J Street Saddened and Outraged by Jerusalem Terror Attack

October 9, 2016

J Street is saddened and outraged by today’s terror attack in Jerusalem. A drive-by shooting carried out by a Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem has killed two Israelis and injured several more.

We hope for the rapid and complete recovery of the wounded and our thoughts go out to the victims and their families, who now must cope with this terrible tragedy. We stand with all of the people of Jerusalem who deserve to live in a city of peace and coexistence, not fear and violence.

It should be clear to all that this violence is unacceptable and senseless. There can be no justification for acts of terror, which accomplish nothing but sow the seeds of hatred and distrust.
