Ameinu unequivocally condemns the cold-blooded murder of the five members of the Fogel family in the West Bank settlement of Itamar.

May the memories of Udi, Ruth, Yoav, Elad and Hadas Fogel be a blessing to their surviving family.

“This act of terror can not pass silently,” said Ameinu President Kenneth Bob. “Nothing can justify the killing of innocents, particularly children. Israelis and Palestinians must remember their shared humanity and reject brutality and violence,” he added.
