ADL Urges European Leaders to Stand With Israel Against Hezbollah and Hamas

New York, NY, July 13, 2006 As Israel responds to unprovoked attacks on its northern and southern borders by Hezbollah and Hamas, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is calling on European leaders to stand resolute against terrorism as they come together for this weekend's G8 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Through a series of ads in the International Herald Tribune, ADL will deliver a single, powerful message about the importance of maintaining resolve in the face of the new onslaught against Israel, the kidnapping of its soldiers and the rocket attacks targeting its civilian population.  The ads will appear in a special edition of the newspaper which will be available to the leaders, ministers, diplomats, NGOs and journalists attending. The ads will also appear in the newspaper's regular circulation in Europe and the Middle East.

 "We are reminding world leaders of the statements they have made rejecting acceptance or negotiation with the Hezbollah terrorists and Hamas regime until they change their positions about Israel's right to exist and renounce terrorism," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.  "ADL is calling on Europe, the world community and the Quartet to stand resolute against terrorism and to not falter in their determination at this crucial point in time."

The ads quote from leaders who have openly condemned or criticized Hezbollah and Hamas, and remind them of their duty to stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel against terrorism.

The ads are part of ADL's ongoing mission to stand in steadfast solidarity with the State of Israel as it acts to protect its civilians in the north and the south, and to ensure the world stands firm in its commitments against terrorism.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
