"Being anti-Israel is being antisemitic, plain and simple," said President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald S. Lauder on Sunday at The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference.

“We must teach the next generation to embrace their heritage, rather than abandon it,” he added, speaking at the summit in New York.

Turning to US President Donald Trump and the Middle East conflict, Lauder said that Israel has a "tremendous friend" in the American leader.

"I've known Trump for 50 years, Israel has a tremendous friend in President Trump," he stated.
