The European Jewish Congress firmly condemns the recent and ongoing terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. We mourn the loss of dozens of human lives and share in the grief of their families and those of the wounded.
The EJC calls for the immediate release of all hostages – regardless of their nationality – and wishes for the safe return home of all of them.
Terrorism threatens democratic societies around the world and no continent is spared from its atrocities. The fight against these radical Islamic groups and their sponsors is a concern for all those who share the fundamental core values of democracy.
The EJC calls for a united front to stand against terrorist attacks, and demands that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and their backers be brought to swift justice.
