APN Outraged at Violent Escalation in Israel

Washington, DC – Americans for Peace Now (APN) is outraged and heartbroken at the spiraling violence in Israel today, a day in which Israelis were shaken by three terrorist attacks. In one of these attacks, in Jaffa, a young American tourist was murdered and his wife severely injured.

APN strongly condemns these attacks. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel, who are facing a horrible wave of terrorism.

This terrible escalation takes place as Vice President Biden visits Israel to discuss Israel’s security challenges. It is a reminder that Israel’s security threats are not limited to tanks, fighter planes and missiles across its borders, but are also attributed to the festering occupation, its ongoing rule over millions of disenfranchised, oppressed, angry Palestinians who can’t see hope of a better future.
