WJC Takes Stance Against Racism at UN Human Rights Council
WJC Representative Leon Saltiel spoke at the UN Human Rights Council on a discussion of the incompatibility between democracy and racism. He made it clear:
"This Chamber should have no illusions: wherever the origins of these hateful actions may lie, be it on the left or on the right, be it related to extremist or populist ideologies, antisemitism is at the heart of each of these manifestations. Indeed, antisemitism, the hatred against the Jews, has been a disease in all societies throughout the centuries and regrettably this virus is only getting stronger."
