National NOW President Christian F. Nunes issued the following statement upon the attacks reported in Israel
“A terrorist army has invaded the land of Israel, murdering innocent civilians and taking whole communities hostage. ‘We are at war,’ Prime Minister Netanyahu told his nation, and today, the whole world is holding its breath.
While the day unfolds, NOW members are sticking fast to our core principles of human rights and freedom from fear, violence, and division. The rise in antisemitism and violent attacks on Jewish communities here and around the world underscore our alarm.
The people of Israel live in constant fear of days like today. This is what happens when hate has no boundaries.
NOW supports the right of the Jewish people to live without fear or violence, and we condemn antisemitism in all its forms.”
