WJC President Hails PM Cameron For Combatting Anti-Semitism and Islamic Extremism Featured

NEW YORK, World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder today hailed British Prime Minister David Cameron for his proposal to combat the spread of Islamic extremism in England, which includes steps to counter the growth of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and rhetoric. Cameron unveiled the British government’s five-year plan to defeat homegrown extremism in a speech today in Birmingham.

“We congratulate Prime Minister Cameron for his strong stand against anti-Semitism and Muslim fanaticism. The resurgence of anti-Semitism and the spread of Islamic extremism across Europe is particularly troubling and Mr. Cameron’s plan takes a vital step toward combating these destructive forces.”

Lauder also urged other European leaders to follow the Prime Minister’s lead. “We urge other European leaders to show the same kind of bold leadership and address these critical issues in their own countries,” Lauder said. “Once again, we are seeing the rebirth of classic anti-Semitic conspiracy mongering targeting Jews across Europe – and it is vital that Europe act now before the situation deteriorates.”
