Masorti Olami condemns the terrorist attack in Paris

Masorti Olami is appalled and condemns the terrorist attack on the office of a French newspaper. At least 12 people are dead, and several of the wounded are in critical condition, after hooded gunmen shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “Avenge the prophet,” stormed the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the center of the French capital.

Islamic terrorism knows no geographical limits and threatens Klal Yisrael throughout the world.

The terrorists who remain at large purposely chose a target that espouses democracy and free speech.

Masorti Olami communities around the world will not submit to senseless hatred and will proudly champion our core values of pluralism and religious expression.
