Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the terrorist attack in Jerusalem:
“I am deeply disturbed by the brutal killing of four people this morning in Jerusalem, three of whom were American citizens. I join all those around the world who have condemned this heinous crime. Terrorism has no place in a house of worship, nor anywhere in today’s world. This senseless act serves no valid political purpose; all it does is perpetuate hate and hostilities.
“I sincerely hope that all sides exercise maximum restraint and avoid retaliation in the coming days. It has been devastating to see so many acts of violence in the region in recent weeks, and events can too easily spiral out of control. If we are to have any future chance of achieving peaceful coexistence and a two state solution, then the violence must end now. The Israeli and Palestinian people and their leaders must come together, engage constructively and show there is another path beyond this vicious cycle of death and destruction.”
