US Appoints Special Envoy to Fight anti-Semitism

 

[PICTURED: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson]

 

World Jewish Congress president Ronald Lauder has welcomed the US State Department’s announcement that it would appoint a Special Envoy for the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, calling it a “crucial move” in a time of growing anti-Semitism.
 
“On behalf of the World Jewish Congress, I commend the US administration for its encouraging decision to prioritize the appointment of a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.
 
“America’s Jewish community is undoubtedly among the safest in the world, but the demonstrations of blatant anti-Semitism, bigotry and racism that we have seen of late make the importance of such an envoy ever clear.
 
“When Jews are targeted for being Jewish, it is a problem not just for the Jewish community, but for America as a whole. It is imperative that all US citizens work together to fight all forms of hatred when they rear their ugly heads.”
