Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, called on Ronald Lauder to resign as president of World Jewish Congress, following the news that Lauder reportedly gave more than $1 million to support a rabidly anti-Muslim advertising campaign run by Secure America Now:
“Ronald Lauder must immediately resign as president of World Jewish Congress after bankrolling a shameful and bigoted anti-Muslim advertising campaign. His full embrace of anti-Muslim bigotry is a betrayal of the Jewish community and fundamental American values. His actions disqualify him from leading an organization that represents Jewish communities around the globe.”
