The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) on Sunday condemned a recent article by The Washington Post in which the headline read, “Israel’s war with Hamas Separates Palestinian babies from their mothers.”

Following the article's publication, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action at the SWC, said: "So-called coverage that features headlines like the one created by The Washington Post brings tears of joy to Hamas terrorists – who, as a reminder to anyone who has forgotten, led the deadly attacks over a month ago that slaughtered Jews and kidnapped innocent civilians."

"Continued demonization of Israel will only create increased misinformation and hate against Israelis who are fighting to destroy terrorists who have one goal in mind—murder Jews and destroy the only democracy in the Middle East – Israel.

"They prove every day, including today when they destroyed a hospital in Gaza, that Hamas doesn’t give a damn about live Gazans.

"They’re thrilled when the death toll ramps up so that they—with the assists from much of the media-- can blame Israel for the death toll," SWC concluded.
