NZ Friends of Israel Condemns Christchurch Mosque Attack
Christchurch, 15 March 2019.
The NZ Friends of Israel Association strongly condemns the attack on the Christchurch mosque and the Islamic community.
"Our hearts go out to all those who have suffered the loss of loved ones, who have been seriously and even gravely wounded, and those who experienced such a traumatic nightmare," said the President of the Society, Tony Kan.
"We hope that a spirit of forgiveness prevails over any desire for revenge and hate.
May the people of Christchurch show the world that even in this, it can respond with grace, compassion and dignity.
We hope that there will be no ongoing ethnic or religious conflict arising from this tragedy.
All New Zealanders should show their repugnance for what has been done today."
New Zealand Friends of Israel Association Inc (www.nzfoi.org) was formed nearly fifty years ago. It fights racial and religious intolerance through raising awareness of Jewish history and culture.
