Finsbury Park Terrorist Attack

Following the terrorist attack last night, Simon Johnson, Chief Executive of the Jewish Leadership Council said:

“We utterly condemn the vile, terrorist attack at the Finsbury Park Mosque last night. To target those at worship or observing their faith is a betrayal of our British values of tolerance, respect and kindness, on which our society is built. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families.”
