ADL Expresses Strong Support for President Obama’s Decision to Deploy U.S. Military Force Against Syria

New York, NY, September 3, 2013 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), citing the significant national security interests at stake and the moral imperative to act, today expressed strong support for President Obama’s decision to deploy U.S. military force in response to Syria’s barbarous use of chemical weapons against its own people.

Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

We welcome President Obama’s demonstration of U.S. leadership in responding to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.  In recent days, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have forcefully made the case for United States action against the Syrian regime in the wake of its use of chemical weapons against its own citizens. 

The president clearly and unequivocally identified the significant national security interests of the United States and moral imperative underlying his decision to use military force against Syria.  We support the president’s decision.

Congress should act swiftly to add its voice to hold President Bashar al-Assad accountable for the wanton slaughter of his own citizens.

Any nation that violates international norms and obligations which threaten the peace and security of the world must face the consequences of those dangerous acts.

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.
