15.6.2014, worldjewishcongress.org – Budapest convention: Lauder speaks out against growing assault on Christians

Reciting a litany of assaults on Christians around the world, World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder has told a large-scale gathering of Israel’s Christian allies that he would continue to speak out against the violence and oppression that is engulfing Christians, especially in the Middle East.

“I will speak out across the globe with world leaders and with ordinary citizens, and I will tell them that we will never tolerate any kind of anti-Christian threats, just as we will not tolerate anti-Semitism,” Lauder told the Jerusalem Day Convention at the Israel Allies European Summit in Budapest, adding, “Your fight is my fight.”

Lauder also condemned the Hungarian Jobbik Party, which emerged as the second-largest political force in the country in the recent European elections.

“I will call the Jobbik party what it truly is, a far-right extremist party that agitates against Roma, against Jews, and against our common Western values of decency and the protection of all religions.”
