The National Jewish Assembly (NJA) unequivocally condemns the Palestinian terrorists responsible for conducting two bombing attacks in Jerusalem on November 23.
This callous act of violence has sadly claimed the lives of a 16 year-old Israeli-Canadian Aryeh Schupak and 50 year-old Israeli Tadese Tashume Ben Ma’ada.
The attack has reportedly wounded 22 additional innocent bystanders. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families at this time.
NJA Vice-Chairman Steve Winston said, “Once again, we see Palestinian terrorists targeting public transport in their efforts to maim and kill as many Israelis as they can, something horribly reminiscent of the darkest days of the Second Intifada. As awful and heart wrenching as each loss of life to Palestinian terrorism is, the terrorists, the Palestinian Authority, and Hamas, who themselves support terrorism, must understand that their ongoing prioritising of terrorism and the destruction of Israel will only go against them and the Palestinian people in general, whilst Israel will, justifiably so, continue to take all necessary action to defend all its citizens.”
The National Jewish Assembly stands with the people of Israel and supports Israel’s efforts to defend itself against terror.
