Montevideo, Uruguay

Dear Mr. Foreign Minister:

We write to express our sincere appreciation regarding the statement issued on November 18, 2014, in which Uruguay strongly condemned the brutal terrorist attack inside a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood in Jerusalem, killing four Jews at prayer, and an Israeli Druse policeman who was shot in the line of duty.

This condemnation of terrorism and hate is a clear demonstration of your important moral leadership, and sets an example for Latin America and the international community. 

Please be assured of our highest personal regard for the Government and People of Uruguay.

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
