Simon Wiesenthal Center Reaction to Terrorist Attacks in Jerusalem

October 9, 2016

Simon Wiesenthal Center officials Rabbis Marvin Hier, Founder and Dean, and Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean, presently in Israel - reaction to today's murder and wounding of Israelis:

These attacks are a bloody reminder that it isn't "settlements" that block the path to peace, but an unending trail of Palestinian violence and terrorism, which is condoned and celebrated by the PA.

On behalf of our 400,000 constituent families we express our condolences to the families murdered by the terrorist and wish a speedy recovery for the wounded.
