UK chief rabbi says killings will ‘serve only to unite us’ as European Jewish Congress condemns ‘cowardly and barbaric’ act
The European Jewish Congress condemned what it called a “cowardly and barbaric terror attack.” The EJC statement also extended its condolences to the British government and the British people.
“Prime Minister Rutte expressed before the elections that a populist ‘domino effect’ was taking place across the globe,” EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor said. “However, we hope that this electoral victory will begin the reverse, a ‘domino effect’ of mainstream parties pushing back against extremism and populism.”
European Jewish Congress (EJC) President Dr. Moshe Kantor met with the Pope in the Vatican today and said that he considers the audience a gesture of brotherhood towards every Jew.“Jews still bear the marks of the Shoah in their hearts and even today continue to be threatened by Antisemitism in all its vicious forms,” Dr. Kantor said, praising the visit by the Pope to Auschwitz last year.
