U.S. Condemns Bombing in Jerusalem

The United States today condemned the Palestine Liberation Organization for yesterday’s bombing in Jerusalem and said the bombing “absolutely” made the peace process more difficult. “We deplore the terrorist incident” and “condemn those who perpetrated it,” State Department spokesman Hodding Carter said. “Once again an act of violence has claimed human lives and inflicted suffering on innocent civilians. Coming as it did on the eve of the Jewish New Year makes the tragedy all the more poignant.”

REMINDER: There will be no Bulletin dated Sept. 24 due to Rosh Hashanah. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency Board, management and staff wishes the Bulletin readers a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.
