Tuesday, 23 November 2010


Yesterday American Council for World Jewry chairman Jack Rosen said “Amid the Cold War rancor of the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan hardly shied away from criticizing and blocking Moscow's policies on a range of issues, yet he realized that Americans would be more secure with a bilateral, verifiable reduction in strategic nuclear weapons.” Cooperation with Russia is “indispensable to assuring global security and American goals, notably in blocking Iran’s dangerous quest for its own nuclear capability,” he said.

Jack Rosen, chairman of the American Council of World Jewry, wrote in a letter to President Kirchner that with the death of her husband, "the entire Jewish people have lost a true friend and champion.
