The World Union Responds to Devastating Bombings in Sri Lanka: We Must Continue to Fight Against Hatred

wupj press release

The World Union for Progressive Judaism stands firmly with the people of Sri Lanka against the cowardly and devastating bombings in Churches and Hotels and on the holy day of Easter Sunday. To date over 200 people have died and twice that injured, as time passes those horrific numbers will become clearer and the extent of this terrorist act will reflect the utter hate of the extremists involved.

We send our our deepest condolences to the families of those murdered and wish a speedy recovery of those injured and to all the people of Sri Lanka who are feeling the pain and huge sadness of these acts.

We are sickened whether this wanton destruction occurs in Sri Lanka or elsewhere, humanity must remain strong to keep fighting these mindless acts of hate.
