Press Release: CIJA Condemns Terrorist Attack on Jerusalem Synagogue

November 18, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

In response to today’s deadly terrorist attack on worshippers in a Jerusalem synagogue Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) issued the following statement:

 

 

“We condemn this heinous terrorist attack that tragically cut short the lives of four rabbis and injured eight others, including one Canadian. We extend our heartfelt thoughts, prayers, and condolences to the victims and their families.
 

 

 

“This was not a random act of violence, but part of the mounting campaign of terror incited by Palestinian leaders, including Mahmoud Abbas. An entire generation of Palestinian children is being raised to hate Jews and encouraged to commit suicide attacks. Palestinian incitement to hatred and violence must stop.
 

 

 

“In condemning this attack, the international community must make it clear to Abbas that he cannot be considered a credible peace partner while circumventing negotiations by all means possible, including violence.
 

 

 

“We commend the Conservative Government, New Democratic Party, and Liberal Party for their swift and strong condemnation of the attack and expression support for the people of Israel.”
