World Jewish Congress condemns 'disgraceful' neo-Nazi march in Washington: 'Hatred and extremism cannot be allowed to tear the fabric of our society apart' Featured

NEW YORK – The World Jewish Congress condemns in the strongest possible terms the reprehensible neo-Nazi march that took place in Washington on the one-year anniversary of the violent events in Charlottseville, WJC North America Chair Evelyn Sommer.

“A gathering of racists and hatemongers on the anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville march can only be described as a disgrace and embarrassment for the United States, undermining our country’s principles of freedom and justice for all, and spitting in the face of the very values democracy represents.

“This vulgar display of hate does nothing to ennoble America, rather serves as a regression to the old hatreds espoused in days past by the likes of notorious racists such as Father Coughlin and the Ku Klux Klan, that we had hoped would be moribund by this point. Shouting racist and anti-Semitic epithets, with the primary intent to intimate others, incites to violence and inevitably results in tragedy.

“People of good will the world over must unite to stand against hatred and extremism. These cannot be allowed lest the fabric of our society be torn apart. We must resolve to stand unified and fight for mutual respect and tolerance,” Sommer said.
