Simon Wiesenthal Center reaction to Donald Trump's statement on Muslims

December 8, 2015

"Mr. Trump, by lumping all Muslims in the crosshairs of the Terrorism crisis only hurts the legitimate campaign against Islamist Fundamentalism and demeans law abiding American citizens," said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper Dean and Founder and Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO. "Such a policy would only serve to strengthen ISIS recruitment around the world," Center officials concluded.
