Chief Rabbi reacts to terror attacks in Brussels

This morning’s terrorist attacks were motivated by the most ‘inhuman brutality’, but will only succeed in strengthening our resolve against terror, the Chief Rabbi has said. He was responding to the coordinated bomb blasts that brought carnage to Brussels, claiming many innocent lives.

Reacting to the latest in a series of global terror incidents, the Chief Rabbi said: “Once again, with inhuman brutality and disregard for the sanctity of life, terrorists have maimed and murdered innocent men and women in Europe. But while they rejoice in the pain that that they have visited upon us – we will not be cowed.”

“If anything” he continued, “they have strengthened our commitment to the values of peaceful coexistence, democracy, the rule of law and human dignity. Our resolve cannot be broken by terror whether it strikes in Israel, Turkey, Paris or Brussels.”
