In the past four weeks, dozens of Israeli civilians, police officers, and IDF soldiers have been killed, attacked, or seriously injured by Palestinian terrorists and violent clashes. The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ stands in solidarity with the people of Israel and offers support to victims of terror. We are deeply troubled and outraged by this wave of violence perpetrated on innocent Israeli citizens. We pray for the families and the victims of these attacks and urge the international community to speak out loudly against such acts of terrorism.
The current situation is intolerable. Israel must protect its citizens. Palestinian leaders must do all that they can to quell inflammatory falsehoods about Israeli intentions to alter the Temple Mount status and take all steps necessary to de-escalate tensions.
We stand with Israel in this time of sorrow and fear and with all people in the region who strive for peace, justice, and security.
