Statement from Dr Danny Lamm, President of the Zionist Federation of Australia on the murder of four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels:
The Zionist Federation of Australia mourns the loss of the four victims of the Jewish Museum shooting in Brussels, Belgium over the weekend, including two Israeli citizens, Emanuel and Mira Riva a”h. We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community in Belgium, and with Jewish communities all over Europe, at a time where anti-Semitism is on the rise, and attacks such as this one, and a knife attack on three Jews in Paris over the weekend, are unfortunately becoming more common. The international community needs to stand up and condemn these hate crimes in the strongest of terms, for we have already witnessed before how the smallest seeds of hatred grew into the largest of atrocities. We cannot allow the darkness to prevail.
