Peres Consoles Obama over ‘Heinous’ Terrorist Attack

“I was shocked to receive the news of the heinous terror attack near the finish line of the Boston marathon in which innocent civilians lost their lives,” President Shimon Peres wrote President Barack Obama.

Addressing him as “Mr. President, Dear Friend,” President Peres continued, “In my name and on behalf of the people of Israel, I want to extend my sincere condolences to the families of the victims and my good wishes for a full and speedy recovery to the wounded.

“This murderous act perpetrated against innocent people and children underscores yet again the indiscriminate inhumanity of these attacks that cause so much suffering.

“Our prayers are with you, and out hearts go out to the people of the city of Boston and of the United States at large in this time of mourning.”
