Condolences Sent to Davies’ Family

Download PDF for this date

The Greater Washington Jewish Community Council’s president Judge William C. Levy, has sent a letter of condolence on behalf of the Washington Jewish community to the family of the slain American Ambassador in Cyprus, Rodger Paul Davies. The letter declared that the Jewish community knows “too well and too often the tragedy of terrorism. Just two short summers ago eleven Israelis were massacred in Munich. Rodger Davies, then Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, was among those who eulogized their death, and called out for an end to terrorism.” Levy said also that it was ironic that a “similar tragedy perpetrated by men of similar contempt for human life snuffed out Rodger Davies’ life.”
