Statement from the Zionist Federation of New Zealand

The Zionist Federation of New Zealand condemns in the strongest possible terms the despicable and cowardly terrorist attack on the Muslim community of Christchurch who were gathering for Friday prayers.
An attack on any part of the New Zealand community is an attack on us all. This is an act of pure evil and has no place in New Zealand or anywhere in the world. As a community we stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters and offer them our support and prayers.
To not be able to congregate safely as a community, or pray in a place of worship is something none of us thought we would see here in New Zealand. All people should feel safe to come together as a community to pray, celebrate and commemorate.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those injured and to the families of those whose lives have been callously cut short.
The Executive Committee of the Zionist Federation of New Zealand
