Head of Wiesenthal Center
Meets With President Bush at the White House
  President Bush and Rabbi Hier light the flame of remembrance after touring the Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles during the Presidential campaign.


Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center met with U.S. President George W. Bush and other Jewish leaders during a round table meeting in the White House last week.

During the one hour meeting, which covered foreign policy and the situation in the Middle East, the President assured the group that he was committed to both the State of Israel and the war against terrorism.

"I have never heard any American president, from Reagan to Clinton, ally himself so closely with the Israeli position," said Rabbi Hier.

The President also pledged that the U.S was determined to rid the world of terrorism and said that it was "wrong and immoral to blow people up" while specifically naming the Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah terrorist groups.

Also in attendance were National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice and Press Secretary Ari Fleisher.
