NEW JERSEY ““ US Senator Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey) released the following statement in response to the bombing which took place today in Jerusalem: “Today’s act of brutality is another reminder that we must stand vigilant against terrorism ““ any and everywhere it exists. Inflicting damage and killing innocent civilians only hurts the prospects for peace in the region. No country would be expected to sit on its hands and simply allow its citizens to endure these kinds of vicious attacks without retaliating against the responsible party. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense. We all want peace in the region and hope that it will come very soon, but there can be no peace without security and so long as terrorists continue to kill innocents in Israel.”
