Brooklyn, NY – Councilman David G. Greenfield releases the following statement on the terrorist attack today.
“When I saw the news that four people were killed in a Jerusalem synagogue by Palestinians, I was in shock,” he said. “Shocked that anyone could be so brutal to murder these worshipers during their prayers, shocked at the gruesome way they were executed, shocked at the celebrations in Gaza over the death of these innocents, shocked that this Palestinian terrorism violence continues to fester in Israel – a land of peace,” said Greenfield.
“The one thing that was not shocking is that the terrorist organization Hamas applauded these vicious murders. The international community must stand up and put an end to the blood-thirsty Hamas-led government of Gaza. Today’s murders were more vicious than any killings to date by ISIS. ISIS, Hamas and their supporters are poisonous fruits from the very same Islamic terrorist tree that must be cut down.”
