Passover Greetings From Rabbi Marvin Hier

April, 2004

The following are excerpts from a Passover Greeting sent by Rabbi Hier sponsored by the Simon Wiesenthal Center at their website:

It's very much to the point to see how antisemitic the world still is. The following shows how, at this Easter season, Gibson's PASSION can influence the antisemitic world. It contains an example of how the HAMAS leader recently killed by Israel is compared to Jesus.

On March 27 2004, "ELEFTHEROTYPIA" ran this cartoon:

The Woman on the left asks: "Why did the Jewish Government kill a religious leader?" The man answers: "They were practicing for Easter."

And meanwhile in Europe, horrible antisemitic cartoons, like the one published in a Greek newspaper poison attitudes towards Israel and the Jewish people. It is this dangerous double standard and hypocrisy that the Simon Wiesenthal Center is fighting on the frontlines, in Brussels, in New York and in Geneva.

We cannot carry on this fight alone. We need your financial support and help. As we celebrate Passover together with our families and thank G-d for the freedoms we enjoy, take a moment to remember what Simon Wiesenthal said, "Freedom is not a gift from heaven, we must fight for it every day." Help us carry on that fight by sending in a contribution to support the work of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

We need your support to continue our work. Support the work of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
