Blood has been spilled today once again in the senseless death of Israeli citizens killed in a terrorist attack on a tour bus in a Bulgarian resort town.
It is no coincidence this attack comes on the 18th Anniversary of the attack on a Jewish community center in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires. On this date two decades ago, 85 people lost their lives.
The terrorists behind today’s suicide bombing, and others in the past, have one goal in mind; to invoke terror and fear in the hearts and minds of the Israeli people. This enemy, the same enemy that seeks to destroy the United States, will stop at nothing to destroy Israel and to kill its sons and daughters.
America must stand behind our strongest and most steadfast ally in the Middle East, Israel, to find the perpetrators behind today’s attack and ensure the protection of the nation and people of Israel.
It is essential freedom-loving people do not allow these acts of terrorism to prevent them from defending the principles of liberty, freedom and democracy.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated:
Israel's ambassador to the U.S., Dan Oren, spoke in no uncertain terms:
Well, we will surely choose the time and place and we will react firmly. The Israeli people, the state, the army of Israel will defend itself. And Iranians will know that they cannot shed Israeli blood with impunity.
Of course, the Obama administration's outrageous leaks regarding Israel have made the job considerably more difficult.
Godspeed, IDF. Godspeed.
