Americans For a Safe Israel expresses its condolences to the families of the victims of today’s heinous terror attack in Barcelona, Spain – as of this writing, at least thirteen murdered and 50 injured. We wish a full and speedy recovery to those wounded.
We have two thoughts on today’s attack:
1. This was a car ramming attack. Where do you think the terrorists learned and perfected this tactic?
2. These kinds of attacks have occurred on a regular basis in Israel, yet governments, especially many European governments, have not considered them to be terror attacks when they occur in Israel, just acts of violence. To paraphrase Jeremiah Wright, that noted American anti-Semite: In Europe the chickens have now come home to roost.
