In an op-ed piece that has quickly reverberated and resonated throughout media sites, blogs and social media, Ronald S. Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress calls for the world attention to the persecution and atrocities being forced upon the Christians in the middle east and Africa. He asks why the world is silent and references how the Jews understand first hand what happens when the world is silent.

Read his impassioned plea and ask yourself what you can do do help…for us here at WRN in the U.S., it involves reaching out to our political representatives and making it clear that we support U.S. humanitarian aid and rescue. If you know of other ways that we can all help bring this situation to light or support efforts, please let us know here.

Ronald S. Lauder writes:

But the barbarous slaughter of thousands upon thousands of Christians is met with relative indifference.
