Statement from the Press Secretary on the Terror Attack in Jerusalem

(Before It's News)

Yesterday, the Holy City of Jerusalem – which means “City of Peace” – became a scene of terror.  The people of the United States are heartbroken that terrorists brutally gunned down two Israeli police officers, and we extend our prayers and sympathies to the families of the victims.  The United States strongly condemns the terror attack.

There must be zero tolerance for terrorism.  It is incompatible with achieving peace and we must condemn it in the strongest terms, defeat it, and eradicate it.

The attack forced the government of Israel to temporarily close the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif to conduct its investigation.  Israel has assured the world that it has no intention to alter the status of this holy site, a decision which the United States applauds and welcomes.  We urge all leaders and people of good faith to be understanding as this process proceeds and reaches its conclusion.
