EJC President Ariel Muzicant op-ed in Jerusalem Post: “Removing agency from Jews in their own self defense is always antisemitism”

"Today, the ivory towers of international justice organisations once again believe that Jews should have no agency over the protection of their own lives. How else to explain the perverse decision of the ICC Chief Prosecutor to seek arrest warrants for those who seek to stop Jews being murdered?" said EJC President Ariel Muzicant.

Shoah Commemoration

More than 70 years after the Shoah, the systematic murder of six million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators, representing a third of the world’s Jewish population and a half of Europe’s, it is incumbent upon us as Jews and as Europeans to maintain the memory of this most unique of genocides and to draw the lessons from it for our own days.

We must seek different methods to convey the same message of where hatred and intolerance and antisemitism lead. The most important of these is through education and the EJC works with governments and local authorities to ensure the insertion and maintenance of Holocaust education in curricula and non-curricula activities.
