Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef, today issued the following statement following the alleged chemical attack in Syria.
“I have said in the past and I will say it again: What is happening in Syria is genocide of women and children in its cruelest form, using weapons of mass destruction.
“We have a moral obligation not to keep quiet and to try and stop this massacre.
“As Jews who have experienced genocide, as Jews whose Torah is a light to the nations, it is our moral obligation to try and stop this murder. It is an obligation no less important than the moral obligation to destroy the nuclear reactor in Syria.”
