Washington, July 13, 2005 - In response to yesterday’s terrorist attack outside a shopping mall in Netanya, Israel, Mark J. Pelavin, Associate Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, issued the following statement:

    We vehemently condemn yesterday’s brutal and senseless terrorist attack.  We send our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims, and stand in solidarity with our Israeli brothers and sisters as they, again, are forced to confront the evil of terrorism.  Targeting civilians at a shopping mall is morally abhorrent, and we call on our colleagues in the faith community who, like the Reform Jewish Movement, yearn for a peaceful Middle East to join us in our condemnation of this attack in the strongest terms possible.

    The terrorists seek to destroy not only the lives of those who they killed, but the prospects for security and peace for all Israelis and Palestinians.  We call on President Mahmoud Abbas to bring to justice those responsible for this attack and truly dismantle the terrorist infrastructure so that his stated vision of a non-violent quest for independence and peace can move forward.
