DJERBA SYNAGOGUE TERRORIST ATTACK
TUNISIA, MAY 10, 2023
People Authorized, by and through its founder, ambassadors, donors, members, supporters, volunteers, and affiliates, condemns, in the strongest language possible, the cowardly attack on May 10, 2023, that claimed the innocent lives of Jewish Pilgrims and members of the Tunisian Naval Guard, by one of their own, in cold blood.
While this act of evil took place in a Jewish Synagogue, it claimed the lives of Jews, Muslims, and possibly Christians illustrating that terror does not discriminate, and must be confronted wherever and whenever it exists.
While this is the most recent, it was not the first in the peaceful city of Ghriba, home of the oldest Synagogue, and second largest Jewish population in Africa who have lived in harmony for centuries with their Muslim and Christian brothers and sisters. The Synagogue was previously bombed on April 11, 2002, claiming the innocent lives of pilgrims and tourists including 14 German, 3 Tunisians, and 2 French Nationals, and injuring more than 30 others.
It is not acceptable in the 21st Century that such acts of violent hate continue to take place across the globe motivated by hate and manipulated ideologies and targeting innocent people based on religion, ethnicity, or color. Muslims, Jews, and Christians, as well as others, have been targeted and victimized. Today’s attack is especially alarming as it occurred during Jewish Heritage Month, as we stand in solidarity against all forms of hate, including antisemitism and islamophobia.
We call on the US Congress and Senate and United Nations to pass tougher legislation and resolution against all forms of hate crimes. The world cannot remain silent awaiting the next tragedy as schools, media, and governments, must be held accountable for preaching and condoning hate cultures.
