Moulton Condemns Recent Violence in Israel

Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Seth Moulton’s (D-MA) released the following statement regarding the recent violence in Israel:

“Terrorism has no place in modern society, and I am deeply saddened by the escalation of violence that has erupted in Israel over the past several days. Whether you are walking down the street or standing at a bus stop, nobody should have to live in fear of losing his or her life at the hands of extremism. We must all strive for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Terrorism is the enemy of peace, both in the cities and towns of Israel today and in the negotiations that will lead to a two-state solution tomorrow.

“I urge Palestinian President Abbas to confront these attacks with calls for peace rather than further incitement of violence, which only deepens the divide between Israelis and Palestinians. At the same time, the United States and the international community must remain committed to peace and stability in the face of the indiscriminate violence that has plagued this region for far too long.”
