Shabbat, our worst nightmares came true. Innocent people were killed and wounded for the simple crime of being Jewish. This was an attack specifically targeting the Jewish community, in a deliberate and callous manifestation of antisemitism and hatred, and it should serve as a wake-up call to all Americans that such horror can and has happened here. We must be vigilant in making sure that this never happens again.

THE CENTRAL BOARD OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN GREECE CONDEMNS THE VIOLENT ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACKS IN SWEDEN Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 December 2017 10:33

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the abhorrence of the Greek Jewry for the recent attacks in Sweden against the Jewish Synagogue in Gothenburg and against the Jewish cemetery in Malmo.

Any attack against religious sites - wherever it may occur - is unacceptable and must be condemned by the world community. Condemning anti-Semitism goes with taking all the necessary measures that every well-governed country has to take in order to ensure the secure living of its citizens.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its solidarity with the Jewish Community of Sweden and stresses that Europe's Jews cannot be the target of any feasibility from wherever it may come.

The Authorities will need to be vigilant and defend the well-being of all citizens, regardless of their religion, against the followers of fanaticism and intolerance that seek to impose obscurantism in Europe.

AT WJC RECEPTION, GREEK FM KOTZIAS DECRIES 'HYPOCRISY AND DOUBLE-SPEAK' OF CRITICISM OF ISRAEL Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 September 2017 11:09

NEW YORK - Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias on Tuesday strongly decried moves to delegitimize the State of Israel and called comparison of Israel to Nazism as “an ex post attempt to acquit those who committed the crime of the Holocaust”.  Kotzias was speaking at a reception in his honor hosted by World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. 

 

In a warm welcome of Kotzias, Lauder thanked the minister for his strong support of Israel and personal fight against anti-Semitism in Greece. “Minister Kotzias represents the amazing changes in the improved relations between Israel and Greece over the past two years,” Lauder said.

“As a member of UNESCO’s Executive Board, Greece voted against that outrageous decision that denied any Jewish connection to Jerusalem. That’s like saying the Acropolis isn’t Greek,” Lauder added. “The Greek government has strongly opposed calls for Israel’s destruction, the denial of the Holocaust and all forms of anti-Semitism.  In Greece, Foreign Minister Kotzias has personally fought against the Golden Dawn Party and its anti-Semitic views. He has been a champion of the Greek Jewish community.”

Kotzias spoke strongly against the “hypocrisy and double speak” of Western criticism of Israel. “Each of us needs to respond to a fundamental question: do the Jews have a right to live in a secure, democratic state? The answer is simple, and one word: Yes, they do,” Kotzias said. “Moreover, the rest of us have the obligation to defend this right.”
