PM SHARON’S STATEMENT FOLLOWING ATTACKS AGAINST THE U.S.
September 12, 2001
On behalf of the people of Israel, I wish to send
our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the American
people, President Bush and the entire United States government,
following the terrorist attacks against the United States and
against our common values.
The fight against terror is an international struggle
of the free world against the forces of darkness who seek to destroy
our liberty and our way of life. I believe that together, we can
defeat these forces of evil. In this most difficult hour, all
Israelis stand as one with the American people. Our hearts are
with you and we are ready to provide any assistance at any time.
The Government of Israel has declared a day of mourning
tomorrow (12 Sept.), as we bow our heads and share in the sorrow
of the American people.
