Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County)  issued the following statement regarding the recent violence in Israel.

“I am deeply saddened by the recent terrorist attacks that have taken place throughout Israel.  Indiscriminately stabbing a 13-year-old boy on his bicycle and shooting a 76-year-old Israeli-American on a bus are acts of terror.  These attacks and the statements that inspire them do not do justice to those seeking a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  It is incumbent on the international community and Palestinian leaders to condemn these attacks in the strongest possible terms.   I am hopeful that the new measures announced by Secretary Kerry, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and Jordanian King Abdullah II governing the Temple Mount – including the installation of 24-hour surveillance cameras – will also help to restore calm.”
