Media Release


AIJAC strongly condemns yesterday's horrific murder of 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir in Jerusalem.

While all leads are being explored, the possibility raised by Israeli authorities that this could have been a revenge attack for the brutal murder of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers is absolutely abhorrent.

Israel is a nation where everyone must act and be accountable according to the rule of law.

We join Israel's Prime Minister in his call for the police to swiftly carry out their investigative work towards speedily bringing those responsible to justice for this heinous crime.


Mark Leibler AC
National Chairman

Dr. Colin Rubenstein AM
Executive Director
