Jewish leader: indifference to slaughter of Christians is 'obscene'
Catholic World News - August 20, 2014
Saying that the lack of public response to the slaughter of Iraqi Christians is "obscene," the president of the World Jewish Congress argues: "Good people must join together and stop this revolting wave of violence."
In a New York Times piece, Ronald Lauder points to the common heritage of Jews and Christians. He writes:
Now, sadly, we share a kind of suffering: Christians are dying because of their beliefs, because they are defenseless and because the world is indifferent to their suffering.
