IRF Condemns Most Recent Acts Of Terror
July 4, 2016
The International Rabbinic Fellowship strongly condemns the recent terrorist outrages against civilians from many countries at the Istanbul airport, in Bangladesh and Iraq and most recently the murders of our brothers and sisters in the Judean Hills near the city of Hebron including that of Hallel Ariel, age 14 from Kiryat Arba, and Miki Mark, age 48 and father of 10 from Otniel. We express our solidarity with the victims and the grief and pain of their families and loved ones.
We are disgusted by the celebration of these murders by Hamas spokesmen and others who celebrate the murder of innocents. No political cause can justify the murder of innocents in cold blood. We call on the the international community to support Israel and other countries as they fulfill their obligation and duty to protect their citizens.
We pray for the swift recovery of all those who have been injured and express our condolences to the families of all the victims of terror.
