The World Jewish Congress on Monday expressed support for the Syrian opposition "in their quest to free themselves of a brutal dictatorship," and official statement said.

The WJC in the statement called on the international community "to take urgent measures to stop further bloodshed."

Commenting on reports that Syrians were paid by President Bashar Assad to try and break through the Israeli border during Naksa Day events Sunday, WJC President Ronald S. Lauder said "The international community cannot let this criminal regime continue to murder its own people and to destabilize the entire region.”

Lauder added, “It seems that, like his Iranian masters on whose support he depends, Mr. Assad is far more comfortable in wreaking havoc than in bringing stability and encouraging peace and democracy in Syria and in the region."
