President Rivlin Sends Message For American Jews Following Charlottesville Incident

President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday evening, sent a letter to Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Mr. Malcolm Hoenlein, asking him to convey his support and solidarity for the American Jewish community.

The President wrote, “At this difficult time I want to express my support and solidarity, and that of all the Israeli people, with you and your communities, and ask that you kindly convey this message on my behalf to the Jewish communities across the US.”

He noted, “The very idea that in our time we would see a Nazi flag – perhaps the most vicious symbol of anti-Semitism – paraded in the streets of the world’s greatest democracy, and Israel’s most cherished and greatest ally is almost beyond belief.

“We have seen manifestations of anti-Semitism again and again arise across the world; in Europe and the Middle East. In the face of such evil, we stand now as we did then. With faith. With faith in humanity, with faith in democracy, and with faith in justice. I know that the great nation of the United States of America and its leaders will know how to face this difficult challenge, and prove to the world the robustness and strength of democracy and freedom.”

President Rivlin concluded, “As we say Chazak, Chazak, ve’Nitchazek. Be strong, be strong, and we will be strong.”

    The anti semitism around the world is coming primarily from the left and the Muslims. Did you see the president send letters, we stand with the right?

    Let him look at the left of his own country, they are the source of a lot of the material the anti semites around the world use to incite violence and venom against the Jews. Did you see him make a fus about it?
