(In stark contrast, check out Eric Cantor’s absurd and disgusting statement, exploiting this tragedy to yet again attack the Obama Administration and push his far-right-wing, hard line, anti-peace agenda on the world. As always, Eric Cantor is a disgrace to the Jewish people and to America. As a Jewish American, I utterly “refudiate” him! – promoted by lowkell)
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, released the following statement on yesterday’s bombing at a Jerusalem bus stop that killed one person and left dozens injured:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of yesterday’s bombing in Jerusalem. The return of terrorist violence to Jerusalem is a disturbing and discouraging sign that too much time has passed since Israelis and Palestinians have engaged one another in a meaningful way to resolve their conflict.
“Along with the horrific murders in the West Bank settlement of Itamar and the escalating violence in Gaza, yesterday’s attack is a reminder that innocent people suffer the worst effects of this conflict. Whatever message the misguided author of this act intended, the message for those of us who seek peace is clear: the Obama Administration, the Israeli Government, the Palestinian Authority and the international community must move urgently toward serious, substantive negotiations toward a durable peace before it is too late.”
