World Jewish Congress President Lauder condemns Egypt mosque attack: We must stand together and defeat this scourge of terrorism

NEW YORK – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder on Friday harshly condemned the “horrifying and barbaric” attack that killed at least 235 civilians in the al-Radwa Mosque in Egypt, adding that the world must stand united in its resolve to defeat this scourge of terrorism.

“The World Jewish Congress harshly and unequivocally condemns the horrifying and barbaric terrorist attack carried out against innocent civilians in Egypt this morning. World Jewry stands in solidarity with the victims of the attack, and all of the people of Egypt.

“This was a cowardly assault on humanity that must be dealt with in the harshest measures possible. The international community must stand united in its resolve to defeat this scourge of terrorism that is spreading unfettered throughout the world.

“Terrorism of this kind does not discriminate – we are all targets. Decent people of all religions, faiths, and nationalities in this world must defend each other and look after each other. We cannot let terror reign.”
