Responding to Hamas rocket fire directed at Israeli territory in the wake of the unrest in Jerusalem, World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder said "World Jewry and decent people everywhere deplore the latest senseless escalation of violence with renewed rocket attacks on Israel. Hamas has time and again demonstrated its wanton disregard for human life and its unwillingness to accept the existence of a Jewish State in any borders at all. Under these circumstances, Israel has no choice but to respond with the force necessary to protects its citizens and put a stop to this threat."
