B’nai B’rith International is outraged over the horrific terrorist attacks that occurred in Brussels on Tuesday morning. Two explosions occurred at about 8:00 a.m. local time at the Brussels airport, and the second took place at a subway station about an hour later. The attack has killed at least 30 people and has injured more than 200.
“What happened today is horrifying and tragic, and we must continue to condemn this unbridled violence, not only in Brussels, but also around the world,” B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman said.
It is deeply troubling that these attacks are occurring on a regular basis all over the globe.
“These horrific attacks are an ongoing reminder of deep-seated evil that motivates those who have carried out this wanton bloodshed,” B’nai B’rith International Executive Vice President Daniel. S. Mariaschin said.
Governments must focus on the conditions that lead to violent extremism to ensure the security of their citizens. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Brussels and Belgium at this difficult time.
