Israel, Germany and France join together to decry terrorism-by-truck

The Culture

A delegation of ambassadors and senior diplomats from the European Union expressed thei solidarity in Israel at a series of events held in Jerusalem Wednesday by The Israel Project (TIP), following Sunday’s terrorist car ramming attack in which four soldiers were killed.

The events were held under the slogan “United Against Terror,” and were designed to bring the various nations which have been affected by terrorism together.

EU Ambassador to Israel Lars Faarborg-Andersen compared Sunday’s ramming attack with similar attacks which have taken place in Europe recently:

“We are here in solidarity with the victims and the families of this terrible terror incident that took place a couple days ago in Jerusalem and took the lives of four young people in a totally meaningless way.” Ambassador Faarborg-Andersen said. “I think, as your truck also demonstrates, that terrorism strikes everywhere – Nice, Jerusalem, Berlin. This is the whole point. Nobody is free from terror, irrespective of where we happen to be on the planet. That’s the reason why it is so necessary for all of us to show solidarity internationally and cross-border [sic] in fighting this despicable phenomenon which we have so tragically seen strike here again in Jerusalem.”

“Our hearts and thoughts go out, of course, to the victims and their bereaved families. And I think that we collectively must do all we can to fight this scourge and end these meaningless and tragic deaths.”
