MIDDLE EAST
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NEW BLOODSHED IN THE MIDDLE EAST Print E-mail
Monday, 03 August 2015 11:38
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the repudiation of the Greek Jewry and condemns the arson attack carried out by Israeli extremists against two houses of Palestinians, an attack that resulted into the tragic death of an innocent baby and the serious injury of the parents.
 
We are confident that following immediate condemnation of this terrorist act by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and in accordance to his orders the Israeli authorities will trace down and apprehend the terrorists and will bring them to justice.
Grief over the unjust loss of innocent lives is common for all people who stand against hatred and terror regardless of skin colour, ethnic origins or religion. During this period we all have the obligation –Jews, Christians and Muslims alike- to stand together and pray for the bloodshed to stop and for a just and lasting peace to be achieved in order to safeguard the peaceful coexistence of Israelis and Palestinians in two states for two people.

WHEN HATRED OUTWEIGHS RESOLVE Print E-mail

By  Victor Isaak Eliezer*

In the merciless war that Hamas is waging to obliterate Israel, two aims have been achieved.

The first is that it has repelled every possibility of a solution that foresees two countries for the two peoples. No Israeli government, left or right wing, would agree to the creation of a Palestinian state with Hamas at the helm of developments, the reason being that although missiles launched from Gaza pose a threat to the safety of Israeli citizens in southern and central Israel, missiles launched by Palestinians from the cities of Ramallah and Jericho could lead to the country disintegrating amidst violence and would make its citizens hostages without hope of release.

Yet the worst crime that Hamas has committed is against the Palestinian people themselves. It seems that hatred of Israel outweighs every resolve to build an independent Palestinian state next to it.

WHO WILL STAND UP FOR THE CHRISTIANS? Print E-mail

The following opinion article authored by World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder was published in the “New York Times” on August 19, 2014

WHY is the world silent while Christians are being slaughtered in the Middle East and Africa? In Europe and in the United States, we have witnessed demonstrations over the tragic deaths of Palestinians who have been used as human shields by Hamas, the terrorist organization that controls Gaza. The United Nations has held inquiries and focuses its anger on Israel for defending itself against that same terrorist organization. But the barbarous slaughter of thousands upon thousands of Christians is met with relative indifference.

The Middle East and parts of central Africa are losing entire Christian communities that have lived in peace for centuries. The terrorist group Boko Haram has kidnapped and killed hundreds of Christians this year — ravaging the predominantly Christian town of Gwoza, in Borno State in northeastern Nigeria, two weeks ago. Half a million Christian Arabs have been driven out of Syria during the three-plus years of civil war there. Christians have been persecuted and killed in countries from Lebanon to Sudan.
