NJDC Statement on the Passing of Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon

Listed in: Israel, NJDC News, Press Releases

The National Jewish Democratic Council mourns the death of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. A true defender of Israel, General Sharon served in the I.D.F. and in critical Cabinet posts prior to being elected Prime Minister in 2001. During his term, he worked to ensure a more secure future for the state by cooperating with other nations, including the United States, on the “road map” with hopes of bringing about peace. We join with the American people and all of Israel in extending our sympathies to his family and the country he so loved. Barukh dayan ha’emet (Blessed is the True Judge).
