The American Council for World Jewry's Executive Director, Zeev Rubinstein:
"I am horrified that in 2012 Jewish children on their way to school in France would be targeted for death. In recent weeks we have witnessed terrorist acts planned and executed against Israelis and Jews in many parts of the world. Those who value life and believe Jews are entitled to the same liberties and protections as everyone else must speak out loudly. Governments and law enforcement must work with greater urgency to put an end to these outrages. We also must be mindful that the continuing isolation and vilification of Israel -- criticized repeatedly for the crime of engaging in self-defense against terrorists committed to its destruction -- plants the seeds of hatred and violence that can take the lives of innocent children walking to school."

The AP reports that President Obama tried to assuage Jewish supporters during a fundraising stop in New York hosted by a prominent Jewish donor, Jack Rosen, who had been billed among prospective fundraisers ahead of time as a chance for a "substantive and candid" discussion about concerns in the Jewish community.
Chief among them has been Israel and lingering questions among some Jewish voters about the administration's commitment to Israel.

Prominent New York Jewish activist Jack Rosen is hosting a fund-raising event tonight for President Obama, who hopes to get as much Jewish support in his 2012 re-election bid as he did in 2008.
Rosen, chairman of both the American Jewish Congress and the American Council on World Jewry, is staging the event at his Upper East Side residence.
He was appointed to the US Holocaust Memorial Council by both former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and was a guest when Clinton signed the Israel-Jordan peace treaty.
He’s also a member of the Council of Foreign Relations.
Born in Germany, he lost his grandparents and other relatives in the Holocaust.
Rosen runs Rosen Partners, a residential and commercial real-estate firm, and has taught at Beijing University.
About 30 honchos are expected to attend the 5 p.m. event, with tickets starting at $10,000 per person.
