“We condemn this act of unprecedented evil against humanity. Innocent civilians, Israeli citizens and other citizens of the world , found themselves under siege in their homes, offices, cars, and places of business,and celebrations . This is unspeakable terror ; the boundaries of humanity have been crossed.
“The PFN stands in solidarity with the people of Israel , against whom this horrific terror has been unleashed. We commiserate with you. Our prayers are with you in this hour of darkness.
“The PFN calls upon all people of goodwill everywhere, to unequivocally condemn this atrocious act by Hamas because it is an affront on the principles of peace, love, respect for human dignity and peaceful coexistence that are the very essence of our shared humanity.
“We stand with the people of Israel in this difficult time. We stand for justice, and we stand against the forces of darkness that seek to destroy the fabric of our human family.
