The United States issued a scathing condemnation Sunday of what it called the “brutal” murder on Sunday morning of pro-Israel advocate Ari Fuld, a dual American-Israeli citizen.
U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman tweeted a statement within a few short hours of Fuld’s death, saying, “America grieves as one of its citizens was brutally murdered by a Palestinian terrorist.
“Ari Fuld was a passionate defender of Israel and an American patriot.
“He represented the best of both countries and will be deeply missed.
“May his family be comforted and his memory be blessed,” Friedman wrote.
