European pols decry synagogue attack

Condemnations of the Har Nof synagogue attack continue to pour in from leading politicians across Europe.

“I’m horrified by the barbaric attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem — an appalling act of terrorism to be totally condemned,” tweets Ed Miliband, the leader of the British Labour party and a leading candidate for prime minister in the upcoming national elections.

Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard strongly condemns the attack. “Our thoughts go out to the victims and their relatives,” he tweets. His Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz posts a similar message, adding that he sees in the attack a “clear need to restart” the peace process.

Margot Wallström, the foreign minister of Sweden – the first Western European country to recognize a Palestinian state – condemns the “horrific terrorist attack on Israeli worshipers in Jerusalem.” On her Twitter account, she writes: “The spiral of violence must be stopped.”
