Wiesenthal Center Statement on Today’s US Action Against Syrian Base

April 6, 2017

“We support the President’s action taken directly against the base that launched the poison gas attacks against innocent Syrian civilians including women and children,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center

“This sends a clear message that when Crimes Against Humanity are committed, words alone are never sufficient,” they concluded.
