Wiesenthal Center commends White House for intervention in Iraq

August 8, 2014

“The Simon Wiesenthal Center commends President Obama for ordering military and humanitarian intervention in Iraq, without which, perhaps tens of thousands of innocent Christians and other minorities in Iraq whose lives are in immediate danger from the ISIS terrorists. We urge other NATO allies and decent people everywhere to stand against the barbarity of this growing terrorists threat."
