ECTR President Condemns London Terror Attack
Expresses concern that radical extremists still have the ability and motivation to murder in Europe.
PR9.NET March 24, 2017 - The European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR) has strongly condemned the terror attack outside the Houses of Parliament in London on Wednesday.
"We strongly condemn this cowardly and barbaric terror attack.?"President of the ECTR, Dr. Moshe Kantor, said. "This strike, at the heart of democracy, on the anniversary of the Brussels attacks which claimed the lives of 32 people, once again demonstrates that radical extremists continue to have the ability and motivation to commit mass murder in Europe."
"This murderous ideology targets all of Europeans and all of Europe must stand together to fight this scourge," Dr. Kantor continued. "We need greater intelligence sharing among European law enforcement and intelligence agencies and stronger policing laws to act against those in Europe, and across the world, who provide the means, motivation and ideology to enable these attacks."
"The European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation extends our deepest condolences to the British Government and people and pray for the welfare of those injured. We call for a robust and collective response which clearly identifies the culprits and the ideology which underpins these acts."
