Nadler Statement on Twin Bus Bombings in Israel

Aug 30, 2004

New York -- Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) today made the following statement on the twin bus bombings in Beersheba, Israel:


"Once again, Hamas has taken credit for the murder of innocent Israeli civilians at the hand of homicide bombers. It is my hope that the leaders of Hamas who claim responsibility for organizing this attack are brought to justice immediately.

"This terrible tragedy shows the urgency with which the current Administration must re-engage in the Middle East to bring peace to the region. America's war on terror does not begin and end with the Taliban or al Qaeda. We must also help the Israeli government fight the Islamic terrorists who continue their murderous mission to harm innocent Israelis.

"My prayers are with the Israeli people today as they respond to this national tragedy."
