SWC: Beheading of Priest in Church - An evil abomination that debases all humanity

July 26, 2016

"The beheading of a priest in a Church in Normandy, France is an evil abomination that debases all humanity," said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO in a statement from Jerusalem.

"How many more terrorist outrages will have to occur before the US together with NATO and other civilized nations finally wipe out ISIS and other Islamist terror groups? Words alone will not defeat this evil."

"How many more terrorist attacks must take place before Muslim leaders finally take on the ideology that spawns such barbarity?" Cooper concluded.
