Stand for Israel told you about Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s words against Sunday’s horrific terrorist attack that left four young IDF soldiers dead. Now, as Israel Hayom reports, America and international figures have also spoken out against it:

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms today’s horrific vehicular attack by a terrorist in Jerusalem,” the U.S. State Department said in a statement. “There is absolutely no justification for these brutal and senseless attacks. We‎ condemn the glorification of terrorism now or at any time and call on all to send a clear message that terrorism must never be tolerated.”

Vice President Joe Biden tweeted, “I strongly condemn today’s cowardly terrorist attack in Jerusalem and pray for the victims, the wounded, and their families.”

U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro tweeted, “I vehemently condemn the terror attack in Jerusalem in which IDF troops were killed. Condolences to the families and prayers for recovery to those injured.”

The European Union said: “The EU condemns the murder of these four young Israelis, as well as any praise or incitement for terrorist acts. There can be no justification for such a crime. The EU will continue to work with those who seek peace and denounce those who pursue violence and terror.”

EU Ambassador to Israel Lars Faaborg-Anderson strongly denounced the attack, saying there was “no justification for such a crime.”

The U.N. Security Council also denounced the attack, saying its members “strongly condemn the terror attack in Jerusalem. The members of the U.N. Security Council express our deep sorrow and send our condolences to the families. Terrorism in all its forms and expressions is one of the most serious threats that endangers peace and security…”
