Ambassador Rosenthal Speaks On Anti-Semitism

Ambassador Hannah Rosenthal spoke on February 14 at the Aventura-Turnberrry Jewish Center. Rosenthal is employed by the State Department as the U.S. special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism in 193 nations around the world. Her Florida lecture was promoted by the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and the Aventura-Turnberry Jewish Center.

Rosenthal related an incident that occurred shortly after she was named to her post. She was visiting Poland and a prominent Catholic Bishop made a remark that smacked of Holocaust denial. Six months later, Rosenthal was on another mission to Poland with eight Muslim clerics. After the group met with a cardinal, the cleric asked Rosenthal to stay behind for a moment. He then told her that the bishop she had brought to his attention was no longer a bishop, was no longer authorized to teach at any Catholic university, and was banned from making any further Holocaust denial statements.

“There are disappointments,” said Rosenthal, “but there are also victories.”

Israel maintains two nuclear reactors, one in Nahal Sorek, and the other is the Negev Nuclear Research Center near Dimona. The reactor was provided to Israel by the United States.
