SWC Urges Security Council to Condemn Palestinian Terror

April 18, 2016

“The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemns the latest terrorist attack in Jerusalem which has wounded many innocent people. We pray for their speedy recovery and express our full solidarity with the citizens of united Jerusalem and the nation of Israel,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, SWC Founder and Dean and Rabbi Abraham Cooper, SWC Associate Dean.

“Additionally, the Center calls on France and other UN Security Council members currently seeking a resolution to condemn Israel to instead finally convene a special session to condemn, by name, Hamas terrorists and other Palestinian entities associated with the Palestinian Authority that promote terrorism 24/7 among Palestinians. It is they who are the real impediments to peace," the Rabbis concluded.
