AIJAC expresses horror at the murderous terrorism in Sri Lanka

Media Statement

 

“No words are sufficient to convey our horror at the murderous terrorism in Sri Lanka, in which hundreds of innocent children, men and women in prayer were among those who had their lives taken in almost unparalleled acts of barbarism.

“The Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) sends our condolences to the families of the Christians murdered while at prayer on the Holy Day of Easter Sunday and to the other victims of the multiple bombing attacks.

“We hope that the unimaginable suffering of the Sri Lankan Christian community, with so many having had their lives stolen from them and many more suffering physical injuries and immense psychological pain, is eased to some degree by the knowledge that they are in the thoughts and hearts of so many others all around the world.

“This attack on the people of Sri Lanka, and Christians in prayer was an attack on humanity and a shocking manifestation of immense evil.

“We stand in solidarity with Sri Lanka, with Christians and with all victims and targets of terrorism.”
