Islamist Terrorists Desecrate G-d’s Name with Mass Murder of Christian Students

April 2, 2015

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is condemning the mass murder of more than 147 Christians at a college in Kenya today.


“The slaughter of innocent students who dared to confirm their Christian belief before being executed by Al-Shabaab terrorists is an ultimate desecration of G-d’s name,” charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights group. “It is especially despicable that this horrific attack was launched during the Christian Holy season.”


“This outrage demands the condemnation all religious leaders — Muslims, Christians and Jews, and action by world powers to take on and defeat Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, and al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists who murder and maim in the name of G-d,” Rabbi Cooper concluded.
