Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center Offers Deepest Sympathy After Seven Israelis Killed in Terrorist Bus Bombing in Bulgaria

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 18, 2012) - Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) offers our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the seven Israelis killed and dozens more injured in the terrorist bombing incident in Bulgaria earlier today.

"We are alarmed and distressed by the targeting of Jews around the world by terrorists who continue to demonstrate a complete lack of empathy in their indiscriminate antisemitic blood lust," said Avi Benlolo, President and CEO of FSWC. "It is surely no coincidence that this act of terror comes exactly 18 years to the day of the attack against the Jewish community in Buenos Aires, in which 85 innocent people were killed. Our prayers are with the loved ones of those who were murdered today, as are our hopes for a complete recovery for the injured."
