Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation Expresses its Sorrow

The Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF) offers its deepest sorrow regarding the horrible loss of life and terrible destruction caused by today's attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. We condemn these attacks in the strongest possible terms. We urge that all steps be taken to apprehend whoever may have been responsible for these attacks. Those people who perpetrated this horrible crime must be caught and brought to justice as soon as possible. HCEF condemns all violence against innocent people as a means to achieve political ends.

Our prayers go out to all the families of the victims. We pray that God's grace may console and comfort them. We offer our sincere condolences to these families who have lost loved ones. We pray that the injured will make rapid recoveries from their injuries. The brave firefighters, police and all others who responded to this emergency deserve our heartfelt support and admiration for their extraordinary efforts to save as many lives as possible.

We offer our support for the work of the President of the United States in his efforts to unite Americans and bring normalcy once again to our country. We know his leadership in the aftermath of this "day of horror" will bring peace to those who suffered and justice for those who transgressed the bounds of all decency. We are certain that the United States will respond to this tragedy with all the resources at its disposal to mend and heal the damage inflicted on our nation. We call on all good members of the HCEF family to redouble their efforts to end violence and to bring justice and peace throughout the world. Our prayers are offered for our leaders to help our nation rebuild our lives with determination to end all violence and destruction forever.
