President Obama Condemns Bombing In Jerusalem & Recent Rockets Attacks


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is the statement released by the White House a short while ago:

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the bombing in Jerusalem today, as well as the rockets and mortars fired from Gaza in recent days. Together with the American people, I offer my deepest condolences for those injured or killed. There is never any possible justification for terrorism. The United States calls on the groups responsible to end these attacks at once and we underscore that Israel, like all nations, has a right to self-defense.  We also express our deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday. We stress the importance of calm and urge all parties to do everything in their power to prevent further violence and civilian casualties.”

  1. marfern1 and devorahle…you are so full of bile that you didn’t read the article carefully enough to realize that the comment about “defense” was support of Israel’s right to seld defense.

    YWN…this comment is as much directed at you as it is at the two above…afterall, the article is 2 days old. You really ought to consider Editor’s Comments on factual points. I read this today in the context of stopping a BT acquaintance from sending it to a frei Jewish rag in frustration about the “hate-mongering crazies” in the “Orthodox blogisphere” – those are her quotes exactly.
