Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Terrorism

Adopted by the CCAR at the 92nd Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
Jerusalem, Israel June 23-28, 1981

Whereas, terrorism is a plague upon the international community, and

Whereas, the destabilizing effect of terrorism is a threat to civilization, and

Whereas, there is an identifiable link among world terrorist organizations, which are financed and trained by the Soviet Union and Libya to the detriment of world order,

Therefore, be it resolved that the Central Conference of American Rabbis condemns all governments who train, support, or harbor terrorist organizations, such as the PLO and its constituents, and

Be it further resolved, that we urge the government of the United States to oppose all terrorist groups and governments, both right and left, who would threaten individual liberties and desecrate human life.
