Statement: NSW Jewish Board of Deputies: Paris attacks.


At this difficult time we stand with the people of France and in particular with its Jewish community.

The appalling antisemitic attack at the kosher supermarket demonstrates yet again the many dangers that Jewish communities across Europe and the world face from Islamic extremism.

We also note that the cowardly attack on the Charlie Hebdo office only strengthens the international community’s resolve to protect and uphold crucial liberal democratic values, and our thoughts are with the families of the journalists and police officers who fell in the line of duty.

I have written to the French Consul-General to convey the support and condolences of the Jewish community of New South Wales.
