“The vicious terrorist attack on innocent Israeli civilians in Bulgaria is deeply disturbing. The people of the City of New York know the pain that that these depraved acts can cause, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s families and to the people of the State of Israel.

“As this attack occurred on the 18th anniversary of the bombing of a Jewish community center in Argentina that killed 85 people, I must reaffirm my stand that no amount of time should diminish our resolution to bring all these murderers to justice. People in our city and throughout the world, must stand together in denouncing this horrific attack and declare the right of individuals to live in peace, safety, and security.”
