MEDIA RELEASE

 

The Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) expresses its deep dismay at the horrific terrorist attacks on Muslims in Christchurch New Zealand, in an act of appalling right-wing racist terrorism. AIJAC conveys sincere condolences and sympathy to the victims and their families and all those whose lives have been so severely impacted by this outrage.

“The perpetrator of this monstrous hate crime will unite all decent people in solidarity with the victims,” said AIJAC Executive Director Colin Rubenstein. “Such atrocities will only strengthen our resolve and interfaith commitment to building more cohesive and harmonious societies,” he concluded.

Jeremy Jones, AIJAC Director of International and of Community Affairs added, “The alleged perpetrator asserted that they were acting to build a better world for their children and this is as morally repugnant as it is intellectually offensive. All fair-minded people want to build a world where we are able to exercise freedoms to live, to worship and believe.”
