WJC condemns missile attack from Gaza that wounded 7 Israelis

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 25 marzo 2019

NEW YORK – The World Jewish Congress strongly condemns the missile attack from Gaza that struck northern Tel Aviv on Monday, wounding seven people.“It is absolutely intolerable that militants in the Gaza Strip are taking a free hand to callously escalate violence against Israel, completely unprovoked and in violation of international norms. The World Jewish Congress holds Hamas responsible for every attack that emanates from its territory, and strongly underscores that Israel reserves the full right to defend itself and its citizens against all aggression,” World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder said.“Our thoughts are with the victims of this attack, who miraculously survived despite a direct hit on their home. It is inconceivable that the residents and citizens of Israel should have to live in fear for their lives and property. Hamas is a terrorist organization that exploits the lives of innocent civilians in its boundless quest to terrify Israelis and destroy the State of Israel. It is high time that the international community recognize Hamas for what it is and condemn it in the strongest terms possible,” Lauder said.

WJC President Ronald S. Lauder regrets UN chief’s ‘dangerous justification of terrorism’

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 gennaio 2016

new yorkNEW YORK – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder voiced concern Tuesday after United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon told the Security Council that the recent wave of Palestinian violence and incitement was the result of “frustration” and a natural reaction to “half a century of occupation.” “I deeply regret the United Nations secretary general’s dangerous justification of terrorism and the murder of Jews,” Lauder said. “It is extremely worrying and shocking that the leader of the international community has chosen to excuse the inexcusable.“Dozens of Israelis have died at the hands of Palestinian murderers over the last few months. Mr. Ban’s condemnation of these gruesome attacks sounds hollow given that he seems to condone the violence against Israelis in almost the same breath,” Lauder said. “I would expect to hear clear and unequivocal words from the United Nations leadership that there is no excuse whatsoever for stabbing people to death. Mr. Ban’s statement will only encourage Palestinians to carry out more of the barbaric attacks we have seen in recent weeks. Crimes that are understood to be unacceptable in Paris and in Brussels – the random murder of people in the street or in their homes – cannot be somehow explained away when it comes to Israel,” Lauder added in reference to the recent terrorist attacks in Europe. In his remarks to the Security Council, Ban said: “Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half century of occupation and the paralysis of the peace process… It is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism.”
